Reading on the couch or on the bed?
While I do love reading in bed, I can pretty much guarantee that I will get through about 2 pages before I’m completely comatose. For this reason, and because I want to actually read more than a page or two at a time, I choose couch … err … um … chair actually. I have this wonderful reading recliner in the corner of my bedroom, right next to my amazing picture windows. This is my reading haven of choice, unless it’s sunny and warm, in which case the hammock chair hanging from the tree in my backyard is where you will find me with a book in my hand.
Male main character or female main character?
I want to say I prefer female main characters, because I can relate (you know … me being a female and all). But I wonder if it is a case of simply having read more books with female main characters by chance/availability? There do seem to be more of them out there in the genres I prefer.
I do have to say that many of my all time favorite books have had male main characters. While many of my all time most hated main characters have been female.
Sweet snacks or salty snacks?
Salty all the way! I have always preferred the savory to the sweet. I would prefer a baked potato over a slick of chocolate cake any day hands down.
Trilogies or quartets?
Of course, it depends on what the story actually requires. But typically I prefer trilogies to longer series. Can I choose duologies? We have certainly seen a rising trend in the two book series and I have to say these might be my favorite. Really cuts out that middle book lull.
First person POV or third POV?
I have read and enjoyed many books in both, but I think I prefer third person POV. I really like to have an overall view of the people and the situations, plus I prefer to have varying points of view. Now if we are talking multiple character first person POV … that may complicate my answer further.
Reading at night or in the morning?
Both! And all day long!
Libraries or bookstores?
Libraries? I love the smell of old books and the library certainly has that added nostalgic factor. Plus they keep me from spending all the money on books.
Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?
Books that make me cry. I love to be shattered by a great book! But let’s be honest, I prefer a book that is able to make me feel all emotions at some point in the story.
Black book covers or white covers?
I love dark stories and I love dark book covers. Also I am a sucker for anything with ravens or crows on the cover.
Character driven or plot driven?
Character driven all the way. I can abide a less than epic plot if I am able to connect with the characters and their relationships. A really awesome plot with characters I have not emotionally adopted, will fare much worse with me.
I will forgo the tagging of others here but encourage everyone to play and post on their own! Enjoy!
