This Is My Truth Now Tag!

I want to thank James J. Cudney IV for nominating me for this awesome tag! I’m so sorry it took forever for me to get to it!

He has an amazing blog and is actually the creator of this tag so please do check out his blog if you don’t already follow it!

The Rules

  1. Create your own new post and call it “Tag: This-Is-My-Truth-Now” and be sure to include in your tags the words — without quotes — “ThisIsMyTruthNow Tag”
  2. Include these rules when you copy/paste to your own post.
  3. Be sure to thank the person that tagged you and include their responses at the bottom of your post, so someone can get to know them too. Tell everyone something interesting about the person who tagged you.
  4. Include a link to my original post mentioning this blog so we can see how many people choose to play along. Link to cut/paste is:  ThisIsMyTruthNow
  5. Choose 12 bloggers to tag and include a link to their latest post, so others can check them out and meet new people.
  6. Answer all 12 questions in The Challenge Questions section, but replace the 12th question with your own new one around telling the truth or revealing something interesting about yourself — you can leave the existing if you can’t think of something.
  7. Be sure to copy/paste the “Truth or Dare” section at the end of this post. It’s important to the challenge — so you better carefully read it!
  8. If you’ve haven’t been tagged, but you want to play along, you can totally jump on in and post responses to the tag on your blog.

You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you. When you arrive, your favorite author is having dinner by himself or herself and asks you to sit with them, before you even see your friends or they see you. You have two choices: (1) You can sit with the author but can’t tell your friends that you’ve abandoned them for three hours, or (2) Meet your friends and lose the only chance you’ll ever have to talk with the author. Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication to your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why.

I would in all honesty talk to the author because my friends know how much this author means to me and I know they would absolutely understand why I ditched them to spend time with the author!

You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?

I would pick Hermione Granger because we would have a lot to talk about and yes lock the door I don’t mind!

If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?

I would change Holden Caulfield to Hester Prynne so he can see what real problems and suffering look like because in my opinion he is a whiny little spoilt brat.

What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?

Well there are many:

Shay-lon– because she is one of the strongest people I know who breaks barriers every day!

Elaine-She is so sweet and amazing at everything she tries especially art!

Opher- He is one of the smartest people I’ve ever talked to and he has seen amazing things!

inkgirlandwords- She is one of the most driven people I read as well as the most sensitive and caring!

Shweta- She is so sweet and smart and has a way with words!

James J. Cudney IV- He is super interesting and I really enjoy reading his reviews!

And I admire everyone I follow for being excellent writers!

If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?

I would do whatever I had to do and change whatever I had to change to save Fred Weasley.

If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?

Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon from 30 Rock and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride And Prejudice- they seem like a very good match!

It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.

I would choose the second option and the author would be J. K. Rowling and the book would of course be Harry Potter!

If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read, but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it? If so, explain the who and why.

No i definitely would not do that to my friend! I know how much my friends pets mean to them!

If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?

I would turn my sister into a book character just to see what happens (I can bring her back right??)

Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).

Your favorite character (under 18) needs a place to stay for 3 months and asks you if (s)he could stay in your spare room (yes, you have one for the sake of this question). Who is it and what is the reason (s)he needs to stay with you?

It would be Liesel because she is running from the Nazi’s in The Book Thief

Forever, Together Alone Tag!

I want to thank inkgirlandwords for nominating me for this awesome tag!! She is so super smart and down to earth I can’t believe she’s still a teenager! She is definitely one of my favorite most awesome bloggers so please do check out her blog I guarantee it’s worth your follow!

The Rules:♡

  1. Thank the person who started this tag (Luna) and link the blog back!
  2. Answer the questions the person has set up for you! (#7 Stays The Same Forever!)
  3. Tag some peeps back who you think or know are not in a relationship or have a crush!
  4. Post your favourite picture you have on your desktop! (idk why just do it XD)

Do you a movie/book crush you wish was real:

Definitely Mr. Darcy!!

What are some problems you think come with relationships:

Ummm well I’m no expert at relationships but I think the biggest problem personally for me would be that I am very impatient sometimes and I can be very stubborn so it would be hard for me to adjust and try to be more understanding. I also have a very hard time opening up to people and letting people in which would probably be hard for my partner because they can’t really tell how I’m feeling about things.

Would you ever want to have a kid:

Inkgirlandwords says: I don’t think I would sorry I can’t resist answering my own quesitons sometimes XD

At the place I am in right now in my life I don’t think I want kids any time soon and I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I want to have kids but you never know! People change every day and maybe in like ten years I’ll think differently. It’s not that I don’t like kids because I do but I just wouldn’t want the responsibility of raising one because I wouldn’t be able to take care of it properly and I don’t think that’s fair.

Do you like to write poetry:

Yes definitely! It’s like an outlet for me!

Do you want to get married/ be in a relationship:

Not right now but maybe someday.

Do you think romantic love is worth everything and you should give up everything for it:

No I think TV and books tend to romanticize things and make it seem like love is worth it but realistically it’s really not worth it sometimes and you have to realise that when you’re in love especially initially when you’re at that crazy in love stage things may seem euphoric but in the long run they may change drastically and you may really end up giving up so much. Plus, people fall out of love all the time (it’s sad but it’s true) and I think you have to accept that you may not always be together so is giving up everything really worth it?

Are you in a relationship/have a crush or are you a lonely bean like me:

Lol the only crushes I have are on famous people who don’t know I exist!
