Pick a Word and Pass It On Book Tag

Leonie @ Life Has a Funny Way created this original tag. Participants pick a word and then find all of the books that contain that word, either in the title or in the author’s name. The original word was king.


  1. You can either take the word the person who tagged you used, or you can pick your own.
  2. You must list all the books on your read list which include that word in either the title or the author.
  3. Tag some friends and pass it on!

I found this tag here by Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books. So, I will use the same word:



  • Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • The Fire by James Patterson
  • City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore
  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling
  • Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder
  • Forest Fire by Tenaya Jayne
  • Midnight Fire by Melody Anne



  • Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch
  • Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan
  • Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
  • Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine


There are a lot of books with the word fire. Other words I considered were girl, daughter, and crown.




Full House Book Tag

BookTag FullHouse.png

I found the Full House Book Tag, created by Rose @ stuckinfiction, here: Kayla @ KDREWKTHEBOOKWORM’s. I love the TV show Full House. I was excited when Netflix announced the return of the amazing characters (minus Michelle), but, in my opinion, Fuller House doesn’t quite live up to the original.

Danny Tanner: A book that needs to be cleaned up because there are loose ends and plot holes.

I’m going to agree with Kayla (KDREWKTHEBOOKWORM) and say The Love Interest (review).


Joey Gladstone: A book that made you laugh.

The last book I read that made me laugh/smile was When Dimple Met Rishi (review).


Jesse Katsopolis: A book that has a great cover.

I could choose almost any book for this prompt. But I’ll go with . . . And I Darken (review), Now I Rise, and Wintersong (review).

Dj Tanner: A book or character that has taught you a lot.

Hmm this is a hard one. Can I be vague and say one of my many, expensive, college textbooks?

Stephanie Tanner: A book that you can’t stop talking about.

I recently finished the Darker Shades of Magic series, and I cannot stop thinking about them. I 100% recommend.

Michelle Tanner: A book or character that you quote a lot.

This is not a book or specific character, but I quote the Harry Potter movies . . . a lot.

 harry potter harry home hogwarts hogwarts is my home GIF

Rebecca Donaldson: A book or character that you relate to the most.

I’ve always found Katy from the Lux series to be very relatable.

Steve Hale: A book that you ate up (couldn’t put down).

I read Paper Princess (review), Broken Prince (review), and Twisted Palace (review) by Erin Watt in 6 or 7 hours straight when they were released.

Alex and Nicky Katsopolis: A book that needs a sequel.

I would say Heartless or any Sarah Dessen book.

Kimmy Gibbler: A book or character that you’ve grown to love.

Juliette from Cinder & Ella (review) and Happily Ever After.

I Tag.

Anyone. If you want to be tagged, let me know and I’ll add you to the list.


What about you?: What is your favorite TV show? What do you think about Full House and Fuller House? Do you agree with any of my choices?

Rapid Fire Book Tag


I haven’t done a book tag in a long while, so I found the Rapid Fire Book Tag. The original was created by Girl Reading, go check it out. Here are my fast answers.

1. eBooks or physical books?

Physical. I like being able to hold a book and take pictures of them. I enjoy having an overflowing bookshelf. However, I can read faster with an eBook.

2. Paperback or hardback?

Either. Hardcovers look great, and I like paperbacks because they are cheaper (But I hate it when the cover/pages get bent.).

3. Online or in-store book shopping?

In-store! If I look online, I usually let reviews influence my buying . . . and I worry a bad opinion will keep me from a great YA novel.

4. Trilogies or series?

Don’t care. I only care about whether the books are good and keep my interest.

5. Heroes or villains?

Villains who become heroes. I am a sucker for bad guys who turn good and work with the protagonist for some greater purpose. I also enjoy a sexy, witty hero, like Daemon Black. 😍

6. A book you want everyone to read?

This is cliché, I know, but the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

7. Recommend an underrated book.

The Iron Butterfly by Chanda Hahn. (series review)

8. The last book you finished?

Now I Rise by Kiersten White.

9. Weirdest thing you used as a bookmark?

Hair tie.

Book Problems for People with Long Hair

10. Used books, yes or no?

Sure, as long as the book is in good condition.

11. Top three favorite genres?

YA: 1) fantasy, 2) contemporary, 3) sci-fi.

12. Borrow or buy?

Buy. I love having my own books so that I may re-read them. And I don’t let other people borrow my book babies.

13. Characters or plot?

Both. It depends on the book. I’m ok with some character driven books, like And I Darken. But I like to have a plot in the books I read. If a book has both character and plot, then I am a very happy reader.

14. Long or short book?

Medium? I usually read books between about 300 – 700 pages.

15. Long or short chapters?

Both. Just like sentence variety, I believe an assortment is necessary to develop a non-monotonous voice and keep my attention.

16. Name the first three books you think of.

  1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
  2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  3. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

17. Books that make you laugh or cry?

Cry: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Laugh: Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis

18. Our world of fictional worlds?

Fictional. Our world is the perfect setting for contemporary novels, but fantasy worlds are better. I love being able to escape and visit new places. I also love seeing an author’s world-building.

19. Audiobooks: yes or no?


20. Do you ever judge a book by its cover?

Yes. The cover is what draws me to the book in the first place, and the synopsis determines if I will read the book.

21. Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?

Whichever stays the most true to the book.

22. A movie or TV adaptation you preferred to the book?

Not Eragon!!! Not Allegiant!!!

YA Book to Movie Adaptions

23. Series or standalone?

Series. Because, whether the book is a standalone or the last in a series, I always want more.

Emoji Book Tag

I was in the mood for a book tag and found the Emoji Book Tag from Blame It On Chocolate. Here are the original creators of the Emoji Book Tag: Liz from lizlovesliteratureJenny from JellafySanaa from InkBonesBooksDylan from dylanbooksMax from WellDoneBooksVilde from vforvildeScott from Scott Place. You choose 5 emojis: ones you like, ones you use most often, ones you used most frequently.

Here we go.

⚓️ Anchor

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller


Pirates, ships, and sirens, oh my! This book is set on the seas, with a kick-ass female protagonist.




🐺 Wolf Face

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis


I have read this series too many times to count. The main fantasy creatures are wolves, but Fey, Warlocks, Witches, and more join the party eventually. What I love the most is the intense, unbreakable friendship between Jaque, Jen, and Sally. If you are looking for female friendship and support in a YA book, then look no further.



🚀 Rocket

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid (review)


This book is set in the future where people live in space. Technology has obviously advanced, and readers follow the POV of a half-human, half-robot (a diabolic).




👽 Extraterrestrial Alien

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout


The main character, Katy, meets her new neighbors when she moves to West Virginia: Daemon and Dee. They are both very good looking and out of this world – literally. They aren’t you classic aliens, but are made of light and have the powers to prove it.



🎶 Multiple Musical Notes

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones (review)


This book has a huge emphasis on music and identity. This book was influenced by The Labyrinth, David Bowie, “The Magic Flute”, and Phantom of the Opera.




Since I wasn’t technically tagged to do this, I’m not going to tag anyone. This is a free-for-all; if you want to do the Emoji Book Tag, then consider yourself tagged. Have fun!

What books would you have chosen for anchor, wolf face, rocket, extraterrestrial alien, and multiple musical notes emojis?



Who Am I? Book Tag

I found this tag from Drizzle and Hurricane Books: Who Am I? Tag.

What is the meaning of my name?

“The meaning of the name ‘Jessica’ is: ‘Wealthy; Foresight, God Beholds’.”


What is my Myer-Briggs personality type? (Link)


INFJ-T = Advocate

What is my Zodiac Sign?

“The Lion
July 23 – August 22

The zodiac signs and meanings of Leo is about expanse, power and exuberance. Leo’s are natural born leaders, and they will let you know it as they have a tendency to be high-minded and vocal about their opinions. That’s okay, because if you observe, the Leo is usually correct in his/her statements. Leo’s have a savvy way of analyzing a situation and executing swift judgment with a beneficial outcome. It comes from being a leader. They are brave, intuitive, and also head-strong and willful. Beneath their dynamic persona lies a generous, loving, sensitive nature that they do not easily share with others. They might be a bit bossy, but those who know them understand this comes from a source need to do good, not (usually) from an inflated ego.”


What is my Hogwarts House? (Link)

HP-Hufflepuff.jpgMy in-depth results are:

“Hufflepuff – 15
Ravenclaw – 12
Gryffindor – 10
Slytherin – 6”


What are my Learning Styles? (Link)

My “scores were:

  • Visual 4
  • Aural 7
  • Read/Write 6
  • Kinesthetic 8″

Am I Right or Left Brain Dominant? (Link) 


What is my Blood Type?

I honestly have no idea. Sorry!

What Career Am I Meant To Have? (Link)


“You have a skill for language, your imagination is vast and you are artistic and creative. Your brain is just overflowing with ideas, and all you have to do is get a piece of paper and share it with the world. You were born to turn words into magical stories.”

Which Divergent Faction Do I Belong In? (Link)


“You belong with the selfless. You always find yourself lending a hand to others, and you seldom realize it. You truly care about the people around you, and you’re the first to notice when someone is under the weather. Just when you think you have a day to spend for yourself, you probably catch yourself listening to a friend dish about her problems instead. Some people might tag you as “boring”, but those closest to you know that you’re a simple gal with the purest of hearts.”

What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)

“The Firstborn

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.
Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel. Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.
When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.”

The New York Times “By the Book” Tag



I was tagged by the amazing Lois @ Lois Reads Books to do The New York Times “By the Book” Tag created here. Here is Lois’ post for this book tag.


What book is on your nightstand now?

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas. I’m so glad I’ve finally gotten around to reading this one. This was my most anticipated read of the year. Sadly, I’m in a bit of a book slump. I love the book, but I haven’t been able to finish it in over a month. 😦

What was the last truly great book you’ve read?

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. Sorry to be predictable but as my very last read and one of my favorite books, the Throne of Glass series takes the cake.

If you could meet any writer – dead or alive – who would it be? And what would you want to know?

Shakespeare. I don’t particularly love his writing, but he is a mysterious man. I would want to know about his life and confirm all of his pieces, since there is so little known about him. If I study abroad I will go to the United Kingdom where I would visit Shakespeare’s birthplace.

What books might we be surprised to find on your shelf?

Honestly, nothing. Almost all of my books are YA, some NA.

How do you organize your personal library?

By series. I keep all of the books together in order of their respective groupings/authors.

What book have you always meant to read and haven’t gotten around to yet?

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. This is next up on my TBR list.

Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you are supposed to like but didn’t?

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I could not get into this book. I read the first few pages and set it back down.

What kind of stories are you drawn to? Any you stay clear of?

Generally, I am drawn to…

almost anything YA especially fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, romance, and paranormal

…and I stay clear of:

erotica, religious or spiritual nonfiction/fiction, biographies, manga, and self-help novels.

If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?

My first thought was how to run a country for dummies. :/

What do you plan to read next?

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

Tag, you’re it!

1. What is your favorite childhood book? Was there one in particular that made you fall in love with reading?

Harry Potter is my favorite childhood book. It made me fall in love with reading from an early age. In middle school, both the Twilight series and the Mortal Instruments series encouraged my passion for books.

2. If you could do an interview for your blog with any author, who would you choose and why?

Sarah J. Maas. I love all of her books. She is my favorite auto-buy author. Her stories are amazing. It would be amazing to talk to her about the worlds she has created and about her writing process.

3.  Have you ever hated a book that everyone else loved?  If so, which book and what didn’t you like about it?

Yes. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I picked this book up, read a few pages, and then put it back down. I simply could not get into it. 

4.  What made you decide to become a book blogger and what have you learned along the way so far?

I love books and reading. Yep, shocking huh? I created this blog to share my opinions and talk with others about literature. This blog is also to connect with other bloggers, authors, and publishers to learn more about publishing, since that is the career I hope to go into. I have learned a lot about interacting with others, being social. I’m learning to put myself out there. 

5.  Aside from blogging and reading, what are some of your other hobbies?

Knitting, crocheting, writing, watching TV.

Joffrey Baratheon. Need I say more?

I’m not sure I would choose to leave where I am now. As much as I hate the winter season where I live, I love my hometown.

8.  What is the last book that made you cry?

The Fault in Our Stars. Both the book and the movie made me bawl my eyes out. John Green really knows how to toy with a reader’s emotions.

9.  What is your beverage of choice?

Coca-cola. Yes, I know it’s really bad for you. However, it is my go-to choice of drink for most meals, especially when I’m in a restaurant.

10. What are your favorite reads of 2016 so far?

11.  What is your favorite movie that was adapted from a book?

Harry Potter. This may be cheating because I answer HP for everything, but oh well! (YA Book to Movie Adaptions)

How to Train Your Dragon Book Tag (Original)

I haven’t done that many book tags. However, when I was watching the How to Train Your Dragon movie, I just knew I had to make a book tag. I have looked on the internet and have not yet come across a How to Train Your Dragon Book Tag. So, I decided to make one for myself and for you. It is quite lengthy so prepare yourself.



Disclaimer: How to Train Your Dragon belongs to Dreamworks Animation LLC.


  • You may use these graphics.
  • Link back to the original post and mention the creator (Jessica @ Pore Over the Pages).
  • Include the credits section at the bottom of this post.
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you.
  • Tag everybody, tag nobody, tag somebody.
  • Have fun!



Hiccup started out as a failure to his people. He wasn’t adept at dragon killing. Suddenly, he knows the ins and outs of the creatures he is supposed to despise. He becomes popular, and in turn he tries to use his fame to create an alliance between the humans and the dragons. In the end, he changes the minds and hearts of everyone in Berk.

Black City by Elizabeth Richards. It took me a while to get into this book. I started it, read a little, stopped, and then started the process again. Finally, I picked up again and enjoyed the read. I eventually finished the series.



Astrid is the fierce female viking. She is strong and smart, the perfect contender to be a dragon killer. She is suspicious of Hiccup and eventually discovers his secret. Once she sees the beauty in and of the dragons, she is usually by Hiccup’s side. She stands for her beliefs and helps her friend to the very end.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Celaena Sardothien. Celaena is a fierce, female assassin. She is strong, intelligent, and enduring.



Stoick the Vast. He is the leader of the vikings of Berk. He is strong, determined, and caring. He can be thoughtless, but he does feel responsible for his people. He loves his family. After a while, he sees reason and recognizes his son’s greatness. He is a proud man, but he is even more proud of his son in the end.

J.K. Rowling. Rowling paved the way for female authors. Harry Potter is the best book series in the world. She knows her creative space like the back of her hand. She also stands for the extraordinary and social justice.



Valka goes out on her own to live with the dragons. She knows untold secrets and comes out of nowhere in the second movie. She sees the world in a different light, like her son. Nowadays, most books are a part of a series. Authors have a hard time containing their words and creative worlds = lucky us!

1984 by George Orwell. This standalone novel turned out to be one of my favorite classics after I read it in high school. The plot, characters, and ideas all intrigued me and pushed my intellectual boundaries.



Gobber is loyal and funny. He is a teacher, friend, blacksmith, and so much more. He supports Stoick and Valka, Hiccup, and all others. “He’s a bit gruff, but his heart is always in the right place.” (credit) If you were Gobber, which book characters would you ship?

Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Daemon and Katy. I relate so much with Katy and bad boy Daemon is so hot.



Snotlout is impulsive. He speaks his mind and does what he wants. He is rude and also flirty. If he was a book lover, I’m sure he would buy a book because of an enticing cover, intriguing synopsis, or just because he can. Is there a book that you bought simply because?

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. (review) I loved the cover. I had heard of the title before on Twitter, but hadn’t looked into it. The bookstore didn’t have the original book I was searching for, so I went for it.



Family and friends are the most important aspect in one’s life. Sometimes the representations in books are optimal (while other times the representation is non-existent). Books can contain perfect, desirable relationships that we all want to be a part of, so choose a book with a family or friend bond that you wish were real in your own life.

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis. Jacque, Sally, Jen. These three girls have a bond that I envy with a passion. They know each other so well. They can finish each other’s sentences, talk in code, quote movies, and play the most hilarious games.



Fishlegs is intelligent. He knows dragons by the book, and by the book only. He inspires knowledge in himself and in others. As with Fishlegs, sometimes books make one want to learn something new, research a new topic, try a new experience, or go somewhere exciting. Name a book that makes you want to expand you horizons.

Collide by Shelly Crane. (review). Sign language. I actually wanted to learn sign language after watching Switched at Birth on ABC Family. I bought a book and started practicing through the internet, but then life caught up with me. After recently reading Collide, I realized I still have the desire to learn sign language. However, I need to find the time and devotion to fulfill this dream.



Toothless is a Night Fury. He is the only one left of his kind, making him extremely rare. He is loyal, fast, intelligent, and cute. Find the bookish equivalent to Toothless, a novel that is not read too often/under-hyped that you adore.

Iron Butterfly by Chanda Hahn. I really love this series. I think it is unique and covers intense issues while still incorporating YA fantasy aspects. I think this book needs more recognition and readers.


Boulder Class.png

Those in the Boulder Class are solid and resilient. Meatlug in particular is tough, obstinate, slow, and lazy. Sometimes it is hard to pick up the motivation one needs to complete a task. Other times, there are bumps in the road, rocky obstacles that get in one’s way. Despite the struggle, we have to rise about the challenge and persevere.

The Tiger Saga by Colleen Houck. Kelsey Hayes. (review of Tiger’s Curse) Throughout the course of this series, Kelsey faces so many obstacles. She fights physical and mental demons. She has to build her confidence, deal with two love interests, travel the world, take classes, and so much more all as a teenager. Her adventures take her through so many obstacles, yet she comes out on the other side stronger for it.


Mystery Class.png

Not much is known about the Mystery Class, hence the name. Dragons in this class are cunning and stealthy making them feared above the others. Barf and Belch are a part of this conundrum. While they share one body, each head has it’s own personality. To be effective they must work together.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. (review). This book is in the mystery genre. Something terrible has happened to the Sinclair family, but since the main character doesn’t remember, you follow her pursuit to understanding herself and those around her after a life-changing accident. The end is shocking and sad, but reveals the realities of life and how others can impact your decisions.


Sharp Class.png

“Sharp Class dragons are vain and prideful, and they all possess sharp body parts.” (credit) These dragons are sleek and shine, honor and self-respect. They are beautiful and graceful with their pointed limbs and they know it.

Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. Aphrodite LaFont. Aphrodite is all about appearance. She is beautiful and quite smart. She gets the guys and has grace. She can be rude and crude, as well as misunderstood. Her parents are rich and powerful. It seems like she has it all.


Stoker Class.png

Stoker dragons are small and unruly. They can literally set themselves on fire making them hotheaded. This class is an explosion in a tiny package. Find a book that is small, in physical size or page number, that is full of action, mystery, or willful characters.

Wake by Lisa Mcmann. I read this book a long time ago. I hardly remember it. However, for only around 210 pages, I remember that it was full of interesting ideas and a suspenseful plot.


Strike Class.png

Rare, powerful, inflexible, and loyal. These are some of the descriptor words for a dragon in the Strike Class. More prominent traits of the Strike Class also include blazing speed, cleverness, strength, and navigation. They are very rare, but very mighty. They are like a wild mustang horse: hard to train but loyal in the end.

Paper Princess by Erin Watt. (review). I finished this book in one sitting of about 6-7 hours. This book was hard to contain and the cliffhanger had me guessing. Nevertheless, like the Strike Class dragons, the characters stayed true to themselves in the end. The Royal brothers exhibit some of the same traits of stubbornness and power.


Tidal Class.png

As the title suggests, Tigal dragons are associated with water, specifically the ocean. Those in this class are usually larger than most other classes. Water can be soothing, but not with dragons. For most book lovers, we enjoy a relaxing read near the water (as long as your book doesn’t get wet). For dragons, find a book that matches their habitat in setting.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. This book take place mostly on the beach by the ocean. Filled with merpeople, water, discovery, and princes and princesses, Of Poseidon fits in with the Tidal Class.


Tracker Class.png

“Natural born hunters, Tracker Class dragons have a highly acute sense of smell or taste that enables them to track down and find things.” (credit) Sadly, we humans are not trackers. There are some forms of books that are hard to find, like versions from other countries, special editions, hardcopy VS. paperback, ARCs, and more. Like Stormfly, these books are a torturing “mix of beauty and brutality.”

Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I very much want to read Caraval. After all of the hype, it has become my most anticipated read of 2016. I can certainly wait till it’s release day, but I would LOVE an ARC of the novel.


Unknown Class.png

There is a lack of knowledge about these dragons, so they have not yet been classified. They could be sorted in the future, but until then they are stuck in the shadows of information. Like debut authors and their books, they are new and haven’t had quite as much publicity and appearances in the book world to be fully understood.

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I cheated by choosing two. I want to read both of these 2017 debuts, like right now.



Dragons don’t like smoked eel of lunch. They flinch and cower from the striped delicacy. Like the eel, there are some books that people just won’t touch. It could be because of a passionately harsh fandom or because you don’t want the next book to ruin your experience with the previous. There are many reasons not to read a certain book, and while people will try to persuade you to pick it up, it is your choice to decide what you will read.

*shrugs* I don’t know. I would almost say a book genre, like bibliographies. I could say Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but the truth is that I might read it sometime in the future.
