While Mr. Bennet silently reads in the study, and Mrs. Bennet’s tales of woe can be heard from miles away, you spend a lovely afternoon in the garden with your dramatic and doting sisters. What is a favourite novel of yours that features a strong sibling relationship?

 

25663637

Jonah and his siblings’ relationship in this book are super cute and realistic.

You can read my review of the book here.


You and Mary have decided to walk to the bookshop in Meryton to search for the newest releases. Which book or books are you likely to purchase?

Anything on my TBR that I happen to see really.

Or pretty much any signed copy…


Netherfield Park has been let at last, and the owner, a Mr. Charles Bingley, hosts a magnificent ball at his new estate. What fictional ball gown would you wear?

 

I would 100% where Hermoine’s yule ball dress (to prom, I really would).

hermione-yule-ball-dress.jpg


It is the Christmas Ball and Maria has asked you to join her at the piano. What music or song would you choose as an accompaniment to your current book?

Well…

My current book is Pride and Prejudice.

Marsh King’s Daughter by Eisley might go well though.

 


You’re helping Jane to take care of her younger cousins whilst staying with the Gardiners. Which fictional children would you include in your own family?

I’d have to adopt the Blackthorn children.

Seriously.

It’s a sombre evening at Hunsford Parsonage, and after dinner, Mr. Collins stands by the fireplace and quotes from the Good Book, while the party tries not to yawn too obviously. What is a memorable quote from a novel that has always stuck with you?

I would look to steal Icebreaker’s quote, because I love it, but I won’t.

Instead here are a few:

“I don’t want to be a man,” said Jace. “I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can’t confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead.”
“Well,” said Luke, “you’re doing a fantastic job.”
― Cassandra ClareCity of Ashes

“He could build a city. Has a certain capacity. There’s a niche in his chest
where a heart would fit perfectly
and he thinks if he could just maneuver one into place –
well then, game over.”
― Richard Siken

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein

“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
― Douglas AdamsThe Restaurant at the End of the Universe


You’ve been invited to dine at Rosings Park by none other than the infamous Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but the evening ends in disaster as the pompous Lady insults you and your family. Who’s your favourite fictional villain?

 

This is a hard one, because I like villains.

Sticking with books though, I’ll say James Moriarty.


As Lydia has gone down to Brighton with the Forsters, and Elizabeth is off on her jaunt to Derbyshire with the Gardiners, you also want to go away for a quick break. Which fictional location would be your perfect holiday destination?

 

HITSimagenologoRESIZED_0

I’ll just leave that there.


You’re running to the fine horse chestnut tree on the green to relive some of your favourite childhood reading memories. What is one that you remember most fondly?

Being about eight and very stubbornly information the school librarian that I was going to read Harry Potter, my first grade reading level be damned (though with less cursing because I was, you know, eight).


You’re on a tour at Pemberley and you come across Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy emerging from the pond, scandalously clad in only his wet underdrawers and shirt. You can’t help but swoon at the sight. Aside from Mr. Darcy, who is your favourite romantic interest?

That list is too long to even contemplate writing and I’m incapable of picking favorites.

I’m not sure who has read/enjoyed the book and who hasn’t, so no worries if you don’t want to do this. If anyone else wants to though, feel free to participate, consider this your tag!

It was a fun tag though!

The Candy Book Tag (2)

I was tagged by Brilliantly Bookish, check out their blog!

The tag was created by Jessica @bookishserendipity.

I technically did this tag already (The Candy Book Tag) but I was tagged and I did it so long ago that I felt I could do it again.


Which Books Remind You Of….

1. Apples— Ah. Healthy food. It is deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

I don’t read many books I’m not sure I’ll love. I guess Catcher in the Rye would fit. I never even finished it, I got bored. I’ll finish at some point before AP lit next year.

2.Black Jellybeans— WHY DO THESE EXIST?

I like black jellybeans…

But Lord of the Flies fits. I hate that book.

3. Chocolate Kisses-– Aww…this novel had the best romance.

To All The Boys I Loved Before!

It’s actually the cutest!

4. Gummy Spiders— Eek! You made sure to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

I don’t really read scary/horror books. The Long Walk by Stephen King unsettled me while reading it, but I was pretty much fine afterwards.

5. Jumbo Lollypop— This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!

Pretty much any Cassandra Clare book. They are amazing, but long as hell.

6. Cotton Candy-– Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think: children’s or MG fiction.

My Sister The Vampire series comes to mind. As does The Magic Half and Inkheart.

WHAT WOULD THAT VILLAIN READ? – TAG

This super fun tagged was created by Lashaan and Trang over @Bookidote!! Go check them out!

I was tagged by the ever lovely and amazing Orangutan Librarian – check out their blog, its one of my favorites!

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE villains. I’m fond of villain redemptions stories, and antiheroes tend to be some of my favorite characters. So this tag is great!


Rules:

  • Pick 5+ villains and wonder what books they are most likely to read (feel free to use our villains or find new ones!)
  • Nominate bloggers! As many as you want!
  • Have fun in the world of villainy!

–1. Catwoman –  Six of Crows

Its about criminals, but criminals who aren’t bad people and can be redeemed and fin love along the way (from what I’ve heard at least) – she’d love it.

2. Dracula – Twilight

I don’t think he’d pick this one up on his own. Someone would give it to him as a joke to horrify him and he’d keep reading because he’d be entertained by how wrong the 21st century is about vampires. It’d be his guilty pleasure read.

–3. The Joker – The Book Thief

This book is about the depths of human depravity (holocaust) from the view of death himself. The Joker would love this.

–4. Moriarty – Murder on the Orient Express

He’d be a fan of mystery novels I think.

–5. Voldemort – They Called Themselves the K.K.K.: The Birth of an American Terrorist Group

(yes, I did straight up google KKK books, why would I know this off the top of my head?)

I didn’t want to repeat any of the (marvelous) answers I’d seen before (like Mein Krampf) but similarly, since Voldemort is all about that racial purity, I thought he might want to see how even the muggle accomplished it.

-6. Loki – War of the Worlds

He’d enjoy living vicariously through “aliens destroying earth” stories.

-7. Dr. Horrible – Vicious

Dr. Horrible would relate so hard Victor Vale – both villains, neither a bad person, both hate the so-called hero who is dating the girl they like… It works!

-8. Hades – Percy Jackson

I think he’d enjoy reading his own story – if only to complain about everything thats “wrong” and how under appreciated he is. He’s a drama queen.


I TAG:

 

The first 5 are the same villains as the original. I added the last three for fun. Feel free to use them!

What do you think of my answers?

Do you agree?

Let me know!

 

The Handwriting Tag

I was tagged by the lovely bloggers behind Wild Heart Reviews – check out the amazing blog!

  • Real Name
  • URL of my blog

Sorry for the shadows…

And for the wait…

But look it did it!

This is my “oh wait other people need to decipher this” handwriting rather than my “just writing to be done / class notes only I will use” handwriting. My friend calls the second kind “samscript”…Yeah…

Hopefully this is legible. My handwriting is very terrible usually.

I was also tagged by two other absolutely amazing book bloggers Alex @ Lord of the Trekkies and The Book Corps – Thank you! And check them out!

The Harry Potter Book Tag was created by Trang and Lashaan @ Bookidote and all the graphics below belong to them.


1flagrate

A book you found the theme interesting, but you’d like to rewrite it.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

And

Matched by Ally Condie

Both had a really great premise (generally speaking, free will and love are gone/illegal) but both had such irritating MC’s and love triangles that I couldn’t continue on with it.


2alohomora

The first book in a series that got you hooked.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Most people find the first book hard to get into, but it made me really want to continue that series to know what the hell was going on. Its so long but so worth it.


3accio

A book you wish you could have right now.

So many. just, so many.

Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is definitely up there though. for sure.


4avadakedavra

A killer book. Both senses. Take it as you like.

The Dexter series definitely fits this bill – for both senses.

As does Hannibal.


5confundo

A book that you found really confusing.

Not many books confuse me.

Although, I tried to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies when I was about 7 and gave up after two pages because we were introduced to about 50 characters in that span and I was utterly lost.


6epectopatronum

Your spirit animal book.

I don’t know.

Thats like picking children.

Lets just say Harry Potter and be done.


7spetumsemtra

A dark twisted book.

I don’t really read horror.

Though Misery by Stephen King is to this day the freakiest thing I’ve ever read/watched.

Because IT COULD HAPPEN.


8adaasd

A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals to be more than it is.

Because You’ll Never Meet Me (Review: Because You’ll Never Meet Me)

I picked it up on a whim and its now one of my favorite books ever. So much more than I anticipated. And theres a sequel! (Arc Review: Nowhere Near You)

The Mulan Book Tag

I was tagged by the magnificent Once Upon A Bookshelf for this tag.

515QQKeD95L._SY445_


The Rules:

  • Mention the creator (Kirsty and the Cat Read)
  • Thank/mention the person who tagged you
  • Match books or characters to the questions below
  • tag as many people as you like🙂

1. Reflection “When will my reflection show who I am inside” – An inaccurate book cover that doesn’t really reflect what the book is about.

Okay there are A LOT of terrible covers. First one I can think of?

14744489

The font is pretty, but why is it just legs?

2. Mushu – A character with a lot to prove.

Isn’t that most characters?

I’m going to go with Percy Jackson – “a lot to prove” is basically his character description.

3. “I’ll make a man outta you!” – A character who develops the most OR a book with some kick-a** training scenes

The training scenes from Divergent stand out as being particularly epic!

4. “A Girl Worth Fighting for” – A ship you will defend till your last breath

I’m going with Adam and Ronan from The Raven Cycle – I’ve been shipping them since book 2.

5. Huns – A book/character that gives you the creeps

Not a book but – Ms. Grundy from Riverdale. Student/teacher things freak me out.

6. Mulan – Your favorite bada** female protagonist

I’m bad with favorites…

Lets go with Ginny Weasley – she deserved better than her movie portrayal.

The Diverse Book Tag

I was tagged by the ever amazing and lovely  Icebreaker694 and with everything going on, I think diverse reading is probably more important than ever.

A lot of people say diverse reading/writing is “trying too hard” or they liken it to affirmative action, or that the portrayals feel forced or stereotypical, that mental illnesses are glorified. That is true in a lot of cases, but it shows an effort. And if we don’t seek out the good ones, more will never be written.

Interesting Link: Diversity In YA – Statistics


The Rules

  • Credit the original creator, Read Diverse Books.
  • The Diverse Books Tag is a bit like a scavenger hunt. I will task you to find a book that fits a specific criteria and you will have to show us a book you have read or want to read.
  • If you can’t think of a book that fits the specific category, then I encourage you to go look for one. A quick Google search will provide you with many books that will fit the bill. (Also, Goodreads lists are your friends.) Find one you are genuinely interested in reading and move on to the next category.

Find a book starring a lesbian character.

25164304

I own the e-book and want to get to this soon.

Find a book with a Muslim protagonist.

msmarvel-197x300

Dying to read this.

Find a book set in Latin America.

89763

Read this for the first time in fourth grade. Its wonderful.

Find a book about a person with a disability.

Find a science-fiction or fantasy book with a POC protagonist.

Took some googling but these both sound interesting.

Find a book set in (or about) any country in Africa.

 7507944

Find a book set in South Asia (Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc.).

 a795c650-9257-0132-4428-0ebc4eccb42f

az7yV_s-200x150


A CHARACTER APPEARANCE THAT YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY?

I ALWAYS think Jace from TMI has blue eyes.(His eyes are gold)

And I always forget Cammie from Gallager Girls is meant to be light brown / bleached – I always think its brown for some reason.

I’m sure there are more, but I’m blanking.


A CHARACTER  NAME YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG?

Everything written by Sarah J Maas.

I’m bad at names at the best of times – I’ve mostly begun mumbling the names and recognizing them without being able to say them.


AN OVERUSED TROPE THAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

Enemies to lovers – its the sort of slow-burn / a little angsty mostly fluffy romance I like in my contemporaries.

See also – friends to lovers.

I also love villain redemption arcs – but I never see those EVER – I need more of them.


A CLICHE CHARACTER TYPE THAT YOU LIKED BETTER SEEING ON-SCREEN THAN READING ABOUT?

Honestly, most side/best friend characters are hilarious on screen but fall flat and 2-dimensional in books.


A WORD/PHRASE THAT YOU LEARNED BECAUSE OF ITS USE IN A BOOK?

Masochist –

This is the first word that came to my brain for this question, because little 4th grade me learn it from Twilight and had to continuously explain why I knew such a high level word at age 9.


HAVE YOU EVER NOT READ/NOT COMPLETED A READING REQUIREMENT FOR SCHOOL?

I gave up on The Count of Monte Cristo – I have powered though many an assignment but I couldn’t. It was too long, I was too bored. I read sparksnotes.


HAVE YOU EVER (OR HAVE WANTED TO) SKIPPED A CHAPTER FROM THE POINT OF VIEW YOU WEREN’T INTEREST IN?

I’ve looked ahead to when the characters I liked more would appear – for example, looking for Annabeth or Percy POV for Heroes of Olympus – but I’ve never flat out skipped.


HAVE YOU EVER CANCELLED SOCIAL PLANS TO READ A BOOK?

Yes…

Sometimes…

More often then not I bring my book with me and ignore my social plan companions though.

(I swear I do have social skills)
