Finding the Drama Queen in Me

Well, more like finding which historical queen am I in this quiz. Apparently I am…

Your result for The Which Historical Queen Are You Test

Queen Hatshepsut

You scored 67% on ruling power!

Queen Hatshepsut

You are: Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt, 15th century B.C. Hatshepsut was a powerful political person in Egypt even before she assumed the title of Pharaoh. She had a peaceful reign promoting trade and the arts. Her beautiful temple at Deir el-Bahri still stands west of Thebes.

Who the heck is that?? But I answered that I love colourful dresses with exotic designs, who’s this topless queen I’m supposed to resemble??

Technically, this isn’t very bookish nor literary, but since we are on that topic, have you read any historical fiction about royalty? I like Philippa Gregory’s royalty fiction; so far, I’ve read The Constant Princess (about Catherine of Aragon, wife of Arthur, then later Charles the VIII) and The Virgin Lover (about Queen Elizabeth, just after claiming the throne and was in a precarious political position who has fallen in love with her married friend and has an affair with him). Have yet to get my hands on that famous The Other Boleyn Girl. They aren’t historically accurate, but they’re sure real fun to read and ponder about Gregory’s interpretation of royalty then.

I’d Be A Great Romance Writer With No Typos


You Should Be a Romance Novelist


You see the world as it should be, and this goes double for all matters of the heart.

You can find the romance in any situation, and you would make a talented romance story writer…

And while you may be a traditional romantic, you’re just as likely to be drawn to quirky or dark love stories.

As long as it deals with infatuation, heartbreak, and soulmates – you could write it.

What Type of Writer Should You Be?

Your Spelling is Perfect


You got 10/10 correct.

Your spelling is excellent. You also have a great memory and eye for detail.

How’s Your Spelling?

I tried writing a love scene before but I was so shy about it, so I don’t know if I make a good romance writer! At least no annoying typos from me, though, apparently. 😛

(But I must say I am quite a romantic / idealist / fairy tale happy ending sort of girl.)

Just have to share this South Park character made for me by a friend. It’s so me!

Finally, I took this Which Austen Heroine Are You? quiz.

Of Course I’m a Book Nerd, And An Anal One At That

Swiped this quiz from Chris@bookarama!

What Be Your Nerd Type?

Your Result: Literature Nerd
 

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it’s eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today’s society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It’s okay. I understand.

Raise Your Hand If You Like Quizzes

How can you not, when it’s asking you who’s your ideal literary lover!

Your closest match is Daniel Deronda
Who says that nice guys finish last? After all, you like your blokes to be caring and gentle – perhaps because you know those brooding, temperamental types are more trouble than they’re worth! So stuff the Darcys and Heathcliffs and settle down with sweet, sensitive Daniel Deronda, the eponymous hero of George Eliot’s last novel. Now here’s a man who’ll never forget your anniversary!

Don’t even know who he was until now. *mumbles*

If you fancy yourself being somewhat of a fan of ol’ Dicky Charles Dickens, test your knowledge on the life of Dickens quiz. As you can tell by my attempted term of endearment for this great writer in English literature, I’m not a fan of his so I’ll let you take the test instead of me. Post results in comments, would you! 🙂

Blooming Booming Quizzes

You’re Ulysses!
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don’t make any sense, but compared
to what else you could say, what you’re saying now makes tons of sense. What people do
understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once
brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in
the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you
additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

Hahaha! As if. (Haven’t read it, nor do I plan to.)

Here’s another one that tests your knowledge on boomer lit.

Stories that would have turned out differently if the protagonists had had cell phones.

ROMEO:
News from Verona! How now, Balthasar?
Dost thou not bring me letters from the friar?
How doth my lady? Is my father well?
How fares my Juliet? That I ask again,
For nothing can be ill if she be well.

BALTHASAR:
Then she is well, and nothing can be ill.
Her body sleeps in Capel’s monument,
And her immortal part with angels lives.
I saw her laid low in her kindred’s vault
And presently took post to tell it you.
O, pardon me for bringing these ill news,
Since you did leave it for my office, sir.

ROMEO:
Is it e’en so? Then I defy you, stars!
But soft! What SMS through yonder RAZR breaks?

SMS ON ROMEO’S PHONE:
i’m ok — poison fake
