I Dare You! Book Tag

Too long agoI was tagged by Karen Jo @sincerelykarenjo to do the “I Dare You” Book Tag! I’ve been excited to do this one so here we go πŸ˜€

Rules:

  • You must be honest
  • You must answer all of the questions
  • You must tag at least 4 people

 

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?Β Well, truth be told I still have some of those Rainbow Magic fairy books on my shelf. So–Holly the Christmas Fairy. If we’re only talking YA and up, The Royal Treatment by Lindsay Leatvitt. (Actually that might be classified as more as middle grade? But it was in the teen section in my local library lol). And there’s also Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (we have the UK edition), but it isn’t technically on “my shelf;” it’s on my older brother’s because my family has had that book longer than they’ve had me lol.

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?Β Current read: Carry On. Last read: Cress (it was a re-read). Next read: Always and Forever, Lara Jean (probably).

3. What book did everyone like, but you hated?Β I usually don’t hate books, but I was definitely didn’t like Eliza and her Monsters, especially after all the glowing reviews of it I was seeing.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?Β The truth it out–Lord of the Rings. I’ve heard the books are good but they’re just soΒ longΒ and I can’t commit to that when there are so many other good books I want to read.

5. What book are you saving for your retirement?Β Have you seen how disorganized I am? I can’t plan that far ahead haha.

6. Last page: read it first or wait til’ the end?Β Why on Earth would you read it first? End of course!

7. Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?Β I usually don’t read it but it’s definitely not a waste of paper and ink; I think it’s amazing for the people who are in the acknowledgements!

8. Which book character would you switch places with?Β Probably Cress from The Lunar Chronicles (but after the series ends so I don’t have people trying to kill me all the time). She’s a super cool hacker (!), I love what she gets to do at the end of the series (!!), and she gets Thorne (!!!).

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)Β Tbh all of my books–I have so few since I get them all from the library that I can pretty much remember exactly when/where/how I got each one. For example, I got Ella Enchanted (my all time favorite!) at the beginning of the summer before fourth grade, and it reminds me of the trip I took that summer πŸ™‚

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.Β Well I got this picture book that I don’t even remember the name of and also don’t know where it is when my kindergarten teacher lost my diy moon and stars mobile.

11. Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?Β Um…no. I have, however, directed them to the library πŸ™‚

12. Which book has been with you most places?Β Well some Harry Potter is older than me and I’ve moved 6 times so probably that one haha.

13. Any “required reading” that you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?Β Not high school but I read The Outsiders in middle school and really didn’t like it, but I know the story and want to reread it–I think I would love it now ❀

14. Used or brand new?Β Most books I have are brand new (because I have no books…) and I love new books, but I also love cheap things more haha.

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?Β Had to google him so nope.

16. Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?Β Nope! Although I have to admit that I love The Princess Bride and I’ve never read that book so who knows.

17. Have you ever read a book that made you hungry, cookbooks included? TheΒ Bliss Bakery. It’s Raining Cupcakes. Sprinkles and Secrets. Frosting and Friendship. The Cupcake Queen. Pies and Prejudice. Pie. (Isn’t that just the best book title ever???)

18. Who is the person who’s book advice you’ll always take.Β Me haha. I’m the one who knows me and my books best πŸ™‚

19. Is there a book outside of your comfort zone that you ended up loving?Β I really liked the Tempest trilogy even though I usually don’t read time travel!

  1. Awww thanks for the tag… will do this soon.., πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    And I want to be Cress too adn only because of Thorn..She’s sooooo lucky I wanna hate her.. hahaha… But she’s so kind, isn’t she?.. Thorne and her are the best.
    Also I loved Eliza and her monsters… I kinda see myself on Eliza but there is a part I didn’t like… 😦 😦 BUt overall it was a good book for me.. It’s amazing when people see books differently. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And a friend told me that the film of The Princess Bride was better than the book but I still wanna read it though. πŸ™‚

    BTW, You’ve moved 6 times? Wow, ive never met someone who have moved as much I did… Me too, countless times but my books usually stayed at my parents’… But now that im living with my aunt, they all with me now. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    —My comment is too long.,… Im being chatty right now, πŸ™‚

    1. I look forward to reading your responses πŸ™‚ I love Cress she’s so cute and naive but she’s also super fierce and badass at the same time like you go girl! Different opinions on books make things interesting and fun πŸ™‚ And I want to read Princess Bride too, and still always love that movie ❀ Yeah, I moved a ton when I was a little kiddie, although I haven't moved in a while πŸ™‚ I love longer comments :)))

  2. Thanks for the tag, Kay! Haha, the Rainbow Magic books have probably been on my shelf the longest too. Ooh, same for LOTR! I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling that way. Heard great things but don’t know if I’d be able to read it. Lovely post!

  3. This is such a cool tag! Loved your answers! I also still have some Rainbow Magic books on my shelf! Haha. And I also love Cress, the Outsiders, and the Princess Bride movie (who doesn’t love this!?). I highly recommend you read the Lord of the Rings books someday! They’re fantastic. πŸ™‚

  5. Thank You for the tag ❀ really great answers, I have to agree with you on The Lord of the Rings but If I really want to be honest with myself, I don't think I'll be readin it haha. And I really don't understand people that read the last page first haha

  6. This is such a cute tag! I have read Cinder but haven’t gotten any further in the Lunar Chronicles. I can’t wait to continue it, though πŸ™‚ I am obsessed with fairytale retellings at the moment. It’s all I seem to be reading. I read your bio and it says you’re writing . . . any specific genre? I am working on a set of fairytale mash-ups (big surprise lol). Love your blog!

  7. Awe thank you for tagging me! πŸ™‚
    I keep seeing the Tempest trilogy being mentioned on your blog and I actually really enjoy time travel so I probably really need to pick those up soonπŸ˜πŸ˜‰

    Everyone talks about Eliza and Her Monsters which I also want to pick up. “I was born with a reading list I will never finish.”
    This quote is so trueπŸ˜πŸ’œ

  8. This is a fun meme. I have to recommend the Lord of the Rings books, but starting with The Hobbit. They are fantastic! Most of the books I have read remind me of a certain time in my life or a place I was reading.

  9. I’ve heard there are over 200 Rainbow Fairy books now, but I still haven’t read one. The summaries make it seem like it’s the same story in each book. Jack Frost tries to ruin something but doesn’t. :/

    But I do recommend reading LotR sometime! It does look like a long book but, the weird thing is, compared to the fantasies being published today, it’s actually relatively short….

    And I love how you direct people to the library! πŸ˜€

  10. I like Cress for the same reason as you and I admire that she’s intelligent and knows how to entertain herself. I haven’t read Lord of the Rings for the exact same reason haha though now I realize it’s not as long as Game of Thrones series or Outlander series
