E-book or Physical Book?
Definitely physical. I can only handle so much screen time without getting a headache/migraine, and I use screens the entire day at work.
Paperback or Hardback?
I prefer hardcover, but I do have lots of paperbacks since they’re cheaper…and some books only come in paperback.
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
When it comes to pre-orders and sales/cheap books, I go online. But I’ll hit up my local used bookstore occasionally for some good deals.
Trilogies or Series?
If I really like the books, then series, because I love the characters. Some books should be over after book one though.
Heroes or Villains?
Both, but I’ll pick villains. I love me some misunderstood bad boys: Rhysand, The Darkling, Draco Malfoy, etc.
A Book I Want Everyone to Read
I’m just going to say the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Those books meant so much to me as a preteen/teen. And they’re what gave me my first foray into creative writing via HP fanfiction.
Recommend an Underrated Book
Summer of Sloane by Erin L. Schneider is one of my absolute favorites. The writing is amazing. I really don’t know how it’s only got 269 reviews on Goodreads. READ THIS BOOK PEOPLE!
The Last Book I Finished
Broken Prince by Erin Watt. I enjoyed it more than book one in that series. I wouldn’t say they’re favorites/high quality material, but they’re fun, entertaining reads.
The Last Book I Bought
The last physical book I bought was Save the Date by Morgan Matson. I found out she was signing all the first edition copies, so I pre-ordered that baby right away.
Weirdest Thing I’ve Used As a Bookmark
Post-it note? I don’t think I’ve really used anything weird lol
Used Books – Yes or No?
Of course! A previous answer mentioned a local used bookstore that I frequent sometimes. As long as the book isn’t moldy/destroyed, I’m all for used books.
Top Three Favorite Genres
Borrow or Buy?
I want to buy all the books, but I’m not a billionaire, so I borrow a lot from the library. Although lately I’ve been trying to read books that I already own.
Characters or Plot?
Characters for sure! I mean the plot can’t be super slow/boring, but characters are what make a book enjoyable. If you hate a character, it doesn’t matter how good the plot is.
Long or Short Books?
Um can I say somewhere in the middle? Haha. I don’t like super short books, but I have such a bad habit of putting off 450+ page books, because they’re soooo long. My perfect length book is about 300-400 pages.
Long or Short Chapters?
Probably short. I feel like I’m accomplishing more, and then if I have to stop reading, I can easily finish a chapter before putting the book aside.
Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?
Lots of them? I seriously can’t remember all of them that made me laugh and/or cry.
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional worlds. Our world sucks right now, and book boyfriends are so much better than real guys.
Audiobooks – Yes or No?
Yes, especially on road trips, or at work. I love that I can read during times that I normally don’t get anything done. Although if I’m super busy, I can’t concentrate and have to replay parts.
Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
Yes, who hasn’t?
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Um probably book to movie. I feel like the budget for movies is bigger than TV, but I’m not sure. It’s easier/cheaper to own movies than TV series too.
A Movie or TV Show I Preferred to its Book
Maybe it’s an unpopular opinion, but the Nicholas Sparks books I’ve read don’t compare to the movies. *shrugs*
Series or Standalones?
Both, but if I love the characters, of course I want more of them. Although standalones are nice sometimes, because you don’t have to worry about cliffhangers.
