As in beach buddy or like beach hottie? Hmm… Tyrion? We can just have witty comments, bitch about everyone we see and drink wine all day long! Also, we can discuss books!! But a hottie? … Kelsier from Mistborn? Maybe…

6. To match your ice cream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional sidekick do you pick?

Bookish Scenarios Tag

It’s Tag Thursday!! Do enjoy! ^_^

1.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?

Contemporary: I’ma changing this to SF as I don’t read Contemporary. So the SF book I’d save:

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)
Fantasy:

The Hobbit
Non-Fiction:

Peter Jackson: A Film-Maker's Journey
One Other:

Bridge to Terabithia

2. 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?

If it’s a teenager now then clearly this is the answer:

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

3. You’re not feeling yourself and need a pick me up. Which book do you read to put yourself in a great mood?

The Hobbit

4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years. What book would you most likely have caught yourself reading?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) or Death Note, Vol. 1: Boredom (Death Note, #1) or FanFiction

5. 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?

Only one book? You’re not being serious? I can pack shit loads in that one hour!… Okay, knowing my friends we’d probably take the trip abroad which means flights which means probably 12 hours in total travel time (going and coming back but if it was my ideal trip one way would take 12 hours!) and the book I’d read on the way would probably be Well of Ascension because I need that in my life asap!

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

But of course this would be in the luggage anyway:

6. 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?

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)

7. 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

Is murder them not an option? I would definitely be doing B. I tell people who borrow or look after ANYTHING of mine: ‘You get even a scratch on it (books, DVDs, Magazines etc) and you’re buying a replacement’ and it’s the only time people actually take me seriously.

I tag… YOU!

This was fun xD

Same Time, Next Week!

Game of Thrones Tag

In celebration of season 5 coming out tonight I thought I’d do this tag!

1. How did you discover the series/book? 

Honestly, I saw the TV show first. I think I saw the first 2 seasons in early 2012 and I was just like ‘eh, I don’t get the hype’ watched season 3 as it aired and again, didn’t feel all that interested in it. Even during the red wedding, I wasn’t shocked and just sat there bored like ‘meh, glad they’re dead’ but for some reason Season 4 hooked me and I’ve since rewatched the previous seasons and started the first book last year and love it. I think it’s because I’m older now and understand politics a lot more and understand that fantasy isn’t always about constant magic and fantastical things.

2. Who is your favourite house apart from the Starks and Lannisters?

I don’t particularly like those two houses nor any other house…. I just have favourite characters like Arya, Tyrion…. Who else is decent …. Haha o dear xD Brienne, The Hound… Jon is…. sometimes cool… But I don’t really have a favourite house. Although House Greyjoy have a squid as their emblem ❤

3. Who is your favourite character from the House of Stark?

Arya. Sansa can go jump out the moon door seriously.

4. Who is your favourite character from the House of Lannister?

Tyrion!

5. Who is your favourite character?

Tyrion definitely.

6. Who is your least favourite character?

Dany (hella boring) and Sansa (hella boring). And Joffrey was always a ****.

7. What are your thoughts about the series/book?

What I’ve read of the books so far… honestly? Not exactly the best written book I’ve read, but the info in it is extensive and it’s definitely interesting to read.

8. If you could be one of the characters who would you be and why?

O jesus…. Who lives in the end? and isn’t raped or thrown into battle nor loses an arm nor dies but then comes back. I wanna be one of that character!

9. What is your favourite episode/season?
Favourite episode… Maybe 4×09 The Watches On The Wall…

10. Who is your Game of Thrones crush?

Hmmm…. Who I find the most attractive… Oberyn xD

11. What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming season/book? 

Dany and Sansa dying. I wait the probs won’t happen -_- besides that… I am seriously looking forward to Arya and Tyrions travels and also if the White Walkers make another appearance! =]

Hope you enjoyed that!

It’s tag Thursday! Let’s get cracking! or, a churppin’ (because it’s spring)!

1. How is spring where you live?

At the minute it’s either raining and okay temp. or sunny but cold cold wind. Also at night it is super warm and everyone in the house is dying at night and frozen in the morning -_- Also according to my timehop, this time 3 years ago it was 19 degrees and I was in shorts!! -_- it’s not got above 7 degrees this year yet!

2. Most anticipated book release this spring?

I don’t have many that are coming out between March 21 and June 20 so…

Becoming Jinn (Becoming Jinn, #1)

Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

[From GoodReads]
Forget everything you thought you knew about genies!
Azra has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit.
To the humans she lives among, she’s just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she’s learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.

3. Show us a book cover that makes you think of spring.

Perks or Charlotte’s Web or or car fever [yellow!]

The Perks of Being a WallflowerCharlotte's WebCar Fever

4. Where are you going to read this spring?

You mean ‘are you able to read this spring?’ my answer is probably not but if I can it’ll be in my bed as I’m dropping off to sleep after a long day of doing non-stop work, just like I have been doing for over a month already. Is my final year at uni over with now?! =’[

5. Find a cover with the sun on it!

Warcry – kinda? … 5th Wave [even though it’s not a happy book at all!]

Disney Song Book Tag

It’s Tag Thursday!! Enjoy!

1) A Whole New World – a book that made you see the world differently.

The Rain (The Rain, #1)

The Rain; but in a bad way. I was cautious of the actual rain for ages and was like ‘mother, I am not leaving this house if it’s raining’ and she was like ‘out of all your excuses not to leave the house, this is the most ridiculous. Come on!’ xD

2) Cruella DeVil Favourite villain.

Saruman? Perhaps…

Or gollum? But I really really hate him with a passion…

I don’t know! In books I don’t really think about the villain except they’re evil! With tv however, always rooting and loving the bad guys…

3) I Won’t Say I’m in Love A book you don’t wanna admit you loved.

I don’t have one. I either love a book or I don’t and everyone gets to know my opinion xD

4) Gaston A character you couldn’t stand.

Katniss Everdeen. (waiting for the haters and JLaw fangirls rage)

5) Part of your WorldA world you wish you could live in.

Middle Earth baby! But in the 4th age please? No more wars!

6) A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes – Book of your dreams would be…?

An epic fantasy written by Brandon Sanderson with no romance, kickass pirates and no whiney characters, no YA characters, enjoyable, funny, descriptive (like Tolkien), huge amazing world with awesome magic system and interesting religions and cultures and seedy politics (like House of Cards xD), what else do I want in my ideal book.. dragons? Talking dragons! But not mind talkers like Eragon. O yeah; no white/Caucasian characters, not set in an English speaking country and I want the majority of characters to be gay or bisexual (being white and straight in books is hella boring and repetitive. I’m all for all the colours – even purple aliens – and all the tastes!). Got any like this? Haha xD

Don’t you go stealing my ideas again like you did yesterday! xD

7) Someday my Prince will ComeBook character you would marry if you could?

I don’t get book crushes. I don’t read the books for the romance so why would I read a book in search of characters to fall in love with? … I’m gunna have to pick an epic character for this… Kelsier from Mistborn perhaps… Aragorn perhaps…

8) I see the light A book that changed your life.

Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

Mistborn? It didn’t change my life per say but it definitely opened and changed my book-life.
Death Note definitely opened my eyes to logic/crime/thriller tv and books…

9) When you wish upon a star A book you wish you could reread for the first time?

Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #13)Bridge to TerabithiaThe Hobbit

Mistborn, Harry Potter, The Hobbit, His Dark Materials, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bridge to Terabithia (I’d have to erase the movie from my mind as well though)…

10) Just can’t wait to be king A book with some kind of monarchy in it.

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

The Selection.

11) Colours of the winda book with a beautiful colourful cover.

Elantris Ensnared

Not colourful technically but a book with colours that look good together xD

It’s all mental and crazy and confusing with all the gifs and stuff but o well! xD

I tag… YOU!
