It’s no secret that I’m a K-Pop fan. A lot of y’all might not have known that if you’ve missed a few of my posts, but if you follow me on Twitter, you can’t go a day without me mentioning K-Pop at least once.
I decided that I’d create this K-Pop tag because a) I love K-Pop (duh!) and b) I love book tags (another duh!) I also haven’t created a book tag in quite some time, so here I am.
I’m admittedly so excited for this you have no idea. And along with the artist(s) I mention I’m also including a favorite music video from them (if I’m a fan and have seen most of their videos) because I want to use this chance I have to spread as much k-pop love as I possibly can.
I also don’t know if there’s already a K-Pop Book Tag out there (if there is, copying that isn’t intentional I promise).
– Credit the creator of this tag The Book Prophet and link back to her original post
– Thank the person that tagged you
– Answer all of the questions to the best of your abilities
– Tag as many people as you’d like 🙂 (I mean, you were going to do that anyway)
– Have fun!
BTS – A Book Everyone Knows About
Harry Potter would be the given answer, but I’ll instead go with A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. This series is EVERYWHERE, there’s no escape from it.
EXO – Favorite Companion Novel
I actually haven’t read any companion novels, but I have read Starflight by Melissa Landers, which is the first in a duology. The second book follows a different point of view than the first one too so it’s more of a companion than a second book.
NU’EST – A Book/Series/Author That Doesn’t Get the Attention You Think it Deserves
My answer for the last question, actually, but I’ll pick another book. Instead I’ll go with Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley. This book is so underrated I don’t know why so many people are sleeping on it. Read it now if you haven’t!!
ASTRO – A Book That Gave You a Happy Feeling When Reading
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. From the very first sentence I knew that this book would bring me a lot of laughter and joy.
MONSTA X – A Book Containing a Diverse Set of Characters
I think I know what everyone else is going to choose for this one, but I haven’t yet read that book so I can’t choose it haha. I’m choosing Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor for this. Although the side characters that Lazlo traveled with weren’t a huge part of the book like I wish they were, they were all a unique band of characters that I’m really hoping we’ll get to see more of in the sequel.
A.C.E – A Favorite Recent Release
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. Maybe it’s partly due to it getting me out of my reading slump, but this book is one of my favorite reads of 2017.
BLACKPINK – A Book That Sticks Out From The Rest Of It’s Genre
I’m choosing The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. Even if you aren’t a fan of Historical Fiction, you’ll surely fall in love with this book. It’s a diverse Historical Fiction that’s an adventure and coming-of-age story. It’s much different than other Historical Fiction books I’ve read.
SEVENTEEN – A Book With Multiple POVs
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. I was literally just scrolling through my Goodreads shelf and this is the first book with multiple POV I came across. I think it was done exceptionally well, especially for her first novel.
BIGBANG – A Modern Classic
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I think this technically counts as a classic. I’m including it anyway. I really loved this book (and the movie) and it’s definitely a modern classic.
SISTAR – Series You Wish Never Ended
I’d have to say The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordon. I still can’t believe it’s only a trilogy. I wanted so much more from this series and then it just ended. It wrapped up nicely at the end from what I remember but I was so sad when I found out there wasn’t going to be any more books.
RAIN – Favorite Stand-Alone
I was going to say Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe BUT it’s getting a sequel so that won’t really count. Instead I’m going with The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. My love for this book is never dying and I’ve only read it once. I vaguely remember the actual events in this book but I do remember loving every second of it.
I’m going to tag every K-Pop loving blogger friend I can think of
Flavia the Bibliophile | The Book Portal | Pursuit of Wonderland | Erucchii’s Books and Recs | What Makes a Great Book | Books For Thought | The Crazy Reader | Daydreaming Books | Perspective of a Writer | Bookish Confessions | Lindsey Reads
As always, if I tagged you, you aren’t in any way obligated to complete said tag and if I didn’t tag you, feel free to do the tag anyways! It’s lots of fun, I promise.
Are you a K-Pop fan? Who’s your favorite group and bias? Did you even know what K-Pop was before this post? If not, do you think you’d be interested in it?
