The Would You Rather Book Tag

I was in the mood for a tag this week, so I did some looking until I found one I haven't done yet & seemed fun. I found this one on The Infinite Limits of Love (which is an awesome blog, btw, and y'all should absolutely follow!)--a bookish edition of Would You Rather. Fun, yeah? Here we go! :)

Would you rather read physical books for the rest of your life or only audiobooks?

This one is easy for me--physical books for sure. I am forever a work in progress with listening to more audiobooks. 

Would you rather know all the spoilers before you start a book or never read the last chapter?

Spoilers 100%! I already tend to read spoilers before starting books. It's rare that spoilers will turn me off reading a book I'm already excited about. So I'd definitely rather be spoiled and get to read the entire book.

Would you rather be stuck on a very long train/plane ride with a book you hate or no book at all?

Hmm. Probably a book I hate. That way I could pick what I hated about it and then start writing something I like better as my own personal fanfic entertainment.

Would you rather read a book with a really bad ending or a book where your favorite character is killed off?

Okay, this one is tough. I guess it would depend on what the bad ending was? Like, is it a bad ending where the main ship doesn't end up together? Or the love interest cheats? Because in those cases I'd probably rather the favorite character getting killed off. But if it's just an ending that isn't satisfying... I think I have to go with the favorite character getting killed off. Either way this probably wouldn't be a favorite book if one of these two options are true, so I'd rather the character die with dignity and give me room for fanfic where they don't die and instead live HEA... I'm overthinking this. lol.

Would you rather love a book everyone hates or hate a book everyone loves?

Love a book everyone hates! I love when I love books.

Would you rather read books by your favorite author but they’re all really bad or read books by an author you hate but they’re all really good?

Books by an author I hate but they're all really good. Like I said, I love to love books. (This is assuming that I hate the author because their previous works weren't to my tastes and not because the author is racist, homophobic, etc... Then I'd rather stick with the author I love who isn't all of those things.)

Would you rather only ever read contemporary books for the rest of your life or fantasy?

I am such a mood reader this one is so tough! But maybe contemporary? That would leave me with KA and Mariana Zapata...but it'd take away JLA and Ruby Dixon. Ugh! This question! Fantasy. For the sake of picking one (even though I don't want to), I'll say fantasy. 

Would you rather own a signed edition or a first edition?

I've never much paid attention to first editions or anything, so I guess I'll go with signed.

Would you rather never be able to borrow a book from the library again or never reread your favorite book?

Oh good, an easy one. Never be able to borrow a book from the library again. It's been so long since I've used the library (though I do love libraries! I just own so many books now, and there's KU, and all the books sitting on my Kindle...) and re-reading is my comfort crutch. There's no way I could give that up.

Which now has me second guessing the contemporary/fantasy question. A lot of my comfort reads are contemporary. Maybe that should have been my answer...

Would you rather spend the day in your favorite fictional world but never meet your favorite character, or spend the day as the villain and try to attack/kill that favorite character?

A day in the world without meeting the character. It'd hurt, but there's probably some other awesome characters there. Oh! Or the day as the villain and then PLOT TWIST it turns into one of those hero/villain love stories. That'd be fun, though hard to pull off in a day. Yeah, the first option is probably the more successful choice.

Well, this was fun! What do you think of my answers? Would you have answered differently? Leave a comment and let me know! :)
