Hey lovelies!! Today I’ve decided I want to do a tag! It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and done one of these! I originally saw this on Rain’s blog and it looked like a lot of fun!! Go check out her post! I was also tagged by the lovely Bibi! Thank you so much!! ❤ Just like with Rain’s post, this is a mini celebration for me having survived my first week back at college! (Though this will be scheduled for a few days into my second week!) Let’s do this!
Bookish This or That Tag
1. Series or standalone?
I like each for different reasons. With standalones, I enjoy being able to read an entire story without having to wait for a sequel. I usually enjoy contemporaries as standalones. Series are perfect for worlds that have more stories to tell than one, or stories that require a lot of detail. Series are perfect for fantasy! I can’t really say that I enjoy one above the other.
2. Magic earned or magic born?
I find it more interesting when a character has to earn their magic/powers. That being said, characters who are born with magic can be pretty interesting too!
3. Enemies to lovers or friends to lovers?
Aw man this one is SO easy!! Enemies to lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes ever!! I will die defending it!! Friends to lovers is so overdone and I’m honestly so over authors never letting friends just be friends. (ESPECIALLY FEMALE/MALE FRIENDSHIPS. Men and women can just be friends for fuck’s sake. //Excuse my language, it’s a sore topic for me.)
4. Hilarious banter or emotional ruin?
I enjoy a healthy mixture of both! I will say that it’s nearly impossible for me to enjoy a book that lacks any type of humor, but I will on occasion enjoy fluffy books that don’t have any emotional ruin in it. So I guess hilarious banter?
5. Love triangle or insta love?
Can I choose neither? I honestly can’t stand either…
6. Keyboard smash names or all names start with the same letter?
Same letter! I like to actually be able to pronounce a name lol. Keyboard smash names are too difficult and I get unreasonably angry when I find out I have been mispronouncing a name.
7. Mean parents or dead parents?
I don’t like either all that much, but if I had to choose I would say dead. Mean/abusive parents piss me off.
8. Supermodel looks or constantly says how “plain” they are?
This entire tag is just me saying neither… But honestly, both are really annoying. I wish characters could describe how they look without commenting on if they find themselves attractive or not.
9. Face on cover vs. typography on cover?
Oh finally another super easy one! Typography!!! Face on covers are one of my biggest bookish pet peeves!
10. Villain turning a little good or hero turning a little bad?
Definitely villain turning a little good!! I absolutely adore redemption arcs. It doesn’t even have to be full redemption.
11. Best friend dies or love interest dies?
It depends. I want whichever is more devastating. (I’m a bit masochistic like that sometimes.) It really depends on the character and what their friendship/relationship is like. I feel like it’s usually more heartbreaking when a love interest dies, but that’s probably because it’s more common.
12. Awesome writing with a dull plot or amazing plot with murderously bad writing?
Definitely amazing plot with murderously bad writing!! I cannot handle dull plot at all. It really doesn’t matter how amazing the writing is, if the plot isn’t interesting I can’t enjoy it.
13. Cliffhanger ending or heartbreaking ending?
…..Neither? I want everything wrapped up in a happy way…
14. Breaking the spine or dog-earing the pages?
Why is this even a question????? Well I’ve only dog eared pages if I have nothing to use as a bookmark, but I have never purposely broken a spine.. But I rather keep the book in good condition and do neither.
15. “Bad boy” trope or “perfect golden boy” trope as the love interest?
Bad boy all the way!! I’m such a sucker for a bad boy with a soft spot for MC! Some of my favorite male characters fall under the ‘bad boy’ trope!
Well that was fun!!! I’m tagging:
