Your Future Book Tag

I saw this really awesome tag over on Lauren Stoolfire's blog which you should go check out right now because it's awesome.

The Tag:
Choose five books to answer the questions.  The five I chose were ones I've either begun or finished that I have with me at college.

Clockwork Angel

Heir of Fire

Star Wars Trilogy

The Sword of Shannara

Words of Radiance

The Questions:

1. Open book 1 to a random page.  Look at the first word on the page.  If it's less than 5 letter, you will go to college.  If it's more than 5 letter, you won't go to college. (Clockwork Angel)

My first word was "Magnus" which is six letters, so I won't go to college (which is funny since I'm already here, so maybe I just won't finish?).

2. Open book 1 to a random page.  The first name you see.  Think of that persons job, that will be your job.  Note: Is that person still in school?  You will be a teacher.  You don't know that persons job?  You will be unemployed. (Clockwork Angel)

The first name to appear was Will, so I guess he's employed as a Shadowhunter.  Yay, my dream job!

3. Open book 2 to a random page.  The first name you see will be the person you will marry. (Heir of Fire)

Chaol.  I get to marry Chaol.  :)

4. Open book 2 to a random page.  The first name you see will be your best friend. (Heir of Fire)

Manon gets to be my best friend.  I suppose we'll see how that goes down, won't we?

5. Open book 3 to a random page.  Look at the second word on the page.  Count how many letters that word has, remove 2 letters.  That's how many children you will have. (Star Wars Trilogy)

My word was curiosity, so that's seven children.  Wow, that's way more than I could have predicted on my own.

6. How many children did you have?  Open the third book as many times to see who your children will be.  If you have no children, open the book once.  The first name you will see, will be something of your choice.  A couple of example: neighbor, father in law etc. (Star Wars Trilogy)

Have to open it seven times.  Okay, here goes: Luke, Bib, Ackbar, Leia, Vader, Biggs, Artoo-Detoo.  I hope Chaol likes Star Wars!

7. Book 4: Where does this book take place?  This will be the place where you will live. (Sword of Shannara)

It takes place in the Four Lands, which is a dystopian future of America where there are elves and dwarves and things.  I'm cool with this.

8. Open book 4 to a random place, the first name you see, does this person have a car, bike etc.? That will be your transportation.  Note: teleporting, broom etc. is allowed.  If your character had no means of transportation that you know of, you will be using public transportation. (Sword of Shannara)

Hendel.  I'm pretty sure his transportation is his feet.  So, public transportation it is.

9.  Does this book have any animals in it?  Pick your favorite animal, that will be your pet.  No animals in the book?  You will have no pet. (Sword of Shannara)

I'm pretty sure I have no pet.

10. Open book 5 to a random page.  The first name you see will be your enemy. (Words of Radiance)

Adolin!  No, my baby!  I can't be his enemy!  Maybe something atrocious will happen and I'll have to hate him.

My Future: 

So I won't finish college (that's okay because I'm a Shadowhunter) but I'll fall in love with Chaol.  Manon will officiate our wedding.  Chaol and I will seven children, all named after Star Wars characters, and we will move to the Four Lands.  I take public transportation everywhere, but that's fine, too.  The thing that kills me is that I don't have any pets.  My enemy is Adolin.

I tag:

Everyone who wants to do this, but particularly Christina at Books and Prejudice.

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Thanks for the shout out! This tag was so much fun. Like you said, I really, really hope Chaol likes Star Wars!

    1. I can't imagine actually naming children Vader or Artoo-Detoo.
