This or That Tag

So, this is me catching up on my tags and typing ever so quietly as my beautiful girl is sound asleep (for the moment!)

Thank you Chocolatenwaffles for tagging me, sorry it took me so long to get around to it. If you haven’t already you should check out Chocolatenwaffles blog, as she writes great reviews about some seriously cool books.

Also, thanks to Ayunda for creating this awesome tag, I had not seen your page before this but I’m now a follower and I think your instagram account is lovely btw 🙂

The Rules:

  • 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! I think I will just tag three as ten seems a bit much.

One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?

Bed. I love nothing more than getting under the covers of my cosy bed and reading a good book.

Two: Male main character or female main character?

I tend to identify more with female characters. I also think that strong female characters such as Katniss Everdeen, Tris Prior and Celaena Sardothien are great role models for girls and are sorely needed in today’s world.

Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Salty. Chips and homemade popcorn are my companion foods to reading. Although sometime it’s nice just to have a warm tea close by.

Four: Trilogies or quartets?

I prefer trilogies as I think most stories can be wrapped up neatly in three books – Harry Potter and GOT being exceptions to that rule. When I read a quartet I often find that the story drags a bit.

Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?

Most of the books I read are third person and I think that this perspective allows for better exploration of the world. The majority of fantasy and historical fiction novels are third person and these are my two favourite genres.

Six: Reading at night or in the morning?

At night. I am busy with bubba in the morning and get a small break at night, so that is when I do most of my reading.

Seven: Libraries or bookstores?

I used to say bookstores but about nine months ago I moved house and my new local library has a terrific collection, with most of the latest releases. Although I am often on a waiting list for the books I want I’ve never had to wait too long and it saves me a lot of money, given I only read most books once. I have managed to read Ink and Bone, Eleanor and Park, A Thousand Nights, Matched and The Selection series all through my local library. I am also on waiting lists for Me Before You, Passenger and The 5th Wave!

Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

Books that make me cry. I love emotional reads that move me and I’m not a huge fan of comedies.

Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?

Black covers are easier to keep clean, but white covers tend to look better on the shelf. S0 I guess black covers :/

Ten: Character driven or plot driven stories?

This is another tough question – I would have to say character driven. At the end of the day if I don’t care about the character I will not be motivated to finish the book. The plot is important, but a poorly written character is a deal breaker – hence why I did not finish Anna and the French Kiss (sorry if you liked that one!)

  1. Yay for catching up with tags. I should do the same, but I can’t find the time 😣
    Oh my, you must give me your trick for eating chips while you’re reading without greasing your books, haha! You are so lucky to have such a cool local library! Loved reading your answers 😊

    1. I just can’t seem to get book humour, unless it’s Fred and George Weasley of course 🙂
      But in every other book I just think stop cracking jokes and get back to the drama! Lol
