Harry Potter You’re Not Good Enough Tag

Because I haven’t done enough Harry Potter tags, am I right?

Just kidding! You can never have enough Harry Potter tags! HUGE thanks to Kay at Hammock of Books for tagging me. I know that it’s been approximately a million years, but I’m finally getting around to it, and thank goodness because this tag is SO MUCH FUN! Now excuse me while I try find 30 small pieces of paper… Or maybe I can do this in a spreadsheet?

Rules:

  • Write 30 character names on pieces of paper.
  • Put them in a jar/mug/cup.
  • Randomly choose two pieces of paper for every question. In each of the 15 questions, you have to decide which of the two characters fits the question and which one is not good enough.

I tried to do all female characters, because why not?, but it was REALLY HARD. Gee, who realized HP was so male-centric? So some of these people are a little random! Oh well, just makes it more fun!

Winky vs. Parvati Patil

Oh god, not Winky. She barely speaks understandable English, and I can’t image anyone bothers teaching house elves to read and write. I don’t think Parvati is probably a particularly good speller either, but she’s got to be better than Winky.

“No Ideas But in Things”

A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it

the seven husbands of evelyn hugo

The cover designer completely nailed this one. I love the color, I love this pose from Evelyn. This cover caught my eye and then the writing caught my heart. Continue reading

Frozen Book Tag

Frozen Book Tag

I saw this tag on Book Princess Reviews, and it’s right up my ally. Frozen might be my favorite Disney movie. I love the music, I love Anna, I love the sisterhood theme, I love how it kind of makes fun of the old Disney movies. Did I mention I love the music? When we went to see it in theaters and we heard the intro-song my husband and I looked at each other and said “We may as well leave, it’s not going to get any better than that.” Then it DID.

Anyway, I love Frozen.

This tag was created by Book’s Buzz way back in 2014. So here we go!


Let it Go

A book you wouldn’t mind parting with

41zqDXuSQEL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_That’s easy! Last year around Christmas-time I got gifted The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I read it last summer and it was not my cup of tea. Next time I clean out my bookshelf it’ll probably go the Half-Price. Continue reading

Naughty or Nice Tag

share-img

Thanks to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in this fun Christmas tag! While I am, of course, always on the nice list, it’ll be fun to see how my book habits stack up in Santa’s eyes.

THE RULES

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you.
  • Tag and link Jenniely’s post, for she’s love to read everyone’s answers!
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done (ticks = naughty, crosses = nice)
  • Tag another 10 people.

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it

Actually… yes.

I don’t usually request ARCs, but last year when I was a fledgeling book blogger and requesting ARCs seemed like something I might never be able to aspire to, I got excited about the possibilities and requested Broken Branches from indie publishing house Hideaway Fall (who I am starting to suspect is really just M. Jonathan Lee self-publishing but trying to be fancy…). Since then I’ve come to the conclusion that ARCs aren’t something I want to pursue, but nobody told Hideaway Fall, and so they sent me Drift Stumble Fall this past summer. Which I was not particular interested in. I left in in a Little Free Library.

90s Movie Tag

I saw this tag oh so many months ago on The Bibliphagist, and I just looooooove 90s movies so much that I bookmarked it for a rainy day. And since I’m feeling like a tag this evening, here we go!

She’s All That

An odd pairing, but they still fit perfectly

26042767I mean, like, every couple in The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet! It’s kind of the point of the book, that it explores how relationships might become more complex if we discover more life out there, and how that will re-define what we think of as a weird relationship. Like, how do inter-species couplings work? What about how different planets have different ways of thinking about family and relationships? Can you have a relationship with a computer? It’s all so BRILLIANT, but it’s also touching and relatable, and GAH! Read it! Continue reading

The Mid-Autumn Festival Tag

So after apparently tagging The Orangutan Librarian in half a million tags while they were away for a few months, I have been tagged back with the Mid-Autum tag! I figured I’d better get to this one ASAP, because we’ve apparently used up our two days of fall for 2018 already. We’ve dropped into 40 degree weather, and I don’t have a winter coat yet because my dog ate mine last winter, and APPARENTLY the department stores don’t have their coats in yet. Not that I’m upset about that or anything…

Okay, deep breaths.

So, anyway, thanks to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me! And away I go!

Reunion of Family

A Book with Family Goals

71LkLmxqgjLThis might be a little awkward, but I’m going with Eleanor & Park because I love how Park’s parents are still so mushy gushy in love after all those years! I hope that when we’re in our forties my husband and I are still flirting with each other and kissing in front of the kids and generally being embarrassing. ❤ Continue reading

Witch

A magical character or book

51HSkTKlauL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_Ah, finally, an opportunity this month to bring up Harry Potter! lol

Seriously though, this book is so magical! At least for my generation there are so many people who hated reading, and then they read Harry Potter and fell in love with books. If that isn’t magic, then I don’t know what is! They’re so wonderful that I can re-read them as an adult and not feel annoyed by the childishness because they aren’t childish. And there’s always something new to discover. I can only assume J.K. Rowling is actually some kind of witch. Continue reading
