The Bookish Snob Tag

I was tagged in this by Riddhi at Whispering Stories. Her blog has an amazing aesthetic, you should check it out.

There’s a bunch of questions about what bookish things you’re a snob about, so here goes!

ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?

Pretty much! I can’t think of many occasions where I’ve watched the movie / tv show first. Game of Thrones maybe? I really struggled to get into the book so I gave up. With this one, I’m all for you do you. Books and films give me different forms of enjoyment so it depends what I’m in the mood for!

FORMAT SNOBYou 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?

Physical books for sure. I really love beautiful books, they make reading an entirely different experience. I also love the practicality of eBooks though – love taking my kindle on holiday with me. Audiobooks are a bit of a miss for me – I find it really hard to listen to books. I did enjoy Becoming by Michelle Obama though!

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

I guess so if they didn’t mind me reading a lot. I am lucky enough to be living with my future husband who is a huge fan of books, though our taste doesn’t really overlap that much. He actually gave me his copy of Bel Canto by Ann Patchett when we first started dating, so that particular book is special to both of us.

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

Not sure to be honest – maybe horror? I’ve never been a big horror fan, though I do like Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo.

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

Fantasy. I do love contemporary novels but honestly, fantasy is such a perfect escape from the real world and the majority of my favourites are in this genre. I’d be sad never to read Meat Market by Juno Dawson again though!

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

Oooooh, maybe fantasy? Some people are really judgy about fantasy, particularly about female authors. Romance gets its fair share of judgement though.

There we have it, I have no idea who started this tag, but it was fun.

I am going to tag:

Jaye @ The Book Berrie

Sam @ Esoteric Elixir

Linaria @ Linaria’s Library

Meaghan @ Paragraphs and Pages

Janel @ Janel Allison

Vicky @ What Vicky Read

Cláudia @ Enchanted by Books

Alison @ Antari Reads

No pressure with any of these tag things but definitely check out each other’s blogs!

  1. Love this tag and your answers! And I definitely agree – romance authors and readers get a ton of crap even though there are many amazing romances out there!
