Book Tag – Inside & Out

Hello, wonderlandians. How was your Tuesday? I will be sleeping when this post goes up so mind starting out great because I’ll be asleep. Then I have to wake up and go to work. Wouldn’t it be great if blogging could be a full-time job? I think it would be great because then that way I can dedicate most of my day to making awesome content. I know the Driven review that I did took me about two days to do because one my computer is still not with me. Then I also have limited time throughout the day. So I was working on that specific blog post for the time allotted in my day.

Honestly this lot is always on my mind and I’m always thinking of better ways that I can do things in terms of formatting reviews and all that stuff. So this is like a full-time job but I have like a real full-time job. I don’t know I guess this is a long exclamation to I would really like Paul going to be like my job. Because it doesn’t feel like work it’s just fun. And You guys make this super fun to do.

Today is tag prompt comes to us from Lost in Pages.

1. Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough

I find that I like the book summaries to be on the back of the book. If the summary is on the inside flap I don’t tend to read them and just buy the book based on the cover. But to be truthful I don’t buy a ton of physical copies of books. The physical copies that I do have are pretty much a box that I’ve already read and want to have the physical copy.

2. New book: What form do you want it in? Be honest: Audiobook, E-Book, Paperback, or Hardcover?

For a new book go for two different formats I typically tend to go for audiobook or E-Book. Some new books in the e-book format don’t have audiobooks attached to them. So I will go for that format. If the book does come with an audio that I will pick up both because I find the audio is cheaper if you get the e-book.

3. Scribble while you read? Do you like to write in your books, take notes, make comments, or do you keep your books clean clean clean?

When it comes to a physical copy of a book I do not like to deface it. This is my personal opinion I do not like writing in my book. So I like to keep it clean. But I do like to annotate with sticky notes. When it comes to my e-book copies I actually highlight passages because I like the way that it looks. So in e-books yes I will highlight make notes in little notes section and that’s what I like.

4. Does it matter to you whether the author is male or female when you’re deciding on a book? What if you’re unsure of the author’s gender?

Honestly no it doesn’t bug me if the other is male or female. Typically when I go and look at a book I’m not looking at who the author is until after I read the book. So what grabs my attention is the cover and the synopsis of the book. The only time that matters is when I’m doing a review of a book because I want to give that author specific credit. But if I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl I will just typically say the author or I will put the full name of the author. But whether it goes to the story writing no it doesn’t matter because I found either you’re a good writer or you’re a bad writer and it really doesn’t matter what sex you are.

5.  Ever read ahead? or have you ever read the last page way before you got there? 

Sadly, yes I do read ahead in my books. It’s not that I’m trying to spoil myself it’s that if I’m at a particular scene that is slow I wanted to know when some exciting parts are going to be happening so that way I can determine if I want to keep with the book or not.

6.  Organized bookshelves, or outrageous bookshelves?

Just re-organized my bookshelf so as of right now and organized bookshelf. Once I get more books then it will be an outrageous bookshelf.

7.  Have you ever bought a book based on the cover (alone)?

Yes, I do. Now I try to go by the method of if the synopsis grabs me or not. If it doesn’t then I don’t get the box even if the cover is really beautiful.

8. Take it outside to read, or stay in?

I like both.Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.

Until next time

Much love

  1. Thanks for doing the tag, Ashten! I love your answers. I love that there are people who enjoy the audio and e-book versions of books more. We have created a stigma in the book community that physical books are better, but that’s not true! As long as you are loving the story, then who cares?


  2. This is a super fun tag… very relatable and engaging.I was thinking about my own personal answers before reading yours haha!


  3. Looks like a fun tag! I hear ya on all the comments.. I am especially like in getting a book based on cover. I have been guilty of it and I love new releases in ebooks!
