G’day everyone! Apparently I’m Aussie now *shrugs* Today I have a tag to do! This tag is a really interesting one so I decided that I’d do it. I was tagged by Chris from Read By Chris, so let’s just get started cause this is a longer one! Read More
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! Read More
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. Read More
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). Read More
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.
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!
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!
- 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…
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
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!
