The 20 Questions Book Tag

Copy of Copy of Copy of MINI-REVIEW-4

Hello everyone!

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?

19063

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?

32333174

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?

7082

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?

5515

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)

24280

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 πŸ™‚

11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)

24909347

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,Β 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. πŸ™‚

16. A book you can always reread?

3

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!

    Ooooh, I have been seeing this tag around the blogosphere and contemplated just doing it without being tagged, so thanks for taking care of that for me haha

    Oh lovely answers for this tag! I’m with you about hardcovers, they are really pretty, but really annoying as well to carry around when you’re doing most of your reading on trains, haha. I much prefer paperbacks for that, too πŸ˜€
    Thank you so much for tagging me! πŸ™‚

      Yes! I haven’t attempted bringing a hardcover onto the train yet, sometimes even a paperback book is a struggle (when you’re carrying a bag, a lunch bag, an umbrella and you don’t have a seat!)
      You’re welcome ❀

    Oh great answers for this tag Sophie. I agree with you about hardcovers, they’re prettier and sturdier but so heavy too (then again I read mostly on my Kindle and that’s even less weight in my bag every day!) πŸ˜€ The Book Thief is definitely one of my all-time favourites, I really really need to read it again soon, and V.E. Schwab and Becky Albertalli are amazing authors aren’t they? I still need to read something by Jasmine Warga but the fact that she’s on your list with the other two tells me she’s probably amazing as well.
    Great post! πŸ˜€ ❀

      Hello Beth ❀
      I love my Kindle so much! It's so light to carry around and I love that I can store more than one book on it. It is perfect for reading on a commute πŸ™‚
      I am glad to hear that you enjoyed The Book Thief as well. Jasmine Warga's books are so easy to read and her writing really touches my heart. Hope you will have a chance to read her books in the future πŸ™‚
      Thanks Beth ❀

        Hi, and yes definitely. If I tried to carry as many books as I have on my Kindle around as physical copies I’d break something. πŸ™‚
        I’ll have to try and get around to her books soon, I think I have one of her releases on my TBR list so I’ll get around to it one day I’m sure. πŸ™‚
        That’s all right. ❀️

    I feel like trilogies are popular cuz they’re the perfect length. Long enough, but not too long! I like love triangles too when they’re done well! I’m exactly the same, I used to dog-ear, now I don’t, but I always just use random scraps of paper instead of bookmarks lol. And I don’t like when POV shifts are too frequent either.

    Great answers Sophie! I enjoy well done love triangles. I think the best love triangles are on k-dramas, funny enough. I was quite done with most of them until I started watching them and they make they seem so realistic even when the show itself maybe campy or extreme humor. Now I can spot a really well done love triangle in books too!
