20 QUESTIONS BOOK TAG

It has been an eternity since I have done a tag. I have a habit of being tagged and not doing it…..So I don’t get tagged very often. But Danielle from Books, Vertigo & Tea pity tagged me in the comments. I am not sure who the original creator is so please let me know so I can credit them.

The 20 Questions…

1.How many books are too many books in a book series?

Well I like standalones, but if I am choosing series I would go with a trilogy max maybe even a duology.

2.How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I am a sucker for cliffhangers, they keep me hooked and moving through the series. When it comes to a series ending with a bunch of questions, I hate that I want some closure.

3.Hardback or paperback? 

Paperback, always paperback. Hardbacks are heavy and hard to carry around.

4.Favourite book?

No such thing.. But I do love the novella Wenjack by Joseph Boyden.

5.Least favourite book?

American Psycho, I hate that book with every fiber of my being. Unnecessary violence and gruesome scenes, for no reason.

6.Love triangles, yes or no? 

Hell no, why you ask, because they never happen.

7.The most recent book you just couldn’t finish? 

John Dies in the End by David Wong, I read probably like 100 pages of this and I was really enjoying it but it was weird and was just getting too long and I didn’t feel like reading the whole thing.

8.A book you’re currently reading? 

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi, so far I am in love.

9.Last book you recommended to someone?

That would be Aru Shah and the End of Time, loved the cover and so far I am hooked too the characters.

10.Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)

As far as I can tell that would be Romeo and Juliet.

11.Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)

I have no idea how to figure that out, since Goodreads just seems to tell me the year.

12. Favourite author?

I honestly don’t have one, I am a major mood reader so it changes constantly.

13.Buying books or borrowing books? 

I love to buy books and add them to my shelves, but for cost and books I am unsure of I love my library.

14.A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, writing style is the only reason I didn’t like this book. I know it really popular and it should be, I just couldn’t get into the book.

15.Bookmarks or dog-ears? 

Bookmarks, you heathens.

16.A book you can always reread? 

I don’t reread… I have been thinking of listening to Harry Potter on audio because I just loved that series so much.

17.Can you read while hearing music? 

Nope, not at all.

18.One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views) 

I really enjoy multiple POV’s if it’s done well.

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

Multiple days, I don’t read very fast and if I read too long my eyes hurt. Apparently I am a delicate flower who can be inured reading.

20.A book you’ve read because of the cover?

I can’t think of any, that I read just because of the cover. I did however buy a specific copy of Sleeping Giants because the covers are gorgeous. Great book by the way.

It’s even nicer in person.

  1. I was thinking about series the other day, and I think for me that “too much” is when the series basically becomes some kind of crazy franchise. This is usually a middle grade thing, though. Like, seven books for Harry Potter is fine. but when you get to series like Thirty-Nine Clues and Spirit Animals and Babysitters Club where the books go on and on and on, it’s just weird to me.

  2. Thanks for the tag.

    Just as an fyi, if you want the people you tag to be notified of it, link to a specific page on their blog (I usually use the About page). That way that they get a notification in the notification bar.

    I think the oldest book I’ve read is the Canterbury Tales. That was wicked tough reading though…

      1. Canterbury tales also has the pleasure of being in olde English. I had a copy that had olde English on one page n the original on the other. I couldn’t have gotten through it with out the translation.

  3. Lovely answers! I’m a paperback kind of person as well, they are just way more practical and I enjoy them more haha, even if hardcovers are beautiful. They’re too heavy and I carry my books around way too much haha.
    So glad you’re enjoying your current read, I LOVE that cover and I have heard great things about it so far 😀

  4. Oh yeah I love cliffhangers in the middle of a series too!! yeah hell no to love triangles. And that’s a shame about underground railroad. Ooh the covers for sleeping giants are great- glad it’s good inside too! Thanks so much for the tag!!

      1. I have that problem sometimes too! I can be a fast reader, but then I also get distracted by other things that I can’t read while doing. Sometimes I’ll just decide that the library fine is worth being able to finish the book.
