Hello friends!!!! I am back again revisiting a super old blog post of mine, this time it’s a book tag that I took part in way back in 2021, a lot has changed since then so I thought I’d redo it 🙂
Here is the original post link (the-ultimate-recommendations-book-tag), though I’ll be posting my old responses vs my new ones below too!
Recommend a book from your favourite genre.
OG answer – The Shining, Salem’s Lot, or Pet Sematary.
2023 recs – Anybody Home? by Michael J Seidlinger and Witch 13 by Patrick R Delaney are two of my FAVES from the last 18 months.
Recommend a short book.
OG answer – Psychosis by Matt Dymerski
2023 recs – not so much a short book but a book full of short stories… 13 Tales To Give You Night Terrors by multiple authors.
Recommend a book to screen adaptation.
OG answer – Gone Girl.
2023 recs – Ahh I’m not really one for watching TV or film adaptations of books because I usually just get frustrated when they miss bits out!
Recommend a book out of your comfort zone.
OG answer – The Scam List by Kurt Dinan.
2023 recs – The Decagon House Murders by Yukito Ayatsuji.
Recommend a book series.
OG answer – The Hannibal series.
2023 recs – The Hunger Games and Twilight series (I will reread these every year until I DIE).
Recommend a standalone.
OG answer – The Pastel Effect by Arly Carmack.
2023 recs – The Unbalanced Equation by H L Macfarlane.
Recommend a book you don’t talk enough about.
OG answer – The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas.
2023 recs – The House Fire by Rosie Walker, this absolutely rocked my world and I should rave about it more.
Recommend your staple book.
I don’t really have a staple book, if I like something then I’ll recommend it!
My OG and 2023 answer are still the same, sorry 😦
Recommend books that got you into reading.
OG answer – The Goosebumps series.
2023 answer – still the Goosebumps series, although I do credit Twilight for rekindling my love of reading as a teenager so.
And there you have my updated 2023 answers! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and keep your eye open for me judging and redoing more of my old posts!
Until next time, Em xxx
