I got tagged! (kind of) They tagged everyone, and since I’m one then I was officially tagged
Let me have this
No rules, just straight to the questions!
1.What do you look for most when you pick up a book? A) A beautiful writing style B) A character driven story C) A plot driven story
Depends on the genre. When I read a fantasy book I want it to have a plot driven story. Contemporaries are mainly for character driven plots. A beautiful writing style helps in any genre but especially in magical realism.
2.What are your pet peeves in books?
Predictable outcomes. I just can’t be reading a book and know exactly what’s going to happen at all times. I can know the good one are gonna win or that there’s going to be a big fight, I’m talking about guessing 99% of the book with no twists happening.
3. If you could print one quote on your wall, which one would it be?
“Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you weren’t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.”
― Leigh Bardugo,
4. Which genre would you like to explore more?
I’d like to get more into science fiction. I’ve
5. Was there ever a movie adaptation you liked better than the book?
I’m not big on movies, my attention span isn’t that great when it’s not about books.
6. If one of your favorite books would be adapted or get a new adaptation, which book would it be and which role would you like to play?
I need a full on 5 seasons, netflix series… I don’t even care who I’d be, you could put me as waffle seller #2 and you’d see me in a corner fangirling over my girl Inej
7. A hyped book you wouldn’t recommend at all?
You know how I talked about predictability to the point of boredom on question 2? This is what I was thinking about. More details on the review
8. A book that highly influenced your life and way of thinking?
I’m sure there are quite a few but I can’t think of any right now…
9. Are you a fan of re-reading books, do you do it often?
Not really. Once I read a book, that’s it, I read it. I prefer to try and make it through my TBR. In the few occasions I’ve re-read something it was in a different format (audiobook, graphic novel, things like that) to give it a new feel.
10. Which book title could easily be the title of your life?
11. Which book should be required reading for everyone?
Here I have to agree with AlexandraReads, I think THUG is a book you should read no matter your situation (as long as it doesn’t trigger you). It’s so relevant to everything that’s happening, and not only in the US, but it can also relate to the rampant racism in other countries. I’m from Argentina and this book still shook me, here are my thoughts right after I finished it.
