I like to think I’m not a book snob but in reality y’all probably think I am. And I’m okay with that. I like what I like *shrug emoji* Grey from Use Your Words was a darling and tagged me in this and it was originally created by tia and all the books on YouTube!
Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
I used to be a hardcore READ THE BOOK BEFORE THE MOVIE person but now like who has time for that? Really I don’t even watch that many movies or tv shows so it usually isn’t an issue. Right now I’d say I mostly read them after I see the adaptation.
Format Snob: You can only choose one format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, ebooks, or audiobooks?
This questions is stressing me out. I think I’ll go with physical books – at the end of the day I do prefer reading them because I don’t get distracted as easily and I read them quicker. Plus, I love seeing all of them on my shelves. But I wouldn’t be mad if something happened and I was only able to read ebooks because they’re so much easier to read when I’m at the hospital with Elliott which is a lot.
Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
I kind of did? My husband goes through phases where he loves to read but overall I’d definitely say he’s more of a non-reader. Do I try to force books on him because I wish he would read? Yes. Does it ever go well? No. Sometimes I wish we could curl up on the couch together with our respective books and spend a nice quiet evening like that but I instead I read while he plays video games and honestly I’m not mad about it.
Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
FAN-TA-SY! Really, are y’all surprised?
Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
I would seriously be perfectly happy only reading contemporary for the rest of my life. I mean, I kind of already exclusively read that genre anyway.
Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
I really can’t decide between romance and poetry. A ton of people seem to have the mindset that romance books aren’t to be taken seriously and that couldn’t be more wrong. When it comes to poetry people seem to think the opposite and assume it’s too pretentious which can be true sometimes but definitely not the majority of the time.
Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Yes. I think most adults that read middle grade and young adult novels have been snubbed. A lot of adults don’t consider young adult to be “actual novels” (whatever that means) but umm these books explore way deeper topics than adult fiction does and they’re way more diverse so I think I’ll keep them.
Do you think I’m a book snob or am I pretty laid back? Let me know in the comments!
