Tag Thursday: This or That Book Tag

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.

I tag you! What choices would you make?


  1. With you on the bookstore/online thing. I love going to them, but they never have anything I want in my town so I’m so grateful for the online shopping world, haha. I feel the same way about reviews! I love them reading them, but I rarely let them influence my decision (especially to not read, a lot of reviews help convince me to read)!

    Also, I don’t think I’ve been getting notifications of your replies to my comments on your posts so I’m really sorry if I’ve been accidentally ignoring you!!

    1. Yes, I love reading all these books so much and my life would be so different if I wouldn’t be able to read them thanks to online shopping 🙂

      No worries, you haven’t been ignoring me, thank you for commenting! 🙂 I’m still figuring out all this WordPress stuff so maybe I need to check some option somewhere so people get notifications when I reply… or maybe it depends on the theme… I don’t know but I’ll figure it out 🙂

      1. Getting book mail is also super fun and I get way too excited, haha!

        Ah, that’s okay!! I realised that if I subscribe to the posts I’ll get notifications, so I can just do that 🙂
