Would you rather bookish edition!

Would you rather…
1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?
Definitely trilogies, I would of preferred it if it was series so then Harry Potter and The mortal instruments etc would count. I think you can get more invested into the story if there is more than one book. I haven’t really ever read a standalone which I love.  

2. Read only female or male authors?
It doesn’t really make a difference for me, I don’t pick my books according to the gender of the author but by looking at my shelves I see I have books mostly written by female authors so I am going to go with that.

3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?
I buy literally all my books from Amazon. I know its wrong but *shrugs*

4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?
Probably movies, I think they would became too different if they were TV shows. Some books work as Tv shows but not all of them.

5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?
5 books a week! DUH!

6. Be a professional reviewer or author?
A professional reviewer, seen as my creativity sucks. Also you would get free books!

7. Only read your top 20 favourite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?
Always read new books, how else would you discover new favourites!

8. Be a librarian or book seller?
A book seller, I don’t really have an explanation for that one tbh.

9. Only read your favourite genre, or every genre except your favourite?
I could not go with out my fantasy books so READ MY FAVOURITE GENRE.

10. Only read physical books or eBooks

I only read physical books anyways. Who wouldn’t want a physical book?

The Social media book tag

This tag was created by faultydevices here is the original video

All you have to do is answer these bookish questions based on social media sites!

Twitter- You’re favourite shortest book

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K Rowling 200px-Tales_of_Beedle_the_Bard

I loved this book, even as reading them just as stories they were very fun. My favourite of the stories in the book were- ‘The fountain of fair fortune’ and ‘The tale of the three brothers’.

Facebook- A book everybody pressured you to read

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars

I think I read this just as it was being announced that it was being made into a movie. The hype of this book was unreal, so I decided to give in and just read it.

Tumblr- A book you read before it was cool

Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling

harrypotter

I am not saying I was here from the beginning but I read them when it was more uncool to read Harry Potter. I am pretty sure it was the first proper book I ever read.

MySpace- A book you don’t remember whether you liked it or not

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

mockingjay

I remember loving the series, its one of my favourites. But after hearing so many bad things about Mockingjay my own opinions kind of got lost. I cant remember if I was disappointed by the ending or if I liked it. I really need to re-read the book.

Instagram- A book that was so beautiful you had to instagram it

My life next door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

my life next door

This was the last book I put on instagram due to the prettiness of the cover. SO SUMMERY!

Youtube- A book you wish could be turned into a movie

The selection by Kiera Cass 

selection

I think the first book could be adapted into a great movie. I don’t know about the rest of the series but I think the first one would be so good.

Goodreads- A book you would recommend to everyone

Vicious by V.E Schwab

vicious

I wasn’t expecting to like this book as much as I did. I think everyone should give this book a shot even though its adult I think really anyone could read it.

Skype- A book with characters you wish you could talk to instead of just reading about

Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

Vampire academy

Wow I haven’t mentioned this book yet. I would love to talk to these characters (especially Adrian) although I would probably have to do it at night.

The book cake tag

1. FLOUR: A book that was really slow to start but picked up as it went alongelite

I’m going to go with my most recent read which was The Elite by Kiera Cass. It is the second book in the selection series. The first 50 pages nothing really happend but then it did start to pick up. So far I really advise this series, it is unlike any dystopian I have read.

 

2. MARGARINE: A book that has a really rich and great plotlotr

Theres quite a few, the Lord of the rings series. I cannot even imagine how much work went into crating that world. It is the most detailed world. Also the Harry Potter series, I love how everything links back to the first book it feels as though every point made in the book will soon turn out to have an effect later in the books.

3. EGGS: A book that you thought was going to be bad, but turned out to be quite enjoyableif i stay

If I stay by Gayle Forman. I never necessarely thought it was going to be a bad book but I hadnt heard the greatest praise for this book, people seemed to love her other duology Just one day much more than this one. HOwever I read it in a day and I thought it was great and I can definetly see myself re-reading it. I am now very excited for the movie.

 

4. SUGAR: A sugary/sweet book51gembSD3OL

Billy and me by Giovanna Fletcher, by looking at the cover you can tell what kind of book it will be. This book is just every girls dream- an insanely hot actor falling in love with you. Its a really sweet and enjoyable read.

 

5. ICING: A book covering every element you enjoyVampire academy

Probably the Vampire academy series. Badass female protagonist. Loveable best friend. Funny and snarky humour. Forbidden romance. Insanely attractive guys. A rich and unique interpretation of paranormal folk lore.

 

6. SPRINKLES: A book series you can turn to for a little pick me up when you’re feeling downcity of bones

The mortal instruments series. I find all the characters so much fun and I find it really easy to pick up a Cassandra Clare book and jump into the Shadowhunter world.

 

7. CHERRY ON TOP: Favorite book of the year so farcity of heavenly fire

Probably my most anticipated release of 2014 which was City of Heavenly fire, it was all I could of ever asked for in a book. Perfect end to the Mortal instruments series.

I tag anyone who has not done this tag!

Summertime Madness book tag!

Summer may be nearly over for me but that doesnt mean I can’t do this tag which was created by Jackeatsbooks.

1. Show a book with a summery cover!my life

I feel like this one is a little predictible and everybody puts it but…LOOK HOW SUMMERY IT IS!

 

2.Pick one fictional place that would be the perfect destination for a summer vacation!

For some reason my first thought went to Hogwarts or St Vladmirs then I realised that was a bit illogical. Then I thought of my recent reads and realised I would love to go Palm Springs which is in California from the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. Not the school obviously maybe just chilling all summer at Adrian’s.

 

3.Youre about to go on a flight to your summer vacation. But you want to read a book that lasts for the whole flight, what novella do you choose.un

The shatter me novellas Destroy me and Fracture me. Ive heard really great things about these and that they are a must read for any fan of the Shatter me trilogy.

 

4. You have a case of summertime sadness what happy book do you pick up to shine a smile on your face?Vampire academy

Probably the first book in any long series like Harry Potter and the phiosphes stone or Vampire Academy. The first books in these series are just so fun and its nice to see how far these characters have come and what they used to be like.

 

5.You’re sitting at the beach all alone…which fictional character would be your beach babe?maxon

I feel like ive mentioned this series to much recently so I am not going to say Adrian Ivashkov from the bloodlines series. Instead I’m going to say Maxon from the selection, I just read the first book and I love him…I hope my thoughts don’t change!

 

6. To match your icecream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional sidkick do you pick?

I’m going to say Kenji from the Shatter me trilogy, because he keeps thing so calm ALSO HE CAN TURN INVISIBLE. I’m sure we would have alot of fun with that special power during the summer.

 

7. Share the summertime happiness! Who do you tag?

The Character TV show tag

The Character TV show tag

1. Who is the best kick-ass character?allison

Allison from teen wolf (RIP Allison). She wasnt even one of my favourite characters of the show but I have got to admit she saved the day every episode. She had her flaws but at the end of the day she was the most skilled teenager on that show and she was only a human.

2. Which character do you most dislike?governor

The governor from the walking dead. He is the most repulsive and disgusting man on any TV show I have ever watched. DIE. Those two episodes in season 4 based around him I began to change my mind and then, no, you are still a physco

3. If you could date any character from any TV show who would it be and why?deputy

Every male specimen from TVD, Stiles and Derek and PARRISH (new favourite of mine) from teen wolf, and Dean Winchester from supernatural. Also side note, lets pray to god that Parrish turns out to be a good guy.

4. If you could change a character in any way what would it be?klaus

I would change Klaus, so that he would kill for purpose. I remember him and Damon talking about it one episode and he was wondering why Caroline does not forgive him for all the bad stuff he has done where as Elena does for Damon. Klaus should stop killing for the sake of being bad. Take a page from the Damon dating handbook and you might get the girl.

5. What character to you made all the wrong choices that didn’t add anything to the plot?carl

Carl from the Walking dead, he is just so annoying. So, so annoying. What the show and be annoyed by fricking Carl

6. Which character was the best villain whom you love to hate?katherine

Katherine Pierce. She is just so bad. She does terrible terrible things, and takes joy in other peoples suffering. Even when she turns human she gets one over on all of the vampires. The day she knew she was going to die, she just had to make her doppelgängers life a bit harder. Then she gets sucked in to hell. I think most people who watch this TV show prefer Katherine to Elena any day.

7. Favorite side-kick character with the most heart?stiles

STILES from Teen wolf, I mean lets be honest 90% of the reason we watch Teen wolf is for his sarcastic commentary. The other 10% is for the hot guys.

8. What is your favorite fictional romantic relationship?deleans

Probaly either Damon and Elena, just because it was beautiful to watch their relationship form over 5 seasons or Klaroline (Klaus and Caroline) I think they had one of the most interesting relationship. I also don’t know if it really counts because they were never technically in a relationship together- they just had a bond. And kissed and had sex. I also always looked forward to seeing here scenes together more than any other characters .

9. What character did you think was the strongest?caroline

Caroline Forbes. She just gets so much shit from everyone. Every single person who she has ever had a relationship with on this show (minus Klaus) has had something horrible to say about her. Then she gets turned into a vampire and her best friend doesn’t talk to you. She got killed and was in a hospital full of blood bags. She did not choose to turn. And then after everything she goes through, keeping her secret from her Mom who is the Sheriff. And then her Dad dying. And her numerous break ups. But she never once has turned off her humanity.

10. Best protagonist?dean

Dean Winchester from supernatural. He is such a fantastic main character. If there was anyone I would want to watch start and stop the apocalypse, unleash all demons from hell and fall in love with an angel (maybe that last one didn’t really happen)-its this guy.

Here is my version of this for book characters! 

If you do either of these tags be sure to link me so I can see them all!

The Characters book tag!

The Characters Book tag

1. Who is the best kick-ass character?Rose

Rose Hathaway, Hands down Rose Hathaway. Killed more strigoi than most guardians in a life time and shes only 17/18. (Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead)

2. Which character do you most dislike?

Umbridge, I thought she was just bad for the sake of being bad. Even Voldermort had some explanation of why he was evil. Umbridge was just looking for power. (Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling)

3. If you could date any fictional character who would it be and why?

I know I just started reading this series but I am going to have to say Adrian Ivashkov. I’m on the 5th book in the series and he is definetly my favourite character. He is the Finnick Odair of Vampire Academy. (Vampire academy series and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead)

4. If you could change a character in any way what would it be?

I honsetly cant think of any right now. I think the characters are like that for a reason and its part of there personality.

5. What character to you made all the wrong choices that didn’t add anything to the book?clary

Okay I know she oviously made a difference to the story because shes the main character and everything but Clary Fray made some stupid decisions throughtout the first 5 mortal instruments books. (The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)

6. Which character was the best villain whom you love to hate?

Sebastian Morgenstern. He is just so sick and twisted. And I love it. (The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)

7. Favorite side-kick character with the most heart?

Samwise Gamgee, of course from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I dont think there really needs to be an explanation for this. (Lord of the rings by J.R.R Tolkein)

8. What is your favorite fictional romantic relationship?

I think Finnick and Annie from the Hunger games series are really cute but seen as we dont really get to see alot of that I am going to say Hazel and Gus from the Fault in our stars. Consequently both end tragically. (The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins and The Fault in our stars by John Green)

9. What character did you think was the strongest?

Will Herondale from the Infernal devices series. I feel for the guy. In the first book I was like why is he acting like such a dick. Then things became clear. We found out his back story and oh boy was it emotional. (The Infernal devices series by Cassandra Clare)

10. Best protagonist?harry potter

This is a tuff one but I am going to with the classic answer Harry Potter! (Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling)

 

This was really fun to do! I may do another one of these but in relation to TV shows.

Summer Reading TBR

 My Summer reading TBR

So I have a very long holiday this year before I go back to school in September, so I have about just under 4 months off. Which means I can fit in a lot of reading and here are some of the books which I am planning to read although it is very unlikely I will actually read all of them.

1. The Vampire academy series by Richelle MeadVampire academy

I very recently watched the film and I thought it was really fun and had such loveable characters and it made me really want to read the books. I’ve been told I should have a little break once through about the halfway mark of the series so I may have a break and read a nice light contemporary novel.

Synopsis: ‘St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever’

2. The selection trilogy + novellas by Kiera Cassselection

I’ve been waiting for this box set to come out for ages and its out this summer. I can’t wait to read this trilogy.

Synopsis:For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined’

3. Anna and the French kiss trilogy by Stephanie Perkinsanna

All I hear about these books are amazing things. The last book is out in July or August so I can marathon it

Synopsis: Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?’

4. Vicious by Victoria Schwabvicious

I’ve heard this book is kind of like x-men or really just any Marvel movie so I cant wait to read it.

Synopsis: ‘Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?’

5. My life next door by Huntley Fitzpatrickmy life

This looks like such a perfect summer read and I’ve heard nothing but good things.

Synopsis: ‘The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, messy, affectionate. And every day from her rooftop perch, Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs up next to her and changes everything.

As the two fall fiercely for each other, stumbling through the awkwardness and awesomeness of first love, Jase’s family embraces Samantha – even as she keeps him a secret from her own. Then something unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha’s world. She’s suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

In total 15 books, I really hope I can get through all of them these holidays!
