Take Me To Neverland Book Tag

Untitled

Hey Bookworms! I’m just gonna get right to it since I’m so excited to share this with you. Since I joined the book blog community all these wonderful Book Tags are just so addicting and fun and well I wanted to create one as well. I have so many ideas for some and the first one I wanted to do was something I really loved with some magic into it and there’s nothing more magical then Peter Pan. My all time favorite story growing up. I did look some Peter Pan Book Tags and found one on Alessia’s Shit List  BookTube Channel.

I did my own twist to it and created the Take Me To Neverland Book Tag and added some Fairy Dust to it to make it magical. I don’t know if there is a Neverland Book Tag and if there is one please let me know. Thank You.

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…

Book Blog Newbie Tag

Untitled

 

I guess this should of been my very first Book Tag. But that’s okay better late then never. Before I jump into these lovely questions I found this Book Tag on Much Ado About Literature

Lets Begin..

WHY DID YOU START THIS BLOG?

To keep tract of all my book reviews in one place where I can call home. Seriously, to make new friends that have the same interest as me. Where I’m from people are shock when they learn that I read books and I will never understand why they think I’m not a bookworm. My best friend and boyfriend and everyone else around me do not read so therefore I have no one to discuss books with. I have a home here on my blog where I can express exactly how I feel towards the things I love, which is books and share the same passion with other bookworms.

WHAT ARE SOME FUN AND UNIQUE THINGS YOU CAN BRING TO BOOK BLOGGING?

Honesty, Personality, Just being me. But I’m sure you heard these one to many times. But there is no one out there like me and there’s no one out there like you. One fun thing I would like to do is create my own Book Tags, maybe? I don’t know yet, If I have the time I just might do it because I do have something in mind 😉

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR ABOUT THIS NEW BLOG?

MEETING WONDERFUL BOOKWORMS AROUND THE WORLD! Considering I might be the only Bookworm living in Las Vegas that doesn’t drink or hang out at the strip and rather stay home and drink some hot tea and read a book. Golly! How old am I?

WHY DO YOU LOVE READING?

To get away from my life! I’m just kidding my life is amazing. We live in a world with no magic and no mystical creatures, no dark twisted crimes or truths (For some of us anyways) I enjoy reading for the fantasy vibes, you know what I’m saying?! Yes to escape this boring mortal world to enter a world that might not really exist but for those hours I’m reading they exist and that means for me for that moment I’m in a whole new world with new characters and new adventures that I get to experience.

WHAT BOOK OR SERIES GOT YOU INTO READING? 

I’m glad you asked. Warriors by Erin Hunter. I will always and forever be proud to have read these lovely,amazing books growing up. When I was younger I was obsessed reading different Encyclopedia books and my two favorite books was the Google Encyclopedia and the Cat Encyclopedia.

e864140be0e4ea2bd1139bbbd820bb5e-w204@1xs-l300

Holy Cow! Total book geek. Since I loved cats and one time in my life I wanted to be some animal behavior expert that sits around under a tree taking notes and pictures of Tigers, Lions, and Leopards. While I was in that little zone as a kid I found the Warriors series at Barnes And Noble and because there was a cat on the cover I had to have it and YES! My reading has developed into more stories then facts but that’s the beauty of reading, at least for me.

WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU ASK YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS? 

I get star struck. I freeze up and my smile is so wide but nothing is coming out of my mouth. I will NEVER get the chance to ask any questions in person, I will be standing there with the book in my hand hoping they will do the talking for me. Jeeze, how embarrassing right! I’m sure I’m not the only one. AKWARD!

WHAT CHALLENGES DO YOU THINK STARTING A BLOG WILL BE THE HARDEST TO OVERCOME?

I don’t know any challenges that I can think of. I have all the time to be blogging so time wont be a challenge. I’m on here to meet new bookworms like myself so engaging with others or keeping up with post wont be a challenge. The only thing I can think of that is kind of a  minor challenge would have to be my spelling and grammar on here. I mean this is a book blog and I read a lot but I’m still not the best in the world when it comes to spelling. I get really excited to post a new blog so I type fast so I can make sure I get everything on my mind down without forgetting anything and I just might skip a word or a letter somewhere and if I do just give me that shout!

WHEN DID YOU START READING? 

I really don’t know. But what I do know it was at a very young age that I can read for myself. Something I would have to ask my Ma she knows the exact age!

WHERE DO YOU READ?

Under a cactus…

Seriously…

I have only three spots I read and a cactus is not one of them.  If I have the time in the morning to read its on my couch with my legs kicked up (Movie theater style couches) which is in my living room.

IMG_1443

Yes I took this picture when I was writing this post.

Who is that on the couch?

That’s Pops! He’s my crazy pooch who naps thru out the day.

Now my second and most favorite spot to read would be my BED! I’m pretty sure 99% of us bookworms do most of our readings on are cozy beds.

IMG_1445

Did I make the bed before I took this picture? You bet your buns I did!

Last but not least would be my porch. So how it works considering I live in a desert and it gets to be over 100 degrees here in the summer you will NOT see me outside reading a book. Once fall is here like pretty much now I start to sit outside my porch once the sun sets and cools down at night to read for a couple hours out there. Sorry no picture since I am working on my porch to get it ready for full reading this season.

WHAT KIND OF BOOKS DO YOU LIKE TO READ?

I love all books. But at the end of the day it will always be YA. Fantasy, action, and of course a complicated love story with some danger thrown into the story. I need some mystical creature sometimes too and don’t forget a crazy villain too, we always need one of those!

Well folks that is all from this Book Tag today. If you had finished this then you know a little more about me,  I love to hear what you think so drop some comments down below! TTFN.

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black

the-cruel-prince-cover-669x1024

Title: The Cruel Prince

Author: Holly Black

Publisher: Little Brown

Pages: 370

                                                 Rating: th6UTD2VT7th6UTD2VT7th6UTD2VT7th6UTD2VT7th6UTD2VT7

Well I’m ruined for the rest of the day. Just finished this amazing gem and I’m completely hungover from it. I really don’t know what to do with myself and I need more of this story.

This was my first Holly Black story I read from her and it is truly a wonderful, dark, magical story. UGHHH I seriously can not wait for the second book The Wicked King! I could not put this book down. I kept going and the ending was a shock for me.

Are main character Jude who is mortal living in the Fey world among with her twin sister Taryn deal with a lot of bullying from others that are not mortal. Jude wants to be nothing but a respected knight in the monarch court. Her dark journey finding the truth about the ones she loves and the ones that are among her are truly fascinating and makes you want more.

Holly Black did a wonderful job writing this story out where you can literally visualize everything in your head like a movie. I’m always focused when I’m reading but there are a lot of characters in this book where you do need to focus because I did have to flip back pages to be like “Wait! Who?”

Mystical creatures, betrayal, a dark world where mortals are looked down at. A royal family fighting for the crown and one big secret…Yes this book brought all of this. Epic journey of finding the truth and the main character Jude finding out who she truly is when she was that person from the beginning.

Also I would like to say that Jude’s birthday is the same day as mine 🙂

Are you in for this epic read because I was stuck in the book the moment I started the first page and wanted to know more of Jude and her life with others that bully her and how she copes in this world with faeries.

This book was on my TBR list for a long time and I wish I read this a lot sooner then I did. I’m thrilled I finally got the opportunity to read this and is now one of my top favorite reads of 2018.

Ready to leave the mortal world and enter the epic world of Fey?
