Pokemon Go Book Tag

I saw this floating around the blogosphere and tracked it back to its origins at Read at Midnight. I’m not going to tag anyone because I’m coming into this rather late-ish and I don’t know who’s already done it. But feel free to participate if you haven’t already. The graphics can be found on the original post.

I’ve been reading since my earliest memories and don’t recall any of my very first books. In elementary school, however, I couldn’t get enough of Beverly Cleary, Judy Blume, and Nancy Drew books. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret had such a big influence on me, even now as an adult.

I’ve read this book so many times. In middle school, high school, and for both my undergrad and graduate school classes. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. I love this book so much that I did an in depth study of it for my last class. I’ve probably written at least three different papers on this book.

I can’t think of any book that I lost interest in because of its popularity. I can think of some books that I didn’t read because of hearing about them constantly like anything by John Green, Jojo Moyes, or Liane Moriarty. But I never had any interest in his books to begin with. By the way, this graphic should’ve had the rattata’s instead of the zubats. Those freaking rats are everywhere.

Hmm. This for this one, I guess I would say just about any romance that I’ve ever read that I liked. I like romances for their ease of reading and for the escapism aspect, but let’s face it. They’re basically all the same.

There aren’t any series I haven’t started because of how large it is. The bigger, the better I’m thinking.

So, this one means because it creeped me out and not just because I couldn’t put it down. Honestly, I don’t read a lot of thriller/suspense/horror-type books. I don’t read Stephen King anymore and most books in this genre(s) are cheesy. Please, if you know of one that is well-written, moves at a good pace, and creeped the hell out you, feel free to leave a comment with a rec.

I have no answer for this.

Any of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books. I zip right through these, usually in one sitting because I can’t put them down. They’re face-paced, hilarious, feel-good reads.

pokemon-tag09-eevee

This is a hard one. I can’t think of any series of books that I’ve read that even had spinoffs except for Harry Potter and I refuse to read any of those. I guess J.D. Robb’s In Death series could count because she’s written quite a few novellas for this series and I’ve read most of them. Honestly though, I didn’t really like any of them. Shortened versions of my favorite books are more frustrating than enjoyable.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the Hunger Games. I didn’t think it’d be my cup of tea. From that, I was definitely shocked that I liked the Divergent series at all because everyone said it was a knockoff of Hunger Games. Not so. I liked and enjoyed both series.

pokemon-tag12-legendary

Oh goodness. I’m not really sure here.

There aren’t any collector’s editions of books I wish that I owned. There are, however, first editions of books that I wish I had. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, A Moveable Feast, Lord of the Flies, and a few others.

Ugh! This tag should be easier! I can’t think of anything modern, but I’ve been wanting to read A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I don’t really have auto-buy authors so much as I have auto-buy series. Like Stephanie Plum and In Death. I guess you could say Alison Weir though.

pokemon-tag13-server-down

This is an easy one!! Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. We, the fans, wait FORever for each book to be released. FORever!! They’re always worth the wait and they’re always long books, but I still read them in a couple days, lol. Seriously though, I think Gabaldon takes the longest of any authors for whom I am a fan, to write books.
