Most Likely To… Book Tag

The Character Most Likely too... (1)Hello every one!

I wasn’t actually personally tagged, Louise@GenieReads was and basically tagged every one and I decided to accept the challenge, because I liked it a lot! You can click here to read her post. Thank you Louise for participating and spreading the fun! 🙂 Also, you should check her blog for more, because it is wonderful!


Rules / Instructions

  1. Put 18 book characters into a jar and shake it up.
  2. Have the first three most likely to… categories ready. Pick three names from the jar and apply them to the first three categories.
  3. Keep going until you have none left!

ROUND 1

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Have kids first
  2. Cry at a movie
  3. Get arrested

The Characters: Lauren Holbrook from Hidden Fires, Ira Levinson from The Longest Ride and Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief

Lauren will definitely have kids first, because 1. she is a young married women and ahm.. I’m not going to spoil the book 2. she lives in the 19th century, which is long before the other two were born.
Ira is going to cry at a movie, because men cry at movies too, especially if they watch Fast & Furious (7).
Liesel will definitely get arrested, because she lived in Nazi Germany and she was stealing books.


ROUND 2

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Become a crazy cat lady/man
  2. Become a multi-millionaire
  3. Start knitting as a hobby

The Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit and Grenouille from Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Sherlock will become a crazy cat man, because he’s a high-functioning sociopath and he’ll need company after Watson leaves him.
Grenouille will become a multi-millionaire with the help of his perfumery skills.
Bilbo will start knitting as a hobby, because he’s old, bored and most probably Gandalf won’t take him on a trip again.


ROUND 3

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Be a closet nerd
  2. Become an actor/actress
  3. Fall down the stairs

The Characters: Scout Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird, Lucy Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia and Ram Mohammad Thomas from Slumdog Millionaire

Hard choice…. I would say the nerd would be Scout; we only knew her when she was small, so maybe she will become one when she grows up.
Lucy would become an actress with the help of her experiences gained in Narnia.
Ram will fall down the stairs, because he might be clumsy (?) or drunk (?)


ROUND 4

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Collect that many books they have a personal library
  2. Win the Hunger Games
  3. Be tumblr famous

The Characters: Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries, Christopher Boone from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Robert Langdon from Angels & Demons.

Christopher will probably collect a lot of books, because of having Asperger syndrome. He’s also very smart and introvert.
Damon would totally win the Hunger Games, because he’s a vampire.
Robert would be tumblr famous with his symbolistic knowledge; I’d definitely follow him.


ROUND 5

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Go through a goth phase
  2. Have a one night stand
  3. Go to comic con

The Characters: Edward Cullen from Twilight, Romeo Montague from Romeo and Juliet, Hanna Schmitz from The Reader.

(Sorry Twilight fans) Edward will be going through a goth phase (or he did already).
Hanna would be having a one night stand, because she doesn’t really get attached to people.
Romeo would go to comic con, but I can’t decide which comic would be his reason.


ROUND 6

Who’s most likely to…

  1. Get married
  2. Have a cool mug collection
  3. Be a night owl (stays awake most of the night)

The Characters: Augustus Water from The Fault in our Stars, Voldemort from Harry Potter and Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

THIS is a hard choice… for Augustus there would an obvious easy choice, but then I’m left with two men that don’t fit the other 2 scenarios. I’ll say he would get married first, since he’s the one with the highest chances of ever finding somebody. Wonka would own a cool mug collections and probably invent some really crazy ones. Voldemort would be a night owl, because he’s not actually a man and doesn’t need sleep at all.



This was really fun, although my luck failed me and didn’t get to make some really funny questions. Putting that aside I’d like to nominate the following people:

Mikaela @itsmemikaelaKelly @mynameisnotkatieSheri @readinaflashGretchen @chicnerdreads, Shannon @ClockworkBibliophileMia, Lynette and Vibha @geekyfangirls, Diana @nighttrainbooks and YOU!

Ten Books Every “Wow Seeker” Should Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. “This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!”

I was really happy that The Broke and the Bookish gave us the freedom to choose what category of people we want to recomand books to. By “Wow Seeker” I mean people that look for books which you start reading and don’t want to put down or books that after reading them, you are left breathless. This, in fact, is a list of my favourite books and some belong to series, from which I only presented the first book, but I totally recomand the whole series. (Note: there are so many other book I wished to add, knowing of their greatness, but… ahm… I haven’t read them yet). Since I am not the best presenter/ describer,  I recomand you to click on each of the books names and read the blurbs.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak51a99tea6il-_sx317_bo1204203200_

There are no words to fully explain how much I loved/love/will always love this book. The whole idea of Death being the narrator is just fantastic. In my opinion, this is by far one of the best fiction books that takes place during WWII and I totally recomand it to… well… EVERYONE! (Personal Rating  5+ Stars)

The Host by Stephenie Meyer1656001

So… before you say “wait a minute, that’s the chick who wrote the ‘Twilight’ series” (for those out there, like me, who didn’t find any greatness in that series; no ofense to anyone that likes/loves the books) I’m here to tell you that this book has NOTHING, good or bad, in common to Edward Cullen’s vampire world. It is not like any other book that has something to do with aliens taking over the planet, it has a beautiful love story and an interesting plot all-in-all. If you like futuristic/ dystopian-like books this is definitely something you should read. (Personal Rating  5+ Stars)

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind343

One of the reasons why I liked this book so much is the wonderful illustration of the young murderer Baptiste Grenouille, which was gifted with an absolute sense of smell (another great plot idea). His journey in becoming a skilled parfumier, his depraved mind and the way he sees (smells) the world are utterly fascinating and I recomand this book, not just to mystery/crime fans, but… well…to everyone, since it is an excelent psychological story. (Personal Rating  5+ Stars)

The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks17407748

I wrote in previous posts that I am HUGE fan of Nicholas Sparks and I will never pass a chance of expressing how fond I am of his books. Among the 10 books I already read, this one is my favourite. It tells the story of 2 by-time separated love stories, which are beautifully connected in a very unexpected way. You might think I promise a lot and maybe you’re right, but that is how I see the book. It made me cry so much and even though I anticipated the end, it still left me breathless. I recommend to start with this book, in case you haven’t read any of Sparks’ novels, because it is a happy love story (mostly… but it has a happy ending). (Personal Rating  5+ Stars)

Peony in Love by Lisa See

244721

I read this book like eons ago (not really… maybe 6-7 years ago actually) and I instantly got fascinated with its story. This book is as fantastic as it is unexpected. It addresses themes like love, friendship, the role of women in society and the afterlife. It is based on actual historical events and that makes it even better. If I didn’t get you interested in this book by now, I don’t know what else to say to convince you. (Personal Rating  5 Stars)

The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman7116709

“Listen. The Sanctuary of the Redeemers on Shotover Scarp is named after a damned lie for there is no redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary.” This time I really have no words to describe this book, but I can tell you that even my father took time to read it (when we were on holiday) and something like that never happend again (he’s more of a conspiracy theories fan lately and has even less free-time for reading now). Last summer I found there is a sequel to it (apparently even a third book exists – sometimes I believe I live under a rock). You should definitely check the series out! (Personal Rating  5 Stars)

Angel Time by Anne Rice6282915

This is the first book in “The Songs of the Seraphim” series and is written by the same autor that wrote “The Vampire Chronicles”. Although it has nothing to do with vampires, its time-travel plot is truly gripping. It is a story about angels and assassins, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love. (Personal Rating  5 Stars)

The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls by Elise Primavera290992

You are never too old to read a great book (it is recommended for ages 8-12, but so is Harry Potter a “children’s” book). It is true that I read the book around the age of 12-13, but all I remember are happy thoughts. It might seem “childish” for me now, but I would still love the story. So if you, like myself, have the soul of a child trapped inside an adult’s body, you should read this book. 🙂 Well, not just because of that. It is a beautiful story about friendship and trust, full of fun and adventure. (Personal Rating  4.5 Stars)

The Recruit by Robert Muchamore2158604

The first book (12 in total) in the series “Cherub”. “CHERUB spies, 17 and under, hack into computers, bug houses, download crucial documents, and Do Not Exist. James, recently orphaned, is their newest recruit, and brilliant in math. After 100 days gruelling training, his mission begins.” I only recently found out there are more books than the only 2 I have and right now 5 of them are on the way. I loved the first 2 books and the whole idea of children spies. (Personal Rating  5 Stars)

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis100915

“They opened a door and entered a world–Narnia–the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy.” Narnia, what a wonderful world! Wait… wasn’t that enough to understand why this book (series) is a masterpiece of our time (ahm… I know 1950–1956 isn’t quite our time, but I don’t care 😂). From the 7 books, only 3 were turned into movies (it is said that a forth movie should be released) and they are almost as awesome as the books, so if by any chance you have seen the movies, you should definitely read the books! (Personal Rating  5+ Stars)

If you actually managed to get to this point I am grateful for that, I hope you like my picks and maybe even found some books to add to your To-Read list. I wish you wonderful week. (click here if you wish to participate in this week’s “Top Ten Tuesday”)
