Rapid fire book tag

Hi everyone! So I saw this post originally on the bibliophile girl and I thought it was such a good idea as I am really into books and it seems like a fun tag! I totally tag anyone who wants to do it then selves!!

E-book or physical book? – Physical book always. Nothing can compare to the feeling of a proper book. I have read ebooks in the past and I even got a kindle but it just didn’t do it for me

Paperback or hardback? – Most of the time I buy paperback but I’m not opposed to hardbacks, the only thing I hate about some hardbacks is the sleeve some come in because it gets really annoying

Online or in-store book shopping? I love to buy books in store when I can but just because of the convenience I’ll usually buy online and most of the time the prices are cheaper online

Trilogies or series? – I’ve read a bit of both and I love both so honestly I can’t say either one…

Heroes or Villians? – Heroes because they’re heroes. However, it depends on the book because I have read books with interesting villians

A book you want everyone to read? – We are all completely beside ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler! It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read!!

Recommend an underrated author? – Jandy Nelson is someone you don’t hear a lot of talk about but she has written some amazing books! She wrote I’ll give you the sun and the sky is everywhere

The last book you finished? – Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets

Weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookmark? – I don’t think I have used anything particularly weird as a bookmark..

Used books: Yes or no? – Not often as I love new books a bit too much. If I did they would have to be in a decent condition

Top three favourite genres? – YA, fantasy and thriller

Borrow or buy? – Always buy, I do borrow books occasionally but I just prefer the book to be mine

Character or plot? – Characters because they are what makes the plot, not the other way round

Long or short books? – Long books because I like something I can get into, not something that ends before it really begins

Name the first three books you think of – The Art of how to be normal, The Perks of being a wallflower and Wicked

Books that make you laugh or cry? – A bit of both…although even if a book is quite sad it doesn’t often make me cry

Our world or fictional? – Fictional for sure

Audiobooks: yes or no? – No. I did once try listening to an audiobook and although it is an interesting experience and actually quite good if you struggle to read whilst travelling like myself but I prefer physical books particularly because you can flip back a few pages if you have forgotten what happened once you go back to it.

Do you ever judge a book by its cover? – I do and don’t. Covers usually catch my eye if I’m just browsing but if it’s a book I really want to read I won’t pay too much attention to the cover.

Book to movie or book to tv? – Personally it depends on the books. I couldn’t imagine the Harry Potter books as a TV series likewise I doubt game of thrones would work as films.

A movie or tv show that you preferred to the book? – Honestly there isn’t one! I would say that there have been films that have been as good as the book but I don’t think films could ever be better than the books.

Series or standalones? – A series because it means you don’t have to leave your favourite characters behind but also standalones because it means you don’t have to keep up with the series.

There we have it! I hope you have enjoyed my rapid fire book tag and feel free to do it yourself!

Thanks for reading!

  1. This was fun to read! I totally agree with you that paperbacks are better, and long books, and characters. But I have to say, I adore used books because opening an old book and smelling it is amazing, plus I love to see little annotations/comments from the past readers. I think there’s something comforting about reading something that someone’s already been through, and has passed down to you!


  2. Ohh I have to read We are complitely beside ourselves. I boroowed it from library few months ago, but I had to return it before I read it. 😦
    Ohh, I also prefer paperbacks. 🙂
    Still have to read I’ll Give You the Sun, The Sky Is Everywhere was good!
    I really enjoyed reading this tag. 🙂


  3. This post reminded me that I want to reread the Harry Potter series! It’s been way too long. I like new books for school (well, when I was still in school) because I hated seeing other people’s notes, but some used books are really unique. If they’re musty and crumbly, though, they’re not fun to read.



  4. Absolutely loved reading this. Thank you so much. I think I’m going to have a go at this tag and see what people think. Thank You so much!! 🙂 x


  5. I love this tag! I am obsessed with books too and I am currently reading The order of the phoenix. Isn’t Umbridge the best vilain ever created?! she is so detestable and obnoxious! Also, physical and hardcover for me! and online shopping unfortunately! Great post! xx Corinne from Corinne & Kirsty


  6. Loved this tag! I’m a huge bookworm myself and this post has sparked some ideas for book related posts on my own blog. Again, great job on this tag!❤️


  7. The only adaptation of a book that I liked more than the book was World War Z. The movie was great with zombies that defied the norm – fast and smart – yet the book was a drag. So many people raved to me about how fantastic and innovative it was, but it fell flat for me, which was really disappointing because I’m still waiting on a great zombie book. Book told like interviews? Great concept… but IT FAILED. You knew none of the characters were going to die because THEY WERE IN AN INTERVIEW AFTER THE FACT. I could slaughter that book for hours, lol. It is super frustrating to discover ideas with so much potential, but horrible writing, structure, or characters.
