I was tagged by Taiwo @ Stuffed Shelves to do the Rapid Fire Book Tag. I also saw that Danielle @ The Introverted Book Nerd did this and thought ‘Oh, that tag is cool! It’s one I could probably do’ so I was a happy little elf when I was tagged.
Let’s just get on with it shall we?
Ebook or Physical Book
eBook. Easier to carry around and I love the Kindle Notes function.
Paperback or Hardback
Online or In-Store Book Shopping
Online. My hermit heart doesn’t like public places.
Trilogies or Series
Heroes or Villains
Well, if a book is written well, as much as I may like the villain, I would end up rooting for the hero.
A Book I Want Everyone To Read
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. Or recently, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden WHAT A SHOCKER!
Recommend an Underrated Book
The bible. I don’t think it has been read by as many people who claim to have done so.
The Last Book I Finished
The last novel was The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. It was alright I s’pose. Earlier today I read the comic Skin & Earth #1 by Lights. That was good.
Weirdest Thing I’ve Used As a Bookmark
Hopes and wishes.
Used Books – Yes or No?
Top Three Favourite Genres
Metal, Blues and Folk.
Borrow or Buy?
Buy. I have a self imposed ‘must not borrow books from anyone’ rule.
Characters or Plot?
Oooooo that’s a hard one (she said). Probably characters.
Long or Short Books
Short books. I have problems with short term memory, so if a novel is too long, I literally forget what happens in them mid-read.
Long or Short Chapters?
Short. See above. Unless it’s a really good book that I am fully invested in.
The First Three Books I can Think Of
– The Voynich Manuscript by unknown
– The Big Penis Book by Dian Hanson
– The Little Book of Whittling by Chris Lubkemann
Our World or a Fictional World
Audiobooks – Yes or No?
Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations
Oh, well 5 years ago I would probably have said movie, but I think these days book to TV tends to be better.
A Movie or TV Show I preferred to its Book
Series or Standalone
Standalone. But I don’t mind a good series as long as the story stay fresh.
So that’s it. I’ve decided I like tags like this. They are super quick and easy and take little to no time to complete. My kind of assignment! 🙂
I still don’t really know people well enough to start tagging folk, but feel free to do this if you want!
Peace and Love.
