Would You Rather Book Tag


Hello everyone! So, this is my first book tag (yay!). I actually wasn't personally tagged, but I happened to find this tag on two of my favorite book blogs (Honest Book Talk and Leslie's Library), and both of them said that they tag anyone who would like to do it, so here I am! This looks like a really fun tag and I'm glad for this one to be my first one! Without further ado, let's begin!

1. Would you rather...read only series or only stand-alone books?
Maybe this is more difficult for some people, but for me, this is easy! Obviously, I would rather to only read stand-alone books. Allow me to explain before you get mad. (Or not.) I tend to prefer stand-alone books because I find them to be more special. With series, I feel like I'm waiting too long to get to the conclusion to that looong problem. Also, sometimes I feel that they are stretched out a bit. Or maybe I would prefer to read stand-alone books because I just read more stand-alone books. In fact, all of my favorite books are stand-alone books.

2. Would you rather...read a book a book whose main character is male or female? 
Uh...I don't really see why this matters. What does the main character's sex have to do with the book? Maybe it's a little important, but not much. I really don't have a preference. (Am I allowed to not actually answer? Oh well: I say I can.)

3. Would you rather...only shop at bookstores or at Amazon?
Sorry, Amazon, but I'll have to choose bookstores. I have actually not gotten many of my books from Amazon, and I find it to be much more fun to let the hours slip away as you wander between bookshelves....That's any bookworm's dream!

4. Would you rather...have all books become movies or TV shows?
I would rather have all books become movies. If a book becomes a movie, then it's pretty much guaranteed that the plot will basically be the same. However, if a book is turned into a TV show, then the general idea of the book and its characters, settings, and so forth will be kept, but the plot will be altered. For a TV show, the writers would have to write new problems and situations for the characters, which was not in the book. For instance, I once saw a part of one of the Little House on the Prairie episodes, and the plot was not in the book at all!

5. Would you rather...read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
As difficult as it sounds, I would rather read five books per week. How could anyone stand to read only five pages in a day? And what if you the page ends in the middle of...a sentence? Anyway, if I read 5 books per week, having blog posts ready would be a breeze!

6. Would you rather...be a professional book reviewer or an author?
I know that if I were a professional book reviewer I could get free books for a review, but I would definitely have to choose to be an author. It has been a dream of mine ever since I was 5 years old (or somewhere around there). That would be a dream come true!

7. Would you rather...only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?
While it may be a little annoying to have to wait HALF A YEAR to read a new book, I would chose to wait. Who could survive on only 20 books? I can't even begin to think of what they would be.

8. Would you rather...be a librarian or own a bookstore?
I would like to own a bookstore. With a bookstore, you don't have to worry about people returning books late or library cards or not having the computers work. Plus, sometimes authors come to bookstores, so...

9. Would you rather...only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?
Definitely my favorite genre. First of all, I don't know who my favorite author is. Secondly, there would probably be more books in my favorite genre than by my favorite author, whoever that may be!

10. Would you rather...only read physical books or eBooks?
Physical books!! I really do prefer to actually hold a book in my hands and to flip the pages myself, rather than swiping and trying to adjust the brightness because it's either hurting my eyes or I can't see. Also, I wouldn't have to worry about my device dying on me.

Well, that's it for this book tag! I tag anyone who would like to do it, and if you do end up doing it, let me know so I can check it out! Happy reading, everyone!

  1. I agree! It's much more fun to browse a bookstore than to buy books online! Plus, I usually get to stop by the cafe and get a snack, too, when I visit the bookstore!

  2. I agree with almost all of your choices. But I don't think I could wait 6 months between books, though, and I have several books that I reread every year already (not 20, but I could pick 20). And I do a mix of bookstore and Amazon. I would definitely pick a local bookstore, but the nearest one to me is over a half hour away!

2017 Reading Goals - Update

Now that we're more or less halfway through 2017, I decided that it's about time to do a little update on how well Em and I are doing with the reading goals we made for ourselves at the beginning of 2017. We didn't make our goals extremely specific. All we did was choose a number based on how much we wanted to read and what seemed reasonable based on how much we knew we had read in 2016. And now it's time to reflect on those goals... oh boy.

I honestly don't think things are going well for Em. When I asked her if she remembered her original goal, she had no clue. (It was 50 books!) But, after a few months with only one book finished at the end of each one, she had lessened her goal to a more reasonable 30. (She couldn't remember this number, either!) Drawing knowledge from my experience with my monthly goals for Reading is Inevitable, I don't think that you can do all too well if you don't remember your goals. And it looks like this is true for Em as w…

Denik's New Layflat Softcover Notebooks - Review

Hey there everyone! If you've seen our bookstagram recently, you would know that we got some amazing new Denik notebooks! Now if you've never heard the name "Denik" before then I think it's time that you know, and after you read this post go check out their website, okay? (They actually came out with a new website design, too. It's amazing.)

Denik is so much more than just a notebook/sketchbook-selling company. The word Denik describes the whole community and cause that surrounds the company, a "grassroots, artsy-eclectic bunch", as it is so beautifully described on their website. The designs displayed on the covers of their products are made by artists around the world, no matter who they are or where they come from. With the income from the notebooks and sketchbooks they sell, Denik gives some to support these artists and to build schools for children around the world. The whole idea that Denik is built upon is that, together, art and people can …

All the Books I Own But Have Not Read (Part 1)

As of Wednesday, June 21st, summer is officially here. Ah: summer. That season when the sun comes out and kids get off from school. And, yes, while this does sound nice, this also means that it's going to be really hot and you're going to have so much time on your hands that you won't know what to do with it. Lucky for me, however, I also happen to own a whole bunch of books that I haven't yet read.

That's reasonable, though, right? Us bookworms find it a little hard to buy just one book when going to the bookstore, and since you kinda have a reputation for loving books, there's a good chance that you'll receive two or three books around holidays and birthdays. And you don't even want to get me started about book sales. Therefore, the books just start to pile up a bit. And while you'd love to read them, school and/or work and just life in general gets in the way.

However, the school year ended quite a bit ago. Summer vacation has begun. I finally h…

Quotes: Audacity

As some of you may know by looking at my posts on our social media page (@readingisinevitable on Instagram), I am currently reading Audacity by Melanie Crowder. It is a beautiful book written in free verse, and follows the life of Clara Lemlich, a female Jewish immigrant who came to America in the early 1900s. (For the full summary of the book, click here.) I absolutely love books written in free verse, or any type of poetry, in fact! This book is so lovely that I have decided to dedicate a whole post to some of my favorite quotes or parts! (Note: I am only on page 294, and there are 366 pages, not including the extra content at the end of my local library's copy.)
