Book Tag: Fifty Questions Book Tag

I hit a bit of a wall when trying to figure out where this tag came from because some people never learned how to link back to creators. However, it was somewhere it Tumblr. That's all I know.

I don't think movie adaptations have the sort of power to ruin a book. It's just a bad movie.

When I need to pay close attention to detail.

38. Where is your favorite place to read?

My bed. Sometimes my couch.

Really depends on the day and if there is anything distracting nearby.

Ha! No.

41. Who gave you your love for reading?

Some tried, no one succeeded. It was all me, baby.

J. K. Rowling.

45. Which author would you most want to interview?

Stephen King

46. Which author do you think you’d be friends with?

It's hard to say since they would have to actually want to be friends with me, but I'd want to be friends with Jennifer L. Armentrout. 

47. What book have you reread the most?

This is a hard one because there are a lot of books that I've lost count of how many times I've read. 

48. Which books do you consider “classics”?

A lot? What kind of question is this?

49. Which books do you think should be taught in every school?

The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It has a really interesting perspective on mental illness and could, along the way help some kids going through some things maybe realize what they are going through is something they aren't alone in. I know it's already taught in some schools, but I think it needs to be more widespread.

50. Which books should be banned from all schools?

My first thought was Mein Kampf. And while I believe it most definitely shouldn't be taught in high school, I do think there is a place for it in higher education as it is a piece of history.

  1. This was a nice post. I agree with #27 a lot. Usually the movie was just a bad adaptation. You can just read the book only and enjoy the story.
