I found this awesome tag and thought it would be fun to share my thoughts! I don’t remember the name of the blog I found it on, but to find the original source, be sure to check out Nat’s Reading Cloud. Let’s begin!
Read only trilogies or stand alone?
Trilogies. Sometimes stand-alones feel too short and like they have a lot more to say, so I prefer series that give me time to enjoy the world longer. I love getting lost in the book I’m reading and that’s usually how I can pick out my favourites. Books that start off slow are most often ones I’m not inclined to finish.
Read only female or male authors?
I’m going to be completely honest, I don’t actually know how many books authored by males I have…I think maybe 2 or 3? Nothing against male authors, I guess I’v never really noticed before now. I think the biggest thing is that a LOT of YA books happen to be written by women. My other favourite genre is romance and I have to say that I’v never actually read a Nicholas Sparks novel (I’ve seen ALL the movies) even though I hear they’re amazing!
Shop at Indigo or Amazon?
Easy choice for me. Indigo, obviously. I don’t really use amazon and only recently made a purchase from there for school, but I should look into it. Indigo is honestly my favourite place to go because I find it extremely relaxing to just walk around with my Starbucks and browse through the rows of books. Honestly, ideal day.
All books become movies or television shows?
I feel like this is a toss-up because some are better translated on the big screen and some better on the small screen. Take Harry Potter, for example. Probably one of the best book-to-movie franchises EVER (besides Lord of the Rings) and not a single movie let me down. Now let’s examine what is probably one of the biggest franchise failures ever: Twilight. The books were enjoyable (except New Moon, but we’ll just pretend that never happened) and the movies were so hyped up it was inSANE. But, total letdown. The acting felt forced and it was painfully awkward to watch. Also, Jacob’s HAIR. I still can’t even because it did NOT look natural at all…
Final verdict though: movies, definitely movies. One: less commitment on my end. Two: easy to watch over and over again.
Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Five books per week is total bookworm goals. I wish I had that much free time on my hands, but sadly I don’t. My TBR probably has abandonment issues by now.
Be a professional reviewer or author?
Ugh, difficult question. I would love to write a book someday, but I don’t know how to go about organizing the crazy thoughts running around in my head. It’d be like trying to catch butterflies with a broken net. For now, I’m going to settle for reviewing books.
Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
New ones! New ones! New ones! I find it difficult to re-read books because I always remember what happens. Plus, I like being surprised by a good book and thrown off by insane plot twists and cliffhangers.
Be a librarian or book seller?
Librarian because I’m basically a book collector anyways and love organizing books. A bookseller would be difficult for me I think because you need a certain kind of charm to sell things to people and I’m not very persuasive to begin with.
Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
Sigh. What if I’m tied between two for favourite genre? YA and Romance are both equal in my mind so I say both. Ha.
Only read physical books or eBooks?
Easy peasy: physical books. What’s not to love about them? They have beautiful covers which can be displayed on shelves, every book has that new book smell, and it feels more personal to me flipping through the pages rather than swiping or tapping. eBooks are appealing for saving space, though, but they just aren’t practical because you could run out of battery, spill water on your device, and it could stop working at any moment.
