This awesome book tag was created by Aentee at readatmidnight.com so definitely go and check it out! Her whole blog is awesome and has a huge variety of bookish things for you to check out!
I’m a massive Pokemon fan, have been since I was six-years-old so when I heard that Pokemon Go was coming out in the UK – FINALLY! – I was like my little self again, jumping around like crazy. When I heard that this book tag was around the book blogosphere, I just knew that I had to take part. So here we go… Welcome to my Pokemon Go Book Tag!
Now this one is a very hard one to answer because I have owned books ever since I was born, when I was a baby, my Mom and Dad would read books to me every day. So really, I thank my parents for being the reason why I love books so much. I can’t really pinpoint the exact moment in time where I finished a book and thought ‘yup, I’m going to be an obsessive reader when I’m older and spend all my money on them.‘ So thanks Mom and Dad, you’re the reason why I’m broke.
I could have said Harry Potter but no… As much as I love Harry Potter and the world that J.K Rowling created, the Spiderwick Chronicles by Tony Diterlizzi and Holly Black were magical to me when I first read them. I loved the whole premise of a magical, faerie realm with ogres and goblins. I loved everything about these stories and they will always contain a place in my heart. (I even bought a copy of the field guide that the characters own because I found the creatures in the books so fascinating!)
Don’t hurt me guys… But for this one, it’s going to have to be Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I haven’t even started them yet because I got so bored of hearing about how good they were and hearing about all of the hype for the film. I will read them eventually, but maybe once all of the attention surrounding this series dies down a bit. It’s a shame though because they do look like really good books!
I could have kept to the Pokemon theme, but this gif was too brilliant to pass up
I’m not exactly sure what to put for this one. I mean, the whole YA genre as a whole is pretty similar (but different… if you get what I mean?) I’ve never read a book – luckily – that I’ve read and then thought ‘wow…this book is similar to _______” If I find a book is very similar to a couple of others that I’ve read like Thirteen Reasons Why, then I end up disliking it anyway.
Sorry George R.R Martin but your books are intimidating! I absolutely love the TV series and I HAVE read the first book in the series and really enjoyed it, but to read the rest of the series is just scary. I also love to marathon series so can you imagine how long it would take me to read all of the GOT books back-to-back?! I do want to read the rest of the series, I really do but I just need to find the motivation – and the time! – to read them.
Now I don’t know if this one means it kept you up at night in a scary sense or in an it-was-too-good-to-put-down sense because Gengar is a ghost Pokemon…
So I’m going to go with the too good one. For me, this was definitely Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. This story was just absolutely fantastic and I couldn’t go to sleep knowing that I still had some of the book left to read. So I stayed away til 3am and finally finished it!
Oh, this one is easy! Jace and Clary, I’m calling you! The Mortal Instruments is one of my favourite series of all time and the chemistry between Jace and Clary is just…. YOU CAN’T MISS IT! IT’S AMAZING AND I LOVE THEM TOGETHER AND NOW LOOK WHAT YOU’VE MADE ME DO! I’M NOW IN FANGIRL MODE!! ARRRGGGHHHH!
Kindred Spirits is one but that’s probably because it’s 62 pages long… BUT IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD!
For this one though, I would have to say Soulmates by Holly Bourne. I think the concept of this book was absolutely amazing as true Holly Bourne style, the writing was perfect. Bourne is one of my favourite authors and she never lets me down. Considering Soulmates is a 544-page book, I read it in a day. I was so captivated by it!
Ermmm… Hello? Harry Potter?!!!! This series could have so many spin-offs it’s crazy. Obviously, we’ve just had The Cursed Child released and then there’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them coming out soon… But what about Dumbledore? James, Lily, and Snape? Voldemort? All these characters would have such amazing spin-offs and I need them in my life.
For those of you who are regular readers of my blog and follow me on Twitter, you’re probably sick of me talking about this book. To Kill A Mockingbird was one of the books that I had to study for my English GCSE. I thought it was going to be rubbish since it’s a book we have to study in school and it’s considered a ‘classic’. Once I had finished the book, I was absolutely amazed. So I read it about a billion more times. It’s my favourite book ever and I will never stop loving it.
I’ve got loads for this one. I’m still yet to read The Grisha Trilogy, the Throne of Glass trilogy and The Raven Cycle. Yes, I know. You’re probably thinking what the hell I’m doing with my life. I own all of these series but I just haven’t gotten round to reading them. I WILL, DON’T WORRY! I’m still very very excited to start reading them.
Ummmm.. Hello? Look how pretty this edition of To Kill A Mockingbird is. I know it just looks like any other classic edition of a book but this is my favourite book ok? And I need this in my life. Like, right now… Because it’s pretty… and has a golden bookmark in it… ENOUGH SAID
It’s not a debut novel but this is a book from a very very new author and that is The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. I read her debut novel: Everything Everything, and loved it to pieces! So I can’t wait to see what her second book is like!
Anything Holly Bourne, Rainbow Rowell, Cassandra Clare and Jandy Nelson… All of their books have been fantastic and I can’t wait to read more from them.
