It’s time for a tag, everyone! A big thanks to Revolution for Breakfast for tagging me! Definitely go visit her awesome blog!
This tag is all about mixing social media and books together. Let’s get started!
One of my favorite books of all time is The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place by E.L. Konigsburg, but I don’t think I actually know of anyone else who has read it. I bought my first copy of this book from a book fair back in third grade, and I have read it countless times since. It’s one of those timeless, feel-good, summertime stories that make me so happy. I wish more people would read this book!
For this I’m going to have to go with More Than This by Patrick Ness. One of my coworkers recommended this to me because there were so many great plot twists, and I’m so glad she did! I had never read anything by Patrick Ness before so I wouldn’t have necessarily picked out this book to read on my own. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes dystopian stories, science fiction, or the YA genre in general!
Since I’m not a Booktube, I’m going to replace it with blogging. It’s hard to think of a book I read before I started blogging because I’ve been doing it for so long (or, at least it seems like I have!). I think I’m going to have to go with the Gone series by Michael Grant. I first started this series with a lunchtime book club back when I was in seventh grade, and I absolutely loved it. I actually got to meet Michael Grant in person, which was awesome!
My pick for this one is Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. This may seem kind of strange considering I gave this book 4 out of 5 smileys, but it’s a feeling I have. I did enjoy this book the first time around, but I just don’t think that I would choose to pick up again. Usually when I reread books it’s to admire the author’s writing, try to understand a complicated part more, or to simply be in the world of the characters for a little longer. None of these things really apply to this novel, especially since I didn’t really connect with any of the characters all that much.
THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING BY ROBYN SCHNEIDER. Definitely. I mean, look at it. I love the simplicity of it and the way the blue lettering stands out from the yellow background. I absolutely adore the font as well. It’s such a cheery, bright cover!
I actually had this same thought while reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It would make such an amazing movie! There’s plenty of action, lots of opportunities for awesome special effects, and even an adorable romance. I think there would be a wide audience spectrum as well, because it could appeal to both young adults and adults. Movie producers, get your act together and turn this into a movie pronto!
This category definitely has to go to one of my favorite books of all time, Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I am just in love with all of these characters, and I think it would be so amazing if I could have a conversation with them all. What would Jonah Griggs be like in real life? Would Raffy be as wise and kind as I have imagined she is? Would Chaz be sarcastic and funny like he is in the book? What would talking to Taylor be like? Oh, that would be so awesome!
This was such a fun tag!! Again, a big thanks to Revolution for Breakfast who tagged me!
