Fun fact about me: I share a birthday with Lord Voldemort. Do with that information what you will. Today I’m popping out a quick tag. This tag is based all around your birthday! My birthday, in case you don’t know Good Old Voldy’s off-hand, is December 31st. So every year I have to look at the end of my birthday also as the wide expanse of a new year starting. It’s a super weird feeling I can’t even begin to describe. So I won’t. Instead, I’m just going to jump right into the tag:
- Count your birthday along your bookshelf and then subtract your birthday month.
I was thinking about it, and anyone born on New Year’s Day can’t do this question. Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that. I’m just saying. Anyway, the book I got was This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. Even though I don’t love Monsters of Verity, I’m still strangely glad my answer involves my favorite writer.
- If you could spend your birthday with any fictional character who would it be and why?
Adrian Ivashkov from Vampire Academy and Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. Why? Because he’s rich and knows how to party. He’d help me celebrate and live it up. Also he’d probably bring Sydney Sage, which is good because I love her.
- Find a book that takes place in the same season you were born in.
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. While it’s not about the season, snow and ice play a big role in this story. If you’ll recall my review, I read this book as a thematic read. Snow and ice play a lot into that. I’m worried the sequel is going to mess with that interpretation though. Hopefully it won’t, but… yeah.
- Find a book that is the color of your birthstone.
December’s birthstone is turquoise. The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh is a turquoise book. And, uh… yeah, that’s my answer.
- Pick a book set in a time period, world, or country you would like to have been born in.
I’m going to be super lame and pick The Secret History by Donna Tartt. There’s a bit of debate on when exactly the series takes place, but it’s around the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. And that’s my entire culture right there. I mean, technically I was born in the early ‘90s, but I mean I wish I was in my early 20s during that era.
Otherwise, put me in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, purely for that technology. By which I mean Cinder’s cyborg computer brain. That shit’s awesome.
I don’t really know a fun way to make this interactive… Oh, what character or celebrity do you share a birthday with? Let me know in the comments!
