The Notebook Sisters' Tea Party Blog Tag!


This week is the three-year blogversary of the Notebook Sisters!! HAPPY FRABJOUS DAY, Cait and Mime! To celebrate, they're hosting all kinds of crazy stuffs, and this tag is just the first! I recommend you to join us becuase:
1. there are giveaways! Who doesn't like giveaways?
2. sisters are awesome


Okay, just kidding. 
But seriously, check their blog out if you haven't!
Aaaand, here it is, my first ever tag on my blog!


 

10 tag questions:
1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?
Mr.Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
It glows, people. And it's about a bookstore. 


2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you've ever read.

Fred and George from Harry Potter.  
They're the essentials.

     Alaska from Looking for Alaska
Look at her pranks. Epic.


   

3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?

Oh my gawd, Breaking Dawn. 
The first three in the Twilight saga aren't actually that bad. But this? No. 



4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you've been "late" to pick them up?

  Daughter of Smoke and Bone. 
 



5. Caterpillar: What's the most confusing book you've read?

A Pack of Lies
What...what..how...who the hell is MCC Berkshire?  


 Sophie's World 
 So you're telling me that I'm possibly in a book that a soldier wrote for his daughter for her birthday. Great.

Sophie's World


6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep?

Unfortunately, my math workbook.

7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?

I'll go with in 27 Days on Wattpad.
I know it's not a physical book or even been published but this book is so sweet and warm. I've read it two times and that's pretty rare since it's on Wattpad. Oh, and it's not like the cover implies. Sure there's romance, but there's also tons more! Trust me, I'm not a romance person.





8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?

  Prince Raoden and Princess Sarene in Elantris.
They're such decent people and true leaders.
 



 
9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you've read this year?

Mrs.Granger in Frindle.
She plays her villain well. She's a good villain. Just good.
(I didn't read the book this year, though. Whatever.)
 
 

10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What's the latest book/series/author that's completely swallowed your interest?

  Finding Cassie Crazy
 I KNOW IT SAYS THE YEAR OF SECRET ASSIGNMENTS ON THE COVER BUT WE  ALL AGREE THAT FINDING CASSIE CRAZY IS WAAAYY BETTER THAN TYOSA. OKAY? OKAY. AND STRAWBERRIES ARE way cooler.
So I started to reread this book. I first read it in elementary school and even till now it still brings back so much memories! I know it's an old book but I just have to plunge into it again and again.




There you have it, my first ever blog tag! It's really fun, but it also made me realize how little I read lately. Most of the books mentioned above are read literally years ago, and I'm ashamed now. I need to start reading more books!

Do you like reading? What do you think about the tag? Have you heard of the Notebook Sisters? Comment down below and thanks for reading!

  1. OH I REMEMBER FRINDLE. I loved that book. I loved his book called The School Story. It kind of inspired me to write myself. ;) Alaska definitely fits into the crazy category. Gosh, that girl had insane ideas. *sobs a little* I haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone yet either!! I want to, though! It's just huge (I believe anyway)...so yeah. Procrastination = me.
    Thanks so much for linking up with us! (I'm sooo happy you like our blog! HUZZAH. *passes party cake*)

    1. Do you know you're the first to comment on my blog? *sobs more*
      I love The School Story, too! I'd like to say it inspired me to write... but I'm also a huge procrastinator and Ihaventreallystartedwritingseriouslyyetokayletsnottalkaboutit.
      Anyway, thanks for commenting! I really enjoy linking up with you :). *swallows party cake*
      WAIT. Does the cake have some kind of insane magic, like turns me into a giant or shinks me?

  2. Hahaha... Breaking Dawn. Yeah, I understand.

    I came late to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series, too. I've still only read the first book (but I loved it).

    And you've read Sophie's World! I guess it was a bit confusing... but I also thought it was very interesting. I don't know if I've ever learned so much factual stuff from a novel before.

    1. Seems that many people are "late" for Daughter of Smoke & Bone...:O I actually got the book last December, but I haven't got myself to read it. I'm still waiting for a time when I can actually sit down and finish the whole book because I've heard that it's so good and I don't want to be tore out of the book whilst reading.:P
      Sophie's World is SO confusing...but yes it's really interesting and I loved it! And now looking back on the story, I often find more philosophical concepts that Jostein Gaarder secretly planted into the storyline!
      Also, thanks for reading and commenting! :)

  3. "Unfortunately, my math workbook." Haha, great answer! :D

    Ahhhh, out of Brandon Sanderson's books, I've only read the Mistborn series but I LOVED THEM SO MUCH, I don't know why it's taking me to so long to check out all his other books!

    I never did finish Sophie's World. I fancied myself really into philosophy at a young age and thought Sophie's World would be great but god it was so confusing and boring and I just gave up pretty quickly. I'm still into philosophy now and have to read Plato and stuff for my degree, so maybe I should pick that book up again and see if I'm got any better at all this stuff, haha.

    Jaclyn Moriarty is so so great!!! I loved her books so much when I was younger. I remember staying up late (haha, late meaning like, midnight or something, probably) to finish a book of hers.

    I read the first three Twilight books as they came out but then by the time Breaking Dawn came out I'd completely lost interest and I'm now super thankful I never read it, because it sounds horrendous, haha.

    Here's my tea party blog tag!

    1. I know right?! Mistborn is such a masterpiece! Brandon Sanderson is just great at world building and all that stuff!
      Sophie's World is indeed confusing, but I liked it anyway, actually it's the book that got me into philosophy.
      I love the way Jaclyn Moriarty wrote Finding Cassie Crazy and Feeling Sorry for Celia, a book that actually came out before FCC. Everything is witty and the whole book was written in notes and mails. How cool is that?
      Thanks for checking out my blog and commenting!

      Also, I read your blog post! I don't really want to sign up for a Disqus account for now so I'll comment down here...
      Can I say that the cover of Daughter of Smoke and Bone you showed is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous? I've been wanting to read it for so long; I guess what kept me from reading it is its high praise and positive reviews. I want to save the best for the last. :P

      I haven't read any books you mentioned above, but I'm dying to read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe!

  4. Hahaha, I was so surprised and amazed when I realized that Mr. Penumbra glowed in the dark. Whaaat?
