I have come out of my mid-week-blog-post cave to join in with this (irresistible) bog tag as created by The Notebook Sisters . This week is their 3 year bloggerversary and they HAVE A TAG PEOPLE. A tag! (If you didn’t know, I enjoy tags. Mainly because I enjoy answering questions, but also because… well mostly because there’s questions).
1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (Check my post about pretty covers from my TTT a couple of weeks ago). The Unsplintered series of book covers (which I have never read) have made me insanely curious (also because everyone seems to be talking/reading/blogging about them).
2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you’ve ever read.
Crazy as in psycho crazy or crazy literally? Well, for A, I’d go with Alice from Rebecca James’ novel Beautiful Malice. For the second option, I think I’d go with Craig from It’s Kind Of A Funny Story and also Charlie from The Perks of Being A Wallflower. I loved both of them and I also love love love how their mental illness was a main topic in the book (not glorifying MI, but I think they’re both written with such oomph and integrity and just love)!! Of course, there’s also the characters from J.K. Rowling’s amazing mind: Professor Trelawney and Dumbledore.
3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?
I’ll go with 1984 (George Orwell) and To Kill A Mockingbird (only the first part though). As you can see, I’m not a huge fan of the classics… Oh and also the ending of Allegiant (Veronica Roth), BUT I did enjoy the rest of the book (just to make that clear).
4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you’ve been “late” to pick them up?
– The Book Thief (Markus Zusak): still getting onto this actually
– The Fault In Our Stars (John Green). I mean, I wasn’t super late and I’ve still managed to read the book a couple of times, but I was a little bit behind everyone else.
5. Caterpillar: What’s the most confusing book you’ve read?
The Messanger (Markus Zusak), The Thief Lord (Cornelia Funke) and the beginning of The One and Only Jack Chant (Rosie Borella). Most of the time I push through with the books (as I’ve done in all three), and I definitely recommend the first two, and so far (because I am currently reading it), I do recommend it, but we’ll see when I’m finished.
6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep?
1984 (George Orwell), which I still haven’t managed to carry on because it’s so bleak and boring (not the book, but the character that narrates the novel). I really like the ideas in theory, but I’ll have to push through the beginning to get to the juicy stuff!
7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?
The main genre of books I enjoy are murder mysteries and cute romances, that don’t have A LOT of smiling and laughing out loud, but there is definite smiling. For example, Racing Savannah (Miranda Kenneally) was cute and it involved lots of ‘aw, that’s adorable smiling’.
8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?
Mia from If I Stay (Gayle Forman). I also really liked Adam from the same boo.
9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you’ve read this year?
I think the monsters from Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs) were brilliantly written and I could imagine them perfectly in my head!
10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What’s the latest book/series/author that’s completely swallowed your interest?
Rainbowell Rowell: Attachments, Fangirls and Eleanor and Park. I am currently waiting for Landline at my library!
