I love books. And now I found a tag about books. So I stole it from R. M. Archer. 😁 (Thanks, by the way! I liked your post so I thought I’d… steal it. Yep, sorry. 😉)
Anyway, you can find Archer’s blog up at the link up there 👆. Her blog is really cool, especially if you’re a young writer looking for tips!
Well, let’s begin with the questions!
1. How many books are too many in a series?
Hmm, I’d say about ten. After that, it just starts to feel like the same thing over and over again. And I agree with Archer, if there’s character development and things are changing, then really, I could read forever. Maybe.
2. How do you feel about cliff-hangers?
*groans* After finishing a book with a cliffhanger I go and explain the whole thing to my brother. Our conversation normally ends up looking like this:
3. Hardcover or paperback?
I love both. You know those old, rustic hardcover classics? Those are amazing. But then fantasy and contemporary and everything else should be paperback.
4. Favourite book?
*scans Goodreads shelf twice* Charlie Wilcox by Shanon E. Mckay or Our Only May Amelia by Jennifer L. Holme. There are tons of others but those make the top. 😉 Oh yeah, or Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen.
5. Least favourite book?
What Hearts by Bruce Brooks is definitely one of them. I read it when I was like twelve but didn’t understand the unspoken messages or something, because it didn’t make sense and seemed absolutely pointless.
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
They can be fun, but sometimes a little cliche.
7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
Princess Academy; Palace of Stone, by Shannon Hale. Only because I borrow the audiobook, and instead of one person reading it, there was a narrator and then everyone had a different voice. But there were no sound effects, so it wasn’t a drama. Anyway, I just found it hard to follow along because characters were constantly changing.
8. A book you are currently reading?
United We Stand by Eric Walters. I found it at a second-hand store. It takes place on September 12th, 2001. It’s super interesting, but I’m hesitant to read it because I don’t know if it’s clean.
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
Haha, yesterday I recommended Flipped to my friend. 😂
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)
Umm, the only one I can think of is Little Women (published in 1868).
11. Newest book you’ve read? (publication date)
R. M. Archer’s Mirror-Hunter Chronicles, published in May, 2019.
12. Favourite author?
It’s so hard to pick!! Um, maybe… Sharon E. McKay, because I love her historical fiction. Or John Flanagan. His books are so much fun to read, even if I already have read them… five times.
13. Buying books or borrowing?
BUYING. No doubt there. I’m stocking up my bookshelves, because you never know. What if one day wifi is destroyed? Well, I’ll be just fine because I’ll have books. 😉
I don’t like borrowing books. I’d feel awful if I ever ruined someone’s.
14. A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?
I’ve never read any Harry Potter books… or want to… ever. I don’t know why. I just don’t really like the magical, mystical element. *shrugs*
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
I’m surprisingly OK with both. Dog ears if the pages are creme, and bookmarks if the pages are white. It’s weird but pretty accurate.
16. A book you can always reread?
Rangers Apprentice; The Ruins of Gorlan. I can’t reread all the books in the series, but the first book never fails me.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Yup, if it’s a song I know well.
18. One POV or multiple POVs?
Honestly, I like both. I don’t have a favourite.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Over multiple days… or weeks. I don’t have as much time as I used to. 😥
20. Who do you tag?
Evelyn @ The Rain-Drenched Writer
Camille @ The Sun-Soaked Writer
I don’t know if you guys have done this one before, but anyways. Have fun with it!
(P.S Isn’t it so cool that their blog names go together? That’s awesome. 😃)
