This tag was shamelessly stolen from Josiah over at The Steadfast Pen. If you haven't visited his blog yet, you should definitely check it out. He has some great perspectives on Christian writing and also shares some hilarious snippets from his early writing.
As always with tags, there are rules to follow. Or are they more like guidelines?
1. Give the person who tagged you an endless supply of cookies. (Since I tagged myself, can I still do this?)
2. Answer the questions and use the blog graphic.
3. Pass along the tag (since I'm following the pirate code and these are more guidelines than actual rules, feel free to pirate this tag from me).
4. Wear a sweater. Does wearing one yesterday count?
Fuzzy Sweater--The Epitome of Comfort
For this book, I'm going to pick A Wrinkle in Time. I know that I bring it or LotR up in pretty much every bookish tag that I do, but I can't help myself. It just really picks me up when I'm feeling blue--just like a fuzzy sweater.
Striped Sweater-A Book which you Devoured Every Line
It's going to sound weird, but Ender's Game. I read it on my Kindle and I think about a third of the book is highlighted."Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be," is one of my favorites.
Ugly Christmas Sweater--Book with a Weird Cover
Even though I loved the book, I'm going to have to go with this version of Daughter of Light. It makes more sense once you've read the book, but it's still weird.
Cashmere Sweater--Most Expensive Book
I didn't buy it, but the most expensive one I own is a really nice copy of LotR that my parents got me for my 21st birthday.
To veer away from LotR, I'll say A Journey to the Center of the Earth, by Jules Verne.
Cardigan--Book Purchased on Impulse
Most recently, The Chronicles of Riddick. I actually enjoyed it a fair bit.
Turtleneck Sweater--Book from Your Childhood
Pippi Longstocking. I'll still read it if I've had a bad day and it doesn't fail to cheer me up.
Homemade Knitted Sweater--Indie Book
I've reviewed a number of Indie books on the blog, so I went searching for one that I haven't given much publicity through book reviews, buttons, or multiple books reviewed in a series. I rediscovered The Collar and the Cavvarach, which I would definitely recommend.
V-neck Sweater--A Book that Didn't Meet Your Expectations
The Messengers: Discovered. I really wanted to like it, but I didn't. It had all the things wrong with Christian apocalyptic fiction and even the spot-on theology wasn't enough to save it. I partially set it up for failure because many of my friends on the internet really enjoyed it and I therefore had similar expectations, especially considering that it came from a publishing house that I trust (albeit more for non-fiction). I'm still debating on reading the sequel.
Argyle Sweater--Book with a Weird Format
I hate myself for even writing the title of this book. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Apologies if you like it. My opinion on it is that someone was eating far too many mushrooms in the woods. It was the 70's, after all.
Polka Dot Sweater--A Book with Well-Rounded Characters
There are quite a few that I could pick for this one, but I'm going to choose A Cast of Stones, by Patrick W. Carr.
What would you answer for some of these questions?
Feel free to steal the tag!
