It’s been ages since I’ve had the chance to take part in a book tag – so I was overjoyed to see Never Trust a Book Nerd had tagged me to do the Liebster Award! Thank you 🙂
I think I’ve taken part in this tag before, but as the questions change each time, I thought why not take part again?
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
- Nominate 11 blogs.
- Give them 11 questions to answer.
What got you to start reading books?
My parents are probably the reason I started reading – after all, it’s just something I’ve always done. However, I started reading YA after I loved the amazing All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven!
What’s the best book-to-movie adaptation you’ve seen so far?
Oh my gosh, that’s a really hard question. I think it’ll have to be The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 as I think it explained the complicated events perfectly!
What is the best fanart of your favorite book?
That’s a really difficult question – I’ve seen so many – but I do really love this quote!
What’s your pet peeve when it comes to books?
I have a very niche pet peeve – novels where the protagonist is somehow ‘saved’ from their mental illness by falling in love. It just doesn’t work like that!
Who is your favorite character and why is it him/her?
That’s such a difficult one, but I have to say I always relate to Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I also find I’m very much like Claire from the Morganville series by Rachel Caine. Claire is so determined, but she still has a soft and emotional interior.
Hardcover or Paperback?
Ahh, this is so difficult. There were times when I’d have said hardback full stop, but now I love the feel of a paperback. I don’t think I could choose either, because I like them both for different reasons!
If you could bring a character back from death, who would it be?
*SPOILER ALERT (ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES)* I have to say Finch, but then again, the book wouldn’t be what it is without the ending it had. *END OF SPOILER*
Do you own any bookish merchandise? Show us some of your favorites, please.
I do! I own many, many bookmarks, pins, bags and posters from numerous events – but some of my favourites are the 2 big posters in the back of this photo! I got them from YALC last year, and my room wouldn’t be the same without them.
If you could turn a book into a movie, which one would you film?
Caraval by Stephanie Garber. Hands down, I want to see that one on film. I’d also love to make a trailer for it!
If you could change an ending of a book, which ending would you change and why?
Ahh, maybe Paper Towns by John Green. I’d like to see a spark, please 😛
Do you have any signed books? If so, which ones? If not, which ones would you like to get signed?
