I saw Kayleigh over at kayleighsblogs do this tag & decided that I would take part as well! This tag works the same way as any Would You Rather game; I’m given two options & have to pick which one I would rather do!
1. Would you rather spend the day with your favourite author or your favourite character?
Hmm… I guess it would have to be my favourite character, simply because I’ve met a lot of my top authors & am more likely to meet them again in the future at book events; whereas meeting a character from a book is pretty much a once-in-a-life-time opportunity!
2. Would you rather Katniss Everdeen or Tris Prior?
PASS. I’ve not read the books that these characters feature in, sorry.
3. Would you rather read only trilogies or stand alones?
I was talking to my pal over at Utopia-State-Of-Mind.com yesterday about how I sometimes fall out of love with trilogies because by the time the final book has been released I’ve lost interest or forgotten what’s gone on in the first two books so I think I would probably have to choose stand alone novels. Stand alone novels can be so incredible, although I do often wish there was another book to sink my teeth into when I finish them… to be honest, duologies are probably my favs.
4. Would you rather become a famous writer or reviewer?
At the moment my answer would definitely have to be reviewer! I’ve never been very good at writing fiction so I’m not sure I have the ability to ever become a famous writer, but I’m quite proud of my ability to write decent reviews so it would be cool to get some wider recognition for that.
5. Would you rather read one book a year but remember everything, or read 100 books a year & remember nothing?
Definitely the latter! This would mean being able to experience my favourite books for the first time over & over again, & that would be incredible. Plus, my need for escape would never be saturated by just one fictional world.
6. Would you rather be locked in a library or a book store?
I think it would probably have to be a library, simply because there would be so many old books that I may never read unless I was in that sort of situation – I shop at charity shops (when I’m not on buying bans) for exactly the same reason.
7. Would you rather read a book with a cliff-hanger ending or a book with a heartbreaking ending?
This is really difficult, because in some ways I wish more books would end on less positive notes than a lot of them do – simply so that the endings were more realistic/believable… but I also like endings that allow the reader to make their own decisions about how the characters lives progress after the story has finished. Basically, I’m not sure so please don’t make me choose!!!
8. Would you rather have a book ending spoiled or never know the ending?
I think I would have to choose to have the end of a book spoiled for me, instead of never knowing the ending, because I sometimes work out what the end of a book will be, but it very rarely ruins the story for me so I don’t see why someone else telling me the ending would be any different.
Thanks for stopping by, & make sure you check out Kayleigh’s answers to these questions over on her blog! If you are inspired to answer these questions then please post a link to your answers in the comments below as I’d love to read them 🙂
