I was tagged by Joey @ThoughtsAndAfterthoughts to do this tag
(ages ago, by which I mean a year ago, and I’m sooo sorry that it’s taken me this long to do it!!). Thank you once more! Be sure to check out his blog as well!
I’m not the biggest fan of Friends, I do enjoy watching it from time to time – when it’s on the tv. This is, however, one of my mom’s favourite tv shows and she was watching it today actually
(there were some episodes on tv today for some reason). That’s what reminded me that I needed to do this tag! Anyway, let’s get into the questions!
The One Where Eddie Won’t Go – a character I wish would just go away:
The first character that came to my mind was Dolores Umbridge. UGH! I seriously HATE that women. She is my most hated character of all time – from Harry Potter but in general as well. I’m sure this is the case for many people, it would really be best if she was simply gone.
She represents everything I hate in a person. I don’t think I have to explain why I hate her, or give any examples. EVERYONE hates her, I don’t think there is a single person out there that likes her as a character.
(I do enjoy hating her, however. Just thought I would mention that as well.)
The One Where Ross and Rachel Take A Break – favorite break up scene:
Is there even something like a favourite break up scene? I seriously don’t know…Or at least I can’t think of any. I don’t even remember that many breaking up scenes if I’m being honest.
(The only one that’s coming to mind right now is the one in New Moon.)
The One With All The Kissing – a book with lots of kissing:
Once again I have no idea which book to pick. I don’t usually read books that focus on romance, it’s not a genre that I particularly enjoy. The books I usually read are fantasy and I honestly don’t pay attention to how much kissing is happening in one book. Sooo I honestly had no idea which book to pick for this one.
But then I remembered that I read City of Ashes recently and that there were kissing scenes in that one!
(As well as City of Bones.) And I remember them vividly because they annoyed me a lot. If you have read my review for the books you know why. And I wouldn’t say that the series has a lot of kissing, but it’s basically the only one I could think of, so I’m going with it!
The Last One – favorite series finale:
I really like the way that the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan ended. I think it’s my all time favourite, or at least it’s the first one I could think of. His other series, The Heroes of Olympus, didn’t end as well as this one. Or at least I wasn’t fully satisfied. Though I have to say, I’m not that easy to please when it comes to the last book in a series/trilogy
(most of the time that is).
The One With a Blackout – a scene I’d like to forget:
In The Bridge on the Drina (which is a classic and one of the most important required readings in the country I come from) there is a brutal scene of impaling described…in a very detailed way. Actually a lot of violence in this book is very graphic and VERY detailed. And I still remember those scenes, to be honest I would like nothing more than to forget them. Actually I would just love to forget everything about this book if I could.
I usually don’t mind violence in books, I can read about a lot of it without it actually getting to me. But this book is the exception to that. I really had problems while reading it and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get those violent scenes from my mind.
The One Where Chandler Can’t Cry – a book that did not make you as emotional as others:
The One Where Joey Doesn’t Share Food – a book you won’t ever lend:
(nearly all) OF MY BOOKS…Honestly, I’m not one for lending out books. First of all I don’t know many people that are readers in real life, so no one really needs to borrow my books in the first place. BUT I couldn’t lend books to anyone who I didn’t trust not to damage them – which is nearly everyone! So basically the only person I would lend books to is my best friend, since she loves reading and books as much as I do.
The One With the Thumb – a recent read that you would give two thumbs up to:
It should come to no surprise that I’m choosing A Darker Shade of Magic for this one. I read it just last month, for the first time, and I absolutely adored it. I loved everything about this book – from the world that Victoria Schwab created, to the magic, characters and story. This has definitely become one of my new favourite books.
I have written a full review for this book, where I go into much more detail as to why exactly I loved this book. You can check out that review HERE. And don’t worry, it’s spoiler free!
The One With the Ick Factor – a book with a pet peeve:
I have quiet a few pet peeves when it comes to the story and characters within a book.
(Or rather I just realised that, while I was thinking about it for this post.) So instead I have decided to write down a few of my pet peeves when it comes to physical copies of books!
- When the covers change in the middle of the series.
- And also when the books in the same series are different heights.
- Stickers on the cover that are absolutely impossible to remove.
- Pictures of real life people on the cover.
The One With The Lesbian Wedding – favorite LGBTQ book couple:
It should come to no surprise that I’m picking Ari and Dante from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. I adore those two, as individual characters and as a couple as well.
(Obviously, otherwise I wouldn’t have picked them for this category.)
I just love this book, I have read it either three or four times so far and I’m sure I’ll reread it more times in the future as well. I’m really exited about the sequel to this novel! And I can’t wait until we get more information about it, I just NEED to read more about these two!
