Why am I always late in doing tags 🙂?
Hey Pals!! Today, I am doing The Book Snob Tag. I was tagged by Riddhi @ Whispering Stories for this one so a big thanks to her for the tag. When did she tag me, you might ask? Oh, not long, just about an eternity ago or something. She has a super cool site of bookish content you definitely shouldn’t miss out. So, do have a look. And now, for the tag:
Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
Preferably yes. But at times, I do watch the adapted movies of certain books, but that sometimes demotivates me from reading the book so I avoid it as much as possible. For instance: after watching Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, I was like:
You can only choose one format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which do you choose: physical books, e-books, or audiobooks?
Would you date or marry a non-reader?
Absolutely! It doesn’t matter if my partner reads books or not as long he respects my love for reading. And who knows, maybe I’ll make him a reader too 😎. But I guess I would actually prefer a non-reader as a partner.
You have to ditch one genre—never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Non-fiction 😁. Easy! I read books to escape the real world and non-fiction is mostly the real world. I am not a fan of it, I don’t hate it but I just don’t often find myself reaching for that genre too often. So, I would happily bid it farewell.
Uber Genre Snob:
You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Fantasy because that includes several of my other favourite genres like dystopian, science fiction and romance. So I’ll get a combo. Fantasy in itself is not actually my favourite genre anymore. My favourite is historical fiction, but reading too much of it might bore me, so fantasy it is.
Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Romance definitely. I also feel like at times boys are mocked for reading YA and many adults mock people who read YA which is ludicrous. We have a to read whatever we like and nobody has the right to insult those who read stuff that they enjoy. This is something that really drives me crazy.
Have you ever been snubbed for something you have been reading or for reading in general?
Not really. Over time, my friends have always realized that I love books a lot and they respect it. They don’t make comments about it. It’s like when you are a BTS fan and you try to bring them in all conversations, then your friends are like: uhh, he’s started again. But they don’t actually insult you. That’s the case with me.
When I was younger, at times I used to hide the fact that I read a lot from certain people but they never actually felt like was being boring and stuff at all which made me open up to being honest about my passion. So, now if someone asks me what I’m doing, I happily say that yes, I am reading 😊.
