When I’m lacking a few blog posts ideas, I find you can’t go wrong with a nice, simple tag post! And if it’s a bookish themed tag post, even better. Luckily… I found just that on Golden Books Girl and you can find her post here. Ready? Let’s answer some booky questions. If you want to do the tag yourself please feel free and link me to them as I’d love to read your answers!
Audiobook or textbook?
Textbook, all the way. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to an audiobook in my life! Although maybe that would be a god idea for those long winded classics, like Lord of the Rings and Great expectations that I can’t be arsed to read myself.
Paperback or hardback?
Paperback but only for convenience. When you have limited bookshelf space as it is, it’s so much easier to fit the paperbacks in! I also find hardbacks a bit uncomfortable to hold, especially for long periods. Basically, I’m lazy AF.
Fiction or Non-Fiction?
Fiction. I only ever read Non-Fiction when it’s topic I’m deeply passionate about. Which is why I read a lot of Formula 1 drivers autobiographies. But aside from that, it has to be Fiction all the way. Escapism baby. The world is shite.
Harry Potter or Twilight?
Okay… confession time. I have read all the Twilight books and I bloody loved them. I was completely hooked. I haven’t, however, read all the Harry Potter books and quite frankly, I get a little bored of them. I understand that Twilight is kinda problematic and I so wasn’t down for Robert Pattinson as Edward. But I adore the Harry Potter films. So to answer your question… Harry Potter. Probably.
Bookshop or online?
Online, just for convenience and choice but you just can’t beat a bookshop can you? Aimlessly strolling around the aisles, picking up book after book and turning each of them over in your hands, the smell of paper drifting up your nose… Aaaaah!
Standalone or trilogy?
Standalone, definitely. I’m not a huge trilogy fan, unless it’s something exceptional that I cannot put down. For the most part, if I read a book and just liked it”, I won’t read the sequel (if there is one).I like new stories, new worlds and new characters unless I’m hooked, I like to move on to the next.
Sweet and short or heavy and long?
Sweet and short! I’m instantly put off by long books. But I do love a deep, dark, heavy story.
Cosy read or reading in the sun?
Can I make my own one up for this? Because I prefer reading in the bath, with some chocolate. I always get the most reading done in one sitting in the bath! Although in the summer I do like to sit out in my garden on our swing and read. That’s always very relaxing.
Hot chocolate or coffee?
Weird, why isn’t it tea or coffee? But neither. I’d choose tea, every time! Milk and two sugars, please.
