Hey, loves! Happy Tuesday :)
Today I thought I would do this tag that Boston created! She actually tagged me to do it but I haven’t been able to sit down and film it, so I thought I would bring it to book bloggers instead!
If you are an active Twitter user, as I am, you would know that there is always tons of drama in the book community on there. I wouldn’t even call most of it drama… just people blowing trivial topics up. Boston’s tag is meant to be lighthearted and poke fun at some of the ridiculous arguments that have started!
Definitely be sure to check out her video for some background info on all of the drama!
Let’s get into the questions :)
Dick Soap Gate- Your favorite smutty book
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas: I haven’t read many smutty books, but I’m slowly getting more into them! This one was good, I really enjoyed it. It is also definitely one of the smuttiest books I’ve read.*
*But I don’t have much to compare it to, for reference
Incest Shipping- Your favorite sibling duo
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: The first one that came to mind was Scarlet and Donatella from the Caraval series. I recently finished this one, so it’s on my mind. I loved the relationship these sisters have. They are very protective of each other but also know how to lay low and give each other space if needed. I think they are a great duo!
Handbook for Mortals Drama- An overhyped book
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: Sorry, but this book is just way too overhyped. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. But it wasn’t anything special by any means. I didn’t even want to read it initially, but because it gained so much popularity, I decided to pick it up. I had expected to love it so much, but the hype definitely made it fall flat for me.
JKR Drama- A character that makes questionable choices
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: Jay Gatsby makes incredibly questionable choices. I mean, he bought a house across a lake just so that he could sort of coax Daisy, his love from years ago (who is now MARRIED), back to him. Strange, odd man.
Marie Kondo- If you could only keep one book, what would it be?
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: I thought about this question recently for a collab youtube video I was a part of. I chose this book for a few reasons- it’s long so you can read and re-read it forever and always find new parts that you didn’t pay much attention to. Also, the writing is so beautiful and it’s an inspiration for my own writing, so I would definitely want to keep it around. Also, it’s fantasy, and since I mainly write contemporary, I would want a break from it at times.
Tomi Adayemi vs Nora Roberts- Two books with similar titles
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman:
These are just the first ones to pop into my head but there are THOUSANDS of examples.
Booktube Group Photo- A full-cast audiobook you love
Daisy Jones and the Six by TJR: I will use any opportunity to promote this book. IT IS AMAZING. Please read it. Listen to the audiobook. And then read it physically. Then read it one more time (if you want to be as crazy as me).
I hope you enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun writing it and thinking up these answers :) If you would like to do this tag, then I tag you! If you do it, please leave a link in the comments so I can check it out, too.
