The Book SACRIFICE! TAG

Well, well, well. Why not start off my first tag with a tag riddled with unpopular opinions? Haha!

This tag was originally started by my favorite BookTuber Ariel Bissett!

Rules: It’s simple! Choose a book that you are willing to sacrifice in each scenario!

SCENARIO #1

An Over-Hyped book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!

ANSWER #1

I’m bound to receive some backlash from this, BUT IT MUST BE DONE. I shall wipe the zombies WITH…

City of Bones by Cassandra Claire

City of Bones

In short…I just really don’t get the hype. I couldn’t make it past page 200 with this one. It is also hard for me to support an author who I cannot respect (but SHHH…we’re not supposed to talk about that).

 

Scenario #2

A Sequel: Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

Answer #2

While I did attempt to read this one quite awhile ago, I still have not forgotten it.

Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Eldest

loved ERAGON. As a matter of fact, I highly relate it to the reason of how I started liking fantasy. However, Eldest was just a bore fest.

 

Scenario #3

A Classic: Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?

Answer #3

Everyone had to read this at some time or another, I’m sure. So, I’m sure someone out there can agree with me on this one.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby

I think the over-pronounced symbolism that the teacher constantly tried to tell us existed in this book made me dislike it so much. Eh. Disagree or no?

 

Scenario #4

Your least favourite book of life!: Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?

Answer #4

Okay…this one is a big one. While it is rare that I utterly HATE a book, this is one of them.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars

OH MY GOODNESS I HATE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!! There I said it…it’s on the internet now and forever documented. I have no idea how this book got as much hype as it did. This book, in my opinion, was an utter waste of my time to read, 99% because of the ending, 1% because I just couldn’t handle the writing style or the main character.

Either way, if you’re a fan of this book, that’s fine. Maybe you can find an argument to change my opinion.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Well, I hope this doesn’t steer you away from this blog. Hahahahaaaaa.

Anyway…you can buy any of the books mentioned by typing them into Google, because I refuse to link them directly. Ha.

I think I’m supposed to tag people, but I don’t really know a lot of people on here yet. But, we’ll get there!

But, do keep in mind that this is just an honest opinion of an English Major.

Best,

Daniel xx
