  1. What do you think is your defining quality?
    •  I think it would have to be how eggar I am to help in anyway that I can
  2. What book changed your way of thinking? Or your overall outlook towards certain things.
    • This would have to be Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, I think because I read it so young it really taught be a lot about family, making though decisions, and more.
  3. What is more important for you, the plot or the characters? What can make you stick it out to the end if everything else is failing in a book?
    • this is so hard I really despise an annoying character, but if the entire plot is bad the book is bad in my eyes. so I would say plot is more important. Honestly if the book is really failing I will just stop reading it or skip to the end if I need to know what happens to a particular character.

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.

TAG | Unique Blogger Award Vol. 2

 

unique

Thank you so much Irena for nominating me for this, I have to say I loved your questions so much. If you have never seen this girls blog, you need it check it out. Without further delay here we go!

Link to Volume One: TAG | The Unique Blogger Award

The Rules:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

Questions & Answers:

1. A monster breaks into your home! (Gasp!) But it’s not a very dangerous one, don’t worry. It’s just lost, poor thing. It can easily be scared, and then it will go into the wild and live happily ever after. But you need to scare it. The only thing that comes to mind is to throw a book at it, because you’re standing next to your shelves. You obviously don’t want to throw and possibly destroy a book you love, so you grab a book you don’t like and you don’t even know why you still have it. What book do you choose?

Now this is going to get me in trouble, but I want to be honest. If I had to throw a book at a monster to scare it away I would throw Illuminae by Amie Kaufman. I loved the concept, but I just could not get invested in the story.

18302455

2. You’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and you find a magical lamp. (You now it’s magical because it sparkles. Or something.) And what do you do – you rub the lamp of course. You know how these things work! And, yes, a genie comes out and says he’ll give you any superpower you want.
“But, I thought I was supposed to get three wishes!” you say.
“I’m the genie, I know how this works! You get a superpower!”
You shrug and accept the offer. A superpower is still great. Which superpower do you choose?

To me this seems like a super power, but it might not to others. But, I would ask for Omni-linguism. I would love to be able to understand any form of language.

3. I’ll keep this one shorter, I promise. XD Now, you have superpowers, but you still need help because you’re new at the whole supernatural thing. Which character (from a book or tv show) would you choose to be your partner and best friend?

I would pick Doctor John Watson, he seems like someone who would keep me levelheaded.

29af4-the-shining_poster_goldposter_com_6

My Questions For You:

  1. You are in the bookstore and you see someone walking around for an hour looking at all the books looking lost. Finally, you decide to ask them if they need help.They  admit they have no idea what book to read next, what book would you recommend?
  2. Image you get the opportunity to go back in time, maybe a mad scientist has figured out the technology, who knows? Anyway, the only thing is you need to feed the contraption a classic book and you travel to the time that it was written. What book would you feed that machine?
  3. You are in the library and you see someone reading at a table. Then you see the worst thing imaginable…. they are doing your bookish pet-peeve. What are they doing to that poor book?!

TAG | End of the Year Book Tag

Tag Tuesday

Thank you so much for the tag, Jacquie from Rattle the Stars  Jacquie is half of the duo over at Rattle the Stars, you should check them out. They are both wonderful writers and have a fun blog. I have to say I am glad I was tagged, this is a great tag to wrap up the year and look into the new one ahead of us. I hope you enjoy the answers.

 


The Questions:

    • Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Nope, thankfully this year I have either gotten rid of all the books I have not finished because I DNF’ed them or I finished them. Although I am currently in the middle of reading a review copy of The Last Girl by Nadia Murad, but I will be finishing it before the year ends.

    • Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

Nope, I just kinda go with the flow when it comes to reading.

    • Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I am looking forward to a few in January such as The Cruel Prince and The Hazel Wood.

    • What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

The Last Girl by Nadia Murad, The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert, and A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas.

    • Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

I honestly don’t think so. While I know I am going to enjoy the books I am reading or planning on reading I don’t think any will surprise me in any way.

    • Have you already started making reading plans for 2018? 

I have made a few plans, but I am doing a separate post on that very soon.


I hope you enjoyed the tag. If you want to participate please feel free to consider yourself tagged!

  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post/and or blog

Zoë’s Questions

1.What’s your favourite movie adaptation of a book?

I am going to go with the obvious answer here and say the entire Harry Potter series. While they did have their faults I enjoyed them very much.

2. Do you like the idea of e-books/kindles/audiobooks or would you rather have the actual, physical book in your hand?

As of late I have been on an audiobook kick. I love the freedom I have when listening to a book and I can get chores done or color at the same time. I also have been finding myself not being able to concentrate on reading, but being able to listen to a book and focus without any problems.

3. How many books are in your TBR list?

I currently have 35 books on my TBR that I already own.

4. Do you have a favourite quote from a book? Something that inspires you?

“I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now…” Amy March/Louisa May Alcott

5. What’s the first book you remember reading/having read to you?

I vividly remember being read the Peter Rabbit book(s) as a child by my Aunt.

6. What’s your favourite winter food/drink treat?

Hot cocoa is something I drink fairly often during the cold months.

7. How do you organise your books (if at all)? By author? Colour?

I always change  how I organize my books, but as of writing this I have them organized alphabetically.

8. Where’s your favourite place to read?

I love to read in bed or in my chair in the corner of my room.

9. Which fictional character would you love to be your best friend?

Jo March from Little Women, she is an amazingly strong and intelligent woman who is not afraid to have fun.

10. Do you speak/read in any other languages besides English?

Sadly, I do not speak any other language fluently, but I do know a little bit of Spanish and Russian.

11. What’s your favourite magical creature from Harry Potter?

I love Dobby, he is the best.

Jenniely’s Questions

1. What inspired you to start blogging?

Honestly I don’t know if anything inspired me. I just wanted to talk about books.

2. What book could you read again and again?

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and every Harry Potter book.

3. What’s your favourite reading food?

Chocolate, I LOVE a good piece of dark chocolate.

4. How much time do you dedicate to blogging a week?

Honestly, I spend about an hour or two a week to writing on my blog. This month it has been a lot less due to NaNoWriMo (when I am writing this tag).

5. Which bookish location would you visit and why?

I would love to visit Hogwarts, it is so magical! If I had to pick another place it would have to be 221B Baker Street. I feel like visiting Sherlocks and Dr. Watsons would be an interesting evening.

6. If you could meet any author, alive or dead, who would it be?

An author who has passed away I would want to meet is Louisa May Alcott. An author wi would want to meet that is alive would be Stephen King. Is that cheating? Oops.

7. How do you decide what book to add to your TBR

I love the fact that I am a driven person. I know it may sound odd, but I love the fact that I tend to take chances and try new things. When I set my mind to something I tend to do it, unless it is out of my control or something happened. If I was not a driven person I would not be where I am today in my life. I was told I would never be able to do a lot of things and honestly I have done those things and more. Never let anyone say you can’t accomplish something, because you can.  Mini lecture over. 🙂


I hope you enjoyed the tag, see you in my next post!

Aurora

Sleeping Beauty: A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention

This one may be a shock because it is a well loved book by many, but I would not get into Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I do think it was because I was in a bit of a reading slump and I was thinking about trying it again sometime in the future.

18302455

Ariel

Under the Sea: A Book With a Water/Ocean Setting

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, a thriller that takes place at sea. It was one of my top reads for this year!

18302455

Belle

Beauty and the Books: Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Jo March with forever be my top bookworm.

18302455

Jasmine

The Thief and the Princess: Name a Book with an Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance or a Book You Didn’t Expect to Love So Much)

This one is a tough one for me. I tend to go into books thinking there is going to be a love story even if it isn’t in the description. If I am to think of a book with an unlikely love story I would have to say Twilight. While I will say I LOVED the book when it came out. The more I think about it the more I think the whole relationship is very insta and odd.

Pocahontas

The Real Life Princess: Name a Book that is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read

My favorite non-fiction biography I have read this year was The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles. I picked it up when I went on vacation and toured the Vanderbilt Mansion.

Mulan

The Princess that Saved Her Country: Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know

Now for this I am going to pick a non-fiction book called Never Caught by Erica Armstrong Dunbar. This is the story of George Washingtons slave that took a huge chance and escaped to gain freedom for not only herself but for her future children. She is strong and brave for escaping, but also coming forward and doing interviews while she was still on the run.

Tiana

The Princess With The Coolest And Most Diverse Crew: Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general

The most recent books that I have read with a diverse group of characters is Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo with a bunch of awesome characters and And It Came to Pass by Laura Stone which showcases LGBTQ characters. I did a review for And It Came to Pass you can find it here.
