1. Reading on the couch or on the bed?
Hmm, I don’t really have a preference. I tend to fall asleep either way so I suppose bed is better!
2. Male main character or female main character?
Again, it won’t affect the appeal of the book either way for me, but I did a brief count of my ‘read’ books on Goodreads and most of them seem to have male protagonists. I think is more down to the publishing industry than my personal taste though! If I absolutely have to choose, though (and I do always try to give a clear answer to these), I’ll go with males purely for the fact that the main characters of most of my all-time favourite books are male.
3. Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
I have a massive sweet tooth!
4. Trilogies or quartets?
Generally I prefer a trilogy because it’s less intimidating when you start reading, but it really depends on the series. Like, I really don’t think The Hunger Games would need a fourth book, but I will beg for more Potter books until the day I die.
5. First-person point of view or third-person point of view?
I have read a lot of good books written in first-person but I prefer the more traditional third-person viewpoint.
6. Reading at night or in the morning?
I never realised this before but I think I enjoy reading more in the morning, despite not being a morning person at all. I always get really into my book on the way to work (which is really annoying because then I have to put it away and wait until lunchtime to carry on reading, but by that time I’m normally too tired and take a nap instead.) (Yes, I nap at my desk. It’s the source of much amusement for my coworkers.)
7. Libraries or bookstores?
Definitely bookstores! I loved the library as a child but I feel like they have such little choice for adults. And the people who work there don’t seem to resent the fact that they’re there, which makes me hate them a little since THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY BOOKS FOR THEIR JOB.
8. Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
I love a good cry! That’s how you can tell I’ve enjoyed something – if I’m in tears by the end of it. I don’t cry at books as much as I do at films or stage shows, but I do have the odd breakdown over words on a page.
9. Black book covers or white book covers?
I have more white book covers but prefer the way black ones look on my shelves.
10. Character-driven or plot-driven stories?
It really depends on the story! But generally I probably prefer plot-driven since I love real page-turner, and you don’t really get that urge to keep reading and reading when it’s character-driven. (Or not so often, at least.)
Sorry if any of you have done this already! Thanks for stopping by!
