TAG: Bookish Academy Awards

Hey!

This idea was originally devised by BOOKadoodles on Youtube. For more info, check out her vid, Original Tag: Bookish Academy Awards! :)

I was tagged by the lovely Brittany @ This is the Story of My (Reading) Life. Check her out! :)

Basically, BOOKadoodles just broke it down into these 15 categories, but in relation to books. I tried my best to keep it 2013 related (but some of it is 2012), without repeating any nominations (epic fail). It did prove to be a bit difficult, especially since I didn't read very much last year and I didn't see all the book-to-movie adaptions that I wanted to...yet. ;P

But here it goes...



Best Actor/Best Male Protagonist

Damned

Howl's Moving Castle


Best Actress/Best Female Protagonist

Cinder


Best Cinematography/Best Plot Twist

Top Ten Tuesday III


Well, this is just awesome, really, since I missed so many of these prompts so far this year, some of which I really wanted to do. So, here it goes...


February 25: Top Ten Tuesday REWIND! 
(Pick from previous topics that you want to do again or may have missed)

So I picked...

January 28: Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In 
OR 
Top Ten Characters I'd NEVER Want To Trade Places With


11-13. I mean, it's not the freaking zombie apocalypse, but...I'd rather not.

9-10. Nope. Nope, nope, nope.

8. I'd probably die of dehydration before anything else...

7. I'd rather not die of the plague, if you don't mind...

5-6. I'm not a true fan of the Inheritance Cycle, (only read the first two books) but this is one world I'd rather not dwell in.

4. I've only read the first, but I know that, definitely, not a wishful vacation spot.

1-3. Much as I'm not a fan of this series, this has to the be top one. I mean, seriously... No one wants to live in these books. No one.

Top Ten Tuesday II


Urgh, so I haven't done this in quite awhile...and I missed a couple that I actually really wanted to do. Oh well... So I guess this week's is geared more towards Valentine's Day, and to be completely honest, I don't generally read romances, or books with romantically influenced plots. So coming up with ten books, of that sort, that I would actually recommend, was a bit tricky. But I did my best. :P
