Book Tag: Would you Rather

I am doing this because I was inspired by one of my fave bloggers Romance 4 the Beach

Feel free to be inspired and share your answers in the comments or link to your blog post with the same tag.

Would you rather only read trilogies or only read stand-alones?

Stand-alones. I hate with a passion trilogies where each book ends with a humongous cliffhanger to make you want to buy the next book. It is like the author is trying to strong arm you into buying 2 additional books.

Would you rather only read male or female authors?

Female authors. I read a lot of romance and I have not seen many male romance authors.

Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?

Amazon. Since I love my Kindle (just got a paperwhite YAY), I buy most of my books from Amazon already.

Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?

I would like to say neither because I do not think either do the book justice. But if I have to choose – Movies. The TV shows are more likely go off script when there are more seasons than books. I am a purist with this sort of thing.

Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

5 books per week! Reading 5 pages per day seems like water torture.

Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?

Professional reviewer. That would be how I am now, but I would be able to support myself financially too. That’s like a dream come true.

Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?

Librarian. I love libraries. Funny story: Growing up, I was complaining that I did not have enough money to buy more books. My mom told me that she knew of a place where I could read all the books I wanted for free.

“Where is this magical place?” I asked excitedly. 

The library.”

Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?

What kind of question is this? My favorite genre, OF COURSE! All day, every day. Only a masochist would choose otherwise.

Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?

This is difficult but I guess I would have to choose ebooks. I have close to 1,000 ebooks in my Kindle library now. With unlimited storage in the cloud…Let’s just say that makes me very happy to think of all my books. To infinity and beyond.

Seven Deadly Sins of Reading

Tag: Seven Deadly Sins of Reading

I was tagged by Romance4thebeach to participate, and it has taken me a while to get my act together to respond.

Defined as: An intense and selfish desire for something.

What is your most expensive book?

I am a cheap person when it comes to buying book. I usually by books at thrift stores and the clearance rack at bookstores or in compilations on Amazon. My most expensive book that I can remember is Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. It was a book club choice and had a long waiting list at the library. I have not started it yet but I think I will read it next weekend.

Defined as: Extreme anger.

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Eve Langlais. I need her to write faster or longer books. Or give me little short cyborg stories to tide me over until she gets the next book finished. From the first book, I fell in love with her cyborg series. But the book is over too soon! I need more. I don’t want to leave the world she created, but the book is finished and I have to wait months before I get the next book.

Defined as: Intense over-indulgence.

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

Dangerous, Ravished, Rendezvous and pretty much any of those one word title books by Amanda Quick that she wrote the 90s. Her heroines are pretty much the same independent women with ingenious ideas that may not always go according to plan. Thank goodness there is a strong, silent, honorable hunk of hero to assist. It was all that I wanted my own romance life to be. And to a certain extent, I think that I display some of the characteristics of Quick’s heroines. And my hubby is very similar to Quick’s heroes.

Defined as: a reluctance to work or make an effort.

What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?

Any books from the Outlander series. I was excited about getting into her books because my friend said they were “awesome!”. I went to Amazon to buy it and saw it was 800 pages. Nope. Nope. Not for me. I like to read a whole book in one sitting. So the most I can read is about 500 pages a day. I am not trying to read a book like it’s a job. I got tired thinking about reading Outlander.

Defined as: satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

I think that I sometimes drop Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte into a conversation to let people know that I do not JUST read trashy romance novels.

Defined as: a strong sexual desire.

What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

I love an alpha male. He is intelligent, witty, has a touch of a bad attitude, and comes across as a little cocky, but no one can argue because he has it going on. However, he becomes a softy in the hands of the heroine. He takes care of what is his and is fiercely loyal. While being rich (i.e. billionaire status) does not have to be part of the equation, it does help if money no object.

Defined as: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.

What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

So, I have to admit that I am a little greedy. I cannot just choose one book. I would LOVE it if someone would gift me the rest of the Billionaire’s Obsession Series by J.S Scott. I have read Simon, Sam, Max, Travis, Jason, and Tate’s stories. I NEED the rest. Even the ones that have not been published yet. I know the stories are going to great.

I nominate any bloggers that reads this to participate if they so desire. Let me know if you do this challenge because I would like to read your answers. Leave your link in the comments below.
