The Book Life Tag!

 

Hey everyone! Let’s celebrate the return of my book blog posts with a bookish tag! I randomly found this on Books & Other Pursuits. They did this tag in April so it was a while ago but that’s okay. They’re not the creator of this so I can’t give them complete credit though. The point of this tag is to answer questions with places or characters from books. It’s pretty short and simple. Let’s get started!


Who Would Your Parents Be?

This is a pretty basic answer but I’m going to say Molly and Arthur Weasley. They seem like they would be the best parents in the world (besides my own of course). Plus they’re gingers like me so that’s a plus.

Who Would Be Your Sister?

Definitely Blue Sargent from the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. I just finished the fourth book The Raven King and I loved it! I’m absolutely in love with the series. Blue would definitely have to be my sister because she’s like me because she’s more of a follower. She’s also just a great person overall.

Who Would Be Your Brother?

Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell definitely. He would be such a kind and humorous brother. He also works at Starbucks which of course would have its benefits.

Who Would Be Your Pet?

This is going to be so repetitive but I’m going to say Chainsaw from the Raven Cycle series. He is such a loyal raven to Ronan and would definitely be there no matter what.

Where Would You Live?

Green Gables from the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. The land is filled with so many trees and lots of places to roam. The actual house would be a wonderful place to explore and relax in.

This is the house that was owned by relatives of Montgomery. It’s the Green Gables house that the house in the Anne series is apparently based off of.


Where Would You Go To School?

Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series of course!

Who Would Be Your Best Friend? 

Liesel from the Book Thief by Markus Zusak. She’s just as into books as I am, she’s a badass and doesn’t always follow the rules. Liesel would be a great friend.

Who Would Be Your Significant Other? *SPOILER?*

This is a tough one.. I’m going to say Gus from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Even though he dies (this shouldn’t be a spoiler but just in case…) he would be a fantastic boyfriend. He’s such a sweet guy and good-looking too!

I tag anyone who wants to participate!


That’s a wrap! Do you agree or disagree with my choices? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book tags!

Library Book Haul (#10)

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I blogged. I recently went to the library and decided to do another Library Book Haul. It’s the 10th one! You guys have really been enjoying these book hauls 😀 This book haul consists of three YA books and three YT (Young Teen) books. Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven would’ve been part of this haul but I started and almost finished it. A review will hopefully be coming your way soon!

*All Covers Are Linked To Goodreads*

1. If I Ever Get Out Of Here By Eric Gansworth (YA)

If I Ever Get Out of Here

Lewis “Shoe” Blake is used to the joys and difficulties of life on the Tuscarora Indian reservation in 1975: the joking, the Fireball games, the snow blowing through his roof. What he’s not used to is white people being nice to him — people like George Haddonfield, whose family recently moved to town with the Air Force. As the boys connect through their mutual passion for music, especially the Beatles, Lewis has to lie more and more to hide the reality of his family’s poverty from George. He also has to deal with the vicious Evan Reininger, who makes Lewis the special target of his wrath. But when everyone else is on Evan’s side, how can he be defeated? And if George finds out the truth about Lewis’s home — will he still be his friend?


2. None Of The Above By I.W. Gregorio (YA)

None of the Above

A groundbreaking story about a teenage girl who discovers she was born intersex… and what happens when her secret is revealed to the entire school. Incredibly compelling and sensitively told, None of the Above is a thought-provoking novel that explores what it means to be a boy, a girl, or something in between.

What if everything you knew about yourself changed in an instant?

When Kristin Lattimer is voted homecoming queen, it seems like another piece of her ideal life has fallen into place. She’s a champion hurdler with a full scholarship to college and she’s madly in love with her boyfriend. In fact, she’s decided that she’s ready to take things to the next level with him.

But Kristin’s first time isn’t the perfect moment she’s planned—something is very wrong. A visit to the doctor reveals the truth: Kristin is intersex, which means that though she outwardly looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes, not to mention boy “parts.”

Dealing with her body is difficult enough, but when her diagnosis is leaked to the whole school, Kristin’s entire identity is thrown into question. As her world unravels, can she come to terms with her new self?


3. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) By Maggie Stiefvater (YA)The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)

(I recently read the first book and fell in love. The review will be up ASAP)

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys – a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface – changing everything in its wake.


4. It Ain’t So Awful Falafel By Firoozeh Dumas (YT)

It Ain't So Awful, Falafel

Zomorod (Cindy) Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block . . . for the fourth time. California’s Newport Beach is her family’s latest perch, and she’s determined to shuck her brainy loner persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name—Cindy. It’s the late 1970s, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes U.S. headlines with protests, revolution, and finally the taking of American hostages. Even mood rings and puka shell necklaces can’t distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep way too close to home. A poignant yet lighthearted middle grade debut from the author of the best-selling Funny in Farsi. 


5. Nothing But Trouble By Jacqueline Davies (YT)

Nothing but Trouble

Odawahaka has always been too small for Maggie’s big scientific ideas. Between her stuck-in-a-rut mom, her grumpy grandpop, and the lifetime supply of sludgy soda in the fridge, it’s hard for Maggie to imagine a change.

But when Lena moves in with her creative spirit and outrageous perspective, middle school takes off with a bang. Someone starts pulling the kind of pranks that send their rule-loving new principal into an uproar—complete with purple puffs of smoke, parachuting mice, and a scavenger hunt that leads to secret passageways. Suddenly the same-old football games, election for class president, and embarrassing stories feel almost exciting. And for the first time in her life, Maggie begins to wonder if there might be more to Odawahaka than she ever saw coming!


6. Every Single Second By Tricia Springstubb (YT)

Every Single Second

A single second. That’s all it takes to turn a world upside down.

Twelve-year-old Nella Sabatini’s life is changing too soon, too fast. Her best friend, Clem, doesn’t seem concerned; she’s busy figuring out the best way to spend the “leap second”—an extra second about to be added to the world’s official clock. The only person who might understand how Nella feels is Angela, but the two of them have gone from being “secret sisters” to not talking at all.

Then Angela’s idolized big brother makes a terrible, fatal mistake, one that tears apart their tight-knit community and plunges his family into a whirlwind of harsh publicity and judgment. In the midst of this controversy, Nella is faced with a series of startling revelations about her parents, friends, and neighborhood. As Angela’s situation becomes dangerous, Nella must choose whether to stand by or stand up. Her heart tries to tell her what to do, but can you always trust your heart? The clock ticks down, and in that extra second, past and present merge—the future will be up to her.

Tricia Springstubb’s extraordinary novel is about the shifting bonds of friendship and the unconditional love of family, the impact of class and racial divides on a neighborhood and a city, and a girl awakening to awareness of a world bigger and more complex than she’d ever imagined.
