What Cats Do Book Tag

I was tagged by the absolutely perfect human being behind Icebreaker694 – seriously, she tags me in things all the time and doesn’t kill me when I’m a year late.

I was also tagged by a more recent blog find – Sophie @ Blame Chocolate – who is as amazingly sweet as the chocolate she’s obsessed with. Check out her amazing blog!

Her blog is also amazing so, go check her out!

While me catching up on being chronically behind is nothing new, I was avoiding this tag in particular for a while for a reason I haven’t mentioned before on this blog.

In October, my cat Angel died – on my birthday no less. I’m not going to go into it, but, it is why I’ve been avoiding this.

We still have another cat Jackie who likes to sit on my homework though. He’s my sister’s cat.

Let’s stop thinking about sad things okay!

The Twilight Tag

I saw this over at A Book Lover’s Playlist and it looked like fun, so I’m doing it despite not being tagged!


1. What movie and book is your favorite?
Twilight – for both.

2. What has your experience been like with Twilight?

My grandma gave me the first book for Christmas in 4th grade because my cousin Jasmine loved the books (she was in 5th grade at the time – so my grandma didn’t realize it was inappropriate for a 9 year old).
So, I read it, and I really loved it, and made my mom buy me the next book. And the next book. And the next book.
Mind you I was nine – Jacob was my favorite solely because he was Sharkboy – and I skipped chances of pages in both Eclipse and Break Dawn because it had “weird adult stuff” – I didn’t fully read the books until 7th grade.
I made my parents watch the movies with me. I got my friends to read the books and the entire series and started a shipping war.
The teacher at one point called my mom because my book wasn’t appropriate for my age, my mom said I could read what I wanted.
My and Twilight had a whole thing.

3. Favorite character?
I loved Seth Clearwater, and I love Alice and Jasper.


4. Team Edward or Jacob?
I was team Jacob for most of the series – now I’m Team Edward.


5. Your favorite Cullen (other than Edward)
Alice! She’s a wonderful pixie.


6. Favorite song from the soundtrack? Or favorite soundtrack?
Basic but: 1000 Years from Breaking Dawn.


7. How often do you watch a Twilight movie?
Every few years now I’d guess. I rewatched Twilight a few months ago though.


8. Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf?
Vampire – not sure how well being a werewolf would go since I’m allergic to dogs.


9. What vampire power would you want?
Any? One of the elemental powers probably. Or Jasper’s emotions thing.


10. Most embarrassing thing you did because of Twilight?
Made my mom take me to the midnight premier of Break Dawn Part II – and wore Twilight necklaces/shirts a lot.


11. A part that made you cry in the book and in the movie?
A lot of things – most notably Rosalie’s backstory.


12. Name all of the movies from your favorite to least favorite.
Twilight

Breaking Dawn Part II
Eclipse
Breaking Dawn Part I
New Moon

Anyone who wants to do this.
