I have not done a tag in a hot second so when I saw this post on Tea and Turned Pages blog I figured I would give it a go! I was not tagged and didn’t tag anyone, but if you want to do it you should!
Also, I don’t consider myself a book snob, but maybe my answers will reveal that I am (I really am not lol).
What is ironic is that my coworker just asked me last week if I was a book snob too.
Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
Not always! Usually if I am excited for an adaptation I have read the book, but sometimes I don’t want to read the adaptation (Poldark) or plan on getting to it later (Sanditon). Sometimes I did not even realize that the movie was based book a book and end up picking it up later (Legally Blonde) or decided not to read the book (Mean Girls).
Some of my favorite adaptations are Love, Simon, The Hate U Give, & The Princess Diaries (even though the books are so different).
Format Snob: You can only choose one format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks?
As much as I love ebooks and audiobooks I would have to chose physical copies. I cannot give those up!
Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a nonreader?
Wasn’t something like this going around Twitter like last week? But, I don’t need to date a reader. I just need someone who respects my love of books, but they don’t have to read.
Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
Probably Science Fiction. I rarely pick up the genre to begin with a tend to rarely enjoy them. (But, this does not count Star Wars fanfiction okay?)
Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read from one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Based on my experiences, the romance community. So many readers are dismissive of the genre without trying it. Now, it definitely is not for everyone, but at least try a few before dismissing the entire genre. One of my favorite things about romance books is that they are (typically) written by women for women which is cool!
Snobbery Recipient: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
Bree called me dramatic for listening to The Scorpio Races audiobook twice in three months and now she has read the ENTIRE Folk of Air series in five months so now she gets it. Also, IRL people think it’s a bit odd that a twenty something year old reads Young Adult fiction. But, for the most part people haven’t been too snobby to me regarding my reading habits.
Thanks for reading!
