Hello everyone! I am here with another tag today. This is one I saw on May’s blog, and it looked like a lot of fun. I wasn’t tagged, but wanted to do it anyway :)
1. Favorite book of all time
This is too hard to answer with just one book. Here are my top 4 (not in order)
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
2. Favorite book five years ago
Again, I can’t answer this with just one answer, so I have 2 books that I remember loving back in middle school.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
3. Favorite duology/trilogy/series
For this one I would have to go with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. This was my favorite series throughout high school, and it means so much to me.
4. The last book you read
It’s been a few days since I finished a book, but I think it was Frankenstein by Mary Shelley!
5. The last poetry book you read
This one was Maroon Daydreams by Cheyenne Raine. It was really well written and a pretty short read!
6. What book most influenced your life?
This is such a hard question. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was definitely a very important read that touched me in so many ways. I also want to mention Turtles All the Way Down and Every Last Word because those are two books I really saw myself represented in. This one is tough, I feel like there are so many.
7. A book that made you ugly cry
The Starless Sea actually made me cry a couple of times, I really love that book. I wouldn’t say “ugly cry,” though. A couple of tears just slipped.
8. A book that made you laugh
The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett definitely made me laugh over some of the witty banter! Jenn Bennett’s books always make me both swoon and giggle. She gives her characters so much life and depth!
9. A character you’d like to be for the day
I would love to be Celia from The Night Circus. That entire world is so incredibly cool, and to be able to live in it would be incredible. Also, she has magic powers, and that would be so fun. There really aren’t a lot of worlds I’d actually want to go to or characters I’d want to be because they usually go on some crazy and super scary adventures that I would not do well in if I’m being honest. I’m not meant to be a YA protagonist. But Celia is someone I’d love to be.
10. A book so good you dreamt about it
I’ve definitely dreamed about going to Hogwarts when I was younger. I can’t remember ever dreaming about any other books though.
11. A book you DNFed
I DNFed Emma in the Night by Alice Walker for now. I want to pick it back up, but I wasn’t in the mood for it when I first picked it up. I also DNFed The Diviners, but again, I’m going to read it eventually, I just picked it up at a time where I couldn’t focus on a super complex narrative. I am actually very excited to read both of those, though! I don’t truly DNF (abandon completely) that many books. If I don’t want to read a book I know it from the first page most of the time, so I don’t even consider it started.
12. What book are you most excited to read?
I’m really excited to read Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. From the people who’ve read ARCs, I heard it was really good. I feel like it will totally be up my alley, so I’m excited to pick it up as soon as I can! I’m also excited to read Poemsia by Lang Leav, which is her second novel! I enjoy her poetry but haven’t had a chance to pick up Sad Girls, her first novel, yet. This one is about…you guessed it! A poet. I probably won’t get to it for a while, but it’s on my TBR!
I hope you enjoyed this post! I tag…
See you tomorrow!
