Okay, this is evidently going around the blogging world for all of us book nerds and I wanted to jump in on the fun…so thank you Galit for sharing it! Obviously it’s one of those tag post, but no one ever tags me in anything, so I am tagging myself and…well if you want to do it, tag yourself too. We can’t wait around for people to do things for us. We have to take what we want. And that is my life lesson for the day. lol
Read only trilogies or stand alones?
Trilogies. I already do this for the most part. I can’t remember the last time I read a standalone novel. There isn’t many of them anymore because everyone wants to keep the story alive.
Read only female or male authors?
This is a hard one! I have read a great many books by wonderful male authors, but it seems the ones that I love the most are by female authors. And as most you of you know, my all time favorite author is Stephen King….Do I have to pick!? Okay, okay, if I have to pick I would go with male authors. I mean…Stephen King. Not to mention Jim Butcher, Rick Yancey, Jonathan Maberry, and Dean Koontz.
Shop at bookshops or online?
Bookshops all the way! I love going into a book store and browsing. It always feels me with such joy. Also, when you find a book you want to read you can take it home that day and don’t have to wait for it to ship to your house. There is also a bond you have with others in the book store with you. You are all lovers of reading. And I secretly dream of meeting my soul mate in a bookstore one day and bonding over a favorite book. lol
All books become movies or T.V. shows?
T.V. shows! Movies are great, but T.V. shows could really dig into the details of the book and nothing would have to be left out. Also, if it’s a trilogy or series of novels, there is so much to work with for a T.V. Show. Look at Vampire Diaries and True Blood. Both of them deterred away from original story, which is when the shows went down hill, but the first few seasons were fantastic.
**Side note: I hate Nina Dobrev for leaving The Vampire Diaries. UGH!!! Elena and Damon were supposed to be together forever!
Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
5 books a week, no questions. If I could read that many books a week now, I would do it in a heartbeat!
Be a professional reviewer or author?
At this moment…reviewer. I am having some major doubts about my own writing, but I am sure in a week or two I would pick author. I just need to get back to writing.
Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
New ones. This is basically how I read now. I hardly ever re-read a book. I just can’t get excited about them when I know what happens already. That being said, there are some books that I forgot details and will re-read. Like Cinder and The 5th Wave. One I have already re-read and the other is on my TBR pile.
Be a librarian or bookseller?
Bookseller! I would love to have my own book store and book authors to come do signings. I have actually dreamed of my own bookstore for years.
Only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
Favorite Genre. I tend to get bored with other genres. Though…I do like a few other genres. As long as there is some kind of fantasy aspect of it, I’m in.
Only read physical books or eBooks?
Physical books. I love holding a real book in my hand. I am not against eBooks and I have read several of them and have more waiting to be read. An eReader is great for so many things, but given the choice I would take a physical book.
There you go. My Would You Rather: Book Nerd Style. So…what are you waiting for? It’s your turn!
