1.) Adaptation Snob: Do you always read the book before you see the movie?
Nooooo, oh my god no. See, I have friends, and those friends don’t read books and just want to maybe go see cute romance-y movies, which sometimes happen to be books first. I’ve done it, and I have no shame in it guys.
Examples: A Simple Favor, Alita: Battle Angel, Everything, Everything, After
2.) Format Snob: You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical, ebooks, or audiobooks?
Hello, physical! Physical forever and always. What am I going to do during a zombie apocalypse?! Have a non-working iPad to read books? No thanks.
3.) Ship Snob: Would you date or marry a non-reader?
I am currently right now, so that’s a very easy answer for me.
Here’s the thing: If a person doesn’t read, that doesn’t mean it won’t work out. Honestly, I don’t mind that he doesn’t read…. He listens. He will gladly listen to me be pissed off over a book, sad over a book. Ladies and Gents, as long as you’re partner LISTENS to you, you’re good.
4.) Genre Snob: You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?
GOOD-BYE HORROR! And gee, while you’re leaving my life for good, take all your movies with you!
5.) Uber Genre Snob: You can only choose to read form one genre for the rest of your life. Which genre do you choose?
MAN, This is tough! I don’t know! I guess I would have to say contemporary? I guess? It’s a pretty large genre so yeah, contemporary!
6.) Community Snob: Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?
Romance for sure! Do you guys even understand how much shit I get for liking Fifty Shades of Grey?
I feel like Romance books get such a bad wrap because honestly, in this day in age, people feel like every book should be giving them something. A lesson, a deeper meaning… Romance doesn’t usually deliver on that. It’s intended purpose I believe is to be fun, to make you feel romantic, to make you FEEL something. Fifty Shades of Grey never promised anyone to take anything away from it, just enjoy yourself reading it!
Geez… I might do a whole rant post on this because I just can’t!
7.) Snobbery Recipitent: Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?
YES! My parents, my brother, my boyfriend, my best friend have all said some b*llsh*t over me reading. They aren’t readers and think I am ‘stuck in a fantasy world’. I don’t take it to heart, I like reading and they don’t, so it’s fine. Really I’m the only one in my family who reads, and the only other person that did was my great-grandfather, and he passed away even before I was born. My grandmother has always told me I’m just like him, with my head always stuck in a book.
