Welcome back, owlnerds! A new Monday, a new post. Enjoy!
I found this book tag from Kristen’s blog.
What is up, you guys? Welcome back to another weekly blog post. As you can see from the title, I am doing a book tag which I have not done for a long time. I found this tag on https://sunsetsandbookfests.com/2017/01/20/a-to-z-book-tag/.
Harry Potter or The Boxcar Children
The Tower Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
Show me by Gabriella Slade
Mountain Dew/soda (night) Tea/water (day)
Snape or Darcy (my reaction to your reaction, I know I am crazy.)
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Not by Sight by Kate Breslin
Starting to reading consistently at the age of twelve.
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
I typically don’t jump into romance books. It’s just that nowadays that people don’t understand that there is a thing called inappropriateness. If you know what I am talking about, why? Noone wants to read that. And if you do, why?
Les Miserable by Victor Hugo
The One by Kiera Cass, the end felt as though it was rushed. I am like. Why? Why would you do that to me?
I have one. The reason why is, half the books I get are from the library. I probably need around 2,000 dollars to buy all the books I have enjoyed. So if you want to buy me anything, an Amazon/Barnes and Noble gift card. *wink wink*
Carrie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Bank
There’s some good left in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.” – Samwise, Lord of the Rings
Following the trending books and getting disappointed. Believing they’re different than any other book today.
The Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan, Lunar Chronicles, The Wingfeather Saga, The Giver Quartet, The Inheritance Cycle, Matched, Grisha Verse, Six of Crows, and Rebel of the Sands
The Odyssey by Homer
Kristian’s War by Peter Wisan
Martin Hospitality by Abigayle Claire
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen
The Theif, The Damsel, and The Dragon by Angela Watts
Cinder by Marissa Meyers.
See ya next week. My people of the book community.
I found this book tag on Lizzy’s blog.
The rules of the book sacrifice tag:
You are given a situation and you have to choose a book for each situation.All situations are fictional.
1) An Over-Hyped Book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a bookstore just browsing when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA system, saying that military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hate? So you start chucking at the zombies; knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wiped them out?!?
Answer: I had heard great things about J.K. Rowling new work, The Cursed Child. Its sucked. There was no originality. Are you crazy? Only thing I liked was the humor. Yuck.
2) A Sequel: Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Answer: Go Set a Watchman. The story itself was weird and by the end of the story, I didn’t understand what the story was even about.
3) Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?
Answer: Although I didn’t even get halfway to the story, Catcher in The Rye by J.D. Salinger sucked. He talked about how “horrible” is his life was. So much language.
4) Let ’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM! Global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You ’re trapped and your only chance of survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run, your least favorite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?
I decided to mix the book tag “Who are your book boyfriends?” with fictional boyfriends from tv shows/movies. Enjoy.
Merlin: Well obviously who doesn’t like Colin Morgan. Then again, I might be just a third wheel with Merlin and Arthur’s bromance.
Gwaine: Who can say no to this face?
Snape: Snape is my favorite male character in the whole series. He dislikes Harry Potter, me too. No one would touch me since everyone is intimidated by him. A win, win.
Darcy from 1995 Pride and Prejudice
Ty: I am currently finishing the tv show on Netflix then I will rewatch the series again to prepare for the new seasons coming out. Then again who doesn’t want a boyfriend like Ty.
*coughs* Tom Hiddleston
William Buxton (Return to Cranford)
*coughs again* Benedict Cumberbatch
I can’t watch any nature documentaries that have him as a narrator. My face will get bright red. XD
And that’s it. Thanks for making my face blush.
1. You have 20,000 books in your TBR, how in the world do you decide what to read next?
It really depends on what mood I have.
2. You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?
It depends on why I dislike it. Death boring, I will continue reading. Cursing or inappropriate scenes, it’s a no go.
3. The end of the year is coming and you’re behind on your reading challenge, do you try to catch up? And if so, how?
I will try. I will read short books, ebooks, children’s books, or whatever I can get my hands on.
4. The covers of a series you love do not match, how do you cope?
I will survive. It really depends if its a paperback vs hardback.
5. Everyone and their mother loves a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
Find someone. Look through Pinterest, they has to be someone who has the same opinion.
6. You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?
I have never cried for any fictional situation so I wouldn’t know. Don’t judge me.
7. The sequel to a book you loved just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happens. Are you going to reread it?
It really depends how thick the first book is. At times, I don’t care about the first book. I just want to read the sequel.
8. You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?
Sorry, I would love to share my books but I miss already when I am not home. I will continuously text you making sure my babies are safe. It’s safer still in case something happens. You might disappear from the face of this earth.
9. You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?
I will read from a different genre.
10. There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read, how many do you end up buying?
All of them, if I had the money for it. Usually five or anything under $100.
11. After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?
It really depends. If I am already reading something, I will wait until I finish the book. Or I will dive right into the books.
I tag: Emmaline
So in this tag, you are to write all the unread books on your bookshelves. I tag anyone. The good thing about the shame tag is half the books I have on my “to read” I don’t own. I usually go to the library to get them.
And there you have it. 24 books of 86 books. Not including textbooks and cookbooks.
What books are on your to read books?
