Questions For A Reader

      I was searching through book blogs and discovered this little tag/questionnaire, so I decided I might as well do it so people can get to know me.

Which book has been on your shelves the longest?
      The book I have had the longest is "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White. My aunt gave this book to me in third grade for my birthday when I moved to a new town, and I have kept it since then. Honestly, it is the book that made me love reading so much. 

What is your current read, your last read and the book you'll read next?
      Current: "Witch World: Red Queen" by Christopher Pike
      Last: "Isla and the Happily Ever After" by Stephanie Perkins
      Future: "We Were Liars" by E. Lockhart

What book did everyone like and you hated?
      "Landline" by Rainbow Rowell. I was really looking forward to this book because not only did everyone say they liked it, but I loved all of her other works. I tried to read it, but it was a bust for me.

Which book do you keep telling yourself you'll read, but you probably won't?
      My mom bought me "The Scarlet Contessa" by Jeanne Kalogridis a while ago and I told myself I would read it since she went out of her way to buy it for me, but I probably won't because it really isn't a genre I'm interested in.

Which book are you saving for "retirement"?
      Now I've read "Harry Potter" by J.K. Rowling before, but I still want to read it later on.

Last page: read it first or wait till the end?
      Honestly, it depends on the book and how invested I am in the book.

Acknowledgments: waste of ink and paper or interesting?
      Personally, I think they can be quirky and interesting, but I don't always read them.

Which book character would you switch places with?
      This is so hard because I would literally switch places with any fictional character... if I had to choose just one though... I would go with Rose Hathaway from "Vampire Academy" by Richelle Mead.

Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time)?
      Without a doubt "Harry Potter" by J.K. Rowling. It reminds me of my childhood and all the memories I have from growing up. It also made me a huge fan of reading and that is when I first started shipping people. 

Name a bok you acquired in some interesting way.
      I got the entire "Maximum Ride" series by James Patterson because my friend was doing a book unhaul and she was about to throw them all away because she has a deep hatred for James Patterson now. Luckily her mom let me in the house before she did anything stupid and I grabbed the books and a handful of others and crammed them in by book to save them. I don't particularly like "Maximum Ride" and James Patterson either, but there was no way I was going to let any harm come to those books.

Have you ever given away a book for a special reason to a special person?
      I gave away one of my favorite dictionaries to my best friend because I felt like she needed it more than me.

Which book has been with you to the most places?
      "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern. 

Any "required reading" you hated in high school that wasn't so bad ten years later?
      On account of I'm still in high school, I can't answer that question... yet!

What is the strangest item you've ever found in a book?
      I've found homework and really personal notes.

Used or brand new?
      I don't care. To me, as long as it is readable, that is all that matters.

Stephen King: Literary genius or opiate of masses?
      I've never read Stephen King before so I don't have an answer. My mom loves Stephen King, so I tend to not read the stuff she reads simply cause she reads it.

Have you ever seen a movie you liked better than the book?
     Oh yeah. It is rare but it happens. For instant I love "The Lord of the Rings" by JRR Tolkein, but the movies are way more enjoyable to me.

Conversely, which book should NEVER have been introduced to celluloid?
      Without a doubt, "The Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan. I mean, that movie was SO bad.

Have you ever read a book that's made you hungry, cookbooks being excluded from this question?
      ... Uhm I'm always hungry so I guess?...

Who is the person whose book advice you'll always take?
      Nobody because I have such a wide variety of genres I like that people don't know I like, that I really just kinda find out on my own what books I want to read. I do trust the booktube community a lot though.

I hope you guys enjoyed the tag!
