Day 21: July 4th I am just going to come…
Weekly Blog Post: Tag It Thursday
I found the Ultimate Book Tag on another blog and thought it would be a lot of fun. Here are my answers for this week’s Tag It Thursday-the Ultimate Book Tag!
Do you get sick while reading in the car?
No, I don’t usually get sick in the car. I’ve always been one to read in the car, but I do usually get tired and fall asleep.
Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
Kwame Alexander has a writing style that I’ve not seen before nor could I ever imitate. I love his rhythm and descriptions! You cannot help but read his stories out loud.
Harry Potter or Hunger Games? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
Harry Potter because
Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books)?
I do not, I usually carry my Kindle. If I carried a book bag, it would be ridiculously heavy. I did just get a book bag from my local library from their summer reading program, and I have started reading more physical books, so maybe I will start carrying one! If I did, I would carry my journal with me as well to keep my notes, post it notes to mark favorite passages, and bookmarks. The typical reading necessities.
Do you smell your books?
Of course I do! Who doesn’t? Haha. I love the smell of new books and magazines the most, but old books have their unique smell as well.
Books with or without little illustrations?
It depends on the book. I love the illustrations that are not overdone and add to the character of the book. Harry Potter comes to mind with the stars and chapter illustrations.
What book did you love while reading, but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
The Twilight Series.
What is the thickest book on your shelf?
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
I have a lot of nonfiction and picture books, but the shortest chapter book is probably The Little Prince.
When did you get into reading?
I have been a reader for as long as I can remember. I do know I remember reading Super Fudge and Julie B Jones books in lower elementary. My greatest reading memory is my Me-Me (grandmother) taking me to the library every week in the summer when I lived with her. I would check out ten or more books at a time and we would read on the couch together. She always checked out Westerns, I remember checking out the Left Behind series (the kids version).
What is your favorite classic book?
I have a tie between Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice. Two very different love stories with two very different styles of writing.
In school, what was your best subject?
I really do not remember a “best” subject, but I do know I loved History. I found it easy to memorize dates and I loved learning about the past. I did graduate college with a History degree as well.
If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?
I am a people pleaser, so I would keep the book and read it. However, I would tell my friend my honest opinion. I wish my friends would buy me books…haha.
What is your favorite word?
I had to look up a “book” word and my favorite that I found was Bibliophagist which means “devourer of books.” Fitting, right?
Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
Definitely a cross between a nerd and a dork!
Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Vampires. I have always enjoyed vampire stories and think they are pretty darn cool.
Shapeshifters or magical beasts?
Magical beasts. Hippogriffs and dragons are pretty much the coolest animals out there.
And finally, action books or realistic fiction?
Action books! I love to be on the edge of my seat while reading.
I hope you enjoyed my Ultimate Book Tag! If you choose to write one, please comment and I would love to visit your blog.
