I found this tag at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures who found it on a GREAT read she found the tag at Fiction No Chaser who saw it at at The Artsy Reader. I had done a This Or That tag before, but this one is different so I thought I would do this one as well. So here we go!
Series or Standalones?
Definitely series. When I enjoy a book, I get invested and hate for it to end. Series let me continue in that world with familiar characters. They prolong my enjoyment. I feel so disappointed when a series comes to an end and I feel like I’m saying goodbye to old friends.
Magic Earned or Magic Born?
I think I’m going to choose Magic Earned. I like to see a character develop something and then go through the process of learning to use it. It adds to the story to see where this newly found magic will take the characters and how it will help them in the end.
Enemies to Lovers or Friends to Lovers?
Enemies to Lovers. There is so much more for the couple to overcome during the story before they become lovers. Sometimes that causes a lot of angst so it has to be well done.
Hilarious Banter or Emotional Ruin?
Hilarious Banter. I prefer the light-hearted back and forth over the dark, heavy feeling of emotional ruin. I love when I get an unexpected laugh out of a character’s conversation. Witty, funny characters are my favorite.
Love Triangle or Insta Love?
I’m going to have to go with Insta Love here. Love Triangles are my nemesis. They stress me out so bad and I can’t help but feel bad for the characters. That totally takes the enjoyment out of the story for me.
Keyboard Smash Names or All Names Start with the Same Letter?
All Names Start With The Same Letter. I can’t stand when I spend extra time trying to figure out how to pronounce a characters name. It takes away from the flow of the story and I find that aggravating.
Mean Parents or Dead Parents?
This is a hard one. I think I’m going to say Dead Parents as it breaks my heart when a character has to suffer through the abuse of mean parents.
Supermodel Looks or Constantly Says How “Plain” They Are?
I prefer a plain character. Even if they are constantly being referred to it. I can relate better to a plain character and it also makes me rejoice more in the progression of their relationship.
Face on Cover or Typography on Cover?
I’m going to say Face On Cover. I actually prefer a scene with the models. I want to get an idea of what to expect in the story. I’m not so much concerned with what the characters look like on the cover, more with what they are doing or whatever hint I may be able to pick up
Villain Turning a Little Good or Hero Turning a Little Bad?
Villain Turning a Little Good. I love to see growth in a character versus someone I think highly of turning a little bad.
Best Friend Dies or Love Interest Dies?
Definitely best friend. It’s not good when any important character in the story dies. But I will get very upset if the romance of the story gets cut off.
Awesome Writing with a Dull Plot or Amazing Plot with a Murderously Bad Writing?
I need an amazing plot. I can forgive bad writing as long as the story pulls me in and keeps me in.
Cliffhanger Ending or Heartbreaking Ending?
Oh cliffhanger ending for sure. With a cliffhanger, even if I’m angry at the time, at least I know there is a possibility of redemption. Even if I have to wait. With a heartbreaking ending, that normally leaves me feeling bad about the story and frustrated that there will be no happy ending ever. That will ruin a whole book for me.
Breaking the Spine or Dog-Earing the Pages?
OMG, don’t. Just don’t. Don’t do either. The thought of that destruction just baffles me. Books are to be respected for the work put into them and I feel like breaking the spine or dog-earing is just careless.
“Bad Boy” Trope or “Perfect Golden Boy” Trope as the Love Interest?
Definitely Bad Boy. I like seeing the glimpses of good in the bad boy. I feel like the perfect golden boy always has an evil streak but everyone just loves him. That’s kind of aggravating.
Definitely some great questions in this tag. How would you answer these questions? Are they easy or hard questions for you?
