Zoe: Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful week! Annike and I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award 2 by the wonderful Katie @Read with Katie. Thank you so much for the nomination, sorry it has taken us so long to do, but I urge you all to go check out and follow her amazing blog! (more…)
Zoe: Welcome back everyone! Hope you are having a lovely October and had an even better Halloween. Sorry that we have passed Halloween now but we thought we would get this tag past Halloween to celebrate the end of October. A big shout out to Norees @NoReadsTooGreat who nominated us for this tag. If you don’t follow her I would highly recommend you head over and visit/follow her beautiful blog! Here we go!
1, Carving pumpkins- what book would you carve up and light on fire?
Annike: Haha so this is a little morbid but yeah of course everyone has books that they don’t love. For me this would be a book I read last year called The Opposite of Love by Sarah Lynn Scheerger. It was just so weird and made me kind of uncomfortable a lot of the time so that wasn’t a favourite.
Zoe: Probably Never Said by Carol Lynch Williams. I thought this was just a really weird and non developed book and didn’t connect on any level. Whilst I wouldn’t want to light it on fire I definitely would never read it again.
2. Trick or treat- what character is a treat, what character is a trick?
Treat: Probably Peter Kavinsky from To All The Boys I Have Loved Before (Jenny Han). He is seriously just the sweetest guy.
Trick: Maven from Red Queen Series. If you have read it you will know what I mean!
Treat: Definitely Simon in Simon vs The Homosapiens Agenda. He was such a likeable character who was also fairly amusing.
Trick: Umm not really sure what this exactly means but maybe like all of the characters from Wither by Lauren Destefano because that book ended up being a lot more twisted and crazy than I had anticipated.
3. Candy corn- what book is always sweet?
Zoe: P.S I Like You by Kasie West. Such a cute love story and always found myself smiling when I read it:)
Annike: As the queen of contemporary I am going to have to go with a Kasie West book and say P.S. I like you. It was such an adorable book with a cute cover so definitely a sweet pick. Haha I didn’t even realise I picked the same as Zoe! 🙂
4. Ghosts- what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
Zoe: Ben from Breathing Underwater by Sophie Hardcastle. He was such a sweet guy and a lovely brother and I would have loved to see more of him in the book so why not as a ghost?
Annike: spoiler ahead I assume this means that the character has to be dead so I will go with Finnick from The Hunger Games. He was just such a good and bright soul. Plus the move definitely did him justice and I guess I’d love to have his happy and positive ghost spirit around.
5. Dressing up in costume- what character would you want to be for a day?
Annike: Gosh this one is hard because I feel like there are so many great options. I think i’ll go with Margaret from A Thousand Pieces of You because it would be so awesome to dimension travel for just a day!
Zoe: Ohhhhh good question…I would have to say Addison Coleman from Pivot Point by Kasie West. If you have read the book you would definitely know why. In the story she is known as a ‘Searcher’, as she can look into the future and see both outcomes. I would be her because I would simply love to have this super power for a day!
6. Wizards and witches- what is your favourite Harry Potter moment?
Zoe: Literally anything in the Goblet of Fire. I loved reading the challenges in the Triwizard Tournament so these would be my favourite. Especially the maze.
Annike: Wow, as a massive Harry Potter fan this is so hard! I also really loved all the challenges at the Triwizard Tournament as well as all the scenes with Ginny in them from the book cause she is my favourite character.
7. Blood and gore- what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?
Annike and Zoe: Don’t read a lot of blood and gore books so we don’t even know…sorry:)
Zoe: Seeing as Halloween is over we aren’t going to tag anyone specifically but are instead tagging anyone that wants to do this tag! It’s really fun so feel free to do this as a goodbye to Halloween, tag:) I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the week and we will be back next week!
Annike: Hey guys, I wanted to quickly say that we decided to skip our TBR of this month just because we didn’t think it was particularly necessary – even though we will continue to do it just didn’t feel like it this month. Anyways, today I am here with a review on a book called Gemini by Sonya Mukherjee. You might have seen it in the September Wrap Up post we did quite little while ago and I wanted to tell you guys a little about what I thought of it. (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, so we were tagged in The Candy Book Tag by Bookneeders a very long time ago, so we’re very sorry it has taken us this long to get to it! However, I do want to say a big thank you to Joana for the tag and definitely check out her blog because she is one of our all time favourite book bloggers with such great content! Now, let’s get onto it 🙂 (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, we totally forgot that the end of the month was approaching and now we are officially in October. So sorry that this wrap up is a little bit later than usual but we still wanted to let you guys know what books we read this months and what we thought of them. (more…)
Hello everyone, it’s Zoe here today and I am doing a review on the book I have been promising myself to read for around a year and which I finally finished! It is the first book popular series The Lunar Chronicles, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, so here we go!
Annike: Hey guys! Don’t even ask me how it is already September. Honestly, this year has gone go unbelievable fast so far and it is crazy that it is already September but I’m excited to hopefully have a better reading month than last month. We’ll be on holidays towards the middle of the month too which is great! So let’s get on and show you some of the books we want to read this month. (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, I’m so sorry that Zoe and I haven’t been very active on TwinTales this week or really very much in the last month. We are right in the middle of exams so have been really stressed for time and are mostly just putting up reviews and stuff to keep our content up. But I really do miss talking to all of you guys and reading your posts and everything so I promise after this week we will be back and ready to try out some new things. Today we just wanted to give you a quick sum up on our months – they weren’t too good considering all the work we have been doing but I guess it’s better than nothing 🙂 Lets go! (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, sorry it’s been a little while since we were on here, we’re not really sticking to our usual plan. However, I’m here with a review on Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner, a book I read a little while ago and really really loved. Here we go! (more…)
