Ace of Shades Book Tag (Irons Edition) #AceofShades #Irons #ShadowGang

 

I am part of the Ace of Shades Street Team (Irons), so I thought I would give this tag a try.  I found it on the Literary Phoenix blog.

 

I don’t think I’ll have answers for all of the questions, but can hopefully fill out most of them.

 

Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own!

 

I think my go to answer for questions like this have to be the world of Harry Potter.  The whole city feels alive with magic and different creatures.  I can’t think of any other one that has so much personality.

ODIN – FAVOURITE STAND ALONE

Odin is the All-Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He is the god of wisdom, poetry, battle, death, wine, and war, among other things.

395040

Not YA, but my favorite book is The Bell Jar.

 

THOR – A BOOK THAT HITS YOU RIGHT IN THE FEELS

Thor is the god of thunder, weather, warriors, strength, and storms, so his might packs a punch. He is married to the beautiful Lady Sif.

 

25014114

I’ve cried twice reading this year and both times were books by Adam Silvera.

 

LOKI – BIGGEST PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL

Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos

29236298

I can’t say who this is about, but there was a character in this book who wasn’t who they said they were.

 

FRIGG – OTP

Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility and fate.

32075662 (1)

I adored Kate and August in This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet.

 

HEIMDALL – FAVOURITE SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES

Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and he is who protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.

15755296

I’m not sure if it’s my favorite second book, but it was one I gave 5 stars.  There are still so many popular YA series that I haven’t read yet.

 

BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER

Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.

8709527

Another one that was tough for me.  But I really love Adrian Ivashkov.

 

SIF – MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER

Lady Sif is known for her beautiful golden tresses, although she is also the goddess of the harvest and is married to Thor.

31931941

Not sure it’s the most beautiful cover, but I love this one.  Maybe not my favorite, but definitely a stand out for me.

 

FREY – BOOK/SERIES THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU HAPPY

Frey is the lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.

30264

Not sure that it makes me happy, but I do laugh a lot in this series. It’s pretty serious, but the humor is great, too.

 

FRAYA – FAVOURITE BOOK SETTING

Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.

21523103

Hard to pick anything other than Hogwarts.  But there are quite a few cool book settings I love.

 

ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST

Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.

33385229

There may be others that bothered me more, but I don’t want to post any spoilers for books.  So I’ll go with this one since we all know they both die at the end.

 

NJORD – FAVOURITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING

Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.

I’m not sure on this one.  If I think of one, I’ll come back and edit it. I can think of some I haven’t read yet, but nothing I’ve read is jumping out at me right now.

 

VALKYRIE – FAVOURITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER

The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.

345627

There are so many strong female leads that I love, but I went with Rose Hathaway.

 

AESIR/VANIR – FAVOURITE BOOK CREW

The Aesir and the Vanir are two groups of Norse gods, believed to be old and new gods.

30183

Might not be my favorite, but I love the group from the House of Night series.

 

SEIPYRTS – FAVOURITE SIDEKICK (NON-HUMAN CHARACTER)

Seipyrts is Odin’s trusty eight legged steed, yes you heard that correctly – eight legs. I promise that he is the god’s horse companion and not a giant spider that he rides around on…although that would probably strike more fear in the hearts of his enemies than a pretty horse does.

28524058

Not really a sidekick, but I love the dragons in this so far (still reading this one right now).  I really want a pet dragon.

 

I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you want to do this one, consider yourself tagged. Please make sure you post your link in the comments so I can read your answers, too.

 

 

 

Guilty Reader Book Tag

I saw this tag on Thrice Read who saw it on Coffee, Cocktails, and Books.  I thought I would give it a try.

The Questions:

1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?

I’ve given away books, but not really as an official gift.  Sometimes I get books I know I’ll never read.  So they are donated or given to a friend.

2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?

I don’t think I’ve done this.  At least not on purpose.  Sometimes I can’t remember, especially if it was high school or earlier.  So it’s possible I thought I read something and later realized I didn’t.

3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?

I’m sure I’ve done this before.  Not recently though.  Probably when I was younger.

4. Have you ever read a series out of order?

No.  But I’ve skipped books before or read a book two first and never read book one. Nothing fantasy where you absolutely need to read the first one.  I sometimes get a contemporary book two approved from Entangled Teen and I haven’t read the first book. It usually doesn’t matter because they are focused on different side characters.

5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

Not on purpose, but I’m sure I have.  I try really hard to keep things to myself though.

6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?

Probably when I was a kid.  But not as an adult that I can remember.  Possibly in my early twenties (I’m 39) with a paperback. But I’m pretty good at having a bookmark or using anything I see as a bookmark.

7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?

I don’t think so.  At least not on purpose.  I don’t always remember what I have.

8. Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?

Not that I can recall.  I doubt it though.

9. Have you every skipped a chapter or a section of a book?

No.  Only if I dnf a book.  But I can’t skip a section or I feel like I cheated.

10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?

I don’t think so.  Maybe a little bit, but nothing major.  If I like it, I generally admit it even if it’s not the popular opinion.

Are you doing this tag?  If so, make sure you comment with your link so I can read it, too.  Do you have any other guilty reader confessions?
