Hello fellow readers! Today I decided to share my own booktag, that I created over a year ago. Be free to leave your own answers in the commentaries down below, I would love to see your answers!
Hope you enjoy answering and below the tag I show my own answers to the questions :-)

Twenty Questions Booktag:

1. How many books is too many books in a book serie?
2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?
3. Hardcopy or paperback?
4. Favorite book?
5. Least favorite book?
6. Love triangles, yes or no?
7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?
8. A book you’re currently reading?
9. Last book you recommended to someone?
10. Oldest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
11. Newest book you’ve read? (Publication date)
12. Favorite author?

20. Who do you tag? (You can invite them to the group to do the tag)

Nice job on those answers! Glad you liked it :)

Sarah | 1 comments 1. As long as the story stays interesting, keep 'em coming! That being said, I don't think I've read a series with more than 5 or 6 books in it.
2. Love them
3. Doesn't really matter to me. Most of the books I read are in an ebook format, but I love a beautifully made hardcover book.
4. Oh man, so hard to choose. My most recent favorite is probably American Gods by Neil Gaiman.
5. I really didn't like Rabbit, Run (or any of the other books in the series) by John Updike.
6. No way. I'm really not a fan of any romance in my books. Love triangles in particular just make me roll my eyes.
7. I have had a hard copy of Food in History by my bed for months now. I'm extremely interested in the topic, and I love nonfiction, but I seem to always choose to read whatever I have on my Kindle.
8. Wildflower by Drew Barrymore
9. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.. such a great book!
10. Well, Goodreads says that The Arabian Nights was first published in 800. Does that count?
11. Calamity by Brandon Sanderson (pub 2/16/16)
12. Lately it's Neil Gaiman
13. The only books I buy are nonfiction/reference or ones that I really love. Most of the stuff I read comes from the library.
14. Ernest Hemmingway.. I've tried several of his books and have disliked every one of them
15. Definitely bookmarks.. although most of the stuff I read is on my Kindle, so I don't really need either
16. I really don't reread books very often. There are too many books and life is too short.
17. No, at least I can't when the music has words. If it was just instruments and it was relatively quiet, I could.
18. I can enjoy both
19. Usually over multiple days. I rarely get the opportunity to read for more than 1-2 hours at a time.
20. I really don't have anyone to tag, but this was fun.

Alicia (amoree) | 1 comments 1. To me, it doesn’t matter. When I find an author that I really like I tend to read everything he/she has written and it doesn’t matter how many books there are in a series. Karin Slaughter’s Grant County and Will Trent series has 14 (6 and 8 respectively) and I started reading Blindsighted (published 2001) the first in the Grant County series, in 2015 when there were already 14 books published in the series. I love them all and eagerly await more!

2. I don’t mind cliffhangers, but if the next book doesn’t have some reminders about the prior book I sometimes get lost in the story and have to go back and skim the previous one.

3. Depends on where I am. I like a paperback if I am near water like the pool, beach or tub, but hardbacks are easier to deal with, as I don’t have to hold them up. That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but with syringomyelia holding your arms in one position for a long time can cause pain.

4. No. Just no. There are far too many. Hmmm…how about the last one I read? But if I had to make a list there would be several on it. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (this is one of the very few books that I re-read), The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter

5. The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. I love the concept, I just found it so very boring. I wish it had been written by David Baldacci or Vince Flynn.

6. Not really. Figure out what you want and go for it. There are so many people who never find the one person in life that they really bond with and someone wants me to believe there are so many guys fighting over one girl? Nah. Sorry for the cynicism.

7. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, but I am going to give it another shot. 

8. An Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff

9. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter (in person) and Good Me, Bad Me on my blog.

10. I am going to have to go with the Bible on this one. Still reading and learning from it!

11. Without Merit by Colleen Hoover Published October 3rd, 2017 by Atria Books

12. Karin Slaughter, David Baldacci, Catherine Coulter (FBI Series), Kate DiCamillo, Katherine Howell, James Patterson, Hank Phillippi Ryan

13. Either way, just let me have them!

14.  The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. (See Least Favorite Book)

15. Shame! Bookmarks!
16. To Kill a Mockingbird

17. Yes. Or while the TV is on.

18. Depends on the story and how well it is written. If it is a cop-out to having a character discover things, then no, but if there are two different people with completely different aspects of a situation then absolutely.

19. Depends on the book. Many I have read in one sitting, but some I just don’t get into that well and it takes me longer. There are also some that I want to listen to and I do that over several days.

20. Skyler Ward, Jessie Griffin, Kim Medley, Heidi Hepler,
