A Couple Blog Tags

My blogging friend Olivia(whose blog, by the way, is really good!) has nominated me for a few tags, so thank you, Olivia!! First, the–

1.  Thank and link to the blogger/s who nominated you
2.  Answer the 11 questions
3.  Nominate/tag 11 bloggers and ask them 11 questions
Okay, here are the 11 questions and their 11 answers:

Do you have a hero(someone who has inspired you)?

The reformers(Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, etc.) and protestants who risked their lives to glorify God have always stood out to me.

Books touch us all: which book or story has touched you in particular?

Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia(surprise, surprise!). But one I don’t talk about as much which has particularly touched me– The Hiding Place. Everyone should read this book.

What was one of the most ridiculous things you have done in front of a stranger?

Who knows. . . 🙂

Do you have any pastimes or hobbies?

Well besides the obvious reading and writing, I enjoy cross-stitching, music(the playing and listening of) and blogging.

What is a book or movie that you fangirl over excessively?

Pride and Prejudice. I talk about that book too often. : D

What are some of your life’s goals/dreams (say as little or as much as you like…)?

I’d looooove to publish a book someday– that and read Les Miserables which counts as a life goal, because it will probably take a long time. (:

What is something you wished you were better at?

Self-motivation. And science. Science is not my favorite subject.

What character from a book or movie do you love?

Besides the characters I listed in my top ten list, I really like Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables.

What character from a book or movie do you hate?

I honestly can’t help feeling bad for him in some parts, but Uncle Andrew from The Magician’s Nephew is pretty nasty.

Have you ever cried when reading a book?

I realize this may make me look like a cold, heartless bookworm, but the honest answer is no.

Where would your dream vacation be?

Like Olivia wrote, Prince Edward Island or maybe I’d go for New Zealand.

My questions(which I’m trying to keep all book-oriented)–

1. Which was one of the first chapter books you remember reading?

2. Is there a book you’ve read which everybody else seemed to like but you didn’t?

3. Which is the longest book you’ve read?

4. Do you have a favorite quote from a book?

5. Would you rather read a book or write a blog post?

6. How many books(if any?) have you read that are worse than the movie?

7. Which book character do you relate to the best?

8. Do you watch movies based on books you haven’t read yet or do you not really care?

9. Which is the most boring book you’ve ever read(not including textbooks)?

10. Can you read and eat at the same time?

11. Which is your favorite place to read?

And moving on to the 2nd blog tag. . .

Do you have a favorite mug or teacup?
Unless thermos bottles count as mugs, not really.
Are you an adventurous eater?  (Do you try “strange” foods?)
Yes! Sushi is one of my favorites.
What fandoms are you into?
Lots– but I’ll try to keep it to the ones that are actual fandoms and don’t just consist of me.
Lord of the Rings. Chronicles of Narnia. Captain America. Les Mis(though I haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I love some of the songs). Beauty and the Beast.
What famous author/book do you not really care for?
Most of the popular books nowadays I don’t really care for, but particularly Divergent which you can see from one of my earlier posts.  (:
Which obscure author/book are you crazy about?
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. It’s kind of meant for younger kids, but I loved it.
What’s the oldest movie you’ve ever watched?
I honestly don’t know.
What did you have for breakfast today?
Bagels with butter and honey. Yummm.
When did you first see your favorite movie?
I think my favorite movie is Return of the King, which I believe I saw with my Dad a few months after turning 12.
Do you prefer fantasy or sci-fi?
Fantasy!! Though there’s a lot of fantasy out there I don’t care for.
What did you expect your blog to be like when you started it?
I’m not sure exactly. . . I’ve deleted most of my older posts, but originally it was more for posting updates on my life and family.
Has it changed?  If so, how?
Now I use it more for book/movies/writing stuff, which I honestly find more interesting, anyway.

And, as far as nominating goes, I’m nominating anyone who wants to do it. 😀 Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m reading Les Miserables, and it’s actually not very hard to read. I started in late May and I’m almost done . . . only about a hundred pages to go . . .

    1. Aw, that’s awesome! I’m planing to tackle Les Mis next summer. 🙂 Btw, I just figured out which blog is yours. Did you find my blog through Bekah’s?

    1. Oh, thank you!! I’ve been trying to find your blog for awhile because we seem to have lots in common, but WordPress only just now gave me your link. I have another blog I just started on blogger, so through that account, I’ll follow you. 🙂
