Big thanks to Emma at Emma’s Bookish Corner for nominating me for the Rapid Fire Book Tag! Here are my answers …

eBooks or physical books?

Physical book! No question! Ebooks are great but I’m an old-fashioned girl.

 

Paperback or hardback?

Hardback.

 

Online or in-store shopping?

In-store – nothing better than browsing the shelves in a good bookshop.

 

Trilogies or series?

Series.

 

Heroes or villains?

Villains. I love a good villain that sticks in my mind long after reading.

 

A book you want everyone to read.

The House on the Strand by Daphne Du Maurier. I love that book! Couldn’t tear myself away from it!

Recommend an underrated book.

Nothing springs to mind so I’ll say another fabulous Du Maurier: Rebecca.

The last book you finished.

Cursed by Thomas Enger

 

Weirdest thing you used as a book mark.

Index cards! They are great for writing down thoughts about the books I’m reading.

 

Used books, Yes or no?

Yes! I prefer new but I do love used books.

 

Top three favourite genres?

Crime Thrillers

Mysteries

Psychological  Thrillers

Borrow or Buy?

Buy.

 

Characters or plot?

Both! Both are vital ingredients in a ‘good’ book.

 

Short or long book?

Long. A nice chunky book to sink my teeth into.

 

Long or short chapters?

Don’t really mind! Like both.

 

Name the first three books you think of.

‘Salem’s Lot – Stephen King

Sealskin – Su Bristow

Made in America – Bill Bryson

 

Books that make you laugh or cry?

Laugh. I LOVE Bill Bryson books!

 

Our world or fictional worlds?

Ooooh, love both.

 

Do you ever judge a book by its cover?

I shouldn’t but I do! Book covers that I absolutely love are The Muse and The Essex Serpent.

 

Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?

Book to movie. Although I don’t think any adaptions, be it movie or TV, can trump the book. Having said that The Lord of the Rings is AMAZING!

 

Series or standalone?

Standalone.
