Okay … maybe I was a little over-dramatic about the internet the other day. It’s working just fine now (after a technician came and fixed it. It didn’t just miraculously work again.) and that means that there wasn’t much to be missed out on. To celebrate the return of functioning WiFi, I present to you the Celebrity Book Tag. After a little chat, lovely Josie @Josie’s Book Corner was so nice as to tag me in the comments. You should check out her post (and her blog in general), because she gives the most creative answers and has the best ideas for discussion topics.
1. Emma Watson — A book with a hot, kick-butt female character
I have to give it to the book industry, because there are actually tons of characters to choose from for this category. Which is a really good sign I think! I guess I am going with Harper Price, heroine of Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins. She’s a true Southern belle, but one day she receives powers and gets super strong. She is definitely bad-ass!
2. Ryan Gosling— A book with the hottest male character
I know that this was Josie’s answer as well, but EVERYONE in A Court of Thorns and Roses is absolutely gorgeous and handsome and generally swoon-worthy! My favourites are definitely Lucien and Rhysand, but you know, I can’t deny that Tamlin is pretty hot as well.
3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt — A book with your favorite fictional book couple
I am MALEC fan ALL THE WAY! Magnus Bane by himself is one of my favourite characters of all the books I’ve ever read, but when he’s with Alec – oh my, I just ship them so hard! I think I smile through (almost) every single scene with them together.
4. Shailene Woodley — Author you’ve recently discovered and loved
So many to choose from! I think I have to go with more than one: Andy Weir, Sarah J. Maas, Jasmine Warga, Victoria Aveyard, …
5. Josh Hutcherson- Favorite short story or novella
I am not huge on novellas and I haven’t read all that many short stories in my life. However, the Unite Me companion novellas for the Shatter Me series were vital to get a better understanding of Warner and Adam, even though they didn’t actually add that much to the story. Still, I can’t help but think that novellas are a little weird.
6. Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock — Favorite Big Book (over 500 pages)
As I feel my answers becoming very repetitive in these tags, I’m trying to say something, really anything, that I haven’t mentioned a 100 times before. I’ve actually thought of a book now and that’s Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. It’s about bullying and a school shooting, so I think that the topics are still very current, even though I’ve read this years ago. It was a very emotional read!
7. Leonardio DiCaprio — A series with the most upsetting death (NO SPOILERS)
I’ve mentioned it before, but in for the sake of not spoiling anything, I am just mentioning the title of the series: The Dark Reflections by Kai Meyer.
8. Kristen Stewart — A book you found boring
I really liked the movie, but somehow I just can’t seem to get through the book. Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin sounds so lovely and so many people love it, but I can’t get through one page without my eyes wanting to close … Unfortunately! I really wish it were different!
9. Ian Somerhalder and his cat — Cutest book on your shelf
The one book that just always makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. It’s so adorable and cutesy, I had to pick it for this category!
10. Jennifer Lawrence — Perfect book or series
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern! Perfect may be an overstatement, because if it were truly perfect, there would be more of it. I fell in love with this book and I can’t help but want some sort of sequel or for the movie to finally be made. It’s been optioned for what feels like centuries and they are probably afraid of screwing it up (and rightly so), but I need more circus-time. Any way I can get it!
And at last, I tag thee:
