This or That book tag


Thank you to Reg @ She Latitude for tagging me! I saw this tag going around, and it’s quite fun, so I’m glad it got to me! Check out Reg – her blog is awesome!

The Rules

  1. Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
  2. Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  3. 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.
  4. Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!

One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?

Couch. I do read in both places, but I prefer the couch.

Two: Male main character or female main character?

Male, simply because I think I read more books with male protagonists. Though when a really strong, complex female main character comes along, I am that much more pleased since that’s out of my norm (unfortunately).

Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Sweet, because I like to drink tea if I’m reading and snacking, and sweets go so much better with tea! Also, I usually only eat small portions of sweet snacks; if I ate salty snacks while I read, I would end up eating the whole box.

Four: Trilogies or quartets?

Hmmm, this one is hard because I have no strong preference. I’ll go with trilogies.

Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?

Third. I find that narrative style is much more varied and interesting with third person narration, and good prose is very important to me. I also enjoy getting a broad view of things.

Six: Reading at night or in the morning?

At night, because I am a zombie woman in the mornings and only have brains enough to move my limbs through the actions of my morning routine – though weekend reading in the mornings is nice!

Seven: Libraries or bookstores?

Libraries. There’s not as much pressure because you aren’t spending money. You can sit there for hours without feeling judged. (Though this was a really tough one because I adore bookstores. Pretty books to take home and fill my shelves and keep forever and ever! Consumerism!)

Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

Laugh. I feel like it’s easier to write something sad than something incredibly laugh-out-loud funny. If a book makes me laugh a lot, it becomes one of my favorites.

Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?

White, just because they stand out more to me and look all clean and shiny and pretty.

Ten: Character-driven or plot-driven stories?

Character-driven all the way. If I don’t feel like the characters are three dimensional, I won’t care what happens to them in the plot. Even if very little happens in the book, I love being gripped by well-crafted characters.

I’m tagging:

I’m only tagging 5 people because I’m a loose cannon blogger who doesn’t play by the rules.

  1. Haha, I’m exactly like you with reading in the morning. I’m SO NOT a morning person, waking up for work every day actually kind of hurts me sometimes even though it’s not really that early. The only way I could realistically ‘read’ a book in the morning is by listening to an audiobook, and my commute’s really short, usually not enough time to get into a book. 😛
