Hey I’m back with another tag from Joey of Thoughts and Afterthoughts. Again, thank you for tagging me! Check his blog, guys, it’s full of amazing stuff.
So I figured tags are fun and consumes less time than writing a book discussion so I might as well do them while school is not yet an issue to keep this blog going on for a while.
Let’s do this.
A Character’s Appearance You Misread or Imagined Differently
Nick from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! THIS IS NOT A SPOILER. I just thought that he will be a lot nicer as the story progresses and I kept hoping! And I’m still hoping! But we didn’t need him much so I’m not gonna lose some sleep over him.
A Character Name You’ve Been Pronouncing Incorrectly
Oh God only knows how many names I’ve butchered in the past. But my favorite ones are Carlisle from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. For 3 books I said CAR-LI-SEL. Another one is Hermione Granger, but not the Hermione! THE GRANGER. I said it like ganger with an R. I feel like such a potato sometimes.
An Overused Trope That Is Your Guilty Pleasure
I’m gonna be honest. I did google the word trope so I’m not even sure if I’m using it right but I’m gonna try anyway. THIS IS A GUILTY PLEASURE. EMPHASIS ON GUILTY. I’m just a sucker for those stories where a girl chases the guy and then he ignores her and then he falls and then she ignores him cause he was an ass. I like those. Yeah, go figure.
A Cliched Character Type You Enjoy Viewing On Screen Than Reading About
High school mean girls. I mean, they’re a lot bitchier in books and I hate them and it doesn’t make sense for them to exist at all but somehow in movies, it feels kinda normal and acceptable.
A Word/Phrase You Learned Because of Its Use In A Book
English is not my mother language that means I learned basically half of my English vocabulary in reading books. My first big (for me) word that I learned through context clues is the word incredulous and I got it back from the Twilight days. My favorite word that I learned though is sanguine. And my fave phrase/sentence is “the elephant is in the room”
Have You Ever Not Read or Completed a Required Reading Book For School
Nope. In the Philippines, we barely get books to read and discuss, mostly we get assigned short stories and poems so when we do have a novel to read, I read them with vigor.
Have You Ever (Or Wanted To) Skipped A Chapter From the POV of a Character You Weren’t Interested In
I have not but I really really wanted to skip Jayson’s POV in the Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. I’m not his biggest fan to be honest and instead of Jason parts I wish we had Percabeth parts! That would be just awesome.
Have You Ever Cancelled Social Plans To Read A Book
Yes. But don’t tell my friends. I’m a dead girl if you do.
SO THAT’S FUN! I hope you enjoyed my answers and I wish to read your answers to these questions too. I’m sure they’re awesome!
Guys, I tag anyone who wants to be tagged because honestly, I’m shy to tag anyone because I feel like a newbie here and like I have yet to reach that kind of relationship with other bloggers, so if you want to do it, consider yourself tagged!
Share the feels!
