The Book Blogger TMI Tag January 30, 2014


First off, I’d like to thank Simply Miko…You made my ENTIRE day, so good job to you.

Now, too the questions at hand!

How old are you?

I am the LOVELY age of 16. Which means I’m old. VERY old. In fact, SO OLD, that I had to emphasize my oldness 3 times. I’m that old (*4 times).

What book are you reading?

I’m reading Violet Eyes, but I SHOULD be reading Insurgent, because it’s due to the library in about a week, and I can’t renew the hold because the waiting line for that book is RIDICULOUSLY long.

What are you wearing?



(One True Pairing, for those who don’t know.)

MUCH.TOO.HARD. That’s like asking what your favorite song is…I don’t understand how people can answer this question. Okay, I’ll go with Percy and Annabeth and Leo and Calypso (YES, I READ PERCY JACKSON. Deal with it.) and (MY FAVORITE) Hazel and Augustus (AGAIN, MY FAVORITE).

Blogger or WordPress?

WordPress. Blogger was really boring. I couldn’t even figure out how to comment on it.

I STILL don’t know how to comment on it.

Going outside being active or staying in and reading a book?

Why would you go outside when there’s books…

UNLESS it’s snowing. Because the world will never understand how much I love snow with all of my soul (I’m thinking it comes from being born so close to Christmas)

OH, or unless it’s raining when it’s sunny outside. It’s like the sun laughing at the whether. It’s amusing.

What is the last book you read?

Howl’s Moving Castle. I must say, though, that I like the movie better. Howl and Sophie falling in love at the end seemed WAY more of an after-thought in the book.

What is the book you’re going to read next?

Exile. It’s a Middle Grade book…but I read the first one and LOVED it (I laughed for a lot of it), so I’ll be INCREDIBLY disappointed if this one isn’t awesome too.

Ebooks – yes or no?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. I like regular paperback/hardcover books WAY better.

The only way I’d ever use a Kindle or whatever is if I went to some out of country place, and I didn’t feel like wandering from place to place looking for a library that probably won’t have any books written in English. THEN I’d definitely pick ebooks, ’cause I’m not dragging a suitcase full of books that’ll be due in a month to Italy.

Where do you prefer to read?

Anywhere people are less likely to bother me. Occasionally, that means hiding under my bed.

Who is the last person you tweeted?


Whose blog did you look at last?

Simply Miko (I had to copy and paste all these questions, didn’t I?), and before that The Little Engine that Couldn’t (CAUSE HE’S COOL), and before that Ben’s Bitter Blog (because we’re polar opposites. And because he’s funny), and BEFORE THAT…you know what, I think I’ll stop now.

Who is your favorite blogger?


Okay, I like Simply Miko (CAUSE HE’S STILL AMAZINGLY AWESOME), The Little Engine that Couldn’t (CAUSE HE’S STILL COOL TOO), and Fate loves the fearless (BECAUSE SHE IS MY MOST FAVORITE BLOGGER PERSON EVER and because she’s the reason I joined WordPress in the first place), and Is Everyone an Idiot but Me? (because SHE’S FUNNY TOO)

Who is your favorite book-tuber?



What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?

Walk away. Just walk. Away.

Who is the last author you spoke to?

Uh, I’ve never talked too an author before…BUT I know plenty of bloggers. Kind of. That counts, right?

Who is the last person you texted?


Who is your all-time favorite book character?

Ooooo that’S hard. *Skips*


What is your preferred drink whilst reading?

Whilst? Are we speaking old English now?

Water. Or orange juice.

OR EVEN BETTER, Lemonade. Because lemonade makes everything better.

If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?

Be social? Have a life? Be school-obsessed? I don’t know…what does everybody else do?

How many bookshelves / bookcases do you have?

One bookcase, three shelves (I’m trying to get my sister to let me use her one shelf because mine are overflowing, but she keeps saying no…)

If you had the choice to meet all of your favorite book bloggers or all of your favorite authors, which would you pick? You can only pick one.

AUTHORS. That way, I can get EVERY BOOK I OWN signed, and then sell it 56 years later for a million dollars.

THAT, my friends, is the way to retire.

Insta-love: yes or no?


Favorite author(s)?

John Green, Rick Riordan, Jessica Day George, Gail Carson Levine, Shannon Messenger, Raina Telgemeier…

What is the number-one book on your wishlist?

If I could read the next Percy Jackson book right now, I would cry pure tears of happiness and joy.


Which is your favourite book-to-film adaption?

As soon as it comes and and after I watch it and decide to love it with all my soul, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.

What is the last song you listened to?

Let it Go in 25 languages (it’s cool) and Lonely Nights (it’s REALLY good)

Which do you enjoy reading more – negative reviews or positive reviews?

Negative. I like to laugh at them. My friends will get negative comments on everything, and we’ll just laugh together. It’s the best.

But no one ever gives me ANY BAD COMMENTS.

Not that I’m complaining. I like nice comments. I like comments in general. I like reblogging and liking and supportive stuff like that. But I still like reading negative comments better.

Who are you going to tag?

…I almost didn’t even see this one. OKAY, LET’S SEE: Fate loves the fearless, #hartChronicles, brownautumn96 (because I BELIEVE you’re still alive somewhere)…and whoever else wants too!


i’m just going to make this a really long title since this is such a long post November 16, 2013

Filed under: 2013,a really long post on books — pinkdoughnuts15 @ 1:06 pm

So I was clicking through blog posts on that Freshly Pressed button….thing….and I came across this guy who I LOVE SO MUCH RIGHT NOW, and he’s holding a blog party.

So first of all, you must all realize now that I’m a little slow. And by slow, I mean someone has to use English words, and tell me what to do baby-step-by-baby-step for me to understand how something works. If you have the patience to do that, I can be a pro in just about 5 minutes (I would list examples to prove this, but that’s not the point of the post). So I’m just going to tell it to you straight. I have absolutely zero clue how a blog party works. The whole linking thing? Yeah…still confused. ‘


I decided to go ahead and participate ALL THE WAY on the other side of the universe on my lonely blog, and write anyways. Because I love the topic he picked.

WAIT. Okay, I JUST now got the whole linking thing….

Like I said, I’m a little slow.

But after clicking through Goodreads for a good 10 minutes, I’ve decided to put down some of my most favorite books EVER.

1. The Fault In Our Stars, John Green

This is the best book I have ever read in my WHOLE ENTIRE EXISTENCE. I cried for the last 5 chapters, even after the really sad part was over. I was crying for an hour after I was finished reading the book. When I found out they were making a movie, I seriously went around the house jumping up and down and hugging everybody. If you haven’t read it already, READ IT.

2. Keeper of the Lost Cities, Shannon Messenger (not a YA novel…BUT STILL LOVED IT)

As you’ll probably come to realize, I am a lover of all things fairy-tale and everything that ever had anything to do with magical-ness. And yes, I know that’s not a word. I haven’t read this book in a little over half a year, but when anyone brings up the subject of middle-grade reads, I immediately suggest this. If you  have anything against elves and magical cities and things pertaining to that, I suggest you do not read it. If you liked Harry Potter, you should read this.

3. The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

I got this for my birthday two years ago, and I stayed up reading it all night. I ended up going to bed at 2 am. There are no words to describe how awesome this is. I told my mom that we’re going to see the Catching Fire movie THE DAY IT COMES OUT. I’m saving up for tickets for both of us and everything. Heck, I’m saving up to buy too much popcorn and twizzlers too.

4. The Rangers Apprentice Series, John Flanagan

I couldn’t just pick ONE book, so I picked all of them! I haven’t even finished the series, but every time somebody mentions the any of the books, my reaction is a little like this: OH MY GOSH, YOU LOVE THAT BOOK TOO?! WHICH ONE WAS YOUR FAVORITE? I KNOW RIGHT?! THAT WAS MINE TOO!! I LOVE YOU SOOOO MUUUUCHHH RIIIIIIIIGHT NOOOOWWWW *HUGS THEIR GUTS OUT* That’s actually my reaction for most of these books (especially any of John Green’s books), but you get the point.

5. Tuesdays At The Castle (another non-YA novel), Jessica Day George

This book was so amazing. I mean, I didn’t think I could love a non-YA book as much as I love this one. I read this book, and I swear, the day the second book came out, a little piece of me died because I was just so happy. I think that the only bad thing I have to say about this is that JESSICA LEFT THE SECOND BOOK ON A FREAKING CLIFF HANGER. I was so mad at her.

6. The Amaranth Enchantment, Julie Berry

I’m not exactly 100% sure if this is a YA book, but it’s still one of my favorite, so whatever. This was another fairytale-ish book, where the girl loses her parents, and has to go live with an INCREDIBLY evil aunt, and it turns out that the girl was a noble, but the girl has to go steal a pearl from the prince…yes, I know that makes zero sense, but that just means you’ll have to read it.
