Big Thanks to Jonas @ Other Things, for tagging me to do the I Messed Up Tag! I’ve seen it going around for a little while now, and I was thinking about doing it, so it’s nice to actually be tagged to do it! 😀
A CHARACTER’S APPEARANCE THAT YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY
I can’t think of any…How would you know if you were wrong anyway? Most of the time when a book is turned into a movie, the person they cast as the main character looks nothing like the description from the book. So how would you know you were wrong?
A CHARACTER NAME THAT YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG
No one I can think of. Most of the people I read about have plain/easy to read names like Sydney or Rachel. Well… Now that I think about it, one character that I was kind of like, now how do you say that? and it was Halley from Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen. Is it HEY-lee or HAL-lee? At first when she said it was like Halley’s Comet, I was still like wait what? People say it two ways. Some people say HAL-lee’s Comet, while others say HEY-lee’s Comet. Thankfully she explains it in the book, and it’s pronounced HAL-lee.
AN OVERUSED TROPE THAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE
Girl needs boy to save her. I’m sorry but no! You don’t need a man to save you. You can save yourself!
A CLICHÉ CHARACTER TYPE THAT YOU LIKE BETTER ON SCREEN THAN READING ABOUT
The Brooding Male Character. I always feel a little uneasy when reading about them. They just seem SO LAME and EXTRA! I find them to be VERY embarrassing in books, but I usually love them on screen…Well, that is if they get the right guy to pay the Brooding Character…Then I’m all in! 😉
A WORD/PHRASE YOU LEARNED BECAUSE OF ITS USE IN A BOOK
A phrase I learned from How Many Letters Are In Goodbye? by Yvonne Cassidy, and hope to NEVER see/hear again, is the saying that someone/something is “fifty kinds of crazy.” It was said about a THOUSAND times in this book, and I thought I was going to go CRAZY if I heard it one more time! I hope to never hear and or see that phrase again!!!
HAVE YOU EVER NOT READ OR COMPLETED A REQUIRED READING BOOK FOR SCHOOL?
Yes, For some idiotic reason, we had to read the Bible for my honors English class during the summer, but I didn’t do it. The whole year I was sweating bullets, thinking we were going to be asked about it, but we really didn’t do anything with it, so I got LUCKY!!
HAVE YOU EVER (OR WANTED TO) SKIPPED A CHAPTER FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A CHARACTER YOU WEREN’T INTERESTED IN?
Yes, I have wanted to, but No, I haven’t. I think the last time I wanted to was when I was reading the Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead. I couldn’t stand Adrian at some point, so I just wanted to skip all of his chapters…Why she started going back and forth from Sydney to Adrian, is beyond me, but she did it, and I just had to take it. Even though I wanted to skip his chapters BADLY, I didn’t let myself skip! 😦
HAVE YOU EVER CANCELLED SOCIAL PLANS TO READ A BOOK?
No, I don’t think I have. I’m a homebody, and I rarely like being social (hah!) so usually when it’s time to go out and do something other than reading, it’s my choice to do so.
That was fun! 🙂 Thanks again to Jonas for the tag! If you aren’t already,
go ahead and give him a follow! 😀
