I would like to start off by saying happy new month to everybody. Today i’m going to be doing my bookish preferences tag.
1. Which perspective is your favourite?
I love third person perspective particularly third person limited.
2. Which format is your favourite(hardback, paperback, audiobook,ebook,mass paperback)
Mg favourite format will have to be paperback, not only because it is more accessible, but also it is much easier to handle than a hardback which looks really good on a shelf but it’s quite hard for me to put it in a readable position. Currently i am reading ebooks because it’s more convenient, also because i’m in school which is why i haven’t been able to post as often as i would like. You can rank your favourite format from your most preferred to your least preferred in the comments.
3. Do you prefer a character focused or plot focused book?
Definitely character focused. I like to have a bit of balance where i have a strong plot and strong characters but when i have a weak plit but strong characters i am much more forgiving because i can stick around for the characters.
4. Do you care about prose?
Not really. I’m not the type of reader who needs top tier prose in order to enjoy a book, now i don’t want a book to have horrible prose and i am impressed with books that have beautiful prose but it’s just not a requirement for me.
5. How introspective do you want you characters to be?
I like to have a bit of balance with this one where the character isn’t so introspective that it’s kinda annoying and comes across as way too dramatic or angsty. I also don’t like it when the character doesn’t have any introspection at all, making them seem bland and two dimensional
6. How do you like your relationships?
I love friendships and family of all kinds whether it is biological family or a found family or any kind of family. I also enjoy cute romances as well.
7. Do you like a lot of description
No. This is why i’m having a tough time reading the lord of the rings, part of it is its meandering plot and another part is description. This is not meant as some sort of takedown of a story that has shaped what fantasy is today but it excessive description can get on my nerves a bit. Lord of the rings can be forgiven a bit because it’s fantasy and in the genre, a bit of description is super important but again it’s about balance. Sometimes a lot of description can end up being too distracting and they take away from the scene and charcters.
8. Do you prefer standalones or series
I feel like for this question the answer changes depending on the day or my mood, but for this particular day and mood i’ll choose standalones
9. Single POV or multiple POV
I prefer a single POV although i dont mind multiple POVs. I just think it’s easier for me to track the progress of the story and characters by observing them all from a single POV.
10. Do you prefer a strong start, middle or finish.
I prefer a strong finish. When the start to a book or series is a bit weak, i can still muster some patience and wait for this finish but when the finish is weak, i personally feel like it weakens the entire story as a whole as the ending was not satisfying and weak.
And most importantly
I tag YOU!
