The Bedtime Book Tag

A book tag now?! Well, okie day then.

Zach loves to make his own pictures for these tag thingy things and I asked super nicely so...  Thanks bro!

Thanks Clare  for nominating me! (Yes, I've finally decided to get on with it... Yay!)

On to the questions then...

1. A book that kept you up all night.

Well, I'm pretty sure it wasn't ALL night, but when I was reading the Winnie the Horse Gentler  series (by Dandi Daley Mackall) I think I did come pretty close...

2. A book that made you scared to sleep.

Definitely would have to be 100 Cupboards (by N. D. Wilson)... I made the mistake of stopping at the part when that old guy comes out from a room that was supposed to be magically locked with absolutely no way inside! I was kinda freaked out to put it mildly.

3. A book that made you go to sleep.

Hmm, it would have to be The Magic Faraway Tree (By Enid Blyton)... My dear little sisters simply LOVED to play the audio book at night and would often fall asleep before the the disc had finished, and so I was pretty much stuck with listening to it since I couldn't be bothered to turn it off myself.. It was very boring.

4. A book that left you tossing and turning all night in anticipation of its release.

Definitely would've to have been both book eleven and twelve of the The Ranger's Apprentice series (The Lost Stories and The Royal Ranger). I also remember getting super excited for the next Winnie the Horse Gentler book in the series to arrive via the mail (It wasn't exactly released then so I'm not sure if that counts.)

5. A book that has your favourite boy/girl relationship.

 I'm not usually one for books with  romance in them (some are okay though) but out of the few that I have read, my favourite relationship would have to be... Prince Aethelbald and Princess Una from Heartless (by Anne Elisabeth Stengl). The relationship between  Posy and Prince Kyran from The Word Changers (by Ashlee Willis) would probably have to be my second favourite. 

6. A book that would be your worst nightmare to live in.

Well, for me it couldn't really be Divergent (Because everything was "mostly" alright at the beginning) but the next book Insurgent however... If I ever got to choose between going there or staying here via magical portal I think I would just stay here thank-you very much!

7. A book that reminds you of night-time.
For some reason the first book that came to mind was The Hobbit (By J.R.R Tolkien) not exactly sure why...

8. A book that had a nightmare-ish cliffhanger.
The only book I can think of with a cliffhanger that really bugged me (though I wouldn't say it was night-mare-ish) would be The Ranger's Apprentice The Burning Bridge... Poor Will and Halt :(

9. A book you actually dreamed about.

Hmm, I remember being in Dauntless from the book Divergent (by Veronica Roth) which was pretty cool until I died so... Yup. I was also a Ranger once from Ranger's Apprentice (by John Flanagan) which was much cooler ( probably because I didn't die)... Ah yes, that was my favourite dream about a book for a long while.

10. A book monster you wouldn't want to find under your bed. 

I definitely would not want to find the Balrog from the Lord of the Rings... No thanks, no way, nuh uh, nopetity nope nope...

Well, I guess that's it! So I think I'll tag Corey from CJR Odyssey ... Have fun!



  1. I read most of Winnie the Horse Gentler series ..... a long time ago.

    "which was pretty cool until I died so... Yup. I was also a Ranger once from Ranger's Apprentice (by John Flanagan) which was much cooler ( probably because I didn't die)" I could not help laughing.
