Annnnddd, we’re back! With, you guessed it, another tag. We know, we know, we just did a tag last week, but we have been blessed by so many of our new followers with quite a few tags recently, so here we are, returning the favor, by posting yet another SUPER FUN book tag!
Check out both of their blogs if you haven’t before; they are both wonderful human beings and we just adore their content so, pretty please with sugar on top, take a look at their posts if you haven’t read them before you leave this post!
Now, that we have gotten our obsession with these two wonderful ladies out the of the way, let’s get started on this tag, shall we?
A book that left your head spinning in circles
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. We feel like for most of this book, the first time we read it that is, we had no idea what was going on or what was going to happen. We were just as lost as the main character Mara Dyer, with as little to go off of on what was happening as she had. It is a crazy book, one we love, but it definitely takes some concentration to try and figure out, just like Mara Dyer, what is real, and what is just a hallucination.
A book you think has beautiful written expression
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. We are pretty sure most people would agree with us on this one, but Laini Taylor’s writing in this series is some of the most beautiful language written in the YA genre, in any genre really. She definitely has a gift with words. Not to mention we cannot wait for her new release, Strange the Dreamer, coming out at the end of this month! *jumps up and down in excitement*
Your favorite scientifically minded character from a book or film
Sydney Sage from the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. This may just be because we are reading this right now, so she is fresh in our mind, but she is the perfect logic-minded, female lead. We LOVE her and all of her scientific smarts (and just smarts in general).
Your favorite literary couple
For this we are going to go for the all-time favorite—Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. How could you not pick them? They are the mother of all literary couples! The quintessential couple of all things literary! At least we think so…
Your favorite book/series/film character
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. We are pretty darn sure that a lot of you guys will relate to this choice too. We just love her so much because she is almost EXACTLY like us. As the title already points out, she is a fangirl and we are also, obviously, big fangirls. So, just on that level we already relate to Cath so much, but we can also relate to her crazy anxieties and introverted personality as well. She is just a great character, one we love love love so much!
Your favorite foreign book/film/program
We don’t know if this technically counts, but we would say the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling since, although written in English, it is technically from the United Kingdom, thus making it a foreign book series to us… Uhh who are we kidding, we don’t even care if it counts or not! It’s Harry Potter, nothing tops that.
Have you ever judged a book by its cover, even if you weren’t meant to?
This will probably come as a pretty obvious answer to any of you who have been following our blog for a while, but we’ll fill you guys in on our deepest, darkest secret anyway—yes, of course, we have judged a book by its cover! We’re pretty sure anyone who answers this question any differently is lying! On top of this, we think cover art is an equally important component to the writing in any book. And, many times, a good cover, which reflects the contents of the book and the hard work of the designer who created it, is a key indicator on whether or not a book is worth reading. If you want to hear more on why we think cover art is so important then you can check out some of our posts from our on-going Cover Love series we have on this blog! We’d love to hear about some book covers you love or some cover buys that you have made in the past!
The last historical book you read
We are going with this meaning the last historical fiction book we read. Now, we’re not huge readers of the historical fiction genre, but the most recent historical book we read was Ireland by Frank Delaney and we really loved it! It’s a beautiful tale that brings life to the rich storytelling history Ireland is known for. It was so atmospheric, and the stories weaved throughout were so whimsical and interesting—just what you would expect from some Irish tales!
A literary destination you would really like to visit (real of fictional)
Hogwarts? Narnia? Middle Earth? Alicante? You seriously want us to choose? Well, we refuse. There are so many destinations that we just love, the ones already listed representing only a select few. But really, if we’re being honest, and this was a kind of if-you-were-stuck-on-an-island-alone-and-you-could-only-bring-one-thing type of question and we really had to decide, we would pick Hogwarts and the entire wizarding world of Harry Potter. Like, how could you not want to go to Hogwarts and learn magic?
A book that you think has a lot of overdramatic hype
We don’t really have one for this one. If a book doesn’t interest us, we just kind of tune it out, so we cant really think of any books that we think get too much hype. What do you guys think about this question? Maybe you will bring up one that we agree with but hadn’t thought of!
Who We’re Tagging
Once again and as always you guys, if you are tagged, don’t feel obligated to do this post. However, we would really love to see your guys’ answers. So, likewise, if you aren’t tagged, don’t let that stop you from making a post, we would love to see your answers too!
What do you guys think of our answers/choices? Do you agree or disagree with any of them? Let us know in the comments OR make your own post for us to check out!
