Rapid Fire #BookTag

I’ve been tagged to do this one by a few of my fellow bloggers, most recently by Jo @ Jo’s Book Blog. Thank you all for tagging me, and apologies it’s taken me so long to get around to it. Interestingly, I’ve seen some detailed answers to these questions but Jo raised a very good point – the title of this tag is Rapid Fire so my answers should be short and sweet, preferably the first response that comes into my head after reading the question. So lets get right to it….

eBooks or physical books?

Physical (but I got mad love for my Kindle.)

Paperback or hardback?

Paperback when reading, hardback looks prettier on the shelf.

Online or in-store shopping?


Trilogies or series?


Heroes or villains?

Villains! (I also love a good anti-hero)

A book you want everyone to read.

Deep Down Dead by Steph Broadribb

Recommend an underrated book.

False Hearts by Laura Lam

The last book you finished.

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

Weirdest thing you’ve used as a book mark.

Errmm, why wouldn’t you use a bookmark!? I’ve got plenty, if you need one, let me know!

Used books – yes or no?

Yes, but they must be in really good condition.

Top three favourite genres?

Crime Fiction (and all its sub-genres)

Historical Fiction (especially when it involves a murder)


Borrow or Buy?

Both, but mainly buy.

Characters or plot?

Oooo, you caught me out with that one. I’d say both, but if one is weak and the other is strong, it can still work.

Short or long book?


Long or short chapters?


Name the first three books you think of.

A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell

Cursed by Thomas Enger

Kill the Father by Sandrone Dazieri

Books that make you laugh or cry?

Laugh (dark humour/black comedy)

Our world or fictional worlds?

Our world

Do you ever judge a book by its cover?


Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?

Book to movie.

Series or standalone?


I tag:

Everyone who hasn’t yet done this tag!

I hope that was rapid fiery enough! Until next time – have a wonderfully bookish day!!

    1. Not at all, do it, I’d love to see your answers! I never know who to tag in these because I don’t know how busy people’s blogging schedules are so please, do it! I officially tag you!xx


    1. Haha, when I first looked at this tag, I had paragraphs to write but once I read Jo’s tag, I thought hmm, rapid, let’s do it this way. Plus I’d just written 3 book reviews before typing this so I was pretty much burnt out!

    1. Funnily enough, I was having a discussion in Waterstones, with my brother, about best book opening lines. I asked a member of staff and he said he thought A Judgement in Stone and thats I should read it because it’s really good and his all-time fav book, that’s how I ended up reading it and now it’s one of my favourite books of all time too!


  1. Hey I would love to do this (with due credit to your blog)- would that be ok?
    I loved your answers as they so so resonated with mine, more or less.
