When I was young, we didn’t have internet in our home. Trust me, I’m not that old, it’s just that my parents didn’t think the internet was essential until my sisters got older and needed it for school and such. That being said, I didn’t play video games growing up. No Nintendo or Wii for me. The most I got was a hand-me down Tamagotchi from my eldest sister.
All this to say that I still am not that into video games and I haven’t played the famous Animal Crossing that has taken over the world.
Am I still doing the tag? Absolutely! Because we are here for books.
Many thanks to the lovely blogger Michaela @ Journey into Books for tagging me!
Past Villager – Who is a character you found when you were younger that still has a place in your heart?
I wasn’t much of a reader as a kid-kid and to say one of the Pevensie siblings would be cheating because I was more into the movies. I guess the first book character that really stuck with me would be Amy Flowers from the Accidentally series by Lisa Papademetriou.
I think it was the fact that she blushed so easily was super relatable to me hahaha
Blather’s Blatherings – Recommend a historical fiction book that you think everybody should read.
The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner
This is an amazing story set in the early 20th century (possibly late 19th century) that follows the adventures of two sisters. It is infused with Jewish folklore and tradition in the historic context. The writing is gorgeous and the plot is absolutely riveting! I cannot recommend this book enough! READ IT!
Celeste’s Wish – What is a future book release you wish you could read now?
A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir
I have waited long and patiently for this book, but given the chance I would read this book right now and tune out the rest of the world just to be destroyed by this book!
Timmy and Tommy – What is your favourite sibling relationship in a book?
I adore my sisters, but is there ever a time I wish we could be more like these siblings? The answer is yes. They are just so loving and messy and funnt. My sisters are as well, but there is just something so quintessentially honourable and endearing about these siblings that I would love to be a part of their family.
The Easter Bunny – A popular book character that you’re not a big fan of.
My oh my what could be my answer….Aelin Galanthinyus or however the hell you spell her name. I hate her.
And her Rowan Whitehorn. Bleh. Trash trash trash.
Nook’s Loans – An author you’d give all your money to.
I would? I already do give my money to the following authors:
I own very large collections for all of these authors and I hope to keep growing them!
The Sisters Able – What is your favourite fictional family (found or otherwise)?
The Rampion Crew!
I love this group of children so much! I think they are the first found family I encountered in my reading journeys and I am still so in love with them! Having recently reread the books, I enjoyed going back and re-falling in love with these personalities.
It’s a C+ – What is a book trope that you don’t like that keeps popping up?
There were golden specks in [their] eyes
I used to be a sucker for this trope, but now it is just plain annoying to me. Especially since this is how authors make brown eyes “sexier.” If there is not that glitter than they’re just plain brown and that is so unfair to the majority brown-eyes population that deserve their eye-colour to be romanticized too without the over-used gold glimmers.
Super obvious secret identities
If the characters are looking for lost royalty obviously the main character is said lost royal!!!!!!!!!! I’m being a little hypocritical here because hello the Lunar Chronicles is exactly that plot for the first book, but still this trope is so obvious can we just not in new books! Or at least make it harder to decipher!!!!!!
The Wedding Camel – What is your favourite book set in a land far away from yours?
The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso is the most recent book I read that is set in a world far different from my own! It is so cutthroat and intriguing at the same time! I loved the world so much and I bought the companion series for the sole joy of re-immersing myself into that world!
What Would Dodos Do? – A fictional land you wish you could fly away to at any moment?
Narnia. No doubt about it. I always tell my family that given the opportunity to go to Narnia, I wouldn’t even hesitate to take the chance. It makes my mom a little sad…but it’s the truth XD
Anyone who is interested in playing! Especially the Animal Crossings fans out there!
Let me know what you think! Have you played Animal Crossing? Do you play a lot of video games? What book would you love to become a video game?
I laughed so hard when you mentioned Aelin and Rowan 😂 the books weren’t that bad but that’s solely because there are other characters who I rooted for way more than I did for the main character. Also! I’ll definitely be doing this tag soon!! I really like the questions

I was all ready to comment “I didn’t know you played Animal Crossing” but you caught me out on that one. We are both in the no animal crossing boat! If it was both free and available for PC I would check it out but since it’s not *shrug*
OMG the golden specks in the eyes!!! Is this even possible?? In a normal human?? And oh no, poor mom XD I’m sure she’d be bolting the closet door if she could.

Hahaha I got you! Even if it was avaiable on PC I don’t think I’d play I’m just not a virtual game player like that XD
The golden specks myth needs to go!!
I didn’t understand any of the references in here, but I did really enjoy your answers, haha. I hear you soooo much on the golden flecks. I didn’t realize how muchhhhhhh that appears. But I’m more than happy to deal with just regular ole eyes for the rest of my reading careers. And omg all those Lu books. I love it. Great post, Rendz!! 🙂
