Rapid Fire Book Tag

Screen Shot 2017-01-19 at 22.16.03.png

Hey everyone! I was tagged by the wonderful Sophie @ Blameitonchocolate not so long ago. Sophie is such a lovely blogger and has review, tags, giveaways and more on her blog! Be sure to check her out!

Without further ado, here is the rapid fire book tag!

The Questions:

1) E-book or Physical book?

At the minute I have been reading a lot of e-books. But nothing can beat the satisfaction of having the physical book in your hands.

2) Paperback or Hardback?

I would always pick Paperback over Hardback. Hardbacks are too bulky and heavy for me even if they are beautiful. I would much rather have the light-weight Paperback.

3) Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

Going into bookstores is one of my favourite hobbies. The staff in my local bookstores all know me by name because of how often I go to the bookstores. They even recommend books to me when I walk in. I do shop online sometimes, the books are cheaper online but I like to support my local bookstores.

4) Trilogies or Series?

I don’t mind either way, but trilogies tend to round the story off a lot better than series in my opinion. Plus, series can sometime be a little too long.

5) Heroes or Villains?

Again, I don’t mind either way. If they are well written I will enjoy both. As long as the villains aren’t miserable and the heroes aren’t impeccable.

6) A Book You Want Everyone To Read?

I know that this is going to sound stereotypical but I have to say Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling. I just think everyone should at least give it a chance because they it is part of an incredible series.

7) Recommend an Underrated Author?

I would have to say Kim Slater. I loved her book A Seven Letter Word and she really does not get the credit that she should do for the fantastic books that she has written. If you are a fan of young adult and coming-of-age stories I would check her out!

8) The Last Book You Finished?

All I Ever Wanted by Lucy Dillon

9) Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?

I use receipts as bookmarks quite often, as well as postcards. But I do own a lot of actual bookmarks.

10) Used Books: Yes or No?

I used to hate used books, especially if they were in bad condition. But now I like them, I don’t mind if books aren’t ‘perfect’.

11) Top Three Favourite Genres?

Young Adult, Contemporary and Dystopian.

12) Borrow or Buy?

I always like to buy my own books. That way I can take time reading them. Also, I can re-read that as much as I want to. But I might borrow a book from a library or a friend if I’m not sure it is for me.

13) Character or Plot?

I couldn’t choose between either, you really need both of them for a good story.

14) Long or Short Books?

It really depends on my mood. Sometimes I like longer books whereas other times I like shorter stories that I can read quickly.

15) Name The First Three Books You Think Of

Faceless by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K Rowling

Holding Up the Universe – Jennifer Niven

16) Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?

I enjoy both. It really does depend on my mood. Sometime I want to cry at a book but sometime all I want is a laugh.

17) Our World or Fictional Worlds?

I like our world, but also like fictional worlds sometimes. If the books and its settings are entertaining I will like them.

18) Audio Books: Yes or No?

I really enjoy audio books. The are really convenient for me to listen to whilst at work. I currently stack shelves in a supermarket so I need something to keep me entertain. Audio books are definitely the solution to this. But I really need to like the narrator’s voice and their playing of the characters.

19) Do You Ever Judge a Book by it’s Cover?

Sadly yes I do.

20) Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?

If this was concerning Harry Potter I would definitely say book to movie. But thanks to the recent A Series of Unfortunate Events TV adaption (which I loved!) I really enjoy book to TV adaption. So I would have to say it depends on the book.

21) A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?

The Lord of the Rings

  1. I thought Lord of the Rings was better as a film too. I read the first book, and I tried to read the second, but halfway through I had to let it go. I’m ashamed to admit, I usually struggle with the classics.
