The 20 Questions Book Tag

March 10, 2018

I was tagged by the lovely Avery for this one, and if you haven’t checked out Avery’s blog, you totally should! It’s amazing and he is such a sweetheart. <3


1. HOW MANY BOOKS ARE TOO MANY BOOKS IN A SERIES?

That’s a tough one to answer, because it depends on how much I love the series. It also depends on where I come in at – if I get into the series early on, and I’m just picking up one more book a year or so, it’s easier than starting a series that already has 7+ books in it. That said, I think there’s a vampire romance series that has 25+ books right now, and that feels like way too much for any one series.

2. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?

They’re kind of a catch-22. On one hand, they’re a great way to keep me interested, but on the other hand, they can be so frustrating!

3. HARDCOVER OR PAPERBACK

Typically, I prefer hardcovers. Though they’re heavier and tougher on my wrists, they withstand damage so much better!

4. FAVOURITE BOOK

5. LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK

^ see previous answer.

Furyborn. 🙁 The prologue was one of the most beautiful pieces of writing I’ve ever read… and then chapter 1 started, and everything was steadily downhill from there.

11. NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ

If we’re only counting books that have already released in stores, I read several ARCs for this past Tuesday’s releases, my favorite being To Kill a Kingdom.

12. FAVOURITE AUTHOR

13. BUYING BOOKS OR BORROWING BOOKS

Buying! I don’t like the pressure that comes with borrowing.

14. A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYBODY ELSE SEEMS TO LIKE

There are a few, but probably one of the most controversial ones is Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. I thought it was disjointed and kind of terrible.

15. BOOKMARKS OR DOG EARS

Bookmarks! I don’t really care what others do with their own books, but I don’t like dog-earring mine. Especially in old books, it can make the paper really brittle and fragile!

16. A BOOK YOU CAN ALWAYS RE-READ

Definitely The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle. I must’ve read it 20 times over the years and it’s never gotten old, ever.

17. CAN YOU READ WHILST LISTENING TO MUSIC

It depends on the music! If it’s just instrumental stuff, that answer is basically always “yes”, but if it has vocals, rarely.

18. ONE POV OR MULTIPLE POVS

Either – as long as it’s done well, I can see the value in both styles.

19. DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SITTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?

If it’s a YA contemporary, I frequently read those in one sitting, but otherwise, I rarely finish a book in one day. I used to constantly, but it’s hard to find the time lately.

20. A BOOK YOU’VE READ BECAUSE OF THE COVER

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I feel like her books have such lovely, fun covers.


If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged! <3

    I’ve never heard of The Only Alien on the Planet. It’s that good?

      I absolutely adore it. It was a YA contemporary that came out in the 90s and won a ton of awards, but for some reason, fell off the radar pretty hard. I’ve actually only ever met one other person in my entire life who had also read it.

    To Kill a Kingdom one of your favorite recent reads?! Good thing I have the tab of your review open already. I’ve been eyeing that book for a while now because.. pirates, doh. Now if only I had some money to spare. *sigh*

      YOU NEED IT SO MUCH, I SWEAR. Like… if only you lived stateside, I would legit send it to you and let you borrow it, lmao. It’s SO GOOD.

        As with the Grisha-trilogy.. IT ARRIVED YESTERDAY. AND OBSIDIO. ANDANDAND. I cannot wait to read it but I’m totally messing up my “currently reading”-shelf lately so I don’t know. xD
        I need to move to the States. And take Alex with me. All the fun people together. YES PLEASE. [Like, we could genuinely just come together for the day and just READ. I’d looooove that. I need that.]
