I am in a writing slump right now. I can’t write reviews and I’m tired from all the pressure at work. So, I am back with a book tag because they are so fun and easy to do!
This is a 20 Questions Book Tag featuring all interesting questions about books that you’ve read. Some questions are challenging. Like favourites? I can’t pick just one!
Well, here we go –
How many books is too many books in a series?
Well, I think more than 10? Especially if the story could have wrapped up in 8 or so books. I love longer books and a longer series if I love the author and the world she’s building. But I really find it boring when one or two books in the series are nothing but fillers and don’t lead the story anywhere and has no character development.
How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I have a love and hate relationship with them haha.
I love them if the books are all out and I don’t have to wait like crazy for the next book. Or if I know the next book is going to be out in a month.
The last book that literally drove me crazy was A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire and The Crown of Gilded Bones from the Blood and Ash series by Jennifer L Armentrout. I would always stalk the spoiler group for the teasers and read theories by other people.
I hate them if I have to wait for a like year for the next book. A year, seriously?
Hardback or Paperback?
I’ve never owned a Hardback before. And I prefer paperbacks because they are probably lighter to hold, can bend backwards, and easily transportable. I think with paperbacks, you can be a little careless too? Haha.
I feel like if I had a hardback, I wouldn’t really read them? I’d just keep them on a shelf to look pretty.
Okay, so I cannot pick just one favorite book. I’ve got several to choose from – depending upon the mood, genre, author. Honestly, I don’t think I really have a favorite? Only those that have really imprinted on my mind.
Here are some of mine all read in 2021 –
Looking for your next read? Check out my review for Deviant King by Rina Kent!
Least favorite book?
Well let’s go with the one I DNFed.
Bright Midnight by Karina Halle.
Love Triangles: Yes or No?
NO. Reverse Harem has corrupted me lol. I mean, why choose?
With Love Triangles, it so happens that you might end up liking the other guy more than the hero. And I feel like one of them has suffered just for the other two to get the HEA?
The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
Tyrant Stalker (Tyrant Dynasty #2) by Isabella Starling.
So I love Dark Romance, Stalker Dark Heroes, and even the angst. I like the push and pull, the ‘I hate you but I want you’ bit, but I felt this book dragged it out a lot. No character development at 50% mark so DNFed it.
A book you’re currently reading?
I just finished reading Inheritance (Monarchs of Hell, Book 3). It’s a Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance set in Hell and it was an interesting read!
The last book you recommended to someone?
Uh, I haven’t been recommending anyone books lately because I haven’t been reading a lot these days. But the one book I’m always recommending to people is A Nordic King by Karina Halle.
Check out my review for Twisted Love Ana Huang.
Oldest book you’ve read by publication date?
Pride and Prejudice. But I really don’t remember the story.
Newest book you’ve read by publication date?
Death (The Four Horsemen #4) and also one of my top favourite books in 2021.
Right – I don’t have just one favorite. But a couple of authors I love include are Jennifer L Armentrout and Jaymin Eve.
Buying books or borrowing books?
Both. Sometimes I think reading books is more of a luxurious hobby because they can get really expensive. I love Kindle Unlimited because I’ve read so many books without spending too much.
A book that you dislike that everyone else seems to love?
So there’s an author I love – Tijan. But the last two books I read by hers really didn’t hit the mark. Canary and The Insiders were more of a 2.5 star reads for me and everyone loved them.
Bookmarks or dog-ears?
Bookmarks! Confession – I used to dog-ear the pages when I was in my teens.
A book you can always reread?
Do you ever get images of a book you’ve read before and it feels like you’ve watched a movie and want to experience it again? There are some books that just pop in my mind that I want to re-read. But some book(s) I can always re-read are
Can you read while hearing music?
No, they can distract me because I love listening to the lyrics as well as the music.
One or multiple povs?
Multiple POVs when they are RH, Contemporary Romances – but only of the main characters.
One POV when it’s Suspenseful or Dark Romances where not knowing the main hero/anti-hero’s intention heightens the angst and tension.
Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
Both. If it is a standalone novel or a duet or trilogy and I’m hooked to it, I’ll finish it one sitting.
A book you’ve read because of the cover?
I am a picky reader and usually read the blurb or the reviews. Some books that caught my eye because of the cover were –
