I know that Pokemon Go is pretty much dead and no one plays it anymore, but I started playing it again a few days ago because the second generation Pokemon have been released and I want a Cyndaquil.
I came across this book tag on the blog Read At Midnight and thought it looked fun, so I’m gonna do it! Let’s go!
The book that started my love for reading would be The Suitcase Kid by Jacqueline Wilson. We had to read it for a class at school and I loved it so much. I ended up reading the entire Jacqueline Wilson collection in the school’s library.
The answer to this had always been Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, but it turns out that I read a children’s, abridged version of it, so now I have to read the full version before I can decide whether this is still my favourite classic.
In case it won’t be, then I’ll say Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I don’t enjoy many classics, but I had to read this for college and university, however, I still really liked it.
Urgh, I hate Zubats. Sad to say this but I think that it would have to be The Hunger Games trilogy. I loved these books. I brought the second and third book the day of their releases and they are the only books I’ve ever read through in one sitting. I was really exicted when they announced the films, but of course, other humans have to ruin things. Suddenly, everyone was all over these books. Friends that didn’t wanna read the books were suddenly all over them because of the films. The films also watered down a lot of the violence and it just wasn’t the same. I still haven’t watched the last Mockingjay film yet…
Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine is a vampire book that came out when Twilight was everywhere. Twilight had ruined vampires for a lot of people and when I got this book for Christmas I wasn’t expecting much, but it proved me wrong and I really loved it. Midnight Alley is the third book in The Morganville Vampires series and I ended up buying the first two books and then the rest of the series up until book eight. There are fifteen books in total and I’ve yet to work up the commitment need to finish the entire series. But the first three books are still some of my favourite books.
The A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I’ve read the first book, but even that took me a month or two. I would love to read them all before the final book comes out (whenever that may be) just so I can be part of the hype, but I think it’s going to take me a while due to how big these books are.
I’ve already said The Hunger Games so I don’t want to use those books again. I did spent an entire night reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix once. Even though this book was probably the worst book in the series, it’s the only Harry Potter book that has made me cry. That’s right, I didn’t even cry at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The characters I want to get together in books never actually get together so I’m never happy. Harry/Hermonie – never happened. Katniss/Gale – never happened. Mikael/Lisbeth – never happened. I got what I wanted in One Day by David Nicholls, but it ends up with a sad ending. CAN’T WIN. The characters that I wanted to get together in the Cathy Vickers Trilogy eventually do in the last book, so that book is on my favourites shelf purely because I finally got what I wanted.
Despite the last two books of the trilogy being shit, Divergent was a really good book. I read that within a day or two. It was so quick and easy to get through and I love books that I can just binge on!
Even though I have yet to finish the series, I know that there’s quiet a few novellas for The Morganville Vampires series. I really want to read them but I’m not letting myself until I finish the series!
I know that there’s a new series of spin-off books for the Millenium series, and while I love the orignal three, I’m not sure how good these spin-off ones are going to be.
I don’t know what I was expecting when I read Mice by Gordon Reece, but it turned out to be a really good book! It’s about a mother and daughter who live in isolation, in a seculded cottage, when an intruder disturbs their peace and the daughter snaps. I normally don’t enjoy crime books, but this one was great. It’s been a few years since I read it, but it’s stuck with me!
I still haven’t read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone seires, but I’ve seen it been hyped up. I really want to read it, but I’m worried that it’s been hyped up a bit too much.
I would love to own a first edition of Carrie by Stephen King. It’s the first book of his that made me want to get into his writing. The first edition looks so cool, but it’s like seven grand, and I ain’t about spending that much money. I recently found a cool retro-looking version of Carrie, anyway, so that will do!
I’ve already read it now, but The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was being hyped up and I really wanted to read it, and it didn’t dissapoint. It was really good and I would like to read more of her books when they are eventually released!
I don’t really have an all-time favourite author now, but back in the day, I would buy anything with Jacquline Wilson’s name on it. I quite sad that I grew out of her books because I really loved them, and I’m sure her new ones are still going strong!
There’s not really any books I’m waiting on, at the minute. I’m just gonna jump on the bandwagon and say The Winds of Winter. The TV show has caught up to the books now, and everyone is waiting on this book. I just want to know who gets the throne in the end!
Thanks for reading! This tag was created by Read At Midnight. I’m not going to tag anyone to do this as Pokemon Go is old news now. But if you do this tag or have done it, let me know!
