Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag 2020| ft. all the books I didn’t read…

Hello, everybody!

Yes, it’s me again- the same person who promised to post once a week and hasn’t posted in over ten days. 

My excuse is that I’m in a summer camp which actually takes up my whole day. I finally am writing a post because I finished my work an hour early. And also because I’m sick of ignoring my notifications and not posting anything.

It definitely feels good to write a post again. I feel like with the world changing around us so quickly, time is just flying by and even though I posted ten days ago, it feels like a month. Honestly, there are so many things I wanted to do that I didn’t get a chance to and so many things that I never even thought I would have done that all happened in the first half of 2020.

Aside from the quick identity crisis, this tag is actually going to be focused on books. Part of me wants to write a long post explaining why we should defund the police but I also just want to read a fluffy contemporary novel even though I’m sort of in a reading slump right now.

Hopefully I’ll get a chance to satisfy myself in this post!

This tag was originally created by IsThatChami and EarlGreyBooks. I don’t know if I was tagged (like I said, I haven’t actually checked notifs in… weeks) but I want to do this tag anyways! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag 2020| ft. all the books I didn’t read…”

  • Answer all the questions given to you
  • Nominate some people
  • Write 10 questions for them to answer

⭐What is your favorite Disney movie?⭐

Ooh, we’re starting off with a tough one! I love so many Disney movies, but I’ll list my top five because I’m indecisive: Mulan, Moana, Princess and the Frog, and Aladdin. I can’t choose a fifth-place- I’m stuck between Frozen I and The Lion King but I think I’ll go with Lion King.

⭐Do you have a least favorite book character?⭐

Hmm, I really hate Snape (here’s a great Pin that explains why, please please read it if you even reMOTELY sympathize with Snape) but I’m going to give a new answer. This is probably cheating but I’m going to choose Edward from Twilight. It’s cheating because, well, I’ve never read the books.

i’m going to be attacked by twilight fans aren’t i oh god

He’s just disgusting and a stalker and rapey and *shudders*. I watched the first three movies with El- I think we both hate him XD.

⭐Bedtime- a reasonable hour or some early hour of the morning?⭐

I’m proud to say I actually (usually) go to sleep before midnight haha. Weird, right? I try to go to bed a reasonable hour. Because of quarantine- school starts at 10 AM, I wake up at 8- I’ve pushed that time back to get-ready-for-bed-at-11-PM.

⭐Fluffy blankets or heaps of cushions?⭐

Um, what sort of question even is this?! XD just kidding- not. Definitely fluffy blankets. My feet are ALWAYS cold (I mean it when I saw ‘always’. My brother hates me for putting it on them) so blankets are the way to go 😉

⭐Do you still have any plush toys? ( I do, it’s a whale and his name is Ghoeqphfe, pronounced ‘Jeff’)⭐

OF COURSE I DO! To be fair, my brother is still nine so obviously I have more than if I didn’t have a little sibling, but I kid you not, we own DOZENS of stuffed toys. Just the ones in my room- Polly (the polar bear, so original), Lavender (an owl), Cookie (a dog), Cherry Lime (a frog with sentimental value), and there are many others.

Also, Emma’s such a mood all the time. Ghoeqphfe is the best name for a whale XD

⭐Do you enjoy DIY and arts + crafts activities⭐

Do I enjoy them?

Yes.

Am I any good at them?

Well… that wasn’t the question so you can guess for yourself 😉 I had an obsessive phrase a summer or two ago when I had to do EVERY single DIY there ever was. My room was such a mess, smh.

⭐How do you plan your blog posts?⭐

Hahaha, you PLAN your blog posts?!?? Such a nerd.

I don’t plan them, like a cool person.

(B99 reference!)

But actually, I sometimes do! This one is planned for a week ahead because of Tag Week. I don’t have much of a method- I just type them? And schedule them? The only conscious decisions I make are scheduling them for at least several days after the previous post and trying to vary what posts I curate. For example, I try not to do multiple reviews back to back (haha, I never do reviews anymore) and I don’t post two tags at once.

Unless, of course, it’s tag week.

As you can see, we like breaking our own rules around here.

⭐Christmas or Halloween?⭐

Halloween for sure! I don’t celebrate Christmas (not just bc I’m not Christian but bc my family specifically doesn’t do much) and it’s a festive-but-boring time because it’s just like every other day, except everyone’s having fun.

Halloween though? I GORGE MYSELF ON CANDY. Also, I get to Trick-Or-Treat with friends so why wouldn’t I like that??

⭐Mugs or Candles?⭐

I’m going to have to go with mugs. As aesthetic as candles are, I actually use mugs, and they can also be aesthetic too.

⭐Do you like the How To Train Your Dragon franchise?⭐

I do! I remember watching HTTYD3 in theatres when it came out and being so nostalgic.

I Tag:

Anyone who wants to do it! I’m not going to tag anyone for the rest of the week just because I know how it feels to be overwhelmed with tags (shh… let’s pretend I didn’t run away from my tags and awards for ten months…)

My Questions:

  • what’s your favorite fictional ship? as in, relationship from a tv show or book.
  • current favorite color? (can be for your current mood this hour, today, this week, this month, honestly whatever makes the most sense to you)
  • opinion on fast fashion vs slow fashion?
  • last 5-star book you read?
  • favorite blog post you’ve read in the past few days? link, please!
  • how often do you wash your hair?
  • have you ever thought about going vegan or vegetarian?
  • favorite ice cream flavor?
  • audiobooks or ebooks?
  • when was the last time you looked around and felt grateful to live in your neighborhood and why did you feel like that?
