The Rapid Fire Book Tag

Rapid Fire Tag Header.png

This was a really quick (unsurprisingly) and fun tag! I really shows up my indecisiveness though.

The original tag was created by GirlReading.

I spotted it over at A City of Books.

Let me know your answers!

 

1. Do you prefer e-book or physical books?

Either.

 

2. Do you prefer paperback or hardback?

Hardback by a smidge. I don’t have to worry about cracking the spine.

 

3. Do you prefer in-store or online shopping?

In-store in general, but a lot of indie/ marginalised/ kindle-only options are far, far easier to get a hold of online so…

 

4. Do you prefer trilogies or series?

Series. In the past couple of years though I’ve been really enjoying standalones and duologies more and more.

 

5. Do you prefer heroes or villains?

A hero who is willing to get their hands a little dirty.

 

6. What is a book I want everyone to read?

 

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Definitely.

 

12. What is your top 3 favourite genres?

Buy. I hate borrowing from friends, I always get distracted and still have their book two years later. (Although I use my library too.)

 

14. Characters or plot?

Characters.

 

15. Long or short books?

Either. I do find 800+ pretty daunting though.

 

16. Long or short chapters?

Short.

 

17. First 3 books that you think of.

 

Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Circe by Madeline Miller

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

Fictional.

Yes. A third to half of my reading in a working week.

 

21. Have you ever judged a book by its cover?

All the time. Proudly.

 

22. Book to Movie or Book to TV adaptation?

Book to TV Adaption. All the way.

 

23. A movie or TV Adaption I prefer to the books?

M*A*S*H. There are 256 episodes and I’ve watched them all four or five times (at least….). The book is a sexist, racist mess.

 

24. Series or standalone?

Both.
