Link-Up: HOW I LIKE MY BOOKS

You all know I LOVE books. I adore them, I love them, I treasure them, I read them OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THAT’S THEIR MAIN PURPOSE RIGHT? AMIRITE? So here is mah link-up: (I know I could’ve written something less lame, but I’m feeling tired today.)

I learned how to put da button!

Locations:

  • On my bed. Curled up so the cold won’t come in. It’s really hard.
  • Sittin’ in mah’ chair. Like this too!
  • Sitting upright because that’s the only way you can sit in the school library. (I’ve grown too used to it anyways.)

Genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Contemporary
  • YA fiction (REALLY VAGUE. I KNOW.)
  • Dystopian
  • Mystery/Adventure (I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S CALLED!!)

Snacks:

  • Super-Crunchy Seaweed
  • Potato Chips
  • Pudding
  • Bread, the really soft kind with crunchy sides (I actually eat the first and last slices first…SOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!)

That’s pretty much everything. Byee!

 

Bookish Name Meanings (Link-ups)

ANOTHER LINK UP! I am so excited I’m just gonna get to the point after the next sentence. “I hope you know about my addiction to “The Mysterious Benedict Society”!!!!!!!! (Yes, it requires so many ! s!)”

The Book Chewers: Weekly Linkup: Bookish Name Meanings

The Meaning of “Reynard”:

Reynard means someone smart and cunning, like a fox. It fits Reynie PERFECTLY because that’s just what I’d call him if I were Mr. Curtain!

The Meaning of “Kate”:

Kate means “Pure”. That would be true if it meant “pure athlete”. Not such a fit in meaning, but it’s da perfectest one if you read it on paper. I don’t know why.

The Meaning of “George”:

George means “earth-worker”. Not entirely true if you talk about the everything in Sticky’s personality, but REALLY, ABSURDLY true if you talk about the scene where Sticky used his Google-search-like knowledge to get some kind of plant, which name I can not remember, to give everyone a stomach virus, which reason I will not tell you. (GO READ DA BOOK!)

The Meaning of “Constance”:

Constance means “steadfast”. THAT FITS SOOOOOOOOOOOO WELL! Seriously, Constance constantly annoys people!

The Meaning of “Ledroptha Curtain”:

Ledroptha Curtain is a pun, Ledroptha Curtain, Let Drop The Curtain…. get it? I’ll say I do, but I don’t.

The Meaning of “Martina”:

Martina means “warlike”. Well she’s always ready to fight, and really, really, really, really, really mean, challenging our MBS, so I’d say it fitz!

The Meaning of “Jackson”:

Jack’s son. Jackson’s father was named Jack I think. Hmmmm….. NO FITS.

The Meaning of “Jillson”:

No meaning found. Well, I DON’T KNOW!

SPOILER ALERT!

The Meaning of “Nicholas” (Mr. Benedict’s name):

Nicholas means “Victory of the people”. Eeeer…..Maybe in the end of the first book it fits (But it isn’t revealed in the first book..so.)

I said I would if someone emailed me.

Guess what? I finally got my pics from my Book Talk project. To those of you who don’t know what a Book Talk is, it’s all about choosing a book to promote, using a Book Box (Shoe box decorated), a few items in your Book Box, and a speech to give to your classmates about the overall awesomeness of the book you are promoting.

My Box:

Inside:

Items:

  • Kate’s Bucket

  • “LOSE the new code? Turn OVER for new code!”; SQ’s smartest moment:

 

It says “LOSE the new code? turn OVER for new code!”

 

 

 

It says “Attention all Executives: you canNOT leave notes like this. S.Q., this had better be gone by tonight. Stop trying to be clever. -Jackson” (Quoted from the book.)

 

  • Morse Code.

  • Blue Bookmarks for Mr. Curtain:

 

TeeHee. That’s all!

 

Sorry it got late, Katie, I had to deal with taking a LOT of pictures I don’t need OFF my Media Library and had a BAD time doing that. I love The Mysterious Benedict Society too! Long distance high-five ya’ll.

Book Peeves, my very own.

Another linkup! I love doing The Book Chewers Linkups! YAY! I’ll get to the point this time because I don’t have much time.

Tori’s Book Peeves:

  1. When people say the movie is better than the book.
  2. When people has only watched the movie but still criticizes the book, because they simply hate books.
  3. When people say they hate that one particular book you love and has reread it a million times and the feeling hurts your guts.
  4. When people don’t understand whats the deal about the book you’re reading.
  5. When librarians get mad at me for no reason (OK, maybe for checking out 35 books, but still.)
  6. When everyone says I need to “get a life”. (I living a million lives! CAN’T YOU SEE THAT?)
  7. When people think about the movie and not the book when I say the book name.
  8. When I’m trying to collect a set of the same-styled book covers of a series, but I can’t find that particular cover for number 7.
  9. When I finally get down to the library, knowing what I want, but it’s already taken.
  10. When I can’t eat a chocolate frog or get a chocolate frog card.
  11. Wanting to buy a book, but then remembering how much book-shelf space you have left.
  12. I can’t remember THAT one character’s name.
  13. The boring twist that happens all the time.
  14. Stupid love triangles
  15. Ultra stupid main characters I can’t care less about.
  16. People ask what you are reading, but you drown them in three million different titles.
  17. Stickers on books! NOOOOOOO!!

 

My Little (Don’t get fooled, it’s really big and gigantic and enormous and ginormous…) Impossible List

Hi! I’m back! For 5 days! I’m doing this link-up from The Book Chewers today! I know I’m supposed to show you guys pictures of places some of you’ve been before, and seen before, and taken pictures before, and seen so many times it gets really boring, but I’m still posting them……..LATER! I’m just procrastinating from choosing the photos for a bit, since I have about 180 of them, and most I don’t need…. I have lots of work to do. (And I hate work.)

 

Here’s the button:

Grab the real one on the website!

Anyways, here’s my list:

1. Become a cat and join the Clans.

2. Send someone an Earwax flavored bean.

3. Find a garden like Mary Lenox’s.

4. Become Nicholas Benedict’s assistant.

5. Help the Mysterious Benedict Society hold Mr. Curtain back.

6. Morph into something awesome.

7. Eat Blue M&Ms.

8. Fly on a broom.

9. Collect the Chocolate Frog cards.

10. Win an argument with Constance Contraire.

 

That’s all! Or the most important parts of the list that I can think of… it’s just, shortened.

Letters to Narnia

Hey peeps! Putting away my awesome Tuesday play date post for a bit first, I’m gonna write a letter to Lucy from Narnia! It’s kind of like a challenge from The Book Chewers, so this is what I’ll be doing, just so you guys know. Below is a picture of the picture of the button they made, it looks epic! I’ll try to find a way to add this button to my blog, but don’t scream at me via blog posts if I fail!

 

Go to their website for the actual button!

Anyways, here’s my letter:

Dear Lucy,

I have always wanted to write this letter but had no motivation (Insert chuckle). I am an “Anonymous” blogger nicknamed Tori because I don’t really want my real name out. Anyways, you have always been one of the most curious characters I’ve ever read about, seriously, dead-seriously. I don’t have much time to fool around on the World Wide Webs, so I’ll just get to my questions. The question I have for you today is; Why did you walk so far back into the wardrobe? I mean, really, you could have just stayed just at the entrance! OK, anyways, I’d also like to ask if you like books, I hope you do. I’ll never talk to you via letter OR thought if you say no, I don’t think you’d like to talk to the most sarcastic, stuck-up freak anyways… byeee!

xoxo! 

Tori 

I hate my letter’s ending. I HATE IT, I HATE IT, I HATE IT! Oops! Overreaction, but I am a sarcastic, stuck-up freak *insert proud smile*!
