Would You Rather Book Tag

I saw this tag over on Book Princess Reviews (you’re missing out if you don’t already follow them!) back in August. As usual it’s been in my Tags to-do folder for ages, but it seemed perfect for today.

Rather read only a series or stand-alone books?

I prefer standalone over series and rarely read series. There’s just too much commitment and there doesn’t seem to be much contemporary fiction (my favourite genre) written in serial format.

Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?

I tend to read books with a female main character (although not on purpose!) I wish there were more books of the topics I like to read but with male main characters. I think this year the only male MCs I’ve read have been in LGBT books.

Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or another actual bookstore) or Amazon?

I usually get my books from the library or charity shop because I’m not working, but I’d love to have the money to support local bookshops. There are some great ones near my house.

Rather all books become movies or tv shows?

I love going to the cinema, but often books that are made into movies miss out so much, whereas a TV programme can take more time so I think I’d say TV.

Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?

5 books a week for me seems like a rush to read as many books as possible, rather than savouring the book so I’d rather read 5 pages a day then rely on audiobooks (definitely not cheating!)

Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?

I never have ideas for books, and I think I would get even less reading done if I was writing my own, so I’d go for a book reviewer. It would be ideal to be paid for book reviews.

Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?

This is a weird question, but I think I’d get a new book every 6 months. I suppose I can survive on magazines, but I’d be bored with the same 20 books for the rest of my life.

Rather be a librarian or own a bookstore?

I think both would be great, but you’d have more control over a bookshop, what books you wanted to sell and how you wanted to decorate so I’d say own a shop.

Rather only read your favourite genre or your favourite author?

My favourite author only writes books from my favourite genre, so I’ll pick my genre and “have my cake and eat it.”

Rather only read physical books or eBooks?

Physical for sure. I read a lot in the bath and I’m not gonna risk a kindle above a bathtub.

  1. Ooooh this is a really fun tag, and I loved reading your answers! I’m totally with you on standalones. Some series are just way too much of a commitment. I know series that keep going on and on, but standalones at least have you good to go with one. And I’m with you about the male MCs! There are just so rare in YA! I’ve seen a bit more, but I’m with you! Great answers, and thanks so much for shoutout! 🙂
