Birthday Book Tag


I am doing things a bit differently this time around as, as you can see, this week's Tag Time is not on Wednesday but on a Thursday. That is because I am going to be doing the 'birthday book tag', and today is my actual birthday! 🎉🎉


I found this on Zezee with Books, but credit goes to whoever created this.


Here we go!


 

BIRTHDAY CAKE: A BOOK WITH A PLOT THAT SEEMS CLICHE, BUT YOU ADORE IT ANYWAY


Nothing really comes to mind when I think of cliché, since the word cliché screams romance to me, and I don't read much romance. The only thing I can think of is Vampires Never Get Old because I am sure that a lot of people are past vampires like how I am past dystopian books. As the title suggests though, vampires will never get old for me.



PARTY GUESTS: YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASE FOR THIS YEAR


I did a post about my most anticipated book for the year, but if I were to pick just one, I would go with A Curse of Shadows. I was surprised by how much I liked the first book in this series, and I immediately wanted book two. Luckily for me, it is coming out this year so I don't have to wait much longer to read it.



BIRTHDAY PRESENTS: A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU WITH HOW MUCH YOU LOVED IT


I usually end up repeating the same answer for this question, because I only have a handful of books that I didn't think I would like but loved. Tokyo Revengers and Miracle Creek always come to mind first, but I am going to go with a book I haven't talked about much - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.


This book took me two tries because I put it down the first time. I ended up watching the movie instead, loved it and re-watched it several times in two days, and then picked the book up again and could appreciate it more.



"HAPPY BIRTHDAY" SONG: A BOOK THAT CERTAINLY DESERVED ALL THE HYPE IT GOT



You never know what you are going to get when it comes to hyped books; either you agree with it or can't see why everyone liked it. Anything high fantasy would probably work for this question, so I am going to go with Before They Are Hanged. The second novel in The First Law series, this book didn't even have to do much to be good.



HAPPY MUSIC: A BOOK WITH SOME VERY BEAUTIFUL AND TRULY MEMORABLE QUOTES


While they may not be the most beautiful quotes ever, this book had tons of quotes that stuck with me. Lines like “I’m under absolutely no obligation to make sense to you” or “Don't ignore half of me so you can fit me into a box. Don't do that” really have an impact on the reader. Evelyn Hugo sure was one hell of a main character.



GETTING OLDER: A BOOK THAT YOU READ A LONG TIME AGO, BUT YOU THINK WOULD APPRECIATE MORE IF YOU READ IT AS A MORE MATURE READER


Honestly, any book that school made you read in Elementary and Highschool. Anything you have to read for school automatically makes the book less interesting because you are not reading it out of your own volition. I think I am going to go with Pride and Prejudice. I remember distinctly not liking it in Highschool because of how bland it was, and because classics aren't easy to read when you are younger.



SWEET BIRTHDAY MEMORIES: A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU INCREDIBLY HAPPY DURING A SAD OR DEMANDING PERIOD OF YOUR LIFE


Books that make me feel all fuzzy inside usually end up being webcomics or manga because it is easier to be impacted by something you can visually see. Most recently, and I mean really recently because I just finished this a couple of days ago, that would be Horimiya. This was just a sweet story that made me feel all giggly when I was done.
