The Supporter Award

I was nominated by the wonderful Bibi @ Bibi’s Book Blog, thank you so much, Bibi, for nominating me!  If you have not checked her out please do.

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you and link back to their post.
  • Answer the 4 “First” questions.
  • Come up with 4 new “First” questions or just use the same ones from your nomination.
  • Nominate your first follower who is still active and interacting with you.
  • Nominate up to 4 other bloggers
  • Make sure to link back to the original post by The book prescription so I can see all your answers!
  • Feel free to add the badge to your blog

 

THE 4 “FIRST” QUESTIONS:

1- First memory of a story.

The Christmas Kitten

The Christmas Kitten.

This is the first book that I can remember sitting down with.  I lived with my mom when I was little and and she has dyslexia so reading was not a thing that was pushed.  Then as I drifted towards it I had a ton of “girl” books shoved at me, but I had no interest in reading Sweet Valley High or Baby-Sitters Club. So my love for reading did not happen until I picked up the first book I purchased with my allowance.

2- First book you bought with your own money.

The Wrong Number

The Wrong Number By R.L. Stine.

I absolutely loved this book and then went on to read the majority of the Fear Street books that was out. I read everyone that I could get my hands on. This really through people off especially in school. It was believed that I had issues reading but in reality I just did not like anything they kept shoving at me.

3- First book that made you cry.

I do not like books that make me cry and I usually avoid any that will.  The only book that comes to mind is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

4- First book that you didn’t finish.

I used to think that I had to finish every book that I started. Over the years I have hate read a lot of books.  The first book that I just could not finish was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’m sure one of these posts will include a rant about why I dislike this book so much.

My First Supporter:

Brittany @ Perfectly Tolerable

Brittany has been so wonderful since I started in March.

MY OTHER NOMINEES:

Maddie @ Munch Reviews

Pages and Pugs

Lana @ Welcome To Our Campfire

As I really like these questions, I don’t want to change them. I think they paint a nice picture of how I started, and I’d like to learn the same about my nominees.

TAG

Seven Deadly Sins Tag

This tag was originally done by BookishlyMalyza!  I was tagged by Bibi @ Bibi’s Book Blog.  Thank you, Bibi for tagging me. You should go check her out!

Greed: What is the most expensive book that you own? What is the least expensive book that you own?

Most expensive book has to be my special edition copy of  The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I tried looking up the price of this book and Amazon would not let me I purchased it back in 2008. The least expensive book I own has to be my copy of The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t: (to say nothing of the Mummy That Was, and the Cat in the Jar) (The Parasol Protectorate). I only paid .99¢

Gluttony: What book or books have you shamelessly devoured many times?

It’s been a while since I have just picked up a book to re-read. My TBR pile makes me feel guilty about considering doing that 😉 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

Sloth: What book or book series have you neglected out of sheer laziness?

The Wheel of Time.  There are just so many books…and they are so long… But I am breaking down and purchasing the first book.  Have read the first 5 and I have 2-5 as e-books and I find it so hard to pick up and stick with an ebook.

Pride: What book or books do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?

I really don’t do this.  I was criticized when I was a teenager for some of the books that I liked to read. “It wasn’t normal” It is only in the past few years that I have found people to really talk to about books.

Lust: What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?

I love characters that are strong and witty.

Envy: What books would you most like to receive as a gift?

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan
The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls by Emilie Autumn
Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

The one that comes it to mind is Sarah J Maas.  I really like reading her books but there are some things that just drive me crazy.

If you want to do this please feel tagged.  And to those, I tag please do not feel obligated to do this if you do not want to.
