I saw this book tag on @ A Little Haze Book Blog and it seemed like a fun tag so I decided to give it a try.
1. How many books are too many in a series?
I feel like 4 or 5 books are enough in a series otherwise you barely recognise the characters a-because they evolved so much and the plot drags on unnecessarily. However, if the writing is spectacular and you really get attached to the characters, I feel like you can have more books in a series. The perfect example of that would be Harry Potter where each book brings something to the grand finale in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
2. How do you feel about cliffhanger endings?
I have a love-hate relationship with them haha. If the next book is out then it’s fine but if I have to wait a year or so it makes me quite angry because I’m so impatient. It’s also a good sign and that means I’m invested in the plot enough to care!
3. Hardback or paperback?
My bank account says Paperback but my heart says Hardback.
4. Favourite book?
I say it all the time and by now you must know but it’s Just One Day by Gayle Forman. A must-read!
5. Least Favourite book?
I don’t remember reading such a terrible book that it’s my least favourite but I remember strongly disliking Paper Towns by John Green.
6. Love triangles: yes or no?
When I started reading YA, love triangles were my favourite trope (The Vampire Diaries, Twilight…). But as I grow older I’m not so fan of the idea…
7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
I avoid DNF’ing books because I get frustrated by myself and try to finish them even if they’re terrible. However I cannot get myself to pick up Jane Eyre, I don’t know why….I’m going to give it another try though.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
still reading Becoming by Michelle Obama and it’s just as incredible as I thought it would be! It’s taking me some time to read but I’m really enjoying it.
9. Last book you recommended?
It was the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout! It’s a great series, all the books are incredible, entertaining and gripping and it features a fellow bookworm and sexy aliens. What more do you need?
10. Oldest book you’ve read?
The oldest book I remember reading was The Witches by Roald Dahl. It was my favourite book growing up and I read it a billion times. It’s the oldest book I remeber loving and being obsessed with.
11. Newest book you’ve read?
The latest released book I read was The Beholder by Anna bright with the book box company FairyLoot. It was a readalong with the community and I really enjoyed reading the book with others and sharing our thoughts chapter by chapter! I wasn’t a fan of the book, it was not completely bad but just a big ol’ mess to be honest. You can see my review here.
12. Favourite author?
Gayle Forman! She’s my auto-buy author. I read almost all of her books and she NEVER disappointed me, n e v e r.
13. Buying books or borrowing?
With the number of books I’ve been buying lately, I can officially declare myself a bookaholic. I was in denial but my bank account does not lie haha. Borrowing books is nice too but the mt goal is to have a gigantic and dreamy library and collect books on my shelves.
14. A book that you disliked that everyone seems to love?
The first book in the Throne of Glass series by Srah J. Mass. I was sold by the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I thought I would love Throne of Glass just as much but I sadly didn’t. However, I purchased book 2 and book 3 in the series so I’ll keep you updated!
15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
Both? When it’s school books and to keep myself motivated I dog-ear my books to show progress and show where the next step in the book is. However, for my personal books, I prefer using bookmarks.
16. A book that you always reread?
I rarely reread books because there are so many more to discover! “So many books, so little time” as Frank Zappa would say.
17. Can you read while listening to music?
Absolutely not, and I don’t understand how people do it, to be honest. I wish I could listen to music but I get so easily distracted! And I love singing the lyrics so I can’t do both.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
If it’s well-done then I’m completely open to multiple POVs! Some authors do it so well and it’s so interesting to see how different characters view the same event and how it impacts the narrative. I’m a fan! Perfect examples of well-written multiple POVs are Six of Crows or The Princess and The Fangirl
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I’m such a slow reader, it’s embarrassing. Even books that can be read in one sitting take me extra days…I try to do marathons and challenges so it makes me read a bit quicker but I just can’t?
20. Who do you tag?
I tag anyone who wants to do it! If you do, please link your post in the comments so I can check it out! 🙂
Much love, Karla
