Epic Reads Book Tag

I saw someone post this tag and I thought it would be something fun to complete. So here we go!

1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters for tea who would you invite and what would you serve?

I would invite Charlotte Brontë and her character Jane Eyre. I would serve Earl Grey  tea, sandwiches (including cucumber sandwiches), and macarons. I might sneak some Indian food in there as well; I think they would enjoy the spices. 

2. What would you love a prequel for and what would be the main storyline?25442488

I would want a prequel to Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I would want it to be all about the Dragon, his past, and maybe even a little sneak peak into his thoughts on Agnieszka while she is living with him.





3. Which two characters not from the same book would make a great book couple?

Hermione from the Harry Potter series and Clark from Morgan Matson’s The Unexpected Everything.

4. If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and could only say one sentence to them, what would you say?

I don’t even think I could get one sentence out. Hmm…I might say, “my life, my world, my thoughts, my opinions, all changed due to your words.”

5. What book made you a reader and why?

My mom, who was an avid reader herself, gifted me two books when I was in my tweens: Jane Eyre and Little Women. After reading those books, I became obsessed with reading, because I love escapism, and more importantly I loved the depiction of female empowerment that was ingrained in the female characters of both books.

6. If your bookshelf caught on fire which book would you save?

I would probably save one of my books from my The Winner’s Curse trilogy. Who am I kidding?! I would save this entire collection.the winner's trilogy haul

7. Which dystopian world would you want to live in?

Ummm…none. Are you crazy?!





8. What is your most epic read of all time?

Although, I love Jane Eyre, my most epic read is currently tied between The Night Circus and Uprooted. I am a sucker for stories that encompass magic, enchantment, strong/witty female characters, compassion, and a passionate couple.

Book Tag: THIS or THAT



The Rules

1. Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).

2. Thank the blogger who tagged you!

3. Choose one of the options. You don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that, but you can also do them if you want to.

4. Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!


One: reading on the couch or on the bed?
Both. I read during the day on a couch and at night on the bed.  

Two: male main character or female main character?
Definitely, a female main character. I find female characters to be more dynamic and fully fledged out when authors fully explore the potential of their female characters. 

Three: sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
I usually do not eat while reading, but I don’t mind munching on some salty snacks like pretzels. 

Four: trilogies or quartets?
I prefer duologies, but I don’t mind trilogies.

Five: first person point of view or third person point of view?
Third person point of view. I have a hard time connecting with characters in first person point view and usually feel like I’m forcing myself to stick with the story. 

Six: reading at night or in the morning?
I usually read in the evening or at night. It helps me wind down and get my thoughts off the day’s events. 

Seven: libraries or bookstores?
Definitely bookstores, because I NEED to own ALL the books. I live in a small town and our library is very limited and not very big. I don’t mind making that 30+ minute drive to a bookstore. 

Eight: books that make you laugh or make you cry?
Books that make me laugh. 

Nine: black book covers or white book covers?
As I glance at my books, I’m going to have to go with black book covers. 

Ten: character driven or plot driven stories?
Plot driven. I need a story, I need a background, I need reasons, and I need change in order for a story to capture my attention.
