Would You Rather || Book Tag

I randomly came across this tag over at loisreadsbooks and thought it would be a fun one! So here we go!

Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?

Trilogies! I love being with a story, the world, and characters for a while. So I definitley prefer trilogies!

Would you rather shop at Waterstones or Amazon?

I’ve never been to a Waterstones mainly because we don’t have one. So I’m just going to assume it could also be any bookstore, and of course I’d choose a bookstore. There’s just something about browsing the shelves that makes me happy!

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

TV Shows! I prefer tv to movies as it is. I love when books are adapted into shows, because I feel like you get more time with the story and characters. However, I know some adaptations fit better as movies, but I definitely prefer shows.

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

Definitely 5 books per week. I don’t think I could just read 5 pages a day.

Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?

Reviewer! Even though I struggle with writing reviews, I don’t think I could ever write a story. I wish I could, but no. I would definitely be better at reviewing all the amazing stories others create!

Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?

Oh this is interesting. Probably a librarian. No reason other than I just think I’d prefer it more.

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

Oh this is difficult…let’s see…favorite genre? Every other genre but my favorite? UGHHH…I’m struggling with this one. I think I’d have to go with read only my favorite genre??? Maybe…GAHHHH this is hard. Okay, yeah, I’m going to stick with read only my favorite genre. Final answer.

Would you rather only read e-books or physical books?

See, if you asked me this years ago, it would without a doubt have been physical books. But now, shockingly, I’d have to go with e-books. And only for the convience. You just can’t beat it…Oh wow… I honesly can’t believe I said e-books. I’m surprised myself!

And that’s it for the tag! What about you? What would your answers be?

Never Have I Ever || Blogger Edition

I saw this fun tag over at Whispering Stories page. This was created by My Rollercoaster Journey.

Never Have I Ever || Blogger Edition:

1. Published a post without revising it

Honestly, I want to say no…but I think I may have back in my very beginner days of blogging.

2. Published a post without pictures

Yupp! Absolutely. This post will most likely not have any pictures.

3. Stayed up all night writing a post

Nope. Not that I can recall.

4. Copy pasted a post entirely

No!

5. Went more than a week without posting

Yes. Never intentionally. But an unintentional haitus has happened to me…more than once.

6. Blogged on a topic just because it was trending

I believe so? I can’t think of any specific topics off the top of my head, but I’m sure I have.

7. Commented on another person’s blog just to promote myself

Nope.

8. Published a post with no links inside

Absolutely. Especially in my early days when I didn’t know what the heck I was doing.

9. Pushed yourself to blog when you didn’t feel like it

Yes. I try to post at least once a week, but at times even that feels tough. I’ll have these moments where I’ll say maybe I’ll just skip this week, but I push myself to put up a post because I know if I don’t then I’ll just keep skipping and then one week will turn into another week of not posting and so on. But I think we have all had those moments, right? I’m always SO IMPRESSED with people who can manage three, four, five posts a week! I honestly don’t know how they do it.

10. I’m out of ideas but there have to be 10 questions, so adding a random number to a list just so the list can be 5 items or 10 items

Haha! This is just funny. But yes. I don’t know why, but whenever I make list I’ll always end them on multiples of five. Why is it like that?

And that’s it for the questions. This was a really fun tag to participate in. I hope you enjoyed!

WWW Wednesdays…on Thursday?!?!?!

I wanted to participate in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words, but I forgot to upload it on Wednesday(SORRY. I really just lost track of time). So here we are uploading it on Thursday! YAY!!! If you don’t know how it works, you simply answer the three W questions below!

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

What am I currently reading?

What did I recently finish?

Hellion by Rhys Ford. This was a random book I found when I was searching through Libby late at night. It was a fine read. I didn’t love it, but also didn’t hate it. I do think I may check out more by this author at some point, but I’m not in any rush.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I honestly don’t know. I’m thinking possibly a manga??? We shall see!

What about you guys? What are you currently reading? What have you recently finished? And what do you plan on reading next?

Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag || Happy Thanksgiving!

I came across this tag over at Elley the Book Otter page and thought lets do this! So here’s the Thanksgiving Feast Book Tag!

Turkey: The centerpiece of any Thanksgiving Feast, but it’s always dry and actually isn’t that great… – A book that everyone likes, for some reason that completely escapes you.

You by Caroline Kepnes. I’ve tried to read this book a couple of times now, and I just can’t seem to get into it. I think this one is just not for me. (Also, I haven’t watched the show yet, but I do want to check it out)

Stuffing: Warm and filling, and best when smothered with gravy – A comfort read.

For me, this would be the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare! At this point I’ve reread them multiple times(at least The Mortal Instruments), and I still feel like I’m finding things that I missed. And each time, I get sucked back into the world!

Potatoes: Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew – A book that’s great in any format – hardcover, digital, audio…

I believe the A Good Girls Guide to Murder books by Holly Jackson are perfect in any format! I’ve read the first two books, three ways. I listen to the audiobook for both, while reading the hardcover for the first book, and the ebook for the second! I enjoyed them each way.

Green Bean Casserole: the obligatory side dish that you have to have… whether you want it for not. – A book that you were obligated to read (for school, for a book club, because it was a gift…)

There were a lot of books that I had to read for school that I didn’t enjoy, but they’re also some that I did. So I thought I’d share one that I did enjoy. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I will admit, it has been awhile since I’ve read this, but I remember being so surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I do wonder if I were to reread this, what I would think of it now.

Jello Salad: Look, this is dessert, how on earth does jello with bits of fruit and marshmallows and whipped cream get classified as ANY sort of salad? – A book that is really bizarre.

I honestly can’t think of a really bizarre book that I’ve read off the top of my head…hmm…

Cranberries: Do you serve real cranberries, or canned cranberry jelly? A book that is highly divisive – and you have strong opinions about it.

I’m going to have to steal her answer and say Twilight! It gets a lot of flack, and I really don’t think it deserves it. Of course it has it’s flaws, but I think it’s a series that will always be important to people!

Pie: Whether it’s pumpkin, apple, pecan, or French silk, it’s not Thanksgiving without pie – A book you can’t live without.

I’m going to have to repeat an answer and go with the Shadowhunter series as a whole. I’ve been reading these books for a very long time, and I just can’t imagine what it be like to not have this series, and these characters! I absolutely love this series!

This paragraph really stuck out to me when I read Paper Towns and I thought I’d share:

“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for planning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future–you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.”

This is a quote from Scarlet that always makes me laugh when I read it!

“A relieved grin filled up Thorne’s face. “We’re having another moment, aren’t we?”
“If by a moment, you mean me not wanting to strangle you for the first time since we met, then I guess we are.” Cinder slumped back on the floor. “Although maybe I’m just too exhausted to want to strangle anybody.”
