The Bookish Snob Tag

I was tagged for this by Riddhi at Whispering Stories. Go check out her blog, she posts a lot of great reviews and hosts some really thoughtful discussions! I know I’m very late, sue me 🙂

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

This was actually a rule that was made by my mother when I was around 3, or 4. I was wanting to watch this Dr Suess Movie (I don’t remember which one), and she created a rule that to watch any movie, if it had a book, I needed to read the book first. I think the only time I’ve ever broken this rule is when Murder on the Orient Express came to theatres, and I hadn’t read the book yet, and we booked our seats for the first screening, so I never had time to read the book. I still did read the book the day after we saw the movie, but that’s beside the point.

  • 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?

I would probably choose physical books because I love the feel of holding an actual book, and the smell of the pages. The experience you get while reading eBooks and physical books is completely different. I don’t really enjoy audiobooks or even when people read-aloud to me. I’m not sure why, but I just don’t like it.

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

It honestly doesn’t make a difference to me as long as they don’t mind me reading.

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

Definitely anything non-fiction. I don’t really enjoy non-fiction that much, and barely read it anyway. My parents have really tried to get me to read non-fiction more, but I just can’t, oops!

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

Fantasy! Although I love other genres too, I love Fantasy! I love the world-building, and imagination. Most of my favourite books are in this genre, so I would probably pick Fantasy 🙂

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

I would say either Fantasy or YA romance. A lot of people categorise YA romance as “quirky” and “cheesy” when a lot of it really isn’t. A ton of people also criticise world-building and character-traits in Fantasy, I don’t know why.

This was my first ever tag, and I’ve got to say it was really fun. Thanks again Riddhi for tagging me:)

  1. This is was a lovely post to read! I enjoyed all your GIFs too – they were perfect 🙂 I also really love the fantasy genre, though for some reason this year I’ve been reading wayyy more YA contemporary romance novels (probably because those ones are my comfort reads, and let’s be honest, this year has been a doozy and we need all the comfort we can get). Also, it’s amazing that you always read the book before you see the movie! I’m going to just come out and confess that I don’t do this as much as I should. Sometimes I just want to watch the movie right then and I tell myself that I’ll read the book eventually….and I don’t. haha! Anyways, this was a fun post and I enjoyed reading it!

  2. Yes! I’ve been trying to get into audiobooks since I’ve been so busy & have hardly had any time to read – I thought it would be the perfect solution! Alas no, I just can’ttttt people sound so pretentious when they read Idk why 😅 Also I kinda can’t deal with all the narrator’s American accents i’m just not use to hearing them & they never stick in my brain properly!
    The one audiobook I’ve genuinely really loved is Coraline by Neil Gaiman (read by the author himself!) so if you’re still up to try I’d recommend that 💞

    1. I completely agree with you!! I wish I could – but I just can’t stand audio books!! I can’t visualise the same, and the people reading sound so pretentious! I would love to try out Coraline, because maybe that’d get me more interested in audiobooks? I mean, it’s not that I don’t want to I just can’t. Oops! Thanks for the rec though ❤🙂
