This or That Book Tag

I love book tags! While they have certain topics, they allow me to ramble on about different books, from YA to classics. I also feel that you get more interaction with your readers as they can agree or disagree with you. And they`re super fun to write. When I read a lot, I`m not always in the mood to write longs posts (doing the read-a-thon at the moment). Granted, I have more material to review, but I don`t always feel like doing that. It might not make any sense, but that`s me. I get easily distracted and I can never talk about just one subject. And I have no idea how to introduce this tag, so let`s get down to business. This tag was originally created by Ayunda at Tea&Paperbacks, but I`ve seen it on so many blogs lately. I don`t know if someone actually has to tag you for it, but details.

READING ON THE COUCH OR IN BED?
I prefer reading in bed. Or if the weather is nice, outside in the garden. The couch is too close to the fridge, which has food inside. And I can`t focus when I think about snacks.


 MALE MAIN CHARACTER OR FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER?
I know that lately, most YA fantasy books have women as main characters. And some have a problem with that. Which is bonkers because for years the Chosen Ones were only males. While it can get repetitive reading about the same type of heroines, I still enjoy a female POV. I just wish that some authors would forget about the Mary Sue types and gives flawed, real women. Who are not just strong or beautiful, but smart and multi-dimensional.

SWEET SNACKS OR SALTY SNACKS WHILE READING?
I love eating, but let`s not mix it with reading. Because I`m a klutz and I don`t want to see ketchup on my limited edition of "To Kill A Mockingbird".

FIRST PERSON POV OR THIRD PERSON POV?
First person POV all the way! Unless they are boring or annoying. But since I gravitate towards anti-heroes, I want to know what goes on in their mind.


BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU CRY?

I like sad books and I cannot lie! I like having my heart broken and feeling sorry for myself. Except in the summer. Then I want all the funny books I can get. Because crying at the pool will ruin my SPF and I don`t want to look like I zebra. And yes, in case you were wondering, I have a dramatic cry.

READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?
At night I watch Netflix with my husband (the only precious moments he gets me away from my books). I enjoy reading in the morning, after a big coffee and some cinnamon porridge.

LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?
I prefer bookstores, especially the independent and quiet ones, where you can read in peace.

BLACK BOOK COVERS OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?

I think there`s something aesthetically appealing about white books. Granted, you must protect them with your life so they don`t get dirty, but sacrifice is part of a bookworm`s life.

CHARACTER-DRIVEN OR PLOT-DRIVEN STORIES?
How is that even a question? Character-driven books, of course. I like to invest in my characters, so it`s nice to see their evolution.


What about you? Do you share my opinions or completely disagree? Let me know in the comments and don`t forget to leave your blog links so I can check them out.

  1. I also like reading in bed. That’s pretty much the only place I read. I prefer character-driven books, too.

  2. I can't actually remember the last time I read a book - how bad is that! I think the last one I read was Girl on the Train and I was utterly hooked on that - it's a shame the film was so naff! xx

    1. Emily Blunt did a fantastic job, but the movie was quite disappointing.

  4. I think I have the same copy of the mockingbird, the 50th anniversary one? I couldn't eat and read at the same time too, I'm so messy haha! I prefer bookshops more too now, libraries aren't the same any more - they have a real lack of good books too nowadays! x

    1. I have 5 copies, but I believe the one you`re talking about is the 50th anniversary one. I know I should support libraries more, but like you said, they`re really lacking in content.
