Rapid Fire Book Tag

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


Psychological thrillers

Borrow or Buy?

Always 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?

  1. I’m with you with paperbacks and always buy! I never go to the library because I want them forever hahaha

    1. That’s the thing – I want to keep them! And people generally don’t approve of that when you’ve borrowed something! 😂

      1. Oh no! 😣 To be honest, I don’t really let people borrow my books either – I’d have to have a great deal of trust in them before I did!

  2. I had stop myself elaborating as well, I just tend to give big answers when answering tag questions but I had to limit myself when doing this one haha 🙂 🙂 Great post and answers! 🙂
