Bookshelf Tag

I was nominated for a bookshelf tag by Nevillegirl at Musings From Neville’s Navel! Thanks, Nevillegirl!

                                                                               Rules

Answer the following questions about books on your blog and then tag five other bloggers. You can answer the questions any way you want, whether it’s on your blog, in a video, or a combination of the two. Then remember to let whoever tagged you know when your post is up so they can read it.

Now, the questions!

1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know that it’ll make you cry?

Suzanne Collins’ Gregor the Overlander series. I’ve heard they’re really good but sad. 

2. Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre.

C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia introduced me to fantasy, and to my everlasting love-fantasy is my absolute favourite genre!

3. Find a book that you want to reread.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I loved it, but I can barely remember anything. 

4. Is there a book series you read but wish that you hadn’t?

5. If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save?

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. I love that book with a passion, and it’s the prettiest book I own!

6. Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It’s the first book of hers I read, and I loved the movie even before I read the book, and then I loved the book. 

7. Find a book that has inspired you the most.

Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted probably inspired me to write the most.

8. Do you have any autographed books?

Sadly, no. Sigh…

9. Find the book that you have owned the longest. 

Probably Catundra or one of Doctor Seuss’ books.

10. Is there a book by an author that you never imagined you would read or enjoy?

I’m sorry, I have no idea! Oops…

The Sunshine Award

the-sunshine-award

Hello! I was nominated for the Sunshine Award by Nevillegirl.

I’ll start out with five facts about me!

1. I have a whole spectrum of favourite colours-everything from scarlet to midnight blue to emerald green to grey.

2. I do not, however, like just about any pink or orange colours, especially pastel pink.

3. One of my favourite quotes is 

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” -Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

4. The last thing I ate was an apple.

5. I am currently suffering from allergies/a cold.

Here are the questions I’m answering-

What book will you read next?

Probably Pretties by Scott Westerfield. I recently finished Uglies, and am excited to read the sequel! Hopefully I can get to the library soon.

Do your parents, siblings, or any other relatives read your blog? What do they think of it?

I keep forgetting to give my dad my blog URL; I better do that soon. I have no idea what he’ll think of it. 

What is the funniest thing you’ve seen or heard recently?

…I’m sorry, I really have no idea. Oops!

If you could choose, right now, to be either ten years younger or ten years older than you currently are, which option would you pick?

Probably ten years older. I’d be 22, probably through with college(hopefully with all the information stored in my brain, but none of the work), and maybe even with a novel or two published! 

What is your quest?

To acquire inspiration and change the world through my writing.

My questions:

1. What is your absolute favourite short story?

2. Look to your left. What is your favourite object to the left, and is there a story behind it?

3. What’s your IQ? (if you know)

4. Favourite poem?

5. ‘If’ you had a time machine, what would it look like and what would you call it?
