Day and Night Tag

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?

I tend to read whenever I have a spare moment, so neither and both.

A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?

Yes, Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbotsky.  This is something that really made me think about anxiety and being a teenager in general.

Y: YA or not?

YA all day everyday. If it’s not YA I probably haven’t read it, if it is I probably have.

A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?

I wish some of the characters were real, but I’m not stupid enough to believe any of them are real… I’m not insane…

N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?

I am actually the kind of person who will lend my books out to anyone who I class as friend or family. However, I think I want to start a hardcover collection, so no longer! And my signed copy of City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare is never leaving my place of residence.

D: Do you ever smell your books?

Yes, all the time. Don’t judge me…

N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?

NEGATIVE!

I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?

My paperbacks look like trash. Like I said, I’m starting to buy more and more hardcovers.

G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?

I actually only own 49 books, which is not a lot compared to some other bloggers and booktubers I’ve seen. I want more books!

H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?

No, never. My friends have… (I have no idea how…)

T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?

Ha! Working out, don’t be ridiculous. Also, I’m really bad at multi-tasking

The Taylor Swift Book Tag

           taylor

This tag is dedicated to Taylor swift and her music. In this tag I will take different Taylor swift songs, relate them to different books and say why I have done so. So, lets begin with….

1.

Song: We Are Never Getting Back Together

Book/ Series: ‘Divergent’ by Veronica Roth

divergent

For this song, I had to choose a series that I thought I loved when  I started it, but then decide that I’m going to leave it. This is exactly what I did with the ‘Divergent’ series by Veronica Roth. In fact, I didn’t even finish ‘Insurgent’!

2.

Song: Red

Book: ‘Messenger of Fear’ by Michael Grant

messoffear

For this son, I had to simply choose a book with a red cover. This book is only a few books down my TBR pile, so you will get a review of it soon hopefully. I decided that I had to choose this book, because it is basically completely red and caught my eye immediately.

3.

Song: Best Day

Book: ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ by J.K. Rowling

harryp1

For this song, I had to pick a book that made me feel nostalgic. What better book than one of the first full length books I ever read. The entire series will forever have a special place in my book-loving heart.

4.

Song: Love Story

Book: ‘City of Ashes’ by Cassandra Clare

coglass

For this song, I had to choose  book that contained forbidden love. The love in the ‘Mortal Instruments’, particularly within the first three books, is rightly forbidden. Clace forever!!

5.

Song: I Knew You Were Trouble

Book: ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’ by Sarah J. Maas

thorns

For this song, I had to choose a character from a book that is the bad guy, but I love them anyway. For this I had to choose Rhysand from ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’ by Sarah J. Maas. He comes a cross so wvil, but he does it s charmingly that it is hard not to like him at least a little!

6.

Song: Everything Has Changed

Book: ‘We Were Liars’ by  E. Lockhart

wewereliars

For this song, I had to choose a character that underwent extensive character development. For this I chose Cadence Sinclair Eastman from ‘We Were Liars’ by E. Lockhart. I read this book very recently and loved it. Cadence realised a lot about herself in this book, and I mean a lot.

6.

Song: You Belong With Me

Book: ‘All of the Above’ by James Dawson

aotaa

For this song, I had to choose a book release that I was most anticipating. For this I chose ‘All of the Above’ by James Dawson which is to be released at the end of this year. I am so excited for this book!!

8.

Song: Forever and Always

Book: ‘Eleanor and Park’ by Rainbow Rowell

eap

For this song, I basically had to decide on my book OTP. Obviously I had to choose Eleanor and Park!!

9.

Song: Come Back, Be Here

Book: ‘Remix’ by Non Pratt

remix

For this song, I had to choose a book which I was not willing to lend out to anyone. I am not ever going to lend out my copy of ‘Remix’ by Non Pratt, just because she signed it for me at this year’s YALC event.

10.

Song: Teardrops On My Guitar

Book: ‘Undone’ by Cat Clarke

undone

For this song, I had to choose a book that made me cry. I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!!


I hope you enjoyed this tag and thanks for reading!!

Creatures of the Night – Book Tag #1

The Creatures of the Night Book Tag was created by the BookTuber Katytastic. In this tag you have to name a supernatural creature and say what your favourite book is that includes that creature. Katytastic’s video is down below:

1.

Creature: Ghost/Ghoul

Book: ‘The Diviners’ by Libba Bray

The-Diviners-final

The main ghost in ‘The Diviners’ is called ‘Naughty John Hobbes’. John commits increasingly gruesome murders as part of a sacrificial cult offering.I read this book at night time and I must say that a ghost has never chilled me more than Naughty John Hobbes. He even has a creepy theme song!

2.

Creature: Vampire

Book: ‘The Coldest Girl in Coldtown’ by Holly Black

coldgirl

Unlike ‘The Diviners’, I cannot pick out a singular vampire from ‘The Coldest Girl in Coldtown’ to be my favourite. Instead, I think the vampire inclusive world that Holly Black has managed to create is one of my favourite worlds ever. Never has being a vampire looked so glamorous, mainly due to the media influences in the book; something that reflects with our own world. It also has bloodthirsty bloggers!

3.

Creature: Zombie

Books: ‘The Enemy’ series by Charlie Higson.

enemy

‘The Enemy’ series by Charlie Higson is about the cliché world of a zombie apocalypse, but is unique in its own right. In this world the kids aren’t affected by the disease and are left to rule the world  and fight off cannibalistic adults. Now, I haven’t read many other zombie books, but I’m pretty sure this is one of the best anyway…

4.

Creature: Werewolf

Books: ‘The Harry Potter’ series by J.K. Rowling

azkaban

How is it possible to not choose Remus Lupin as your favourite werewolf character? Not only are the Harry Potter books the best books ever, but Lupin as a character has so many different layers. In the third book we see him as a teacher and mentor to Harry. Toward the end of the series, we see him as a warrior against the Dark Lord. And, my personal favourite, we see him in love with Tonks…

5.

Creature: Faerie

Book: ‘A Court of Thrones of Roses’ by Sarah J Maas

thorns

‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’ shows Faeries in a different light to that of many other fantasy books. They are normally fierce, cruel and very, very manipulative. Some of the characters are exactly like this, but some like Lucien and Tamlin aren’t as cold-hearted as the folklore says they should be. Speaking of which, the Faerie folklore is the most intricate and detailed of the ones I’ve looked at.

6.

Creature: Angel

Books: The Hush Hush’ sequence by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Hush,hush

Patch is the main angel character in the ‘Hush Hush’ sequence and I find his character to be rather ironic. This is mainly due to the fact that he is devilishly and at times annoyingly sexy and charming. I dare you to read the books and not fall at least a little in love with Patch. It is quite possible Becca Fitzpatrick has created one of the most desirable book characters ever. Well done you…

7.

Creature: Demons

Books: ‘The Mortal Instruments’ series by Cassandra Clare.

capnova

Demons in the world of Shadowhunters go from disgusting and gooey to vindictive and powerful. The are truly vile either way, but I have a lot to thank them for. If they weren’t attacking things, then there would be no need for incredibly handsome Shadowhunters to run around in tight leather outfits… Ahem… And, if Magnus’ father hadn’t impregnated his mother under false pretences, we wouldn’t have Magnus! Of course his mother wouldn’t have killed herself, but then we wouldn’t have had #MALEC. I guess one man’s loss is another man’s gain.

So that is it for this book tag, I hope that if you read it, you enjoyed it.
