20 Questions Book Tag

I found this fun tag at 20 Questions Book Tag-by JenniElyse.
So here I go with another fun tag!!

1.How many books are too many books in a series? I think this depends on whether the author can keep a good plot/strong interest in that particular book-such as The Harry Potter series.(My favorite series).
2.How do you feel about cliffhangers?
I like them well enough-but it can get aggravating if you can't get the next book right away!!
3.Do you prefer hardcovers or paperbacks?I prefer paperbacks!!
4.What is your favorite book? Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone.
5.What is your least favorite book?Um, I really don't know.
6.Love triangles:yes or no? No!
7.What is the most recent book you just couldn't finish?It has been too long since I did not finish a book!
8.Name a book you are currently reading:The Which Way Tree by Elizabeth Crook.
9.What is the oldest book you've read? Macbeth
10.What was the last book you recommended to someone?The Final Six by Alexandra Monir-it is fantastic!!
11.What is the newest book you've read?The Final Six was an ARC I read before the release on March 6th,2018.
12.Who is your favorite author?I cannot pick just one because they all have different styles.
13.Do you prefer to buy books or borrow them?Buy! I don't borrow from the library, however I usually get good paperbacks from there!
14.What is a book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?I haven't had that issue yet...
15.Do you prefer bookmarks or dog-earing? Bookmarks!! people who dog-ear are lazy and ignorant. It destroys the book.
16.What is a book you can reread? Definitely Harry Potter-the first 3!! I don't usually re-read either, also The Stephanie Plum books-I love them also!!(Janet Evanovich).
17.Can you read while listening to music?No, I get into the book or I get into the music!!
18.Do you prefer one POV or multiple POV's? Again it depends on the storyline.
19.Do you read a book in one sitting or over a few days? I take a few days, but have read a book in one day. If I get that engrossed I will read it quick.
20.What book have you read because of the cover? The Final Six-Alexandra Monir

I won this book in a contest several months ago and have just now finished it, not because I didn't want to-I enjoyed this read immensely.,I just had so much going on and now I can say I did enjoy it as I certainly took my time reading it..LOL.

This is the 8th book in the Library Lover's series, so I now I want to read the other 7...!!
Excerpt: Lindsey Norris and her staff are gearing up for Briar Creek's annual Dinner in the Stacks fund-raiser. A night of dinner and dancing-the biggest fund-raiser of the year. The new library board president decides to make a scene. 
Olive Boyl-the new president is out to make trouble. However, Lindsey just wants things to go smoothly.

WHAT I LIKED: The way Jenn builds up all the personalities in this particular book means this could be a standalone even though it is part of a series. Of course  I love the fact that it's about libraries-which is soon to be extinct!! I just LOVE the name Olive Boyl. (Are you kidding?) Let's have fun with this for a second-ok first off-Boyl-boil-as in an annoying disturbance in the skin-so that's fitting.Olive Boyl-Popeye's girlfriend-Olive Oyl anyone? Love the humor!! And then finally, there is just Olive Oil-as in greasy,hehe. Yep I can imagine Jenn getting a kick out of this name!! LOL.
Now to resume what else I liked? Easy to read, love the setting, and the actual murderer was not who I first thought!!
So that is always good.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE?- It just didn't engross me as I was hoping.  Over all though it is a good read.

4 Cokes
Which means I really liked it, but Pepsi is my favorite!
