The Great British Bake Off Book Tag

the-great-british-bake-off-book-tag

Okay, confession, I’ve never watched the Great British Bake Off. I don’t actually enjoy cooking reality shows. *GASP!* I don’t know, if I can’t taste the food myself I don’t really care what the judges think. They’re strangely addicting though, aren’t they? I was at the doctor last week, and some c-list baking show was on, and I was so distracted from my book because even though it was stupid I couldn’t stop paying attention.

Anyway, thanks to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in this one! Even though I’ve never watched the show, I found the questions interesting.

Rules:

Ready, get set, Bake! (or tag)


Amateur Baker

A book that is self published

Eragon_book_cover

I don’t technically know if Eragon even counts since it eventually got picked up by Knopf, but originally Paolini’s family created their own publishing “firm” just to publish Eragon. I adored Eragon in high school, because dragons. Even know, I don’t mind giving it a re-read from time to time, though I tend to ignore the sequels which are clearly less good.

The College Freshman Book Tag

Created by Little Blind Book Finds. View the original post here.

It’s been ten entire years since I was a freshman in college. Wow. It doesn’t feel like it. I’m not very good at this adulting thing… Anyway, but because I am a teacher and my husband works at a university, I don’t feel all that removed from the college experience, so this book tag really caught my attention. This should be fun!

Rules:

  1. Give credit to the creator. (That’s Little Blind Book Finds, y’all.)
  2. Answer the questions to the best of your ability! You don’t have to be in college or have gone to college to answer these!
  3. Tag three people to complete the tag.

 

The Roommate

Roommates can be a hit or miss experience freshman year, especially when you don’t get the opportunity to pick who you room with. Name a character you’d love to be roommates with and one you’d hate to be roommates with.

downloadThere are two book characters that I would have loved being roommates with in college. The first is Cath from Fangirl. Cath would be a great roommate because she is low-key, preferring to stay in rather than going out all hours of the night (just like me!), and low maintenance. She would be there to hang out with on a Friday night when everyone else was out partying, but if I needed some space she wouldn’t be desperate for my company. Plus, if we can just pretend Simon Snow is Harry Potter, than we could have been the biggest fangirls of all time together. I don’t know anyone else who loves Harry Potter like I do! The other character who would be a great roommate is Sam Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings. If he took care of me the way he took care of Frodo, I would call myself one lucky hobbit.

I would absolutely never ever want to be roommates with Draco Malfoy. He’s a jerk, he’s a racist, and I would get tired of hearing him talk about himself all the time. And even though his mom was always sending him sweets, I bet he never shared. Continue reading “The College Freshman Book Tag”
