I saw this tag on Olive’s channel and I really love the questions for showing more of my reading preferences. Let me know your answers in the comments or tag me if you decide to do this on your own blog.
1. Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
No! I often see the film and then it inspires me to want to read the book – plus seeing the movie first you can’t be upset they left out your favourite part.
2. Format Snob: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, ebooks, or audiobooks?
Definitely physical books. I have to really enjoy a narrator to listen to audiobooks and I don’t often read ebooks unless I’m on holiday etc.
3. Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Yes… but I’d prefer someone who enjoys reading (maybe not as much as me)
4. Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Fantasy – Apart from Harry Potter I’ve never really cared much about fantasy – I’d rather read things set in the real world. I also find it difficult to really get involved in fantasy worlds with characters I can’t pronounce the name of!
5. Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
This might be cheating but contemporary? I don’t really read specific genres like horror, romance, fantasy… but I do like contemporary books.
6. Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Not so much snobbery, but I wish there was more non-fiction in the community and not just the latest bestsellers. I rarely read non-fiction (besides true crime) because I just never hear of anything.
7. Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
I think some people can be really snobby about Harry Potter. I had a teacher once wonder why I wasn’t reading more literary stuff because I loved reading so much, like I was above Harry Potter! But it’s been a constant in my life since I was 6 so it’s staying.
