1. Reading on the couch or on the bed?
Both! I love reading in bed on lazy Saturday mornings, or curling up with a book when I get into bed, but the sofa works equally well tbh. Reading is reading, ain’t it?
2. Male main character or female main character?
I really could not be less bothered about this. I’ve read books with male MCs that I’ve loved, I’ve read books with female MC’s that I’ve loved. It’s neither here, nor there!
3. Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
Salty snacks for the win! Pass me that cheese board. (Note: I don’t often have a cheeseboard to hand when I pick up a book, but that would just be the best. If anyone wants to be my cheeseboard chef that would be bloody marvellous.)
4. Trilogies or quartets?
Trilogies, but only because I don’t think I’ve actually read any quartets. Three is the magic number though, innit?
5. First-person point of view or third-person point of view?
First person, but again, I’m not hugely fussy. If the plot is well paced, the characters are interesting and the writing is competent, I’m usually happy.
6. Reading at night or in the morning?
At night usually, because I am a bad morning person. I keep trying to convince myself to get up early in the morning to read before I go to work. It always seems like the best idea ever the night before, but I can never force myself to wake up properly. Sloth life.
7. Libraries or bookstores?
Both have their charms! I like that you can linger in libraries, and I enjoy the peacefulness of them. But then again, nothing quite beats browsing the shelves in Waterstones and taking home your own bag of books to keep. (Crying at all of the money you’ve spent afterwards is optional).
8. Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
For the most part, books that make me cry. I’m an emotional reader and I love being provoked into reactions by characters and feeling things that I might not necessarily usually feel. Those are always the books that stay with me long after I’ve finished them.
9. Black book covers or white book covers?
Black book covers, purely because I don’t think I actually own any white ones. I also have a tendency to carry books in my bag, and my bag is usually a mess so white probably isn’t the greatest of ideas.
10. Character-driven or plot-driven stories?
You can’t have one without the other if you want a good book. I think without a good plot, there’s no point in great characters being there, but with no growth behind the characters, the plot is empty. Philosophical, right?
