Happy Sunday! Found this book tag over at The Bibliophagist and I thought it’d be fun to do! Of course I knew exactly what I was going to post this Sunday. . . It wasn’t like I didn’t have a post or any idea as to what to write about . . . Anyway, let’s get right to it!
1. How many books is too many books in a book series?
The most books I have read that have been part of a series was seven. Honestly, it depends on the story and how well it’s told. I don’t think there’s a limit unless the story begins to drag or becomes repetitive. The more the merrier!
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
Cliffhangers are torturous to read but fun to write! I try to end each chapter with a small cliffhanger so the reader will want to move onto the next chapter, but I hate reading them in books because then I can’t put the book down and go eat or use the restroom or shower until I’ve finished the book!
And don’t get me started on the end of book cliffhangers and the next in the series isn’t out yet…
3. Hardback or paperback?
Both! It doesn’t really matter to me. If I get to hold the book in my hands, I’m a happy reader 🙂
4. Favorite book?
Seriously? Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh……… No. Wait. I do have an answer!
I love Narnia and this one is my all time favorite because we get to explore the other lands apart from Narnia. And there are talking horses, so what’s not to love?
5. Least favorite book?
Hehe . . . If anyone read my Eragon review, they know the answer to this. Honestly, the book was a waste of my time. The only thing I liked about it was the dragon. Everything else? 👎
If you want a good dragon-human story, just stick with this one👇
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
Yes? If they are written well. Though, I have read books where the girl could honestly do without the two guys. But some of the love triangles I’ve read have been entertaining.
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
I always feel guilty not finishing a book even if it takes me forever. The one book I never finished – because my mom took it away – was Twilight and I was in the 6th grade. Kind of glad she took it away now but then I was kind of upset because I really started getting into the story and it was my first YA.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
Red Queen. Rereading it actually and I am glad I am. I’ll do a review on the series once I’ve finished them.
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Unbroken Fire by Anne Wheeler. I have recommended this book and the first installment to others and I am recommending it to you! It’s truly fantastic with the most unintentionally sexy antagonist I have ever read about. If you love character driven space opera stories, definitely look this one up!
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
The Hobbit – published in 1937. I don’t actually have a first edition copy, though that would be amazing, but the book is definitely old.
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
(Yes, I’m mentioning this one again 🙂 )Newest book was this little beauty down here:) This sequel was published last month and if you haven’t read the first one, you should!
12. Favorite author?
Who can go wrong with C. S. Lewis?
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
I prefer to buy because then there isn’t this deadline hanging over my head for when I have to return the book. And I’ve lent books away to friends to read, and honestly it’s such a bad idea. I let an old friend of mine borrow my special edition of The Hobbit – the one that included the illustrations. I kept asking her over the years if she finished it and she hadn’t and then I asked if I could have it back since it didn’t seem like she was going to finish it and she said no. Then add a few more years later, I ask again and she says she never had it or doesn’t know where it is. And then finally, FINALLY, she finds the book and gives it back…. Never lending books out. EVER.
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
So far I’m not really liking Six of Crows. I haven’t finished it yet, so my opinion might change. I just can’t seem to get pulled into the story, and I’m not really enjoying it. But who knows, I might once I actually finish it.
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Confession time… I used to dog-ear my books… I KNOW! But I stopped and now I use sticky notes, torn corners from a notebook, gum wrappers, honestly anything but actually bookmarks funny enough.
16. A book you can always reread?
This one. Always this one. It was always be a personal favorite. One I will never get tired of.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Adding music to reading is the cherry on top of the sundae. 90% of the time, I always listen to this album. The music isn’t harsh, it’s subtle, quiet, urgent, happy, sad, suspenseful. It’s perfect.
Another good reading album is Jane Eyre 2011. These songs don’t distract from the story, they almost seem to add to it.
18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
Do you have to ask? Multiple, of course!
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Hehe… Uh, I’ll let this gif speak for itself.
Isn’t funny how some of us call ourselves book addicts but don’t often find the time to actually finish a book?
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
I was really drawn to this cover. It’s so simple and I love the illustration. The story was all right, but I think I liked the cover more.
Phew, that was a lot of questions. Again, thank you The Bibliophagist for letting me steal these question:)
