A Game of Origami Storytelling (and what it reveals about you!)

Hello my lovelies,

For today’s post I’ve decided to be the narrator for once and come up with this storytelling vibe game that’s just for pure fun. The questions and the choices attached are all from my imaginative prone mind and shouldn’t be considered a true reflection on any aspect of you or your personality.

Inspiration for this post hit as I was googling how to recreate the fortune teller origami game. Essentially the vague style of the question should allow some freedom to craft your own unique answer. Each answer gets a book rec because this is still a book blog after all.

Bonus! There is a tutorial link for each origami shape if you’re feeling particularly crafty.

Now the question is

You have a plain piece of paper, if you can fold it into any origami shape, what would that shape be?

Swan

You are sharper than you look, most would consider you fragile at first. You have a high sense of worth.

Book Choice: A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos

Swans can be extremely fierce when being put in strenuous circumstances, I think about the quote “The strongest steel is forged by the fires of hell”.

To me Ophelia from A Winter’s Promise reflects that accurately. She looks completely harmless but we learn just how strong this woman can be when she’s left to fend for herself in a terrifying foreign world.

Heart

You’re a hopeless romantic, a person who gives and loves giving.

Book Choice: For the Love of Friends by Sarah Goodman Confino

To wear your heart on your sleeve is something very courageous. Few can be vulnerable like that.

In being equally just as selfless, Sarah in For the Love of Friends, tries her best to be the perfect bridesmaid in each of her loved ones’ fairytale love stories. But will anyone claim her open heart? And can you run out of love to give?

Boat

You’re an adventurer with a rebellious spirit. You crave to carve your own path.

Book Choice: Great Circle by Maggie S

Like a captain among the seas, you are not afraid to grab the helm and wither through the storms. As long as you get to chart your own course in life.

The two women in this book are brave, bold, smart, and nothing less than legendary. Both decide to change the narratives of their own lives in this multi-city, multi-timeline novel.

Bird

You have your head in the clouds, often described as a “daydreamer” you have the tendency to escape from your problems

Book Choice: Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

I can imagine your brain to be a mesh of pastel colored clouds, warm sunshine, and golden rays. At least that’s what a daydream looks to me.

Visuals of Ghibli’s movie spring up to my mind, no matter how long it has been there is nothing dreamier than Howl’s Moving Castle.

Pyramid

You prioritize stability and generally have realistic perspectives on life. You find comfort in things not changing too much.

Book Choice: The Missing Treasures of Amy Ashton by Eleanor Ray

This doesn’t mean that you’re boring by the way. There is a satisfaction knowing you have an organised routine and let’s be honest you’re probably the least crushed by life’s disappointments.

Amy is a reclusive lover of organization and keeping things the way they are. But new friendships provoke the need to reinvent Amy’s life. Can she though?

Paper Airplane

You’re a classic. You like the basics and there’s nothing wrong with that! Nostalgia is a mood you know extremely well.

Book Choice: Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne

Each one has their own definition of what is a “classic“. To me it is a piece of classic literature that I’ve been exposed to as a child and continue to cherish to this day. It has the tendency to invoke fond memories of childhood.

To me that book is Winnie the Pooh.

Flower

You appreciate the beauty in things. To you pleasing visuals satisfy you so much. Though some may claim that you’re too much of a “perfectionist”.

Book Choice: A Dress of for the Wicked by Autumn Krause

I find these type of people to have more of a “feminine energy” and have an inclination to the fine arts that include fashion, painting, flower arrangements, and home styling.

Naturally I picked a book whose premise is about a prestigious high fashion competition (but make it edgier).

Fox

You definitely think outside the box and have a tendency to surprise people that way!

Book Choice: Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen

You are definitely sly and cheeky. Perhaps you were nicknamed “Class Clown” or skipped a lesson (or two). And you always seem to get out of trouble in the nick of time…

Seen as a prophet and liar, this foxy duality of Violet puts her in the center of a deadly court plot and a forbidden romance. Let’s hope she’s cunning enough to not get caught in the wolf’s jaws.

Butterfly

You take a keen interest in details that no one else picks up on, and get satisfied by perfect symmetry.

Book Choice: If You Could See the Sun by Ann Liang

As they say “the devil is in the details” and you delight in this. Also butterflies can easily blend in their surroundings, making them hidden but not quite so.

Questioning her own role in “The Butterfly Effect”, Alice literately turns invisible and attempts to expose the scandalous secrets of her ultra rich classmates. But how far is too far?


Which shape did you choose!?

As always follow to not miss the latest!
