I’ve Been Tagged

February 28, 2012 Meme 13

I love Top Ten Tuesday.  It’s the perfect meme for me.  It invoves books (which I love) and lists (which I also love).  Sadly today’s Top Ten List is something I can’t do (see explanation below).  I can’t even make ONE connection between a song and a book.  I was tagged a couple days ago, so in lieu of Top Ten Tuesday I will do this instead.

So the blogosphere has been buzzing with this tagging meme…

 Rules
1 You must post the rules.
2 Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the  people you’ve tagged.
3 Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4 Let them know you’ve tagged them!

I’ve been tagged by Kate .  She’s the reason why I started this blog (and also the reason why I have more TBR books then I’ve ever had before).

Here are the questions:


1. What song would you pick for the soundtrack of the book you’re currently reading?
I can’t do this one.  This is the reason why there is no Top Ten Tuesday today.  I took a test once that tells you if you’re left brained, right brained or whole brained.  The scale is from -40 to 40.  Most people (like 80%) fall between -7 and 7.  I was a -38.  This means I am seriously uncreative and I just can’t make that kind of connection.

2. What drink do you order most at Starbucks?
Mocha Frappuccino no whip.  (Ever wonder why Starbucks can’t use small, medium, large like regular places?)

3. What literary character would you kiss, which one would you marry and which one would you push off a cliff?
I love Luke Brandon from the Shopaholic series, I would kiss and marry him.  I really liked Four from Divergent, but I’m a little old for him.  I’d push a lot of people off a cliff.  But, excluding bad guys cause that’s a given, I’d push Angela off a cliff from Unearthly and Hallowed.  I just didn’t like her.

4. Forget Zombies vs. Unicorns.  Are you Team Robots or Team Mermaid?
I don’t know, I don’t think I’ve read about either, but if I’m forced to chose it’d be Team Robots.  I have a soft spot for Transformers.

5.  What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
One for the Money

6.  If they were to make a movie out of your life, who would you want play your love interest?
Paul Walker.  Ryan Gosling.  Paul Walker.
7.  If you could kidnap an author, which one would it be and what book would you have them write and/or re-write?
This one is easy!  JK Rowling.  I want books about James Potter & his friends, or about Harry’s kids or Dumbledore’s story or more about Tom Riddle or Luna or…  I could go on forever but I’ll stop here.  (I am so excited that she is writing another book, even though it’s not a HP book.)

8. How many books are in your TBR pile?
I never had a TBR pile until I started blogging.  I was always very good about buying, then reading what I bought.  I’m sure that my TBR number will be much lower than most people, but it’s a lot for me.  Books: 13  eBooks: 29  Library Books: 4  Total: 46  The eBook number freaks me out a little.  I wish I hadn’t counted.

9. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Walgreens.  3 Weeks.  It was awful.  And this is coming from someone who has worked for McDonald’s since she was 14. 

10.  I want to paint an accent wall in my bedroom Peacock Blue, what color would you recommend for the other 3 walls? :)
Off white/cream color or a very pale blue. 

11.  What is your favorite board game?

Definitely Monopoly.  Old school Monopoly.  None of that credit card crap.  But we’ve been playing a lot of Settlers of Catan lately because Monopoly is a ruiner.  We take it pretty seriously and it can get pretty vicious. 

Bonus Question: Are you planning on attending BEA this year?  If yes, are you in need of a hotel room?  Because my friend Kim and I are looking for two other bloggers to share.  :)

I’m going to BEA and I’m already sharing the room :)

We’re looking for 2 more bloggers to share the room.  The hotel room is only a couple blocks from the convention center, and we are booked sun – sat.  And it’s gonna be so much fun.

Here are my questions

1. What’s your favorite book to movie?
2. Star Wars old school (Episodes 4-6) or Star Wars new school (Episodes 1-3)
3. Have you ever liked/loved a book but disliked the main character?
4. Who taught you how to read?
5. Truth or Dare?
6. If you could pick one author to write your life story who would it be?
7. Do you read/write fan fiction?
8. What’s your favorite dessert?
9. Amusement Park or Beach?
10. When was the last time you were in a reading rut?
11. Lately it seems like most movies are coming from books or remakes of old movies.  Name one or two movies that should never, ever be remade.

I’m not going to tag anyone.  Feel free to answer them and leave a link and I’ll come check them out!

    Love your answers, although I think you’re more creative than you give yourself credit for. I’m at work now but I’ll answer when I get home tonight. Can’t wait for BEA!!

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      I am good at expanding ideas and improving upon them and modifying them. Not so good trying to come up with my own ideas. I’m so excited about BEA and I keep seeing these countdown things for books so I think I’m gonna hunt one up on google and make one for BEA.

  2. Jenny

    Fun answers. I bet if I took that test I’d be very un-creative too. I like to think I am, though, so I’ll never take the test and just live in ignorant bliss.

    Note to self: Do NOT work at Walgreens. ;)

  3. fakesteph

    SOOOO excited for BEA.

    1. What’s your favorite book to movie?
    Harry potter 1… the magic of that first movie is something I don’t think I’ll ever experience again. (But I’m hoping to love the new Gatsby)

    2. Star Wars old school (Episodes 4-6) or Star Wars new school (Episodes 1-3)
    New school!! sexy cast!

    3. Have you ever liked/loved a book but disliked the main character?
    maybe… but can’t think of an example.

    4. Who taught you how to read?
    My mom and dad.
    5. Truth or Dare?
    Truth.

    6. If you could pick one author to write your life story who would it be?
    john green, because i think he would make it feel beautiful and meaningful.

    7. Do you read/write fan fiction?
    Sometimes Ranger and Morelli make me wish I did, but no.

    8. What’s your favorite dessert?
    all the desserts.

    9. Amusement Park or Beach?
    Beach.

    10. When was the last time you were in a reading rut?
    I’m in a reading panic now, because I got unexpectedly and unfortunately busy and don’t have as much time as i’d like to read.

    11. Lately it seems like most movies are coming from books or remakes of old movies. Name one or two movies that should never, ever be remade.
    tommy boy and gladiator are still perfect.

  4. Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

    I love your answer to #8. I’ve never seen Gladiator but I completely agree with Tommy Boy. You just can’t remake that kind of funny. And sexy cast aside old school Star Wars is way better!

  5. Bittner

    Hey Kim! I’m Court and I’m friends with Kate and Steph! I’m going to start stalking you now, hope you don’t mind!

    Here are instinctual straight from the gut answers to your questions:

    1. What’s your favorite book to movie? The Godfather
    2. Star Wars old school (Episodes 4-6) or Star Wars new school (Episodes 1-3) OLD SCHOOL!!!
    3. Have you ever liked/loved a book but disliked the main character? Not really at least none that I can think of
    4. Who taught you how to read? I have no idea but something tells me it had something to do with the Berenstain Bears
    5. Truth or Dare? Truth, but depending on the question I might lie to you, I’m a chicken but I’m also sneaky!
    6. If you could pick one author to write your life story who would it be?
    Nick Hornby, He would make me sound funnier then I really am

    9. Amusement Park or Beach? Beach
    10. When was the last time you were in a reading rut? probably last fall i think
    11. Lately it seems like most movies are coming from books or remakes of old movies. Name one or two movies that should never, ever be remade. I’m going to go with the first Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Not very original huh, sorry, I’m tired!

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      I loved the Berenstain Bears! I was so sad to hear that the wife died just a couple days ago :(

      I didn’t know The Godfather was a book.

      I also always pick truth, and often times lie. It’s self preservation.

      I’m totally ok with stalking. Stalking = love, right?

  6. Bittner

    P.S. Do you remember Meet the Deedles??? I think that is my favorite Paul Walker!!! Seriously, why is that movie $27 on Amazon?

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      I confess I had to google it, but as soon as saw the trailer I remembered it. The $27 price on Amazon is very puzzling as is the $15 price for VHS (what’s puzzling here is that you can actually still buy VHS).

  7. ashley

    Hmmm I never realized how good looking Paul Walker is this post sure is enlightening and if you ever need a getaway driver when you kidnap JK be sure to hit me up girly!

    It’s like you read through my head! You gaze to understand lots somewhere around this kind of, just like you had written the actual e-book within it something like that. I am you can use with just a few Per-cent to be able to strain what it’s all about dwelling somewhat, even so in lieu of in which, that is certainly superb website. An excellent read through. I am going to undoubtedly be back.
