I saw this post over on Kathryn’s blog, and I knew I just had to do it because it seemed like such fun. Here is her post if you wish to see how she answered the tag.
Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
I try, but it does not work out that way all of the time. There have been times I have seen a movie and then watched the book. Or I will see a movie is being made so I read the book first, which is what this question asks. I think it all depends on which one I am exposed to first. I don’t mind seeing the movie first and then comparing though. I think sometimes people get too intense about it, but I am happy either way.
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?
I would choose physical because I like how they feel in my hands. It would also be hard to read to Ever as well since he has so many books. I enjoy all formats so it makes me sad to have to choose.
Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Yes. Ethan has dyslexia so he doesn’t read. He is very happy they have made that open dyslexic font though, and I’m hoping when he has more time, he can get an ereader and utilize the font to be able to enjoy books more.
Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Space books. I cannot do it. I get so bored, and I end up getting mad at the book. All the books about space can stay far away from me because find them so darn boring. Good for you if you like them, but I just cannot.
Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Thriller and mystery. Because those can be like medical or police procedural which I love so much. I watch those types of shows mainly so it would just translate well to books. I could just read all of the police procedural thriller mysteries…especially those set in the UK… and give me all of the medical thrillers. But I also love domestic thrillers so it works out for me.
Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
I think romance and YA. I feel like people just think romance is the same thing and the books have a lot of sex or are just stupid. Or that historical romance is just about swooning women and strong men, but they are not. Romance tells stories about people and shows so many sides of the world. It is much more than just love stories, and I wish people would read them instead of saying things just because they cant take the time to pick up a book ad find out. YA is great, but some adults say they are just for teens and can be stupid. But I think these people are often just not reading the right stories. YA can be diverse, complex, and interesting. There is always room for it to be better, but it is pretty awesome to me.
Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
I read in my house and post about it online so I don’t think so really. No one has ever like been rude about it online. Ethan makes fun of some of the romance covers though saying they all look the same, but I think he just likes to give me a hard time.
I tag anyone who wants to do this, and I would love to see your answers. This was really fun, and I should start doing more tags again because I missed sharing some things you may not know about me and my reading.
