The Food Book Tag

By my order, The Week of Blog Tags shall be extended, in which I shall gift you with a blog tag this one final day (to finish my final tag). Therefore, I shall still not tag anyone, else there be a multitude of tags. If you wish to be tagged, you are! Thus ends the amended decree.

Fin reminded me of the blog tag I’d missed! It’s one she’d (Fin @ Spiel) tagged me for, The Food Book Tag. Thank you, Fin (both for the tag and for reminding me about it)! I promise you, my poor little tag-whelmed readers, that this is the last blog tag. until I get tagged again, of course..

1) What’s a fictional food that you would die for?
Hmm…that’s a good question. I’ve now decided that food should be described more in books. I don’t know that I’d die for any fictional food, because then I’d be dead and wouldn’t be able to eat it, but I would love to have blue chocolate chip cookies from Percy Jackson. Or ambrosia from the same book.

2) POPCORN!!! A book that reads like a movie.
I’m not sure if I’ve read a book that’s this descriptive. My favorite descriptions in books are from Shannon Hale’s Goose Girl series. I just remember a few descriptions that were really beautifully written from that series.

3) CHOCOLATE!!! Your guilty pleasure book.
I love chocolate…but a guilty pleasure book? Probably Brandon Sanderson because it’s completely amazing but they’re long, so I end up feeling guilty for not doing any of my chores or homework or anything because I’m so sucked into the books. It’s wonderful. And horrible at the same time.

4) CHIPS!!! Your favorite flavour genre.
Fantasy, sci-fi, and fractured fairy tales.

5) CAKE!!! An absolutely delicious book that you ate read in one sitting.
Ooh, there’s way too many to choose from. I’ve read a lot of books in one sitting…but some of my favorite memories of doing this has been with Harry Potter books…that was lovely and delicious.

6) PIZZA!!! A book that has your favourite toppings things in it.
Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasy books (both Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive) because they have awesome magic and even awesome world building and cultures and I absolutely love them.

7) CUPCAKES!!! Your favourite short story (because cupcakes are small so they equal a short story)
Aww, that’s so cute. Umm…my favorite short story…probably fairy tales, if those count. I really like (and these are all the original/Grimm versions) Rapunzel, The Little Mermaid, The Twelve Huntsmen, and Bearskin. Funny how all those are ones I want to write retellings of (except Bearskin, I read it since I wanted to read someone else’s retelling of it).

I also like short stories with a twist at the end…like The Lottery. Except that one’s kind of creepy.

8) TEA!!! Your favourite story to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea.
Welll I don’t drink tea but probably something winter-y since I’m thinking hot chocolate now. What’s a winter-y book? Anyone have any suggestions of books that involve the winter season as a good book I could read?

9) COFFEE!!! Your favourite contemporary story.
I don’t drink coffee either…or read much contemporary. Like, no contemporary, actually. As far as realistic fiction, I’ve read a few (mostly historical fiction). Actually, I’m reading a pretty good historical/realistic fiction called Letters from the Jade Dragon Box. It talks a lot about China being under communist rule and its really interesting so far. But…that’s not really contemporary fiction. Sorry, I got nothing.

Whew! WE HAVE FINISHED ALL THE BLOG TAGS. Remember, if you want to be tagged, you are! This is a fun one. 🙂 Also, speaking of all these books I’m wondering, do you have any good book recommendations that I should read? If you have some favorite books that you think I might not have read, please tell me! I love getting recommendations.


These are a Few of my Favorite Words

Since I haven’t finished a couple of the longer blog posts I’m working on, I decided to go with a fun little one, where I share with you some of my favorite words that are either obscure or really fun to say, and their definitions!

I was actually tagged to do this by three people, Kellyn from “Reveries”kbl from “KBLSewing”, and Aurora from “Incomparable”.  Thanks you guys! But that means I have 33 questions to answer at the end…that’ll be fun.

11 Facts About Me (no, I’m not doing 33 of these)

  1. I love the smell of yeast. (Random, I know, but it was the first thing that came to the top of my head.)
  2. I have alopecia areata.
  3. My favorite color is turquoise.
  4. My favorite season is autumn.
  5. I’ve finished 5 novels, but haven’t revised any of them. (I’m planning on it, though!)
  6. I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (a.k.a. a Mormon)
  7. I took piano lessons for 7+ years.
  8. My favorite number is 23.
  9. I get claustrophobic sometimes. Usually in cars or tents or in really small spaces.
  10. My favorite tree is either the willow or the aspen.
  11. I love orange juice–I think I could drink it all day long…

The 33 Questions…

Questions from Kellyn:

If you were to choose one place in the world to vacation, where would that be? What would you do there?

Hmm…I don’t know. Somewhere new and exotic, out of the country. Probably somewhere in Europe. And while I was there, I would go sightseeing and eat lots of yummy new foods.

Say you’re trapped in one of your favorite books as the main character. What would you do differently than what he/she did?

One of my favorite books…but there’s too many choices! I would say something by Brandon Sanderson, but most of his books have multiple main characters…I’ll go with Dragon Slippers for this one. What would I do differently? I’d ride the dragons way more often. I’ve always wanted to ride a dragon.

What’s your least favorite thing about your favorite book?

I’m going to go with the Stormlight Archives series for this one, by Brandon Sanderson. My least favorite thing is that the next book isn’t coming out until 2017. Agh!

If you had a choice between being trapped in a frozen wasteland or a barren desert, what would you choose?

Frozen wasteland, definitely. I’d much rather die of cold than of heat.

If you were able to take three books with you on vacation, what three would those be? (And, no, you can’t just bring your Kindle….)

I’d bring my Book of Mormon (one of our religious texts), and then I’d bring The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson, since those are both over 1000 pages long and should last me until the end of vacation. 🙂

If you had a time machine, where (and when!) would be the first place you went?

If I couldn’t affect anything, I’d love to go to the past and just observe what it was like (and I’d also really like to meet Jesus Christ) but if I would affect things, I’d probably go to the future and just see what it’s like. Then I could write really realistic sci-fi books, hehe!

What’s your motto?

I don’t know…I don’t think I have one specific motto that I follow or I feel is just meant for me. Also, my mind is blanking on mottos.

What would you hate to see someone throw away?

Interesting question…probably something that I would be willing to take, like chocolate or cookies or books or something.

Say you take up a new hobby (something you’ve never tried before). What would that be?

Something I’ve never tried before? Well, I think it’d be cool to learn to paint professionally, but I’ve tried painting before. Ooh, it would be cool to learn how to weave cloth by hand…I could make rugs and tapestries and it sounds like fun.

To be or not to be? That is the question!

To be!

What’s the #1 item on your bucket list?

To (when I get older) get married and become a mother.

Questions from kbl:

Least favorite food?

Mushrooms. Or squash. But I really don’t like mushrooms…they just kind of creep me out with how they look. They just look wrong.

Most bearable/favorite core subject in school?

English. Because I love to read and write.

Favorite day of the week? (Not Saturday or Sunday)

Hm. I like Fridays, but I also like Tuesdays and Wednesdays too. And Thursdays. I guess any day except for Mondays…

Favorite flavor of ice cream?

But there’s so many choices! I like peppermint sometimes, and strawberry, and cookies and cream and mint chocolate chip, and, well, most ice cream, because ice cream is delicious.

Coke or pepsi? 😉

Neither…? I’ve actually never tried either of them.

Favorite movie?

Lord of the Rings! I love that movie.

Book of choice to live in?

Hmmm…I don’t know. I’d love to live somewhere with magic and nice dragons, but not somewhere where I’d get hurt, but I’m pretty sure that anywhere I’d go would have threats and dangers. So…something with a really cool magic system that I could use. And with dragons. Uhh…I don’t know what book that would be. Maybe I’d go in Dragon Slippers even though there’s not much of that magic in it, but the dragons are awesome.

Favorite and least favorite character in said book?

In Dragon Slippers, my favorite character is Creel, the main character. She’s awesome. And my least favorite character…that one girl whose name I can’t remember that SPOILERSPOILER betrays her.

Favorite holiday?

Christmas! I love the Christmas season.

Favorite color?


Favorite type of shoe?

Uh…flip flops. Honestly, I’d rather not wear shoes at all. Can I answer barefoot?

Questions from Aurora:

What would you do if you were stuck in a small pitch-black room, with no doors or windows, and you were only surrounded by walls?

Cry. And get claustrophobic. And try to find a way out. And pray for help. And if no help came, I’d pass the time by talking to myself or telling stories in my head or singing songs.

If you could choose to change a part in your favourite book which part would you change, and what would you change it to instead?

I have no idea. Most of my favorite books are so awesomely written that even though I don’t like some of the things that happen to the characters, I probably wouldn’t actually change them, because the conflict is what makes the books so amazing.

You are given a choice to choose between a sword and a bow and arrows. Which would you choose?

To fight with, or just to have? If it was just to have, I’d way rather have a sword. I’d want a really cool looking one too, with a spiky/really serrated blade that generally is just super awesome to look at. To fight with…I don’t know. I feel like a bow and arrows would be less dangerous, so I might choose that, but I’d love to learn how to fight with a sword. So I’d probably go with the sword either way.

What was your scariest dream/nightmare?

Out of all of them, the scariest are probably the ones where someone in my family dies. I don’t like those ones at all.

What is your dream job?

Being a stay-at-home mom and an author! That’s what I want to do when I grow up, and hopefully it’ll work out.

What are your thoughts… on apple pie?

It is delicious and probably my favorite kind of pie there is. Yummm. *mouth waters at the thought of apple pie*

What is your favourite subject?

In school? English, Choir, or Creative Writing. I like all of those.

If you had to choose between turning all water into blood or turning all food into stars, which would you choose?

All food into stars because it would make the sky look pretty as I died…

Are you on NaNoWriMo?

Yup! I’m bookishgirl on the YWP and bookishgirl23 on NaNo.

What is your favourite book?

Probably any of Brandon Sanderson’s books. He’s an amazing fantasy author, and I really need to write a blog post on him sometime because his books are so fantastical.

Which of these questions did you enjoy the most?

Out of these eleven, I really liked the sword and arrows one, since I like fantasy-ish stuff. Out of all thirty-three…I don’t know, I can’t decide. There were too many good ones that I enjoyed answering.

Favorite “snuggle-weather” books

Heheh, I like lots of books during snuggle-weather, as you have called it. Most books are nice to be read with a fuzzy blanket and snow falling outside. One of my very favorite Christmas books is a picture book called The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg. I love that story.

Favorite wintery/Christmassy snacks

Cookies. Ginger cookies are specifically Christmassy because we always set them out for Santa. Also, ice cream (when is it ever the season not to have ice cream?), specifically peppermint flavored. And we always get chocolate oranges in our stockings, which are tasty, and there are always candy canes hanging on the trees so I always end up eating lots of candy canes in the weeks after Christmas.

Oh! And clementines. Those are wintery, right? I love clementines and no bag of them ever lasts long in my house. My parents have ordered me not to eat the whole bag before. (I left them one or two.)

Favorite hot drinks

I think apple cider/wassail is my favorite Christmas hot drink, followed by hot chocolate. My family also makes this “creamer steamer” thing that tastes yummy as well.

Favorite Christmas movies

My family always watches “A Christmas Story” sometime before Christmas. I also watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” for the first time this year and I really enjoyed it, so I think that’s going to turn out to be one of my definite favorites. I used to always watch “Nora’s Christmas Gift” with my brother, so that holds good memories for me too.

Favorite holiday songs

Ahh! So many of them, I can’t list them all off. But I’ll name a few of my very favorite ones. Carol of Joy, What Child is This?, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Silent Night, O Holy Night, and so many others. I love Christmas music.

Favorite “snow-day” crafts

Hm. I don’t think I’ve done any crafts this year with snow. Actually, I don’t know if this counts as a craft, but I took the screen out of my bedroom window and climbed out of it to take pictures of the snow from my window well, because all these bushes were hanging over it covered in snow and it was really pretty. So I like taking pictures. I also like making Christmas cards and ornaments.

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Brrrrr. But yes, I would! I haven’t made a snowman in a few years and I think it would be lots of fun, especially since we do have a good amount of snow right now.

As far as tagging other people…I don’t think I have anyone to tag, and that’s probably okay, considering it’s after Christmas right now. Merry late Christmas everyone!
