I’m coming back at you today with the cliché book tag! I was tagged by the amazing Amber @ Step Into A Book World– definitely check her blog out, her answers are really interesting and her posts are really cool! I don’t really know who created this tag (I followed the thread of tags but it leads nowhere…), but if you find out, please let me know! I’ll add their link here! Without further ado, let’s get right into it!
Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
A Book That Wasn’t Or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie.
My answer here will have to be Harry Potter- yes, I’m still bitter that they didn’t include the entire Neville arc and that they had him go from being all but a Squib to Accio Abs! in the movie without providing any freaking evidence or back story… Also, how could they not add the iconic McGonagall moment? You know the one. The ‘Have a biscuit, Potter’ one.
The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side.
A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story.
I’ll have to either go with the Amber’s answer and say ACOTAR or try to think of something else and go with… The Picture of Dorian Gray? I can’t really find a more appropriate title for this one, and I spent roughly 10 minutes searching through my bookshelves. Oh, I guess The Foxhole Court works here as well? Neil kinda goes from emotional rags to emotional riches… I don’t know, y’all. If you have a better answer make sure to leave it in the comments.
The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree.
A Parent Child Relationship That You Love
Here, my answer is a definite The Book Thief. The relationship between Liesel and her dad just… Oh my lord, I’m getting emotional.
You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover.
A Great Book That Needs A Better Cover.
My answer here will have to be They Both Die At The End, but only because I kinda hate the copy of the book that I’ve read. It already has a better cover, the one with Rufus and Mateo walking at night. I’m emotional again.
Oh, and Deception Point would be a good example too, I guess? I don’t really know, y’all.
You Can’t Please Everyone.
A Book You Hate That Everyone Loves.
I’m so sorry to say this, but for me, that book is All The Bright Places. Everyone seems to love it and I just!! Can’t! I tried loving it but it just wasn’t for me.
What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger.
What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It.
I cannot possibly be expected to only have one answer for this one. Take your pick: Note to Self, Happiness, How To Be A Bawse and I Am Malala.
Love Is Blind.
A Book With A Disabled Character Or Actual Blind Love.
I think Nakata from Murakami’s Kafka On The Shore might fall under the ‘disabled’ category? I hope I’m not wrong. He’s still a badass character. I freakin’ adore Nakata, man. (Psst, my latest review is on this book! Check it out here.)
Ignorance Is Bliss.
A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It.
Okay so… please don’t come after me…. but I’ll have to go with The Mortal Instruments. I’m stuck on the third book… I will be pushing through the series, mainly because of Malec (Magnus in particular, I love him a lot) but I’m definitely… not living for it.
There Is No Time Like The Present.
What Is Your Favorite Contemporary Book?
Honestly, how do you expect me to have only one answer for questions like these? I’m not even gonna try listing books, I’ll give you my fav authors: Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Nicola Yoon.
Better Safe Than Sorry.
A Book You Don’t Want To Read In Case It’s Bad.
My answer here will have to be: every classic ever. I’m just…. terrified by this point. I’ve been dabbling more and more with reading classics and I’m slowly getting there, but I still have this built-in fear that all of them will turn out to be Dickens and would easily be able to describe a street lamp over like, 10 pages.
