[Book Tag] The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

book tag

I think I was tagged before for this particular tag but since I’ve lost my bookmarks I don’t remember. If you’re the one who tagged me please let me know so that I can link your post to mine and thank you!

Yesterday, Analee [Book Snacks] was as sweet and kind as always and tagged me to do The Unpopular Opinion Tag and I am thrilled cause you all know how much I enjoy expressing my opinion. Coming up next as always is Rant Tuesday so it’s a great day to just say what I think.

Let’s do this!

♚ A popular book or series that you didn’t like.

Please don’t kill me or hate me but my answer is…

Yes yes yes I know you all love this book. It’s not that I hate it cause I don’t. I just didn’t like it… at all. BUT I finished it and this has to mean something, right? I usually dnf books I don’t like.

Not going to apologize to those who liked it but I hope you all understand that I am allowed to have different taste and opinion!

♚ A popular book that everyone hates but you love.

My first YA paranormal book ever… has a very special place in my heart!

 A love triangle where your ship did not sail.

Oh don’t let me start with this!! Two series came in mind and I have to talk about both please cause I feel the need.

I really really really really really really liked Adrian, ok? I was shipping him with Rose so hard and my feelings were hurt when Rose went after Dimitri anyway. Poor Adrian… even though he got his own series, I still can’t get over how disappointed I was. I didn’t even read the final book of VA because I was spoiled that she really ends up with Dimitri. Oh what a surprise!

Calla was supposed to mate with Ren… Ren was absolutely the best! Calla falls in love with a human boy I don’t even remember his name. Why Calla? Why? You had Ren and you just gave him up. Dnf-ed the series of course. I won’t spoil you at all but I didn’t like what happened next.

♚ A beloved character you didn’t like.

America drove me crazy. Even though she is one of the most lovable characters, I just don’t like her at all. Especially after reading ‘The Heir’.

♚ A popular genre that you hardly reach for.

Dystopia. I think dystopian books are pretty much the same story with some differences. All about a girl who’s about to change the cruel world she lives in.

♚ A popular author you can’t get into.

Hm I don’t think I have one I can’t get into.

♚ A popular books series you have no interest in reading.

I’ll go the same as Analee.

I’ve watched the movie since it was a bit more romantic but just that. I am not really into erotica and especially BDSM. I have no idea why the series went viral but I don’t really want to know either.

♚ An adaptation you like better than the book.

That would be Maze Runner but I haven’t read the book. So I guess I’ll go with Divergent. Yes yes I loved the book but I liked the characters so much more in the movie. Book’s characters were a bit childish for me but in the movie they were badasses.

Want to say your opinion? Let me know and I’ll officially tag you. I was away for too long and I don’t know who has done this tag or not. Don’t be shy. I was tagged that way by Analee~

[Book Tag] Your Future Book Tag

book tag

I would like to thank Tifany from [Book is the Star] for tagging me and for turning this utube tag (originally created by Aria from BookGeekMovieFreak) to a wordpress tag. I am sorry for being so late.

Basically you choose five books and put them in a jar. You pick a book every two questions and your answer depends on the book. Personally I’ve chosen randomly my five books and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

1. Open book 1 to a random page. Look at the first word on the page. If it’s less than 5 letters, you will go to college. If it’s more than 5 letters, you won’t go to college.

The first word is ‘of’. So since it’s less than 5 letters I get to go to college.! Yaay~

2. Open book 1 to a random page. The first name you see. Think of that persons job, that will be your job. Note: Is that person stil in school? You will be a teacher. You don’t know that persons job? You will be unemployed.

‘Aiden’ is the first name I saw. Aiden is a sentinel so I am a badass sentinel who kills lots of daimons.

3. Open book 2 to a random page. The first name you see will be the person you will marry.

Clary is the first name that appears but I am sure that we both are not into girls. Jace comes after her name and ‘I do’! I just have to warn you that book’s Jace and not movie’s Jace. Absolutely not!

4. Open book 2 to a random page. The first name you see will be your best friend.

Clary is again the first name. I should accept it this time. Well she is all over the book after all.

[Book Tag/Award] Liebster Award

I was kindly nominated by sweet Daniela [Books To Get Lost In], cute Olivia [Bibliomad] and the awesome Kira [Fieitty Reads], make sure to check out her awesome blog! Thank you honey!

The Rules

✦ Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.

✦ Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you.

✦ Give eleven random facts about yourself

✦ Nominate eleven bloggers that you think are deserving of the award (with less than 200 followers).

✦ Let the bloggers know you have nominated them.

✦ Give them eleven questions to answer.

questions

Think back: Your favourite book as a child?

Oh that’s an easy question! I’ll go with Harry Potter of course, even though The Inheritance series was as close as HP in my heart!

Which fictional character would you like as a brother? As a sister?

Nick [Elemental] as my brother and Penryn [Penryn & The End of Days] as my sister. They both proved how much they love their families and their siblings and that they would do anything in the world to keep them safe and sound.

If your life would be a book… which genre would it be?

Hm, at the moment my life is boring. Back in high school it was full of teenage drama so I guess my book would be a contemporary romance > high school. Yup, such a drama queen.

What is your biggest pet peeve in books?

INSTA-FREAKING-LOVE

It makes me so angry and I feel like getting into the book be in a slapping spree.

What is your favourite book turned into movie/tv series?

I guess I’ll go with Divergent. I was not disappointed and I really liked the cast! (maybe more than I should have)

What is the worst book turned into movie/tv series?

That would be The Mortal Instruments. I hated the movie cast and how they practically ruined the plot but I hope that Shadowhunters will be better. At least I liked the cast.

Which was the last book that made you lose sleep because you read way too long into the night?

Oh that actually happened last night with To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

 Have you ever dreamed about a book?

No, but I want so badly to dream about a book I really love.

Who is your favourite side character?

That’s the easiest question ever! Ristan [The Fae Chronicles]. My dear is so awesome that he got his own book. [A Demon’s Dark Embrace] How perfect is that? I can’t wait for it to get published.

Who is your favourite villain?

Oh, I’ve never thought about that, actually. Maybe the Lord of our hearts, Voldemort?

Which book has to be published right now because you can’t take the wait any longer?

Hm, none for now. I usually read finished series.

✦ 11 random facts about myself ✦

My real name is Evangelia and it means ‘good news’.

I cry a lot.

I love collecting useless stuff.

I think I like attention and getting aknowledged more than I should.

My favorite color is pink and if I could everything would be pink.

I am hopeless romantic and I believe love is the greatest gift.

I am into dancing but I am not proud of my dancing skills.

I want to get married soon and have kids (like in a year or two).

I need my memories and so I keep a journal since I was 13 and I take photos all the time.

I used to write fanfics based in my love life, it was awesome.

Some day I’ll be a publisher and I’ll be helping new writers publish their books.

my questions

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned from a book?

What book can you read hundreds of times and never get tired of?

What quote from any book will you never forget and why?

Do you own any Fandom Merchandise?

Fictional Place You Wish Was Real?

How many books do you own?

Any weird reading habits?

What is the worst book you’ve ever read?

What was the first book that had a major influence on you?

Is there a book you are scared is not going to be all you hoped it would be?

Is there any book you prefer the film/TV adaptation of?

my tags

I feel so sad when I am not tagged and I don’t want any of you to feel that way, so I decided this time to just tag whoever wants this award. You all deserve it so if you wish to answer the questions and have the award in your blog than don’t hesitate and leave a comment. I’ll tag you without a second thought! You are all awesome~

[Book Tag/Award] Blogger Recognition Award

book tag

I am so excited to be back with my first award! Thanks to Vivian [Outside Hook], Ronyell [Rabbit Ears Productions Blog], Michelle [The Writing Hufflepuff], Sanchita [Abookesia] and  [Fieitty Reads] I was finally nominated~ You can’t imagine how happy I am.

So here it is:

RULES: 

» Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.

» Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post.

Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).

» Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.

» Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing! (It happens LOL).

My blog’s story is boring, really. One day a couple of years ago I was posting a review on Goodreads and I realized that I wanted to do more than that. I wanted to share more things and thoughts and so I decided to make a blog. When I did I was not very excited and I was rarely posting anything. About two months ago, I accidentally clicked on my blog’s bookmark and just stayed there and decided to take the whole blogging thingy seriously. And here I am blogging my heart out.

I am practically still a new blogger and I still make mistakes so I am not sure how to advise you. I guess there right advice is to make many friends. Search for other bloggers, leave feedback and be friendly. Come up with a comfortable routine and post about things that make you happy and excited. That’s what I do and I swear I enjoy it as hell.

Keep on having fun blogging!

[Book Tag] The Reading Habits Tag!

book tag

Hey guys! I am back with another tag thanks to the awesome Raven [Dreamy Addictions], the sweet Josephine [Josie’s Book Corner], the cute Emily [The Little Book Affair] and the fellow [Ultimate Fangirl] Bianca . Check out their blog because you really don’t want to miss their posts!

Let’s do this!

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

To be honest I usually read on my (or my boyfriend’s) bed. It’s the most comfortable place because I can change positions. My waist is usually in pain so I can’t afford to make it worse. BUT I also have another certain place and that would be the bus. Yup! I am on the road all the time and reading in the bus is a way to ignore the weird people around me.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I have so many bookmarks and some of them are special to me because they’re kpop related and I’ve bought them as collectibles. So I mostly use the bus ticket as a bookmark. Like I said before I am always on the road.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

I stop reading when I feel like stop reading. I don’t get the question. Is it about loosing control or something like that? No, that happens the rare times I find a good book to read.

Do you eat or drink while reading?

If the book is not physical then I do both. Lately I’ve been reading ARCs so I use my tablet. I am a foodie so I can’t resist.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Nope, no multitasking. It’s not a talent of mine to multitask in general.

One book at a time or several at once?

Usually is just one book. I am a very strict and organized person and getting out of my program, plan and lists it’s killing me.

Reading at home or everywhere?

I prefer at home but I’m forced to also read on the bus.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?

I have never considered reading out loud, wow. I wouldn’t do it but it hadn’t cross my mind at all.

Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I do skip pages and they’re mostly sex scenes. I am not into erotica but if I like the book and I want to read it then I skip the sex scenes, especially if they are 65% of the book. I can’t deal with them and I find them unnecessary.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Hahahahaha! Stupid question and I don’t even have to answer.

Do you write in your books?

No, I have a notebook and I keep all my reviewing notes there. Why ruin the book?
