Avatar: The Last Airbender Book Tag

I was beyond excited when I saw this book tag over on the Sassy Book Geek. I’m a fan of Avatar: the Last Airbender and often rewatch the series to immerse myself in the world and revisit the characters. It was such a great show, and I wish the original had continued. Since it didn’t, I’ve taken to collecting the comics in the huge hardcover bind-ups because the creators and artists share their thoughts about the creative process alongside the comics, which I think is pretty cool and hope will give me more insight into the story and characters.

Avatar Korra was nice too, but nothing can beat the original. I love that both kids and adults can watch and gain much from it. The story imparts lessons without forcing it on viewers and it didn’t take itself too seriously.

By the way, if you’re interested in hearing how the idea for this show came about and the creative process behind it, I highly recommend this episode of the Nick Animation Podcast, which features an interview with Avatar: the Last Airbender creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.

Oh! And this tag was created by booktuber A Clockwork Reader. Okay, let’s start! 😀

Katara and Sokka: Best sibling relationship

I love these two, especially Sokka. He’s my favorite character. 😀 And Katara is such a kind-hearted badass. 😉

Justice League Book Tag

I’m overdue to post a book tag, so here I am with the Justice League Book Tag that was created by Angelica and Rosie, the Book Cover Girls. Angelica and Rosie created the tag last year prior to watching the movie, so I don’t know what their opinion of it is, but they didn’t seem to have high hopes that it would be good. I saw it (because of Khal Drogo as Aquaman) but thought it was crap. Batman basically sat out the whole movie and I didn’t like that Superman part. But anyways…

I was tagged by the Orangutan Librarian, one of my fav bloggers on here, and here are the rules:

  • Copy these rules onto your post
  • Mention creators of the tag: Angelica and Rosie @TheBookCoverGirls and link to the original post
  • Mention and thank the person who tagged you and link to their post
  • Answer all the questions
  • Since there were originally seven members in the Justice League, tag 7 people
  • Also, you can use the images provided, but don’t have to if you don’t want to
  • Have fun with it!

Sunday Brunch Book Tag

There’s a book tag for just about every topic. Since it’s Sunday, I wanted to do a fun, relaxing post to match my mood: The weather is great, so I’m mad chill right now (and lazy). It’s one of those kick-back, chill, and watch Netflix type of Sunday, and I’m loving it.

I couldn’t find a book tag themed specifically for the day (and didn’t feel like creating one), so I was glad when I found this Sunday Brunch Book Tag because the second best thing to do on Sunday (the first being chilling and reading) is to have brunch. I love party brunches, though I’ve yet to make it to one. I’m always too lazy to leave my house to attend them, but they sound so fun! Anyway, the tag…

It was created by Deborah, the Reading Chick, and I was doubly happy to do it because I love breakfast food, so this is now one of my favorite book tags because of all the yummy food.

American classic: eggs, bacon, and toast

Woo!!!… it’s simple and ordinary, but I love it. Easy to whip up and there’s bacon. Bacon makes everything better. 🙂

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Cake Flavored Book Tag

This is probably the fastest I’ve ever seen and done a book tag because I saw this on Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile, yesterday and BOOM! I post it today. 😀

I’d give myself a pat on the back if I could reach it, but I’m too lazy to stretch that far right now.

Anyway, I love me some cakes and books, so I thought “Hell yeah, I’ll do that cake flavor book tag!” I just wish I had some cake while I do it.

Chocolate: a dark book you absolutely love

That photo is actually of a chocolate tart, but I decided to use it because it makes my mouth water. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a chocolate tart and that picture makes me think they’re scrumdiliumcious. I need one in my life!

The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

2017 Year in Review Book Tag

Here’s an interesting book tag created by booktuber Farah of A Booktube Book. She created a similar tag last year where she reviewed the major headlines of 2016 and use them to create book-related questions. The tag below is based on events that took place in 2017.

Note: I didn’t limit the books to just those I read in 2017 but most of them are.

First ever female Doctor Who: Favorite female protagonist

Velvet

The first answer to come to me was Velvet, the titular character in an espionage comic book series written by Ed Brubaker and illustrated by Steve Epting. Velvet works as a secretary at a covert agency, but only few know that she’s actually a spy. The story takes off when she’s framed for a colleague’s death.

April Showers Book Tag

The forecast for my blog today is the April Showers Book Tag, which was created by Sabrina from Beyond the Book Reviews and Alexis, who’s Mad for Books, Luv. Both Sabrina and Alexis created the tag as part of their monthly book tag meme, where they create book tags based on a selected theme.

This is such a perfect tag for the month! In my part of the world, April has always had a hard time trying to decide what it wants to be: warm and sunny, grey and rainy, cloudy and snowy. It’s a confusing month and I never dress well for the weather. I’m always either over- or under-dressed because the weather forecasters are hardly ever helpful. But anyway, to the tag.

Share a book with water on the cover:

Dry by Augusten Burroughs

Dry is Burroughs’s memoir about battling alcoholism.

That’s what I got from reading the synopsis on Goodreads — I’ve never read this book before, but I’m familiar with the cover. I’ve never forgotten it — the cover — because it’s one of my favorite book covers. It implies so much from the title and the effect placed on the words to make it seem as if some sort of liquid has caused the ink to streak down the page. I love it. I might give this one a read one day.

Spring Book Tag

It’s spring!!! 😀 😀 😀

Actually, I’m hoping it will be spring soon and the weather would act like it. I can tell that it’s right around the corner and wants to settle in, but winter refuses to let go. Every time we get a hint of spring in the air, cold winds blast us and snow threatens to fall. Winter just refuses to let go. (It’s so clingy this year.)

Anyway, I found this book tag over on Sara LeTourneau’s blog. It was created by Sabrina from Beyond the Book Reviews and Alexis, who’s Mad for Books, Luv. Both Sabrina and Alexis created the tag as part of their monthly book tag meme, where they create book tags based on a selected theme.

What’s on your spring TBR?
