Hope you are doing well! I was tagged by Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall to do the 20 Questions Book Tag. The questions sound really fun so I am excited to get started!
1. How many books is too many books in a series?
I have a short attention span and most of the books that I read are standalones. Three books in a series is probably all that I can tolerate. (Unless it is super awesomely epic like Harry Potter, that is.)
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I don’t mind cliffhangers at the end of a chapter because it keeps me turning the pages! However, it is annoying when there is a cliffhanger at the end of a book in the series.
3. Hardback or paperback?
Although I love the appearance of hardcover books, they are heavy to lug around all day since I do most of my reading on the bus and train. For this reason I appreciate the convenience of a paperback novel.
4. Favorite book?
I am in agreement with Kelly on this one! I just finished reading The Book Thief this month and it is my favourite book of all time.
5. Least favorite book?
There are many books that I find uninteresting or mediocre, but in terms of my least favourite book, Want takes the cake. I’ve never read a book that was so carelessly written!
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
I think love triangles can be done well, so yes!
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
I know! This is such a classic! I started listening to the audiobook of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and… just couldn’t get through the beginning. However it is a book that I want to finish reading one day.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
I am listening to the audiobook of Anne Frank and loving it so much.
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Both of these books are so cute and fun so they are usually the first books that I would recommend to a friend who is looking for a light and easy read. Did I mention that I just watched the Love Simon movie, and really really loved it!?
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
This is probably also the longest book that I’ve read! To this day I am still proud of reading all 1563 pages of Les Miserables 🙂
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
I was dying for this one to hit the shelves!
12. Favorite author?
This is a hard one! My favourite young adult authors are Jasmine Warga, Becky Albertalli, and V.E. Schwab.
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
I love borrowing from the library! My library also has Overdrive, which allows me to borrow eBooks and audiobooks conveniently from a phone app. The reality is that most of the books that I read, I will only read once, so it makes much more economic sense for me to borrow rather than buy.
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
The things that happen in this book are waaaay too unrealistic!
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Though I used to dog-ear books, I got out of that habit and now I like to keep my books in good condition. However, I could never keep track of where my bookmarks are, so I tend to reach for the next closest thing – receipts, scrap paper, business cards, etc. 🙂
16. A book you can always reread?
I’m with Kelly on this one as well! And actually, I am planning to re-read the HP series really really soon (so excited!!)
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Only if the music is soft and has no words that I can understand.
18. One POV or multiple POV’s?
I think I’ve enjoyed books that are both single or multiple POVs. However some multiple POV books annoy me when the POV changes are too frequent.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
There are books that are so addictive that I couldn’t help but read in one sitting (Simon Vs comes to mind!) However in most cases I end up reading a book over multiple days simply because I don’t have time.
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
I don’t tend to read books based on the cover anymore, since now I rely more on reviews from Goodreads and the blogging community. However I am so in love with the covers of this duology by Victoria Schwab!
I tag these wonderful peeps!
And whoever is interested in doing this tag!
Thanks for reading! How would you answer some of these questions? Do you have a favourite book (of all time)!? Have you seen the Love Simon movie?
