Rapid Fire Book Tag

Hey everyone! We recently saw Annike and Zoe do the Rapid Fire Book Tag created by GirlReading over on their blog, Twin Tales and we couldn’t help but do it for ourselves. So, without further ado, here we go!

Ebooks or physical books?

Physical book! Unless you are on vacation, then most definitely ebooks. There is a time and place for everything!

Paperback or hardback?

This is a hard one! We would say hardback because they are just so pretty, but paperbacks are far easier to read. Especially, if you can get your hands on one of those big, floppy ones that just fall open perfectly!

Online or in-store book shopping?

In-store. Always in-store.

Trilogies or series?

We are always so interested in series and we always start reading them, but often times we have a hard time finishing them and there is a lot of rereading involved so we would have to say trilogies. They are just long enough!

Heroes or Villains?

Umm…Villains, duh! Can you say The Darkling!?

A book you want everyone to read?

This is beyond tough. We gotta say Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder or Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Those are some important books to us. Also, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.

Recommend an underrated book?

Willow by Julia Hoban and absolutely anything by Lisa Schroeder, we just don’t see enough people talking about her.

The last book you finished?

Meg: The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead

Leah: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Weirdest thing you have used as a bookmark?

Receipts. Probably not the weirdest thing, but it’s the weirdest thing for us.

Used books, yes or no?

We like used books, we just don’t love used bookstores so we often buy new books.

Top three favorite genres?

Leah: Graphic novels/comics, fantasy and YA fantasy more specifically.

Meg: YA fantasy, YA contemporary, YA anything really.

Borrow or buy?

Unfortunately for our bank accounts: buy.

Characters or plot?

Gotta say characters. Bad or boring characters = bad or boring books.

Long or short book?

Whatever length it needs to be to feel complete.

Long or short chapters?

We really like short chapters because it allows you to read faster, however, it also sucks you in more and before you know it you’ve read the whole day away (not that that is entirely terrible)!

Name the first three books you think of…

Fallen by Lauren Kate, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Books that make you laugh or cry?

Depends on the mood! Only one book has ever made us cry though, that’s The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness. Definitely check it out if you haven’t read it yet.

Our world or fictional worlds?

A world is only as good as its characters! If they are believable the world will most likely be as well! However, as lovers of fantasy we are always really impressed by some good fictional world building.

Audiobooks: yes or no?

YES! Especially when you are away at college and don’t have much time to focus on reading for pleasure, it makes reading a lot more accessible, fun, and feel like a lot less like work.

Do you ever judge a book by its cover?

Umm…have you see our Cover Love series?!

Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?

We have yet to see a really great book to TV adaptation, but we feel like if one was made by the right people it could be far better than a movie adaptation.

Series or Standalone?

Meg: Series

Leah: Standalone

We aren’t really sure who to tag so we are just going to tag anyone and everyone who reads this! If you read this post and want to take a crack at it, we would love to see what you have to say in response to these rapid fire questions!
