Bookblogger TMI Tag
So my awesome, fabulous and utterly amazing friend Priya tagged me to do this today (check out her post here). The Bookblogger TMI Tag is an adapted version of Carrie Hope Fletcher’s TMI tag from YouTube, so let’s get started
1)Which clothes style from a book character do you like?
This is really hard to say because you can’t really see what characters wear unless the book tells you. I have a lot of black clothes so I guess a Shadowhunter (that was a lame link) but I do have the smart look of a member of Erudite and I do dress similarly to Ellie (who is Étienne’s girlfriend in Anna and the French Kiss)
2)Your book boyfriend/ fictional crush?
NOAH SHAW NOAH SHAW OMG HE IS SO PERFECT OMG OMG NOAH SHAW NOAH SHAW MY HEART CAN’T HANDLE. I mean you know if I had to choose it would be Noah Shaw. Close second would be my Park Sheridan 😀
3)Ever loved a character but than started hating him/her?
Everyone might hate me, but I thought Jude was hot but then Noah came in and I was like bye bye Jude
4)Biggest/Longest book on your shelf?
‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’ is the biggest because it’s 766 pages long!
5)Heaviest book on your shelf?
City of Heavenly Fire (I found that out when Makayla dropped it on my hand)
6)Do you have any book posters?
On my wall I have two The Fault in Our Stars posters, a City of Heavenly Fire/Mortal Instruments poster and a We Were Liars poster. I also have a few other non-bookish posters which are Liverpool FC posters, One Direction posters and a film poster for It’s A Wonderful life
7)Do you have any book themed jewellery?
I do! I have a Fangirl necklace (from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell) and I have a lot of badges (such as an Anna, Lola and Isla badge.)
Mano / Nora / Mara aka NOAH AND MARA! This OTP is the most perfect relationship ever omg I just cant, I just can’t.
9)Favorite book series?
My favourite series would have to be Mara Dyer series.
10)Favorite Book-to-movie soundtrack?
The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit soundtrack because they are absolutely fabulous.
11)A book story you miss/ wish would continue?
ELEANOR AND PARK OMG THE ENDING I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED OMG WHAT ARE THOSE THREE WORDS?!
The Odyssey by Homer
13)Since when did you read books?
Since I could read really. I was clearing out some boxes and I found some of my childhood books and I remember going to my cousin’s house and borrowing her books.
14)Which Hogwarts house are you in?
I’ve been told I am in Hufflepuff, so guess who’s in Hufflepuff?
15)Quality you look for in a book?
I look to see if I click with the book (and with the characters/plot/style of book.)
16)Favourite book quote?
That is really hard but I think my favourite quote ever is “Be who you are and say how you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” – Cat in the Hat by Dr Suess.
Homer, I love his poems, his books, I so wish that I had learned Latin/Greek so I could study classics at university.
18)Favourite book cover?
There are loads of covers that I really love! So I’m just going to list a few:
•The Mara Dyer Series
•The Land of Stories
•The Assassin’s Blade
•The Harry Potter covers
19)Action or Romance?
Both! An action romance is the way to go!
20) Where do you go when a sad moment happens?
I just sit there in deep shock and break down crying, then I eat chocolate and just become depressed. You can tell I’ve read a sad book when I’m walking around with a blanket on my head and looking like I have been shot.
21) How long do you take to finish a book?
It depends on how quickly I get into the book. I am still ‘reading’ The Selection and even though my friends love it, I haven’t managed to finish it. But some books I read very quickly
22)How long is your mourning period?
It depends on who has died or just generally what has happened.
23)Least favourite book?
Twilight. Absolutely hate it.
24)Turn on in a character?
A hot, bad boy who is a big softie is just perfect. I will know when he’s a turn on. Like with Noah it’s his sexiness, with Park it’s sexiness and his cuteness and Colin it’s for his geekiness.
25)Turn off in a character?
Evil, yet evil can be sexy! BUT if they ever TOUCH my OTP (I’m talking to you Jude,) then I am turned against them forevs.
26)Reason I started my book blog?
Well why do I read? I read because each book has its own journey, its own plot, its own adventure. I don’t have to care about the standards of today’s society as I am transported from the world of Ancient Greece to a Dystopian World of the future. I write reviews because I want to share my experience of reading with others; I want to share each journey, each plot and each adventure because they deserve to be heard.
This blog allows me to express my feelings about why I enjoy and blogging will help me in all aspects of life. One way it will help is in my future when I start my career as I want to go into either law/business. To do this I will need to be able to form my own opinions and be able to justify why I think them. Reading books itself gives me the benefit of extending my vocabulary, which will also make me sound more intelligent than I actually am.
27)Name a scary book?
Mara Dyer is thrilling and creepy, but I wouldn’t class it as scary.
28)Last book that made you cry?
I can’t actually remember…
29)Last book that you gave 5 stars?
The Churchill Factor by Boris Johnson (Check out my review)
30)Any favourite book titles?
I don’t really have any lol. (Now I’m running out of things to say in this post!)
31)Last book you read?
The Churchill Factor by Boris Johnson. (Check out my review)
32)Book you’re currently reading?
I am not reading anything because I have controlled assessments this week, so it’s too hard for me to read, but I will get started next week on my February TBR.
33)Last book adaptation you watched?
It was probably all of the Twilight films as I watched them with Veena and Priya in December. I learned two things; one my OTP in Twilight is Carlla (#CARLLA FOREVER) and two, I have kind of been converted into a Twihard.
34)A book character you always wanted to talk to?
I would love to talk to either Mara, Anna or Eleanor because they’ve all had to deal with not fitting in so I would be able to relate to them and have an easy conversation with them. We could fangirl over their fabulous boyfriends and I think I would get along with them really well too.
35)An author you always wanted to talk to?
I would have to resurrect him, but I would love to talk to Homer. Homer is cool and he would be so cool to talk to.
36)Favourite book snack?
I don’t snack with books purely because I either concentrate on the food too much, or I’m too distracted by the book. I don’t snack just in case if I get my book dirty.
37)Book world you want to live in?
Oooh, that is hard! I really have no idea because I would fail in everything and in life.
38)Least world you want to live in?
A dystopian world ANY dystopian world.
39)Last time you smelled a book?
I actually can’t remember the last time I did.
40)Weird insults used in books?
I have to agree with Sofia and Priya here, Pansycake is a bit strabnge! (I can’t think of any for myself, lol)
41)Favourite romance book?
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell were just brilliant!
42)Do you write?
I write a diary/journal.
43)Favourite magical item?
Hmm, it would be cool to have a wand! I’d magic my way out of those awkward situations.
44)Your quidditch position?
I’ll be the commentator lol, I have the dodgiest knee in the world.
45)Name a song you connect to a book
The only one that springs to mind is Girl On Fire BY Alicia Keys for Catching Fire by Suzzane Collins
46)Favourite book related chat up line?
I don’t actually know any, so I had to Google it and found the most perfect buzzfeed post
47)Have you ever used it?
No because I go to an all girls school and all the boys I do know are not bookish enough for them.
48)Favourite book fandom?
The Harry Potter fandom because there are fabulous!
49)How many books do you own?
Lets just say I can’t actually fit all the books on my bookshelf…so quite a lot
50)Who do you tag?
