I’ve been doing a lot of book tags lately so I promise I’ll have some book reviews up soon! In the meantime, whilst I’m juggling about six different reads and nowhere close to finishing any of them, I figured that this tag would be pretty fun too.
I first saw this post on Caffeinated Fae’s blog here!
Reading on the bed or on the couch?
Generally, I’d say I prefer to read in bed, especially when it’s cold outside and I can curl up with my duvet. It’s really nice to sit on the sofa by the window with a good book in summer though, so both are good options!
Main character: male or female?
Although I do have a few favourite reads where the main character is a male (*cough* Anna Dressed in Blood), I usually pick up books with a female main character.
Sweet or salty snacks while reading?
Salty snacks, generally Pringles, are my snack of choice. If there’s cake in the house, though, that always goes really well with a reading session.
Trilogies or quartets?
Trilogies! My favourite series is a duology so I generally prefer when book series’ are shorter. I always find that trilogies give you plenty of content without overcomplicating the story, and they’re about as much as my attention span can handle.
Reading in the AM or PM?
PM! I always struggle to read during the day. Plus, a book is always more satisfying if you stay up all night to read it.
First or third-person POV?
I don’t have a problem with either, but I definitely like first-person better. I love getting inside a character’s head (and I’ve never been able to write more than a couple of pages in third…)
Libraries or bookstores?
I’d love to say libraries, but I’m a hoarder. I want all the books and can’t bear the thought of giving them back.
Books that make you laugh or cry?
Probably books that make me cry, because I cry at the majority of books I read. Sometimes it’s happy tears but, usually, it’s really, really not.
Black or white book covers?
Black book covers are stunning. Especially black covers with foil blocking (*heart eyes*).
Character or plot driven?
This one is so tough, but I feel like, if I’ve fallen in love with a set of characters, I could read about even the most mundane things that they do, so I’d have to say character-driven.
Who I’m tagging:
I’m still new and don’t know anyone to tag BUT I’d love to use this post to make some blogging-community friends; feel free to tell me about your blog below or say hi. Also, if you want to do this tag, consider this you being tagged!
