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?
Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?
Book to movie.
Series or standalone?
Everyone who hasn’t yet done this tag!
I hope that was rapid fiery enough! Until next time – have a wonderfully bookish day!!
