20 Questions Book Tag

Hi. I know what you’re thinking. “Um, Brittany, it’s Sunday. Don’t you always say that Sunday’s are for TBR posts?” Yes, I do say that.

I’ve decided to move my Down the TBR Hole posts to every other week instead of weekly. I love doing them but they have started to feel a bit repetitive to me and I don’t want to put out posts that aren’t even exciting to me. So, I’ll have a new Down the TBR Hole post next Sunday!

Today, I’ll be doing the 20 questions book tag. I wasn’t tagged in this, but I saw it done by Christina over at Creative Critique. She had some great answers, so you can check out her post as well! I won’t be tagging, but as always, if you’re interested, consider yourself tagged!

How many books do you think are too many books in a book series?

Oooh, that’s a great question! I think it honestly depends on how well done the series is. For instance, the Harry Potter series has 7 books and that doesn’t seem like overkill, but the Pretty Little Liars series has like 18 (give or take) and it’s a little much in my opinion.

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

Cliffhangers and I have a complete love/hate relationship. I think that a cliffhanger keeps a reader’s interest for the next book and that’s an awesome skill for an author to perfect. However, now I have to wait for the next book release to find out what happened.

Hardback or paperback?

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it a billion times. Paperback. I know that a lot of readers prefer hardbacks, and as far as the aesthetic goes, I’d definitely say that they win. But to read…. I like a paperback. It’s not as difficult to hold, it’s cheaper, and I loathe dust covers.

Favorite book?

This changes so often. I don’t really say I have a favorite, but I’ll say a book is in my top five. I love them all too much to pick just one. My top five might seem a little odd, but the way I figure a book is one of my favorites is how much it sticks with me after reading. There are ton of books I’ve read that were 5 star reads for me, but they didn’t stay in my brain. These five have a special place in my heart for whatever reason. My current top five books are: Looking for Alaska by John Green, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and Dreamland by Sarah Dessen.

Least favorite book?

I honestly don’t have one that I consider to be the worst.

Love triangles, yes or no?

Please, no. They work for very few stories as far as I’m concerned. And by that I mean, they may carry the plot along perfectly fine but I as a reader am losing interest because I hardly care enough about romance for one love story line, much less two.

The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

The War Blog by Glen Sobey.

A book you’re currently reading?

The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan (the PJO series is going down as one of my favorite series).

Last book you recommended to someone?

I recommend books on here a lot, but when it comes to in-person recommendations, I genuinely don’t remember. My mom and I talk about books a ton but we don’t enjoy similar works, so it’s hard to remember what I would’ve last recommended to her.

Oldest book you’ve read?

Is that something that other people know the answer to? I have absolutely no idea.

Newest book you’ve read?

The last book I finished was The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. I guess that’s what this question is asking? Or if “newest” means newest publication date… then The Blood Prince by Josie Jaffrey.

Favorite author?

I don’t have one! I like way too many authors to choose.

Buying books or borrowing books?

Buying for sure. I love utilizing the library but I’m also one of those people that wants to own every single book that I’ve ever enjoyed.

A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

There are so many. A huge one that shocks most people is Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia (I don’t hate it… I just didn’t like it. Don’t come for me)

Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Try as I might to use bookmarks, I’m a dog-ear person.

A book you can always re-read?

Looking for Alaska, or the Private series by Kate Brian.

Can you read while hearing music?

Sure, but I’d rather not.

One POV or multiple POVs?

I find that enjoy one POV books more often than books with multiples. I don’t really see any reasoning behind it, but it is what it is.

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

That completely depends on the book and how entranced I am by it! Books that put me in reading slumps can take a week to finish, but one’s that I’m obsessed with can be completed in a couple hours.

Do we have any similar answers? Talk to me (:

    1. 😂😂 I loved this reaction to cliff hangers!! I tend to read books in a series one right after the other so I don’t often have a big issue with them. If I was still waiting for the second (or third or fourth, etc) to come out though, I would definitely agree with you! And yes, 18 is just SO many.. I feel like it’s because the TV show did so well that Sheppard felt like she could really capitalize off of the books as well lol

      1. Cliffhangers are the WORST. I actually avoided reading series altogether until all the books were out until a year ago because I hate waiting, but now I don’t do that. And yea maybe. DID YOU SEE THE TRAILER FOR A NEW PLL SPINOFF THING!? I about died when I saw Ali and Mona’s face on a thing
