The important thing is not to stop questioning. – Albert Einstein
I found this on Flowers In The Brain.
I wasn’t tag, but it looked fun and right now because I decided to do NaNoWriMo this seems like it would be a good option since I don’t have a lot of extra time.
1.Do you get sick while reading in the car?
No, I don’t thankfully.
2.Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you?
C.S. Lewis. His writing seems so simple (that’s not quite the right word), but there are so many layers to it.
3.Harry Potter series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
1. I’ve read it.
2. It has amazing characters and plot.
3. It’s a series that my whole family (the ones that are old enough) enjoys.
4.Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?
I don’t have one of these book bags.
5.Do you smell your books?
Sometimes. I like the smell of new books, at least, some new books. Or at least I used to. I don’t know when the last time I’ve actually smelled a book.
6.Books with or without little illustrations?
I always like books that have illustrations.
7.What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
There are a lot of books like that, most of which I’ve never read again. I can’t think of a specific book right now though.
8.Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
Not that I remember.
9.What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
The Journeyman by Elizabeth Yates.
10.What is the thickest book on your shelf?
Collection of Jane Austen’s novels.
11.Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
I write stories. I hope that one day some of them will be published.
12.When did you get into reading?
I don’t remember when I didn’t love books. As long as I can remember I’ve loved hearing stories. I didn’t really get into reading until I was about nine.
13. What is your favorite classic book?
I’m torn between ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice.’
14. In school what was your best subject?
English, I think, or possibly history.
15.If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?
I would try to read it again because maybe there is a reason that this person gave it to me and I would want to find that out, and there would always be the possibility that I would like it better re-reading it.
16.What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games?
Fablehaven is in some ways similar to Harry Potter, but it still is its own series.
17.What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while filming?
Not filming at all. I don’t film. So this question is obviously not for me.
18.What is your favourite word?
I don’t really have one? There are so many amazing words that make lovely sentences, but they seem kind of meaningless on their own.
19.Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
Please, excuse me while I go to find out what these strange words mean.
From the very confusing definitions that I found I’m probably a nerd.
20.Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Fairies! Because fairies while they can be quite annoying are of the light.
21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?
I don’t know… Probably shapeshifters because in books that have angels I don’t usually like they way that they are portrayed.
22.Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
I don’t think I’ve really encountered either of these in what I read. Maybe spirits because they seem less likely to try and kill me. Although, when werewolves are in their human form some of them are fine (Remus Lupin).
24.Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
I don’t know what to say because both of these usually annoy me.
25.AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
Action-packed definitely! Sometimes romances are fine, but I usually prefer action-packed.
That brings us to the end of this book tag. I hope that you enjoyed it. Do you have a favorite word?
