Hey guys! It’s been a while since I last did a book tag, and I was tagged for this one by my bookish partner-in-crime, Hannah (if you recognise the name, she’s the one who goes with me to YALC every year), who has just started a blog, it’s called Books, Life and Other Oddities and you should definitely check it out, because if you like my blog then Hannah and I have very similar tastes in books and she’s been one of my best friends for eight years, so it would be great if you guys could support her blog! Here’s the link if you want to go visit it:
So anyway, on with the tag:
Reading in bed or on the couch?
In bed. Honestly, if I didn’t have to, I would pretty much never leave my bed, I do most of my reading in bed, pretty much all my writing in bed, Uni assignments, everything.
Male or female main character?
Female, because I think most of my favourite characters are girls, but I do think there should be more male narrators in YA, as they’re really hard to find!
Sweet or salty snacks while reading?
Neither, I don’t eat whilst reading, I’d rather my books didn’t get all crumby!
Trilogies or quartets?
I’m gonna go with quartets because I’ve been burned by a lot of trilogies! I’ve only read a few quartets but none of them have let me down in quite the same way that a lot of trilogies have.
Reading first person or third person POV?
First person, I feel like the character’s voice comes across a lot better!
Reading at night or in the morning?
At night, I’ve always done most of my reading before I go to bed, though often I do both.
Libraries or bookstores?
I love both, but I’ll have to say bookstores, as I love not having a return date on books, I don’t feel so much pressure to have to get to something right away if it’s something I’ve bought. Plus bookstores generally have a better selection of what I want.
Books that make you laugh or cry?
Laugh! I do love a good dose of humour in my books.
Black book covers or white book covers?
Black, I think they’re more striking.
Character driven or plot driven?
Plot driven. The characters do have to be well rounded of course, but you can have the greatest characters in the world, but if they’re not doing anything, then I will not care.
So there we go! If you want to do this tag then consider yourself tagged as I can never keep track of who has done what, I can barely keep track of my own tags! And go check out Hannah’s blog 🙂
