Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0


anigif_enhanced-buzz-11302-1363391135-5

I recently filmed the Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0 and I loved every minute of it! If you didn’t know, I’m the biggest Gilmore Girls fan and I also created The Gilmore Girls Book Tag back in 2014 when it released on Netflix in the US.

Pink Lemonade Reads on Booktube created this tag and I hope you guys will share it! I did the tag on my Booktube channel but I released I didn’t do all of the questions? The footage must’ve gotten lost or something…Maybe I’ll film a part two. But for now here is the tag in written form!

I had so much fun filming and editing this video!! I love Gilmore Girls so much and this was a great tag. I’ll be doing my OG one closer to the revival date! *SPOILERS FOR GILMORE GIRLS* 


1. I JUST GOT HIT BY A DEER – character having the worst day ever 

I’m going with Hank from My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul. Hank promposes to the girl of his dreams by writing the word P-R-O-M out in sparklers. This results in her house *almost* catching on fire. So, I guess we could say he had a pretty bad day.rory-deer-gilmore-girls-6515

2. STARS HOLLOW – wildly eccentric cast

I just recently read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson and it has a vast cast of characters. Andie’s friend group is pretty large and I loved how they all had their own personality and felt like real characters rather than just side characters.Image result for tumblr stars hollow
3. COFFEE – a book you’re addicted to/a character w/ an addiction

In my video, I mentioned an author I’m addicted to and I chose Rainbow Rowell because I’m so addicted to her writing, I’d read anything by her!

4. SOMEONE DEVIL EGGED BY CAR?! – great act of revenge
Okay, can I just say I’ve ALWAYS wanted to devil egg someones car? Like, it’s on my bucket list. A book that features revenge is Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan  this book is about a prank war and a group of “The Breakfast Club” like teenagers who are trying to expose The Chaos Club at their school. So many pranks and much revenge!tumblr_nd3i3bu52t1qzcyzso8_1280
5. MR. MEDINA – an illicit affair

I really don’t have an answer for this! I don’t know that I’ve read any books featuring an affair. Image result for max medina gilmore girls
6. KIM’S ANTIQUES – a world you’d be afraid to enter

Dystopian is a genre I rarely read. But, I think the Divergent world is one I wouldn’t survive in. I’m totally in Amity but I just wouldn’t like to live in a world that Jeanine rules and the blood? no thank you!

7. HARVARD VS. YALE – character who needs to make a life-changing decision

In Landline by Rainbow Rowell, Georgie McCool makes a life-changing decision. She is able to call her husband Neal from 15 years in the past through her old rotary phone. She can either fix things or change them entirely.

8. LUKE’S DINER – a comfort read

In my video, I chose Anna and the French Kiss (collection) by Stephanie Perkins. Her characters and writing is so fluffy and just makes me feel comfy while I was reading!

9. AM I CRYING OR LAUGHING? – a book that messed with your emotions
A book that gave me all of the feels? BEEN HERE ALL ALONG by Sandy Hall. IT KILLED ME IN THE FEELS. AWH IT WAS SO CUTE.

10. EMILY – the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge)

I can’t even think of a character that tops Emily Gilmore!

11. LORELAI AND RORY – favorite family dynamic

My favorite family is the Spiers from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. This  is a family I would love to be in. I mentioned this in my Top 5 Wednesday Fictional Family post. They’re big fans of The Bachelorette and are just very accepting and fun!anigif_f13b0852ba95f07b029d7945b0fff937-24
12. I PUSHED HIM IN THE LAKE! – a book you’d throw in a lake

Okay, does anyone else just replay this scene over and over? It was hilarious!! I love Luke  and Jess’ relationship.  A book that I would throw in a lake is Elsewhere by Gabrielle Ziven. I don’t dislike books very much but this was one I really disliked. I just didn’t agree with the world and the character was very very annoying. anigif_enhanced-buzz-14033-1363392192-10
13. 1000 YELLOW DAISIES – favorite romance

So many romances to pick…I’m going to go with a recent romance from In Real Life by Jessica Love. Nick and Hannah were SOOOO cute! Despite Hannah running away from her problems…I really like how their story ended! Internet romance is adorable.

Image result for gilmore girls daisies gif
14. JESS – an unpopular opinion
I’m #TeamJess forever and I’m not ashamed! I love Jess and his character so much and his character development was so great. An unpopular book opinion of mine is The Haters by Jesse Andrews, it was definitely a disappointing read this year and I’m sad because I really wanted to like it and I was looking forward to it. The humor wasn’t for me and it wasn’t much of a road trip book like it was said to be.

15. FIRST SNOW – snowy or holiday read

One of my favorite holiday reads is Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan! I read it just last December and I can’t wait for the sequel!Image result for snow gilmore gif
16. HEP ALIEN – book centered around music

Would it be wrong if I picked Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist? Well, I am. I just read it this summer via audiobook and I loved it! It’s so close to the movie it was like I was listening to the movie. Image result for hep alien gif
17. HE’D BETTER HAVE A MOTORCYCLE! – your book crush

Lately, I’ve been torn between the #1 book boyfriend spot. Levi from Fangirl and Peter K from TATBILB are fighting for the top. But, it’s been Peter K a lot recently. So..I’m not going to pick 😉

anigif_enhanced-buzz-12491-1363391526-1
18. IT’S REPETITIVE AND REDUNDANT – a book that could have been shorter

I read short books to begin with because Contemporary is usually short. But, I’m going to say The Selection Series for this. I really loved this series though I feel like the Elite wasn’t needed! It could’ve been a standalone or duo! Image result for gilmore girls repetitive and redundant
19. KIRK – the weirdest book you’ve ever read

A weird book I’ve read is From A Distant Star by Karen McQuestion. You can read my review, it’s a sci-fi contemporary book in my opinion. I enjoyed it however the story was definitely weird! Image result for gilmore girls kirk gif
20. IT’S A LIFESTYLE. IT’S A RELIGION – that one book that means more to you than any other. 

Did I really do a book tag if I didn’t fully mention To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han? This book means the world to me. It’s one of my favorites, I’ve read it 4x and I’m going to be a mess when the third book comes out. If you haven’t read it, I really suggest it.

So, there is the Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0! I loved these questions. Go watch my video and the OG video! I don’t know who all are Gilmore Girls fans so I tag everyone!!

The Book Courtship Tag


bookcourtshiptag
It’s Valentine’s Week, which is one of my favorite weeks because we get to honor our favorite book couples and fictional boyfriends as well as Contemporary authors/books. Today, I’m doing a tag that was created on BookTube, the Book Courtship Tag. I’ve always wanted to do this and I thought it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

This tag consists of the eight phases of a Courtship with your books.


 

Phase 1
Initial Attraction – A book that you bought because of the cover?

 

 

This cover is stunning!  and the illustrations are too. This question made me realize how many books I buy based on the author :O
Phase 2 

First impressions: A book that you got because of the summary.

I was immediately hooked when I read this summary in the aisle at B&N.

Here’s the Goodreads summary:
The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.

Phase 3
Sweet Talk – A book with great writing? 

This is written excellently. The writing is really what kept me going in this book!

18692431

Phase 4
First Date – A first book in a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

 

10507293I think the Selection was a good first book in a series, it’s so addicting that you crave more!!

 

Phase 5
Late Night Phone Calls- A book that kept you up all night?

Many books have kept me up late, but usually it’s during a read a thon. I usually always go with If I Stay because they story was so captivating that I couldn’t stop reading it!!

6990472

 

Phase 6
Always On My Mind – A book that you could not stop thinking about?

I still can’t stop thinking about this book and I read it last month. IT WAS SO AMAZING. Go read it!!!

23341894

 

Phase 7
Getting Physical –  A book which you love the way it feels?

Not only is this cover glow-in-the-dark but the books on the cover have a nice texture!!

13538873
Phase 8
Meeting the parents – A book which you would recommend to your family & friends.

I would recommend The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Shephen Chbosky to everyone!! It’s such a great read for anyone to enjoy. I don’t think I know anyone who didn’t like it.

Perksofbeingwallflower1

 

 

Phase 9
Thinking about the Future – A book or series that you know you will re-read many times in the future?

I hope that I will re-read all of my favorite books many times in the future! Especially these:

 

Phase 10
Share the Love- Who do you tag??

I tag anyone who would like to do this!!

 

Buddy the Elf : Book Tag


buddytheelf

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well 🙂 Today, I’m bringing a Booktube tag to the blog! This is the Buddy the Elf Book Tag, just like the movie Elf. This was created by Molly @ Magical Molly, I was not tagged but I still wanted to do this, if I don’t get around to filming it! And, it might look cooler on blog format. Anyway, let’s get started!

 

1) 1. ‘Treat everyday like Christmas!’ What’s one book you love to read no matter the time of year?

9781442426702_p0_v5_s260x420

I’ve read this during the summer, during December/Winter, and during Spring. So, no matter what I read it any time.


2) Buddy’s spaghetti.

Who are two book characters who are complete opposites but you think they go so well together?

The ultimate ship I have with characters from another book are Lara Jean from To All the Boys… & Park from Eleanor & Park. They just happen to fall into this question.. 🙂


3) The clausometer.

What’s one book you have 100% fangirl spirit about?

I have fangirl spirit about so many books such as Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall, & Paper Towns by John Green. READ THEMMMMMMM!!!!


4) ‘The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

‘ What recent read do you love so much you just want to sing it’s praises from the rooftops?

tumblr_lwqnu9MWjU1qzc6foo1_500

I’ve recently read Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares and I LOVED IT! The concept was so booknerd worthy. It was great.

7741325


5)’Son of a Nutcracker!’

What book had an ending you didn’t like?

ow-son-of-a-nutcracker_954

There are many books I read that have poor endings, but that doesn’t mean I dislike the book. Paper Towns is my favorite book and that has a bad ending.. But for this question I’m picking Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. WHY RAINBOW WHAT’S THE THREE WORDS. WHAT ARE THEY!!!!

15745753


6. ‘He must be a south pole elf!’

What book character did you make a bad first impression with by mispronouncing their name?

I mispronounce so many names that I’m not sure I have a permanent answer… The only thing I can think of is Professor Trelawney from Harry Potter. I still have a hard time pronouncing that!


7. ‘Santa Claus is coming to TOWN!’

What’s the number one book on your Christmas wish list?

The number one book on my Christmas Wish List is Sandy Hall’s new book because I’m obsessed with her.

24464110
8. Who do you tag?

I tag anyone who wants to do this and…
