Would you rather…? bookish tag!

Well hello there Tuesday! How are you my love?

Today I’m taking on the Would you rather… bookish tag! I was tagged by my lovely friend Charlotte (yes, nominated best newcomer Charlotte! so proud) to take on her 8 questions. If you fancy checking out her post, you’ll find it here!

The way it works is I’ll answer Charlotte’s WYR questions, then I’ll come up with my own and then tag some people to do it! I hope you enjoy! Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Even if I don’t tag you, you are MORE THAN WELCOME to join in!

LET’S GO.

Would you rather only read standalones or only read series?

This isn’t really a question in my life. I dig a standalone, but my gosh, I LIVE FOR a series. I’m all about getting emotionally involved, falling for the hero, watching the villain wreak havoc over multiple books and FEELING ALL THE EMOTIONS. So series. (If Sara Barnard however started writing series, I’m not sure my poor little heart could take it!)

Would you rather only read contemporary or only read fantasy?

WOAH THERE CHARLOTTE. That’s like asking me to choose between Mel and Sara. THAT’S NOT OK. I’m just going to ignore this questions because RUDE. (But fantasy, let’s be real)

Would you rather drop your favourite book in the bath, or have it fall into a shredder?

I don’t know why this answer, but it was my gut reaction: shredder. I guess I could use the shredded pieces as something cute afterwards (and I’d go out and buy a new copy of the book regardless!)

Would you rather read a book that ended on a cliffhanger or one that broke your heart?

I do not live for a cliffhanger… so a book that will break my heart EVERY SINGLE TIME THANKS.

Would you rather have every book you read spoiled or never get to know how any book you read ends?

Just like the cliffhanger question, I love when a book gives me some closure in life, so I’d rather have spoilers ALL OVER MY LIFE. I’m quite a fan of spoilers actually – I openly embrace them (mostly: there are times when I DO NOT appreciate them)

Would you rather your book was missing the first and last page, or a random page in the middle?

A random page. I need my closure thanks.

Would you rather be stuck on an island with no book to read, or stuck in a library where you couldn’t read any of the books?

What are the rules behind “couldn’t read” the books? Am I not allowed to? Am I not able to? Are they too high for me to reach? Charlotte, I need clarification for this question… because my answer will change depending on the rules.

Would you rather have your best friend hate your favourite book or your worst enemy love it?

I would forgive my best friend for hating a book I love. Although all of my best friends have WONDERFUL TASTE so we’re alrite there!

My questions:

  1. Would you rather be best friends with your favourite character or your favourite author?
  2. Would you rather have lunch with the villain or the hero in the last book you read?
  3. Would you rather only read books by men or women?
  4. Would you rather recommend a book that everyone ends up hating or hate a book everyone keeps recommending to you?
  5. Would you rather only buy plain book covers or movie tie in covers of books?
  6. Would you rather only own hardbacks or ebooks?
  7. Would you rather have a main character named after you or a book dedicated to you?
  8. Would you rather have to annotate every book you read or have to fold the pages of every book you read?

I tag Cora, Aoife and Andrew.

Would you rather…? Bookish edition

Hello there friends!

Today I’m doing a tag I saw on my friend Amy’s blog, filled with ‘would you rather…?’ type questions (Those of you who have seen any of my events know that I love a would you rather…? question!). Check our Amy’s post here.

1. Would you rather have a friend who loses your books, or one who dog-ears them?

Either way I’d need new friends ha! I think I’d rather have my original dog-eared copy back than not get it back!

2. Would you rather secretly love a book everyone else hates, or secretly hate a book everyone else loves?

Hmmm… I think there’s definitely some books I don’t like that lots of people love… so probably the second option.

3. Would you rather be stuck on a very long plane or train ride without a book?

Who travels anywhere without a book? What kind of strange being do you think I am? However, I’d rather be on a train ride without a book. There’s more to look at out of the window.

4. Would you rather have dinner with your favorite author or your favorite character?

My favourite authors. If I could have dinner with some of my favourite authors, I think I’d just die. That would be excellent. Plus, it could ACTUALLY happen. (Sara, Mel, Katie, Alwyn, Laura, Maz, Kiran: I’m looking at you!)

5. Would you rather date a character you have a crush on or your crush from real life?

Lol. Get me on a date with Jin from Rebel of the Sands trilogy NOW THANKS.

6. Would you rather have your favorite book turned into a movie, or your favorite movie turned into a book?

I’d rather have my favourite book turned into a movie. I never think that movies into books quite have the same impact. Books that are turned into movies are different – there’s always so much more in the book.

7. Would you rather read a book with an annoying cliffhanger, or one where your favorite character is killed off?

WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THIS? What do you by annoying? I am not a massive fan of cliffhangers to be honest. I like my books to end rounded, all loose ends tied up. But I also like my favourite characters to keep existing (Salisbury, I’m looking at you). So if I’m being true to the question, I’ll have to go for cliffhangers.

8. Would you rather lose the ability to read any new books, or the ability to reread books you’ve already read?

Oh this one’s easy. I RARELY reread books, so I’d rather never be able to reread books.

9. Would you rather live in a library or a bookstore?

Oooooh good question. I’m going to go for a book shop. I don’t know why, but that’s my answer.

10. Would you rather lose your place or get a paper cut every time you read a book?

Paper cuts are badtimes. I’ve got a pretty good memory so I’ll go for losing my palce everytime thanks.

11. Would you rather have to always read in the dark, or always read books with tiny text?

Oh lord, reading in the dark. I can use my phone light to see the words. Small text is not funtimes.

12. Would you rather read by a fireplace, or on the beach?

ON A BEACH OK. I bloody love the beach.

And there you go! Some choices for my ‘Would you rather…?’ questions!

What do you think of my choices? Talk to me! Tweet me! Send me a cocktail to the beach with your question!
