Hello Hello! How are you?
Another week just started (the weekend went by way too fast!) and this time I’m posting a tag on my blog.
It’s been a while since I have done one, and I have a lot to catch up on, but when I saw Danni from For Books Sake had tagged me in the Days of the Week book tag, I knew I needed to do it. Thank you so much for tagging me Danni, this one was so fun!
SECRET BOOK SUNDAY
What book or series do you secretly love that you don’t always tell people?
Well… I’m probably going to get shouted at, but I have always loved the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. I know it is super problematic and a lot of people say it’s a load of sh*t… but I read it at a time when I really needed it, and the nostalgic feeling I get when rereading it is just great. I wasn’t a Harry Potter fan growing up (I only read it when I was 18), so Twilight filled that void for me.
Which two books or series do you think would be cool if they were mashed up as one book or series?
Oh, this is an interesting question. I think a mash-up of Seekers series by Josie Jaffrey and Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch would be incredible. I think Jack and Peter would really get on, they are both funny, and the teams are both amazing.
What is your favourite trilogy?
A lot of the series I read are more than three books so it took me a while to find one that would work. I finally settled on the Firebird series by Claudia Gray. Like Twilight, this was a series that got me through a really difficult period, and it just swept me away. It is an amazing science fiction time/world travel series that is light on the science front but still amazing. I just highly recommend it to everyone!
What book has the wackiest story or wackiest cover?
I am going to say the same one that Danni did because it’s the first one that popped into my mind: The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggitt-Phillips. I read this book last year for a tour and it was honestly amazing. It was so funny and completely ludicrous, but also had some very important messages!
What book or series brings back memories from your past?
I’ve already talked about 2 series that I read ages ago and that mean a lot to me, so the next series I can think of is The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins for the sole reason that it was the first sort of fantasy/dystopia series I read when I was a teen. And I also think it is the series that got me into reading after having spent a few years not reading at all.
FREAKY BOOK FRIDAY
What book freaked you out the most or what book cover freaked you out the most?
This is definitely going to be a horror and I have to say that The Shining by Stephen King absolutely terrified me. I read it in only 3 days, however, I then could not sleep properly for ages. It was so scary and freaky and messed up. And guess what? I’m planning on rereading it soon with a massive group of people in the Stephen King readalong.
Post a picture of your favourite bookshelf, a couple of bookshelves, or an entire bookcase.
I have way too many books, and way too many bookcases that are filled, but here is one that I love because of all the pretty colours!
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed my post, see you soon, stay safe,
