Sense8 Book Tag [Original]

Hello!

Welcome to my first ever ORIGINAL tag. I’ve looked around on the Internet and I haven’t come across any tags based on this amazing show, but if I missed one please let me know. I’m not trying to steal credit from anyone. Since the announcement after the release of season 2 that Sense8 was being cancelled, I’ve wanted to create this tag. Now that we’re getting some closure, I’m even more excited to spread my love for this show.

So, let’s get on with the tag!

1) Will – a character who has a complicated relationship with their family. 

28763485

Natasha, from The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. Natasha loves her family, and she does everything she can to take care of them, but she has a very complicated relationship with her father, just like Will. Natasha blames her father for her family’s impending deportation, and isn’t quite sure how to deal with how much he’s changed from the man she worshipped as a child. Throughout the book she explores how her relationship with her father has evolved, and why they’ve grown so apart over the years.

2) Riley – a character haunted by their past. 

six2bof2bcrows2bduology

Kaz Brekker, from the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. Kaz had a rough childhood to say the least. He grew up in the slums, with hardly anyone to take care of him, or to help him get by. He’s a fighter, but he’s haunted by the past he shared with his brother, and the memories associated with his brother left him scarred, and unable to handle human touch.

3) Kala – a character that must choose between following their heart, and doing the “practical” thing. 

28458598

Dimple, from When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. Dimple’s family wants her to be happy, but their idea of happy is her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband”, not going to school and becoming an independent, educated woman (who don’t need no man). Throughout the story, Dimple struggles with satisfying her family, following her dreams, and determining where a boyfriend or husband fits into this equation. She reminds me a lot of Kala, who struggles in a very similar situation.

4) Wolfgang – a rebel/fighter with a heart of gold. 

ember

Elias, from the An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir. Elias isn’t a rebel from the get-go, but early on in the first book, he realizes he can’t ignore what his heart is telling him – that everything he has been raised to believe is wrong. He has a heart of gold, and he very soon realizes that he must change who he has become, in order to become a better person, no matter the consequences.

5) Lito – an over-the-top drama queen. 

29283884

Monty, from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I think about 90% of Monty’s interactions with his sister are her telling him to get over himself, grow up, and stop being a baby. To be honest, though, I can totally relate to Monty’s incredibly low pain tolerance and hypochondriacal tendencies.

6) Nomi – a tech-savvy character. 

13206828

Cress, from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Cress is one of my favorite characters from the Lunar Chronicles, not least because she is so good with technology. I’m always very jealous of characters that are tech-savvy, because electronics seem to break any time I enter the same room as them. Seriously, it’s uncanny how bad I am with technology (though my mom is worse).

7) Sun – a badass female character. 

26156203

Vika, from The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye. Vika is an enchanter, and she’s definitely badass. During her competition with Nikolai, to become the royal enchanter, she is vicious and fearless, never backing down or going easy on him. Each time it is her turn, she does her very best to one-up him, and prove that she is better. She will do anything to stay alive, no matter the consequences.

8) Capheus – a cinnamon role who tries to make the best of a bad situation. 

29283884

Percy, from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I won’t go into too many details here, but Percy doesn’t have the greatest life. Despite this, he’s hopeful, upbeat, and happy. He never lets anyone see his pain, and does his best to be their for Monty, without putting his burdens on anyone else. Basically he is the sweetest of all the cinnamon rolls.

9) Sensate – your favorite band of renegades. 

10576365

The whole crew from The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken. All of the characters in this trilogy are so perfect, and I love how much they all care for each other, even though they don’t have to. They’re an eclectic group, but that doesn’t stop them from being a tight-knit family over the course of the books. They’d all do anything to protect each other, and they love each other deeply.

10) Whispers – the most terrifying villain. 

200px-5th_wave_book_cover

The visitors/aliens from The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. The thing that makes these villains so terrifying is no one understands who they are, or what they want. They could like like anyone, so you can’t trust anyone, sometimes not even yourself.

11) Season 3 – a book or series that you wish would go on forever. 

six2bof2bcrows2bduology

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I could read a thousand books following these characters. Can each individual character get their own spin-off series, please? It’s so good. All the characters are beautiful and amazing and I can’t even describe how much I love it.

12) Blockers – a book you wish you could just block from your mind. 

9780060234935_251

The Last Battle by CS Lewis. This book completely destroyed my love for this series. The tone shift was so unnecessary and disconcerting, and I really didn’t appreciate the racism, misogyny, and just general awfulness that got put into this conclusion. I wish I could erase my memory of this book and retain the innocence of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 

I’m not going to tag anyone in this, since I’m not sure who’s seen the show. However, if you love Sense8 like I do, feel free to do this tag! I’d love to see some other people do it 🙂 

Have you seen Sense8? Who is your favorite character? Are you excited for the new movie? Tell me in the comments!

Book Tag: 4th of July

Hello!

Happy 4th of July/Independence Day to all my fellow Americans out there! Bring on the patriotism! (and fireworks)

I found this tag, and it seemed fun, plus it’s pretty short so I can get through it pretty quickly and get a post up today in time for my dinner/game night with neighbors. (We’re going to have so much food and I am SO ready) So, without further ado, here’s the tag!

636129231573002846-291561714_635920627891520484-247334876_american20flag

1. Show off a red book, a white book, and a blue book you’ve read. 

wrathcover                         32075671                        30653853

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I love all three of these books for such different reasons, and they all hold special places in my heart. If you haven’t read all three of these, I’m not sure what you’re doing with your life.

2. Favorite rag-tag group of revolutionaries. 

tumblr_static_bidkivd0nio84kkcgggs4ocwo

All my babies from The Darkest Minds trilogy. But especially Zu… Zu is mine and she will not be hurt and if you touch her I will end you. Leave my babies in peace. They deserve it.

3. A book that takes place in one of the 13 original colonies. 

51yd0qrsr6l-_sx328_bo1204203200_Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is one of my favorite contemporaries of all time, so how could I not choose it for this one? It’s set in Georgia.

4. A book that takes place in England. 

clockwork_angel_1

I’m wayyy overdue for a reread of this trilogy. I’ve only read it once, and that was almost five years ago. Set in London, this book follows my absolute favorite characters from the Cassandra Clare’s books.

fireworks

5. Fireworks – A book that ends with a bang!

9780060234935_251

…… I may have been a little too literal for this one…. *coughs*

6. Show off 3 books on your TBR (one red, one white, one blue)

71njqs9rawl                                 darkershadeofmagic1                    31449227

A Feast for Crows by George RR Martin, A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab, Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

Do I get bonus points because Ramona Blue has all 3? I’ve been meaning to read the first two books on this list for AGES, and Ramona Blue is a recent discovery that I am soooo incredibly excited for. I’m hoping to get to all of these really soon.

 

How are you celebrating 4th of July? What book are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

Book Tag: Avatar – The Last Air Bender

Hello!

Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of my favorite shows when I was little, and the amazing characters still stick with me today. When I saw A Clockwork Reader do this tag,  I got so excited. Bringing one of my favorite childhood tv shows to the world of books. The way this tag works is twelve questions, 3 for each nation/element in the show (water, earth, fire, air). So, without further ado, the tag!

avatar__the_last_airbener_element_artwork___water_by_thepagal-d6humwi

1. Sokka and Katara – Best sibling relationship

16109340

Jude and Noah’s relationship has it’s ups and downs, but that makes it that much stronger. I haven’t read a lot of books with good sibling relationships, but this is definitely one that’s stuck with me over the years. The book has beautiful writing, and you get so attached to these two as you go through their story.

2. Yue: Favorite star-crossed lovers

theenchanters

Nikolai and Vika from The Crown’s Game

These two have such an interesting relationship. From the very beginning, they are pitted against each other, and they know only one of them is going to get out of this competition alive. Still, they find a way to connect with each other, in a way that wasn’t insta-lovey. I also loved how their characters developed over the course of the duology.

3. Blood-bending: Book with a disturbing/unsettling topic

51lktqmvkxl-_sx329_bo1204203200_

This duology is amazing, but it’s premise, the idea that Hitler’s forces and the Axis powers won WWII is deeply unsettling. I can’t imagine what horrors would have taken place in that world.

 

avatar__the_last_airbener_element_artwork___earth_by_thepagal-d6huo4x

4. Toph: Character whose strength surprised you/the characters in the book

9ca41ed85b792d5642661e059edc0d2c

5. The Tales of Ba Sing Se: Best short story/poem collection

25453426Through the Dark is definitely the best novella collection I’ve read to date, though I definitely need to read more. I don’t read many short stories or poetry, so I had to go with a novella bind up for this one, and Through the Dark is by far my favorite.

6. Kyoshi Warriors: Best warrior character

9fd8af1a1c88a1d69a76663a2c02aa9f
Photo Source: HERE

Manon, from Throne of Glass. I love that she just doesn’t take any crap from anyone, but she also has a soft spot for her wyvern. Once she lets you in, you’re in. But, if she hates you, you better watch yourself.

avatar__the_last_airbener_element_artwork___fire_by_thepagal-d6huoki

7. Zuko: Best redemption arc/redemption arc that should have happened

56e04e9e13a93c2c2190d27f6f317b8e
Photo Source: HERE

The Darkling from Shadow and Bone. UGH I want a redemption arc so badly. I had so much hope at the beginning of this series, and just. Nope.

8. Iroh: Wisest character

8712120

I honestly loved Brimstone so much when I first read these books. He’s so wise and sassy, and such an amazing parental figure for Karou. I want so much more Brimstone in my life!

9. Azula: Best downfall

I had to go with The Darkling again for this one. It just came so far out of left field for me, and that was the first time I’d read a book that does this. It was so infuriating but also really interesting and exciting.

avatar__the_last_airbener_element_artwork___air_by_thepagal-d6huorf

10. Appa: Favorite fictional animal/pet

harrypotter_wb_f1_harrypotterwithhedwig_still_100615_land

Hedwig… Beautiful, beautiful owl. If you don’t love Hedwig and her sass I don’t know what’s wrong with you. Fiercely loyal and proud. Such a good companion for our little baby Harry. Too good for this world…

11. Aang: purest cinnamon roll

darkest_minds_by_thevampiresheep-d7iae4h
Photo Source: HERE

Is there any character more pure than “Little Buddy”? I mean seriously. He was so sweet, so gentle. I could also put Zu in this category of cute cinnamon rolls, but Jude won out…. Because reasons.

12. Avatar State: a stubborn character/character that struggles with letting go

a877c9b75f1e09de33800f93108acd18-d9evjp1
Photo Source: HERE

Yeah… I don’t think there are many characters that are more stubborn than Aelin from Throne of Glass. Tell her not to do something? Too bad, she’s probably already done it.

 

Did you watch Avatar: The Last Airbender as a kid? Who was your favorite character? Mine was always Katara. Tell me in the comments!

Book Tag: You’re Not Good Enough

Hello!

I saw this tag, and thought it would be fun. It was created by ReadLikeWildfire, and the way you do it is you write down 30 character names, and then for each question, draw two characters. Then, from the two names you drew, you have to pick which of the two characters you would rather be in this particular situation. One character will be your “champion” the other is “not good enough.”

1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles) VS Lysandra (Throne of Glass)

Ooohhhh. I’m going to have to go with Cress for this one. She’s a hacker, and a brilliant one at that, so even though she might not have had any real formal education, I feel like she would be best for this kind of thing. Lysandra’s more of a physical fighter than an intellectual one in my opinion, so sorry! You’re not good enough, Lysandra.

2. Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?

Harry Potter (Harry Potter) VS Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)

Oh. I don’t really think I’d win a fight with either of these two. But, if I could get rid of one of them first, I’d probably want to get rid of Harry first, because you can’t fight against Avada Kedavra. While Percy has powers of his own, I think they’d be a little easier to fight than just pure magic. So, sorry Harry, but I’ve got to kill you first…

3. You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette an you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose too?

Rhysand (A Court of Thorns and Roses) VS Maxon (The Selection)

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Wow. How am I supposed to pick between these two? They’re both so amazing in so many different ways. I think for this one I might have to go with Rhysand, but only because of the magic perks and the beauty of Velaris. Plus, I’m not quite sure I’d be ready to be a queen, which is a responsibility that comes with giving my rose to Maxon.

4. You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?

Thorne (The Lunar Chronicles) VS Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

Hm… I think Thorne would probably be more likely to volunteer in my place (or in anyone’s place for that matter). Not only does he have a heart of gold, he also has a bit of a hero complex. So, this would sort of be the perfect opportunity for him to prove himself worthy.

5. You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?

Inej (Six of Crows) VS Jaime Lannister (Game of Thrones)

LOL. Well, first off, I am a vegetarian. So this in any case would be EXTREMELY difficult for me. But, in this case, I would definitely rather eat Jaime. While I don’t particularly hate him, I love Inej far too much to kill her.

6. You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own tv show of course), who is your sidekick?

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles) VS Jude (Legend)

Oooooohhhhhh. Can I pick both? I mean both would be good. I think for this one I’m going to go with Cinder, though, because while Jude is amazing, I think Cinder just has a slightly wider array of skills. Plus, she’s a cyborg, so she’s slightly less destructible than a human. So, Cinder would probably be the sidecick I’d want.

7. You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?

Aedion (Throne of Glass) VS Kaz (Six of Crows)

Oh, interesting. I feel like both of these people would actually be really good at sales in general, because Aedion’s such a sweet-talker and Kaz is Kaz. I think Kaz would be better for this one though, because he’s already sort of the perfect manipulator, so I’m going to fire Aedion for lack of communication skills.

8. You’ve just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?

America Singer (The Selection) VS Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings)

Hm… I’m not sure about this one. On the one hand, America might be better at comforting people, but I also think she might be a little too busy with her own problems to pay attention to anyone else. On the other hand, Gandalf isn’t much of a comforter. So, I think I’m going to go with Mer on this one. But I’m not sure that either is a really great option.

9. Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?

Etta Spencer (Passenger) VS Day (Legend)

I think for this one I’m going to pick Day, although I think both of these people are going to be background characters in the high school scene. Etta would be too much of a band geek to be a part of the popular clique. While I’m not sure Day would really enjoy being a part of the popular clique, I think he would be popular with the girls just because of his reputation. So, he’d be the one the popular girls all fawn over, even if it was completely unintentional and unwanted.

10. The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?

Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones) VS Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)

HA. This one is quite amusing. Cersei, definitely. She probably wouldn’t even know who I was, and if she did, she’ probably deliberately ignore my birthday just because she’s that rude. I think Tyrion would throw the most epic of all parties, and I really want that to happen now. Can I hire Tyrion to plan my birthday party?

11. You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?

Sansa Stark (Game of Thrones) VS Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter)

Oh, please let Dumbledore have a YouTube channel. That would make my life. I’m going to go with Sansa on this one, though, because I feel like her makeup tutorials and OOTD’s would be AMAZING. She’d also have some really fun DIY crafts and stuff, too.

12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?

Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter) VS Nicholas Carter (Passenger)

Obviously, I’m going to go with Nicholas for this one, because yes. However, I feel like it would be really, really hilarious to see Voldemort over for movie night and nail-painting. Just picture it. Do it.

13. Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?

Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson) VS Kvothe (The Kingkiller Chronicles)

I think I’m going to have to go with Kvothe on this one. I love Annabeth, but Kvothe is such an interesting person, and he has so many different sides to him, where I feel like Annabeth is just a little bit more one-dimensional, and maybe a little bit too similar to me.

14. You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?

Rowan (Throne of Glass) VS Aelin (Throne of Glass)

Rowan. Definitely Rowan. I feel like Rowan wouldn’t even own a cell phone to begin with. He just has no sense of technology. None whatsoever. Plus, I think Aelin would be on the opposite end of the spectrum, she would never put her phone down.

15. You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!

Arya Stark (Game of Thrones) VS Bilbo Baggins (The Lord of the Rings)

Yes. Bilbo Baggins please. Hobbit food and parties and homes? YES please. Arya’s younger than I am, so I don’t feel like she’d make the best mother. Though I’d definitely take her as a younger sister if I got that option.

This tag was super fun. I’m going to tag Clara from @Lost in My Library, because I’m that annoying friend who’s going to tag her in everything I do. 😀

Tea Book Tag

Hello!

I was looking for some tags to do, and I came across this one. I have loved tea since I was a little kid, when my Grammy used to have tea parties with me and I would just be drinking milk out of a plastic teacup. Now that I’m older, I obviously drink real tea, and a lot of it, too. I’ve never been a coffee person, so tea has provided a spectacular substitute and has become one of my closest friends over the past few years. So, as soon as I came across this tag, I knew I had to do it.

1. Double Bergamot Earl Grey – a robust, deep, intellectual, and flavorful book

the-great-gatsby

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’ve read this book twice, once for fun, and then once for school. Both times I read it I absolutely loved it, and each time I was blown away by how much thought was put into this book. You could analyze this books for years and never find everything that Fitzgerald put into it. It’s just a masterful work of fiction, and a read from which everyone can take something.

2. Tim Horton’s Steeped – a book you read on the go that you keep coming back to

412xh9uvpbl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

While I have only read this book once, the first time I read it was on a 6-hour road trip, and  I’ve never quite gotten over it. It’s one of the most relatable books I’ve ever read, and despite the fact that I read it a few years ago, I still think about it all the time. I should probably reread it soon because I’m starting to forget some of the details, and I miss all of the characters.

3. Meyer Lemon – a tangy, fast-paced read, gone before you’ve fully savored the flavor

16143347

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I wouldn’t necessarily call this book fast-paced, but it certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat. Also, because it’s such a short book, you really don’t get much of a chance to savor it, but I also don’t think it needs to be any longer. It’s a quick, short read that packs quite a punch.

4. Chamomile Lavender – a relaxing, calming, late-night read

harry_potter_and_the_sorcerers_stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

I think the whole series could apply here, actually, but particularly this first book. They’re all so small and cute and innocent, and their world was still so pure. In today’s world, which isn’t so cute and innocent, this serves as a pretty great substitute for some calming, before-bed reading.

5. Lady Grey – a smooth, subtle, classic book, perfect for a serene winer morning

barnes-and-noble

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

I don’t really know what it is about Jane Eyre that feels so wintery to me, but it seems like the perfect book to read on a snowy winter morning. Something about the English countryside setting and all of the characters’ stories just reminds me of a cold, gray winter morning where you just want to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and stare at the world outside.

6. Orange Pekoe – a popular novel that everyone’s read

the_fault_in_our_stars

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This one has kind of fallen out of favor in the past couple of years, but I think that’s mostly because everyone has already read it. This book was so popular a couple of years ago that it seemed like everyone was talking about it. The movie came out, people went to see it, and I think a lot of us hold a special place in our hearts for this book.

7. English Breakfast – a British classic

pride-and-prejudice_bn

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Could you get more British or more classic than Jane Austen? I don’t think so. And, Pride and Prejudice is probably her most famous work, or at least the one people are most familiar with. This one has been a classic for a long time, and I don’t see that fact changing any time soon.

8. Canadian Breakfast – a title that tastes a little like English Breakfast, but reads like the New World (and Early Canadian or American work)

1852

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

I didn’t really know what to put for this one, but this was the earliest American work that I could think of off the top of my head that I’ve read. I read this one in middle school, and while it wasn’t great, I did enjoy it.

9. Green – a healthy book that feeds your mind

220px-thehelpbookcover

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I don’t read a lot of “self-help” or anything like that, but I think this book provides a healthy dose of reality for readers. It’s certainly an eye-opening book that shows some different perspectives. On top of that it’s just an all-around amazing book, so, what’s not to love?

10. Iced – a sweet summer treat, brewed for the lazy brief days of summer

51yd0qrsr6l-_sx328_bo1204203200_

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I really need to reread this one, and I’m planning on doing it soon. You don’t get much cuter or sweeter than this book, and it’s perfect for a hot summer day when you can curl up in the sunshine and drink some iced tea and eat an entire pack of Oreos.

Since this is a tag, I suppose I should tag some people. I’m going to tag Clara from @Lost In My Library, and Nicole from @Feed Your Fiction Addiction.  Enjoy!

Tag: 2017 Reading Resolutions

Hello!

I wasn’t tagged to do this by anyone, but I saw Jessethereader do it on YouTube and I couldn’t resist.

1. An author that you’d like to read that you’ve never read before. 

Robin Talley – I’ve heard such amazing things about all of Robin Talley’s books, so I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to pick up at least one of her books at some point this year.

2. A book you’d like to read. 

51waazcd2ul-_sy344_bo1204203200_Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh is a book that I’ve been meaning to pick up for years, and I finally got my hands on a copy. I can’t wait to pick this one up very soon, because I already know I’m going to love it so much.

 

 

3. A classic you’d like to read. 

wuthering-heights-schalabiI’ve owned Wuthering Heights for almost ten years and haven’t yet gotten around to it, which is so sad in so many ways. This book is a part of a list of 12 classics that I made it a goal to get through in 2017, and you can see the full list here.

 

 

4. A book you’d like to reread.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’ve read this book twice since it first came out, but it’s been almost two years since I read it last, so it’s definitely time for a reread.
the_book_thief_by_markus_zusak_book_cover

5. A book you’ve had for ages and want to read.                                                                                                              51sia1m0lcl-_sx330_bo1204203200_The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons is a book that I’ve been meaning to read for almost two years, but for some reason it’s never quite made it off my shelf. I don’t really know why I haven’t picked this one up yet, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to pick this book up soon.

6. A big book you’d like to read.

22571542I am Radar by Reif Larsen. I don’t know a lot about this book, but my neighbor gave it to me, and she’s never given me a book that I haven’t loved. This one is nearly 700 pages, so it definitely counts as big, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to pick it up at some point this year.

7. An author you’ve read in the pas who you’d like to read more from. 

Marie Lu – I’ve read the Legend trilogy, and it’s one of my favorite trilogies of all time. I haven’t yet picked up The Young Elites, and the first book in the Warcross series is going to be coming out later this year, so I definitely want to pick up more of her books this year.

8. A book you got for Christmas you want to read. 

the-steep-and-thorny-way-cat-wintersThe Steep and Thorny Way by Cat Winters. I read The Cure for Dreaming last year, and it quickly became one of my favorite books of all time, so I’m really happy that I’m finally able to pick up some more of her books this year.

9. A series you want to read from start to finish.

10. A series you’ve already started that you’d like to finish. 

picture9The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. I only own The Raven Boys, so I haven’t been able to pick up the rest of the series since I read the first book. I’m hoping I’ll be able to pick up the rest of this series some time this year.

11. How many books do you want to read in 2017? 

My Goodreads goal is currently set for 104 books, so that’s what I’m aiming for.

12. Do you have any other reading goals?

As I said in my last discussion post, one of my main priorities for my reading this year is to read more diversely. I’m quite happy to say that so far I think I’m meeting my goal for this. My other two goals are to read more 2017 releases, and to not rush through books as much, but really savor them and enjoy them.

Since I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this, I’m not going to tag anyone. However, if you want to do it, I’d love to see other people’s responses, so go for it!
