So I've moved...

Yes yes, I've made the switch. I decided to move over to Wordpress after thinking about this for over several months. 

I'm not going to delete this blog, but there won't be any new content on here. If you want to keep up with my posts, please check out my new blog at Thank you all for the support!

Bookish Academy Awards Tag!

So back when the Oscars where going on, bookadooodles created a tag about bookish academy awards. I saw Andreea from the moonlit bookshelf do this tag here on blogospheare and thought I would join in on the fun. So here we go!

1.Best Male Protagonist - Peter Pan from Peter Pan or Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie. He's the boy that never grows up and truly deserves this "award". 

2.Best Female Protagonist - Stargirl from Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I love how incredibly unique she is. One of my favorite literary characters ever. 

3. Best Plot Twist - Clockwork Princess. There weren't any mind blowing twists, but this whole book was an emotional roller coaster ride that I had to mention it. 

4. Best Book Cover - Pride and Prejudice. I love this cover! Don't know why, but I do. I think it's because it fits the book perfectly. 

5. Best Male and Female Sidekick- Isaac from The Fault in Our Stars and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson Series. Need I say more? 

6. Most Unique Plot/World - Middle Earth from The Lord of the Rings. This world is incredible and the world building in these books is mind-blowing. 

7. Best Book-to-Movie Adaptation - Catching Fire. Even though I'm not much of a fan of these books, Catching Fire is my favorite of the series and the movie was amazing. 

8. A book that would work well in animated format - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This is pretty self-explanatory. 

9. A writer you discovered for the first time - C.S. Lewis.

10. Best Action in a Book - Divergent. The action is written perfectly in this series. 

11. Best Music in a book-to-movie adaptation - The Book Thief. Confession time. I haven't read the book but I did see the movie. John Williams composed the music, so it's no surprise that I loved it. 

12. Best Novella or Short Book - The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This was a charming story about imagination. I cannot wait to see the movie when it comes out.  

13. Best Stand-Alone - The Great Gatsby. Duh. 

14. Best Historical Fiction or Non-Fiction - Between Shades of Gray. Favorite Historical Fiction novel, ever. 

So that was the tag. Hoped you enjoyed it! If anyone wants to do this, feel free to do it. I tagged you. :)

Top Five Books I Want to Read ASAP - Tag (Original)

Hello everyone! Today I'm doing something quite different, I'm creating a tag! This tag is very basic. Just pick five books that you want to read ASAP. They can be books you own, books you want to re-read, books from the library, or books you want to buy. So here are my top five books. 

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This is one I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read. It's normally a book that's required reading at school, but it was never required for me so I never got around to it. I own a copy and I really have no excuse for not reading it, so I really need to get on this. 

2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I love Oscar Wilde. Anything that he's said, I most likely will have quoted at least two times already. It's shocking that I haven't read any of his plays or novels. I'm making it a point to read this one this year. 

3. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan. This one I should have read by now. I picked it up a while back, but couldn't get into it. Have I mentioned before how bad I am at finishing series? 

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is due for a re-read. Not because the trailer or the movie is coming out... but just for personal reasons. I miss this book and the story. Once I finish one of the books I'm currently reading, I'm probably going to dive into this novel again. 

5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Do you know how guilty I feel about not having read this book? I could never get into it. I got about half way and had to put it down because it was putting me in a reading slump. I may never read this book. Or maybe when I do read it I won't like it. Who knows...

So those are my top five books, let me know what yours are! Leave a link to your post in the comments below. I would love to see what books are on your list. 

I Tag...

- Piper  from Piper's Book Nook 
- Rachael  from Rachael Turns Pages 

If you want to do this tag, just do it! I tag everyone!
