I was tagged by Riana @Fictional Worlds & Me and Beth @Reading Every Night to do this tag. Thank you both once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out their blogs!
Also, I’m not tagging anyone specific. If you feel like doing this tag consider yourself tagged by me! 😉 This post is rather long, so I shall keep this beginning part short. Plus I don’t really have much to add to this. Let’s just get into the questions!
1. How many books is too many books in a series?
Over 10? I don’t really know. It depends on the author and if they are dragging out the story or not.
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I both love and hate them. They are great to make you pick up the next book in the series, but if the next book isn’t out yet it’s torture waiting for it to come out. Also it’s great when chapters end in cliffhangers, as I’m even more motivated to continue reading. Obviously they need to be well done as well, otherwise there really is no point to them.
3. Hardcopy or paperback?
This is a rather hard choice for me. If I have to pick one I would pick paperback. They are just easier to read, plus I can take them with me easier. Though I like hardcovers as well.
4. Favourite book?
This is an impossible question for me to answer. I have many books that I would consider to be my favourites! Picking just one is simply not possible. I’m going to choose four books that first came to my mind.
(But there are many more I could pick!)
5. Least favourite book?
There are quite a few books out there that I very much dislike. For this question I decided to go with four of my least favourite classics
(they are all 1 stars), because of course I just couldn’t pick one book as the answer.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
No. They are rarely, if ever, done well.
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
I don’t DNF books, so I don’t have an answer for this question. When I’m not enjoying a book I will skim-read it, but I won’t outright DNF it.
(Huh, I should probably start DNF-ing books that I’m not enjoying.)
8. A book you’re currently reading?
I’m currently reading and loving Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch, which is the second book in his Gentlemen Bastards series. Earlier this year I reread the first book in the series, The Lies of Locke Lamora, and now I’m finally reading the second book. I can’t believe that I have waited this long to read it, as I’m loving it so much!
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Actually the last book that I recommended to someone was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The person who I recommended it to was my mom, as we were just recently talking about books and what we have been reading. Obviously I had to tell her about this brilliant book and hopefully she will read it in the future
(once a translated edition comes out, as she can’t read in English).
10. Oldest book you’ve read?
The oldest books that I have read are The Odyssey and The Iliad by Homer. They are both from 720 BC. Obviously I took this question as the oldest book published, not the oldest edition of a book that I have read. I couldn’t answer the later one even if I tried, as I honestly have no idea.
11. Newest book you’ve read?
According to Goodreads the newest released book that I have read is Heartwood Box by Ann Aguirre. This book came out on the 9th of July 2019. Sadly I didn’t enjoy Heartwood Box all that much, but that isn’t the question so I shall move on.
12. Favourite author?
I have many authors that I adore and would consider my favourites. Two of my favourite authors are Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Schwab! They write such fantastic books and I want to read everything that they have published and will publish in the future.
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
Which one I do or which one I prefer? I buy all the books that I read, though I want to join a library soon. So my answer is going to be a combination of both of those.
14. A book you dislike that everyone seems to like?
The first one that came to my mind was The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I just didn’t click with this book. I found it to be very underwhelming. Especially after I heard so many wonderful things about it from everyone else. I didn’t like any of the characters, to be honest I was annoyed with them throughout the whole story. The story didn’t capture me either. I guess this book just wasn’t my cup of tea. Though I must say that I did enjoy the writing style.
15. Bookmarks or dogears?
Bookmarks. I have always used bookmarks when reading. Even when I was little I used pieces of paper to keep track of where I was in the story. Using bookmarks has just become such a habit for me and I can’t even imagine dogearing pages.
16. A book you can always reread?
I’m going with a cliche answer for this question. But I would be lying if I didn’t answer this question in this way. The book, or rather series, that I can always reread is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I have already reread this series many times and I plan on rereading it in the future as well. Harry Potter is my comfort series and I always love rereading it.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Yes and no. I do like listening to classical music while reading, so yes in that sense. I don’t listen to music with lyrics when reading, I find myself getting distracted by them.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
It depends on the book and genre. I’m actually not that picky when it comes to POVs. I do prefer third person POVs, but that is not even the question asked. So, when reading contemporary I prefer one POV. While with fantasy I enjoy multiple POVs. Though there are instances when I enjoy the opposite.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Over multiple days. I don’t usually have the time or concentration to read a book in one sitting. I actually prefer reading books over multiple days, as it allows me to be immersed in a story for a longer time period. Of course there are exceptions and sometimes I’ll read a book in a day
(usually graphic novels or shorter books).
20. One book you read because of the cover?
I don’t think there is a book that I have solely read because of the cover. I always read the synopsis to find out if it’s something that I’m interested in. Recently I read The Art of Taxidermy by Sharon Kernot, which is a book that I requested for review. This book fits this question, as the cover was what drew me to it and made me want to read it.
How would you answer any of these questions? Let me know in the comments below!
Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!
