The Book Snob Tag!

Despite having a million tags that I was actually tagged in but haven’t done yet *cough* I saw this tag on Emer’s page a while ago and decided that it was a fun quick tag that I wanted to do! Don’t you just love book tags?!

ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before seeing the film?

I’d be lying if I said “yes, always” because *looks at LOTR* but for the most part I do! There are so many adaptations (both films and shows) that I haven’t watched yet because I haven’t read the book and I’ve convinced myself that I’ll want to read the book first so, yeah. I swear I’ll get to all you beauties eventually!

FORMAT SNOB: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?

BUT WHY? I want to say ebooks because I travel so much and I’d love to be able to keep all my books with me wherever I go for always, but… Do I really think I could ever give up physical books? Nup! Physical books it is then! πŸ˜‚

SHIP SNOB: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

UM… In a perfect world I’d only date people who read lol I mean, that’d be really ideal. But… I guess I’m not opposed to dating a non-reader IF they’re understanding about what books and the book community mean to me! If a person can’t support me with my bookish love then buh-bye. Sorry not sorry–ain’t nobody got time for that!

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

Hah, this isn’t hard because I am the ultimate chicken and I rarely, if ever, read this genre: I would ditch horror in a heartbeat! πŸ˜…

UBER GENRE SNOB: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

I… I don’t know! Part of me really wants to say contemporary romance because I’M A SUCKA FOR DA LOVES but I’m gonna go with contemporary fiction. Even though I feel like I’m betraying my fantasy love by saying that, please see Darcy gif above and forgive me πŸ˜…

COMMUNITY SNOB: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: ROMANCE! Why do people have such a strong dislike towards romance? I mean, my reading about romance doesn’t affect you so why does it matter what I enjoy? I will say that I’m glad to see more non-romance readers opening up to reading the genre lately and finding that they enjoy it! It’s a sweet satisfaction 😏

Now wasn’t that a fun tag?
Don’t forget to tag me if you do this tag so I can see your answers too!

  1. HAHA when I saw the first answer… Nen has been trying to get me to read LOTR for YEARS πŸ˜› I just can’t though! The films were so so long and almost a traumatic experience for me as I was (mostly) forced to watch them ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Never again, haha. I completely agree with you about romance books! They’re my special brand of joy when I’m feeling down!! Jen

    1. Honestly, I love the LOTR movies (and The Hobbit). They’re my go to hangover movie and they’re also a great comfort movie for me to indulge in when I want to do nothing and still enjoy myself (when I’m not reading lol)! BUT… I read The Hobbit and WOW. It was cripplingly disappointing for me (sorry Tolkien fans)! πŸ™ˆ Like, I wanted to cry with how bored I was LOL so I’ve been hesitant to read the LOTR books ever since πŸ˜‚

  2. See I make this argument for P&P that it is actually contemporary. Because it was contemporary to Jane when she wrote it. So just because time has elapsed doesn’t mean that the intentions of the original author have changed and therefore choosing contemporary doesn’t mean giving up Darcy πŸ‘πŸ» YOU ARE WELCOME FOR THIS LOGIC πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Haha yaaaas, you show em! That’s really how I feel a lot of the time as well — although I have to admit that I still sometimes am not as open about reading romance as I know I should be. But I’m just tired of dealing with people’s judgements. I’ll enjoy my romance in peace, thank u very much! πŸ˜‚
