In honor of the second season of stranger things and my plan to binge the first 4 episodes of it, I thought I would do this tag. I have seen it floating around Booktube lately and it was created by pickleheartsbooks on booktube. Be sure to check her video out to get a list of the questions , STRANGER THINGS BOOK TAG (ORIGINAL).
Let’s do this!
- Benny: a character you wish you had more from:
Manon! From the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I would read a book based solely on her. She is just so feisty and bad ass and just so cool! I look forward to her chapters in the books and I just want more.
2. Steve Harrington: a popular book you still haven’t read:
A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab, I feel like everyone gushes about how amazing this book is and I own it which is just ridiculous! Why haven’t I read this yet? Major readers guilt for this one.
3. Barb: an unpopular book that you think needs more love:
This book isn’t unpopular but I just think it gets as much attention as I think it should and that is A List of Cages by Robin Roe. I went through a roller-coaster of emotions while reading this book and I loved every second of it. It is just a beautiful story that has such an amazing message and it is beautifully written. I just wish everyone would read this and love it like I do.
4. The Upside Down: a book that scared me:
Lets get one thing straight, I don’t read scary book. I have a very dark imagination, so the stuff I conjure up when I read a scary book is not fit for anyone’s eyes, so I just avoid this. But the most battle scenes during any Sarah J. Maas books, give me heart palpitations and I fear for everyone’s life, so that is about as scary as I get.
5. Eleven: a book so good it was like is was controlling you to keep reading it:
I devoured The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi in one sitting, and I loved every moment of it. The characters, the writing style, the magic system, everything! Was amazing, highly recommend it!
6. Dustin: a book with a good comic relief character:
I have been sitting here for a few minutes trying to pick a book and character for this, why is this so hard! I feel like this should be easier than it is…
Rhysand! From ACOTAR! Why didn’t I think of him, for shame! His dark and naughty humor gives me life, his lines during a scene at the end of ACOWAR- if you read the book and know what I am talking about- cracked me up so much. It was comic relief in it’s truest form/
7. Nancy: a book with good character development:
I dare you to name a character this series that wasn’t developed, The Throne of Glass series is just jammed packed with character who have so far gone through their own personal development and I love every single one of them.
8. Hopper: a book series that I am determined to finish:
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan, I have been meaning to get to this series for a while now and I finally picked it up a few months ago and I have read book 1 and 2. My goal is to finish this series before the end of the year, but we will see how it goes, here’s hoping.
9. Mike: my favourite friendship:
100%, Adam and Julian. Their friendship is so heartwarming and adorable.
10. Joyce: a book you feel crazy for hating that everyone seems to love:
And I Darken by Kiersten White, where do I even begin with this one. I had such high hopes going in to this book because everyone was hyping it up and I was sorely dissapointed. I found the plot to be boring, the character to be weak and annoying and it was a really slow read and it was too descriptive to the point that I actually starting skimming descriptions because I mean, I get it, the hill is green, we can move on with our lives now.
Phew… so if you couldn’t telly by my rant, I really don’t like this novel.
11. Jonathan: a book that was better than you thought it would be:
Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johanssen. I went into this book not knowing much about it but also not really expecting much because I hadn’t heard of it so I figured it wasn’t that popular and therefore it can’t be that good. Boy! was I wrong. Kelsea as a main character is so strong and badass. The plot is intriguing and keeps on the edge of your seat. It is well paced and I just loved it 🙂
12. Basically every episode: a book that gave you goosebumps:
For this I will have to go with Fallen by Karen Slaughter, there were some scenes of torture that just gave me chills, I just, I can’t deal with torture scenes, especially ones that are well described, ugh.
And that is all, I had so much fun doing this tag because I had to take time and really think of my answers, which doesn’t honestly happen very often when I do tags.
Do you agree or disagree with some of my choices? Let me know, I would love to hear from you 🙂
I hope you guys have had an amazing start to your week and I will see you in the next post.
Tootles, Gaby 🙂
