It seems to be a trend now where I am just going around completing tags that I’m not technically nominated for, but they are all so good I just want to put my hands in all the cookie jars haha.
I saw the lovely My Bookish Dream complete this tag and thought I might give it a go too.
- Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
- Thank the blogger who tagged you!
- Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
- Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!
Let’s jump in on this thing.
Reading on the couch or in bed?
I enjoy reading on both because they are both super comfy but if I had to choose, I would have to say propped up in bed with all my pillows and blankets arranged in a comfy reading cocoon.
Male main character or female main character?
This depends on the type of book I’m reading. If I’m looking at a super gooey or steamy romance novel to pull my out of a slump, I much prefer a male lead because I find the way in which these characters navigate that terrain very interesting. If I’m reading a fantasy or YA contemporary, I enjoy a strong female lead with an equally interesting male counterpart.
Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
I’m not really a reading snacker but I guess I would have to go with sweet because I’m usually munching down on a piece of fruit or drinking a sweet tea or cold drink.
Trilogies or quartets?
I guess it depends on the story. I would always choose a duology over these buuuuuuut I do love a well crafted trilogy where the characters and the plot are given a proper send off.
First person point of view or third person point of view?
I find first person narratives far more interesting and a lot easier to follow.
Reading at night or in the morning?
I prefer to read in the morning on the train to work. By the time the day is over I’m wiped from a busy day and just want to pull up Netflix, cook some dinner and crawl into bed. I’ve also found that if I try to read at night, that my mind gets too stimulated and my one more chapter turns into a three hour binge and my eyeballs want to fall out in the morning.
Libraries or bookstores?
I would live in a second hand bookstore if I could – the musty smell and the tall stacks of books that are stacked like a Jenga puzzle are where my soul resides.
Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
Definitely laugh. I’m not much of a crier in life so really struggle to get to that point when I’m reading or watching movies.
Black book covers or white book covers?
Confession: I can be a little rough with my books. I’ve always got at least one in the bottom of my bag so I would definitely have to go with black book covers.
Character-driven or plot-driven stories?
That is a tough one. Can I cheat and say a plot driven book with great characters? Haha. I think I would have to go with plot-driven though because a character is nothing without a great environment to thrive in.
So because I’ve been doing quite a few of these tags lately and I have a few more coming up, I’m going to leave this open to anyone because I’m pretty sure I’ve exhausted my list and I know everyone is super busy reading and living life.
If you do decide to do this, leave me a link so I can check out your answers.
