The Jennifer Lawrence Book Tag was originally made by Michael BookLion and was then altered by Tashapolis which is the version we are doing.
1) Swearing off social media: A book you refuse to read?
Ann: All of the remaining Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I read the first one and thought it was terrible although everyone in my class seems to love them.
Clare: Any of the Splintered books by A.G. Howard. I know everyone seems to love them but I tried to read the first book and I hated it. Sorry.
2) The Oscar trip: A book series that hit a snag?
Ann: The Divergent series hit a massive snag. Most of the series I've read haven't really hit snags.
Clare: The Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine. I feel like maybe it just went on too long. I did finish the series but it definitely started to drag.
3) The viral T-Swift photobomb at the Golden Globes: A book/series you didn't know would get so popular?
Ann: I tend to read books after they become popular so I can't think of an answer for this one.
Clare: The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. I remember reading it way back when it first came out and nobody was really talking about it, and now it seems like it's everywhere.
4) Work with David O'Russel: Dysfunctional Character you can't help but love?
Ann: Sebastian from the Mortal Instruments is fairly dysfunctional. But I somehow love him anyway.
Clare: Alex from Made You Up. I only recently read this but I absolutely adore it and she was such a wonderful character.
5) Mystique: A villain who think's they're doing what's right?
Ann: President Snow thinks he's doing it for the welfare of the state but he really isn't.
Clare: I feel like this probably applies to most villains. But erm... Valentine from the Mortal Instruments series.
6) Bradley Cooper: What author do you find yourself always coming back to?
Ann: J.K. Rowling. Every time I want a book to read but don't know what to read I just read Harry Potter.
Clare: Eva Ibbotson. She only has a few "grown up" books, most of her books are for children, but I find I re-read her books a lot.
7) Spoiled for Homeland on National television: A plot line you were spoiled for?
Ann: Alice in Zombieland. My friends had all read it and spoiled it for me.
Clare: The ending of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Ruined. Spoiled.
8) The Hunger Games: Favourite high profile series?
Ann: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. A great, great book series.
Clare: Is it ok to actually say The Hunger Games? Because other than Harry Potter that would be it.
9) Everyone's Obsession With Being her Best Friend: A character who'd make your ultimate best friend?
Ann: Isabelle from the Mortal Instruments. She is so badass and awesome and I'd love a friend like that. She could teach me how to fight.
Clare: Ooh... I think my childhood favourites fit this best: Anne of Green Gables, Pollyanna and Katy from What Katy Did. And of course Jo March from Little Women.
10) Everything She's Ever Said: Favourite comedic/snarky character?
Ann: Simon from the Mortal Instruments (again), he seems to deal with things by getting snarkier and snarkier.
Clare: Harry Potter. He is so very, very sarcastic in the books (he lost a little sarcasm in the book to film translation). And Percy Jackson.
Bonus Questions: The questions from the original tag that were missed/changed in the altered version
Growing Up in Kentucky: Favourite book/series set in a rural area?
Ann: Anne of Green Gables my L.M. Montgomery. It's the classic I am reading this month and the description of the farm is just so amazing.
Clare: Magnolia by Kristi Cook. I read this almost entirely because of the setting and it was very good, in quite a fluffy way.
Discovery on the Streets of NY: A little known book you found whilst browsing and ended up loving?
Ann: Ash by Malinda Lo. I found it browsing in the school library and ended up loving it. I definitely agree with Clare's choice as well.
Clare: Chime by Franny Billingsley. I was browsing Amazon and saw the cover, which is gorgeous and took a chance and ended up loving it so much.
Beginnings on TV into Film: A series that gets better with each installment?
Ann: Hunger Games, it just gets more and more exciting and Katniss grows as a character.
Clare: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Starts good, gets great and then gets phenomenal. I can't wait for Queen of Shadows!
J-Law and Chris Martin: Favourite book by a collaboration of authors?
Ann: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It's the only collaboration I've read but I also really liked it. The film was awful.
Clare: Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. I love the individual stories and how they came together.
