The Entertainer Book Tag

(Note: This tag is stolen from my dearie Jade. I am guilty beyond reasonable doubt; I am willing to pay the price of this crime. ^___^ )

It’s a Monday morning and my work email is (surprisingly) quiet and empty. Perhaps like a little street in a province at 12:30 AM. So I decided to tag myself on The Entertainer Book Tag which I enjoyed reading in my dearie’s blog! (If you want eloquent and emotive poetry, funny and heartfelt and sometimes grim fan fiction and fiction, you better follow her! Come on! Do it noooow! 😀 )

It has been forever since I wrote for a tag and about books, which is a pity! So here I am! Answering these five bookish questions! Let’s goooo!

1.) Your favorite form of reading (ebook, audiobook, etc.)?

I’m definitely a librocubicularist. I prefer my bed soft, my coffee hot, and my book printed! (Although majority of my read books are via ebook because I got no book budget before. Please forgive me, books. -_- )

2.) If you could trade places with any other MC in their fictional world facing the same problems as them, who would you trade places with?

(Another confession: I googled MC because, seriously, what is MC? I feel so old. HAHA. For those who are so uninformed like me, it means Main Character. *facepalm* )

I think I would choose to be Annie of The Next Person You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom . I have yet to read this book (courtesy of my dearie Jade!!! ❤ ) but I know Annie is the little child Eddie saved in The Five People You Meet in Heaven .

I am excited to know what happened to her; I am sure she will be someone I can relate with because Mitch has that talent–creating characters that will resound to me. ❤

3.) Favorite Movie?

Geez. I am not a movie person but I really love Anne Hathaway’s Princess Diaries!

I can’t remember today if this preference has been updated. So please, don’t judge! 😁

4.) What do you wish you could see more of in books?

I want to see more realistic, odd but inspiring and touching characters. Like Alice of Still Alice by Lisa Genova and Ove of A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. 🙂 These books are truthful, funny, and inspiring without bending with common novel cliches. 🙂

5.) Favorite first line from a book?

“When I was three and Bailey four, we had arrived in the musty little town, wearing tags on our wrists which instructed – ‘To Whom It May Concern’ – that we were Marguerite and Bailey Johnson Jr., from Long Beach, California, en route to Stamps, Arkansas, c/o Mrs. Annie Henderson.” – Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

That’s it, friends and poets! You can (also) steal this tag with my consent! 😀 Cheers!

The Lovely BonesStill Alice

Every Day (Every Day, #1)

I also published recently my Best Book Read from the past 12 months. 🙂

2. What is your most anticipated release for this year?

I have written a blog a month ago that contains my answer for this question.

Yeps. I am so excited for the upcoming release of Nicholas Sparks’ new novel, See Me and Mitch Albom’s new book, The Magic String of Frankie Presto.

See Me will be out on October 13 and The Magic Strings will be released on November 15! I just can’t wait!!!

3. What is your favorite way to read: physical book or e-reader?

Uhm. I love the smell of physical books but I have no enough budget to buy a lot of that, so more of my current books are ebooks. It is also more convenient for me as I do most of my reading at night, when all the lights are off. 🙂

4. If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you want to be stranded with?

I would want to be stranded in an island with my dad or with my mom because I think they are the most reliable and dependable persons in my life.

5. What is your favorite show to binge watch on Netflix?

I am not quite sure if we have Netflix here in the Philippines. Sorry.

6. Name a book that you have a love/hate relationship with.

That would be Message in a BottleDivergent series and The Hunger Games trilogy. I do love the stories of these books but I hate their endings. Yeah, really.

Message in a Bottle

7. How many books have you bought this month?

I am saving a lot of money for the upcoming Sparks and Albom books so I would say I have no plans of buying any book this month. 🙂

8. Favorite summer treat?

Green mango shakes! Actually, I drink green mango shakes in any season! It’s just refreshingly sour. 😀

9. Favorite reading spot?

I am a librocubicularist. A reader in bed. 😉

10. If you could spend the day with your favorite author, who would it be and what would you do?
That would be with Nicholas Sparks and Mitch Mitch Albom.

With Sparks, I just want to visit North Carolina with him as almost, if not all, of his novels are set in his hometown. I want to see the spots that he has mentioned on his stories.:)

With Albom, I just want to have some coffee and talk to him about anything and everything under the sun. I would love to hear his views about life and love and everything. 🙂
