The lovely Kelly from This Northern Gal tagged the #NorthernBookBloggers , and I am a bad book blogger who has sat on this tag for a month because every time I tried to do it, it gave me real stress. So much stress that when I sat down to do it this time, I spent 20 mins procrastinating by trying to take the perfect “shooting-myself-in-the-head” selfie. You’re welcome.
E-Book or Physical Book?
Physical. I like my Kindle for when I’m travelling, but when I’m not, physical books are where it’s at.
Paperback or Hardback?
Paperback. They’re easier to read in bed and I hate dust jackets more than you can possibly imagine.
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
In store. I only buy e-books online these days. Nothing beats a trip to a real book shop.
Trilogies or Series?
Trilogies. I love a good series, but I also like knowing when they’re going to end so I can manage my expectations and prepare my emotions accordingly.
Heroes or Villains?
Both. I refuse to choose between them and you can’t make me. So there.
A book you want everyone to read?
The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven. It’s an important subject and people need to understand it better.
Recommend an underrated book?
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. It’s not YA but it’s bookish and insanely clever.
The last book you finished?
A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews and I am not okay.
The Last Book You Bought?
Who Let the Gods Out? by Maz Evans.
Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
A sock. I was desperate. Don’t ask.
Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes, if they’re in good condition.
Top Three Favourite Genres?
Dystopia, fantasy and magical realism.
Borrow or Buy?
Buy. Always. If I borrow a book and I love it, I’ll end up buying a copy anyway.
Characters or Plot?
Characters. They make or break a book for me.
Long or Short Books?
Neither. I want something in the middle. I’m awkward, deal with it.
Long or Short Chapters?
Name The First Three Books You Think Of…
Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard. State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury. Spark by Alice Broadway.
Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
I do not have emotions. Asking me to choose one is like asking me to smell the colour nine with my third ear.
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional. Out world sucks.
Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Yes. I’m new to regularly listening to books but thus far I enjoy it.
Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Yes. And I believe anyone who says they never do this isn’t being honest with themselves.
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Movie. By a small margin.
A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
There isn’t one. I don’t think. Well, there probably is but I can’t think of one right now.
Series or Standalones?
Do you fancy torturing yourself with a rapid fire tag of difficult questions? Crack on, I’d love to see you answer this!
