So, if you’ve been around this blog for a while, you know I kinda like tags. And the Kaleidoscope tag will be the second I’ve created myself. This is a tag geared towards books and movies. Who can resist? So grab your favorite reading snack and pull up a chair.
- Link back to the blog which started the tag and also share the graphic above in your post.
- Link back to the person who tagged you.
- Tag up to five people (or more, if you want).
1. Name the first book that comes to mind. 🙂
For me, that is A Little Princess, even though I’ve never read the book.
2. What is the first book that comes to mind when you hear the word, “Christmas”?
Actually, a movie comes to mind for me, but since that wasn’t the question I asked, I’ll say A Christmas Carol.
3. What is the last book you gave (or would have given) a five-star review?
I had to go to Goodreads to remember this. 😉 But it was Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. If you read only one book this year, let it be that one. (I read the young adult version, so naturally, that’s the one I’m recommending.)
4. Which book (that you can think of right now) made you feel like you were there with the characters?
To the biggest extreme, also. I’d have to say Unbroken. Maybe it was the story itself, but there were many times that I was RIGHT. THERE. Which made it difficult to get through at times.
5. Think of a favorite author – what is your favorite of their books?
I have several favorite authors. But I’ll pick Nadine Brandes and I’ll say . . . five minutes later . . . Fawkes. Or maybe A Time to Rise . . .
6. What’s your opinion on love triangles?
I really don’t mind them when they’re done well.
7. What’s your opinion on cliches?
Cliches, on the other hand . . . yeah, no. You don’t want me to get started on cliches. Granted, you probably can’t write without at least a few small cliches, but to deliberately build a story off of a cliche and then keep the WHOLE THING embedded in that cliche . . .
1. Your all time favorite movie?
That would probably be Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story. It’s the only movie of the series not based strictly on one of the books, and it’s my favorite. The story was AMAZING.
2. Narnia or Lord of the Rings? (Movies, not books.)
Both. 🙂 Okay, Lord of the Rings.
3. Your favorite classic movie?
A Christmas Carol, the George C Scott version. We watch it every year!
4. Your favorite based-on-the-book-by movie?
Since I can’t say A Christmas Carol again, I’ll say A Little Princess. Just saw it recently for the first time in YEARS. I loved it. (The 1995 version.)
5. Your favorite movie you saw in the theater?
Unbroken: Path to Redemption. Or possible The Man Who Invented Christmas . . . (historical, again). Or possibly both.
6. How many movies have made you cry?
Officially . . . none. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t quite a few that could have.
7. What’s the first movie to come to find when you want a movie to make you laugh?
Moms’ Night Out. Enough said.
And that’s it! There you have it. Now to tag people . . .
And Jane Maree
Have fun, guys! And spread the word. Also, if you weren’t tagged, consider yourself tagged. 🙂
