TAG : SUMMER GOALS BOOK TAG

Untitled.png

So, Summer is almost over where I live. But that doesn’t mean I’ll miss out the chance on doing this fun tag! Thanks to Ashley for tagging me in this! I’m sorry for my delayed take on this tag, though.

A Series You Plan on Finishing by the End of the Summer

The Mistborn series probably. It’s a series I’ve been wanting to pick up for more than a year now.

A Romance You Plan on Reading by the End of the Summer

There are a lot of romances on my TBR. But I’m looking forward to Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E. Ann. It comes out at the end of September.

 

A New Release You Really Want to Read

I’m planning on starting Well Met by Jen DeLuca soon. Fingers crossed I like it!

A Bookish Goal You Want to Accomplish

For now, finish the 8 or so ARCs still waiting on my Netgalley list, and not send requests for any more ARCs in the meantime.

A Non-Bookish Goal You Set for Yourself for the Summer

To learn swimming! I’ve just started swimming classes. It’s about time I get over my fear of water.

Read on the Beach or in a Park?

Both. I’m not discriminate about places when reading. All I need is some quiet and calm around me for that.

Go-To Summer Read: Cute Romance or Thriller?

Cute romances all the way!

What’s Your Biggest Dream/Goal in Life?

One thing I’ve realized in life is that nothing goes according to plans. So no, I just want to be happy whatever I end up doing!


I won’t be tagging anyone this time, but feel free to do the tag if you’re interested. Do let me know in the comments if you’re gonna do it!

 

TAG : 20 QUESTIONS BOOK TAG

Tag Time! Brianna tagged me to do this a while ago. I’ve been meaning to do this but just couldn’t find the time! I miss doing tags and really enjoyed doing this one. The questions were really creative!

Untitled


1. How many books are too many in a series?

I’ve read series with 10 books and wanted more. I’ve also read duets which I felt would’ve been better off as a single book. If there’s a story to tell, I am fine with as many books needed to wrap it up nicely.

As long as I don’t feel that the writer is just churning out new books in a series just for commercial reasons, and doesn’t take ages between each book *cough* GRRM *cough*, I don’t mind.

2. How do you feel about cliffhanger endings?

I think if a book can wrap up its own solitary arc, and a cliffhanger is there just to give a glimpse of what’s waiting for us in the next book, I’m fine with it. But if it leaves you with none of your initial questions for the book answered, then it’s a big no.

3. Hardback or paperback?

Both! I have a weakness for hardbacks. But paperbacks are easy to carry when I’m traveling. And I always feel  like something’s missing if I don’t carry a book with me when I’m holidaying!

4. Favorite book?

How do you even answer that? But if I had to really choose one, I’d just choose the Harry Potter series because they’re what started it all for me!

5.  Least Favorite book?

Veronica Roth’s Allegient, maybe?

6. Love triangles : yes or no?

No. Unless they’re written really compellingly. And that rarely happens.

7. The most recent book you couldn’t finish?

Well, I did lose my interest through one-third of Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. Although I plan to get back to it, I’m still a little disappointed because I was looking forward to it and wasn’t as taken by it as I thought I’d be.

8. A book you’re currently reading?

Valencia and Valentine.

9. Last book you recommended?

All the pretty monsters.

10. Oldest book you’ve read?

The only book I can think of is The Quran.

11. Newest book you’ve read?

Fix Her Up.

12. Favorite author?

There are many. But I’ve been craving Jane Austen recently. So I’ll say her name!

13. Buying books or borrowing?

I prefer buying. Borrowing can be stressful. And yet the easy option.

14. A book that you disliked that everyone seems to love?

Any book by John Green or Colleen Hoover.

15. Bookmarks or dog ears?

The blasphemy! Bookmarks. Although I’m pretty good at remembering the page I’m in and don’t need either of these.

16. A book that you always reread?

Harry Potter. But I have a knack for rereading any book that I like.

17. Can you read while listening to music?

Yep.

18. One POV or multiple POVs?

One POV. Because if I happen to dislike the character with another POV, I tend to not pay as much attention to the story when they’re narrating. And sometimes, I like to be kept guessing about the intentions of the other characters. It keeps things interesting.

19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

One sitting. In fact, I rarely start a new book if I don’t have the time at hand to finish it soon.

20. Who do you tag?

Sara, Alyssa, Mogsy, and anyone who’s interested to do it!


 

TAG : TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE #2

Hello you all! I’m late to do this. Rebecca had tagged me to do this more than a month ago! I’ve been busy catching up with my ARCs in the last month, and got derailed on the tags. Anyways, this is a really fun tag and I’m more than happy to revisit it again! So, a big thank you to Rebecca. Do make sure to check out her lovely blog!

Rules

  • Create a post with your two bookish truths and one bookish lie – but be sure to keep it a secret so your readers can guess
  • Reveal the lie in a spoiler at the bottom of your post (you can use this HTML code:
    <details><Summary>Reveal the Lie</Summary>Lie Revealed</details>

    ) (just change the S in summary and D in detail to lower case!)

  • Tag 8 friends to play along
  • Link back to the original post (Kaleena wants to see ALL of your secrets)

Two Truths and A Lie

  • I’ve read the A Song of Ice & Fire series
  • I am more than ahead on track for my Goodreads reading challenge 2019 (100 books)
  • I’ve never visited a book or literary convention

 



I’ve read the A Song of Ice & Fire series

Reveal the Lie

So since this is my second time doing this, I’m gonna take the lazy way out and not tag anyone. But please feel free to do this if you find it fun!


But did you guess it right? Let me know!

TAG : THE ZODIAC CHALLENGE

Sara tagged me for the Zodiac Challenge. While I don’t believe in zodiacs but I still like to have fun with them. Moreover, this challenge is Disney movie themed. Who can say no to that?

The one thing I learned from this tag is that Sara hates being late and isn’t a big fan of Alice in the Wonderland. Well, I guess that makes two things!


Rules:

  • tag the creators @bookprincessreviews
  • share one thing you learned about the person who tagged you
  • for each prompt say who matches your zodiac and if they fit your personality/likes/dislikes
  • tag at least two other bloggers you want to get to know better

WHO AM I?

Moana! I’m not as adventurous as Moana. Nor am I as headstrong. But I have a fear of disappointing my family just like her.

WHO DO I LOVE?

Prince Charming! That works, I guess. Because he’d be committed to me just after one meeting. And what girl doesn’t want a committed guy? I’m also loyal to the fault!

WHO’S MY BEST FRIEND?

Pegasus! Pegasus is an extremely protective friend. That works for me because even I have a strong sense of protectiveness towards my friends.

WHAT’S MY BIGGEST WEAKNESS?

Doctor Facilier. I’ll be honest. I watched The Princess & The Frog ages ago and although I remember the villain, I couldn’t remember his name. Meh! But I do also remember that he was a cunning and power hungry. I’m neither. But I am afraid of being powerless or helpless like him. So I guess that’s my weakness!

I had fun doing this! So if you wanna try it too, go ahead and let me know!

TAG : FAVORITE MUSIC

The lovely Tales of a Bookworm tagged me to list some of my favorite music. Also, please make sure to send some love her way, she is ill and has been feeling blue!

Here’s to hoping that she recovers soon!

Also, asking me to name my favorite music is like asking me about my favorite book. I have so many of them that it’s tough to narrow them down to a few. So I’ll just tell you guys about some of the songs I’ve been religiously listening to recently. I guess they reflect the sort of mood I’ve been in myself.


Damien Rice – It takes a lot to know a man

 

Cigarettes After Sex – Apocalypse

 

Ray LaMontagne – Empty

Joni Mitchell – A case of you

Leonard Cohen – A thousand Kisses Deep


I’m not gonna tag anyone. But I’d really like to learn about the songs you’ve been recently enjoying? Make sure to hit in the comments below!

TAG : POWER COUPLES BOOK TAG

I’m so glad that Sara @ bibliophagist tagged me in this post. Power couples are my weakness. But I forgot that the problem with having read a lot of romances is a lot of couples fit the bill. So I’m just gonna go with my instinct here and choose the first couple that comes to mind.

Fan Arts not mine.


A COUPLE THAT SHARES BIG PASSIONS AND GOALS

Rhys & Feyre ( A Court Of Thorns and Roses Series)

What can be a bigger passion and goal than establishing peace and all that jazz?

 

 

 

 

 

A COUPLE THAT LOVE AND RESPECT EACH OTHER

Kate & Curran (Kate Daniels Series)

Seeing Kate and Curran’s relationship start and evolve throughout six books into the a strong one where they share so much mutual love and respect for each other was very rewarding.

 

 

 

 

A COUPLE THAT IS STRONGER TOGETHER THAN APART


Rose & Connor (Calloway Sisters Series)

These two are the definition of a power couple. They are strong on their own but when they are together, they are simply indomitable.

 

 

 

 

 

A COUPLE THAT WHOLLY SUPPORT EACH OTHER

Sarai & Lazlo (Strange the Dreamer Duology)

I love how Sarai and Lazlo are such pillars of strength for each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A COUPLE THAT IS GENUINELY CUTE TOGETHER

Lily & James (Harry Potter)

I’ve always found the idea of Lily and James so cute! Let’s just ignore the end but their whole love story is adorable. I really wish we could see more of their story in Hogwarts.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I’m not gonna tag anyone this time. If you feel like doing this too, consider yourself tagged!
