Tag: What Cats Do Book Tag

I found this tag over at Shaz Reads. I wasn’t actually tagged, but I love cats and I love books, so I just went ahead and stole it.


Rules


Purr: as cats do this when they’re happy or relaxed, what is the book that makes you happiest or relaxed?

Honestly, just thinking about Starry Eyes makes me happy!

Sleep: what is a book that put you to sleep or was just boring?

I expected to be enthralled with Fire and Fury after all of the hype, but I was really just disappointed. It didn’t put me to sleep, but it was so boring!

Twitch while dreaming: have you ever dreamt of a book you read?

Yes, I remember very vividly having a dream about the Fallers from Peter F. Hamilton’s The Abyss Beyond Dreams. It freaked me out for quite a while afterward.

Seems to play nice…until the claws are out!: which book had the biggest plot twist(s)?

I kind of saw it coming, but in a good way: the plot twist at the end of Godsgrave has me dying for Darkdawn!

Cuddles: which book character would you give a hug to?

There are many, many characters that I just want to hug, but for the sake of this tag, I think I’ll go with Holland Vosijk from V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series, my favorite villain who isn’t really a villain at all. ❤

Catnip: what’s a book that made you have warm and fuzzy feels?

Emergency Contact! Just thinking about Penny and Sam and their texting and how they’re always there for each other gives me so many warm and fuzzy feelings!

Cat breeds: your favourite book(s)?

This is only the hardest question ever… but I’ll choose three from my list.

Getting the cat: how did you find your favourite book(s)?

Starry Eyes: I saw the cover and knew I would love it. On a whim, I signed up for the blog tour and was approved even though I had like 12 followers at the time!
The Hating Game: I had seen countless rave reviews on Goodreads.
Infini: I’d been following Krista & Becca for a while at that point and had really enjoyed several of their books. Infini featured one of my favorite minor characters from Amour Amour and I just knew I’d love it.

The vet’s office: your least favourite book

Probably The Master and Margarita. I just have memories of slogging through it for my Russian literature class in college and absolutely hating every second of it.

Being in places they shouldn’t: least favourite cliché?

Purposeful miscommunication, and it happens so frequently! Is it really so difficult to have a relationship where you just talk to each other like normal human beings? Where, when the person you’re dating says something kind of weird, you don’t immediately assume they want to break up with you or they’re cheating on you or whatever? I just hate it when I’m reading a book and one of the characters says something totally innocent and another character blows it out of proportion and it gets turned into the main conflict. It makes me roll my eyes every time.

Final question — The good old cardboard box: most underrated book series?

I feel like most of my favorite series are pretty well-known, but one series that I really loved that I haven’t seen getting a lot of attention is Ruthie Knox’s New York series! Truly was great, Madly was absolutely wonderful, and Completely was okay, but still good.

Bonus

Please enjoy some pictures of my cat.


I’m not tagging anyone in particular, but feel free to steal this tag and link back to me so that I can see your answers! Do you like cats? Do you want to show me pictures of your cat? Do you agree or disagree with my answers? Let’s talk in the comments!

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d like to switch places with

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is a difficult one — characters I’d like to switch places with.


Bailey Rydell

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

First of all, Bailey has a pretty cool job. Second of all, she gets to live in a cool beach town. Third of all, she has a pretty amazing love interest.


Penny Lee

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Penny makes some questionable decisions in this book, but she actually has a pretty great life when you think about it. She has a lot of people who care about her and who doesn’t want someone who can make them fancy coffee drinks all the time?


Bennett Caldwell

Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley

Well, Bennett is a bestselling author whose book is currently being adapted for the big screen. Sounds like a pretty good person to switch places with to me.


Lennon Mackenzie

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

Um, Lennon is the coolest, okay? If I can’t be friends with him in real life, maybe I can just switch places with him.


literally any character from this book, but maybe especially Rose Calloway

Some Kind of Perfect by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Rose really has her life together. She’s successful professionally, she has a great family that loves her to no end, and she’s absolutely savage when she needs to be. Honestly, she’s my role model.


Blue Sargent

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

I just love this group of friends and I think it would be so much fun to hang out and go on adventures with them!


Daisy Bell

Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey

First of all, I’d be a successful twenty-something. Second of all, more banter. If you get one thing out of this list, let it be that I just want to be good at bantering all day.


Lauren LeBlanc

The Beau & the Belle by R.S. Grey

I mentioned in last week’s Top Ten Tuesday that I wanted to visit New Orleans. If I switched places with Lauren, I would actually get to live in New Orleans, which would certainly be more exciting than the small New Jersey town where I currently reside.


Lucy Hutton

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

I’ve said before that I’d like to trade places with Lucy. Get to work in publishing (my dream job!) and banter with Joshua all day? Yes, please.


Madeleine Thatcher

The Foxe & the Hound by R.S. Grey

Madeleine is already pretty relatable, but if I could switch places with her, then maybe I’d get my life together and suddenly be very witty.
