The Ultimate Book Tag

I saw this tag over at libertyfallsdown. I've been meaning to do a few blog book tags and I thought this one was almost perfect. It'll be fun and simple. Plus I can still sip away at my tea while typing out my answers. I'm drinking PGTips if anyone was wondering. Without further a are the questions.


1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
 All the time. I'm one of those weird teenagers who feel sick in a car anyway after being in there for more than thirty minutes. The only thing I can do without feeling sick is either fall asleep or sing my heart out, which annoys my family, which is also why I love doing it. But if there was a tablet that could allow me to read without being sick in a car then I would take it.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
 I have two authors come to mind: Teri Terry and Susan EE. Teri Terry writes specifically towards a Dystopian world. Her pro's are beautiful, but weird and her characters almost speak like they're prone to feelings. Susan EE has a short sentenced structure to her books. Each sentence could be three words long and you'd still love it. I tend to think it adds more personality to the book.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
You will all hate me, but I've not read the Twilight Saga and I'm only four books in on Harry Potter. As a child I would've loved Harry Potter, but I'm nearing nineteen now and the books aren't really fun. They're very slow. However I also think that I would've loved Twilight back when I was a pre-teen. Vampires are something I've always loved. I'll have to read them one day.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?
Nope. I never had time to spare in school, so what would be the point. Plus I'm OCD when it comes to my books. If a book gets damaged I have a rant and then buy a new copy.

5. Do you smell your books?
One hundred percent. But not before spraying my Lady Gaga perfume on them.

6. Books with or without little illustrations?
 I'm not bothered about it. A little illustrations can be cute, but I prefer books to only have illustrations on the beginning chapters. I don't want to be distracted from reading by a few drawn pictures.

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
 I don't actually know. I only got into reading a little over a year ago, but if I find that book then I'll let y'all know.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
 I remember smacking someone in the face at a school book fair because they were about to get the last book on the shelf that I wanted. But it turned out that they had more in their cart. I was shouted at, but I wasn't bothered. I got the book!

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
Probably Blood Brothers or Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo. I always thought Private Peaceful was quite a big book when I was twelve. When I saw it after five years I was merely shocked.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

City of Heavenly Fire. It's 733 pages long. But I do have A Game of Thrones in my wardrobe because it makes my bookshelf look a mess.

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
Yes and it is my dream. I write New Adult fiction with characters set in College or University. But I'm also hoping to start writing some Dystopian very soon. You can follow my writing on my Wattpad account: FabulousDoll

12. When did you get into reading?
 I loved reading as a child, but gave up when I was about eleven. I started back reading last year and I've been addicted ever since. I'm annoyed that I gave something up that is now quite a big part of my life.

13. What is your favorite classic book?
 I've only read a few, but Of Mice and Men. I also love Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I hope to one day get a tattoo inspired by it. The 2010 remake of the film is also very good.

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?
 Not at first. I was always told that my story writing sucked, but I kept at it. When I was in year 10 my writing started to improve and I passed my GCSE's with flying colours. I was predicted an E, I had a B. I also enjoyed Art in school as well as Welsh and History.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?
 If they gave me the receipt then I'd take it back, but if not then I'd donate it to charity or my local library.

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?
 I'm not really sure. Most Dystopia get published saying that they'll be the next Hunger Games and it annoys me, but my favourite Dystopian would have to be Divergent, which is very similar. I'd also go with Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. As for Harry potter? I have none. But just check out anything by Cassandra Clare, she's amazing!

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?
 I don't think I have any apart from lip syncing when I'm out walking.

18. What is your favorite word?
 LUSH (It's a Welsh thing.)

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
I'm not any of them. I'm more of a sassy confident bitch. I do have a nerdy side when it comes to writing books, reading and quiz shows though.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?
I'm undecided. I've only read a few books with vampires in and I enjoyed them, but I've never read a book with Fairies (Faes). I think I'll like both though.

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?
 If they're human killing Angels then absolutely yes!

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
 DARN! I love Ghosts. Its my dream to go on a Ghost Tour and I've had experiences with the dead. But I like Werewolves too.

23. Zombies or Vampires?
If they're the Zombies from Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter then one hundred percent yes. If not then, no.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love
 It depends. If they can pull off a love triangle like Cassandra Clare then continue with it, but if not then I'd prefer them to stop writing them. However, I love a good forbidden love story.

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
Once again it depends. If it's a Dystopian or Epic Fantasy then I want action-packed/romance. If it's a contemporary or New Adult then romance.

Feel free to have a go at this tag. I thought it was a fun one to do and I am definitely going to be doing another tag soon. Maybe I'll make it a once every two weeks thing. But...yeah. I had fun.

  1. Brilliant answers although why oh why do you have to pick between Harry Potter and Twilight ahhh. Do I just copy the questions and answer them? Link it back to your blog? I like this one!
