1. How many books is too many books in a book series?
It really depends on the series, in my opinion. I won’t complain about the Harry Potter series being seven books long, but on average, I definitely tend to prefer duologies and trilogies. I’m actually really bad at continuing series unless I’m really invested in them; I mainly read standalones.
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I think if it’s done well, a cliffhanger can be amazing. I absolutely hate cliffhangers though when the entire book is building up to an event or a reveal, yet it ends in a cliffhanger and we have to read the next book to found out what the entire first book was about. That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t like Three Dark Crowns.
3. Hardcopy or paperback?
Aesthetically I prefer hardcovers. But because of the pain in my wrist, paperbacks are easier to read. Nonetheless I keep buying hardbacks instead because they’re sturdier and look better on my shelves 🙂
4. Favourite book?
It’s incredibly hard for me to choose a favourite book, but Everything I Never Told You was definitely the best book I read in 2017! The funny thing is though that I can’t really explain why I love it!
5. Least favourite book?
One of the worst “books” I have ever read was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I get a smile on my face whenever I think of this book because I can’t believe it exists, it’s so bad!!!
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
I’m not a big fan of romances to begin with, so I’d have to say no. It can be done really well though, but more often than not, I think they’re predictable, unrealistic and add unnecessary drama.
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
I sadly had to DNF This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America because the descriptions of sex and pornography in particular were too triggering for me.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
It wasn’t a recommendation because I haven’t read the Fifth Season myself yet, but I suggested to my sister to check this out because I think she’s going to love this. Sadly though, she hasn’t read a book in over a year, so I doubt she’ll listen to me.
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
Classics aren’t my cup of tea, so I haven’t read a ton of old books. I read Romeo & Juliet in Dutch when I was a teenager, which was apparently published in 1597.
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
I got an e-ARC of Like Vanessa which is set to be released on March 13th. I read it a couple of weeks ago and you can read my review here.
12. Favourite author?
There are many authors I absolutely adore, but I think Celeste Ng and Becky Albertalli are my favourites!
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
I would like to borrow more books from the library, but their collection of English books isn’t superb. Additionally, as a mood reader, I don’t like the pressure of having to read a book by a certain time. I am trying to focus on my physical TBR at the moment before I borrow more books from the library, so I guess you can say that I definitely tend to buy books instead of borrow them, but I’m working on it.
14. A book you dislike that everyone else seem to love?
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is such a popular classic, but the book didn’t make any sense to me, and not in an interesting or good way. I didn’t hate Station Eleven, but I don’t really understand why so many people love it. I feel like I read a different book than them.
15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?
I own so many bookmarks (thanks @ Book Depository!) so I don’t need to dog-ear my pages.
16. A book you can always reread?
It’s a cliché answer, but I’m going for Harry Potter. No matter how many times I re-read the series, there are always some details I forget because I tend to remember films more clearly.
17. Can you read while hearing music?
Not really, I can’t even write blog posts while someone is singing. The only type of music I could listen to while reading is instrumental, on low volume.
18. One POV or multiple POV’s?
This really depends on the story, but I really like multiple POVs! I prefer that over a book with a protagonists I can’t stand…
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
I have a lot of time on my hands these days, but I can’t sit down and read all day long. Not because I don’t want to, but because it’s actually really painful for me to sit or lay down for that long. I am still trying to figure out a more comfortable reading position, but it’s because of my disability,so it’s not something I can fix. Anyway, yes, it takes me several days to finish a book.
