Hi book peeps! It’s book tag day again and this time I’m taking part in the meme book tag! This one was created by booktuber Saajid of Books are My Social Life.
CRYING KIM KARDASHIAN: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
The first one that springs to mind is Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer. I sobbed while reading the dedications so there was no hope for me, let’s be honest…
SALT BAE: A BOOK THAT NEEDED A LITTLE SOMETHING MORE
Me and Mr Jones by Lucy Diamond. You can read my full review here, but my main issue was the epilogue, it would have been nice to just have that lil bit extra.
GUY THINKING: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU THINK
For this one, I’m going to pick She Kills Me by Jennifer Wright. It’s a non-fic book about female serial killers, and it definitely made me think about my knowledge base and then things that I wanted to research after I’d finished reading!
CONFUSED GUY: A BOOK WHOSE HYPE YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I’ve tried to read this multiple times, but I just never understood the hype around it when it first came out and I certainly don’t now I’m older.
EVIL PATRICK: A GUILTY PLEASURE READ (WHATEVER YOU CONSIDER GUILTY PLEASURE TO MEAN)
I don’t really have a guilty pleasure book, I’m quite open about what I read and enjoy.
MERYL STREEP: A BOOK THAT YOU’RE ALWAYS HYPING UP
I literally will hype up SOOOOO many books, it’s hard to pick just one. I think though this year, the one that’s made it onto a lot of lists is The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack, it was so good.
SUCCESSFUL BABY: A BOOK (WHETHER YOU LIKED IT OR NOT) THAT YOU FELT ACCOMPLISHED AFTER READING
I really felt accomplished when I finished reading The Stranger by Albert Camus. I did enjoy it, but my god, it was a mind fuck and I felt so proud of myself for actually finishing it and having some understanding of what I’d just read haha.
PENNYWISE: A BOOK WITH A PROMISING CONCEPT/A BOOK THAT YOU HAD HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR BUT ULTIMATELY LET YOU DOWN
I’m going to go with IT by Stephen King for this one. I’ve never actually finished it because I had super high expectations but I felt really let down and underwhelmed when I started reading it.
HEADPHONES GUY: AN AUDIOBOOK THAT YOU ENJOYED
I don’t think I’ve ever listened to an audiobook so I’ve not got an answer for this one 😦
DISTRACTED GUY: TWO BOOKS: ONE YOU’VE BEEN NEGLECTING ON YOUR TBR FOR A LONG TIME AND A NEW ONE THAT’S DISTRACTING YOU/PIQUING YOUR INTEREST
Oh god, the one off my TBR is The Green Mile by Stephen King, it has to have been on there for like 7 or 8 years now! The newest one that’s catching my eye is Lore by Alexandra Bracken.
CASH ME OUTSIDE GIRL: A BOOK THAT TRIED TO BE SOMETHING THAT IT’S NOT (PRETENTIOUS, DIDN’T LIVE UP TO WHAT IT WAS MARKETED AS, ETC.)
The first one that springs to mind is The Haunted by Nicki Valentine, it was meant to be scary and atmospheric and full of creeps and chills and it fell SO FLAT.
DOG IN FIRE: HOW MANY UNREAD BOOKS DO YOU OWN?
Thanks to my handy TBR list I have easily calculated that I have 115 unread books that I own!
As always, if you want to take part consider yourself tagged!
Until next time, Em xxx
