Book of Fire: Avatar Blogger Award

Water. Earth. Fire. Air. I’ve heard stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Avatar Blogger kept balance between the Water Critics, Earth Reviewers, Fire Writers, and Air Readers. But that all changed when the Fire Writers attacked.

Only the Avatar Blogger, master of all four blogging elements could stop the ruthless Fire Writers. But when the world needed them the most, they vanished. A hundred years have passed and the Fire Writers are nearing victory in the war. 

Some people believe that the Avatar Blogger was never reborn into the Air Readers, and that the cycle is broken. But I haven’t lost hope. I still believe that somehow, the Avatar Blogger will return to save the book world!

How to become the Avatar Blogger:

  • To become the Avatar Blogger and save the book world from the Fire Writer Lord, the Avatar Blogger must master all four elements.
  • To master an element, a blogger must be tagged in one of the four following tags: Book of Water Tag, Book of Earth Tag, Book of Fire Tag, Book of Air Tag.
  • Once a blogger has posted all four tags to their page, they can message the Order of the White Lotus (@onmybookshelff) on twitter to receive the Avatar Blogger Award. (Not first come first serve. Everyone can get the award!)

Stepping into the Fire Nation might overwhelm you with all the red everywhere: clothes, buildings, banners.

The Fire Kingdom is warm, with plenty of places for a tropical vacation.

You won a prize for a trip to a tropical location. Where are you going and what books are you bringing with you?

I’d be going to Santorini, Greece. I would be bringing as many of my books from my June Book Haul as I could fit into my suitcase.

The Agni-Kai. A high-stakes duel between two Fire Writers to defend their honor.

What book would you defend till the end, even though others may hate it?

Easy, Harry Potter. I was made fun of so much as a child for reading these books. People thought I was a nerd, but I don’t care I love them and will defend them with my dying breath.

Fire is a dangerous element and even the most skilled writers are at risk for getting burned. The Fire Writer Lord Zuko is a perfect example.

What is one book that has touched who you are, and will stay with you forever?

I would have to say The Book Thief had a huge impact on me. It’s a powerful book and it really made me think about life, and how things could always be worse, but it’s important to keep my head up.

The origin of fire writing was to use the fire as an extension of the body, like it was a part of you. 

What is one bookish accessory or piece of memorabilia you can’t live without?

My book light! I am a night owl so I do most of my reading late at night, and I wouldn’t survive without have a few book lights around.

A skilled fire writer can use fire to propel themselves through the air, almost as if they were flying.

Are there any books you are looking forward to reading?

Yes! It’s been mentioned and I’m sure people are tired of me mentioning it but The Only Good Indians is one of my most highly anticipated books of the year and it comes out next month!

Fire bending is the only form of bending where you create the element out of nothing.

If you could make the perfect book, what would be included; 10 words or less?

It would be an epic high fantasy that feels heartwarming.

Stay At Home Book Tag

Happy Thursday everyone! I was tagged by @ Mad’s Books and this looks like a really fun book tag.

Laying in bed — A book you read in one day

I read If I Stay in one sitting and it was such a sad book. My friend bought this for me for Christmas a few years ago because she absolutely loved it, and thought I would too. It was a good book but it isn’t one of my favorites. I have the sequel but I’ve never picked it up, it’s gathering dust on my bookshelf.

If you like The Fault in Our Stars I think you would like this book because it gave me the same kind of vibes. This one has a little bit of a happier ending though.

There’s also a movie that looked good, but I’ve never watched it. It has Chloë Grace Moretz in it, so I’m sure the acting is top notch, maybe I’ll watch it and do a movie review.

Snacking – A book that is a ‘guilty pleasure’ read

Honestly, I love Pretty Little Liars. The show and the books are way over the top and a little ridiculous, but they’re fun. I even got my boyfriend into the show with me.

If I need something to read purely for entertainment purposes, I’ll pick these up and take a read. These are the type of YA that all the pretentious readers talk bad about, but I think they’re great.

These books are also part of the rare few where I think the show is actually better. They got a great cast to play in that show and it totally outshines the books, but I still enjoy the books.

Who doesn’t love a good teen drama?

Netflix — A series that you want to start

I have had this book on my shelf for so long! It sounds really interesting I’ve just never picked it up. I’ve only heard good things about these books so I feel like I have to read them.

I was working at a bookstore when this series got really big, and they were flying off the shelves. I remember having to wait to get my hands on the first in the series because it had become so popular. But, for some reason it got lost in my bookshelf.

When I’ve beat down my TBR a little bit I’ll have to dust this one off. Or I’ll just add it to the massive TBR stack, because we all know that list will probably never get smaller 😅

Deep clean — A book that has been on your TBR for ages

This poor book has been sitting on my shelf for 3-4 years now. I actually read around the first 50 pages, but it was right in the middle of when I was taking finals, so I never got around to finishing it. It was a good story and the main character was a badass, but it got thrown to the wayside.

I think I’ll actually go find this one and pull it off the shelf, that way I’m forced to at least pick it up again.

It’s a retelling of Vlad The Impaler, I really shouldn’t need that much of a push to pick this one up again. This is the kind of historical fiction that I find most fascinating.

Animal Crossing — A book you recently bought because of the hype

The hype for The Power has definitely died down, but the fact that it was an Obama pick and it was held in such high regard by The New York Times definitely inspired me to pick it up.

I read this book and reviewed it. It definitely lived up to the hype. The Power is an important novel for this day and age, so if you’re thinking about picking it up, do it.

FaceTime — A book you were gifted

My dad bought me a copy of Severance because I asked him to. It was a mistake, I hate this book. Here’s a review and let’s pretend like I didn’t read it.

Self-care — What is one thing you have done recently to look after yourself

I’ve made sure that I stay sane, and blogging has been a really good outlet for that. I’ve been going a little stir crazy, but being able to reach out to the writing community has been awesome for my mental health. Blogging keeps me busy and I’m still able to retain a little bit of a social life through talking to other bloggers on Twitter.

BONUS — An upcoming release you are looking forward to

I’ve talked about The Only Good Indians a few times now, and I’m still so hyped for this book. There aren’t a lot of hyped up Native American authors, especially in the horror genre, and I am so excited for this.

I actually started reading Mongrels by this author and it is so good so far. It’s just making me more excited for The Only Good Indians.

I tag anyone who would like to participate.
