Time for another tag! I feel like it’s been awhile since I’ve done one and as soon as I saw the Schitt’s Creek Book Tag, I knew I had to participate. This was created over on Youtube by Julie at Pages and Pens and Aimee Reads. Alright, let’s just into the questions:
Johnny Rose: Uplifting book with a good message
I think this book is the epitome of an uplifting book with a good message, especially for young women. I’d highly recommend it if that’s what you’re looking for!
Moira Rose: An overtop character you can’t help but love
Sumi from The Wayward Children series by Seanen McGuire. Sumi comes back from a nonsense world where everything is over the top, so I definitely understood why she acted the way she did throughout the series.
David Rose: A book that represents your aesthetic
A creepy book set beside the ocean is completely my aesthetic.This cover is also amazing so this is definitely a book perfect for this prompt.
Alexis Rose: Best character growth/arc.
This definitely is not a favorite of mine but I do think it’s perfect for this prompt. Both characters in this story grew exponentially by the end.
Stevie Budd: Book with a favorite ride or die friendship/group
Honestly, there are quite a few books I could’ve chosen for this prompt but the friendship group in Mistborn is literally ride or die, so ultimately this is the one I had to go with.
Ted Mullens: Favorite book with an animal on the cover
I didn’t even have to take a second to think over this question. Read this book! Please! It’s so good.
Patrick Brewer: Ideal love interest
I’m not sure if this question is asking for a character that’s my ideal love interest, but I don’t really look at characters in books that way so I’m going to change it a little to my favorite couple and that of course has to go to Sabran and Ead.
Community service: a book you read for school/buddy read/readathon challenge you had low expectations for but ended up being amazing.
I haven’t participated in any real readathons or buddy reads yet because I always forget, after I’ve made a TBR….so, I guess I’ll have to choose one of the few books I read for school that I actually enjoyed and that’s 1984 by George Orwell.
“Ewww David!”: A book you DNF’d because the content was too much for you
I’m cheating a little because I haven’t actually started this book. Thus far, I’ve never set a book down because the content was too much for me. Not much can really get under my skin except for body horror. If I read about anything involving body horror, I get physically uncomfortable and I’ve heard that’s a huge content warning for Wilder Girls so I’m steering clear.
“Love that journey for me”: Best series ender/overall series progression
Time for a controversial opinion. I completely understand all of the gripes about the ending of this series but, I wasn’t all that emotionally attached myself and I binge-read the last two books in one weekend, so the enjoyment it provided me is unmatched and I think it was one of the best trilogies I’ve read just based on pure enjoyment alone.
“Eat glass”: A book series or author you broke up with.
I’m breaking up both with this author and this series. I just didn’t enjoy anything about my reading experience and I’ve heard this is one of the author’s best works so…I just don’t think we’re compatible.
“Very uninterested in that opinion”: A popular opinion you disagree with.
Honestly, most of the books I listed have some sort of popular opinion listed that I disagree with. There are quite a few hyped books that I just don’t enjoy. I think the best example of that is the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo or Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I also think it’s okay to dog-ear your pages….don’t come for me, please.
Alright, that’s the end of the tag! Have you seen Schitt’s Creek? No spoilers please, I’m only on season 2 but I’m absolutely loving it. I also tag you if you want to do this one! Please let me know if you do so I can read through your answers.
