The Bookworm Blog Tag - Blog Tagging for Bookworms

Hey everyone! I have officially been tagged in a blogger tag challenge, the Bookworm Blog Tag!

I am super excited about this, as I have never participated in any blog tags before, let alone one a bookworm blog tag! And thanks to Joelle at Sword of the Penmaiden for tagging me!

So let’s get started with our Bookworm Blog Tag:


  1. Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you. (Thanks again, Joelle!)
  2. Include the tag graphic in your post
  3. Answer the ten questions the blogger asked
  4. Nominate between five and ten bloggers
  5. Ask your nominees ten book-related questions!
  6. Don’t feel bound to these rules
  7. (Most importantly) Have fun!


Did you ever read a book twice in a row?

Honestly… No. I have reread books before, but never twice in a row because I normally like to read new and awesome things, not the same things over and over.

What would you retitle a book you like and why?

I’m actually going to have to go with what Joelle said on this one: I would retitle Wingfeather Tales to something else. I’m not sure what I would retitle it to, but I know Wingfeather Tales aren’t quite accurate.

Would you buy a book just because the cover is beautiful?

Nope. Mostly because I prefer not to waste my money on books I might not like in the end and I prefer to research things before I buy them.

Paperback, hardback, audiobook, or ebook?

Definitely hardback. Paperbacks are too flimsy for me, and I don’t like the digitalness of audiobooks and ebooks. So yeah, hardbacks win.

What is the name you would choose if you could name the child of a character you like?

Well, first of all, if I was naming a character from The Wingfeather Saga (my favorite book series), then I would name Janner and Sara’s child. If it was a boy, I would name him Dwayne (because I like that name, and also because Dwayne was one of the first fellows), and if it was a girl, then I would name her Nora.

When a character says something you don’t like, have you ever mocked them out of annoyance?

Not really. But I will get frustrated in my mind, and then I’ll go and rant to my friends about how I hate that particular scene or something.

What is the ideal length of a series for you?

I think three or four books. If there are any more than that, then the series seems too overdone and unrealistic. Unless, of course, books 5 and up feature a different main character.

Have you ever secretly enjoyed a hated cliche?

Yep. Love triangles. I love them. Even if they aren’t well done, I still love them.

What is a series you want to read that is high on your TBR?

Hmm…. well, I have exactly 186 books on my TBR list right now, so that’s hard. I really really really want to reread The Wingfeather Saga, whenever I have time. I also want to read The Door Within trilogy by Wayne Thomas Batson, the Stone Braide Chronicles by Bonnie S. Calhoun, the Flight and Flame Trilogy by R.J. Anderson, and possibly some others that I don’t remember right now.

If you could choose five characters to put in a book together, who would they be and why?

Wow, I have never thought about that before!

I think it would have to be Sage/Jaron from the Ascendance Series, Kalmar from the Wingfeather Saga, Picket and Helmer from the Green Ember, and Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. They would make an epic team.

Sorry if not all you guys do tags! Here are the questions I came up with, although they aren’t that great compared to the ones I answered above:

  • What is your favorite book/series? [I know, awesome question]
  • Have you ever been entertained by a non-fiction book?
  • Who is your favorite protagonist (from any book)?
  • Who is your favorite antagonist (from any book)?
  • What is your favorite fiction genre?
  • Have you ever read a book that you hated all the way through?
  • What are your reading goals for this year?
  • In estimation, how long was your longest rant about a book?
  • Do you prefer to read books all in one sitting, or savor them for a long time?
  • Do you prefer classics or modern fiction?

Well, that’s it for today! See you guys next week!

    Awesome post and thank you so much for the tag!!! I’ve done it once but so glad I get a redemption round cuz I was just looking over my post for the last time I was tagged and it is so cring xD

    1. Annabelle Avatar

      Lol, can’t wait to read your second post then.

    Ooo I LOVE the characters you want put together!! Jaron, Kalmar, Picket and Helmer, and Aragorn. That is awesome. XD

    1. Annabelle Avatar

      Thanks! Now that I think about it, it would be pretty cool to write a story about all of them together. They would probably create a whole lot of trouble together… especially Jaron and Kalmar. xD

    Great post, Annabelle! And I soo agree: Sage, Kalmar, and Aragorn…that would be just AWESOME! XD

    1. Annabelle Avatar

      Thank you! Yeah, they would make a pretty cool team! (also possibly a dangerous one xD)

    Thanks for the tag, Annabelle! 😀
    This is the second time I’ve been tagged for this and I still haven’t done it yet… XD

    I haven’t read Green Embers or know their characters, but Sage, Kalmar, and Aragorn would be such an awesome/crazy team.

    1. Annabelle Avatar

      Lol, I get that… blog tags can be hard to keep up with! Yeah, those characters together…. I can’t imagine how much fun/havoc they would cause.

  6. Meredith Avatar

    I agree, the characters you added together would be great, I love Jaron and Kalmar especially!

    1. Annabelle Avatar

      Yeah, they actually kind of have similar personalities… except Jaron might be a bit more crazy than Kalmar.

      Yeah, I agree! I’d actually never done a blog tag before now, so this was super cool!

    Now that you mention it, “Wingfeather Tales” could refer to the whole series. Hm, that’s a good point…
