Hello, it’s Friday the Thirteenth and it is a wet morning here in Kisumu. I’m on my third cup of instant black coffee and I fear I’ve run out of Nescafe. I came across this book tag on Abigail’s Books blog and it was created by Kate at Girl Reading. It’s the second book tag that fascinates me and so I thought, eh, why not? Let’s do this:
E-book or physical book?
Physical books any time or day, but I do prefer e-books when I am traveling.
Paperback or hardback?
Online or in-store book shopping?
I ❤ online book shopping because of the many recommendations that pop up which always introduces me to a new writer. I am also known to wander off in book stores.
Trilogies or series?
Can we stick to two books? I’ve written a series so here’s the pot calling the kettle black!
Heroes or villains?
Villains (psst! Don’t tell Peaches, he reckons I’m a good girl).
A book I want everyone to read.

Our world or fictional worlds?
Audiobooks- yes or no?
Ever judge a book by it’s cover?
Yes…like seriously who hasn’t?
Book to movie or book to TV adaptations?
No, what’s in print should stay there…but Marvel has me thinking differently.
A movie or TV show I preferred to its book
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Let’s just say that I never finished reading the book 😦
Series or standalones?
