I created my own tag! 😀 Tags are seriously one of the most fun things in the universe.
(I’m totally not sure how tags get started, so I just figured someone had to create one and just tag people, so here goes…correct me if I am wrong.)
- Thank and link back to the person who tagged you (thank you, me)
- Link back to the creator of the tag-www.jennaterese.com (also me 😛 )
- Tag at least five sweet other bloggers. <3
- Add your own question to the end with your favorite treat. 😉 Let your nominees know that they should pick 7 questions out of all of them to do (but yours included). That way the tag won’t get super-duper long with people adding their questions. 🙂
Here’s the questions!
1. OREOS. A book or series you couldn’t get enough of.
The Swipe series by Evan Angler. With this series I discovered I love sci-fi/futuristic fiction, and these books were so good! Great world-building and suspense on every page. I also loved any Nadine Brandes book.
2. LOLLIPOPS. A book you enjoyed as a little kid.
I had this tiny book of poems (mentioned in another tag) that I used to carry around with me literally everywhere. It got so worn that I had to hold it together with tape. 🙂
3. SOUR PATCH KIDS. A book that reading once was enough.
Bell Mountain by Lee Duigon. I wanted to like this series because I appreciated the Christian themes, but it just didn’t really connect with me. I felt like the character development could’ve been done better. And when I don’t fully connect with the characters, I don’t fully connect with the story.
4. M & Ms. A really long series you liked.
The Kingdom series and Knights of Arrethtrae series by Chuck Black. I’ve read those both at least three times, and I don’t usually read books more than once.
5. KING-SIZED KIT KAT. A really long book you liked.
I actually don’t really own a really long book, but one of the longest books I’ve read lately was Fawkes.
6. THREE MUSKATEERS. Your favorite trilogy.
I’ve only completed one trilogy, the Out of Time series by Nadine Brandes. The MC, Parvin is the most relatable character I’ve ever read about. 🙂
7. ALMOND JOY. A book that most people didn’t like, but you did (or vise versa).
Pride and Prejudice. Most of my friends really like the Jane Austen books, but they’re really not my type of book. I prefer action-packed adventures. 😉
And there you have it! And now I am seriously craving some Oreos…
(to my Australian blogger: I hope you have some of the same candy as the U.S. or some of these might not mean anything to you 😉 )
Oh, if any of you would like to steal this tag, you have my permission 😉 (#breakingmyownrules)
Now, what happened with NaNoWriMo…
Long story short, I didn’t reach 50k.
That’s right, I didn’t even reach halfway. To be honest, November didn’t go like I thought it might. With this being my senior year of high-school, there’s just so much to do, so 2018 may not have been the best year to attempt this for the first time.
But I’m not super disappointed about it. I am a little disappointed that this month didn’t go like I’d hoped, but as for my word count, I’m totally fine with it. Because I got way more writing done in a month than I would have otherwise. And I’m really enjoying this novel too. I was afraid I was going to come out of nano hating it, but I don’t. Which is more important to me than reaching the 50k word count goal. 🙂
So anyway, my total ending word count was 16,516 words. Tell me in the comments about how nano went for you, and what your ending word count was. 😉
What’s your favorite candy? What’s your favorite series? What book are you loving right now? How did NaNo go for you?
