I saw this tag on Bliss Book Blog, and being a JLaw fan myself I had to do it as April’s tag. Now, where’s the pizza?!
1. Swearing Off Social Media: a book you refused to read
Gone by Michael Grant
I read over 50% of this appallingly terrible book, but I eventally decided that life’s too short to read bad books.
2. The Oscar Trip: a book/series that hit a snag
Divergent by Veronica Roth
If it were a stand-alone novel, with the ends tied up a little, it would’ve been great. Insurgent suffered from second-book-syndrome, and I’ve as yet felt obliged to pick up Allegiant.
3. The Viral Taylor Swift Photobomb at the Golden Globes: a book/series you didn’t know would get so popular
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
I read the first two books in 2012 when the series was exploding in popularity – literally 50% of the people reading by the pool on holiday that summer were reading one of the books. I’m happy that they had such an impact on making people actually read a book!
4. Work with David O. Russell: dysfunctional character you can’t help but love
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (Edward Cullen)
I could use pretty much every character from the series for this prompt, but Edward has some serious obsession issues, yet I love his dedication and loyalty.
5. Mystique: a villain who thinks they’re doing what’s right
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer (Aro)
Despite being a villain, Aro believes in upholding the one crucial vampire law: protecting their species from humankind. As a result, I can’t really hate him.
6. Bradley Cooper: what author do you find yourself always coming back to
Jack Reacher by Lee Child
I absolutely love the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child, and with 20 novels and counting, there is always a new adventure to be had.
7. Spoiled for Homeland on National Television: a plot line you were spoiled for
Looking For Alaska by John Green
I own the anniversary edition and there are a bunch of questions in the back which I flicked to, and there in bold was the spoiler. Brilliant.
8. The Hunger Games: favourite high profile series
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter has been a part of my life since I was seven and will forever be my favourite series!
9. Everyone’s Obsession with being her Best Friend: a character who’d make your ultimate best friend
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (Hermione Granger)
What slightly nerdy, 20-something female wouldn’t choose Hermione? We are basically the same person!
10. Everything she’s ever said: favourite comedic/snarky character
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Katniss Everdeen)
I love how Katniss interacts with everyone around her: she’s short-tempered and honest and stands up for her beliefs. She’s fiercely loyal to her few friends and family, and somehow everything she says, thinks and feels is snarky, in the best possible way.
