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

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
