Rapid Fire Book Tag

A book tag that has been doing the rounds on YouTube is the Rapid Fire Book Tag which was created by Kate at GirlReading and it is one that I really enjoy watching so wanted to answer the questions myself. Without further ado, let's get started...


- E-Book or Physical Book? 

Physical Book. But I like E-Books because I tend to read them quicker than paperbacks. 


- Paperback or Hardback?


Paperback because they are just easier to read than a hardback. 


- Online or In-Store Book Shopping?


Both because you can get cheap books online and in store. 


- Trilogies or Series?


Trilogies because I am really terrible at completing series in general so series are just too long. 


- Heroes or Villains?


Heroes because I have never been a fan of villains they are evil for a reason.


- A book you want everyone to read?


The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and StoriesThe Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan because it is a great book but not many people have read it. 














- Recommend an underrated book?

Radio SilenceRadio Silence by Alice Oseman. Just a great diverse book.















- The last book you finished?


The Memory BookThe Memory Book by Lara Avery which is a really good but heartbreaking book already out in America but not in the UK until 2017.












- The Last Book You Bought? 

BlameBlame by Simon Mayo? I don't know it has been a while since I brought a book as I have been on a book buying ban. 














- Weirdest Thing You've Used as a Bookmark?

I often use my own arm as a bookmark so probably that.



- Used Books: Yes or No?


YES! Not all of us can buy books full price. 


- Top Three Favourite Genres?


Contemporary, Fantasy, Dystopia 


- Borrow or Buy?


Buy. I used to have a great library near me but I tried to go to my local library and it is not that good...


- Characters or Plot?

I often feel like characters make a bad plot better so characters.


- Long or Short Books?

Short books because they are fast to read and often get you out of a book slump. 

- Long or Short Chapters?

Short Chapters because they make me feel like I am reading faster and I just like them. 

- Name The First Three Books You Think Of...

The Maze Runner, Am I Normal Yet?, Twilight

- Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?

Books That Make Me Laugh as a book has never made me cry.

- Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Books with fictional worlds set in our world.

- Audiobooks: Yes or No?

I have not really tried to listen to audiobooks so No I guess. 

- Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?

I want to say No but I guess we all do from time to time!

- Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations? 

Book To Movie because out of the two they just tend to be better.

- A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book? 

The Spectacular Now

- Series or Standalone's? 

Standalones as like previously said I am terrible at series.

So that was the Rapid Fire Book Tag. If you want to do this tag, then I tag you to do. 

See you soon, 

Amy

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
