Another 20 Bookish Question!

I enjoyed the last batch, despite how hard some of the questions ended up being. So here I go for round 2!

Some of these questions are repetitive, sorry, buuuuuuuuuut, some of these have different answers, because it’s too hard to pick just one.

  1. How many books are too many books in a series?

I think as a general rule 6, but I also have favorite fantasy series that are more than 5, so…but I feel like I’m definitely more lenient when it comes to high fantasy.

  1. How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I love them and I hate them. I love them because they keep me engaged and usually means there is more to the story. I hate them for pretty much the same reason because it means I have to wait for the rest of the story.

  1. Hardback or paperback?

 This one’s easy. I prefer hardbacks for my bookshelves, but I prefer paperbacks when reading.

  1. Favorite book?

Agh, so hard. I’m going to give a different answer than the one in my 20 Bookish Questions post, because I don’t think I just have one favorite. Um, I don’t actually know. I feel like I settled when I answered this the last time. I’m gonna go with Eragon because I’m always trying to get people to read it, and it’s what has inspired me to write.

  1. Least favorite book?

Inkheart. I HATED that book. I read like three pages, and I don’t remember the specifics, but oh my god, it just clashed with me. I legit threw it across the room. Was. Not. A. Fan. I wish I could remember exactly why I hated it, but I don’t. I just remember the feeling.

  1. Love triangles, yes or no?

If they actually serve a purpose, I’m not opposed. But to have a love triangle for the sake of teams or whatever, then no.

  1. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

Vampire King by Joanna Mazurkiewicz – its actually been a few months, but I have finished everything since this book. This was a book that Facebook advertised to me and the premise sounded like it would make for a quick enjoyable NA read – Cinderella meet vampires, and oh my god. I couldn’t get past the writing. I found it to be so bad, which was a shame because the synopsis sounded like it would be enjoyable.

  1. A book you’re currently reading?

Allied by Amy Tintera. It’s time to finish this trilogy!

  1. The last book to recommended to someone?

To Kill and Kingdom by Alexandra Christo and Blade & Rose by Miranda Honfluer. I’ve recommended both of these to my friend and she’s currently reading one of them. If you haven’t yet, you should definitely pick these two up!

  1. Oldest book you’ve read? (Pub date)

Oh god. I don’t know. I was an English Major in college – I read some pretty old texts. So let’s just say I’ve read some pretty old books….and wrote research papers on them.

  1. Newest book you’ve read? (pub date)

Easy peasy. Furyborn by Claire Legrand. Which I really enjoyed.

  1. Favorite author?

Toss up between J.K. Rowling (duh) and Christopher Paolini (duh again).

  1. Buying books or borrowing books?

I have this bad habit of buying them and my bank account hates me for it.

  1. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

Ummm, where do I start? Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings…there are probably more, but these are the main ones that come to mind. I didn’t hate these books, but I found them to be VERY disappointing.

  1. Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Bookmarks. Or whatever I can find to mark my page. Though with school texts I wasn’t as picky.

  1. A book you can always reread?

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. No matter how many times I read this book, it always feels like the first time.

  1. Can you read while hearing music?

Nope. Nope. Nope. I can barely even write listening to music. Background noise doesn’t so much bother me, but I can’t be plugged in. I get too distracted.

  1. One POV or multiple POVs? 

Multiple but I do think that there can be too many. * cough * zenith * cough * – though I have nothing against single POV. 

  1. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Both depending on the book. I have read and listened to books in a single day, but there have also been books that have taken me a few days.

  1. Do you like lending your books out?

I’m picky as to who gets to borrow my books, but generally I don’t mind lending them out.
