A to Z Bookish Survey

I’ve seen couple booktubers to do this tag and decided to do it myself because it seemed so much fun. I don’t know the creator of this tag but if you know the creator tell me down on the comments! Most of the photos in this post again are from time at Japan. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Author you’ve read the most books from:

David & Leigh Eddings. I read almost everything by them when I was younger.

Best Sequel Ever:

The Hero of Ages. This might be because I have still a book hangover for it.

Currently Reading:

Just One Day by Gayle Forman.

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Tea or water. I also sometimes drink cider but water and tea are the one drinks that I mostly have while reading something.

E-reader or Physical Book?

Physical book. I have an e-reader too but there’s something about having the book in your hands, how it feels and smells.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

I didn’t date that much at high school but I would have loved to date Elend from the Mistborn trilogy. I wanted to be with someone who was as much into books as I am. Also if Cath from Fangirl liked girls I would have liked to date her.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGlad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Fahrenheit 451. It was one of those books that we had to read for the school and everybody knows how it feels when you are made to read something, right? I wasn’t at all excited about this, but then I started it and fell in love. It’s still one of my favorite classics.

Hidden Gem Book:

The Sweet Scent of Love by Suzanne McLeod. This is a paranormal book that I haven’t heard that much people talking about but I loved it! I haven’t finished the series yet, but I’m thinking of doing it 2015.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

When I started bookblogging and participating in the book community. I had been stalking the bloggers and vloggers for a long time but didn’t feel comfortable on taking part in it. Finally couple months ago, I decided to create this blog and slowly start to take part in the community. I already have so many awesome followers and I want to thank you all, who have commented, liked and read my posts because it makes me glad every time to be here when I see that happened.

Just Finished:

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence. Liked this, going to post soonish a review for it.

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Erotica. I just feel that they are writers own fantasies and I don’t want to read those.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

I’m going to say The Redemption of Althalus by David and Leigh Eddings, because before I think it’s the longest book I currently have on my selves. 😀

Major book hangover because of:

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson. It just left me feeling all these feelings and I still feel little bit hangover by it.

1 but I really need to buy more.

Have you done the A to Z Bookish Survey? I tag everyone that reads this to do it. 😉 If you do it, share it down on the comments, I would love to read your answers to this.

Fantasy Book Tag

I was browsing through booktube videos and came across this tag. I decided to do it here because fantasy is my favorite genre and I think I have read more fantasy books than any other genre. This tag was created by JHT-books. All the pictures in this post are from my time in Japan. Hope you like them! I have been thinking that I could write post(s) about my time in Japan, would that be interesting to anyone to read?

1. What is the longest fantasy series that you have ever read? 

Belgariad-series and the sequel series The Malloreon by David Eddings. They consist of five books each and were actually first fantasy series that I read. I fell in love with them and with fantasy as a genre.

2. Favorite fantastical setting or world. 

Pern or Middle Earth or Harry Potter’s world… There’s too many choices really, I would love to visit so many places that I have read about.

3. Besides Harry Potter, what is your favorite fantasy book/series?

The choices, choices… It’s either A Song of Ice and Fire-series by George R. R. Martin or Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea-series.

4. What fantasy book do you wish was more popular? 

Assassin’s Apprentice. It’s one of my favorite books/series and I don’t see many people talking about it. She’s a great writer and I love all of her series that I have read. This book also was first of the books that were from assassins point of view and I felt it to be really refreshing at the time.

5. Your favorite villain.

Lord Voldemort. Mostly because I couldn’t really remember any other villains at the moment :D. When I read the Harry Potter books first time Lord Voldemort just felt really scary and I still get shivers when I read about him.

6.What’s the first fantasy book you have ever read?

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. It was a bookclub pick and I tried to read it and hated it. It felt like nobody read it before releasing, there were so many mistakes and everything in it just felt so irritating.

7. Your favorite Harry Potter book. 

The Prisoner of Azkaban definitely. It has been my favorite from the first time I ever read it, because it doesn’t feel as light as the first two books but still isn’t as dark the latter books. It’s my comfort book that I read when I need something familiar. Also hippogriffs <3.

8. What is your favorite mythical creature?

Dragons! Every dragon ever! I just can’t get enough of them. When I was smaller I used to imagine that I had my own pet dragon.

9. Favorite female protagonist from a fantasy book?

Vin from Mistborn series or Polgara from Belgarian Universe. They are just so strong and in the Polgara the Sorceress you can read how she grows up and she was my favorite female protagonist when I was younger. I wanted to become just like her, kind and gentle and fierce and beautiful. I actually dreamed that I could have dark hair with one white curl like her.

10. Favorite male protagonist?

This is hard. There’s so many great fantasy series that have male protagonists. I have say either Kvothe from Kingkiller series or Fitz from the Farseer-series. I feel so nostalgic when I think about Fitz because I read it when I was teenager and loved him but right now Kingkiller-series is one of my favorites and I like Kvothe so much!
