Hey Bookworms!! We’re back today with a fun tag! Thanks to Katie @NeverNotReading for tagging us in this one! Let’s get started!
Ah, healthy food. It’s deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards, but, um, isn’t really your thing.
Dawyln: I’ll go with The Catcher in the Rye by: J.D. Salinger. This is a classic that is commonly required reading and was for me in high school. I wasn’t feeling this one when I read it, though I’d like to reread it to see how I feel about it now.
Krista: A book that’s well appreciated that just wasn’t for me is Gone Girl by: Gillian Flynn. I think the story is really interesting, and I enjoyed the movie. However, I tried to read the book and just couldn’t get into it. It wasn’t for me at the time. Maybe I would feel differently about it now, who knows?
This is a book you’d recommend to absolutely everyone.
Dawlyn: There are so many that I could go with for this one but I’ll pick a recent read: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-TIme Indian by: Sherman Alexie. I feel like anyone could take something away from this story.
Krista: I’m going to go with The Hate U Give by: Angie Thomas. I know we talk about this book a lot on our blog, but that’s because it’s just so hard not to! This book is amazing! It’s such an important read, and I just genuinely believe everyone should read this book.
Why do these exist?
Dawlyn: The F It List by: Julie Halpern. I really did not like this book at all.
Krista: Tiger’s Curse by: Colleen Houck. I read this book at the beginning of the year. I think the writing was pretty well done and there were some cool aspects about the story. However, I have serious issues with the main character and think that the whole concept of her being the MC for this story is extremely problematic. For that reason, I’m just kind of like, why is this book a thing?
Awwww, this novel had the best romance!
Dawlyn: Isla and Josh from Isla and the Happily Ever After by: Stephanie Perkins. They’re my favorite couple in this series!
Krista: When Dimple Met Rishi by: Sandhya Menon. I love these two, they are so adorable!
Eeek! You made sure to check under the bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.
Dawlyn: The Shining by: Stephen King. This is the only horror book I’ve attempted reading and though II never actually finished it, I would like to! What I did read, I remember enjoying what i did read, and I liked the movie. I don’t typically like or feel scared by horror movies, so I wouldn’t say I was scared by the book or the movie but it was definitely suspenseful.
Krista: There’s Someone Inside Your House by: Stephanie Perkins. This book wasn’t horribly scary, but it was definitely creepy. It gave me major Scream vibes, which I loved!
This took you forever to get through, but hey! You did it!
Dawlyn: As I Lay Dying by: William Faulkner. This was required summer reading for me in high school. I didn’t hate it, but i didn’t love it and it took me all summer to get through.
Krista: A Court of Thorns and Roses by: Sarah J. Mass. This book took me awhile to get through. I did really enjoy it, but I don’t think I loved it quite as much as everyone else seems to. I’m definitely going to continue on with the series!
Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do).
Dawlyn: Twilight by: Stephenie Meyer. I now have many problems with this series, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I was OBSESSED with it in middle and high school.
Krista: I agree with Dawlyn! I was definitely obsessed with Twilight and it helped me get back into reading after a bit of a slump!
