I was tagged by Lilian to complete this tag. I love bookish tags, so I’m so excited for this one! I recommend checking out Lily’s blog, green tea with books. It’s so aesthetically pleasing and she always posts quality content. 👌
~ How many books are too many in a series? ~
If I like a series enough, then I won’t mind how many books are in the series! However, I kinda like trilogies. It feels like just the right amount.
~ How do you feel about cliff-hangers? ~
Grrr! Such a love-hate relationship here. I appreciate that they get me to read the next book, but at the same time it’s torture! 😅
~ Hardback or paperback? ~
~ Favourite book? ~
Just no. I can’t. No.
~ Least favourite book? ~
This is a hard one because if I really don’t like a book, I’ll stop reading it! So most books that I read I really enjoy! Anyway, it’s probably ‘A Prairie Tale’ by Melissa Gilbert. Little House on the Prairie is one of my all-time favourite TV shows, so I was excited to read her autobiography. You’d think that if she was using the fact that she starred in LHOTP in her title to reel people in that there’d be lots of content about what it was like working on the show and behind the scenes information, right? That’s what I was there for. I was very disappointed that it was barely touched on. Not only that, I found that I did not connect with her at all and that she came across as an entitled and nasty person. The only reason I read to the end was my hope that there would be some interesting behind the scenes info. 😶
~ Love Triangle… yes or no? ~
Hmm, I don’t know how to answer this one. To me, it’s more about how the author writes it than what it’s about.
~ The most recent book you couldn’t finish? ~
‘The Dressmaker’ by Rosalie Hamm. I loved the movie, but I didn’t get very far through the book.
~ A book you’re currently reading? ~
‘Cress’ by Marissa Meyer!
~ The last book you recommended to someone? ~
I honestly don’t remember. I don’t usually have book-ish discussions with people outside of this blog. 😄
~ Oldest book you’ve read (based on publication date)? ~
Aside from the Bible, ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’ by John Bunyan (1678).
~ Newest book you’ve read (based on publication date)? ~
‘Plot Bunny to Novel: a simple guide to turning your ideas into stories’ by Kellyn Roth.
~ Favourite author? ~
That’s hard!! It was Karen Kingsbury for a long time, but the last couple of books that I’ve read of hers I haven’t liked as much. So I’m not sure now.
~ Buying books or borrowing them? ~
Borrowing! The library is what keeps me from being broke—no, in debt! I like borrowing books to read them for the first time. If I really love a book so much that I want to read it over and over, then I would definitely consider buying it! But seeing as I have no shelving in my room and use an over-stuffed box to keep my books in, I try not to buy books at this point. 😉
~ A book you dislike that everyone else loves? ~
I wouldn’t say everyone else loves this, but such a high rate of people do. ‘Leaving’ by Karen Kingsbury I found to be very disappointing.
~ Bookmarks or dog-ears? ~
~ A book you can reread over and over? ~
‘Waterfall’ by Lisa Tawn Bergren. Whilst I haven’t yet reread this book, I can definitely see myself rereading it numerous times! 🤩
~ Can you read while listening to music? ~
~ Multiple POVs or one POV? ~
I like both. I don’t actually think I prefer one over the other. Again, it’s more how the author executes this that matters to me.
~ Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days on average? ~
Definitely over multiple days. The only times I read in one sitting is if I have way too much time on my hands like when I’m sick (I’m not a fast reader, so I have to set aside a lot of time to do this) or if I’m so absorbed by the book that I neglect everything else (*cough* ‘The Hunger Games’).
~ Who do you tag? ~
What are your answers to some of these questions?
