The 20 Questions Book Tag

I just had to steal this great book tag idea from The Confessions Of A Music And Book Addict as it looked like so much fun!

1. How many books are too many books in a series?

For a beloved series, there are never enough, but when I'm feeling meh about a book it annoys me if it will take too long to get to the finale. I think the longest one I've read is the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong and I enjoyed every page of it 💖

2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?

A great way to keep people reading but I wish they didn't apply to me!

3. Hardback or Paperback?

Paperback always, so much easier to read. But I like a beautiful hardback if I'm buying something I've already read and loved, just to have it on my bookshelf.

4. Favourite Book?

I have so many but there are three in particular that always stick in my mind. Flawed by Cecilia Ahern, Gilded Cage by Vic James and After the Fire by Will Hill. I just can't recommend these enough!!!

5. Least favourite book?

I don't really know... actually I do. A Tale of Two Cities was probably the most boring book I have ever read. I had to force myself to read a couple of pages a day just to get through it. I think that's the last time I will ever force myself to read something I enjoy so little.

6. Love triangles, yes or no?

Please NO!

7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

I have very few of these as I really don't like leaving a book unfinished but I did have to learn eventually (see Q5). Look Up sounded like it would be really interesting as I love astronomy but I just couldn't get through the whole thing.

8. A book you’re currently reading?

Unusually for me I'm actually reading multiple books but my main one right now is Poisoned by Jennifer Donnelly.

9. Last book you recommended to someone?

The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman and The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar. Both to my sister on the same day and she still has them so I can't take a photo 😞

10. Oldest book you’ve read?

No idea, probably A Tale of Two Cities but there might have been older books I read when I was younger that I've forgotten.

11. Newest book you’ve read?

Escape From Aurora by Jamie Littler just came out on October 1st!

12. Favourite author?


13. Buying books or borrowing books?

Both! I love books so much I even buy copies of ebooks I've had for free if I really enjoyed them. And borrowing is good too as I can't possibly buy all the books I want. I adore visiting libraries.

14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

I think there are quite a few though none come to mind right now.

15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Bookmarks, please!

16. A book you can always reread?

All the Harry Potter series, though I don't really have much time for re-reads any more.

17. Can you read while listening to music?

Depends on the music and volume. If it's quiet I can, as long as I don't forget my book and just end up singing along.

18. One POV or multiple POVs?

I never really thought about this before but I do like to get more than one person's view of things. It can be a lot more illuminating, but also confusing if there are too many or it's not done really well.

19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

I would love to have time to finish a book in a day but it only ever happens on days off with an extremely short book.

20. Who do you tag?
