Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.

I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!

ACOTAR #4 Title Reveal!

I don’t really check my phone in the morning or even during the day since I’m at school and my phone doesn’t work inside the school. So when I got home and opened up my Instagram to see Sarah J. Maas’ new post, I was like:

I’m a little late to this but Sarah J. Maas released the title of the fourth ACOTAR book! I feel like a lot of us were really confused as to what would happen next after the third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin, as Sarah J. Maas said that the last three books would be set in the same world as the first three but follow a different set of characters.

If you want more information about that, I made a post here.

Anyway, without delay, here is the title of the next ACOTAR book!

(Forewarning: there might be teeny, tiny spoilers beyond this point so if you haven’t caught up on the series yet I would not continue.)

The Fall Book Tag

It’s already half way through November, which means fall is coming to an end.

(If you can’t tell, I really like the fall season.)

I’ve been pretty behind on blogging and reading in general, but when I saw that I was tagged to do the Fall Book Tag, I had to get onto it immediately… except I didn’t. These past couple weeks have been rough and I haven’t been able to get enough sleep, even on weekends. That’s why I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything. Also, I discovered the Webtoons app and have been obsessed with all the comics and stories on it ever since, putting me even more behind on work.

No excuses, though! I screwed my head on straight again and now I’m going to try and stop procrastinating to get my life back on track (and hopefully get a little bit more sleep).

I was tagged by the lovely Marta over at The Book Mermaid. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love ❤

The Rules:

  • Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!! She wants to see your answers!!
  • Use the graphics – if you want
  • Have fun!

Un-To-Be-Read

I was recently going through my Goodreads TBR list to see what I could potentially read to get out of my reading slump and I realized that there are a lot of books that I have on there that I have no interest in reading anymore. Some of the books on the list I added several years ago and never got around to reading.

Because of the large amount of books on my TBR list that I don’t want to read anymore, I thought it would be high time that I take them off. I compiled a list of books I’m going to un-TBR (is there another term for taking books off your TBR shelf?).

Books I’m Ashamed I Haven’t Read Yet

I’m a slow reader. On top of that, my mind is super picky on what it wants to read and when. On top of that, school has started and I have little to no free time to read. That being said, I have not read a lot of books that everyone else is the YA community seems to have read. It seems like I’m the only one who hasn’t read these books yet, and I feel slightly embarrassed, especially since I own physical copies of most of the books.

I’m hoping that by acknowledging that I haven’t read these book, I’ll motivate myself to read them soon.

First Impressions of Books

People always say “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but let’s be completely honest, we still do it. Literally. Whenever I’m at a bookstore or shopping online, the reason I’ll pick up a book is to read the blurb if the cover catches my attention.

Now, most of the time, the covers are not deceiving, but some of them are. I’m going to look at covers of books I’ve never read and try and guess what the book is about. Then I’ll look at the blurb to see how accurate I was.

Let’s do this! Continue reading

Spooky Scary Book Tag

Halloween is approaching and I still don’t know what I’m going to dress up as. Chances are I’m going to procrastinate on making my costume to the very last minute, like I do every year.

I was tagged by the lovely Heather over at The Sassy Book Geek! Don’t forget to check out her blog and give her some love! ❤ (This tag was originally created by Clever Fox!)

Although I love the holiday of Halloween, I am a big chicken. I don’t like scary things. I don’t like scary movies, and I’m terrified of haunted houses. You can’t get me within a mile of a haunted house, no matter how mild the scares are.

I also don’t read a lot of scary books either. I’ve got a fairly vivid and irrational imagination, and I don’t need scary stories to help me conjure up monsters in my head. That being said, a lot of my book choices for this tag won’t actually be all that scary.

YA Novels with Male Protagonists

I read a lot of young adult novels. In fact, 95% of what I read is in the young adult genre. What I’ve noticed over the years is that there aren’t a lot of male protagonists. Sure, there are some male main characters, but most of the time the story isn’t focused on them. Often times it is a girl narrating the story or, if it’s in third person, the narrator focuses on the girl more than the guy.

We need more male protagonists in the YA genre. Everyone should have a protagonist they can relate to, and that means boys as well. I came up with a list of books that have a male main characters. The sad thing is, I had a lot of trouble compiling a list because there are so few books with male protagonists that I’ve read. This goes to show that either 1) I’m more interested in books with female protagonists or 2) the world needs more YA books with male main characters.
