Reader Confessions Book Tag

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-15-09-pm

So I have seen this tag a couple times now and I have decided to do it as I haven’t done a tag in a while.


Questions:

Have you ever damaged a book?

Not on purpose, but I have by accident and it killed me inside!

Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?

I have never borrowed a book from anyone as none of my friends are interested in reading… I also have only ever borrowed 1 book from a library and being a library book they aren’t exactly the best quality anyway…

How long does it take you to read a book?

It depends on what the book is. I can read a book in a day or 2 if I’m really enjoying it and it’s not huge… Whereas something like a LOTR book took about a week… It also depends on how much I’m liking the book!

Books that you haven’t finished?

There is only actually 1 book that I started but didn’t finish and that is Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I just couldn’t get into it and I couldn’t keep track of the characters half the time.

Hyped popular books that you don’t like?

Well, I don’t know if this really fits as there has been very mixed reviews about this book! But there has been a tonne of hype for this book!
I’m talking about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I really didn’t like it and if you want to know my thoughts I have a full review that can be found here.

harry-potter-cursed-child-final-cover

If there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?

No there isn’t…

How many books do you own?

I own 84 physical books, 72 iBooks and  11 audiobooks

Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?

It again depends on if I am enjoying the book or not!

Do you like to buddy read?

I have never participated in a buddy read, so I have no idea.

Do you read better in your head or out loud?

I don’t like reading out loud, so I always read in my head!

If you were only allowed to own one book, what one and why?

How dare you! This is really going to kill me! I am going to choose Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I would actually choose the whole series if I could, but since I can only choose 1, I am simply choosing the first in the series! I am picking Harry Potter as the copies I own are the original UK Bloomsbury children’s editions which you can’t purchase anymore and it’s my favourite series!


I tag everyone that hasn’t done it already!

If you have done it, send me the link in the comments!

Friday Finds – 23rd September

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-28-43-pm

This meme allows you to post the books that you have found or discovered this week and added to your To Read pile. This can include books you discover online, bookstores or libraries and you don’t have to have purchased the books.

I found the original creator but it has been passed on to other blogs and the one that is meant to be the most recent hasn’t posted in months, so that’s why I haven’t linked any blogs!


I haven’t been on Goodreads or Youtube much this week, so I only have 2 books to share that I discovered this week.


Well, I think this is the shortest post I have ever done..

Let me know if you have read either of these books and what you thought of them! Also feel free to link to your Friday Finds post!

Book Travelling Thursday – Book That You Think Should Be A Classic In A Few Years

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-34-39-pm

Book Travelling Thursday is a weekly meme created by Danielle and Cátia. All you have to do is a pick a book that is related to the theme, the themes are announced on the Goodreads page. Once you have chosen a book you need to find the original cover, the covers from your country, your favourite cover and your least favourite cover.

So this week’s theme is: Choose a book that you think it should be a classic in a few years. So I am choosing the Harry Potter series, I know my last post was one of the Harry Potter books, but I already consider this book a Classic. I don’t know if it already is or not, but it should be!


Original Cover:

harry-potter-books-full-set

Cover from my Country:

Australia doesn’t have a specific Harry Potter cover as we get mostly the UK editions

Favourite Covers:

harry-potter-covers

This is the iBook/Kindle editions. I love the iBook/Kindle editions that were recently updated to these beautiful covers when they added the illustrations and extra info to the digital editions.

kkl10ts

These are the original Bloomsbury Children’s editions and they are gorgeous. I love the illustrations and they are also the copied I own.

rowlingcoverreveal5

This is the 15th Anniversary edition.  These are also just gorgeous! Out of all of the covers that I don’t own this is the one I want the most!! I love the spines of these! It’s such an awesome idea! The covers are also really beautiful and I love the illustrations!

Least Favourite:

collage_fotordcs_fotorhhj

These are the new UK Bloomsbury editions. I don’t like the illustrations, especially of the characters. I don’t know what it is but I really don’t like it. The only one I like is the Prisoner of Azkaban cover and that’s because I like the stag on the cover and the colours.

t3ob2rh

These are the 2013 UK Adult editions. I don’t like these, I think they are boring and I prefer the illustrated children’s editions!

rxpisua

These are the original US editions, I really don’t like the illustrations in this edition!

4ju0qde

This is the original Bloomsbury Adult edition! These are just way too dark and it just doesn’t feel like a Harry Potter book to me.


Well, that is it! Which is your favourite! Let me know in the comments!

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-35-26-pm

This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.

This week’s prompt is: Character’s you wouldn’t want to trade places with.

This is such an awesome question! Let’s get started!


draco-malfoy_hbp

Draco Malfoy

I actually don’t mind him as a character, but I would hate to be him. The way he is treated, especially by his father and what he is expected to do and the person he is expected to be just  because of who his family is and their history. I would just hate to be him…

 

Hunger-games-katniss-everdeen-image.jpg

 

 

Katniss Everdeen

The amount of shit this girl goes through, throughout the book is ridiculous and would not want to be in her shoes!

 

b40e195676be4992c8c38191829c9fe5

 

 

Tris Prior

This is mostly because of the ending of the book and all the crap she has to go through just because she is Divergent..

But at the same time, Tobias….

 

fred-and-george-fred-and-george-weasley-25159009-500-410

 

George Weasley

I love the Twins to death! But after losing Fred I would hate to be George. Every time you look in the mirror you would see him staring back… It would be absolutely horrible.

Illuminae-Cover

 

 

Kady Grant

The amount of shit this girl goes through, between having to leave her planet and everything and also dealing with AIDAN, I would rather have been dead than in that situation..

 

 


What character wouldn’t you want to trade places with let me know in the comments or let me know if you did this week T5W too!

Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-9-36-34-pm

So I’m back for another Book Tag! I saw Cátia @ the Girl Who Read Too Much do this tag and I thought it was awesome so now I’m going to give it a go!

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…

My Books:

  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth
  • Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
  • Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

The Invasion

The First Person to Die – Eric (Insurgent)

i_d006_01976_r

That’s fine, he was a dick through the whole series!

The Person You Trip to Escape – Tobias (Insurgent)

images_1

I swear it was an accident….

The Person That Trips You to Escape – Jill (Bloodlines)

No need to be a bitch, I would have helped you!

The Team Idiot – Eddie (Bloodlines)

I wouldn’t say he was an idiot and I’d be perfectly happy to have him on the team in a Zombie Apocalypse, he is badass and he is a guardian so we know he can fight!

The Brains of the Group – Frodo (LOTR)

frodobaggins1

I would have been more happy with Gandalf but I can handle that.

The Team Medic – Strider (LOTR)

dfef30b0-6779-0132-6985-0e910e60be26

Well, he is no doctor but it’s better than nothing!

Weapons Expert – Miss Peregrine (Miss Peregrine’s)

miss-peregrine-poster_0

Again could be worse, If we could count the Peculiar Children as weapons I think we would have a better chance…

Team Brawler – Emma (Miss Peregrine’s)

miss-peregrines-home-poster-emma-bloom-ella-purnell

Considering she can shoot fire from her hands I’m more than okay with that!

First to Turn into a Zombie – Crouch Snr. (HP)

MCDHAPO EC557

I’m not surprised he couldn’t stop his own son from killing him I doubt he would have lasted anyway

Team Leader – Ron (HP)

ron_weasley

When he needs to Ron can defiantly play that role well. I think we would have a chance with him as the leader.

Honestly, think I have a pretty good team going here! We stand a fair chance!

I tag
