20 Questions Book Tag!

Every now and again, I like to do a tag or a survey because they’re fun! I don’t usually get tagged in them and never really tag anyone back (just not my jam), but I still think they’re fun and love to see other people’s answers. If you’re reading this and you’re interested in doing it too, do it! And post a link in the comments so I can check it out! I saw this tag on Nicola Reads YA, and I thought I’d give it a go. It’s always so interesting to me to see other people’s reading preferences and habits. Without further ado, here is the 20 questions book tag!

20-questions-book-tag
How many books is too many books in a series?

This one is variable for me. In general, I don’t love series. I prefer a really good stand alone. However, a solid trilogy is my go-to if I like it and it must be a series. But then again, I read Kelley Armstrong’s Cainsville series as it came out, and five books just wasn’t enough for me. So, again, variable!

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I think they are stupid and should die.

Hardback or paperback?

I prefer to read a paperback but own a hardback. Unless it’s a favourite or on sale, I usually go for the paperback though because it’s cheaper.

Favourite book?

Depends on the day. I have a Jane Eyre tattoo though, so maybe I’ll go with that.

Least favourite book?

If I really don’t like a book, I’m probably not going to finish it. That being said, I did read a book a couple years ago that I thought was… not good. I was really hyped for it because I love Kelley Armstrong, but I guess her YA just isn’t for me. I really didn’t like The Masked Truth and you can read all about it in my review.

Love triangles, yes or no?

Sometimes they’re pretty tedious. I find this a lot in YA romance. But if they’re well executed, a good love triangle can be awesome for adding tension.

The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I may finish it yet. I’m currently in a reading slump.

A book you’re currently reading?

I’ve been reading a lot of poetry lately. Right now I’m digging A Psalm for Us by Reyna Biddy. I also just started reading Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado and it’s pretty delightful and weird.

Last book you recommended to someone?

This morning I told my friend that he should read Nayyriah Waheed’s poetry collection Salt (as should you all).

Oldest book you’ve read?

The Bible probably lol

The newest book you’ve read?

I recently read I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya and that’s not out til August.

Favourite author?

Go away

Buying books or borrowing books?

I prefer to own books but I don’t like spending money. So.

A book you dislike that everyone seems to like?

I read A Court of Thorns and Roses when it came out and found it pretty cringey, but I don’t think I’m alone in that.

Bookmarks or dogear?

I never never never never never never never dog ear, YOU MONSTER.

A book you can always re-read?

Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. I don’t re-read very much (never), but I read this one three times!

Can you read whilst hearing music?

I can always block out background noise if the book is good enough.

One POV or multiple POV’s?

This is highly dependent on the story. Generally I prefer one POV, but sometimes multiple POVs works better for a story.

Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Again this is highly dependent! If it’s not too long and I have the time and inclination I may read it in one sitting. Usually though it takes a few sittings.

One book you read because of the cover?

I’ve definitely picked up books based on their cover, but I don’t know that I’ve read one strictly because of it. I’m a terribly moody reader so if I’m not feeling it, I’m not reading it. Right now I think my favourite cover is Wild Embers by Nikita Gill!
