Would you rather - Book Tag!!

Hello fellow readers! :-)
I've been wanting to do a book tag for a while now and finally here's the WOULD YOU RATHER BOOK TAG. It was originally created by Rachel from Rachel Reads on YouTube.
Let's get into it!

Question #1
Would you rather only read series or stand alones?
Oh gosh... that's a hard one. There're so many amazing stand alones out there but honestly if I had to choose I think I would pick only series because most of my favorite books are in a series and you just get to spend much more time with the characters and the story. But fortunately I don't have to decide! Because otherwise I would have never read Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver which is probably my favorite stand alone ever!

Question #2
Would you rather only read female or male authors?
When I buy books or put some on my TBR list I never care if they're written by a female or a male author. But for this tag I take .... female authors. Because we women gotta stick together! 

Question #3
Would you rather shop at your book store or Amazon?
That's pretty easy. I love going to the store and look at books and read blurbs and take some books home with me! BUT I recently found out that my local book store has way higher prices than Amazon and so I always order books there (or at Book Depository). Yes, I know everyone should support book stores to keep them alive and every now and then I do buy a book ore two there but ultimately it's just too expensive, I'm not a millionair and I like getting as many books as I can at an affordable price.

Question #4
Would you rather all books become movies or TV shows?
Well, I love book to movie adaptations and love seeing them coming to life on the big screen but also I see quiet often how the movie makers mess them up. They either don't use the whole potential the book(s) give them or they put too much own plot line in the film. That doesn't have to be necessarily bad but in some cases it just wasn't good. That's why, in my opinion, TV shows are the better option because you can get into more detail and it's "harder" to mess it up.

Question #5
Would you rather read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
Like is that even a question?! Who wouldn't wanna read 5 books a week?

Question #6
Would you rather be a professional reviewer or author?
This word "professional" just expresses so much pressure, doesn't it? I love writing reviews but honestly I don't think I'd want to do it for a living...
That leaves being an author. I also really enjoy writing but I just never have an unique idea and when I think I do I google it and someone else already wrote it and published it and I'm like
 So, what I'm trying to say is ... I don't really have an answer

Question #7
Would you rather only read your top 20 favorite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven't read before?
That's actually pretty easy: Since I usually don't re-read books I would obviously read new ones I haven't read before. ;-)
(And there are soooo many books I want to read... anyone know the feeling?)

Question #8
Would you rather be a librarian or a book seller?
A book seller. Because I love new, unused books and I love being surrounded by them.

Question #9  
Would you rather only read your favorite genre, or every genre except your favorite?
Probably read every genre except my favorite because if I read only my favorite I might grow tired of it eventually and also reading every other genre means a bigger range of books plus I would find a new favorite genre sooo - problem solved!

Question #10
Would you rather only read physical books or eBooks?
PHYSICAL BOOKS! PHYSICAL BOOKS!! PHYSICAL BOOKS!!! We should all support them or one day they won't be no more! I know they're more expensive than eBooks BUT isn't it a wonderful feeling to read the last page, close the book and put it on your shelf? To actually feel the book? Personally I think a full bookshelf (no matter the size!) is as much art as a picture. 

Thanks so much for reading! I had so much fun writing this, I hope you enjoyed reading it too and comment, subsribe or follow by email! ;-)


  1. OH MY! OH MY! This tag was sooo interesting and soo much fun! Completely loved and agreed with every single one of your answers! GAAH! Now I feel like doing this tag!

    1. It's a lot of fun, you should do it! I officially tag you now :D
      Thanks so much for commenting!

    2. You're really welcome and yaaay! Thanks for the tag, I SHALL DO IT & ENJOY IT A LOT!


  2. I prefer physical books too, but sometimes ereaders are just so much more convenient! I was lugging around Illuminae in my purse the other week and now I'm reading a book on my nook. My shoulders thank me! :p

    I think I'd rather be a librarian over a bookseller (but I'd be happy with either). Our local library does so much for the community and I'd love to be apart of that! :)

    1. You're right, physical books (especially hardcovers) can be quite heavy BUT THEY ARE JUST SO DAMN BEAUTIFUL :-)

      Thank you so very much for commenting and reading! ;)
