The Pastry Book Tag


Pastry Book Tag

Hey everyone! I just been tagged once again for another book tag called “The Pastry Book Tag” and the person who tagged me for this book tag was Giovanna @ Bookcoma! Now onto the tag!

1.) Croissant:
Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.

I have always loved the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and that is  definitely a series that is highly popular among many book fans!

2.) Macaron:
Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end.

At first, I had a hard time trying to get through Colleen Hoover’s “Hopeless,” but after I reached the second half of the book, it turned out to be a great read!

3.) Vol-au-vent:
Name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat.

I thought I was going to enjoy Margo Lanagan’s “Black Juice,” but it ended up not being interesting to me in the end.

4.) Pain au chocolat:
Name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else.

Definitely Laini Taylor’s “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” series! I thought that it was going to be another vampire romance novel, but the introduction of angels and chimeras and the heroine’s true identity really surprised me!

5.) Profiterole:
Name a book or series that doesn’t get enough attention.

The Fool and the Flying Ship (1991)

The one book that I always try to tell people about is Eric Metaxas’ “The Fool and the Flying Ship!” It’s absolutely one of my most favorite books of all time and yet it doesn’t get a lot of attention in the book fan base!

6.) Croquembouche:
Name a book or series that’s extremely complex.

Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods” is definitely one book that was pretty complicated to understand, especially if you’re not aware of the various myths of Gods in literature like Anansi the Spider Man and Thor.

7.) Napoleon:
Name a movie or TV show based off a book that you liked better than the book itself.

I’ve picked “Shrek” because I’ve read the original children’s book by William Steig and while it was interesting to read, I felt that it wasn’t as good as the movie.

8.) Empanada:
Name a book that was bittersweet.

I found Laini Taylor’s “Days of Blood and Starlight,” the sequel to “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” to be pretty bittersweet, especially with Akiva atoning for what he did in the first book.

9.) Kolompeh:
Name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country:

Most of Lisa Kleypas’ “Wallflowers” series takes place in Britain and I’ve really enjoyed that series!

10.) Pate a Choux:
Name one food from a book or series that you would like to try.

Oh, I can’t remember the names of the food items in the “Harry Potter” series, but one that comes to mind is their butter beer and I would love to try that someday!

Sunshine Blogger Award


 

Hey everyone!  I just been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Shivalika of Whimsy Journals, so I would love to thank her for nominating me for this award!  Now onto the questions!

Rules:

– Thank the person/people who nominated you
– Answer the questions from your nominators.
– Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.

 

Questions:

 

hrt Is there any spooky incident that happened to you?

Let’s see, when I was little, there was an incident when I was little that I saw my covers become the shape of a twisted monster and this was when I was sleeping in the dark for the first time!  I was so scared about that incident that I slept with the door open until I got a little older!

 

hrt What’s the story behind your blog name?

1240247096259-Rabbit_Ears_Ent-LLC_outlines

I named my blog “Rabbit Ears Productions Blog” because I was a huge fan of this old children’s animated company called “Rabbit Ears Productions” that came out during the 1980s and the 1990s and featured celebrities famous during those times narrating famous children’s stories such as “The Three Little Pigs” and “Paul Bunyan.”  I made this blog because I wanted to discuss about Rabbit Ears Productions with other bloggers who are either interested in knowing more about this company or are fans of this company!

 

hrt If you could change your hair colour, what would it be?

I would like to change my hair color to red someday!

 

hrt If you could change your eye colour, what would it be?

I would like to have my eye color become blue!

 

hrt A quote from a book you are currently reading?

Here’s a quote from “Brown-Eyed Girl” by Lisa Kleypas:

He was a striking man, his features bold, the nose strong, the jaw sturdy.  The stubble on his face looked heavy enough to sand paint off a car.  He was big-boned and lean, the muscles of his arms and chest as defined as cut stone beneath the worn layer of this T-shirt.  A disreputable-looking man, maybe a little dangerous.

 

hrt Which is the latest movie you really enjoyed watching?

I really enjoyed watching the 2014 version of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” even though there were a lot of people who didn’t seem to like that movie.

hrt Name the thing that is lying on your right side.

I have a can of  Arizona Mucho Mango tea on the right side of my table and I’m drinking it while I’m typing this all down!

 

hrt Which book would you love to take with you on your next holiday?

I would love to take Andy Weir’s “The Martian” with me on my next holiday!

hrt Who according to you is the most misunderstood book character?

I think Hardy Cates from Lisa Kleypas’ “Blue-Eyed Devil” is a pretty misunderstood character, due to his actions in the previous book “Sugar Daddy.”

hrt Who is your favourite book villain?

My favorite book villains are probably Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar from Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere.” They were some of the creepiest villains I had ever read in any book!

hrt Which book character would you like to meet in real life?

I definitely would love to meet Daemon Black from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s “Obsidian” in real life!  Who hasn’t met a  sexy alien in real life?
