I’m back again with yet another book tag! I hope your weeks is going well everyone.
How many books are too much in a series?
That’s hard to answer. It depends on what happens in the series. Maybe like, more than 10 books is too much.
How do you feel about cliff-hangers?
I don’t mind cliff-hangers if I don’t have to wait more than a day to read the next book. But if it’s a whole year, (Ahem, Keeper of the Lost Cities) than I hate cliff-hangers.
Hardcover or paperback?
Honestly, I like paperbacks more than hardcovers. Paperbacks don’t take up as much room on a shelf and they’re easier to hold.
- Kiki Strike, Inside the Shadow City by Kristen Miller
- Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
- In 27 Days by Alison Gervais
- Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean
- Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
- Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Least favorite book?
The Stone Braide Chronicles by Bonnie S. Calhoun. I loved the first book and then… the series went downhill. I think Bonnie S. Calhoun ran out of ideas after the first book, so the second and third book was mostly them walking around and talking.
Love triangles, yes or no?
I don’t mind love triangles, but only if they’re written well. I don’t like it when the girl gets together with the guy I didn’t like and my ship smashes to pieces.
The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallace. I dnf-ed this book about 3 chapters in. I was in a rush, so I didn’t have time to read reviews on this book and see if it was worthwhile. I started listening to it (it was an audiobook) and was shocked by the content. There was so much swearing, nothing moral of any sorts, and the parents were nonexistent. I turned it off after 10 minutes.
A book you’re currently reading?
I’m reading a lot of books right now.
- The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan
- A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull
- Julius Caesar by Shakespeare
Last book you recommended to someone?
My own book, Chase. I had just put it on Goodreads and recommended it to almost everyone.
Oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. which was published in 1937. But the oldest copy of a book on my shelf is The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien which is 50+ years old.
Newest book you’ve read? (publication date)
Finale by Stephanie Garber. It was published May 7, 2019.
Why do we even bother to put it as a singular author when every book nerd turns it plural.
- Nadine Brandes
- Lorie Langdon
- Marissa Meyer
- Andrew Klavan
- Shannon Messenger
- J.R.R. Tolkien
- And the list goes on and on.
Buying books or borrowing?
If there is book from an author that I’ve read before, I’ll usually see if I can borrow it first. But if I can’t find the book anywhere and I love the author, I’ll buy the book.
A book you disliked that everyone else loved?
That would have to be, One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus. I just really disliked it. The story basically became more of a romance then the actual mystery of who murdered Simon.
Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Don’t come after me, but I do dog-ear my pages. Bookmarks always fall out, and I just find it more convenient. It’s not like I fold half the page or crinkle the page, I just fold a small corner over.
A book you can always reread?
Ummm… any of my favorite books?
Can you read while listening to music?
I can read and listen to music at the same time. When reading, I tend listen to lofi hip-hop or the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.
One POV or multiple?
It depends on the characters. If I love multiple characters in the story, then I don’t mind it. But if one of the POVs include a disliked character, then I wish for one POV.
Do you read a book in one sitting or over several days?
Depends on the day and how excited I am to read the book. There are some times when I read a whole book in one sitting, but normally it takes me two days to read a book.
