Tag: Women Authors

That time again, the time I just nick a tag I liked from [P.S. I Love That Book]. Please do let me know if you do it too, for I’m a curious bastard, I want to know what you answered. This time it’s all about our wonderful female authors.

Pardon my liberty to rephrase the questions, and not include the more/less reasoning behind the tag.

  1. My favorite female authors: Currently it must be V.E. Schwab. I love the women she writes, and I love her writing, and I love her stories.
  2. Female written book that changed my perspective/views: Felicia Day’s biography “You’re never weird on the internet (almost)“, and Lilly Singh’s “How to be a Bawse
  3. Favorite gothic novel written by a female author: I’m torn between Frankenstein and Interview with the Vampire (or Blackwood Farm by same author)
  4. Favorite detective novel written by a female author: It’s easier to just name the two gem women who write amazing detectives, for by them I’d read anything – Agatha Christie, and Kathy Reichs
  5. Favorite poet / poem: Not a fan of poetry, have no real knowledge
  6. A book by a woman that I’d always recommend to a woman: I don’t think I read books that’d be easier to recommend to one sex/gender more than the other, so I’m at a loss here too. What do you like? I’m sure I can name a book or two to recommend if I know.
  7. Recently discovered gem by a female author: Shades of Magic, hands down. And then several more…

Tag: Sick Book

The usual. On regular basis I check P.S. I Love That Book blog, and steal the tags I liked the most. If you do it – drop me a link. And if you do interesting tags – also drop me a link.

1. Diabetes: name a book that’s too sweet, like REALLY sweet.
I’ll be boring and say, in a good way it was “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl
x1

2. Chicken Pox: Name a book you only picked up once and never will again.
Anne Rice “Memnoch The Devil“, fifth book in the chronicles.
x2

3. The Flu: Name a popular book that spreads like a virus.
I am glad to say it’s C.S. Pacat “Captive Prince” trilogy for me, since right after I read it, I realized it is being read all over, and it even got some awards in some places I follow. Not the Twilight level, but then, not the Twilight level.
x3

4. The Cycle: Name a book that you reread yearly, or at least often.
Old, basically first love – John E. Stith “Reckoning Infinity
x4

5. Insomnia: Name a book that kept you up all night.
Andy Weir – The Martian. Morning came. Morning went.
x5

6. Amnesia: Name a book that you’ve forgotten or failed to leave an impact on your memory.
Andy Loriga – “Tokyo Doesn’t Love us Anymore
x6

7. Asthma: Name a book that took your breath away.
Dmitry Glukhovsky – Metro 2033
x7

8. Malnutrition: Name a book that lacks food for thought.
Elizabeth May – The Falconer. That’s because I’ve read many just like this one, with differences too minor to make a dent. Otherwise the book and the story in itself is not bad, and if you’re not too oversaturated with these – it’s a decent read, really.
x8

9. Travel Sickness: Name a book that took you on a journey.
V.E. Schwab – A Darker Shade of Magic. Parallel London counts, right?
x9

Tag: Book + Song

Alrighty, I’ll continue on the train of nicking ideas from [P.S. I love that book] and do another tag. This one’s [Book+Song]: a book and the song that reminds you of it (or vice versa, I guess)

  1. [Captive Prince] series by C.S. Pacat; Lady Gaga – Perfect Illusion
    captiveprince
    I feel like I need no explanations here. Perfect illusion of love. Or an illusion of an illusion. Eitherway, this song had me a bit scared of what MIGHT be.
  2. [A Charm of Magpies] series by K.J. Charles; Marina and the Diamonds – Bubblegum Bitch
    acharmofmagpies
    Don’t even know how this happened, but this seems a perfect song for mister “Six foot three of money, mouth, and cock” Lucian Vaudrey.
  3. [I Am Legend] by Richard Matheson; Kanye West – Monster
    iamlegend
    If you have not read this book, I might surprise you by saying that this is NOT in fact the anthem of the vampires.
  4. [Tzimisce] by Eric Griffin; Lord of the Lost – Blood for Blood
    tzimisce
    Ah, Tzimisce. I imagine they might enjoy the painful vibrations this song provides.
  5. [Anno Dracula] series by Kim Newman; Jessie J – Do it like a dude
    annodracula
    I think this song got into my head mostly due to the ladies kicking ass when their men failed to Dracula. Funny how it seems he killed them all off, and turned most of the women.

Tag: Creatures of the Night

Facebook was kind enough today to show me the post my friends over at [P.S. I love that book] made. And while I don’t normally do tags, I thought, hey, New Year is here, why not just DO things I’d not normally do? I was interested enough to read their answers, so why not provide my own, right? Right. Original video is here: [Book Tag], and you’re free to link me your post regarding this too, thanks!

Tag: 10 supernatural creatures: name your fav book featuring that particular creature.

  1. Vampire: While per se not fav vampire, still a fav vampire book currently would be [An Unattractive Vampire by Jim McDoniel]; for good humor, and impressive vampires. Humor is definitely the first things I get attracted to, so such lovelies as VtM, Anno Dracula, or even Vampire Chronicles – fell short at the might of the joke.
  2. Werewolf: Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I liked the whole culture made up around them, how they are, what it’s like.
  3. Zombie: Pet Sematary by Stephan King. Honestly, might be the only book I’ve read with zombies in it in the first place…
  4. Ghost: Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice. Changed my life that book, it did. Or more like… Cracked the bubble I was in, and the hole just keeps growing.
  5. Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster: Currently it has to be A Charm of Magpies by K. J. Charles [1][2][3], and I’ve no comments to add.
  6. Fairy/Fae: I’m torn between Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris again (due to her great-nth-grandfather, not her, and only the book version), and [Dracula in Love by Karen Essex]. The latter book I kept naming as one of the bad books, but as I look back at it – hey, those fae people knew their shit, and Dracula had an interesting take on too.
  7. Demon: I have to go with my native author here and name [Naberijus by Jurgita Noreikiene] here. The nature of the demons there left an impression on me. And Bartimaeus by Johnathan Stroud just refused to be called a demon, so this is a no-go.
  8. Angel: [Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick], I believe they’re the only books with angels in them that I’ve read. And I haven’t read the last one yet either. Wasn’t bad, just… Fell off the wagon.
  9. Alien: [The Military Form by Christopher Rowley]. I only ever got the second book. I was still fairly a kid, and just randomly found it among our books deep in the storage room. My love for books was just starting to bloom, and this was perfect. Yes, my reading days began with sci-fi, and I will always have a spot for it in my heart and shelves.
  10. Superpowered human: Got nothing better, nor worse than [The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson]. Turning into a different creature by chemicals you yourself mix up counts, right? There’s this kind of superheroes/villains in all the grand universes, I feel.

So that’s that then. Consider a shot at this yourself, and please let me know if you do.
