I’m sort of running out of ideas, so I’ve been resorting to book tags for good posts. I found this book tag on booktube as I was exploring. I liked the questions involved so let’s go!
*Credit to GirlReading for creating this book tag
- Paperback or Hardback?
I love the look and aesthetic of Hardcover books, but I would have to go with paperback. They are very convenient to travel with, and the size of it also makes it easier to read.
- Online or Instore Book Shopping?
The experience of Instore book shopping is great, but the prices are usually awful. So, I would probably say online. It may not be as fun, but there are way better deals and a bigger variety of books to buy,
- Trilogies or Series?
Trilogies 100%. Series are usually way too long and end up getting really repetitive after a while. With a trilogy, the storyline is just long enough so that lots of things happen, but there won’t be too much repetition.
- Heroes or Villains?
Well, it depends on the book. Sometimes, the villain is just such a complex and intriguing character, and the hero is annoying. It mostly depends on the book for this question.
- A book you want everyone to read?
Animal Farm. It’s an amazing book, and it’s pretty funny too. It also portrays politics well, so definitely Animal Farm.
- Recommend an underrated book?
This was a pretty recent release, but Someday, Somewhere by Lindsay Champion was really good. I received an e-ARC a few weeks before its release date, and I would definitely recommend it.
- The last book you finished?
The last book I completely finished was Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. But if you count DNFed books, then The Queen’s Rising was my most recent read.
- The Last Book You Bought?
I hardly ever buy books, so I really don’t remember. But, it’s probably one of the classics I bought, most likely War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy.
- Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I’ve used plenty of odd things, but probably a sock.
- Used Books: Yes or No?
I definitely think used book are a great option if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on books. But, I would just hope you don’t get books that are in awful condition.
- Top Three Favorite Genres?
Fantasy, contemporary, dystopian.
- Borrow or Buy?
Borrow. I hardly ever reread books, so buying them would be a waste of money.
- Characters or Plot?
I would say I look for good plots rather than characters. Plots are the main foundation and essence of a book, and if it is crappy, then the entire story is bad. If a character is bad, that doesn’t necessarily mean the book is bad.
- Long or Short Books?
It depends. I would say medium size books, but I usually lean towards short books since longer books tend to drag on and on and it starts to get boring.
- Long or Short Chapters?
Short chapters. That way, I can easily stop and bookmark where I’m at, rather than continuing the super long chapter.
- Name The First Three books You Think Of…
A Court of Thorns and Roses (I haven’t even read this book yet). Animal Farm. I’ll Give You The Sun.
- Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
A book that made me laugh a lot was The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian. I don’t know why I found it so funny, but it kept making me crack up.
- Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional Worlds 1000%. They just seem more exciting and interesting than the world we live in today.
- Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Ehhhhh, I mean I don’t hate audiobooks. I just feel like the pace that the narrators read at is too slow for me, so I usually don’t like audiobooks. I will have to go with a no for this one.
- Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
I think books tend to do better as movies instead of TV shows. It’s hard to break a book apart to different episodes and such, so I think I prefer a book to movie adaptation.
- A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
I never liked the Hunger Games trilogy, but the movies weren’t bad. I don’t think they are phenomenal, but they were definitely better than the book.
- Series or Standalones?
It mainly depends on the genre and story line. For fantasy, I typically prefer series since there is a lot of world building involved. However, there are a few standalone fantasy books I have enjoyed. For regular contemporary fiction I prefer standalones. But it mainly depends on the story and plot of the book.
That was the longest tag I’ve ever done, but I do like the simple questions involved. I hope you enjoyed this tag, and comment down below some other post ideas you would like to see! Happy reading!
