Back To School Tag

Back To School Tag

This is a tag that was created by Athena at INTOTHEMINDOFAREADER and she so greatly tagged me to do it. I'm so excited!!! My second time tagged to do a tag!!!

Ok, so simply you answer the questions. Even though I'm not going back to school, I'm going to college!! *Big difference* (I'm sorry, I've been saying that in nearly every post, but I'm so excited!!) I'm still doing this tag and for the questions I am going to pick books, where at all possible, that I haven't read yet, so I can apply them to my year :)

First question :

1. You’ve just started back and your workload has already increased. What short book do you read which doesn’t take up too much time?
I have quite a few book that are quite short which I haven't read yet. Short to me is under 300 pages. So there is two choices that I have and they would be What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell which has 265 pages or then Crash Into Me by Albert Borris which has 272 pages. Both are different, one is about a girl and her family and a war soldier, the other is about four suicidal teens who make a pact, so it's whichever one I'd be in the mood for at that time, I will read.

2. You are in your English class and the teacher says you will be spending the lesson reading an assigned book. What book did you have to read for school but end up actually enjoying?
I have actually only ever read 2 books for English class and well the best one was 'To Kill A Mockingbird' by Harper Lee.

3. You and your friends have had an argument and you’re feeling quite upset. What book never fails to cheer you up? 
A cheery uppy book, hmmm, I'm not one for reading comedies so any book that I love and that I am just lost in the world of would cheer me up. That wasn't a very good answer....

4. You’ve been given detention. What book do you wish you could have with you to pass the time? 
I've never been in detention!! I'm such a goody two shoes. Anyway, a book that I would love to read right now if I was in detention to pass the time would be Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee. I want this book so bad. I just. It's been on my mind since the release day. And it is one of the only books that I'm intentionally getting in hardback. Like Wow. So ya, I have it on order now, but the guy said it might take a month. So I'm stuck, for a month....

5. The bell rings for lunch time! Name a food from a book that you would love to try.
Most of the books I've read, the protagonists are starving, but anyhoo, the banquet on the train in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Pretty much any of the Capitol food..

6. You have a ton of homework to do and one assignment is to write a short story. What author’s writing style do you most enjoy to read?
I love Kelley Armstrong's writing. I love many author's writing style but she was the first name that came to mind. I love her Darkest Powers series and then there's a new series called Age of Legends and I read the first book, am totally in love and can't wait for the rest of them!!

7. Uh oh, exam time! The nerves are getting to you. Which book do you read to calm yourself down?
You should be studying!! But the book I would use to calm me down would be any of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter Books. The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, any, except City of Glass, that one would make me cry, and Clockwork Princess. 

8. You did amazingly well in your exams and are given some money as a reward. What book(s) do you rush straight out and buy?
A lot. Ok here's just a random list, a small random list of what I really want because if I listed them all it'd be way too long...
Here we go:
  • Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  • Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
  • The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco
  • The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
  • The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
  • Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
  • A Crack In Everything by Ruth Frances Long
  • Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Wow, that is a lot :/ and not even half of them...

9. Summer is almost upon us. What book do you read to get you in the mood for the fun and excitement that summer brings?
I haven't read a summer book. Contemporary is just not my thing. But for next summer, perhaps, I'll have Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson and I can read that!!!

And that is it!! I hope you enjoy my answers. Moi, I tag Constance from cravingbooks and Michelle's Minions and of course anyone else you wants to do it :)
