It’s time for The Rapid Fire Book Tag!
I stumbled across this book tag by Girlreading on YouTube–it looked fun and I wanted to give it a try! As the title of the tag suggests, the tag consists of quick questions. I figured I’d also stick to brief answers for this one, but feel free to comment if you want me to give further details! Continue reading to view the original tag video!
E-Book or Physical Book?
I’ve been preferring e-books lately due to the lack of space I have on my shelves lately. Even though I do love books, I find that my electronics with reading apps are a bit closer.
Paperback or Hardback?
Hardcovers for sure! They’re higher quality and last a lot longer.
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
This depends on the situation. If I know what I want to get, online is convenient. But if I want to browse and discover new titles, it’s fun to look at books in-person.
Trilogies or Series?
I prefer stand alone novels–trilogies and series can be harder for me to get into.
Heroes or Villains?
Heroes! I love reading about heroes and seeing them grow as characters.
A book you want everyone to read?
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
Recommend an Underrated Book?
The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash.
The last book you finished?
I read several books for class and due to the fast pace of grad school, it’s a bit of a blur at this point. But I loved the picture book, Sakura’s Cherry Blossoms by Robert Wetson and Misa Saburi. I took a children’s literature course this semester and loved learning about literature from other countries.
The Last Book You Bought?
I purchased Pillar’s of the Earth by Ken Follett for my mother.
Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I tend to use conventional bookmarks or receipts from stores.
Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes, though it depends on the condition of the book!
Top Three Favourite Genres? –
Modern Fairy tale Retellings
Paranormal and Suspense
Borrow or Buy?
Characters or Plot?
I feel like both are important–a great plot with some character development!
Long or Short Books?
Long or Short Chapters?
Short chapters. I tend to often get in reading slumps and short chapters helps me get back into reading again.
Name The First Three Books You Think Of…
Scythe by Neil Schusterman, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and the Sailor Moon manga.
Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
The Hunger Games series.
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
I like fictional worlds that are contemporary, but with a bit of magic. Thsi may be why I love urban fantasy.
Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Nope! At least for now. I read at a fast pace when I’m really into a novel and find that audio books are a bit slow to get through.
Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover? –
Yup! I’m not a fan of books with real-life people on them, for example. I like to imagine the appearances of characters in the books.
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Ooof. That’s a tricky one. A TV adaptation would be fun!
A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
I haven’t seen an adaptation I really enjoy at this point, with the exception of Sailor Moon’s 90’s anime.
Series or Standalone’s?
Standalone’s are great, though I prefer series as I can get to know the characters a lot more!
