I found this book tag and it instantly became my choice for my Book Tag Thursday post this week! School is back in session–so what better time to do a Back to School Book Tag? It just so happens my brain is utterly fried after just one week of classes. The questions consist of/relate to various subjects in school. Throwing it out there–thank goodness I am finished with all of these, and they are currently in my past. I would love a million English classes over one Math or History class. No. Thank. You.
Without further ado:
English/Language Arts – Name your favorite author’s (or books) writing style
I have said it before and I most likely will say it again, LAUREN OLIVER. Her language is phenomenal no matter what book she writes. Flawless.
Honorable Mention: J.K. Rowling (Because, come on?)
Math – A book that made you frustrated!
I’m going to generalize and go with every ending to a series that I adored all the way up to the final book. How frustrating is it to make it to the end of a series you loved and then they fall flat? Not that the endings per say were bad, just that the journey to the end was not my favorite.
Couple examples: The Death Cure (The Maze Runner Series), Allegiant (The Divergent Trilogy), and/or Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga)
Science – A book that really made you think or question things.
One of my new favorites from my recently read pile…Unwind by: Neal Shusterman. This book tackles the subject of Abortion in a completely new light. My mind was blown. It’s eerie and a little creepy but completely opens your eyes. Great read.
Social Studies/History – Your favorite book from a different time period.
I am loving the Infernal Devices by: Cassandra Clare. I thought I loved Mortal Instruments, but there is no comparison. I’ve never loved the 1800s more!
Art – Your favorite book with pictures.
Is this a question? Winnie the Pooh by: A.A. Milne is GORGEOUS. No matter what book in the series, I could just stare for days.
Drama – A book you would love to see turned into a movie.
Before I Fall by: Lauren Oliver, although it gets a bit graphic (not to mention quite a bit of language) if it were cleaned up, I think it would be fabulous. Sam relives the same day over and over, in a Groundhog Day sort of manner. But it’s an incredible take on suicide and how our actions affect others.
Music/Band – Name a character you think (or know) would have the same musical taste as you.
I’m going with Owen from Sarah Dessen’s Just Listen, I think we could both recommend some great music to each other. As I am an avid 80s Rock listener, I think he would enjoy some of my choices!
Lunch – A food from a book you would love to try.
I have heard PHENOMENAL things about Colleen Hoover’s books, and I have not read a single one them. I’m thinking Hopeless would be a good start? If you have a favorite, please let me know!
[I obviously missed the food section of this question the first time through–albeit my new answer has GOT to be any and all of the feasts that are included throughout Harry Potter. Are they not mouthwatering?!]
Bus Ride Home – A book or author that is relaxing.
I just read It’s A Mall World After All by: Janette Rallison, and I have to say it was hilarious and heartfelt at the same time. Definitely a break from my series and emotionally heavy books that have been plaguing my read pile.
Extra Credit – A book someone else told you to read and you ended up enjoying it.
If I Stay by: Gayle Forman — This one is pretty general because EVERYONE was talking about how much they enjoyed it, so I picked it up last year before I saw the movie. I was NOT disappointed. This is a great read!
