Back at it with another tag! Can ya dig it? Haha.
Got these questions via A Book Lover’s Playlist
(1) Your friend borrows a book and returns it in awful condition. Do you a) Just pretend you haven’t noticed b) Ask them to repurchase it or c) Secretly do the same to something of theirs?
What kind of good friend who knows how much my books mean to me do that? Well I definitely wouldn’t just forget about it. If it’s in really awful condition, they’ll have to buy me a new one. That’s ridiculous. And no more happy book time for them in Cierra’s library haha. Playing devil’s advocate here, if it was their fault that the book was destroyed (like they forgot it somewhere and someone threw up on it or something dramatic), then yeah they would for sure have to repurchase a new one, though if it wasn’t their fault, then I would be more understanding.
(2) Your house has been robbed! Don’t worry, everyone is safe, but your bookshelf has been raided. What’s the book you really hope is safe?
This question is hilarious, haha. A robber that only takes books. Probably Death of a President by William Manchester because I have one of the first published editions from 1967. And I got it for $3 as opposed to the $175 I saw it for on eBay. I’d be pretty bummed if that one got taken. That one and Dorothy Dandrige: The Biography by Donald Bogle because there’s already not a lot of books on Dorothy so losing one would suck, and finally Fragments by Marilyn Monroe. Such a treasure that one is.
(3) Your friend surprises you with a 4 day trip and you have 1 hour to pack. Which book do you bring to read on the way?
Probably this arc copy I have to have finished in a few days, haha. Might as well be productive.
(4). You go back in time for a day to your teenage years. What book would you most likely have caught yourself reading?
CRANK by Ellen Hopkins. Fo sho.
(5) You’re not feeling yourself and need a pick me up. Which book do you read to put yourself in a great mood?
(6) You’re at the bookstore and you hear a teenager telling their mom they don’t like to read, but their mom insists they pick something. You walk over and recommend a book you think is great for people who aren’t big on reading- what book is it?
What a cool question. Probably sounds like I’m being paid to mention Ellen Hopkins in every damn blog I post (Promise, I’m not), but I’d honestly suggest one of her books. Most of them are written in free-verse with a lot of emotion and story packed in, so I think they may be a little less intimidating to folks who aren’t into reading much.
(7) You have to get rid of all your books and you can only keep one from each of these genres: contemporary, fantasy, non-fiction, and one other genre of your choosing. What books do you keep?
Geesh. Going for the big guns on this question. :p
Contemporary: Perfect Chemistry (Book#1) by Simone Elkeles
Fantasy: I don’t read a lot of fantasy so Potter will have to save me on this one.
Non-Fiction: Hyperbole & A Half (and I’ll add a few others for good measure since I’ve included that one already: These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie by Christopher Anderson and Roots by Alex Haley).
Extra Genre: Children’s, Book(s): The Junie B. Jones series. Such sass. Love it.
WOO! Another tag done. Cool questions, right? Would be cool to read your answers to them!
