More tags. Because why not.

This first one was made by Sweetbriar42

1- What is your favorite book?
I don't have one favorite, but I can list some authors I like: Brian Jacques, Anne McCaffery, Patricia C. Wrede

2- Out of these books, which are your favorite? (Harry Potter, Twilight saga, Lord of the Rings, or Hunger Games)
Harry Potter

3- Do you prefer reading a series, or a novel?
It depends on the story, honestly. If a single book completes it perfectly, why add more? Not to say I don't want to read more with the setting/characters, but sometimes sequels ruin things. But when I think of all of my favorite authors/books, most of them belong to a series. A series requires more commitment (especially if you have to read every single book in it, rather than it being an open series like Redwall), but there's more time to feel a real connection to the characters. In other words, I don't really know and both have their pros and cons.

4- Would you rather read fiction, or nonfiction?
Fiction

5- Have you ever read a book that made you want to read it, 20x over?
Yes! I used to have the first paragraph of Ella Enchanted memorized, I read it so many times.

6- Have you ever read a book where the book was better than the movie, or the other way around?
The book is pretty much always better than the movie--except for How to Train Your Dragon.

7- If you have ever read Rick Riordan, which of his books do you think are better, Percy Jackson, or the Kane Chronicles?
I haven't read the Kane Chronicles, so by default I have to say Percy.

8- If you could meet any popular book character, who would it be?
Hmm... Halt from the Ranger's Apprentice series, maybe. Except he's one of those mysterious mentor characters and I don't think I would actually be comfortable around him or that we would have anything to say. Maybe Remus Lupin inside, as I feel like we're similar in some ways.

9- Do you spend a lot of time in the library?
No. My TBR pile for books I own is way too big, so I try to check books out from the library only if they're part of a series I've already started (such as The Selection series I recently finished).

10- Would you rather, watch the whole Twilight saga in 1 go, or read every Harry Potter book, at your own pace, in the seven-year order?
Read Harry Potter. The twilight movies weren't that great. I prefer the books. But if the choice was between which series to read, it would be Harry Potter.

11- Do you like to read a lot?
Yes

12- Who copied who, Harry Potter, or Twilight? Why?
...Harry Potter started first, so I fail to see how it would be a copy of twilight. Also, the two series are nothing alike, so neither copied the other.

13- Twilight, or Hunger Games?
Not sure, honestly. Probably The Hunger Games.

14- Maximum Ride, or Percy Jackson?
Maximum Ride for the first three books, but then the series went downhill fast and became a trainwreck James Patterson just can't let go of.

15- Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings?
I've never actually read The Lord of the Rings (but I did read The Hobbit), so... HP.

16- Have you ever read a really good fiction on animals?
As in, a story with animal characters? That would be the Redwall series, which is one of my favorites.

17- Ever read/watched/heard of chronicles of Narnia?
Read the first book, and I've watched all of the movies. I plan on reading them all at one point.

18- Have you ever had a conversation with a librarian at a public library?
Not a long one. See previous question about going to the library.

19- Do you like/dislike your school librarian? Why?
Going back six+ years to HS... She was kind of scary and strict, but we had a good relationship. I never needed to give her a library pass for her to allow me there, and I was her aide for awhile.

20- Does reading make you want to read more?
Of course!



Stolen from UnluckyAmulet

1. Name three of your favourite books and tell us a bit about them.

(In no particular order, and with just what came to mind).

1)
 Dealing with Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede

I've loved this book (and the entire series) for as long as I can remember. I love how this book plays with and subverts fantasy and fairy tale tropes, and I love the humor, and I love everything about the main character Cimorene. If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for?!

2) The Great Good Thing - Roderick Townsley

Apparently this is a series? I never knew that until just now, when looking up the name of the author. I read this book several times as a child, and I loved how interesting the world was, as it's something I'd never seen done before. The main character is a character inside of a book, and the opening scene mentions her leaning on a word or something like that. I just found it really fascinating, and now I'm going to have to check out the rest of the series.

3) Dragonsong - Anne McCaffery

This is another one of those books I've read over and over again. It's my favorite book (that I've read) in the Dragonriders of Pern series. Menolly is such an interesting and compelling character, and I love her journey throughout this book. It takes what most see as a small aspect of such a large series and really expands on it.
 

2. Name three of your least favourite books.

I'm counting only books I've read, and not books I hate for other reasons (such as 50 Shades).

1) The Final Warning - James Patterson

The first three books were building towards this great thing and the main character Max was told over and over again that she had to save the world. The fourth book comes along, and she's saving the world from... global warming. Seriously? The book was very slowly paced, was a huge letdown, and felt like it was preaching at me.

2) Allegiant - Veronica Roth

This series has several flaws, but what made me hate it was the ending of this book. I don't want to spoil anyone, but it's not worth reading; it was a complete waste of my time.

3) The Beginning - Katherine Applegate

The Animorphs series is the biggest waste of time out there. This last book in the series makes everything the characters have gone through meaningless. While I might have been more emotionally invested in the Maximum Ride series, this ending ticks me off more than any other, because the fate of Earth is the same regardless of if these fifty-four books happened or not. At least with Maximum Ride and the Divergent series, it wasn't completely meaningless (well, the Maximum Ride one was pretty meaningless, but it still left you with just a little bit more than Animorphs does).

3. Name some books you've loved since childhood.

Ella Enchanted - Gail Carson Levine
Dealing with Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede
The Great Good Thing - Roderick Townley
The Nancy Drew series - Carolyn Keene
The Pony Pals series - Jeanne Betancourt

 4. Name a book the disappointed you.

Nevermore - James Patterson

Really? After eight books, that's the way you chose to end the series?! (I do know there is another book now, but this book was supposed to be the last.) I hate that Max is told to save the world over and over and over again, only for her "saving" of the world to be the dumbest plot twist I have ever read. I was left feeling disappointed and angry and I've hated James Patterson ever since. He may have been a great writer once upon a time, but he's become nothing more than a guy who uses twists as a mean to cover up that he has no idea what he's doing.


5. Name a book that surprised you.

The Final Warning - James Patterson

I can only think of negative examples. This book surprised me because I had no idea the bad guy in the series was going to become global warning.


6. Name a favorite graphic novel/ comic/ manga.

Strays


7. Name a favorite non-fiction book.

I don't know if I've read enough to come up with a favorite, but I did really like The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History. It was a fascinating read, and I plan on purchasing it at some point.


8. Name a favorite poetry book.

 Anything Shel Silverstein

 9. Name a book you'd like to see made into a movie.

I don't know! My first thought is Dealing with Dragons, but that's an easy book to ruin, because so much of the humor is in the writing, but yet it's not a comedic book. Maybe... Dragonsong. I feel like that would make a rather good movie.

 
10. What are you reading now?
