TAG: This or That in Reading

Posted on Updated on

I was tagged by Kristin @ A Simply Enchanted Life. Please check our her beautiful blog. The original creator of the tag is ayundabhuwana’s blog. Check out her amazing blog as well.

And now for the questions!

Reading in bed or on the couch? Both. I read in bed most nights from about 10 until 11, but if I am done early enough before my partner gets home, I’ll read on the couch for 30 to 45 minutes. I prefer bed only because it’s more comfortable.

Male main character or female main character? No preference. It all depends on the plot and setting.

Trilogies or quartets? I can’t think of a quartet I’ve read, so I’ll go with trilogies.

First person POV or third person POV? My first two novels are written in third person, but my next one will be in first person. For reading, I tend to like third person only because then I can understand things from multiple character perspectives more easily.

Sweet snacks or salty snacks? Sweet. I have a really bad sweet tooth that has to be managed with revenge, coaxing, moderation, and anxiety. Oh, and working out, too.

Reading at day or night? I prefer daytime reading only because if I am too tired at night, I don’t pick up the entire story as easily as if I’m refreshed.

Libraries or bookstores? I don’t go to either very often anymore as I get most of my books directly from publishers, giveaways, or authors. But I do like stopping in a bookstore once a month to check out the shelves and see what’s being highlighted. I love visiting libraries and should really invest more time in them. I do live in NYC…

Books that make you laugh or cry? I like to laugh, but I’m more invested when I cry.

Black books covers or white book covers? Black. I like darker elements in books.

Character driven or plot driven? Plot all the way. I can suffer through a semi-bad character if the plot is engaging. But there are very few books whose characters alone can pull off a committed read when the plot is awful or boring.

Thanks for reading this tag! Now for the nominees — I tag the following five bloggers:

  1. Create Space
  2. Viola Bleu
  3. Countdown to 95
  4. The G Sandwich
  5. Invisible-no-more

Happy reading and tagging!

        I’m really not joking… I’ll think I’ll do two a day for the next 3 weeks. It’ll be painful but fun. 🙂 Good luck.
