We love a good book tag when we’re short on blog post ideas.
I realized that if I don’t do tags immediately after getting tagged, I forget about them and they go into a pile of “could have been” posts of my blog, so now I am gonna do tags as soon as I get tagged and stop myself from being useless.
Get to Know Ya Book Tag is a book tag (
who would have thought?) focusing on specific questions that help you get to know the blogger a bit better, through books naturally. I really loved the questions so I am so excited to answer them all.
I was tagged by the loveliest human being and best book blogger of all time – May @ Forever and Everly (who you should check out like NOW)! Thanks for the tag, May! Let’s get into it!
My actual favorite book of all time is a Serbian book that was never translated and that none of you have heard about, but my OTHER favorite is:
I loved A Little Life so much. No book has left such a profound impact on me and haunted my dreams like it did. I think about it to this day, and I remember that I could not pick another book FOR A MONTH after I finished it. The way Yanagihara writes characters and relationships just left such an impact on me, and her book is a perfect example of what I look for in books – deep, detailed character and relationship studies. I am still scared to reread this one, but one day I hopefully will.
The year is 2014. I have just finished high school. I have the longest summer of my life ahead of me. My favorite book (other than the mentioned Serbian book) is… probably Harry Potter.
It’s just a series that has a special place in my heart and before I got into blogging, it was my go-to read, like once every two months.
I read and love a lot of series, so I want you to know that this was very hard to answer, but it has to be:
I cannot explain how deeply I am attached to the characters in this series. I know that it has flaws, I KNOW. But I love these characters as if they were real people and my friends and no author or book has managed to replicate that feeling for me. I genuinely miss these characters when I am reading other stuff. It’s scary.
I just finished my reread of…
I LOVED IT. It was everything I wanted – it gave me all the warm, nostalgic feelings and being in Percy’s head again was great. I LOVE HIM. Also, him and Annabeth are my OG OTP, so the reread provided all of the stuff I needed from it. I am super excited to continue on with my Riordan reread now!
The original question was about poetry but I almost NEVER read poetry, so I am switching to comics, since I read lots of those. My latest read was…
Die Volume 1: Fantasy Heartbreaker! Gillen did my favorite comic series of all time The Wicked + the Divine, so I knew I was gonna like this, but I had no idea how much! If you like tabletop RPGs and just fantasy games in general (and if you love the cult classic Jumanji), this is the comic for you! The story is spectacular and the art so pretty. Highly recommended!
This is really hard, because I think every book I’ve loved over the years has influenced my life, but I think one that made me into the reader I am today is probably…
This book really got me into blogging and the online book community and it really made me fall in love with YA. So it was pretty important for me in the long run. And obviously A Little Life. Also, Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky really made me question life and morality and people in general. So that one too.
I don’t want to be repetitive but I really rarely cry to books. Or just in life in general. So my answer for this is still probably A Little Life. That book ruined me. Another book that made me cry, the silent, painful tears is…
I adore Beartown to bits. The characters and the themes explored in here are just so important and I loved this book with my whole heart.
Okay, both of these are recents and make me so happy and are generally super funny:
Red, White and Royal Blue was so genuinely funny, and I am already desperate to reread it. Gideon is darker and grittier (obviously) but it’s also supremely funny and just top-notch. Make sure it’s on your preorder list.
I have no clue. I don’t remember any specific book related dreams, and yet I feel that whatever book I am currently reading creeps into my dreams, so I don’t know.
Fun fact: I almost NEVER dnf books. I just push through anything and then review accordingly. I just have a fear of missing out if I don’t finish a book, because what if it gets good? It will haunt me. My one dnf of the year is…
I love Mariana Zapata’s books but this one did nothing for me, even after 210 pages, so I just gave up. Romances are a lot easier for me to abandon because I know how it will end so I am good with not finishing. But like please read From Lukov, With Love by Mariana Zapata.
I have a whole post about this HERE, but like there’s no contest:
I might puke from excitement as soon as I get this into my hands. BUT THIS COVER REALLY AIN’T IT.
Let me know your answers to some of this questions – what’s your FAVORITE book of all time? And your last dnf? I’d love to know!
Come hang out with me:
