Sweater Tag

It’s tag season!  Kenzie has tagged me twice, so first is the Sweater Tag.

It’s about choosing books based on how alike they are to the sweater descriptions.

Let’s begin.

Rules

  • Give the person who tagged you a never-ending supply of cookies (or just thank them – either works)
  • Answer all the questions and use the blog graphic for this tag somewhere in your post
  • Pass along the tag to at least five other people
  • Wear a sweater (okay, this is optional…but why wouldn’t you want to??)

*Flings magical, never-ending cookies at Kenzie*

That should suffice for that rule. 🙂

Tag originally made by Mary

‘Tag five other people’ Hmm…I don’t understand that phrase… 😛  (My tagging circle is small and already tagged.)

And I am wearing a sweater, despite the weather being vaguely Summerish, but I can get away with it because I don’t live in a desert.  Or the tropics.  I live on a stormy island in Thren, instead.

The Questions

— Fuzzy sweater. . .(a book that is the epitome of comfort)

Harry Potter or 1930’s mysteries…

— Striped sweater. . .(book which you devoured every line of) —

The Last Unicorn  by Peter S. Beagle

It’s like a fairy tale, but there’s sort of an extra special, serious meta feel to it? At least to me there is.  Very distinct.

— Ugly Christmas sweater. . .(book with a weird cover)

Any Agatha Christie book published in the 70’s.  Really, any book published in the 70’s.

— Cashmere sweater. . .(most expensive book you’ve bought) —

Stand Still Stay Silent Book 1  by Minna Sundberg

I bought it for $60 or $70?  It’s a graphic novel, signed, and was shipped from Finland.  Very expensive.  It was the first print run of her webcomic, a post-apocalyptic tale set in Nordic lands.  With monsters and fantasy.

— Hoodie. . .(favorite classic book) —

Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott

Knights, conflicts between Anglo-Saxons and Normans, romance, castle sieges…and I just realized it does have a love triangle, sorta, but it’s nothing like what permeates YA books today. XD

— Cardigan. . .(book that you bought on impulse) —

Ummm…I don’t buy many books… Maybe my most impulsive purchase was these Polish-English dictionaries from the thrift store.  I’m not sure whether to keep them or not. I haven’t learned any Polish at all or looked at them.  I just like the idea of learning it.  Rather unrealistic. (Back to the thrift store then…)

— Turtleneck sweater. . .(book from your childhood) —

The Brambly Hedge books by Jill Barklem

Illustrated storybooks with Victorian mice living in expansive, intricate homes inside of trees.

Or, if you want a proper novel it would be Dealing with Dragons by Patricia Wrede

That one actually set off a bit of my first story’s tone…

— Homemade knitted sweater. . .(book that is Indie-published) —

That would be Stand Still Stay Silent again.  I don’t think I have any other Indie published books.

— V-neck sweater. . .(book that did not meet your expectations) —

The Throne of Glass sequels by Sarah J. Maas

You had all this epic worldbuilding and plot going on, and then you killed it with dumb romances and inconsistent characterization.  Drat.

I keep ranting about it in my mind sometimes.

— Argyle sweater. . .(book with a unique format) —

I have some world atlases…?

— Polka dot sweater. . .(a book with well-rounded characters) —

I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PICK THAT!

What if I haven’t read a book with well-rounded characters lately?

Maybe…something by P.G. Wodehouse.  Those are very well-rounded characters. >:P

(No, they’re crazy and hilarious caricatures of people in early 20th Century England! And sometimes America.)

The End

I guess.

No retags, as always.

I feel like I need to read more books.  Oh, well.

I should just write some more instead.

    I will rant with you about Throne of Glass! Gah, that whole thing infuriates me to my core.
