This or That Book Tag

I saw this on Bentley’s blog, Book Bastion. Make sure to check out his blog and his answers to this tag, too.

Let me know what you would choose!

Reading on the Bed or the Couch?

Ugh! This is hard. I find the couch more comfortable, however, because of that, I am most likely to fall asleep while reading on the couch. I definitely can stay up much longer reading in bed.

Male Main Character or Female Main Character?

Male! I don’t know if it’s because I’m female or what, but I generally like them so much more. Typically, there is less drama. Then again, I tend to like the characters that get pushed aside by the female characters.

Sweet Snacks or Salty Snacks while reading?

Nothing! I can’t use both hands to read my book then!

Trilogies or Quartets?

You know, this is another hard one. Trilogies are more common, but the second book is generally a fluffer, which I find annoying.

At the same time, quartets can also make me feel like a series can be consolidated in less books, while still clearly getting the point across.

Reading First Person or Third Person POV?

First person! And I think in relation to movies, the emotions and thoughts running through the protagonist’s head is missed when not shown in this point-of-view.

Reading at Night, or in the Morning?

Whenever I can! Life is busy, but I’m shooting for one comic and one novel a week.

Libraries or Bookstores?

I don’t discriminate…


Books that make you laugh or cry?

Probably cry…it’s hard to make me laugh, especially in a book (more likely to happen in a movie). Plus, my type of humor isn’t really covered in books…Impractical Jokers is more my style.

Black book covers or white covers?

Black! My books look pretty dang near perfect after I finish reading them. White would make that a lot harder to maintain.

Character driven or Plot driven?

Plot! I generally don’t fall in love with many characters in a book, unless they happen to be side characters, of course. So with my favorite characters generally not having a huge role to play, the plot really drives whether or not I would like to continue with a series. The characters definitely make a story better, but are not the end all be all for me.

If I haven’t tagged you, and you’d like to participate – do it! Let me know in the comments below so that I know it’s okay to tag you in the future.

  1. You’re totally right about trilogies and the second book being fluffy!! Not always, but it is very common that nothing happens in the second book besides a giant set-up to the final installment. I prefer a standalone or a dualogy – both very uncommon 😀
