This or That Book Tag

Thank you so much to The Bookish Libra for tagging me and to Tea and Paperbacks for creating this tag!  I've never been tagged before, so I'm excited and a little nervous!  I'm normally a very indecisive person, but hopefully I can give you all some fun answers. 

The Rules:

  • Mention the creator of the tag
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  • Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
  • Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love

The Questions:

One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?
Couch, definitely.  It's way more comfortable and I can be in the same room as my husband, as long as he's awake, and if he's sleeping, I don't want to bother him by having lights on in the bedroom.

Two: Male main character or female main character?
Female.  I think I connect with them better.

Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
Sweet!  I'm not really into salty food; I'd rather have chocolate!

Four: Trilogies or quartets?
I'd take either.  I like series as long as the story is still progressing and makes sense; and if they continue on even longer than 3 or 4 books (like Outlander or Game of Thrones), I'm okay with that, too!

Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?
Probably third person, particularly if the book follows more than one character.  It can get confusing if there is more than one first-person narrator.  Sometimes I also run into the issue of not really liking the main character, so to be stuck in their heads exclusively can be a bummer.

Six: Reading at night or in the morning?
At night.  Sometimes I read in the morning, but I don't usually have that much time, so I'd rather read at night after all the household chores are done and I can relax.

Seven: Libraries or bookstores?
Libraries! I like being able to just walk around and pick whatever I want off the shelf, without worrying about how much it's going to cost!

Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
Cry.  It's very rare that I will laugh while reading a book.  I think hearing a tone of voice or seeing a facial expression are really important in humor.  But some of my favorite books can make me tear up just through words.

Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?
I like books with interesting covers, but I guess if I had to choose, I'd say black because a lot of the books I own have darker covers.

Ten: Character driven or plot driven stories?
Hmm... I guess I would say plot-driven stories.  I don't necessarily mean non-stop action, but I like for things to be happening and moving along and giving the characters something to react to.

  1. Oh how cool! Thank yu for the nomination :) We just answer the questions right?

    1. You're welcome! Yep, can't wait to read your answers!

  2. I loved reading your answers, especially that you can actually read and hang out with your hubby at the same time. Mine always talks too much so I usually have to get up and leave if I'm trying to read, haha.

    1. Haha, mine is usually playing video games, so unless he's showing me some great move he just made, he's pretty quiet!


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
