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.
Oookaaay… I think that’s it. 😀
- 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’.
- 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 😉)
- Hardback or Paperback?
Hardback for feel and aesthetic. Paperback for price and ease of storage.
- Favorite book?
Generally, I answer this question with Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, The House of Spirits…
- Least Favorite book?
If I didn’t like it, I forgot about it.
- Love Triangles, yes or no?
- 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.

- Buying books or borrowing books?
- A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?
Can’t really think of one.
- Bookmarks or dog ears?
Bookmarks or try to remember the page number.
- A book you can always re-read?
Pride and Prejudice.
- 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.
- One POV or multiple POVs? (POV = point of view)
I like both depending on the story.
- 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.
- 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.
Anyone who hasn’t yet done this tag and would like to try it.
