Soundtrack Of My Life Book Tag

booktag_soundtrack

It’s Saturday, so I thought it was about time for a book tag! This one is called Soundtrack Of My Life Book Tag and I was tagged by Cassidy @The Little Book Cottage and Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much – check out their blogs ;-)!


OPENING CREDITS: FAVORITE CHILDHOOD BOOK

I didn’t exactly have a favorite childhood book, but I did like the Uma Aventura series quite a bit.

WAKING UP: A BOOK THAT GOT YOU OUT OF A READING SLUMP.

I never exactly got a reading slump… except when I procrastinated for more than a year while reading A Clash of Kings (that’s a tough book to read!). That was about the time I decided to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and it kind of made me want to read other stuff :).

  

SCHOOL: A BOOK YOU HAD TO READ FOR SCHOOL THAT YOU ENDED UP LOVING.

I can only remember reading Os Lusiadas by Luis Vaz de Camões for school and really loving it. I read other stuff for school that I liked at the time, but I honestly don’t remember, lol.

   

   

FALLING IN LOVE: AN AUTHOR YOU LOVE SO MUCH YOU WANT TO READ ALL OF THEIR BOOKS.

Hmmm, so many! I think I want to read everything that Sarah J. Maas, Cassandra Clare, Tahereh Mafi, Marissa Meyer, etc, write. But I’m saying an author that I don’t know if I love yet, but that I want to read her books because I think they’ll be just my thing, and that is Colleen Hoover. I’m with Cátia on this one ;-).

  

FIGHT: BOOK WITH THE BEST ACTION SEQUENCES.

Sarah J. Maas is a genius in writing action sequences, and Queen of Shadows is full of some huge and amazing ones.

BREAK UP: A BOOK OR SERIES YOU DIDN’T FINISH AND DO NOT INTEND TO FINISH.

If I’m being totally honest, I don’t think I’ll ever end up finishing The Maze Runner series. I read the first book, watched the first movie, and then, meh… I have all the other books (because smart me bought a box set and everything), but I have zero interest in picking them up.

HANGING WITH FRIENDS: BOOK YOU THINK EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD READ.

Again, I’ll repeat myself, because that’s what I do. FREAKING READ THE ONE THING!!! I swear to you that Marci Lyn Curtis’ debut book is absolutely amazing and you won’t be sorry to read it.

  

  

BREAKDOWN: BOOK THAT SERIOUSLY AFFECTED YOU/HAD YOU CRYING YOUR EYES OUT. 

I cried my eyes out in Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. Actually, I dare you to say that you didn’t, because that is impossible. This book messes with every single emotion you have.

   

   

ROAD TRIP: YOU FAVORITE SERIES (MORE THAN 3 BOOKS).

So far, I would have to say the Throne of Glass series, though I have to say that The Lunar Chronicles do come very very close.

  

  

GETTING BACK TOGETHER: WHAT BOOK CAN YOU NOT STOP REREADING.

Ok, it’s not like I do this at all. My books stay in Portugal, away from me, for a good reason. But when I finished Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi, I had a hard time letting go of the book, and I kept opening it up and reading certain chapters. This doesn’t happen anymore. The book is away from me!

  

WEDDING: A BOOK THAT IS REALLY SPECIAL TO YOU.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell will always hold a special place in my heart. First of, it was the book that kind of launched me into writing reviews on my blog, and hence, it started this whole book blogging thing. Then, I identify a lot with Cath, as I think most of us do, and the book is just precious.

    

MOMENT OF TRIUMPH: LONGEST BOOK YOU’VE EVER READ

I’m pretty sure it was A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. Sure, my version only had 778 pages, but it was the pocket paperback edition, and the lettering was tiny.

   

   

DEATH SCENE: BOOK OR SERIES YOU WISH HAD ENDED DIFFERENTLY.

I somehow wish that The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh had ended a bit differently, without, you know, that massive stupid cliffhanger! I can’t even! I need to know what happens next. NOW.

   

   

FUNERAL: BOOK WITH THE BEST OR WORST EPILOGUE.

Because I’ve already used Clockwork Princess, and that was Cátia’s answer too, and even though that one IS the best epilogue, I’ll give you another that I thought was pretty fantastic, and that is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.

This book is all fantastic, but the epilogue wraps things up nicely, for a Rainbow Rowell book at least…

    I literally finished Clockwork Princess Yesterday and I god the epilogue ade me cry happy and sad tears at the same time! This book messed up my emotions so much! Yes Queen Of Shadows had one of the most epic fight scene’s!

  2. Keira says:

    I love Sarah J. Maas, I’d pretty much read anything she writes. I read certain chapters of Carry On and Ignite Me over… specifically, the love scenes xD. Love this tag!

  3. Kat Impossible says:

    Great answers! It’s going to be so difficult to say something different from you and Cátia! However, I will try and make that my personal challenge, because I am going to do that tag today as well!

  4. A Stranger's Guide to Novels says:

    Thanks for tagging me!
    Aw I wish Rainbow Rowell can write a sequel for Carry On to be honest. I would love to see how Baz and Simon’s relationship would of developed.
    Wrath of the dawn ended so abruptly! Which made it more shocking I guess.
    I haven’t read Wallflower yet but I guess I should after seeing how much people like it.

  5. Tasya says:

    Clorkwork Princess is definitely Cassandra Clare at her finest! It was so beautiful and hearbreaking and bittersweet, leaving me feeling statisfied yet somehow yearning for more! I cried and cried and had the longest book hangover. It was the best. And I also feel meh about The Maze Runner. I just don’t feel the motivation to finish the series!

  6. Ashley says:

    Aw that sucks that you will not be finishing the Maze Runner. I seen that it had a lot of mixed feelings. I personally enjoyed the series a lot although the last book fell pretty short and I felt the ending was so dumb.
    Your favorite series is my least favorite, haha. Well so far. I only read Throne of Glass, but not the others yet. I didn’t enjoy Throne of Glass much as I hoped and same for the Lunar Chronicles so far. I really haven’t enjoyed Scarlet or Cress very much. 😦
    I hope to read Shatter Me this year! I have the first two books, so I am dying to read them asap! I meant to in 2015 and never got around to it.

  7. Josephine says:

    Clockwork Princess was a total tear-fest! It was the absolute best book EVER and I still feel like crying when I think about it.
    And QUEEN OF SHADOWS. Yes, that book was so dang action packed that it left me in such an intense slump!

  8. Melanie Noell Bernard says:

    Ah! CLASH OF KINGS! *dies* My version has 967 pages and I feel like it’s NEVER GOING TO END! *headdesk* I mainly want to finish it so that I can go on and read other books again. :p That’s my biggest problem with long books. They take FOREVER and you have to wait to read other books. This format is not how my brain is wired… :/

  9. Maria says:

    I’m so with you on The Maze Runner! I was so underwhelmed by the first one that I had no interest in reading the rest of the series. Thanks for the tag 😀
