I’m back with another book tag, which are some of my favorite posts to create! AND, most importantly, I was tagged for this by the lovely Meghan from Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations and Reviews. Go check her out!
Actions Speak Loud Than Words
A Book That Wasn’t Or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie
I’m gonna have to go with The Princess Bride on this one. Not only is this my favorite movie of all time, but it follows the book so excellently, but without some of the additional details that aren’t 100% necessary to the story.
The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side
A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story
I’m gonna go with God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut because it’s a riches to rags story (kinda). I only say this because the main character, Eliot Rosewater, ignores his wealth and becomes a semi-psychotic philanthropist.
The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree
A Parent-Child Relationship That You Love
I really loved reading about the parent child relationship that developed in Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch. Lina opening herself up to Henry and Howard giving himself to Lina as her father was so sweet.
You Can’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover
A Great Book That Needs a Better Cover
I’m not a huge fan of the covers for the Winner’s Curse Trilogy by Marie Rutkowski. And honestly, I think the new covers are even worse. I love these books though and think they could benefit from a not so cheesy looking cover.
You Can’t Please Everyone
A Book You Hate That Everyone Loves
I’ve talked about this before, but On the Road by Jack Kerouac annoys the ever-living shit out of me. The characters are insufferable and didn’t grow throughout the story. I felt like this story was meant to give college boys an excuse to be inconsiderate assholes.
What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger
What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It
Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut. This story had me dead. It also just made me reflect on who I am as a person, and how I present myself. But it’s also about the war and how stressful and confusing situations can affect people.
Love is Blind
A Book With A Disabled Character Or Actual Blind Love
The best answer for this to me is All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer. This story is incredibly beautiful, and one of the main characters is blind.
Ignorance is Bliss
A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It
This is hard!! But I would have to say Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. This book was definitely cringy but I flew through it. I had such a fun time reading this book and hope to continue this series soon.
There is No Time Like the Present
What Is Your Favourite Contemporary Book?
Every book by Fredrik Backman and every book by Celeste Ng
Better Safe Than Sorry
A Book You Don’t Want To Read In Case It’s Bad
I’m a bit nervous to read Weight of Feathers by Anna Marie McLemore. I like this author and I own this book, but I’ve been putting it off because I’m afraid it’s not good.
