1: What house are you in?

I am a Hufflepuff!

2: What is your patronus?

Mine is a Blood Hound, which I love because it is a puppy!

3: What is your wand?

My wand is a Alder wood with a Phoenix feather core 11″ and Hard flexibility

4: What would your boggart be?

Snakes, I get so afraid of snakes. I have nightmares all the time about them.

5: What position would you play in Quidditch?

I would be in the position of sitting in the stands, I am not athletic in any shape, way, or form.

6: Would you be a pure blood, half blood, or muggle born?

I have no idea, I mean any of these options would work for me because in any situation I would be a witch.

7: What job would you want to have after graduating Hogwarts?

Potions Master, I always loved mixing and making things. The bonus is that it can help others too.

8: Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

I would pick the Invisibility Cloak, I feel like the others would be more detrimental to my wellbeing.

9: Favorite book?

I loved the Half-Blood Prince, I think because that is when things get very serious.

10: Least favorite book?

I never really was a fan of The Chamber of Secrets.

11: Favorite film?

The Prisoner of Azkaban I think was the best for me. I felt like the magic was very noticeable in this movie more so than previous ones.

12: Least favorite film?

The Chamber of Secrets, I really did not like this book/movie.

13: Favorite character?

I think overall Lupin is my favorite character even though we don’t meet him until a few books in.

14: Least favorite/most hated character?

Professor Umbridge, she is a monster.

15: Favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Teddy Lupin of course!

16: Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Professor Quarrel, letting that troll into the school was just not cool.

17: Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?

I don’t think I do?

18: If you could save one character from the finale battle who would you save?

HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ME TO ANSWER A QUESTION LIKE THIS?! I WANT TO SAVE EVERYONE! If I did HAVE to pick I would pick Fred, I always felt so sad for George losing his twin.

Tag | Book Unhaul Challenge

TagTimel12:17I have been seeing this tag everywhere and my shelves are currently at full capacity so I thought it would be a great time to complete this tag. This was created by BooksandLala over on youtube, her channel is amazing! At the end of this post I will share her video with you incase you would like to watch for yourself. This tag has 10 prompts, for each prompt you have to get rid of at least one book. So in theory I should have space for ten  more books on my shelf when this is all done.

Divider

a book you rated low 

The Red Pony by John Steinbeck

The Red Pony

I just didn’t really like it, I felt it was boring and even though it was only 100 pages it seemed to drag, a lot.

a book you changed your mind about 

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

The Female Persuasion

This was the first book that came into my head and it did not take long. The more and more I think about this book the less I like it. It seems very generic and is a story I have read a few times. So, I am unhauling it.

a series you won’t be completing 

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)

This was a very hard one to admit. I really enjoyed book 1-3 of this series. But, it is time to admit to myself that I am not going to continue on with this series. I am no longer interested in stories like these. I am unhauling books 1 and 2, but I am keeping book 3 since it is a signed edition and I want to keep it for memories.

a book you DNF’d (did not finish) 

The Pisces by Melissa Broder

The Pisces

I read 3 pages and decided I didn’t really want to read this.

a book you have multiple copies of 

Image result for little women

The only multiple copies of a book I have are old editions of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and I am NOT getting rid of those. I mean look at the picture, you cannot tell me that is not an adorable picture and an adorable family!

a book you’ll never actually get to 

West by Carys Davies

West

I got this as a blind date with a book from my local bookstore. It sounds interesting, but I know I will not get around to it any time soon.

a book you bought because of the hype 

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aparix Sweeney

The Nest

This book is very hyped up over the years, I picked this up because of a book club which kinda fell through due to my schedule and honestly I don’t see myself reading this on my own.

a book you bought because of the cover 

The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale

The Wicked Boy: The Mystery of a Victorian Child Murderer

This was a total cover buy for me. It is beautiful. Oddly, this prompt was one of the hardest because I never really cover buy all that often. But, it was a cover buy. I read it earlier this year and I enjoyed it. But, it is one of those books you can only read once. I did a review for this book, you can read that here:  REVIEW | The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale

a book you don’t know anything about 

Never Caught by Erica Armstrong Dunbar

Never Caught: The Washingtons' Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge

This was a completely random pick up in the history section in my bookstore. I ended up really enjoy  it, which is a total win. The only reason I am unhauling this book is because I want to pass it around to my friends and tell them to give it to someone else after they have finished reading it. Maybe that isn’t really an unhaul? I don’t know. Anyway this was great and I am sad to see it go, but happy to pass it along.

a book you didn’t buy

My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran & Larisa Zageris

My Lady's Choosing: An Interactive Romance Novel

I got this for my birthday as a joke from my friend. I realized that I read it once and I would never really pick it up again. I am thinking about wrapping it up as a present for her to see what story she chooses and have a little bit of fun with her. So here is a fun book to unhaul! DividerSo those are the books I deiced to unhaul for this challenge. Some of these were very easy to get rid of while others were a bit harder to part with. I think the easiest one to unhaul is The West, due to it being a blind date with a book. I never actually picked it even though I bought it. The hardest book to unhaul was The Bone Season. It was hard to admit to myself that I really was not going to finish the series and acknowledge that my reading tastes have changed so dramatically.

I think my two favorite books to unhaul are My Lady’s Choosing and Never Caught. Mainly because I get to pass the books around and share them with others. My Lady’s Choosing is a perfect joke gift for my friend. Then on the other hand Never Caught was so good that I want to share it with a bunch of people. I kinda want everyone who has read it to sign it so the last person to get it gets to see the names of everyone.

Anyway, thanks for reading. I hope you have an awesome day.

P.S. Lala’s video is below if you want to read it and the question of the post.

I have yet to read this, but I can’t wait to try reading this interestingly formatted duel perceptive novel.

Find a book you read last year

I very recently picked this up on discount at Barns and Nobel. I mainly picked it up because I heard so many great things and I wanted to see for myself.

Find a book cover you don’t like

Tag |Ace of Spades Book Tag

TagTimel12:17

Hello all, today I am here to share a tag. I was lucky enough to be tagged by Regina from Bookish in Bed to complete the Ace of Spades Book Tag. This is an awesome tag that surrounds the book written by Amanda Foode, how fun is that? Sadly, I myself have not read the book, but these questions made me even more intrigued. Anyway, without further delay, to the tag!

Divider

1. Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own!

This may be a catch all answer, but Hobbiton and Bag End. I feel like this little town is just magical. I love the Hobbit and I always liked the start of the book and imagined all the things that happen there.

Image result for the hobbit

2. The City of Sin is home to three ruthless gangs: the Irons, the Scarhands and the Doves. Tell us about your favorite fictional criminal family/gang!

Honestly, I can’t answer this. I don’t really have a favorite fictional criminal gang. The only one that really pops into my head are the characters from the Bone Season. So I shall go with that!

Image result for the bone season series

3. Enne and Levi are about to be thrown into a deadly game… Name your favorite book in which the characters must play with, and for, their lives.

The only character that comes into my mind is Sherlock Holmes. While he does not “play” for his life. He often has to play mental chess to solve a murder and keep himself and Dr. Watson safe.

Image result for sherlock holmes book

4. The Doves are a gang of assassins… What book you’d kill to have in your hands right now?

Right now all I want is to have Stephen Kings new book in my hand. It is called the Outsider and comes out in May.

The Outsider

5. The City of Sin is full of people with dark and complicated pasts. Name one book or book series you used to like, but don’t anymore.

Sadly, I loved Sleeping Giants, but I have since lost interest. It is not fault of the series itself I am just a huge mood reader. Chances are I will end up liking it again in a few months or years.

Image result for sleeping giants

6. With complicated pasts abound, we can find many… burnt cinnamon rolls, so to speak. Name a character that has prickly and tough exterior, but is actually a sweetheart deep down!

Gah, I have no idea how to answer this, sorry!

7. Not only anti-heroes live in the Ace of Shades world! In New Reynes, one can find plenty of villains as well. Which bookish character do you just love to hate?

I love to hate Dolores Umbridge. She is a horrid character, but I have to admit so well written.

Image result for pink professor from harry potter

8. You, much like our main character Enne’s mother, went missing in the City of Sin. The main character from the last book you read is the one looking for you… How screwed are you?

Well, it seems like I am in the World of the Dead. I don’t want to say the book because it may be a spoiler if you have not read it just yet. Sorry to be so vague.

TagTimel12:17

First off I would like to thank Regina over at bookishinbed for the tag! This is my 5th time getting this award and it s truly amazing.

Divider

Previous Sunshine Blogger Award Posts

DividerQuestions

1.) Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog because I wanted a place I could have to discuss the things that I loved. While it is mostly books, you may have seen a few of my others posts about DIYs, cooking, and hobbies. While I write mostly about books and such I like to spread into other things I enjoy as well. You never know what you will have in common with someone unless you share it.

2.) What is some advice you have for other bloggers?

Just write about what makes you happy. Everything else will fall into place as long as you remember that this is meant to be fun and enjoyable.

3.) What fictional place would you travel to if you could?

If I could travel to a fictional place it would be Bag End or Hobbiton. I love the Hobbit and I always wanted to see what the little town and home would be like if I was truly there.

4.) What author do you wish you could be friends with?

I would love to be friends with Louisa May Alcott, I think she would be supportive, but would put you in your place if needed.

5.) Whose your favorite author that you’ve met?

I honestly have not met any authors at book signing or anything. I am hoping to change that in the future.

6.) What author would you trust to write your biography?

Gah, I have no idea. I think I would go with Stacy Schiff, she did a great job writing The Witches so I think she would do a great job.

7.) What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?

Harry Potter of course, but if I had to name a different one it would be The Shining by Stephen King. I love the 6 hour edition, yes there is a 6 hour edition.

8.) Which book to movie adaptation do you wish never happened?

I honestly cannot answer this. When I go to see a movie adaptation I go into it seeing it as something completely different. There is no way to make a perfect adaptation.

9.) What book do you wish would be turned into a movie?

I think I would love to see Jackaby by William Ritter make into a movie. It has adventure, lovable characters, and mystery. It is my second favorite series, only beaten by Harry Potter.

10.) What book do you wish had a cookbook for it?

I think I would love it if there was a cookbook based off of a biography. That way I can try all the foods that person loved. I mean if I am reading a book about them I would be interested in them so why not have a meal like them at least one time?

11.) What is your most anticipated release of 2018?

I think my most anticipated release for this year was The Hazel Wood, I did a full review which you can find here: Review | The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert. I was looking forward to this the moment I saw the description and it did not disappoint. If I had to pick one that is not yet released it would be Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft by Tess Sharpe or The Honey Farm by Harriet Alida Lye.

Day 3 Quote

I think this quote explains why a lot of people read books. Not only do we read to learn new things and educate ourselves, but we also read to explore and escape to far off lands.
