Hello everyone! How has your April been?
I’ve been working on my Camp NaNoWriMo project so you know what that means, Snippets!!!! Actually, you’ll have to wait till Camp Recap and then you will have more than you can deal with.
But after searching the folds of the interweb, I have compiled a list of book related questions that I’m going to answer.
Numero Uno: Favourite book?
We start this off with a banger that no bookworm will ever answer with one book. For me I’d have to say, Kiki Strike, Inside the Shadow City by Kristen Miller, Keepers of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger, Divergent by Veronica Roth, Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, Warcross and Legend by Marie Lu, and Unblemished by Sara Ella
Numero Duos: Recent book you didn’t finish?
Feed by M.T. Anderson. I was only a few chapters in and I didn’t like the language nor the character’s actions. So it went to the back of the bookshelf ’till I go back to the library.
Tres: Current book you are reading
I’m in the middle of reading Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien and Restart by Gordon Korman.
Quatro: Can you read while listening to music?
Yes! I walk, I can run, and uphold a conversation all while reading. Though I might only half listen to you.
Also, excuse my Spanish/French. I have a Spanish test tomorrow and am preparing myself.
Cinco: What author’s writing style is your favorite?
I really loved Kristen Miller’s writing style. She just has a way of mixing random statements in with examples. Let me give you a snippet:
Six: Do you smell your books?
No, not that often. Sometimes when I’m in a mood, but not normally.
Sept: What is the thickest book on your shelf?
The Homelanders by Andrew Klavan with a total of ll38 pages. It is technically four books in one, but I’ll count it.
Ocho: Do you have a book with deckled edges?
I do! Wildwood by Colin Meloy. I think it adds to the book’s plot since the book takes place in the rugged wilderness.
Nine: Do you have a book with four or more people on the cover?
Once again, Wildwood by Colin Meloy.
Ten: Do you have a book with an award stamp on it?
Eleven: What books do you want to read?
Here’s a list of the shortened TBR I have:
- Hide and Seek by Mya Gray
- Anomaly by Krista Mcgee
- Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan
- Don’t You Dare Read This Mrs. Dunphrey by Margaret Peterson Haddix
- Supernova by Marissa Meyer (Even though it hasn’t been released)
- Legacy by Shannon Messenger (I want to fast-forward to November)
Twelve: What fictional place do you want to go?
I really want to visit Camp Half-Blood, Narnia, and Havenfield.
Thirteen: What fictional character would you like to meet?
I think it would be awkward if you met them for a day. So if I met these people I’d want it to be like we were best friends. In that case, I’d want to to meet Cress and Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles, Annabeth and Nico from Percy Jackson, Lihn and Dex from Keepers of the Lost Cities, and Day from Legend.
Fourteen: Who is your favourite strong female character?
I’d have to say Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicles. She is ready to protect herself, knows how to shoot a gun, but has a soft heart once you get to know her.
Fifteen: Who is your fictional crush?
I would have to say Kyaphus from Unblemished or Tam from Keepers of the Lost Cities.
Sixteen: At what age did you start reading chapter books?
In KG I was jealous of my friend because she could read really well I couldn’t. But over the summer I learned how to and I skipped reading the picture books. I found my mom’s old Nancy Drew collection and poured over them. When we had a class trip to the library in Grade 1, I remember asking my mom why I couldn’t take a chapter book out instead of a picture book.
Feel free to make this your own book tag if you want. Have an awesome day and stay tuned for more book related posts soon!
