The Book Lover's Tag

What now? Why, another book tag, of course! *winks* Thanks to Rebekah for tagging me for The Book Lover's Tag! Sounds like just my thing.

~The Rules~

1. Answer the questions 

2. Have fun!
3. Tag some book loving bloggers

1. If you could rewrite the end of a book, which one would it be?

Um ... let's go with Beyond the Summerland by L.B. Graham. I would definitely make so a certain someone doesn't die. #epicfantasynovelproblems

2. Which fictional character are you most like?

I would say I share a lot of similarities with Azalea from Entwined by Heather Dixon. Big sister. Prim and proper. Scared to be vulnerable. Feminine and ladylike. Tenderhearted and protective.
I just love this book. <333

3. Do you have any signed books?

Yes! Three of my books from Tricia Mingerink are signed, as well as my copies of A Time to Die and A Time to Speak by Nadine Brandes. And I know I have a bunch more, though they might not all have been signed specifically for me.

4. What's the best book that you've read this year so far?

Okay, that is a hard question. Do I have to choose?? How 'bout I give you a list of "favorites thus far"? ;P

The Firethorn Crown by Lea Doue

~ Adventurous fairy tale ... twelve dancing princesses! *heart eyes* ~

The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof

~ All the sweetness and heartache and beautiful-ness ~

Shadow of the Storm by Connilyn Cossette

~ Fascinating, superbly-written ... and midwives! ~

The Ebb Tide by Beverly Lewis

~ The epitome of what a charming and heartfelt tale is ~

Deliver by Tricia Mingerink

~ All the love for these friends (beloved characters)! Perfect conclusion. ~

Bread of Angels by Tessa Afshar

~ Unique, applicable. So much growth and love and community. Made me cry. ^_^ ~

5. Do you have any bookish pet peeves?

I'm generally not a fan of love triangles or prideful, stubborn, kick-butt heroines that YA novels seem to favor.

6. Out of the books you've read so far this year, what has had your favorite cover?

I simply adore the cover for Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge. *smiles*

7. Is there a book that releases this year that you cannot wait to read?

Absolutely!! A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White and An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter to name a couple.

8. What is your favorite nonfiction book?

Good question. If we're talking "Christian Living", two of my favorites are Girl Defined by Kristen Clark & Bethany Baird and When Dreams Come True: A Love Story Only Could Write by Eric & Leslie Ludy

9. Do you have a favorite location and/or time period to have a book set in?

Revolutionary War, Regency, 1920s, World War II, and medieval times are some of my favorites. Or, just put it in a fantasy or fairy tale realm, and I'm perfectly content! <333

10. Is there a book that reminds you of something else? (Movies, life, etc...)

I can't really think of any. Well, besides Jane of Austin reminds me of the 2008 version of Sense and Sensibility. Considering it's a retelling of that particular tale, no wonder! *winks*

  1. We share several of the same "favorite" reads of this year (Bread of Angels, Shadow of the Storm, and The Lady and the Lionheart) ! Also, A Name Unknown and An Inconvenient Beauty are two of the Christian fiction novels I'm looking forward to the most, as well :)

    And Entwined is one of my favorites, too. I heard that Heather Dixon is working on a retelling of the Nutcracker next, and I really hope that gets published soon!

    1. Eee, all such beautiful reads! I'm glad we agree, Hayden! :) That's so cool - I think you have good taste. ;) I'm so ready to read another book by Roseanna M. White! Thankfully, I should be getting a review copy of A Name Unknown in the mail from Litfuse Bloggers soon-ish!

      WHAT?? Is this for real? I really hope so too! Heather Dixon did such an amazing job with Entwined, if she does another fairy tale retelling, I'm sure it'll be FANTASTIC. Definitely going to be on my to-read list. :D I must keep on eye on this!

      Thanks for stopping by! <3

  2. I loved both Deliver and the Out of Time books! Beyond the Summerland and Shadow of the Storm sound really interesting!

    1. Oh, those books are so good, Elizabeth! ^_^ They were interesting, definitely! I didn't like the ending of the BINDING OF THE BLADE (Beyond the Summerland) series, but Shadow of the Storm is a favorite book of mine! :))

  3. Thanks for doing the tag, Shantelle!! :)
    “The Ebb Tide”! Yes, it was so good, definitely one of my favorite books so far too!
    “Girl Defined” looks good!

    1. You're welcome, Rebekah! Thanks for tagging me! I really enjoyed doing it. ^_^

      Ah, one of my very favorites from Beverly Lewis! <3

      Girl Defined is so very good! Oh, you should read it, for sure! :))

  4. D'aww, I loved this post! ^_^ These bookish tags are so fun. :D Thanks for tagging me, m'dear! <3

    1. So glad you did, Deborah! :))) Yes, they are! You're welcome, darling! ^_^
