Hi lovelies, today I’m going to do the Social Media book tag.
I’d originally seen this on Katytastic’s Youtube channel and thought it was a fun short little tag. If you’d also like to do this tag, feel free to copy the questions and answer them! Make sure you send me a link… on social media…
Let’s get straight into the questions:
Twitter: Your favorite shortest book.
My favourite short read is actually Love Is A Higher Law by David Levithan. This book fits this question perfectly because it’s only about 150 pages long but is packed with a ton of emotion, and different pespectives and was such a powerful read despite the length. I am going to be writing a more indepth review of this book shortly, and so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Facebook: A book everyone pressured you into reading.
I wouldn’t necessarily say I’ve ever really been ‘pressured’ into reading anything, but I’d say I was heavily encouraged to read The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I originally had heard about this through my friend Samantha, and then I had been further persuaded by fellow book bloggers in a group chat on twitter. I must say I’m very thankful I did pick this book up, because I thought it was great.
Tumblr: A book you read before it was cool.
I suppose you could say any of the proof copies I’ve received as a blogger could fit this bill, because technically it hasn’t been released and therefore not had chance to be popular. But, I’m going to go for a more obvious answer for this and say Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I read this book back before it was made into a film, and before it became known world wide.
Myspace: A book you don’t remember whether you liked or not.
Honestly, this is a tough question because I can generally remember whether or not I liked something. Sometimes I might forget how the plot is developed, or who the characters are but really I always have a sense of how I felt about them. Even if it was indifference, I still remember that.
Instagram: A book that was so beautiful you had to instagram it.
I love aesthetically pleasing book covers and I’m always instagraming the book I’m reading. I absolutely adore my fancy collection of Harry Potter novels, and also the beautiful copy of Grimm’s Fairytales that I received as a gift for Christmas.
Youtube: A book you wish would be turned into a movie.
When I look through my Goodreads ‘read’ list, I realised that the majority of the books I’ve read have already been adapted into a movie. There was one that (to my knowledge) hasn’t been adapted into a film yet, and that is The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom. I loved this book, and thought this would have made a pretty decent film.
Goodreads: A book you recommend to everyone.
This may be an obvious one to those that have read my blog before, but the book I always recommend to everyone is The Book Thief by Markus Zusack. I constantly talk about this book to people that ask me which books I’ve loved. I’ve given this book as a gift, and lent it out to people too. Adore it!
