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.

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!

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.

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!

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!
