BOOK TAG – This or That

Today I’m bringing you another book tag. I wanted to be bringing you another review today, but while my migraine has died down a bit since the heat died down a bit, the ability to concentrate and think has not really come back. Consequently, I haven’t been able to concentrate much on reading or writing.

Since I didn’t want to go too long in between blog posts, I figured a book tag post would be a good way to post without having to worry about too much concentration!

“This Or That”

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!

 

I wasn’t particularly tagged, but I know that Jay over at this-is-my-truth-now has done this tag in the past and said for anyone who wants to do it to do it.

 

1) Reading on the couch or on the bed?

Usually on the couch. I’m not as young as I used to be and my back doesn’t like it when I’m lying down and reading. Plus my bed isn’t that comfortable for sitting on, even when propped up with pillows.

 


2) Male or female main character?

Either is fine with me. Many of the books I read seem to have female characters, but I have nothing against male characters.


3) Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Salty – most definitely salty. Usually popcorn or Chex mix.


4) Trilogies or Quartets?

Ummm. I’ve read more trilogies so I’m going to say trilogies. The few quartets that I’ve read, I’ve enjoyed, I just haven’t read very many. On the other hand, I’ve read many, many trilogies and I enjoy them a lot.


5) First or Third person POV?

I actually prefer third person POV. When it’s a first person POV, half the time I forget the character’s name and then when someone calls their name, I have no idea who they’re talking about!


6) Reading at night or in the morning?

Umm… all of the above and everywhere in between. I’m almost always reading. It’s my number one hobby. Yes, I paint ceramics, take nature photography, have a water garden, and make other art, but reading is my number one hobby so I’m almost always reading, no matter what time of day it is.


7) Libraries or bookstores?

Both. I know, I’m supposed to choose between them, but for me, each has its uses and value to me. I no longer buy books unless I know I’m going to read them more than once or use them frequently. If it’s a favorite author, I’ll pre-order the new book from one of my favorite independent bookstores in town.

If it’s not a book that I’m going to read over and over again or use frequently, I make good use of the library that I work for and the inter-library loan services that are available to me.


8) Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

Books that make me laugh. I think that’s why I like cozy mysteries so much. They usually make me laugh instead of cry. I don’t mind a good book that makes me cry, but I will generally choose books that make me laugh.


9) Black or white covers?

Neither. I prefer colorful covers. 🙂 If it’s too monochrome, I’m not as drawn to it.


10) Character or plot driven stories?

Character driven. I prefer those much more. I can handle a not-so-great plot as long as the characters are great, but if the characters are bad, it doesn’t matter how good the plot is, I’m still not going to enjoy the book.

 

I’m not tagging anyone in particular. If you want to tag yourself – go for it. 🙂 It’s always fun getting to know other bloggers!

  1. Lovely answers to this tag! But before anything, I’m sorry to hear you’ve been having headaches and I do hope you’re feeling a bit better now ❤
    I'm much more into character-driven stories as well, these are my favorite kind of books for sure ❤ And I think I am more drawn to colorful covers just as well 🙂

      1. Thanks! My appt. is tomorrow morning so we’ll see what they say. It’s a new doctor so we’ll see. They may want me to do all the testing again (even tho’ I’ve had it all done multiple times in my life :P). I kind of hope not, but we’ll see.

  2. This is such a fun post idea! I’m with you on the character vs. plot driven stories; I mUCH prefer character driven because they’re often what draw me in! I also rarely buy books if I haven’t read them, but it’s so fun to buy a book you fell in love with and know you can read it again and again!

    1. Lenna – It IS fun to buy one to read again and again. I’m currently re-reading two books (one physical and one eBook) on top of the book I’m reading for Sunday’s review post. I love re-reading when life is otherwise stressful. 🙂

    1. Jay,

      It was a fun tag to do! 🙂 Yes, I’m feeling better, thanks. Migraines ARE awful. Thankfully, I do not get them as much as I did as a kid, but they’re still horrid. Thanks for the feedback on #5. I can do the first-person, it’s just definitely not my favorite.
