I never got tagged to do this, but I saw in on The Bookynista and thought it looked like a lot of fun. Anyway, here I go.
1. Read only series or standalone?
I think I’d have to go with series. My reason being that I like to read a lot of dystopian and fantasy young adult books, and those are almost always series. Like I can’t think of a fantasy or dystopian I really love that isn’t part of a series. I just don’t think I could go without those genres. Now, I also love contemporaries. My love for young adult started from reading contemporaries. While a lot are standalone, there are a couple contemporary series out there like Anna and the French Kiss and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
2. Read only female or male authors?
I personally don’t care about gender of an author. I am going to pick female, just because I feel like a majority of young adult books are written by female authors.
3. Shop at Barnes and Nobles or Amazon?
As a writing and publishing student people at my school hate me for saying this, but I love Amazon. Yes, I know they don’t pay the authors enough, but I am a poor college student who loves books and two-day shipping. Honestly, I wouldn’t be able to buy the amount of books I do if I got them for twenty-dollars each at Barnes and Nobles.
4. All books becomes movies or television shows?
I’m going to say movies because a lot of books I feel like wouldn’t make it as television shows. Television shows have a lot of episodes and go on for multiple seasons—if they’re good—and while good books are detailed I don’t think there’s enough in a lot of them for a show.
5. Read five pages a day or five books per week?
Obviously five books per week. I could never just read five pages in one sitting. I was reading close to five books per week at points this summer, but now that I have school I can see that number dwindling down.
6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
I’m going to school for fiction writing with the hope to one day be a young adult contemporary author. That is the dream, but being a professional reviewer wouldn’t be a bad gig either.
7. Only read your top twenty books over and over or always read new books that you haven’t read before?
I would decide to always read new books. Amazing new books are always coming out, I could forfeit rereading my favorites for the chance to discover lovely new worlds, characters, and stories.
8. Be a librarian or a bookseller?
I think a librarian. That would mean I get to sit and read a lot, right? Like I’d have to read a lot in order to be able to recommend books. And I’d always be surrounded by shelves and shelves of books—the dream people.
9. Only read your favorite genre or every genre except your favorite?
I’m not ready to pick a favorite genre at the moment—constantly bouncing between contemporary, fantasy, and dystopian—but I think I’d rather just pick one genre I love and read it all the time. I mean there’s a reason I love those genres.
10. Only read physical books or ebooks?
I understand that ebooks are super convenient—I live in the city and take the train, ebooks are like super convenient. But, I would pick reading physical books only over ebooks any day. There’s just something about owning a good book and holding it in your hand.
I’m also opening this to ANYONE who’s read it and wants to do it.
