Book Tag ~ This or That

 

Thank’s to Rantings of a Reading Addict for doing this Book Tag ~ This or That. The creator of this tag is Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. More and more of these posts are popping up on YouTube and around the blogosfere. I’m not comfortable enough to do a YouTube video, but I’m happy to share my thoughts in a post. 

 

This Book Tag ~ This or That looked like fun!! I hope that you’ll grab the tag and do one yourself. Then come back and share your link, or even tag me so I’ll see it!

 

The Questions

 

Reading on the couch or on the bed?

 

Well I do both. I like the bed. It’s comfy and I have a wonderful view out of the window in the bedroom, plus the light is just right all natural, But, I also like the couch now that we have a desent couch. Before I would have said no couch, just because the one we had was for a dorm room, yep one of those couches, but at Christmas we got a very nice gift, a new couch and I love it. I think now, I do more reading on the couch, then the bed. 

 

Male main character or female main character?

 

A difficult questions. I like both, but I think I read more female main character books. I love my lead females to kick-ass. On my bookshelf I have more female leads.

 

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

 

Ooo I’d say both. I love sweet and salty snacks. I think when I read I mainly go for the chips, but I have also been enjoy fruit like sliced apples and clementines (organs).

 

Trilogies or quartets?

 

No preference. As long as the overall arc is complete with no strings hanging loose, then I’m good with it being a trilogy or a quartet.

 

First person POV or third person POV?

 

I like first person POV’s, especially if an author does it correctly. I find I enjoy the first POV more the the third person POV. 

 

Reading at night or in the morning?

 

Both when I can. Mainly my morning consists of getting everyone read for work or school and sent off then I try to do a little adulting; before I read. The house isn’t going to clean it’s self nor are the dishes, laundry and trash going to get done, so I have to make a little time, before I dive into that book. Then my little one comes home from school we play and once he’s down for bed I get to read again. My day’s don’t always go like this, things happen, but I do get a chance to read both morning and night. 

 

Libraries or bookstores?

 

Before this year I would have said bookstores, just because I want a book when I want it and the library doesn’t care all the books I enjoy. But, now I say the library. I’m trying to not spend so much and I’m also trying to support my library more. As for bookstores Amazon has been my down fall with the ebooks and when they go on sale, but this year I am refraining. It’s the year of loving my library!!

 

Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?

 

Laugh. I have enough sad things happen in my life that I prefer to keep my reading up bet and on the humors side. I don’t like to cry when read, though I have had those reads that make you tear up, I don’t get upset over it, but I really do just want to have a HEA and several laugh’s along the way. 

 

Black book covers or white?

 

No preference. My main reads are eBooks, but this year I’m picking up more paperbacks, though I don’t have a preference on the book covers being black or white. 95% of my book collection the back grounds are black. 

 

Character driven or plot driven books?

 

Oh this is a tough one. I like both chapter and plot driven books. I’d have to say an amazing plot driven book is more what I enjoy, but I do want to see the main character grow throughout that plot. So, plot driven with character growth. 

 

 

There you are. I tag you to do this! 

 

Tell me what you think about the choices I picked, whether you agree or disagree with them. Did you enjoy having a little book tag today? What would some of your answers be? You can write your own post and tag me ( using @angels_gp ), leave me a link, or you can just answer in the comments. 

 

So what are your answers to This or That Book Tag? Hope you have a great day, and happy reading!!

This weeks question:

Deserted Island books: What five books would you want to have if you were stranded?

 

Oh man, this is a tough questions. You can only have 5 books and if it’s a series it needs to be one of the good ones you can read over and over, but not feel like you are missing anything. I would love to bring my eReader, but then you need power and of course a deserted island wouldn’t have a way to recharge my device unless I was a smart person who knew how to rig something up and since I don’t. I’ll have to pick. 

 

And without further ado, my 5 picks for a desert island….

Tell Me Something Tuesday: Who are your favorite romantic couples new and old?

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where we discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog..

 

This weeks question:

 

Who are your favorite romantic couples new and old?

 

 

Kate Daniels series: Really their is no explaining this couple Kate and Curran. They just rock and how their relationship develops between the books into what it is now going into the last and final installment. Amazing. I LOVE both these two. 

 

 

Mercy Thompson series: Another no explaining this couple Mercy and Adam. Their dynamics work. I was frustrated with Adam at one point in the series, but still this couple will always work for me. 

 

 

Hidden Legacy series: Nevada & Rogan. These two aren’t a couple yet, but are on their way. Rogan has his eye set on winning Nevada over. I’m looking forward to see how these two battle it out; before they get together. Both are such strong and unique characters. 

 

 

Moonshadow: Nikolas and Sophie. They have this connection that works, even with all the head butting, and once they give in, oh boy, do the sparks fly.

  

 

Beauty and the Highland Beast: This one sticks out for me, because I don’t read Historical Romance, but just look at that cover. The cover and blurb, plus a recommendation from Herding Cats & Burning Soup had me having to give this story a try. 

 

Fia and Dair. Both have scares inside and out, he’s bold and she’s gentle, so they complement each other. They both needed someone to see them, help them heal, and see past the scars. Watching them come together was sweet and endearing.

 

 

Psy-Changeling series: Ok, so I can’t just pick one in this series. I have a few couples that are my favorites. Lucas & Sascha, the couple that started it all, Slave to Sensation. Judd & Brenna from Caressed by Ice. Hawke & Sienna from Kiss of Snow. And, Last for now is Kaleb & Sahara from Heart of Obsidian.

   

 

 

I could go own, but these couples have become my favorites. Ones that have stuck with me and continue too. I’ve reread their books and will keep rereading them. 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d love for you to share with me some of your favorite couples new or old!

My Reading Habits


 

What are your reading habits?

 

I ran across these questions and topic on Spooky’s House of Books back in January. I’ve not shared much personally about me on the blog and found that this would give you a little insight into me and my reading habits. 

 

— Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?

 

Not really. I read on the couch or in bed. If it’s sunny, warm, hot, or all around nice outside I prefer to be outdoors.

 

— Bookmark or random piece of paper?

 

Bookmark, but if that’s not handy then any random piece of paper will do until I find a bookmark. Really I’m never without a bookmark of some kind.

 

— Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages?

 

I can stop reading, but I prefer to finish the chapter. If I stop someplace in the page I usually forget where and read the same line or paragraph over again.

 

— Do you eat or drink while read?

 

Yes. I enjoy a good cup of tea or coffee and something to snake on.

 

— Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

 

I sometimes have the TV on, but that is only when my son is home or my hubby wants to watch soccer. If it’s not something I’m wanting to see, I’ll pick up a book and read. I prefer not to have TV or Music going. Not a multitasks in that way. ^_^

 

— One book at a time or several at once?

 

I read one book at a time. I finish one; before I pick up the next. Can’t do (don’t like too do) the multi books. I like to focus on one story at a time.

 

— Reading at home or everywhere?

 

Everywhere. I’m never without a book. (Love my eReader)

 

— Reading out loud or silently in your head?

 

Silently in my head.

 

— Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

 

No. Never.

 

— Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

 

Keeping it new.

 

— Do you write in your books?

 

Hell No. “My precious” I love my books and will never ever write or dog ear them.

 

Now that I’ve shared my reading habits.
Tell me what are your reading habits? I’d love to know.

Unexpected Graphic Sex in Books

Mini-rant that I won't post on my site:

 

I just finished this book - Mutationem - well, by finished I mean, *I* was finished with the book, even if it wasn't finished.

 

I DNF'ed at 57% for a variety of reasons.

 

One of those reasons was the XXX adult sex in it. I mean, if you Goodreads the cover and description for Mutationem, you are given NO indication that this book is going to have a ridiculous amount over-the-top sex scenes in it. (The fact that they're lesbian sex scenes might make it even worse for some people. I didn't care.)

 

I swear I think the author put in this one character JUST for the chance to have a plethora of graphic sex scenes in it.

 

This bugged the crap out of me!

 

I don't mind reading erotica. One of the few anthologies I own is a best erotica anthology... but I DO mind when graphic sex pops up in books multiple times with no indication at all that it is that type of book.

 

Argh.
