The Ultimate Book Tag

Blank Etsy Shop Icon (8)

Happy Monday Book Worms! I found this book tag on Hunida’s blog! It has been some time since the last time I did a book tag, this one was fun to do and I enjoyed answering these questions.

Do you get sick while reading in the car?

No never! But I’m usually the one that has to drive anyways.

Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

There are some good ones out there but one that comes to mind would be Gregory Maguire. I love how detailed he is when writing his stories.

Harry Potter Series or Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

I never read books from both sides, however, I have seen the movies and I’m gonna go with the Harry Potter stories.

  • Harry Potter’s story is original and something you have not heard from another.
  • More intense and unique
  • Fell in love from the beginning of the story to the very end (In Twilight I hate the beginning but love the ending)

Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?

I don’t carry a book bag, used to when I was in school. When I leave the house I just put my book in a book sleeve and carry it or if it fits in my purse.

Do you smell your books?

Yes, I’m guilty of doing this every day! I love the smell of fresh print paper.

Books with or without little illustrations?

I don’t have a preference for this, so either way, I’m fine with it.

What book did you love while reading but, discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

I don’t ever re-read books. (Unless its the Warrior series)

Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

The only thing that comes to mind was when I was in 5th grade this boy in my class threw a textbook from the back of the classroom to the front almost hitting the teacher, she jumped and turned around so quickly. I’m guilty of laughing out loud about it. The teacher knew who was responsible.

What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

Learning To Crochet for left-handers.

What is the thickest book on your shelf?

Star Wars The Han Solo Trilogy.

Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I write just about every day, and I do see myself as an author one day.

When did you get into reading?

At a very young age. It was the number one thing I would do before bed.

What is your favorite classic book?

Lord Of The Flies by William Golding

In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?

It was definitely English!

If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?

I would keep it and put it on my bookshelf.

What is a lesser-known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

Nothing really comes to mind. Both those book series are original and very good. For The Hunger Games I would say Lord Of The Flies is a little and I mean very little similar to it but not really.

What is your favorite word?

Cake.

Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

Nerd, reading books, playing video games, computer games once in a while is cool.

Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies, attitude, glitter, and small creatures who are adorable.

Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Angels, because they are so holy! Also, they are a good lookout for the ones on Earth still.

Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves, I have always loved werewolf stories! I’m so fascinated with them that I used to be obsessed with reading any book about them. I really don’t have a main reason why.

Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires, Well you didn’t give me much a choice and I was never a fan of zombies.

Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

All about the forbidden love! Those are the best stories.

AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

It really depends here for me but I tend to go for the action-packed with few love scenes in the story, a good example would be Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

If you made it this far thank you for reading, Happy Reading!

Re-Reading My Favorite Book Series

4752319_f1024

Sixteen years ago I picked up a book that had an orange cat on the front cover with the title Warriors. I was obsessed with going to Barnes & Noble getting books and when I saw this book cover I had to get this book. I didn’t read what the book was about, I just knew I would love it just because there was a cat on the front cover and I grew up with having cats. I was eleven years old when I took home the very first Warrior book “Into The Wild”

With the seventh series “The Broken Code” coming out right now I had made the decision to stop reading YA novels for the moment and to re-read my favorite story of all time. Unfortunately, when I got older I had other books that I would pick up to read and never continue to finish the series. I only got as far as to series three “Power Of Three” So I know I have a lot to catch up on and finally get some closure as to what happens to my favorite characters in the story.

What this means by re-reading the series is I won’t be posting YA book reviews for some time until I catch up on the Warrior series, which won’t take long at all. Happy Reading!
