Hello everyone and happy Thursday!
I was looking for new tags to do, and I stumbled upon the Friends tag, and I decided that I had to join in on the fun because who doesn’t love Friends?
This tag was created by Steph at alittlebutalot 😊
Ross: Seems harmless, but problematic – Name a book you had problems with:
For this question, I’m going to pick The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I had so many problems with this book and they almost all come from my strong dislike of the main character Monty, who I found incredibly annoying.
Monica: neat and tidy – Name a book/series that ends satisfyingly
Confession time! I have serious commitment issues when it comes to finishing series. It’s so bad that I don’t remember the last time I finished reading a series. This means that I’m going to pick Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling because I finished it and because I loved it.
Chandler: funny and relatable – Name a firm fave
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams is one of my favourite books. It’s funny and quirky, and BooksAre42 is a reference to it. It’s a book that I reread every few years, and I love it every time I do.
Phoebe: reliable and friendly – An author you always rely on
There are so many authors that I love, but I’m going to pick Terry Fallis for this question. After I read The Best Laid Plans, I went out and read everything else Terry Fallis had written. All of his books have made me laugh and I appreciate his different storylines and his sense of humour.
Rachel: she grows on you over time – Name a book/series that’s grown on you over time
I’ve read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee three times now, and every time I read it, I end up appreciating it a little bit more.
Joey: looks good on the outside – A book whose cover is better than its contents
Caraval by Stephanie Garber was a total cover buy for me, and unfortunately, the book didn’t live up to the hype. I’m a little fuzzy on the details, but I remember not being a huge fan of Caraval when I read it, and it was probably because I wasn’t too thrilled with the main character. Despite all of this, I cover bought Legendary, and hopefully, I like it more than Caraval.
Gunther: always there, always ignored – A book you’ve had on your TBR forever
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling has been sitting unread on my shelf forever. I bought this book because it was Rowling’s first book after Harry Potter and I just haven’t gotten around to it though. I can’t even say that the reason why I haven’t read it is that I don’t want the magic of Harry Potter to die, because I’ve read most of the Cormoran Strike books and ended up enjoying them.
Carol and Susan: keeping it diverse – An LGBT+ book you love/hate/wanna read
I’m going to cheat and pick two books for this question. The first book I’m picking is Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, which is a book that I read and loved. The second book that I’m picking is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell who is a book that I need to read, especially because I loved Fangirl.
I tag Realms of My Mind and anyone else who wants to join in on the fun!
