Hello everyone! Can you believe that it’s almost the second week of March already? I will be going back to work tomorrow after taking a few days off. I think I’ll also get busy in the next couple of weeks but no fear, I already have posts lined up 🙂
Anyway, today I’m participating in a bookish tag I’ve seen over at Drizzle & Hurricane Books blog. It looked super fun but the main reason I want to do this is because I am a huge fan of the amazing-talented-funny-smart-gorgeous Taylor Swift herself. I’ve loved her for as long as I could remember. And the other reason, obviously, is it involves books! I’ve never participated in a bookish tag before so I thought this is the perfect way to start off.
First things first! Here are the guidelines for this tag if you want to participate.
- Link back to the creator (Olivia, Purely Olivia)
- Answer as many or as few of the questions as you’d like.
- Feel free to use any of the graphics in the original post.
- Tag however many people you’d like at the end!
You’re Not Sorry: a book that unapologetically broke your heart
I’ll never forget the nights I’ve spent when the Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare had me crying. It was a good kind of crying though.
Back To December: a book you still think about even after you finished
In this question, I picked two of the books that has made a huge impact on my life. It’s Coraline by Neil Gaiman and The Hobbit by J.R. Tolkien. These books are so precious to me as they greatly influenced my perception of life.
If This Was A Movie: a book you really want to become a movie
Personally, I don’t always like it when a favorite book of mine or just a book I enjoyed is getting adapted into a movie or a tv series. I worry all the time regardless if they hire a top actor or an actress to star in it. We all know that more or less, they don’t give enough justice to our precious babies. However, just to answer this question, I’d say Graceling by Kristin Cashore. If they do it right, it would certainly be a hit!
Gorgeous: a book with the most beautiful cover
Is this a trick question? LOL. One of the most difficult questions to answer! How can I pick just one or two? There are tons of them! In my bookshelf though, I’d say Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.
Never Grow Up:a book that gives you childhood nostalgia
This is obviously a no-brainer question. The wonderful Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. They keep me young! I can read those books over and over again and never get bored. I’d also like to make another pick and that is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I love the book and the movie adaption is a masterpeice!
Style: a classic that will never get old
Honestly, I don’t read many classics. I’ve only a handful of them. My all-time favorite though is The Hobbit. I can’t stress enough how much I adore this book.
End Game: a book with a romance you love
The quirky romance in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn is one of my favorites.
I Knew You Were Trouble: a book you couldn’t help but become obsessed with
For this one, I can’t just pick one book. I’m perpetually obsessed with The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. Maybe her other books aren’t so good, but those three books are phenomenal! I had the most amazing time reading (and re-reading) them. Another easy pick is Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. Although, I still need to get a copy of the third book I know in my heart that I’m going to love it just the same.
So, that’s it! It’s been fun answering these questions!
