TAG #19: Soundtrack to my Life Book Tag

Hello guys !

I think I’ve been sitting on this tag since February and I shamelessly admit that it is the same for a lot of the tags I still have to tackle. And since I’m trying to be a decent blogger and keep up with schedule even with school starting I’ll be drafting most of them over the next week to be able to post them whenever I feel like it. For this week, it’s the Soundtrack to my Life Book Tag.

TAGS (4).png

 

I’ve been tagger by Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels to do this awesome tag so I want to thank her very very much for that (she tagged everyone hehe so it counts). And without further ado, let’s dive into this lenghty tag.

Opening Credits: Favorite Childhood book.

Brothers Grimm

Brothers Grimm’s Tales. Not the scary creepy ones though, I didn’t know about those  until I grew up. I’m talking about the ones with Fairytale endings and feel good stories. Those were almost all I read until age 7 and I absolutely adored them.

Waking up: A book that got you out of a reading slump.

John Green - The Fault in our Stars.jpg

The Fault in our Stars – John Green. I’m not talking about the great slump, that one just healed itself but before that I was in a little slump that was over after reading this book and it is the only John Green book I actually do like, it might be because of the positive effect it had on me.

School: A book you had to read for school that you ended up loving.

Victor Hugo - Le dernier jour d'un condamné.jpg

The Last Day of a Condemned Man – Victor Hugo. I went into this book very sceptic because it sounded sad and morbid and just not my cup of tea. It WAS sad and heavy but I somehow really enjoyed reading it.

Falling In Love: An author you love so much you want to read all of their books.

JUST  ONE? I discovered so many great authors this year. My top 3 would be Jandy Nelson, Ryan Graudin and Victoria Schwab in no particular order. I just adore them so much and every book of theirs I read is a favorite. So no need for further explanations.

Fight: Book with the best action sequences.

A Gathering of Shadows Final

A Gathering of Shadows – V. E. Schwab. OH MY GOD ! OH MY GOD ! OH MY GOD ! Head spinning, heart stopping action with the tournament and troubles Kell gets into and everything, I just need the sequel right now to know what happens next !

Break up: A book or series you didn’t finish and do not intend to finish.

19081403

The Lux series – Jennifer L. Armentrout. No. Just no. I don’t want to offend anyone in this post so all I’m going to say is that I really didn’t like the little of it I read. If you want to know why here’s my review for Obsidian and 30 something percent of Onyx.

Hanging With Friends: Book you think everyone else should read.

Markus Suzak - I Am the Messenger

The Messenger – Markus Zusak. There’s no badass MC, no epic battles, only a mystery, a guy who doesn’t know who he is and a message to take out of this. I really loved this book for the effect it had on me, it is just so beautiful and I’d recommend it to everyone, especially if you’re struggling with what’s coming next in your life.

Breakdown: Book that seriously affected you/had you crying your eyes out.

Tabitha Sazuma - Forbidden

Forbidden – Tabitha Suzuma. This book is in no way a happy story nor a “conventional’ one, it deals with a taboo subject so if you’re uncomfortable reading about incest I’d recommend staying away from it. By the end, I was sobbing (remember that not many books make me cry) because of how much I cared about the characters and what happened to them, which to be honest made me sick to my stomach a bit but I still loved it.

Roadtrip: Your favorite series (more than 3 books).

Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling. Duuh!! What kind of question is this? I absolutely adore this series and nothing in the world would ever top it or even compete with it, it is just TOO good. The series just feels like home.

Flashback: Your favorite book from 5 years ago.

Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist

The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho. Up until this year, this was the only book I reread countless amounts of times and each time I did I got something different, something more out of it. It is pretty philosophical and about a kind of internal journey so if you don’t like that kind of stuff well… You should still try it because it’s amazing.

Getting Back Together: What book you can not stop rereading.

Jandy Nelson - I'll Give You the Sun

I’ll Give you the Sun – Jandy Nelson. Technically I haven’t reread this one yet because I just read it a couple of months ago BUT I’m predicting I’ll be going back to it a lot because I just can’t get enough of it.

Wedding: A book that is really special to you.

1118668

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak. Why is this special you ask? Because it was the first book I ever thought of as a REAL favorite and also because it is the one that introduced me to the wonder that is Historical fiction and more precisely the WWII period and I adored it ever since.

Moment of Triumph: Longest book you’ve ever read.

Victor Hugo - Les misérables

Les misérables – Victor Hugo. Granted, I read it in parts because there’s a french edition that cuts it into 3 parts designed for kids BUT it still is one mammoth book of more than a thousand pages.

Death Scene: Book or series you wish had ended differently.

N/A. I have nothing in mind right now, because I’m pretty easy to please when it comes to endings.

Funeral: Book with the best or worst epilogue.

Never, Never – Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher. Just NO. That epilogue made no sense to me. I was already angry about all the explanations so when it was topped off with that unnecessary over the top cheesy epilogue, I just couldn’t do it anymore.


I Tag :

EVERYONE ! Because I’m lazy today.


That’s it until next time.

If you did the tag, go ahead and leave the link in the comments so that I can check it out.

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

  1. This is such a great tag, and I loved reading your answers as well!
    I completely agree with you on A Gathering of Shadows, that book had some amazing fight sequences. I loved all the scenes from the tournament! I’m not surprised to see you picked Harry Potter as your favourite series though, it would definitely be one of my picks for my favourite series as well (I have a few all-time favourite series)! 😀
    I’ll Give You the Sun is probably a book I’ll end up re-reading over and over too. Jandy Nelson is an amazing YA contemporary author and I feel all her books, even those she hasn’t released yet, will be on my favourites list!

    • Aaah I’m happy you did 😄
      Riight? It has be 2months since I read it and I’m still not over it !
      Well, to be honest HP is the obvious choice here. What are some of your other all time favorites ? (I think the Lunar chronicles os one of them right??)
      Yeees I feel the same way about her, I’m sure I’ll love everything she’ll write in the future!

      • It’s been a little longer since I read it but I’m definitely going to need to pick it up again before the year is over!
        Ha, yeah The Lunar Chronicles is definitely one of them, and if I could only pick one other it would be the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab. I need the third book so so much right now!
        I feel like she’s possibly working on another book now, I remember seeing something on Goodreads but there was no cover or blurb so we’re in for a long wait. 🙂

  2. There’s only a few of the books on this list that I’ve read and I agree with them all! I’ll Give You the Sun is JUST SO GOOD and I was really not a fan of Obsidian! I really need to get to reading V. E. Schwab because her books just sound so great 🙂 great list!

  3. Not enough people have read The Messenger!!! Everyone just knows about The Book Thief, which is fine, because it’s a glorious book that I wouldn’t want to miss from my shelf (I cried so much), but The Messenger is great in a whole different kind of way. Now, if only I could say that I love Zusak’s Wolfe boys series as well :/
