Avid Reader’s Award and Real Neat Blog Award!!!

Hey everyone!

I’ve realized that it’s been forever since I’ve done any tags, so here I am to catch up!

First of all, I was tagged for the Avid Reader’s Award by Kaley, who is the creator of this tag!! Thanks so much, Kaley!

The Rules:

  1. Display the blog award logo on your blog
  2. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  3. Do not forget to link to their blogging website
  4. List your favorite five books
  5. Answer all the questions they gave you
  6. Nominate four bloggers of your choice
  7. Ask them ten questions

My Five Favorite Books:

Ah-h-h-h, this is so hard! How can I pick just five?! Well, okay, in no specific order, here are five of my favorite books!

  1. The Bible 
  2. Les Miserables (Victor Hugo)
  3. In God’s Underground (Richard Wurmbrand)
  4. Frankenstein (Mary Shelley)
  5. The Return (Lacey Sturm)

Kaley’s Questions:

     1. If you were forced to live in a book world, which would you live in?

Oh-h-h… maybe Narnia. I’ve wondered what Narnia would be like since I was seven or eight and watched the Narnia videos. XD

     2. What is one scene from a book that stuck with you? (We don’t have to get it, just say it!)

There are so-o-o many scenes from books that have stuck with me for whatever reason. The first one that comes to mind is the scene in Les Miserables where Enjolras kills the artillery-man. That part is so-o-o-o sad. I think everyone should read Les Mis.

     3. What is one imaginary object that you wish was real?

Oh, I don’t know! I guess I haven’t really thought about it much. Most of the fantasy stories I read are somewhat allegorical, so I suppose that everything in them is real to some extent.

     4. What cover of a book do you like best?

51K6iSgqUqL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

I love this picture, for whatever reason. 😛

     5. What book character do you relate to most?

Pierre Gringoire from The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (Victor Hugo), Hannah Lawson from October Baby (Eric Wilson), Dea from The Man Who Laughs (Victor Hugo), Christian from The Pilgrim’s Progress (John Bunyan), Dick Desley from The Crown of Success (Charlotte Maria Tucker), Owen Reeder from The Wormling (Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry), Bryce Timberline from Red Rock Mysteries (Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry), Brianna, Manuel and Levi from The Prince Warriors (Priscilla Shirer), Amanda from Tales Of The Kingdom… there are SO many characters I see myself in. XD

     6. Which book villain do you hate the most?

Can I say Marius from Les Miserables? While he’s not “technically” the villain, he’s one of my least favorite characters of all time

     7. What is one book you can’t stand or can’t get into?

I found it pretty hard to get into In Times Of Peril (G. A. Henty) and Caged No More (Molly Venzke).

     8. What is one book character quote?

Love, the future is thine. Death, I make use of thee, but I hate thee. Citizens, in the future there will be neither darkness nor thunderbolts; neither ferocious ignorance, nor bloody retaliation.

(Enjolras from Les Miserables)

     9. Have you read any of my favorites?

I’ve read Luke and most of your Universe story!!!

     10. What is your favorite nonfiction book?

Probably In God’s Underground (Richard Wurmbrand), I Will Carry You (Angie Smith), It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way (Lysa TerKuerst) or The Return (Lacey Sturm). I love nonfiction.

Kaley’s Questions:

Hmm… maybe Inside Out or one of those old Charlie Chaplin movies. XD (Some of them are pretty short and they can be hilarious…)

Ah… that’s such a hard question. I don’t know who I would switch with, honestly!

I saw my math disk sitting in one of them. XD

Right now, I have the most emails from my grandpa. =)

     7. In honor of the award name, what is something you think is real neat but most people don’t know about it?

I think that Hanukkah is a really neat holiday. I used to think that everyone celebrated it, but I’ve been surprised at how many people have no idea what it’s about!
