At the beginning of the year, I (finally) finished watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I’d wanted to watch this series for so long and I now love it, so of course, when I saw this tag (which was created by An Average Life), I just had to give it a go!
A book based on a game or competition
I’m going to pick the most obvious choice for this, but it’s a trilogy I absolutely love…The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Organisation queen. How do you organise your books?
My books are organised by author (not alphabetically, just those by the same author together), although there are a few by the same author that are not together, due to size differences.
A book you read for the hype
E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars. I heard so so much about this book, everyone was raving about it, so I picked up a copy and read it.
Shopping addict. What makes you buy a book?
The author if it’s one I’ve read books by in the past. If not, then usually the cover or the title catches my eye and I then buy it if I like the sound of the blurb.
A science fiction book
I Am Number Four is the first book in the Lorien Legacies series by Pittacus Lore and is a young adult science fiction book which I loved!
On a break. Which books have you put down to pick up later?
I actually do this more often than I realised. The most recent book I did this with was The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. I started reading this in May but ended up putting it to one side in June. I picked it back up in August and finished reading it.
A book that made you laugh out loud
A few years ago, I read Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart and it genuinely made me laugh out loud. I think it’s due a reread…
That time at Space Mountain. Are there any books that you’re embarrassed to admit you’ve read?
A few years ago, I read Have You Seen Her? by Karen Rose and I’ve been regretting it ever since. The book sounded good but ended up being really weird and definitely not one that I’d broadcast that I’ve read.
A scary book you’d keep in the freezer
I haven’t read it since, and I don’t think it would scare me now, but when I was roughly 11, I read Room 13 by Robert Swindells and it really scared me…it was definitely a book I’d keep in the freezer.
V is for Encyclopedia. As an adult, have you read any books with words you had to look up to understand?
There probably have been some books that I’ve had to look up words for but I can’t think of any off the top of my head.
A book with a spiritual or supernatural theme
In my final year of primary school, we read The Ghost of Thomas Kempe by Penelope Lively, which is about a house haunted by a poltergist.
The boycott. Are there any authors, booksellars or publishers you refuse to support?
Not as of yet…
A book with an OH MY GOD twist
Definitely Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones…I won’t include any spoilers.
A British classic
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens is a classic which I read years ago…I would have said Pride and Prejudice but I still haven’t finished it.
A book nobody seems to be talking about
Carol & Susan
An LGBTQ+ book or author
I have to pick Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I loved both the book and the film adaptation.
A book or character with intense/stalker vibes
A few months ago, I read You by Caroline Kepnes, after watching the Netfix adaption. While the book isn’t bad, it does have major stalker vibes.
A slow burning book or romance novel
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I haven’t read it in years but I loved it.
A book that left you feeling accomplished or better educated
Last year, I bought a copy of Say No to Plastic: 101 Easy Ways To Use Less Plastic by Harriet Dyer and it definitely left me feeling better educated regarding how I can reduce my plastic consumption.
Bonus Question: Which F.R.I.E.N.D.S character do you most identify with?
Probably Monica, although I’m nowhere near as organised!
I would like to nominate anyone who likes F.R.I.E.N.D.S to complete this tag!
