Alice in Wonderland Tag/Tea Party Blog Tag10:28 AM
Like they always do, the Notebook Sisters have brought us another delicious tag that I had to participate in. Hope you enjoy! And go check out their take on the tag here and the rules and linky thing here (you only have a little over a day to join in :P).
1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?
2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you've ever read.
Hmm, this is hard. Unlike some people, not every book I read has a psychotic human. ;) *cough* Cait *cough* I'm literally looking blankly around my room trying to come up with something.
Okay, 1) Warner from Shatter Me, basically he was such a combination of desperate and infatuated and cruel-ness that hm yeah *backs away slowly*. 2) Barrington Whelk [aka crazy young teacher guy from The Raven Boys. Yeah, I didn't remember him by name either]. What to say? Whelk was the definition of not-right-in-the-head. His whole thought process just sickened me. Bad Whelk. 3) Soren, the dude in Under the Never Sky that somehow had a tan when nobody else did. He was just brutish. And viciously cruel for the sake of being cruel.
I think it's obvious I'm thinking about crazy like lunatic-crazy.
3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?
Oh my gosh-- Crater and Crescent by Homer Hickam. The premise was good and even interesting but I couldn't stand most of the characters. I think I'm starting to breathe hard just thinking about it.
4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you've been "late" to pick them up?
Countless. I mean, seriously, I'm not very good at keeping up with the hype. I haven't read the Twilight series or Harry Potter series. I haven't read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series yet (but I have the first book in my room waiting), the Grisha series (Shadow & Bone, etc.)...hm, let me think.
Splintered series by A. G. Howard, anything by John Green, anything by Rainbow Rowell, etc. etc. I could go on, at the risk of making a few people angry. ;)
5. Caterpillar: What's the most confusing book you've read?
As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott. Nothing made sense, nothing connected. I even checked to see if I had mistakenly borrowed a sequel and not the first book. It was that bad. I DNF'd it.
6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep?
Valley of Dreams by Lauraine Snelling. There was a lot of description and the majority of the book described a long trip across the lands of America by wagon. It might have been interesting if I liked the characters more or if something had happened, but nothing did. No. The food descriptions were good though.
7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. Because Jace is hilarious. Let me give you a sampling:
8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?
As in, sort of like romantically? Or..like kindred spirits? Or someone I was deeply empathetic with? I'm making this too complicated aren't I. Okay.
Jem and Will from The Infernal Devices (everybody in that series needs a gigantic hug, seriously). NO. DO NOT TELL ME TO PICK WHICH ONE I WANT TO GO WITH TESSA. NO.
Update: I just finished reading The Clockwork Princess. My heart cannot go on.
9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you've read this year?
Romeo from Juliet Immortal. I think he's the best I've read this year because it was extremely hard to tell whether he was all evil or if he had a little good in him. I hated him. But then I also empathized and felt sorry for him. It was extremely annoying.
10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What's the latest book/series/author that's completely swallowed your interest?
I've gotten back into the shadowhunter world which means all things Cassandra Clare. Woop! I love the characters. And the world. And the shadowhunter gear. Basically everything.
