What is your favorite thing about reading?

You can read literally anywhere.

Which male character is your favorite?

Um how am I supposed to choooooseee?? Let me just list a million, it’s no big deal. I’ll narrow it down to three. Three. THREE. ugh.

  1. Remus Lupin
  2. Percy Weasley
  3. Hearthstone

Which female character is your favorite?

LUNA FREAKING LOVEGOOD. She literally CHANGED MY LIFE.

So:

  1. Luna Lovegood
  2. Alex (Gods of Asgard) (is this cheating??) (there should be a separate section just for Alex)
  3. Professor McGonagall

Who is your favorite villain of all time?

Uhmmm… This is for BOOKS, not MOVIES, Beck, calm down. INNER ME: BUT MYSTERIO WAS SO GOOD IN FAR FROM HOME!!! 

Sorry.  (Mysterio WAS great, but he doesn’t count. Sadly.)

Favorite villain… I’m so tempted to use a comic book character, but their movie versions are influencing me too much… Ugh. I’m going Harry Potter (again) and saying Lucius? Does he count?

If we’re talking ANTI-HEROES, I have a BUuuuuuuUUuuUuunch. (*cough* Kaz Brekker *cough* Gilderoy Lockhart *cough cough*Quirrell*cough*)

BUT MOVIES: IT’S MYSTERIO. (how many times can I mention Mysterio?)

Who is your least favorite character of all time?

Umbridge. (canon Harry Potter Umbridge- I love Starkid Umbridge)crowd dolores GIFjoe walker a ver potter sequel GIF

Which book do you think has the strongest plot?

I don’t know. I really enjoy the Sherlock Holmes mysteries and they’re very well written/plot based. I also loved Macbeth, and the plot. I’ll just say those two.

What gets on your nerves the most in a story (a boring character, an unrealistic plot, etc.)?

DESCRIBING CHEEKBONES

and

USING A REAL ACTOR’S NAME AND THEN USING A CHARACTER TO DESCRIBE HOW HOT THEY ARE

this is such a trigger for me I’m sorry. I almost DNF(ed? What’s the proper grammar here?) a book because of it.

Which book has the best cover (share a picture!)?

Oh. My. Gosh. The Barnes and Noble exclusive of Wicked King. It’s SOOO GORGEOUS!

The Wicked King (B&N Exclusive) (Folk of the Air Series #2)

Do you let people borrow your books? If so, are you specific about how they treat them?

OH ahahahahahahahahahahah Prabhleen knows AAAAALLL about this. I ranted about this in her comments section (sorry)

Here’s the story. I had just gotten my BRAND NEW literature books for school (including Frankenstein and a GORGEOUS Pilgrim’s Progress) This lady (whose daughter only goes to ASL, so she didn’t have the books.) asked to look at my books. I usually try to be Hufflepuffy around others, so I said yes. Very grudgingly.

But I said, “Yes, just please be careful with my books.” She heard me, because she said “okay.” BUT GET THIS.

Let the gifs explain.

ME AND MY BOOKS:

THE LADY:

It’s safe to say NO in this case.

If a movie could be made based on any book, which book would you choose?

A Thousand Perfect Notes. Or my own book. Which hasn’t been published yet.

Which author has inspired you most?

Ugghhh. Hmmm. Two? Three.

  1. JK ROWLING (Cause she’s, y’know, JKR)
  2. CG DREWS (Cause she’s fury-ous + her gorgeous prose)
  3. LEIGH BARDUGO (Cause the PHYSICAL PAIN she can inflict)

What single book would you be unable to live without?

Other than the Bible, I’d say a book of how to treat every disease possible. If you’re talking about YA books, I’d say Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets/Azkaban.


It said to tag people but I’m still hung up on the lady-thing and I’m kinda lazy right now? I just finished a thirty-minute giphy rabbit-hole, so I’m kinda sidetracked.

And since I usually close with a gif, here’s Misha Collins as Elsa.


WHAT DO YOU THINK? DO YOU AGREE? DISAGREE? ARE YOU GOING TO DO THIS TAG? ANY OTHER THOUGHTS? 

PS: SORRY FOR THE GIF RANT.

      okay great! I know some people would be annoyed (like my best friend) (I sent her a link to my blog and she still hasn’t been on… it’s been eight months ahaha)

      Awe thank youuu! I pride myself on having the perfect gif/meme.( I have yet to find a sadder gif than David Tennant/Tom Holland crying and my friend and I are having a gif war over it aha)

      and I will BRING my Hamilton theme song (You’ll be Back) AND my lightsaber AND my Macbeth and perform some crazy thing to SCARE HER OUT OF HER PANTS. *muahahahahah* (to be real I would just smile and wave, bois, smile and wave) (because book destroyers do not deserve conversation)

    okay, but the fact that your favorite thing about reading is that it can be done everywhere is SO TRUE. i love that you can truly immerse yourself in a story just by opening up a book, no matter where you are. you simply just can’t consume a movie or a show this way, which just shows the power of reading.
    AND HEARTHSTONE. YES. i love absolutely everyone in magnus chase truly, and hearth’s personality just warms my heart so much.
    wow i’m surprised to hear you enjoyed mystery so much. compared to the other villains we have in the spiderman universe, such as electro in amazing spiderman 2, i thought his motivations were really weak and his powers didn’t look particularly scary. but it may just be me being biased, because i think electro is such a great and complex villain.
    i love that the suggestions for “what gets on your nerves the most” were: boring characters, unrealistic plots, and your answer was DESCRIBING CHEEKBONES. i am sort of weak for cheekbones tbh so i think we’ll disagree with how many cheekbones descriptions are necessary.
    (perfect use of gifs in this post, may i add).
    this tag is soooo much fun. i’d probably struggle a lot with thinking about my least favorite character of all times, because i think that’s sort of extreme. as much as i agree with umbrige, there are some characters i hate even more than i hate her, but i just can’t think of one that would get the crown of hate, lol.
    amazing tag, beck!

      wow that’s the longest comment I’ve gotten EVER thank you!!

      and HEARTHSTONE AHHH MY HEART AHUIHUHGHHH um I’m not being dramatic or anything when I say I WOULD DIE FOR HIM. I’m actually taking sign language because of him?? (who said book characters can’t affect your life lol)

      I love Mysterio because 1) his powers WEREN’T ACTUALLY POWERS and people could ACTUALLY do what he was doing which actually makes it scarier in my opinion?? Like, someone could actually invent something like that. Also, I loved how he emotionally manipulated Peter into giving him the glasses which was a KNIFE to the heart but I liked it??? (omg I sound so evil ahaha) But Mysterio just fooled everyone and he didn’t need powers to do it- he was just good at manipulation which actually happens these days, so I thought it was important.

      And DESCRIBING CHEEKBONES ANNOY ME TO NO END OMG EVERY YA GIRL DISCRRIBES THE EVERY MALE AS HAVING ‘HIGH CHEEKBONES.’ WHERE ELSE WOULD CHEEKBONES BE? NEXT TO YOUR ANKLE?

      And Umbridge isn’t THAT bad but she got on my nerves ahahaha and I was soooo happy when she got what she deserved.

      THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING (I love long comments ahhh)
