Hello, marshmallows of the universe!
Today is the day that I complete the Stationary Book Tag, which I was tagged for by the wonderful Whimsy Pages.
[When I first read the title of the tag, I thought that it meant ‘stationary’ like, Help me, I’m stuck in quicksand. I can’t move. Ignore my random brain vomit. I thought I’d share. The vomit. Because vomit is made to be shared. (Because, you know, when someone vomits, somebody else sees the vomits and then they vomit and I’m getting distracted.)]
- THANK THE CREATOR: SAM @ RIVERMOOSEREADS
- ANSWER THE QUESTIONS.

- TAG (ABOUT) 5 PEOPLE.
PENCILS: FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S BOOK
I’m going to confess something on here for (possibly?) the first time. Don’t hurt me. I hated reading until about second grade. Why? Because (a) I couldn’t read well until second grade (b) everyone else in my class could read and (c) PICTURE BOOKS SUCK (Well, at least the ones that I read). They were stupid and had no action, no adventure. Many were about daily activities, good morals, boring topics. And the ones with action and adventure (*cough* *cough* Magic Tree House/Rainbow Magic) were SO repetitive. The same thing happened in every book. It was basically copy-and-paste, copy-and-paste. It was predictable. It wasn’t THRILLING.
My favorite children’s books were The Secrets of Droon series and the A to Z Mysteries series. They had it all. Intrigue, suspense, thrill, adventure.
PENS: A BASIC STAPLE FOR ANY READER
There are many books that simply must be read by everyone, but I’m going to agree with Whimsy Pages and go with the everpresent Harry Potter.
NOTEBOOKS: BOOKS YOU OWN A MULTIPLE COPIES OF
I currently have two copies of Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda on my bookshelf, but one of them is a present for my friend. I don’t usually (or ever) buy two copies of a book.
MARKERS: BOOKS WITH BEAUTIFUL COVERS
My favorite cover is The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo. The art on the inside is gorgeous as well.
GLUE: TWO CHARACTERS THAT WORK TOGETHER EVEN IF THEY AREN’T TOGETHER
I’m not entirely sure what this means. Like, friends? My go-to answer is Keefe Sencen and Sophie Foster from Keeper of the Lost Cities, but I talk about Keeper all the time, so I’m going to go with Mare and Farley from Red Queen.
SCISSORS: WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU LIKE TO DESTROY
I wouldn’t actually destroy a book. I don’t have it in me. But hypothetically, I’d love to destroy Matched by Ally Condie. I wasted too much of my life reading the book.
