img_2223

Hello all! I’m trying something new today. Instead of a book tag I’m going to take a Buzzfeed quiz. This one is “Which Classic Female Author Are You?” Let’s take a look at how my answers pan out, shall we…

What are you writing with?

Ink Pens

Typewriter

Laptop

Pencils

Quill Pens

Gel Pens

I find it much easier to write pen to paper and don’t mind crossing things out if needed. Continue reading

Creatures of the Night Book Tag

image

When searching for book tags I discovered this Creatures of the Night Tag on Dreamland Book Blog. It was originally created by Katytastic on Youtube and I thought October was the perfect time for this one. It’s simple! Just pick your favorite book with each of these different creatures of the night. Let’s get started!

In 1972, a 16-year-old American living in Amsterdam finds a mysterious book in her diplomat father’s library. The book is ancient, blank except for a sinister woodcut of a dragon and the word “Drakulya,” but it’s the letters tucked inside, dated 1930 and addressed to “My dear and unfortunate successor,” that really pique her curiosity.

Her widowed father, Paul, reluctantly provides pieces of a chilling story; it seems this ominous little book has a way of forcing itself on its owners, with terrifying results. Paul’s former adviser at Oxford, Professor Rossi, became obsessed with researching Dracula and was convinced that he remained alive. When Rossi disappeared, Paul continued his quest with the help of another scholar, Helen, who had her own reasons for seeking the truth. As Paul relates these stories to his daughter, she secretly begins her own research.

Pokemon Go Book Tag

PokemonGoBookTag

Disclaimer: Pokemon Go is owned by Niantic and Nintendo. All images were created by Read at Midnight.

With the release of Pokemon Go my deep love for these creatures has returned and I cannot get enough of playing this game. I absolutely adored the original anime show and can remember seeing the first movie with my dad and brothers at the old theater in town that’s now closed down. Aentee of Read at Midnight created this tag to bring together two of the most wonderful passions, books and Pokemon, and I’m excited to share my answers with everyone. Let’s get started!


pokemon-tag-01starters

If would have to be picture books when I was really young. Those very first moments when books inspired me. Definitely Madeline, Where the Wild Things Are, and Goodnight Moon to name a few.

pokemon-tag02pikachu

Harry Potter all the way people!!!! This firmly cemented my addiction to books and fandom. My love for it will never fade and I will reread these till the end of my days.

pokemon-tag-03-zubat

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn comes to mind. It was so hyped when it released and then when the movie came out. I just have no desire to read it now, the mystery and intrigue has been lost.

pokemon-tag-04-ditto

I went through a phase where I read a lot of dystopian series all around the same time. The Hunger Games, Divergent, Wither, Legend, etc. It didn’t deter my love for any of them though.

pokemon-tag-05-snorlax

Mistborn has currently been checked out on my library card for months now and this is the second time I’ve tried to start it. It’s such a commitment and of course it’s a series. It will haunt me from my ottoman until I pick it up though.

pokemon-tag06-gengar

I try to avoid scary books at all costs but I have on occasion branched out. The creepy crawly collection, Slasher Girls and Monster Boys, definitely did the trick and it was hard to turn off the lights.

pokemon-tag07-nidokingqueen

How to choose? I have so many from the original OTP, Ron and Hermione, when I discovered shipping to pretty much any pairing Leigh Bardugo creates. My current obsession is Feyre and Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury. Love! Love! Love!

pokemon-tag08-rapidash

I blew through All the Feels by Danika Stone in just one night. The narrative moved so quickly and I absolutely loved it!

pokemon-tag09-eevee

Eevees are the cutest thing ever! I will never get bored of them especially since they evolve into so many variations. Same goes for Cassandra Clare books! Just keep em coming. I will never be tired of books set in the Shadowhunter world and it doesn’t look like I need to worry about them going away anytime soon.

pokemon-tag14-magikarp

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix but I absolutely fell in love with this world and the characters. From Sabriel and Touchstone to Lirael and Sam, now I just crave returning to these lands.

pokemon-tag12-legendary

This is such a hard one. I guess I’ll say Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas even though I may actually never read them. I have a two sided relationship with her writing and I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews.

pokemon-tag15mew-mewtwo

I will forever drool over the Folio Society editions of every single book I love. They are just so beautiful, I want to pet them. Unfortunately they cost a fortune.

pokemon-tag10-egg

I’m super excited for Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill to come out this winter. I’ve heard amazing things so far and it definitely screams “must read” for me. Plus the cover is gorgeous!!!  If only my poke-eggs would hatch into ones I chose…

pokemon-tag11-lure-module

Gosh I have quite a few but most importantly Leigh Bardugo and J. K. Rowling, my queens. I will buy anything and everything they ever release.

pokemon-tag13-server-down

For all the A Song of Ice and Fire fans out there, I am with you and feel your pain. When will Winds of Winter come out? Honestly I’m thinking never at this point. Most aggravating of all is the fact that the show has surpassed the books. Grrrr!


This was so much fun! Thanks to Aentee for creating this amazing tag and excellent graphics. I hope you enjoyed my answers and feel free to take on this tag too! Are you playing Pokemon Go? Has it taken over your life? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!

The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag

image

Surprisingly I don’t think I’ve mentioned my deep love for the A Song of Ice and Fire series on my blog before. It could be the never ending wait for Winds of Winter or the fact that I stopped watching the TV show after Season 4, but George R. R. Martin created a vast, entertaining world with a ridiculous amount of characters and I do love them so.

Now here we have The Ultimate Game of Thrones Tag created by Orang-utan Librarian. I was tagged by the lovely Eve Messenger to participate in this one and I’m super excited to share the Game of Thrones and book love with everyone today.

Rules:

  1. Mention the creator Orang-utan Librarian
  2. Answer all the questions
  3. Tag people and keep it going!

House Greyjoy ~ “We Do Not Sow”

A Book I Will Not Be Willing To Invest In

This one is a pretty easy answer for me. There’s no way in hell I’ll ever be picking up the Fifty Shades of Grey series.

The Halsey Book Tag

Today I’m bringing you The Halsey Book Tag originally created by the girls over at Paper Riot! I love love love Halsey’s music. It has such a powerful, ethereal quality to it and I can listen to it on repeat without getting bored. Now let’s get to those song tracks and answers!

Castle: Favorite Queen

Let’s see… Queen Kelsea Raleigh from The Queen of the Tearling. She gets thrust into power at a young age and has to piece her country back together again with her life being threatened from all sides.

Hold Me Down: A Series You Just Can’t Seem To Quit, No Matter How Hard You Try

Why would I ever want to quit a series? I guess I’ll go with Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book but still want to try the rest of the series. Problem is I started Rebel Spring but haven’t got back into it.

New Americana: Fictional Friend Group You’d Want To Be Your Fight The Apocalypse Squad

Without a doubt my Six of Crows crew! Widely versatile and willing to do what it takes to survive, I’m sure they’re the best for the job.

Hamilton Book Tag

Well if you haven’t heard of Hamilton yet I suggest using the magic of the internet to immerse yourself in this phenomenal musical immediately. I mean, it is mind blowingly good! I’m dying to see it on stage so I will be waiting impatiently for a tour. In honor of my deep love for Lin Manuel Miranda’s creation, check out my answers to this awesome book tag inspired by the songs. Let’s all thank Maureen Keavey over on BookTube for creating these epic questions!

The Room Where It Happens: Book World You Would Put Yourself In

I always come back to the Shadowhunter world with its angels and demons, warlocks and fae, werewolves and vampires. Cassandra Clare has created such a vast universe and I love immersing myself in it.
