Book Tag: Would you rather?

images
Good evening readers, having a very quiet lazy Sunday evening watching ‘Playing for Keeps,’ starring the rather rugged Gerard Butler. It has a rather awful write-up however, snuggled up on the sofa with a blanket and sipping hot chocolate I thought I would answer my own ‘Book Tag: Would you rather?’ You can find the original post here. Onto the answers.

Read only trilogies or stand alones?

I do read a fair number of trilogies and on the whole I do enjoy them. Being such an avid reader, always looking to find the next author and the next great book I tend to prefer stand alone books.

Read only female or male authors?

Completely honestly, although I will read the name of the author when starting a book it doesn’t often register whether the book is written by a male or female author till when I’m writing the review. However, recently I have read some incredible books by male classic authors so I would have to say male.

Shop at Waterstones or Amazon?

Although I absolutely love going to a book store, running my fingers over the spines and picking them up and putting them down, for the prices, would have to be Amazon.

All books become movies or television shows?

Mmmm, difficult question. I think because I prefer movies to television shows I would have to go with that.

Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

I think it would have to be five books a week because only being able to read five pages a day would be impossible.

Be a professional reviewer or author?

I think although I’m currently thinking about attempting to start writing a little more professionally and have something published I would much rather be a professional reviewer.

Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?

Without thought it would have to be read more books, there are so many more for me to get through and get read. The books I have read will always mean something to me, especially the ones that I have read over and over, but for me, it has to be new books.

Be a librarian or book seller?

I would say a Bookseller you get to see new books coming in and keep up to date with whats going on in the book world

Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?

I think I would have to say every genre except your favourite because the genres I read mix and match all the time so I’m sure I wouldn’t miss out.

Only read physical books or eBooks?

I have a terrible confession for this one; my Kindle has been seriously neglected the last year and it’s something I need to change. I used to use it all the time but my charger wasn’t working properly and it took me so long to sort it out that I then couldn’t find my Kindle and so it’s been left a little unloved. However, I choose physical books, every time.

A lovely little Sunday post for you all. I would love to hear you answers, comment below or tweet me @littlebookblog1

Musing Mondays: mylittlebookblog

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB that asks you to muse about one of several “bookish” questions… you can check the blog out here: http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com! Now my post today comes after reading this post here: http://bookmammalmusings.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/monday-musings-a-book-blogger-quiz/ So, here we go!

Here’s my musing for this week–

Here is The Book Blogger Quiz as featured on Amanda’s Nose In A Book, below are my answers! Comment your answers at the bottom if you fancy! 🙂 ❤

What are your top three book pet hates?

  1. Folded over corners in second hand books…just use a bookmark!
  2. Books that end extremely quickly…as though the author had given up and just wanted to get it over with at the end
  3. Books with bad grammer…as an avid book reader it shocks me that so many books have terrible grammtical errors

Describe your perfect reading spot.

A plushy window seat, a can of freezing cold Pepsi Max, and a bar of cookie-crumble Galaxy cookie crumble on the sill next to me and Lola our little bunny curled up at my feet. Perfect

Tell us three book confessions.

  1. I have never kept a bookmark for more than a couple of days; I am the most disorganised person, and bookmarks just seem to run away from me
  2. Reading a fiction book with parts underlined or circled really upsets me
  3. I never skip to the end of the book, I think it is a terrible thing to do!

When was the last time you cried during a book?

Re-reading the Book Thief, (and yes, I cried the first time too!)

How many books are on your bedside table?

I don’t have a bedside table…but on my desk there is a pile the length of my arm!

What is your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?

Minstrels!

Name three books you would recommend to everyone.

This is hard—recommending books is so “person-specific”! I’ll list three books I often recommend to fellow booklovers—

  1. The Great Gatsby: Scott Fitzgerald
  2. Remember To Breathe: Simon Pont
  3. The Chocolate Run: Dorothy Koomson
