Tag Week: Bedtime Book Tag

Hey guys! I was tagged for this by the lovely Shar from Weaving Waves Words. Thanks so much for thinking of me, Shar!

Fun Fact: none of these books are actually mentioned in the tag. Except one. But they look awful pretty up there on my nightstand, don't they?
1. A Book That Kept You Up All Night
So fun fact, this never actually happens to me because I don’t read before bed anymore. But if I remember correctly, the first time I read Captives by Jill Williamson, I stayed up pretty late to finish. Not all night, but later than I was supposed to.


Same for Champion by Marie Lu. Or wait, maybe it was Prodigy...? Meh. I read too many books. I can’t be expected to remember these things.

Anyways.

2. A Book That Made You Scared To Sleep
Again, don’t think this has ever actually happened, but some of the scarier books I ever read were This Dark Endeavor and Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel. They’re almost like a fanfiction, I guess, of how Victor Frankenstein got his start in people-making. And they’re kind of frightening.


Also, the Gone Novels by Michael Grant. They’re not what I’d call scary, but they are frightening in a disgusting, gruesome, grippingly morbid sort of way.

3. A Book That Made You Go To Sleep
Apparently, I'm not even normal for a bookworm. NONE OF THESE HAVE ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO ME.

But since I must give one that at least came close:


I'm sorry. I am. I know it’s a classic and I don’t mean to be mean, but I practically had to drag myself to the finish line of this one. For whatever reason, it didn’t really grab me until the middle, and even then, well, let's just say I didn't end up giving it a five-star rating.

4. A Book Whose Release You Were So Eager For You Did Not Sleep
*snaps fingers* You know, I think I've figured out what the problem is, why none of these have ever actually happened to me. You see, Sleep and I are very, very close and because our relationship means so much to the both of us, we allow only the most important things (like anime, tv shows, and fangirling with friends) to come between us. And, though I do adore books with all of my heart and soul, apparently, they have yet to reach the point of keeping Sleep and Me apart.

Of course, it might also just be because I don’t read before bed anymore. And this theory doesn’t explain why number 3 has happened yet. But anywho. To actually attempt to answer this question:


This release certainly came close to separating Sleep and I. Also, every time I finish an I Am Number Four book and I have to wait another year to read the next one. WHY MUST YOU END ON SUCH CLIFFHANGERS, PITTACUS??????

5. A Book That Has My Dream Ship
Haha, see here’s the thing: for an unromantic, sort of sarcastic, cold-hearted INTJ, I have a lot of favorite ships. But I’ll just go with this one:


IT COUNTS BECAUSE THERE ARE NOVELIZATIONS OF THE MOVIES, OKAY???? AND THEY ARE MY OTP FOREVER!!!

I will hear no arguments on this.

6. A Place That Would Be Your Worst Nightmare To Live In


Hunger Games, hands down. I really don’t think there’s a worse world than that, at least not one that I’ve read.

7. A Book With A Nightmarish Cliffhanger


As I said in that review, it should be illegal to end a book on such a cliffhanger.

8. A Book You Actually Dreamt About


Okay, so I’ve had a pretty up and down relationship with Twilight (which you can attempt to understand here and here), but during one of the up parts, I’m pretty sure I dreamed about it. Or at least about a werewolf that looked the heck of a lot like Taylor Lautner.

Whatever. I was 13 once.

Also, possibly The Saddle Club and Mortal Instruments. Not positive, but I feel like I have.

9. A Bookish Monster You Don’t Want Under Your Bed
In my experience, one generally does not wish for crazy, killing creatures under one’s place of rest. However, if I had to pick one that I specifically did not EVER want to see under my bed (or anywhere else for that matter), I would say the giant spider lady at the end of Mark of Athena. I would literally--literally--die of fear.

Yes, I am a serious arachnophobe. We all have our vices.

And that’s the tag! Thanks again for tagging me, Shar! It was a blast!

For my part, I tag Zielle and Tori. Don’t feel obligated of course, but I would love to see your answers! :)

So, are you and Sleep as close as Sleep and I are, or do books and life often come between you? What’s a book that reminds you of nighttime (this question was on the original tag, and I couldn’t think of an answer, so I’m throwing it at you instead, lol). Pick another question from the tag and give me your opinion. Can’t wait to see you all in the comment section!

  1. -So my comment posted and then disappeared, so if this shows up twice that's why.-
    Reminds me of nighttime?? The first thing that comes to my mind is The Castle in the Attic by... Elizabeth Winthrop, if I remember correctly, and that's just because I had a super creepy dream about it one time that took place at night. xD
    The closest I've ever come to staying up all night with a book was when I was reading Luminary by Krista McGee. (I think it was Luminary... maybe it was Revolutionary? I'm not sure.) I stayed up until one in the morning because those books will NOT. LET. YOU. PUT. THEM. DOWN. At least that's how it was for me. xD And that same night I actually did dream about it... it was weird and involved lots of emotionless people.
    AND UM ANAKIN AND PADME TOTALLY COUNT. -CRIES BECAUSE THEY'RE SO CUTE AND TRAGIC-

    1. Oh, that does sound kinda creepy. Especially when you mix it with nighttime. Do you remember if you liked the book or was it just creepy?

      Oh, those are the best kind! I haven't read either of them, but I'll have to check them out!

      YES SO GLAD YOU AGREE <3 <3 <3 <3 THEY ARE FANTASTIC.

    2. Yes, I did like it, but if I remember correctly the book actually wasn't creepy at all. xD
      Yes, I love them! If you do check them out, it's actually a trilogy, so be sure to read Anomaly first. :)

    3. Ah, okay. And thanks, I'll make sure to do that! :)

  2. Hmmm, I'd have to say that The Phantom of the Opera and Dracula are both books that remind me of nighttime. I've never fallen asleep reading a book, mainly because I don't fall sleep against my will, and I've never stayed up all night reading a book though I have on two or three occasions stayed up far later than I should have. But I can function on near five hours of sleep a night for a week without really suffering any consequences, so it's not like sleep is something that goes high on my priority list.

    YOU DIDN'T LIKE A WRINKLE IN TIME, YOU MONSTER. Just kidding. *hides from your swift and deadly wrath* No seriously though, I do understand why the book wouldn't have grabbed you. I remember that it was rather slow at times, and I think the main reason why I read it a bunch when I was younger was that I had fallen in love with the movie version, which was cool and creepy and just generally up my alley.

    1. Five hours a night for a week????? That is awesome. I wish I could do that.

      SORRY! I knew someone would comment about that, lol. Like I said, I know it's a classic, but I guess it just wasn't what I expected? IDK. All I know is, I didn't enjoy it. :p
      Ah, all right. Maybe I'll have to check out the movie sometime then.

  3. I LOVED a wrinkle in time. But that's okay! Also, you're so right about pittacus Lore! I've only read the first 1.5 books, then I got scared/had to return to library, but THOSE BOOKS. Why doesn't the blookunity talk about them? And I have to check out the books in 1. and 2! Also, nobody wants to live in Suzanne Collin's world. that would SUCK! Anyway, I love your pic and thanks for doing the tag?

    1. YES THOSE BOOKS. AND IKR???!!! They seem pretty popular, but I haven't heard/read a lot of people talking/typing about them.

      Cool! Let me know what you think of them! :)

      True that. Thanks, and no problem! :D Thanks for tagging me!

  4. Captives was okay, but I don't think it was good enough for me to stay awake to read it... But it's good you liked it. :) It's also funny that you dreamed about Breaking Dawn. XD I don't think I've had any Twilight dreams, but I'm sure mine would be entertaining...

    1. Aw, well. To each their own I suppose. :)

      I know right, lol. Considering my complicated relationship, it's probably because I spent so much time thinking about it.
      Thanks for commenting! :)
