The Ultimate Book Tag

Hey Nerdy Peeps! I haven’t done a good book tag in a while, so let’s get on with the ultimate book tag!

This tag was done by Megan on Goodreads but I found it over on This Splendid Shambles.


Let’s get on with the questions…

1) Do you get sick while reading in the car?

  • Yes, unfortunately, I do and it sucks! I can’t even read on a plane and I hate it. That’s why I’m thankful for audiobooks.

2) Which Author’s writing style is completely unique to you & why?

  • This one was hard, but I decided to go with Alice La Roux! Her writing style is completely captivating and makes you feel like you are part of every story. I just love her work so much! I even have a review for her coming soon!

3) Harry Potter or Twilight Saga? (3 Points to defend your answer)

  • Um well, the only one I have read is the Twilight Saga, so I can’t account for Harry Potter. Twilight was my escape from a long day at school and I loved every word. It kept me up way past my bedtime, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

4) Do you carry a book bag? If so what is in it? (Besides books)

Well, since I carry my books in my purse, let’s start there.

  • My phone
  • Pencil
  • Wallet
  • Kindle
  • Chapstick
  • Keys

5) Do you smell your books?

  • Yes! What book nerd doesn’t? I love the smell of new books, used books, and antique books!

6) Books with or without illustrations?

  • Depends on the book. If it’s a children’s book, then yes it needs illustrations. Middle-grade books can always use very minimal illustrations. I don’t think YA books New Adult books, or adult books need illustrations.

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

  •  I gotta say it’s probably the Twilight Saga. It was great when I was younger, but now it’s just childish, and fun to pick up when I’m bored.

8) Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please Share

  • Nope, well not that I can remember anyway. Now, when it came to middle-age books, I used to pretend that I was part of the adventure.

9) What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

  • The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

10) Thickest book on your shelf?

  • Royally Crushed by Niki Burnham

the ultimate book tag

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

  • Yes, I do. In fact, I have a few pieces coming out for some anthologies and my book from NaNoWriMo will be coming out soon!

12) When did you get into reading?

  • I want to say middle school. Thanks to the school library I was always reading.

13) What is your favorite classic book?

  • Definitely, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This is my all time favorite and I am always rereading it.

14) In school was you best subject Language Arts/English?

  • Actually, it was. I loved every bit of English and I even took it as a major in college. My other favorite class was creative writing, I loved getting to write whatever I wanted.

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

  • I’ll accept it and let it sit on my shelf for a little while. Then I’ll donate it.

the ultimate book tag

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

  • Well, I haven’t really read anything similar to either of the series. I gave up on younger reads like this when they stopped appealing to me.

17) What is a bad habit you always do when blogging?

  • I get distracted by other things, and I forget what I’m typing, so I tend to change my topic quite a few times. Hence why this post came up.

18) What is your favorite word?

  • Positivity! I love this word because it is the best word for everything.

19) Are you a nerd or a geek?

  • After reading This Splendid Shambles post and reading the link she added I concluded that I am indeed a nerd!

20) Vampires or Fairies? Why?

  • Fairies. Vampires just aren’t my thing and I think fairies are a lot more mystical.

the ultimate book tag

21) Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

  • Shapeshifters. Um, hello they are just awesome!

22) Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

  • Definitely Spirits! I love anything to do with spirits and the paranormal.

23) Zombies or Vampires? Why?

  • Neither. I’m not a fan of either of them. Vampires bore me and Zombies are gross.

24) Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

  • Forbidden Love, it’s my favorite. I can’t stand the love triangle trope.

25) Full on romance or action-packed with love scenes mixed in?

  • Thanks to the lovely T.M. Frazier, I need action-packed with love scenes mixed in!

I Dare You Book Tag

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! I needed a book post idea for today so, I did what I do best and I Googled! Through my google adventure, I came across a blog with a tag that looked like a lot of fun so I decided to give it a go! So, thanks to chellesbookramblings, for the tag!

I Dare You Book Tag

I hope you’re ready to hang out for a bit because we got 20 questions to answer!

1. Which book has been on your shelf the longest?


To Kill a Mockingbird! This book is my all time favorite and I will probably read it again for the 4th time one day. Now, on my Goodreads list, the book that has been on there the longest is, The Ghost and the Goth by  Stacey Kade.

 

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?

  •  Current read is, Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
  •  My Last read was Gingerbread at Moonglow by Deborah Garner
  •  Next read will probably be, What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen, 99 Days by  Katie Cotugno, or The List by Siobhan Vivian. ( I really can’t decide)

I Dare You Book Tag

3. What book(s) did everyone like but you hated?

I have two choices to this question. Now, don’t hate me these are just books I couldn’t get into. Those books would be Harry Potter and the Mortal Instruments series. I just can’t with these two series.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but probably won’t?

This would probably be the Red Queen series. They have been on my Too Read list for quite a while and I have yet to read them. I read the first one and I liked it, but I don’t see myself getting to the rest anytime soon.

5. Which books are you saving for retirement?

Um… None of them! That is the most ridiculous question I have ever heard of!

6. Last Page: Read it first, or wait until the end?

Wait until the end! I have no intentions of ruining the story!

7. Acknowledgments: wast of paper and ink, or interesting aside?

I don’t even bother with it. I usually just skip it. Now, if it’s a favorite author then I’ll probably skim through it.

8. Which book character would you switch places with?

McKinley Mills from Southern Pleasure by Kaylee Ryan. At first, she’s confused and doesn’t want to realize that she is in love with Evan and that Evan is in love with her, but towards the end, she finally gives in. Evan, McKinley, and his little girl make such a beautiful family.

I Dare You Book Tag

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, place, a time)?

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I chose this one because it reminds me of my friendships in high school. I had a few very close friends in high school and no we didn’t share a pair of pants but we did share a lot of laughs and good memories.

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

I think other than giveaways, I haven’t acquired books in an interesting way. Just the normal way.

11. Have you ever given away a book for a special reason to a special person?

I love giving books to my niece and nephews. Their faces light up and it makes my heart warm to see how happy they are.

12. Which book has been with you the most places?

To Kill a Mockingbird! This one has been with me everywhere!

I Dare You Book Tag

13. Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

Great Expectations! I hated this book in high school and I actually used Spark Notes for most of my tests and quizzes. Fast forward to a few years after high school and I now love the book!

14. What’s the strangest item you’ve found in a book?

Notes, I have found quite a few notes inside books and some of them were a little weird.

15. Used or Brand New? 

Both! A book is a book.

16. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Nope, and I probably never will. Just not my cup of tea.

17. Have you ever seen a movie you like better than the book? 

Nope, I have always liked the book better. Movies always mess things up.

18. Is there a book you think never should have been published?

Nope, every book is published for a reason. A book might not be my cup of tea, but it might be someone else’s.

19. Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks excluded? 

Once again, that would be Gingerbread at Moonglow! Oh, my goodness, cookies!

20. Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?

This one has me stumped. Mine is more of a what, instead of a who. I use YouTube, Pinterest, and Goodreads, for most of my book advice.

I Dare You Book Tag

This was actually a lot of fun and it took quite a bit of thought, but my brain needed the exercise. Now, this is an open tag so, have at it and have fun!

 

The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! I am bringing you another book tag! I have seen a few posts and YouTube videos on the unpopular opinion book tag and cannot wait to share my answers with you. Please remember these are just my opinions and we might not share the same ones!

A Popular book/series you didn’t like

Don’t hate me, but this one was pretty easy for because mine happens to be Harry Potter. I could not get into this series no matter how hard I tried. This series (including the movies) just didn’t happen for me. The characters weren’t my kind of characters and I just didn’t like the storylines.

A book series everyone hates but you love

I don’t know if people hate this series, but I never really hear anything about it. On the other hand, this series happens to be one of my faves. The Trylle series is one of my all time favorites and I have read it multiple times.  The books are beautiful and the storyline just sucks you in.

A love triangle where the main character ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with

This one would be Katniss and Peeta. I don’t know why, but I just wanted them to be friends. I can see why they ended up together but doesn’t mean I have to like it. If I had to choose, I would have loved to see Katniss with Gale, and Peeta as the uncle!

unpopular opinion book tag

A popular book genre you rarely reach for

Thriller/Suspense, this is not my favorite and I hardly ever pick it up. Now, if you add in some good romance I may be interested. But if it’s just suspenseful then I probably will turn away.

A popular beloved character you can’t seem to get into

America Singer in The Selection. I couldn’t stand her (or the series). Like really, who doesn’t want to have a crown and be a Princess. I mean yeah I know she was in love with someone else, but still.

unpopular opinion book tag

A Popular Author you can’t seem to get into

Once again, don’t hate me, but I cannot get into Cassandra Clare. I read the first book in the Mortal Instrument Series, and although it took some time I did enjoy it. Now, for the second book, it took me forever to finish it and it made me realize I am just not a fan of Clare’s books.

A Popular trope you are tired of seeing

The guy always saving the girl. Why does the guy always have to be the hero? I mean a woman can easily be as heroic as a man. So, bring me some books with female heroes!

A popular series you have no interest in reading

The Vampire Academy. This one is a big nope for me. I just can’t do it, there are too many books out there about Vampires and I they are pretty much worn out. I’ve read my fill so these won’t be on my TBR list.

I am tagging whoever wants to do this tag! I had a lot of fun and I hope you do too!
