New York Times By the Book Tag!

Hi everyone!

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but I have seen many other bloggers like Shannon @Captivated~by~Fantasy and Amy @inkyspells participate in it, so I decided to give it a go!

1. What book is on your nightstand right now?

Do books I’ve completed count? If so, I’ve just finished Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson! It was so good, so you should definitely check it out!

2. What is the last truly great book you’ve read?

Sorry guys, but I’m going to have to go with Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour again! Let’s face it, it was amazing!

3. If you could meet any writer, dead or alive, who would it be? And what would you want to know?

I’m honestly not the best with these questions, but if I had to choose, probably Morgan Matson and/or Jenny Han! They are both YA contemporary writers who write amazing books! I think I’d want to know what got them into writing, and ask them for advice on how to become a better writer myself. I’m also aching to know how Morgan Matson comes up with the ideas for her books, because they are just so creative! Also, Matson and Han are good friends, so I think it would work perfectly if I met them both together! *Pictures come from their Goodreads profiles*

4. What books might we be surprised to find on your shelf?

I think people might be surprised to find graphic novels on my shelf, like Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney, The Babysitters Club by Ann M. Martin, and some of Raina Telegemier’s books! Sometimes I just need a break from deep, serious novels, and just want something light and quick to read! They are also great to read when you’re waiting for another novel, so you’re still reading! (Sorry, I don’t have a picture for this one right now, as my books are organized in rainbow order, so all the graphic novels are separated based on colour. I may update if I re-organize my books, though!)

5. How do you organize your personal library?

I literally just answered this question above, but recently I arranged my books in rainbow order! I just think it makes shelves look way more organized and pretty!

6. What book have you always meant to read but haven’t gotten around to yet?

If you read my TBR Tag  and my list of popular books I’ve never read, then you know that I’ve never read Divergent by Veronica Roth! I really hope to this summer, though, because it’s sort of embarrassing that I haven’t, and I want to see what all this hype’s about!

7. Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you were supposed to like but didn’t?

I didn’t dislike this book per se, but I just didn’t love it. I know it’s a classic and all, and most classics are known for being amazing, but I just didn’t feel the love! Check out my review for it here!

8. What stories are you drawn to? Any you steer clear of?

I mostly read YA contemporary since I can relate to the characters and the stories easier, but I’ve recently been opening up to reading more dystopian and fantasy books! I remember having no interest in books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins when I was younger, but I finished reading it a couple days ago and it was amazing! So nowadays, I mostly just stay away from the adult books, as I am a bit too young for those and a way more diverse reader now!

9. If you could require the Prime Minister to read one book, what would it be?

Um… even though I didn’t like this book very much, I’d probably say The Rule of Three by Eric Walters (review here). This book is about a viral catastrophe that makes all the technology stop working, and it’s all about teamwork and taking control. I think that in case something like this were to happen (I’m not saying it will, I’m saying in the ~0.000001 chance it will, not trying to jinx anything😝), the prime minister should read this book so he could know how the characters dealt with the situation so he could use that information to help us.

10. What do you plan to read next?

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley, and I need to get started! I will after I finish writing this blog post😉(well, now that you’re reading this a day later, I’ve probably started it already and am at least 100 pages through😜)!

I nominate anyone who wants to participate, so go ahead and try it!💖

Have you read any of these books? If so, do you agree with my opinions? Tell me in the comments below!

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, I really want to read it! Everyone seems to love Morgan Matson’s books, so I really should get around to reading them.

    I’m so glad that you did this tag! I loved reading your answers 🙂
