Who Am I? Book Tag

I was tagged by my friend Dini @Dini Panda Reads to take part in the Who Am I? Book Tag.


QUESTION 1:
IF YOUR LIFE WERE A BOOK GENRE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I think it would be one of those dramedy type reads with an idiotic main character who always does the wrong thing and frustrates the reader with her daft decisions but eventually comes to her senses by the end.

I’d be the one on the right…

QUESTION 2:
WHAT VILLAIN FROM A BOOK DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH THE MOST?

I really like Xifeng from Forest of a Thousand Lanterns because to me she’s not really a villain. She’s just very misunderstood; life has dealt her a raw deal and I think at times we can all feel like that.

QUESTION 3:
WHAT PROTAGONIST ARE YOU MOST SIMILAR TO?

I very much identify with Hazel Grace from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I feel we are kindred spirits as we have shared similar life stories as teens.

QUESTION 4:
WHICH BOOK DID YOU CONNECT WITH, IN THE PAST THAT YOU NO LONGER DO?

Hmm this is a tough one. Probably Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I adored it as a child and reread it countless times. But as I have aged I can see more flaws in the book even though it still holds a very special place in my heart… but maybe with the upcoming film I might find something new to connect with…

QUESTION 5:
WHAT RECENT BOOK READ WOULD YOU LOVE TO BE A CHARACTER IN?

Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers because that book, and the whole Wayfarers series really, is simply magnificent. It’s not a traditional style SciFi with madcap space adventures or space battles with hostile aliens but what there is is an innate sense of humanity.

The books, though set in some far flung future amidst the stars, are more authentic and true to what it is we are as a society than any contemporary could hope to be. And it is this type of future version of humanity that I aspire to.

QUESTION 6:
HOW DO YOUR READING HABITS SHOW OFF YOUR PERSONALITY?

I think because I read such a wide variety of genres it shows that I have an interest in a great many things… or maybe shows that I get bored easily lol!

QUESTION 7:
WHAT BOOK TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF?

The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger taught me that it was okay to not be okay.

That no one else has it all figured out either. And that we are all just somehow living this life the best way we possibly can.


And that’s it! What do you guys think of my answers? Let me know in the comments below. And if you want to do this tag then please link your post in the comments below also.

  1. Oh haha! I’m with you if my life was a book genre, I’d be the same way! I do all the wrong things all the time, somehow people find my crazy shenanigans funny πŸ˜›
    I think reading a whole bunch of different genres is is great. I do it all the time, it keeps things fresh! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m the same when it comes to reading habits. It’s so hard to resist books if they have stunning covers, good reviews or my favourite tropes ❀ It can be almost any genre and it's one of those categories I'll give it a go. What attracts you to a book?

    1. I really don’t know why I choose to read the books I do. Because sometimes I will read a book knowing that I won’t like it but I’m curious about it in some ways, sometimes it’s a favoured trope that makes me pick up a book, definitely if a book garners a lot of awards or praise in the media I’ll want to read it… And yup. Always going to be seduced by a pretty cover!!! I just read according to my mood more than anything really. And because I am genuinely fascinated by so many different things that leads to me picking up a lot of different genre styles. Must be the inquisitive scientist in me :))))

    1. That makes me so happy to hear Joanna! Because catcher is one of those books that so many people seem to hate. It’s quite polarising really. But like you it just speaks to that inner most part of myself and even when I went back to it as an adult I still found so much in it that moved me deeply :))))

  3. YAY! So glad that you did this one. I LOVED your answers, Emer! Especially about the Catcher in the Rye πŸ™‚ I feel like I need to reread that book now as an adult! Also, that (gif) quote from TFIOS is one of my super favorites! So many quotes from that book are actually lol I’m now also even more intrigued by Becky Chambers’ books and the covers are also so freaking gorgeous. I can’t wait to add the to my shelf πŸ˜ƒ
