Thank you Lorraine at The Book Review Cafe for tagging me for the Rapid Fire Book Tag! Here are my answers…
eBooks or physical books?
Probably 90% of the time ebooks. BUT I almost always order the hardcover book of all my 5 star reads. I take the paper covers off and put them on my bookshelves around my house so I can gaze at them:)
Paperback or hardback?
If I’m going to read print I prefer hardcovers
Online or in-store shopping?
Online for most of my buying but I go to the bookstore every week and take pictures of all the new releases I like and try to occasionally buy from there as I want to support the business. A perfect day is drinking coffee and reading in a bookstore😍
Trilogies or series?
I really haven’t read many trilogies (I can only think of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes) so series for sure
Heroes or villains?
Heros…I’m drawn to rooting for the good guy
A Book You Want Everyone to Read?
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Recommend an underrated book.
It has to be Tall Oaks by Chris Whitaker….read it!!
The last book you finished?
A Brilliant Death By Robin Yocum….fantastic read!!
Weirdest thing you used as a book mark?
Since I don’t read a lot of print I usually grab a receipt or post it
Used books, yes or no?
Yes, definitely used books
Top three favourite genres?
Mysteries, Crime Fiction, Thrillers
Borrow or buy?
Borrow mostly then buy 5 star reads for my bookshelf
Characters or plot?
Characters. I need to connect with at least one and then I’m usually on board with the plot
Short or long book?
Long, they allow for longer time to get lost!
Long or short chapters?
Short for a quicker pace
Name the first three books you think of?
Sirens By Joseph Knox, I Liked My Life By Abby Fabiaschi , You by Caroline Kepnes
Books that make you laugh or cry?
Cry…I think it takes a special talent to evoke those kinds of feelings in a reader
Our world or fictional worlds?
Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
Yes, I try not to but I’ve passed on books if I didn’t like the cover and/or title
Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?
Book to Movie
Series or standalone?
Both, I often jump into a series midway or later, I figure I can always go back and catch up if I want to:)
