Thank you so much Meeghan for tagging me!! However, I’m going to be shortening the questions, answers, and nominees to five.

Let’s get started!

  4. Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination

Questions:

If you had to describe yourself in three characters, which ones would they be?

Aza Holmes from Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, Josephine March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, and I don’t know. A friend of mine says that I am a lot like Inej Ghafa from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo so I guess I’m going to go with that.


What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?

Home Alone!!! The first movie and the second one. I LOVED them both and I can always always always always re-watch them! The other two movies were pretty awful in my opinion


How many books are on your TBR?

243 books. And it’s still increasing!


What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence?

Slime. It’s disgusting, makes me want to puke, and gets everywhere. And once it sticks in the carpet, it sticks. Yuck.


What was the last book you DNF’ed?

Blanca and Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore. I just wasn’t in the mood for it.

5 Facts About Me (just like Meeghan, I think I’ve said some of these before, but there isn’t much to tell so sorry):

  1. I hate nails on paper, or walls, or chalkboards. It is such an irritating sound and makes me feel super uncomfortable.
  2. I was born with six fingers on each hand. Note the was – I now have only 5.
  3. I’m one of those people whose favorite color changes depending on their mood.
  4. I think I’ve said this before, but I don’t know what else to say. I love cooking and baking!

Who Am I Book Tag – Tag Thursday

It’s Thursday! Time for another book tag (my first in a long time lol). I was tagged by Xandra @ Starry Sky Books to do the Who Am I? book tag. I apologize Xandra, because you tagged me in April and I’m not getting to it until now.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Question 1:

IF YOUR LIFE WERE A BOOK GENRE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Contemporary. I wish that it was Thriller, but I’d probably be dead within a week lol . So definitely a contemporary, but without any romance…


Question 2:

WHAT VILLAIN FROM A BOOK DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH THE MOST?

A villain? I don’t think I identify at all with any actual real villain. An anti-hero: probably Kaz (Six of Crows) or Victor (Vicious). I probably am not super similar to them but a girl can wish!


Question 3:

WHAT PROTAGONIST ARE YOU MOST SIMILAR TO?

I am actually quite similar to Aza from Turtles All The Way Down. We both are kind of awkward, and not very comfortable in social settings.


Question 4:

WHICH BOOK DID YOU CONNECT WITH IN THE PAST THAT YOU NO LONGER DO?

Cross My Heart and Spy by Ally Carter. I originally loved the story when I was younger. I decided to re-read it a few months ago, and all the issues in it became very vivid to me. I’ve decided to not continue re-reading the series so that I don’t spoil the rest of it.


Question 5:

WHAT RECENT BOOK READ WOULD YOU LOVE TO BE A CHARACTER IN?

Six of Crows. I loved all the characters, and since Kaz is the leader, I have some guarantee that I’ll come out of any heist alive. I loved this book, and it is definitely going to be one of my favorite top ten books of 2019.


Question 6:

HOW DO YOUR READING HABITS SHOW OFF YOUR PERSONALITY?

I like to finish a series once I start, or at least skim read all the books. I think that translates into my life because I do my best to finish everything I start.

Also, virtually 90% of the books I read are e-books, and I spend most of my time on the computer or online, so I guess the fact that I favor e-books is also why I like being online? (Probably the other way around actually 😂😂)


Question 7:

WHAT BOOK TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF?

I don’t know. Books teach me different things every single day. I can’t really point out which book taught me something specific about me, but all books have taught me a lot of different things about myself and the world.

That’s it for this Thursday!! I tag:

Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads | Kay @ Hammock of Books | Sara @ My Year of Reading Dangerously | Crystal @ Paper Royalty

No pressure if you’ve already done the tag, or if you don’t want to do it. If you’d like to do the tag and I haven’t tagged you, go right ahead and be sure to link back so that I can check it out!

Mystery Blogger Award | Thank you!!

Welcome everyone! Today, I’m supposed to do a book tag, however, I was nominated to do the Mystery Blogger Award and I’m so excited!! The Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Enigma. I was nominated by the ever amazing Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads and Bakes. Be sure to check her blog out before you finish this post!

Thank you so much Meeghan!!!


What is the Mystery Blogger Award?

“It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.”


Rules

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog
  • List the rules
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  • Answer the 5 questions you were asked
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself

  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)
  • Share a link to your best post(s)

If you had to describe yourself in three characters, which ones would they be?

Interesting. Let’s see, I’d definitely be Stevie from Truly Devious, because I am fascinated with mysteries and murders maybe a little too much for comfort. Second character would be Cassie from The Naturals. She’s kind of shy and quiet and I am too in real life. Third character would be Jo March from Little Women. Jo and I share the same characteristic of getting angry pretty easily. We also both happen to be wannabe authors, though she’s more successful at that than me.

What’s one of your fave songs? (and share the clip if it’s got one!)

Confession time: I don’t really listen to music or songs. So I can’t really say what’s my favorite song.

What’s your go-to book recommendation?

The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I’ve been recommending this every chance I get, and I probably will continue to do so until the day I die. I really loved it.

List three things you are either grateful for, or that you like about yourself.

I’m grateful for my family. They’re so supporting and amazing and I’m glad that I have one. I’m grateful for books, for opening new doors to explore different communities and cultures. I’m also grateful for the bookish community because it’s so open and welcoming! I really love it here. Thank you all very much!

[Bonus/funny question] If you could take any animal and make it the size of another animal, what would you choose, and why?

I’d make a lion the size of a cat. I don’t really like cats, but I’ve loved lions since I was a tiny kid. I even still have a tiny toy lion that I used to play with. I’ve always wanted a lion for a pet.

Three Things About Me:

I used to paint. A few years ago, I was determined to become a painter and bought a lot of paints and canvases. A few successful seascapes, and failed flower paintings later, I gave up. I still like to think that I can paint, but I’m pretty sure I’ve lost my touch.

I love to travel. I love airplanes. I love visiting new countries, seeing amazing landmarks, and just being away from home.

My favorite color (as of the moment) is pale pink. My favorite color in the past has been black, red, green, white, cream, and a lot of other ones. They change with my mood.

10 Facts About Me

I’m currently out of book reviews/tags, so I decided to do something that is pretty simple: A Facts About Me post. I hope you enjoy and make sure to share your thoughts in the comments!

My greatest pet peeve has to do with paper. I hate it when people drag their nails on paper, or the wall, or a chalkboard, or anything that makes that awful sound! Honestly, it’s horrible.

I’ve written one novella. But I’ve kind of scraped it. I think it’s pretty awful. Oh, and I wrote another one that’s supposed to be in a series, but I got bored of that too.

My earliest memory of loving books is in the 3rd grade. My teacher suggested I read Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

My favorite genre is MTS. A.K.A. Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense.

My favorite book is The Fixer. I’ve said this over and over, but I’m not going to budge, I love The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.

My favorite authors are: Ally Carter and Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Both of their standalone novels and series are amazing!

I love travelling. Being on an airplane is magical to me! I love airport hassle, the actual flight, and stepping into a new and different country.

I love baking with all my heart. I love making bread, cake, and pizza from scratch! Dough is the most amazing part of it all.

I love coding. Designing websites from scratch with HTML (Hyper-Text Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) is amazing! If I’m not an author or a baker when I grow up, I’m going to be a web developer.

I love Chocolate. Hershey’s, Ferrero Rocher, Snickers, Milky Way, everything as long as it’s milk chocolate!

And that’s a little about me!

What are some interesting facts about you? What are your favorite books/authors/genres/hobbies/anything? Let’s chat in the comments below!
