Book Tag: Emotions in Colours

My girl Greyson, over at Greyson Reads, tagged me to do this original gem created by Cait @ Paper Fury, which was inspired by a couple of G’s other blog posts. It’s colours as emotions as related to books.

It’s like our very own booknerd version of Emotion-evoked Synesthesia. (Google it, it’s pretty cool.)

Of course, I will never experience Synesthesia because, I’ll be honest, I’m pretty dead on the inside. This tag could end up being exceptionally difficult for me, but I’ll usually try anything once – even emotions.

Once.

Book Tag: The Ultimate Book Tag – 25 Bookish Questions

IT’S FRIDAY!

Bonus for me: I’ve got Monday off work. I’m determined to make this weekend super productive for reading! It’s top priority.

I’d say last night was pretty productive for reading, as well, because I literally had no other choice. When I got home from work around 5PM, the power was out at my house, as well at 223 other houses. And we didn’t get electricity back until this morning! Joy-of-fucking-joys!

I felt like an Amish person – lighting candles, walking around in the dark, crying that we have no Wi-Fi (Amish people cry about that, right?)

As expressed by my 14-year-old stepkid: “I want to look at memes! This sucks!”

I hear you, junior.

Fave Five Friday: Favourite Book Series

I’m an unabashed book series lover. If a book is the first in a series, as opposed to a standalone, I’m 80% more likely to read it (I just pulled that percentage out of my ass, but it’s probably accurate.)

With that in mind, I have no idea how I’m going to whittle down my favourite series to just my top five, but at the very least an attempt will be made and I’m proud of myself for that.

This post is hosted by Sheri @ TV Addicted Bookworm. She seems nice, check her out.

Without further ado, and in no particular order…actually in a very specific order…here are my choices. Trust me when I say, this was agonizing in the most bookish way.

Book Tag: Currently Reading Edition!

I came across this Currently Reading book tag somewhere and it looked fun. I can’t remember where I saw it, and I’m too lazy to find out. I’m just being honest. Laziness is a terrible motivator that I am flush with. I don’t live in an apartment that smells of rich mahogany though…

Let’s play, shall we?!

Book Tag: Rapid Fire Questions

I feel like this is a bit of a Rorschach Test for us Booknerds. Answer fast with the first thing that comes to mind!

This could be dangerous for me – you never know where my mind will land. Could be stupid, could be unexpectedly erotic, could be inappropriate. Just prepare yourselves.

I, too, am dressed as Khaleesi while writing this. I’m the Mother of Furdragons, afterall.

Allow us tat jin! (That’s Dothraki for let’s do this…)

Booknerd Wednesday: My Real Life Creepy Story & Mystery Writing Exercise

I grabbed this off of Goodreads and I think we have to do it for obvious reasons that are so obvious I’m not even going to list them.

But, this would be a kind of short post if it was all we did, so I figure let’s turn it into a bit of a creative writing exercise! And why not? We’re all either in love with novels or secretly wishing to write one, or both!

This is Booknerd Wednesday – we can do whatever the hell we want around here, like we’re guests on the Maury show.

So, Step One: Find the title of your mystery bestseller…

Book Tag: Twenty Questions!

Hey Nerds! I’ve got a review I should be writing, but this seemed like more fun because goddamnit I read another Patterson novel and I don’t know why I do that to myself!

I knowwwww so many people like him, but I think he’s truly shit and we are now arch nemeses.

So, let’s do this first before I unleash my reader-anger onto that overproducing book machine. (These questions came from somewhere floating around on Goodreads.)

Book Tag: Anything But Books!

I haven’t done one of these in a while…and it figures the first one I’m going to do has literally nothing to do with books!

I’m just contrary that way, I suppose.

So, really this is just a quick tag to talk about myself. Do I like to get high and watch Scooby Doo? Yes! Do I know how to immigrate someone into Canada? Yes, again!

I have so many layers. My plot thickens…

Ugh, no. Forget I said that. Just read on for a few tidbits about me and forget about my pot or how thick it is.

Book Tag: One Lovely Blog Award

My Australian book buddy Greyson Reads tagged me for this one. She said I was “lovely and hilarious”, and obviously flattery works really well on me! Thanks, G!

Ok, here we go. Don’t get weirded out and leave me once you know me better.

Book Tag: Seven Deadly Sins

Hands up if you love the movie Se7en!

Well, it’s one of my favourite movies of all time (naturally), and in honour of that for literally no reason, it’s time for a new round of book tag. This time the Seven Deadly Sins edition!

*the crowd goes wild*

Jeez, guys. Calm down.
