The Name-full Book Tag

Woohoo, my first tag! I was tagged by Danielle (check out her blog!) to do this. Okay, not tagged directly. She just tagged anyone who plays guitar. I am proud to be qualified 😉

Here we go…

 

  1. What is your current read, last read, and a book you want to read next?

A Time to Speak, by Nadine Brandes; The Girl Who Could See, by Kara Swanson; and Storm, by Evan Angler.

  1. What book did everyone like but you hated?

Pride and Prejudice. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it either. Sure, there were some funny parts, but it wasn’t my type of book.

  1. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read but probably won’t?

There are many. Very many. Too many to count…

  1. What book are you saving for retirement?

Well, I haven’t really thought about this. Any book I would set aside for retirement wouldn’t help being consumed before that time.

  1. Last page: read it first or wait ‘til the end?

Wait until the end!!! It spoils everything if I know how the books ends. (confession: okay, I’ve read the last page of a book only twice, because the book wasn’t good enough in my opinion to continue so I just skipped to the end)

  1. Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink or interesting aside?

Since I became serious about writing, I really like to read about who the author has to thank for making the book happen. Sometimes I don’t realize just how many people are involved in the publishing of one book.

  1. Which book character would you switch places with?

This is a hard question. We all know book characters’ lives are terrible for the most part. Does it count if I pick a character from one of my own books? 😉 I’ll pick Kaylee, from my superhero WIP. Because, well, who wouldn’t want to be a superhero? 😀

  1. Do you have a book that reminds you of a specific something in your life (place, person, time?)

My Sergeant Reckless book will always remind me of where I bought it, the BreyerFest in Kentucky. Also, all the books I bought at the Realm Makers conference will remind me of my time there. 🙂

  1. Name that book that you acquired in an interesting way.

The most interesting way I acquired a book (or bookzzzz) was at the Realm Makers conference.

  1. Have you ever given a book away to a special person for a special reason?

I don’t think that I’ve ever given away a book before.

  1. What book has been with you the most places?

I take my Bible whenever I travel. So that’s probably been with me the most places.

  1. Any “required reading” you hated in high school but wasn’t that bad later?

I don’t usually read books twice, but I didn’t have high hopes for Pride and Prejudice (I had to read it for literature). I know, despite what I said answer #2, it was better than I expected.

  1. Used or brand new?

Brand new for sure. I’ll settled with slightly used sometimes. I like my books in excellent condition. 😉

  1. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Mmmmm…no.

  1. Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?

Not that I recall. Books are better. 😉

  1. Have you ever read a book that made you hungry, cookbooks included?

Flipping through cookbooks always makes me hungry. So does any description of food in fiction. No one book specifically.

  1. Who is the person who’s book advice you’ll always take?

Almost anyone really. But especially my close friends and family members.

  1. Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g., outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?

Swipe (by Evan Angler) was my first sci-fi/futuristic/dystopian book. I discovered that I love this genre!

 

There you have it! I had a lot of fun with this tag. Since Danielle tagged guitar players, I will tag piano players. 😉 Have fun with it!

Write on,

Chat with me in the comments! What’s your last and next read? Did you discover a new genre that you love?
