the get to know me book tag

Posted January 22, 2019 by cottoncandybookwitch in tags / 6 Comments

I love tags and haven’t done one in a while, so I am stealing this tag made by Rachel that I saw on Aurora Libralis.

 

Name your favorite color and a book you own in that color

I used to say my favorite color was purple, but recently, it has become pink, and I now need to own everything that is that particular shade of cotton candy pink that goes by “millenial pink.” I find pink so charming and plus it’s the color of my hair so…yeah, it’s probably my favorite color. As for a book I own in that color, I’d go with either REBEL BELLES, which is actually my favorite shade of pink, or THE BELLES (I’m sensing a theme with titles and belles…)

 

Describe yourself in three book characters

  • Meggie from INKHEART
  • Jane Sinner from NICE TRY, JANE SINNER
  • Emmy from THE BRIGHTSIDERS (did I pick her just because of her flaming bisexuality and love of music? Yes, yes I did.)

 

Hyped books–yes or no. If yes–what’s the most hyped book you’ve read? If no–what’s the most hyped book you’ve decided not to read?

Recently, the most hyped book I’ve read is THE CRUEL PRINCE. I used to avoid hyped books, but then realized I was mostly avoiding them because I wanted to be cool and not mainstream, which was silly, so now I usually give in to the hype when it comes to books because often, hyped books end up being really good! Unfortunately, that was not the case with THE CRUEL PRINCE for me, since I found it slow and disappointing and boring, but I’ve had good luck with other hyped books like WARCROSS and GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE.

 

Recommend a book for each season

❄️ Winter–The Hazel Wood
🌸 Spring–The Belles
☀️ Summer–Nantucket Blue (Lelia Howland)
🍁 Fall–Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

 

Name a book that wrecked you emotionally

33958230

FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS absolutely crushed my soul. I was rooting for Xifeng to become Empress but also the way she felt she had to do it completely crushed me? Watching her downward spiral was suspenseful, tension-filled, and heartbreaking. This book absolutely destroyed me and I had the biggest book hangover afterward and I do not regret a single thing.

 

Name one book you would recommend with tea and cookies

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE is definitely a tea and cookies book! Specifically the third book in the trilogy, ALWAYS AND FOREVER, LARA JEAN, because she spends the whole book trying to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

 

What is your guilty pleasure book?

I don’t believe in having guilty pleasures when it comes to reading because I don’t think anyone should be ashamed of what they read. Plus, most of what I read (YA) would be what most people would consider a guilty pleasure, and I feel no guilt about loving YA!

 

Favorite dessert and a book that reminds you of it

This was a really hard question but as soon as I thought of LAVA CAKEEEEE I knew I’d found my perfect dessert. Any time a restaurant has lava cake on the menu, you better believe I will be ordering it. The book that reminds me of lava cake is CARAVAL because the writing is so beautiful and luscious like the filling in a lava cake!

 

Are you a procrastinator? What books are you procrastinating on reading?

I am not usually a procrastinator and like to get things done as soon as they’re assigned, but when it comes to my most anticipated books or books in general, I can procrastinate for a long darn time. I have been procrastinating on reading A REAPER AT THE GATES since its release even though I love the EMBER books, probably because I can’t decide if I should reread TORCH since I’ve forgotten half of it due to dreadful series amnesia. I’ve also been meaning to read ILLUMINAE forever, and have started two or three times but never finished. I also keep meaning to read THE RAVEN BOYS, and have started that a couple times as well but seem to get distracted every time I try to read it.

  1. Ahh I love the book characters you picked to describe yourself! Well, I love Emmy & Meggie, I haven’t read Jane Sinner just yet, but I have a feeling I’ll love her just as well 😀 And the Lara Jean series is the best with tea and cookies, that’s for sure. I love this series <3

      I felt like picking TATBILB was a bit of a cop out since the person I stole the tag from picked it too but it literally has cookies in it so how could I not?? Aaaah and I hope you do read Jane Sinner; it’s so good!!

      lol I know I know I really need to finish it! I don’t know why but every time I start it I end up stopping at like 100 pages? But it seems like such a “me” book that I’m still convinced I’ll finish it eventually

          usually I like weird formatted books but for some reason with Illuminae I think it just made it hard for me to kind of situate myself in the story. I guess I’ll have to try and tough out the first 150 pages to get to where it picks up next time 🙂
