Hi everybody! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far! 😊
As you most likely saw from the title of this post, I’m here with the 20 Questions Book Tag! I found this on Suhani’s blog, Random Reader’s Rambles, a while ago. She left an open nomination, and I thought it looked fun, so I’m finally here doing this tag! 😄
1: How many books is too many for a series?
I think that if an author writes more than four or five books in a series, the series can get kind of boring as they run out of ideas. I’m not saying that that’s how it is with every longer series, but I think that that’s how it goes with a lot of the books I’ve read that are longer than four books.
2: How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I love them…but I also don’t! 😆
3: Hardcover or paperback?
I like both, but generally, I enjoy reading hardcover books better, because they are more durable, and they look prettier!
4: Favorite book?
What! How does anybody expect a reader to answer that?? There are so many…I’ll have to choose one from each genre! 🤣 Contemporary: uhhh…(this is already too hard!) probably one of Kasie West’s books! My favorite is either P.S. I Like You or By Your Side! Dystopian: no other dystopian can compare to The Hunger Games. Fantasy: probably An Ember in the Ashes series, or the Lord of the Rings series, which I just finished, after working on the series for a year. Both of those series are amazing! Historical fiction: Lovely War by Julie Berry, or any Ruta Sepetys book I’ve read!
5: Least favorite book?
I don’t really have a least favorite book. Most of my reads are pretty good!
6: Love triangles, yes or no?
Only if they are well-written. A lot of the love triangles I read are so annoying!
7: The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
I haven’t DNF’d any books recently. I always try to finish them once I start.
8: A book you’re currently reading?
I’m reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien! My brother and I are both reading it at the same time!
9: Last book you recommended to someone?
Uhh…I don’t really remember. I guess The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys, which I finished very recently! I recommended it to my sister, and to all of you guys in my spoiler-free book review I posted!
10: Oldest book you’ve read by publication date?
I’m not sure, but some of the Jane Austen books are pretty old. I really like her books! I’ve read Pride and Prejudice and Emma.
11: Newest book you’ve read by publication date?
I’m not really sure. I don’t feel like going through the books I’ve read and researching their publication dates right now, lol. 😄
12: Favorite author?
As I mentioned, Kasie West’s books are amazing! I think that they are such cute, fluffy, quick, contemporary novels! They are also really clean, which I appreciate! Ruta Sepetys is also an author whose books I love! I’ve read Between Shades of Gray, Salt to the Sea, and The Fountain of Silence. I am hoping to get her newest book, I Must Betray You, next time I go to the library!
13: Buying books or borrowing books?
I like to buy them better! When I borrow books, I always worry I’m going to ruin them somehow.
14: A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?
Maybe Sarah Dessen’s novels. They’re just not my faves. The Truth About Forever was okay, but I found the main character kind of annoying. The other books of hers I didn’t enjoy a lot either.
15: Bookmarks or dogears?
I usually use bookmarks, however (unlike my sister) I’m not totally against dogearing pages in books, and I occasionally do dogear pages in the book I’m reading if it’s my book!
16: A book you can always re-read?
The Hunger Games is a book that I can re-read over and over again (I actually just recently re-read it). I feel like I get something new out of it each time. What’s your favorite book in the series?
17: Can you read while listening to music?
I can, but I just don’t like it too much. I do have a lot of noisy siblings, and, I’m usually surrounded by noise when reading, so I’ve kind of adapted to reading with noise around.
18: One POV or multiple?
Like with the love triangle question, I like multiple points of view if they’re done well. A lot of the time, I forget who’s narrating with multiple points of view.
19: Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Multiple days. (Unless it’s a Kasie West book! 😁)
20: Who do you tag?
I’ll tag BetsyJane, Diamond, Isabelle, and Victoria! If any of y’all have already done this tag, or if you don’t want to do it, sorry! I just think that this is a really fun tag!
Thanks for reading, everyone! How would you have answered these questions? What’s your favorite book? (If you can choose one, lol!) Who’s your favorite author? What are your thoughts on bookmarks and dogears? I’d love to chat in the comments!
I’ll see all of you on Monday! Have a good rest of your week and a fun weekend! ❤
