I haven’t done a book tag in a while so I’m super excited to be doing this one! I’m not sure who created this tag, but I stole it from socially awkward bookworm. I didn’t really steal it, she said anyone could do it, and it looked really fun, so here I am! So here we go:
How many books is too many books in a book series?
It honestly depends on the size of the books and how the story is written. Like a bunch of short books with a good story, I feel like it could be condensed instead of making us readers go on and on. I understand why authors would do this though, they need to make money. The longest series I’ve ever read was 6-7 books long.
How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I have a love-hate relationship with cliffhangers. I love cliffhangers when they are leaving me to anticipate for a sequel this is coming. I hate cliffhangers when they just well, for a lack of a better phrase, leave me hangin’ with no sequel or explanation. I love tiny cliffhangers that leave you just enough for you to come up with an ending by yourself.
Hardback or paperback?
Ooooohhh, this is hard. I like both really. Paperbacks maybe a little more than hardback. I always end up removing the book cover on hardbacks. I’ll never turn down a book though!
This question isn’t really fair. Do you know how many books there are? Turtles All the Way Down, The Invisible Girls, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Wonder. These are definitely not my only favorites, but there you go.
Least favorite book?
If you mean a favorite but not exactly my top favorite, I have several. If I don’t like a book I’m reading I usually give up on it. So I don’t really have an answer.
Love triangles, yes or no?
This is tricky. Love triangles are okay if it is essential to the story, but if the love triangle is just there to add more drama I can do without it.
The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
Some Assembly Required by Michael Strelow. I started it and kept getting confused. The narrator of the story kept going back and forth between different times without notice so I gave up on trying to figure it out.
A book you’re currently reading?
This I Know by Eldonna Edwards. It’s about a little girl in a religious family who has “the Knowing” and can talk to her dead twin brother. I’m not that far into it so that’s all I have to offer as far as my own description of the book.
Last book you recommended to someone?
I told my brother he needed to read Ready Player One after we saw the movie a couple weeks ago because they did not do the book justice. He said he was already planning on reading it. Does that still count?
Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
I’m guessing this question is asking about books outside of the stories we had to read in school, like Shakespeare and others like that. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton would have to be the oldest book I’ve ever read (I think). It was published in 1967.
Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
Relative Strangers by Paula Garner. I read this book not long ago and it was just published a week or so ago. It was a good story. It’s about a girl who finds out she was in foster care for the first year or so of her life and finds the family that took care of her.
Another hard question… Cassandra Claire, Lauren Kate, John Green, Becca Fitzpatrick are a few of my favorites. I don’t have just one favorite author.
Buying books or borrowing books?
I’m okay with either, I guess. The only thing about borrowing books though is I feel rushed to read the book so I can return it to the person. If I had a way to get to the library that would be a different story.
A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
Paramnesia by Brian Wilkinson. I wasn’t able to finish this book. I felt like I had to force myself to read it and I can’t stand having to do that so I gave up on it.
Bookmarks or dog-ears?
I don’t care what you use as a bookmark, but don’t you dare dog-ear my books.
A book you can always reread?
I have a few books that I have read more than once: The Fault in our Stars, Just Another Girl, Love Letters to the Dead, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. All of these books are so good and I love them all for different reasons.
Can you read while hearing music?
I can read while music is playing as long as it’s not blaring. I may read a tad bit slower though. I used to not be able to read with music playing, but at my house when we’re all kind of doing our own thing, my mom will play music while I’m reading and it’s fine.
One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
I’m okay with multiple POV’s as long as the story warrants it. Like if I’ll get more of the story from more than one point of view, then more than one POV is fine. If the story is just as good with one POV that fine too.
Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Depends on what mood I’m in and the book. I have to be in the mood to read all day and the book has to be interesting. Like when I read Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I Can I read almost the whole thing in a few hours because I’m a huge Lauren Graham fan.
A book you’ve read because of the cover?
Please Don’t Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn. The cover is simple and beautiful, which made me want to read it. Well, that along with the title.
I’m not going to tag any one person, so if you want to do this tag, go for it! Just remember to link back to me so I can read your answers!
