This or That Book Tag

Standard

Dhebbie, this choco skinned andro book nerd who thought I was Nigerian for God knows what reason nominated me for this tag. Of course we all know what follows this is a link to her awesome blog, so check it out here.

And, there are rules to these things you know. Rules to pretty much everything so;

1. Thank and link the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the questions asked.
3. Tag other 10 bloggers to do same .

READING ON THE COUCH OR THE BED?

I’d say couch because it sounds like something organised people do(Not that I am not, but er…) When I grow up, the answer will be couch but as of now; bed all day, bed all day(I know the song playing in your head right now 😉 Seriously though, why would you want to fall asleep on the couch? That is, if you suffer from the ‘one more chapter syndrome'(I promise to get a cooler and more complex name for it) before you sleep.

MAIN MALE CHARACTER OR FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER?

I had never thought of that before this question. Maybe because it does not matter really, but if the main character is female she should be kicking ass. Wait, what I’m I saying? Yes, it does not matter.

SWEET SNACKS OR SALTY SNACKS?

I’m just too predictable here. I have a sweet tooth. The tooth fairy never ever came for it.

TRILOGIES OR QUARTETS?

Twilight is a Quartet, right? Well then, quartets before…(failed to find a word that rhymes.) Though I am not much of a series fan. Divergent sucked it right out of my system.

FIRST PERSON POINT OF VIEW OR THIRD PERSON POINT OF VIEW?

First person is so awesome and feels so personal but then third person is umm…more objective than subjective so you get to choose a character you like with no bias. That does not make much sense, does it? But I like those books where the author is sort of an observer narrating the happenings…

READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?

Are you kidding me? Reading in the morning sounds like a massive privilege. Something people that retire at 30 do when they don’t feel like golf or watching the news channel on stock markets. The rest of us, I believe, can only conveniently read at night and sneak some hours in during day. Still, reading at night is better(or maybe it’s just my mediocre mindset #MillionaireGoals: reading Dostoevsky at 8am on a Monday morning.)

LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?

Like where do I prefer to hang or which would I rather own? Oh, or which would I rather raid? Duh, book store! Free things are not attractive (okay nobody should ever quote me on this one. A cat walked over the keyboard thank you.)

BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU CRY OR LAUGH?

I’m raking my brain for a book that has made me laugh and my memory falls short. Because tears are memorable yo! hihi cry, cry, cry! I’m just a sentimental person sometimes.

BLACK BOOK COVERS OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?

Have you seen the cover of Salt by Nayyirah Waheed and Semicolon by Naveed Khan? Then the cover of Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur and Love in my Language by Alexandra Elle? No, I’m not choosing.

 

CHARACTER DRIVEN STORY OR PLOT DRIVEN STORY?

Plot driven.

So my nominees;

@DiamondKarine because I read once, on her blog, that she does not remember book titles or authors. She just reads.

Umar at Write Thing because I’m a kind person, even to people who don’t take my photography lessons seriously.

Tricia the Ugandan chic. I kind of think she has my dream library. Talk to her nicely.

Joel B. Ntwatwa of the Nevender fame. I’ve always intended to ask the story behind the Nevender name. (yeah baby, I just rhymed! Okay, ignore my cringe-worthy rhymes)

Vicky. If you’ve been to her blog, you know she has a few off wires. Oops! I’ve never told her that, but it’s the good kind I swear.

Elijah, because he exists.

Phyllis, for her amazing literal mind which is also very practical. She’s a keeper.

Joel who insists that sleep is for the weak. Being the kind person that I am(hekekeke), I presume he reads during his sleep hours.

Sunshine because well…what’s a nomination without Sunshine?

And finally, Colin.

No, you don’t have to give reasons for nominating anyone I just used it as a perilous excuse to be wordy.
