Our tag questions were just too fun to miss, honestly. Time for us to have a go! (And if you haven’t linked up, it’s not too late! You get extra points in the giveaways, so tick-tock, don’t be late.)
1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?
MIME: Well, Splintered is the first one that comes to mind. I just saw that cover and went, “Woah! I need to read this!”
CAIT: Obviously Splintered. I mean, come on. Look at that gorgeousness. But I really swooned over These Broken Stars. Also: This Shattered World. Can we just start screaming RIGHT ABOUT NOW?
2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you’ve ever read.
MIME: Joanna Mason (from Catching Fire.) Yeah, she was loopy. Also Celeana Sardothien (Throne of Glass). That’s a whole different brand of firecracker. Including the “you don’t want her to go off in your face” part.
CAIT: I think every single character in the Shatter Me series is psycho. And in How to Lead a Life of Crime? It could be titled: How To Raise A Sociopath. Seriously. Also Half Bad. Okay…we’re just going to admit that I read a lot of books about pyschos.
MIME: You are what you read.
3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?
MIME: Okay, honestly Madeleine Takes Command. I read it last year and I actually hoped the Indian antagonists would scalp —
CAIT: WOAH. CALM DOWN.
MIME: I AM CALM.
CAIT: Okay, well, I really really really hated 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Think of the crankiest face you can and multiple it by six. That was my face.
MIME: That’s always your face.
CAIT: HOW DARE —
4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you’ve been “late” to pick them up?
CAIT: This is a little bit embarrassing…I’ve only read one Percy Jackson book. I also only started reading the Harry Potter series when I was 19-years-old. Not, you know, 9-years-old. But Mime, I mean, this is a pretty shocking question for you to answer, isn’t it? You’ve barely read anything popular.
CAIT: Just saying it like it is.
MIME: Well I still haven’t read Harry Potter, Twilight, City of Mortal Instruments or whatever that is, Matched, Uglies, um… but I HAVE read more Percy Jacksons than Cait.
CAIT: Aw, that’s adorable. Small victories for Mime. Woot.
5. Caterpillar: What’s the most confusing book you’ve read?
CAIT: Um, The Bone Season. What the heck was happening there?! Like: WHAT.
MIME: I don’t want to use Splintered as my default answer, but woof, that book was confusing the first time. It’s like someone did something and he died but didn’t but he has no memories, but what’s a jub-jub bird again? I’ve reread it now, and I finally get it.
CAIT: Don’t beat yourself up. Not all of us can understand the awesomeness that is Splintered.
6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep?
CAIT: Enmity. Look, I don’t want to be mean…but —
MIME: Are you kidding? You love being mean.
CAIT: Quite frankly Enmity was like Every Dystopian Ever. Plus it was confusing. Plus it had a generic cover. Plus the title. I CAN’T GET THE “N” AND THE “M” AROUND THE RIGHT WAY, OKAY? Okay.
MIME: And that is why Cait is a demi-god. One of those abandoned ones. Because they’re too crazy and too dyslexic and probably prone to be psycho, as mentioned above. Like Luke!
7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?
CAIT: The Lunar Chronicles! I can’t even stop laughing about that!
“Prince Kai! Check my fan, I think I’m overheating.”
CAIT: Oh and Splintered and Gone and A Series of Unfortunate Events and Rangers Apprentice and Gallagher Girls and —
MIME: Careful, Cait. Your fangirl is showing.
CAIT: I can’t help that I’m passionate, okay?!
8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?
MIME: Oh this is an incriminating question.
MIME: How am I supposed to answer that? Like someone I want to be friends with? Or someone I want Mo to read out so I can marry them?
CAIT: You seem flustered.
MIME: I am not, you jerk.
CAIT: Well, we all know you have a secret crush on Four. I, however, am saving myself for Peter Pan.
MIME: Actually, I really disliked Four until the end of Allegiant.
9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you’ve read this year?
MIME: Is Morpheus a villain?
CAIT: Is Warner a villain?
MIME: Are we confusing villains and love interests here?
10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What’s the latest book/series/author that’s completely swallowed your interest?
CAIT: THRONE OF GLASS. Ohhhh, my sweet chocolate cake, I love that series so, so, so much. I am unbelievably excited for Heir of Fire.
CAIT: That basically sums up both the title and our feelings towards this book.
Cait and Mime decided to blog because a) they moved away from all their old friends and b) they went on a trip to China and therefore needed to
bragtell people about it. Their archives are full of photos of China, actually. Did you know tomato is an acceptable “fruit” to put on a birthday cake? When in China, do as the Chinese.
