Totally Should’ve Book Tag!!

Hello everyone!! It’s finally Friday!! In honor of it being Friday, I decided to do a book tag. Nobody officially tagged me to do this. I actually found it by looking at the “book tag” tag in the Reader. This tag seems to be answering “totally should’ve” questions with a  book that fits it best. Without further ado, let’s begin!

Totally Should've

1) Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell needs a sequel!! Many can argue that Carry On is the sequel. In some ways it is, in others it isn’t. Fangirl needs a sequel that’s about Levi and Cath. I honestly need more of their adorable relationship. The Fanfic was interesting and pretty adorable but I only enjoyed it shaped around the romance of Levi and Cath. Not by it self.

2) Totally Should’ve Had a Spin-Off Series.

This question is way too hard! There are so many series’ that need a spin-off.

3)An Author Who Should Totally Write More Books.

There are so many authors that fit this!! I’m going to say J.K. Rowling. Her writing is absolutely amazing. Look at the popularity of Harry Potter! Nothing could ever be better than Harry Potter but she should still write more!

4) A Character Who Totally Should’ve Ended Up With Someone Else.

I definitely love Harry and Ginny but I feel like Harry and Chu could’ve been pretty adorable too. Just my opinion.

5) Totally Should’ve Ended Differently.

The Hunger Games series. Mockingjay just ended so abruptly. It definitely needed more of a gradual ending than a “And then they lived happily ever after”

6)Totally Should’ve Had a Movie Franchise.

All the books that I can think of already have their own movies.

7)Totally Should’ve Had a TV Show.

I feel like the Hunger Games or Harry Potter would make pretty good TV shows. There would definitely be lots of cliffhangers/suspense.

8)Totally Should’ve Had Only One POV

I don’t know… I absolutely love reading different views.

9) Totally Should’ve Had a Cover Change.

This isn’t the Paper Towns book I can buy but this is absolutely terrible. It definitely needs a cover change.

10)Totally Should’ve Kept the Original Cover.

The Paper Towns cover above is one of them. Why would someone put that as a cover of a pretty good book?!

11) Totally Should’ve Stopped At Book One

I haven’t finished the Divergent series but have heard how the last book really messed the series up. Maybe the Divergent series should’ve stopped at book 1 or 2 so the series wasn’t ruined. Just a thought…


Since this tag hasn’t been done by very many people, I’m actually going to tag some bloggers.

@Aubrey’s Book Nook

@Drizzle and Hurricane Books

@The Writing Hufflepuff

@J Bookish

@Josies Book Corner

@My Tiny Obsessions

@Analee @ Book Snacks

@CK’s Reading Corner

@Paige @ Page by Paige

@The Girl Who Read Too Much

And.. Anyone else who wants to participate!!


Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more great book tags!

This Or That Book Tag!!

Hey everyone! I haven’t done a book tag in so long. This book tag has been floating around for a while and I decided to finally do it. It’s called the This Or That Book Tag. I wasn’t officially tagged by anyone so thank you to everyone who has done the tag. I love seeing your answers 🙂

This


 

The Rules:

  1. Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @Tea and Paperbacks).
  2. Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  3. Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
  4. Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!

 

One: Read on the Couch or On the Bed?

Bed without a doubt! I always read on my bed. My room is always so quiet and cut off from the rest of the house. I can’t read if it’s too loud. Overall, I love my bed XD

Two: Male Main Character or Female Main Character?

I normally read books with female main characters so I’ll choose that. There can definitely be some good male characters too. I would choose both but I have to choose one or the other.. so female. It all comes down to how well the book is written.

 

Three: Sweet Snacks or Salty Snacks?

I’m going to cheat and say neither. I don’t really eat while I read. If I had to choose I would choose sweet.

Four:Trilogies or Quartets?

I don’t really have a preference.

Five: First Person Point of View or Third Person Point of View?

First person POV all the way!!

 

Six: Reading at Night or In The Morning?

Whenever I can! If I had to choose reading at night. That’s when I do most of my reading.

Seven: Libraries or Book Stores?

I love them both but I’m going to say Libraries. You can read any book you want for free! Well it’s free until it’s overdue. When  I go to bookstores, I can’t seem to find what I want. If I can, it’s way too expensive.

Eight: Books that Make You Laugh Or Cry?

It’s actually pretty hard to make me cry while reading. I’m going to say make me laugh since that’s easier to do XD

Nine: Black Book Covers Or White Book Covers?

As long as they are beautiful who cares?

Ten: Character Driven or Plot Driven Stories?

I love both but I’m going to have to say character.


This was such a fun book tag! I have no idea who has and hasn’t done this tag so I tag EVERYONE!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags!

The Book Love Tag

 

Hey everyone! I haven’t done a tag in such a long time!! Today I have decided to do The Book Love Tag. I was unofficially/officially tagged by My Tiny Obsessions. You should definitely check out her bookish and obsession blog! I have a lot of love for all things bookish. This should be good!

The Blook Love Tag

Without further ado, here we go!


 

1) Favorite Book Couple.

This is so hard!! I’ll just say one of them: Levi and Cath from Fangirl. The way Levi loves Cath through everything is so sweet! If you haven’t read Fangirl yet.. what are you waiting for?!

2) Your Top 3 Book Boy/Girlfriends

This is going to be tough..

1)Harry and Ginny

2)Katniss and Peeta

3) Ron and Hermione

@Pinterest

3) Imagine Your Favorite Book Couple. Who Would Propose, and How? (If there’s already been a proposal: Who Would Be More Into Organizing the Wedding? *Spoilers*

I’m going to pick Harry and Ginny for this one. In the Deathly Hallows, in the nineteen years later part, they are married. In the book there was no proposal so I’ll describe that 🙂

Harry would be the one to propose. He would probably propose at the end of their time at Hogwarts after the big battle with Voldemort and everyone is safe. Harry would probably do it on the Quidditch field. It would be special and romantic.

@nathaniemmett.tumbler.com

4) Unpopular Opinions Time! Name a Popular Couple You Can’t Stand.

I can’t stand Bella and Edward from Twilight. The funny thing is that I haven’t read any of the twilight books.

5) What’s Your Favorite and Least Favorite Romance Trope.

I had to look up the meaning of “Romance Trope” and still have no answer.

6) Do You Ship Non-Canon Couples Often? Name Some If You Do.

I had to look up “Non-Canon Couples” I seriously need to learn these XD I don’t read fanfiction so once again, I have no answer.

7)Your Opinion On Love Triangles. Go!

I have no problem with Love Triangles as long as they are done right. Most love triangles drive me nuts though. I guess I’m on the fence with this one!

8) Favorite and Least Favorite Love Triangle.

I’m enjoying Hermia, Lysander and Demetrius in the Midsummer Night’s Dream. We are reading that in school and it’s seriously messed up. It’s more like a love square with Helena.  I don’t like the partial love triangle in Fangirl. It’s between Cath, Levi and Nick.

@Pinterest  

9) Sometimes Romance Just Isn’t The Way To Go. Favorite Friendship?

This one is very tough!! I’m going to say.. Leah and Nick from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I can’t gush enough about how much I love their friendship and how the book is going.

10. What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?

This question is too hard to answer…

11. Imagine Your Favorite Book Couple Again. Who’s Most Excited About Valentine’s Day (Either Ironically or Genuinely)

This is definitely a tough one. I’m going to say Harry. He seems like he would take every chance he could to show Ginny how much he loves her.

 

 

Oh my gosh, I loved this tag so much! That’s why I tag EVERYONE who wants to participate 🙂

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book tags!

The Friends Book Tag!

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday and that means back to school tomorrow. I haven’t done a book tag or any tag in forever! I stumbled across The Friends Book Tag on My Tiny Obsessions. You should definitely check out her blog!


The One Where Eddie Won’t Go-A Character I Wish Would Just Go Away:

The obvious answer would be Lord Voldemort. I’m going to say Nick from Fangirl. I just didn’t end up liking him and he just got in the way of Levi and Cath.

The One Where Ross and Rachel Take A Break-Favorite Break Up Scene:

I don’t ever love break up scenes but the one that comes to mind is Harry and Cho Chung’s comes to mind. It was so sad and short.

The One With All The Kissing-A Book With Lots of Kissing:

One word: Dumplin’

The Last One- Favorite Series Finale:

I never enjoy finale’s but I’m going to say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow. The Epilogue really got me.

The One With A Blackout- A Scene I’d Like To Forget:

Nothing comes to mind… I’ve read way too many books

 

 

The One Where Chandler Can’t Cry- A Book That Did Not Make You As Emotional As Others:

I am not very emotional when reading books so I’ll just say… MockingJay.

The One Where Joey Doesn’t Share Food-A Book You Won’t Ever Lend:

ALL OF THEM! Nobody ever wants my books anyway XD

The One With The Thumb-A Recent Read You Would Give Two Thumbs Up To:

I’m going to have to say Steering Towards Normal by Rebecca Petruck.

The One With The Ick Factor- A Book With A Pet Peeve:

Again, I’m going to have to say Dumplin’. The romance was way too back and forth for me.

The One With The Lesbian Wedding- Favorite LGBTQ Book Couple:

I honestly need to read more LGBTQ books. I’m looking forward to Simon and Baz in Carry On though.


 

I tag: EVERYONE who wants to participate. It’s definitely a fun tag 🙂

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags!

`Tis the Season Book Tag!

Hey everyone!! Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a great day whether you celebrate Christmas or not 😀 Today I am doing the ‘Tis the Season Tag! A special thank you to everyone who have tagged me unofficially for this tag.

1) Do you have a favorite Winter read?

I don’t do any special holiday reading so any book is good for me

Half Blinking Harry XD

2) Find a book with blue on the cover!

This book’s cover is almost entirely blue!

3)Find a book you’d use as the star on a Christmas Tree.

I’ve never read this book but it’s yellow like most traditional stars and has a very appealing cover 🙂

4) Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a Winter vacation!

Everyone seems to be giving this answer, but I’m going to say Hogsmeade. It’d be really cool to be able to drink a butter beer and see everything covered in snow.

5) Pick one fictional character you’d take on your Winter Vacation!

I’m going to have to say Dumbledore 😀

6) Name one book on your wish list this year!

Only one book? That’s hard. I’m going to say Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone illustrated edition. I didn’t actually ask for it so I don’t think I’ll be getting it. XD

7) Favorite Holiday Drink, Treat, & Movie?

My favorite drink is the peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks!

My favorite treat is all the delicious cookies my grandma makes every year.

Not actual picture of cookies 🙂

My favorite movie… that’s tough. One of my favorites is Frosty the Snowman.


That’s the ‘Tis the Season Tag! I tag EVERYONE who wishes to participate. Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have an amazing day 😀

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Christmas tags 🙂
