The Rapid Fire Book Tag
I saw this tag completed by Natalie the Biblioholic and couldn’t resist, so here goes!
eBook or physical books? At this point in my life, eBook. I can literally carry hundreds of books with me on one small device – perfect for a fast reader like me!
Paperback or hardcover? Hardcover . . .paperback the spines get worn too easily.
Online or in-store book shopping? Amazon has made book shopping so easy, but there is something about searching through a bookstore for an unexpected treasure. I also love an independently owned bookstore that has its own class and charm . . . where you never know what you may find!
Trilogies or series? Both are great, but if I am in love with the characters and the plat stays fresh with each book, I will take as many books in a series as I can get!
Heroes or villains? Love a hero that can come in and save the day . . . however, I love a reformed bad boy as well, so don’t know if that counts as a villain?
A book you want everyone to read? Ugh – just one? Really? Sterling, by Dannika Dark . . . and, yo will be hooked enough to read the rest of the Mageri Series!
Recommend an underrated book? My Familiar Stranger, by Victoria Danann. A very kick ass heroine that ends up very far from home and a secret group of vampire hunters protecting those who don’t even know they need protecting.
The last book you finished? Handling Haven by Samantha A. Cole . . . so good!
The last book you bought? HA! Well, you all caught me after I was at an author signing event, so I came home with a ridiculous haul of signed books!!!!!
Weirdest thing you’ve ever used as a bookmark? Probably a tissue – not used of course!
Used books: yes or no? As long as they are in good condition, you can find some great and affordable reads! I can’t stand writing or highlighting in a book, though, so I check first.
Three favorite genres? Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense, Historical Romance
Borrow or buy? I tend to buy – I love a great re-read . . . however I have borrowed using Kindle Unlimited.
Characters or plot? Both are important in order for a book to be great! However, the characters need to be well written and developed in order to be able to enjoy a plot. If I can’t connect with the characters, I really don’t carer what happens to them.
Long or short books? Long! Longer is almost always better when I am loving a book!
Long or short chapters? It all depends on the author’s writing style . . .
Name the first 3 books you think of. Bwahahahaha – like I only have three books running through my head!
Books that made you laugh or cry? I prefer romantic comedy to a book that causes an ugly cry.
Our world or fictional worlds? I love both and tend to switch back and forth depending on my mood. I guess I can compromise and say I love a bit of a paranormal element in our world?
Audiobooks: yes or no? I have never listened to an audiobook . . . .
Do you ever judge a book by it’s cover? Of course, I think everyone does . . .it’s what can cause me to one-click through to Amazon to see the synopsis.
Book to movie or TV adaptations? I think a tv adaptation or mini-series gives more time to include more details that have to be left out of a two hour movie.
Movie/TV show you preferred to this book? Honestly, none. The book is always better to me and typically leads to disappointment when I have read first and then watched the movie.
Series or standalones? Both can be phenomenal, but I tend to enjoy sinking my teeth into a series . . .being able to binge read an entire series is one of my favorite things!
Thanks for reading! I challenge anyone who reads to play along as well! It’s a quick and easy tag to complete, and I’d love to see your answers!
