the nameless book tag

Shoutout to Lisa // Inkwell for tagging me! I don’t remember the last time I did a tag – maybe ONCE a million years ago? And I ended up deleted that post because it wasn’t related to my usual content? Yes. Yes. Yes.

Well this one is book/writing related, so it stays!

// What book has been on your shelf the longest? //

So I don’t have many books on my personal book shelf upstairs since my mom loves to alphabetize all our books downstairs. And we just opened a little coffee shop/library/workspace (more on that later!) so most of our books have been shipped off to the store.

Plus, at college, I didn’t really bring too many books….sad, yes.

This one would probably have to be Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I got it after a group of girls at my summer camp job couldn’t stop talking about the main character.

 

// What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next? //

I had to run over to Goodreads to check these ha.

Current: Old Man’s War, Discipline Equals Freedom

Old Man’s War is for school that I, um, haven’t finished despite the class being over? Discipline Equals Freedom is a book from by dad about doing hard things to improve yourself.

Last: Entwined

Really cute story! A retelling of the 12 dancing princesses. 4/5 stars.

Next: The Throne of Glass series or Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

 

// What book did everyone like, but you hated? //

Mmm I hate to say this since I didn’t read very far, but the first Harry Potter book. I’m willing to give them another try, but I wasn’t expecting them to be so….for children? I know, dumb.

// What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t? //

Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movies (they were well-made but I’m not a big fantasy fan), but I would still like to read them.

// What book are you saving for retirement? //

Sherlock Holmes and maybe The Magic Tree House series. I loved those growing up and can’t wait to read them to my grandchildren once in retirement.

// Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end? //

Definitely wait until the end. I hate having endings spoiled for me!

 

//Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside? //

I usually don’t read them? Is that a thing? I only do if I know the author, which isn’t too often.

 

// Which book character would you switch places with? //

Mmm maybe Angel in Redeeming Love, although she had an awful, awful life. I’m mostly interested in the love interest hehe.

Percy Jackson.

Elizabeth in When Calls the Heart.

Depends on the mood 😛

// Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad later? //

Probably Killer Angels. I wasn’t looking forward to it but it’s become one of my favorite historical books!

// Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book? //

Like Lisa, definitely How to Train Your Dragon. The books were so, so different and the movies actually made it a better story for once.

Thank you for the tag, Lisa! And shout out to my sister for taking all these pictures, since I couldn’t get home to take them myself…

Bonus question for you: which book character would YOU switch places with?

    I’ve been meaning to read The Hobbit (and LOTR) for ages now, but have never gotten around to doing it! Maybe this year’s going to be the year. 😉
