Tag Meme

I was tagged in a book meme by the lovely Kris from A Book from Snowy River! The idea of this meme is to answer the tagger’s ten questions and then pass on ten of your own to ten more bloggers. It’s a fun way to keep in touch with your friends in the blogging realm. So here are the ten questions I was asked by Kris.

How did you choose the name for your blog?

Simple. I love writing, and I have a fascination with clever names. I also love the name ‘Liberty Bell,’ so I switched that around and went with “Writing Belle,’ which is French for beauty, of course. *wink*

If you could be any character in a book, who would you be and why?

I’ve often thought about this, and it occurred to me that I have a Hermione addiction. She’s one of my favorite book characters of all time, and she’s resourceful, brilliant, and courageous. And she has magical powers. The complete package, right? 

Ever since you started writing, have you met any authors of your favorite books?

Yes! I have “virtually” met P.T. Michelle, the author of The Brightest Kind of Darkness and Jennifer L. Armentrout, the author of the Lux Series and the Covenant Series. I’ve also met lots of nice new authors like Bridget Bowers and Summer Day.

What is your favorite cover art that you have seen?

 I love the cover for Tiger’s Curse, by Colleen Houck. I have an obsession with tigers.

Do you have a strict blogging schedule, or are you more relaxed?

I make it a point to post every other day, at least. It gives me time to get my books read and reviewed.

Is there a book you would love to have a sequel?

Absolutely. I’d like to see a sequel to Hourglass, by Myra McEntire, or The Eleventh Plague, by Jeff Hirsch. I actually think there are sequels in the works, so my wish might be granted.

What is your favorite book to TV show adaptation?

Definitely The Vampire Diaries. There are a few things I would personally change about the show, and although it doesn’t follow the books at all, it’s still very
entertaining and contains all the core characters.

Everyone likes to shop for books differently, do you buy online or spend hours in a bookstore or library?

I browse for books online, then either go into the store and buy them or order them online. Or I get an e-book. But I get a ton of my books from the library, because mine carries new releases.

Do you prefer reading paperbacks or ebooks?

Both. I have an open mind, but I still like the smell of paper.

If you had to write a novel featuring yourself, what kind of character would you play?

Well, anything featuring me would be pretty boring, so it would have to be me somehow getting thrown into an insane situation. I’d probably play the slightly crazy book addict. Yeah. Slightly.

Now that you know all the deepest secrets of my soul we can move on. 
I am tagging the following blogs in this meme. If you’re tagged, feel free to keep the meme going by answering the following questions on your own blog and passing your original questions on to ten blogs!
Here are the blogs I tagged: 

Here are the ten questions! 

  1.  What is your favorite book to movie adaptation? 
  2. Who is your top book boyfriend/girlfriend?
  3. What actor or actress do you think most resembles that character? 
  4. If you could jump into any genre, what would it be and why? 
  5. Do you prefer to read fiction or non-fiction?
  6. Pertaining to your sex, would you rather read a book with a male or a female protagonist?
  7. Why do you love to blog?
  8. Do you love books with a sense of humor, or do you prefer something more dramatic?
  9. Have you ever met a famous author?
  10. Where is your favorite place to read - and when? 


  1. Ah brilliant answers! TVD all the way! :D
    I love that you chose Hermione, not only for the fact shes magical, but the points you made on her courage, brilliance and resourcefulness. Aside from the boy troubles, shes pretty awesome. i even love that she is a know it all. Harry Potter wouldnt have made it to the final book without her.
    The smell of paper... yes! Although I am sure the kindle or ebook plasticy smell has its appeal to some.


    1. Lol, yes, the smell of plastic has an effect on people! Thanks for those great questions, by the way! :)

  2. You sneaky wench! Playing tag now are we? LOL.

    Thanks for tagging me. I'll be sure to get my payback...err I mean thank you properly for the honor.

    1. LOL, why Bridget....you know, I needed some virtual exercise and a game of tag seemed simply lovely.... *evil grin* I shall bestow knighthood upon you later. You know, after I'm done sharpening that knighting sword. Or because I'm short on swords, hopefully you'll go for an errant tree branch. Just a thought.

  3. Fun questions! Thanks for the tag! And you really did a brilliant job picking a blog name! It's one of my favorites!

  4. This is so cool! Thanks for tagging me! :)
