Rapid Fire Book Tag

I’ve chosen to take part in The Rapid Fire Book Tag after seeing Dora over on BerriesAndBooks answer the questions!

1. E-Book or Physical Book?

I will always choose to own a physical copy of a book over an ebook, as I prefer holding & reading a book rather than my kindle; but ebooks can be wonderful because they allow me to have more access to ARCs & my kindle is great for hospital stays.

2. Paperback or Hardback?

Ahhh, this is a difficult one! I love hardbacks because they can be super beautiful, but I thoroughly disagree with hardbacks being released before paperbacks because they’re more expensive & this alienates poorer readers. If I had to choose for all of my books to be either hardback or paperback though, I would choose paperback because of the price thing, but also because they’re easier to carry & I find them easier to read!

3. Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

I would love to be able to go shopping in bookstores more often than I currently do but because of my illnesses it’s generally easier for me to order online!

4. Trilogies or Series?

Hmm… well I really love a duo-logy, but trilogies can obviously be wonderful too! I don’t mind series being made up of more than 3 books, as long as the story isn’t getting boring… generally I think 3 is a good & safe number.

5. Heroes or Villains?

I must admit that I do find myself very interested in villains, especially when they’re well developed.

6. A Book I Want Everyone to Read…

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, just one?! Well, I’ll go with a book that changed my life: In Order To Live by Yeonmi Park!

7. Recommend An Underrated Book…

Shadows on The Moon by Zoë Marriott!

8. The Last Book I Finished…

When writing this, Zara Zyon & A Maelstrom of Secrets by Melissa Ann Peters!

9. The Last Book I Bought…

The last ebook I bought was The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag by Kang Chol-Hwan & the last print book I bought was February Flowers by Fan Wu!

10. Weirdest Thing I’ve Used As A Book Mark…

Probably a sweet wrapper.

11. Used Books – Yes or No?

Yes, yes, yes! I miss shopping in charity shops so much & I often used to buy second-hand books online too (I say used to because I’m on a major & very strict buying ban).

12. Top Three Favourite Genres?
  • Fantasy
  • Historical Fiction
  • Science Fiction
13. Borrow or buy?

If I had unlimited funds I would always buy, but I’ve used my library quite a lot this year! I don’t borrow from people though.

14. Characters or Plot?


15. Long or Short Books?

I don’t mind short books & long books can be brilliant, but I prefer books that are a little in the middle.

16. Long or Short Chapters?

Shorter, rather than longer.

17. The First Three Books I Can Think Of…
  1. Starswept by Mary Fan
  2. Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone
  3. The White Queen by Philippa Gregory
18. Books That Made You Laugh Or Cry?

The last book to really make me laugh was I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo & the last book that made me cry was These Violent Delights by Victoria Namkung.

19. Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional! Obviously. But I also love fantasy twists on our world.

20. Audiobooks – Yes or No?

Yes & no… I only listen to audiobooks of books I’ve already read & I go through phases of not being able to survive without them & not using them at all.

21. Ever Judged A Book By Its Cover?

Every time.

22. Book to Movie or Book to Television Adaptations?

I prefer to watch TV shows to movies so probably TV adaptations.

23. A Movie or TV Show I Preferred to its Book…

True Blood… I read two of the books & hated them.

24. Series or Standalone?

I love both but I think I prefer standalone books at the moment.

    • I’m not sure if I root for the villains but I always want to know more about them! Sometimes their back stories can be a bit disappointing though, or offensive to people from certain backgrounds, if you get what I mean!
