Rapid Fire Book Tag

Thanks so much to Book Princess Reviews for tagging me to do this post! As you all know, I luuurv tag posts!


EBOOKS OR PHYSICAL BOOKS?

Physical books all the way (I call them, human books). I mean, I like ebooks, they’re really, really handy for travel, but I love having the novel there, to hold and put on my bookshelf!

PAPERBACK OR HARDBACK?

Paperbacks. I like both kinds of books but I find it much easier to transport a paperback around with me, plus they’re usually a lot cheaper!

ONLINE OR IN-STORE BOOK SHOPPING?

Online. I don’t go out shopping that much and I feel like when I do go out I just pick up the first thing I come across, whereas, online, I take my time and I get loads of different options on covers!

TRILOGIES OR SERIES?

Trilogies. Not that I’ve read any yet, but series can go on forever and get worse and worse. At least with a trilogy it’s all wrapped up neatly and completed.

HEROES OR VILLAINS?

Ugh, I don’t know! I tend to prefer the villains I guess. Like in Jessica Jones (I know this isn’t book related!!), for example, I loved Kilgrave but Jessica Jones just pissed me off.

A BOOK YOU WANT EVERYONE TO READ?

tkamb
To Kill A Mockingbird 
because it’s such a beautiful novel with a really important lesson to learn.

RECOMMEND AN UNDERRATED BOOK.

I’ve talked about A Pleasure and a Calling before, but seriously, it’s so good and it deserves so much more attention than it’s got currently!

THE LAST BOOK YOU FINISHED?

At the time of writing this post, the last novel I finished was RattleI didn’t really like it as much as I was hoping to, but it wasn’t awful!

WEIRDEST THING YOU USED AS A BOOKMARK?

I used my plane boarding ticket as a bookmark for ages after I’d come back from the holiday, but I don’t think that’s too weird?

USED BOOKS, YES OR NO?

Yes. I love supporting charities and so I always buy books from charity shops! I don’t like them being too used but a couple of scuffs here and there are totally fine.

TOP THREE FAVORITE GENRES?

Mystery Thriller Suspense, Horror, and True Crime.

BORROW OR BUY?

I don’t ever borrow books, I only ever buy!

CHARACTERS OR PLOT?

Characters, because if they’re super shitty they can ruin an entire plot!

LONG OR SHORT BOOK?

Short, I guess. Short as in max 400 pages.

LONG OR SHORT CHAPTERS?

Long. I hate chapters that are literally a page long.

NAME THE FIRST THREE BOOKS YOU THINK OF.


American Psycho
which is one of my favourite ever books!
Good Me, Bad Mewhich is an excellent 5 star debut I’ve read recently.
Ready Player One, I haven’t even read this yet but I’m really looking forward to it.

BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR CRY?

Laugh because I hate crying (even though I do it a lot).

OUR WORLD OR FICTIONAL WORLDS?

Our world. I find it hard to picture fictional worlds, unless they’re based off of our world and they’ve just created made up names of cities that are based on New York or London etc.

AUDIOBOOKS: YES OR NO?

No. I tried them but I am really particular about voices. If it’s too posh or too spitty I can’t deal with it. I even turn down the radio in the car because I can’t stand some presenters voices.

DO YOU EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER?

All the time. Tacky covers make for tacky books, in my opinion.

BOOK TO MOVIE OR BOOK TO TV ADAPTATION?

Book to movie. TV series can go on for too long and ruin themselves in the process. Books to movies are usually better, but still not great.

SERIES OR STANDALONE?

Standalone. Since I don’t read YA, I don’t have a lot of series to choose from so I much prefer getting through a bunch of standalone novels.

  1. I so agree about the physical books! I love how you call them human books. I think that’s hilarious, but I’m going to have to keep myself from calling them that too. I definitely avoid the crying books too for the same reason. I loved reading your answers! Great post! 🙂
