The 90’s Kid Book Tag!

I was tagged by Krystyna @ Turning the Pages: Definitely go check out her answers as well as her very pretty blog!

Rules:

  1. Please, please, please steal this tag and spread it around!  I only ask that you link it back to The Literary Phoenix so that I can see everyone’s answers!
  2. Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s.  Tag someone (or many) you think would have fun with this!
  3. Have fun!

POKEMON:

A GBA game and trading card game where you battled pocket monsters and strived to catch them all.  Back in the day, there were only 150 Pokemon. 

Hitmontop

The author you need every book from: 

J.R.R. Tolkien. He is a master at story telling. I would probably read anything from him. I don’t know how exciting it would all be, but I’m sure I would still enjoy myself.

AIM:

AOL Instant Messaging – how 90s kids communicated with their friends after school before everyone had a cell phone.

giphy (1)

Book that connected you with your best friend: 

My friends from school didn’t read, and the friends that I have now do read but we don’t usually read the same books. If you count my boyfriend as my best friend then I would say The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. He didn’t read the book he just loved the movies and I feel much closer to him now that we have something in common. (It’s a joke. Calm down.)

Furby:

Creepy needy robots you could teach to talk and were probably demon possessed.  Somehow these made a comeback?

giphy (2)

A book that seemed like a good idea, but was actually a monster:

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. I was so excited to read this! Everyone told me the ending was spectacular, and it was a complete and total bust. I just ended up hating it with my whole being.

N’SYNC:

90s quintessential boy band.  You may have heard of Justin Timberlake?

tenor.gif

A book you hated saying bye, bye, bye to: 

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. This book is fantastic. I just wanted more and more from it. It ended too soon and I am devastated!

Slimed!

Getting green slime thrown on you, courtesy of the show Figure it Out.  Also apparently still a thing at the Kid’s Choice Awards?

modern-family2-1427595135.gif

A book everyone loved but you hated:

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I’m not going to explain this again, y’all know why.

Oregon Trail

90s computer game you could usually play at school, which was great.  It taught us people used to die a lot of gruesome, messy deaths.

You-have-died-of-dysentery-on-The-Oregon-Trail.jpg

A book that made you wish you died of dysentery: 

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. This maybe a stretch, but honestly I didn’t finish it and I was just super bored. I felt the need to finish it at the time and I just could not. I wanted to rip my hair out.

Mixtape/CD

Back before everyone had music on their phones (remember, we didn’t have cell phones!) folks would rip their CDs and make mixes for each other.

giphy (3)

Three books you recommend to anyone, anywhere, no matter what:

  • An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Dial-Up Internet

You know how it’s annoying when you aren’t on LTE?  IMAGING WAITING 10 MINUTES FOR INTERNET TO START AND ANOTHER 20 MINUTES FOR GOOGLE TO LOAD!

y6GwjAz

A book that took for freaking ever to read: 

I’m going to take it back to middle school when I read Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. That book took me MONTHS to read. I remember everyone telling me to just finish it, and I just couldn’t find the motivation.

Kenan Thompson

He’s that guy who’s been on SNL forever.  Also Mighty Ducks.  Good Burger.  Keenan and Kel.  All That.  Everything.

giphy (4)

That book you see referenced everywhere and is in everything, but that’s okay because it’s awesome:

The only one I can think of is Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. I know that’s redundant, but it’s true.

Thumbs Up, Seven Up

A game where most the class closed their eyes and seven people tapped someone’s thumb and you had to guess who did it without peeking.

c1c3a5d559b04997ee36e2db21fc4593dc63c20dbc75a0438a25f50a38a29830

Book where you peeked just REAL quick at the ending because you don’t like guessing games:

I’m not going to lie, I have peeked at the ending of a book before. It was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. It honestly didn’t ruin the book for me, and I pretty much knew who it was before I even peeked. Fight me.

Dunkaroos

These were basically just Teddy Grahams dipped in frosting, which is still a wonderful snack idea.

giphy (5)

Your ideal bookish snack:

I don’t eat and read. I have to focus on one thing or the other or else I don’t enjoy my food or understand my book. It’s a struggle, and I’m working on it.

Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark

Collections of short stories that would scare any sensible kid!  Plus, there were illustrations…

246626f11fdf3a533c818e22b1674c89

A book that kept you up at night:

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire was actually pretty creepy. It didn’t keep me up at night but it was one of the few books that I have read that has freaked me out just a little bit. I may just be a big ole baby.

Bill Nye the Science Guy

Basically the coolest thing you got to do in science class was watch Bill Nye.  He has a Netflix show again!

giphy (6)

A book that taught you something new:

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. It taught me that life is too short. You never know what is going to happen, therefore you should always live your best life. Use Bill Nye as an example. He is always living his best life.


That is it for another book tag. I love participating in these, and it’s always fun when you’re actually tagged. I encourage everyone to do this, but I think I will actually tag some other blogs.

Coffee Book Tag!

I stumbled upon this book tag on Book Tag Index but it was created by BangadyBangz.

I don’t really drink that much coffee but a good caramel Frappuccino always hits the spot.

 

Black – a book that was hard to get into but has a lot of die-hard fans

  • Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo.

Peppermint Mocha – a book that gets popular around the holiday season

  • I feel like Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling is popular around any season. I can’t really think of any other book at the moment.

Hot chocolate – your favourite children’s book

  • The Hobbit J.R.R. Tolkien

Double espresso – a book that kept you on the edge of your seat

  • I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

Starbucks – a book that you see everywhere

  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black is one that I saw all over the place at one point.

The Hipster Coffee Shop – a book by an indie author that you love

  • I didn’t really know if any books I read were by indie authors but I guess Colleen Hoover is considered one. I loved Without Merit by her, so I guess that counts!

Oops… I Accidentally Got Decaf – a book you expected more from

  • Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. I was super excited about the ending and it let me down.

The Perfect Blend – a book with the perfect combination of bitter and sweet

  • Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire.

Green Tea – a book that is quietly beautiful

  • Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Chai Tea – a book that makes you dream of far-off places

  • Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire. If that book doesn’t make you do this then you should either leave or reread it. (just kidding. I love you guys!)

I enjoyed this tag and I hope everyone tries to participate if you haven’t already!

Superlatives Book Tag

Happy Thursday! I hope all of you are having a great day. I’m here to bring you a Superlatives tag. Hopefully you like it!

I was not tagged but I did come across this tag on Alysha’s blog FloralReads. Her answers are pretty great so you should totally go check her blog out!

  1. Most likely to be in the movies: The book that would make the best movie: 

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. If you want a movie that will make you feel every emotion in your being, then this would be it. It may not be action packed or fast paced but it would be a good one.

2. Biggest drama queen/king: The most overly dramatic book or character: 

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I swear to you that the characters in this story are the most dramatic characters I have ever read about. Eliza herself is enough to make you want to rip your hair out. This would definitely be a winner.

3. Best dressed: The book with the best cover:

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire. I fell in love with the cover of this book. It’s half of the reason I wanted to read it.

4. Most creative: The book with the most unique plot, characters and structure:

I had to choose between The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. I think I’m going to go with The Golden Compass just because the characters had demons, and there was an alethiometer. It was just very peculiar. The Hobbit is definitely the runner-up.

5. Most popular: The book with the most ratings on goodreads: 

The Hobbit is the book that has the most ratings on my goodreads. I have a feeling I know why. (It’s such a great book, please read it!)

6. Most likely to succeed: The book that is going to be appreciated for many years to come:

There’s not many books for me to choose from that I have read. I’d either go with The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien or Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I’m honestly going to say The Hobbit because so many people appreciate it now, and I’m sure a lot of people will appreciate in the future.

7. Class Clown: The book that made you laugh out loud: 

I am going to have to say I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak. That book is just so funny to me. I just understood the humor and I laughed a couple of times.

8. Most improved: The book that started off slow, but really picked up:

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. The beginning of this book was not good at all, but the ending blew my mind. It picked up as soon as Cady started putting the pieces together.

9. The cutest couple: The cutest couple in a book: 

I thought Cinder and Prince Kai were adorable. I just really enjoyed that book all together! It was adorable.

10. Biggest heart breaker: The book that broke your heart: 

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. I don’t really need to explain myself. It was one of the few books that made me tear up. It’s absolutely heart breaking. SPOILER-Especially when his wife makes an appearance at the end! I just cried.

A-Z Book Tag!

I was not tagged I just spotted this book tag over at The Mud and Stars Book Blog. I’m not really sure who created this, so if you know you can put it down in the comments. 

Author you’ve read the most books from: Philip Pullman

Best sequel ever: The only sequels I’ve read of anything was The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman and Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire and they were not the best sequels. I guess I’ll go with Saga Vol. 2 as the best sequel I’ve ever read.

Currently reading: Eliza and her monsters by Francesca Zappia

Drink of choice when reading: Water.

E-reader or Physical book? Physical book all the way.

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school: Probably Wallace from Eliza and Her Monsters. I am just loving him so much right now. He is very down to Earth and shy and I just adore it.  

Glad you gave this book a chance: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Hidden gem book: An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin

Important moment in your reading life: Honestly, when I moved two states away from my home town I became very sad and lost. When I started one of my first solid jobs I was able to listen to audio books and it sparked something in me. I read 30 something books in like 4 months and I’ve been so happy ever since. 

Just finished: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Kinds of books you won’t read: Romance, hands down. 

Longest book you’ve read: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. (700 pages)

Major book hangover because of: His Dark Materials series. It took me like two months to finish those books including The Books of Dust. I even DNF’d The Amber Spyglass. It was pretty bad. 

Number of bookcases you own: I only own one and it’s only three shelves. It’s not even full. I work at a library and Overdrive exists so it’s easy to just borrow from there. I don’t really need to buy books. I would love to buy all the books but I know financially it’s not a good choice.  

One book you have read multiple times: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Preferred place to read: On the couch. I’ve never been comfortable reading anywhere else. I read in bed probably once in a blue moon. 

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you read: “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting” (The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho) 

Reading regret: Not reading Harry Potter when it first came out. I was never the biggest reader so it never interested me. I’m still not dying to read it but I would like to see what the hype is about. 

Series you started and need to finish: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Three of your all-time favorite books: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin, and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. (Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is a close runner up) 

Unapologetic fan girl for: I’m not much of a fan girl for anything. How lame, right?

Very excited for this release more than all the others:  Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

Worst bookish habits: I always found myself just skimming e-books that I read on my phone. I just didn’t feel like taking the time to read them. My boyfriend got me an Amazon fire for Christmas and I’m in love. No more skimming! 

X marks the spot- Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This book is just letting you know it’s here. Every question I feel like has this book in it. It’s a great story. Worth a read if you are looking for your next book. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea though and I understand that. 

Your latest purchase: If we are talking physical book- I let You go by Clare Macintosh. E-book- Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia 

Zzz-snatcher book (the last book that kept you up WAY too late: I don’t really stay up late to read. It will probably have to be my current read, Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. 

Let me know what you thought of my answers in the comments below. If you do this tag I would love to see everyone’s answers! If you enjoyed reading this post then give it a big ol like and maybe follow me if you haven’t for more blog posts in the future! Remember to be respectful and happy reading.

Disney Princess Sidekicks Book Tag!

Nominated by Kourtni @ Kourtni Reads 

Created by Book Princess Reviews

Mushu from Mulan / Olaf + Sven from Frozen
The Comic Relief – Name your favorite hilarious character or your favorite comedy/funny book:
The Sellout by Paul Beatty

22237161

This is a book that is definitely hard to follow sometimes. There are plenty of funny parts, especially the first page! It hooked me when I started out listening to the audio book.

The Seven Dwarfs from Snow White
Favorite Group/Ensemble:
I am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak.

19057

Ed Kennedy, Audrey, Marv and Ritchie are probably one of my favorites. They joke around with each other but they also help one another in a time of need. This book is drawn out a bit but I would say it’s worth a read!

Pascal from Tangled
The loyal cheerleader chameleon (not a frog, Flynn Rider) – Name a book that started out one way but changed for you:
Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and illustrated by Fiona Staples.

15704307

I know these are graphic novels. They started out really good but by the 4th and 5th I just wasn’t interested anymore. I don’t know if I couldn’t understand what was going on but they started out strong and I never ended up finishing all of them.

Meeko from Pocahontas
Pocahontas’s sly and sneaky raccoon friend – Name a plot twist that you did not see coming:
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

16143347

I think everyone that has read this novel understands why this is here. I never expected what happened in that book to happen. The ending was way better than the beginning. I almost DNF’d this book to be honest.

Rajah from Aladdin / Flounder from The Little Mermaid
Gentle with their princess but protective with everyone else – Name your favorite best friend in a novel:
Iko from Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

36381037

I loved how much Cinder loved her android and vice versa. It was one of her only friends and even though Iko is an android I wanted to be friends with her.

Louis from The Princess and the Frog / Sebastian from The Little Mermaid / Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, & Chip from Beauty and the Beast
The Musical Bunch – Name a novel where music played a big part or made you want to sing its praises:
Amy and Rogers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson.

7664334

I never ended up finishing this book because I checked it out from the library. I know that it is a well-known novel with playlists. They are on a road trip so it’s to be expected.

Maximus from Tangled
The obstacle in Flynn Rider’s way – Name a character that faces a lot of obstacles:
Lee from Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson.

17564519

Since it took place during the gold rush you can only imagine the obstacles this young girl went through. I couldn’t even imagine how difficult it must have been. I definitely recommend this book. If you want to see my review for it you can find it a few blog posts back!

Hamish, Hubert, & Harris from Brave
Favorite family dynamics in a novel:
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.

25899336

The relationship Paul had with his wife and newborn daughter was unlike one I’ve seen in a novel. He tried so hard to be there for them even though he was sick. I hope that one day my family will have the same love for each other! This book is heartbreaking but I recommend it to anyone that needs some motivation.

Ray from The Princess and the Frog / 3 Fairies from Sleeping Beauty
The Advice Givers – Book that most impacted your life:
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

I read this book at first and found it quite boring. I actually listened to the audio book three times before realizing that it has such good messages. It has so many life lessons about finding your own personal legend. You need to realize that sometimes simplicity is actually extraordinary! Please read this book at least once in your life.

25076674

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is another unbelievable book. This would actually fit in “a character that faces a lot of struggles” because Liesel definitely doesn’t live an easy life. It’s back when Nazis were taking control and it will definitely leave you on the edge of your seat.

19063

Hei Hei from Moana
Name a character that steals the show:
Ren from The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti.

8349842

I haven’t finished this novel yet but I can already tell this is very suitable. Ren is a young boy that doesn’t have one of his hands. He lived in an orphanage but was adopted by his “brother” Benjamin. Ren not having his hand catches people’s attention whether it be good or bad. He uses it, as well as Benjamin, to get what they want.

(DNF’d)

Gus & Jaq from Cinderella
Opposites Attract – Name your favorite or worst opposite attracts pairing:
Ginny and Lucky from Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S King.

13528333

I read this novel a few years ago, but I do remember Ginny and Lucky. I don’t believe they ever started a romantic relationship but Ginny definitely helped Lucky find himself.

Simon and Bram from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.

19547856

Oh my goodness! These two were a match made in heaven. I thought it was adorable how they started talking to each other anonymously. I met my boyfriend over the internet and he is the love of my life so I know what it’s like. I think that’s the main reason I really enjoyed this book. The characters are easy to relate with and understand. It’s another book worth reading!

Get to know me!

I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I figured I’d do it anyway. I hope you enjoy.

Can you stop reading at anytime, or do you have to stop at a chapter/page?

Most of the time I need to stop at the next chapter. Sometimes the chapter is too long for the amount of time I have to read so I’ll stop in the middle.

Do you eat or drink while eating? 

Sometimes, but I don’t prefer it.

Can you read while listening to music or watching tv?

If any noise is quiet enough I can read, but most of the time I need it quiet.

One book at a time or several?

I try to read one book at a time but life is too short. I always end up reading several.

Read at home or everywhere?

I read at home most of the time, but if I have time I’ll read in my car or at the park.

Do you read out load or silently in my head?

I can do both it doesn’t matter. I like to think I retain more knowledge when reading aloud.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I never read ahead. If I feel like I need to then I shouldn’t be reading the book. Unless it’s a book I’ve read, then I’ll skip to parts I like/know.

Break the spine or keep it new?

I try to keep the spine in tact but if it breaks, in my case, it means it was loved a little more than the rest!

Write books or just read?

I just read. I used to try to write when I was younger but it wasn’t for me. Who knows things might change.

Last book read?

We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. (Definitely recommend the book if you read YA!!)
