Hello everyone! Today I have the Rapid Fire Book Tag.

I found the Rapid Fire Book Tag via Jothany, so make sure to check out their post!

Let’s get onto the tag, shall we?

E-book of Physical book?

I do love my physical books, but I read e-books faster.

Paperback or Hardback?

I see value in both. However, I do prefer paperback books. Especially floppy paperbacks.

Online or In-store book shopping?

Honestly, I’ve been doing more online shopping lately. I get better deals online than I do in-store. And these days, deals speak more often.

Trilogies or series?

Either or. Some stories can be told in a trilogy or in a series.

Heroes or Villains?

Ehhhh. Hero or Villain–doesn’t really matter to me. Though there are a few stories out there were the Villains’ story is mighty interesting.

A Book you want everyone to read.

Beautiful Decay by Sylvia Lewis.

Recommend an Underrated Author

Emilie Knight. I read her Era of Undying (link to review) and I ended up loving the story. So much so that I bought a copy of it!

The Last Book You Finished

As I’m writing this out, the last book I read was Three Irish Brothers, by Sienna Blake.

Weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookmark?

I literally can’t of anything. A pillow?

Used books: Yes or No?

Absolutely! You can usually get them cheaper than the original listing price–which is always a plus (#brokelife).

Top Three favourite Genres.

Fantasy, Paranormal, Mystery/Suspense/Thriller–and yes, the last three one does fall under the same genre. I do love some romance thrown into the mix, but romance doesn’t have to be there for me to enjoy the story.

Borrow or Buy.

I’m a huge fan of libraries, so borrowing. I really only like to buy books if I know that I’ll like it, and that I’ll re-read it. Otherwise…..I’ll just wait for a copy to come into the library.

Character or Plot.

I love a good plot, but IΒ live for some great character development.

Long or Short Books.

Honestly, whether the story is a long or short one–it doesn’t matter to me. As long as I enjoy the story, I’m fine with either.

Name the first three books you think of:

Uprooted by Naomi Novik, Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler, Winter Princess by Skye MacKinnon.

Books that make you laugh or cry

I’d rather laugh while reading a book than cry. I do appreciate books that make me cry, but I just prefer laughing.

Our World or Fictional

I love fictional worlds, but Urban Fantasy books are my JAM, okay?! I love stories that bring magic into an everyday world.

Audiobooks: Yes or No?

No. I only have 2 audiobooks and I can’t even finish them, lol.

Do you ever judge a book by it’s cover?

Yes I do. The cover is what brings me into reading more about the book. To me, covers are a huge part of what I decide to read.

Book to Movie or Book to TV.

I’m not too sure about this one. Both seem ok, but I feel like you would get a better understanding of how the book was told with a tv series.

A Movie or TV Show that you preferred to the Book.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Series or Standalones.

I like both. Series are always good, but sometimes I just want to read a single book and have the whole story told in one go.

See you soon, and Happy Reading!

    I agree with so many of these! While I love hardback books, I tend to read ebooks faster, and I think it’s because they are easier to access. I used to hate audiobooks, but I love them now! Contemporary works best on audiobooks, because fantasy and sci-fi books usually have more names or words that are hard to keep track of, but contemporaries are easier to listen to. And I always judge a book by its cover, even if I don’t mean to! Great answers! πŸ™‚

      Yeeeesss, I’m glad we’re similar in this regard!! And oof, the only two fantasy books i’ve listened to are The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco, and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. But I totally agree that fantasy audiobooks can be harder to keep track of.

      Thank you for the lovely comment!
