I feel as if it’s been forever since I did one of these book tags. What seemed like ages ago (a.k.a. February of this year), a blog I follow—Living One Day @ A Time—did this tag. I bookmarked it immediately, as I really wanted to do it. And then I promptly forgot about it (is anyone surprised)?
As it is the height of summer in the United States (which means it’s hot) and I can’t eat ice cream because I’m avoiding dairy and sugar, I thought this would be the perfect time to do this tag, both to get myself hungry for something I can’t eat and to hopefully get all my viewers hungry for ice cream too. I know, I’m cruel!
A very long book series that you want to read but probably won’t, and why.
I picked Vampire Academy by Richelle Mea. This isn’t an extremely long series (only six books and a couple prequels), but any series is long to me if there’s more than three books. I saw the movie of this and I’ve heard tons of reviews and I feel like I should read it (because it’s popular), but it looks so shallow and stereotypic that, let’s face it, I probably will never actually get to read it.
A book series that you would read again and again and again.
I’m going to go with a classic answer: the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. The best part of this series is the world. I remember reading the early books again and again as the new books came out (to refresh my memory), but since the last book came out I haven’t read the series. I really need to go back and read it again.
A book with a green cover.
Random, but I love pistachio ice cream! I’m going to pick The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I read it a couple months ago and I truly loved it! It’s such a good book and the cover gives off perfect vibes for the matching story.
A book with the cutest romance.
The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker was one of my favorite books when I was twelve or so. In fact, I own the entire series! And the cover of the book is pink, so I thought it would be perfect to go with strawberry ice cream. Anyway, the romance in here between Eadric and Emma is so adorable and hilarious. It’s one of the few books where I find the romance cute, but not disgustingly cute.
A book with a sour ending.
I choose Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. It’s less sour than bitter, but it’s still a difficult pill to swallow by the end, because you keep hoping for a happier ending and only getting sadness and despair. Still, I do love this book!
A children’s book that you like.
I like a lot of children’s books, but I’m trying to think of one I haven’t talked about on my blog already. I’ll choose A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (in particular, the first book, A Bad Beginning). I really liked the macabre themes of these books, as most children’s books tend to be falsely happy.
Your favorite classic.
How do I choose? They’re all so amazing! I’ll just choose a random one then. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy was one of my favorite books as a teen and still remains one of my favorite classics of all time. It’s got a perfect combination of mystery, action, romance, and suspense.
A very long book that you read very fast.
The one book that comes to mind first is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. While not the longest book I’ve read—standing at about 522 pages in softback—I did read it in about a day and a half for BookTubeAThon last November (at least, it might have been November…I’m bad with dates). This is extremely fast for me, as I usually take more time to read long books.
Well, there you are! Are you hungry for ice cream yet?
I’m not going to tag anyone, as always, but feel free to do this tag! I’d love to read your answers, follow my blog for more madness and, as always,
Best wishes in your life full of adventure,
