So… I have created another tag…haha. This time, it’s just for books and written media [comics, manga, Webtoons] and the questions are all based on things cats do and things cat owners experience. Before this tag starts, I’d like you to appreciate my cats for a moment:
- If you do this tag please credit me at Kate@ meltingpotsandothercalamities
- Answer the questions
- And tag as many people as you like!
PURR- AS CATS DO THIS WHEN THEY’RE HAPPY OR RELAXED, WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT MAKES YOU HAPPIEST OR RELAXED?
Hmm… Any book that I’ve read a few times. I know what’s going to happen, so it’s like comfort food. And for Webtoons, Saphie the One Eyed Cat. It’s humorous and cute, guaranteed to put a smile on my face.
SLEEP- WHAT IS A BOOK THAT PUT YOU TO SLEEP OR WAS JUST BORING?
My parents used to read to me when I was younger and about to go to bed, and I fell asleep a lot during the books, especially with Lord of the Rings.
TWITCH WHILE DREAMING- HAVE YOU EVER DREAMT OF A BOOK YOU READ?
I wish I could say yes, but I haven’t. How sad. 😦
SEEMS TO PLAY NICE…UNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUT- WHICH BOOK HAD THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST(S)?
There’s a lot. I would say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows probably had the biggest plot twists for me, mainly in the last half. And for Webtoons, Bastard. I nearly said Hooky, but that plot twist is slow burning. With Bastard, the plot twist comes and hits you in the face…by the third chapter. Oh dear.
CUDDLES- WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD YOU GIVE A HUG TO?
I don’t think any book character would approve of being hugged by a stranger… so none.
CATNIP- WHAT’S A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAVE WARM AND FUZZY FEELS?
Warm and fuzzy…that’s hard for my books. Maybe I Am The Messenger? That certainly had its fun, warm and fuzzy moments. For Webtoons: probably Miss Abbott and the Doctor. Easily one of the lightest things I’ve ever read.
CAT BREEDS- WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?
I’m mad at myself for putting this on! For books: I really do love Harry Potter. Easily one of the deepest book series I’ve ever read. And also I am the Messenger; while I do love The Book Thief, also by Markus Zusak, I prefer I am the Messenger. It may be that it’s modern, but I related to the characters more, but somehow, I found this to be just as profound, if not more so, than The Book Thief. For Webtoons: the two that pop to mind are Dr. Frost and Annarasumanara. Dr. Frost is a unique mystery series, and it explores the human mind. Some of the psychology in this series is controversial and subjective, but that’s really a lot of psychology in general. It had great characters and development. Annarasumanara is beautiful. No other way to put it. The art, the story, the writing, and the characters. It’s so deep and profound, and genuinely moving.
GETTING THE CAT- HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR FAVORITE BOOK(S).
For Harry Potter, it was my mom. I was in second grade, and she decided to read them to me because she wanted to see what all the fuss was about. We both loved it, although we took a short break at one point. I am the Messenger: a school administrator saw me reading The Book Thief one day and recommended I am the Messenger . Dr. Frost was my first Webtoon; a friend of mine recommended it highly, saying she knew I’d love. She also recommended Annarasumanara.
THE VET’S OFFICE- YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK:
It’s hard to think of one, but at the moment, I’d say Allegiant. I liked the Divergent series until that point.
BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDN’T- LEAST FAVORITE CLICHÉ:
Love triangles. So far, there have only been two that I actually like and think work; Siren’s Lament and The Infernal Devices series.
FINAL QUESTION: THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX- MOST UNDERRATED BOOK SERIES.
Easily the Stoker and Holmes books. By the description, they may sound like fanfiction. But they’re so good and well written. Plus, the two main female characters are awesome. And for Webtoons: Sword Interval. It’s got good art, interesting characters, well-designed monsters, and amazing worl-building.
