|Nominated by Christine|
Who doesn't love a good book?!
Christine of Everything is Blogsome nominated me for this fun tag, which was originally created by Noor over at A Little Bit of Sunshine. Even though I don't actually make it to a new book very often (I'm working on that), I absolutely love to read and find books to be such nifty little things. So, as always, thank you Christine, and here are the rules as given by herself and Noor!
Books and Reading: A Book Challenge
- Answer all of the given questions
- Repost the above picture with a link to Noor's blog as well as the blog of the person who tagged you
- You may tag people if you'd like, but it isn't required
(I'm a bit confused on this part, so Noor/Christine please correct me if anything is wrong!)
#1 To be read in April?
Unfortunately, I have no "to-be-read" books for April. Or any specific month, really. I just get to them when I get to them—which, as I mentioned, isn't very often (and this is why I'm not a book reviewer!).
#2 Book series you would like to see as a movie?
The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher! They did make a T.V. show; however, it only ran for one season and had little to do with the books in terms of plot lines. While I enjoyed it, I believe they could have done better things with it. I'd also like to see them finish the Inkheart series!
#3 Overhyped book/author?
There are quite a few... Stephenie Meyer comes to mind. ;) Oh, and Fifty Shades of Grey.
#4 The best book series you've ever read?
Have to say, again, The Dresden Files. Fifteen books and still going.
#5 Book to movie adaptation that was really bad?
Hm... Can't think of any myself. I've heard Eragon was pretty bad, but I've never read the books nor seen the movies.
#6 Books that made you cry?
I'm sure there was one, but nothing comes to mind at the moment!
#7 Book you are reading at the moment?
The Pearl by John Steinbeck. Although this is for a class.
#8 Book series that you just didn't like?
None. I've liked every series that I've had the pleasure to read thus far!
#9 Books you really need to read but haven't yet?
Ooh... The list is huge for this one. Let's start with:
-The classics: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia...
-Throne of Glass (Sarah J. Maas)
-The Iron Druid Chronicles (Kevin Hearne)
-The Shadowmagic Trilogy (John Lenahan)
...I could go on.
And, last but not least, Christine's question!
#10 What was the first book you really loved?
If I remember right, it was Inkheart by Cornelia Funke!
Alrighty. Now I'm supposed to come up with a question, right? Here we go.
If your favorite book was being turned into a movie, who would you cast as the main character?
Thanks again for the nomination, Christine! I'm not going to tag anyone specific, but please go for it if you're interested in doing this!
