The Spectacular Book Tag

Hey, everyone! Rebekah from Rebekah's Remarks tagged me for the Spectacular book tag. Thanks, Rebekah!


 The Rules:

1. Answer the questions
2. Tag 3 to 5 bloggers


1. What are your favorite book covers?
I'm going to assume that you only want me to list a few, and not ALL my favorites. 'Cause that would be a super long list. So here are my top four. ;) 




2. What are your favorite book titles?
All the ones above. ;) Also. . .
A Dream not Imagined
Roses for Mama
Ivan
Dawn of Liberty
Blue Skies Tomorrow
Resist
Once upon a Summer
War Tears
The Princess and I
And. . .yeah. I'll stop there. 

3. Have you read a book and didn't know why they named it that and what was the title?
Ummm, not that I can think of right off. Most of the books I've read seem to have titles that fit them quite well.

4. Have you read a book with a character that made you mad?
Well, I think in every book the villain is supposed to make you mad. To list a couple. . .Willie, from Above all Earthly Powers, and Gustav from The Eleventh Hour.

5. Is there someone or something from a book you would never want to come across?
I'm the kind of person who immediately wants to meet all the villains and see if I can talk some sense into them. So. . .I don't think I'm too scared of any of them. However, I'd never want to meet The White Witch from the Narnia books. She is the one villain who has managed to terrify me. She's just so evil and creepy and all that. I mean, I guess she's supposed to be. But still!

6. If you could meet a character in person from a book who would it be?
Augh! I hate these kind of questions. Either Ivan Rodchenko or Bran Mornally. They'd be a tie. ;) 

7. What book are you currently reading?
I'm in the middle of waaayy too many books! Marie by Linda Windsor, Wings of a Dream by Anne Mater, The Vigilante's Bride, by Yvonne Harris, Recapture the Wonder by Ravi Zacharias, and Twelve Myths Americans Believe by Erwin Lutzer. 

8. Have you read a book that made you cry?
Most recently  it would be The Grand Weaver: How God shapes us through the events of our lives by Ravi Zacharias. I think this is the first non-fiction book that that has brought me to the point of tears. It's so, so good. What else can I say? Just read it. ;) 

9. What is the weirdest book you read? 
Umm, I don't know. If I start a book and it seems weird, I usually just stop reading it. :P If I had to choose one that was sorta weird, I'd choose How a Star Falls by Amber Stokes. It just took me a while to figure out what was going on, and it just all seemed sorta weird. Then again, there was nothing wrong with it. The plot and characters just seemed a little strange. 

10. What is the worst book/series you ever read?
Like I said above, I don't really finish a book if I start it and don't like it. Now if we're talking poems, a few of Edger Alan Poe's have struck me as strange and weird. And a couple of Ralph Waldo Emerson's as well. I only read them because they were required for school. 

11. If you could only read one more book the entire year what would it be?
Augh! I'm going to take the easy way out and say the Bible. B-) That's not what you meant? Okay, fine.  Probably Cries of the Heart by Ravi Zacharias. It looks really, really good, and it's awaiting me on my shelf! :) 

Okidokie! I'm going to tag. . .

Deborah at Reading in June
Lauren at Lauren's Amazing World
Bethany at A Great God and good Cocoa

    Most of the books you mentioned are on by TBR list, LOL. ;) Uh, yeah, "How a Star Falls" was a little strange. ;)

    1. I've always LOVED that title. So, uuhhh, work on it, 'kay? B-)
      I know, right? I don't think I ever actually "got" it. *shrugs* And the ending was weird. ;)

    2. Ah, more hints. B-) Well, if everything I write would quit getting lost I might could actually finish something. >.<
      Me neither. It was strange. ;) "While You're Awake" is a little different, but it's better than that one. :)

  6. I actually read this post and wrote up a whole comment but for some reason it got deleted. *slams head on keyboard* Ugh. SO ANNOYING! Anyway, I really enjoyed the post. It is always good to see what other people enjoy reading and get recommendations. (By the way, I ordered the book Dare! I'm really excited to read it!)

    2. I will! I got it mostly based off of your and Faith's recommendation so I know I will like it! The fact that I enjoy long books over shorter books doesn't hurt either!
