Rapid Fire Book Tag

E-Book or Physical Book?
Physical books all the way!! I love being able to hold (and smell 😂) a book whilst I am reading it. I don't mind E-books and have had to read more since becoming a blogger but I find that I read them slower because staring at a screen for too long starts to mess with my eyes.
Paperback or Hardback?
Although hardbacks are pretty, I am a paperback girl! They're so much easier to fit into my bag whenever I'm out and about, not to mention so much lighter! I've recently got a nice book sleeve as well so that sorts out the problem I was having with accidentally damaging my books.
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
I love in-store book shopping but I usually save it for special occasions when I can really browse round the shop and it's usually after my birthday/Christmas when I have some gift tokens. I love the feeling of being able to pick up a book, take it to the till and just be able to have it straight away. But most of the time I do get my books from online because it is cheaper 😂
Trilogies or Series?
I love both but slight preference towards trilogies.
Heroes or Villains?
Ooh I love a good villain!
A book you want everyone to read?
A Gentleman in Moscow! I've recommended it a million times before and I'll do it a million times again 😂 Fantastic book!
Recommend an underrated book?
I love The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman - it's so good and it's a whole series! I haven't seen many other people saying about it but it is great!
The last book you finished?
Daughter of the Zel by Phoebe Ritter - a very good read!
The Last Book You Bought?
The Last Wish (The Witcher) by Andrzej Sapkowski
Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
Jeez what haven't I used? 😂 Receipts, cat hairs (which did not work 😂) - honestly anything closest to me!
Used Books: Yes or No?
No I prefer to have my own book.
Top Three Favorite Genres?
Borrow or Buy?
Buy! I should be better with borrowing but I love knowing that I can write or highlight my favourite lines in a book and most importantly that I don't have to give it back. It's heartbreaking having to take a book back!
Characters or Plot?
Umm I think plot for me. I will always find characters to love but if there isn't a plot to support it then it would kind of fall flat.
Long or Short Books?
I prefer short books. I do love long books but I have to be in the right mindset for a long book and ready for the long haul 😂
Long or Short Chapters?
Can I say medium? 😂 I find really long chapters very hard to keep my interest but also I find it hard to get into a story that has just really short chapters 😂 I'm a mess 😂
Name The First Three Books You Think Of:
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
(Everything on my TBR that I should have read by now 😂)
Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
Laugh! But if I'm being honest everything makes me cry 😂
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional worlds! I mean both are great but with fictional you can be transported anywhere and anything in possible!
Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Not for me 😥 In theory they are really great but I kind of tune out when someone is speaking to me for ages and I just realised that that sounds SO BAD 🙈😂 My brain can't deal with having someone to read to me which is so strange because my favourite thing when I was a kid was to have my parents read to me 😂 Now, I just get distracted and think about other things and I'm really not digging myself out of this hole!
Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
I know I shouldn't but yes! I can't resist a pretty book 😂
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
I don't mind either tbh 🤷♀️
A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
I really preferred The Death Cure movie (third in the Maze Runner Trilogy) over the book, it was really well done!
Series or Standalones?
Series for me, I love my babies 😍
Sorry, I've just realised I wasn't very quick fire on many of these 😂 That's so on brand for me though, I just waffle on about anything 😂
I'm going to tag:
And YOU if you fancy doing this tag! ❤️
