So I found this tag online somewhere and thought it would be nice to do on my blog. So that's what I am doing. Obviously. Anywho! It may possibly be pretty boring for you to read my answers to these, but I like reading other people's so I'm going to do it anyway :)
1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
I haven't tried, but considering I get sick in the car even when I'm not driving I don't think I'd like to risk it.
2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
I think Sarah Crossan's would be simply because that book was written in verse which was interesting to say the least! I really enjoyed it though and I'm looking forward to reading more books in verse now!
3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
1. I haven't read Harry Potter
2. I have no interest in Harry Potter
3. I haven't read Harry Potter
I can hear all the Harry Potter fans screaming at me right now.
4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is it in (besides books…)?
Lol no. I don't really take physical books with me everywhere I go, unless I'm actually planning on going somewhere specifically to read, in which case I just carry it...
5. Do you smell your books?
No? I've never really understood smelling books to be honest. And second hand book shops always smell so stuffy, I just can't. Although I do breathe when I read, so I do occasionally catch a waft of my book, in which case I don't think it's terrible but I wouldn't want my whole room to smell like that cha feel?
6. Books with or without little illustrations?
If I'm reading a fiction book and there are illustrations I usually just skip over them. Except of course, if it's a picture book because I love those! But I'm not too fussed about illustrations.
7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing? (Ex. I read Twilight before I read HP and thought the writing was amazing but read HP and now think Twilight is a little bit of a joke.)
First of all, I think that example would be pretty much everyone's answer. But I'm not like everyone (also I haven't read Harry Potter) so I'm going to go with... The Catastrophic History of Me and You by Jess Rothenburg. When I first read this, I absolutely loved it. But then I gave it to my friend to read, and she hated it. And after hearing what she said about it, I was actually kind of surprised I liked it so much. Like seriously, I gave it 5 stars which is super duper rare for me. Whats even weirder is I only read it in 2014, so it wasn't even that long ago! I won't read it again though because I want to keep pretending it is amazing.
8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
Not that I know of?? I do have a funny story recently but it's too hard for me to explain, and it's also kind of embarrassing. But it involves the word "unshed".
9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
It's called "The Body" by Stephen King. Story time! It's the book that the movie Stand by Me was based off of, and I really wanted to read it, so I ordered it on Book Depository thinking I would get the actual book. But no. I got some stupid school edition which is like a broken down version of the book and half of it is just discussion questions. Now as a teacher this would be fine, except I teach the extremely tiny humans, meaning this book is completely inappropriate so I can't even use it. And I couldn't return the book without paying almost more than what I paid for it.
10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?
After We Fell by Anna Todd. I still haven't gotten around to reading this one, even though my sister thinks it's the best book ever. I just can't even with those two characters.
11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
Lol no. I think I'm a terrible writer. I also get over things very quickly so I don't think I would ever get through writing a whole book.
12. When did you get into reading?
I got into reading in 2009 when I first read Twilight, I'm not even ashamed!
13. What is your favorite classic book?
I am not sure if it's considered a classic, but it is to me and that's The Diary of Anne Frank. I read that book and watched the movie so many times, it's just such a fascinating (and heartbreaking) story. If you haven't heard of Anne Frank, I highly suggest you go look it up. And read the book! And watch the movie because they did an awesome job of it!
14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?
What is Language Arts?? Like actual language like French or something? Or Drama? Either way, English was my best subject for sure.
15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?
It depends on who it was that gave it to me. If I was really close with them I'd probably tell them. But if I didn't know the person very well (which is highly unlikely because why would they give me a present?) I would just thank them and keep it.
16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?
I don't know?? I haven't read either of those. I've heard a few people compare The Selection by Kiera Cass with The Hunger Games?
17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while filming?
I don't film?
18. What is your favorite word?
I really like the word adhesive. But you've got to stress the hesive part otherwise it's not as cool.
19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
lol I thought they all meant the same thing?? Not sure what a dweeb is but out of nerd and dork I'd go with dork.
20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Well I've never read a book about fairies, but I'd rather a fairy than a vampire.
21. Shape shifters or Angels? Why?
I don't like this question. Neither. Shape shifters just remind me of werewolves from Twilight and I did not like that addition to the story. And angels I just don't know.
22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
Again. Neither. Spirits are creepy and werewolves are scary.
23. Zombies or Vampires?
I don't like either but I'd rather vampires over zombies.
24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
Oooooooh. Sometimes love triangles can be good (even though I can't think of one single example right now). But forbidden love just makes everything more interesting.
25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
LOL what do you guys think??
There we have it. If you got this far then, go you. I hope you weren't bored to tears! BEFORE YOU GO, I want to know your answer to question 10 and 18, so leave your answer in the comments! :)
