Hello readers!! Today I was nominated for the Candy Book Tag, by Eva @BrilliantlyBookish, who also let me borrow her beautiful graphic designs for this tag! Thank you Eva; please visit her fabulous blog! Also, I know I haven’t been blogging for almost the past two weeks, because I had no wifi available. Worst two weeks of my LIFE. No not really, I was on vacation hehe.
This might sound ridiculous but To See A Watchman. If you don’t know, it was written before To Kill A Mockingbird, except that her sister didn’t like the book. Harper published it after her sister passed away, and therefore it is now considered a sequel to most people. It probably does have almost, or just as much meaning as TKAM, but I couldn’t even bring myself to finishing it.
Divergent by Veronica Roth. This book was my favorite a long time ago when I wasn’t exposed to any not-extremely-hyped-over YA. Because it’s so popular though, everyone loves it of course, and if you haven’t read it yet, your missing out in a way. Even if you didn’t end up enjoying it, the book is just such a big deal in the YA world, you’ll be glad you did read it.
The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman. I had to read this book for school, and it felt repetitive and bored me. It had the lamest love triangle, and to make it worse, the characters were simply a pain in the neck clueless. The idea of the book was fine, but the way it was put together is definitely not preferable. Contrarily, I’m reading Scythe, which is by the same author, and it’s absolutely amazing. Given this, I think that Shusterman’s writing is good, but I just did’t like the characters.
I’m not big on contemporary novels, so I’d have to say Lady Midnight. I just finished it on Wednesday, and let’s just say it’s AMAZING. All the Morgan Matson books are really good too, my favorite being The Unexpected Everything. It’s one of the only books where I actually liked ALL the characters haha.
Oh my, another genre I don’t read very often. The last horror novel I read was Project Seventeen, which was actually pretty spooky. It is about a scandalous little group of high schoolers who wish to camp out at an old asylum, before it gets knocked down. As you may guess, the asylum is super haunted, and it’s full of unsettling ghosts, disturbing dolls, etc.
This would have to be the Matched trilogy. In my opinion, the book moved along super slow, and nothing drastic happened until the end. If the ending was as exciting as it was, I would have never finished it. I’m definitely glad I did though; I’d feel like I was missing out if I hadn’t, even if I didn’t love the book.
This would be The Witches by Roald Dahl, even though the cover is a little weird. I first read it when I was about 9 maybe, and I found it fascinating…It attracted my attention, and so I read the book quickly after that. I loved the story of course; it is such a funny book, and I recommend that everyone should read it.
Ah, I almost forgot to tag people! I tag:
What’s your favorite candy?
