Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing the Christine Riccio Book Tag!
I feel like I should start with the fact that I have never felt more like a stalker then I do right now. So I went on instagram this morning and found an account called @bookplosionandco who made this tag and I was like this sounds fun why don’t I do it. But then I started looking for a picture of Christine to make that banner and I felt like a stalker just trying to find a picture of her and man I don’t know it felt so weird. If you didn’t know Christine Riccio is a booktuber also known as Polandbananasbooks and I love her videos, she’s one of my many inspirations. She’s super funny and I love her. See that sounds weird well I’m writing this. Hopefully it doesn’t read as weird as it sounds right now. I really hope that this doesn’t lead to another person reading the wrong thing and blocking me on twitter. Okay I’m just gonna stop and get started on this and hope that I stop feeling weird.
The First Book You ever Talked about on Your Social Media
(what was your username then)
I feel like I should mention that this was created for instagram but I like tags and I’m not that great of friends with my instagram so I wanted to do it on this blog. The first book I’ve talked about on this blog was Girl Online by Zoe Sugg which it’s an okay book but I’ve talked about that book so much that I’m not going to talk about as much anymore because I don’t like it! I do have a fan account and I’ll just use that for this question. I can’t be sure about this but I think the post I ever made on the geekygalaxy instagram was a fanart of Percy, Katniss, and Harry.
I think this because I remembering loving that fanart and I made it my icon so I’m thinking maybe that I made it my first post. And my username was feels fromthefandom.
STORIES I ATE THIS MONTH
Your Favorite book You’ve read this month So Far
I haven’t read that many books right now in the month of September but I read a lot in August and I made a whole post talking about all the books I read in August which you can read here *Look at that self promo. I’m going to pick a book from August because I can and my favorite book that I read during that month had to be Warcross by Marie Lu!
I have a whole review for this and it might be out by now. I have no clue when this is going to be posted so it may have or haven’t been posted. I really enjoyed this book. It was so much fun and had all these twists and turns and that ending! I really need to know what happens next okay! Like I need book two! *and now a message from Future Grace after reading like five books in September Hey guys it’s me two days before this is supposed to be posted and I have a favorite book that I’ve read in September which is Big Little Lies and it was AMAZING!!! I’m going to watch the show soon hopefully.
If you write, what book really made you want to write stories youself
I love her writing videos they are just so great and so much fun. If you haven’t watched one of her writing videos then I recommend watching them because they are so great. If you haven’t watched Christine’s videos in general then you should because they are so much fun. I didn’t watch her writing videos at first but then I watched one and I was like I have to watch all of them. I wrote to these videos for awhile but then I finished watching them. I sound like a stalker again goddamn it! I have two books for this which are Harry Potter by JK Rowling and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
I mean a lot of stories give me ideas but I had some of my strongest ideas after reading these two books which are both amazing and everyone should read these books. If you haven’t already read Harry Potter. It drives me crazy when people are just like I hate Harry Potter and they haven’t even read the books. Like how can you hate it when you haven’t read it????? A lot of people don’t like Mortal Instruments but the main thing you have to know about the Mortal Instruments is that you have to push through City of Bones to get to the good stuff.
HOW TO AVOID SPOILERS
A book that was spoiled for you
I get spoiled all the times, it’s just something that happens to me. I hate that. I do get over it when I get spoiled but one I haven’t gotten over is the thing that happens in Dance with Dragons.
Can you guess on what I got spoiled on for this book? It’s really easy. I was doing so good with avoiding spoilers for Game of Thrones like I had gotten through book one and no one had said anything but I started Clash of Kings and this was right after the season five finale had aired. I went to school with Clash of Kings and I was still doing a good job when my friend comes up to me is like ‘Can you believe that thing happened?’ but she didn’t say that she told me what happened and I was so upset! I haven’t gotten over it.
A book that caused you longest mourning period
No shocker here. I’m going with A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Anderson!
This book fucked me so bad and it was good and I cried so hard and I love every second of it. This book was so long and I loved it and it was the perfect ending well sort of. I wished that our group of best friends reunited. If you haven’t read Wheel of Time I would recommend it because it’s so good and there is news about a TV show so get reading. Just a little warning the books are giant and there are 13 books in this series.
THE READING SLUMP CASE STUDY
A book that got you out of a reading slump
I recently got in a book slump and it was terrible I hated it. But luckily I found a book that Christine mentioned in one of her videos and I was like I’ll give it a try and it got me out of my book slump. Let me tell, getting out of book slump the feeling you get is amazing. It’s like a mix of pride and joy! Okay the book that got me out of my book slump was To Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky!
I didn’t think I would like this book. I would always see it at the bookstore and be like no I’m not going to get that but then I read this book and holy crap! It was so GOOD! It’s weirdly amazing and I enjoyed this so much. I would highly recommend this book because it’s so good! It just gets crazier and crazier with each page and it’s such a good book!
A book you could talk about FOREVER
Um.. it should be pretty obvious.
I love them all so much. They are just so amazing and wonderful and I love them and they WILL LIVE ON FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER!
Did you read any of the books and did you read them along with the Booksplosion?
OKAY so here’s the thing I have read the book for Booksplosion but I always read them after the book is no longer the book of the month. It’s not like I mean to do it but I never have the book until like a year or a couple months have pasted. I do have the book they did for August which was Little Monsters by Kara Thomas.
If you read my Books I read in August post then you know that I read this only because it was a booksplosion book and you would also know that I hated it. I had so many issues with like underage drinking, the ending was unclear for me, and the friendships were just terrible. LIKE OH MY GOD these characters are just awful. I’m not going to spoil the book for you if you want to read but I really want to because it’s makes me so mad. They all loved unlike me. I think that they are doing Alexandra Brackens new book which I do own so I will be reading that in September. Even if it’s not their book of the month I’m still going to read it because I want too. *update they are doing it for their book of the month
Which book do people associate with you/think of when they think of you?
I suck at eyeliner let’s just talk about that. I would be better if I wore make up more but I’m too lazy to put make up on and I don’t like how make up feels on my face. When I first got eyeliner, I had such a hard time putting on my top eye lid that I stopped doing it and I only did it under my eyes like some me kid for the early 2000s. My mother was like you can’t just wear like that you look like a goth! I mean I can do it now but i still don’t wear a lot of make up. Any way a book that I think people associate me with is Eye of the World by Robert Jordan.
I need to pick a different book but honestly whenever people I’ve met or known hear something about Wheel of Time, they always call me up or talk to me and tell about it and always recommend books that have been recommend if you love Wheel of Time. I’ve convinced people to start reading this series because I talk about it so much.
Which fictional character would you name your pet after?
If we want to get real, one of my dogs is already named after a character. We didn’t mean to do because out of the characters we love we probably won’t have picked her. I mean if you are one of those people who give their dogs their last names then my dog’s name matches this characters name. But that’s not talk about that. If I got another dog, my dad and I have said that we would name our next dogs if we got another one either Ripley or Groot which I do love. I also what to named something Sebastian I don’t know why. I mean I call my computer Sebastian so that should be enough……. OKAY next questions!
Paul and Olivia
Your favorite fictional siblings
I really want to say the Weasley Siblings from Harry Potter but I’ve picked Harry Potter too many times. It was hard coming up with an answer that wasn’t Harry Potter because a lot of main characters don’t have siblings because most of the time they are an only child or their siblings are dead. I think I’m gonna go with the Blackthorn family from the Dark Artifices!
Raise your hand if your still emotional hurt by Lord of Shadows! *raises hand so high that you can’t even see it! like it’s in space! I like all these kids, they are all great and fun to read about and I’m super worried for Queen of Air and Darkness.
