It’s that time of year bookworms! Back to school is an exciting time of year. New pens, pencils, and markers. New notebooks and planners. Back to school shopping was always my favorite kind of shopping! This tag originally comes from a YouTuber named Jenny Unscripted.
English/Language Arts – Name your favorite author or books’ writing style
Amanda- John Green is my favorite author. But Ellen Hopkins is my favorite writing style. The way she writes her books in such a poetic way is incredible.
Antonia- I really love the way Patrick Rothfuss writes in The Kingkiller Chronicles. It’s as though the main character is telling the story directly to you and it adds so much depth to his character.
Math – A book that made you frustrated
Amanda- The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco. I just wanted to get some answers. I almost dnf’d it.
Antonia- Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima. I character I loved from the previous series died in this one and I’m still so mad about it. (Note: I resent the fact that this one is for math because math was always my favorite subject.)
Science – A book that made you think or question things
Amanda- Any book by John Green. Also The Alchemist by Paul Coelho.
Antonia- The Shack by William P. Young.
History – Your favorite book from a different time period
Amanda: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows for a historical fiction. And The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien for a book that’s actually from a different time period.
Antonia- I love any of the regency romance novels by Julia Quinn.
Art – Your favorite book with pictures
Amanda- Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast. This book (and the second one) have actual pages with pictures in them rather than just cute little pictures with the chapter headings.
Antonia- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
Drama – A book you would love to see adapted to a movie or TV show
Amanda- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas would be excellent to see as a tv show for sure.
Antonia- I totally agree with Amanda but to choose my own, I think The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory would make amazing movies.
Music – Name a character you think would have the same musical taste as you
Amanda- I think Charlie from Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow has potential to have the same musical taste as me. Likely some moody alternative music but also sometimes some poppin’ rap/hiphop.
Antonia- Simone from Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts. She mentions what music she’s listening to often and I loved all her choices.
Lunch – A food you would love to try from a book
Amanda- I’m going to be basic on this one but I’d love to try butterbeer or any of the candies from the Harry Potter books.
Antonia- I always wanted to try all the foods from the epic feasts in the Redwall series by Brian Jacques.
Bus Ride Home – A book or author that is relaxing
Amanda- I’d have to say the Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich. Reading this series is like hanging out with an old friend. Always a good time guaranteed to have some laughs.
Antonia- Beastly by Alex Flinn. I’ve read it so many times at this point that it’s like hanging out with an old friend.
Extra Credit – A book someone else told you to read and you ended up enjoying it
Amanda- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. My step sister told me to read this and I’m glad she did. It was super good.
Antonia- Most of the books Amanda yells at me to read. Most recently was the Air Awakens series by Elise Kova.
