I Messed Up Book Tag

 

 

Thank you Danielle at the Introverted Book Nerd for tagging me!

A character appearance that you misread or imagined differently.

Jamie from Outlander, I’m not really sure how I pictured him. I think I just had a hard time actually picturing him.  But I love Sam Heughan’s portrayal. He’s amazing as Jamie. I wish I got to watch the show more, I’m way behind!

A character name that you have been pronouncing wrong.

I think everybody might have stuttered over Hermione from Harry Potter, at least until the movies came out!  Even Viktor Krum had a hard time with it!

And then  there’s Laoghaire  from Outlander.   I always thought it was La-heerie but it’s actually LEE-ree.  Oops!

 

 

An overused trope that is your guilty pleasure.

The one who appears as the good guy is the murderer. I love a good plot twist!

A cliche character type that you like better on screen than reading about.

It’s the funny ones, like the Weasley brothers!  They are so funny in the movies, it’s really difficult to capture that humour with the written word.

 

Have you ever not read or completed a required-reading book for school?

Never!

Have you ever skipped (or wanted to) a chapter from the point of view of a character you weren’t interested in?

Of course, but I never do. It might be important to the story later on! I have read the last page of a book before, though!

Have you ever canceled social plans to read a book?

Oh yes.

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE:

I’ve heard so many people saying how much they enjoyed these books, and how they such a ‘feel good’ series that I had to check it out for myself  🙂

I was at the bookstore and flipped through some of the stories and I knew, right then and there, I would leave my credit card in my purse. Nope.  Not for me!  Just too much over the top sappiness.

 

 

 

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE:

I’ve heard rumblings that Dan Brown is an awful writer, that it’s just really, really bad writing, it’s predictable and overrated.

I loved this book, though! I loved the whole secret Illuminati thing…so mysterious!  What if!

I loved Robert Langdon’s character, and I liked Tom Hanks portrayal of him in the movie, too!  I know he wasn’t a popular pick, but I totally enjoyed it.

 

 

 

AN OTP (ONE TRUE PAIRING) THAT YOU DON’T LIKE:

I’m sure we thought these two were gone forever, but I brought them back for the purpose of this post.  Sorry if I ruined anyone’s breakfast!

Honestly, I’ve heard the books were good, though I’ve never read them myself.  I couldn’t get through the movies.  Sorry.  Just couldn’t.

 

 

A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR:

Fabio has amazing hair and a great body but I need more than that in a novel.  Romance just doesn’t cut it for me.  Sorry! The love at first sight or the love triangle can be so cliche.  Or the, I-don’t-like-you-but-there’s-somethig-about-you.

A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE:

The Cat in the Hat.  I feel like I’m going to get in trouble for this one!

I know it’s only a cartoon, but he makes such a mess… The mom in me was freaking out 😉

 

 

 

A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO:

Nora Roberts.  I know she’s written tons of books and is incredibly popular.

I tried to like her books, really I did!  but I guess it’s that romance thing.

 

 

 

 

A POPULAR BOOK TROPE (OVERUSED PLOT DEVICE) THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING:

The post apocalyptic trope.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved the Hunger Games and Divergent but I’m good for now on those themes, thank you very much!

 

A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING:

 

 

Nope.  No interest.  None.

Just  isn’t my thing.

 

 

 

 

THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK?:

 

I mean, the book was great and all, but so long!  The movie was long too, but awesome 🙂
