Format Snob // You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?
If I had money to spend and space for shelves I would probably be a physical book snob. I can’t do audiobooks and I’ve tried a few times. For now though I do most of my reading with eBooks!
Adaptation Snob // Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?
I used to read most of the books before the film/TV Show came out because years ago YA books or just books I read in general would hardly make it to the screen. That changed with Twilight. But yeah I never expected the books I read would make it on the screen but it’s a whole new ballgame now! So many books are making it to the screen that now I have no time to read them all beforehand – so I don’t! Plus I used to be critical of book adaptations – but now I just realize they are two different beasts and I can love both without stressing about every little change. 😅
Ship Snob // Would you date or marry a non-reader?
I have dated non-readers but I did marry someone who is a reader (or used to be lol). He’s more of a gamer than reader but he comes from a family of readers so his mom is always gifting me books, which is sweet. Now our kids are readers, which is nice!
Genre Snob // You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
I can ditch horror. 🤷🏻♀️ Thrillers and Suspense is a good substitute for me.
Community Snob // Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
I think romance always gets hated on but it’s the genre that got me addicted to reading so I love romance. Sometimes it’s hard for me to enjoy a book without even a little bit of romance in it.
Snobbery Recipient // Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
I can’t say I’ve ever been snubbed but I’ve always felt my love of Young Adult would make people wonder why I bother reading it at my age, 43 going on 44! 😆 But hey…I like to reminisce about my young adult years – it’s when life is starting and I have to escape from adulting okay?! lol…most people leave me alone since the people around me don’t read. 🤷🏻♀️
No obligation to do this of course, but I tag:
Thanks for reading! ~ Yolanda
