Hello beautiful people!
A Who Am I tag but book style? This should be rather interesting (and after fully finishing this, I can confidently say that this was a SUPER difficult tag) … let’s give it a shot!
But firstly, thank you so much Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books for tagging me in this! I’ve been following Nikki’s blog for quite sometime, I think since around the time I began blogging! I was gravitated towards her writing style, blog post choices and the title of her blog (seriously, too cute). But she’s also just an absolutely incredible person! She’s always so polite and kind, trying to really connect with the people in the blogging community (I really want to do a Buddy Read with her in 2020 ha-ha). So thank you so much Nikki for being such a lovely person! (OH! MAKE SURE TO CHECK HER BLOG OUT)
This tag was originally created by PBS Digital Studios for The Great American Read competition.
One. If your life were a book genre, what would it be?
Pft … a comedy ha-ha! Seriously though, I think it would be a Realistic Coming of Age story. As many of you might know if you’ve hit your 20’s, you grow A LOT as a person. I never really knew who I was in my high school year. But my 20’s have been a time to explore my interests, my passions, my traits and what I want in life. It’s been a roller-coaster ride, but it’s honestly been the best ALMOST 10 years of my life.
Two. What villain from a book do you identify with the most?
Ummm … this got dark ha-ha! I’m not gonna lie, I can’t think of any. There’s never really been a book where I feel like I somewhat associate with the “villain”. I have to agree with Nikki though, I do that annoying *hem hem* thing a lot like Professor Umbridge … chronic sinus issues ha-ha!
Three. What protagonist are you most similar to?
Oh yes! An easier one ha-ha! Definitely Ponyboy Curtis from S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders.
I’ve resonated with this character for longer than I can remember. His love of movies and books and poetry, his empathy for others, that feeling of not feeling like he fits in with everyone (but that’s not a bad thing), and the joy he gets from nature and sunsets are just all things I totally feel. He’s an amazing character, one I’m glad I feel similar to.
Four. Which book did you connect with in the past that you no longer do?
Ummm … I don’t know ha-ha! I honestly don’t feel like there are books I connected with in the past that I don’t connect with today. Lame answer … I know …
Five. What recent book would you love to be a character in?
Ummm … obviously The Ten Thousand Doors of January! Traveling to other worlds? Discovering new places? Living life as a grand explorer?! SIGN ME UP!
This was one of those books I was SO nervous to read, since I was scared the hype wouldn’t match the content. Lucky for me, I ended up falling in love with this novel! The characters, the story … THAT WRITING! I really hope I get the chance to read more works by Harrow in the future (it looks like some are releasing in 2020 and 2021, so my dreams may come true)!
Six. How do your reading habits show off in your personality?
Hmmm … well, I’m a MOOD reader, so I guess that shows I can be moody? I don’t think I’m super moody, though I am rather expressive ha-ha! Oh! There are also times where I need a HUGE break from books due to feeling overwhelmed, which I get like that in real life as well … needing a break from people and society ha-ha! Being an idealistic and happy-go-lucky person, I tend to find joy in books with an emotional connection but also with a happy ending … since I love having connections like that in real life. So I guess my reading habits show that I am moody, get overwhelmed at times, and like to live in an idealistic and happy little world ha-ha!
Seven. What book taught you something about yourself?
There are a lot of books that have taught me things about myself! But there are some in particular that really touched my heart:
↠ The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton taught me that I’m a daydreamer and a lover of the beauty in life, and that’s more than okay.
↠ Wonder by R.J. Palacio taught me that getting frustrated with my brother, even though he has special needs, doesn’t make me a bad sister or person … it makes me human.
↠ To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han taught me that it’s okay to be scared of love and vulnerability, but not to let it hold me back from love and friendship and opportunities in life. It also taught me that it’s okay to be quirky and different from the norm — if anything, it makes a unique person!
↠ Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson taught me that it’s okay to show emotions and open up to people when the world feels scary and hopeless.
↠ Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne taught me it’s okay to have that inner child wonder still!
Tag! You’re it!
Again … I would normally tag some people, but Christmas is over so I don’t want to tag people ha-ha! But feel free to give this a try!
