So I decided to bring the tag to the book blogging world, because I am a rebel like that.
Epic Reads Book Tag
If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?I would invite Megan Whalen Turner of The Queen's Thief series, and the Queen's Thief himself, Eugenides. I would serve them tea and scones, because I think Gen would like those, and their easy to eat one handed.
What book do you wish the author would write the prequel for?Maybe the Demon King by Cinda Willians Chima, because I want to know about Han's life on the street. But I gotta be honest, I would love a book about James Potter at Hogwarts too!
Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?)So, I was thinking about characters whose relationships I didn't approve of/love/were single and I thought of Tobias Eaton from the Divergent series and of Simone Lewis from The Mortal Instruments series. So my thinking is, let's set Four up with Izzy Lightwood so that Simone can date either Kath from Fangirl or Luna lovegood from Harry Potter. I think all three of those relationships might have a chance to work out. But if Izzy was too broken for Four, maybe he could date Susan Caraway from Stargirl.
If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them who is it and what would it be?Well, my favorite author is Megan Whalen Turner (hence why I'd invite her for tea.) I think I would say to her, "I'm ready for the Prince of Attolia to be a book." If you haven't read The Thief, do so now. It is one of the most brilliant books you'll ever read!
What book made you a reader and why?
|Buy on Amazon|
Incendio! Your bookshelf just caught fire! What is the one book you would save?
|My Personalized, Autographed|
Copy of Go Teen Writers!
Next I would grab my autographed copy of Allegiant. It is also on my bookshelf/nightstand because I don't count dystopian as sci-fi or fantasy for shelving purposes.
Then I would grab my entire Queen's Thief series, along with their personalized book ends. That's right. In fifth grade pottery I made bookends specific to my favorite series, and that is how said series is displayed in my bedroom (on top of my "real" bookshelf.)
*It should be noted that my Kindle, while having a place on my bookshelf, is currently in my messenger bag, and so not at risk of burning in a bookshelf fire.
Which dystopian world would you want to live in and why?My original answer was the world of Legend by Marie Lu, because I might survive that one, but then I wondered if Cinder counted? Because it would totally be Cinder. And then I saw the Unwind books on my Goodreads Five-Star bookshelf (thank goodness that's not the one burning, because then I would need to save ALL THE BOOKS!!) and I thought that would be an interesting world. True, I might get unwound, but I might be able to help get that world back on it's feet, morality wise.
What is your most Epic Read of all time?

Even if you don't read them
they'll look impressive on your shelf.
Person: Are you a Lord of the Rings fan?
Me; I wouldn't say I'm a Lord of the Rings fan. But I've read all the books. And seen all the movies. And one time I marathoned the extended editions in one day. So . . . I guess you could say I'm a fan.
Person: *nods and backs away* *slowly*
But I have friends that marathon LoTR every New Years Eve and went to the Hobbit in full costume. Compared to them, I am not a fan.

If you want to be tagged, feel free to do it! If I tagged you and you don't want to play, I won't mind (too much.) (One of the biggest problems I face is wanting to use smiley and winky faces inside parenthetical statements and then feeling like I'm giving my face a double chin. ;) ) <--- See what I mean?
