Thank you to Jackie at Fall in Love with the Sounds of Words blog. This tag is challenging and thought provoking.
No rules per se but the idea of this tag is to note times you did something wrong or messed up when it comes to books and then tag a few people.
A Character’s Appearance You Misread or Imagined Differently
I was totally floored by the way Isles of Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen was portrayed by Sasha Alexander and admit it was a total departure from how I pictured Maura Isles and still do when I read the series.
A Character Name You’ve Been Pronouncing Incorrectly
Most Irish names prior to this year, but I have googled and learned how to pronounce Aoife.
An Overused Trope That Is Your Guilty Pleasure
Strong women who turn out to be the villain. I don’t get to read as many of these as I would like but it’s liberating to see women in the villain role with character flaws.
A Cliched Character Type You Enjoy Viewing On Screen Than Reading About
The FBI men in black suits, circa The X-Files: dull on page but you know they’ll drive the story forward on screen.
A Word/Phrase You Learned Because of Its Use In A Book
I’m coming up totally blank on this one. I should probably highlight and save any of these for future reference.
Have You Ever Not Read or Completed a Required Reading Book For School
No. I have always finished reading books I was given in English lit.
Have You Ever (Or Wanted To) Skipped A Chapter From the POV of a Character You Weren’t Interested In
Yes, I’ve wanted to, but no I didn’t as I was mindful of missing important points.
Have You Ever Cancelled Social Plans To Read A Book
Yes. Unapologetically. And I would do it again when the book I’m reading is too good to put down.
