Tags to the rescue

It’s Tuesday.

“Duh,” you say. Of course it’s Tuesday. That’s usually what comes after Monday and before Wednesday. However, I did not realize it was indeed Tuesday until… five minutes ago. So yeah. Imagine my shock.

Good thing tags are still a thing!

I was nominated for the Leibster Award by Dekreel (again! I feel famous!), so let’s just jump right in!

THE RULES!!!!!!!!

  1. Thank the blog you nominated for the award. {Many thanks!}
  2. Answer the questions they give you.
  3. Give 11 fun facts about yourself.  {it occurred to me I didn’t do this. Oh well. This post is long enough without it.}
  4. Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award and give them 11 questions to answer. {we’re not doing this because this is my little world and I do what I please. SIKE it’s because I’m lazy and also trying to post this in record time.}

THE QUESTIONS!!!!!!!

  • Why would a woodchuck chuck wood in the first place?

To support his woodchuck family of course.

  • If you had the ability to travel back in time, but could only stay in that time for one hour before warping back to present time, “to when” would you go?

That’s a good question. Time travel is something I think about a lot. *Tardis whooshing noises in the background* Either London circa 1890 or somewhere in the US circa 1950.

  • Would you rather live in Antarctica for a year, or the Sahara Desert for a year?

Oh, the Sahara Desert for sure. I have the cold tolerance of a lizard.

  • Give the most random use for a cucumber.

Hide magic relics in it. No one ever suspects a cucumber.

  • You get to rule the world for five seconds. What do you do?

Permanently ban artificial grape flavor. I don’t know what that abomination is supposed to be, but it sure isn’t grape.

  • Pick one of your OCs (Original Characters) and give him/her a camera. What does (s)he take a picture of first?

Hey, let’s do Daisy and Ron! Daisy would take a really aesthetic picture of whatever is readily available, and Ron would invent the selfie.

  • If a man in a creepy half-mask started calling for you on the other side of your mirror, would you follow him in?

Sure, what could possibly go wrong?

  • Describe the perfect ice cream sundae.

Take a half-frozen scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream, drizzle with warm, dark chocolate fudge and then just drOWN THAT BAD BOY IN SO MANY M&MS YOU DON’T EVEN SEE THE ICE CREAM ANY MORE.

  • If you could design a t-shirt, what would you put on it? What color would it be?

Probably this little dude: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ And it would be black. An excellent fashion choice for summer if I do say so myself.

  • What is one thing you love about God?

He hasn’t given up on me yet, which is… pretty amazing.

  • Pick the GIF that describes the taste of coffee in the most creative way.

Get it…? Because tea is better? Oh dear- *jumps out of the way as the coffee army descends on me*

 

Okay so while we’re doing tags and saving my sorry hide, Sarah of The Sarcastic Elf did the 20 Questions Book Tag like a month ago and I thought to myself “well that looks fun,” and the side of me that wants to become a world class jewel thief in a fantasy universe vaguely reminiscent of early 1800s London and wear a mask 24/7 and climb around on rooftops was like “steal it.” So I did.

THE 20 QUESTIONS BOOK TAG!!!!!!

How many books do you think are too many books in a book series?

Six usually feels like pushing it, but there are exceptions. I just get distracted when reading long series, because, you know, there are SO MANY BOOKS IN THE WORLD. So many.

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

Give them to me. I will gripe endlessly, or at least until I get the next book, but deep down, I’m enjoying myself.

Hardback or paperback?

Anything that isn’t a screen. My poor burned out eyes are still angry at me for trying ebooks.

Favorite book?

Ha. Ha, ha, hahahahaahhahaaa…

Least favorite book?

I think the book I despised the most was Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh. I want that afternoon back. Seriously, there wasn’t one likable character in that whole book (okay maybe the MC but he was meh at best), one character That Shall Not Be Named (Hunter) treated everyone else like trash, the MCs basically got away with ending the world with no consequences (and were rewarded for their stupidity) and what was the ending????? *deep breath* I was so disappointed. The premise was so cool.

Love-triangles, yes or no?

No.

It’s a whole different story when the MC isn’t in the middle though. Not nearly as frustrating.

The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. What was the hype around this book??? *confused shrug* I didn’t get halfway through. Surely there is a better way to integrate backstory than clumsily dumping on my head. Surely.

A book you’re currently reading?

Dracula by Bram Stoker. (no relation.) I’m enjoying it so much. This. Is how you do suspense.

Why did three people prose to Lucy basically at the same time though. I can take a monster that turns into a bat and drinks people’s blood but that’s too far fetched.

I also enjoy Stoker’s attempt at writing a Texan character more than I can explain. Comic gold.

Last book you recommended to someone?

Uh… Maybe Voyage of the Dawn Treader?

Oldest book you’ve read?

Sarah said the Bible, which is probably the oldest book I’ve read too. *steals from Sarah once again* I’m a despicable person.

Newest book you’ve read?

My own. So new it’s still BEING CREATED. It’s like watching a monster come to life really.

Favorite Author?

Andrew Peterson! No, JRR Tolkien! No, CS Lewis!, No-

Buying books or borrowing books?

Buying books is fun because it’s YOURS and you can KEEP IT FOREVER and YESS MY PRECIOUS. But if I bought as many books as I borrowed… things would not be well.

A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

I’ve said this before but I Did Not Like the Cruel Prince and I stand by my guns.

Bookmarks or dog-ears?

If the book isn’t yours, use a bookmark. If it is yours, you can dog ear it. What????!!!! screams that horrified masses that turn up on my doorstep within five seconds. It’s yours! You can show that it’s well loved! Books do not have nerve endings and will not feel pain if you fold a corner. That’s not how inanimate objects work.

A book you can always re-read?

I want to say the Wingfeather Saga, but every time I read it I come down with the feels, so maybe not “always.” More like “when my heart needs to explode.”

Can you read while hearing music?

Only if it’s instrumental.

One POV or multiple POVs?

I’m a big fan of books that show the same story from more than one angle. So yes please I will take all the POVs. Including the villain’s. Especially the villain’s.

Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Depends. Sometimes I just sit there for hours. And sometimes, not so much. It depends more on what else is going on. Some days concentrating for five seconds is way too much to ask of a brain.

 

It’s not even Tuesday in some parts of the world, but it is here, so technically I’m not late. And even if I was, that’d be okay, because you’re a patient crowd. Right? Right??? 

So yeah um ok bye.

    1. Also, I agree. I do not like e-books. 😛 1.) They aren’t pretty. 2) they hurt my eyes and 3) you can’t really collect them and 4) they are hard to snuggle up with in front of a fire on a snowy day.
