Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Header Image (11)

I haven’t done a tag in forever! So I decided I would do one now! All I did was go into the WordPress Reader and scrolled until I found a tag! So the first tag I found was the Totally Should’ve Book Tag and The Book Dutchesses is who posted it.

Let’s jump in!

1. Totally should’ve…..gotten a sequel

30237061

I do love that this was a standalone as YA Fantasy standalone’s are rare, but also this book was amazing and I wanted more.

2. Totally should’ve…… had a spin-off series

Harry Potter Audiobooks from Audible_thumb

Do I really need to explain myself?

3. Totally should’ve……who totally should write more books

rebel-of-the-sands-trilogy

This is Alwyn Hamilton’s debut and it was bloody amazing!! So I need something else from her!

4. Totally should’ve……ended differently

Mockingjay-UK-Adult-Cover

There is one specific thing that should have been different at the end of this book! But I don’t want to spoil anyway, sooo….

5. Totally should’ve……had a movie franchise

I am not going to answer this but knowing how a lot of book to movie adaptations go, they ruin it. So no.
But a book that would make a cool movie would be Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

9781405921886

6. Totally should’ve……had a TV series

Same as for the movie. I don’t want it ruined but a book that would make an awesome TV show if done correctly would be The Menagerie Series by Tui T Sutherland & Kari Sutherland

7. Totally should’ve……had one point of view

9781473647602

I wouldn’t necessarily say this should have had only 1 POV, but less than it did might have been nice to connect with the characters more. I do love multi POV books though.

8. Totally should’ve……had a cover change

These covers are just no!! I honestly prefer the 10th year anniversary & movie covers (below) to these. But none of them are great. Out of all of them, the movie cover is the best-looking one and that is saying something! This series is amazing can we please do something about these shitty covers though!

9. Totally should’ve……kept the original covers

I have a couple.

First off, I don’t hate the cover change itself as the new UK covers are awesome too. But it pisses me off that they changed it mid way through a series! If you’re going to do that, still come out with the next books as a matching cover. and the new covers. Like Alwyn Hamilton did with Rebel of the Sands!

Next, I know both are still available but the first covers are gorgeous!!

10. Totally should’ve……stopped at one book

Okay, so for this one it should have stopped after the second book.

I really enjoyed Firstlife & Lifeblood but Everlife, my god! It read like a fucking Adult romance 80% of the time! And it’s meant to be a YA fantasy. It was just bad.

I Tag

I usually don’t tag specific people, but I thought fuck it. Why not, so I tag:

Kathy @ Books and Munches

Maya @ Fire-Breathing Book Dragon

Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Arwa @ One’s Peculiar

Tag Sunday – This Is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Tag

Header Image

This tag was created by The Tattooed Book Geek! Let’s get this going!



1. What’s your favourite Genre?

YA fantasy is definitely my favourite!

2. Who’s your favourite author from the genre?

J.K. Rowling of course!

JKROWLINGPR_S01_00057_V4.jpg

3. What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

Definitely the worlds. Being able to escape into a completely different world with magic and mystery!

4. What’s the book that started your love for your favourite genre?

The Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking.

The-Trylle-Trilogy (1)

5. If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?

Well, of course, Harry Potter, that one is obvious. But besides that, I would recommend The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni!

6. Why do you read? 

I hate this question! I read because I enjoy it! Why else do people do things?!



Blog Title

Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 2 people in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest 2 followers! These will also be only followers that I follow back as well as there is no point in tagging someone I don’t follow.

Tag Sunday (kinda) – I Love Spring Book Tag

Copy of Review Banner (8)

So, I started this a few days ago when I was bored and then my mate turned up so I had to pause… Then I was planning on doing it yesterday as a Tag Sunday post, but I was so tired so I just went to bed. So here it finally is!

I will be getting back into Tag Sunday’s from now on as I have been so slack!

So let’s get straight into it!



1. How is spring where you live?

Bloody hot and dry.

2. Anticipated book release this Spring?

3. What book cover makes you think of Spring?

4. Where are you going to read this month?

That’s kinda an odd question? I’m going to read in the same places as the rest of the year? Bed & longue as usual.

5. Find a cover with a sun on it?

10345927

6. What are your favourite spring reads?

I don’t read certain genres in certain seasons. I just always read YA fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian and historical fiction.

7. Find a book with many different colours on it.

I’m choosing a series & a single book that I instantly thought of when reading this question.

warcross_030717

8. Who do you tag?



Review Titles (6)

So usually I tag my 2 latest followers, but as this tag is limited to people who are in Spring atm I’m not going to tag anyone in particular. But if you are in Spring right now then consider yourself tagged!



Also if you are a fellow Aussie then let me know in the comments!

Hogwarts Tag

So this is a bonus tag but as soon as I saw this I had to do it! I am obviously a massive Harry Potter fan and I will never pass up a chance to talk about Hogwarts!

So, I’m going to get straight into the questions. Also, I tag EVERYONE!!



Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?

Well my mum has read the first 3 books and getting to the others and watched all the movies and my dad doesn’t read, he has seen all the movies though because he didn’t really have a choice haha. So I would probably say Half-Blood.

Which wand chose me?

Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 9.08.30 pm

Did I take an owl, cat, rat, or toad with me?

I would probably choose an owl. Even though I love cats I think owls are awesome and would be handy as!

giphy (1)

Where did the sorting hat put me?

pm-pride-Gryffindor-Twitter-Header-Image-1500-x-500-px

What house did I want to be in?

I always thought I would be Gryffindor and I was very okay with that!

What lessons are my favourite and least favourite?

Favourites:
Care of Magical Creatures – I love animals and my favourite class in school was Ag and this is the magical equivalent!
Charms – This is the basic kinda spells so I think this would be important and who doesn’t want to make things fly!
Potions – Not with Snape as a teacher though as it seems like he actually doesn’t care about his students, he just expects everyone to be shit so doesn’t actually try and properly teach them and I can’t stand that.
Transfiguration – Who doesn’t want to learn how to turn a desk into a pig?! This is also a really handy skill if you are in a pinch and need something.
History of Magic – if it had a different teacher that was actually engaging! I love learning about history but how do they expect anyone to pass this class if everyone is asleep or zoned out!
Astronomy – I love looking at stars and I would love to learn more about them. In school, we only learnt a little about the planets in science class but I have always been curious.

Least Favourite:
Herbology – I have never really been into gardening or anything as I’m more of an animal person so I don’t think I would love this subject. I think learning about some of the plants would be a bit interesting though.
Muggle studies – I don’t honestly see the point of this subject but if you were a pure blood or a half-blood that was raised mainly in the wizarding world then I think it would be interesting. But I would definitely not be an Arthur Weasley.
Ancient Runes – And this is mainly here because I don’t fully know what it is or understand what you actually learn.
Divination – I’ll pass!

The form my Patronus takes:

Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 9.36.48 pm

I don’t really like the Patronus quiz thing. I have done this test about 4 times and obviously got all different things as I’m pretty sure it’s completely random as I’m pretty sure I answered the tests the exact same at least 3 of the times. And I remember getting a Mastiff dog the first time, which is honestly a dog breed I do not like and then I got I a different bird which I had never even heard of and when I looked it up it was a bird not found in Aus, so of course I didn’t know it. Then I got something else that I don’t remember and then I got the Sparrow. At least I know what a sparrow is but I still don’t think this test is that great.
On the Expecto Patronus info page, it says that the Patronus is usually something that is common where you live and that is why cats, dogs & horses are the most common. But that was not the case at all in any of choices I got as I have never even seen a mastiff in person I don’t think and Sparrows are kinda rare to see where I live, you only see them occasionally.

What does a boggart look like to me?

Okay so I honestly do not know any of my fears so I have no clue what my Patronus would be. I obviously have a fear I guess but I haven’t experienced it yet to actually know it.

Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?

I would definitely give Quidditch a go, I don’t think I would be good at it as I don’t have the best hand eye coordination. I would probably collect Chocolate Frog cards! I would also give Wizards chess a go too. I haven’t played chess a tonne so I’m not that great but I think it would be fun.

Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?

Near the lake, of course, sitting near the lake reading would be awesome! Or just chillen in the common room near the fire in the comfy lounges in winter.

What would I most likely get detention for?

Probably ‘talking back’ to the teacher or talking in class..! Oh and probably sneaking to the kitchens in the middle of the night!

What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?

Auror would be cool but I’m going to go with something to do with animals as I would love to work with animals!
I did a quiz on BuzzFeed, which you can find HERE and it said I should be a Wandmaker, which would be interesting! I think wand making is a little understated but you would get to go on awesome adventures to harvest the wood from wand trees and collect the cores for the wands!



And that is all! I’m going to take a few people, not my most recent followers like I do on my normal Tag Sunday.  But if you want to do this tag then feel free!!!! I tag EVERYBODY!!!!

I tag: Bree @ In Love and Words // Maya @ Fire-Breathing Book Dragon // Destiny @ Howling Libraries // Stephanie @ TeacherOfYA

Tag Sunday – Wonder Woman Book Tag

Header Image

So I’m back for another tag sunday! This tag was created by Amber @ Amber’s Books and More on Youtube.

Let’s get into it!



1. WONDER WOMAN: YOUR FAVORITE BADASS FEMALE BOOK CHARACTER

I don’t have an exact favourite so I’m going with 3!
Amani by Rebel of the Sands, Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy & Alex from Akarnae! Also, an honorable mention is Ginny Weasley!

2. FANTASY ISLAND: A BOOK SETTING YOU WANT TO ESCAPE TO

Medora or the Wizarding World

3. LONDON: A HYPED BOOK THAT LET YOU DOWN

I didn’t hate either of these books but they were definitely not as good as the hype suggested!

4. STEVE TREVOR: A BOOK THAT HAS A BEAUTIFUL COVER AND A GREAT STORY (I.E. GREAT PERSONALITY)

5. LASSO OF TRUTH: A BOOK YOU HATED

harry-potter-cursed-child-final-cover

6. WONDER WOMAN’S SHIELD: A BOOK SO SAD YOU NEED A SHIELD

I don’t really get the shield part of this question, but I will just go with 2 books that I found sad.

7. NO MAN’S LAND: A BOOK THAT YOU WANT TO SEND THROUGH NO MAN’S LAND (I.E. SHOOT IT TO DEATH)

harry-potter-cursed-child-final-cover (1)

8. ARES: A VILLIAN THAT IS SCARY, BUT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO HATE

Okay, so I won’t say exactly who this is as it would completely ruin the mystery of the book! But it is the villain from Daughter of the Burning City!

30237061 (1)

9. DR. POISON: A VILLIAN THAT HAS NO REASON TO EXIST

Yeah, I don’t really have an answer for this question…

10. THE AMAZONS: A BOOK THAT YOU WISH HAD MORE/BETTER LGBT+ REPRESENTATION

Well, there is a lot of books that I wish had more LGBT+ rep but for this, I’m going to go with ACOWAR. I won’t ruin anything but I feel like the certain LGBT topic was barely mentioned, so this wasn’t bad rep but there could be an improvement, so I’m hoping that this goes further in the companion series.

23766634

11. JUSTICE LEAGUE: WHAT SUPERHERO BOOK FRIENDS DO YOU TAG?

Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 2 people in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest 2 followers! These will also be only followers that I follow back as well as there is no point in tagging someone I don’t follow.

Tag Sunday – Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

Header Image (92)

I’m back for another Tag Sunday! This week I saw this tag over at A Book. A Thought. You can also find the original tag on Youtube HERE.

So let’s get into it!

* I’m not using my usual tag graphics only because some of these questions are crazy long and won’t fit in my graphic and be readable!*



A Popular Book or series that you didn’t like

If you want to know why you can find my Spoiler Free review of Me Before You HERE & my Spoilery review of Shiver HERE

A Popular Book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love

allegiant-book-cover-high-res (1)

 A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn ppl for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don’t like

As I’m not a huge romance fan I don’t generally get hugely attached to romances in books. I also HATE love triangles, so I’m going to go with the OTP I don’t like and that would be.

SPOILERS

Nevernight-Royal-HB-front-White-title (1)

Is it Mia & Tric? I think that’s them, I didn’t enjoy this book so I kinda forgot basically everything and had to look it up in my review.

A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for

Romance, I never pick up straight romance books.

A popular or beloved character that you do not like

Cinder_(Official_Book_Cover)_by_Marissa_Meyer (2)

Prince Kai, if you want to know why I have a mini rant in my review which you can find HERE!

A popular author that you can’t seem to get into

I don’t really have an answer for this question because I don’t have an author that I have read multiple of their books and I couldn’t get into. But I will mention a couple that their first book didn’t impress me and I’m not racing in to pick up another!

For Jay Kristoff I am referring to his books that are just him. I absolutely LOVE The Illuminae Files but the first book by solely him I read was Nevernight and I didn’t love it.

A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)

Love Triangles & Insta love are big ones but the main one I am REALLY sick of is the bad parents one. It doesn’t really have a name but I’m talking about how most YA books the MC’s parents are either horrible people, dead, they abandoned them or just aren’t home enough to look after them.

I’m just going to go in order of the last 10 books I read to see how many show this trope. I will not name the books to avoid spoilers.

Father Dead, Mother turns out to be a bad guy
Wasn’t a YA book (The Hobbit)
Father cheats on mother
There but absent from house a lot of the time
Father Dead & Step Mother is a bitch
Adopted father who is bad guy in the end
Weren’t really involved in book but did care
Given up by parents
Never around and doesn’t pay attention AT ALL
Mother dead & abusive father

That is litterally the order from the last 10 books/series I read! Like where are all the good parents! Where are the families/parents like Weasleys, the Women of 300 Fox way & Mav and Lisa from The Hate U Give!

This is a trope I am so over!

A popular series that you have no interest in reading

The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

So this is a series that I haven’t finished the books. But I am going to go with Season 1 of Shadowhunters. I really enjoyed Season 1 and I didn’t enjoy book 1 & 2. I didn’t like Season 2 though, I thought it got a bit weird and I was also told that Clary & Simon never get together in the book and yet they did in the show and I’m not okay with changing something that major in an adaptation, even if I didn’t love the book! They just shouldn’t do that shit!

shadowhunters

Tag Sunday – The Happiness Tag

Header Image (81)

I was tagged by the awesome Olga @ Olga’s Oddish Obsession to do the Happiness Tag! Make sure you go and check out her answers HERE! And thanks for the tag! It’s fun to get away from tags that are about books sometimes. And for that reason I will not be using books as an answer for the first question as it’s kinda obvious, I wouldn’t have a bookish blog if I didn’t love it.



More Tag Questions (38)

1. Food & cooking!

Olga used this same answer, well food, in hers but I can’t not use it when food is amazing! I love cooking and I basically never follow a recipe, I just make things up, don’t use measurements or see a recipe and alter it. Some of my favourite things to cook and eat are creamy garlic prawns, marinated pork & noodles, Mac N Cheese Lasagna & my Mum’s spaghetti and meatballs.

I’ll insert a pic below what I made tonight for dinner.

24B9BA54-307B-4017-AD3D-C1ED33456D49

It has butter, garlic, cream, chicken stock, garlic powder, onion flakes, curry powder, mushrooms, prawns & rice.

2. Movies & TV Shows

I love watching tv & movies! At the moment I’m rewatching Supernatural Season 10 as I want to continue with Season 11 & 12. I watched up to the send of season 10 last year on Netflix and was waiting for them to get the newer seasons but they never did and now they have removed Supernatural from the Australian & New Zealand Netflix and will soon be removing it from all the rest as well. Which sucks, so instead of using Netflix I am now downloading them from online. Other TV Shows I love are Orange is the New Black, The 100, That 70s Show, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Mrs Browns Boys & Two Broke Girls.

3. Music

I don’t listen to music as much as I used to, mainly because I use most of my spare time to read but I still listen to music at least once a day. I’m currently loving the new Katy Perry album, mainly Swish Swish, Bon Appétit & Power

4. Photography

Photography is in my family and I love it. There are only 2 of my 5 cousins that aren’t into photography, the rest of us are and my Mum, Aunty, Uncle & Grandfather. I mainly photograph landscapes & flowers. I occasionally post my photography on my main Instagram (@duskangel222) if you wanted to check it out, there isn’t a lot on there, but some. Oh and if anyone was wondering I use a Canon 750D for my photography but I need to get more lenses as the one I have is the one that came with it and it doesn’t zoom very far in and I just want more out of it, so I will have to buy new ones for it.

5. Animals

I love basically all animals! I own 3 cats, well one is mine the other two are actually my dads. But yeah I have 3 cats, I really want a dog and so does my dad but we have very different ideas of what type of dog I want compared to what he wants. He wants a chihuahua that he can take in his truck with him, he has had 3 over the years and wants another because when he was with my Mum he wasn’t allowed because she hates dogs. Whereas I want a big dog, preferably a Husky as they are my favourite and so gorgeous.  I also wouldn’t mind a Rottie, Labrador or something similar. Our town’s crime rate has gone through the roof and I want a dog that could also be a guard dog. At the moment our neighbour has a Rottie and if he doesn’t know you, you would not step in that yard and if someone comes in our yard he doesn’t know he goes off and has jumped the fence in the past, so with him around I feel better about being home alone with all the ferals that have moved into town. But once I move out I won’t have him around so that’s also another reason I want a dog now, so by the time I move out it would be old enough. But outside of pets I also love wolfs, horses & pandas. I have a wolf tattoo and already kinda know what the next one will be!

More Tag Questions (39)

Yes, there will be Harry Potter involved in this list.

1. Bon Apétit by Katy Perry

2. In the Street (That 70s Show Theme Song) by Cheap Trick

3. Hedwig’s Theme

4. Do the Hippogriff by Patrick Doyle

5. No Diggity by Blackstreet

Tag Sunday – The College Freshman Book Tag

Header Image (58)

So I actually didn’t go to College, for one one thing Australia has more University’s than Colleges, I guess you could consider them the same thing? But just saying. Also I did my Diploma online, so I never had the actual Uni experience. I was tagged by the creators of this tag Dawlyn & Krista @Little Blind Book Finds! Be sure to go and check their blog out!


Rules!

1. Give credit to the creator of the tag!
2. Answer the questions to the best of your ability! You don’t have to be in college or have gone to college to answer these!
3. Tag three people to complete the tag.


More Tag Questions (9)

Roommates can be a hit or miss experience freshman year, especially when you don’t get the opportunity to pick who you room with. Name a character you’d love to be roommates with and one you’d hate to be roommates with.

My first thought for someone I would love to be roommates with was Rose from Vampire Academy. And I don’t really know about someone I would hate to be roommates with, maybe Nesta from the ACOTAR series she is just always so serious, moody and acts like she has no emotion, which would start to piss me off after a while as i’m the chatty, laughing and sarcastic person and that just wouldn’t work out.

Did you like the book? What did you learn from it?

Well I read Maus by Art Spiegelman and it was my first Graphic Novel. I wanted to try and read a Graphic Novel and seen as I love Historical Fiction I decided to choose a Historical Fiction Graphic Novel and really loved it! It was so interesting.

Choosing a major is something every college student has to do at some point, but many students choose their freshman year. Hopefully your major is something you are passionate about. Name a book that you have read about a topic you are passionate about, or a character from a book that shares a similar passion as you.

I haven’t read a book about a topic I am really passionate about. Not really anyway, I have read LGBT books, which I guess is a topic I’m ‘passionate’ about being biseuxal myself. However none of the LGBT+ books I have read have been about the discrimination side of it or about the legalisation (as in Aus same sex marriage is still not legal).
