i met the awesomeFantasy Angel during the wordpress blogging course back in the spring. since her blog focuses on books, thought it would be a cool idea to do a book vs movie post. divergent was due to come out, so we settled on that one for our first tag team (whoomp there it is) post!

since im still new at the guest posting thing, i never know how much to type, so thought i’d embellish a little more #onhere.

The Mortal Instruments series is unfortunately over, but we still have The Dark Artifices to look forward to! To make everyone even more excited and impatient for Cassandra Clare’s new Shadowhunter trilogy a new paragraph was added to the synopsis on her website:

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could…

I Can’t Believe I Won The Liebster Blog Award again!

Hello everybody! Okay so I am really excited because I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award – an award for blogs who have 200 followers or less – by Always Opinionated Girl…..if you want to see the specific nomination post (and haven’t after I reblogged and tweeted about it ;) ….) here it is! Now before we started, I wanted to say congratulations to Always Opinionated Girl and thank you so much! Now for the rules and questions:

Rules:

1. Post the award on your blog.

2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.

3. Nominate 5 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than or equal to 200 followers.

4. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

 

So let’s get started with the Q&A:

Which fictional character are you most like? Hermione Granger from Harry Potter

Which fandoms are you in? Oh gosh that’s alot….to name a few: the Harry Potter fandom, the Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices (the shadowhunter fandom), the Percy Jackson fandom….and so much more

What is your favourite book cover? eeh…I don’t have a specific kind but if I had to pick one from the top of my head, it would be the new Harry Potter covers because it’s another, newer generation’s time to read the books so it seems fitting that there would be another, newer version of the book covers

Which 5 books would you take with you to a desert island? Can I make which 5 series I would take with me, b/c I would take the Harry Potter series (of course), The Mortal Instruments books, the Percy Jackson books, The Heroes of Olympus books and the Women’s Murder Club books

What is your favourite children’s picture book? Oh…I don’t even remember many picture books other than the Dr. Seuss ones…..so I guess those? All of them….again, I can’t pick one!

What do you like most and like least about book blogging? My favorite thing about blogging is knowing that there are people who want to hear your opinions and actually take that into account….my least favorite part is trying to write the posts in time…I have an editorial calendar but I don’t follow it too much, lol :)

When was the last time you cried reading a book? When I read Now I’ll Tell You Everything by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

Which book are you most embarrassed to say you haven’t read? None.

Why and when did you decide to start your blog? I started Avid Reader in 2012, literally two years ago, on Weebly and then last January, after thinking of it more several months, Avid Reader moved to where we are now, on WordPress and that’s where it’ll stay as far as I know. The blog started because I wanted a place to share my thoughts on books and their movies and be able to discuss that with others and that’s still what I want so thank you guys for making that dream come true.

What are three things about you that not many people know? I don’t think there is anything about me that not many people know, at least that I’m willing to share…

What one book would you recommend I read? Oh gosh….I have so many….I can’t pick just one…If you want fantasy, you should read Invisible Justice by Kim Jewell, it’s the first book in what is a still developing series. If you want crime/mystery, you should read 1st to Die by James Patterson, it’s also the first in a series but the 13 book series is done unfortunately.

 

Okay now for my questions (they will be similar to the questions I had to answer because those were good):

Which fictional character are you most like?

What is your favourite book cover?

What is your favorite book?

Who is your top three favorite authors?

Which 5 books would you take with you to a desert island?

What is your favourite childhood book?

What do you like most and like least about book blogging?

When was the last time you cried reading a book?

Why and when did you decide to start your blog?

Which type of genre is your favorite?

What is your favorite book turned movie?
