Bedtime Book Tag!

Hi everyone!
I was nominated for this tag by Kathryn, and I am so excited to do this! It looked so fun and I loved her post, so here it is!:D
 
1. A Book That Kept You Up All Night-
KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES! Those books would always make me really upset when I had to go to sleep. I am SO EXCITED FOR THE NEXT KEEPER TO COME OUT IN NOVEMBER!!! IT'S SO CLOSE!!!!
 
2. A Book That Made You Scared To Sleep
Hm, I really don't read a lot of scary books, but I do remember one night I was reading the first book in The Seven Wonders series for the first time and I was already anxious so I became worried that what was happening to Jack would happen to me since he had just turned 13 and I had just turned 13 at that time.;) But I love that series now. I AM ALSO VERY VERY EXCITED FOR THE RELEASE OF THE NEXT BOOK FOR THAT SERIES TOO!!!
 
3. A Book That Made You Go To Sleep
Hmmmm, usually if there are books that are THAT boring, I end up not reading it...Lemme go look at my book cases and see! BRB!;)
 
Okay, I'm back and I have three books that I was too bored to finish reading-
 
Theater Shoes by Noel  Streatfield
I was so bored when I began this book, I got to page four and couldn't continue! LOL!
 
Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes
I couldn't finish this book either. Really, some historical books are just SO boring (but I do love exciting historical fiction)! They get so bogged down with the details that I feel like there isn't a plot! You all will think I'm crazy, but I really can't read any classics!

OH MY GOSH!!!! FORGET ALL OF THOSE BOOKS I JUST LISTED!!! THEY ARE THE BEST BOOKS IN COMPARISON TO TREASURE ISLAND.
WORSE BOOK EVER!!!!!!
I absolutely DETEST that book. I can't believe I even finished it! It was so boring it took me a couple weeks to finish! UGH!
 
4. A Book That Left You Tossing And Turning All Night In Anticipation Of It's Release
Keeper! SO KEEPER! But, if I have to say a new book each time, then I would say....
Story's End by Marissa Burt. When I read the first book in the sequel, I was dying to read the second one!:D
 
5. A Book That Has Your Dream Boyfriend/Girlfriend
*sigh* This is Keeper again.
I WILL MARRY FITZ!!!!XD LOL!
He's so perfect and just all around AMAZING!!!! But I would totally date...OH MY GOSH I CAN'T REMEMBER HIS NAME! OH! KEEFE! Oh my gosh, that was so weird. I couldn't remember his name for so long! I feel so bad!XD
But yeah, Keefe and Fitz. I tell the book covers how gorgeous they are. I think I might have a problem.....;)
 
6. A Book That Would Be Your Worse Nightmare To Live in
I had to think about this for a bit, but I decided on Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Probably because the author inside of the book got to meet the terrible villain that he had created and how he was so terrified. And just seriously CAPRICORN IS SO SCARY! I really wouldn't want to meet him!
(Also, that book is one of THE best books and I recommend it if you don't mind a ton of swearing. Really, I don't know why people have to add a swear word to every page! AND TO A CHILDREN'S BOOK!)
 
7. A Book That Reminds You Of Night Time
I'm going to have to say Pegasus by Kate O'Hearn just because the cover was painted to look like night time.:)
 
8. A Book That Had A Nightmarish Cliffhanger
Uhhhh, I feel like a lot of the books I read don't have that great of cliff hangers. I'm going to have to consult my book cases again...Enthschuldigung...(German for excuse me.;))
 
Okay, so I didn't find a lot of books with epic cliffhangers, but I remember that the Half Upon A Time series had some good ones!:)
 
 9. A Book That You Actually Dreamed About
Hm, I can't recall dreaming about a book (yeah, I'm boring, sorry:/). I'm more of the person to dream about shows, for instance, Sherlock has come into my dreams many times!;)
But I have daydreamed about books a lot before, like myself being characters in books.;)

10. A Book Monster You Wouldn't Want Want To Find Under Your Bed-
There are so many creepy monsters in the book universe, but I think that waking up with a Bog Noblin under your bed would be TERRIFYING! Bog Noblins are from the book The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham. I really want the next book in that series!:)

Well, that's it! That was super fun and I really loved making this post! I can get really crazy about books. Especially one in particular...hehe!;)

I tag anyone who loves historical fiction books!:D

  1. Great post! Your answer to the "dream boyfriend" question is really funny xD

    Do the American Girl books count as historical fiction?

    1. Yay! Another Keeper fan! We should call ourselves Keepers! Wouldn't that be fun?;) Oh MY GOSH! I KNOW!!! LITERALLY, (I am not kidding you) the cover art is my phone's screen saver! I have probably memorized the whole thiing!XD I love how we can see Biana too! She really is as pretty as the book says! And I'm so glad Keefe is on the cover too! I love Keefe!XD I want to see more of Fitz too though!;) Can't they have all of the characters on the book cover?XD
      Sorry for my crazy fan girl attack, I just can't help it!;)

    2. Lol, I don't mind at all! It would be fun to call ourselves Keepers! I love Keefe too, he is probably my favorite character, other than Sophie of course. ;)

      Delete
    3. Yes! We shall now make it a thing and spread the word!;) Oh, yeah! He's awesome! I love his character, he's complex and he seems so real!:)

    4. I agree! Are you the least bit curious if the books will ever reveal what The Great Gulon Incident really was? ;)

      Delete
    5. I am so curious about that! But I have a feeling that Keefe may never tell! He's such a prankster!;)
      -Emma-

      Delete
    6. He'd better tell at some point- I'm dying to know! :D

      Delete
    7. LOL! Yeah! I'm really anxious to know too! All this talk about Keeper is making me want to read the books again! I think I'm gonna read them after I finish the book I'm reading right now!;)

    8. Yay! We can both be all caught up for when the new one comes out!:) How many times have you read the series?:)
      -Emma-

      Delete
    9. About 3 times now. :) I keep going back and reading my favorite parts again and again!

      Delete
    10. Oh, I know how that is!;) This time will be my third time.:) What's some of your favorite parts of the books?:)
      -Emma-

      Delete
    11. Hmm..... for some reason I actually like when Sophie and Dex get kidnapped..... I also love the part when Sophie heals Alden's mind (and Fitz's apology beforehand) I laugh at how Keefe is always getting Sophie into detention with him.... I could go on forever! :D

      Delete
    12. LOL! Well they all are great parts! I really like Fitz's apology too! Oh, I know! And each person's form of torture for the students! It's hilarious!XD I really like when Keefe and Sophie first meet and when the kids are playing Base Quest and when Sophie finds she has another different kind of power!;)
      -Emma-

      Delete
    13. Agreed- I love it all! :) Who are your least favorite characters?

      Delete
    14. Hm, I really love every character for different reasons... Ooh! WAIT! I really don't like Brant! He's really creepy, and some of the councilors I don't like, like a certain ancient elf!XD Who is your least favorite character?
      -Emma-

      Delete
    15. Um.... I'm gonna have to say both of Keefe's parents. I always feel so sorry for him! :( Yeah, Brant is super creepy! And that certain ancient elf isn't my favorite either. ;)

      Delete
    16. Oh yeah! I forgot about them! There are so many characters in those books I have no idea how Shannon Messanger keeps them all straight!XD Who is your favorite side character (Elwin, Alden, etc)?
      -Emma-

      Delete
    17. Let's see... I am going through them all.... Grady/Edaline, Alden/Della, Elwin, Silveny, Iggy, Biana, and Jensi. :)

      Delete
    18. They are all awesome characters! I think my favorites have to be Alden, Elwin, and Grady! I really like the male characters for some reason!;)

    19. Me too! Have you read the first chapter of Neverseen? It is in the back of Everblaze of you buy it sometime soon! I recently got the series and was able to read it!

      Delete
    20. No! I haven't read it yet! I bought Everblaze immediately, so I didn't get the preview! Maybe when I'm at Barnes and Noble, I can spend my time reading it!XD
      -Emma-

      Delete
    21. Ooh! Yeah, that's a good idea! Hope you get to read it soon!

      Delete
    22. Thanks! Me too! I just finished the book I was reading, so now I'm starting the series again! I'm feeling fan girly!;)
      -Emma-

      Delete
    23. Heehee! Me too! What book were you reading?

      Delete
    24. Yay! I was reading the second book in the Waggit Trilogy. It's about a stray dog who lives with a team of dogs in a park. It's a really good trilogy, especially if you like animal books or survival stories!:)

    25. Cool! I read the first one and LOVED it- I need to read the rest!

  4. Aw, that's too bad that you didn't like Johnny Tremain and Treasure Island. Treasure Island is my sister's favorite pirate book. ;) And I liked Johnny Tremain a lot, even though he was prideful. That's usually why I don't like books so much, if they have bad characters.

  5. I read Robinson Crusoe once...except I only got two pages in and I was like 'no this is too boring'. My dad says it doesn't get interesting until 100 pages in...he was forced to read it in 3rd grade...

    But other than that I love books!

    1. Oh gosh! That sounds terrible, but that is so me! If I don't like it, there is practically a 99 percent chance I will not be reading it.XD
