The Would You Rather Book Tag

November 10, 2020 Let's Discuss, Tags 11

I’m not sure where this version of this book tag actually originated, but I saw it over at a GREAT read. (I’ve definitely seen other versions of it as well.) I thought it was a really fun one and decided to jump in!


Would you rather only read physical books for the rest of your life or only audiobooks?

This is kind of hard, actually. I lean toward physical books, but this is the rest of my life we’re talking about here. Audiobooks are great for when I can’t actually read for some reason—like I’m sick or I can’t concentrate or something. What if, when I’m old, my eyes aren’t what they used to be? Still, I think I’ll go with physical books and just hope for the best!

Would you rather know all the spoilers before you start a book or never read the last chapter?

I guess I’ll go with spoilers (though, honestly, the last chapter is usually just the falling action and the resolution, which could possibly be missed).

Would you rather read a book with a really bad ending or a book where your favorite character is killed off?

I’d definitely rather have my favorite character killed off. Sorry, faves.

Would you rather love a book everyone hates or hate a book everyone loves?

Well, who wants to hate a book? I’d definitely rather love a book everyone hates.

Would you rather read books by your favorite author but they’re all really bad or read books by an author you hate but they’re all really good.

Once again, it’s really hard to choose bad books here. But why would I hate an author who writes really good books? The only reason I can think of is the fact that the author is just a plain bad person, which would kind of ruin the books for me anyway if I knew that. So, I guess I’d read the bad ones? And maybe rethink my favorite author?

Would you rather only ever read contemporary books for the rest of your life or fantasy?

Fantasy, for sure.

Would you rather own a signed edition or a first edition?

I think a signed edition since I don’t pay much attention to first editions.

Would you rather never be able to borrow a book from the library again or never reread your favorite book?

This one’s easy since I rarely reread. I’d definitely miss my library if I couldn’t check out books!!

Would you rather spend the day in your favorite fictional world but never meet your favorite character, or spend the day as the villain and try to attack/kill that favorite character?

I’d be a pretty terrible villain and I would feel horrible forever if I had to torture my favorite character, so I’m definitely going with never meeting them.

    I don’t really pay attention to first editions either, and would also go with physical copies! I also think spoilers isn’t that bad really. I’ve heard it said that if spoilers completely ruin a book for you and you get no enjoyment out of reading it since you’ve been spoiled, it means the book isn’t actually that good DD: And I might agree with that a bit. I also would always want to love a book versus hate it!!

    Some of these are tough. The first one is easy for me because I don’t listen to audios, so physical books it is! I would miss re-reading favorites, but I couldn’t go without library books. I mean, I’m a LIBRARIAN! lol

    I actually love first editions! I think it’s so cool, especially with older books, because it’s like having a piece of history in your hands. But, I also fangirl over signed novels too.

    I loved your answers! I found myself agreeing with so many of them! 🙂 The one we differ on, however, would be the “signed” vs. “first edition”–if I could get a hold of some of my favorites as first editions–oh, I would be so thrilled! 🙂

    Some of these questions are impossible lol! For me I’d rather be able to re-read my favorite books, because I do that a lot. Sometimes I just re-read a favorite scene that will make me smile or laugh. I’d miss the library more for my kids since we borrow 10+ books every other week for them through the library and overdrive, but I can’t imagine giving up my re-reads ack!

    I feel like I hate books that everyone loves all the time, so it would be nice to find a hidden gem that no one seems to appreciate and give it some love!

    And I definitely would choose my library over a reread. Even though I love rereading my favorite parts of books, I rely on my library too much for both physical and e-book copies to be able to give that up!

    I always find it interesting to see what other people would choose though!
