The delightful Avery @ Red Rocket Panda tagged me in the 20 Questions Book Tag recently, and I’m excited to take part!
1. How many books is too many in a series?
I guess it mostly depends on how I feel about the series? It’s hard for me to keep up with anything longer than 4 or 5, and even then it’s going to take me a long time to read them all because I’ll read standalone books in between.
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
Hate love hate love hate love. It’s so hard not knowing. But I want to know! It does make me much more enthused to continue a series if the book I’m reading ends in a cliffhanger, though.
3. Hardcopy or paperback?
Hardcovers for aesthetics, paperbacks for ease of reading.
4. Favorite Book
I’ll give you two: House of Leaves Mark Z. Danielewski and Strange Weather by Joe Hill.
5. Least Favorite Book
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’m sorry, I just, yeah.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
Triangles, no. Triads, yes please.
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish
The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor, it just wasn’t holding my interest.
8. A book you’re currently reading
I’m currently reading 4 books, but in my bag at the moment is Wolf-Speaker (The Immortals #2) by Tamora Pierce.
9. Last book you recommended to someone
Hmmm, I recommend a lot of books. Probably Annihilation, though.
10. Oldest book you’ve read
Romeo and Juliet! Or, if plays don’t count, Oroonoko
11. Newest book you’ve read
That would be The Merry Spinster, which gets released in March.
12. Favorite Author
Joe Hill, for sure!
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
Borrowing! I can get all the books I want for free, and my shelves are uncluttered. I do like to buy my favorites, and books that I think are beautiful, though.
14. A book that you dislike that everyone else seems to like
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!!!!
15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
Mostly bookmarks, but I can hang with the dogears, especially on already worn books
16. A book you can always reread
Essentially anything by Tamora Pierce. I always get swept up in the characters and the story, even when I know everything already!
17. Can you read whilst listening to music?
Not typically! Sometimes, if the music has no lyrics or if I don’t already know the lyrics to what I’m listening to. But usually it’s too distracting.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
I like both! I think I prefer multiple, because you get a larger perspective, but I’m not torn too far one way or the other.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
One sitting used to be my jam, but more often it’s multiple days now. I get fatigued easily, and also like to switch between books.
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover
Goldeline pulled me in with almost the cover alone:
I’m tooooo lazy to tag anyone right now, but let me know if you do it so I can see your answers!
