Welcome to today’s Tag Thursday, featuring the This or That Book Tag. Also known as the tag where I give lots of vague answers because I’m terrible at choosing things.
Not sure who originally created this tag, so if you know comment below!
Physical Copy Or E-book?
Great, an easy one to start with! Definitely physical copy. I love everything about actual books: the feeling, the smell, the actual reading. I would only go with e-books if I go on holiday and have a weight limit for my luggage (and even then I might take a few less clothes so I can take an extra book. You just never know!)
Audiobook Or Book In Hand?
Again, easy! Definitely book in hand! Though I would like to try some more audiobooks.
Paperback Or Hardcover?
Hardcover! They’re so pretty and you don’t have to worry about breaking the spine while reading .
Adult Or Young Adult?
Eh, depends on the mood. I’m currently reading a lot of young adult, but honestly I like both equally so don’t make me choose.
Series Or Standalone?
Series! I love binge-reading series. Though sometimes I feel like a series could have just been one big standalone…
Dog-Ears Or Bookmarks?
Bookmarks! Who dog-ears their books? What kind of monster are you?
Borrow Or Buy?
Buy. I like having a selection of books to choose from and I like just having a little library to look at. Also borrowing books puts me under time pressure because I want to be able to return the book quickly and because I’m a big mood reader I may not always be able to.
Bookstore Or Online?
Um. Both? Bookstore for the feeling of browsing, online for the actual book buying (because most books I want I don’t find in our Belgian bookstores).
Fiction Or Non-Fiction?
Fiction all the way!
Fantasy World Or Real Life Issues?
Fantasy world. I can have real life issues in real life, so I want fantasy in my books!
Monster Read Or Short + Sweet?
Depending on the mood. Monster read when I want to get really immersed in another world, short and sweet for summer reads or book hangover cures.
Starry-Eyed Romance Or Full Of Action?
I need both in perfect balance in my books! I’m a romance girl but I can’t take too much of it either – I need it tempered with some fast-paced action scenes.
Curl Up With A Blanket Or Bathe In The Sun?
Curl up with a blanket, unless the sun is shining. I don’t often have the chance in Belgium to sit and read outside so when I have the opportunity I will take it. But I love the comfiness of curling up with a blanket and a good book.
Read The Review Or Decide For Yourself?
Both, if that’s possible? I love reading reviews, but if the synopsis speaks to me I will read the book anyway, even if the reviews are not that good.
Zombies Or Unicorns?
Unicorns! Magic and fantasy beat horror and fear any time.
