I was bored, so I have decided to do a book tag. because what better way to pass the time than to answer questions about books? and since I'm all about social media, this one was perfect for me.
Twitter (Favourite shortest book): I don't understand why this is shortest book but whatever. I'm not sure what my favourite shortest book is. Please hold while I think about this for the next 20 minutes... Ok so I'm excluding novellas and children's books, so my favourite shortest book would probably be The Boy on the Top of the Mountain by John Boyne. I didn't think I liked it as much as I did until I realised that I still think about that book months after reading it.
Facebook (A book everybody pressured you into reading): No one has actually pressured me into reading something in the sense that they have followed me around pestering me until I've read whatever book. But I feel like when a book is really hyped, that I need to read it. So in a sense, I am being pressured by the hype and honestly, there's so many books I could choose for this but I've decided to go with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Now, I ended up enjoying this book, just not as much as everyone else it seems. I found the main character to be really bitchy, annoying and just plain ridiculous at times. I liked the plot and I found a lot of stuff I could relate to, but just not to the same level of everyone else apparently.
Tumblr (A book you read before it was cool): I like totes had a Tumblr before it was cool like woah man. Anyway, this is definitely Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I freaking loved this book and I read it way back in 2012 not even 3 months after it was published, so I'm pretty sure I was the one who made that book cool. Anyway, when I first joined the book community last year, people were only just reading it and I felt so cool because I read it first (probs not but it felt like it)
MySpace (A book you don't remember liking or not): I read this book in 2012, and I can specifically remember reading it, yet I have no idea what it's about or whether or not I even liked it, and that book is My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. I kind of want to reread it again just to see, but that's so much effort.
Instagram (A book that was so beautiful you had to Instagram it): This one is more probably The Heir by Kiera Cass. All of the books in The Selection series are beautiful, but I particularly loved The Heir. I don't think I own any books that are prettier than those to be honest. I'm probably wrong, but just off the top of my head, I can't think about one.
YouTube (A book you wish would be turned into a movie): I've had this question in a few tags I've done, so I thought I'd go completely out of left field (is that the right saying? I don't even know), and give an answer completely different to what I normally say and I'm going to go with Can you Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella. I just think this would be such a great romcom, and romcom's are my all time favourite movies to watch. It's so funny, and when reading it, the book actually felt like I was watching a romcom. So yes, it would be fantastic. Likewise with I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella which I actually liked more. They would both make such great movies.
Goodreads (A Book you recommend to everyone): The book I'm going to recommend is a very recent read for me, however I honestly think that everyone should read it. It may not change your life, but I think that most people would enjoy it, and that is The 13th Gift by Joanne Huist Smith. This is a true story and that's what really makes it for me. Check it out, it's only $2 on Amazon. Do it.
Skype (A Book with characters you wish you could talk to instead of just reading about): Now I don't really have an answer for this. When I read a book, I'm not one of those people who think "OMG I want to be friends with these people", I'm one of those people who actually put myself into their shoes. I want to be these people. Also, I'm a pretty shy introverted person, so I don't really feel like talking to these people I don't even know, gosh! Although if I had to pick, I would probably pick Marlee from The Selection series. I wouldn't pick America because she's so confident,.. I don't even know how to describe it but she's confident so she would just walk all over me so I don't think I could talk to her, I'd also have nothing to say so there's really no point in even trying with America. I definitely couldn't talk to Maxon because he's a Prince and that would just be crazy, also he's busy with all of those other girls so I'd just be boring him. I wouldn't even want to talk to Aspen because why would I? The maids are actually more my style, I found them really nice in the books. They're the sort of people I could talk to. I'm putting way too much thought into this. Stopping now.
And there you have it folks, the Social Media booktag. That literally took me 45 minutes to do. I would read the question and then stare at my bookshelf for about 5 minutes waiting for a book to jump out at me. I have nothing else to say now. This has been quite fun, I hope at least one person got some enjoyment out of reading this. If they actually read it. I'm just enjoying typing now because I painted my nails and I like seeing them typing. That makes absolutely no sense, but it is after midnight and I am clearly delirious even though I should be used to being up at this hour. You guys should see all of the spelling mistakes I've made because I've been too busy looking at my nails. There will probably be some left in, let's pretend I did that on purpose.
I'm really going now.
Or am I?
Now I'm going
