The Book Snob Tag

Why am I always late in doing tags πŸ™‚?

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:

Adaption Snob:
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:

Format Snob:
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?

Physical, duh.

Ship Snob:
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.

Genre Snob:
You have to ditch one genreβ€”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.

Community Snob:
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.

Snobbery Recipient:
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.

Aw, my lovely friends πŸ˜’πŸ’–

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 😊.

I Tag: You!! If you loved this post, be sure to do it and notify me πŸ˜„. I’d love to read your wonderful answers.

That’s all. Thanks for reading. Whoa, I had so much fun doing this tag. Let me know in the comments if you have ever been snubbed for reading a specific book.


Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

  1. This looks like a fun tag! Ok, so here are some of my answers to these questions:

    1. It mostly depends on the particular fandom. The exceptions to this are probably the HP series. Both the movies and the books are good!
    2. Physical books, ’cause they’re way better than e-books.
    3. Duh, I would. As long as they don’t disrespect my fandoms! πŸ˜‚
    4. Non fiction, cause I honestly don’t do autobiographies or biographies or self help books.
    5. Fantasy!! As much as I like reading horror/mystery/crime novels, they get a little too predictable or boring after some time. Fantasy is where ish is at!
    6. 10000% YA romance novels. You see this even in the Wartpad community, and that’s the motherload of all romance snobbery πŸ™„
    7. Nope, not really. Mainly cause my friends and I aren’t that book crazy, we’re more of casual readers.

    1. Yes dude, physical books rock! And I also think the HP movies were pretty awesome, they’re good when you are too lazy to go through 800 pages πŸ˜‚.
      Non-fiction, same!!
      I agree with you at fantasy, and yes, people are so snobbish when it comes to YA, uff!
      I loved reading your answers, Ss, and I appreciate you posting such a long comment πŸ˜ƒβ€

  2. Yesss I agree I love fantasy! and in terms of non fiction, I don’t mind autobiographies but I guess it depends who it’s about! I actually got told by my English teacher I read too much fiction and I need to start reading non-fiction! I read I Am Malala and it was really good though – she wrote as if she was talking to me!

    1. Fantasy does deserve quite the hype it gets! Autobiographies interest me too, but I’ve only read one, they have never really been on my tbr, haha. And oh, I Am Malala, aah that must be such an empowering book, no?

  4. Great answers, Nehal! I’m with you on almost all of them! 😊 However, I do like non-fiction, and I think I’d actually love if my partner was also a reader and we could talk books together! πŸ₯° I wouldn’t mind dating a non-reader either, though…
    And boy, yes, I have been snubbed for reading certain books – or not liking others 😀 Some people at university can have very elitist classical fiction attitudes… πŸ™„

    1. Thanks Naemi, glad you liked them 😁. Ah, I just haven’t read enough non-fiction. Autobiographies do interest me a lot, so I should probably start there (if ever).
      I just think for me it’ll be cool if the person doesn’t read coz opposites attract after all 😁. Plus it’ll make me so happy that the guy understands my love for reading! Even if he complains when I ignore him coz I’m reading…but that is thinking way into the future for now πŸ˜‚.
      I haven’t been snubbed thankfully, but it’s bad that you have, it must be so annoying!
