The Ultimate Book Tag The 2nd

Alright guys I just want to warn you LONG ASS BOOK TAG ahead. I hope you enjoy!

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
Can't say I do. I will say sometimes I need to take a break but that's just because my eyes can't stare for hours and hours.

2. Which author's writing style is completely unique to you and why?
John Green. And because I said so.
Just kididng.
His writing is unique to me because not a lot of authors can make you laugh out loud and then rip your heart out in just a few pages. I love him.

3. Harry Potter or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer?
Twilight Saga.
-1. Because Edward Cullen is hot.
-2. Because Edward Cullen is hot.
-3. Because i've never read Harry Potter. (Also Edward is hot.)

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books...)?
Nope. I do carry a book in my purse though. It's not only nice to have in case I get bored but it's also handy to fend off any attackers. Especially if it's a big book. Just whack them with your purse and you're golden.

5. Do you smell your books?
Excuse me but that's a very personal question. :)

6. Books with or without little illustrations?
I wouldn't say that I need illustrations but they are pretty cool.

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn't quality writing?
I can't really think of anything. I suck. Bad book blogger.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood?
Um. I remember reading Forever by Judy Bloom when I was younger and there is a naughty word in it that I didn't understand. I asked my mom what it meant and her eyes got really big and I realized it probably wasn't a word I should be saying.

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
Probably the Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?
Eeeek. Umm...One of my Twilight books...or The Host. Not sure.

11. Do you write as well as you read? Do you see yourself in the future as an author?
I wouldn't say that I write as well as I read. I'm an exceptional reader :) I would very much like to be an author someday but I guess we'll see.

12. When did you get in to reading?
I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. However I remember getting REALLY into Y.A. after reading Twilight.

13. What is your favorite classic book?
Grr...I haven't really read a lot of classic books. Does The Outsiders count?
14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?
Yes sir/ma'am it was.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before hand and hated...what would you do?
That's a tough question because I wouldn't want to be rude. It also depends on who gave it to me. If someone went to the trouble to get me a book they think I'd like then I'd probably just keep it.

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games?
Divergent. Because that's not well known.

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?
Bad habit? Gosh I don't know.

18. What is your favorite word?
Delicious. Love.

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
I don't know. I'd say dork because that seems to be the silliest of the three. Nerd would mean i'm smart right? So that can't be it. And I dislike the world dweeb so i'd rather not be that either. Final answer is dork.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Vampires. I don't need to tell you why. If you choose fairies over vampires then you've obviously never read a good vampire book.

21. Shapeshifters or angels? Why?
Depends on the book. I really really like Patch from Hush, Hush. But shapeshifters are pretty cool too.

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
Jacob Black.

23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?
While I love R from Warm Bodies I have to choose Vampires. I'm sorry but zombies are just NOT as sexy as vampires.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
I usually read more about love triangles than forbidden love. However I have read Temptation and Belonging by Karen Ann Hopkins which is about an English girl who falls in love with an Amish boy. And boy oh boy is that some interesting shhtuff.

25. AND FINALLY! Full on romance book or action-packed with a few loves scenes mixed in?
It honestly depends on my mood. For example: I recently read The Darkest Minds which in my opinion is more action than romance. But after reading it I really needed a full on romance that would just be an easy read.
