1. How many books is too many books in a book series?
I think if a series is a continuation of a story rather than variations of the same story, it can be as long as it needs to be. For example, Outlander vs. Nancy Drew. I could read about the adventures of Jamie and Claire forever, but there’s only so much mystery solving I can do with Nancy Drew. And Dr. Suess.
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I hate them! It’s so unfair when you’re left on a cliffhanger and the next book isn’t out yet and you have to wait God knows how long for the next book. (And if the author is George R.R. Martin, he’ll probably die before he releases the next one tbh.) This also applies to TV series, especially when you’re left on a cliffhanger and the show ISN’T RENEWED FOR ANOTHER SEASON. *cough*Timeless*cough*
3. Hardback or paperback?
Hardback looks better on my bookshelf. I’ve actually been reading on my Kindle for so many years that I prefer to read things there rather than from an actual book. Please form your angry mob in an orderly manner and wait behind the velvet ropes until the signal.
4. Favorite book?
This is a rude question. ALL of them.
5. Least favorite book?
This is also a rude question.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
No please make it stop I’m VERY TIRED. I can barely keep one man happy, how am I supposed to believe that someone can keep TWO happy? Lies.
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
The Residence by Kate Anderson Bower. This wasn’t an intentional “lulz didn’t read” so much as a “I’m tired of politics and politicians and I need a break from America why did I choose to read this” didn’t read. I’ll probably come back to it eventually, but I need more escapism in my life at the moment.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. So far, it’s been told entirely in letters and I’ve been skimming a little bit. Hopefully it picks up because I really want to watch the Netflix movie when I finish!
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Beneath a Scarlett Sky by Mark Sullivan. It’s not the best written book I’ve ever read, but the story is fantastic. Also, it’s going to be made into either a film or a limited TV series, I’ve heard both and the only thing I’m sure of is that Tom Holland is playing the lead. Read it before it comes out!!
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte, published in 1848. I’m sure I’ve read something older but that’s the first that came to mind.
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
Beautiful Exiles by Meg Waite Clayton, I think it came out last month or this month??? IDK, I got it from Kindle First to Read a bit ago.
12. Favorite author?
J.K. Rowling, for more reasons than just what she’s written. She’s also a fantastic human.
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
Buying because I’m a hoarder and my dream is to be buried alive by literature and having to be excavated out of my own home.
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
I can’t think of anything I’ve read lately that I hated but everyone seems to like.
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks fall out and dog ears are destructive.
16. A book you can always reread?
Harry Potter because #always
17. Can you read while hearing music?
No, I can read with other background noise like a jackhammer or controlled explosions, but music is very distracting.
18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
ONE POV because my tiny brain can’t handle it. Just kidding. Kind of.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I’ve done both. It depends on what I have time for.
20. Who do you tag? (You can invite them to the group to do the tag)
