The Animal Book Tag

Hey everyone! My cousin and I created this awesome book tag. 🙂



1) Add the tag graphic to your post.

2) Thank the person who tagged you.

3) Answer the questions.

4) Tag five bloggers.

5) And you’re done!

Question #1: What is your favorite book with animals as the main characters?

The Adventures of Max and Liz and The Epic Order of the Seven are my favorite series. The only one I’ve read is the second book, The Schemer, the Dreamer, and the Robe.

The Adventures of Max and Liz are basically the same as the The Epic Order of the Seven. The publishers just changed the name or something.

Q #2: Tell us about the book!

I’m not good at explaining things, but I’ll try my best. Keep in mind that I’ve only read the second book in the series, so I’m not exactly certain what the first one was about.

Max, Liz, Kate, and Al earned immortality (from the first book, which yeah sounds weird. :P). They have waited for centuries for a word from the Maker and then they get their first directive from God to serve him for important points in human history. They learn they are to work behind the scenes in the life of Joseph.
With the help of a British mouse and a camel, they must combat the forces of evil that are out to thwart their plans, leading them into mysterious adventures with pyramids and mummies. If Max and Liz fail in this mission, all of Egypt will suffer, and the Hebrew nation will never be born.

So basically this story is about Joseph. It’s so awesome! You should totally read it! 😀

Q #3: Which is your favorite animal in it?

I don’t know that I had any particular favorites… I suppose Al. He made me laugh when he was clueless and always wanted food. 🙂

Q# 4: What is your favorite scene in it?

Er, it’s really hard to choose just one! I really liked most of Joseph’s scenes, but I especially liked when he arrived at the slave market. I just found that interesting! Oh and I liked it when Joesph and Kate winked at each other.  🙂

Q #5: What is your favorite quote from the book??

I going to be honest. I don’t remember liking a specific quote so I looked on GR to see if there was one that stuck out to me. There was only one, so I choose that one. I’m not exactly sure if it’s from the book I read, but it kind of sounds familiar. Or am I just telling myself that? The world will never know….

Julia @ The Barefoot Gal

And you!!!


Thank you for reading!

The Goodreads Tag

I scream


You scream


We all scream for books!

What a greeting! Anyway, I saw The Goodreads Tag on The Write Books Blog and she said anyone and everyone could do it. That’s why I’m here today. 🙂

What was the last book you read?

If the question’s referring to the last published book I read, then this one:


I’ve been reading the Warriors series… and it feels like there is a zillion books or something. Anyway, I’m reading the Dawn of the Clans, a spin-off of the books that started it all. I recently finished book two, Thunder Rising. Now I’m currently reading book three, The First Battle.

What are you currently reading?

Um, on GR I have a lot listed that I’m currently reading (and some of them are still packed away), so I’ll list the most recent ones.



Befriending the Beast

Ten: How the Commandments

The First Battle (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans #3)

What was the last book you marked to-read?


I like this author’s Minecraft books, so don’t judge me. (although the cover is a bit iffy) 😛

Do you use the star system?

Yeah, but I pretty much base it on my liking of the book and if it was good. I really don’t don’t give any in-depth reviews unless I need to (such as reviewing it for someone) or I really like it.

Are you doing the 2017 Reading Challenge?

Yes and I think I am doing quite well.

2017 Reading Challenge

2017 Reading Challenge
Crystal has
read 101 books toward
her goal of
207 books.

Although, half of the books I read might be picture books. 🙂

Do you have a wishlist?

Who wouldn’t?! Well, I really don’t have too many. A few:

Tigerheart’s Shadow (Warriors Super Edition #10)

The Book Thief

Indian in the Cupboard


Who are your favorite authors?

I’m not an author-person…. for some series, yeah, but otherwise… Here are some that I like: Erin Hunter, Janette Oke, and Mark Cheverton.

Have you joined any groups?

Yes, multiple groups. Either they’re christian, Marvel, or poll related. Fun Fact: I’m not really active in most of them unless I want to be.

How many Goodreads Shelves do you have?

Eh, I have 38 shelves. I do need them. 😛

Star-Wars, classics, favorites, library-books, etc.

I tag… dun dun dun da- You! I’m not certain who’s been tagged, and we all know it can be annoying having to do the same tag again, so makes sense.
