When I saw this tag done by Katelyn @ From Cover to Cover, I thought it was such a cool and unique idea and it definitely tells us some things about ourselves and how much of a book snob we can be 😉😉. Shoutout to the creator @ tia and all the books for this fun tag. Don’t forget to checkout both of their blog and booktube respectively for more amazing content. And now let’s get started…!!!!
1. Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
I can’t always guarantee that I’ll do this. I watched the LOTR trilogy before reading the books and I felt it made me understand and imagine the books better. I still haven’t read Crazy Rich Asians but adored the movie. However, I did read Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda after watching the movie trailer (but before the movie). So, I guess it all depends on my level of interest in the content and in which medium I want to consume it.
2. 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?
Ebooks. Definitely. I read majority of my books already in the digital format, so that’s what I will choose.
3. Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Well, I’m already married to a non-reader, so I guess that answers the question.
4. Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
I already never read Horror, so I will happily ditch it 🙂 But if I have choose from genres that I do actually read, I think I would go for Political Non-Fiction. As we are living the current political climate across the globe, reading about it only makes me more sad anyways.
5. Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Definitely Fantasy. And just to be on the safer side, I’m not going to mention the age range/ readership.
6. Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Romance without a doubt. Even though it’s the highest selling genre in the country, both it’s writers and readers are considered frivolous or shallow, just for wanting to read/write stories about characters getting their happily ever after. But I love reading my romances and I always will.
7. Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Ohh all the time. My family thinks it’s a waste of time reading anything that isn’t related to work or doesn’t help me in “developing” myself. And I just don’t have the patience to explain to anyone what reading a fantasy or a romance or a contemporary novel gives me, and what I learn from them or just the pure pleasure I derive from reading. I’m not gonna stop reading them and I could care less about anyone’s opinion on it.
