Catching up on recent book tags, and hence the second tag in a row ;D
Thanks for Faith and Sarah over at Sublime Reads for nominating me for this award (technically called the Sisterhood of the World Book Tag but also I technically can’t be a sister. Sorry) and an even bigger shoutout to them for giving me actual interesting, fun to do questions. Huge, philosophical life questions such as: Narwhal or Unicorn? (Narwhal btw but you’ll find out enough soon).
If you had to advertise your blog to a stranger using only one sentence and either the word “star”, “ketchup”, or “my brother’s/sister’s [insert noun]”, what would your sentence be?
Okay I’ve spent a while thinking about this and I’ve realised that the only way I can do this question justice is if I do a sentence including all three words/phrases. And that sentence is:
If my brother’s favourite star in the galaxy ate past-expiry-date ketchup, it would spit out this blog.
I’m actually so happy with that response. Onto question 2!
Real-life narwhals or magical unicorns?
Narwhals, because narwhals are weird and mysterious and can impale you if they want to but unicorns are too kind and would probably heal you if you accidentally threw yourself onto their horn in a fit of despair.
If you were in the Hunger Games with all the fictional characters that you despised the most, what would be your initial reaction?
Hehehehe… hehe. This is my favourite question out of the whole batch. And it’s great, because the Hunger Games is such a great excuse to kill someone without going into jail. The following characters are in no particular order.
Clary Fray: I would take a paperback of her autobiography and slap this girl fifty billion times until the skin started peeling off her face and she died of pain and blood loss (… that turned out more gory than I expected). You know why this is appropriate? Because when you slap everybody for saving your life, it doesn’t make you a strong, independent woman, it makes you a deranged psycho. Oh and what’s that? You ask about her autobiography? This:
Mrs Trunchbull: This evil thing needs to be imprisoned into a rotten tree trunk until she died of starvation with only one leg left because the bats nibbled away at the other. (This is sure getting violent… hehehe.)
Nathaniel Sorrows: Not going to say what book he’s from, due to spoilers (google him if you wish), but damn I have never hated a book character as much as I hate this disgusting excuse of a man. DISGUSTING. Any death is not good enough for this man.
Have you heard of/watched Korean dramas? There really are some great ones out there! So if you answered no, in the off-chance that you were absolutely free from work, would you give one a shot? If yes, which one is your favourite?
No I don’t watch Korean dramas. I feel like I should start though. I watch enough anime already though.
Make up a short summary for a debuting novel titled, “The 5th Save”!
By the 5th time Dylan has drawn Marie from the dark and murky depths of the Targorie Beach, saving her life yet again, he’s sure that at this point, she’s just purposely attempting to drown so her can save her. Surely there are less dramatic ways of flirting.
The tale of two star[fish] crossed lovers, The 5th Save is a poignant and beautiful story about young love, falling in love, and how to flirt while drowning.
Quick: Say “Irish wristwatch” 5 times fast! Could you do it? 😛
Me: Irish wish was, I wish ris wash, Irish rish watch, I wish ris rosh, Irish wrist wrosh.
Mum: Hey, are you okay there?
Me: Yeah I’m fine thanks. Just committing verbal seppuku.
What would you do if you became your favourite fictional character for a day? (Either in their world or in the real world. Or you could do both!)
I’m basing this not on my favourite character but on the character it would be best to be (I mean, Katniss Everdeen’s arena is hardly a good place for me to be). So Harry Potter is the obvious next choice. I would probably spend all day in the library though.
You accidentally time-traveled back into the time of dinosaurs! If you had a choice of either immediately returning home or staying (to study them as much as you can and to be the first modern day dinosaur witness!) and learning to survive for at least 2 years, which one would you pick?
Pfft. Immediately return home. Obviously. I can’t even go ten minutes of no internet without a mental breakdown.
Here is a classic “would you rather”: Would you rather have a spray that could make all of your books waterproof or have one book of your choice with the ablility to fangirl/boy along with you while you read?
THE SPRAY. Coz then I could take my books basically everywhere. I could go scuba diving and be reading. I could have a shower and be reading. I could go swimming and be reading. And most importantly, I can protect my books from my tears.
If you could only say one sentence to Harry Potter, what would it be? (If you already answered this from our last awards post, answer it again! Or you could just say the same thing you did last time… no worries!)
I’d just end up joining on a whole lot of sentences to the things I would want to ask him and passing it off as one sentence. Like:
Hi Harry Potter, I think you’re a great person and a great wizard, and you’re also pretty good at casting spells, although Hermione is better than you, and also, while we’re on the topic of spell casting, how do you cast a spell, because I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time but I always have trouble due to this damn non-magic world I live in, which – I know right, it’s so annoying and – oh I have another thing to ask you as well, have you ever woken up some days and stolen some makeup from Hermione to cover that lightning scar, say on prom or anything, coz I’m sure it would make you feel self conscious right, and also…
You get the point. It’s technically one sentence.
You know what I’ve decided to do? I’ve decided not to tag a specific group of people.
Instead, I’m going to tag you.
Yep, you right there, sitting there in your PJs reading my blog. Do you have a blog too? Well then, consider yourself tagged. Drop me a comment, please, if you’re doing it!
- Spicy food. Yay or nay?
- What do YA books need more of? (Insert rant)
- You are in the Hunger Games with the three characters you hate the most. What do you do (just had to steal this one off Faith, it was way too good)
- Super hot or super cold?
- On a scale of one to ten, how much do you hate people who say: “Bob and me” rather than “Bob and I”
- How many times in your life have you worn a horse mask (google it)?
- Name one book that is a strong independent book who ain’t need no man.
- Open up 50 Shades of Grey to a random page and post the first thing you see. If you don’t have it, open up the book you’re currently reading (50SOG is funnier though)
- On a scale of one to ten, how likely are you to feed non-Harry Potter fans to hungry pigs? (Hungry pigs will completely digest a human body in about an hour – hair and all and don’t ask me how I know this)
- Explain why Harry Potter didn’t just drink good luck potion and go kill Voldemort.
