A big thanks to Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts who tagged me to do this post.
A character’s appearance you misread or imagined differently
It’s not often that I misread or imagine characters differently appearance wise. I think more often than not I just stop imagining a character physically partway through reading just because it’s not my priority anymore, I’m too invested in the plot and just what the characters are doing.
A character name you’ve been pronouncing incorrectly
What character name have I not been pronouncing incorrectly. I have such a problem with this—especially because a lot of fantasy and dystopian series contain main characters with unique unheard of names. Off the top of my head I can say like all characters from An Ember in the Ashes along with Isla from Isla and the French Kiss.
An overused trope that is your guilty pleasure
The fake relationship trope is such a guilty pleasure for me. I know fake relationship novels are super predictable—the two faking the relationship will end up liking each other—but I can’t help reading them.
A cliched character type you enjoy viewing on screen than reading about
So like this character way more in television shows than I do in books, and that’s the best friend who has a crush on the main character. Think Simon from The Mortal Instruments Series except not because he bothered me in the tv show. I just feel like I root for the friend a little bit more in the television show—who sometimes actually ends up with their crush—but in the book I always get annoyed with them for getting in the way of the characters I want to get together.
A word or phrase you learned because of its use in a book
I’ve actually learned a lot of words from reading and watching Pride and Prejudice. Off the top of my head I’m thinking ardently. I don’t know if it’s used in the novel, but I’ve heard it the hundreds of times I’ve watched the movie—Kiera Knightly version of course.
Have you ever not read or completed a required reading book for school?
I just want to put it out there that just because I like to read does not mean I like to read everything or be forced to read. I’ve been better about skipping required reading in college, but I constantly did not read or finish books for class in high school.
Have you ever (or wanted to) skipped a chapter from the POV of a character you weren’t interested in?
I’ve never fully skipped a chapter from a point of view I wasn’t interested in, but I have skimmed chapters to get through a certain point of view. I know I’ve done this with the A Song of Ice and Fire series and I’ll Give You the Sun.
Have you ever cancelled social plans to read a book
I don’t think I’ve ever cancelled plans, but I have avoided making plans because I was in the middle of reading a really good book.
Like always feel free to skip this if you don’t want to do it or if you’ve already done it ! And if I didn’t tag you but you want to do it feel free!
