Water. Earth. Fire. Air. I’ve heard stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Avatar Blogger kept balance between the Water Critics, Earth Reviewers, Fire Writers, and Air Readers. But that all changed when the Fire Writers attacked.
Only the Avatar Blogger, master of all four blogging elements could stop the ruthless Fire Writers. But when the world needed them the most, they vanished. A hundred years have passed, and the Fire Writers are nearing victory in the war.
Some people believe that the Avatar Blogger was never reborn into the Air Readers, and that the cycle is broken. But I haven’t lost hope. I still believe that somehow, the Avatar Blogger will return to save the book world!
How to become the Avatar Blogger:
- To become the Avatar Blogger and save the book world from the Fire Writer Lord, the Avatar Blogger must master all four elements.
- To master an element, a blogger must be tagged in one of the four following tags: Book of Water, Book of Earth, Book of Fire, Book of Air.
- Once a blogger has posted all four tags to their page, they can message the Order of the White Lotus (@onmybookshelff) on twitter to receive the Avatar Blogger Award. (Not first come first serve. Everyone can get the award!)
Rules of this Tag:
- Thank whomever tagged you
- Callback to the creator of the tag: Andrew @ On My Bookshelf
- Answer the 7 questions below
- Help other potential Avatar Bloggers by tagging 5 bloggers.
Of all the nations in the Avatar world, the Earth Kingdom is the largest in size.
What are your three largest books?
Unsurprisingly, the three Stormlight Archives books are my longest three books. They’re all over 1,000 pages, and I expect the fourth one to be up there when it finally comes out too! Check out my list of my 10 Longest Books.
Ba Sing Se, the capital of the Earth Kingdom, has absolutely beautiful walls that have stood the test of time.
What book would you leave buried in a time capsule, to be opened by someone you don’t know 30 years from now?
OOH good question Andrew, this is actually really tough. I think I would have to go with a tried and true series that I will forever hold in my heart; the Redwall Series. I think they are under appreciated, in my bookish world at least, and they were a major part of turning me into the reader that I am today. I think people even 30 years from now can appreciate their values.
Citizens of the Earth Reviewers are recognized by their green attire.
Share some of your books that have a green cover.
I actually own very few mostly green book covers, but here are some with at least a splash of green!
Though many people of the Earth Reviewers live in large cities, a lot of its citizens are migratory people.
What book did you DNF the quickest, and why did you give up on it?
I’ve never actually DNF’d a book before. I have a self rule that if I start a book, movie, or TV season, I have to finish it. I can always find something that I like about it. If theres a second book, season or movie, I might not continue with them, but I will always finish the ones I started watching or reading.
Any Avatar or Earth Reviewer would be honored to be taught by Toph, the creator of metal bending, and close friend to Avatar Aang.
Which author, dead or alive, would you love to sit down with for a meal?
I think I would pick Robert Jordan. He is the author of one of my top two book series; The Wheel of Time, and seeing as he has passed away, I would love to just fanboy over how amazing his world is and how much it has inspired me as a hopeful future writer.
Earth Reviewing relies on standing strong and outlasting your opponent, looking for the perfect moment to strike.
What is one book you had on your TBR on too long, and you wish you had read sooner?
Hands down, Priory of the Orange Tree. I bought it on a whim because I saw people gushing over it on Twitter, but always put it to the back of my TBR pile. I’m mad at myself for doing that because I would definitely consider it one of my top 10 favourite books right now, and Samantha Shannon is one of my favourite authors.
Iroh, a friend to the Avatar and one of the wisest men you’ll meet referred to the Earth as the element of substance.
If you were skilled at making one thing, whether its artsy, music related, or more home improvement focused, what would it be?
I would really like to be good at making things out of wood. You know, desks, chairs, tables, etc. I just think there is a hidden beauty there that is so simple, and practical, but heavily under appreciated.
If you have made it this far, then you have mastered the element of Earth, bringing you one step closer to becoming the Avatar Blogger. Good luck to you in your training.
