Tags & Awards

This or That Tag

April is the month I catch up with all I’ve left behind, starting with tags! I was nominated by the banana-good Orang-Utan Librarian, thank you! ❤

The Rules:

  • Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  • Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
  • Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!

One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?
I have an awesome couch that I love with all my heart. It has an armrest that I use as my desk, there is always a stack of books, my notebook and a tea mug on it, it’s my favorite reading nook. I only read in bed when insomnia strikes, which is more often that I’d like.

Two: Male main character or female main character?
I tend to connect better with female main characters.

Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
Sweet, sweet, sweet all the way. I’ll only make an exception for pistachios. Or Lays salted chips.

Four: Trilogies or quartets?
I’m not fond of series but I have a feeling trilogies do better. 3 is the right number.

Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?
Ouch, hard to say. I love to sneak in a character’s mind the way the first person point of view allows you to (Sociopath club member) but it has to be extremely well-written to work. Also, your scope is limited as you only get to follow the main character. But a third person point of views might be confusing when there are too many characters. If I had to choose (which is the case for that question duh!) I’d say I love third person pov focusing on a single character.

Six: Reading at night or in the morning?
I love reading at night but I don’t really have much time, and I’m working afternoon shifts which means I get all my mornings free. I’ll have to say in the morning, at least for now.

Seven: Libraries or bookstores?
I love bookstores but I always end up frustrated because of my tight book budget so I’ll go with libraries, even though I hate bringing back a book I fell in love with.

Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
There are so many reasons to cry that I choose laughter whenever possible! (That sounds pessimistic and depressive, I swear I’m fine 😀 )

Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?
White covers look good on my bookshelf!

Ten: Character driven or plot driven stories?
What is that question? Torture? Hmmmmm. A good plot supported by weak characters will bore me, I need authentic three-dimensional characters to enjoy any story so… character driven it is!

I’m tagging:

  1. Thanks for tagging me. I always like to read people’s answers on these tags. Its a great way to find out about the bookish blogger. Some quite difficult decisions there though, mmm libraries or bookstores??? Can I say both!

    1. You’re welcome 🙂 I love tags because it allows us to know more about each other and find common grounds or sometimes look at things in a different way. This one is quite tough indeed, I had trouble with some of the answers! Have fun doing it!

  2. Nice post! I’ll definitely do this one. I love book tags. I agree with you on trilogies. Sometimes, I think four is too many and the author just throws that one boring book in there to make money. I was going to use Twilight as an example, but I think that probably applies to the entire series as a whole. All of my favorite series, with the exception of Harry Potter, are trilogies.

    1. Exactly, books are the perfect escape from life and its issues, so I’d rather avoid books most likely to make me cry. You’re welcome 🙂 I can’t wait to read your answers!

  3. “I love bookstores but I always end up frustrated because of my tight book budget so I’ll go with libraries, even though I hate bringing back a book I fell in love with.”

    Exactly this! As lovely as it is to wander through bookstores, I only feel comfortable buying books I already know I love. But walking out of a library with a stack of books (for free!) is the best feeling.

    “There are so many reasons to cry that I choose laughter whenever possible!”

    That’s for sure. =)

    Great list!
