Hello friends, I’m here again with another book tag, I’m trying to do one per month to bring a lil bit of variety to my blog, so I hope you enjoy reading my take on the ultimate recommendations book tag.
If you would like to take part in this tag then please consider yourself tagged!
Recommend a book from your favourite genre.
Okay so my fave genre is definitely horror/thriller, so I would have to recommend The Shining, or Salem’s Lot, or Pet Sematary, in their own right they are all excellent books and I can’t recommend them enough. I speak highly of most King books but these are just *chefs kiss*
Recommend a short book.
One that I’ve read recently and really loved was Psychosis by Matt Dymerski. It’s a collection of short horror stories and they all really packed a punch in different ways. It was different to anything I’d read before…
Recommend a book to screen adaptation.
Gone Girl. I actually watched the film of this before I read the book, but they both still were absolutely brilliant.
Recommend a book out of your comfort zone.
This was a really hard one as I only usually read books within my comfort zone, but I’ve decided on The Scam List by Kurt Dinan. It was so far out of my usual reads but I absolutely loved it! You can read my review here.
Recommend a book series.
If you haven’t already you should read the Hannibal series, it’s honestly such a brilliant read and one of my favourite ever series.
Recommend a standalone.
Based on my recent reads I would definitely recommend The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack. I will shout about this book from the rooftops I think it’s my favourite read of the year.
Recommend a book you don’t talk enough about.
Definitely The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas. I wish more people that I know or interact with had read this book because I would just love to talk about it with someone! It was such a thought provoking read and I need to discuss it with someone.
Recommend your staple book.
I don’t really have a staple book, if I like something then I’ll recommend it!
Recommend books that got you into reading.
This would be the Goosebumps series, I used to consume these at a crazy rate when I was younger and they definitely encouraged my love of reading when I was younger. I also have to say thanks to Roald Dahl because his books were also a huge influence on me as a child.
Until next time, Em xxx
