The Book Snob Tag

I saw this book tag on Amy @Golden Books Girl’s blog and decided I wanted to join in with the fun!

Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the film?

Absolutely!!! If I know there is a book then I will typically read it first. And then if I like the book I will probably decide not to actually watch the film because I am too precious about my favourite books. I am one of those people who never partakes in fan-casting, never hopes that a beloved book will be adapted really. I firmly believe that the book is always better… I mean okay yes, there are a few instances when the opposite is true but these are indeed the rarity in my eyes. So 100% I am an adaptation snob and proud lol!

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?

Puh-lease… No competition here. Physical books all the way!! I love the feel of a book in my hands, the smell, the ease on my eyesight… I do read eBooks and own an eReader but physical is always best. I don’t like audiobooks at all. Far too passive a format for my liking.

Yes I am Alicia!

Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?

I suppose… I wouldn’t be happy about it though!!!

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

Out of genres that I actually read on a regular basis I would have to ditch fantasy. Anything with fae characters or wizards and magic… Buh-byeeeeeeeeee!!!

Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?

Contemporary. 100% The majority of books that I rate five stars these days are all contemporary novels.

I would feel sad about saying good bye to Science Fiction though.

Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Anything romance related. I don’t know if it’s necessarily the bookish community that snubs it but there is definitely a perception out there that romance led books are somehow less than and only read by *ditsy females*. I utterly dispute and oppose that viewpoint. Books with an emphasis on romance are just as valid as any other genre of books. Read what you love people! Forget the haters!!

And that’s it for this tag! Definitely a fun one right?

I’m not going to tag anyone in particular to do this but if you do wanna partake please pingback to this post or link it in the comments below so I can see your answers.

  2. LOVE this tag, Emer! Another one that I think I’m going to steal very soon 😏 You do all the best tags and have now become my main source for them! Haha but omggg I don’t think I could ditch fantasy. I love it too much to ditch it! That’s gonna be a hard one to choose 😂 And I totally agree about romances! SO sick of the judgement I get whenI say I read romance 🙄 Great post and answers, lovely!

  3. definitely fun! which genre would I ditch – for me it would also be anything involving ghosts, witches, spirits etc. Which one would I have to keep? Nineteenth century novels I think (they tend to be long and very re-readable so no danger of running out of material)

    1. Oooh that’s interesting. How do you feel about slightly gothic themed reads (I’m thinking Setterfield, Zafon etc). I’m not a fan of true fantasy nor horror but sometimes those witchy reads can be quite appealing to me


  4. This looks like fun. Loved your choice of gifs, they made me laugh! 😂 I’m a fan of ‘ditsy girl’ reads! They’re usually my happy place after having to do uni assignments (like today… 😭). Great post!
