Tagged, 2nd time!




I was just tagged by Jessi @ Auntie Spinelli Reads! 


-I was tagged last Sunday, but I'm just now getting around to posting.

The Rules:
1. Answer the questions that the tagger set for in their post.

2. Create 11 questions for the people you tag to answer.

3. Tag 11 people and link them to your post.

4. Let them know you tagged them.

5. Include these rules and the person who tagged you in your post.


Now for the questions she has set for me:

1. Have you read The Fever Series yet? If no, then why I ask, 

WHY?!?!!!!

No, I have not read The Fever Series, I have the first book for my Nook, but my Nook is messed up right now.


2. In the case of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?

Probably a baseball bat.


3. Since everyone asks what your favorite books are, my question is:

 What are your LEAST favorite? Were there any you downright hated
 
(with the fire of a thousand suns)??

I don't really have a book that I hated.


4. What upcoming book would you beat someone up for?

Bitterblue! and Destined! and Enticed! but mostly Bitterblue.


5. Here's a big pet peeve of mine - love triangles! What are your thoughts? Like, dislike, detest? Reasons?

Bad endings? lol, I don't know, I really don't like it when books end 

bad, or not like I think they should. Cliff hangers I can handle, most of 

the time. But I really hate it when a book ends badly.


6. Vampires or Werewolves?

Team Vampires all the way!


7. Are there any blogging secrets you'd like to divulge? 


I don't really know a lot about computer stuff, but I was messing around 

with it one day and I found out how to make the things on the sidebar like 

the blog buttons scroll up. I found out here:



8.When a book makes you angry, what do you do? Throw it (like 

me...)? Walk away? Nothing?

 I stop reading it and walk away.


9. What is your all-time favorite book cover?

That's hard, there's a whole bunch of covers that I like, I am 

notorious for getting books just for their covers.


10. Kindle or Nook? Or neither??

I have the Nook, but I'd like to try the Kindle. I though I'd like the touch 

screen but I don't like it as much as I thought I would.


11. THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF ALL: Toilet paper over or under?

LOL, that is hilarious! I don't really think about that, lol!

Wishlist Wednesday #15


Wishlist Wednesday, hosted by Pen to Paper to post books that you have been really wanting for a long time.   
 Bitterblue (The Seven Kingdoms, #3)
Goodreads:
Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck’s reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle—disguised and alone—to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past. Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck’s reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn’t yet identified, holds a key to her heart. 

I can not wait for this book! It comes out in May!
