Hello, everyone! Today we’re doing the This or That Tag. The tag was originally created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I wanted to do this anyway.
Reading on the couch or reading on the bed?
The couch! I spend all of my day in my living room, which is also where my main bookshelf is. I don’t know why but I like reading by my bookshelf—it keeps me motivated.
Main character: Male or Female?
Oh, female 100%. I very rarely read books with male protagonists. I just don’t gel well with them more often than not.
Sweet or salty snacks while reading?
I’m sure this is the standard answer, but I don’t eat and read. If I absolutely had to for some strange reason, I’d probably go salty because I really, really enjoy Salt & Vinegar chips/crisps/whatever you call them.
Trilogies or quartets?
Uh, neither? I actually prefer standalones. Mostly because I’m the worst at continuing series. But if I had to pick, then trilogies because there’s a slight higher chance I’ll actually continue them.
First Person or Third Person POV?
I don’t have an opinion on this really. I think it depends on the book. When it comes to writing, I’m definitely a third person POV kind of gal though.
Night or morning reader?
Night. Firstly, I’m not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. But also it’s my way of calming down at night. It’s particularly great right now in Winter—I can curl up with the heater on and a sleepy cat.
Libraries or book stores?
Bookstores. I’m sorry. Bookstores.
I love libraries, don’t get me wrong. But even when I’m not getting books, there’s just something about bookstores. Maybe it’s because I worked in one for two and a half years, but they make me feel at home.
Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?
Oh, I love a good tearjerker. In fact, most (if not all) of my favourite books made me cry at some point. Maybe it’s because my sense of humour is much more in line with like dark, sarcastic British humour, but I don’t find most books that funny.
Black or White book covers?
I don’t know—I like both. For example, I think the Penguin Modern Classics editions look extremely classy with their white spines. Some of their covers are a bit dodgy, but those spines are real nice. But black covers also have a more dramatic look to them, you know?
Character driven or plot driven stories?
Oh boy. Uh. I think plot driven, but it depends on the book. If something has an interesting plot, I can usually keep going even if the characters are the worst. Why is this the question I’m struggling the most with?
