I figured that it would be fun to switch things up and play a little tag game! This tag is originally from a blog called Of Reading and Random Things! Feel free to follow them, and feel free to recommend more games for me to play here!
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading?
My mother always loved reading and kept a lot of books in the house. It was only natural that eventually I was going to love reading. But I bet she never thought that I would grow up to become an author myself.
When do you usually read?
You’ll usually catch me reading fantasy, YA, contemporary, or anything that has a plot that intrigues me!
Do you prefer to read hardcopies or Kindle?
I actually balance both! I prefer reading paperbacks because it’s always great to have an actual book in your hands, smell the ink on the pages, but having a Kindle is great for convenience and having your books on the go all at once rather than having several paperbacks in your bag.
What is your favourite genre?
Oh, definitely fantasy. I love the opportunities and adventures that they bring. I’ve been a fan of magic since I was very young, and to experience those stories brings me joy.
What genre will you not read?
I could never bring myself to read erotica. I’m actually not a fan of any overblown sexual scenes in anything, so to have books solely about it bothers me. On that topic, I could never WRITE sci-fi. It’s a different playing field from fantasy, one that I don’t think I could ever match.
Do you have a favourite author?
Some of my favorites right now include Adelle Yeung, Francesca Zappia, and many more! I don’t think I could ever list just one.
What is the worst book you’ve ever read?
“The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand. It is a pretentious read, long, drawn out, and it is to this day one of the only books that I’ve ever dropped because I couldn’t hook myself to anything between the characters, plot, themes, devices, anything. It is also on record one of the only books to lull me to sleep.
Honorable mentions include: Twilight, To Kill a Mockingbird, Romeo and Juliet, and likely more to come when they may.
What is the biggest book you’ve ever read?
Completed? I would have to say the “Kissed by an Angel” trilogy by Elizabeth Chandler. I want to go back and read them someday to see if I still feel the same way about them as I did back then, because I did like the saga.
What was the last book you bought?
The last book I bought was “The Letter Mage: The First Quarto” by Alexandra Penn, an Indie author friend of mine! I’m really excited to pick it up, and you can pick it up here to read on a lunch break: The Letter Mage Book One
Which do you prefer: library books or buying books?
I prefer to buy books, because that way if I like them, I never have to worry about returning them! Plus, it’s a good way to support the author.
What are you reading now?
Right now, I’m reading “The Mad King” by Jovee Winters, “Eliza and Her Monsters” by Francesca Zappia, and, well, my long list of works to edit for myself.
What are the disadvantages of being a book lover?
For me, it jumps between being too broke/working on budget to buy the books that I want as well as being too busy being an author to properly sit down and read.
What a life. Whaaaat a life.
