The lovely Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews tagged me in this interesting book tag. Thanks, Mandy!
I’ve always loved rapid fires, even though most of the time I totally screw them up. But I like the thrill and urgency of it nonetheless. Anyway, let’s do this!
EBOOKS OR PHYSICAL BOOKS?
I used to be a total no-no to ebooks kind of person, but now I’m fine with both. While ebooks are more convenient travel companions, physical books are well..physical! You can hold it and smell it and they decorate the shelves. Both have their own advantages.
PAPERBACK OR HARDBACK?
Paperbacks. Because, firstly they are much cheaper. Secondly, they are comparatively easier to handle. But if hardbacks were as cheaper, I would definitely choose them since they look better on the shelf.
ONLINE OR IN-STORE BOOK SHOPPING?
I usually prefer online book shopping. I am a lazy person so I don’t go out as much. Besides, why go out when you can have it delivered right at your footsteps? Also, they are cheaper.
TRILOGIES OR SERIES?
I don’t have any preference as such. Take all the books you need to tell your story, just don’t drag the story or make it boring in anyway.
HEROES OR VILLAINS?
In books I like heroes. We usually don’t get to read the story from the villain’s perspective (we should though!), so I don’t get very attached to them. There are always exceptions, however.
A BOOK YOU WANT EVERYONE TO READ?
I’ll Give You The Sun. I absolutely adore the book.
RECOMMEND AN UNDERRATED BOOK.
The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan.
THE LAST BOOK YOU FINISHED?
Queen Of Shadows. I didn’t technically finish it though. I have put the entire series on hold for a while.
WEIRDEST THING YOU USED AS A BOOKMARK?
I have a tendency to use the first thing that comes to my hand as a bookmark. It usually consists of ball pens, but the weirdest I’ve used so far are my headphones.
USED BOOKS, YES OR NO?
Umm no. Even though they’re cheaper, I just cannot.
TOP THREE FAVORITE GENRES?
Fantasy, YA and thriller any day of the week. I love fast paced storylines with twists and turns.
BORROW OR BUY?
I used to be a hard core borrower at one point. In fact, I’ve gone as far as making my friends buy one part each of a particular series, so that we can all borrow and lend and complete the series together. It benefited us all!
Nowadays though, I just try to buy the books that I can buy. (I want my shelf to grow!)
CHARACTERS OR PLOT?
I think both the characters and the plot are essential to make a good book, but if I had to choose, I’ll go with the plot. Actually no, you cannot overlook the characters. I choose both the characters as well as the plot.
LONG OR SHORT BOOK?
If it’s a compelling read then I would prefer it to be a bit longer. But if it’s horrible then I would want it to get over as soon as possible. It depends on the story.
LONG OR SHORT CHAPTERS?
Long chapters. Because short chapters usually end with some cliffhanger-y last sentence and you can’t help but read another chapter and another and another..
Actually, that happens with long chapters too. They should just not have chapters at all!
NAME THE FIRST THREE BOOKS YOU THINK OF.
Cress, Lady Midnight and City Of Heavenly Fire. Wow, two Cassandra Clare books.
BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR CRY?
Laugh! I love humour in books. Emotional books are nice, but they cannot top humour!
OUR WORLD OR FICTIONAL WORLDS?
Fictional worlds all the way! Only the less deadly ones, though.
AUDIOBOOKS: YES OR NO?
No. Sadly I’ve never yet tried an audiobook and I’m not sure if I would. I like hearing my own voice in my mind when I read.
DO YOU EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER?
I do. Covers are sometimes so irresistible. They even make the summary at the back look interesting.
BOOK TO MOVIE OR BOOK TO TV ADAPTATION?
Book to TV adaptation as it would give more time to all the scenes of the book and not simply skip a few. TV series have the potential to be as detailed as the book.
SERIES OR STANDALONE?
Since I haven’t read a lot of standalones, I’ll have to go with series. The standalones that I have read don’t seem to be enough for me. I need sequels! I’m used to sequels.
