Another day, another tag. And, like usual, Virginia tagged me in this! I think we have a mutual tagging thing going and I’m here for it. But, I love these questions and I’m glad to be doing this!
How many books are too many in a series?
Personally, anything over four books is a bit too much for me. It really depends on the book series, but I don’t want a million books in each series. It gets tiring.
How do you feel about cliff-hangers?
I’m fine with them. You gotta keep an audience hooked and waiting somehow, after all. Plus, if I know it’s a series, I expect a cliff-hanger.
Hardback or paperback?
Hardback! I’ll read paperbacks, but I prefer hardbacks. They’re sturdier and all around easier to handle. Plus, I always break the spins of paperbacks and that gets annoying.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman! Literally my favorite book of all time. And the audiobook is the best way to absorb it, imho.
Least favorite book?
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab is the book I bitch about the most. This whole series, really. It just sucked.
Love Triangle… Yes or No?
I’d prefer not to have it. Some are good, some are bad. But, I think they’re overrated. I’d far prefer to have a “love triangle” of polyamory.
The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
This was too much like ADSoM for me. In all the bad ways.
A book you’re currently reading?
Bryn Greenwood is a local author for me and I started an ARC of her newest book. Gonna be a good one!
The last book you recommended to someone?
This one! It’s not perfect, but I’m really enjoying it. Definitely one I’d recommend!
Oldest book you’ve read (based on publication date)?
According to Goodreads, this was published in -2100. And it’s the oldest book I’ve read.
Newest book you’ve read (based on publication date)?
This one was slated to be released in 2020, but now it’s going to be released in 2021. So, that makes this the newest book I’ve read. (My review.)
Do I have to choose one?? Because I love so many! Shakespeare, Mackenzi Lee, Mark Lawrence, Stephen King, etc.
Buying books or borrowing them?
Some books I want to buy. Some I want to borrow. To save money, I usually borrow first if needed.
A book you dislike that everyone else loves?
SO. MANY. But I’ll go with this one.
I DNFed it and yeah. Couldn’t get into it. (My review.)
Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks, although I dog-ear books I own when I need to mark a quote or specific place. It is the way it is.
A book you can reread over and over?
Uhm, American Gods. I can reread it multiple times a year.
Can you read while listening to music?
Yep! I love listening to music to set the mood. Makes the books richer for me.
Multiple POVs or one POV?
Hm. I prefer single POVs. Makes it simpler. But, some books need multiple POVs.
Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days on average?
Both! Sometimes I can read a book all in one sitting and others I read over multiple days. It’s pretty equal for me.
I tag: (and no pressure to do it!)
What about you?
What’s your least favorite book? Can you listen to music?
