Would You Rather? Book Edition

Hi guys! So I've been having a weird couple of weeks, with being ill and just lots going on, so I've somewhat neglected my blog. I'm (hopefully) back to posting twice-weekly, and thought I'd start it off with a nice little book related post. It's the Would You Rather? book edition, which I found on Aoife's blog!

1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?

This is a really tough one, because I absolutely love finishing a book and then getting to read what happens to the characters in it next. At the same time, sometimes sequels can ruin the trilogy for me, and there are lots of incredible books that don't have sequels, that I'd miss out on if I'd only read trilogies. I think because of that I'm going to have to say stand alones.

2. Read only male or female authors?

This is also a tough one, because truthfully I've read a lot more by female authors than male. I have read some incredible books by male authors, but I think all of my favourite authors are female so I'm going to go for that answer. I also love strong female characters in books, and hands down think they're written better when written by females, so that's another reason for that choice.

3. Shop at book shops or Amazon?

It saddens me to say, but I do get a lot of my books at Amazon. For me it's a lot more convenient, because I live in the middle of nowhere and don't have easy access to a book shop. In the future I'd love to be able to shop at book shops more, as I love the instant access to books, as well as being able to feel them (and smell them!) so I'm going to say shop only at book shops.

4. All books become films or TV shows?

TV shows, hands down. As great as some films are, there's no way that they can ever compare with books, due to it often being 300 odd pages of story being squeezed into 90 minutes. I think if I could watch all of my favourite books as TV series, I'd be in heaven.

5. Read five pages a day or five books a week?

I have a feeling this is probably the unpopular answer to this question, but I'm going to say five books a week. The thought of only reading five books a year at five pages a day saddens me. I'm already on book seven of the year, and although I'm currently reading one a week, I don't think five in a week would be too bad!

6. Be a professional reviewer or author?

Definitely an author. I want to eventually write a book, and the only thing stopping me at the moment is having the ideas for one. I do think being a professional reviewer would be great too though, and love getting books to read and review.

7. Only read your top 20 books, or only ever read new books?

I'm going to say new books. I love re-reading books, especially my favourites, but the thoughts of only reading those 20 for the rest of my life is horrible. I feel like I'd get to a stage of being bored of them, and don't want that!

8. Be a librarian or a book seller?

I think I'm going to say a book seller. I love going into a book shop to browse and buy, so think it'd be super fun to be surrounded by people doing that daily.

9. Only read your favourite genre, or read every genre except your favourite?

My favourite, definitely. It's my favourite for a reason and there are so many books both written and yet to come of that genre, that I don't think I'll ever get bored.

10. Only read physical books or only read e-books?

This is an easy one. Definitely physical books. I have an e-reader, and do read some books on it but I would also pick the physical book over my e-reader. I just love being able to actually turn the pages, and an e-reader just doesn't compare.

I hope you enjoyed my answers! If you answer them yourself, then please send your answers my way, as I'd love to know!
