20 Questions Book Tag

Happy weekend everybody! This one I saw over at Kristin Kraves Books. It’s a long one so strap in!

 

 


How many books is too many in a series?

With the exception of Harry Potter or books of that quality, I’d say anything more than five. After that, it can feel a bit forced like the author is just rolling them out for the sake of a paycheck.

 

 

 

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

If done well, send them my way. Otherwise, no thanks…I don’t need that kinda negativity in my life. Lol

 

 

 

Hardback or paperback?

Practically, whichever one gets me the story. Aesthetic wise I’d prefer hardbacks. They’re always so pweeetty.

 

 

 

Favorite book?

Yeesh! What kind of…if I haaaad to choose I’d say Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but honestly it varies by genre and mood.

 

 

 

Least favorite book?

Zoo by James Patterson. I still can’t get over how awful that was.

 

 

 

Love triangles. Yes or No?

I mean the same applies here…if it’s done well then I’d take it otherwise…

 

 

 

The most recent book you couldn’t finish?

I haven’t dnf’d anything since last year: Scrapbooking Mystery #9.

 

 

 

A book you’re currently reading?

I’m too ashamed to name any because I started them all soooooo long ago.

 

 

 

The last book you recommended to someone?

Easy. Simon vs. Everyone needs to Love, Simon. (When will it get here?!)

 

 

 

The oldest book you’ve read (publication date)?

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Apparently, this was originally published in 1485?! According to Goodreads anyway.

 

 

 

The newest book you’ve read (publication date)?

Spectacle Vol. 1 which doesn’t come out until May 22nd.

 

 

 

Favorite author?

This one is similar to favorite book and completely depends on mood and genre, but Adam Silvera is slowly becoming an all-around favorite.

 

 

 

Buying or borrowing?

As much as I’d love to buy every book that I want to read, realistically I’m not at that place in my life…so borrowing. I’m broke yo.

 

 

 

A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?

Going strictly by Goodreads, I’d have to say The Elite.

 

 

 

Bookmark or dog ears?

Bookmarks all the way but sometimes you really don’t have a choice.

 

 

 

A book you can always reread?

Any Harry Potter book, but I’m not a big rereader. I always say that I want to reread something and never get to it.

 

 

 

Can you read while hearing music?

Only if it’s instrumentals or not anything that I’d want to sing along to.

 

 

 

One POV or multiple?

It doesn’t really bother me either way.

 

 

 

One sitting or multiple days?

I’d have to say multiple days because I hardly ever have the chance to sit uninterrupted long enough to finish a book in one go.

 

 

 

A book you’ve read because of the cover?

I’m a superficial buyer: if it looks good, chances are I’m going to pick it up. If the summary is also good? Well…the answer is obvious. So…most of my reads are due to the cover

End of Year Tag

aka Where did 2017 go????? Honestly???


 

I’ve seen this one floating around and thought, why the hell not? So here goes. A thing:

 

1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Ahahaahah!

Wait, this is an actual question? There are so many because that’s my modus operandi honestly. Top priority would be:

I started the Nicholas Flamel in February and kept getting distracted along the way, but I am determined to finish this series. Same for the Stephanie Perkins as well.

 

 

2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

Um..no. First of all we only have two seasons in my part of the world: rainy and dry. Aside from that, I’m more focused on Christmassy books.

 

 

3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

Nah, I’m looking forward to 2018 releases though!

 

 

 

4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Aside from my TBR for this month (which is ambitious enough considering how little time I usually have for myself in December) I wish I could fit in

 

 

 

5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

If I ever finish it:

35882029

 

 

 

 

6. Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

I am the queen of making plans (and not following through) so the answer is unreservedly YES. My reading goals will be coming soon, so stay tuned for that.

 


 

I’m not going to pressure anyone to do this tag so, if you want to then feel free.
