One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?
On my bed, definitely. It’s where I’m most comfortable, and I love curling up there with a cup of tea and my cat is. DA. BEST!!
All I need on a rainy Monday morning is a good book & a ginger cat. My first book of the #booktubeathon is DANNY, THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD by @roald_dahl _______________________________________ #book #bookish #booklove #bookworm #bookstagram #bookphotography #readathon #reading #amreading #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #potd #catsofinstagram #catsagram #gingercat #dannythechampionoftheworld #roalddahl
Two: Male main character or female main character?
I definitely find myself drawn to female characters more–I think it’s because generally, I relate to girls more than boys.
Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
SWEET all tha way. I’m such a sweet tooth, and I am ashamed to say that there are probably chocolate stains on quite a few of my books. (I know, I’m sorry).
This was taken about five seconds before I got ice cream in my hair & all over my face. And five minutes before we abandoned the beach coz it was flipping freezing! (Although, ofcourse there was some hardcore lady types rocking their bikinis. Inspo for us all.) ____________________________________ #beach #devon #westwardho #icecream #potd #westwardhobeach
Four: Trilogies or quartets?
ERM, this is a difficult one, and I’m gonna go with a wimpy non-answer. I think it depends on the story. It’s all about pacing and structure, and it varies. However, something I cannot stand is a story that is stretched over multiple books purely for the sake of more books.
Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?
First person. I like to basically be BFF’s with our main character by the end of the book, and I feel like first person is the best way to achieve that completely fictional goal.
A reader lives a thousand lives ~ George R. R. Martin. ⠀ I've had a bit of a rubbish month, with hypermobility probz and then getting sick on top of that. I am looking forward to November though, and hoping it's gonna be a bit better health wise. I'm revising my book for #nanowrimo and getting on with my PhD research! Hope November will treat you kindly, Insta friends! ❤️ ⠀ ___________________________________⠀ #book #bookish #booklove #bookworm #bookishfeatures #bookstagram #bookstagramfeatures #bookphotography #reading #amreading #instabook #instaread #bookaddicts #bookaholics #booknerdigans #booklife #bookblogger #quote #bookquote #georgerrmartin
Six: Reading at night or in the morning?
Definitely in the night. I think this is something to do with my mum, who unwinds every day with a couple of chapters. Reading at night relaxes me, and it’s something I look forward too every day. Morning Laura is much more yawns and caffeine fueled–reading is not on the agenda.
Seven: Libraries or bookstores?
LIBRARIES ARE THE BEST! Not only are librarians the most lovely of people, but libraries are often a haven for those who might not be able to go to bookstores.
Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?
I’m much more of a laugh-er than the cry-er, but I also think it’s so HARD to craft a really truly funny book. Also, I prefer a good belly laugh.
Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?
BLACK. Mainly coz, although I love white books, I’m much more likely to spill something and stain a white cover.
Ten: Character driven or plot driven stories?
I generally fall head-over-heels in love with characters, and I don’t think plot *quite* as important as an engaging MC.
