20 Questions Book Tag

Untitled

Howdy Bookworms! Here is yet another Book Tag for you. Thank you Flowers In the Brain for tagging me in this lovely Book Tag. Once said and will say it again, Bookworms scouts honor to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. Here we go!

  1. HOW MANY BOOKS IS TOO MANY BOOKS IN A BOOK SERIES?

It would depend on the author for me. If the story is one big adventure and so many characters to get to know and character growth and the writing is well put together in detail then the sky is the limit for me.

2.  HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?

Cliffhangers can be good. Sometimes. Hmm.

 

3. HARD COPY OR PAPERBACK?

I’m all in for the hardcovers and here is why. I love how they look on my bookshelf’s and I feel all sorts of good/comfy vibes holding a hardcover book unless I’m reading more then two hours then my wrists start to get sore.

4. FAVORITE BOOK?

  I have a lot of faves, but so far for 2018 will have to be Heartless! WAIT! Ace Of Shades! NO WAIT! The Cruel Prince! Yes that’s the one.

5. LEAST FAVORITE BOOK?

For 2018 and maybe for all books so far, which takes a lot for me to not like a book would have to be Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi. I was expecting so much more I guess.

6. LOVE TRIANGLES? YES OR NO?

I’m gonna go right in the middle and say sometimes. If the author can pull it off nicely and make some juicy, dangerous, creative, and twisted love triangle then I’m all in.

7. THE MOST RECENT BOOK YOU JUST COULDN’T FINISHED?

None so far and I hope to keep it that way. No fun when you have to put a book down.

8. BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Doing more tags and reading them on other post I noticed this is the main question on all Book Tags. I mean of course it’s going to be asked but when doing tags we should just automatically put are current read in are post before we begin the questions, kinda like when you go to a meeting and you introduce your self! “Hi my name is and I’m here for….” It could be a introduction for us Bookworms..Something like this “My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha” Hmm Yes? No? Maybe? I don’t know just thinking out loud.

9. LAST BOOK YOU RECOMMENDED TO SOMEONE?

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black to a new friend I made at the Barnes And Noble Book Club last month.

10. OLDEST BOOK YOU READ? 

Hmmm does a Dictionary count? If not Anything Can Happen By George Papashvily published in the 40’s.

11. NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ?

My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha any how it’s not a completed read yet but it will be 🙂

12. FAVORITE AUTHOR?

Right now Marissa Meyer!

 

13. BUYING BOOKS?

All day everyday baby!

14. A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LOVE?

Nope, unless Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi but I think most others would agree!?

15. BOOKMARKS OR DOG EARRINGS?

Bookmarks all the way!

16. A BOOK YOU CAN REREAD? 

Warriors By Erin Hunter. The whole series and every book I want to reread them!

17. CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC?

Only if its Lofi! But I prefer absolute silence.

 

18. ONE POV OR MULTIPLE POVS?

Multiple POVs! Gives me the opportunity to know each character and have more of a understanding on a situation and how they feel about an event or the other character in the story.

19. DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SETTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?

Multiple days. I tend to take my time when it comes to reading, unless the book is just so darn incredible but even so I have a busy schedule thru out the day that I don’t have enough time in the day to complete one whole book in a day.

20. ONE BOOK YOU READ BECAUSE OF THE COVER?

The book that started it all for me, the book that pushed me to read more and more…

THE QUESTIONS  

  1. IF YOU COULD BECOME ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PICK?

4. WHO / WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START BLOGGING? 

What inspired me to start my book blog was to meet other bookworms out there in this big old world. My best friends, my boyfriend, and even my family are not readers. I have no one to discuss and fan girl over books. Books are my life and I want to share that passion with others who share the same. I mean I do have a lot to say when it comes to books and I need to let it all out one way or another and I guess that’s blogging.

5. HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU OWN THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET?

One moment please…49! All of them are on my TBR list 🙂

6. WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT SELF- CARE DAY / NIGHT / WEEKEND LOOK LIKE?

I do have a lot of self-care days. During the day it’s sipping on some hot tea and taking Pop’s for his daily walk. Sewing, and lots of it. The rest of the day it’s more hot tea and reading! Little time spending with my boyfriend. Been with him for 10 years so I like to hang out in the bedroom where I have all my books while he is in the living room playing his games (The more the years go on we do are own thing but in the same house hold) HA! I don’t know why that puts a smile on my face but it did because playing online games like COD (Call Of DUTY) was always in my daily plan. NOT ANY MORE. But the perfect self care for me is just being me and doing what I love everyday and truth is that took me awhile to do. Make yourself happy and focus on your true hobbies that you are thrilled to do because if you don’t your mind will go nuts one way or another?! I hope I answered this correctly.

7. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK COVER EVER?

This bad boy right here! Willa Of The Wood By Robert Beatty. This cover just speaks nature to me. The green and blue just UGH so stunning.

8. ARE THERE WORDS / TERMS THAT IMMEDIATELY TURN YOU OFF A BOOK? WHICH ONES? WHY?

Hmm very good question. No there is not. At least not right now.

9. IS THERE A GENRE YOU RARELY READ BUT DO LOVE READING?

Autobiography books. I do enjoy reading stories from others and what they experience. I remember when I read Marilyn Manson’s autobiography in freshmen year in high school…one and only one thing came to mind..TMI…and wow rock and roll man! Two things I guess.

10. MUNCHES! WHAT NATIONAL / LOCAL DISH ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

CALAMARI! Yes I love Calamari, I always look forward to a plate of this deliciousness.

11. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOKISH ITEM?

Bookish candles. So so many creative ones and they smell fantastic which is a plus. I like to put the bookish candles on my shelf by the book that the candle belongs to. Anyone else do that?

Netflix Book Tag

eee.jpg

This is my first ever Book Tag. I must say that book tags look very fun and a great way for everyone to get to know who’s behind the blog. I will be participating in Book Tags and look forward to all these fun questions! I found this Book Tag on Thriceread.com

So here it goes, my first Book Tag, if I haven’t said it already.

RECENTLY WATCH – THE LAST BOOK YOU FINISHED READING

Just finished The Cruel Prince by Holly Black today. It was on my TBR list for a very long time this year and finally got to it this month, I should of read it a lot sooner. So much darkness and magic all at once.

TOP PICKS – A BOOK RECOMMENDED TO YOU BASED OFF ANOTHER BOOK YOU READ

When I was reading the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire my friend told me about the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I have yet to read the series, but I do own the first book.

RECENTLY ADDED – THE BOOK YOU MOST RECENTLY BOUGHT

I don’t know if this counts but my boyfriend just bought me Leah On The Off Beat By Becky Albertalli.

POPULAR ON NETFLIX – ONE BOOK YOU’VE READ AND ONE BOOK YOU HAVEN’T READ THAT EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT 

I read Children Of Blood And Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Just sitting here waiting for book two to come out!

I have not read Caraval by Stephanie Garber. The book is on my TBR list and has been for awhile now along with the second book Legendary. I hear good things about it but we are all different when it comes to reading and what we like at the end of the day. But for real I really need to get on that hmmm possible next read?

COMEDIES – NAME A FUNNY BOOK

One book that comes to mind that I recently read not to long ago would be Clock Dance by Anne Tyler. One of the characters that is a nine year old name Cheryl and her dog name Airplane just made me laugh thru out the book. She was a character, but usually all kids are.

DRAMAS – NAME A CHARACTER WHO IS A DRAMA KING/QUEEN

Hmmm at the moment I can’t think of any. I’m stumped.

CARTOONS – NAME A BOOK WITH CARTOONS ON THE COVER

The only thing I have that have cartoons on the covers are my Fables comics. I guess you can decide if that counts.

WATCH AGAIN – A BOOK OR SERIES YOU REALLY WANT TO REREAD

The series that I want to reread which is what got me to really get into reading are the Warriors by Erin Hunter. Gosh what a wonderful series to read when I was growing up. I seriously could not put these books down.

DOCUMENTARIES – A NON- FICTION YOU’D RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

Every day I’m Hustling by Vivica A. Fox. I had the privileged to meet her this year and got my book signed by her. Very inspiring and very little gossip 😉

ACTION/ADVENTURE – NAME AN ACTION PACKED BOOK OR SERIES

Six Of Crows and the second book Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. A lot of action and a lot of kick ass characters.

NEW RELEASES – A NEW RELEASE YOU ARE EXCITED ABOUT

Considering I finished The Cruel Prince today I’m really looking forward to The Wicked King by Holly Black next year to be released, January can not get here any faster!

Let me know what you guys think. I would tag some book bloggers but since I’m new everyone is tagged. TTFN.
