Hiya! In an effort to get myself on a semi-regular posting schedule, I’m going to start completing some tags on Tuesdays. I’ll probably alternate these with Top Ten Tuesdays, depending on which I like more that week. I see a lot of booktubers doing tag videos, and I want to join in by doing tags I like on my blog. Because I’m a newer blogger, I also thought this would be a great way for me readers to get to know me better!
Yesterday was the first day back at school for the district where I work, so this tag is perfect for my first one. The Back to School Tag was created by Jenny Unscripted on Youtube, but I originally saw it over on BooksandLala‘s channel.
Let’s get right into the questions:
English/Language Arts – Name your favorite author’s (or books) writing style
Meg Cabot! Meg is one of my favorite authors because I find her writing so relatable and funny. Definitely check out one of her books if you haven’t yet.
Math – A book that made you frustrated
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I hate unreliable narrators, and this book has two of them! Every time I reach the point in a book when an unreliable narrator is revealed, I want to throw the book across the room!
Science – A book that really made you think or question things.
Hate List by Jennifer Brown. Hate List is about a school shooting, told from the POV of the shooter’s girlfriend. It’s so interesting and powerful. I think it should be required reading for all secondary students.
Social Studies/History – Your favorite book from a different time period.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. RPO takes place in 2044. The whole world has gone to hell, and everyone spends most of their day in a virtual world, the OASIS. I love this dystopian world so much. There are tons of video game and 80s references throughout.
Art – Your favorite book with pictures.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Everything, Everything follows teenager Madeline, who is allergic to the world. The book is full of illustrations, lists, graphs, diary entries, and handwritten notes that make it such an enjoyable and fun read.
Drama – A book you would love to see turned into a movie.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. One of my favorite reads so far this year. The three trials would be so cool to see on screen.
Music/Band – Name a character you think (or know) would have the same musical taste as you.
I’m gonna go with Mel from Boy Band by Jacqueline E. Smith.
Lunch – A food from a book you would love to try.
Anything from the Harry Potter books! I’ve had chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans but I’d love to try others.
Bus Ride Home – A book or author that is relaxing.
For this one, I’m choosing Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I love love love this book and relate to Cath so much. It’s a comfort read for me!
Extra Credit – A book someone else told you to read and you ended up enjoying it.
My cousin read Something Real by Heather Demetrios this summer, and immediately handed it to me when he was finished and demanded I read it. I enjoyed it a lot and plan to check out more of her books in the future.
