This is my first ever book tag (yay!) and I was tagged by the lovely JJ over on This Dark Material , so make sure you go and check out her answers too!
Rules are simple! Answer all questions honestly, and tag five fellow book bloggers to join in with you!
Which book, most recently, did you not finish?
I’m one of those readers that never DNF’s a book, even if I’m hating it. I will literally always get to the end, but sometimes I will skim read. So the last book I ended up skim reading would have to be Morrissey’s List Of The Lost. LOVE his music, DESPISED his novel.
Which book is your guilty pleasure?
The Twilight saga. Yes, Edward is controlling and creepy as hell. Yes, Jacob is the definition of a man who can’t take no for an answer. And yes, Bella was a stereotypical damsel in distress, but I love the stories. Probably more for sentimental reasons than anything else, but they will always hold a special place in my heart for being my first YA series.
Which book do you love to hate?
Dreamfall by Amy Plum. There were a lot of great reviews for this, so please do not be put off reading it! It was bursting with potential, and as someone who loves horror, it was just full of never-ending genre tropes that I couldn’t look past. My boyfriend ended up giving it a five star review, so it fuels my ‘hatred’ even more because we tease each other over contrasting opinions sometimes. I’m still hopeful for the sequel though!
Which book would you throw into the sea?
I’m going to piss off a few horror fans here, but I’d throw Stephen King’s It in the sea and hope no one ever uncovers it again. The basis of the story is insanely good, as is King’s writing (obviously!), but it’s far too long and starts veering off into nonsensical directions.
Which book have you read the most?
Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson. It was my favourite story when I was younger, and remains a personal favourite to this day.
Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
Any self help book. Hell, no.
Which book could you not live without?
I’m going to cheat here and say the entirety of the Harry Potter series (not including The Cursed Child!) – those books shaped who I was as a person, and I wouldn’t be me without them. I can’t even imagine not being able to read them again.
Which book made you angriest?
The Exact Opposite Of Okay by Laura Steven. However, not a negative kind of angry. What I mean is that this book fuelled so much rage against the way we as a society treat women, that I was insanely annoyed once I’d reached the end because it was SO. DAMN. ACCURATE. Such a powerful and poignant story and I highly recommend you read it!
Which book make you cry the most?
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. I fully admit that I expected this to be a light, fluffy contemporary before I started reading, but I genuinely don’t think I’ve cried so much over a novel. All it takes is for me to pick up my copy and re-read the last few pages to end up an emotional wreck all over again.
Which book cover do you hate the most?
I mean, I love Rick Riordan books. I love his US book covers, and I really don’t mind some of his UK ones either, but this was just awful to have on my shelf (it looked a lot worse in person, believe me!) – I may or may not have gotten rid of my copy because I hated the cover so much….don’t judge.
