So this isn’t cheating, because Sara over at The Bibliophagist tagged everyone who hasn’t done this tag yet, but no one actually tagged me. I don’t care, I’m still doing it! Join me in the revolution!
Here’s the 20 Question Book Tag!
1. How many books are too many in a series?
It really depends on the books for me. I usually say 4 is a good maximum number – unless you’re Sarah J Maas or Cassandra Clare. Then you can kinda do anything!
2. How do you feel about cliffhanger endings?
This is my face when I get to the end of a book and there’s a cliffhanger. I love to hate them.
3. Hardback or paperback?
Hardback all the way! 99% of the books I have (excluding ARCs) are hardcover books – they’re a guilty pleasure.
4. Favorite book?
That’s like asking someone who their favorite child is. The expected answer is, I don’t have one. But obviously it’s Twilight.
Just joking – I have 5 favorite books for each subgenre, there’s no way I can make a decision on that. Lets just say Four Dead Queens, A Curse so Dark and Lonely, Throne of Glass, Diamond City, Furyborn, and An Ember in the Ashes are my all time favorites as of right now.
5. Least Favorite book?
This is tricky to answer because I can dislike a book now and love it later. This one I couldn’t love it even if you paid me, my all time worst is The Grapes of Wrath. I had to read this my junior year of high school and every other scene is a description of the desert. John Steinbeck likes to torture his readers and I thoroughly hated this book and still hate it to this day.
6. Love triangles: yes or no?
Only if they’re done really well and actually have an importance to the plot/character development. Otherwise – nah.
7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
Got 100 pages in and still couldn’t get into it. Put it down and still haven’t picked it back up.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
I love this book so far. It just came out on September 3rd if anyone hasn’t discovered this book yet!
9. Last book you recommended?
Uhhhh I don’t even remember the book I read last week at this point – I’m pretty sure it was There Will Come A Darkness or The Grace Year.
10. Oldest book you’ve read?
Not counting biblical texts, Beowulf.
11. Newest book you’ve read?
Diamond City because it doesn’t even come out until January/February of 2020.
12. Favorite author?
Uhhhh again – favorite child question! There are so many authors I love and will love forever. I’ll put down Sarah J Maas, Cassandra Clare, Claire Legrand, Brigid Kemmerer, and Sabaa Tahir. And like 50 other amazing authors AHH.
13. Buying books or borrowing?
Buying because I’m selfish and want to keep them all.
14. A book that you disliked that everyone seems to love?
Hunger Games lol. Also never got into Illuminae…
15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
Bookmarks you monsters. Always bookmarks.
16. A book that you always reread?
This whole prequel series I could read over and over again.
17. Can you read while listening to music?
No. I’m so easily distracted I would hear a song I love and start singing. Then all of a sudden its three hours later and I’ve sung the entire Waitress: The Musical and Hamilton soundtrack and my book is forgotten. So short answer: no.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
Multiple because you know some awesome stuff is about to go down and multiple people need to tell the story so I can become attached to all of them and cry even harder! Also most fantasy novels now have multiple POVs and I’m all for it.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Usually over multiple days because I work, but occasionally one sitting if I have a few hours to kill and nothing distracting me.
20. Who do you tag?
Everyone because I love to include people. But Alexa from Writing the Universe better do this tag or I will be sad.
