The Taylor Swift Book Tag

Was I tagged? Nope. Do I care? Not even a little. Honestly, I should probably be sleeping, but I’m all excited

right now. Not entirely sure why.

Anyway, here’s the Taylor Swift Book Tag!

1) We are never getting back together: a book or series you were pretty sure you were in love with but then wanted to break up with

9780142421710_p0_v2_s260x420

Ugh. I loved the first book, Matched, so incredibly much, but after about 30 pages, this book made me fall asleep. Literally.

2) Red: pick a book with a red cover

scorpio-races

This book transported me to a terrible place with one amazing girl. It was beautifully written and I loved every page. Oh, and the cover’s red.

3) The best day: pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic

619RpdGjmwL

This book reminds me of simple happiness.

4) Love Story: pick a book with a forbidden love

Unknown-1

*cue creepy caffeinated giggle*

5) Innocent: Pick A Bad Character You Couldn’t Help But Love

Severus-snape1

I still have no idea whether or not Snape is good or bad.

6) Innocent: pick a book that someone ruined the ending of

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars

*sigh*

Thanks Paige…

7) Everything has changed: pick a book that has a character who goes through extensive character development

Unknown-2

When you have a society that makes you choose one character trait and go through a training to enforce it, it’s pretty hard not to go through an extensive character development.

8) Forever and always: pick your favorite book couple

Like I could choose just one! Okay, fine Percabeth. Wait, no. Wessa. Oh, no, Clace. Honestly, I could go on all night.

9) You belong with me: most anticipated book release

11265077

I’m so ready you have no idea.

10) Come back, be here: pick a book you wouldn’t lend out to anyone for fear of missing it too much

They are my babies and I love them.

11) Tear drops on my guitar: a book that made you cry a lot

17984141

I’m not sure why, but this book made me so sad. I cried. Multiple times.

12) Shake it off: a book that you love so much you just shake off the haters

Throne_of_Glass_UK

If you don’t care if you think I’m insane. I just love this book so, so, so, so, much. I might be a little obsessed.

There ya go! I tag anyone who reads this!

8 Relatable Struggles of Being a Book Lover

Reading is so amazing, and we love it, but there are some serious struggles involved.

1. Wanting to Sleep so badly, then hating the author for writing a book so good that you have to stay up all night to finish it.

2. Having to wait an entire year for the sequel to come out.

3. When your favorite character dies. Again.

4. That cold, empty feeling when a series ends.

5. When you’re at the climax of a story and someone decides that it’s the perfect time to talk to you.

6. Book republished with movie poster covers…ugh…

7. When someone asks to borrow your precious and most favorite book.

8. Re-evaluating your life choices when one of your friends says she hates your favorite series.

Ten Funniest Percy Jackson Quotes

All of the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan are full of wit and humor, but what are the funniest quotes?

10.

“I nodded, looking at Rachel with respect. “You hit the Lord of the Titans in the eye with a blue plastic hairbrush.”

9.

Wow,” Thalia muttered. “Apollo is hot.”
“He’s the sun god,” I said.
“That’s not what I meant.”

8.

“Annabeth?” Percy said again. “You’re planning something. You’ve got that I’m-planning-something look.”
“I don’t have an I’m-planning-something look.”
“Yeah, you totally do. Your eyebrows knit together and your lips press together and—”
“Do you have a pen?” she asked him.”
“Why can’t you place a blessing like that on us?” I asked.

7.

“Now, come over here so I can pat you down.”
“But you don’t have-” Percy stopped. “Uh, sure.”
He stood next to the armless statue. Terminus conducted a rigorous mental pat down.
“You seem to be clean,” Terminus decided. “Do you have anything to declare?”
“Yes,” Percy said. “I declare that this is stupid.”

6.

“Hercules,huh? Percy frowned. “That guy was like the Starbucks of Ancient Greece. Everywhere you turn, there he is.”

5.

“It’s him,” I said. “Typhon.”
I was seriously hoping Chiron would say something good, like ‘No, that’s our huge friend Leroy! He’s going to help us!”

4.

“You’re a stalker with hooves.”
“I am not! I followed her to the Big House and hid in a bush and watched the whole thing.”

3.

“Two hundred Romans, and no one’s got a pen? Never mind!”

He slung his M16 onto his back and pulled out a hand grenade. There were many screaming Romans. Then the hand grenade morphed into a ballpoint pen, and Mars began to write.

Frank looked at Percy with wide eyes. He mouthed: Can your sword do grenade form?

Percy mouthed back, No. Shut up.”

2.

Not knowing is half the fun,” Aphrodite said, “Exquisitely painful isn’t it? Not being sure who you love and who loves you? Oh, you kids! It’s so cute I’m going to cry!”

1.

“It only works on wild animals.”

“So it would only affect Percy,” Annabeth reasoned.

“Hey!” I protested.”

4 of The Worst Movies Based on Books

There have been beautiful stories that have wrapped us up in delightful excitement. Then, of course, there are the movies that ruined them forever.

image

Points for trying Disney, but no. Just no.

image

This was one of my favorite stories as a child, and as much as I love Jack Black, nothing was right in this movie.

image

I haven’t even bothered to watch this movie. Why? Because my friend, who is just as obsessed with the series as I am, told me not to bother unless I wanted the books to be disgraced and ruined in my my mind forever. So yeah, I didn’t watch it.

image

I have been so attached to this series for forever, and the movie just made me so sad. I really don’t know anyone who liked this movie. At all. They changed the appreances and races of so many characters, and they LITTERALLY completely changed the plot. Why? WHY?

Top Five Fictional Sidekicks

DR-WATSON-dr-john-h-watson-11360526-1920-1080

5. Dr. Watson. Now here’s sidekick material. Watson adds just the right amount of sensibility to Sherlock’s reasonable insanity.

Ron7

4. Ron Weasley. Sure, he’s not exactly the bravest lad, especially when it comes to spiders, but he sticks to Harry’s side through everything.

RueOk

3. Rue. She was the sweetest little thing that took care of Katniss when she was hallucinating and covered in tracker jacker stings and whatnot. I mean, normal Katniss is pretty scary, I don’t think I would’ve had the guts to approach her when she was going insane.

Primrose_Everdeen_12

2. Primrose Everdeen. Yeah, she was kind of the reason Katniss got into the Hunger Games in the first place, but she was always there to help Katniss in any way she could.

tumblr_mka9f0le5b1r3g6pqo1_1280

1. Grover Underwood. Though this guy isn’t fearless, he faces his fears anyway to help his friends. Anytime Percy needed him, he was there. Now there’s a true sidekick!
