Good morning everyone!!
Before I get to the book tag I just wanted to let you know that I’m going to be on vacation for the rest of the week and since I’m not as prepared and awesome as some of you (you know who you are!!) I do not have blog posts written or prepared for the time I’m away. So you won’t see any new content for me until next Monday when I’ve returned. Sorry!!
Maybe one day I can get ahead and have posts prepared more than 3 hours in advance of when I publish 🙂 hahaha…..
But don’t despair! I will still have my phone and I will still obsessively stalk YOUR content so you won’t forget about me or miss me too much I hope 🙂
So onto the book tag!!
I’ve been tagged by the magnificent Marina @ Books of Magic for this fun “This or That” questionnaire tag! Thank you so much for the shout out and thinking of me for this! You know I love a good book tag 😀
READING ON THE BED OR THE COUCH?
I definitely read on the couch or in my rocking chair, or more recently at my desk while I’m “working.” If I read in my bed, I’ll fall asleep. I’m one of those strange people who pretty much just use my bed for sleeping. If I try to do anything like watch TV or read or even work on my laptop in bed, I just end up napping for the rest of the afternoon.
MALE MAIN CHARACTER OR FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER?
I guess I prefer female characters but I don’t care as long as the character is interesting. I’ve been really enjoying books that have a multiple POVs and generally one or more of them are male. This way we get a little of both.
My preference for female likely stems from the fact that I read a lot more stories written by females than males & they generally write more from the female perspective.
SWEET SNACKS OR SALTY SNACKS WHEN YOU’RE READING?
I don’t really like snacking when I’m reading because I’m uber paranoid about getting food crumbs in my books. 😦
I like goldfish crackers too much though so if I’m reading from my tablet or Kindle, I very might be snacking on those. SALTY!!
TRILOGIES OR QUARTETS?
This is a silly question, right?! Does the story need a forth book or are the author and publisher just trying to make more $$$?? See how cynical I’m getting now?? Hahaha. I really don’t have a preference but if the story starts to lag after the second or third book, I probably won’t continue the series if they make a forth (I’m looking at you, Red Queen).
FIRST PERSON POV OR THIRD PERSON POV?
I really, really don’t think it matters. Voice is much more important. I trust my authors to pick the POV that makes the most sense for their story.
READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?
Definitely at night. After the baby goes to sleep. That’s when I get my best uninterrupted reading done 🙂
LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?
Aside from ARCs, I get nearly ALL of the rest of my books from the library. I generally don’t buy more than a dozen books a year. So I guess library. But I LOVE going to bookstores and browsing. I could do that for hours and hours.
BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR CRY?
I can’t decide!! I guess I’d rather read more books that make me laugh because that would just cheer me up. But some of the best books are sad. I just wouldn’t want to read sad books all the time.
BLACK BOOK COVERS OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?
I’d probably get the white ones dirty.
CHARACTER DRIVEN OR PLOT DRIVEN
Character driven! The best plot in the world get get ruined horribly by bad characters. I would much rather read about truly great characters.
