Tag, you’re it!

Hello! Today I want to talk about tag posts and my struggle over tagging people.

Basically, whenever I do a tag post, I always have difficulty over choosing who to tag. Half the time I don’t even tag anyone. I’ll just say, “If you want to do this tag, then consider yourself tagged!” But I really do want to tag people. I’m a newish blogger, so I don’t know that many bloggers, much less know who likes to do tags. Typically I’ll just randomly go through my following list and pick people from there.

So here’s where you come in. Let me know in the comments if you would like to be tagged in future tag posts and if you have any preferences for certain type of tags (ex. Disney related tags, TV related tags, etc.). That way I have an easy place to find people to tag. If you don’t want to be tagged, let me know too because the last thing I want is to be that annoying person who continually tags people who don’t want to be tagged. Also, let me know how you decide who to tag. I’m curious!

Thanks for reading!

Currently Reading Book Tag

I was tagged by Audra over at Audra’s Book Blabbing to do the Currently Reading book tag. Thank you so much for the tag! To check out her post, click here.

1. How many books do you usually read at once?

I usually only read one book at a time. I really hate reading multiple books at a time, but I will do it on occasion, especially if I have to read a book for school.

2. If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?

When my mood changes and I want something different to read or if I feel like I haven’t picked up the second book in a while. Usually it’s the latter.

3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?

Honestly no. I have never even thought of doing that actually. I’ve been using the same book mark for like 6 years now. Lol.

4. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

On my night stand for easy access.

5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

I try to read for an hour before bed, so usually at night. However, I do read quite a bit during the day when I’m not busy. So pretty much any time of day.

6. How long do you typically read in one sitting?

30 minutes but I’m really not too sure. I take a lot of breaks when I read. Or I’ll read a few pages here and there. It’s tough to gauge.

7. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?

Typically on, but if it is getting damaged then I will take it off.

8. What position do you mainly use to read?

All of them! Lol. I’ll read lying down, sitting, lounging on my chair, etc.

9. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

Not everywhere. When I was in school I would bring it with me, but other than that my books usually stay at home.

10. How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?

I used to update it obsessively, but now I only do it once every few days.

I tag…

Like with my previous tag post, I’m not going to directly tag anyone. If you want to do this super fast and fun tag, go for it!

Thanks for reading!

Mulan Book Tag

I was tagged by Rebecca at Bookishly Rebecca to do the Mulan book tag. You can check out her post here. Thank you so much to Rebecca for tagging me! I am so excited to do this tag because Mulan is my favorite Disney Princess.

Rules:

  • Mention the creator (Kirsty and the Cat Read)
  • Thank/mention the person who tagged you
  • Match books or characters to the questions below
  • tag as many people as you like🙂

REFLECTION: “WHEN WILL MY REFLECTION SHOW WHO I AM INSIDE?” -AN INACCURATE BOOK COVER THAT DOESN’T REFLECT WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT

31848274

Living the Dream by Lauren Berry

Based on the cover, you would think that characters would be drinking a lot of coffee in this book. Nope. They never drank coffee. Instead they were always drinking some sort of alcoholic beverage. I’m still confused as to why they decided to stick a coffee cup on the cover.

MUSHU: A CHARACTER WITH A LOT TO PROVE

$_57__78189.1510015120

Magnus Chase from the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan

Magnus is the son of a Norse god who ends up in Hotel Valhalla. He is expected to fight in Ragnarok when it finally happens. While he’s waiting, he has to save the world multiple times, so I guess you could say he has a lot to prove.

“I’LL MAKE A MAN OUT OF YOU”: A CHARACTER WHO DEVELOPS THE MOST OR A BOOK WITH SOME KICK-ASS TRAINING SCENES

17927395

No book really jumps out to me, but I guess ACOMAF by Sarah J. Maas. Feyre learns a lot in that book.

“A GIRL WORTH FIGHTING FOR”: A SHIP YOU WILL DEFEND TILL YOUR LAST BREATH

51-G1oBxtsL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

Lara Jean and John Ambrose McClaren from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han

I actually really love these two together. Sorry Peter, but John is way better. I hold on to hope that later on in the future, Lara Jean will break up with Peter and realize she belongs with John.

HUNS: A BOOK/CHARACTER THAT GIVES YOU THE CREEPS

41s2G6WxLvL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

That book is probably one of the creepiest books of all time because of the subject matter, but I loved it regardless.

MULAN: YOUR FAVORITE BAD-ASS FEMALE PROTAGONIST

30206050

Squirrel Girl from The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale

Squirrel Girl is hands down my favorite. She’s a total boss. I could go on and on about her. Seriously, go read her comics and the YA book.

I tag…

So this is the first of many tag posts I have coming so I’m not going to tag anyone directly. If you want to do this tag then go for it (and be sure to tag me so I can check it out)!

Once again thank you for reading!

Disney Song Book Tag

I saw Ashley over at Thrifty Bibliophile do this tag, and since it is Disney, I just had to do it too! You can check out her post here.

A whole new world – Pick a book that made you see the world differently.

91X4yHYk6bL

Incarceration Nations by Baz Dreisinger. I read this for a social justice class and it was mind blowing. It tackles the issue of mass incarceration all over the world and really humanizes the issue. Dreisinger also gave a talk to our class and she is so passionate about this issue. It’s inspiring.

Cruella De Vil – Pick your favorite villain.

Jack Merridew from Lord of the Flies. I read this in high school and I LOVED Jack for some reason.

I won’t say I’m in love – Pick a book you didn’t want to admit you loved.

23734628

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. Not only did I love it, I liked it way more than Fangirl. Sorry not sorry.

Gaston – Pick a character that you couldn’t stand

Katniss in Mockingjay. I read this back in high school so it was quite a while ago. I can’t remember much specifics, but I do recall being annoyed with Katniss so much in this book.

Part of your world – Pick a book set in a universe you wish you could live in.

The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. I would love to go to the Wood between Worlds because then I could go to all the worlds!

A dream is a wish your heart makes – describe what the book of your dreams would be like

How can I even answer this question? I don’t even know because it changes every day depending on my mood.

Someday my prince will come – What book character would you marry if you could?

John Ambrose McClaren from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. He just seems like husband material. And I love his name. I would love to become Mrs. John Ambrose McClaren.

I see the light – Pick a book that changed your life

18134894

Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters. This book is my everything. So dark, so twisted, it touched me in an intimate way.

When you wish upon a star – Pick a book you wish you could reread for the first time.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I had so many feels when I read it.

I just can’t wait to be king – Pick a book with some kind of monarchy in it

12814540

The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze. This book takes place in post-apocalyptic England where a dictator is trying to overthrow the British throne.

Colors of the wind – Pick a book with a beautiful colorful cover.

27416146

Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz. All the books in this series have a gorgeous cover but this one is the most beautiful, especially in person. The mirror part of the cover is reflective so it captures the light and creates a rainbow of color. So pretty!

I tag…

Anyone who loves Disney!


 

Thanks for reading! I hope you have a magical day!

Spring Cleaning Book Tag

I was tagged by Crystal at Paper Royalty to do the spring cleaning book tag. Thank you so much for tagging me! I love doing tags. You can check out her post here.

The struggle of getting started: a book or series you struggle to begin because of its size

Lunar Chronicles Collage - Final

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I really want to read this series but there are quite a few books and the last one is massive.

Cleaning out the closet: a book or series you want to unhaul

I actually unhauled books for the first time a few days ago. If you want to hear more about it click here.

Opening windows and letting fresh air in: a book that was refreshing

32187419

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney. It totally could have became a cliche since the premise is a young woman having an affair with a married man, but luckily it didn’t. It felt real.

Washing out the sheet stains: a book with a scene you wish you could rewrite

I would rewrite Laurie and Amy getting together in Little Women. I don’t like them together. Amy should have ended up with anyone but Laurie. Wait scratch that, I’d rewrite Anna and the French Kiss to eliminate the unnecessary love triangle between Etienne, Ellie, and Anna. Etienne and Ellie should have split early on in the book.

Throwing out unnecessary knickknacks: a book in a series you didn’t think was necessary

I don’t read that many series to begin with, so that’s hard to answer. I really can’t say. But in general, I find that novellas in series are unnecessary.

Polishing doorknobs: a book that had a clean finish

38889730

Spotlight by Jacqueline E. Smith. Like I mentioned in my review of it, it wrapped up the storylines perfectly. I was a happy camper after reading it.

Reaching to dust the fan: a book that tried too hard to relay a certain message

39006052

the witch doesn’t burn in this one by Amanda Lovelace. I liked this book but it didn’t have the ease of the first one, so it ended up being repetitive and didn’t live up to its full potential. Some of the poems did feel a little forced.

The tiring yet satisfying finish of spring cleaning: a book series that was tiring but satisfying to get through

The_ACOTAR_series

The ACOTAR series. ACOMAF and ACOWAR were long and took me about a month to read each one. But they were oh so good!

I tag…

 

Thanks for reading!

Jessica
