Epic Reads Book Tag

This was a book tag created by Margot, one of the lovely ladies from Epic Reads, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity for this one because the questions are much more dynamic than the typical book tag you find floating around (or at least what I’ve seen).

  1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
    1. I’d invited Sarah J Maas to tea and her character Celeana because two badass ladies at tea is a freakin’ awesome party, right? And I’d probably serve, like… cheese and crackers because I doubt either one would care much. I’d have too many questions and fangirly moments for them to stop and chew things, anyway.
  2. What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?
    1. Hmm… Well, if we’re basing this off of books I’ve read in the past 12-13 months, I’d say a prequel for either “Divergent” by Veronica Roth or any story from Harry Potter. I’d love to read about Harry’s parents in Hogwarts.
  3. Which two characters (NOT from the same book)  do you think would make a good couple?
    1. I think Cath from “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell and Simon from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare would make a good couple because both of them are nerdy and geeky and could totally talk about a lot of things together. I’m sure Simon would jump on the fangirl bandwagon with Cath, right?
  4. If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and could only say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
    1. If I saw Sarah J Maas on the subway, 1) I think I’d be too nervous to say anything, but 2) if I did it would probably be something like, “I love your books so much!” And a big smile plastered on my face.
  5. What book made you a reader and why?
    1. I can’t really pinpoint this as I’ve always loved to read and collect books (it started at an early age, man), but one book that stands out significantly to me as a child was “Stellaluna” by Janell Cannon. Every time I think back to my childhood I can always picture this book, along with “Verdi,” also by Cannon. I loved the art style and the stories to them. They were just very captivating to me as a little girl.
  6. Incendio! Your bookshelf caught on fire. Show us the one book you would save.
    1. 1) I’d cry. 2) I’d probably go after either one of two books: “Heir of Fire” by Sarah J Maas or “Eclipse” by Stephenie Meyer. I’d go after Maas’s book because I love that one so much in the series, and I’d go after Meyer’s book because it’s signed and has “To Rayna” written in it. So yeah.
  7. Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?
    1. As I haven’t read many dystopians yet, I’m going to have to go with “Divergent” and the faction system. I already know I’d be placed in Abnegation, so there’s that… And I guess I pick it because it seems like a nice system until, you know, people want to destroy and take over everything.
  8. What is your most epic read of all time?
    1. The “Fushigi Yuugi” manga series by Yuu Watase. This was one of the first manga series I ever read way back when I got into manga and anime in middle school. I love this series so much, it’s my absolute favorite and I’m beyond glad I read it. It’s magical, witty, funny, series, steamy, there’s romance… it’s got so many things I love wrapped up in one. Plus, Watase’s art style is amazing! Love, love, love!
  9. Also, tag some friends now to answer these questions.
    1. It’s not really a question, but there it is! I challenge anyone who reads this to do this tag, either on their own blog or in the comments below! I hope you enjoyed and found this engaging – I did!
