Book Fangirling Blog Award

Blog Award, Books, Tag

Hello my lovely friends! I’m so excited to share with you that I have been tagged by Beth (check out her delightful blog at Reading Every Night) for the Book Fangirling Blog Award. Thank you Beth for this wonderful nomination! Although I fangirl over certain books, it’s more common to find me in a sort of daze after a really good book. Once that period of time is over, however, you’ll find me talking nonstop about the amazing book I just read!

Beth’s Questions

1. The three main characters from the last three books you read are your partners in the zombie apocalypse. Who are they and do you think you’d survive the outbreak?

The last three books I’ve read are Vicious by V.E Schwab (my review here), The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillipp Sendker (review here) and The End of Everything by Megan Abbott. Honestly, if Victor from Vicious were by my side, I wouldn’t have any qualms about a zombie apocalypse. But the remaining two characters leave something to be desired. Julia in The Art of Hearing Heartbeats is a bit weak, and is the average young adult that lives in New York. If Julia’s father, Tin Win, on the other hand were to join, I’d be more than happy to let him in my posse. Tin Win has the ability to hear the heartbeats of others, and is constantly very poised, calm and confident. Lizzie from The End of Everything is the typical teen who doesn’t do much within the book action-wise. I’d have to say, I’d probably be the first to perish in the zombie apocalypse.

2. If you could take one thing, be it a place, an event, a character, an object, out of any book and make it real what would you pick?

Narnia, this series was a childhood favorite, and to imagine another world I could escape to just in my wardrobe, would be amazing. Plus all the characters within that world seem magical and beautiful, and even till today, that place has such a strong hold on me!

3. The world is ending and you have just enough time to read one book, what would you choose and why?

Β This is definitely a hard one. I feel as if at that point, I’d frantically be finding my friends and families how much I love them, not reading a book… But I’d definitely want to reread Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. I know this is a children’s picture book, but it was read to me as a child, and I cherish the memories that follow.

4. What is one thing you wish there was more of in the world?

Forgiveness, so many of the world’s problems seems to hinge on grudges, bitterness and unresolved problems. I believe that it is possible for us to live with more love, happiness and joy when everyone is able to put down their differences, forgive and move on with life. Imagine how many world problems would be solved when disputes are resolved and everyone is able to make decisions without bitterness and resentment.

5. If you could have any superpower what would you choose, and what would be your origin story?

The superpower I would choose would be mind-manipulation. This way I can convince others to do things for me, although I do believe this to be the most dangerous superpower out there.Although I’m not sure what my origin story would be, I’d definitely want to not know about my power until one day when I realize something’s wrong with me. Almost like a coming of age story, and then I have to battle with the moral implications of using my power.

  1. I loved reading your post for this, and your answers to my questions as well! πŸ˜€ God Victor would be a great person to have during the zombie apocalypse, I can’t really say for the other two because I haven’t read those books, but I would be the first to die if the zombies ever rose up as well!
    God I’d love to be able to visit Narnia (I actually have a whole list of fantasy places I’d love to visit, Narnia is near the top) and mind manipulation sounds like an amazing power as well! Great choices πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks! I have to admit that I used to hide in my closet and pretend that I had been transported to Narnia. It really was a place I wanted to go. Thanks so much for your comment πŸ™‚

      1. I probably did something like that when I was younger as well, imagine I’d been able to find Narnia in the back of my wardrobe! πŸ˜€
        Narnia, Hogwarts, Wonderland…There are so many places I wanted to go when I was child, still do actually! πŸ™‚

  2. Victor would be an awesome partner in a zombie apocalypse! I feel like anyone from that book would be, because they all have a bit of an edge to them. I, for one, would be a terrible partner in any survival situation haha
    Thanks so much for nominating me!! ❀

  3. Victor would be GREAT to have in a zombie apocalypse… Eli is less useful I feel, haha. I would also love Serena but I wonder if she can control zombies, or are her abilities limited to only humans? So many questions! I actually would love to see this written as a fanfiction or something.

    And yes to #5 – I would love that too. LOVE THAT. But I suppose I want it to be… selective? Like I can choose when to turn it on and when to turn it off, kinda like Victor’s.

    Thanks for the tag!

    1. Agreed, Eli would be the only one to survive because he can’t die! And same, if the premise is that zombies have no brains, then I doubt they would be able to.. Right? Not really sure how zombies work to be honest… And agreed! That would be awesome.
      I think that it’s so important to be able to control your power. In fact, normally that’s one of the greatest problems superheroes face. You’re very welcome πŸ™‚

      1. Not sure how zombies work either… I’ve never been a huge fan, though I do enjoy SOME zombie ideas. πŸ˜›

        I know! One of my favourite superheroes is Quiksilver from X-Men and I heard in the comics he’s just fast ALL THE TIME, which sucks for him because everyone feels super slow. #tangent

  4. Mind manipulation is definitely a dangerous power, so it mused be used responsibly!

    Narnia will forever hold a special place in my heart. It was the first fantasy story I ever read and it changed my life, basically. It’s the whole reason I fell in love with Fantasy as a genre.

    Congrats on the award! And beautiful pic of your Potter swag πŸ™‚
    Is that a 3DS I see? What game are you playing or played last?

    1. Right? It would leave people helpless and without a will, which is very terrifying to think about. And to not know you’re being manipulated!
      Narnia is truly a series that everyone should read, it really helped expand my imagination!
      Thank you so much πŸ™‚ Hmmm, I’m not very sure if it is or not, that’s just the button they wanted us to post :p

  5. Wow- that was a really interesting first question- and I agree that Victor would be a great person to have in a zombie apocalypse. Thanks so much for the tag- I’m looking forward to answering your questions πŸ™‚
