I realized today that it’s been a whole month since I’ve posted! I apologize for the unannounced hiatus – I was caught up with schoolwork, but I’m finally back with a tag created by the talented Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. Thank you so much to Shruti @ This Is Lit and Cate @ Midnight Biblio Blog for tagging me. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out both of their lovely blogs.

Reading on the couch or in bed?
I generally read just about anywhere at home, but if I had to pick, I’d say the couch. I usually end up reading myself to sleep in bed.
Main character: male or female?
Female, because I can relate to her thought process more easily; however, I do enjoy reading from a male perspective, too, especially when it comes to books with alternating POVs.
Sweet snacks or salty snacks while reading?
I don’t eat while reading, but in general, I prefer sweet snacks. I dislike chips, pretzels, popcorns, and most other salty foods.
Trilogies or quartets?
Trilogies – that’s one less book I have to wait for. 🙂
First person or third person point of view?
First person, because it helps me feel more connected with not only the protagonist but also the supporting characters, too. I find most books written in third person too detached.
Reading at night or in the morning?
I do both, but I typically read more at night.
Libraries or bookstores?
Libraries! I’ve mentioned this time and time again, but I feel as though libraries are underutilized gems. Books are quite expensive, so I save money by borrowing extensively from our local library.
Books that make you laugh, or books that make you cry?
There are very few books out there that have made me cry, so I’ll go with those. Ultimately, however, I believe the best books are the ones that can be you laugh AND cry, truly taking you on an emotional rollercoaster ride.
Black or white book covers?
I prefer my fantasy reads with a dark cover and my contemporary reads with a light cover; I feel as though this helps set up the mood for each, respectively.
Character or plot driven stories?
This one is tough because both superb characterization and a thrilling plotline are necessary for all phenomenal novels. If a book lacks a solid, enrapturing plot, then I feel as though it lacks purpose; on the other hand, if it lacks relatable characters, I end up forgetting their names and identities within hours of finishing it. If I had to choose, though, I would say character driven, because with most stories even if I can’t remember the specifics of the plot, I can usually recall character-related details.
