Winter Wonderland book tag

“Baby it’s cold… Baby it’s cold outside! ” 

So today where I live it’s pretty freaking cold out. It’s the kind of day where you just want a Snuggie and to watch movies/read books all day…. Or blog because you’re insane (like me!).  I’m gonna to do the Winter Wonderland tag, even if it’s not winter yet. It feels like it!

What book is so happy and sweet that it warms your heart?

I would have to say… Dash and Lily’s book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. This book even takes place around Christmastime so it works. But it’s also really lighthearted and cute, but very intelligent and witty.

What is your favorite book with a white cover?

This cover may not be all white but I’m gonna go with it. If I stay by Gayle Forman. I love this book. Unlike a lot of other books I read the main girl, Mia, is not at all annoying. She’s awesome, and her parents are super cool as well as Adam.

You’re sitting on the couch snuggled in a onesie and drinking a nice, hot cup of hot cocoa but what MONSTER book are you reading?

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. Awesome? Yes. Scary? Heck yeah. Especially in the beginning. Pale bowler hat guy in the closet… Nails scratching at the window at night… creepy, huh? That’s just the beginning of that book.

It started snowing! Which fictional characters would you love to have a snowball fight with?

Shadowhunters! In Clockwork Angel or City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. That would be really fun. Though it might get messy…;/

Sadly your fire is about to go out. Which book would you tear the last few chapters out of to add to the fire? (hypothetically speaking)

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It’s just so sad… *sniff*

What book is so close to your heart that you would give it as a gift to someone this Christmas that wants to gets into reading?

I guess that’d have to be…

Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. These are the books that made me love Young Adult Fantasy. I’ve gone a long way from then but these will always be close to my heart.

There you go! Byyyeeeeeee

The Sick Book Tag!

I’m just getting over a cold which sucks, so here’s a my Sick Book Tag. It was first created by Dark_Chickie on Wattpad. So the rules are really easy so I’m not going to go into describing them, I hope you catch on! Here I go!

Diabetes- a book too sweet, like really sweet.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Not really romancy but just adorable. I was smiling the whole time reading it.

Chicken Pox- a book you picked up once but will never pick up again.

Beta by Rachel Cohn. I really liked the idea of this book but it disappointed me 100%. I don’t think I’ll ever finish the series.

Influenza- a contagious book that spreads like a virus.

Clockwork Princess By Cassandra Clare. There are no words for my love of this book. It made be laugh, it made me burst into tears like a baby, and made me happy cry.

The Cycle- a book you read every month, year, or often.

Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. I’ve been reading this book since I was a little girl and I will continue reading until I am in a wheelchair.

Insomnia- a book that kept you up all night.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I couldn’t get into this book for the first 100 pages but after that I couldn’t put this book down. This book is so great. I keep mentioning this book in my posts but I just love it that much!

Amnesia- a book that’s forgotten and didn’t leave a powerful impression in your memory.

“”I wish I could wake up with amnesia! And forget about the stupid little things.”” Sorry I couldn’t help it 😉 This one is……Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I really, really, really liked the idea of this book. But it was just super boring. Scott could have done so much more with this book! I just didn’t really ever get into it.

Asthma- A book that took your breath away.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green. This book was amazing and so well written. It made me feel the feels.

Malnutrition- a book that lacked food for thought.

Matched by Ally Condie. Unfortunately, nothing happened. Ever. -_-

Travel Sickness- a book that took you on a trip through time and space.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Again there are no words for my love of this book. So good! Why did it have to end?!

Well there you go! I hope you enjoyed that, I did!



The book sacrifice tag!

The book sacrifice tag is that I’m going to be telling all you lovely people which books I personally didn’t enjoy. Don’t hate me if you liked some of these. I’m glad you enjoyed them! So let’s get this baby on the road!

Okay so the first scenario is ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE.  So let’s say you’re walking through an aisle and then BAM! Zombie Apocalypse! Like the full on dead people coming to eat you. Then a voice crackles through the speakers saying that the only way to defeat the zombies is to find an over hyped book. For this I’m gonna go with……. wait for itttttttttt………. Matched by Allie Condie. I think this book was way too hyped, and it was pretty dumb. I only made it through half the second book, and definitely don’t plan on finishing the series.

Okay second scenario! So you’re at the salon and you just got this super cute haircut. You walk outside and BAM! Torrential Downpour! The only way to save you’re hair is to sacrifice a sequel and use it as an umbrella. Which one will I choose? Hmmm……. Torment by Lauren Kate! The first book was okay, but as the story went on there was almost no character development.  Both Daniel and Luce were annoying. They were just instantly in love! I mean I get that he is, but she hasn’t met him in this life! You don’t just instantly fall in love with someone just because he’s attractive!

So third scenario is that you’re in the library and BAM! Global warming strikes! Outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re in the library and you’re only hope of survival is to burn a book… Which would be the first book I run to and which book would be the last one i’d run to? First book would be…….. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan! They are so freaking dumb!! What are they doing with their lives?!?! I’ll tell you! Partying and making out with strangers. Ugh. This book made me so mad, as you can probably tell. We gonna let it burn, burn, burn.  Second book that I would never, ever, ever burn is… Whoo this is really hard! In my head it’s a fight between three books! Across the Universe, The mortal Instruments, and The Darkest Minds… I can’t choose a single book in TMI that i love the most, Or in Across the Universe, So I gotta choose The Darkest Minds. If I think about this too much I’m gonna think of other books that I love so I’m done!

So yeah that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this! You should do this tag, It’s actually fun!


Creatures of the Night book tag

Hello Everyone!

Today I’ll be doing the Creatures of the night book tag first created by Katytastic on Youtube. In this tag we have a list of ten different supernatural creatures. I will think of a book and a character from the book that most fits the creature given. So let’s do this thingy!


Team Edward!! Just kidding! Never! Anyway, I’m sorry if this spoils anything for you but I’m gonna choose Simon from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I just think he’s really sweet and funny.


I guess I’m gonna go with Cole  from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. I didn’t like Sam very much from that series, because I think he’s whiny. I just think Cole had more character.


I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a zombie in it yet. I’ll go with R from  the Warm Bodies movie. I haven’t read the book, but I really liked R.


I don’t know if she was technically a ghost but I’m just gonna roll with it. I chose Mia from If I stay. Not because that is the only book I’ve read with a ghost in it (which it probably is)  but I really like that book.


So of course when I see warlock I think Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments! And for witch I’m gonna say Lena from Beautiful Creatures.


For this one I’m going to go this the Fae in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. In, I think, all the books I’ve read with fae in it they are always EVIL! Or untrustworthy! Or Both!


I, again, don’t know if these are technically demons but I’m gonna go with the clockwork creatures in The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. These babies are super creepy.


So I’m gonna go with Patch from the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick. Even though I didn’t really like Nora in this series, I really liked Patch. I love me a badboy. 😉


This automatically goes to…….. Wait for it…….. *clears throat* Shades Of Earth (#3 in the Across the Universe trilogy) This is some of my all time favorite books!! So great!


Eech this is gonna be really hard. I love so many! Er maybe….. No….. but….. No! Fine! The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken! I love this book so freaking much! Ruby is super cool, Liam is adorable and a sweetheart, Chubs is hilarious, and Zu is a cutie pie. And all of them have superpowers!!  I love this trilogy so much, which you can probably already tell! I can’t wait to read the last one!

So yeah…  Thanks for sticking with me this whole time! The Creatures of the Night tag was super fun! You should do it! Let me know if you do! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
