THE RABBIT EARS BOOK TAG


Book Tag

Hey everyone! I just created this new book tag called “The Rabbit Ears Book Tag” and I just wanted to give everyone a gist of how this works by starting off the tag myself! So, here we go!

The questions for this tag are:

The Fool and the Flying Ship

1. The Fool and the Flying Ship:  Favorite Book that made you laugh

My favorite book that made me laugh was Allie Brosh’s “Hyperbole and a Half!”  The illustrations were hilarious and the narrative was so unique!

The Velveteen Rabbit
2. The Velveteen Rabbit:  Favorite Book that made you cry

I cried so much during John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars.” The ending just broke me to pieces.

John Henry
3. John Henry:  Favorite Book that inspired you

Neil Gaiman’s “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” inspired me to see the power of reading and it just made me appreciate books a lot more!  Also, has a strong female protagonist!

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
4. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow:  Favorite Book that scared you

The scariest book I’ve read so far was Stephen King’s “Carrie,” as the idea about someone using their telepathic powers to slaughter a school was pretty creepy to me!

The Emperor and the Nightingale
5. The Emperor and the Nightingale :  Favorite Book that took place in a foreign country

I really enjoyed Marissa Meyer’s “Cinder” as it took place in New Beijing and I just loved the Chinese culture explored in that book.

Follow the Drinking Gourd
6. Follow the Drinking Gourd:  Favorite Book about Diversity

Brian K. Vaughan’s “Saga” series was always a fantastic book that promoted diversity and I just loved the characters in that series!  Also, Kurtis J. Wiebe’s “Rat Queens” series is a close second!

East of the Sun West of the Moon
7. East of the Sun West of the Moon:  Favorite Book about Romance

I have read a lot of romance novels that really hit me to the core, so I chose Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ novel “Kiss An Angel” since it was the most powerful romance novel I had read yet!

How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin

How the Camel Got His Hump
8. How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin and How the Camel Got His Hump:  Most Unusual Book You’ve Read

The most unusual (and favorite) book I’ve read was Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere” as it was full of bizarre moments that twisted my mind, but made me love the book even more!

Pecos Bill
9. Pecos Bill:  Favorite Book that was adventurous and action packed

Probably the most action packed comic I’ve ever read was Joss Whedon’s run on “Astonishing X-Men.” Every moment was pretty much an intense ride for the X-Men!

The Bremen Town Musicians
10. The Bremen Town Musicians:  Favorite Book about Friendship

Lisa Kleypas’ “Wallflower” series was a fantastic series that was about the friendship between a set of women who are trying to get married and yet try to stay close to each other as much as possible. I just loved their humorous and witty dynamic with each other!

A Gingerbread Christmas
11. A Gingerbread Christmas:  Favorite Book that was holiday themed

Jill Shalvis’ “Simply Irresistible” took place during Christmas time and it was such a heartwarming and hilarious story that made me feel good inside!

Brer Rabbit and the Wonderful Tar Baby
12. Brer Rabbit and the Wonderful Tar Baby:  Favorite Book with a rivalry between two characters

Alan Moore’s “Batman: The Killing Joke” was probably my most favorite interpretation of the rivalry between the Joker and Batman!

The Five Chinese Brothers Book Cover
13. The Five Chinese Brothers:  Favorite Book about family

I have always loved Lisa Kleypas “Hathaway” series as the Hathaway family go through some tough times, but they still stick together no matter what!

Anansi

14. Anansi:  Favorite Book that has animal characters

Patricia Briggs’ “Moon Called” does have a werewolf in the book, so I would definitely count that!

Rip Van Winkle
15. Rip Van Winkle:  Book you fell asleep through

Mary Balogh’s “A Summer to Remember” sort of put me to sleep. Maybe, I’ll give that book a second chance since I didn’t finish reading it the first time.

And the people I nominate are:

Hello everyone! WWW Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words and you just answer three questions and leave your links down below!  Sorry I’ve been missing in action for the last few months, but hopefully I’ll be getting back on track with my reading this time around!

 

WWW 3 Ws

 

WWW What are you currently reading

I just started reading “The Cruel Prince” by Holly Black and man, did it start off with a bang!  I  never would have expected this book to start off with such a tragedy!  Now, I’m more interested than ever to see where this book goes!

WWW What did you recently finish reading

I just finished reading “Illuminae” by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and I loved it!  I just loved the way that this book was written as it was mostly written as documents and diagrams that were made by the characters and I loved all the plot twists that happened in this book!

WWW What do you think you'll read next

 

 

WWW

The first book I wanted to read is “Our Dark Duet” by Victoria Schwab.  I had just taken a break from reading this book and hopefully I’ll dive back into it! The next book I wanted to read is “Night of Cake and Puppets” by Laini Taylor. I have been reading the “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” series and I really wanted to read this little short story from the series! I had just recently picked up a new book written by C.G. Drews called “A Thousand Perfect Notes” and this would be the very first book I actually read that is written by a fellow book blogger (Paper Fury, anyone?) and I can’t wait to dive into this book soon!
