So, I’ve been listening to the MAMMA MIA 2 soundtrack pretty much non-stop since the movie came out. So I was kind impossible for me to not do this tag once I found it. This tag was created by Ashley @ ashleyoutpaged, and per usual, I wasn’t tagged. But….HERE I GO AGAIN!!!
1. when i kissed the teacher/name a book with a shocking plot twist
Gonna have to agree with Ashley and say Godsgrave by: Jay Kristoff. All throughout this book, things would change direction at the last minute. Eventually, you decide to quit being surprised, but it doesn’t work. Each twist leaves you just as shook as the first. This series really is just, so freakin’ good y’all.
2. waterloo/name a book you’re positive you’ll be in love with
Oooh, I’m gonna go with Wicked Saints by: Emily A. Duncan. The buzz about this book is NO JOKE. Everyone is selling their left kidney to get an ARC of this thing, and I can understand why. The premise sounds so dark, and thrilling, and complex. I can’t wait to get my hands on this. I really think I’m gonna adore it.
3. why did it have to be me/name a book you went to to get over a reading slump
I’ve gotta go with The Kate Daniels books by: Illona Andrews. Paranormal-romance is always my goto when I’m in a reading slump. They’re so quick, and fun, and easy to get through. And this series has really become another one that I count on to get me back into the swing of reading.
4. i have a dream/name a book character that inspires you
I’m gonna have to go with a character I just recently met, and that’s Paul from Christ in Concrete by: Pietro Di Donato. Paul really was such an inspiring character to follow. At such a young age he sacrificed so much to support his family, and never backed down. He was a dollface.
5. andante andante/name your current read
I’m currently reading The Men with the Pink Triangle by: Heinz Heger. I mentioned in my Reading Resolutions post, which you can check out here, that I wanted to read more historical non-fiction, and this book has been on my TBR for the longest time. I’m really glad that I’m diving into this part of history that I’m not that versed in.
6. knowing me, knowing you/name a book you had to break up with and dnf
Have to go with The Road by: Comac McCarthy. This was one of the books I was supposed to read for a class last year, but I just couldn’t do it. I’m a bad girl, I know. But, last year was really hard for me, and I wasn’t in a good headspace, and this book was just really bleak, and depressing. It wasn’t good for me. So, I practiced some self-care and DNF’d it. Mental health is more imporant than grades. And I got an A anyway, so…
7. mamma mia/name a book you recently read again
I haven’t reread any books lately! Which really makes me sad. But, I’m so busy I really can’t justify it. I do plan on rereading The Book Thief by: Markus Zusak in March, as is my tradition, so there’s that.
8. dancing queen/name a book that made you want to dance around the room
I’m gonna have to go with The Sun and Her Flowers by: Rupi Kaur. This book just made me feel so seen, and validated. It really made me so happy, even though it was reminding me of some really hard things. If you want to hear more of my thoughts on this book, you can check out my full review here.
9. super trouper/name a series you haven’t finished due to it’s intimidating size
The Dark Hunters series by: Sherrilyn Kenyon. Y’all, I’m so far behind in these books, it’s not even funny. And I’ve forgotten so much from the previous books, that I’d have to reread them. And that’s like, over 30 books. So…yea, I’ve been putting this off for a while. Maybe after I graduate?
That’s it! That’s it for this tag! That was quick and fun, which is my favorite kind of tag. But, what about y’all? How would you have answered any of these questions? Do you agree with my answers? What’s your favorite MAMMA MIA song? Let me know down in the comments!
