Book Tag Week!! 😀
And now I present the Types of Memes Book Tag. It was created by Icebreaker694. I would have included pics of the memes, but that’s too much to do and I’m feeling lazy so just pretend I included them, yah!
A book you have negative feelings about
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celaena Sardothien sucks. She’s not a great assassin at all! I’ve only read the first 2 books of this series and they were both average. Because of what the story promised – the protagonist being a badass assassin, – I was disappointed by it. The protagonist doesn’t reach that level.
What If I Told You
A book you spoiled for yourself
Lol! Nearly all the books I’ve read.
The Stand by Stephen King
I recently read it and hated it. I got frustrated with the pace and the characters and decided to spoil myself on the ending to figure it all out quickly. It was disappointing. From all the hype, I expected it to be good. It was such a letdown.
It’s a post-apocalyptic novel in which a virus wipes out 99% of the human race. The 1% left is caught in a battle between good and evil represented by an old Black woman and a White dude dressed in all black who loves to laugh.
I Don’t Always
A book you don’t always like but when you’re reading it you do
Gilded Cage by Vic James
Probably Gilded Cage, the first in a YA series set in a modern England where the magically gifted rule over those without such abilities. I enjoyed the story while I was reading it, but I had a lot of issues with it and thought the world-building was a little weak.
A good classic or retro book that’ll never get old
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
I don’t think this fantasy classic will ever get old or less enjoyable. I love it for the characters and the adventure and love revisiting it every so often.
Just Little Things
A book that’s very relatable
Native Son by Richard Wright
A classic about a young Black man living in Chicago in the 1930s who kills a White woman by accident. The story touches on race relations and poverty and other social issues. It’s a good read and an important one and is very relatable to issues we are dealing with today — discrimination, stereotyping, police brutality, etc.
A book that you’ve seen almost everywhere
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
A YA novel about hip-hop, I think. I keep seeing it around and I’m intrigued.
You Don’t Say
A predictable book
City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson
A YA novel set in Kenya that’s about a girl seeking revenge for her mom’s murder. It’s an okay read and is actually quite engaging, but I got annoyed by the plot and its predictability.
One Does Not Simply…Binge Read the Entire Book
A book you binge read
The Angel Stone by Juliet Dark
So last year I binged on the Fairwick Chronicles, a romance, fantasy trilogy about a woman who moves to upstate New York to work at a small college that turns out to be more than it seems. The story has some problems and is a little predictable, but I enjoyed it and was hooked.
A book that taught you something new
Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company That Addicted America by Beth Macy
A nonfiction book I recently read about the opioid crisis. There’s much I learned from it that I didn’t know, such as the Sackler Family connection to Purdue Pharma and the opioid crisis. Yea, I wasn’t paying attention to the news so I’m like the last person to know of that connection.
A book that’s just really adorable
Last Stop on the Reindeer Express by Maudie Powell-Tuck, illus. by Karl James Mountford
No idea what this book is about, but I bought it shortly after Christmas because I love the cover. It’s so adorable.
