I Was Tagged Homes'


I was tagged by Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay.@ Book Reviews  here are the questions I was to answer hope you enjoy.

Rules of The Tagged:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people that you have tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.4. Let them know you've tagged them!

1.) What is it about Books that you love the most?
My new vintage encyclopedia set of ten from 1924.
The smell of a really old book is awesome! I love how they can transport you into a world that isn't possible in ours. I love how a book breaks through bounds, how memoirs tell a person's brutal truth, and how a persons poetry sings to you off the page of a book.

2.) What is your favorite Genre and Why?
Some example of YA Supernatural books that I have own.
Young Adult Supernatural Fiction. I am fascinated with the idea of magic and vampires. I am not in a craze over Twilight, do I own the series, sure- bought on sale from Walmart- but I also am collecting Harry Potter and the writing style, the way its formatted the story plot itself is so much better. Young Adult literature is a genre that will always bring me back to my freshman and first semester of my junior year of high school. I changed so much in such a sort amount of time that it still gets me. My freshman year was bliss, I had a best friend a grade above me who knew all the right people, hung out with the cool seniors and I was 'in' instantly and then she left, had to move away, the rest of the year our group began to fall apart and by my sophomore year I was enrolled in the Independent Studies Program my high school provides, which really is just a home schooling program run through the football couch of my high school. My junior year I went back because I missed what I had, had my freshman year, I was missed up and falling into a bad place, I was the girl in the corner at lunch, huddled ten feet from the stoners who sat and read all lunch when the library was not open. I didn't have any friends outside the classroom and  part of me really liked that. Then things started to get too much for me and I went back into ISP, through this all I read, and wrote, and rekindled my love for poetry. I read Young Adult novels, and the Classic's, and Adult Mystery Fiction, and Memoirs. I just started to read.

3.) Which was the first book that you had read in your favorite Genre?
New Moon (Twilight Saga #2), I am not afraid to admit that I picked up the book because I loved the movie, but I will say that I would never wait in line for twelve hours just to see Robert Pattinson. Free tickets to Stage Couch, hell yeah I'd be out there with a tent  and a sleeping bag waiting for the front doors to open.









4.) Which book are you eagerly waiting for to release this year?

Nothing particular really, i just read what ever catches my fancy at my local library. I'm so back-logged on reviewing books I've read in the past that I barely have time to do anything else.

5.) Name your all time favorite character.
Katsa's multi colored eyes.
Katsa from Graceling because she is strong and determined, blunt and handy with a knife. She is adventurous and able to always protect herself, this causes her great sorrow, everything i like in my heroine's. 







6.) If you could suddenly be a part of a story, you would choose to be a part of...?
The Vespertine, or Betraying Season because I love me some dark romance and magic, plus with the Vespertine I could see the future and that is something that would help me out tremendously, not to mention it has always secretly been my favorite power.

7.) One book you simply hated!

Never Let Me Go: I wouldn't say I hated the blog but i disliked it tremendously. The3 story was morbid and sad, the only thing that kept me going was the hope for a happy ending. The happy ending that never came; mind you. It was offal to think that something like that might have been attempted, though the work was fiction.

8.) Which book would you like to see converted into a movie?
Hold Still: The book was heartbreaking. I'd like to see how an actor would handle such a role, how well she would do and how believable it would be. Not to mention stories like that - though this book was Fiction - really happen, suicide in teens is growing steady more and more and the recognition of depression should be brought further into the light.


Portrait of the three sisters.
9.) Jane Austen or Bronte Sisters?


The Bronte sisters, Anne being my favorite sister, her work was eloquent and deeply thick with her emotions, she was vastly underrated by my standards.

















Misc. page from Wuthering Heights.
10.) Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre?

I haven't read Jane Eyre yet, weird? Yes, extremely seeing as how I read both Emma and Wuthering Heights. I love Wuthering Heights, dark romance and all that. I started a new in-the-works tradition where I am determined to read Wuthering Heights the week of New Years Eve.








11.) Do you prefer physical or electronic copy of a book?
My book lovelies.
Physical!!!!!!! 
E-reader's and I hold a deep, hard and forever on-going; mutual dislike for each other. I really don't see the point to the monstrous things, nothing beats a book you can hold and place on a dusty old floor to ceiling shelf. The sum collection of my books, all held in various shelving units and scattered like balled up lined paper in my room, I swear my mother and I have taken over my brother room and shoved in cardboard boxes of books. But I'd never tread it for the world, I like the sight of books. I will be the bride who asks for three things: 1. A study with wall the ceiling book shelves and a wheeled ladder, 2. an extremely large walk-in closet with soft hue lightening and lots of shoes, and 3. an outside Garden, with many, many red, pink, yellow, white, peach, etc. roses.

My Questions:

1. Favorite T.V. series?
2. Your personal muse? 
3. Do you have a nickname? If so what's the story behind it?
4. What is one constant thing you do everyday?
5. What is your favorite heroine?
6. What do you want to be when you grow up? Same applies: Or what are you  doing now?
7. Favorite guilty pleasure book? (I.E.: A book you read a lot because you can't help yourself.)
8. What does the word poetry mean to you?
9. Your favorite memoir?
10. A book that left you reeling? In other words, a book that stuck with you long after you read it?
11. When your in your car what are you listening to? Same applies: what are you mostly listening to on your I-Pod, I-Phone, etc.?

    I love all your answers, by the way! Katsa's multi-colored eyes are a bit spooky but pretty too.
