Hello friends! I was not tagged in this, but I saw it over on Peaks and Pages, and thought I would do it anyway. I am really loving these book tags! Let’s jump right in:
1. How many books is too many books in a series?
Is that even a thing? I am a big fan of series, and I typically believe the more the merrier. However, I don’t want the story to drag on and either get boring or repetitive. I haven’t seen that happen yet, though.
2. How do you feel about
I. HATE. THEM. Yes, they’re a good way to ensure reading the next book, but if I have to wait a year or more, then it’s just torture. I read Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas in January, and it was the worst cliffhanger I have ever read. It destroyed me and I have to wait until October for the next book.
3. Hardback or paperback?
Either, honestly. Typically, I get whatever is cheapest or available. I do like series to match, though, if possible. However, some of my favorites don’t, and I’ve never replaced — my first two Harry Potter books are paperback, while the rest are hardback, and my first three The Mortal Instruments books are paperback, while the rest are hardback.
4. Favorite book?
I don’t know how to answer this; there are too many! If we don’t count Harry Potter, which I feel like we can’t because nothing will ever top it, then my favorite series is The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. My favorite stand-alone is Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli.
5. Least favorite book?
I don’t really have a least favorite book. If I don’t like it, I usually don’t finish it and then forget about it.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
It depends on the story. Sometimes it adds to the story, but a lot of times it feels forced and overdone.
7. The most recent book
you just couldn’t finish?
It’s been about a year, but I couldn’t finish Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. I started this late one night and it made me had terrible nightmares, so I set it aside and didn’t finish it.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
I multi-read, so I am currently reading Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth (find here), Snow Like Ash by Sara Raasch (find here), and an ARC of Areion by Lela Grayce (preorder here).
9. Last book you recommended
I don’t know… probably A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas because I’m obsessed.
10. Oldest book you’ve read (publication date)?
Confession time, I don’t read many old books. This is something I want to change! If we count The Odyssey, then that’s probably the oldest, but I didn’t read the entire thing.
11. Newest book you’ve read (publication date)?
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi! It was released March 6 and I finished it that week. I did just get The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth (released April 10), which I will be reading as soon as I finish Carve the Mark.
12. Favorite author?
Again, too many answers. The obvious answer being J.K. Rowling or Cassandra Clare. I also love Becky Abertalli, and am currently obsessed with Sarah J. Maas.
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
I buy most of my books, or get free ones, but I wish I could borrow more!
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
Umm I can’t think of anything. I can think of some I love that others dislike, though!
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Of those two options, bookmarks. I don’t use them though… I just remember my page.
16. A book you can always reread?
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli! Best feel-good book ever.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
If it’s quiet, or if it’s someone else’s music. I read faster when it’s quiet, though.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
Either. Most of what I’ve been reading lately is multiple POVs and I really like it.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
It depends on the book. Usually it’s at least a couple days, but occasionally I’ll read a whole book in one night.
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
Honestly, most of them. I’m “that” person: I judge books by their covers all the time. Unless it’s a recommended book, that’s how I pick what to read.
