TAG: This or That Book



I found this book tag on a friend’s page. You should check her site out as she has great book conversations, tags and fun. Sophie @ Blame Chocolate  But the creator was Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks and so you must check out this site, too.


  • Mention the creator of the tag
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do that if you want to.
  • Tag other people to do this tag to spread the love!


Reading on the couch or on the bed?

Tough one… I read in bed before I go to sleep, but I also like sitting on the couch or the chair in the living room. If I had to choose… reading in bed. It’s a bit more comfy.

Male main character or female main character?

I usually prefer female main characters. I tend to learn more and understand it more easily.

Sweet snacks or salty snacks?

Definitely sweet. It’s hard to say no to them.

Trilogies or quartets?

I’ve read a ton more trilogies… can’t even think of a quartet off the top of my head.

First person POV or third POV?

I usually read third-person, so I tend to prefer it. But a really strong first-person narration can be even more chilling.

Reading at night or in the morning?

Definitely at night. Mornings are for blogging, social media and email.

Libraries or bookstores?

Not fair… too tough of a choice. Libraries for their beauty. Bookstores for the opportunity to keep it all for myself. If I had to choose… libraries. They have so much charm.

Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?

Books that make me cry. I enjoy laughing, but that’s a “point-in-time” reaction. If you make me cry (or feel emotion, since I really don’t cry), I’ll retain it forever.

Black book covers or white covers?

I think a black book cover stands out more and captures my attention. White makes me think it’s boring even though that’s not a true statement.

Character driven or plot driven?

I definitely like both, but preference is plot. I can forgive a bad character. I can’t accept a bad plot.


I’m not tagging anyone specific, but it’s easy and fun, so everyone should!

About Me

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. Each week, I will post a summary of a trip I’ve taken somewhere in the world. I’ll cover the transportation, hotel, restaurants, activities, who, what, when, where and why… and let you decide for yourself if it’s a trip worth taking.

Once you hit my site “ThisIsMyTruthNow” at https://thisismytruthnow.com, you can join the fun and see my blog and various site content. You’ll find book reviews, published and in-progress fiction, TV/Film reviews, favorite vacation spots and my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge.” Since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life… see how you compare!

Feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Tell me what you think. Note: All content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.



  1. Hope your not opposed to comment answers cause that’s what I’m doing:
    – I usually start reading on the couch but end up reading in bed; so both
    – Female mains. I’m sexist like that. Haven’t read a book with a good main male yet.
    – Depends on what I’m in the mood for. Lately its been sweet
    – The longer the series the better so both and then some?
    – I think most of my books are first person POV but sometimes the author mixes it up well
    – Doesn’t matter the time of day. If I have free time, I’m reading
    – Bookstores in libraries…. that’s truly a thing! I didn’t make it up!
    – I agree with you. Black book covers. Colors stand out better on black than white
    – Definitely plot. I need world building that drives the character to keep me interested.
    Another great one, James! 😀


  2. Cool answers!

    I definitely can understand about an author making you feel something while reading. I need to be emotionally invested in the characters, otherwise, why would I bother reading about them? Though I haven’t cried much while reading, I’ve definitely felt strong emotions with certain books and those are the ones that I end up loving.

    I feel trilogies are definitely more common, and have read more trilogies also. The only quartet I can think of is ‘Twilight’ 😛

    Thank you for sharing!
