Firstly, thank you Rebekah for tagging me for this. 😀
- Read only series or stand alone? I find that, when I get really into a book, and then suddenly it’s over, I’d love there to be a sequel (though sometimes it ruins the whole thing!) but I do mostly read stand-alone books. I love series too though, like Uglies and Chaos Walking.
- Read only female or male authors?
My favourite authors are actually males, though I do like a lot of books written by females. In Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, he was a male writing but he got inside the mind of a female, and I think it worked wonderful. I don’t have a specific preference of gender, though my favourite authors just happen to be male.
- Shop at Barnes and Noble/Waterstones or Amazon?
I actually edited this question because, over here in the UK, our Barnes and Noble is Waterstones. So, I just added that on. Whilst I love the smell of books, and will quite happily go to Waterstones if I’m already out, sometimes Amazon is just so much more convenient. It’s just ready whenever you are. I do get books from Waterstones every once in a while, and that’s more instant, which is nice.
- All books become movies or TV shows?
I don’t really have a preference! TV shows are good sometimes because they last longer, I suppose? By that, I mean, you get the anticipation of each week’s episode. On the other hand, movies are lovely to just get some popcorn out and chill in front of.
- Read 5 pages per day or 5 books a week?
It used to be a book or two a week but now I’ve kinda not been reading for a while. I don’t know why, to be honest. Just haven’t been in a reading mood. Hopefully I will read more again soon.
- Be a professional reviewer or author?
Author, definitely. That’s been my dream since I was about eight. I mean, I’ve been writing my whole life, but I didn’t consider my career path until I was eight. At first, I thought it would be super easy. Just, you know, go publish a book. I know it’s a lot harder than that now. I’m not eight anymore. I’m not the best reviewer in the world; my reviews tend to be brief. I’d just love to be an author.
- Only read your top 20 favourite books over and over, or always read new ones? Whilst reading your favourite books again is a nice reminder, I think reading new books is a really nice thing to do and it definitely can help you find new authors or genres that you like.
- Be a librarian or a bookseller?
Maybe being a librarian? I think there are more books in libraries that can be about really random things and sometimes I just go to a library, pick out a random book, and just read it there and then. I mean, bookshops are lovely, but they aren’t as random with the books they have, in my experience. I don’t know. Random is cool. Also, at libraries, you’re allowed to read there, whereas you have to actually buy the books at bookstores.
- Only read your favourite genre or every genre but your favourite? Well, I don’t have a favourite genre. I just like any book that is good! I read all varieties of books, to be honest. I don’t even just stick with YA; I read adult books a lot too! My mum usually has some good suggestions for me. So, I suppose, then, I would go with every genre but my favourite, because I don’t have a favourite genre! Science-fiction is awesome, but so is realism, and they’re kinda at opposite ends of the scale.
- Only read physical books or e-books?
Physical books. I have tried reading e-books in the past, and I just can’t get into them! Plus, the smell of physical books is amazing.
I tag: My Mind Speaks Aloud and A New Chapter — and anyone else who wants to join in, feel free 😛
Thanks again to Rebekah, and thanks to everyone who’s read this! 🙂
