I am a horrible book blogger + the Blogger Aesthetic Award/Tag!

Blogger Aesthetic Tag

So, yes, I am a horrible book blogger. Why? Because I have been reading, but I have not been reviewing, and that is just blasphemous. My mind does not seem to want to write at all. I’ll sit in front of the screen, watch the cursor for hours, and then I’ll open up a new tab and watch some YouTube videos. I can’t even do tags because my mind is absolutely empty. It’s worse than empty. It’s a black hole.

However, I need to do something, and I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a long time, but I also wanted to be nominated. Unfortunately, I am not very good at self-control. Heh. Oh well.


The Rules:

  1. Collect any number of images that you feel represent you as a person—your personality, aspirations, favorite things, anything at all that makes you, you.
  2. Put your chosen images together into a collage of whatever size and shape you find pleasing.
  3. Share your masterpiece with everyone, in all the places.
  4. Maybe nominate other bloggers as a way to tell them, “Hey, you, I think you’re awesome, and we should celebrate that awesomeness.”
  5. Share these rules (and maybe the below tips, if you’re feeling helpful).

Nobody tagged me, of course, but I did first discover this tag over at Delphine’s Babble on Some Good Reads, so it’s only suiting that I mention her. 😀


My Aesthetic


So, yes, this is my aesthetic. ;_;

As my blog foretells, I am very attracted to pastel pink. (Don’t tell my younger self this – she might explode.) I’m also fond of blues and black and white, and I’m always relaxed by the sound of the water. I included the piano because even though I don’t play very well, I love to play and I love listening to piano sonatas. Books, of course, are a very big part of my aesthetic, as is Japan. The quotes are meant to illustrate feminism, my inclination toward intellectual superiority above all things (because I love being a smartass), and also my tendency to be a bit of an airhead. 😅

This was a lot of fun! It says to tag people, but since I wasn’t tagged, I’m going to leave this open for anyone who wants to do it. 😀

Bye everyone~. I’ll be back soon, ready or not.

The Would You Rather Book Tag!

The Would You RatherBook Tag


I have not posted anything for a week and a half. I am terrible. Please forgive me.

This is mostly due to the fact that I pick up and DNF books really, really easily. If it doesn’t grab my attention right away – if I find myself glancing at my TBR pile with longing – that’s almost a given that it’s done for.

I stole this from icebreaker694 – with permission, this time! – not only because it sounded interesting, but because I haven’t done a tag in a while. I have others to do, but let’s not think about that.

I also chose to do her question, as well as add my own! 😀

Let us begin!


Have an unlimited money for Ebooks, or a 5,000 dollar B&N giftcard?

This one is a no-brainer for me. Really. I almost never read Ebooks, so I would totally go with the B&N gift card. (And probably rent a truck, while I was at it.)


Meet any deceased poet, or J.K. Rowling?

DUDE.

GIVE ME MY DEAD POETS.


Write the world’s most famous book, or visit the world of your favorite book for one day?

I definitely want to be a famous author someday, but I don’t want to write one famous book and have that be all that I’m known for. I’d rather have a series of exceptional or well-received books instead. So, yeah. Drop me into Cabeswater any time, any day.


Choose ______ or ______ ? (Insert characters from your favorite fictional love triangle.)

I think the only love triangle that I really like is the one in Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series, which is between Ash and Puck. I know everybody loves Puck, but in terms of love interests, I vote for Ash. Kagawa’s attempt to create a romance between Meghan and Puck in The Iron Daughter felt really forced.


Experience Hogwarts in a very realistic and accurate virtual reality, or travel around the world for a year, at no cost.

Travel around the world. I’ve always wanted to, and as much as I love Hogwarts, there are so many places that I want to go.


Icebreaker694’s question: Be a character nobody likes/looks up to, or a character no one minds, but isn’t important, and doesn’t show up a lot.

Okay, this one is the hardest one in the whole batch. :I I think I would prefer the former, because I’d rather be infamous than have no one remember me at all.


My question: Have your favorite character be real, or live in the fictional character’s world?

For me, I’d much rather live in the fictional world. Why would I want to take them into my world? Who cares that I’ll probably die in ten seconds in theirs? It would be the best ten seconds of my life.


I’m done~.

I TAG EVERYBODY because I always feel like I’m annoying people when I tag them.

See you next time! I’ll try to be more active. I’ll give myself a kick in the ass.

For now, I will bless you with this angel.

Goodbye~.

The Book Aesthetics Tag!

The Book AestheticTag (1)

Rules

  • Thank whoever nominated you (maybe you’re bitter that you have another tag to do on top of the billions you already need to do (#relatable), still though. Someone thought of you. Be thankful. At least pretend to be.)
  • Credit the creator of this tag; Michelle at The Writing Hufflepuff.
  • There’s no limit of how many aesthetics you can make for a question, but think of your poor readers.
  • Make your own aesthetics, please don’t steal them from someone else. Also what’s the fun in that?

I was bored, and I felt like changing my pace a bit, and so I decided to do the Book Aesthetics Tag!

I really wanted to do the Blogger Aesthetic tag/award but I thought that I should probably wait to be tagged for that one. ;;

A warning in advance: This is my first, and I mean my very first time creating aesthetic boards, so I’m sorry if these aren’t up to snuff. :I

Also, I own nothing. I found most of these pictures on Pinterest, and the rest I found on Google.

Favourite book of the year

Hate List, by Jennifer Brown

I have quite a few books that would fit the “favorite of the year” description, but I decided to go with Hate List because I feel like it’s the most generalized out there. It really impressed me with its empathy and realistic characters, and it’s important to understanding the psychology behind school shootings.


Character you relate to a lot

Simon from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli

Honestly, there wasn’t anybody else. Even though Simon and I aren’t exactly alike (though he is the one that introduced me to Elliott Smith <3), I relate to him on a spiritual level. We have the same personality, I think, though he’s more confident in himself.


A character you look up to

Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen

I was pleasantly surprised with Pride and Prejudice and I loved Elizabeth on the spot. She’s smart, knows who she is, and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do, even if it’s what’s accepted by society. She’s not perfect, as seen by her initial prejudice toward Mr. Darcy, but she’s still the kind of woman I hope to grow up to be.


An underrated gem 

What Angels Fear, by C.S. Harris

I loved What Angels Fear and was surprised when I found out that it wasn’t as popular as I thought it would be. It’s a really invigorating and complex mystery, set during the later years of the Georgian era under the reign of King George III. The history was so well-researched and detailed, and it didn’t hurt that Sebastian was such a strong protagonist who followed his own rules. It’s my favorite historical fiction to date.


Dearly, Departed, by Lia Habel

I read this one years ago, so my rating can’t be trusted. I get it: zombies don’t make good boyfriends, so a zombie romance is ridiculous and was probably just swept up in the overwhelming zombie craze a few years back. Still, I don’t think it was all that bad. I remember liking the characters and finding the world of New Vitoria very interesting.


A character that deserves more love

Rhy Maresh from A Darker Shade of Magic, by V.E. Schwab

I don’t think people hate Rhy – I just don’t think they love him as much as I do. I understand that he wasn’t as much of a character in the first book, but I adored the small parts that he had and I cared about him very much. I was attracted to his personality, from his bubbly, flirtatious side to the dark layers beneath. He was my favorite character throughout all three books. Personally, I love him more than Kell.


An underrated OTP

Alex and Miles from Made You Up, by Francesca Zappia

It’s no secret that I love this book, but please do not underestimate just how much. Re-reading books is a rarity for me, and I have to really, really love a book in order to do it – as seen by my thrice read The Raven Cycle. I re-read this book earlier this year to hype myself up for Eliza and Her Monsters, and I fell in love with it all over again. I love the dynamic between Alex and Miles, that subtle line between “I can’t stand you” and “I’m desperately in love with you”.


All right, I’m done~.

I tag Delphine @ Delphine’s Babble on Some Good Reads | icebreaker694 | Sophie @ Blame Chocolate.

Please only do it if you want to.

Until next time!

Reasons Why I Am A Horrible Human Being + Time and Place Book Tag

The Time and PlaceBook Tag.png


So, before I begin this shindig, here are my aforementioned reasons:

  1. I have not posted anything in over a month.
  2. I gave no notice that I was going away for a month, which could mean that I was a) unable to attain an internet connection, or b) that I was dead.
  3. I had no proper reason for going away at all.

If I am being perfectly honest, it was because I wasn’t well. Whenever I have a lot of free time, my mind tends to wander, and it goes places that I don’t like. I need things to occupy myself, otherwise, I start to go crazy. Essentially, what I’m trying to say is that I should’ve been putting more effort into the blog instead of practically abandoning it altogether.

I am back now. If I need to step away for a while, I will make sure to give notice.


I stole this from icebreaker694, per usual. There are no specific rules. It was created by Jen Campbell on YouTube, and her description goes as follows:

Pick ten books from your shelves that you associate with a specific time and place in your life. Tell us the story behind your choices and what the books are about.

Here we go!


Openly Straight, by Bill Konigsberg

16100972

I read this book while I was in the middle of figuring out my sexuality. I was very confused, and this book, along with Rafe’s confident personality, helped give me the extra push that I needed to come out to myself as bisexual. It would take another year for me to figure out that I was gay, and then another half of a year to come out to my parents. This book is the first in a long line of dominoes.


Vampire Kisses, by Ellen Schreiber

263147

I remember checking this book out all of the time back in middle school, and even a couple of times in high school. I was transfixed by it. There is always going to be a part of me that loves black clothes, graveyards, heavy metal and haunted houses, and this book represents that part.


The Amazing Book is Not On Fire, by Dan Howell and Phil Lester

25224799

Okay, honest confession time: I don’t really watch neither Dan nor Phil anymore. It is not on purpose; I have tried watching their videos, but I think I have matured and outgrown their sense of humor. Tragic? Yes. Extremely tragic. However, they – as well as this book – take me back to the days I spent holed up in my room, clicking video after video, because at the time, it was the only thing that could make me laugh.


A Trick of the Light, by Lois Metzger

16667645

When I was fifteen, I developed an eating disorder. I will not go into it because it is a story for another day. I didn’t like this book, but it hits it so spot on. It tells the story from the perspective of anorexia, and the unreliable voice in Mike’s head is exactly what it feels like to live with the disorder.


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling

136251

Is this a cliché? I think it is. Oh well. Instead of the first book, I chose the last one because I remember the exact moment that I finished it. I was twelve, sitting in social studies (when I was supposed to be working, of course), and I remember closing it and looking around the room, thinking, What the hell do I do now? It was like this big part of my life was over with, and now I had to read other books. The problem was that, after Harry Potter, for a while, I didn’t know how.


The Iron King, by Julie Kagawa

6644117

I’ve mentioned this book a lot, and I’m going to mention it one more time because it represents somebody important to me – my best friend. These books were her baby. When I showed her that I had checked out The Iron King, she freaked out and started screaming that they were the “BEST BOOKS IN THE WORLD” and “I LOVE THEM MORE THAN I LOVE CHOCOLATE-COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS.” (She really loves chocolate-covered espresso beans.) This is not the first book we’ve bonded over, but it was one of the biggest. It also represents how I fell back in love with the infamous paranormal romance genre.


The Ruins of Gorlan, by John Flanagan

604001

Yes, yes, this one is on here, too. It’s because Ranger’s Apprentice solidified a bond with my brother that had been missing for years. I have almost nothing in common with him; there is nothing that we share an interest in besides Harry Potter, and this. While I was reading it, we would talk about the books constantly. Sometimes we still do.


The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater

176754621

This is the part where there would normally be an awkward silence.

The Raven Boys is my favorite book, as I have mentioned, repeatedly, at least ten times a day for the past year. The reason why it’s on here, though, is because it changed me as a writer. The Raven Cycle became the mountain that I wanted to climb, the light that I wanted to reach. I finished the series and thought, “I want to write a book that will make a reader feel exactly as this series makes me feel.”


Drum Taps, by Walt Whitman

1240320

Emily Dickinson was my first favorite poet, but Walt Whitman was the one that made me understand why I love poetry. This collection is about the Civil War, and it made me cry – and I mean cry. I was sobbing so hard, I couldn’t even read the page. After that, I started to write poetry myself, though I’m not confident enough to share it with anyone.


Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë

6185

I do not like Wuthering Heights. I think I might like it more if I read it again, but I’ll save that for a rainy day. I bought my first (yes, first) copy of Wuthering Heights when I was in sixth grade. I was roughly eleven years old. I had no idea that it was literature, and so when I started to read it, I felt like someone had smashed me over the head with a brick. Is this English? What does that word even mean? This was written when? And so forth. Wuthering Heights was my first classic, and I didn’t finish reading it until I was fifteen. It reminds me of the moment I realized that there was a whole other world of books that I hadn’t discovered yet, ones that I wouldn’t be able to read until I was much older.


Whew. Okay, this was actually extremely hard for me to do. Because I am lazy, I will tag Gretchen @ Chicnerdreads and Sophie @ Blame Chocolate, because they are awesome, and also because I don’t think they’ve done this yet. If they have or they don’t want to, then, well. 😉

All right. I’m starving, so I will go make a sandwich. Until next time!

Goodreads Book Tag!

Goodreadsbooktag

おはよう、皆さん!(Good morning, everyone!)

I’m almost done with high school. My final day is next week! I’m nervous and excited all at the same time. I’ve been really busy, but now quite a few of my classes have ended, and I have more free time than ever.

To celebrate, I decided to do this tag that absolutely nobody asked for!

I nabbed it from over at Icebreaker694, and if you haven’t been tagged already by her, you should do it, too!


WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS READ?

After a long week of wrapping up my resume and portfolio project, I managed to finish a collection of stories by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa! I read the ninth volume of Haikyuu!! the same night, which I am slowly making my way through as the volumes become available at the library.


WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

194740

I can’t say anything about this yet, but I did like No Longer Human, so hopefully I will like this one as well.


WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO READ NEXT?

One of these two!


DO YOU USE THE STAR RATING SYSTEM?

Well, yes. Although I wish that Goodreads would include the half-star ratings.


ARE YOU DOING A 2017 READING CHALLENGE?

I WAS. But here’s the thing, see. I set it really high because I was reading a lot of manga, and although I was double-checking that I was adding the ‘read’ dates, for some reason Goodreads would cut like, twenty or so of my books out of my challenge. Gone. Kaput. So I just said, “Screw it,” then cancelled my challenge and figuratively sulked in a corner.


DO YOU HAVE A WISHLIST?

Yes, although I haven’t added any books to it in a while.


WHAT BOOK DO YOU PLAN TO BUY NEXT?

439359

I really want to read some poetry by Chūya Nakahara, but his books are so hard to find! I can’t get them through Mel-Cat. I especially want this one because it’s a bilingual edition.


DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE QUOTES?

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

I need to read more Jane Austen.


WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?

It’s not that I love every book that these authors have written, because Maggie Stiefvater is my favorite of all-time, and I haven’t been able to finish any of her older books yet. It’s just that they’ve written books that mean so much to me.


HAVE YOU JOINED ANY GROUPS?

Yes, but no. I’m a part of a few groups, but I don’t participate in any of them, and I feel like it’d be rude for me to leave. ;–;


I’m feeling lazy today, so this time I tag everyone!

(Seriously, though, everyone should do this tag.)

Until next time! ❤

(P.S: I’ve been watching Prince of Stride: Alternative lately, so have a gif of this angel.)

This or That Book Tag!

ThisorThatBookTag

This was a freebie that I snagged from Icebreaker694! Because it’s not like I haven’t done 9,999 tags already.


Rules

  • Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks)
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
  • Tag other people to do this tag to spread the love!

READING ON THE COUCH OR ON THE BED?

I tend to read more in bed, despite the fact that I’m always falling asleep.


MALE MAIN CHARACTER OR FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER?

Female – though ironically, I prefer to write from male perspectives.


SWEET SNACKS OR SALTY SNACKS?

Sweet~. ❤


TRIOLOGIES OR QUARTETS?

Quartets. The more books, the merrier!


FIRST PERSON POV OR THIRD POV?

Third-person. Putting some distance between myself and the main character helps me figure my feelings out for myself, instead of basing it off of their own emotions.


READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?

Reading at night. I’m too busy during the day to get much reading done, so most of my reading is done in the evening and night time.


LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?

Libraries! I get almost all of my books from there.


BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU CRY?

Books that make me laugh are always the best.


BLACK BOOK COVERS OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?

Black. They don’t get as dirty that way.


CHARACTER DRIVEN OR PLOT DRIVEN?

Plot-driven. Although I have to admit, a certain character can make a boring book twice as enjoyable.


Okay, now to tag some freaks.

Sophie @ BlameChocolate

Emma @ TheYaHunt

Jess @ TheMudAndStarsBookBlog

(As always, only do it if you want to!)

See you next time!

“What Cats Do” Book Tag!

-What Cats Do-Book Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Sophie @Blame Chocolate! This tag is wonderful. Both books and cats. How could I resist?


Rules


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

I know I talk about these books way too often, but they are really the only thing that keep me sane sometimes.


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

5907

I’m sorry, guys! I tried to read this, and I kept passing out. I don’t think J.R.R. Tolkein’s books are for me.


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

27406716

*happy sigh.*


SEEMS TO PLAY NICE…UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT- WHICH BOOK HAD THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST(S)?

I’ll have to pick these two! I definitely didn’t see the twist coming, that’s for sure.


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

10929432

Wesley from Victoria Schwab’s The Archived! He’s so adorable, funny, and kind. Definitely one of the best love interests of all time.


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

6936382

There’s a lot of controversey over this book, but I really liked it! There was a lot of romantic tension, and I kept squealing. Plus, it’s set in Paris, so the setting was very beautiful. ❤


CAT BREEDS- WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?

These two! The rest of them can be seen on my favorites shelf.


GETTING THE CAT- HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR FAVORITE BOOK(S).

Through Goodreads! I’m always searching lists and checking out what other people read in order for my next favorite. I don’t have many people to recommend me books in real life, since most of the time, our tastes are very different.


THE VET’S OFFICE- YOUR LEAST FAVORITE  BOOK:

13330943

I literally cannot stand the sight of this book.


BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T- LEAST FAVORITE CLICHÉ:

Bitchy mean girls/girl-hate/slut-shaming, etc., etc.


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

I received this book from Netgalley, and I really enjoyed it! I haven’t read the rest of the series, yet, but I want to.


I will tag….

Tiana @The Book Raven

Stephanie @Between Folded Pages!

As always, feel free not to do it if you don’t want to. (Though this is a cool tag, so you should!)

Until next time! ❤

Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag!

I’ve been doing so many tags lately. I think I’m procrastinating.

I found this over on Blame It On Chocolate! I wasn’t tagged, but I almost never am, and I wanted to do it anyway. 😀


Greed

What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

My copy of Animal Farm was originally 50¢ back in 1956, and I bought it for 10¢ at a garage sale! That makes it my cheapest book by far. My most expensive book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, since it’s the original hardcover edition. It’s $35.00, which makes it even more expensive than some of my reference books. (Lucky for me, it was a gift from my brother. Thanks, bro! ❤ )


Wrath

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

 

The identity of Tsugumi Ohba is unknown, so I don’t know who he/her/they really are. As much as I loved Death Note, I have a massive problem with the misogyny. It’s something that appeared in the series Bakuman, too, which Tsugumi Ohba also wrote. And I love Poe to death, but he was a pretty big kind of a narcissist. I mean, he wrote anonymous reviews of his own work. Come on, man.


Gluttony

What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

19547856

Simon is my spirit animal. ❤


Sloth

What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

I really, really want to read Anna Karenina, but the 900+ page length scares the crap out of me. The same things goes for David Copperfield, but even more so because it was a gift (a gift!) from a beloved teacher. It’s just that every time I start a Charles Dickens novel, his writing style throws me off. I find it so cumbersome and melodramatic.


Pride

What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intelligent reader?

Pick one.


Lust

What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?

Well, I like blondes.

I like my male characters two different ways: sweet and caring (think Zeke from Julie Kagawa’s The Immortal Rules) or bad-to-the-bone and twisted AF, with a tiny soft spot that shows they’re not a complete monster. With my girls, I just want them to kick ass, whether that means with physical or mental ability. I don’t want them to be petty or self-absorbed. They don’t have to be Lara Croft, but in some way, I want them to be strong.


Envy

What book would you like to receive as a gift?

I’ve been reading a lot of V.E. Schwab lately, and I really want her Shades of Magic trilogy! I’d like The Lost Prince and the rest of the Call of the Forgotten trilogy to complete my collection of The Iron Fey. Finally, I don’t own a lot of manga (just because it can get really pricy), but I’d love to own all of the volumes of Haikyuu!!, since it’s my favorite.


All right, and that’s it! This one was a lot of fun. I don’t usually tag, but this time I’ll nominate Emma @ The YA Hunt and Olivia @ Heir of Glitter, since I love their blogs so much! (Of course, you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. Don’t mind me.)

Have a good day, everyone! See you soon.

I can’t believe I was tagged. Holy shit! Thank you so much, Emma! 😀 (Check out her blog, she’s amazing.) ❤

Facts:

  1. I’m learning Japanese! It’s my favorite subject, and though it’s difficult, once you understand the structure, it’s a bit easier to understand. I want to live in Kyoto when I’m older, so learning the language was a necessity.
  2. I play the piano. Not well, mind, but I do play and I love it. There’s something really relaxing about a piece coming together. I also really want to learn the violin, but I can’t afford the lessons at the moment. 😦
  3. My best friend introduced me to BBC’s Sherlock and now I’m in hell. Help.

Emma’s questions!

What quote has changed your life (name the book it’s from!)?

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of my favorite books, and it’s very quotable. The one above is the one that stuck with me the most, though, because it’s so simple, yet it relates to something we all feel: the complexity of human emotion, how we can feel multiple, contrasting things at once. I thought I was the only one that had ever felt like that until I read that quote.

What’s the best book you have ever read?

I’m going to have to nominate Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys, since it’s my favorite, but also because I’ve never read anything like it, and that’s not something that I can say very often, you know?

Favourite character from a book/movie/anything?

Tobio Kageyama from Haikyuu!! I should actually make a list of these, because I think it would be interesting.

Image result for Kageyama gif

Do you buy books knowing you’re never going to read them?

Oh yes. All of the time. It’s a bad habit. I’ll buy a book because I’ve heard of it, or because it’s a classic and I just have to have it in my collection, but the truth is that I’ll probably never get around to it, especially if it’s really long.

 I’m going to steal Kayla’s question. What song is stuck in your head right now? (Link it if you can!)

YES! I love this question. Right now, it’s “カンタンナコト” by The Oral Cigarettes. (That roughly translates to “Something Simple.”)

I listen to too much J-rock.

Have a look!


Okay, my turn!

If you could go back in time to any period, which one would it be?

Do you have a song that reminds you of a person/place?

If you could slip inside of a book, which one would it be?

Which book/TV character would you marry, and why?

What’s your favorite inside joke?


I tag….

Sophie @ Blame Chocolate

Crystal @ Lost In a Good Book

Gretchen @ ChicNerdReads

That’s if they want to or if they haven’t been tagged already, of course. 😛 *Has no backbone.*
