Hello bookworms! How are you all? I hope you’re all doing fantastically.
This month has been a whirlwind so far for me. My mental and physical health took another turn for the worst which has taken up all of my time. I have only read one book so far – which is tragic for me! However, I feel as though I am on the mend and I’m reading again so it can only go up from here.
I’m here to bring you the Cliché Book Tag. I haven’t done a book tag in a while and I love doing them, they’re so enjoyable.
Here we go!
1. Actions Speak Louder Than Words: A Book That Wasn’t Or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie.
My answer for this question is going to be very, very controversial. It is the first book that came to mind and that is Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling. I am yet to read and finish this novel (I have actually DNFd this book before). It’s my least favourite of the whole series and I have only ever watched the film once.
2. The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side: A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I read the original series a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. However, I was content with how the series wrapped up and was not interested in reading the other books that have recently been released. This book series was such a cheesy cliché but I loved it. I’m such a sucker for a cute contemporary.
3. The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree: A Parent Child Relationship That You Love.
I adored the relationship between Starr and her Dad in The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. The relationship was so strong and was really refreshing to read about.
4. You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover: A Great Book That Needs A Better Cover.
There are so many books that deserve better covers. The ones that straight away came to mind were the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is one of my favourite series of all time and they deserve better covers!
5. You Can’t Please Everyone: A Book You Hate That Everyone Loves.
I really, really dislike Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I attempted to read this book twice and DNFd it both times just over halfway through. I just couldn’t get past the wording, storyline and the characters. I didn’t like it at all.
6. What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger: What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It?
The first book that come straight to mind is the book I read most recently; The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. It was such a powerful, important book which has made me feel so much more educated on WW2 and the effects of it. I am a massive history whizz and it was my favourite subject at school.
7. Love Is Blind: A Book With A Disabled Character Or Actual Blind Love.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I’m unsure as to whether the characters count as “disabled” but again, it was the first book that come to mind. This book is one of my favourites and I still reread it often. It breaks my heart every single time.
8. Ignorance Is Bliss: A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It.
The Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. To be honest, I have admitted it before but I don’t like to bring it up often because of the hype surrounding it. It has such loyal fans and it scares me! But I didn’t like these books at all.
9. There Is No Time Like The Present: What Is Your Favourite Contemporary Book?
My favourite contemporaries are any by Jennifer L. Armentrout. If I had to pick a favourite it’d definitely be Fall With Me. Her contemporaries have some really dark elements to them which I like.
10. Better Safe Than Sorry: A Book You Don’t Want To Read In Case It’s Bad.
A book that I’m scared to read just in case it’s bad is The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty. This book is very hyped up and has some very loyal fans. I am planning on reading it soon but am very worried just in case I don’t like it.
There you have it! That was the Cliché Book Tag. I love doing tags, they’re so much fun! I tag anyone who wants to do it ☺️
Thank you for reading,
