Time for another book tag! This one I found over at I Won’t Say I’m Not In Love With Reading.

Paperback or Hardback?

If I’m going to keep the book for my personal collection, then I want the hard back, otherwise it’s just too heavy to carry around. Paperbacks are better for every day use.

Online or In-Store Shopping?

In store. You can browse and even find books that look good and buy/borrow them, whereas online you kind of have to know what you’re looking for to get it.

Trilogies or series?

I don’t have a strong opinion on this one. Series can drag on forever and trilogies are being overdone at the moment. If done well, I can go for either.

Heroes or villains?

Heroes. Because I’m always rooting for the good guy.

A book you want everyone to read?

I’m going to go with Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Just because it’s so haunting and I’m still thinking on it years later. And it makes commentary of humans and who deserves to be recognized.

Recommend an underrated author?

I’m not quite sure if I know of any underrated authors?

The last book you finished?

The Call of the Wild and The Scent Keeper.

Weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookmark?

A coupon, I suppose, or a (clean) tissue. It didn’t last very long because it wasn’t thick enough for me to keep using. Too flimsy.

Used books?

Yes, but they have to be almost new/very good condition. I don’t like buying beat up, yellowed, and gross books. And it has be a good price.

Top 3 favorite genres?

If you’re going by my current interests then nonfiction, suspense, and literary.

Borrow or buy?

Buy, though if I don’t like it, borrowing is much better.

Character or plot?


Long or short books?

These days, short books because I’ve been too busy to invest in a long story. I like long books if it’s done well.

Name first 3 books you think of.

Harry Potter, Oliver Twist, Hunger Games.

Books that make you laugh or cry?

Cry, because I never got funny books.

Our world or fictional?

Our world, because I like realistic fiction.

Audiobooks: Yes or no?

No, but I like the idea of them. Maybe one day I’ll give them a chance.

Do you ever judge a book by its cover?

Yes, even when you’re not supposed to. Covers is what draws you in and makes you want to pick it up.

Book to movie or book to tv?

Book to tv has been popular lately and it’s generally been a good idea. But movies are one time investment so I’ll choose that.

A movie or tv show that you prefer over the book?

The Book Thief, because I didn’t like Death as a narrator in the book.

Series or stand alone?

I prefer a stand alone. As I said previously, I don’t have the energy/time to invest in a series right now.

So, here are my answers. Do you agree with mine or do you have something completely different? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I’m with you on the hardcover vs. paperback debate. I love having bookshelves full of hardcovers. But it’s just not practical to carry a hardcover copy of Stephen King’s It around. Actually, that one’s so big, even the paperback is a little impractical.
