Rules


 

PURR – AS CATS DO THIS WHEN THEY’RE HAPPY OR RELAXED, WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT MAKES YOU HAPPIEST OR RELAXED?

Image result for fangirl

A book that makes me happy? Definitely Fangirl! I read this book last year and I can still remember everything that has happened in it! (Maybe not every single little detail…But still…)


SLEEP – WHAT IS A BOOK THAT PUT YOU TO SLEEP OR WAS JUST BORING? 

Image result for The coldest girl in coldtown and The knife of never letting go

I heard mixed reviews about ‘The Coldest Girl In Coldtown’ by Holly Black. Either people die-hard love this book or they dislike this book..like a lot. So, I decided to pick this book up from the bookstore because the synopsis sounded fantastic. But, I ended up DNF-ing it because the characters and the story itself did not really catch any of my attention, so..yes. I DNFed it. 


TWITCH WHILE DREAMING – HAVE YOU EVER DREAMT OF A BOOK YOU READ?

Image result

I have dreamt about this book in the past. I dreamt of Karou, Akiva and Zuzana. I was in a war with them at both of my sides and they were speaking to each other until I woke up and realized that it was all just a dream… {How unfortunate, I wish it could last forever}


SEEMS TO PLAY NICE…UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT – WHICH BOOK HAD THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST?

Image result

Oh my gosh~ This book..People.. Those plot twists. I cannot even… Okay. Yep. I am not going to spoil anything but please read Red Queen first before reading Glass Sword because these books are fabulous!


CUDDLES – WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD YOU GIVE A HUG TO?

Image result

I would totally give my hugs to Starr and her family members. Because of all the things they have been through. {Read this book! I highly recommend you to read it! Here’s my review for this book: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas}


CATNIP – WHAT’S A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAVE WARM AND FUZZY FEELS?

Image result

One of my all-time favorite books in the ‘I am number four’ Series! Marina. Oh my goodness. Marina!!! This book gave me the feels and it killed me to see Marina {Spoiler} 


CAT BREEDS – WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?

I am going to follow Twinbookmarks‘s idea of choosing a genre(s) instead of favorite books. So, here goes my favorite genres list:

  • Young Adult
  • High Fantasy/Urban Fantasy/Low Fantasy
  • Contemporary Romance/Contemporary Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Science Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Realistic Contemporary Fiction

Image result for favorite genres books gif


THE VET’S OFFICE – YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK:

Image result

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love Patrick’s other works. But, this book..Or rather trilogy did not work for me! I am so sorry, but I really didn’t like this book/trilogy.


BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T LEAST FAVORITE CLICHE:

Related image

All wars or other big fights should end in a one-on-one combat. WHY!? This cliché is overdone and I really didn’t like it.


FINAL QUESTION: THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX – MOST UNDERRATED BOOK SERIES:

Image result

*Note: This is a book, not a book series.* This book is so underrated! Marcus Sedgwick’s writing style for this book was beautiful and the characters in it were fabulous but this book is underrated! I will be linking my review for ‘The Ghost Of Heaven’ here: The Ghost Of Heaven By Marcus Sedgwick


This is the end of the ‘What Cats Do’ book tag! I am not going to tag anyone, but if you would like to do this tag, feel free to do it! Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this article and follow me via email/wordpress account to get notifications when I upload a new article! Bye!

Coffee Book Tag

Hey Guys! I will be doing the ‘Coffee Book Tag’ today! I am not really a “Coffee-Drinker”, but, I really want to try out this tag and I would probably make a cup of coffee for myself later.

BLACK: NAME A SERIES THAT’S TOUGH TO GET INTO BUT HAS HARDCORE FANS.

Image result for lord of the rings book set

Lord of the Rings is one of the hardest book series to get into- at least, to me. Unlike The Hobbit series which I loved, some of the scenes in the Lord of the Rings series are kind of boring, in my personal opinion. 

PEPPERMINT MOCHA: NAME A BOOK THAT GETS MORE POPULAR DURING THE WINTER OR A FESTIVE TIME OF YEAR.

Image result for let it snow john green

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I find that Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle gets more popularity during the festive time of the year, because of the title, you know? SNOW.

HOT CHOCOLATE: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S BOOK?

Image result for geronimo stilton book cover

When I was younger, Geronimo Stilton was one of my all time favourite author and books. I believe that many children around the world love this author and his works!

DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO: NAME A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM START TO FINISH.

 

Image result for 8490112

Daughter Of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor definitely kept me on the edge of my seat from the start to finish.

(All the books that was written by Laini Taylor kept me on the edge of my seat because her books/stories are fabulous!) 

And please read the ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ trilogy if you have yet to read it.

Image result for love children books gif

STARBUCKS: NAME A BOOK YOU SEE EVERYWHERE.

Image result for hunger games series

Although this trilogy has been around for seven years, it is still pretty popular and there are still people who rave about it. For example, me.
