Rapid Fire Book Tag

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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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,

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?

I’ve used plenty of odd things, but probably a sock.

  1. 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.

  1. Top Three Favorite Genres?

Fantasy, contemporary, dystopian.

  1. Borrow or Buy?

Borrow. I hardly ever reread books, so buying them would be a waste of money.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional Worlds 1000%. They just seem more exciting and interesting than the world we live in today.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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!
