Hello Hello! How are you?
Happy Saturday! It’s time for a book tag on my blog again, yay! I was tagged by the lovely Danni from For Books Sake to do the 90s Book Tag Music Edition and it has taken me a few weeks (months?) to get there, but I’m finally going to do it today!
I’m not a massive music lover, I’m going to get hated on now aren’t I? But yeah, I don’t often listen to music and when I do, it’s not for very long because it gives me migraines, but since this tag is about books, I’m sure it’s going to be fun!
This tag was created by Jemma from What Reading Does and Milly from A Books Neverland. Now, onto this tag!
What’s My Age Again? – blink 182
What age did you discover your love of reading?
I’ve loved reading all my life, I’m now currently 21-years-old, but I had a big period during my teenage years where I didn’t read at all! I was a bookworm as a child, and my parents always read books to me/with me, but I suppose that I discovered my love of reading around the age of 13, but then only really started reading again properly around the age of 17.
All Star – Smash Mouth
What is your favourite genre?
You all know this by now aha, but my all-time favourite genre is fantasy. I just love the intricacies, the world-building, the characters and their developments, the mind-blowing plots, magic, myths, adventure, racing against time and fighting off evil, yeah, I’m a fantasy nerd. I also really love historical fiction and science fiction that’s more on the lighter side!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Deep Blue Something
What is your go to reading snack/drink (or just your favourite)?
I suppose that my favourite drinks while reading are tea and coffee, but I always have my water bottle within arm distance anyway. And I don’t usually snack while reading as I absolutely hate getting the pages dirty or greasy, but my favourite snack is either crisps or crackers and cheese!
Give It Away – Red Hot Chili Peppers
What book do you ALWAYS recommend to people?
Hum, this is a hard one because lately, I’ve been reading so diversely and across all genres, that my recommendations have really jumped about a lot. Before I started blogging though, my go-to references were Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (which is still one you will hear me raving about), We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows. I will have to have a bit of a think about some books I’ve read recently that I will be recommending in the future!
…Baby One More Time – Britney Spears
A book or series you have read more than once?
I don’t think I’ve read an actual series more than once, but I am pretty certain I’ve read both Les Misérables by Victor Hugo and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart at least 3 times each, so I obviously need to reread more of my favourites, don’t I?
Tearin’ Up My Heart – N’Sync
A book that broke your heart to finish?
It’s another old one, but I think I will have to go with The Fault in Our Stars by John Green for this question. Nearly all the books I’ve mentioned in this tag so far were my favourites during my teenage years, and I have apparently not read many heart-wrenching ones since. The only other one I can think of is Wreck by Kirstin Cronn-Mills that I read in 2019.
Crush – Jennifer Paige
Who was your first bookish crush?
I can think of two for this question: Edward Cullen from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, I know this is a really obvious one, but he was my first bookish crush when I was a teenager. And a more recent one would be Rhysand from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas, I totally fell head over heels for him and I am due a reread of this very soon because I miss him very much ahaha!
Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
A book that you read as a teen that you still love today?
You’ve heard me say it before, and guess what? I’ll say it again, and again until every single person in the world has read it (only joking lol): Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. I read this book when I was 12, and it just did something to me, I don’t know what, but it is stuck in my brain and my heart and it has made me who I am. I love it dearly and try to recommend it as much as possible, it’s a really big, long, hard to read, often faffy, historical, violent, emotional book, but it’s very special to me and I will endeavour to reread before 2020 is up!
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed this tag, and as always, if you weren’t tagged by me but you would like to do this post, feel free to do so and tag me so I can read your answers! See you soon, stay safe,
