I love that Sara @THE BIBLIOPHAGIST always tags me in so many great things. But this one, oh dear… this one is the cherry on top of it all. I absolutely loved being a kid in the 90’s and truth be told, I don’t think I ever got over it. Thank you for letting me spend some time reminiscing and enjoy it all again, Sara ❤
- Link back to the creator The Literary Phoenix to show her some love as a thank you!
- Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s. Tag people you think would have fun with this!
- Have fun getting all nostalgic!
Pokemon: Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
The author you need every book from.
Yes! When the app came out a few years ago, I was so psyched. I walked up and down the streets to catch ’em all. But I never did. I only got 120 of the original Pokemon’s.
Book that connected you with your best friend.
Is that my current best friend, or my best friend back then?
My current back friend doesn’t read a lot, but I think she was the one that introduced me to the Twilight Saga, which I really liked back when it was all the rave. My bestie in the 90’s introduced me to a danish book that directly translated was called: “Best Friends”. Fitting, no? Anyway, we actually bonded over many different books and used to do book swaps multiple times a week.
Book that seemed like a good idea but was actually a monster.
Bianca Sommerland’s Deadly Captive: The Trilogy is seriously dark, and sometimes it was a bit hard to stomach all the violence. But i am glad I did!
Book you hated to say Bye, Bye, Bye to.
Oh hello there one of my favourite songs from the 90’s. Hello to choreography dancing and real boy bands.
There’s been so many books, that I didn’t want to say Bye, Bye, Bye to. I think the most recent, was Held by Magic. I cannot wait till the next book that reunites me with Syv and her harem of antiheroes.
A book everyone loved but you hated.
I recently received an ARC of How (Not) to Marry a Duke and most of the reviews I’ve seen, was really positive. However, to me it was such a let down! It was seriously some of the worst characters I’ve ever been so unlucky as to “meet”, and I can’t figure out why anyone would like this vile female lead. Seriously, she doesn’t deserve a happy ending at all. Oh and it might be my 90’s influenced sense of humour, but there wasn’t anything fun about this book.
A book that made you wish you died of dysentery.
Both series was not only a waste of time, they were a waste of paper! I can’t stand blatant rip-off’s, book stuffing and books where it needs explaining why cheating is bad. What kind of FMC needs that explained? Oh that’s right, the bad ones.
3 books you recommend to anyone, anywhere, no matter what
Ahh… I really don’t know! I mean there’s plenty of books I love, but that doesn’t mean I’d recommend them for anyone, anywhere, no matter what.
- The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
- The Phoenix Pack by Suzanne Wright
A book that took FOR FREAKING EVER to read.
I think one of the books that’s taken me the longest to finish was Mine by Chloe Lynn Ellis. I started this book on the 15th of April and finished it on the 4th of July. This is not a long book, and the plot is pretty much like any other MMF book. However, there was still something that kept me from finishing the book.
The book you see referenced everywhere and is in everything, but that’s okay because it’s awesome.
Lately I see book reviews of The Song of Achilles and Harry Potter everywhere. But hey, that’s absolutely okay, because both rock!
Heads Up, Seven Up
Book where you peeked just REAL quick at the ending because you don’t like guessing games.
When Inheritance, the fourth and last book in the Eragon series came out, I couldn’t help but read the last 5 pages before reading the first five. What can I say, I was impatient!
Your ideal bookish snack.
Hmm I don’t really have a bookish snack. That’s not to say that I won’t eat while reading, but I don’t have a specific thing to eat when reading and another when watching TV. Lately I’m really into popcorn, so I eat that when I want, no matter what I’m doing.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
A book that kept you up all night.
I remember being scared by Stephen King’s The Shining when I was younger. Like waking up in the middle of night with nightmares kind of scared.
Bill Nye the Science Guy
A book that taught you something new
I never really read non-fiction, so there’s not too much to choose from. However, the Their Vampire Queen by Joely Sue Burkhart have taught me a lot about so many different mythologies and legends. Every time I read these books, I notice new little things, which keeps amazing me.
That’s a wrap!
Tagging for this one is going to be difficult, because I have no clue about people’s age. So I’m just going to go for it, and hope you have as much fun with this as I did!
