We Love Superheroes Tag

Hamlette from Hameltte's Soliloquy is having a We Love Superheroes Week over on her blog so you NEED to go check it out if you love superheroes in any way shape or form... she's including everything from Marvel to DC to Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog to The Incredibles so you know it's going to be awesome! To kick off the week she's having a tag, which of course I'm going to fill out as you know me and my affinity for tags.
And to really get myself in the mood I think I'll listen to a little music from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. :)

1. Who are your favorite superheroes? (Go ahead and list up to five if you want!)

  • Captain America... An exemplary guy. How can you not like him?
  • Black Widow... I love that she doesn't have any real superhero powers per say but still has got the moves! 
  • Batman... I've never seen a single Batman movie except oddly enough the Lego Batman movie but it's been an inside joke that "I'm Batman" for so long I'm struggling to remember how it started... I even have Batman pajamas. 
  • Superman... not really.... but everyone assumes he is cause my name is Lois and Lois Lane and all. I've never watched a single Superman movie either. 

2. What's your favorite superhero movie?

Wow.... how to choose? I love The Incredibles, all of the Captain America movies, both Guardians of the Galaxy and the first Avengers movie. Those are probably my favorites.

3. Do you have a favorite superhero couple?

Captain America and Peggy Carter. I love that she was interested in him before he got all interesting if you know what I mean. Also of course Mr. Incredible and Elastagirl. <3

4. What was your introduction to the world of superheroes?

The first superhero movies I can remember watching were the Toby Maguire Spiderman movies. After that it would have been The Incredibles. Then in 2012 we watched The Avengers and we've been going steady since then.

5. If you could be any superhero for a day, who would you like to be?

Black Widow I think. 

6. Do you have a favorite supervillain?

Loki perhaps? I'm not one of those fangirls but it is easier to like him then most super villains.

7. Can you think of a superhero who should get their own solo film, but hasn't yet?

Black Widow!!!

8. Do you read comic books?

*Hangs head in shame* No. My dad was always a fan but I didn't pick that up.

9. Why do you like superheroes?

Honestly it's nothing deep. They're fun, action packed and inspiring (not in a super deep way but still).

10. Have you ever cosplayed as a superhero? Feel free to share pics if you want!

No... unless you count my batman pajamas. ;)

Couples for Couples Tag

Cordy over at Any Merry Little Thought is having a Lovely Blog Party, which includes this splendid tag! You all know how I love tags so I'm filling it out! I might be stealing a couple answers from other bloggers who filled this tag out but they were too good and I can't help but agree!

Rules:
Using the prompts below, answer the following questions as creatively as you please
None of the questions require you to answer with a favorite in the category, only to find a fitting answer. They can be old, they can be new, they can be borrowed or they can be blue... they can be known or they can be unknown. You can explain your answer once you've given one.
If you don't have a blog, answer the tag in the comment section and for those of you who have blogs, leave a link to your answers in the comment section 

Ivanhoe and Rebecca: Name a couple that should have been together

Joe Bradley and Princess Ann from Roman Holiday. Mia and Sebastian from La La Land. 

Jo and Laurie: Name a couple that should have stayed friends...or did stay friends...

I absolutely agree with Jo and Laurie. Besides that.... hmmm.... can't think of any others off the top of my head.

Jane and Mr. Rochester: Name a couple that looked like the chances of a happily ever after were next to none!

Sister Bernadette/Shelagh and Dr. Turner from Call the Midwife. I remember in the first couple seasons seeing the growing affection for each other and thinking it was hopeless but so sweet and I couldn't' believe when it all turned out! I love them so much!!!! 

Jane and Mr. Bingley: Name a couple that is just sooo happy!

Brian and I.... ;) Besides us you say? Hmmm.... No... no one is as happy us us. Other couples simply smile... we laugh! If you don't get that reference then we can't be friends. 
But since I mention that quote then how can I not mention the couple that it's about?!?! Mr. Darcy and Lizzy Bennett!!!! See the whole question was wrong since it points out in the book that they are happier as Jane only smiles and Lizzy laughs! But now I've given away the reference. Oh well. 
Just look at this picture! Joy radiates from their faces! 

Kit and Ella: Name your favorite fairytale couple

Belle and the Beast. Eugene/Flynn and Rapunzel.

Molly Gibson and Roger Hamley: Name a couple where the woman is basically ignored by the suitor until the end of the story (frustration at it's finest!! :P :P)

I would definitely say Molly and Roger! Also Fanny and Edmund in Mansfield Park.

Sarah and Jacob Witting: Name a couple that found love later in life

I had to look up who that couple was cause I have a bad memory apparently... anyways for others with other bad memories their from Sarah, Plain and Tall. Anyways.... I feel like in all the series where couples find love later in life one always ends up dying before they can get married!!! I hate that! Okay after some thinking and searching I remembered Miss Lavender and Stephen Irving from Anne of Avonlea, who are perfectly adorable!

Don Lockwood and Kathy Seldon: Name a couple from a musical

Oh I do love musicals! Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is my favorite musical and I do really like Adam and Millie from it so I'll go with them.

Anne and Gilbert: Name a couple that didn't start out on the right foot

I love Anne and Gilbert!!! Besides them so I'll have to go with Han Solo and Princess Leia. I also like Peter and Ellie from It Happened One Night.

Faramir and Eowyn: Name a couple with the sweetest love story

I do love Faramir and Eowyn but I'd have to go with Henry Tilney and Catherine Morland from Northangner Abbey... they're so cute! 
<3
Well that's all folks!

Yet Another Period Drama Tag

I've seen this tag floating around for a week or so now and it looks like fun so I'm going to steal it. With a little searching I found it began over at Musing of a Jane Austen Wannabe and you an see the original post HERE. I've never read this blog before but looking over it I think I've found another kindred blogging spirit.

1. What was the most recent period drama you watched? Share what you thought of it.

I'm watching The Crown right now... halfway through season 2. I like it but parts of it give me complicated emotions. 

2. Do you generally prefer period dramas in the form of a movie or a TV series/mini-series? Why?

It depends but normally I think I lean TV series/mini series. But if a movie is well done it can be just as enjoyable but there just tends to be more period drama mini series and TV series that are well done. I think the genre just lends itself better to the longer format. 

3. What is your favorite musical period drama?

My favorite musical is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which I guess is technically a period drama so there's my answer! 

4. Read the book first or watch the movie first?

I try to always read the book first and I was definitely pickier about that when I was younger and probably kind of snobby about it. I'm a little laxer now though. 

5. What is a valuable life lesson you learned from a period drama?

Most of the life lessons from period dramas are pretty lovey dovey and unrealistic so probably not the greatest. I think though in Austen's works you get much more solid lessons like that of the danger of first impressions. 

6. Which period drama hero would you be likely to fall in love with in real life?

Probably Mr. Tilney. He's so charismatic yet wise! He'd make me laugh but also keep my head on straight. 

7. Do you ever like to binge-watch a period drama series?

Umm duh! Who doesn't? I remember spending a Sunday afternoon binge watching Pride and Prejudice (1995) one and it was AMAZING!!! 

8. What things go best with watching a period drama?

I think someone to watch it with. I grew up watching period dramas with my whole family but now I mostly watch them with my mom and sisters. And I'm now slowly but surely introducing my husband to them. Besides that though popcorn and some tea are also perfect ingredients. 

9. Which period drama do you think you would fit into best?

Hmm... so many to chose from! Maybe Call the Midwife because I'm a nurse and it's always been my dream (though I don't do so currently) to be an OB nurse or a midwife. 

10. If you could have any period drama character for a best friend, who would it be? And why?

Anne Shirley I think.... but I'm afraid she might drive me crazy at some point... or perhaps I will drive her crazy with my lack of imagination? Oh dear! 

11. Show us a picture of a period drama costume you wish you could wear in real life.

I love pretty much all of Elizabeth Bennet's and Molly Gibson's wardrobes! 


12. Are there any period dramas you like to watch during a particular season or holiday?

We tend to watch On Moonlight Bay and By the Light of the Silvery Moon around Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

13. Which period drama has your favorite soundtrack?

I love period dramas soundtracks so it's hard to narrow down but when it come down to it, it has to be Pride and Prejudice (1995)! I mean... Brian and I walked down the aisle to it!

14. Dream cast your favorite actor and actress in a period drama of your choosing; tell which parts they would play and why. 

Mansfield Park because there has never been a great version of it! 
Claire Foy would play Fanny Price. 
Dan Stevens I think would play Edmund Bertram. 
That's all of the casting I've thought up so far but I'm really really hooked on the idea of Claire Foy playing Fanny. She'd be so perfect! And I just realized that one of the other ladies that filled out this tag suggests the same cast! But I didn't realize that until just now! Not trying to be a copycat! Great minds just think alike! ;)

15. Are there any period dramas you like more than one version of?

I like both the 1995 version and 2008 version of Sense and Sensibility.

16. What are the top three period dramas that you haven't seen on your to-watch list?

Good question! Off the top of my head...

  1. Belle
  2. The Greatest Showman
  3. Return to Cranford 

17. Show a picture of your favorite period drama hairstyle.


18. What was your favorite wedding in a period drama? 


Just kidding!
I love all the weddings! I love going to weddings, watching them in movies just give me more weddings!!!! I think my favorite has got to be the wedding in Pride and Prejudice 1995. Look how happy they are!!!!!

19. What is your favorite biographical period drama?

I'm trying to think of which period dramas I've watched were biographical! As far as movies it's been a long time but I remember enjoying Miss Potter and Amazing Grace. TV shows though I love The Crown and Call the Midwife... though of course Call the Midwife isn't biographical really anymore. 

20. Which historical novel will you forever recommend to anyone and everyone?

Coronation of Glory by Deborah Meroff! I love Lady Jane Grey and this is a beautiful book about her. You can't read it and not help but love her too. 

If you love period dramas feel free to grab this tag!

It's Monday! How to Brew a Baby

I know I haven't been posting very much recently and I'm ashamed to say it isn't because I'm too busy reading to blog. I'm just busy in general but I could be posting if I really wanted to. I have been reading though! Recently however most of my reading has involved something to do with childbirth as I get ready for our little hobbit to make her appearance. Brian and I have been doing the Bradley method childbirth classes together, which have been great but have also been keeping us pretty busy. I am loving learning more about childbirth and the little miracle growing in my womb.
I've been trying to stay healthy as best as I can but for some reason I'm always craving unhealthy things like tacos and donuts! I blame the baby!
Anyways, here's what's been up in my reading world right now.

Finished Recently

  • The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White
  • Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs (audiobook)

Currently Reading

  • The Mill on the Floss by George Elliot (audiobook)

Book Review- Tarzan of the Apes

For the Classics Club I read Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan of the Apes. I listened to this one on audiobook and I really enjoyed the narration by Simon Prebble.
Synopsis- When a ship's mutiny forces a young noble English couple out onto the remote African coast, their child is born into the wild. Their deaths a short time later leave the boy alone in the jungle wilderness- until a she-ape adopts him and raises whims her own. Reluctantly accepted into the tribe by its fierce leader, Kerchak, the baby Tarzan must prove himself by learning the ways of survival in the jungle: how to talk with animals, swing through the trees and fight the great predators. In time, his strength, courage and human intelligence earn him a play as Lord of the Jungle. But the civilized men enter the jungle, Tarzan is forced to choose between two worlds. A classic tale that is both a reflection on civilization from an outside point of view and an exploration of the primal force within us all. 
I'm beginning to realize with my second of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels that he definitely has a formula to them. However.... one can't help but enjoy his books! Adventure! Romance! Just some light fun reading. There are definitely some stereotypes to this book and it's the product of it's times so there's a couple things one needs to take with a grain of salt.
Tarzan is an intriguing and compelling lead character. He's definitely a character trying to find himself and you root for him throughout the book. The internal struggle he faces between his human side and his primal side is interesting. Jane is great too but I liked Dejah Thoris in A Princess of Mars better. Jane is a little bit of a helpless female sometimes but I think you don't notice quite as much because her maid Esmeralda is way more so! I had mixed feelings about Clayton. I liked him and he's definitely a gentleman so I feel bad for him that Jane ends up preferring Tarzan. I also like the French naval officer D'Arnot. He's a great gentleman and I love how he looks after Tarzan after Tarzan looks after him. Overall I enjoyed the plot though it can get pretty sappy at times after Jane enters the story.
Really my main complaint about this book is the ending. No spoilers but if you've read it you know what I mean! Basically I'm going to have to read the next book to get the rest of the story! Why would Edgar Rice Burroughs end the book like that? It's cruel!!!
On a side note.... this is nothing like the Disney film at all... I've only seen it once a long time ago but as far as I recall... pretty much nothing like it!
So anyways, a fun read and I recommend!

New Year's Thoughts

I've had a busy beginning to my year so I'm just now putting down a few New Year's thoughts.

First off... I had a marvelous first Christmas being married to Brian. We celebrated on Christmas Eve with his side of the family then Christmas morning we were able to spend together before headed out to my side of the family in the evening to celebrate with them. Being able to spend the morning together was really special. We made breakfast together and then opened presents and stockings. Then we enjoyed a movie together. I'm sure next Christmas will look different with a baby but I'm excited for the change, though of course a little terrified.

Which brings me to the new year. We only have three months before we'll be welcoming our little girl  into our lives. It's feeling more and more real every day as I feel her moving inside me. Our nursery is pretty much set up and ready to go. Most of my thoughts are on what's to come with her as I think of freezer meals, packing bags for the hospital and all of that jazz. It's hard to focus on much else and when I do I get behind on everything I need to do to prepare! It's craziness!

I'm still finding time to read here and there, which is essential as I press towards my goal to complete my Classics Club challenge this year. I have 38 books left on my list... three of which I'm currently reading. I'll probably skip a couple on there though to be honest.... I made a list of 103 with the idea that I would only read 100. I just make my own rules up like that. I know it's going to be hard to find time to read with a baby but I'm going to try to make it happen and if it doesn't I'll have to accept that.    I also want to be able to get other books in my reading schedule besides the classics of course or else I'm sure I'll get burned out quickly. Probably a little non-fiction and some fun lighter fiction will be mixed in there too. My Goodreads goal I put for this year was 50 books. I think that's doable. I hope!

Overall I'm thrilled for the new year and the changes it's going to bring. I'm just praying I can meet them with patience and grace. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?

2017 End of Year Book Survey

Once again this year I'm joining in with The Perpetual Page Turner to do her End of Year Book Survey.

2017 Reading Stats

Number Of Books You Read: 36
Number of Re-Reads: 5
Genre You Read The Most From: Classics

Best in Books

1. Best Book You Read In 2017? 
  • Fiction- Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly and Dear Mr. Knightly by Katherine Reay
  • Non-Fiction- Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas
2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t? I wasn't really disappointed by any books this year!

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read? Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay. I was shocked how much I loved it!
 
4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)? Well I got my book club to read Hidden Figures and Dear Mr. Knightley. And they loved them. I hadn't read them either at that point though to be fair.

5. Best series you started in 2017? Best Sequel of 2017? Best Series Ender of 2017?

  • Best series started- The Barsoom series- The Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  • Best sequel- The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket and The Bourne Supremacy by Robert Ludlum... honestly the only sequels I read this year and they're both equally great. 
  • Best series ender- None this year. I meant to but it didn't happen. 

6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2017? Katherine Reay! I've loved every book I've read of hers so far and can't wait to read more.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone? I'd say A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry.... I don't normally read plays and I normally don't enjoy them but I really enjoyed this one!

8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year? Unputdownable was definitely Dear Mr. Knightley but it wasn't action-packed or thrilling. As far as action-packed definitely A Princess of Mars.

9. Book You Read In 2017 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year? I don't normally re-read books in such quick succession but if I were to it would probably be Dear Mr. Knightley cause I just loved it that much!

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2017? I love the cover for Dear Mr. Knightley so much. Something about the swirling hand writing, the rose and the letters flying up through the air just seem to indicate the fun, romantic story to come.


11. Most memorable character of 2017? Hmm.... there aren't any that strongly stick out to me. I think probably Jennifer Worth from Call the Midwife. I still can't get over the fact that she chose to go work in east end London and stuck it out. What an incredible learning experience it must have been. As a nurse I can't help but be intrigued.

12. Most beautifully written book read in 2017? Probably Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. The whole series was beautifully written. I disagreed with other parts of it but the writing is spot on.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2017? Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. With getting married this year I read a lot of books about marriage and I loved them all but Sacred Marriage was the best. I also really liked The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller and Let Me Be a Woman by Elisabeth Elliot.

14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2017 to finally read? Dear Mr. Knightley for sure!!!!! Besides that also The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society and The Eyre Affair.

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2017? I'm so bad at keeping track of quotes anymore but here's one I liked from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”
“Why, what did she tell you?”
“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.”
16. Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2017?

  • Shortest- A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry- 151 pages
  • Longest- The Bourne Supremacy by Robert Ludlum- 688 pages 

17. Book That Shocked You The Most? No book really left me shocked. I suppose Call the Midwife left me the most just with the conditions that so many people lived in. Um... and there was one chapter in it that, if you've read it you know what I'm talking about, left me shocked for other reasons.

18. OTP OF THE YEAR (you will go down with this ship!) Samantha and Alex from Dear Mr. Knightley. <3

19. Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year? The Baudelaire children have such a sweet family relationship despite the craziness they endure.

20. Favorite Book You Read in 2017 From An Author You’ve Read Previously? This year I actually read very few books that were from authors I'd previously read. I read a lot of new authors. I'll go with The Bourne Supremacy by Robert Ludlum. It was a great sequel to Bourne Identity.

21. Best Book You Read In 2017 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure: I got a ton of recommendations from the blogosphere for The Eyre Affair and Dear Mr. Knightley. My aunt strongly recommended Gilead and it's sequels, which was honestly the only reason I read it. I probably never would have picked it up otherwise but I did enjoy them.

22. Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2017? John Carter from A Princess of Mars... he's a man! I also love Alex from Dear Mr. Knightely of course!!!! For a Re-read I"m still crushing on Ronald Eustace Psmith from Leave it to Psmith by P.G. Wodehouse.

23. Best 2017 debut you read? I didn't make it to any 2017 debuts this year.

24. Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year? Probably Edgar Rice Burroughs' description of Mars in A Princess of Mars.

25. Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read? DEAR MR. KNIGHTLEY!!!! Do you get that I loved that book yet? I also had a lot of fun reading A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

26. Book That Made You Cry Or Nearly Cry in 2017? Dear Mr. Knightely about had me crying. I'm not an emotional person but pregnancy is messing with me.

27. Hidden Gem Of The Year? DEAR MR. KNIGHTLEY!!!! Oh besides that? I was pleasantly surprised by both The Four Feathers and A Princess of Mars.

28. Book That Crushed Your Soul? DEAR MR. KNIGHTLEY!!!! I LOVED IT!!!!

29. Most Unique Book You Read In 2017? The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Eyre Affair, The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.

30. Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)? Adam Bede by George Elliot annoyed me a lot but I did find it interesting.

Your Blogging/Bookish Life 


1. New favorite book blog you discovered in 2017? I honestly can't remember which blogs I started following this year. I'm quite sure I started following some new ones but I'm not sure which ones!

2. Favorite review that you wrote in 2017? Well why not my review of Dear Mr. Knightley?

3. Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog? How about this one?

4. Best event that you participated in (author signings, festivals, virtual events, memes, etc.)? I participated in some different fun themed weeks like I Love Austen Week and Robin Hood Week, which were both fun.

5. Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2017? I now have 101 followers on Bloglovin! I know that sounds pathetic but I've been at like 98-99 for forever so I'm excited to break 100.

6. Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year? I started War and Peace!

7. Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog (whether it be by comments or views)? Apparently this one, which I find odd as there's nothing special about it.

8. Post You Wished Got A Little More Love? They've al pretty equally gotten lots of love though I noticed when scrolling back to look at stats for the last question that at the beginning of the year I was definitely getting more page views than I am now. So check out some of my more recent book reviews like this one, or this one, or this one. And yeah... "this one" doesn't tell you what book it's about... that's part of the fun!

9. Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores, etc.)? Nothing new that I can think of this year. I checked out lots of little used bookstores in my travels this year which were fun but they were all out of state so I'll probably never make it back.

10. Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year? Some of them... certainly needed to complete more of them.

Looking Ahead

1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2017 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2018? At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon. We read it for book club but it was the month I was gone on my honeymoon so.... priorities! I really do want to read it though so even though I'm late I'll get to it in 2018!

2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2018 (non-debut)? I'm so behind I don't keep up with current authors I like and their new books. Now I'll have to look around and see.


3. 2018 Debut You Are Most Anticipating? I don't know of any yet.


4. Series Ending/A Sequel You Are Most Anticipating in 2018? Same! Not a clue! I'm so behind!!!!!!!!


5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging Life In 2018? Complete the Classics Club Challenge!


6. A 2018 Release You’ve Already Read & Recommend To Everyone (if applicable): N/A
