Hey bookworms! Time for another book tag! I’ve recently seen this tag over at Ariel Bissett‘s channel on YouTube. I know I’m pretty late and I understand if no one is doing this anymore, but screw it. I’m doing this for fun. (Also I’m barely discovering Ariel’s channel and I am in love with her personality). Anyway without a further a do, let’s start.
The only rule, really, is to respond to each scenario with a book you’d sacrifice.
Disclaimer: These are my opinions. I do not mean to offend anyone. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, these are just mine.
An Over-Hyped book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!
- Anything by Cassandra Clare // I have no desire to read her books and it feels like I see her books on every other bookstagram post on my feed.
A Sequel: Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard // I really enjoyed Red Queen and I was really hyped for Glass Sword but it felt so anti-climatic. It just seemed to drag on and on while nothing interesting happened. In the end, I ended up DNF’ing this after I think 45%(?)
A Classic: Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte // I generally don’t enjoy classics for their very descriptive style of writing and just ehhhh. I tend to nod off whenever I try to read a classics, but this one specifically was just ugh. Rochester was shady as hell for keeping his wife locked up. I didn’t finish this one either but I did watch the movie and even that was cringey as hell.
Your least favourite book of life!: Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?
- Arena 1 by Morgan Rice // It’s been a good while since I’ve mentioned this book and frankly I don’t have the energy to rant as to why I hate this book. Just so many things wrong with this book, I’ll leave it at that.
And that’s the book sacrifice tag! If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged. Remember, these are only my personal opinions on these books and I don’t mean to offend your favorite book/author.
Until next time!
