So, as some people know, I am a huge bookworm. Recently I have started watching some booktubers on YouTube. A couple of them were doing tags of two of my favorite celebrities (And I have absolutely no shame in liking Taylor Swift). I decided to do them myself! If you also like books and either of these two lovely ladies, I suggest doing this tag yourself!

TAYLOR SWIFT BOOK TAG

1. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with.
  Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. This book is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and just reading the summary alone, I thought it would be one of the most wonderful books ever. Oh Lord, I was so wrong!! Nyx just makes me so ANGRY!! You will see why when I finish and upload a journal of my reading list for this summer (which will also include the synopsis of each book and my personal reviews of them). So, Cruel Beauty, you will no longer be owned by me in just a few days and on a shelf at Goodwill. And we are never ever ever getting back together.

2. Red - Pick a book with a RED cover.
  Fire by Kristin Cashore. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet (for one reason is that I need to reread Graceling simply because it's been way too long since I read it) but hey...it has red on the cover.

3. The Best Day - Pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic.
  I actually have two for this one. The Percy Jackson series (four of the five) by Rick Riordan and Gamer Girl by Mari Mancusi. I read most of the Percy Jackson series when I was a freshman in high school and was completely obsessed with them. However, I never got to read the last one. But now I do own it, but I don't remember what exactly happened in the first four, so I'm gonna have to reread them.
     As for Gamer Girl, I bought it at a middle school book fair after parent teacher conferences. So far in my life I've read it like five times. I don't care how cheesy the writing is, it will always be one of my favorite books.

4. Love Story - Pick a book with forbidden love.
    Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. Zombie and human. Or...dead person and living person. Yeah, a much better love story than Twilight, believe it or not. If you haven't read the book or seen the movie...DO IT.

5. I Knew You Were Trouble - Pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love.
    Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments series. So far I've only read the first three books of this series and this particular character is introduced in the third book. I don't know what it is about Sebastian, but he's such a wonderful villain, so much better than Valentine!!

6. Innocent (written b/c of Kanye West!) - Pick a book that someone ruined the ending for.
    The Assassin's Creed books by Oliver Bowden. Okay, so I kinda spoiled the endings of these books for myself simply by playing the games. The books are basically the cutscenes from the original games (Sorry, Desmond doesn't exist in these books). HOWEVER, there are a couple scenes in The Secret Crusade (the first game) that are not even in the game at all, so I wasn't expecting those to be coming. So far I have The Secret Crusade, Renaissance (ACII), and Brotherhood; I have not yet to read Brotherhood, but I do have a basic idea on what is going to be happening by just playing the game.

7. Everything Has Changed - Pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development.
    I'd have to say that both Ember and Garrett from the Talon Saga by Julie Kagawa have quite a bit of character development. I've only read the first book so far (out of two, but there is going to be a third one) but there was a dramatic change in what Ember and Garrett believed just in the first one alone.

8. You Belong With Me - Pick your most anticipated book release. 
    Once again I'll have to go with the Talon Saga. This will be the only book series that I'm not so late in the party for and will actually be super excited to have the next installment of in my hands right away. (...Oh, and it can be in hardcover since I own the first two in hardcover. I'm super weird about my books.) Soldier, the third book for Talon, doesn't come out until next year, but when it does, it will be in my hands hopefully the day that it does come out!

9. Forever and Always - Pick your favorite book couple.
    Grace and Sam from the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater. Ugh, just....my OTP. Forever and always. :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

10. Come Back, Be Here - Pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much.
    Once again, I'm going with the Shiver series. One time I did lend out the first book to my best friend, but I did, in fact, miss it WAY TOO MUCH. So in order for her to read the other two (...okay, now there's a fourth one which I just found out recently. I need to pick it up soon!!), I just bought a box set for her birthday, lol. I will never lend this series out to anyone ever again.

11. Teardrops On My Guitar - Pick a book that made you cry a lot.
    Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer(???). When I was a freshman, I was just sitting in English class while it was our free reading time. There wasn't even a sad part going on in the book, but for some very odd reason, my vision started blurring and tears started coming down. I believe it was Eclipse that I was reading at the time that happened. 

12. Shake It Off - Pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters.
    The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. I just recently started seeing so much hate for this series, which I don't understand at all. I've only read the first two books so far, but they are both FANTASTIC!

13. Stay Stay Stay - A book that you wanted to go on forever.
    Doctor Who: Beautiful Chaos by Gary Russel. I am a pretty big Doctor Who fan (AKA Whovian) and when I received this book as a birthday present two years ago, I got so excited. This particular book is an extra adventure with my favorite Doctor, Mr. David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor). And because it was another exciting adventure with my favorite Doctor, I didn't want it to end; I was really sad to say goodbye to Tennant once again. I did really appreciate the Star Wars joke that was toward the end of the book made by Donna, though. XD

14. All Too Well - A book series that you wish could just keep going.
    The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. The trilogy was fantastic, but I'd like to learn more about some of the other characters. Maybe release some novellas with bonus stories in the point of views of said characters, taking place before they were in the Games? Like Cato, Foxface, Finnick, etc. I think it would be interesting!

And on the note of the last question being answered with the The Hunger Games, it's a perfect transition for the...

JENNIFER LAWRENCE BOOK TAG

1. Swearing off social media- A book you refuse to read?
    Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James. Simple as that. However, some of the quotes that I've heard have seriously had me laughing my butt off!! One in particular I seriously hope made into the movie. XD ("DO I AFRAID YOU?!?!")


2. The Oscar trip- A book/series that hit a snag?
    Like half of my bookshelf...simply because I buy so many books at once, determined to read them, then I go "ooohhhh look NEW BOOKS!!" then forget about them completely. But I am still determined to read the books that have been forgotten about me. At some point I'm going to have a bookathon of nothing but books that I've had forever but never read and books that I need to reread before I read the next in a series.


3. The viral TSwift photobomb at the Golden Globes: A book/series you didn't know would get so popular?
    If I Stay by Gayle Forman. It is one of my favorite books of all time and I read it long it before it became a movie. I have the second book sitting on my bookshelf, but I haven't gotten around to reading it. I'm going to reread If I Stay before I read Where She Went...because I don't quite remember everything that happened in If I Stay.


4. Work with David O. Russel- Dysfunctional character you can't help but love?
    Jorge from The Scorch Trials (the second Maze Runner book). Jorge is completely nuts, bonkers! But I love him to death. I hope he survives through The Death Cure. 


5. Mystique- A villain who thinks they're doing what's right?
    I'd have to go with the Templars from the Assassin's Creed books by Oliver Bowden. Both the Brotherhood and Templars believe that they are doing the right thing while fighting each other. It's kinda hard to explain. Just play the games and/or read the books. 


6. Bradley cooper: What author do you find yourself always coming back to?
    Gayle Forman. I've only read If I Stay but I always find myself immediately swiping for a book that has her name on it. I'm only missing two books from her now. One of my future bookathons will be nothing but her books. So...If I Stay, Where She Went, Just One Day, Just One Year, I Was Here, and Sisters in Sanity.  


7. Spoiled for Homeland on National television: A plot line you were spoiled for?
    I have three books for this...The Hunger Games, Warm Bodies, and Divergent. I kinda spoiled myself as I saw the movies in theaters before I even read the books. I didn't even know that Warm Bodies was a book first!! I started reading Hunger Games, but didn't get far in it at the time that I saw the movie in theaters twice in one week; the first with my best friend and a mutual friend of ours and then a couple days later with my boyfriend at the time. Divergent I knew was a book, but had absolutely no clue as to what it was about, but I went and saw the movie with my best friend anyway. 


8. The Hunger Games- Favorite high profile series?
    I would have to say that currently it is the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. (...I'm pretty sure it's high profiled?) So far I've only read the first two books, but I am about to read the prequel novellas soon and will be caught up with the series in no time! It's such a wonderful fantasy series; just simply the best fantasy series I've read so far.


9. Everyone's obsession with being her best friend: A character who'd make your ultimate best friend?
    ...Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass. She is a kick butt assassin. Who. Reads. Books!! Yes people, a book character who reads books herself. I want to be best friends with the land's greatest assassin and talk about books with her! And overall, she's just an amazing character. Who wouldn't want to be best friends with the great Calaena?


10. Everything she's ever said- Favorite comedic/snarky character?
    Quinn from SYLO by D.J. MacHale. "It's all in the knots!!"
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: My personal "Motivational Songs" playlist
  • Reading: Shatter Me-Tahereh Mafi
  • Watching: Trying to decide what to watch next
  • Playing: Trying to decide what to play next
  • Eating: Garlic bread
  • Drinking: Water
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantART for a little over six years now.

2. What does your username mean?
Actually, it was supposed to be the name of a band that I was supposed to be the lead singer of way back in middle school, lol. My best friend at the time/crush at the time/was supposed to be the guitarist and I were hanging out one day and he out of the blue asked me if I wanted to be the lead singer of a band that he was going to form. I immediately accepted, as my dream at the time too was to be a professional singer. One day he called my house and asked me to come up with the name of said band. I was staring at my copy of Sonic Heroes as I was trying to come up with the name.

"How about the Sonic Rockers?"
"That's awesome! Yeah, we'll go with that!!"

The band never really got formed, but the name still kind of sticks with me to this day.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Shy, outgoing, geek.

4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed.

5. What was your first deviation?
My first deviation was an attempt at drawing Mario and Luigi based on a book of how to draw Nintendo characters that I had. (Actually not too entirely sure if I still have that book...) It was supposed to be a Christmas present for one of my cousins down in Oklahoma. I think that and my attempt at Link are still somewhat decent. (Zelda...not so much.)

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I have really taken a liking to writing since I started college.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital art for sure.

8. What was your first favourite?
Yeah, like you would really expect me to remember that. XD

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I usually favorite digital art.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I would have to go with :iconsakimichan:. Her art is AMAZING!!

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
There are several people that I want to meet in person. :iconsilverstar-alchemist:, :iconcolresslawliet:, :iconthehedgehogengine:, :iconaugustxbane:, and :icontwilidragonrin: just to name a few.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

The friends on DeviantART that I also know in person have taught me what friendship is really about.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Microsoft Word? Lol

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

I don't exactly have a place for inspiration. Just anything that comes to mind for me to write. I have a few ideas on my Pinterest. Songs, certain events, and hearing other people's dreams can be other random sparks for inspiration, too.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Oh Lord, I don't even know! I guess interacting with all of you. Simple as that.^^

  • Reading: SYLO-D.J. MacHale
  • Watching: Beyond the Boundary
  • Playing: Super Smash Bros. For 3DS

I think it's time that I updated this 'about me' section. It's been way too long since I have.

First off, you may simply call me either Stevie, Oath, or Sonic.

I am a sophomore in college. Although I'm currently working on my general subjects at a community college, I would like to transfer to a four year university and be able to continue my love for music as a career. I have been involved in music ever since I blew my first note into my clarinet in 2005. I have been in band for nine years while I have only been in choir for eight. I take pride as an alto, though there are times where I wish I was a soprano so I could perform certain songs without any trouble of hitting any of the higher notes.

I am an amateur voice actress. I have been voice acting since June of 2009 and it is my dream to move down to Dallas, Texas to start voicing for FUNimation and become a professional. Currently I voice in Super Smash Bros. Brawl machinimas. You may refer to this journal to see what all I have voiced in throughout the years.
sonicrocker.deviantart.com/jou…

I've become more of a bookworm throughout the years. My favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi, although sometimes I like to take a break from them and read a book or two in the regular teen fiction genre. My favorite trilogy is the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater.

There isn't really much else to say about me. I'm a musician, a voice actress, and a geek, basically. I hope you enjoy what all I have to offer here on DA~

Current Residence: Small college town in Eastern Iowa
Favourite genre of music: Rock and soundtrack
Favourite style of art: Photography, literature
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Droid Razr Maxx HD
Wallpaper of choice: anime stuff
Skin of choice: purple
Favourite cartoon character: Sakura Haruno (she represents me the most)
Personal Quote: "I'm going to succeed because I'm crazy enough to think I can."
