It’s been a while since I did a book tag on here and I decided that I was too lazy to write a proper blog post with thoughtful insights and a discussion-worthy topic so tag time it is!
I’ve been eyeing the Stranger Things book tag for a while now, and I was late to the Stranger Things train so I’m finally doing it!
This tag was originally created by A Running Commentary, which I don’t have a link to, but you’ve been given credit. The graphics I’ll be using were designed and put together by Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile – which is also where I first saw this tag.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. As you guys already know, I was let down by this book, mainly because I was confused about what was happening most of the time. The format was my main issue. But I was intrigued by the ending.
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Especially as a female, I would not want to live in this world. They’re definitely not treated well at all. Basically if you’re not royalty, you have a bad life. Even if you are royalty you have a bad life. There’s really no way to win, even if you’re sitting on the Iron Throne.
I don’t think I own any damaged books… Instead I’ll choose a character that’s somewhat damaged, but I still love to pieces. That character would have to be Keiko from Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. She’s had to deal with a lot of outer and inner turmoil but I love her character so much.
Not a trilogy, but The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. I love this series so much, as you guys know. I wanted to re-read it the second I put the last book down and have been missing it ever since.
I would definitely not want to face the Grievers from The Maze Runner by James Dashner. They are absolutely terrifying (especially in the movie). No thanks. I’ll just live the rest of my days in the maze alone.
Hmm… a lot of villains are like this, but I’d have to choose President Coin and Snow from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. They were both masters at deception and twisted their words to make it seem like they had your best interests at heart but – nope!
*haha jokes on you, she actually got on my nerves quite a bit
My most recent read, actually, Blind Acceptance by Sandra Pimental. I wasn’t really expecting to like this book much at all but I ended up loving it!
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. Kinda in the title! Weep is a weird little town but I actually really adore it. I wish it was explored more in the book – hopefully we’ll get more in the sequel.
I don’t know who has and hasn’t done this tag, or who has or hasn’t watched Stranger Things so I’ll just tag some random people. Feel free to do the tag if I haven’t tagged you 🙂
Do you watch Stranger Things? Who’s your favorite character? What’s a book beast that terrifies you like the Demogorgon?
