I saw this post over on Icebreaker694’s blog and thought I’d give it a try since I looooove cats and the questions on this were great! Thanks to Kate at meltingpotsandothercalamities for creating this tag! If you do this tag, be sure to tag her in this as those are the rules!
PURR- What is the book that makes you happiest or relaxed?
Squire (third book in the Protector of the Small series) by Tamora Pierce and Harry Potter #1 and #3.
SLEEP- What is a book that put you to sleep or was just boring?
I read a handful of these recently, they include: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, A Wizard of Mars by Diane Duane, Saga by Conor Kostick and The Magicians by Lev Grossman. There are more, but I’m going to stop there.
TWITCH WHILE DREAMING- A book you dreamt about?
Dream about owning: all the new, unreleased books by Tamora Pierce
Dream about visiting: Hogwarts or Tortall
Actually dream about: none as far as I know, though a case could be made for Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire, because all that takes is crossing a door….
SEEMS TO PLAY NICE…UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT- Which book had the biggest plot twist?
The one the threw me the most that I was not expecting happened in Trickster’s Queen by Tamora Pierce. Also Lupin being a warewolf.
CUDDLES- Which book character would you give a hug to?
Basically all the animal characters ever. Also the Darkings.
CATNIP- What’s a book that made you have warm and fuzzy feels?
There are many. Most of them written by Tamora Pierce. Do I sound like a broken record yet? Also Harry Potter #1 and #3.
CAT BREEDS- What are your favourite books?
GETTING THE CAT- How did you find your favourite books?
A Librarian introduced my to Tamora Pierce when I was about 8 years old. Then I was introduced to my next favourite author when I asked for a recommendation for books similar to hers on an online forum when I was 18. Other childhood favourites were blurbed by TP and then Booktube has given me a few good recommendations recently. Funny how that works out since I’m terrible for actually reading and liking hyped and recommended books to the point where I almost didn’t read the Tamora Pierce book from the librarian, the once the was basically my childhood.
THE VET’S OFFICE- Your least favourite book
I had some winners last year for least favourite books. Most of these were books I read for school like Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger and Fifth Business by Roberson Davies. There were some others that were boring but I didn’t hate. One that I HATED was Spy Glass by Maria V Snyder.
BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T- Least favourite clichÉ
There are a lot but bland female main characters with the depth of paper is one.
THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX- Most underrated book series
In this age of discussion about male privilege and badass female leads, I never understood why Tamora Pierce’s Protector of the Small series isn’t more popular.
