Reading on the couch or in the bed?

I remember when I used to LOVE reading in bed, then I acquired a husband & 2 tiny humans lol. Now, I alternate between reading on my commute to work & my bathtub. Most of my reading is done on my 1.5 hour ride to/from work & I even have instrumentals on my phone ready to block out all of my fellow New Yorker’s.

Male main character or Female main character?

So…ok…lol. I read another bloggers answer last night & commented on her post saying that I feel the same way. We agreed that our inner feminists were prob giving us the evil eye HAHA! I LOVE a strong female kick ass protagonist but I’ve mostly read male protagonists & really enjoyed them. It hasn’t been until recently that I started finding some of my most favorite female protagonists, mostly in YA Fantasy and can’t get enough of them!

Sweet Snacks Or Salty Snacks?

I’m not much of a snacker when I’m reading but there’s always that special night…IMG_1572

Trilogies Or Quartets?

Quartets Only if the the 3rd book was EVERYTHING & MORE! I’m greedy with my fictional characters.

First Person POV Or Third Person POV?

I enjoy a book with multiple POV’s especially when you get a big cast of characters you love. It’s like a special treat awaits me every time I start a new chapter & it’s my fave character’s POV.

Reading At Night Or In The Morning?

This is another habit that has changed for me, it used to be that I liked reading at night but now due to my life being re-arranged I actually enjoy my morning reading. Nights are reserved for my TV series.

Libraries Or Bookstores?

Bookstores ALL the way! besides the fact that my library exists only to deceive bookworms (Please see July Wrap up post for pics of my sad Library) LOL. I actually enjoy everything from seeing the new releases on their shelves to wandering from floor to floor inhaling my favorite smell in the world. Oh I get comfortable, Starbucks in one hand and B&N member’s coupons on the other…I make the most of these visits lol. Don’t even get me started on Strand Bookstore!

Books That Make You Laugh Or Books That Make You Cry?

Laugh…the more the better. I can appreciate a sad book every once in a while but if a book can make me laugh in the middle of a crowded NYC train, then it’s an instant fave.

Black Book Covers Orย White Book Covers?

Hmmm…I really love the look of the U.K. white covers, so crisp & beautiful. Now if the question was about the page color, I would say BLACK!

Character Driven Or Plot Driven Stories?

Character. I love my character’s complex & love getting a ton of insight as to why they do the things they do. What drives them? In the end, I always fall in love with a good character & they are what remains after I read the last page.

  1. Great answers! I definitely agree with your first one because I’m completely the same. I loved to read in bed but now most of my reading gets done on my morning and evening commute to and from work as well, with my iPod in to block out the sounds of other people on the train with me! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I also definitely prefer bookstores over libraries, probably for the same-ish reasons because my library never has new books on offer! Loads of money was spent on a fancy new buiding but the books were completely the same as they were in the old one and I was just like, what’s the point!

    1. Nice! Reading on the train has become like second nature at this point. That’s terrorist about your library! Mine was also renovated and made more posh, only all of the books disappeared. They mostly have empty shelves & the space itself is used for community events & classes.

      1. It’s something to do to escape the boredom of a long journey right? ๐Ÿ™‚
        Yeah it would be better if they’d kept the old building but updated the books instead with the money, it would have been money better spent in my opinion! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. And I don’t want to nominate people who’s already done this tag, so I always check. It’s so time consuming! Tagging 10 people…I don’t know if I know about that many bloggers who haven’t done this already ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Ah, I love snacks! I do not understand people who do not snack. I eat basically every three hours like clockwork. :p

    I’ve always been lucky to live places with good libraries. It’s a shame yours isn’t great! I actually don’t buy as many books as people seem to think because I get such good use out of the library.

    1. Lol I have to have a beverage with my books. That’s awesome that your library is one of the good ones. I still remember the feeling is get from finding all the good books & checking them out many years ago. Now it’s all about technology & using the space for a zillion other things they can generate $ from. It’s NYC though so I shouldn’t be surprised. Thank you for stopping by ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•
