Today we are doing a tag again, a very tricky one if you ask me. The questions are a bit more personal and it had me thinking for SUCH a long time. WHO AM I?! Ha-ha. The lovely Nikita @Prose & Pancakes tagged me in this one. Check out her blog, she does a lot of fun posts!
This tag was originally created by PBS Digital Studios for The Great American Read competition of which you can find the results here.
If your life were a book genre, what would it be?
It would probably be comedy? Maybe a funny children’s book? It’s not that I think I’m very funny, but more so that stuff always tends to go wrong and it makes for a lot of funny stories. I’m a very clumsy person and I tend to have bad luck. I’m the type of person who can break something just by looking at it and who has had more awkward interactions with people than I can even recount. To illustrate my point, just now while writing this post I burnt a piece of my hair trying to light a candle. I wish I was making that up.
What villain from a book do you identify with the most?
A villain from a book… that’s such a tough one. I’m a little bit like the crazy researcher person in An Anonymous Girl because I’m actually running some psychological research for my masters right now and sometimes I feel like I’m ‘messing’ with people. Or maybe right now I’m like Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because I have a cold and am constantly doing that annoying *hem hem* cough? I guess that works.
What protagonist are you most similar to?
These questions are so haaaaaaaard. Man. I don’t have any deep thoughts on protagonists I’m similar to. I read thrillers. Characters are mostly just unlikeable and frustrating. Let’s just go with this: I’m similar to Jules from Lock Every Door because I’m broke and I would totally go live in a creepy house if they paid me for it. I could have BEEN Jules.
Which book did you connect with in the past that you no longer do?
*Insert any angsty teen book about a girl wondering from afar if a boy likes her and being jealous of any girl that makes eye contact with him or even gets to breathe in his general direction*
What recent book you read would you love to be a character in?
Hm… since I wouldn’t want to be a character in any of the thrillers or heavy contemporary’s I read, I’m going with a world in a manga series I started this year. Witch Hat Atelier focusses on a girl in a world where magic seems to be something only a select group of people can still practice (but nothing is as it seems). The magic system works with drawing different kinds of symbols inside circles and it’s just the coolest thing ever. I used to draw a lot so I think I could potentially be a very skilled witch in this world.
How do your reading habits show off your personality?
This is where we really get to the bottom of things. So, I often pick up books just to find out I’m not in the mood for it. I tend to have waves of what genres I like, but the core of my reading will always consist of thrillers, mainly the ones where we follow the messed up people and not the nice detective trying to solve the case. I don’t like series because I never end up finishing them and lose interest. I only like to read romance heavy books on rare occasions, otherwise I try to actively avoid books with a focus on it. So what does that say about me? It kind of makes me sound like an unstable, grumpy person who’s only interested in messed up people.😂
What book thaught you something about yourself?
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine thaught me that 1. I am definitely more of an introvert than I thought I was, 2. that it’s completely fine (pun intended), and 3. that I don’t have to change for anyone and just need to focus on the people I enjoy being around, even if we’re all just a bunch of weirdos together. I tend to want to be friends with everyone and put a lot of effort into people who don’t do the same for me. This is something I have been working on but it was really nice to see Eleanor be herself, open up to people, and make meaningful connections.
