January TBR!

 

Monthly TBR
I am a bit late with my TBR this month but I am going to set up a short list for the rest of January! This month is jam packed with blog things! I am drafting and scheduling a lot of posts so bear with me while I get the Readorkable blog up and running smoothly! Also, If you’d be interested in being a co-blogger send me an email and we can work something out! I’d love to have a diversity of people and passions on the blog.

For the rest of January, I am going to try to read my Bout of Books left overs and and I’ll throw in a few other books for diversity’s sake!

Bout Of Books 15: “Would You Rather?” Challenge

 The wonderful Lori from Writing My Own Fairy Tale is hosting the Challenge for today. Now, please excuse the lack of polish for this post. I’m blogging from my phone at the Starbucks in Chapters.   

As I took this picture I noticed I was on the wrong week. I’m apparently still in 2015. Yay for time traveling!

Here are my answers to the Challenge!

Link up yours in the comments so I can read yours!

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?

Answer: NEITHER! KEEP THAT BOOK. YOU’VE SOILED IT! But since this is “would you rather” I’ll pick the dog eared option since its at least hygienic. 

Would you rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?

Answer: That’s a tough one. I’ll say I’d like to meet a character of my choice. I could witness Magic of I decided to meet Harry Potter for example! How cool would that be!

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?

Answer: I’ll be honest here. Book stores are my jam. I like to own my books. I develop feelings and having to let them go after isn’t easy for me. So this is easy: if be ok to never be allowed in a library again. I haven’t been in one in quite a while actually. 

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?

Answer: I’d choose to have one of my favourites couples break up. Death is just so final. If they break up they can still find love again. 

Would you rather:
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?

Answer: I’ve read twilight 4 times as it is. I’m done. So The Scarlet Letter it is! Plus it’s a fine book. 

Well that’s all folks! Keep coming back. There’ll be lots of fun stuff coming!

Your bookish nerd, Readorkable.
