I wasn’t really tagged by anyone to do this tag but I’m gonna do it anyway because I’m spontaneous and unpredictable like that.
Also, I’m bored. And I don’t really feel like making some actual posts. I also like answering questions- except in exams, pfft. Yeah, I’m bad when it comes to that.
I actually saw Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek do this and thought it’d be a fun post to do. So, here we are!
Q1. How many books are too many books in a series?
Listen, I love series. I love being able to stay in a world for longer than one or two books so usually, I’m fine with long series as long as they’re less than 6 books. So, more than 5 books is too much, I reckon.
Q2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
See, there are “dread” cliffhangers and then there are “exciting” cliffhangers. Dread cliffhangers just make you feel sort of… drab about the entire book whereas exciting cliffhangers make you want to get on to the next book asap. Example of “exciting” cliffhangers include Angelfall, Word After, An Ember In The Ashes, A Torch Against The Night, The Winner’s Crime, The Cruel Prince etc. “Dread” cliffhangers include Nevermore, Enshadowed, City Of Bones etc.
Who would’ve thought that I’d have such detailed thoughts on cliffhangers?
Q3. Hardback or Paperback?
I can mostly afford paperbacks but I’d go for hardback anytime. I like how they look, I like to hold them, I like how solid they are, they look amazing on my shelf and bookstagram, man. Also, they don’t get spine creases unlike paperbacks so that’s a win-win.
Q4. Favorite Book?
Look, I can’t answer this question. I don’t know. There are too many good books out there. Well, the book I’m mostly associated with (and which is definitely one of my favorite books) is An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. The book is my heart and my soul.
Q5. Least Favorite Book?
I don’t really like “favorite” questions because I need a whole list of statistics in order to answer them but, I think, one of my least favorite books is Torment by Lauren Kate. It’s the sequel to Fallen. Unlike a lot of people, I thought Fallen was just fine but, oh god, do I know that the sequel was unbearable.
Q6. Love triangles, yes or no?
Ha. Yeah, that’s a big no for me. People say that if love triangles are “done right” then they’re pretty good and I know that makes sense but for me, it’s between “bearable” and “oh god just pick one person and move on please.” The only reasonable LT that I can absolutely confirm was done right is in The Raven Boys and that’s because 1). That didn’t become the highlight of the plot and 2). There was no cheating involved. Really, tho, the only love triangles I’m concerned with are pizzas and doritos (at what point will this joke become old, lemme know).
Q7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
Okay, I genuinely don’t remember this. Maybe Bachelor Unforgiving by Brenda Jackson? Or Endless Night by Kresley Cole, sequel to Poison Princess. Although it’s been quite some time with both of the books.
Q8. A book you’re currently reading?
I’m currently reading Freeks by Amanda Hocking and soon after this, I’ll be reading Emergency Contact by Mary K Choi.
Q9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Definitely The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski! I recommended it to Audrey and she ended up loving it and it absolutely destroyed her heart so my job there is done, I guess.
Q10. Oldest book you’ve read (Publication Date)?
I think Dracula by Bram Stoker- which, by the way, you should definitely read if you haven’t yet. I read it a couple of years ago but I remember how spooked I was. I think I actually had to take a break before picking it up again? I don’t remember but it was great.
Q11. Newest book you’ve read (Publication Date)?
Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke which was released in January. Although, as soon as I finish Emergency Contact, that’d be my newest book (Released: 27th March).
Q12. Favorite author?
I don’t freaking know, man. There are too many. Sabaa Tahir, Derek Landy, Richelle Mead, Rick Riordan….the list is endless.
Q13. Buying books or borrowing books?
No brainer- buying books. I’m a book collector, I love buying books. I do have a membership of my local library but it’s embarrassingly low on YA Lit unless it is requested (which takes time and patience; ergo, me=not amused).
Q14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Now, I don’t hate this book or even dislike it but it a major “meh” for me so >_>.
Q15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
I’m respectful of people who have their own methods of dealing with books but if you ever dog-ear my book, I’d actually steal your (probably nonexistent) dog and keep it with me forever. There.
Q16. A book you can always re-read?
I don’t usually re-read books a lot but I’d probably go for Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda or Geekerella. Speaking of re-reading, I also need to marathon Harry Potter again.
Q17. Can you read while hearing music?
Um, not actual full blown songs. I haven’t experimented with instrumental music but that’s something I want to do now. Someone mentioned listening to the actual book playlist released by the author and that sounds like such a brilliant idea that I want to try that out too!
Q18. One POV or Multiple POVs?
If you asked me this question a couple of years ago, I would be vehemently against multiple/3rd person’s POV but that was the girl who read His Dark Materials with little patience. I’ve actually grown to love separate and/or 3rd POV now because of some incredible books. But I think I’d still go with one POV because that makes me feel adjusted to the story pretty quickly and get to know the protagonist pretty well.
Q19. Do you read a book in one sitting or multiple days?
Depends on the book. Mostly, 2 days tops. Sometimes, in one sitting if the book is really good and I don’t have much to do IRL otherwise.
Q20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- that cover is so irresistible and mysterious, how could you not want to read the books? Also, This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab and Angelfall by Susan Ee.
