3 Days, 3 Quotes Tag | Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3


Hey everybody!  I was just tagged by Jasmine @ How Useful It Is and this seems like an interesting tag!  All you have to do with this tag is to list your favorite quotes for three days.  Since I’m terrible at keeping up with doing these tags on a daily basis, I’m going to cheat a bit and post all three of my favorite quotes in this one post!

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

 

I tagged anyone who wants to do this tag!!!

This Or That Book Tag!


I saw this tag at It’s All About Books and I wanted to give it a shot!  So, here are my answers for this tag!


Reading on the couch or on the bed?

I love reading on the bed since it’s more comfortable and I have enough room to spread my books around!

Male main character or female main character?

It doesn’t really matter to me, as long as the character is interesting, although I have read more books with female main characters than male main characters.

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

I enjoy eating sweets whenever I’m reading, especially any snack with peanut butter in it!

Trilogies or quartets?

It all depends on what kind of story they are telling and how long the story needs to be to wrap up, although I probably choose trilogies because they’re shorter to read through.

First person point of view or third person point of view?

I don’t mind reading first person point of view since we actually get inside the main character’s mind, but I prefer third person point of view because we have a better understanding of what character is being introduced in the story.

Reading at night or in the morning?

I enjoy reading at night more since I would have more time during the night to read rather than during the day.

Libraries or bookstore?

I actually like both since I would get books either way, although with bookstores, I can actually buy the book I’m interested in!

Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

Books that make me laugh since I don’t usually read books that are too depressing.

Black book covers or white book covers?

Either one is fine as long as the cover is beautiful to look at.

Character-driven or plot-driven stories?

I prefer both since I think that a good story needs both plot driven and character driven stories to make it work.

And I nominate….

EVERYONE!

Anyone who’s interested in doing this tag are free to do it!

The Autumn Book Tag!


Autumn-Leaves-Sunshine

 

Hey everyone! I’ve been tagged by Raven @ Dreamy Addictions to do the The Autumn Book Tag. Thanks Raven!


What is your favorite thing about Autumn?

What I love most about Autumn is jumping through the leaves as they fall to the ground and get involved in Fall activities like Halloween and Thanksgiving!

What book reminds you of your school days?

The book that really reminded me of my school days is “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B. White since I used to read that book all the time in elementary school!

 

What book cover reminds you of Autumn?

The cover of “It Happened One Autumn” by Lisa Kleypas definitely reminds me of Autumn since well, Autumn is in the title!

What is your favorite horror or Halloween story?

My favorite horror story is the “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” Collection by Alvin Schwartz since the illustrations are awesome and the stories are genuinely scary for a series that is aimed at children!

What is your favourite horror or Halloween film?

I love watching “The Shining” starring Jack Nicholson! It’s so scary and thrilling!  Another Halloween film I love is “The Nightmare Before Christmas” since the characters are all memorable!

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!

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.
