Hello. Book tags are fun and my brain is absolutely fried. I’m not sure where this book tag started, but I found the question to it on here.
As usual, I’m tagging everyone who wants to do it – although I’ve been posting for a few weeks now, I haven’t really made any new blogging friends, so I don’t have anyone to tag.
ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?
God, no. There are some films and TV shows I want to watch, but I’m not really interested in the books that came before them – especially the likes of teen movies and rom coms. Some series are just too long for me to wait until I read them to watch the show (The Wheel of Time and The Witcher, but I will be reading them eventually).
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?
As much as I love physical books, I think I would pick audiobooks. I don’t always have time to sit down and read a book physically, but audiobooks are so easy to read while doing other things, like cleaning, shopping or journaling. They’re the reason why I’ve been reading so much more lately.
SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Absolutely. I don’t know anyone in real life who reads as much as I do. My partner is a sporadic reader – but that’s my influence, he wasn’t really a reader when we first met or got together. I’m quite happy and content to be the only “full time” reader in my friend group, too. Being a reader is absolutely not a requirement for me.
GENRE SNOB: You have to ditch one genre — never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Easy peasy, this one. Romance. I don’t really read it, I’m not really drawn to it and I just prefer as little romance as possible in my books. I could also answer historical fiction.
UBER GENRE SNOB: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Can I cheat and say SFF? If not, I think I’d pick fantasy. It has been my favourite genre for the longest time. Lately, I’ve been feeling a little underwhelmed with the new fantasy books, but I reckon if I could only read fantasy, I’d soon regain my love for the genre.
COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Same answer as the one 2 questions up – romance. I guess I might be part of the problem although I never bash it. Romance books aren’t considered REAL books by many people. Or books read by REAL readers. It’s an incredibly popular genre nowadays, and yet people still come for it saying it has no substance. I disagree. While I don’t read from it much, I definitely see why people enjoy it so much. I’m like that with thriller novels and romcom movies!
Thanks for reading.
