Booking Through Thursday 16/01/14
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.
All other things (writing quality, story, etc), which would you rather read?
This is a tough one because for me at least, there isn't really a straight answer, so here goes.
1. Something written by a man or a woman?
I won't pick up something to read just because it's written by a man or a woman, I have no preference. But just as the way it falls, with the genres I read, the majority of them I read ARE written by women. For example paranormal romance and New Adult novels. But then I also love John Green. It's a mix.
2. Something with a male or female protagonist?
Again, my favourite is a mix. I tend to read a lot of romance, so I like to have both the guy's and girl's point of view. For example Pushing the Limits or Perfect Chemistry.
3. Something funny or something tragic?
I don't tend to like books that make me depressed or really bring me down. So I would sway twoards something light hearted and funny.
4. Something short or something long with many parts?
While I don't mind long books per say, but with work, etc I sway towards average-to-short books because of blogging and vlogging I want to make sure I have content to post, so I don't always want to get hung up on a particularly large book.
5. Something simple or something layered?
Again this is a 'depends-what-I-feel-like reading' one. Sometimes I really fancy the layers and intricacy of a fantasy novel such as Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, sometimes I really want to reading something simple that I don't have to think too much about, such as Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines.
