Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before watching the film/TV show?
Almost always. The only time I don’t is when I have no intention of reading the books for whatever reason, or if the books aren’t to my taste but the show/film is, for example Bridgerton, where I’m reading the books after watching each season.
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, definitely! Currently, most books I read are ebooks, for the sake of convenience, but the reading experience is always best with a physical book. Hopefully this hypothetical universe comes with unlimited shelf space to collect all those books!
Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Probably not. They don’t need to be as enthusiastic a reader as I am, but they do need to have a level of appreciation for books and reading, along with supporting my sometimes over the top reading habits.
Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
That’s an easy one – horror! I’ve never been particularly fond of the genre and do my best to avoid it, so it wouldn’t be much of a loss.
Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Another easy one, as fantasy novels make up most of my shelf and TBR!
Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Romance is the first genre that comes to mind for this. I myself have never been one for novels that are solely romance centered and always prefer it as part of a bigger plot with a few exceptions. But that’s no reason to look down on the genre itself as it has just as much potential as any other genre out there, it’s just a matter of how the story is written.
As usual, I won’t be tagging anyone, but feel free to do this tag if it interests you – I’d love to hear your answers for these questions!
