I was tagged by the lovely Lilly over at Lair of Books & I couldn’t be more excited to participate in this Book Blog Tag! If you haven’t visited Lily’s blog before than you should blog hop on over there to check out her awesome posts!!
Now on to the many book recommendations to fill your TBR piles!
1. How many books is too many books in a book series?
I think that 7 books is pushing it but if the series is brilliant than it’s worth it! For example, The Bone Season!! It’s a fantastic series but it’s taking forever in between release dates. I’m hoping that will change as it continues but we’re only on book three so it may be a while!
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I think it depends on how well the cliffhanger is done and how long I have to wait until the next installment. Lord of Shadows left me broken and I still have to wait until December to find out what happens! It’s agony!
3. Hardback or paperback?
I prefer hardback only because I feel like they are more durable. They are easier to transport when necessary as well. I tend to leave my books on the side of the couch so they can take a beating when the dogs are being crazy. I feel less anxious about leaving them there when they’ve got a nice hard cover to protect them!
4. Favorite book?
Oh my goodness! This one is a tough one to answer! If we’re talking about favorite book right now it would be Love & Gelato! It’s such an adorable book! Some of my others include The Night Circus and Scythe to name a few!
5. Least favorite book?
My least favorite book at the moment is The Bone Witch. I’m working my way through it for the second time. Although the world building is good and the concept is interesting, the pacing is so slow that I feel we haven’t learned enough about what is going on outside of the Willows of Ankyo. If it weren’t for the pace I think I’d really enjoy it.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
Depends on the book and the characters. 🙂
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti. I struggled with the main character a lot. I found the concept interesting but there were some themes that I didn’t really feel were necessary to the story.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
I’m currently reading…
Soulmated by Shaila Patel
Genesis by Brendan Reichs
Love Songs & Other Lies by Jessica Pennington
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
The last I recommended was Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller! I loved this duology so much! Who wouldn’t love a squashbuckling pirate book!!
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
Antipodesby Michele Bacon. It’s publication date is set for April 3, 2018! Just a few days away now!
12. Favorite author?
I have a few! Leigh Bardugo, Sarah J. Maas, and Cassandra Clare are top of my list! As far as book events go where I’ve been so lucky to talk to authors on a monthly basis I’d have to go with Nicola Yoon, Margaret Stohl, Kendare Blake, Rae Carson, and Katharine McGee!
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
Most of the books that I buy are for events so that they can be signed. The rest of my reading is for ARC’s that I get and then I listen to the rest on Scribd or Audible. I do use Overdrive now and then for library books but most seem to be on Scribd! I guess you could classify Scribd as borrowing since I just pay a monthly fee to have unlimited access to ebooks and audiobooks!
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas. I’m a huge Maas fan and love both of her series but ToD was a big disappointment. Let’s just say it should’ve stayed a novella because that 18 hour audio book I listened to was about 15 hours too long!
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks! Not only are they beautiful but they also keep my book pages from getting to too much damage. I pride myself in having good looking books!
16. A book you can always reread?
It’s sad to admit but I missed the Harry Potter train and didn’t start reading them until the last year, which I’m still not finished doing yet. I still have book 6 & 7.
I didn’t miss the Twilight train though! I love them so much and have re-read them more than a couple of times.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
I actually read while the t.v. is on all the time. My fiance loves his car shows so when he’s watching t.v. in the evenings I’m there next to him with a book in my hands!
18. One POV or multiple POV’s? (POV’s = Point of views)
I love multiple POV’s because I feel like you get so much more out of the story but sometimes if you have too many it can be confusing.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I read them in multiple days. I do have a bit of ADD so I tend to get distracted easily. This is also why it’s easier for me to read when there is some sort of noise in the background either the t.v. or music.
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
This question is probably the most difficult because I read books because of their covers! I don’t read synopsis when I see books. Recommendations always help but 98% of the time it’s the cover that draws me in!
