Hi guys! Today I’m back with yet another tag. I was tagged by Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions to do The “I Messed Up” Book Tag a few weeks ago and I thought it would be a good idea to answer to this tag today :D. Thank you Cristina for tagging me for this amazing tag 🙂 . Let’s see my picks for this tag 🙂
1. A Character Appearance that you Misread or Imagined Differently:
Normally I’m pretty bad with character’s appearance. I’m so bad that they are normally pretty different from what I imagine. That’s why I don’t even try to make fan castings 😄 . However, one character that I was really surprised to see when I saw some fan art was Kai for The Lunar Chronicles. I didn’t imagine him like that at all.
2. A Character Name that you’ve been Pronouncing Wrong:
Every single name in all the fantasy books??? I’m pretty sure I pronounce every single Sarah J. Maas character name wrong. Like Feyre. I can’t pronounce her name. I just can’t. Also, Chaol. I managed to start saying his name right but I still mess up a lot of times.
3. An Overused Trope that is your Guilty Pleasure:
Best friends turned lovers. Give me all the best friends turned lovers books. I want it. It’s just too cute and I love it.
4. A Cliché Character Type that you Like Better on Screen than Reading About:
I have no idea. I think I’m stealing Cristina’s answer because she had a great answer and it’s true. I don’t like innocent naive girls in books. I don’t hate them but they get to my nerves most of the times. However, I don’t have any problem with that in movies or tv shows.
5. A Word/Phrase you Learned Because of its Use in a Book:
If you were asking me something a celebrity says you would have your answer above. I say “I don’t wike it” way too much and I blame Chris Evans for that 😄 . I don’t use that many words/phrases from books but sometimes I use this: ?_? . This my friends is Sgt. James McNulty “WTF face” (he’s from Illuminae in case you didn’t know) and I use it way more often than I should because it’s funny (not that I use it that often).
6. Have You Ever not Read or Completed a Required Reading Book for School?
Yep. I know I should but I just couldn’t finish O Memorial do Convento by José Saramago. I think I didn’t even get to 15% of that book because it was too boring and difficult to read. But hey, good thing that was something that didn’t come out in my portuguese exam or I would had a terrible grade. Do I plan to read that book eventually?? Not really 😛
7. Have you Ever (or Wanted to) Skipped a Chapter from the Point of View of a Character you Weren’t Interested in?
I’m going to be honest here, I skipped most of the Simon Snow parts in Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It’s not that I hated Simon or Baz (actually I love them) but I just wanted to know what was happening to Cath and Levi and I had to do it.
8. Have you Ever Cancelled Social Plans to Read a Book?
I can’t remember for sure but probably… Actually sometimes I say that I can’t go somewhere and end up reading the whole time. Sometimes I just have to… Books are important okay 😄
