Many thanks to Emma at Emma’s Bookish Corner for tagging me into the Rapid Fire Book Tag! I’m assuming from the name that the answers are meant to brief, and I had to stop myself elaborating on many of these questions.
eBooks or physical books?
Paperback or hardback?
Usually paperback, although hardback if there’s an opportunity to get it signed by the author.
Online or in-store shopping?
In-store – browsing online just isn’t the same.
Trilogies or series?
I enjoy both, although I hate waiting for the next in a series!
Heroes or villains?
This probably says a lot about me, but villains!
A book you want everyone to read.
Anatomy of a Soldier by Harry Parker
Recommend an underrated book.
The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist
The last book you finished.
The Bishop’s Girl by Rebecca Burns
Weirdest thing you’ve used as a book mark.
Nothing more unusual than a train ticket – I tend to have a bookmark with me.
Used books – yes or no?
Yes, although they need to be in reasonably good condition.
Top three favourite genres?
Dystopian / Post-apocalyptic
Borrow or Buy?
Characters or plot?
Both are important, but if you’re forcing me to choose then plot.
Short or long book?
Long or short chapters?
Name the first three books you think of.
Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
Children of Men by P. D. James
A Love Like Blood by Marcus Sedgwick
Books that make you laugh or cry?
Laugh – I don’t really cry at either books or films.
Our world or fictional worlds?
Do you ever judge a book by its cover?
Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?
It depends – some books can’t be condensed into a movie.
Series or standalone?
