I’m still catching up on those millions of tags I got when I was on hiatus, so since I’m not quite back into the swing of things (I completely missed a post last week??) I’m going to give you a nice, quick, 20 Questions book tag (thanks to Jen, I’m fairly sure, for the tag)
So, uh, let’s go.
20 Questions Book Tag
- How many books are too many in a series?
Personally, once a series has gone over seven books, I’m unlikely to continue reading. Four books is my sweet spot, but I can do a little longer if I really like the characters/plot, but over seven I just get fed up.
- How do you feel about cliffhanger endings?
Not a fan really. I like each book to be able to stand on it’s own. Besides, who likes waiting a whole year for another book when the last book ended on a cliffhanger?
- Hardback or paperback?
Realistically, paperbacks are half the price. But…hardbacks are so much prettier.
- Favourite book?
The Lord of the Rings (answer assertively and no one will see the hesitation).
- Least favourite book?
There’s so many I hate…how do I choose? Well, I really disliked The Fault in Our Stars, but I wouldn’t say it was my absolute least favourite book.
- Love triangles: yes or no?
No (*ignores the fact that I have a love triangle in my own novel*)
- The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon. I’m sorry I just really, really couldn’t read it.
- A book you’re currently reading?
For some reason, I’m reading like twelve books all at once, so I’ll just pick Taliesin by Stephen Lawhead and The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
- Last book you recommended?
The last book I gifted to someone was A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes, so I think that’s a pretty strong recommendation.
- Oldest book you’ve read?
- Newest book you’ve read?
Fawkes by Nadine Brandes
- Favourite author?
Tolkien and Dickens can fight to the death for the honour
- Buying books or borrowing?
Borrowing. I usually only buy if they’re really cheap or absolute favourites.
- A book you disliked that everyone seems to love?
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (not to be confused with the aforementioned Olivia Twist). Everyone hails it as Dickens’ greatest work, but I honestly thought it was weak and boring. Nancy was the best though. Go Nancy.
- Bookmarks or dog ears?
How is this a question? I’m reporting you.
- A book you can always reread?
Have a list:
The Magician’s Daughter by Justyn Walker
The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Can you read while listening to music?
I can do many things. I’m very talented.
- One POV or multiple POVs?
Multiple, if I like the characters equally. Since that doesn’t happen very much, I tend to prefer single point of views.
- Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I read Les Miserables in one sitting, but usually over several days. 😉 Okay, that’s a complete lie. Usually with books, it’s more like…over several weeks, but anyway.
- Who do you tag?
All those who wish they could read a book in a single sitting.
