Hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day yesterday! Today I thought it would be fun to do this tag I found floating around on YouTube. Hope you enjoy!
Do you get sick while reading in the car?
I don't get sick, per say, but I do get headaches and dizziness.
What author's style is unique to you and why?
Taherah Mafi (author of Shatter Me) has an amazing writing style using the cross out line; she repeats words and just in general, her writing is great!
Harry Potter or Twilight?
Definitely Harry Potter- and I have never read or seen Twilight!
Do you carry a book bag? If so, what's in it besides books?
No, I don't. I have a purse which I use sometimes.
Do you smell your books?
Well, I don't go through all of my books to smell them; however, I did read Delirium when I was at Florida almost a year ago and it smells so good!
Books without or with illustrations?
It doesn't really matter that much, but it's makes the book a little more fun in my opinion.
What book did you love reading but then discovered it wasn't quality writing?
I haven't had to go through that experience yet.
Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood?
Not really. But I did remember I would try to read Junie B. Jones as fast as I could and my record time was two hours and forty-five minutes in second grade.
What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
Either Delirium Stories by Lauren Oliver which has 100 something pages or The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan which also has around 100 pages.
Thickest book on your shelf?
I actually don't have Harry Potter on my shelf, so it has to be Mark of Athena which has 574 pages which isn't a lot!
Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself as an author?
I do write! You can see my story by clicking "They Chose Me (My Story)" above! And I hope to be an author one day, but if I were to be, I don't think I would be a good one.
When did you get into reading?
I liked to read when I was younger a lot. I actually remember in kindergarten I was so frustrated because I was learning how to spell simple words and not writing sentences. Then in 5th to the beginning of 7th grade (until I read THG) I hated reading. Indeed, it was a bad time.
The only classic I have read that I know of is To Kill a Mockingbird which I liked! A lot of classics are adult books, and I prefer YA.
What is your best subject in school?
Grade wise- Social Studies because in the past two years I have only received one A on my report card-the rest were A+'s. English is really easy for me too. But then again, students in my class don't understand apostrophes. It's sad. If it's plural ending in s, it's like ducks' pond. Anything else is 's.
What would happen if someone gave you a book that you read but hated it?
If it was someone like my parents, I would ask to return or get another one. If not then I might try to reread it if it has good ratings or something. Most of the time, I don't get books for presents! :(
What is a lesser known series that is similar to THG or HP?
Any dystopia like Legend (Marie Lu) or the increasingly popular Divergent trilogy (Veronica Roth). Forgot to say, but about a week ago, it was my anniversary of reading Divergent! I know you all care so, so much.
What is a bad habit you do besides rambling while filming?
Like I said, this was made for YouTube, but something I do that's bad while typing is opening other links while I should be typing to browse elsewhere.
What is your favorite word?
Hmm... it's fun saying antidisestablishmentarianism because it makes you sound all smart. For some reason, I like antebellum too. And capricious. I don't know.
Nerd, dork, or geek?
Nerd: an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit: a computer nerd.
Dork: Slang. a silly out-of-touch person who tends to look odd or behave ridiculously around others; a social misfit:
Geek: a computer expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often considered offensive when used by outsiders.) I'm not antisocial or awkward around others, but besides that a nerd, probably. Obsessive over books and THG... yes.
Vampires or fairies?
If it's like TMI fairies where they're all cunning, fairies. But otherwise, vampires.
Shiftshapers or angels?
I like both, but shapeshifting is really cool.
Spirits or werewolves?
Zombies or vampires?
Hmm... I will have to go with vampires.
Love triangle or forbidden love?
It depends how they're done. If the love triangle is poor, than forbidden love. If the forbidden love is annoying and over excessive, than love triangle. Have to go with forbidden love though.
Full on romance or action packed with few love scenes?
By far an action packed novel with few love scenes... like THG! Or Divergent, or Legend, or PJO... great books.
I TAG ALL OF YOU.
