This or That Book Tag

A Book Tag Post
Thanks, Ti @Book Chatter, for tapping me for the This Or That Book Tag created by Ayunda @ Tea & Paperbacks!

Here are the Rules:

  1. Mention the creator of the tag
  2. Thank the person who tagged you
  3. Tag other people & spread the love

Reading on the couch or reading in bed?  COUCH!  I have all my favorite pillows and blankets on the couch.  I used to read in bed but then I found it disrupted my sleep too much.  I get up before the sun most days for work, so I need my rest.

Main character: Male or Female?  Either.  I know I’m supposed to pick one, but I love a character with a strong voice.  As long as they have that, I don’t care if they are male or female.

Sweet or salty snacks while reading? Both.  I tend to have to balance out the salty with sweet or sweet with salty.  Can’t have too much of a good thing.

Trilogies or quartets? None.  I hate series.  I get sucked into them regardless.  I find the middle books too long and often just a bunch of set up for the final book.  I think a couplet is all you need.

First Person or Third person POV? I like either, but I tend toward third person more in my reading lately.

Night or morning reader? Night, unless I have a day off.  As you can probably guess, my early morning work hours interfere with morning reading.

Libraries or bookstores? Libraries.  Ours is a bustling hub of activities for my kid, a great place for quiet time in other places, and has a much larger selection of books than the bookstore.

Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry? It’s hard to make me cry, so I’ll say laugh.  I need that positive feeling.

Black or white book covers? None.  I love covers bursting with color.

Character driven or plot driven stories? Character.  Hands down.  Plot just seems so elementary.  We all have plot in our lives.  I want more depth.

The PEOPLE I tag are:

Have fun, ladies.


  1. Oh, well if colorful covers were an option I would definitely go for them over black or white! I love colorful covers and ones with creative uses of text, even more so.

    This is a fun meme, Serena! I hope to be able to do this before too long. 🙂

    I used to love reading in bed but can’t do t anymore. I am all about first person point of view.

    This seems like fun, though my answers I’m sure will be pretty bland. LOL I’ll post it soon!

    I agree with you on a lot of these.
