The Spring Has Sprung Book Tag!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12

Random Quote of the Day: “To love deeply in one direction makes us more loving in all others.” – Anne-Sophie Swetchine

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am officially back with another book tag: The Spring Has Sprung! I know I am a little late with the start of Spring, but it’s okay because it’s still Spring here!! 🌻

💐 FLOWERS 💐

Look on your shelves. What is the most beautiful book both inside and out?

Yoon_9780553496680_jkt_all_r1.inddTHE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by Nicola Yoon!! I think the cover goes well with the Spring-theme as it has so many bright colors! I love this novel, Yoon, and the cover so I think this one is a perfect fit (:

What is a book that you find others like way more than you do?

WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart. I know not EVERYONE likes this novel, but a ton of people have told me to “give it another try”. I just couldn’t get into the beginning and I felt disconnected from the characters.

What’s a great book that lifts your spirits when you’re down?

LG_tumblr-ngcdmtOJvJ1thbbnoo1-1280_1422199718.539There’s so many that I could choose for this one, but it would only make sense if I chose ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Niven. Now don’t get the wrong message — ATBP isn’t the happiest novel, however I love it so much and the characters that it still brings a smile to my face!

This or That Book Tag | Part Two

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12Random Quote of the Day: “Man is what he eats.” – Ludwig Feuerbach

Hello sunshines! ☀ I was tagged by the wonderful Arvenig @ Arvenig.it to attempt to complete the THIS OR THAT Book Tag, so thank you, Arvenig! I’ve already completed a different version of this tag before, so if you are interested in that, you can check it out HERE. Let’s get on with the tag:

RULES:

1. Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @Tea and Paperbacks).
2. Thank the blogger who tagged you!
3. Choose one out of the two options. (You don’t have to explain why you chose what you did… only if you wanted to!)
4. Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!

READING ON THE COUCH OR ON THE BED?

Image result for reading gifHmmm..either or is okay with me. I usually read on my bed 🛌, however, so I think I’ll go with that option! (:

MALE MAIN CHARACTER OF FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER?

Now that I think about it, I think I read more novels with the main character being a female, and I think I enjoy novels narrated in the same sex (female) just because I can relate to the main character better (usually). However, that doesn’t stop me from reading novels with a male main character — those are usually the funny novels, lol.

SWEET SNACKS OR SALTY SNACKS WHEN READING?

I typically try and stay away from eating and reading at the same time, but I think I’m more of a savory person xD But since that isn’t an option, I think I’ll go with sweet because I enjoy fruit snacks and such. 🍦

TRILOGIES OR QUARTETS?

I’ve never read a quartet fully and I don’t pick up trilogies most of the time, but I guess I’ll pick trilogies since I own a few!

FIRST PERSON POV OR THIRD PERSON POV?

This usually depends, but for the most part I enjoy first person. However, either or is preferred depending on the genre.

READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?

At night🌙. I read the most/most efficiently right before I go to bed. I’ll probably fall asleep before I can turn the page if I read in the morning, lol.

LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?

Bookstores!! This may be the reason why I am broke, but I love, love, love how diverse and amazing bookstores can be. I get most of my books online, but exploring different bookstores is always mesmerizing. If I go to a library, I’ll never return the books that I check out and then I’ll have a never-ending fee for life xD

BOOKS THAT MAKE YOUR LAUGH OR CRY?

Again, hard choice because I read books based off of my mood. I tend to pick up books that make me cry more often for some reason, so I’ll go with that. However, a good laugh is always needed!

BLACK BOOK COVERS OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?

Black!! 🖤 The contrast between other colors with black almost ALWAYS looks gorgeous, and with white covers, over time you’ll be able to see dust/dirt more clearly.

CHARACTER DRIVEN OR PLOT DRIVEN STORIES?

One of the hardest questions EVER. Often, I love to see character development in the novels that I read, but if there is no plot or the plot isn’t interesting at all, nothing else in the story matters for the most part. So, I’ll be going with Plot Driven novels! (:

This tag was actually kind of difficult, so I challenge YOU, yes, YOU, to take upon this tag for yourself! I’m not tagging anyone this time, so feel free to consider yourself TAGGED! 💓

What’s the last tag that you enjoyed? What do you think of my responses to this tag? Chat with me in the comments!

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…

Time To Talk About Things We Hate…(+ Love)

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12

Random Quote of the Day: “What worries you masters you.” – Haddon W. Robinson

Hello sunshines!🔆 This tag makes me overly excited for some reason, and I think I might be crazy. This tag, The Love/Hate Tag, calls for making a list of things that you, as an individual, hate AND love! It can be anything — book related, life related, that one person you saw a few days ago that did a good deed…

So, if you are feeling gloomy, angry, agitated…this tag is for you — talk about those pet-peeves or your favorite bagel flavor!! I won’t be tagging anyone because I wasn’t necessarily tagged (don’t tell the Tag Police), but feel free to consider yourself tagged & link me to your post! Without further ado, here are 10 things I Hate 💔 & 10 Things I Love! ❤️

10 THINGS I DISLIKE WITH A PASSION

Image result for purple arrow When people in public don’t clean up after themselves. DID YOUR PARENTS NOT RAISE YOU TO RESPECT YOUR LIVING SPACE!?

Image result for purple arrow Messy tables, desks, etc. Whenever I go to restaurants, I always make sure my table has some sort of organization.

Related imageImage result for purple arrow Being late. Not only when I’m late, but when others are late as well. If a movie starts at 4:30, I want to be at the theatre at 4. Most people when they go to school don’t mind if they are late — I, on the other hand, literally freak out in my mind.

Image result for purple arrow Rude people. Be nice to people, it’s not that hard. Say excuse me in a big crowd, push in your chair, don’t BLOCK THE HALLWAY WHEN PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET TO CLASS.
