I did a very similar one of these recently, so if you read that, you’ll probably notice repeats, sorry. Nevillegirl tagged me in the Book Blogger tag, so I’m going to answer these questions. 🙂 Thanks!
Which book did you recently not finish?
I don’t tend to not finish books – I’m much more hesitant when starting them instead.
Which book is your guilty pleasure?
All the books [are guilty pleasures]! Actually, my guilty pleasure changes depending on the books of which I’m in the midst, but at the moment it is Moro’s Price by MC Hana. Sci fi, politics and LGBT+ characters.
Which book do you love to hate?
I’m guessing I have to have read the book before I’m allowed to pass proper judgement on it? I’m not a fan of a lot of the popular YA dystopians/sci-fi at the moment, but I’ve not read much of those books themselves.
Actually, I’m gonna cause a lot of frowns here, but I actually find JK Rowling’s style of writing in The Philosopher’s Stone childish, simple and dull. And, yes, I do love to say that to anyone who’ll listen.
Which book would you throw into the sea?
To warrant a book being thrown into the sea, it would have to be so poorly written that I’d deny someone else the chance to read it. Whilst there are many bad books in the world, I don’t think I’d throw any in the sea, hyperbole or not.
I’ve read Love Lessons by Jacqueline Wilson a fair number of times, so probably that.
Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
Something I’ve already read, perhaps? I think a copy of a book I already have on my shelf would be unfortunate more than a pain because I’d have to meaningless give away a book. Realistically, other books I would not like to receive as a present are those outside of my ‘age’ range. I still have many Middle Grade books on my shelves from when…well, when I was a pre-teen, but I’d hate to receive most MG books now – because of their more simplistic use of language and syntax.
Which book could you not live without?
Hmm, something by Lewis Carroll. I think my life would be a lot drearier if Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass had never existed.
Which book made you the angriest?
Again, I don’t think any book make me angry. Sure, some characters annoy me – both intentionally and not so much – but I’ve not actually been angry at a plot or a book in itself entirety. Some plots are vile, but this writing is deliberate and, regardless, a good book is a good book.
Which book made you cry the most?
Books rarely make me sob. None of the ones I’ve read recently have elicited that certain reaction. The Year The Gypsies Came (Linzi Glass) was pretty depressing towards the end.
Which book cover do you hate the most?
Out of all of the bookcovers I have read? *Wipes brow* Okay, I’d feel mean to name a single one, but I dislike a lot of self-published covers or romance covers because they are so typical. Some make a point of being a scene from the book – with the couple against a specific or coloured background – but most seem to just be bodies against bodies, which tells me nothing about whether I’m going to enjoy it. Really.
Now for the tags. I’d like to tag:
