“In my mind, I am this awesome, adventurous badass. But in reality I am just a bookworm that really likes wine.” – SL Jennings
I like big books and I cannot lie.
So when I found this little book tag I had to do it.
The books made the little bookworm do it.
Favourite Childhood Book
Where could I even start? There are children’s books and novels for kids.. So..
Picture Books – Something From Nothing, Guess How Much I Love You, The Giving Tree, Stellaluna, Miss Nelson Is Missing, The Polar Express..
Novels – Anne of Green Gables, Tales Of The 4th Grade Nothing (plus the rest of the series), Frecklejuice (yes, I LOVED Judy Blume), Ramona The Brave (And the whole series), Sideways Stories of Wayside School,
Least favourite book by favourite author
I don’t really have a favourite author. The one author I have read the most would be Jodi Picoult, the one book I despised what “Harvesting The Heart”
One I always give as a gift
The Help – Katheryn Stockett
Suzanne’s Diary For Nicholas – James Patterson
The Chirstmas Shoes – Donna VanLiere
Have more than one copy
Two Kisses For Maddy – Matt Logelin
Film or TV tie in
Neither. If I read and loved the book I am far too critical and almost have to hate the movie/show. It is always ruined and never gives the book justice. In addition, I hate when people RAVE about the movie/show and are ignorant to the fact it was even a book and have no desire to read the book or even care about it. BUT if I had to pick, I would say a 13 episode series. And yes, I have been called a book snob.
Series you hate
I hate this question, I feel like people are going to easily attack me and plan my death.
Pretend to have read it
Sound and Fury – William Faulkner. I attempted to read it at least 15 times and cannot get into it.
Makes me laugh
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Mindy Kaling
Favourite fictional father
Is Atticus Finch too cliche?
Can’t believe more people haven’t read
Based on its fan following, I would have to say “The Fault In Our Stars”
Bought on recommendation
Consequences Series by Aleatha Romig – LOVED.
Made to read at school and loved it
The Great Gatsby – Grade 11 U English
Hooked me into reading
See all the children’s books I listed. I always loved books, but the novels which really stuck out in my head from my childhood were Judy Blume’s Fudge series, Jean Little’s “Different Dragons”, and Patrick Skene’s “The Chocolate Touch”
Too many to name. I don’t force myself to read a book I hate. If I start to think about food, or weekend plans while reading a book, or if I ‘read’ 4 chapters and have no idea what happened, I will stop reading it.
Want to be one of the characters
Would save if my house burned down
My Kindle. Aside from a few books which I still have in print, everything is on my Kindle.
Fun fact, I RARELY will read a book twice. I hate rereading something I already read. There is no surprise, the initial “love” is gone. There may only be a handful of books I have ever reread.
