I saw this on The Book Gram and knew I had to partake!
Would you rather read trilogies or stand-alones?
*sighs* Trilogies are literally the bane of my existence. It’s so annoying when you read the first book, love it, but then have to wait a year for the next installment. Then by the time the second comes out, you can’t remember the first, so you have to re-read the first… and when you have a massive TBR pile like I do, re-reading books isn’t exactly easy… Because of that I’ve developed a bit of a rule – I read the first, then if I love it, I wait for the whole series to come out, then I devour them all at once 🙂 So yes… I prefer stand-alones!
Would you rather read only male or female authors?
I read a lot of young adult fiction with female protagonists, so because of that, I prefer female authors. I like a lot of romance in my novels, and giggly-hand-flappy moments, so I think female authors portray those heated emotions better.
Would you rather shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
I’m an Aussie, so I prefer Book Depository or Fishpond.
Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
I’d prefer TV shows… because then you can follow the show season after season after season. Like Vampire Diaries. I never read the books, but the TV show is pretty addictive.
Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Hard question… I’d love to say 5 books a week but I just don’t have the time. I work full-time, go to the gym, have a pretty crazy social life and see my boyfriend a lot – I feel like having a good balance in life is important, so I’m going to go with 5 pages.
Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
Another hard question. It’s no real secret that I’d LOVE to be a published author. But sometimes I think that reading is my true passion. I’d love to see where this book reviewing thing takes me. Reading is something I’ve always loved so much.
Would you rather be a librarian or a book seller?
Definitely a book seller. Being a librarian would drive me mental, I think. Our local library is always filled with screaming kids 🙂 It would be cool to own a little book store in some hole in the wall somewhere.
Would you rather read only your favourite genre or every genre but your favourite?
I love contemporary romances, and lately I haven’t been reading out of that genre very much. So I think I’ll stick with a good ol romance.
Would you rather read only e-books or physical books?
Physical books definitely! I do love my e-reader and it’s very handy when I travel, but I love being surrounded by books. I want to keep growing my personal library 🙂
