Today, despite the fact I am yet to see the Greatest Showman, I’m doing the book tag, which I was tagged for by Kelly. Onto the post!
The Greatest Show – The greatest book you have ever read:
Way too hard. But, in terms of a standalone, probably Boy in the Tower. It’s exceptional; it should be so bleak and hopeless, but it isn’t at all. Recent favourite standalones are Jess Butterworth’s and the Children of Castle Rock.
A Million Dreams – A book that left you dreaming after you finished it
I don’t think I’ve actually ever had a dream based on a book. I’m going to interpret this as a book that really immersed me into its world, and something that definetely fits that description is Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone.
Come Alive – A book where a character finally accept themselves:
I have (at time of writing) agonised over this for over a week, and been unable to schedule this post because of it. So either though I’m using her in another question too, I’m going with Harriet from Geek Girl. Over the course of the series, she learns that she IS a geek, but there is nothing wrong with that, and anyone who can’t appreciate her for her real self doesn’t deserve her.
The Other Side – A character who changes your opinion of them:
I really wasn’t keen on Hermes when I read Who Let the Gods Out, but he absolutely won my heart in Simply the Quest (and I think everyone who’s read that book will be able to guess the scene that caused me to change my mind!)
Never Enough – An author/series you could never get enough of:
The Murder Most Unladylike books. I want there to be like 20 of them, because they really haven’t dwindled in quality at all.
This Is Me – A book you love despite everyone hating it:
I really struggled with this, but one I like that others don’t seem to is Girl Online. I thought it was a really enjoyable book, and I liked the characters.
Rewrite The Stars – A bookish OTP that overcame a lot to finally be together:
Harriet and Nick from the Geek Girl series are my ultimate bookish OTP, and they managed to overcome the long distance aspect and many other misunderstandings to be together.
Tightrope – A book/series that gives you trust issues:
The ending of the Lost and the Found blows my mind to this very day, and I read it YEARS ago now. It was packed full of twists and turns, and I never quite knew which characters to trust.
From Now On – A book you’ve ignored for SO long, you need to read it ASAP:
The Secret of Supernatural Creek. I’m thinking I’ll take it on my holiday in the summer, though I’m not sure anymore whether I’ll reread the first four before it as I love them so much I’m worried it could taint my opinion (I will most definetely reread them again one day though, because I adore them)
Thank you so much for reading! Do you like any of these books? Would you recommend this film? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl!
