The Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Melissa @Book Nerd Momo to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out her blog!


1. Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel

Okay. Lets be clear about something: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury was simply fantastic as a standalone. The story wrapped up beautifully and I loved how everything turned out to be. BUT I just need more Zahra and Aladdin in my life! I just want to read more about them and their adventures. I would love for even a novella, if not a whole book. (Oh, you should definitely read this book if you haven’t yet!)

The Forbidden Wish


2. Totally Should’ve Gotten A Spin-Off Series

WARNING: I’m totally going to ramble about Harry Potter for a bit.

There are sooo many spin-off series that I want from the Harry Potter series! (Like a lot of other people, probably.) I think I just want more and more from this world. Here are some spin-off series/books that I would love to have:

  • The Marauders Era – I would love to read about their adventures and how they all met. I would especially LOVE those books to be from Sirius’ point of view, as I would love to see the relationships and politics in a pure blood family. (Plus, he is one of my favourite characters so there is that as well.)
  • The Founders Era – I think the establishing of Hogwarts would be such an interesting story! After all, we have heard about the four Founders, but wouldn’t it be amazing to read about their adventures and lives?
  • Voldemort’s time at Hogwarts – I’m fascinated by teenage Voldemort (have always been) and how he established his following. It would really be interesting to read about, his backstory always intrigued me. Plus it would be fascinating to read from his point of view (both when he was sane and later as well).
  • Hogwarts a History – Ummm…I just REALLY want that book to exist! It’s referenced sooo many times throughout the Harry Potter series and I would love to have a copy of it as well. It would be amazing to have the whole history of Hogwarts in one place and be able to actually read it.

Okay…I have seriously rambled enough about Harry Potter. Moving on!


3. An Author Who Should Write More Books

The first person that came to my mind when I saw this question was Erin Morgenstern. The Night Circus is one of my all time favourite books, I simply ADORED everything about it. Her writing style is one of the most beautiful that I have ever encountered. Sadly she hasn’t written any other books yet. Though I’m hoping with each day that there will be an announcement that she is coming out with another book!

The Night Circus


4. A Character Who Totally Should’ve Ended Up With Someone Else

I really wanted Alina to end up with someone else. Or anybody else for that matter, other than the person she chose in the end. This is the only pairing where I’m VERY unhappy with the way things turned out to be. That has probably to do with the fact that I hated the person she picked. I don’t think I will ever get over this…Sigh. (I read this series years ago and it’s still bothering me a lot.)


5. Totally Should’ve Had A Movie Franchise

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin was such a fast and action packed book! The setting of the story is very interesting as well and I would love to see it on screen. I just have a feeling that this book would make an amazing movie! It’s definitely one that I would love to see. I have heard that the second book of this duology is amazing as well, but I have yet to read it so I can’t say anything about that yet.

Wolf by Wolf


6. Totally Should’ve Kept The Original Covers

The Diviners has one of the most beautiful covers that I have ever seen. The hardcover edition (which I own) is even more beautiful, as it has very pretty gold details under the dust-jacket. For some reason the publishers decided to change the covers for the other books in this series and all of them are beyond bad. Seriously, each is worse than the one before.

The Diviners


7. Totally Should’ve Stopped At Book One

This is kind of a cheat answer, as I haven’t actually read the rest of the series. Anyway, I read The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I remember enjoying it. (Though I didn’t love it and I had problems with it.) I was unsure whether I wanted to continue the series or not. A TON of people told me that the series only got worse and worse, so I decided to look up spoiler and I had to agree – this series just went downhill.

The Maze Runner

The Beauty and the Beast || Book Tag

Tag

I was tagged by two amazing people to do this tag. They were Beth @Reading Every Night and Aria @Snow White Hates Apples. Thank you both once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out their blogs!

Beauty and the Beast was actually my favourite Disney movie growing up. I asked my mom which one I used to watch the most and she said this one – “I had to watch it at least once a week” those were her exact words. So I’m very exited to be doing this tag now! Even though I was actually tagged ages ago, but I’m seriously the worst when it comes to keeping up with book tags and awards. (As you all should probably know by now.)


RULES:

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Mention the creator; Kirsty at Kirsty and the Cat Read.
  • Match a book to each of the songs/characters below.
  • Tag as many people as you like.

“Tale As Old As Time”
A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.

Morally grey characters and antiheroes.

I don’t know if this can count as a theme, but I’m counting it as one anyway. Morally grey characters and antiheroes are my favourite ones to read about! (Which you probably already know, as I keep mentioning this at every opportunity that I have.) There is just something compelling about them and they fascinate me. I would NEVER get bored reading about them.


Belle:
A book you brought for its beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.


Beast:
A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.

The Martian was a book that I didn’t know what to expect from. Honestly I didn’t have that high expectations for it, simply because science fiction wasn’t a genre that I read much from. Especially when it came to stories like this, where a character is trapped on another planet. The reason I decided to read this book was because the movie was coming out soon – I just randomly decided to pick it up. This book blew me away! I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, I even managed to finish it in one day.

The Martian


Gaston:
A book everyone loves that you don’t.

Okay, lets be real: There is no such thing as a book that everyone loves! No matter how popular a book is, there is going to be people who love it or hate it. I decided to go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell for this one, as it was one of the most hyped books at the time that I read it. Everyone seemed to love it and I kept getting it recommended. I didn’t enjoy it that much, I didn’t outright hate it – it wasn’t that horrible. I just didn’t find it to be as good as people said it was, plus I had some major problems with it as well.

Eleanor and Park


Lefou:
A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart.

The only character for this question that came to my mind was Leo Valdez from The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. (I actually had a hard time thinking of an answer for this one.) I honestly didn’t care that much about Jason in this first book, probably because I expected to read about Percy (who is one of my favourite characters EVER) but that didn’t happen. However, I completely adored Leo! He was definitely my favourite character from this book!

Percy Jackson


Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumière & Cogsworth:
A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.

A book series that helped me through some tough times was the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. The first time I read this series was when I was in elementary school (when I was around 13 or 14) during the summer holidays. I didn’t have many friends back then and I mostly spent my time alone at home, I was very lonely. (I just felt like I didn’t belong anywhere, in any friend group.)

Reading all the Harry Potter books during that summer helped me a lot, they made me very happy! Now, whenever I feel sad or down I tend to reread at least one of the books. They just always manage to lift my mood no matter what, and I love getting back into the  magical world of Harry Potter. This is definitely the perfect series for this question.


“Something There”
A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.

For this question I’m cheating a little bit. When I’m not enjoying a series I don’t continue reading it, so finding one that picks up as the books continue wasn’t possible for me. (Plus I tend to dislike the endings to trilogies, so there is that as well.) So instead I decided to go with a series that just keeps getting better with each book.

I adored Eragon, it was such a fun book. I really liked the characters and the world, plus it has dragons – as you may know I simply LOVE dragons!! The second book, Eldest, was even better. I enjoyed seeing all the character development and finding out more about the world was amazing as well. (Though this second book was a lot slower than the first, which I didn’t mind.) I’m currently reading Brisingr and so far I’m loving it – even more than the second one!! This is kind of a cheat answer, as I haven’t read the whole series but I’m still going with it. (Though I’m hopeful that I will love it as well.)


“Be Our Guest”
A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.

The first two characters that came to my mind were Zahra and Aladdin from The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury, so I’m going with the two of them. They are two of my all time favourite characters and I would love to get to meet them. I have a feeling that having them over for dinner would be a lot of fun as well! I would love to talk to them and hear about their adventures, the stories they grew up with and many more things. The more I think about this, the more I want to meet both of them!

The Forbidden Wish


I tag EVERYONE who loves Beauty and the Beast and wants to do this tag!

Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

The Would You Rather Tag

Tag

I was tagged by the lovely sisters Shanya and Tanya @Twin Bookmarks to do this tag. Thank you both once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out their blog!


1. Have an unlimited money for Ebooks, or a 5,000 dollar B&N gift-card?

As much as I love physical books, I would have to go with the unlimited money for Ebooks. Why? Simply because it’s unlimited money and I could always buy books without worrying if I’m going to have enough money for other things (like food and other life important things).


2. Meet any deceased poet, or J.K. Rowling?

Without a doubt J. K. Rowling. I really don’t have to think about this one at all. She is one of my all time favourite authors, plus the Harry Potter series had the most influence on me as a reader. (And is the one series that I have reread the most times.) I would simply love to chat with J. K. Rowling and thank her as well.

People


3. Write the world’s most famous book, or visit the world of your favourite book for one day?

Probably write the world’s most famous book. Most of my favourite books have terrible worlds and I don’t really want to be in them, even if it’s only for a day. And if I ended up visiting the world of Harry Potter I would just feel depressed because I would miss being in it (which wouldn’t be good at all). Plus I do want to write a book, so there is that as well.


4. Choose ______ or ______ ? (Insert characters from your favourite fictional love triangle.)

Well, my favourite love triangle (or actually the only one that I like) is the one between Will, Tessa and Jem from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. And I would choose Will, which probably isn’t a surprise to anyone who knows me – after all he is the kind of character that I tend to love.

 


5. Experience Hogwarts in a very realistic and accurate virtual reality, or travel around the world for a year, at no cost.

As much as I love Hogwarts, I have to go with traveling the world for a year. Traveling is something that I always want to do, I just love exploring new places. But, as you all probably know, traveling isn’t that cheap and I really don’t have the money to do a lot of it. So getting to travel for a whole year without a cost would be a dream come true!

The Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag || 2017 Edition

Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Heather @The Sassy Book Geek to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!

As you can probably tell by the title, this isn’t the first time that I’m doing this tag. I have done it the previous two years as well and it’s become somewhat of a tradition. (The 2015 Edition and 2016 Edition, if you are interested in checking them out.) This year I haven’t been reading as much, I have only finished 15 books so far – so my answers might be a bit repetitive. Although, it does make actually picking my answers easier, so there is that as well!


1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017

It has to be, without a doubt, A Darker Shade of Magic by the wonderful Victoria Schwab. This book was simply amazing in every aspect! I loved the world and magic system that Schwab has created within this story. I can’t wait to continue reading this series and getting more information about the world, as I’m VERY fascinated by it. The characters were wonderful as well! The story, though slow at the beginning, turned out to be amazing as well.

And I have rambled enough, if you want more I do have a full review which you can check out. 😉

Victoria Schwab


2. BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017

I haven’t actually read that many sequels this year. (Or any really. For whatever reason, I definitely NEED to change that!) One that I did read was City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare and I really enjoyed this book, even though I didn’t completely love it. It was a lot better than the first book. (No, I still don’t like either Clary or Jace.) I’m very much looking forward to continuing this series, especially if the books keep getting better!

I have a full review for this book, so if you want to know more of my thoughts you can check it out.

Shadowhunters


3. MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR

It’s obviously The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo. I have adored both The Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows duology. I’m basically exited about any book that Leigh Bardugo releases and this one is no exception! The Language of Thorns is a collection of fairy tales that are told in the Grisha universe. I ADORE fairy tales! So that is another reason that I’m beyond exited about this book to come out! I have also heard that it’s illustrated, which makes it even better!

Grisha


4. BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

A book that I expected a lot from was Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson, but it ended up disappointing me very much instead. The premise sounded very interesting and like something that I would immensely enjoy. I was immediately drawn to it when I saw that it has some horror story retelling. (Plus the cover is simply gorgeous as well!) This book turned out to be rather flat for me, with a few interesting aspects but also some major problems.

I have a full review of this book where I go more into detail as to why I didn’t enjoy it and the problems that I had with it. So if you want to know more of my thoughts you can check it out.

Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault


5. BIGGEST SURPRISE

The book that surprised me the most was Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson. This is a short story collection of dark tales, as the title implies. Don’t get me wrong, this book wasn’t one of my favourites (I ended up giving it 3.5 stars) but the stories in itself surprised me very much! I didn’t expected them to be as eerie and unnerving as they were. That was the aspect of these short stories that I enjoyed the most.

Shirley Jackson


6. FAVOURITE NEW AUTHOR

No one actually. For an author to become one of my favourites I need to read at least a few books by them (two or more). There wasn’t a single new author that I read multiple books from this year and that’s why I don’t have a new favourite one.


7. NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH

This one I actually had to think about, as I don’t have fictional crushes that often. In the end I decided to go with Kell from A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab. I simply adored him as a character and I can’t wait to read the other books from this series to get more of him in them. (I’m beyond exited to read the other two books in this series, as I have heard that they only get better!)

Victoria Schwab


8. NEWEST FAVOURITE CHARACTER

Two of my new favourite characters are Zahra and Aladdin from The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury. They were both such strong characters in their own way and I simply adored them. I loved them on their own and together as well. Their interactions were amazing to read! Everyone needs to read this book, as it was simply fantastic!

The Forbidden Wish


9. BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

The only book that I remember that made me cry was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, but that’s no surprise as I always end up crying whenever I reread a Harry Potter book. That’s just a thing that happens. I guess that I’m just to emotionally attached to this series. I read the illustrated edition of this book for the fist time this year and it was simply beautiful!

Harry Potter


10. BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY

The first book that came to my mind was The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. Why? Because I reread this book this year and ended up loving it as much as I did the first time I read it. It just made me very happy to get back into this story and world once again. This book is beautifully written with an amazing story and characters. This is definitely a book that I will be rereading many times in the future!

Roshani Chokshi


11. FAVOURITE BOOK TO FILM ADAPTATION

None actually. I haven’t seen a single book to movie adaptation this year, so I can’t possibly have a favourite one. In general I’m just not a big movie person, I rarely end up watching movie. I just prefer watching tv shows and anime over movies.


12. FAVOURITE POST YOU’VE DONE THIS YEAR

I have published 54 posts in the first six months of this year. How in the world do you expect me to choose one favourite among them?! I love and am proud of all the posts that I publish, otherwise they would end up in the trash and not published at all. I guess a few posts that I particularly liked from the first half of the year are:


13. MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT THIS YEAR

I haven’t been buying that many books this year. I’m actually on a book buying ban where I need to read 5 books before buying one new one. And seeing as I haven’t been reading much this year, I haven’t been buying many books either. A gorgeous book that I bought for my birthday was Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, this book is simply stunning!

Neil Gaiman


14. NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO

I really want to read Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee. Contemporary isn’t a genre that I generally gravitate towards, as I’m mostly not interested by the stories (with a few exceptions of course). This book has an asexual main character and I simply NEED to read it for that! If you didn’t know, I identify as asexual and I have never read a book about an asexual character before. I have heard amazing things about this book so far and I’m very exited to get my hands on it!

Tash Hearts Tolstoy


15. WHAT BOOK DO YOU NEED TO READ BY THE END OF THE YEAR?

Or rather what books do I want to read by the end of the year. I really want to read more books by Victoria Schwab, who is one of my favourite authors. I want to finish the Shades of Magic series and I want to start the This Savage Song duology (maybe even finish that one as well). I know that I will love all of these books, I just simply NEED to get to them!


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

The Dim Sum Book Tag

Food

I was tagged by two amazing bloggers to do this tag! They were Reg @She Latitude and Fadwa @Word Wonders. Thank you both sooo much once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out their blogs!

This tag was originally created by Joey @Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Jenna @Reading With Jenna. Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine whereby food is served in small (tapas-like) portions and is common during yum cha (which literally means: drinking tea). This tag is inspired by good company and good eats.

Here are some rules to devour this tag

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  • Devour dim sum and answer the tag questions.
  • Tag five others to join your round table for some dim sum fun.
  • Food coma.

Tea: A book that started off hot but quickly turned cold.

I was really enjoying Truthwitch by Susan Dennard in the beginning. I was intrigued by the characters and I wanted to know more about the magic and the world of this book. Sadly this book really lacked world-building, which is one of my personal favourite elements when it comes to fantasy books. And I didn’t particularly come to like the characters either. This was a rather disappointing book for me.

Truthwitch


Chiu Chow Dumpling: A book that features elements of land and sea.

Well, the first thing that popped into my mind was mermaid books, but seeing how I haven’t read any (or don’t remember reading any) that wouldn’t work out. Then I was  seriously struggling to come up with an answer UNTIL I saw Six of Crows on my shelf and remembered that part of it takes place on a boat and the other on land. Well, I found the perfect answer for this question!

Grisha


Rice Noodle Roll: A favourite multilayered character you’ve read (i.e. traits? skills? morally ambiguous?).

One of my all time favourite morally ambiguous characters is Victor Vale from Vicious. He is such a complex character and I loved reading about him. (I’m still hoping that there will be more books in this world!) I should also mention Eli, from the same book, as he is also a morally grey character. Though, personally, I liked Victor A LOT more!

Vicious


Shrimp Dumpling: A book with a transparent blurb that gives the story away.

I honestly can’t think of any book for this category. I tend to forget summaries immediately after reading them. (My brain apparently doesn’t comprehend them, or something.) So I really have no idea what blurbs gave away the story, though I’m sure that there are many out there.


Steamed BBQ Pork Buns: A book that is fluffy on the outside but packs a punch of flavour (e.g. message? depth? controversy?).

The first book that came to my mind was My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. From the cover and synopsis I expected a light contemporary read, but it was much more than that. There was a lot more depth to this book and it had important messages as well. This is a book I would recommend everyone to read, especially if you enjoy contemporary.

My Life Next Door


Chicken Feet: A book with divided opinions.

I think it’s quiet obvious why I picked Throne of Glass, or rather the whole series, by Sarah J. Maas. I have read this first book over three years ago and I honestly don’t remember much of it. I did give it 4 stars at that time, but I’m not sure that’s accurate (as I read it at the time I discovered the online book community and was swayed by the hype).

Sarah J Maas


Lotus-Wrapped Sticky Rice: A book you’ve received/given that was nicely packaged.

Both illustrated editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets were Christmas gifts, so they were gifts and also very nicely packaged. (Sadly I don’t have pictures, because I’m impatient and opened them immediately.)


Egg Custard Tart: A book that uses simple ingredients and clichés but executes it perfectly.

Okay, I give up. I DON’T KNOW!! I seriously can’t think of any book that fits this category. I have basically been thinking about this question for days, but I just can’t think of any book that corresponds to this question. So, I’m sorry but I give up!


Mango Pudding with Evaporated Milk: Any book recommendation + beverage/snack that’s a winning combination.

Personally I love drinking warm beverages whenever I’m reading a fantasy book. I don’t know what it is, it just makes me relaxed and I enjoy reading even more that way. My preference of hot beverage is tea, especially black tea. (Before I would say coffee, but I have stopped drinking it.) So my recommendation would be A Game of Thrones and a cup of black tea.


Fried Sesame Balls: A book cover with embossed text/design you just love to run your fingers over.

I love how Percy Jackson’s Greek God by Rick Riordan and illustrated by John Rocco feels! I…don’t really have much to add to that. I have no idea how to describe why exactly I love it, so I shall leave it at this. Just trust me, this book feels amazing! XD

Percy Jackson


Dim Sum Steam Cart: The type of carrying bag you use to bring books around.

Um…I don’t really have one? I carry a book with me in whatever bag I’m carrying that day. Sometimes I have a backpack with me, when I have a lot of stuff to cary. Sometimes only a purse. It really depends on how much stuff I need to bring with me (and how long I’m staying out). Though if I don’t have enough space for a book I bring my Kindle with me. Sooo, I always have something to read wherever I go!


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

The Cookie Book Tag

Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Kat @Life And Other Disasters to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!

I adore cookies! So I’m VERY exited to be doing this tag. Though it does also make me crave cookies, which isn’t the best as I’m not sure I can get my hands on any right now. I NEED ALL THE COOKIES! (Hopefully there are some left in my house!) Anyway…let’s get into the tag. 🙂

GIF


The Rules:

  • In addition to linking back to the person who tagged you, it would be awesome if you link back to Nicole’s original post!
  • Pick a book that corresponds to the cookie’s ‘theme’.
  • Have fun!
  • Tag 1-3 people.

Chocolate Chip

A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed (interpret classic how you want, it can be a classic written 100 years ago or 20 years ago):

I enjoy Gothic classics the most. They are always very atmospheric and manage to suck me right in! Out of the ones that I have read so far, my favourites are Jane Eyre, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula and Frankenstein. They all are amazing books and definitely some of my all time favourite classics.


Thin Mints

A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read (your source(s) of a book being hyped can be from anywhere):

There are quiet a few hyped books that I want to read. But the ones that I have heard the most about, and the ones that seem like I’ll enjoy the most, are these four:


Shortbread

An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of:

Is anyone surprised that I can’t get enough of Victoria Schwab’s books? I thin not. After all I have been mentioning her and my love for her books quiet a lot lately! So far I have read these four books by her and I simply ADORED all of them, they were fantastic. I can’t wait to read the other two books from The Shades of Magic series and I really want to read This Savage Song as well. (Plus everything else she will write in the future.)


Samoas/ Caramel DeLites

An Emotional Rollercoaster (this cookie was hard…so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you):

The first book that came to my mind was Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. This book was definitely a rollercoaster of emotions. From excitement, happiness to despair and sadness. I have definitely felt all of those while reading this book. I think World War II stories hit me the hardest for one reason or another (even alternate reality ones, like this one). I always feel many emotions while reading them, another example is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

Wolf by Wolf


Oreos

A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover:

These are all books that I thought had a beautiful cover, but the story didn’t live up to it.


Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties

A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish):

The book, or rather graphic novel, that immediately came to my mind is Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. I was thinking that this was going to be a cute, light and fluffy story. Probably because the art decieved me. (Or I hadn’t read anything about it.) It really surprised me with the direction it took in the best way possible!

A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/Loving:

I’ll never stop loving and rereading the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I think this is quiet an obvious answer, seeing as I have loved these books for nearly 10 years and reread them many times throughout the years. I’m sure I’ll continue loving them and rereading in the future as well. (Also, no particular reason for putting only the pictures of the first four books – just thought it looked better that way.)

Choose a cookie I didn’t list and make up a question!

I’m stealing Kat‘s idea/question for this one. (Sorry, my brain can’t think of anything currently.) So all the credit goes to her! 😀
