Tag Time! Brianna tagged me to do this a while ago. I’ve been meaning to do this but just couldn’t find the time! I miss doing tags and really enjoyed doing this one. The questions were really creative!
1. How many books are too many in a series?
I’ve read series with 10 books and wanted more. I’ve also read duets which I felt would’ve been better off as a single book. If there’s a story to tell, I am fine with as many books needed to wrap it up nicely.
As long as I don’t feel that the writer is just churning out new books in a series just for commercial reasons, and doesn’t take ages between each book *cough* GRRM *cough*, I don’t mind.
2. How do you feel about cliffhanger endings?
I think if a book can wrap up its own solitary arc, and a cliffhanger is there just to give a glimpse of what’s waiting for us in the next book, I’m fine with it. But if it leaves you with none of your initial questions for the book answered, then it’s a big no.
3. Hardback or paperback?
Both! I have a weakness for hardbacks. But paperbacks are easy to carry when I’m traveling. And I always feel like something’s missing if I don’t carry a book with me when I’m holidaying!
4. Favorite book?
How do you even answer that? But if I had to really choose one, I’d just choose the Harry Potter series because they’re what started it all for me!
5. Least Favorite book?
Veronica Roth’s Allegient, maybe?
6. Love triangles : yes or no?
No. Unless they’re written really compellingly. And that rarely happens.
7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
Well, I did lose my interest through one-third of Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. Although I plan to get back to it, I’m still a little disappointed because I was looking forward to it and wasn’t as taken by it as I thought I’d be.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
Valencia and Valentine.
9. Last book you recommended?
All the pretty monsters.
10. Oldest book you’ve read?
The only book I can think of is The Quran.
11. Newest book you’ve read?
Fix Her Up.
12. Favorite author?
There are many. But I’ve been craving Jane Austen recently. So I’ll say her name!
13. Buying books or borrowing?
I prefer buying. Borrowing can be stressful. And yet the easy option.
14. A book that you disliked that everyone seems to love?
Any book by John Green or Colleen Hoover.
15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
The blasphemy! Bookmarks. Although I’m pretty good at remembering the page I’m in and don’t need either of these.
16. A book that you always reread?
Harry Potter. But I have a knack for rereading any book that I like.
17. Can you read while listening to music?
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
One POV. Because if I happen to dislike the character with another POV, I tend to not pay as much attention to the story when they’re narrating. And sometimes, I like to be kept guessing about the intentions of the other characters. It keeps things interesting.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
One sitting. In fact, I rarely start a new book if I don’t have the time at hand to finish it soon.
20. Who do you tag?
Sara, Alyssa, Mogsy, and anyone who’s interested to do it!
