The Book Snob Tag

books

I saw this tag over on Words About Words and liked it so much that I decided to give it a bash! So, here goes!

Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?

Not always, no, but I do try to. Sometimes I honestly think it’s better if you don’t though, because I have yet to see an adaptation that really lives up to the book, and it is so frustrating sitting through a film sort of saying ‘uh, no that didn’t happen!’ or ‘well that’s just wrong’ to yourself the whole way through.

Format Snob: You can only choose one format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks? 

Physical books all the way for me. I just love turning the pages, and the satisfaction that comes with turning the last page of a well enjoyed book.

Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a nonreader? 

I already do – my boyfriend has no interest in books or reading, he is a movie and television kinda guy. He does think the amount I read is impressive though, even if he does feel like the third wheel in our relationship sometimes haha

Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

Tough to pick one, but it would probably be horror. Not for me, thank you!

Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Probably contemporary. Or romance. It’s hard to choose!

Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

I think chick-lit is definitely looked down upon. I don’t see why though, I love me some fluffy, feel good romance novels sometimes!

Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?

Yeah…a lot of the time, especially amongst work peers – it’s almost seen a my weird little quirk – oh you’re reading again – and it can be annoying. But I just tend to smile, and nod, and comfort myself with the fact that I have a hobby that I enjoy and I can lose myself in!

I’m not going to tag anyone in this post, but if you like the tag and want to give it a try, I’d love to read your answers!
