The Rapid Fire Book Tag 

1. E-Book or Physical Book?

I honestly love and read both. I’ll read any and every way I can!

2. Paperback or Hardback?

Hardback. I mean I’m a hardcore hardback junky. I’ll spend months tracking down a copy of a hardback instead of buying the paperback.

3. Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

Used to love in-store but I’m reformed and now online is the only job! It’s mainly because the pandemic has thought me that a lot of people are awful and personal space is something they are never going to partake in.

4. Trilogies or Series?

Hmmmm I love a good series and have a few that I regularly reread and keep up with but a quick look at my shelves tells me I own a lot more trilogies.

5. Heroes or Villains?

Usually the hero but I’ve been known to become enamored with a villain a time or two.

6. A book you want everyone to read?

Lumatere Chronicles

7. Recommend an underrated book?

See above.

8. The last book you finished?

The Alien’s Touch by Zoey Draven

9. The Last Book You Bought?

Seven Days in June by Tia Williams

10. Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?

Hair bobbin. Regularly. This is crazy because I own so many bookmarks and some are within reach of where I sit and read.

11. Used Books: Yes or No?

Love both. As I mentioned in question 2, I sometimes have to track down hardbacks of books and they are often secondhand. One such book is one of my all time favourite books, Froi of the Exiles from the Lumatere Chronicles. Took me months and months to find a copy and when it arrived I discovered it was signed. The best purchase I ever made.

12. Top Three Favourite Genres?

Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance.

13. Borrow or Buy?

Buy. Unfortunately it’s very difficult to get the books I want in libraries here. I’m told they are good about ordering some of them in but I feel I’d only ever be making requests for them to get the books I want.

14. Characters or Plot?

Oh, that’s a difficult one so I’ll say both! 😀

15. Long or Short Books?

Love a long book.

16. Long or Short Chapters?

Love a short chapter.

17. Name The First Three Books You Think Of…

Froi of the Exlies by Melina Marchetta

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Certain Dark Thinks by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

18. Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?

I will usually pick the one that will make me laugh but I LOVE a good cry book. I just can’t have them all the time.

19. Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional!

20. Audiobooks: Yes or No?

Absolutely yes! And for a few reasons. They are fantastic and they are accessible. My niece is dyslexic and hated reading but audiobooks have opened up the world of reading to her so I’ll fight anyone who says they aren’t reading.

I also love to sometimes read along with a book while listening to it, especially on a reread when I’ve discovered a really great narrator.

21. Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?

Regularly. It does not always pay off.

22. Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?

I’m one of those awful people who will always say a certain book I’ve read would make a fabulous movie or show and then the book gets made into a movie or show and I never watch it. It’s my way! 😀

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

Chocolat by Joanne Harris

24. Series or Standalone’s?

For longevity I’m going to go with series.
