Top 20 Question Book Tag

I found this tag over at Mary and the Words.

How many books are too many for a series? In my opinion, it depends on the series- meaning how many books would be able to tell the entire series. Yes, I read long series- Avalon, Sister’s Grimm, Land of Stories, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter and the Original Percy Jackson in the past.

Now I am reading mostly trilogies. Yes, the TBR list consists of two long series- Heroes of Olympus and Nevermoor, but Nevermoor can easily be split up into three trilogies- that is what I heard.

How do you feel about cliff-hangers? I love cliff-hangers, which is where plot twists and the end of a novel in the middle of a series.

Hardcover or paperback? Paperback. Much easier to read and takes up less space.

Favorite book? Seriously? I don’t think I would be able to choose.

Least favorite book? Will write a list of some of them

  1. Anna Karenina
  2. Uncle Tom’s Cabin
  3. Romeo and Juliet
  4. Macbeth
  5. Julius Caesar
  6. The Great Gatsby
  7. Of Mice and Men
  8. The Giver
  9. Lord of the Flies

You have to remember that most of these were read in high school. I was so close-minded to tragedies in high school.

Love triangles, yes or no? Maybe

The most recent book you couldn’t finish? Never did this

A book you’re currently reading?– I can list two. The Yellow-Painted Bookstore and Starless Sea

Last book you recommended to someone? Hmmm. Don’t know which one. Usually don’t recommend books to people.

Oldest book you’ve read by publication date? Thinking either The Iliad or the Odyssey

Newest book you’ve read by publication date? Honestly, don’t know

Favorite author? I don’t have a favorite author- there are multiple I love

Buying books or borrowing books? Prefer buying books

A book you dislike that everyone seems to love? Hunger Games or Twilight or Peculiar Children

Bookmarks or dog-ears? Bookmarks

A book you can always reread? I am not someone who usually rereads books. The first time I reread a book belonged to this year.

Can you read while listening to music? No, I can’t.

One POV or multiple?-Usually prefer one point of view.

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

  1. Looks like this was a fun tag! Here are my answers:
    1) Personally, I prefer for series to be 4 books or less. When a series has more than 7-8 books, I tend to get intimidated, particularly if I know that not all of the books have been released yet.
    2) I like cliffhangers, so long as I know that there’s more of the series to come!
    3) Paperbacks.
    4) Mm. It’s a tough pick, for sure… I don’t know if any one particular book comes to mind.
    5) It’s probably not a definitive least favorite, but I didn’t like Hamlet, particularly when I read it back in high school. I read it again recently, for a class I was taking and it was a little better that time around. Still, I just find it very frustrating.
    6) I don’t hate love triangles, but don’t necessarily love them. I’d say that there’s a handful of love triangles I like and/or don’t mind, and that’s probably about it.
    7) Maybe The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I did, technically, DNF it, but I also do intend to come back to it. I just haven’t finished it at this point. Hopefully I’ll give it another try soon.
    8) Well, I’m not actively reading any novels right now. I’ve kind of put that on hold due to school. I am making my way through a few different books, though–I’ve just had to set them aside for a little while. One is Henry James’s The Ambassadors. Haven’t gotten very far into it, but we’ll see how it goes!
    9) I recommended the Sabriel trilogy to my brother!
    10) I agree; probably The Iliad or The Odyssey for me, as well.
    11) I think that would probably be Harbor for the Nightingale by Kathleen Baldwin.
    12) I don’t think I have a definitive favorite, but Georgette Heyer and Oscar Wilde are strong contenders.
    13) I prefer to buy, but it depends on the book!
    14) Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. Just couldn’t get into it, personally.
    15) It kind of depends on the book. If it’s a textbook or a book I’m reading for school, probably dog ears since I usually need to mark more than one page, and I just don’t have enough bookmarks to go around. Otherwise, bookmarks.
    16) There are several, since I love rereads. Anything I’ve read by Georgette Heyer is something I love to reread. I love rereading Harry Potter. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende is a favorite reread as well. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. Those are probably my most reread books.
    17) I think I probably typically listen to music while reading. It just, for whatever reason, makes me more likely to retain attention for longer bursts of time.
    18) When I was younger, I probably preferred multiple. Now, I think one is better (most of the time).
    19) Most of the time, it’s multiple days. Occasionally, I’ll read something in one-sitting, and that’s always fun, too.
