Thank you Hadeer at Hadeer Writes for tagging me to do this tag!! This one was fun- usually I spend too much time on my answers for tags so I tried to really stick to the “rapid fire” spirit of this one and just go with my gut answers. I really need to overthink less often.
Question 1: E-books or Physical Books?
Physical! I love ebooks when I’m traveling though.
Question 2: Paperbacks or Hardbacks?
Hmmm this is tricky, but I think overall I’m going to go with paperbacks, even though hardcovers can be so pretty. Paperbacks are just easier to read and I enjoy the feel of them more.
Question 3: Online or In-store Shopping?
Browse in-store, go home and buy for cheaper online.
Question 4: Trilogies or Series?
I like series of 4 books best I think.
Question 5: Heroes or Villains?
I’m thinking….a heroic villain.
Question 6: A Book You Want Everyone To Read
Harry Potter, but I feel like near everyone has probably given it a shot at one point or another, so……ahh I don’t know, I always tell people to read The Raven Cycle so I can get people to obsesses with me. Whatever book I’m currently obsessed with I want people to read.
Question 7: The Last Book You Finished
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. Here’s my review for it.
Question 8: The Last Book You Bought
The Bells by Richard Harvell. It was one of those $1.99 ebook deals and I kind of just bought it on impulse, but it may be the best two dollars I’ve spent. I’m reading it now and it’s horrifying and fantastic.
Question 9: Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark
The TV remote, my phone, a leaf or blade of grass when I’ve been reading outside…once I used money, put a book away to read another time, came back to it months later and had some surprise $$.
Question 10: Used Book Yes or No?
Yeah! I own plenty of used books. I especially like ones that have notes from previous owners.
Question 11: Favorite Book Genre
If I must choose, I think I say…fantasy.
Question 12: Buy or Borrow?
Question 13: Characters or Plot?
Question 14: Long or Short Books?
Question 15: Long or Short Chapters?
Umm maybe medium? Really whatever works for the book, it works for me.
Question 16: Name the first three books you think of
Uh uh uh Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, and Homer’s Iliad.
Question 17: Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry
Question 18: Audiobooks Yes or No?
Yes for books I love that I’ve already read myself, and for books I find difficult to physically read or concentrate on- classics or older books with dense writing styles that might be clearer if read by someone. Kind of like watching a play vs. reading one. Sometimes I need someone else’s voice to understand better.
Question 19: Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
Question 20: Book to Movie or TV adaptation?
I guess I’ll say TV for series adaptations, movies for stand alones. But whatever works, really. I just watched Anne of Green Gable’s “Anne with an E” adaptation on Netflix and I LOVED IT.
Question 21: A Movie or TV show you preferred to the book
I liked the Maze Runner movie, really disliked the book.
Question 22: Series or Standalones?
Both. Depends on my mood.
There we have it. I don’t have enough time to tag anyone before I take off on a little trip for the weekend (my rapid fire wasn’t as rapid as I’d thought it’d be), so if you want to do this one, I say go for it!! Just tag me so I can see your answers 🙂
Have a great weekend, guys! ❤
