A massive thank you to Light of the Bookworm for tagging me in this! I loved your answers, and I can’t wait to share mine! This is seven things I like in a book, enjoy!
1. A beautiful cover!
So I’m gonna have to go with the same answer for this one. I loooooooove a beautiful cover on a book! Especially when they have beautiful dust jackets and a beautiful hardback cover (for example, the beauty that is King of Scars – stunning!)
2. A floppy book
You know those paperbacks that are just so floppy? They just fall open and the spine doesn’t break, and they’re just a joy to hold? Yeah I love those! I always love it when I find a book I want to read and it’s a ‘floppy book’, I will 9 times out of 10 buy it there and then!
3. End papers
I love when books have gorgeous end papers. It’s like a little secret cover inside the book! My favourite one at the moment is the end papers in Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This was a collage of concert tickets for the band in various cities around the world in so many colours, and it’s gorgeous!
4. Short chapters
I love a book with short chapters! I mean, I love books with long chapters too, but I’d much rather read a book with short chapters. I know that, with short chapters, I can read and finish one or two on the way to or from work, on my lunch, even before bed. I know that I’ll finish reading at the end of a chapter, rather than in the middle. I love short chapters!
5. Great character friendships
I love a book with solid friendships! Friendships like Kate and August in the Monsters of Verity duology, and Kate and Rosemary in The Lido. Both very different friendships, but both are beautiful! I loved reading about these characters so much!
6. A twist
I love a good twist, one you don’t expect but when you look back the clues are all there!! My favourite book with a few twists at the moment is A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, that book kept me on my toes!!
7. When a series has matching covers
I love when book covers match, and when they stay matching throughout the entire publication of the series!!
I’m sorry this post took me so long to get around to posting/finishing (nearly a month I think)! I started this the day I was tagged and I just haven’t managed to get around to it properly since! Sorry!! It’s here though, better late than never, right?!
I tag: anyone who wants to do this tag!
