Autumn Book Tag

I saw this tag in The Worn Bookmark and decided that I haven’t done one in a long time! 😀 And plus this one seems super-short and I’m super-lazy, so you can do the math 😛

What is your favorite thing about Autumn?

We don’t really have the typical “autumn” here in India. WE have really unpredictable during this time period, and I love that as well as hate it. ^_^

What book reminds you of your school days?

8472300

I read this book AGES ago as a kid, and it isn’t even really good, but it very school-ish.

And:

42607

Errr, lots of memories. I’m sure my classmates will understand. 😉

What book cover reminds you of Autumn?

3473

Obviously, this one will be a very common choice.

And:

What is your favorite horror or Halloween film?

Ummm, I hate horror movies. I haven’t watched ONE. Sorry. The scariest ENGLISH horror movie I watched was The Monster House (they gave it on Cartoon Network). Its a very cute movie. 😛

Can I mention Hindi movies? Then its:

Uggh, creepy..

What Fall book release are you most looking forward to?

20875599

😀 😀 CoHo!!!!

What Autumn movie release are you most anticipating?

None. I’m not a movie person. And waiiiiit a second, I thought this was a BOOK tag!

What are three books you plan to read this Autumn?

Any three?

       9571478798980011867860

I’m in a historical romance genre reading spree. 😛

So that’s it !!!! If you want to do the tag, just comment below! 😀

R.I.P It Or SHIP It Tag

I don’t remember who (sorry!!), but someone had tagged me to do this tag, and obviously, this is one of the coolest tags I’ve ever done. The rules are simple:

1. Write down the names of characters from different books on scraps of paper. You can do as many as you like, but I did 20 (10 girls and 10 boys)

2. Put them in a container of your choosing.

3. Pull out two names at the time to form your own couples.

4. Decision time! Do you ship them or do you want their relationship to die a peaceful/painful death? Tell the world!

Note: I love all the original pairings, so lets forget them for a while, and focus on the characters as single individuals. 🙂

  1. Nastya (Sea Of Tranquility) 💗 Four (Divergent)

I’m going to SHIP them, because Nastya’s troubled past, volatile temper and strong personality will cause an explosive, dramatic but passionate relationship with Four.

2. Hermione (Harry Potter series) 💗 Cedric Diggory (Harry Potter)

😀 I love them both, so yeah, I’ll ship this!!!! Strange that both are actually from the same world, so it can only be called the work of Fate. 😀 Imagine, Hermione in all her Hermione-y awesomeness and Cedric Diggory being all cute and understanding and all… *sigh* 😛

3. Augustus (TFIOS) 💔  Layken (Slammed)

They just won’t work. Somehow. I cannot imagine them together. I say, R.I.P it !!!!

4. Etienne (Anna And The French Kiss) 💔 Tris (Divergent)

LOL.. 😀 😀 R.I.P It!!! This can’t happen!! Can you imagine?? 😀

5. Day (Legend series) 💗 Annabeth (Percy Jackson series)

Match made in heaven!! They’d be so cute together! She’s intellectually badass and he’s just crazily cute and amazing, not to mention badass too.. Ship it!!

6. Christian Grey (50 Shades) 💔 Hazel (TFIOS)

Uh, no. Just NO!! R.I.P it!!!!! Heh, Hazel would take none of the initial crap from Grey.

7. Daemon (Lux series) 💔 Anastasia Steele (50 shades)

I can’t fathom these two together. Daemon is one of my all-time favorite characters, and Anastasia is….not.

8. Sebastian (The Mortal Instruments series) 💗 Anna (Anna And The French Kiss)

What if she manages to change him? You never know. So being the ultra-optimistic person that I am, and because I always felt that Sebastian (or Jonathan) should be given a chance of redemption, I’ll ship it!

9. Finn (Trylle Trilogy) 💗 June (Legend series)

Ship it!! They’d have a highly intellectual and serious relationship, and they’d make a beautiful couple.

10. Patch (Hush, Hush series) 💔 Katniss (The Hunger Games)

As much as I love Patch, he’s too alpha and casual for Katniss. She’d just kick him out of her life at first meeting. R.I.P it!!!

This was sooooo fun!!! 😀 😀 😀 If you want to do this tag just comment below, and I’ll tag you. 🙂

P.S.: I sort of stole the cute heart images from AlexTheShadowGirl .. 😛

Totally Didn’t Book Tag

SODA

Thank you Find Me At The Library for tagging me here!! 🙂

1. Totally didn’t need to have a sequel/sequels

24770

This book could have been ended in one. I didn’t even like the next books so much. But the concept BLEW my mind.

2. Totally didn’t need to have more than one point of view!

I’m sorry, I ADORE dual povs.. They change the entire dynamics!

3. Totally didn’t need to change cover art through the middle of a series!

I’ve never come across a massacre like that! Sorry for another non-answer!

4. Totally didn’t need a love triangle!

41865

As if Edward and Bella’s drama weren’t enough, she shows us Jacob and then snatches him away. 😦

I can’t resist saying something negative from this book.. 😛

2767052

Why was Gale even there????

5. Totally didn’t need this book to be included in this series!

10203031

Err.. I’m aware that the series would be incomplete without this book, but c’mon!!!! I DID NOT like it.

6. Totally didn’t need a cliffhanger!

17199504

The next book wasn’t worth finishing. I don’t know, I might try again someday. But my expectations were soaring very very high.

7. Totally didn’t need to have just one point of view!

10818853

I wanted Christian’s POV. What could be so wrong with his head????? I’m glad to have Grey now, but I wish it was all in the same book. 😦

8. Totally didn’t need that much hype!

41865

SURPRISE!!!!!! Dude, what’s so special about a sparkly vampire?????

9. Totally didn’t need a relative book reference! (e.g. Hunger Games fan would love Divergent.)

I agree with Find Me At The Library. Nothing wrong with references.

10. Totally didn’t deserve my time!

15739018

I COULD have named any bad book, but this book.. its just special. *sarcastic smile*

Finally!!!!!! I haven’t done a tag for sooooo long!!! 😀 And songs+books= awesomeness!!! So here we go…

Enough said.

3 – Britney Spears – Oops!… I did it again – Pick a book you read more than twice

15739018

You can decipher the cover??? You think its bad???? Multiply it by 100000, you’ll get how bad the book is.. P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C…

6 – Skylar Grey – Final Warning – Pick a book with a kick-butt protagonist you’d not want to tick off

I’m finally reading this book, and I don’t wanna tick off Bella simply because she isn’t worth my precious time. 😛

7 – My Chemical Romance – I’m not Okay – Pick a book that deals with a hard topic like loss or bullying

I loved this book so much… :’-(

8 – Linkin Park – Breaking the Habit – Pick a book you read which was outside of your usual comfort zone yet you still enjoyed reading

I usually don’t read such realistic fiction, that too by Indian authors, but this book blew my mind.

9 – Troye Sivan – Happy little Pill – Pick a book that makes you happy

Its so adorable!!!! How can it not be a happy pill?? 😀
