This or That Book Tag

I’m posting every single day in September! Go here to check out everything I’ve talked about so far!

I’ve seen this tag floating around the blogosphere for ages now so I finally decided I’d give it a go. I know this is a pretty simple set of questions, but I hope you guys enjoy my answers anyway!

This tag was originally created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks so definitely go give her some love!


Reading on the couch or on the bed? I’m a person who always reads in bed. Always. I constantly gravitate towards my bed over a couch. I love getting under my blankets with a nice cup of tea and getting all cozy with my book.

Male main character or female main character? Because I am a girl I do find it interesting reading from the male perspective! But if I had the choice, I would probably go for females. I’m all about that girl power!

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading? Salty! I’m definitely a savoury girl. Too much sweets makes me sick but I could eat a never ending bag of chips forever!

Trilogies or quartets? It really does depend on the series that I’m reading. Truthfully I will always prefer a stand alone over a series, but if books are worthy of sequels I’d probably rather quartets – they take longer to finish!!

First person point of view or third person point of view? I feel like I’m the only person around who will say this but…. third. I remember back in 2011 when I started reading The Hunger Games I was literally gobsmacked by the fact that it was in first person. Up until then I had scarcely read any books written in first person and even now I still haven’t quite gotten used to it. I love reading in third person.

Reading at night or in the morning? Even though I can imagine myself being a morning reader – I haven’t progressed that far in my life just yet! I’m definitely a read-before-bed kind of gal. I definitely want to try start reading more first thing in the morning though!

Libraries or bookstores? Bookstores! As much as I love libraries, I can’t help but fall in love with all the new books in a bookshop. I love the smell, I love the options, and I love owning books that are near and dear to my heart.

Books that make you laugh or make you cry? It is pretty hard to find a book that will make me laugh or cry! However I really do enjoy reading comedic memoirs or absolutely heartbreaking books. It’s really hard to pick!

Black book covers or white book covers? I love black because they don’t get as grubby but…. White books (or anything really) always look really new and clean and I love it.

Character driven or plot driven stories? If I could choose both I would but I personally don’t see any point in a plot driven story if the characters aren’t strong, so I will always say characters first.

So that was it! Do you guys agree with what I’ve said or are you the complete opposite? Let me know!! ❁

  1. I prefer third person too. (Having said that, though, some of my all-time favourite books are first person. Normally it’s enough to make me put the book down.)
