I saw this over at BooksAndLala‘s youtube channel and it sounded like so much fun I’ve decided to do it here on my blog as well. This tag is a combined edition of two different ones from Rachel Reads and Books and Looks.
The idea behind this tag is that you have 18 questions/statements and you answer each of them with a book title. I have decided to answer solely with the books on my physical shelves, to make it a bit harder for myself (not that this isn’t hard already haha)
1. Title that’s the story of your life
“The Perks of Being a Wallflower” – Okay, that one was surprisingly easy. I am definitely a wallflower haha.
2. Title that describes your perfect weekend
I’m trying to find something with reading in the title but I don’t have anything… So I’m going to have to go with “Let’s Get Lost“, because I’d love to get lost (in a story? haha).
3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on
I’d love to go on the adventure: “Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe“, if that means I get to go with Ari and Dante to discover the secrets because that sounds like a lot of fun!
4. Title you want to name your child
I’m not going to call my kid “The Maze Runner“, “Legend” or “Heartless” or something like that. It’s really hard to find a one-word title. I’m going to have to go with “Scarlet“, or maybe “Illuminae” because that’s quite pretty I think.
5. Title of your ideal job
Titles I can come up with: “Red Queen“, “The Martian” and “The Book Thief“. Though Red Queen and The Martian sounds pretty cool job descriptions, I think I’m going to steal some books.
6. Title of a place you’d like to visit
I don’t have any city/country related book titles, except Auschwitz, and let’s not go there. I do own however a copy of “City of Fallen Angels“, which I think is a well enough description of Los Angeles. I’d love to go back to Los Angeles!
7. Title of your love life
UHm haha I think I’m going to have to go with “Silent to the Bone” because my love life is non-existent. “Radio Silence” is a good option as well.
8. Questions you ask yourself
“Am I Normal Yet?”
9. Title of a kingdom you want to rule OR name
Options are: “Narnia” (which is pretty much taken and also not exactly the title of the book), “Crooked Kingdom” and “Hollow City“. I choose Crooked Kingdom because that sounds pretty cool!
10. Title you’d name your band.
If it were like metal/hard rock, I’d go with “The Death Cure“. “Requiem” also sounds pretty cool for a band name, but I don’t know what type of music they’d play. For a soft indie/folk band, I’d go with “Pigeon English“. I think I’m going to go with the last one. I am also a little bit in love with Lala’s idea of a band called “Eleanor & Park” because that sounds like something I’d definitely listen to.
This is part 2 (the other tag)
1. What is your current mood?
“Great Expectations” is as close as I get to how I feel right now. I’m excited and hopeful so I think it fits.
2. What is your favorite color?
The only book I own with a color in the title is “Scarlet” so I guess I’m going to go with that.
3. Describe your
BookTube bookblogger bestie.
Man, this one’s hard, but I own this Dutch book called “Lieveling“, which translates to something like “darling” or “favourite” and I think that’s quite perfect!
4. How do you feel about 2017 so far?
2017 has been a pretty good year so far (for me at least) so I think I’m going to go with “Everything is Illuminated“?? Because I can’t find anything better haha.
NO NO WAIT: “My Most Excellent Year” 😀
5. Where do you want to travel?
Okay, this is pretty much the same question as before so I skip it!
6. What is your relationship status?
Happy and single, but I don’t have a book called that so. I do own a book called “Forever” but I don’t own one called “Alone”. That’s a bummer haha.
Okay I got something (this took me forever): “Enders” because I ended my last relationship (that’s the closest I could find. I literally own nothing else that could describe my single-ness).
7. What are your summer plans?
Gosh, I really do not own enough books to answer all these questions. I GOT IT. I have this Dutch how-to book about writing called “Schrijven, Kreng” which translates to “Write, Bitch!” (yeah rude I know) but I am going to write this summer!
8. What are your 2017 goals?
Same answer as before but also “Graduation Day“? (and also the other books in the Testing Trilogy; “The Testing“, “Independent Study“) Although that won’t be this year but beginning of next year. BUT I WILL GRADUATE in the upcoming 12 months!
Okay that was a lot harder than I thought! I own a lot of fantasy novels with fancy titles such as “Daughter of Smoke and Bone”, “An Ember in the Ashes” and “The Bone Season”, which are all really nice but don’t really help me with this tag!
How would you describe your life with only the titles of books on your shelf? What’s the title of your ideal job in book titles? If you want to do this tag, go for it! It’s lots of fun!
