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!

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.

More Tag Questions (10)

Before your freshman year officially begins, you typically go to an orientation to familiarize yourself with the campus. Orientation can be both exciting and scary as you’re experiencing something new. Name a book that you read to experience a new genre, or to familiarize yourself with a topic you knew nothing about. 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.

More Tag Questions (11)

It is normal to experience homesickness at some point after moving away from home for the first time. Name a book from your childhood that you love so much that you sometimes miss, and may even find yourself rereading it often.

I honestly didn’t read that much as a kid, so I have no answer for this.

More Tag Questions (12)

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).

More Tag Questions (13)

Joining different clubs and groups can often be an exciting thing to jump into as a freshman for some, and nerve-wracking for others. Name a popular book or book series that you didn’t think you’d enjoy, but ended up loving.

I don’t generally read books that I don’t think I will like, so its usually the other way around.

More Tag Questions (14)

As a college freshman and a college student in general, all-nighters are pretty common. Name one book that was so good, you stayed up all night reading it.

Well not all night, but later than usual, the last one was Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

More Tag Questions (15)

Speaking of those all-nighters, they usually have something to do with that assignment you put off until the last minute. Name a popular book or book series that you put off reading for way too long.

There is still heaps of popular series I need to get to. I would have to say Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, I haven’t finished the series but I have finally started it.

More Tag Questions (16)

You may or may not have experienced a hangover… or 10 during your freshman year in college. Name a book that left you with a book hangover after you finished it.

I am yet to have a book put me in a legitimate book hangover. I always write my book reviews straight after finishing a book, and I find that by writing my review I get everything out and then I’m ready to move on.

More Tag Questions (17)

Freshman year, you usually learn what it means to be a broke college student. Name a book that you remember buying even though you were tight on cash, because you just had to have it.

The 20th Anniversary Gryffindor editions (paperback & Hardcover) of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I couldn’t pass on that.

More Tag Questions (18)

General ed courses are typically all you take freshman year, and English is usually one of them. (Depending on the prof that could be a good thing 😉 ) Name a required reading book that you loved. (it can be middle/high school or college)

In High School I read Tomorrow When the War Began and really enjoyed it!

More Tag Questions (19)

Part of being a broke college student is trying to find the cheapest way to buy a textbook. To make it worse, some freshman gen ed courses end up having no use for the book at all. Name a book that you spent money on and ended up not liking.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Find my review HERE if you want to know more!

More Tag Questions (20)

All professors have office hours, and often times students don’t take advantage of them. Advice for freshman: go to office hours! It is a good idea to get to know your professors. Making connections with them can lead to great tips on assignments, internship opportunities, and job connections. Name a book (autobiography or biography) that you read to get to know more about someone you are interested in.

None

More Tag Questions (22)

There’s always that one professor that no one likes, especially in freshman gen ed courses. Name a villain or any character you disliked, that you would hate to have as a professor.

Umbridge! I know she was a teacher in HP, but would still hate it!

More Tag Questions (23)

Sometimes It gets to the midpoint of the semester and you can’t take any more of a particular class, and decide to drop it. Name a book or author you thought you’d enjoy reading but ended up not liking.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

More Tag Questions (24)

I learned so many life lessons my freshman year of college. The experience made me learn so much about myself that I didn’t realize. Name a book that has made you reflect on life.

Honestly none really.

I saw this over at The Bookish Wanderer and I’m pretty sure this isn’t the full tag as she says that she narrowed it down to 20 questions and that is the questions I’m doing, I think 20 is enough for one tag!
