Your Favorite Music Book Tag

Hello everybody! Today I decided that I’d do another book tag (as I am currently procrastinating from writing a book review…). This tag I was actually tagged in and I was tagged by a book blogger friend, Debbie from Debbie’s Library. Not only did she tag me in this, but she was the creator of this tag as well!

So today I’m back with a tag to do! And this time I was actually tagged by somebody to do it. I was tagged in this by Twin Reads, so let’s get right on into it! Continue reading “The School Subjects Book Tag”

February (2017) Monthly Wrap-Up

februarymonthlywrap-up

This is probably the most pink I’ll ever put on my blog. Anyway, February has come to an end, which means it’s time for the month of the Irish, which means my favorite color green will make an appearance or two. Anyway, I’m back with a monthly wrap-up, so let’s get started. Continue reading “February (2017) Monthly Wrap-Up”

Does Popularity Mean That I’ll Like It? Tag

kidding

Hello everybody! I’m back today with a tag that I was tagged in by Debbie over at Debbie’s Library. Y’all should check out her blog if you haven’t already. This tag is a bit on the negative side, as I will be voicing some of my unpopular opinions on books. I don’t know why but I like talking about books I didn’t like. Anyway, yeah. I am at 186 followers on this blog and this will be my 99th post! That’s amazing! If y’all could try and get me to 200 followers before the end of the week, I may have something in store for you (Giveaway *wink wink*) so without further ado, let’s get on with the tag. Continue reading “Does Popularity Mean That I’ll Like It? Tag”

Who Am I? Tag

Hello peoples! (I hope you love the picture I used as my featured image, I just had to it’s hilarious). So this tag is not a book tag (and doesn’t really have anything to do with books at all) but I decided that I’d do it anyway. Why, may you ask? Well because this tag is about me as a person and I kind of feel like you guys know my interests in books by now and all of that, but I still feel like you don’t know me much as a person. I saw this tag done on Life and Other Disasters, so make sure to check out Kat’s post as well. I wasn’t tagged, but I thought you guys might like to learn a bit more about me, so here we go! (But before I start this, you may want to get a beverage or a snack because this post ended up being way longer than I intended it to be).


What is the meaning of my name?

I assume you mean my real name, and not my blog name, or at least that’s what Kat did. Well my name is Savannah, and *Googles my name real quick* apparently is just the name meaning an open plain. Gosh I knew about the Savanna in Africa but I thought maybe the name for a person would mean something different. I’m Native American and the website I’m currently reading at the moment says that the name Savannah comes from the Native American word “Zabana” – which still means open plain.

What is my Myer-Briggs personality type? [LINK]

It’s quiz time! So I took the quiz and my personality type is Advocate (INFJ-T). Hmm… I wonder what that means. My role is Diplomat (laughs) and my strategy is Constant improvement. Here are my more in-depth results:

  • 87% Introverted

“Introverted individuals prefer solitary activities and get exhausted by social interaction. They tend to be quite sensitive to external stimulation (e.g. sound, sight or smell) in general.”

  • 71% Intuitive

“Intuitive individuals are very imaginative, open-minded and curious. They prefer novelty over stability and focus on hidden meanings and future possibilities.”

  • 54% Feeling

“Feeling individuals are sensitive and emotionally expressive. They are more empathetic and less competitive than Thinking types, and focus on social harmony and cooperation.”

  • 56% Judging

“Judging individuals are decisive, thorough and highly organized. They value clarity, predictability and closure, preferring structure and planning to spontaneity.”

  • 52% Turbulent

“Turbulent individuals are self-conscious and sensitive to stress. They are likely to experience a wide range of emotions and to be success-driven, a perfectionist and eager to improve.”

I actually think this is pretty accurate. The introverted part hit the mark perfectly and I fit the intuitive description pretty well. I do think I’m more competitive than sensitive, but I do appreciate when a group of people can get along well and cooperate with one another without conflict. At first I was a bit offended when it said I was 56% judging but the description does sort of describe me. I like to know what’s going on in a situation and I like when there’s a plan laid out in front of me. I also rarely DNF books and I always have to finish a TV show if I’ve started it, so the closure part is right as well. Turbulent does describe me too because I try and strive for perfection even if it takes longer and stresses me out in the process.

What is my Zodiac Sign?

I’m a crab (Cancer). I don’t believe in astronomical signs and all of that stuff, but I’ll take a look to see what mine says. The Cancer element is water, and I guess I like water. I mean, I drink water all of the time. I’m not all that much of a fan of the ocean, though. Or at least not swimming in it. The zodiac sign color is white. Isn’t white not classified as a color? Oh well. White’s simplistic and is basically a blank canvas with a lot of potential. The days for Cancers are Monday and Tuesday. I don’t really like those days all that much, but they are the earlier days in the week which kind of goes with the entire white color. As in a fresh, blank canvas. As a Cancer, I am apparently most compatible with Capricorn and Taurus. Well my best friend is a Taurus, so that’s somewhat true.

My lucky numbers are 2, 3, 15, and 20. I don’t know if that’s actually true or not, but I do think that most good things come in threes (The Golden Trio, Team Free Will, etc.) So now let’s see what my strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes are…

  • Strengths: Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive.
  • Weaknesses: Moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, insecure.
  • Cancer likes: Art, home-based hobbies, relaxing near or in water, helping loved ones, a good meal with friends.
  • Cancer dislikes: Strangers, any criticism of Mom, revealing of personal life.

Okay so let’s break this down a bit (this is where it gets long). So it says that I’m tenacious, which is true when I really want something. And it also says I’m persuasive and when I was younger I used to always persuade my mom to get me something. It’s not like I was all that spoiled or anything (like I never asked for a lot of stuff or expensive stuff) but if my mom said no to me, I would somehow find a way to get her to say yes. I don’t know how manipulative is a weakness, I mean I seemed to use it a lot when I was a child. I don’t think I manipulate people though, I try and be honest with people and speak about things how they are. I do love how the word imaginative keeps popping up because that is so true! Not just because I read and enjoy writing, but also because when I was younger I would always play with Polly Pockets (because I hate actual dolls) and My Little Pet Shop and I would always play with them making them talk to each other, giving them names, relationships, jobs, just entire lives, really. I also used to love watching people on YouTube make videos of them playing with their My Little Pet Shop because it was like watching an episode of my favorite Disney TV show. Oh god I don’t know why this is unveiling so many memories from my childhood, or why I’m even typing this all down.

I’m loyal, which I think is true. Like when I know a character in a show or in a book is good, but then they take a turn for the worst and everybody thinks they’re the bad guy, I know that they really aren’t. I stick with that character until the very end.So apparently I’m moody, emotional, and sympathetic. This goes with the quiz that I took earlier because it said that I am 54% feeling. The thing is, I can get moody and emotional, as well as sympathetic, I just don’t show those emotions to people. I know people say it’s unhealthy to keep all of your emotions in, but I guess I have just done it my entire life and it’s normal to me by now. I have a difficult time expressing my emotions – not really because I’m shy or anything – I guess it’s just become a habit. Now I guess I’m suspicious when it comes to reading books or watching TV shows because I am usually able to tell if there’s something off about a certain character. Insecure, however, I don’t know. I don’t think my writing is all that good but everybody around me always praises my writing ‘talents’. I do think I’m a bit too hard on myself at times, but I wouldn’t really say I’m insecure.

This is starting to get a bit long. I hope y’all are sticking with me here. So it says that I enjoy art, which goes with the intuitiveness that was mentioned earlier, as well as the imaginative bit. It also says that Cancers like home-based hobbies which I think is pretty accurate. I like being home and doing activities with my sister such as baking or crafting of sorts. It brings up water again… I do like swimming and stuff but it’s become less fun over the years for me, I guess. It’s also been a while since I just hung out by a pool in nice weather and really enjoyed myself. I do love playing games in the pool, though, that’s always really fun, and I like getting tan (right now I’m so white it’s unbelievable). I also seem to like helping loved ones and a good meal with friends. Who doesn’t like helping others? Especially the people you love. I always try and help my family in any way I can, just to make their lives easier. I do enjoy going out to dinner with my family and friends, though I usually just listened on to everyone’s conversations.

Next, it says that I dislike strangers. This is true. Though I do like examining others, trying to deduce what their lives are like, what their job is, and their interests. Basically I unlock my inner Sherlock Holmes whenever I meet or see strangers, which can be off-putting because then I’m just awkwardly staring at them without saying anything. The next one should apply to all Zodiac signs. I mean, who would like people criticizing their mom? (I almost wrote mum there for a second) I usually don’t like revealing my personal life all that much, just because I’m not that open of a person but here I am, spilling out all of my guts. Okay, that sounded gross. Let’s move on to the next question…

What is my Hogwarts House? [LINK]

I’m a Ravenclaw, duh! But let me just take this quiz first because I haven’t taken it before (and apparently it’s different than all other sorting quizzes…) Okay this sorted me into Hufflepuff, but I feel that that’s only because I’m not a mean person (I mean Cancers are loyal…) and because I wouldn’t want to take a puzzle apart after I finish it and then try it blindfolded. Like, seriously? I’d get a new puzzle to do! It would have been a complete waste of my time to put together a puzzle just to take it back apart and do it again. I’m not saying I don’t have Hufflepuff characteristics, but I’m surely not a Hufflepuff just because I chose to do the right thing on the quiz. On the Pottermore sorting quiz I got Slytherin, but I think I was kind of moody the day I took it, and every other quiz I take sorts me into Ravenclaw so I call myself a Ravenclaw.

What are my learning styles? [LINK]

So according to this questionnaire, I have a multimodal learning preference. My score was 6 visual, 5 aural,  7 read/write, and 2 kinesthetic. So this means that I learn best using multiple different techniques, which is the same thing Kat got. I think this is true because in school I’d always like it when my teacher would have a PowerPoint presentation with images and graphs as well as words, and then she’d describe some of what the things meant. I then wrote things down in my journal for me to read later and it all just worked well together for me.

Am I right or left brain dominant? [LINK]

Well a while ago I took a quiz that told me I was more right brain dominant (which means I use the creative side of my brain most) but that was a few years ago, and things could change. It says that I use my brain equally (though really it says 41% for the left side and 59% for the right side, which isn’t equal). I read the explanations behind the questions and answers and some seem logical (like the dancer part) but then the part with the drawings doesn’t. I chose the circle because the other pictures had really sharp points and the last choice looks like a ballerina in mid-pose about to get stabbed with a javelin. But oh well, I’m fine with this result nonetheless.

What is my blood type?

Is it supposed to be common knowledge for people to know their blood types? Because I don’t know mine… it may be Type A, I’m not sure.

What career am I meant to have? [LINK]

So this is probably the most important of them all. On these types of quizzes I usually get my preferred profession (ie: writer) but I’m not sure… I didn’t get my usual Hogwarts house earlier so I’m a bit nervous it may give me something the total opposite of what I want like lawyer or something *crosses fingers*.

Okay, I just took the quiz and I’m so happy because I got Writer!

“You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories.”

That would have been a bit awkward if I hadn’t gotten writer. I feel like it’s because I chose books to spend my bonus money on (which I love how it was a choice, usually it’s not) and because I chose Maya Angelou as the person I’d like to work with the most because she’s a poet. I was just being reasonable because a) Gregory House is just a jerkwad, whether I’d want to be a doctor or not, I still wouldn’t want to work with him, b) I wouldn’t want to work with Obama because that would require me to be a politician and that’s not happening. Ever. and then Gordon Ramsey showed up and although he’s awesome (he’s my favorite chef) I would be way too intimidated by him in the kitchen and I feel like he’d end up getting annoyed at me because I tend to work slow. And I was debating whether to choose Stephen Hawking or not, but I ended up not choosing him because although it would be such an amazing honor to work with him, I just don’t have the brains for that.

Which Divergent Faction do I belong in? [LINK]

Well a few years ago (when I still liked Divergent) I took a quiz that told me I was Erudite, so let’s see what I get now. So I’m currently taking the quiz and reading isn’t even an option as something to do on the weekend. Instead, tweeting it there. I just wanted to point that out…

Okay so I finished the quiz and got Erudite! (Yet I just had a problem spelling the faction name *sighs*). I think it’s because I chose to bring a novel in my purse.

What does my birth order say about me? [LINK]

I only just recently figured out what a birth order was, and it’s literally just the order you were born in your family. So I’m the baby of the family. Let’s see what it says about me…

Stereotype: Free spirit, risk taker, charming.

I don’t think I’m any of those. By free spirit, does spending time in my room by myself for hours reading and watching TV by myself count? I’m not a risk taker at all, unless you count creating this blog and my BookTube channel (I was freaking terrified to be on camera, you have no idea). And I wouldn’t say I’m charming, as I am an awkward butterfly, but I do tend to make jokes that people laugh at, if that counts.

“Why it’s true: Parents are less cautious. (Hey, the older ones ate the dog’s food and lived!) And they also probably have more resources than they did when starting out. “Parents are more lenient, so youngest kids tend to be less rules-oriented, and yet they still get lots of attention,” says Salmon.”

I don’t think this really applies to me. Since I am the youngest my parents didn’t really take as many baby photos of me because they had done it previously with my two older sisters but that aside, I am a goody-two-shoes and always follow the rules. I literally start having an internal meltdown if I think I’ve done something wrong.

“When it’s not: “Some babies resent not being taken seriously,” says Linda Campbell, a professor of counseling and human development at the University of Georgia, in Athens. “They might become very responsible, like the oldest, or social, like the middle.””

I do find myself pretty responsible for my age. Like I was always more mature than everybody at school and all of my friends. I was always more quiet and I never understood the trends or why everybody was always on their phones 24/7 at lunch when they had their friends right next to them. I was always the one who sat there at the lunch table and ate while just staring at everybody else with their faces glued to their phones.


So that’s it! I don’t tag anybody in this (because it takes so long to do) but if you’d like to do this tag yourself, feel free to! Just make sure you let me know you’ve done it so I can check out your post. This was probably my longest post ever, I rambled so much, so hopefully you didn’t get bored, and you learned more about me. This would actually be a really cool tag for YouTubers to do. I could see that happening, if it hasn’t been done already.

The Valentine’s Day Tag!

Hello Valentines! You are all my Valentines, every single one of you. Yes, even you! I decided that I would do The Valentine’s Day Tag, which I found on BookTube. I don’t know who created this tag, but I first saw Little Book Owl‘s video for this and decided that I’d do it. Now, let’s get on with it!


Favorite Basic Romance Plot

Hmm… I’m not really a romance reader, but I do like it whenever there’s two shy characters who end up together because I just find it adorable, and they usually have the most cutest scenes.

Favorite Classic Romance

Hmm… I don’t read classics much at all, so this will be hard. I guess A Tree Grows in Brooklyn? I don’t know, this is really the only classic book I’ve read with any romance at all. I haven’t read any Jane Austen, who I know has swoon-worthy male love interests or whatever, but I haven’t read any of her books so I can’t say any of them.

Favorite Feel-Good Romance

Ergh this is so hard! I don’t read any romance novels! I guess I would have to go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I caught myself smiling so widely throughout this book. Eleanor and Park are just an adorable couple.

Favorite Sad Romance

See, a lot of people would probably go with The Fault in Our Stars on this one, but I’ve never read that, just seen the movie so I can’t pick that. Instead, I’ll go with Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. I saw the movie before I read the book and I bawled my eyes out in the theater. I never cry. EVER. But I found myself crying heavy sobs while watching the movie. I did the same with TFIOS, but it wasn’t as intense crying.

mebeforeyou

Favorite Genre to add Romance to

This one is difficult, you see, because most of the time I find the romance in books useless. I would say contemporary, but most contemporaries have romance as the big plot. I’ll go with Historical Fiction for this one because it’s nice to see what couples in the olden times would do on a date. Plus, the classic love letter sending and all of that is so adorable.

Least Favorite Romance OF ALL TIME

Wow this is hard. Can it be something I haven’t read but have just heard bad things about? If so, then I’d have to say Fifty Shades of Grey. I’ve heard that it’s an abusive and unhealthy relationship, plus I’ve heard the writing is atrocious. And the movie commercials keep on interrupting me on my YouTube binges.

Favorite Literary Couple in General

Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series, no doubt. We got to see their relationship bloom from friendship to couple throughout the series and I love that so much.

If you could have one literary significant other, who would it be?

Yikes, this will be another difficult one! I do, however, have a list of the 5 literary characters I would like as my Valentine here. I guess I’d have to choose Park from Eleanor & Park. He’s nerdy and smart and protective and I think we’d work well together since we have the same genre of interests.


Now, this section will be the non-book related section of the tag.

Do you have a special someone this V-Day?

No, but I do have my best friend Gina. She may be a poodle but she is the best friend I could ever ask for. Plus, she gives amazing hugs.

Favorite V-Day Candy?

Well I never really liked those sugar hearts with little phrases on them because they’re hard and taste of pure sugar and nothing else, but my favorite ‘candy’ would have to be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. And there are V-Day versions that are hearts, so it counts! And any chocolate, really.

Will you wear red, white, pink, or none of the above on V-Day?

Probably none of the above. I am wearing a pink shirt today, though. I’m not sure what I’m wearing tomorrow but I usually don’t dress up for Valentine’s Day.

Favorite Romance Movie

Well, again, I don’t watch romance movies all that often, but I would have to say Me Before You. It’s just so heartwarming and heartbreaking and cute and funny and ugh I loved it so much.

Favorite love song(s) – May have up to 4 (or more, I really don’t care, just don’t go crazy lol)

For this one I will have to go with any Ed Sheeran song or She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5. I always sang this song when I was younger, it was probably my favorite song growing up. If you asked anybody in my family what song I probably sang the most when growing up, they’d say this song. While I’m reminiscing on my childhood, I’d also like to mention Love Bug by The Jonas Brothers. I also love I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You by Elvis Presley.

Favorite thing about V-Day

Well Valentine’s Day for me has always been about getting candy and chocolate from my parents, so I would have to say that. Nobody needs a significant other when you have chocolate.

What are you doing this V-Day?

Uh… probably school. I never went out and did anything for Valentine’s Day. To be honest, I never thought Valentine’s Day was much of a big deal until this year. I won’t eat any chocolate or sweets because I don’t eat sugar during the week so I can’t say that I’ll be doing that.


So that was the Valentine’s Day Tag! I hope you enjoyed this and if you’d like to do this tag yourself, feel free to do so! What are you doing this Valentine’s Day? Let me know in the comments!

The Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

Hey everybody! Today I will be doing a book tag that I was tagged in by Lia over at Lost in a Story. I’ve very excited to do this tag because I’ve seen it done multiple times before, but this was the first time I was tagged. I’m all about zombies so this will surely be fun!


The Rules:


  • Choose 5 books!
  • Randomly set up your books in order.
  • Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
  • Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them!
  • Cry at how screwed you are…

The Books


I just chose the most easily-accessible books on my shelves, and threw in a contemporary to make it a bit interesting.

  • The Selection by Kiera Cass
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
  • The Maze Runner by James Dashner
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

The Questions


First person to die: 

Celeste from The Selection. I can actually see this happening, since she doesn’t know how to fight in a physical brawl. Plus, I doubt she’d give up her heels. She ain’t getting away from zombies in those.

The person you trip to escape the zombies:

America Singer from The Selection. I actually saw Celeste’s name again on this one, but since I can’t use a character twice, I chose America, since I saw her name next. Considering how much America annoyed me throughout this series, I actually wouldn’t mind doing this all that much.

The person that trips you to get away from the zombies:

Eleanor from Eleanor & Park. Okay, I could not see Eleanor doing this. If anything, she’d help me run away from the zombies if I was injured.

The team idiot:

Cal from Eleanor & Park. Well I didn’t like Cal all that much, and he didn’t exactly seem like the brightest tool in the shed, so I guess this works. Though, I don’t know how he made it on the team with Eleanor and not Park…

The brains of the group:

Arya Stark from A Game of Thrones. I like this one, it sort of fits. Though she’s more of a fighter than a thinker, she is a good strategists. I’d trust Arya to be the brains of the group.

The team medic:

Catelyn Stark from A Game of Thrones. Well she is a mother, and mothers always seem to be able to take care of people the best. And to have her and Arya in the same group together – mother and daughter – would be nice, even if Arya isn’t her mother’s favorite.

The weapons expert:

Thomas from The Maze Runner. He’s not exactly an expert with weapons. If it was running away from things, then maybe it’d be more suited for him. There could be a worse choice, though.

The team brawler:

Newt from The Maze Runner. Okay, I think this works better than the last one. Again, he’d probably be better if it was running away from something, but I bet Newt could hold his own in a fight.

The first to turn into a zombie:

Hagrid from Harry Potter. No! Not Hagrid! Oh god… how did my team survive Hagrid, a half giant, turning into a zombie? Newt must’ve used his brawling skills to save us all or something. But also, Hagrid is probably slow when running, so we could’ve just been running away from the zombies – Thomas and Newt in the front – and then Hagrid could’ve just gotten bitten by the zombies and we couldn’t save him in time. But still… Hagrid, seriously? I wish it could’ve been the next person on this list…

The team leader:

Dudley Dursley from Harry Potter. What? How the heck did Dudley become the leader of my group? If anything, he’d be the first to die! Celeste would last longer than him! I don’t care about anybody else, our group is doomed! (Unless, of course, Arya chooses him as the next person on her to-kill list).

So we started off pretty good with Celeste dying and me tripping America in order to save myself, and then Eleanor takes a turn for the worst and trips me… and then Cal becomes the team idiot, which does make some sense. Arya and Catelyn are basically the only two people keeping the group alive and in one piece, and Thomas and Newt keep everybody – except Hagrid, who they abandoned – safe from the zombies. And finally, the worst of the worst, my team leader is none other than Dudley Dursley. That’s quite the team! The only question I have is what role I play in this team? Does everybody have a role but me?


I don’t tag anybody to do this, but if you’d like to take part in the zombie action, please do! What do you think of my zombie apocalypse team? Will we survive? Who do you think will last the longest in my team of misfits? Let me know in the comments!

The Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hello peoples! I’m back with a tag that I was tagged in about two weeks ago by Bookfandom1001. Let’s just jump right on in!


greed

GREED: What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

Any book that I’ve won in a Giveaway would be the most inexpensive book, but This is Where it Ends was my first ever book that I’ve won in a Giveaway, so it’ll be the answer for the most inexpensive book. The Walking Dead Compendium One however…. that was around $60. I’m not even remotely joking, guys! I was out on a B&N shopping spree with my Dad and he basically just followed me around the store as I picked out the books I wanted to buy. He pointed out The Walking Dead Compendium One and offered to buy it for me, since we both love the show and I’ve been wanting to read the graphic novels, I picked it up and we headed to the check-out. I didn’t know how expensive this book was until looking at the receipt when I made it home. Let’s just say that I ordered from Amazon when I bought the second compendium (it was like 40% off listing price!)

greed-2

WRATH: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
cassandra-clare-quotes-1

I think that a lot of people have the same relationship with Cassandra Clare, the author of The Mortal Instruments series. Clare has been sued for plagiarism and ultimately, her books sometimes have a lot of similarities to Fan-Fiction. That’s not necessarily a bad thing (the Fan-Fiction thing), since everybody starts somewhere, but I don’t know, sometimes I love her world that she’s created as well as her writing, while other times I just roll my eyes with annoyance.

greed-5

GLUTTONY: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
theoutsiders

I’m not one of those people who re-read books (I’ve only re-read two books ever, and those are the first two Harry Potter books), but I can see The Outsiders as one of those books that I find myself re-reading on a boring day inside or on a long flight somewhere. It’s small and short and can easily be taken with me anywhere I go, plus the characters and story are so raw and amazing that I don’t think I could ever get tired of re-visiting them.

greed-4

SLOTH: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

I have good reasoning behind this one. These books are both SO. LONG. Seriously, though! It’s not like I don’t think they’ll be good, but they’re both behemoths. Just thinking of trying to tackle these novels makes me want to curl up in a ball and contemplate what my life might become if I get stuck within the pages of those books, forever lost in the endless pages. I may be over-reacting, but I’ll get to them when the right time comes. And when that time arrives, I have no doubt in my mind that I’ll love these books.

greed-6

PRIDE: What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

tokillamockingbird

Well I’m not one of those people that talks about a certain book in order to sound like an intellectual reader, but it always seems to impress people whenever I tell people that I’ve read To Kill a Mockingbird and enjoyed it. They usually assume that it was required reading for school, but I answer truthfully by saying that I chose to read it out of my own free will, which impresses them. I guess it’s because usually teenagers nowadays only read classic American literature if it’s for a school assignment, yet I do it for fun.

greed-1

LUST: What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?

I’m nerdy so I find it attractive whenever a character makes a lot of references to nerd culture that only a true nerd would understand and appreciate. I also like a character who is intellectual without trying to be smarter than anybody else.

greed-3

ENVY: What book would you like to receive as a gift?

harrypotter_philosphers_stone

Well I already received one book that was on my list for Christmas (I won’t tell until I post my Christmas haul), so I’ll go with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Illustrated Edition. Note how I wrote Philosopher’s and not Sorcerer’s.


I don’t tag anybody in particular. Yes, I know, I’m boring. If you decide that you’d like to do this tag, just leave a link in the comments to your post so I can check it out!

The Jingle Bell Tag

Happy Eve of Christmas Eve! Is that a thing? If not, it certainly is now. Today is the day of last minute shopping and hastily wrapping gifts for the people you had no idea what to get things for. Today is the calm before the storm. Yes, calm, unless you’ve been out in the real world (AKA: Hell at this time of year). To celebrate this, I’ve decided to do another Christmas-y tag! I wasn’t specifically tagged to do this, but it was an open invitation so I decided ‘why not?’. Since this will probably be my last post on this blog before Christmas. Unless I finish my Aristotle and Dante review sometime today or find some free time tomorrow or Christmas day. You never know!

So I saw Kat over at Life and Other Disasters do this tag and decided to do it myself. Let’s jump right into it!


“All I Want For Christmas Is You…”

What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?

Er… any book would be nice. I never get books as gifts which is very strange because that’s the one of the things you could get me and I’m guaranteed to like it, unless it’s a book I already own. I’ll just put a few books I would go absolutely crazy over if I unwrapped it on Christmas morning.I’m limiting myself to only four books because this could get very long.

“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…”

What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

theamazingbookisnotonfire

I’m not saying that this is my favorite book I read this year (since it’s full of pictures and is just a fun read) but I enjoyed it probably the most because it was just so fun to read and made me laugh so hard so many times. Dan and Phil really put their personalities into this book, just like they do with their videos.


“It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…”

Which book has the most festive look to it?

mebeforeyou

With this one I chose a book that isn’t a holiday book because then that would be kind of unfair. Christmas does happen in this book, but only briefly and it’s not part of the main story-line. I own the movie tie-in cover (I know! Shame!) so that one isn’t very Christmas-y, but the shade of red and the white font makes this version have a Christmas-y feel to it.


Elf

What book unleashes your inner child?

thenightcircus

This book was a runner-up for the last question, but I decided to put it here. This book made me want to join Bailey as we explore the wondrous Night Circus. I loved this book so much because it made me feel like a kid again (I’m technically still a kid, but I mean like age 5 or 6).

The Grinch

Your favorite villain…

delphi

I absolutely hate Delphini Riddle (is that her proper surname?) from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and I hate The Grinch as well so it fits. It’s not love to hate, it’s hate as in ‘I wish this character never existed’. The Grinch gave me nightmares, I’m not even joking and I seriously don’t understand why it’s a classic.And Delphini shouldn’t even exist considering ((SPOILER)) Voldemort was conceived under the influence of a love potion, meaning he doesn’t have the ability to love. And the idea of Voldemort having a child is something that is borne only in Fan-Fictions.

The Holiday

Name your favorite TWO couples…

ONLY two? Wow, this is brutal. Uh… I’m just going to pick two couples that are actually canon from books. Here they are:

Ron and Hermione and Alec and Magnus are definitely my book OTPs. They’re both just so perfect for one another.


What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

Ergh! I have to choose only one? Gosh this is difficult. I’ll have to go with a favorite of mine, and that would have to be An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.

I don’t tag anybody specific, but if you’d like to do this tag, feel free to do it. Leave a link to your post so that I’ll be able to check it out, or just ping-back to me and I’ll see that you did it. I hope that all of you are enjoying the holiday season! Happy Holidays!

lots-of-love
