What Cats Do Book Tag!
Holly, over at Nut Free Nerd, did the What Cats Do book tag a while back, and it looked like so much fun! For those of you that don’t know, I’m a huge animal lover, and actually own 4 cats. So, I just had to do this tag! I’ve included some pictures of my cats, too, because they’re too cute!
Purr: As cats do this when they’re happy or relaxed, what is the book that makes you happiest or relaxed?
I’d have to go with Anne of Green Gables. As many of you know by now, it’s one of my favorite books, and it just makes me so happy. It’s a very character driven novel, and just such a relaxing book.
Sleep: What is a book that put you to sleep or was just boring?
It pains me to say it, because I loved the rest of the books in the series, but The Kill Order by James Dashner was just so meh. I didn’t even know it was possible for a book that had so much action to be so boring.
Twitch while dreaming: Have you ever dreamt of a book you read?
I know I’ve dreamt of several books that I’ve been reading, but I think I’ve dreamed the most about being in Nancy Drew mysteries. When I was younger, I remember dreaming about them all the time!
Seems to play nice…until the claws are out!: Which book had the biggest plot twist(s)?
A certain plot twist in Insurgent had me s h o o k. I remember I was reading it while I was babysitting (It was nighttime and the kids were already asleep, lol, I promise I’m a responsible babysitter), and I was so surprised and had nobody to talk about it to that I had to tell their dog. 😂
Cuddles: Which book character would you give a hug to?
I think Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief could really use a hug. The Book Thief is another of my favorite books, and the things that Liesel goes through just makes me want to hug her, support her, and be there for her.
Catnip: What’s a book that made you have warm and fuzzy feels?
There’s several books I could have chosen for this, but I’m going to go with What Light by Jay Asher. It’s just a really nice story, it’s very Christmas-y, and it’s very heartwarming! It’s one of those books that, by the time you turn the last page, you’re smiling, and just feeling emotional and happy.
Cat breeds: Your favorite book(s)?
Well, I’ve already listed 2: Anne of Green Gables and The Book Thief. I also love Matilda by Roald Dahl, the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn, and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, just to name a few.
Getting the cat: How did you find your favorite book(s)?
Anne of Green Gables: I discovered Anne when one of my assigned reading books was Anne of Green Gables. I really adored the book, and always planned on reading the rest of the series, but being 10 years old, I got distracted and kind of forgot. I rediscovered Anne in 2012, after I got my first Nook. They had 6 of the books in a bind-up for $0.99, and I thought that was amazing. So, I reread Anne, and fell completely back in love with the book and characters, and it’s been that way ever since.
The Book Thief: This was a book that I had had on my TBR for quite some time. My grandma finally gave it to me for Christmas, and so I read it, and it quickly became a favorite.
Matilda: I have always loved the movie for Matilda for as long as I can remember. So, when I was, I think 8 or 9, my grandparents gave me the book for my birthday, and it’s been a favorite ever since.
Christy Miller: The Christy Miller books were actually my sister’s. I started reading them when I was the same age as Christy in the first book, 14, and I really loved them. My older sister, who isn’t really a reader, knew how much I loved them, so she just let me take her books.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: I saw this book at the library, and the cover was so creepy and intriguing, that I decided to read it for Halloween one year. The book was so different and mysterious, and I ended up really, really loving the story.
Being in places they shouldn’t: Least favorite cliché?
I’m going to have to go with love triangles. At one time, I thought they were really exciting (i.e. when I read the Twilight Saga back in 2009 #TeamEdward), but now they’re just so over done, and most of them aren’t even done well. The only way I don’t mind a love triangle, is if it is done extremely well, and that very, very rarely happens.
The good old cardboard box: Most underrated book series?
I have to say the Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore. I read this series last year, and it was so good! There was action, mystery, ballet, and romance (and no love triangle!) – pretty much everything I love in a book. So few people have read this series, and it’s one of those book series that I just want to tell everyone about!
I hope you enjoyed reading this tag, because I had so much fun doing it! I’d love to hear your answers!
