It's BOOK TAG TIME! :D
So, if you don't know, Team Epic Reads (subpart of HarperCollins) started this awesome book tag, and I'm going to take part of it.
"But don't you have to be tagged to do it?" someone in the back asks.
Excellent question! Yes, you do! But funny thing, because I was sort of tagged by Kiera Cass (author of the Selection series). Well, actually, she tagged everyone that watched her book tag video. Which includes me. The only thing is that I'm doing a blog post rather than a video like the rest of the world, because a) I suck at videos and b) I don't have a good camera.
So, without further ado, let's get started!
1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
Oh boy. Probably Sara Raash, author of Snow Like Ashes, and her main character Meira. What I would serve them, I haven't a clue. Probably something cold, as Meira is from the Kingdom of Winter. I'd suffer brain freeze, indefinitely.
2. What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?
I'd love to read a prequel to The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I mean, the series itself is a prequel series, but I really want to know about the younger versions of Will and Jem, before all the bad stuff happened to them.
3. Which two characters (not from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?
Well. This is ridiculously hard for me, mainly because I can't bare to break couples. But maybe...Jasper Renn from Kady Cross's Steampunk Chronicles and Reyna from Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series. Okay, maybe they wouldn't make the best couple, but it would be interesting to see what happens if you threw them together. Or, better yet, how about I just become a fictional character so that I can ship myself with various other characters? Because I can name tons of characters I wouldn't mind getting together with...
4. If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
If I ran into Julie Kagawa on the subway, I would probably collapse from sheer excitement or just stare at her like a creeper. Meaning I wouldn't even be able to say anything to her. Besides, I'd probably say something super lame like "I love your books" or "I hate how I can't move on in life because of the characters in your books".
5. What book made you a reader and why?
I went through many stages of reading. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis was what first introduced me into the magic of books, but I didn't really pick up any books to read after that. Then I went through Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, but again, I didn't read anything else afterwards. The book that propelled me into my constant book-reading is probably Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
6. Incendio! If your bookshelf caught on fire, which book would you save?
NONE. I WOULD BURN WITH THEM.
7. Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?
*Bites lip* Well, seeing as the nature of dystopian books is to be sort of, you know, fatal in all ways, I'm going to have to go with The Giver by Lois Lowry. Mainly because there, no one's trying to kill me, and there isn't really any poverty for me to succumb into. Everyone's (sort of) happy. It would still suck, but at least I'd be living in ignorance, which is kind of good, I guess?
8. What is your most epic read of all time?
I think it's cute how you think I can only choose one. Because that. Isn't. Possible. You want me to choose between The Iron Queen and Rush? Make me choose Splintered or The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? The Young Elites or Killer Frost? City of Glass or Ignite Me? Are you insane?
9. Tag some friends to answer these questions.
I'm tagging anyone who reads this. It doesn't matter whether you're reading this 3 years from now or 5 minutes, I still want you to do one.
