Get To Know Me

gettoknowme

Hello lovelies! Today I’m doing a fun tag called, Get To Know Me. I was tagged by Kathryn over on Nosestuckinabookblog over a month ago. You should definitely check out her blog. She has great reviews and other awesome contents! Anyway, this post has been in my draft ever since, but I finally had time to finish it and add some book photos too. So let’s do this!


Favorite color and do you have the book in that color? 
I honestly can’t pick just one. Teal/Turquoise, Pink, Purple and Black.

Describe yourself in 3 Book Characters?
Lara Jean Song from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – I’m Asian and mixed (1/4 Chinese and 3/4 Filipina -), have natural black hair (although I’ve been dyeing it purple and magenta the last 2-3 years), and I love keeping sentimental items (I still have old love letters from previous childhood crushes, movie tickets, and some other memorabilia).

Cather “Cath” Avery from Fangirl – I’m shy, an introvert, and a bit awkward. I get anxiety when I’m around new people and places and it usually takes a while to warm up to people.

Jillian “Jilly” Eldridge from Kissing Max Holden– I love baking and cooking.

Hyped books yay or nay? If yay, what was the most hyped book you ever read? If nay, what was the most hyped book you decided not to read?
Yay. I love books in general so I’m open to reading anything hyped or not. The most hyped book I’ve read is the Twilight series when it first came out. Then Hunger Games. I have other hyped books/series on my TBR that I haven’t read, but I’ll eventually get to them.


Recommend one book per season. Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter

Spring – To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

toalltheboys

Summer – Any Kasie West Book. Her books are fun, adorable, and just the perfect summer reads.

Fall – any books from The Doon Series by Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp

Winter – any books from Lunar Chronicles or The Young Elites Series

Name one book that wrecked you emotionally.
There are so many, but Hopeless by Colleen Hoover always comes to mind. However, the most recent one is A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck.

Name a book that you always recommend to everybody you know.
Lunar Chronicles, Legend Series, Shatter Me Series, Kasie West Books, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series.

What book would you recommend with tea and cookies?
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon.

What is your guilty pleasure book?
Pretty much any New Adult contemporary romances. Some of my faves are the Wait for Me Series by J.Lynn (Jennifer Armentrout), Vicious by L.J. Shen and Royally Series by Emma Chase.

Favorite dessert and a book that reminds you of that.
This is a tough one. I love desserts in general but my favorite(s) are soft baked chocolate chip cookies, chocolate ice cream, Filipino leche flan, and coffee cake.

Chocolate chip cookies and coffee cake has to be To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han or Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

waitforyou

Chocolate ice cream has to be Love and Gelato by Jenna Evan Welch

Filipino Leche Flan The Crowns Game by Evelyn Skye because of all the delicious sugary desserts in that book.

Are you a procrastinator? What book have you been procrastinating reading?
No…but I have a lot of series I need to start or finish. The Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, SJM books, and Always and Forever Lara Jean just to name a few… Sometimes I’m not in the mood, want to wait to binge the series, or want to reread before the last book.

  1. 1.) purple hair, hell yes
    2.) this is me urging you to read the mortal instruments, because all of the books in that universe are my children
    3.) I was actually thinking of how I could do a “hello yes, this is me and this is the stuff I like” post and still keep it relevant so thank you for tagging me and solving that problem haha

  2. Thank you for the tag!

    Also: Why purple / pink / magenta [too lazy to scroll up again, sorry]?! MAKE IT RAINBOW.
    I’ve been dreaming of rainbow hair for years. Warcross hasn’t helped the dream.
    Someday I’ll do it. Maybe the day I won’t risk my job if I show up to work like that.. Ugh.

    • I actually would LOVE rainbow/unicorn hair, but it’s probably too much for work so I have to settle with pink and purple. Never at the same though…BUT since I’ll be in NY for a few days, I might do semi-permanent purple to pink hair… Depends on how tired I get today. If not, I’ll probably just do magenta =)
