Hello everyone! I decided to do a simple tag today 🙂 No one tagged me to do this one though I saw this one going around a few blogs. So let’s start the Get to Know Me tag:
Tag Thursday is back! 🙂 I was tagged by Jonas at Other Things to do the Playlist Shuffle Tag. Basically you set your music to shuffle and list the first 15 songs that come up → NO CHEATING. Go check out Jonas’ list, I really love his taste in music. Also he recommends more music to listen to in his post ‘Listen To This’. And onto the tag 🙂
I was tagged by Always Opinionated Girl to do the Secret Life of a Book Blogger tag.
How long have you been a blogger?
Since June 2015. So about…8 months.
At what point do you think you will stop?
I’d like to think I will never stop but then again you never know. As long as I still have interesting thoughts and am still reading, I probably won’t stop blogging.
What is the best thing?
Getting to read and see other people’s blogs and posts. How they set out their blog, what they blog about, their thoughts, etc.
What is the worst thing? What do you do to male to okay?
Not being able to fully customise my blog. I can’t be fully myself because always imagine my blog looking a certain way and am fairly limited.
How long does it take you to create/find pictures to use?
Not that long, I don’t use many pictures on my blog. I probably should start doing so 🙂
Who’s your book crush?
Just one. Hmmmm…. Levi from Fangirl.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
Rainbow Rowell!! No doubt about it. Most of my favourite contemporary reads are written by her. She is one of my auto-buy authors.
What do you wear when you write your blog?
I usually blog at night or whenever I have free time during the day so PJs 🙂
How long does it take you to prepare?
It takes me about an hour or so to prepare a post. Formatting and getting images, linking everything and such.
How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?
I think it’s an awesome community. It allows you to be able to be more engaged in the book community in general. It’s one of the ways that I find new books to read, and also everyone can be themselves in the blogging community.
What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?
Post what you want, be yourself, engage with your fellow bloggers and have fun!
Who do you tag?
The Book Sacrifice Tag was created by Ariel Bissett and I was tagged by Bri @ Paperback Bri.
All of the things stated below are my personal thoughts and opinions. You don’t have to agree with me, I don’t expect most people to for my answers 🙂
An Over-Hyped book
Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!
For this, I’m gonna go with The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I want into it with high expectations and I don’t think it needed that much hype. 🙊
Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
The first that comes to mind is Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I don’t feel is was as good as the first book. There are a bunch of sequels that I thought of as well but this is the only one I would sacrifice.
Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionised literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What classic did you chuck?
I don’t read many classics. Though one classic I will always feel a bit 😑 and this is simply because of school.
Your least favourite book of life!
Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?
I would have to go with Gone by Michael Grant. I went into the series expecting a lot but it went down hill. It went down hill fast. Not to mention those covers with the teenage people.
And that concludes the tag. I now tag:
I was tagged by the lovely Mariana @ Book Is Glee to do the Historical Book Tag, created by Daniel @ How To Read Books. (click the links to check out their posts). Thank you to Mariana for tagging me! 😊

The Most glamorous book you have ever read
Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.
Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.
As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.
That plot pretty much says it all
The best leader within a book and why
hmm.. no surprise with my answer here. Harry was a great leader, particularly in Order of the Phoenix when Dumbledore’s Army was formed. He was independent and strong and stood up when they needed his help.
the most ruthless book dictator
I’m gonna agree with Mariana here and say Joffrey from Game of Thrones. Because…Joffrey. Just- UGH
the character who brought about the most change, or had the most personal development
Neville’s transformation throughout the Harry Potter series was AMAZING
QUEEN ELIZABETH II
YOUR MOST FAVOURITE MEMBER OF A ROYAL FAMILY FROM WITHIN A BOOK
The kookiest, craziest, most bonkers book characters ever!
Magnus Bane from the Shadowhunter World and Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
The most betraying character of all the characters
I cannot tell you how mad I was when she did what she did (no spoilers, though I’m pretty sure everyone knows)
