Since this is supposed to be rapid fire, I’m going to set out the questions and BOLD my answer for the this or that style questions. I will type out a response if I think one is needed! But the initial answering will be done by bolding my answer as quickly as I can so I can stick to the whole ‘not really thinking about your answer’ part of the tag. I will then go back and type answer to the actual questions!
– E-Book or Physical Book?
My reason for physical over e-book is purely because I love collecting them and having physical books around me. I am way happier now to read an e-book than ever before, but I am still a hoarder… and love having the physical books in my collection.
– Paperback or Hardback?
I love both, but I went with Hardback because they are (to me) more aesthetically pleasing on my bookshelf!
– Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
I love shopping in store, but it’s just cheaper online…
– Trilogies or Series?
I love both, but I can’t deny that series’ just make me happier because there is more room to discover the world and the characters. Most of my favourite sets are series as opposed to trilogies.
– Heroes or Villains?
I love a good hero. Villains are great, but odds are, I want to know about the hero and would rather the villain just have a novella if they really need one (for example Fairest by Marissa Meyer!)
– A book you want everyone to read?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
– Recommend an underrated book?
Ready Player- No um. I don’t think that could be considered underrated anymore since it’s getting a movie made and directed by Steven Spielberg…
Let’s think then…
Okay, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Not many people I know have read this book, but when someone I recommend it to DOES read it, they always enjoy it! Such a good book!
– The last book you finished?
The Crown by Kiera Cass
– The Last Book You Bought?
I last bought an audiobook, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.
– Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I’ve used bus tickets and therefore on more than one occasion had to purchase the ticket again because I ‘lost’ the ticket… Reality, I just forgot I was using it as a bookmark.
– Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes IF the condition is like new. I don’t mind creases on the spine as such, as it’s been read so of course there will be cracks, but I don’t want the pages to be damaged or discoloured. I want them to look like new on my shelf… But I couldn’t afford to always buy new books!
– Top Three Favourite Genres?
Paranormal / Supernatural
– Borrow or Buy?
I hate borrowing books because that means I have to give them back… So buy, all the way.
– Characters or Plot?
This one was tricky for me. I went with plot because there have been books where I didn’t like the characters but enjoyed the plot so I stuck it out and ended up loving the book. There has not been a book, that I can think of, where I loved the characters hated the plot and still ended up enjoying the book.
– Long or Short Books?
This is a bad answer. I selected long, but in truth I don’t want a short or a long book. I want between 300 and 500 pages, that to me is a good length book. I’m not sure if that’s considered long or short, but that’s what I’m after!
– Long or Short Chapters?
Short! Easy! It makes you think that you’re getting through the book quickly, even if you might not be!
– Name The First Three Books You Think Of…
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Ha, funnily enough I know why I instantly thought of all of those books! The Selection because I’m a little obessed with this series right now. Ready Player One because it’s being filmed where I live at the moment. And finally, City of Bones because I was on Netflix before doing this tag and saw The Shadowhunter series! Ha.
– Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
I love emotions. And if a book can make me cry, then it’s connected with me in a way that is rare. But I absolutely love it when a book can make me cry.
– Our World or Fictional Worlds?
I love both, and really didn’t know what to select.I went with our world because of the last few books that I had read and came to mind, they’re all set in our world but in the future for example, Ready Player One is set in the future, The Red Pyramid is set in our world, they just have access to the duat, and The Fill-In Boyfriend is literally set in the present.
– Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Yes, I absolutely love them. Though I’m not willing to pay the price for them so I have an audible subscription that gets me one audiobook a month. I wish I could afford more! But one is fine!
– Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Yes… I hate doing it, but yes I do. I’m more likely to buy a book or look at a book if it has a pretty cover or spine… Plus then they look good on my bookshelf!
– Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
I chose book to movie purely because I’ve seen more of these than TV adaptations.
– A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
The Shadowhunter Series on Netflix. I am not a fan of City of Bones so I wasn’t too hyped for the show, but I love the show!
– Series or Standalone’s?
Series! I prefer having a lot of time in one world, across a few books! Rather than a stand alone where you know when that book is over, it’s over. Of course I then have this feeling when it comes to a final book in a series as well, ha.
