Thank you Priyasha for this tag!!!!

Head over to Books and Co. to meet the lovely Priyasha, if you haven’t already.  I’m sure you’ll find something to enjoy over on her site.

*Update:  Just remembered I was also tagged by the equally lovely Noriko for this tag!  Lol. Trying to keep up!  Please do check out Noriko’s beautiful blog as well.

*Another Update: I didn’t realise just how popular this tag was!  Thanks also to Joe at Storeys of Stories and Paige over at The Girl With All The Books.

  1. How many books is too many in a series?
    Depends on how well the author keeps it going. I’m up to number 12, I think, in a series I really enjoy and have no complaints about it. Yet, I’ve also read series that by Book 3, I’m a bit ‘over it’.

 

  1. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
    I appreciate that these can really drag a reader in and have us almost salivating for the next release, but give a reader some warning! I hate to be fully engrossed in my book, resolutions come rolling in, the end is approaching then WHAM! Random plot twist right on the VERY LAST PAGE????!!!!  No. No. No.  And what’s that? The next book won’t be out for almost a year?  Are you kidding me???!  I need to know that ‘something’ (not the actual happening) drastic will happen at the end and that it’s a cliffhanger ending.  I will then wait until book 2 is out and read 1 and 2 close together. (This rant first appeared here 😉)

 

  1. Hardback or Paperback?
    Hardback for feel and aesthetic. Paperback for price and ease of storage.

 

  1. Favorite book?
    Generally, I answer this question with Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, The House of Spirits…

 

  1. Least Favorite book?

If I didn’t like it, I forgot about it.

 

  1. Love Triangles, yes or no?
    Nope.

 

  1. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?

I’m a ‘stick it out til the end, even if you have to skim a few chapters’ kinda reader.

 

  1. A book you’re currently reading?

 Gone to Her Grave by Melinda Leigh

 

  1. The last book you recommended to someone?

Pretty much every book I give a 4 espresso shot rating and higher to.

 

  1. The oldest book you’ve read?

The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (written between 1387 and 1400).

 

  1. Newest book you’ve read?

One Summer in Rome by Samantha Tonge (published this past Wednesday).

 

  1. Favorite Author?

Based on the novels above: Jane Austen, J K Rowling, Isabel Allende

 

  1. Buying books or borrowing books?

Both.

 

  1. A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?

Can’t really think of one.

 

  1. Bookmarks or dog ears?

Bookmarks or try to remember the page number.

 

  1. A book you can always re-read?

Pride and Prejudice.

 

  1. Can you read while listening to music?

Not really. But I can read and watch tv.  Lol.  Usually though, I end up forgetting about the tv show.

 

  1. One POV or multiple POVs? (POV = point of view)

I like both depending on the story.

 

  1. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Would love to sit and read in one sitting.  Time and responsibilities only allow for multiple sittings.

 

  1. A book you’ve read because of the cover?

This book gets called out so often for this: Charlee and the Chocolate Shop by Jessica Redland.

 

I Tag…..

Anyone who hasn’t yet done this tag and would like to try it.

happy saturday

  2. Great way to explain your series answer, I couldn’t have said it better. I don’t mind if they go on and on if it stays fresh and fun to read but some I’ve wondered why it didn’t end at 1. LOL

  3. We have a lot of the same answers and I loved your answer for hardback or paperback lol. I ADORE my hardbacks, but have to get them used most of the time because they’re so expensive. I’ve made some exceptions lately though. 😉 Definitely no dog ears! Ugh 😀 Great tag, Nina. ❤

    1. Hahaha. I’m trying to remember the last hardback I bought new… I really can’t! Lol. It’s ridiculous how expensive they are.
      I might get Next Year in Havana new in hardback though… I really want a copy I can lend out to my students and that should be able to take more of a pounding.

      1. I hear you! I love finding them at book sales. For me it’s like everything in my life needs to be industrial strength or it doesn’t last lol. I hope you can get a copy for your students. That’s so sweet to think of them! ❤ I do have that one added. 😁

    1. I know exactly what you mean!! I find even if a book turns out okay in the end… the fact that you felt like you suffered trough parts of it can’t be forgotten. Lol. Rarely is it ever really worth it.

  4. Hello!
    I absolutely agree about cliffhangers! It is so frustrating to have to wait until the next book – especially when it is not released yet! I don’t mind cliffhangers at the end of chapters though 🙂 Great post!
