epic reads { T A G }

I was tagged by Hannah. Thank you girly!

1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
I think having a tea party with a bunch of fairy tale characters would be quite interesting! Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin... along with the Grimm brothers? Yes! And we would eat an assortment of yummy finger foods along with our tea. I mean, what else is more appropriate to have with tea?

2. What book do you wish the author would write the prequel for?
The only book I can think of that I desperately want a prequel for is The Lunar Chronicles, but that doesn't work because the author actually did write a prequel! #iwin

3. Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?
Okay, here's the thing: I don't ship characters who aren't in the same story. I don't even ship couples who aren't cannon most of the time... I just think it's ridiculous to think two characters from different stories should be together. It just doesn't work for me. I'd rather not get my hopes too high over something that can't possibly ever happen. (sorry you dedicated shippers out there) However my main OTPs forever and always are: Anne/Gilbert (Anne of Green Gables), Cress/Thorne (The Lunar Chronicles), Faramir/Eowyn (LOTR), Cathy/Hareton (Wuthering Heights), etc.

4. If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
My most favorite author who is actually still living is Markus Zusak, the absolute genius who wrote The Book Thief, and I don't even think I would be able to say anything to him if I randomly ran into him on the subway (side note: why am I taking the subway? There's not a subway anywhere near where I live). I would probably just babble stupidly or just sit there gazing from a distance. Either way I would feel completely embarrassed and ashamed afterwards, so let's hope that never happens.

5. What book made you a reader and why?
I've always been a reader, but back in my early reading days I remember my American Girl and Life of Faith books holding a special place in my heart. I never ever got tired of reading them over and over again on a continuous loop!

6. Your bookshelf just caught fire! What is the one book you would save?
This is a terrible question! However, I would probably most definitely make a dive for my LOTR box set first. I have read them so many times and cherish them more than anything. But once that was safe I would go for my drop-dead gorgeous Grimm's Fairytales book because pretty things should never have to burn if we can help it.

7. Which dystopian world would you want to live in and why?
Delirium. I don't really know why that was the first one to pop into my head... I just think it would be fascinating to live in a world without love... well, for a little while at least. Then I'd like to come back home to my world and watch sappy Hallmark Channel romance movies. 

8. What is your most Epic Read of all time?
As far as epic goes, I think LOTR wins hands down every time. You can't beat it! Many have tried, and many have got close, but nope. LOTR all the way!

    Great post! I agree that you can't beat LOTR, I'm reading it right now and I can't put it down. :)

  3. I also find it hard to imagine characters from different stories being together. :) And LOTR definitely is epic! So epic that I've only made it through once, ha. This year will hopefully be the year I finally reread all three books!

    1. I hope you reread them! Every time I read them I always find something I missed the first time around.

  4. Cress and Thorne along with Anne and Gilbert are some of my main couples, too. I watch fanmade videos that ship Anne/Gilbert, and I cry because it's all so meaningful and gosh, I wish love was more like this in the real world. I'd love to have a tea party with the fairy tale characters, too!

    xoxo Morning

  5. Anne and Gilbert are the best. And I think it would really really mess with my mind to try and ship a couple from two different story worlds. I totally get you.

  6. LOTR is pretty epic. Just about cannot beat it but I have to say that if my bookshelf caught fire I would grab whatever book was least burnt. Not LOTR specifically.

    1. In all honesty, if my bookshelf ever was actually on fire, I probably wouldn't even think about saving a book. I'd just wanna get out of there!

  7. When I read question 3 I panicked because I was all, "I HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED THIS oh NO who do I ship???" but then I read your answer and whew, I'm not the only one. :p Love this!

    1. I panicked a bit too, but I was just too lazy to make up something, so I just told it as it is. :P Haha thanks, Olivia, your comments always make me happy :)

  8. So glad you did this tag! Oh yes, the American Girl Doll books. I read Samantha so many times. SO MANY. When I did the tag, I also put LOTR for the most epic read of all time. I mean, what else could be so epic? Nothing else could live up to it.

    1. I loved all of the American Girl books, but I think Kirsten was my favorite. I was so mad when they retired her. XP
      LOTR is the definition of epic!
