Tag: Halloween!

Since it’s the month of Halloween (yep.), I figured I’ll just go ahead and do any Halloweenish book tags that I find. This was the first that came around, very short and easy:

1. Carving pumpkins- what book would you carve up and light on fire?
– “Metro 2035” by Dmitry Glukhovsky; I reviewed this book, will not repeat myself.

2. Trick or treat- what character is a treat, what character is a trick? 
– Treat – Lucien Vaudrey from A Charm of Magpies; Trick – Nicaise from Captive Prince

3. Candy corn- what book is always sweet?
– The Holy Trinity of Trilogies: “Shades of Magic” by V.E. Schwab; “A Charm of Magpies” by K.J. Charles; “Captive Prince” by C.S. Pacat

4. Ghosts- what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
– Alucard from Shades of Magic. But I hope he lives too long for that ever to happen.

5. Dressing up in costume- what character would you want to be for a day?
– Lucien Vaudrey from A Charm of Magpies

6. Wizards and witches- what is your favorite Harry Potter moment?
– The moment I realized Snape rewrote the textbook he was learning from. Dude!

7. Blood and gore- what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?
– Paige Dearth “Born Mobster“. I have a hard time reading of things like that in general.

A to Z book tag!

You know what I haven’t done in a while? A book tag. So here’s one, taken from [PerpetualPageTurner]:

Best Sequel Ever:

  • I dislike most first books, so, second book of Captive Prince, and many more.

Currently Reading:

Drink of Choice While Reading:

  • Sweet, carbonated, and preferably in a can. Or just tea.

E-reader or Physical Book?

  • Both are fine!

Longest Book You’ve Read:

  • I don’t even know tbh, many are very long nowadays, from Anne Rice’s stuff, to Martin.

 

Major book hangover because of:

  • Hangovers are good things, right? Because I think then, the book I had to take a break after was Captive Prince trilogy.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

  • Two. Three if we count the one that is not purely mine.

  • Witcher saga, but the most time per book was the very first that made me realize how amazing books can be, that being John E. Stitch book “Reckoning Infinity”

Preferred Place To Read:

  • Oh there were many, there are many, and there’ll be more, sadly I can’t recall one from the top of my head.

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
