The Rapid Fire Book Tag + Happy Birthday to me!

Hello readers! I’m back today with a new post because today is my birthday!! I will thank Soph @BookBlog&Candle for the tag!

Sorry for the lack of posts this month, I’m constantly worried about the health of one of my cats, Gomez. Now he’s slowly improving, we pray for the better.

 

E-Book or Physical Book?

Physical!! I like e-books because they don’t take up a lot of space, and when I finished or DNF and e-book I can simply delete it, but I’m frustrated when I want to read and I forgot to recharge the battery.

Paperback or Hardback?

Totally agree with Soph here, I’m a paperback girl! Hardback books are difficult for me to carry with me and to handle them in my hands.

Online or In-Store Book Shopping?

Online when I made shopping from my country, because 85% of my books are in English, and I live in Italy, so the bookshops/bookstores don’t sell English books here.

When I am on holidays, usually in the U.K., I love to visit every bookshop/Waterstones /charity shop I can find.

Trilogies or Series?

Uhm, it depends… This time I will say series, because my favourite series, like The Ministry of Curiosities or Harry Potter are composed of more than 5 books.

Heroes or Villains?

A great hero against a great and complex villain. But I prefer the villain. (And they slowly fell in love)

A book you want everyone to read?

The nowhere emporium because it’s so underrated but it was just magical to read it, you really fell to be in the emporium. I love it so much.

Recommend an underrated book?

I read a lot of underrated booksXD (and then her mind goes puff, totally blank) Constable & Toop is really underrated, but recently it goes to reprint, so now you can easily find it on Amazon or Book Depository!!

The last book you finished?

Paved with good intentions by Keith Durrell.

The Last Book You Bought?

Creatures of Will and Temper and I’m totally in love with the cover!!

Weirdest Thing Youโ€™ve Used as a Bookmark?

An oven mitt. I was cooking.

Used Books: Yes or No?

Yes, they are cheaper! But they need to be in excellent/good condition, not covered with highlighter or drawings or missing pages.

Top Three Favoriteย Genres?

Historical fiction

Gothic

Steampunk

Borrow or Buy?

Buy! I don’t use the library, and I don’t have friends to borrow books from.

Characters or Plot?

Plot. I love when I can connect to a character, or when there is a great cast of characters, but if the plot is boring, I’ll totally lose interest in the book.

Long or Short Books?

Again I agree with Soph: short books! I need time and the right mindset for long books.

Long or Short Chapters?

Short chapters! I usually read in the evening, and my eyes are already tired because I work at the pc all day, so I prefer short chapters.

Name The First Three Books You Think Of:

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Time stops for no mouse by Michael Hoeye

The cure for dreaming by Cat Winters

Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?

Laugh!

Our World or Fictional Worlds?

Fictional worlds! I mean, Middle earth, you know?

Audiobooks: Yes or No?

No: I listen to a couple of audiobooks in Italian, and they were pretty boring, but in general I’m easily distracted or I fell asleep. Shame on me.

Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?

Of course. I’m a really bad person.

Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?

Tv adaptation, I think they have more time and more episode to better develop the story, like Good Omens.

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

The Maze runner. I can’t stand the book, but they made the Maze really well in the movie.

Series or Standalones?

Standalone, if they had a good ending.

 

And that’s the tag, everyone who wants to do it is welcome!
