Thanks so much to Sophia Ismaa Writes for tagging me! She’s just started a new tag called “5 Things I Like About Myself” where you list five things that you like about yourself. I think it’s just so nice and so positive. I’m going to do this tag soon and I want to spread the love so if you want to be tagged, please comment with a link to your blog on this post.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
A Book That Wasn’t Or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie.
I rarely ever watch the movie after reading the book. The only one I can think of is Giver, but I equally despised the book and movie.
The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side.
A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story.
I can’t really talk about why this fits into the category without giving away spoilers, but this is one of my favorite books. I love the characters. Everyone, go read it.
The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree.
A Parent-Child Relationship That You Love
Scout and Atticus’s relationship is adorable. I read mostly fantasy, and a lot of those have absent parents, so this was a harder category to choose for.
I could’ve gone with Keeper of the Lost Cities, too, but I felt that the category would be more appreciated if I picked a book you guys have (probably) heard about.
You Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover
A Great Book That Needs A Better Cover
I’m currently reading this book, and it’s been lovely so far. But seriously, that cover sucks. Just ugh. Look at the color scheme! They do have a different version with a much better cover, so I’m glad they figured out that this one kinda sucks.
You Can’t Please Everyone
A Book You Hate That Everyone Loves
I could’ve gone with Giver, but I also despise Ready Player One. *Shrugs*
Reasons I despise Ready Player One
- The characters weren’t developed
- The characters weren’t interesting
- The main character was insufferable
- The plot was bland
- I didn’t get most of the references and it was written like it expected me to
- The plot
- I don’t even like the concept
- It should’ve gone into more detail about the apocalypse. The beginning where it was described is probably my favorite part.
- The ending was too neat
- The characters
- It wasn’t thrilling
- I didn’t like the writing style. It was tell, not show. It didn’t go into much depth with the descriptions and it was hard to imagine things properly.

What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It.
Let’s make a list!
Love is Blind.
A Book With A Disabled Main Character Or Actual Blind Love
The main character, Aza, has severe OCD.
It’s a lovely book. I highly recommend it.
Ignorance Is Bliss.
A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It.
This series is so close to me as it was my introduction to the wonderful world of YA. I love Red Queen and it was one of my favorite books, but the series quickly went downhill and it definitely has a lot of flaws. But I’m going to pretend it’s good.
Also, War Storm just came out yesterday! Squeeeee. I apologize for my squealing. Sadly, I won’t be able to read it until June, or maybe even July. *Sobs*
