The Representation Tag

So this is an issue close and dear to my heart because it is something I continue to struggle with personally, and I’m not even talking about representation in media. I saw Ariel Bisset’s tag on YouTube (whose videos I adore), and I want to give it a try.

This tag was started by Iris Moon, which you can check out here!

The Sims Book Tag

So the other day I was surfing through the internet and I found the Sims Book Tag by Hailey in Bookland on YouTube, and I knew I had to do it on the blog. Why? Because I absolutely love playing the sims in my spare time. I’ve been playing it for years because it’s a nice escape from the real world and create your own. I play the Sims 2 and I have most of the expansion packs and did I mention I love this game? I did? Well, I’ll say it one more time; I love the Sims 2.  Continue reading

THE COMIC RELIEF – NAME YOUR FAVORITE HILARIOUS CHARACTER OR YOUR FAVORITE COMEDY/FUNNY BOOK.

Mushu is without a doubt one of my favorite Disney sidekicks ever! I’ve watched this movie a thousand times and I’ve even written about it for school. So, can I pick him for this one, or is that cheating?

My favorite funny book is Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. It is hilarious and it makes me laugh uncontrollably every time I pick it up.

THE SEVEN DWARFS FROM SNOW WHITE

FAVORITE GROUP/ENSEMBLE.

THE NIGHT COURT! The Night Court from A Court of Mist and Fury. I love their friendship, their drama, their everything! They act like family because they are like family, and I LOVE it!

PASCAL FROM TANGLED

THE LOYAL CHEERLEADER CHAMELEON (NOT A FROG, FLYNN RIDER) – NAME A BOOK THAT STARTED OUT ONE WAY BUT CHANGED FOR YOU.

Colleen Hoover does this all the time! I start her books as a lighthearted love stories but by the end I’m bawling my eyes out crying from the same book.

MEEKO FROM POCAHONTAS

POCAHONTAS’S SLY AND SNEAKY RACCOON FRIEND – NAME A PLOT TWIST THAT YOU DID NOT SEE COMING.

 “Story of Your Life” or the movie, Arrival. It has an intricate plot twist that is peppered throughout the story and movie, but you don’t realize it until it happens. It’s so good and unexpected that it makes you question EVERYTHING!

Also, ACOMAF, that whole mating thing? Yeah, I did not see that coming at all.

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.

This is not in a novel but I do love Michael and Rogelio’s friendship in Jane the Virgin. Their bromance is perfection!

THE MUSICAL BUNCH – NAME A NOVEL WHERE MUSIC PLAYED A BIG PART OR MADE YOU WANT TO SING ITS PRAISES

The Haters by Jesse Andrews is a book that starts out at a Jazz camp and turns into a tour of an underage jazz band going from place to place in the South.

THE OBSTACLE IN FLYNN RIDER’S WAY – NAME A CHARACTER THAT FACES A LOT OF OBSTACLES

Katniss Everdeen’s journey was nothing but obstacles.

HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE

FAVORITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL.

I don’t know why but it is hard to find a nice wholesome family without any major drama, especially in YA novels. But recently I read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and I adored the family dynamics from this story. Sure they have their family drama but it’s nowhere near the angst ridden families from other books. The Song girls felt like a real close knit family and it was so incredibly refreshing to see that.

RAY FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / 3 FAIRIES FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY

THE ADVICE GIVERS – BOOK THAT MOST IMPACTED YOUR LIFE.

1984 by George Orwell because it has changed my view on how governments work in the real world. It’s also amazing how he was able to see all this happening in 1948. Having fled from a communist country at a young age, I don’t know what it’s like to live in one but this book was very insightful.

HEI HEI FROM MOANA

NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW.

Cute little Ghus from Saga! He’s just so cute and adorable.

OPPOSITES ATTRACT – NAME YOUR FAVORITE OR WORST OPPOSITE ATTRACTS PAIRING.

Simon and Baz from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. He’s good. He’s evil. He’s bad at magic. He’s good at magic. He’s not in love. He is in love. He’s a mage. He’s a vampire. And somehow with all these differences I still fell madly in love with this pairing. I just love how Baz comes out of nowhere and declares his love for Simon from the moment we meet him.

Okay, I’ll stop fangirling now.

The Full House Book Tag

BookTag FullHouse.png

This tag was created by Rose @ Stuck in Fiction and I was sort of tagged by Jessica @ Pore  Over the Pages

It’s been a while since I’ve done any tag (whether I was tagged or not) but I saw this one and I knew I had to do it. I loved the original sitcom and I’ve been watching the revival on Netflix, so how could I pass up the chance to talk about the Tanners and books? Continue reading

A cheap book/An expensive book.

Cheapest Book: The short answer would be that I don’t know which is the cheapest book in my collection. Throughout the years I’ve learned little tricks to save money when buying books. Some of the cheaper books in my collection are Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Scarlet Letter, some of Jane Austen novels, The Outsiders, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Most Expensive Book: the Avatar comics Library Edition they’re all over 20 bucks, some even go as high as $30.

 

A book with a male protagonist/One with a female protagonist.

Male Protagonist: Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover is the retelling of Hopeless but from Holder’s point of view.
Female Protagonist: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

A book you read fast/One that took you long to read.

Fast Read: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood is among one of my fastest reads, but not the fastest one. My fastest read is Ugly Love but (spoiler alert) it will be mentioned in another category, and I did not want to repeat books. Plus, this gives me a chance to mention this book again.
Slow Read: Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella took me a whole month to read.

Pretty cover/Ugly cover.

Pretty Cover: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Ugly Cover: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins original cover. They were horrendous and misled me to believe it was just as bad when in reality it’s such a good book.
