Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Hello!!! I hope all of my Charmlings are having a good day so far.

Now, I found this tag at icebreaker694, and since I have a ton of unpopular opinions, I thought it would be fun to do.

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE.

Book61

This will always be my answer for these questions.

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE.

552886

OK, I confess. I loved the first book. But it went downhill after that.

AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE.

Image result for hermione and ron

No, just no.

A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR.

Romance. Nuff said.

A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE.

Harry Potter himself.

A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO.

Marissa Meyer. I’ve only ever read Heartless, but I’m hoping The Lunar Chronicles are better.

A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING.

The “strong female”. Yes, I love kick-butt girls who can take care of themselves, but I hate it when that’s over done and they refuse help from others.

A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING.

The Twilight books.

THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK?

The Chronicles of Narnia.

High School Book Tag

Heyo! I was tagged by the wonderful Sam @ RiverMooseReads. I would just like to take a moment to say-

Now, I’m homeschooled. So I don’t know the first thing about “High School”, I doubt that’ll be a problem, though.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the creators: Namitha @ TeenMemoir and Jasmine @ HowUsefulItIs
  2. Answer the questions.
  3. Add pictures! (If you want to)
  4. Tag (about) 5 people.

A+ on the test: A book or character that makes you smile?

Alex Rider and Artemis Fowl. These are my favorites of each series, and Xander is reading Skeleton Key for the first time.

I love them so much! Alex is sarcastic and athletic, Artemis is sarcastic and smart. I think they would be best friends. (After Alex apologizes for punching Artemis in the face)

Sports Team: A fictional family that you would like to be a part of?

book68

The Penderwicks are so funny and lively! Who wouldn’t want to live with them?

Class President: A book that tries to make a difference?

Book72

God, this book. I wrote a review on it a while ago, you can read it here.

I just love how there’s so many people, with so many different stories and lives. This book takes you through the feelings of several people- kids and adults alike.

High School Sweetheart: A Book character you have a crush on?

*Hysterical laughter, followed by gross sobbing*

  1. Severus Snape
  2. Draco Malfoy
  3. Artemis Fowl
  4. Alex Rider
  5. Sherlock Holmes
  6. Halt

And that’s not even half!

Prom Night: A book with a beautiful cover?

Ummmm……

I only own three of them .( I’m hoping to get more books for my b-day. (Oh, quick side note- I have 126 unread books of my bookshelves at this point in time.)

Spring Break: A book you can always turn to if you need an escape?

Book38

Many a summer night was spent reading this on the trampoline.

School Lunch: A book character(s) you want to have lunch with?

Pirates7

That’s a toughy.

Lets go with Holly Short and Sabina Pleasure. Imagine the stories they could tell!

Halloween Party: A character you would like to be for one day?

Professor Dumlbedore. I would troll the heck out of every student and teacher at Hogwarts!!!

School Bully: A villain you don’t want to go to school with?

Nate Grey from Clockwork Angel. I would beat that sorry excuse for a human until he was nothing but a pile of forgotten memories.

Graduation: A book with a bittersweet conclusion?

The Harry Potter series. I. Cried. So. Hard. *Sigh* I just pretend like books 5+ didn’t happen. (Except Luna Lovegood)

I’ll just leave this open, I’m too lazy to tag anyone specific.

The Wishlist Book Tag

Yeah, I know it’s Monday, and that it’s time for a TBR post. BUT! I have some big surprises coming later this week or early next week and a TBR might spoil it. So, we are going to do this tag that I found at The Book Prophet

Tis’ an amazing blog. You should check it out.

1. Pick the two books you most want to purchase/receive at this moment

Book65

&

Book43

Yesterday my family and I went to Barnes & Noble, and I found TFIOS, but unfortunately I hit my budget for awhile. As for The Last Guardian, I can’t find it ANYWHERE! .(

2. Pick a book that you have wanted for the longest time

Book1

I have wanted this for years! But my dad won’t buy it because he says I already own it. THE BOOK WEIGHS FOUR POUNDS AND HOW ON EARTH AM I SUPPOSED TO READ THAT?! It has all three LOTR books as well as the afterwards, calendars, and so on. I can’t even pick the darn thing up!

3. Pick a sequel or companion story that you want to own

Book66

I just bought Mockingjay at the thrift store, and I already own The Hunger Games, but Catching Fire is proving very illusive.

4. Pick an entire series (or box set) that you want to get your hands on

Book50

There are literally dozens of series I could choose, but I’ll stick with The Lunar Chronicles cause I really want it.

5. Pick a book from a favorite author of yours that you want to own

*Cue maniacal laughter*

Just one?! There are so many to choose from! Hmmm, maybe I’ll get lucky on my 16th b-day….

To answer that question-

Book121

I love the first two PJ books (that’s all I’ve been able to get my hands on) and I also adored The Sword of Summer. I’m hoping to get this one soon.

6. Pick a popular book that you really want on your shelves

Book122

I have heard so many good things about this book. I just hope I won’t have to wait long.

7. Pick a book that you just recently decided that you wished to own

Book123

I wasn’t sure I wanted to read this until I saw it at B&N. Now its on my TBR. Along with hundreds of others.

8. Pick a book that is either in the mail or you are going to purchase next

Pirates7.gif

Ponies.gif

9. Pick a hidden gem novel that you would like to read

Book70

Does this count? I discovered it a few months ago and it seems pretty cool.

10. Finally, pick a new release you really want to have

Book124.jpg

Not sure if this counts as a “new release”, but I would like to read it since I loved Clockwork Angel so much.

Well, that was fun! I’ll just leave this open for whoever wants to do it.

Tookish Tag

I found this beauty at The Road of a Writer and couldn’t help but do it! (She did it a long time ago, but luckily I’m one of those weird people who go through everyone’s old posts) In case you didn’t know, I’m a huge LOTR and The Hobbit fan. I’ve seen all the movies and have read all but The Return of the King.

Rules

  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer questions
  • Tag some of your own fellow Tolkienknights!

How were you first introduced to LotR/TH and was it love at first sight/read?

The first time I can remember watching LOTR was at a Mexican restaurant here in town. We were waiting on our table and I look up at the TV just in time to see Frodo pull Sam into the boat, you know the scene I’m talking about. Anyway, I turn and ask my dad what movie it was and my uncle just explodes (hes a hard-core fan as well), saying that I needed to watch it and that my parents have failed in raising me, blah blah blah. Long story short, my dad bought all three movies and I have loved them ever since.

If you could meet the actors who portray the characters in the movies, would you?

DUH!!!!!!! I would love to meet them!

What is your favorite credit song from LotR/TH?

Gollum’s Song is my absolute favorite, with The Last Goodbye and Pippin’s song as close seconds.

The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit – which is your favorite?  *evil laugh*  (And no, you don’t actually have to decide.  I’m merciful like that. *magnanimous smile*)

The Hobbit. And its all because of Bilbo.

Who is your favorite all-around character?

Bilbo Baggins, hands down.

What is your opinion on Boromir?

That he did what he thought was right to protect his people. And I would have done the same.

 How many times have you watched the movies/read the books?

I lost count somewhere around 8 trillion ,)

What book is your favorite?

Although The Hobbit is my favorite all around, my favorite book is The fellowship of the ring. There’s just so much that wasn’t in the movies!

Who is your favorite female character (other than your answer to question #5)?

I’m gonna agree with Ms O’Carroll, Eowyn. She’s so independent and awesome! I’m glad she ended up with Faramir.

Who is your favorite male character (other than your answer to question #5)?

The Hobbit5.gif

He reminds me of one of my dad’s friends.

I tag any and all Tolkien fans out there!!

Basics of a Writer Tag (Original?)

Ok. So, I’m not sure if anyone’s ever done this tag before, but I haven’t been able to find one. Tell me if it stinks, K?

Rules!

  1. Link back to the original post and give credit to the creator

  2. Thank the person who tagged you

  3. Answer the questions below

  4. Tag 5-20 other writers to do it

  5. Don’t be afraid to add your own questions if you have ’em!

 

The QUESTIONS!!!

Do you write better when listening to music?

Yes. Its pretty much the only time I can write.

Do you have a “writing playlist”? Whats on it?

Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, three One Direction songs, a couple of Jewel songs, Johnny Cash, some Maroon 5, and Dixie Chicks.

Where is your favorite place to write?

Mah BED! Or the kitchen while I’m doing dishes.

Where do you find inspiration?

I find inspiration in the various books I read and movies I watch. Sometimes peoples and nature inspire me, but its very rare.

What is your favorite type of character death to write?

Off screen. Very few details and lots of mystery.

Have you ever suffered from writer’s block?

The Hobbit4.gif

Quite often in fact.

How do you deal with it?

READ! WATCH TV! WASH DISHES! The list goes on and on, but they don’t usually work.

What was the worst story you ever wrote?

The worst story I ever wrote was a sort-of FanFiction of LOTR with a main character named after Arwen.

Avengers5.gif

I don’t like to talk about it.

Do you prefer tea or coffee when your writing?

COFFEE! If I can get it. But tea will do.

What about snacks? Bitter or sweet?

Bitter and salty for me. One of my favorite snacks is Caesar salad dressing with a carrot to dip in it. I also like beef sticks and jerky.

When do you usually write best?

When its cold and raining. Bad weather just wakes up the artist in me.

Where do you go for help when you can’t find the right word?

Google.

Are you part of any writing groups? (Here’s mine @Teen Writers)

^Yes^

Have you ever tried to write FanFiction?

Again, yes. I’m still working on it. (Its a Supernatural fanfic)

Was it any good?

I dunno. I’m still doing “research” for it 😉

Are you a Planner or a Pantser? Maybe a little of both?

I used to be a pantser, but recently I’ve started planning my books in advance.

And finally- are you published?!

NO! NOT YET! Soon………………………

FIRSTS

Real Holiday: My family went to Galviston when I was really young. I have some memories of it.

Best Friend: We are still kind of friends. She really only talks to me when her other friends aren’t around.

Award: *Sigh* This is embarrassing. I used to go to a local christian school a few years back. Um, I would tell “stories” to make my life sound more interesting. So, one year at graduation my teacher (whom I was never really fond of) gave me the “Whopper Award”. I was furious and still, to this day, can’t eat Whoppers. Thanks Miss C.

Sport: Hahahahahahah!!! I have never done sports! I was in cheer for a while, but thats it.

Love At First Sight: Yes, its real.

Ghosts: Ye-es I do. I could go into the multiple theories I have that explains their existence, but it would take too long.

Aliens: Again, yes. Its impossible and highly illogical that we are all there is.

Soul Mates: How could I not? My parents are soulmates, and the only reason, in my eyes, that someone wouldn’t believe in them is simply because they haven’t found their’s yet.

Heaven: Yes, yes I do.

Hell: Yes.

Kissing On the First Date: It depends on 1) Is he cute? or 2) What has he eaten?

Yourself: I… I don’t know…. Do I believe in myself? Wait! Am I even real?! OHMYGOSH! Guys! What if I’m not real? What if I’m just a figment of someone’s imagination?! HELP!!!

Well that was fun…

  5. List three of your favorite blogs

  6. Tag at least two others to try this tag

The Questions-

A-Annoying- Name a character that got on your nerves.

Opal Koboi from the Artemis Fowl books. She is one of my top 20 favorite villains, but she is really annoying.

L-Labyrinth- A plot that’s hard to understand.

Book81

Did he get the colt, or was it a dream?! I couldn’t follow the story. I had no idea what was real and what wasn’t, or was it all a dream? This book gave me a headache.

E-Excellent- What book, in your opinion, has the best writting?

Book82

My mom read this book to my siblings and me, and I loved it from the beginning. The writing was really good too.

X-Xenograft- A plot/situation/character-type thats been way over used.

The whole “damsel in distress” thing is way over used! We are not helpless!

C-Careless- A book that is filled with plot holes and inconsistency.

Book88.jpg

Ugh! I could go on and an about this book! Thankfully the 5th book looks better (yes, the 5th, it was at the thrift store!).

H-Helpful- A book that’s always been there for you.

Book38

I would read this at the end of a long day, and it really helped! It made me see that life could always be worse then it is now.

A-Anticipation- A book that you’ve wanted to read for a while.

Book1

I still can’t find it!

R-Ravaged- A book to movie adaptation that really stunk.

Wanna guess?!

Book22

IT STUNK SO BAD! Like seriously, how can you mess up THIS bad?! 

M-Metamorphic- A character that changed a lot.

Artemis Fowl. He went from selfish, snobby, and friendless to selfless, sweet, and friendly in just a few books!

I-Ingenious- A one of a kind story/character.

Book34

I have never read anything like it! (I could rave about how AMAZING this book is for hours, so I’ll be kind and stop here)

N-Narrative- A retelling of a story that you like better then the original.

Book48

AW YAS! A Jack and the Beanstalk retelling?! I love, LOVE, LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it!

Animorphs. I read part of the last book and decided to never finish.

3. A classic that you’re just not interested in?

I just, ugh! I couldn’t keep going! Sorry to all the Jane Eyre fans out there, but I’m not one of you!

4. Any genres you never read?

Romance, Historical Fiction, and Non-Fiction.

5. A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?

Book63.jpg

How can I?! I read a spoiler and it wrecked my childhood! .(
