Today, I’m taking part in the Rapid Fire Book Tag, which I was tagged for by the absolutely lovely Bex, of My Shelf and Myself.
Onto the questions!
DEFINETELY physical books. I like the feeling of a book in my hamds, and ebooks really hurt and strain my eyes too much to read them.
2. Paperback or hardback?
While I think hardbacks can be pretty, they’re just too cumbersome to get properly comfy with and they’re also very expensive. Paperbacks.
3. Online or in-store book shopping?
I go to actual shops more often, and prefer that as an experience (e.g getting to browse), but I also order online and can see the benefits of that.
4. Trilogies or series?
Series! I love nothing than getting to know characters over a long series, and some of my favourite books are series.
5. Heroes or villains?
Heroes, for me. I’m a fan of a good villain, but I adore rooting for a hero (hoewever flawed) and getting behind them.
6. A book you want everyone to read?
I think I’ll go for Boy in the Tower for this one. I barely ever hear it being mentioned, and it’s so underrated!
7. Recommend an underrated book?
See the above answer, oops!
8. The last book you finished?
Editing Emma by Chloe Seager (scheculing this in advance!). Spoiler: I loved it quite a bit.
9. The last book you bought?
(Again, scheduling this in advance): the 2nd It Girl book by Katy Birchall. I realky enjoyed the 1st one and have been meaning to track this one down since it came out.
10. Weirdest thing you’ve ever used as a bookmark?
When I was younger, I used other books 🙈🙈🙈. Hence why all my childhood faves are basically falling apart.
11. Used books: yes or no?
I quite like used books! I’m not mega fussy about how my books look, as long as the contents are good.
12. Three favourite genres?
Why not read my post on this very subject, to find out? 😜😉
13. Borrow or buy?
I do both pretty much equally. I love owning books so I canreread the ones I really love, but I also really enjoy being able to support my local library.
14. Characters or plot?
Both are really important for a brilliant read, but I’m more drawn to character.
15. Long or short books?
I like between 300-400 pages usually.
16. Long or short chapters?
Short chapters! Makes me feel like I’m accomplishing so much more when I only have a short time to read. It also makes it easier to set targets.
17. Name the first 3 books you think of.
Spellchasers, Nevermoor, Wizards of Once.
18. Books that made you laugh or cry?
Laugh- Lobsters, Holly Smale, Holly Bourne, Editing Emma
Cry- Boy in the Tower always makes me emotional, partially because I love it so much now, I think
19. Our world or fictional worlds?
I’d like to visit some fictional worlds, but I think I’ll stay living in ours at the monent.
20. Audiobooks; yes or no?
No for me, as I don’t read them, but I have nothing at all against them and they help a lot of people to read.
21. Do you ever judge a book by it’s cover?
Yes! A nice cover can definetely influence me into reading something.
22. Book to movie or TV adaptations?
Don‘t have a preference!
23. Movie/TV show you preferred to its book?
Easily the John Green adaptations to date. Hated the books, totalky love the movies.
24. Series or standalones?
Series for sure! As I said, I love getting to see characters develop over a period of time and go on more than one adventure with them.
