Book Tag: This or That

Thanks to the wonderful Beth Jones, who tagged me in the This or That book tag!

Here are the rules:

  • Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  • Choose one of the options.
  • Tag 10 other people to do this tag and spread the love!

 

1. Reading on the couch or on the bed?

It depends! Sometimes I prefer to read curled up on the couch or sprawled across my bed! Although, I do tend to find myself reading on the bed more often.

2. Male main character or female main character?

I don’t mind, for me it’s the character’s personality that matters!

3. Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Hmm, it’s difficult to choose, usually it’s whatever I feel like a the time, haha.

4. Trilogies or quartets?

It really depends on the story, like there’s no point in dragging a story along if everything is wrapped up in the 3/4 books, unless it’s a prequel/spin-off series, then that’s a whole different question!

5. First-person point of view or third-person point of view?

I don’t really mind either, to be honest, I don’t mind either depending on how the author writes.

6. Reading at night or in the morning?

Because I’m a full-time student, I don’t really have a lot of time to read in the morning, and I enjoy the peace and quiet I get when reading at night!

7. Libraries or bookstores?

There’s just something special about walking into a bookstore, epecially vintage ones!

8. Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

Laugh! I don’t mind both, but a girl can only cry over books a number of times, am I right?

9. Black book covers or white book covers?

Both are beautiful, of course, but I really love hard covers that are plain black when you take the dust jacket off, they just look so elegant!

10. Character-driven or plot-driven stories?

Again, it depends on the story, because if I don’t like the characters, I probably won’t continue reading, but if I don’t like the plot, it’ll just drag on. It’s a combination of both for me.


So there’s mine! I’m not too sure how good I am at these tags, since there were only a few questions where I actually picked one option over the other, haha!

I tag:

Jorelene @ Page Chronicles

Lola @ Hit or Miss Books

Louise @ geniereads

Stephanie @ My Life as a Bibliophile

Aimee @ My Life in Books

Eleanor @ Real Tasty Pages

Morgan @ Happily Ever Bookish

Reg @ She Laditude

Ally, Melia & Laurena @ The Immortal Readers

Cover Reveal: Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas

eos covers
The UK/AUS/NZ and the US covers, respectively

 

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

 

It’s finally here! The Bloomsbury Twitter account revealed the covers on Friday, what do you guys think?

Personally, I much prefer the UK/AUS/NZ cover, I like how all the covers have the white background and I think they’d all look gorgeous when photographed! When I first saw the US cover, I wasn’t a big fan of the colour, but looking at it now, it’s kind of growing on me!
