I used to play on the Nintendo when I was a kid…but honestly, the Nintendo DS was my jam when I entered the tween years. I could play the weird Sims game where you were off in the deserted Sim desert and there was aliens? And cows. I definitely remember the cows. Not much else, though.
ANYWAY, I was super excited and thankful when Joana @ Bookneeders tagged me and then Nadwa @ Painfully Fictional did as well. They both have wonderfully fabulous book blogs, and I’m always so jealous of how pretty they make their blogs…and fun their posts are. 😉 Check out Joana’s here and Nadwa’s here to join in their bookish fun!
Let’s begin…before I go off on weird old Nintendo DS games I remember!
1. NES (NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM): A CLASSIC YOU WANT TO READ
The rest of Oscar Wilde’s work! I read The Importance of Being Earnest last year, and I was soooo in love. The man is unnaturally witty, and I can’t wait to dive back into his wonderful writing. I will probably want to start with The Picture of Dorian Gray.
2. SNES (SUPER NINTENDO): A SEQUEL YOU LIKED MORE THAN THE FIRST (CAN BE A SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES)
My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison! Don’t get me wrong – I still loveeeee the first one, but Hudson was so super swoony. He totally stole my fairytale-loving heart. I couldn’t help but love this book a bit more. But seriously, read this series!! It’s so hilariously epic and adorable.
3. NINTENDO 64: A BOOK THAT REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THE WORLD
You know, truthfully, I’m not sure there has been a book that has changed the way that I looked into the world drastically. I read a lot for entertainment and as a bit of an escape from real world issues, so I tend to stay away from the deep, insightful books. If I have read any, their titles are all escaping me now. 😄
4. GAMECUBE: A POPULAR BOOK THAT DID NOT GO OVER SO WELL WITH YOU
…well, next week I’ll be posting my review of this book here, but um, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. There really was nothing wrong with it – I just couldn’t get into it, and trust me, I’m super sad about it myself since I expected the hype would actually work out for this one. *waits for the mass exodus of fellow book bloggers*
5. WII: A NEW FAVORITE BOOK
Well, if you’re still here, my last favorite book was Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I’m super, super weird about my favorites shelf. I’ve read over a 1000 books, but I have only 34 official favorites. I’m a mess…or my book hipsterness is really showing. 😄
6. NINTENDO POWER: FAVORITE GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES OR A SERIES YOU WANT TO START
Lol, obviously, Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer. I had to get TLC in here somewhere, right? Now, where is Six of Crows going to go? 😉
7. SUPER MARIO: A CHARACTER THAT YOU’D LOVE TO SQUISH LIKE A GOOMBA
That one guy in Crooked Kingdom. No spoilers but if you’ve read the book, you know why and who I’m talking about. -_- ALSO, I apparently just needed to look at the next question for my answer to the above question. 😄
8. ZELDA: A NEWER FANTASY THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE A MODERN CLASSIC
Six of Crowssssssss. Goodness, I really need to read more books. 😄
9. SAMUS-ARAN: FAVORITE SCI-FI NOVEL OR ONE YOU WANT TO READ
Okay, I’ve used enough TLC references, so here’s one that I would like to read: The Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza! It looks so good, and it’s sitting so pretty on my shelf, calling out to me.
10. POKEMON: BOOK EDITIONS THAT YOU WANT TO COLLECT
I really want the UK edition of Caraval. It’s sooooo pretty. Me wants.
11. DONKEY KONG: A BOOK WITH ORIGINAL CHARACTERS
I’m going to use My Unfair Godmother again. It has a sucky fair godmother, a gambling leprechaun, a problematic Robin Hood, and so much more!
12. NINTENDO FANDOM: FAVORITE NINTENDO GAME(S) OR GAME
Errrrrrr…crazy Alien Sims thing?
Tag…you’re it (in the most polite and kind way if you would like to – no worries if not):
I tried to pick some newish people for tags, so hopefully you like them? D: Let me know if you enjoy doing tags as well in the comments below, and what were some of your choices for these questions?
Also, I’m finally hoping I will have the giveaway details all straightened up by tomorrow and it will be added to tomorrow’s post. Let’s all hope and pray to the book gods Mandy figures out Rafflecopter right. 😄
