What Cats Do Book TAG

Bonjour our friends!! We were nominated by cat-lover Joana Duarte @ Book Needers. SHE HAS A CAT!! …We want a cat…๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž Anyways go check out her blog, she writes super cool stuff and it’s always fun to read ’em!! And she has a CAT!! She practically has the full package of a super booklover – Books, blog, and CATS!!

*short story alert*

We actually have a funny (well…not that funny) story about cats (when we were younger of course) – When our beautiful mother was hanging up the washing in the garden, we being the mischevious twins we were (probs still are ๐Ÿ˜‰) went outside and played with a stray cat! Soooย we played and played and then got tired of course – so we dosed off outside…with the cat fast asleep in between us!
Our mother wasn’t happy! Our mother picked us up by our collar (?) and into the bath tub…

We didn’t even get to say bye…๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

The Rules:

Let us begin this cat business!!! XD

[We put links to the Goodreadsย profile of the books mentioned down below]

PURR โ€“ AS CATS DO THIS WHEN THEYโ€™RE HAPPY OR RELAXED, WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT MAKES YOU HAPPIEST OR RELAXED?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians seriesย and Heroes of Olympus series By Rick Riordan

The world that Rick Riordan has built up, for us readers is absolutely captivating. These books have a permanentย slot in our hearts. All things mystical, fictional and adventurous can be found in these books that we were fortunate to be blessed with from dear Uncle Rick. These books are the pure definition of happiness and relaxation!!

SLEEPย โ€“ WHAT IS A BOOK THAT PUT YOU TO SLEEP OR WAS JUST BORING?ย 

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)Evermore (The Immortals, #1)

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls series) By Maggie Stiefvater and Evermore (The Immortals series) By Alyson Noel.

Well, where to begin….we don’t like to be those people (who say bad things about books)….buuuut for us these books reallyย did put us to sleep – we mean no offense if any taken. Stories are meant to be engraved into our minds and making us lose sleep (like a lot of sleep), but these books we’ve mentioned just has no real action. For us, If books were a volcano they should be active and ready to erupt… however, these books were very dormant.ย If we were to describe the Shiver series storyline (when it was a trilogy) in a few words it would be ‘A girl, a guy, and wolves’. We are sure that you can see from those words how generic and predictable the book is. Disappointmentย is what we feel…it’s true what they say don’t judge a book by its cover ( BTW the cover was b-e-a-utiful).

Evermore was undoubtedly one of the most unsatisfying books that I, Tanya have read – 2 books in and I DNFed the series. And guess what, I feel no regretย ๐Ÿ˜.

Now what we want from a book, is to have many twists and turns that if we were told to describe it, it would be the most difficult task bestowed upon us as there really isn’t any existingย words to describe such a beautiful, emotion-wrecking masterpieces. So…basically, a rollercoasterย ride transporting you to the unknown…is this too much to ask? ๐Ÿ˜ž

TWITCH WHILE DREAMING โ€“ HAVE YOU EVER DREAMT OF A BOOK YOU READ?

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

Anglefallย By Susan Ee

This book is a cute edition to our souls!! This book makes us daydream as well as night..dream? Does that make sense?

For our Angelfall review – click here.

Honourable mention:ย Sarah J. Maas books – we basically live in the worlds she has created…so it’s not actually dreaming per say ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰.

SEEMS TO PLAY NICEโ€ฆUNTIL THE CLAWS ARE OUTย โ€“ WHICH BOOK HAD THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)

Maze Runner By James Dashner

*SPOILERS*

When we first read the book we were not expecting to find out that the maze was created to help find a cure to a disease that has made people into zombie-like people. ย There are many plot twists within this science fiction series that fed our book-consumed souls. This book has its flaws, but don’t all books??

CUDDLESย โ€“ WHICH BOOK CHARACTER WOULD YOU GIVE A HUG TO?

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

Liam in The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken and Kenji from Shatter Me series By Tahereh Mafi.

Liam is practically a cinnamon roll. While reading the book we basically imagined him as a physically, edible cinnamon roll. And of course, the normal thing to do before eating a warm cinnamon roll ๐Ÿคค …you give it a hug?? heheย ๐Ÿค—ย ๐Ÿค—

Kenji is without a doubt the most lovable character in the Shatter Me series. More importantly, we would like to be his friend and have that cute, fun friendship that he has with Juliette. Hopefully, in the 4th book (when it’s released), we will have a clearer insight into Kenji’s backstory. WE WANT MOREE!!ย ๐Ÿค“ย ๐Ÿค“

CATNIP โ€“ WHATโ€™S A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAVE WARM AND FUZZY FEELS?

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

PATCH! PATCH! PATCH!
He is full of fuzzy feels!! This brings back memories of the good ol’ times.

For our Hush, Hush review – click here.

CAT BREEDSย โ€“ WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?

We too have too many – thus will have to steal the idea of choosing a genre(s) instead, from Joana (who stole from Mandy) ๐Ÿ˜œ ๐Ÿ˜œ.

Young Adult (YA)
Fantasy
Paranormal
Sci-Fi
Adventure/Mythical

THE VETโ€™S OFFICE โ€“ YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BOOK:

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

We guess…the books that put us to sleep (i.e boring books) are also kinda our least favourite books. The first book wasn’t SOO bad…but for us…it drags and it is a story we can live without.

We mentioned this in The Candy Book Tag post – but yeah it’ll have to be Beautiful Creatures By Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohlย (this book put us off books for a while ๐Ÿ˜–)

BEING IN PLACES THEY SHOULDNโ€™T โ€“ LEAST FAVORITE CLICHE:

Image result for love triangle
A stereotypical love triangle (sooo overused!!)

The LEVEL of detail on love triangles. If a book solely relies on a love triangle as a base, it instantly becomes a book we don’t read. For example,ย the Twilight seriesย (which we didn’t read but know enough about). One book that has successfully used a love triangle that comes to our minds, would probably be the Shatter Me seriesย – ย and that’s only because there was more happening (more important things) other than the actual love triangle, and also the love triangle dissolved at the perfect time, unlike Twilight.

FINAL QUESTION: THE GOOD OLD CARDBOARD BOX โ€“ MOST UNDERRATED BOOK SERIES:

The Queen of All that Dies (The Fallen World, #1)The Queen of Traitors (The Fallen World, #2)The Queen of All that Lives (The Fallen World, #3)

There are many underrated books but this one pops out in our minds at this moment,ย The Queen of All that Dies (The Fallen World trilogy) By Laura Thalassa.

This trilogy is pure bliss XD XD !! We talked about it more in our 5 Books To Cure A Book Hangover post.

Our Nominations

That’s it for today! Comment down below your cat-ish stories!

Ciao from The Twins ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I loved this tag!! Cats are so adorable, I hope you guys can get one eventually!
    Love triangles are the worst indeed… Except for a few exceptions here and there (one of them being The Remnant Chronicles, which I’m reading right now ๐Ÿ˜Š)
    You make Shiver sound so boring and generic XD But I’m adamant to try it ๐Ÿ˜›
    Another lovely post, girls โค๏ธ

    1. Aw thanks!! We hope so too!! They’re just too cute!!โ™ฅโ™ฅ If you want to do this tag – we’d love to see your answers! Yes love triangles can be okay if executed correctly! By all means read the series – it was quite some time ago we’ve read it and we may have to reread it one day! It’s just from our memory we recall it could’ve been better and have a more in-depth storyline! We’d love to hear your views on the book once you’ve read it! XD XD Thanks!! โ™ฅโ™ฅ

  2. Thanks for tagging me! I actually did this tag a long while back, but I really enjoyed reading your answers and your cat story was adorable! So I’ll definitely tell you one of mine. When I was little I had a cat named Inky. Every night she would curl up by my head and I’d often wake up to her scratching my head with her claws and it alway felt so nice! However, there was a time when she started refusing to eat and hiding away in the closet and I thought I was going to loose her, but eventually we got her to drink water and eat food again and when once she was skinny she then got really fat and I was so happy because I knew we had saved her.

  4. Totally agree with you on Rick Riordan’s book and Shiver!!! I thought it was my problem that Shiver brought me to sleep because a lot of people like Maggie Stiefvater’s books. Haha. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Uncle Rick is always gonna be our go-to author, especially when we need a good read! ๐Ÿค“โคโค The thing is we probs found it okay at the time of reading but quickly found (due to exploring other books) that Shiver was not for us! Perhaps one day we’ll get back to it to either confirm our views or to challenge ’em ๐Ÿ˜…

  5. Ahaha thanks for tagging me guys!! Love the questions! I plan on doing a tag pretty soon, so it might be this one! I had considered reading Shiver, but decided against it; probably not a bad choice I guess! (My patience level reading is pretty bad lol) Ahhhh Twilight…what a perfect fit for the question! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Liked by 1 person

    1. You’re welcome!! We hope you get to do this tag – if so we cannot wait to see your answers!! To be honest Shiver probs would be a great read for those starting out into the book world (and at a younger age…) but it just didn’t satisfy us! We may or may not have to read it again to confirm what we feel or for it to be challenged!

      We didn’t read the Twilight series – but we have watched it and… Well you know…it wasn’t great ๐Ÿ˜… But the love triangle could literally sum up the entire series (for the movies anyways – ‘cuz we didn’t read the books and cannot confirm that lol๐Ÿ˜‚)!

  6. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ I never read Hush, Hush. And I don’t really know if I am too old for it now hahaha I still wanna try it but I’m not sure ๐Ÿ˜› But I am reading Shatter Me soon! I’m getting them for my birthday and everyone says great things about them ๐Ÿ˜
    And of course… I totally agree with the Rick Riordanโ€™s books!!
    Really enjoyed your answers and the mini story! But it’s so sad :<

    1. You’re welcome! โคYou should read Hush, Hush if you have time but also expect there to be flaws (which book doesn’t have flaws?!)! Also read Shatter Me knowing that the writing style is completely different – other than that it should be great!
      Rick’s books are just ace ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
      Thanks!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
      …and who knows one day we’ll meet the cat (we don’t even know it’s name!) again…

      1. I have way to many books to read that I am officially late to the party… My physical TBR is currently at 115 not counting with 7 I wanna buy this year… I definitely need to get moving >.< I will probably give Hush Hush a try after that tho! ^^
        That would be so great! Especially if the kitty recognized you ๐Ÿ˜ (Naive much? :P)

      2. That is a massive TBR – we kinda lost track! And we hope Hush, Hush lives up to your expectations!
        That would be a bonus… but first we need to recognise the kitty first!! LOL
