Hello, readers! Unfortunately, I am back at school (I am a teacher), so I thought it would be fun to do the back to school book tag. The original tag came from Jenny Unscripted on YouTube. You can see the original tag here.
English/Language Arts – Name your favorite author or books’ writing style
I LOL’d several times while reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. Her style is effortless and easy to read, which is exactly what I want from a YA contemporary.
Math – A book that made you frustrated
I was super frustrated while reading Caraval. There was not enough world building and the focus was on the MC’s insta-love with a stranger.
Science – A book that made you think or question things
Definitely The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware! I was scratching my head over the end of that book because it was very confusing!
History – Your favorite book from a different time period
I love The Great Gatsby. I think everything about that time period is fascinating.
Art – Your favorite book with pictures
I don’t really read many books with pictures, so I am going to change this to my favorite cover art. I love the cover for The Hazel Wood even though I really disliked that book.
Drama – A book you would love to see adapted to a movie or TV show
Most of my answers for this are already adapted or in progress. I think Final Girls by Riley Sager would make a really good movie though.
Music – Name a character you think (or know) would have the same musical taste as you
I can not think of a single book I’ve read where the character’s taste is music has been mentioned! My musical taste is all over the place though. I like a little bit of everything.
Lunch – A food you would love to try from a book
It is my life’s goal to try a Butter Beer. I know you can make one with a Pinterest recipe, but I want to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and have an overpriced Butter Beer while I walk around Diagon Alley. I don’t ask for much in life.
Bus Ride Home – A book or author that is relaxing
Jenny Han or Katie Cotugno books are relaxing to me because they are fun, thoughtless, quick reads. I read too many thrillers, which are not relaxing!
Extra Credit – A book someone else told you to read and you ended up enjoying it
Someone told me to read The Girl on the Train years ago. I doubt I would enjoy it today, but I was not reading at that point in my life, and it was a huge deal to me that I actually finished a book for once.
I’m sure I will think of better answers after I post this, but my mind is literally going blank for some of the questions! Answer the question that appeals to you most in the comments!
