Life has been busy lately, which has made my blogging spotty. I have several posts lined up to publish, if only I could finish them, but every time I sit down to write it’s usually very late so I feel tired and sleepy. Time hasn’t been on my side lately.
Since I couldn’t complete my intended post, I’ve decided to do this fun tag instead that I found on Kristin Kraves Books. The tag is based on a Buzzfeed article and it contains some difficult questions that only book lovers will struggle with.
Would you rather have a friend who loses your books or one who dog-ears them?
Ugh! I hate both, not that I’d loan my book to a friend, but I hate losing books so I’d go with the dog-ears, if I really, really need to choose one.
Would you rather secretly love a book everyone else hates or secretly hate a book everyone else loves?
I prefer to secretly love a book everyone hates. It’s less annoying for me that way and I could have fun quoting from it to others to get on their nerves. Lol!
Would you rather be stuck on a very long plane or train ride without a book?
Erm…plane ride? I could stare out the window instead and make up stories, which I do on every plane ride anyway so nothing new there.
Would you rather have dinner with your favorite author or your favorite character?
My favorite author because some of my favorite characters aren’t good people and some are unpredictable and quite dangerous. Having dinner with my favorite author would be a lot safer and I could pester them with questions about my favorite characters in their stories.
Would you rather date a character you have a crush on or your crush from real life?
I’d rather my crush from real life because (as I said above) some of the characters I like aren’t good people and some are unpredictable and quite dangerous.
Would you rather have your favorite book turned into a movie or your favorite movie turned into a book?
Because of this —
I’d rather have my favorite movie turned into a book. Adaptations seem to go better that way. I loved The Shape of Water movie when I watched it late last year and was happy when I heard the novel would be published this year. I just completed the book and loved it as much as I did the movie. The novel version gives the characters more depth, especially the villain, so I prefer movie-to-book adaptations.
Would you rather read a book with an annoying cliffhanger or one where your favorite character is killed off?
Ugh!!! This is a toughy. Umm…umm…I guess I’ll go with the cliffhanger because at least that will get me pumped for the next installment of the story whereas having my favorite character die might throw me into a reading slump or something.
Would you rather lose the ability to read any new books or the ability to reread books you’ve already read?
Much as I love to reread books, I’d rather lose the ability to reread than the ability to read new books because if I lose the ability to read new books after I’ve read just one book, then that’s the only book I’ll be able to read forever. I think of “new books” here as “new-to-me books,” whether newly published or not.
Would you rather live in a library or a bookstore?
Definitely a bookstore. I prefer the scent of new books and the feel of pristine pages. I’m not a fan of old and musty.
Would you rather lose your place or get a paper cut every time you read a book?
Yo, paper cuts hurt like hell! I had one the other day and JEEZ! It was so annoying! I’d rather lose my place in a book. I’m good at finding it back.
Would you rather have to always read in the dark or always read books with tiny text?
I’ll go with the tiny text because I could whip out a magnifying glass to help. According to my family, reading in the dark is what messed up my eyes and made me have to wear glasses. 😦
Would you rather read by a fireplace or on the beach?
I used to think I’d prefer the beach, but I’m easily distracted when outside and I hate bugs so I’ll go with the fireplace instead and a cushy sofa to recline in. I’d be so comfy. Maybe have some hot chocolate to sip on every now and then.
