SACRILEGE. It’s a non-review post on Miriam Joy Reads. What could possibly be the reason for this?
Well, I decided that even if I keep Mon-Weds-Fri as my review schedule, I’d occasionally do bonus posts on weekends. My friend Dan, who is the reason I remembered this blog existed, tagged me in the Bedtime Book Tag, and these are my responses.
A Book That Kept You Up All Night
Misery by Stephen King. Well, I read too fast for anything to keep me up all night, but both times I read that I was up until 1am. The first time to know whether it worked out okay. The second to check the ending was still the same. It was. I’m comforted by this.
2. A Book That Made You Scared To Sleep
Seed by Ania Ahlborn, but if you read my review of it yesterday, you already know that. Not only was I too freaked out to go to bed (I had to read something else to calm me down enough) but then I couldn’t get to sleep, either. FREAKY.
3. A Book That Made You Go To Sleep
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Look, I didn’t hate this book as much as I expected, but I still dropped off while reading it. I was on a course with the army at the time (long story) and sitting in a common room with a bunch of actual army people as well as my coursemates; needless to say this was a weird place to be (a) reading Jane Austen and (b) dozing off to it.
4. A Book That Left You Tossing and Turning All Night in Anticipation of its Release
You know, I really can’t think of any. I’m never up-to-date enough with new books! But I can anticipate a restless night ahead of The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater.
5. A Book That Has Your Dream Boyfriend (or girlfriend #NoH8)
Well, I’m not so much the relationship type, but I adore Kitty Jones from the Bartimaeus series by Jonathan Stroud. I think she’d be a pretty badass girlfriend, and she’s amazingly loyal. If I were to choose a guy… I don’t know. Maybe James Morgan from Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater? He cracks me up, but I imagine the bagpipes could get annoying.
6. A Book That Would Be Your Worst Nightmare To Live In
Just one? The kind of books I read don’t, on the whole, depict worlds that I’d enjoy if I was there myself. But one of them would be Shade’s Children by Garth Nix. Especially because if I went there now, I’d be dead, given my age.
7. A Book That Reminds You Of Night Time
8. A Book That Had A Nightmarish Cliffhanger
Dark Days by Derek Landy (Skulduggery Pleasant #4). And I didn’t have the next one from the library yet, either. 😦
9. A Book You Actually Dreamed About
I dream about many books. Sometimes I dream I’m reading them and then when I wake up the actual plot is nothing like my dream plot, which always a slight disappointment. I can’t think of an individual book, though. Sad times.
10. A Book Monster You Wouldn’t Want To Find Under Your Bed
Duh, any of them. Particularly the fairy beast from Creature of the Night by Kate Thompson, though, or maybe one of Ronan’s nightmare creatures from The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, unless he was there to deal with them. But jokes on you, because I have so much stuff under my bed that no monster could fit there. HA. I win.
I’m tagging Cait @ Paper Fury, even though she’s probably been tagged by ten thousand people already, because she’s an awesome book blogger. Of course, if any of my other readers want to take part, you’re welcome to do so — I haven’t had this blog up and running long enough to know many of you, so I don’t know who to tag. Enjoy!
