The Rapid Fire Book Tag

Here’s what I’m hoping is a quick but fun tag that I found on Emma’s gorgeous blog The Bookworm Girl.

Here goes:

E-book or physical book? Physical…was there any doubt?

Paperback or hardcover? Paperback always.

Online or in-store book shopping? Definitely in-store….oh how I miss bookstores during this pandemic.

Trilogy or series? Neither.

Heroes or villains? Heroes, but especially reluctant or accidental ones.

A book you want everyone to read: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern….still my favourite book.

Recommend an underrated book: Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal…much more than meets the eye.

The last book you read: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

The last book you bought: The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa

Weirdest things you’ve used as a bookmark: Receipt, post-it note, clothing tag, scrapbooking paper, torn piece of notepad paper, a pencil, my phone.

Used books – yes or no: No thanks….crumbs, finger-marks, germs….I’ll skip that thanks.

Top 3 favourite genres:

  • Contemporary
  • Women’s fiction – chick-lit
  • Romance

Borrow or buy? Buy.

Characters or plot? Characters.

Long or short books? Short…ish… match my attention span.

Long or short chapters? Short…ish….so I feel like I’m completing the book faster.

Name the first 3 books you think of:

  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (I don’t know why….I’ve never read it)
  • The Humans by Matt Haig (because I just saw it recommended and now I want to read it)
  • The Muse by Jessie Burton (because I just started reading it)

Books that make you laugh or cry? I need laughter atm with the world as it is.

Our world or fictional worlds? Ours….I need to be able to relate to what’s going on.

Audiobooks – yes or no? Definitely YES!!

Do you ever judge a book by it’s cover? All the time….yes I know it’s wrong.

Book to movie or book to TV? Book to movie, I’m more inclined to watch a movie because I can do it in a sitting. I don’t have the staying power to watch a whole TV series.

A movie or TV show you preferred to it’s book? None – never happened.

Series or standalones? Standalones every time.

How would you answer these?
