The Ultimate Book Tag

What better way to get started with the blog than doing a book tag? This way you can have a quick insight on which books I like etc. As you can see by the title, I decided to start off with "The Ultimate Book Tag" (created by Chapter Chicks). Also: warning, this tag is extremely long, that's why it's called The Ultimate Book Tag.

Here come the questions:
1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
No, I do not.

2. Which author's writing style is completely unique to you and why?

For this one, I'll have to go with Sonya Sones. Even though I like poetry a lot, I sometimes get confused while reading books on verse. It's not that I don't like it (I LOVE POETRY!) it's just not something I'm very used to.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Harry Potter. Okay, so I've never actually read the Twilight Saga, but honestly, Harry Potter is above everything else. One thing that I've heard about the Twilight Saga is that Bella is a terribly stupid character who's emotions seem fake. Other than that, I don't really have any points since I haven't read the other series, but in any case Harry Potter is probably always my number one.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books...)?

I regularly carry a bag, which may contain one book or two, but it's not a book bag.

5. Do you smell your books?
Yes, a lot, actually! It may seem weird but as a booklover, it's natural for me. Books smell so good!

6. Books with or without little illustrations?

Any kinds of illustrations in books are welcome, especially the small illustrations in the corner of a page, they can be really pleasing and nice to see, but it doesn't really matter for me. Books are meant to be read, so the main thing is just to have a good story. (Yes, almost all of the ending rhymed...)

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn't quality writing? (Ex. I read Twilight before I read HP and thought the writing was amazing but read HP and now think Twilight is a little bit of a joke.)
This one is hard, but I'll have to go with Posion Study by Maria V. Snyder. Don't get me wrong, it's
an amazing book, but not as amazing as I first thought, maybe because it's a really hardcore fantasy novel and it was hard for me to get through at first. As I read other similar novels I realised I'm probably not going to finish the Poison Study series.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
This is not really a funny story, it's more of an embarrassing story. Where I lived when I was about 10, a bus full of books used to come to our village since we lived far away from all libraries. I was such a booknerd and I wanted at least three books before I could leave the bus, and I had a hard time deciding on the third. The driver told me to hurry up because he had to leave for the next place, but I just said "just five minutes more, please!" Eventually he got tired of me and started driving with me inside the bus, and that's when I came to my senses and walked off, because I was so scared he'd take me to the next place if I didn't. This isn't really a funny story but the only one I could think of.

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

I have a few, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and The Communist Manifesto are the thinnest books, but I have thinner comic books and brochures on my shelf. These are; The Rat Queens vol. 1, 2 & 3 (comic books) and Detta Vill Kommunisterna (which is basically a brochure about what Swedish Communists want). By the way, I am not a communist, I'm a socialist.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

Probably The Order of the Phoenix, with it's crazy 1000 pages (my Swedish copy is exactly 1000 pages).

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

Occasionally, I think about writing a novel or short story, but I never really get to it. Even so, I can see myself as an author in the future since I'm pretty good at writing once I get started. I especially love poetry and write a lot of poems, which might get published in the future, who knows?

12. When did you get into reading?

I actually have no idea when I got into reading, for as long as I can remember, I've loved it.

13. What is your favorite classic book?

I haven't read that many classic books, only about two or three, so I'll say Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?
In school I'm really good at basically everything. I don't know about your grading system, but in Sweden A is the best grade and I have 12 out of 17 A's. Then I have two B's and three C's, which is also amazing in Sweden. Our grading system goes from A to F where A is the best and F is failed. And yes, I do have A's in arts and English.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated...what would you do?

I don't really know, either I'd keep it (if I didn't already have a copy of it) or I'd give it to someone else who might have wanted to read it. In other cases I'd give it to charity or give it back to the person so they could get their money back. Whatever I plan on doing, I'd probably tell the person who gave the gift, and if they're really a good friend they'd understand why I did what I did.

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

The Magicians! I haven't read the books yet but the TV-series is like a mix between Narnia and Harry Potter and I love the series! It is written by Lev Grossman, and I'm planning on reading them soon.

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while filming?

I always bite the inside of my lips or cheeks... In almost any circumstance, I just randomly start chewing on my own mouth... It's weird but it's a habit.

18. What is your favorite word?

Oh, there are so many.... I can't decide.

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

All of the above! :)

(I skipped a few questions... Even though they were pretty quick.... Shame on me.)
24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

Oooh, really hard one. I think I have to say forbidden love.

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Honestly, I love both. I read almost any kinds of books, I don't think there is any genre I don't like so...

Finally finished! Hope you enjoyed this tag and learnt something new :) Until next time, then! Bye.
