I absolutely love the Idea of looking at the books that aren’t quite perfect.
Contemporary Romance stories are ones that I’ve only recently gotten into. ‘Forever Interupted’ was one that I found was a bit farfetched. Not the concept of coping after loss but just the instant love of the characters and the irrationality of some. Just really left a bad taste in my mouth about the genre, and I’ve really been enjoying reading them!
This is a book that I am currently reading and am about fifteen chapter into. The dialoge has already made me cringe so much!
I don’t have any books set in Australia because even though I am Australian I’ve found that I really don’t like reading books set here.
As much as I love the Twilight Saga and love the characters within the story, Bella as a main character is one that I definitely find annoying. She can be so whiney at times that I just want to skip to the part where she stops complaining. This seems to be particularly pertient to the first book.
Why are you complaining about moving to Forks?! You chose to do it!
I can’t really think of any, I try to research the stories a lot before I pick up a book. Don’t want to waste my monry buying something I’m not going to enjoy.
I’m not sure if he would be classified as a ‘friend’ to our main character Vasalisa, but the priest Constantine is probably one of the worst characters I’ve ever encountered in a story. He is so selfish and always blames others for his thoughts feelings and actions. He is also more than willing to sacrafice a devoted follower to save himself.
Probably one of the few characters I actually hate.
Jake. Jake. Jake. Jake. Jake.
To say he is controlling is an understatement. He would be the actual wprst partnet ever!
I would have to say the Neverseen in the Keeper of Lost Cities series. Honestly their plans are aways so good!
The Fang family from ‘The Poppy War’ are the actual worst people!
The Sky in the Deep generally disappointed me and the plot twist was one that I guessed from the beginning and I am awful at predicting these things.
Instalove is something that I just want to avoid, it just gets so frustrating. I don’t get it at all.
I don’t know what it is about these covers but I walked past this series so many times in the book store because I just couldn’t get around them!
The Geography of Lost things definitely disappointed me, especially the ending.
Its not that I didn’t enjoy reading The Queen of Nothing’ by Holly Black but I don’t understand that it was so hyped.
I definitely WANT to say fantasy for this but it would definitely be a contemporary, probably with a late 20’s main character who people don’t really care to read about.
Maybe Victoria from The Twilight Saga, She definitely is insane but I can understand that she went a bit more off her rocker after James was killed by Edward and his family.
Maybe Calla from ‘The Simple Wild’ by K.A. Tucker. I definitely want to go to Alaska, however I am definitely more high maintenance.
I loved the Saddle Club books when I was younger but now, obviously, not so much.
As much as I probably wouldn’t be as brave or as badass I would definitely want to be Aelin from ‘Kingdom of Ash’.
I think the fact that I always have multiple books on the go is indicative of my personality. I am constantly focusing on a million different things and once and trying to complete all of them. I also really enjoy reading and prefer spending my time completing activities where I am by myself or with a select few people.
I definitely learnt how to challenge myself from reading and that I am more capable than I believe I am. I’ve definitely accepted myself more from reading as well.
I have absolutely no idea where I saw this tag, but I knew it would be a perfect one to post for Halloween!
I don’t really like to be scared, however I did read a horror books this Halloween and I thought it was pretty good so I’d have to say ‘Wilder Girls’ by Rory Power.
honestly any horror book! I am so easily scared!
Oh my gosh so many options. Maybe… Morgan Matson? I follow her on !nstagram and love her on Instagram stories also she has the cutest dog!
Ok, so I know that’s so many options but I can’t just choose one. I’d love to dress up as Sophie from ‘The Keeper of Lost Cities’ series by Shannon Messenger. I love the whole elven world that she has created.
I would also love to dress up as Celaena Sardothian from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I have loved the series this year and Celaena is a super bad ass character.
As a mad Harry Potter fan I love dressing up as a Hufflepuff and living my best Harry Potter life.
In terms of easier costumes – as in characters from Contemporary books – I would love to dress up as either Calla from The Simple Wild by K. A. Tucker or as Daisy Jones from Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
oh 100% a real magic wand!
again sticking with the harry potter themed answers but definitely the Harry Potter world, there are so many amazing sweets!
That’s a really hard one. Definitely Erewan from the Throne of Glass series and Voldemort from the Harry Potter series but also the Neverseen from the Keeper of Lost Cities series too!
There are some seriously scary villains!
I feel like a Shadow Hunter would be relatively easy, however I’ve been feeling very Twilight-y lately so probably a vampire!
ooooh that is so tough there are so many great candies but I’ve got to go with the classic Chocolate Frog! Need to collect all those famous witches and wizards!
I don’t think I have a favourite candy that is specific to Halloween but I love anything milk chocolate!
I was scrolling through WordPress reader, because who doesn’t, when I camp upon a tag. I’d seen this tag before and had even attempted it but I got distracted and forgot to finish it. So we are back, this time to actually complete the tag.
Did you forget about Kilorn? Well you shouldn’t have! He may not be the centre of attention but he has stuck by Mare’s side since day one and didn’t even hesitate to join the Scarlet Guard. Just like Kilorn, your loyalty and bravery are your most admirable qualities. Rise, Red as the dawn.
Sure, sometimes you act without thinking, but your determined to do what you believe in and you’re often coming from the right place. Try to keep your faith in the world around you – your ability to find the beautiful in the ordinary is a gift.
Shockingly. you’re an overwhelmingly sarcastic bookworm. You try to look on the brighter side of things, but your snarky sense of humor hides depths of concern. You’re probably the most responsible of your friends, as they know they can always count on you.
Yes, you can be known to be feisty and sometimes you feel like life can be unfair. But you won’t let that get in the way of your happiness. You use your charm to your advantage and won’t take any nonsense. But when you finally let your barriers down your personality shines and so do others around you.
The embodiment of beauty and grace, your gentle heart and soft words soothe the bitter hearts of those around you. Your kindness and courage are rarer than the strongest of high fae powers – never lose them to bitterness and despair.
You are outspoken, and walk to the beat of your own drum. You’ve always been different and take pride in your individualistic nature. Although you try to maintain a rebellious streak, you are consistently told you are sensible. Remember, don’t kiss strange boys.
Yeah, no one better cross you. Mess with you and it’s a death sentence. You’re not one to play games and are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals – no matter how bloody it can get. But life doesn’t always have to be filled with hate! Just blood, lots of blood.
I don’t think I’ve ever regifted a book that I’ve been given, however I don’t get given too many books that I haven’t explicitly asked for.
I have 100% done this. I know I did it in high school at least once when I just couldn’t get through an assigned text in the designated time.
I don’t think I’ve ever done that. I’ve definitely returned books late to the library but I’ve always returned them.
only once and that was the Amanda Lovelace Poetry collection and boy did it stress me out! It wasn’t even a series where you would need to read them in order but I absolutely hate reading series out of order. Even when there is one series and then its companion series. I will read them in order.
Not intentionally or that I know of. I’ve I’ve spoiled a book for you I am so sorry!
I used to dog ear my pages all the time! That’s how my mum used to read so when I started reading longer books I just did what I saw her do. Now I am a religious bookmark user.
I don’t think I have
I don’t think I’ve skipped a whole chapter but I have definitely skim read some more info dumpy sections of books.
I may have at some point, probably back when I was a teenager. Now however I am proud of the books I enjoy to read and it doesn’t really both me if others don’t. Everyone’s different.
Being a fan of books and Taylor Swift I knew when I saw this tag I wanted to give it a go. So I wasn’t actually tagged to do it, but that hasn’t stopped me before.
‘Staying Alive in Year 5’ by John Marsden was a book I remember absolutely loving when I was younger.
Recently I found a second hand copy at a book stall at school and picked it up however I actually cannot remember anything that happened!
I honestly don’t think I have a worst book I’ve read this summer, I really enjoyed all the books I’ve read.
I absolutely love Strange and Sarai even though their relationship is definitely complicated I think it is still perfect even though it is tinged with a little sadness.
I know that Celaena Sardothian from the Throne of Glass series is the go to answer to this question but when it comes to a fantasy character she is honestly the most badass of the lot. I also find Daisy Jones from Daisy Jones and The Six a pretty badass character especially in the context of a contemporary read.
Again I couldn’t just pick one so I went with a fantasy and a contemporary. Sophie and Keefee in ‘The Keeper of Lost Cities’ by Shannon Messenger have has some great character development from the first book to the fifth book and I am here for it.
I also recently read ‘The Seven Husbands of Everlyn Hugo’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I definitely found the Everlyn was presented at the beginning of the book was different to the one we ended with.
I feel like it always changes but currently it is Strange from Strange the Dreamer!
The one that comes to mind instantly is ‘The Woman in White’ by Wilkie Collins.
Honestly this book caused the most stress as a high school set book because our teacher was obsessed with it and we all just got super confused about it all.
I think I’d want to give it another chance now that I’m older.
I thought the ending of Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins was a happy one.
just all the good vibe feels.
I’m sticking with the contemporary and fantasy options when answering these tag questions. I don’t think there will come a time where I don’t absolutely love Harry Potter and wish Hogwarts and Diagon Ally and Hogsmede and The Borrow were real. When it comes to places that are real I love Alaska. I don’t live anywhere near Alaska (I live in Australia) but I love Alaska so that is definitely a setting that I won’t even forget.
I read ‘Lodestar’ by Shannon Messenger the fifth book in the Keeper of Lost Cities series recently and to say I was a hot mess at the end is an absolute understatement!
I know I’ve already used ‘The Simple Wild’ by K.A. Tucker for an answer but in the story we follow Calla as she goes back to Alaska to spend time with her estranged father who is an Alaskan bush pilot. Honestly without the amazing setting this story would be completely different.
I could say so many books that I’ve already mentioned but I thought I’d answer this with a different book! As with Lodestar by Shannon Messenger, Neverseen by Shannon Messenger had be balling!
Can you tell I enjoyed this book? Can you also tell that I am new to the Adult Romance scene so haven’t read that many yet? Honestly I enjoyed how the sexy scenes were written and it didn’t over power the overall plot of the story.
Going with an absolute obvious answer for this question, Hearstoppers: Volume 2 by Alice Oseman.
I couldn’t really think of another book to choose for this one aside from ‘The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Honestly I love so many books so picking an all time favourite is impossible, however the two that I reread the most are ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ by J.K. Rowling and ‘Yes Please’ by Amy Poehler.
I honestly drew a blank with this question and could only think of Harry and Ginny and Ron and Hermione from the Harry Potter series.
‘Nimona’ by Noelle Stevenson is definitely a story with a positive message about friendship and personal growth and belief.
I was tagged by the wondering Jenna over at Bookmark Your Thoughts to do this tag and I am so excited to participate! It may be Spring down in Australia but Autumn is my favourite time of the year so I love to relive it whenever I can.
I feel like I have so many! my favourite meals that make me feel cozy and comfortable are my dad’s spaghetti bolognase as well as a Greek dish my partner introduced me too called Avgolemono which is a super delicious soup.
Writing my blog for sure as well as working on my Reading Journal. I also really enjoy playing the Sims 4 if you could call that creative.
Oh… that’s a tough one. I really don’t think there are any but mostly because I really struggle with change.
umm.. pumpkin Spice Lattes? honestly no one likes them like I do, at least no one I know.
Book wise, I’d say Twilight (will always have a place in my heart) and probably the fact that I read a lot of YA as well.
Umm my books obviously, as well as cuddling any fury friends!
I’m not a huge fan of being scared (I’m a huge chicken) so I definitely don’t have a favourite scary movie or book
I’m definitely a chocolate girl, closely followed by french fries or again my Dad’s spaghetti bolognase.
I’d say my Timberlands. They usually get the most wear in the Autumn months.
burns like in a good way? That’s how I’m going to take it so Harry Potter, that series always makes me feel so happy!
hmm.. I can’t really think of one. Maybe ‘The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I definitely didn’t expect it to take the turn that it did, or to explore such important historical issues.
I tag anyone who wants to celebrate autumn and have fun doing a tag!
