Rapid Fire Book Tag

This looks like fun! I saw this on Purple Manatees.  It was created by GirlReading. 

E-Book or Physical Book?

Physical books. It is easier on the eyes. Though when it comes to big books, 500 pages or more, I prefer to commute with the e-book or audiobook. I can’t carry all that weight. Also I do like e-books for there search feature.

Paperback or Hardback?

Paperback for commuting. Hardback for autographed copies of series I love that don’t leave my book shelves.

Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

In store. I like touching the book and flipping through. I also can check it for damages.  Often when I have bought online it comes with some cover damage and that is so annoying.

Trilogies or Series?

Oooo, depends. I more often prefer trilogies. Three and done.  But, if it’s anything as good as Harry Potter then series.

Heroes or Villains?

Why not both? Can’t have one without the other. It also just depends on how well developed they are.

A book you want everyone to read?

Red Rising (saga) by Pierce Brown. The world needs more Howlers.

Recommend an underrated book?

Delicious! by Ruth Reichl

Tunnel Vision by Keith Lowe

The Lightless trilogy by C.A. Higgins

The last book you finished?

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro.

The Last Book You Bought?

Dune by Frank Herbert and The Secret History by Donna Tart on Audible.

Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?

Not sure. I only use actual bookmarks. Maybe a capped pen?

Used Books: Yes or No?

I don’t often buy them but I am not opposed as long as they are in good condition.

Top Three Favorite Genres?

Science-Fiction, Fantasy, and Historical Fiction.

Borrow or Buy?

I more often buy but if I am iffy and want to save money then I borrow.

Characters or Plot?

Characters. When a plot is good but I feel nothing for the characters then the book becomes DNF. There have been times that I thought a plot could use some work but liked the characters and so I continued.

Long or Short Books?

Depends on many factors. Is it a series or a standalone? Is the writing excellent or mediocre?

Long or Short Chapters?

Short, definitely. I need to take breaks to rest my eyes.

Name The First Three Books You Think Of:

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?

I cry a lot.  I wish I could find more books that make me laugh.

Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional.  I need an escape from our world.

Audiobooks: Yes or No?

Hell yes! I am trying to gradually move towards listening to mostly audiobooks.

Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?

Who doesn’t? The cover grabs my attention and if the story sounds interesting then I read it.

Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?

TV all the way.  With movies too many details are omitted and there is less time for character development. That’s less so with TV.   I think only short stories should be adapted into movies. Books should become a TV series.

A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Series or Standalones?
