Would You Rather: Book Edition


I came across this bookish version of ‘Would You Rather’ on mylittlebookobsession’s instagram/blog feed (which you should obsolutely check out, by the way) and couldn’t resist joining in the fun!

So, would you rather…

Read only trilogies or standalones?

Although this is tricky because there are so many amazing stand alone books, I would have to say trilogies. I love series of books because when discovering a good book and then finding out it’s the first in a series is the best thing!

Read only female or male authors?

First of all, I hate this question. The author’s gender is irrelevant to me to be honest; it’s their writing that is important not whether they are male or female.

That said, if I absolutely HAD to choose, the feminist in me would say female authors because male authors still dominate the book world, particularly in my favourite genre (fantasy), and that is a shame because I have no doubt there are some amazing female authors that the world is missing out on.

Still. Hate that question.

Shop at bookstore or online?

Although I love the convenience of shopping online I would choose bookstores. There’s nothing like browsing in a bookstore and coming away with a brand new book…or two…or three… I can’t imagine not being able to enjoy that.

All books become movies or tv shows?

I love TV shows but I always miss them when they’re on and end up binge watching them, which, whilst fun, renders me completely unproductive! I can’t imagine how unproductive that would make me if ALL books became TV shows! With that in mind, I think I’d have to go with movies.

Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

Who only reads 5 pages a day?? HOW DO YOU COPE?! 5 books per week. Definitely…although I may get less done at work.

Be a professional reviewer or author?

Hands down, an author. I often struggle to find anything to say about the books I read other than IT WAS SO GOOD GO READ IT NOW, so I’m not sure I’m cut out to be a reviewer. Being an author on the other hand is actually my secret dream…

Only read your top 20 favorite books over and over again or always read new books that you haven’t read before?

The pain of answering this question is real and brutal. It actually breaks my heart a little to imagine either of these scenarios being real. I cannot imagine not being able to re-read my favourites over and over again…but equally, never being able to read a new book would be devastating. I think I would have to go with…only reading new books. *cries at the thought* Urgh, it hurts!! Has to be that one though; I already get upset at the thought that I won’t ever be able to read all the books I want to because there are more every flipping day!

Be a librarian or bookseller?

A bookseller!! In a quirky little independent bookstore with big squishy chairs!

Only read your favorite genre or read every genre except your favorite genre?

Only read my favourite genre. I don’t know how I’d deal with not having the complete escapism of fantasy.

Only read physical books or ebooks?

I love my kindle. I love the convenience, I love that I can carry literally THOUSANDS of books in my handbag and switch what I’m reading without moving. I love that the books are often cheaper. I love that you can buy a book from your bed in the middle of the night when you can’t seep and start reading it immediately…but…it’s not the same as a real book. So it’s got to be only physical books. (Also, what would I take pictures of if I only had my kindle!! Haha!


So there you have it! What would YOU rather??
