🍦 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, full of good readings & beautiful moments.❤️ Today is another one of those Fridays where I want to relax and try to continue catching up with my tags & awards! You know that I love spending these moments with you, where we can chat freely about any bookish topic. This time I’ve decided to bring you the This or That book tag, it’s not the first time I do this tag, but I did it in 2017, so I thought OMG, I love this tag, and I need to do it again, I don’t even know if the questions are the same, so I decided to go for it and I hope is a lot of fun. 😄 You know that I would love to know your opinions on each of my choices and to know what you would choose! that’s always a lot of fun.
I’ve been tagged by Riddhi | Whispering Stories | so thank you SO much, you’re amazing, and I’m very excited to do the tag again after so long. Of course, don’t hesitate to visit her blog, it’s wonderful! 🥰
I hope you enjoy reading the post, that you have a relaxed & fun time with me, so prepare a coffee, tea, or whatever your favorite drink is and without further ado, LET’S START! 🍦
🍦 Read on the bed or the couch? 🍦
I actually can do both without problems, but there’s nothing for me like reading in bed with a blanket and a coffee, just perfect. It’s my natural habitat, I swear lol
🍦 Read at night or in the morning? 🍦
Lately, I’ve been reading whenever I have the time lol, so I don’t have the luxury of choice right now, but in a normal less busy month I probably enjoy reading at night more because I feel like it’s more atmospheric and I can concentrate better.
🍦 Male main character or female main character? 🍦
I’ll undoubtedly choose female, I’ve realized as time goes by that I always tend to choose books with main female characters, and it’s not that I don’t like reading a book with a male character like the main one, not at all, but I think so I prefer a female character.
🍦 First person POV or third person POV? 🍦
Well, for this one I have a curiosity to share with you.
When I started reading regularly many many years ago, I used to only read the books that had first-person POV, because there was no way that I could concentrate on third-person POVs, I don’t know why but I just couldn’t, and it was more organic for me to read while the character lived his experiences, you know? But then I grew up, I wanted to expand my world of reading and began to give more possibilities to books told in the third person and so suddenly I fell in love with that POV, as well. And today I really have no problems, I hardly ever notice, maybe I continue to feel that it’s easier for me to read the first person POV, but it’s not something that really prevents my enjoyment.
🍦 Trilogies or quartets? 🍦
Oh, I don’t know, guys! I always think the same, that if I like a book a lot then obviously I wouldn’t mind reading thousands of more books with the same characters, right? But sometimes, I also think that there are stories that are better as stand-alone because sometimes I feel that some ideas are too exploited or some authors delay the end a lot to just sell more books, and I don’t like that very much. I guess I’ll stick with the trilogies, but because I’m more used to reading them, I still think that if you’re going to make a trilogy of your idea, the second book should be as solid as the first one or even more.
🍦 Libraries or bookstore? 🍦
I would love to have the chance to choose, but here where I live in the library there are only textbooks, and there’s a small bookstore, so I will choose that option because it’s the only one valid for me now.
🍦 Books that make you laugh or cry? 🍦
Cry 100% lol, that sounds so sad! Actually, I love when a book gives me all those feelings that I can’t control and I feel like OMG, I LOVE THIS, but at the same time it makes me cry because the story is super emotional and beautiful, well that feeling is the one I love
🍦 Black book covers or white book covers? 🍦
I don’t have a preference here, I think books with black covers look beautiful with other types of colors and textures in the letters, illustrations, and that kind of thing, so I’ll choose that one, but I also like white covers, I just don’t really mind.
🍦 Character-driven or plot-driven? 🍦
Character-driven is perhaps more important to me, although I do appreciate good plot creation, I have to feel something for characters, so I definitely prefer character-driven stories.
I decided to pick some wonderful bookish friends, because I haven’t done it in a long time, but if you’re not tagged and you still feel like doing it, consider yourself tagged by me!! ❤️
