I saw this book tag on a few blogs but finally decided to do it after seeing it just recently on Nen & Jen check out and follow her lovely blog for more awesome content!
Let’s do this!
How many books are too many in a series?
I think it depends on the series – some just need to stop at three if it’s becoming repetitive or the writing/editing is suffering (I’m looking at you Anita Blake series 😅). In YA Fantasy or Sci-Fi, I love a good, solid, well written trilogy but lately I am in love with duologies. It keeps the story tight and exciting. But for historical romance novels with a whole family and each family member has a story to tell, I want each sibling or whoever to have their own book. So it depends!
How do you feel about cliff hangers?
I used to hate them, because I hate waiting a year for the sequel. Like why do you have to torture us?! 😂 But now that I blog about books, I have so many books on my TBR list, it makes the time go fast reading other books, and now I don’t mind them so much. Out of sight, out of mind haha…
Hardback or paperback?
I’m not picky anymore. Just give me books.
I don’t have just one…I just have too many I love equally.
Least favourite book?
I don’t have a book I totally dislike. I mean there are a few, but not at the top of my head.
Love triangle…yes or no?
I love them when the girl picks the guy I want her to end up with. 😂
The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
I don’t know why but I just cannot push on to read Ruin & Rising by. Leigh Bardugo. I barely got through Chapter 1! And I just don’t have a desire to finish. I borrowed it twice already and both times I didn’t finish.
A book you’re currently reading?
The last book you recommended to someone?
Outside of my blogging, I recommended, Frankly in Love, by. David Yoon to one of my besties who is looking for more Asian authors.
Oldest book you’ve read (based on publication date)?
I think it has to be Pride and Prejudice. I’m pretty sure I’ve read older stuff in high school and college, does William Shakespeare count? Or Beowulf (wasn’t that a poem? 🤔)? Haha but the one I enjoyed is Pride and Prejudice.
Newest book you’ve read (based on publication date)?
I read a lot of eARCS that haven’t been published yet, but for published books, I’ll say Vow of Thieves by. Mary Pearson that was published on Aug. 6th. And I’m just looking at my NetGalley list.
I have too many: Mary Pearson, Sarah J. Maas, Madeline Miller, Jenn Bennett, Sarah MacLean, Lisa Kleypas, Karen Marie Moning….way too many haha.
Buying books or borrowing them?
Mostly borrow because of cost and space but I’ve been buying more because I’m trying out book crate subscriptions. And I told my hubby I finally want a nice big book shelf in the house. I didn’t plan on one because my kids would pull off the books. But I do love our library!
A book you dislike that everyone else loves?
Very unpopular opinion but The Grisha series. 😞 I tried but for some reason, it doesn’t interest me.
Bookmarks or dog-ears?
A book you can re-read over and over?
Lisa Kleypas books I’ve re-read a lot when I’m in the mood for historical romance. But I also love the A Court of Thorns and Roses series.
Can you read while listening to music?
I have two children. 🤷🏻♀️ I’ve learn to read while listening to gaming youtube videos, Dan TDM videos, baby shark videos, Peppa Pig, Blippy…🤦🏻♀️💆🏻♀️
Multiple POV or one POV?
No preference, I love both, as long as it’s done well!
Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days on average?
If the book is good, then in one sitting (well…actually that’s what I used to do before kids-so I’d say in one day because my kids do come first). But if a book is slow-paced, it will take me a few days.
Who do you tag?
Anyone who wants to do this tag! No pressure. 😘
