A couple weeks ago I was nominated by Lydia S. for this bedtime book tag. Sorry for taking so long to actually do it. Sometimes it takes me a while to find time in my schedule to post. I'm sure y'all have run into the same things. Especially around Christmastime.Well, anyways, long post short, here are the questions...along with the answers...and then instead of nominating new people to do the tag, I thought I'd just invite ALL of you (who haven't gotten nominated, or don't mind doing it again) to do it if you want to.
1. A book that kept you up all night.
Hmm...since I sleep in the same room as my older sisters, I can't really get away with reading a book past, like, 11:30 (pm). So I don't think a book has ever kept me up past that. I've gotten in trouble with my sisters for not turning my reading light off a couple times for especially interesting books...but I can't remember all the titles. I know "A Tangled Thread" by Baroness Orczy was one of them though.
2. A book that made you scared to sleep.
Actually, I do have a book for this one that I remember clearly. I finished the book "Under the Sign of the Sugared Plum" right before going to bed. THAT WAS A BAD IDEA. Warning: NEVER read that book before going to sleep!! It's a historical fiction book about two sister's living in London during the bubonic plague. Don't get me wrong, it was a really good book, and I think the author did a phenomenal job writing it...but it was meant to be read during the day. Otherwise you get dreams about everyone getting the bubonic plague and dying. Yeah...
3. A book that made you go to sleep.
I can't remember the title, but I know I almost fell asleep while reading one book by George MacDonald. I also almost fell asleep during some of the more boring sections of Innocents Abroad but that only happened once.
4. A book that left you tossing and turning all night in anticipation of it's release.
I don't think this has ever happened...I usually don't have trouble sleeping. I have gotten excited over books being released, but they've never kept me up all night.
5. A book that has your favorite boy/girlfriend relationship.
I really like the relationship between Anne (of Green Gables) and Gilbert...at least, AFTER they get married. ;) I also like all the relationships that I create in my own books...but then, I'm a LITTLE bias. B-)
6. A book that would be your worst nightmare to live in.
Any of the Left Behind books. Thankfully, I'll be one of the ones safe in heaven when all that stuff happens!
7. A book that reminds you of night time.
None come to mind at this moment...
8. A book that had a nightmarish cliffhanger.
Ahhh! Why can't I remember the titles!!! Argh. I hate it when you have a book plot in your mind that would answer a question perfectly and then you can't remember the title. Bother. That's going to keep me up tonight.
(actually, it probably won't...)
9. A book you actually dreamed about.
I've had nightmares from books...but I usually only dream nice dreams about my own characters because I have to have faces of people in my head to dream about them. And I do for my own characters. I wish I could videotape some of my dreams and re-play them for you all, because they're usually very entertaining. ;)
10. A book monster you wouldn't want to find under your bed.
I'm doing the same answer as Lydia here, because it was 1) a good answer, and 2) something I REALLY wouldn't want to find under my bed: Nazgul from Lord of the Rings.
Yeah....they're creepy. What else can I say? I mean, would YOU want to find one of these guys under YOU'RE bed? Even their horses are creepy! I didn't think it was possible to have a creepy horse...but they pulled it off.
