The Rules

  1. Create your own new post and call it “Tag: This-Is-My-Truth-Now” and be sure to include in your tags the words — without quotes — “ThisIsMyTruthNow Tag”
  2. Include these rules when you copy/paste to your own post.
  3. Be sure to thank the person that tagged you and include their responses at the bottom of your post, so someone can get to know them too. Tell everyone something interesting about the person who tagged you.
  4. Include a link to my original post mentioning this blog so we can see how many people choose to play along. Link to cut/paste is:  ThisIsMyTruthNow
  5. Choose 12 bloggers to tag and include a link to their latest post, so others can check them out and meet new people.
  6. Answer all 12 questions in The Challenge Questions section, but replace the 12th question with your own new one around telling the truth or revealing something interesting about yourself — you can leave the existing if you can’t think of something.
  7. Be sure to copy/paste the “Truth or Dare” section at the end of this post. It’s important to the challenge — so you better carefully read it!
  8. If you’ve haven’t been tagged, but you want to play along, you can totally jump on in and post responses to the tag on your blog.



Answer the challenge questions as truthful as possible!

QUESTION 1You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you. When you arrive, your favorite author is having dinner by himself or herself and asks you to sit with them, before you even see your friends or they see you. You have two choices: (1) You can sit with the author but can’t tell your friends that you’ve abandoned them for three hours, or (2) Meet your friends and lose the only chance you’ll ever have to talk with the author. Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication to your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why.

QUESTION 2You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?

QUESTION 3: If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?

QUESTION 4What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?

QUESTION 5If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?

QUESTION 6If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?

QUESTION 7It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.

QUESTION 8If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read, but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it?  If so, explain the who and why.

QUESTION 9If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?

QUESTION 10Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).

QUESTION 11Your favorite character (under 18) needs a place to stay for 3 months and asks you if (s)he could stay in your spare room (yes, you have one for the sake of this question). Who is it and what is the reason (s)he needs to stay with you?

QUESTION 12What are qualities that a favorite character of yours has that you wish you had as well? What character, what qualities and why? Pick a book you’ve read this year (you can change this question when added to your blog, but please let me know your answer to this question in the comments below)




If you choose not to accept the tag, you have to follow through on whatever dare the person who tags you chooses.

My dare was to write a Haiku poem about a book I hated.

I chose the dare. It takes a lot for me to hate a book and I don’t even like using the word, but one book stands out and I nearly hated it- It’s titled, The Happiest Mommy You Know. I’m not an author and don’t like book bashing, but I simply didn’t like this book. I understood her point, but it got out of hand in my opinion. I won’t get into that now. If you’re interested, you can see my review for it HERE.


Here’s my poem…

 My children come first.
Really ♡ my yoga pants-
Happy family…

You can answer the 12 questions above

Or, you can do the dare…

I’m going to keep the dare the same. If you refuse the tag, you have to write a Haiku about a book you hated.

Thanks for reading! Please link back if you can so I can read your answers. 🙂

  1. Good morning! How are you doing? I love that you chose the dare. Only the second person I’ve see do that.

    Very cute haiku. It matched so many things I know about you. And I’m surprised you didn’t care for a book; you always find something good in it. Sounds like this just wasn’t done in the best way possible. But as I always see from you, the review is delivered in a very fair manner. Kudos!

    Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks for the tag Jenn, it’s a fun one! Jay tagged me for it the beginning of June, so I’ve done it already 😉 I didn’t take hisdare then, so I answered all the questions haha…I think the dare then was reread your least favorite book but could be wrong. You were brave to do the dare, and I loved your haiku! I love to read poetry, but writing it’s another thing 😂 A sonnet might be more my speed!

    1. I knew that I tagged some people that have already done this, sorry about that! I do remember his dare and I believe that was it. I couldn’t do it! LOL.

      Thanks so much for your kind comments. The Haiku was fun. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far. Hugs ❤


      1. Lol, np!! I thought about doing the dare in case I liked my least favorite book better the 2nd time around but couldn’t think of the book lol. And I thought the questions were pretty cool, so I answered them 😊 I actually think it was the 1st tag ever on my blog 💗❤💗

    Eyy there honey bunny!~ Thanks for tagging me – yet another challenging tag. Lol – your Haiku is PRICELESS! ❤ LOVE. Once upon a time I used to do Vinyasa Flow yoga but I've been wayyyy too lazy lately. *bleh*

    1. Thanks, Delphine! This is definitely an interesting tag. I hope you enjoy it. The Haiku was fun for sure. I’m not familiar with that type of yoga and can’t wait to look it up. I mainly do Qigong and some light yoga. I have to be in the mood to do it, lol! ❤ Chat soon!
