I first saw this tag on Naz’s blog over at Read Diverse Books. Although it seems like a lot of questions to get through (in all honesty, it is a lot of questions) I think they might help you to get to know me a little bit better (bookishwise at least).
Let us begin!
1. E-book or Physical Book?
It depends on the font size if I’m being honest. I do love my Kindle with a fiery passion because I can make the font as big as I want. So there’s a tie.
2. Paperback or Hardback?
Paperbacks all the way. They are much cheaper and much more comfortable to hold.
3. Online or in store book shopping?
I buy all my books online although I do love spending hours (lireally) browsing through bookshelves and just staring at books.
4. Trilogies or Series?
It is the story that matters the most doesn’t it?
5. Heroes or Villains?
I simply adore well crafted villains. The more psychologically ambiguous the better.
6. A book you want everyone to read?
First of all: it is impossible to choose just one. I love recommending books to people, so let me bend the rules a little bit and give you more than one recommendation.
7. Recommend an underrated book?
Another difficult one. My most beloved books are rarely talked about. One I’ll recommend might appeal to everyone. Erich Segal’s Love Story tells a tragic love story. There’s also a movie adaptation of it. Even though it is critically acclaimed I don’t know many people who’ve read it (or seen the movie for that matter).
8. The last book you finished?
Batman: The Man Who Laughs – Ed Brubaker
9. The last book you bought?
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
10. Weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookmark?
11. Used books: Yes or no?
12. Top three favorite genres?
13. Borrow or buy?
I do love my library, so borrow obviously.
14. Characters or plot?
Both need to be written well to captivate the reader, so…
15. Long or short books?
It doesn’t really matter
16. Long or short chapters?
See question 15
17. Name the first book you think of…
18. Books that make you laugh or cry?
Both, depending on the mood.
19. Our world or fictional worlds?
20. Audiobooks: Yes or no?
YES! You can read with your eyes closed and multitask like a pro. Who’d say no to that?
21. Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
Shame on me…
22. Book to movie or book to TV adaptations?
I do enjoy both, again, depending on the story.
23. A movie or TV show you preferred to its book?
Hands down Bridget Jones’s Diary. The book lacks everything I love about the movie.
24. Series or standalones?
I do enjoy both. Long series do intimidate me though.
It took a while but I did it!
