WELL HELLO PALS.
It is Tuesday. I’m doing a tag. I LOVE A TAG. Do you love a tag? Do you like reading tags? I love reading other people’s answers to tags… they’re such fun!
Today’s tag is the 20 questions tag. I found this as I was perusing the Queen of all Blogging: PaperFury’s blog. I’ve seen other people do it too, but I found it on Cait’s blog. If you’d like to see that post, check it out here. Feel free to join in!
HOW MANY BOOKS ARE TOO MANY FOR A SERIES?
Am I in charge? I love a 3.
Definitely no more than 5 is MY ideal though. Any more than that and I am OUT. (This explains why I’ve not read any Cassie Clare guys!)
I think 3 is the perfect amount to get invested and then get satisfaction from. I do love a duology too, but I ALWAYS WANT MORE CAUSE I LOVE ALL THE BOOKS. But no more than 3/4 really.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?
OH GOLLY GOSH. If I know there’s going to be another book, then I can live with that… but if it’s a stand alone… NO.
Cliff hangers are just not good for my little heart (see: they make me feel all of the feels which I love but then I yearn for more books INSTANTLY)
HARDCOVER OR PAPERBACK?
Paperback EVERY SINGLE DAY. But I do love the occasional hard back. I don’t own many, but the ones I do own are special to me.
Lol, who do you think you’re talking to? JUST ONE? LOLOLOLOL. I can give you a few?
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK?
I just don’t have one? I don’t see the point in being all NEGATIVE NORA about the shop. So no thanks… next!
LOVE TRIANGLES, YES OR NO?
Dear God, no.
THE MOST RECENT BOOK YOU COULDN’T FINISH?
I tend to finish everything I start? I’m not a DNF’er because I think EVERY book is worth finishing.
A BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?
Meat Market by Juno Dawson. SO GOOD. I am 200 pages in and I WANT TO KEEP READING MAN.
LAST BOOK YOU RECOMMENDED TO SOMEONE?
Ooooh… *checks twitter* Rumblestar by Abi Elphinstone. It’s not even out yet, haha!
OLDEST BOOK YOU’VE READ BY PUBLICATION DATE?
Who even knows!
NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ BY PUBLICATION DATE?
Hmmmm… probably Rumblestar by Abi Elphinstone again. That’s not out til May!
Can we change that to auto-buy authors?! Melinda Salisbury, Sara Barnard, Katherine Webber, Maz Evans, Kiran Milwood Hargrave, Abi Elphinstone. ALL women, cause women power!
BUYING BOOKS OR BORROWING BOOKS?
I’m a buyer… because most of the books I buy then get transferred to the school library, or my classroom library!
A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYONE SEEMS TO LOVE?
I wasn’t a MASSIVE Caraval fan. It just moved really slowly?!
BOOKMARKS OR DOG EARS?
Something that weirds my friend Kelly out about me is that I just REMEMBER what page I’m up to. I do own bookmarks, but I never seem to have one with me! I would NEVER fold a page over. Who would even do that? (My friend Charlotte that’s who… she’s a bad person, but I love her and accept her despite her faults haha!)
A BOOK YOU CAN ALWAYS RE-READ?
Matilda. It’s probably the only book I’ve ever reread. I do plan on rereading all of Melinda Salisbury’s books this summer though.
CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC?
Another weird factoid about me… I can read and listen to music if I’m travelling on a bus/train/car/aeroplane etc. but I can’t if I’m in bed reading. It’s a very bizarre thing, I know.
ONE POV OR MULTIPLE?
I do love a multiple perspective, but they have to be written well.
DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SITTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?
I LOVE A BINGE READ. I tend to read over the space of a few days – it’s just how my life works. During the holidays however… gimme that 3 hour reading binge of one book.
WHO DO YOU TAG?
ALL OF YOU, lol. So Charlotte, that’s you.
