I was recently browsing through posts on my reader, one thing led to another and was on the 20 Questions tag post by Priyasha. Went through the first two questions before deciding to do the 20 questions tag myself. Here is the link to her post. Do check it out!
So here we go..
1. How many books is too many in a series?
I don’t think there can ever be too many. If you ever feel that there is too many, probably then the series is not that great as you think it is.
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
Er, love them! Doesn’t that leave a lot of opportunities to our imaginations?
3. Hardback or Paperback?
My regular materials can be paperback but I love having a copy of my favorites in hardback.
4. Favorite book?
I can never answer a “favorite” question ever. But off the top of my mind, Catch -22 & The Enchantress of Florence. Oh oh, The Twentieth Wife by Indu Sundaresan as well.
5. Least Favorite book?
I leave them half way so wouldn’t be fair to make a judgement as I never quite did complete it.
6. Love Triangles, yes or no?
Very neutral on this. I don’t think I care much.
7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?
Those in Peril by Wilbur Smith. I felt cheated by this book. This was not the Wilbur Smith that I loved reading.
8. A book you’re currently reading?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
9. The last book you recommended to someone?
Because when I write reviews , I am basically recommending books so it has to be Smoke Thieves by Sally Green. Here is a link to my review. I have mixed feelings about it because it was so so long and tedious to read at times, but the book managed to improve at the last parts.
10. The oldest book you’ve read?
Sense and Sensibility written by Jane Austen. Second oldest will be Pride and Prejudice ( written by the same author) , which was published in 1813.Photo Credit
11. Newest book you’ve read?
Smoke Thieves by Sally Green.
12. Favorite Author?
13. Buying books or borrowing books?
Borrowing because it enables one to enjoy hidden gems and read more books in general. Also, I can’t really buy many books because they are so expensive.
14. A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?
I don’t normally hate books, but I couldn’t really connect with We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I just didn’t enjoy reading it.
15. Bookmarks or dog ears?
16. A book you can always re-read?
I guess any books by Salman Rushdie or Gabriel Garcia. Magical Realism, much?
17. Can you read while listening to music?
Of course, I can zone out the music to the background and continue with my reading.
18. One POV or multiple POVs? (POV = point of view)
Multiple POV’s actually makes the books and the story telling very interesting.
19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?
While I’d love it, reading in one sitting is just not possible for me as something or the other always comes up that takes me away from my magical world.
20. A book you’ve read because of the cover?
Can’t quite remember the titles but there are many that I picked up from Bookstores just because the cover led me to a blurb that sold me on the book
