Going to start a series of book tags with this strange one I saw on Bookish Queen Blog – hope it’s fun for me to write, for you to read and later pass on!
1. The Classics: A classic book that still fits into YA literature
A question to all of you: do we already consider Harry Potter to be a classic? If we still do not, we will very soon indeed.
But currently… it could be Oliver Twist, being a touching, heart-warming book.
2. The Ninth Doctor: A book you feel is very underrated
Hard to think of any, ’cause I’ve just realised that I have always read critically acclaimed books. But since this requires an answer, I think all the unpublished novels written by my friends, which I take so much pleasure in reading, require a genuine public recognition which is still not there 🙂
3. David Tennant: A book or series that was hard to say goodbye to when it ended
Definitely Hunger Games. And probably Caster Chronicles, too. I mean, the characters of these series became a family to me. I could not cope with losing the further track of their lives.
4. Matt Smith: A book that made you smile
I generally tend to read books that make me cry, haha, therefore the question requires some deep reflection… um, maybe Anne of Green Gables, one of my favourite books during the teenage years.
5. Rose and Ten: One of your ships that never sailed
If this means a book that I intended to read, even started it, but then abandoned, then it is Les Miserables. Yes. Sadly. It hasn’t worked out. This is why my TBR list is going to differ a lot from the one I make at the end of February – on the books that I’ll have actually read. I don’t know. It was just so heavy, depressing and hard to follow… probably I do not understand something. Hugo fans are sure to unsubsribe My English Paradise for sure, I am sorry to have disappointed you. But first please let me know in the comment section what you love about this book – it will help me to be more patient next time I decide to read it once more. Hopefully till the end.
6. Weeping Angel: A book that you blinked and it was over
Twilight was the book I read fastest. I just couldn’t stop. But the strange thing is – I forgot what it was all about as soon as I closed it. Maybe reading books that fast is not good at all – they vanish from your memory at once.
7. Daleks: A book you want to exterminate
Oh no, I am not going to answer this, it would resemble censorship if I did.
8. Bowties Are Cool: A bandwagon you jumped on early
Cannot think of such – I am always late, and always behind the trends…
9. Run you clever boy, and remember: A book with an awesome plot twist that you didn’t see coming
Probably Isabella’s running away with Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights was a turn I didn’t expect.
10. Raxacoricofallapatorius: A book with hard to pronounce names or titles
If I was a fan of fantasy, I would find this question easy to answer, but sadly I’m not, so I wait for your answers in the comment section – recommend a good book to me, but with hard-pronounceable title and names, please 🙂
11. The T.A.R.D.I.S: A book that took you back in time
Oh, there are too many of them, because I tend to read classics, and they are all taking me back in time – Vanity Fair, Sense and Sensibility, Gone with the Wind… (three dots hiding dozens more)
Any volunteers to complete the tag? Feel free to join the book tags marathon, so that the we spread the popularity of reading across this strongly cinema-Internet-technological world!
