Tag Tuesday: Book Snob Book Tag

I saw this tag on Heather from Bookables page (tag was originally created by tia and all the books), and I haven’t done a tag in so long. It seems fun, so let’s see how much of a book snob I am, ha!

1. Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

I would say about 85% of the time, yes. There are times when I don’t really think I’m interested in reading the book, but want to watch the movie, so I do that. But, most of the time, yes I prefer to read the book first.

2. Format Snob: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, ebooks, or audiobooks?

Physical books, for sure. I very rarely read ebooks, unless they’re review copies. I do listen to audiobooks occasionally, when they’re recommended to me as better than reading the physical copy, or when I’m in my car driving long trips. But I definitely prefer a physical copy over anything else.

3. Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

Yeah. People can be changed 😉 hahaha. No, but seriously, my boyfriend enjoys reading occasionally, but even if he didn’t, that would be okay with me. It is okay to have differences (:

4. Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

This is kind of easy for me: historical fiction. I hardly ever read it, mostly because history has always been my least favorite subject. There are a few time periods that really interest me, but if I had to choose a genre to never read again, I’d go with historical fiction.

5. Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Hmm.. this is hard because I like a lot of genres. I guess if I had to choose, it would be between mystery/thriller, contemporary, and YA fantasy. If I have to choose one, I would probably go with YA fantasy, even though I haven’t read much of that genre this year. I feel like with fantasy, there’s different worlds and different themes, so at least there would be differences in all the books and worlds. YA fantasy: final answer.

6. Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Um, I would probably say chicklit romance or smutty novels. I guess the themes are usually pretty predictable and generally the same. I enjoy them, but I see why some don’t.

7. Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?

I don’t think I’ve ever been snubbed for a specific book I was reading, but I’ve definitely been snubbed for being a reader. I know most readers feel the same way. I’ve heard “Is that all you do?” “Do you ever stop reading?” etc. all the time. Definitely growing up too, I was “nerdy” for reading, but here I am, 25 years later, still reading, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Not bothered, hahaha.

Okay, there’s the tag! I don’t feel like I’m thaaaat much of a book snob. (:

Thanks for reading! (:
