My friend Richard has an awesome blog with book, movie reviews and other posts. He has been reviewing the Harry Potter books recently in a lot of detail so you will want to check that out. https://velociraptor256.wordpress.com/
Recently he posted a tag he found from a blogger named Kristen P, I thought it looked like fun and I’d give it a go!
Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?
Definitely standalones. There aren’t that many series that I love. I find usually the quality goes down with each entry.
Would you rather only read male or female authors?
I’d like to meet the person that this matters for. I guess if I was forced to pick I would go with female because then I could read Elizabeth Gaskell, JK Rowling, and Jane Austen.
Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?
Amazon because I’m lazy and don’t want to leave my house.
Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?
As a movie fan I go with movies but there are some good miniseries from books like all the Austen series. Still, those feel like long movies rather than TV shows, so I’d still say movies. It’s hard to think of good prime time shows that are based on books?
Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
5 pages a day I’m afraid although I would miss diving into a book and binging on it. I just like savoring books rather than speeding my way through them.
Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?
Hmmm…this is a tough one. I guess I go with reviewer because it would take what I already do but make it my profession. That wouldn’t be half bad. I have dabbled in writing with this blog and nanowrimo but am probably a better critic than author.
Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?
I think librarian because you’d get to help kids more, introducing them to great books. But all the quiet, all the time would be a little annoying.
Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?
My favorite genre but then again I’m not a huge genre purist. I think many books fit multiple genres so I think I could sneak my way into other genres with that excuse.
Would you rather read your writing aloud to a roomful of loved ones or strangers?
It’s so weird but strangers. You have to live with the your loved ones so if they didn’t like it that would be so awkward.
Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?
Definitely physical books as I do not have an ereader yet. But I do listen to a lot of books so that might be my true pick.
So that is the tag. If you’d like to do it please do! It’s a lot of fun.
