So if you’ve been around for a while now, I’m hoping that you already know how very irresponsible I get with tags even though I get so honoured when I do get tagged.
It’s an issue– I’m working on it.
Pausing the blabber now, I’d like to thank the wonderful, most gracious and awesome blogger from Train of Thoughts for tagging me, and I apologise (greatly) for taking so long to do it. But hear this, ladies and gentlemen: that girl’s blog is just one of the most fantastic ones I’ve ever come across. It’s so organised, pretty and professional– I truly look up to her for it. So do check it out; it’s epic.
Also, the tag was originally created by Ayunda @Tea and Paperbacks.
Now onto the rules of the tag:
- Mention the creator of the tag;
- Thank the blogger who tagged you;
- Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to;
- Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!
Two of these are done. The questions?
- Reading on the couch or on the bed?
Uhhh.. That’s a tough one. I’d read anywhere as long as my book’s in my hand.. but I guess I read more on bed since it’s where I get my free time (don’t tell my mum– I’m normally supposed to be asleep).
2. Male main character or female main character?
As a wise man once said, (aka my father) gender doesn’t really matter. Males have certain ways to view things and so do females; and it’s refreshing seeing either on my pages.
3. Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
See, I’m a weird person (surprise, surprise). Where people normally eat sweets to stop getting dizzy, I eat them and get dizzy. It’s weird, I know. Therefore, I’d go with salty– even though I normally don’t eat while reading to prevent getting any crumbs on my book.
4. Trilogies or quartets?
Quartets since I like stories lasting for a while.
5. First person point of view or third person point of view?
I read more third than first (I like the first POVs though). Also, I write in third. I like it because it’s a greater scope on things and normally more descriptive.
6. Reading at night or in the morning?
Whenever I’m free, basically. Which is mostly at night.
7. Libraries or bookstores?
Remember the bit where I said I was weird? Amplify that, please.
You see, I get too attached to books. So attached that I actually don’t like giving them away once I have them. Therefore, I don’t borrow books– nor from friends, family or libraries. So bookstores it is.
8. Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
I don’t normally laugh out loud with books; I just smile, grin or just chuckle. But books making me cry? Hell, there’s a whole list of that. So I go for crying because that’s one of the prominent evidences that books do make you feel something.
9. Black book covers or white book covers?
That’s one weird question. Twilight has both a black and a white edition– did the content change? Uh, no. As long as the book’s worth it, I’m in– all colourful spectrums aside.
10. Character driven or plot driven stories?
Er.. both? I mean, a story is made of both plot and character.. so I guess it’d be incomplete if one dominates the other. *shrugs* Don’t take my word for it, though.
I’ll nominate five and the rest? If you’re reading this, have a blog and want to do it, just comment below and I’ll love to check it out!
I’m going to have to search for more book-lovers out there in the near future; but until then, I hope you all enjoyed my bookish rant and have a great day ahead of you 🙂
