HI guys I am so so sorry I had been away for so so long. Hell, being 15 sucks. I couldn’t even touch 5 books up till now this year. Busy, busy, BUSY!!! But hey, Valourbörn, a super blogger with amazing posts actually tagged me to do this! Go check Valourbörn out because if you don’t, you’re missing out on a lot. (THANK YOU Valourbörn for getting me moving again 🙂 ) Okay, here we go:
1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know that it’ll make you cry? Hmm… Game of Thrones, maybe? I don’t know, everyone dies in there and I have the tendency to love characters so it might be a long and painful ride.
2. Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre. Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. It introduced me to the Steampunk genre and I must say it was really a lot to take in, but he did it nicely.
3. Find a book that you want to reread. Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. God, I am in love with that book. It is written by a fellow blogger too, and it has really hilarious drawings and stories, you’ll laugh like a mad person. So glad I bought it. Go check her blog out at Hyperbole and a Half.
4. Is there a book series you read but wish that you hadn’t? My immediate answer would be those annoying comic books that run for ages, but we’re talking about books here, no? So my answer would be the Twilight series and not with reasons of liking. The series caused me great distress and I didn’t like it at all. I cringed a lot, laughed at absurdity and got annoyed. A big no-no from me. Wish we(my sister and I) didn’t own it. Quite a waste of money if you ask me.
5. If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save? Holy shit. Kudos to all who could answer this without a thought. I think I’d go in and save The Art of How To Train Your Dragon 2 because it’s really expensive and beautiful.
6. Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories? Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Not mine, but it is the book that started this wonderful, sweet, amazing dream of a journey.
7. Find a book that has inspired you the most. The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. This book is small, it talks about being small, but it speaks the greatest volumes I never imagined it would. It taught me that being small doesn’t hurt, dreaming doesn’t hurt, chasing far-fetched dreams wouldn’t hurt.
8. Do you have any autographed books? Nope. Come’on man. No author comes to Singapore. I tried getting an author to sign a book when I was in Paris, but hell, time screwed it up.
9. Find the book that you have owned the longest. Okay, being 15, you guys should understand I honestly won’t have 10-year-old books in my keep. I didn’t even start reading at 5! So, I think the oldest book I have would be Toby Alone by Timothée de Fombelle. One reason why Harry Potter isn’t in this section is because they are not mine. Sigh. This book is 2 years old by the way. Jeez! That is really young.
10. Is there a book by an author that you never imagined you would read or enjoy? Not yet. Though, I just started on Neil Gaiman books, not expecting to really like them but well, I do like them. Neil Gaiman is also a genius.
DISCLAIMER: I am currently overseas now, and the only book I brought with me is Toby Alone, hence, the only picture. My other books’ pictures I have yet to include are: Hyperbole and a Half, The Tale of Despereaux, the Twilight series, The Art of How To Train Your Dragon 2, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and my Neil Gaiman books.
