ThursTag: The Book Snob Tag

Thank you to Elli @ AceReader for tagging me in The Book Snob Tag. I think I was a book snob when I was younger but not so much now. I have no energy to be one now 😅. Let’s see how I do with these questions:

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:

ThursTag: The 90’s Movie Tag

Is it weird that it’s only now that I’ve noticed the ThursTag phrase? I’ve been blogging for a few years now and have haven’t seen it at all. 😅 Is the wordpress algorithm not working for me? It makes me wonder if I’m never on wordpress working on my blog on Thursdays but that can’t be right. I feel like I’m always on here! Anyway, I loved seeing the ThursTag posts on my feed, and finally got some tags to try out.

I saw this one on Charlotte Somewhere last week who got it from Steph at alittlebutalot – check out both their blogs for more bookish content!

So let’s check out some of these 90’s Movies, shall we?

SHE’S ALL THAT

NAME A BOOK COUPLE THAT IS AN ODD PAIRING BUT THEY STILL FIT PERFECTLY

I think El and Orion are an odd pairing that grew on me. But she is grumpy, sassy, rude, not very likable or sociable but she’s a survivor. And Orion is the one who is worshipped at school, he’s the hero, he’s the nice guy and the two of them together seem so wrong – but by the end of the book, they are right for each other.


10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU

A BOOK/SERIES THAT YOU HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH

UGH….this scene. 💔

I was obsessed with this series, books one and two are awesome and then…this one. I loved the romance, it’s what I was hoping for, but the story went in a direction that I wasn’t expecting. And it was confusing – it didn’t have to be that way. So I love the romance because that turned out the way I wanted…but everything else in this book was so disappointing.


CLUELESS

A CHARACTER THAT IS TOTALLY CLUELESS BUT YOU LOVE THEM ANYWAY

Kate wasn’t clueless per se but she did have her head in the clouds, the theater clouds. Also she was a bit judgmental when it came to the jocks so she was a bit clueless about that. Sort of like how Cher was judgmental about her step-bro lol (yikes I forgot she hooks up with her step-bro in the movie…no blood relation but still)


TITANIC

NAME A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

Bawled my eyes out reading this one. 😢


AMERICAN PIE

A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH

This story is over the top, slapstick humor and just a fun time!


CAN’T HARDLY WAIT

A BOOK WITH A CRAZY PARTY

This is a party where anything and everything happened!


CRUEL INTENTIONS

NAME A CHARACTER YOU CAN NEVER FULLY TRUST

Jacks! He’s such a gorgeous bad boy – I can never trust him. lol


DRIVE ME CRAZY

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE “BOY NEXT DOOR” OR “GIRL NEXT DOOR” COUPLE

This one was super cute and fun!


SCREAM

A BOOK WITH A MEMORABLE VILLAIN

There are some pretty good villains in this story!


THE CRAFT

NAME A BOOK WITH WITCHES

This book is full of witches!


And there you have it! All these movies bring back so many memories for me – I enjoyed them all back in the day and have seen them multiple times. This was definitely a fun tag post to do! ~ Yolanda
