M.A.S.H Book Tag

I saw this tag at Journey Into Books and immediately knew I needed to participate! I used to play M.A.S.H all the time. It brings back great memories of giggling in class and wishing the game would predict an amazing life with the guy you happened to have a crush on, at the time.  It was silly and fun game and this tag is amazing!


  • Link back to my original post on Kyera’s Library so I can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
  • Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
  • Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
  • Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!

If you don’t know how to play M.A.S.H then head on over to Kyera’s post, or just google it 🙂 I am not going to try and explain it.


My memories of playing this game include writing out everything in our notebooks, so for nostalgia’s sake I did it on a piece of paper! We also always used to do “3 Positives and 1 Negative” so the first three things, in every category, are ones I want and the last 1 is one I don’t.


Please ignore my penmanship and any spelling errors! Also drawing a spiral with your eyes closed is really hard.

The Results:

  • Genre – Horror
  • Love Interest – Wesley (Princess Bride)
  • Setting – Hogwarts (Harry Potter)
  • Best Friend – Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)
  • Villain – Boba Fett (Star Wars)
  • Pet – Scabbers (Harry Potter)
  • Job – Slave
  • Transportation – Walking
  • Power – Wizard
  • Trope or Twist – The Chosen One
  • House – Apartment

Here is my book blurb:

Sold into slavery at a very young age, Brittany has spent her whole life living in the tiny apartment of her bounty-hunter master, Boba Fett.  Brittany, doesn’t know anything about who her parents were or where she came from, but she does know that she is a Wizard.  Taking only her pet rat, Scabbers, Brittany escapes the apartment in search of the rumored Hogwarts, a school for witchcraft and wizardry.  She is determined to find it even if she has to walk there.  Along the way she meets Elizabeth and Wesley, and together the trio faces unspeakable horrors as they fight to evade Boba Fett and find Hogwarts.  Little does Brittany know, Hogwarts is cursed and she is the one destined to break it.  And for some reason her rat seems determined to stop her.

Top Ten Tuesday – March 6: Favorite Book Quotes


I may or may not have spent two hours this morning reading through a bunch of Top Ten posts.  I LOVE quotes.  And I LOVE lists (I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately) so of course, lists of quotes are my cup of tea!

giphy (55).gif

After reading through so many quotes I decided I needed to participate this week! Unfortunately I don’t already have a list of favorite quotes (I know shocking!) so I will be using google to find cool book quotes! Moving forward I am going to attempt to start saving quotes, but I don’t have high hopes at succeeding.  If I had decided to write this post earlier I could have stolen my favorites from other people’s lists, but I didn’t think about it till it was too late. (Hindsight is 20-20)

In order to find quotes I picked some of my favorite books and then googled quotes from them and picked one quote from each book.  This was super hard because some books had 5 or 6 quotes I wanted to choose!

Thanks for reading! What is your favorite quote?  Have you read any of these books?

I Dare You! Book Tag

I was tagged by Melanie Loves Fiction.  Go check out this blog! Seriously! Its awesome 🙂 Melanie is awesome (and not just because she listed me on her Favorite Blogs page).


  • Friends don’t lie.
  • You must answer all the questions
  • You must tag 4 people

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

We are not off to a good start.  I have no idea! I have books from when I was a child and I can’t know what order I got them in! One of my favorites though, was The Snow Tree


P.S. This picture is from my Book Scavenger Hunt post.  There is no real reason why I included the train in my picture.

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?

Last Read: The Viking’s Chosen

Current Read: Geekerella

Next Read: Daughter of the Siren Queen

3. What book did everyone like but you hated?

Lord of the Flies.  I don’t know if everyone actually liked it but they didn’t seem to have as many issues with it as I did. That book is messed up.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably wont?

The Count of Monte Cristo.  Its soooo long.  I have started it a couple times but have never been able to finish it.


5. What book are you saving for your retirement?

I don’t even like planning out what book I will read next yet alone what I will read in retirement.  That is too far away to think about.

6. Last page: Read it first or wait till the end?

I see this question a lot, but does anyone actually do this? It makes absolutely no sense to me! Why would anyone even consider reading the last page first?  At best it won’t make any sense.  At worst it could contain some major spoilers.

7. Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?

Both, Neither? I try to read them and sometimes they are interesting but most of the times I get halfway through and then just skim the rest.

8. Which book character would you switch places with?

Um? I don’t know! My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice but I wouldn’t really want to change places with her because that time period was awful for woman!

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)

The Name of the Wind reminds me of my friend Jordan.  He isn’t a huge reader but that is his favorite book so I need to read it for him!

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

Heroine’s Complex.  I was at Denver Comic Con and there was an author that was signing his book if you bought a copy of it.  He was just at a regular booth, not in a special signing area, and his booth was combined with a book sellers.  They had a deal that if you bought his book you got two other free books.  I thought this was an awesome deal.  I bought his book (which I never read and can’t remember what it was called #oops), and The Name of the Wind (because I need to read it for Jordan).  I didn’t know what to get for the third book so I asked the lady behind the table and she suggested Heroine’s Complex.  Its the only book of the three that I actually read and it is now one of my favorite books!


11. Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?

When my niece was born I gave my sister a bookshelf and a bunch of children’s books that I remember from my childhood.  Now for Christmas and my niece’s Birthday I give my niece books (along with toys and things she actually wants).  For Christmas I gave her The Monster at the End of This Book and a Grover stuffed animal.  She just wanted to chew on his nose, but my Mom, Grandma, and Sister were super excited about the book because we all remember it from when I was a child.

12. Which book has been with you most the places?

Pride and Prejudice! Or maybe Harry Potter!


13. Any “required reading” that you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

Nope!  I don’t re-read books a lot and for sure don’t re-read books I hated, so my opinion on them won’t change.

14. Used or brand new?

Doesn’t matter.  I like used books because they are cheaper but I don’t have a used book store near me anymore and don’t like waiting for shipping when buying used books online.  Most of the books I buy are new, either from Amazon (with 2 day shipping) or Barnes and Noble (because its close to my house)

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

I am awful with author names so I had to look him up, but no, I haven’t.

16. Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?

Not yet!

17. Have you ever read a book that made you hungry, cookbooks included?

Not that I can think of, though I am hungry right now so this question is making me hungrier!

giphy (28)

18. Who is a person who’s book advice you’ll always take?

I only really have gotten advice from my Mom, my Grandma, my Sister, and my friend Phil.  I will take into consideration their advice, but we all like different books so I don’t blindly follow any of their advice.

19. Is there a book outside of your comfort zone that you ended up loving?

Wonder.  I don’t usually read serious books, so this was out of my comfort zone, but I loved it!

3 Quotes, 3 Days Tag – Day 3


  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Today is my 3rd and final post for this tag 😦 It has been so hard to pick quotes, but a lot of fun too!  Here is my third quote:

“′Classic′ – a book which people praise and don’t read.”
― Mark Twain

I love funny quotes and sayings.  They just make me happy.  I picked this quote because it is somewhat true and funny at the same time 🙂 I know which classics I like because I had to read them in High School, but it is rare for me to pick up a classic when I am choosing a book for myself.

I hope you enjoyed my quotes! What are some of your favorite quotes?  Let me know in the comments or do the tag yourself! I am not going to tag anyone specifically but feel free to participate!

3 Quotes, 3 Days Tag – Day 2


  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Yesterday my quote(s) were about the importance of reading to children.  I could easily make all three quotes about books and I could get away with it because this is a book blog but I won’t.

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Yes, this quote is from a book, but it is not about books! So I am #Winning! Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book and I love how the love story is gradual.  Just like in real life.  There is no insta-love.  And this quote sums it up perfectly!

Again I am not going to tag anyone, but if you want to do it then please do! Its fun!
