Thanks to Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek for tagging me!!! Check out his blog, not only does he talk about books but he also has fantastic writing.
On to the questions!!!
- E-book or Physical book?
Can I say both? I like to read my new adults/contemporaries on my kindle and all my other books like Fantasy, Paranormal, and Versed/Poetry books etc. as Physical. I just love holding the book in my hand and feeling the pages. And New Adult physical books are expensive compared to how much I pay on the kindle plus I read those so quick AND THEY DON’T HAVE A MAP!
- Paperback or Hardback?
It all depends. I love me some paperback though because they aren’t heavy on the hands, although I do own TONS of hardbacks and if it’s a series, I try to make sure they all match.
- Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
Online because it’s cheaper and for some reason, the books always comes in perfect condition versus when I go to the store and they look beaten up. I also like to go in-store though, especially Strands because it’s cheap just for some book therapy. ONLINE for sure though plus coupons for days on top of that cheaper price.
- Trilogies or Series?
Hmmmmm it really depends. I’ve read some amazing trilogies and series. As long as the in-between books don’t suffer from second/third book syndrome, then I don’t really care.
- Heroes or Villains?
Going with Drew’s answer and saying anti-hero. I love their brains and mentality and screwed up way of thinking. Then again, I just want to hug them half the time and be like “you’ll be okay, I understand why you’re that way”
- A Book You Want Everyone To Read?
I know this a very hyped book in the book community, however I’m just never going to stop talking about it. It’s a fantasy with a group of 6 outcast set on a heist. I don’t have a review of it because I did read this book way before I ever thought of blogging. I love this book so much because of how dark it is and it has very well displayed diversity: Disability, PoC, LGTBQ+. However you can check it out on Goodreads, if you’re interested in checking out.
- Recommend an Underrated Author?
Here I am once again mentioning the awesome C.C. Hunter. I don’t ever see her anywhere and when I do, I am usually just as in shock as the person who knows I’m aware of this author. She has written the Shadow Falls series and the spin off, Shadow Falls: After Dark. It’s a YA Paranormal series set in a boarding school for the “
- The Last Book You Finished?
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. It is the first book in The Nevernight Chronicles and you can find my book review here.
- Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
Gum wrapping paper. One day I had started this new book and forgot to take a bookmark with me to work, so I looked around my bag and used that.
- Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes. I don’t mind them, even though I don’t have tons of used books myself. But I have some that are almost brand spanking new and I got them for SUPER CHEAP!
- Top Three Favorite Genres?
Fantasy, New Adult, and YA
- Borrow or Buy?
BUY. buy buy buy!! I hate borrowing things from people. Point, period, blank.
- Character or Plot?
Both. I feel like in order for a book to excel, you need both equally.
- Long or Short Books?
I really think it all depends on the genre/plot of the book. Like what is the trying to accomplish? If it’s a contemporary/new adult, then I prefer those to be short and to the point. If it’s a fantasy, dystopian, or paranormal, then I prefer those to be long because of the world building and character development. I like when those kind of books take their time building a very well developed world/characters.
- Name The First Three Books You Think Of
-Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
-Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
-Consequences by Aleatha Romig
- Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?
I feel like I’ve answered this before but I’m gonna go with cry. I always remember those more because I’m so freaking sensitive!!!
- Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional. I read to escape.
- Audiobooks: Yes or No?
HELL. TO. THE. NO.
- Do You Ever Judge a Book by it’s Cover?
Guilty as charged, yes I do.
- Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
I think it depends on the book. If it’s a long series, then I would say TV. If it’s a standalone or trilogy, then movie. I mean I actually prefer none but it is what it is.
- A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
I would have to go with The Maze Runner. That book was horrible in my opinion but the movies are pretty good, not going to lie.
- Series or Standalone’s?
