You Guys: OH MY...!
Me: *Looks around* ...What?
You Guys: Y-Y... YOU'RE POSTING!
Me: Er... yeah. I've made a few posts this week already, y'know!
You Guys: BUT YOU'RE ACTUALLY MAKING A REAL POST! A REAL, FULL-LENGTH POST!
Me: Um... yes, I am.
You Guys: WE THOUGHT THIS DAY WOULD NEVER COME!
Yes, guys, it's true! I am officially making a REAL POST!
*People gasp all around me*
I apologize- this was supposed to be posted yesterday.
And, uh... it wasn't.
I'm sorry- I completely forgot about it until right about when I had to get off my computer! D:
Anyways, instead of, y'know, typing a paragraph about how I've been lazy and on Thanksgiving break and slightly uninspired, why don't we just get on with the tag? XD!
Alright, so this tag is called The Bibliophile Sweater Tag!
Before I start, let me go over the rules!
- Give the person who tagged you a never-ending supply of cookies (or just thank them - either works)
THANK YOU LOSTTTTTT!!! *Gives cookies*
- Answer all the questions and use the blog graphic for this tag somewhere in your post
Done and done!
- Pass along the tag to at least five other people
Er... hasn't pretty much everyone else done this tag by now? Pretty sure I'm one of the last, XD!
- Wear a sweater (okay, this is optional...but why wouldn't you want to??)
OOOOH! I've been preparing for this!
*Runs and grabs pink sweater*
Fuzzy sweater (a book that is the epitome of comfort)
Hmm, let's see...
I'd have to go with Sisters! The whole book is written in a comic-like style, but it's such a relatable book, and to me, that's comforting! XD!
It shows that, even though siblings may not get along most of the time, they DO come together when they need to, and that, deep down, they always love each other!
Striped sweater (book which you devoured every line of)
Er... can I choose something WITHOUT a cover?
That sounds odd, but I promise, it's a real story!
Okay, I'm gonna say Jamaasian High, by Lostfairy!
OKAY, OKAY, before you all go throwing rotten bananas at me and booing (XD), YES, I am aware that the Jamaasian series is a series us bloggers made up for fun, and the stories are technically officially published or anything.
BUT I LOVE THESE STORIES, OKAY GUYS!?
Like, seriously, they're awesome. XDD!
Anyways, Lostfairy's Jamaasian High is fun, exciting, and, ever since the latest chapter, I've been DYING to read more!
Seriously guys, If JH was a real high school, I would go there. XDD!
Ugly Christmas sweater (book with a weird cover)
(Eek, the book in this picture is in kinda-bad condition!)
So, yes, there's an evil-looking bunny on top of a dog, and a cat kinda freakily peeking out from behind the dog. XD!
I apologize- I couldn't find a book with an amazingly-odd cover on my bookshelf, XD!
However, I remember loving this book back in... 3rd grade, was it? I honestly don't know, but TRUST ME, I REMEMBER THE DETAILS! XD!
Oh, and I HAVE re-read it since then, haha!
It's actually pretty funny, and it was so popular that there were a few more books featuring the characters made a bit later!
Funny story: I was reading one of those other books one night (quite a while back- 4th grade, maybe?), and, in the book, it suddenly got stormy. It was stormy outside IRL as well, and there was even some hail, in fact.
Then, the book TOTALLY freaked me out by acting like one of the characters had died, and I just suddenly got really jumpy.
Younger Me (in my head): "Oh no, it's dark and stormy in the book, and it's dark and stormy here, and something really bad happened in the book, so WHAT IF SOMETHING REALLY BAD HAPPENS HERE IN REAL LIFE!?"
Yeah, that was a GREAT way to go to bed. XD!
Cashmere sweater (most expensive book you've bought)
Er... have I ever bought a book that's over $20?
Er, can I choose a SET of books? XD!
They had different covers back then, but this- the first set of Warriors books- cost me a lot! I don't exactly remember HOW MUCH, but... er... a lot? XD!
This was my first ever set of Warriors books I completed, so they're very special to me!
Hoodie (favorite classic book)
I didn't personally buy this book, but I had heard this was a good book from many people, and, when I finally got it (I, uh, forgot how), I was excited to read it!
If you didn't know, I was OBSESSED with dogs back when I was in elementary. I still love them a TON, in fact!
But, even now, if a book has a furry animal on the cover, I just HAVE to read it!
So this book was a perfect fit for me! I remember loving it- maybe I'll read it again over Christmas break!
Also, it has an award, as you can see, so that normally means it's really good, XD!
Seems to be a classic to me, hehe!
Seems to be a classic to me, hehe!
Cardigan (book that you bought on impulse)
I saw that this book had short stories about Mapleshade AND Ravenpaw, so I HAD to have it! Mapleshade is by far my favorite villain in the Warriors series, and Ravenpaw is one of my favorite characters in general! And I've always wondered about Goosefeather- he was very mysterious when he showed up in Bluestar's Prophecy.
So I ordered this book off of Amazon as soon as I heard about the release of it!
I was not disappointed- all three of the stories were AMAZING, and they really explained a lot!
Turtleneck sweater (book from your childhood)
Ooh! So many choices...
OH! I KNOW!
Guys, you have NO IDEA how many times I checked this book out from the library in elementary.
IT'S SO CUTE!
I always hung around the cats-and-dogs section of the library (c'mon, it's not THAT surprising, now is it? XD!), and, once I had read this book, I kept checking it out at random times throughout the years, because it's just so CUTE, and the illustrations are ADORABLE!
This is one of the pages from it!
Ah, that kitten is adorable. I WANT TO HUG HIMMMMM!
Ahem... uh... okay... I think you guys get the point: I loved this book. XD!
Homemade knitted sweater (book that is Indie-published)
Hehe... whoops! Nothing to see here! If I'm being honest... I have no idea what an Indie-published book even IS!
Hold on, lemmie look it up.
I still don't get it, eheheh.
*Clicks on different websites*
Okay, I THINK I get it now.
Yeah, I don't know of any books I've read that are published like that!
V-neck sweater (book that did not meet your expectations)
SPOILERS AHEAD! Just a warning!
The book I'm talking about, out of these three, is Spottedleaf's Heart.
I didn't technically HATE it.
I just thought it'd be about, y'know, SpottedLEAF. All her inside thoughts and feelings. How she died.
I didn't think expect it to talk about Spottedleaf when she was SpottedPAW, and still really young.
I was kinda disappointed, partly because of that, and partly because some of Spottedleaf's decisions in that book were... not exactly ones I'd recommend.
But I wasn't annoyed, really. Disappointed. But not annoyed that it wasn't what I wanted.
Still, I wish I knew more about Spottedleaf's thoughts when she was a full-grown cat, not an apprentice.
Argyle sweater (book with a unique format)
My mom got me this book a few years ago, and this year, I finally took it off of my bookshelf and read it!
I chose A Wrinkle In Time for "book with a unique format" because... well, the writing is a lot simpler than what I'm used to, and what a lot of books are written like now. It doesn't describe the setting super vividly, like in the Warriors books, and there aren't many words written in italics, which are normally used to say what a character is thinking. Yet, it's still such an amazing book! Plus, the simple writing style kinda lets the reader make up the missing details!
Polka dot sweater (a book with well-rounded characters)
Can I maaaaybe copy Lostfairy on this one? Just this once? PLEEEAASE?
You Guys: Um, well-
You Guys: Aaaaand she did it anyway.
XDD! Anyways, yes, The Maze Runner is my choice for this one, because I love how different the characters are, and all their different traits! Thomas is smart and thoughtful, Newt keeps everyone together (guess that's why he's "The Glue", huh Lost? XD!), and is a natural leader, and Minho is brave and sarcastic.
There are so many more characters I could talk about, but that'd take forever, so I'll just leave it at those 3! XD!
OH MY GOODNESS
I DID IT GUYS
I FINALLY FINISHED THIS TAG!
I DID IT GUYS
I FINALLY FINISHED THIS TAG!
You would think a post like this would only take an hour or so, right?
I worked on this on-and-off for about three days.
Mmm hmm, that's me. XDD!
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this obviously-overdue post, hehe! Until I see you all again, remember to PARTY HARD, BE KIND, and JAM ON! Byeeeee, mah bold bananas! XD!
