– E-Book or Physical Book?
Physical. I like the tangibility of a book in my hands.
– Paperback or Hardback?
Paperback. Hardbacks are hard to hold and hard to shove/fit into a purse.
– Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
In Store. I do order online for a great sale, but mostly in store. I’d love to own a bookstore….
– Trilogies or Series?
Trilogies, though I’m guilty of buying too many series. That’s why I want trilogies. Less books ;P
– Heroes or Villains?
Heroes. I love a great villian, but the hero has to be amazing and my fave books have amazing heroes. Maybe this goes back to my childhood? If the villain wins, I’m beyond upset. I’m still a Disney Princess hoping that Prince Charming will save the day!
– A book you want everyone to read?
This is way too hard! I guess I’d say the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning…I sure recommend it enough 😉
– Recommend an underrated book?
Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver. I don’t even know if anyone on booktube has heard of this book, but I really enjoyed it on my original read through and I’m gonna read it again soon! #diversity #nativeamericans #family
– The last book you finished?
Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini
– The Last Book You Bought?
Uhh…I can’t remember if it was Trial By Fire or The Progeny by Tosca Lee.
– Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I honestly can’t think of anything weird, though I’m sure I’ve done it. The only thing I recall is paper…random folded post-it notes or ripped from a magazine.
– Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes!! The book needs to be in decent or excellent condition, but I adore book sales and come home with massive hauls!
– Top Three Favourite Genres?
Mystery, Fantasy and a lil Sci-Fi. It’s mostly mysteries and fantasy for me!
– Borrow or Buy?
Buy. I don’t mind borrowing, but I’m always so afraid that something will happen to their book and I’d just DIE if it did. So, since I’m a worry wart…I buy or borrow for keeps lol
– Characters or Plot?
This is hard for me. I’d love to say “Character Driven books for sure!” I need excellent characters that I can relate too or want to be friends with. Yet, if that plot doesn’t pull me through…the greatest characters can’t save it for me.
– Long or Short Books?
Short. I get distracted way too easily and long books make me feel like a loser when it takes me months to finish. I just can’t….and yet I keep buying them. Thanks, Winter ;P
– Long or Short Chapters?
Short, but I hate books with 2 pages in a chapter. That’s so lame. Don’t do that. I like short chapters, because then I feel like I’m accomplishing something when I read 4 chapters today. If I read and read and read….and that’s just chapter one…I’m gonna have a hard time. Trial By Fire did that to me. I felt like the chapters were too long.
– Name The First Three Books You Think Of…
Cinder, Raven Boys, The Progeny
– Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?
Sophie Kinsella books always make me laugh. If I need a good laugh out loud moment (and then hide and pretend I didn’t just do that!), I turn to Sophie Kinsella. Cry…the only book that’s made me cry (that I can recall) is The Raven King and I can’t tell you why cuz it’s a spoiler…probably not one you’d expect though…so no worries!
– Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional Worlds. I love my family and friends, but I wanna live in Video Game worlds. I’ll take any Final Fantasy location, Hyrule would be nice…Ooo and Can I live on the Enterprise with Geordi La Forge… 😉
– Audiobooks: Yes or No?
No thanks. I don’t have a reason. I think for long drives it would be great, but then I couldn’t read the book at night without owning both copies. That would stink. So, I’d say no but I’m not against it.
– Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Yeah, who doesn’t? If it looks good…I’m more likely to pick it up and read the back or search for it on Goodreads. So, yeah.
– Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Wellllll….I don’t like most movie adaptations, but watching a book come to life on the big screen is pretty cool (if they somehow manage to do it justice). Yet, TV means that they can do it week after week. If done well, that’s kinda cool.
– A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
I was two seconds from saying “Never! The book is ALWAYS better” but then….Shannara came to mind. Terry Brooks creates these amazing scenarios and worlds, but then his books fall flat. I’ve been disappointed by the ones I’ve picked up. The concept of Shannara was a genius one and thankfully MTV went with it. I love the show!
– Series or Standalone’s?
I’d love to say Standalone’s. I kinda prefer them, because it’s once and done. I don’t have to buy 10 books to complete the story. Yet, I still find myself constantly buying series. I guess I enjoy more time with my characters and being sucked into their worlds. Also, the best fantasy stories are almost always series. So that’s a given.
I tag Jody at thatonegirlwhoreads.wordpress.com (if two people Tag you, does that mean you have to do it? Like a Double Dare? LMAO!!! I double dog dare you!), also Jen at combustiblereviews.com and Vicky at booksandstrips.wordpress.com. I’ve been outta the game for awhile, I hope you ladies haven’t done this one yet! I’d also love to see Ashley at BookishRealm do this and I’ve missed seeing more of Heather at pinkzebrareads…so I want her to do this too! Yaay!! Can’t wait to read/watch you!!!
