I Dare You Book Tag

Image result for i dare you

I wasn’t tagged to do this but I saw Kirsty@kirstyreadsblog tag post and it looked a whole lot of fun. So here I am.

Rules
you must be honest
you must answer all the questions
you must tag at least 4 people

 

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

I haven’t read any of these books even though I have been told it’s better than the movie. I have watched the first 3 movies but for some reason not the last.

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next? 

The Roanoke GirlsThe BreakdownStrange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

Currently reading: The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel. 46% of the way through and I am so not sure yet.

Just Finished:The Breakdown by B.A.Paris. I really enjoyed this will let you know my thoughts in my wrap up.

Reading next: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. This book just came in at my library and I was first on the reservation list so I need to read ASAP.

3. What book did everyone like, but you hated?

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened

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

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

I keep telling myself I will but I am so intimidated by the size of the books and how many is in the series.

5. What book are you saving for retirement?

Jane Austen clothbound bookset,it was £63 but has now gone up to £92 – which I will never be able to afford.*sadface*

6. Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?

I have to wait till the end it makes it such a better read – when people tell me they read the end first,it makes me want to scream and shout in their faces….it’s not allowed ok.

8. Which book character would you switch places with?

This is a really hard question and a lot of the books I read have broken characters and have pretty shitty lifestyles.

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

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4  (Adrian Mole, #1)

When I was younger I would read this when I went over to my Grandma’s house and I absolutely loved it. I loved the diary format and now this just reminds me of my youth and my grandmas house.

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

Cutting for Stone

I found it on a wall!

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

A Tyranny of Petticoats (A Tyranny of Petticoats, #1)

I wasn’t overly impressed by the stories in this book and knew my friend wanted to read it…so I gave it to her.

12. Which book has been with you most places?

All the ones on my phone under the kindle app.Other than that I don’t carry books around.

13. Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

I honestly can’t remember that far back!

14. Used or brand new?

Both. I like buying from charity shops and using the library. I usually only buy brand new books that I know I am not going to find in either place.

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Nope. I think I would be confused…they sound confusing.

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

Yep, Matilda and also some people might hate me for this but Alice in Wonderland….I really didn’t like the book.

17. Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks included?

When We Collided

Yep, Jonah was a foodie and he would make all these delicious sounding meals making me constantly hungry.

18. Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?

I don’t really know any friends or family that read like I do but I always watch booksandlala or elenareadsbooks on youtube as they read similar books to me.

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

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

The TBR Book Tag

20160601_204053[1]

It’s about time I did another tag! I wasn’t tagged to do this but I saw Caitlyn@thriceread posted it earlier this week and I thought it looked like a lot of fun. So let’s get on with the questions.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I use Goodreads to list and all the books on my TBR and whatever is currently on my nightstand, oh and whatever needs to be read and reviewed on Netgalley….I don’t really keep track lol.

Is your TBR mostly print or E-book?

It’s a mixture of both actually, sometimes I manage to find good deals on Amazon  for kindle books and Netgalley is all E-books but I do love to read from a print book.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

Usually if they are ARCS I read by the date they need to be read by or whatever I have physically to hand.

Book that has been on your TBR the longest?

The Time Traveler's Wife – So many people have told me this is really good but I have never got round to reading it.

A book you recently added to your TBR?

Under Rose-Tainted SkiesThis sounds so good, Mental Health really interests me.

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

The Marvels – I don’t know if I am every going to read this but the whole book is just stunning.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend I am really not sure about this – plus its only got a 2.26 rating on Goodreads.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

Heartless It’s out soon and I am very excited about reading this.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)I should have read this by now,I mean I loved ACOTAR and ACOMAF by Sarah J Maas and everyone raves about this.

A book on your TBR you’re dying to read?

Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2) Obviously! I don’t think I need to explain why.

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

1600! Yes I know it’s bloody crazy but just over a year ago I added all the books from the 1001 to read before you die list and I have currently read 2 lol.

That was fun! It be great to see other people’s answers to this tag, so consider yourself tagged.Hopefully someone has a larger TBR pile than me

Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

Thanks to Sammie@booksandbiros I have been tagged to complete this…..um well…. TAG!.You should check out her blog if you haven’t done so already (it’s pretty awesome).

Now I am not a massive fan of zombies,I haven’t watch walking dead! But I have watched shawn of the dead and 28 days later! So I know a bit about them and I probably would die if an apocalypse happens, so I need to pick some decent characters to hopefully save my ass.

 

The Zombie Apocaylyse Book Tag was created by Nathan Hale and you can view the original video here.

The Rules:

  • Choose 5 books!
  • Randomly set up your books in order.
  • Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
  • Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them!
  • Cry at how screwed you are…

Ok so I picked 5 books off my bookshelf that I have already read, I didn’t have a massive selection to choose from as I have loads of unread books and I read a lot of library books or E-books. So here they are:

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)FangirlHarry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

Whisper to MeSiege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)

The Team:

THE FIRST PERSON TO DIE- ILLUMINAE

SGT TORRENCE – This is ok, I didn’t like the guy in the book, he made bad decisions…so I don’t think I would have wanted him on my team anyway.

Red Bull goodbye parkour i'm out running

THE PERSON YOU TRIP TO ESCAPE THE ZOMBIESAIDAN

Well I don’t know how I am supposed to trip a computer/AI….I suppose I could shut him down….But I don’t want to because he is clever.

THE PERSON THAT TRIPS YOU TO GET AWAY FROM THE ZOMBIES – FANGIRL

Cath – I wouldn’t expect this from Cath,she is a good girl but you never know how people change when they are faced with a life or death situation

THE TEAM IDIOTFANGIRL

Nick – he isn’t a major character, but he is a douche so he deserves team idiot.

THE BRAINS OF THE GROUPHARRY POTTER AND SORCERERS STONE

Neville Longbottom – ha ha ha ha this would be good if we could use Herbology to defeat the zombies.

THE TEAM MEDICHARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERERS STONE

Ron – I think I am pretty much screwed, especially if he has his broken wand. I think he would go pale and feel sick at every injury

 

THE WEAPONS EXPERTWhisper to me

PARIS – I don’t think giving a schizophrenic charge of weapons is a great Idea – though Paris is very knowledgeable so she can tell me how to use the guns and axes and anything else I can get my hands on.

THE TEAM’S BRAWLERWHISPER TO ME

CASSIE – With the evil voice inside her head she would be a proper little fighter, but the real cassie is sweet and innocent – so hopefully we get psycho cassie for the apocalypse.

THE FIRST TO TURN INTO A ZOMBIESIEGE AND STORM

Tamar – She is the protector of the sun summoner and pretty bad-ass – so if she turns into a zombie then I am officially dead

AND FINALLY, THE TEAM LEADER –  SIEGE AND STORM

Sturmhold – This is the best by far, he is a pirate we can sail away and he is pretty awesome.

So there it is…. I’m dead!My Zombie Apocalypse team is a non-starter really. Let’s just hope it never happens.
