I saw Grace over at Rebel Mommy Book Blog do the This or That tag (originally created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks), and thought it looks like a lot of fun, so let's jump right in.
Reading on the couch or in bed?
Bed. I'm not a huge fan of reading on the couch (mostly because my couch isn't that comfortable), and most of my daytime reading is done via audiobook.
Main male character or main female character?
Female, but only because I think a lot of writers, especially in the contemporary romance genre, don't do a male POV justice at all.
I really enjoy a well done dual POV, too! All these are fantastic.
Sweet or salty snacks while reading?
I really like fruit while reading, and also pretzels and hummus, and cheerios, and toast, and really I just like to eat. ;) So both!
Trilogies or Quartets?
First person POV or third person POV?
First, always first! I cannot stand third person at all.
Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry?
So...confession time: I don't usually cry during books. It takes something really horrible to make me cry while reading (or anything happening to a dog, because that's instant tears that won't quit), and at that point I just don't enjoy it.
I much prefer laughing, perhaps with a little swoony tears mixed in.
Reading at night or reading in the morning?
I don't like doing anything in the morning, so...night!
Libraries or bookstores?
Used bookstores! I really like nice libraries too, but the one here makes me feel like I'm going to catch something if I touch anything.
Black book covers or white book covers?
I like both, but my eyes are more drawn to colorful covers than black or white. Going by my bookcase though, I have a lot more black.
Character driven or plot driven books?
Character, hands down. Obviously both are ideal, but I don't care how great the plot is if the character sucks.
