My Extra Question for You:
How do you pick a certain book to read? What goes through your head?
A BOOK YOU STARTED BUT NEVER FINISHED…BUT WANT TO FINISH. WHAT STOPPED YOU FROM READING IT?
I just read an excerpt from the book online when I was looking for some good books to read. The writing is too easy to read, but I really like the plot. I want to continue this, I haven’t found it on hard copy, only as an eBook so I’ll wait a bit more to get my hands on it.
WHAT ELEMENTS ATTRACT YOU TO A BOOK, WHICH MAKES YOU READ IT?
Magic, action, and love are like the main three for me. I want to be able to be amazed by magic, to cry over those who died in a fight, and to ship characters like crazy!
WHICH BOOKS DO YOU PREFER E-COPY OR HARD COPY?
At the moment I’m really into eBooks just because I don’t have anymore room for my books. Sometimes eBooks are easier to read for me (you can change the font/size so it’s a bit easier), but I’m fine with hard copy books too. Though I love to own them, I have no more space in my humble little home, so I just borrow them now.
IS IT FAIR TO JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS FILM?
No. The books are always different than the films, try reading them and compare.
But I’m not sold on The Maze Runner right now… I liked the movies a lot, but then (spoilers)
some people die and it will be painful to read that, plus I’m mad at Theresa in the movie. I know I’m probably being a hypocrite, but… yeah I got nothing.
Some books are worth it though, so try it! (Just not including me!)
WHAT BOOK DID YOU JUDGE BADLY BY ITS COVER AND ENDED UP LOVING?
I really don’t like that cover. I shrunk it for you.
The cover was terrible, but don’t let it fool you, it’s a really great read and I hope you try it. If you want to know more about this book than click to see my review here.
WHICH BOOK CHARACTER HAVE YOU FELT THE MOST KIN WITH AND ABLE TO RELATE WITH?
I felt as that I could relate to Sydney Sage from Bloodlines and to Lily from P.S. I Like You.
I’m both responsible and have a tendency to be wary with vampires like Sydney, and I’m weird and artistic like Lily. If these two characters were one person they could be my twin, haha. 😀
Jasmine’s Extra Question
HOW DO YOU FEEL AFTER YOU FINISHED READING?
This gif says it all really.
Here is a chart-ish thing of what I feel when I finish a book:
Cliff-Hangers: What just happened?
Not-Really-Into-Book: Thank gosh it’s over now.
Great book: Awe *sniff sniff* I liked that.
50 100 Word Story:
There once was a boy, and his name was Eugene Fitzherbert Jr. He would always make his mother go crazy with his antics, and make is father proud of his sneaky resourcefulness. Eugene was a prince! He could get away with murder if he wanted to; he spun tales of his own at night, and by day he would visit his older cousin Ana and they would have the best of fun. For Ana had a young daughter, a princess, who would surprise little Eugene. They would always fight and tease, but one day soon, they’ll have their own story.
