I Dare You – Book Tag

ITS BEEN SO LONG SINCE IVE DONE A TAG gah I’m sorry to everyone that have tagged me in posts I will catch up one day *nervous laughter*

3 people have tagged me in this so far so I thought I better move my ass and get back into book tags. Seriously I love book tags I’ve just been ignoring how many I have in my drafts hoping they’ll somehow write themselves while I take a nap.

Thank you to the lovely Bec @ Bec’s Books, Dani @ The Chronicles of Danielle, and Angel @ Angel Reads if you haven’t checked out their blogs yet you really should!

you must be honest
you must answer all the questions
you must tag at least 4 people

133266.jpg1. What book has been on your shelf the longest? It’s easily Four Past Midnight by Stephen King I actually stole this off my Mum when I moved out so I’ve had it for um 4 years going on 5… sorry Mum.

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next? My Current read is A Conjuring of Light by V.E Schwab and I’m at the last chapter BADSGAHHJWUOSANKDLUJ I don’t know how well I’m going to function once I finish, my last read was A Gathering of Shadows re-read, and my next read will be Anything but Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin.

177022853. What book did everyone like, but you hated?

Enders Game by Orson Scot Card which was a disappointment because I wanted to love it but alas I hated that books with all my heart. Also Rebel Belle sucked.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?

I WILL READ ALL MY BOOKS (oh wait I can’t lie can I? Shit) probably Four past midnight I mean I love King but I’m not sure how I feel about his short stories and well it’s been 5 years already XD

GoT.png5. What book are you saving for retirement?

I’m going to have to steal Bec’s answer and say Game of Throne because 1. The books are so big and I’ve already watched the show so it’s not much of a page turner when I know whats going to happen. and 2. THE SERIES MAY ACTUALLY BE FINISHED BY THE TIME IM RETIRED. Nothing annoys me more than a stalled series and George R.R Martin isn’t to be trusted.

6. Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?

Never first you evil wench, WHO READS IT FIRST. Why? Why spoil yourself that is just the opposite of what I want, I’ve done it by accident before when I’ve gone to look at the number of pages and read a word that spoiled me, it’s so sad.

7. Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?

Interesting if I liked the book, definitely never a waste of paper I mean what if your name was on it? It’s also really cool to see the Author thank people for bring endless cups of coffee to them and leaving them alone, I need someone to do this for me and maybe I’d have a first draft done by now.

157908948. Which book character would you switch places with?

Devi Morris definitely BUT I would have to have all her badass talents and her powered armor, man what I would do for some powered armor *heart eyes* Also if you’re looking for an awesome sci-fi *hint hint wink wink*

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)

Flowers in the attic and Heaven by Virginia Andrews have all the teenage memories for me and of course Twilight – basically all the cringe comes from teenage reader Casey (low key will always love Virginia Andrews though shes the fist Author I read every book from over and over again)

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

Hmm I don’t really have any books I’ve acquired in an interesting way, I have books from book swaps, second hand books, classics, stolen books from family members but that’s all pretty normal.

11. Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?

I give books away to my Mum all the time just so we can both read and discuss them together, I also lend books to one of my bestfriends and it can be hit of miss but I love hearing her thoughts on them.

12. Which book has been with you most places?

I’ll have to say Twilight, it’s been with me since it was released and I re-read it so many times as a teen, I still keep my battered copies on my bookshelf.

624354.jpg13. Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

I really enjoyed all my required reading, there were some that I didn’t “like” (more understand) when I read it alone but once I had read and discussed it with the teacher I always enjoyed it. Stasiland by Anna Funder is one of these.

14. Used or brand new?

Brand New! I love op shopping but I tend to come out with 10 books that I’ll never actually read just because it’s cheap. Plus there’s nothing as great as a perfect book with no dints or bent pages.

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

No, I do own a few that I’ve picked up second hand (see answer 14) but I’ve never read one. Should I?

16. Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?

Nope. I’m the worst with book to movie adaptations and extremely picky. I have a few like To Kill a Mocking Bird and Perks of Being a Wallflower that I really like but none that have ever surpassed the book.

1954785617. Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks included?

Who just reads cook books? Like yeah glance at it when you get it but to read it all the way through…Why? Anyway yes Simon Vs the Homosapian agenda is definitely a book you need Oreos for, what even is a friend Oreo and how do I get one in Australia? Also Harry Potter who doesn’t want a feast or a butterbeer?

18. Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?

My Mum, she doesn’t recommend my young adult but I’ll always take her Adult fiction and non fiction recs, she gave me my love for reading and knows what I like and don’t like.

2805259819. My question is: Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g., outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?

Black by Fleur Ferris this isn’t really outside of my comfort zone because I love Thrillers/mysteries BUT I usually can’t stand young adult thrillers because there either to plain and there’s not enough murder or the main character an idiot, thankfully this book is none of that.

  1. Ooh, I was thinking about doing this tag so now I have a valid excuse 😉 Thank you!

    I’ve had the accidental spoiler happen to me when checking page numbers too, haha. It’s the worst. I have no idea why anyone would willingly read the last page of a book first?? I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever read A Game of Thrones, but like I refuse to unhaul it just in case. I’ll probably use it for that answer too 😂

    1. I did it for Lady Midnight and was so bummed out, the spoiler was in the last line so I couldn’t help but see it 😦 People who read the last page are definitely some sort of evil XD My Partner always threatens me with it when I’m being annoying lmao

      I read the first 200 pages and just couldn’t be bothered to go on, I love the tv show though. Can’t wait to see your answers!


  2. Casey, you crack me up!

    “I WILL READ ALL MY BOOKS (oh wait I can’t lie can I? Shit) probably Four past midnight I mean I love King but I’m not sure how I feel about his short stories and well it’s been 5 years already ”

    At least you are honest! I’m with you on waiting to read GoT until ALL the books are out. I actually feel back for Martin though… people are just brutal saying that he better not die before finishing the series out… Can we give the guy a break? Think about the pressure he must be under?!? I’ve watched bits and pieces of the show with my husband, but since I don’t watch it regularly I never have any clue what is going on lol

    1. I absolutely love the show me and my partner basically have a count down for the next season, I didn’t hate the first book when I tried reading it but its really close to the show so I got a bit board from it. I’m hoping he does actually write the books before anything happens to him 0.0 I feel like he’s given up and just focused on the TV show now, there is a tonne of pressure on him though I wouldn’t like to have to speak to his publisher and let them know the books are pushed back another year :/

      1. Eh you can’t really blame him for focusing on the show… I’m sure the show brings him much more $$$ then the books… but from what I’ve heard the shows are already further than the books? I wonder if that’s why he seems to have lost motivation to write the books…

        Liked by 1 person

        1. Yep the books I think are up to 5 and the show is just about to release season 7 0.0 I think it would be hard to write a story that your already basically writing a screen play for I mean at what point does it turn into just transcripting the show

  3. I love this tag– your answers are so on point. When I retire, I want to re-read Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series. I imagine that retirement is just me and super long fantasy series with a cup of tea. Forever.

    Also, I am totally that person who reads cookbooks. I like learning about the cooking techniques and coming up with new ideas for how to make food. I often check them out from the library: Read it, make a few dishes, and review it to see if I want to add the cookbook to my own library. I love doing it. 🙂

    1. Can we just retire now because a hot drink and long fantasy series seems like heaven 🙂

      Really? I don’t think I’ve ever read a cookbook, I mean maybe in school and for my apprenticeship but I usually just read the recipe I’m making and flick through to see the pictures, most of my recipes come from online these days though so that’s probably a contributor too.


  4. Great post! I should really get onto r\doing this tag… Haha yes, I share your confusion at the cookbook question. The George R. R. Martin syndrome is one of the reasons why I haven’t yet read Name of the Wind even though I own the first two books. Simon is great 😉

    1. I just don’t think I’d be able to suffer not having the next book and not knowing when/if it was ever going to come out, I’m so glad i didn’t read this series from the beginning I would have been so mad at having to wait and wait for the next books esp with the TV series already going past the books :/
      This tag is so great and super quick to do I’d love to see your answers!

      1. Yeah, I know the feeling! I’m pretty sure Alex read the first book around release though! Poor her. I’m so excited for the TV series – Lin is my fav and I’m already super interested in the books (though I haven’t yet read)
        Will do! 💕
