I’m pretty proud of myself for doing this tag and posting it ON TIME for the event it’s for. I was tagged by Heather, the Sassy Book Geek, (thanks for tagging me!!) and the tag was created by CC’s Books.
A stand-alone book you love:
In Search of Lost Dragons by Élian Black’Mor (illus.) and Carine-M (illus.)
There are many stand-alone books I love but I chose In Search of Lost Dragons because it’s been a while since I’ve mentioned it. It’s an illustrated book packaged to look like the travel journal our protagonist carries as he documents the existence of dragons in Europe. If you love dragons and great illustrations, I highly suggest you check out the book. The illustrations are beautiful and I love all the little notes and maps in it.
A dystopian book you love:
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
I almost chose The Hunger Games. I enjoyed reading Suzanne Collins’s book, but I liked Station Eleven more. My favorite thing about Station Eleven is how magical it makes our current time seem because of the ease of technology. It’s another good book to read.
A book you love but no one else talks about:
The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron
I hardly ever hear anyone talk about T.A. Barron’s Merlin series and it’s such a good story about Merlin’s formative years. I think I read it around the same time that I discovered Tamora Pierce, Robin McKinley, and Harry Potter. It’s an entertaining read and I loved it at the time because I was curious about Merlin. I think I read T.H. White’s Once and Future King books right before picking up Barron’s series.
Your favorite book couple:
Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan, illus. by Fiona Staples
I almost mentioned The Night Circus, but I think I talk about it too much on here already. I instead went with Marko and Alana from Saga because I love how supportive there are of each other in the few volumes I’ve read thus far, and that they are badasses. By the way, Saga is such an entertaining comic book series. I highly recommend it. Marko and Alana are on the run from their governments, which are at war against each other. The artwork is great and crazy.
A book that other people love but you haven’t gotten around to reading:
Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat
Ooohh!! I so want to read this! I’ve heard such good and bad things about it that I’m curious to see what I think.
A book with Red on the cover:
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Quite a haunting read about slavery and the effects of slavery. It was unsettling and both angered and scared me (it creeped me out, probably cause I watched the movie first), but it’s a great story that all should read.
A book with Pink on the cover:
Zodiac Starforce, #1 by Kevin Panetta, illus. by Paulina Ganucheau
I actually don’t know what this is about, but I’ve heard it’s good. I got it last year at a comic book expo. The bright cover caught my eye.
You were given a box of chocolate. What fictional boyfriend/girlfriend gave them to you?
Lol! 😀 My box of chocolates comes with a lap dance. 😉
You are single on Valentines Day. What book would you read? What TV show would you watch? What movie would you watch?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Lol. Okay, so it’s not fitting for V Day, but it’s what I’m reading now so the answer is I’d read whatever I’m currently reading.
I’m kinda hooked on Grimm so I’d probably watch that. It really depends on my mood, though. If I want some action, I’d probably choose Last Ship, and if I want something sweet and sort of romantic, I’d probably look up episodes of the Good Witch or Fixer Upper.
The Lego Movie
I want to watch the Batman Lego Movie so I think I should watch the Lego movies first.
You are in the bookstore. All of a sudden, you get shot by Cupid’s arrow. What new release will you love?
Map of Days by Robert Hunter (illus.)
Map of Days is published by NoBrow Press, which publishes some beautifully illustrated books. So far, I only own their Wild Animals of the North by Dieter Braun, which I plan to read and review this year. I love the illustrations.
Spread the love!
And that means I tag everyone who sees this post.
I hope you all have a wonderful V Day, whether you’re celebrating it or not. 🙂
