Stranger Things Book Tag

strangerthings-booktag

So, I don’t think it’s a secret that I am absolutely obsessed with Stranger Things! I usually stay away from anything that could scare me in the slightest, but somehow I couldn’t resist. It’s been weeks that I’ve watched it now, but I still can’t shake the awesomeness of it all. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s like Super 8 meets The Goonies meets Taken by Steven Spielberg – basically a whole bunch of awesomeness right there! Therefore I was all the happier to hear that A Running Commentary created the Stranger Things Book Tag and that Dee @Bookish Khaleesi tagged me for it!

I hope everyone is cool with me using these graphics, because I don’t know who created them originally, but I would like to give credit!

THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT LEFT YOU INTRIGUED AND SLIGHTLY CONFUSED

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)This Savage Song had such a unique and amazing set-up, but I did not understand half of how this world came into being in the first place. The idea of the monsters is absolutely fascinating, but I need so much more information. Monsters of Verity is therefore the series I choose! (Also, because it includes my buttercup August and I need to mention him a lot)

A BOOK WITH A SETTING YOU WOULD NEVER WANT TO LIVE IN

Splintered (Splintered, #1)I do never ever want to go to the Wonderland version from the Splintered series. It’s more like a bizarre Goth-Zombieland than the version I came to love and cherish so much. So, if given the chance, I am afraid I would pass … even with Morpheus as my guide …

A BOOK YOU OWN THAT IS SOMEWHAT DAMAGED, BUT LOVED TO PIECES

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)Most of my books are in pristine condition, but sometimes that’s just not possible to maintain. I don’t know how it happened but The Raven Boys is one of the rare books that actually looks like someone has read it and weirdly, I am not even mad about it.

A TRILOGY YOU ALWAYS GO TO WHENEVER YOU NEED A PICK-ME-UP

I don’t re-read, therefore I really don’t know how to answer this … I guess Shatter Me, A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Inkworld books bring back happy memories, though I would never pick them up again, except maybe to read a certain passage.

A BOOK WITH A TERRIFYING BEAST YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO FACE IN A DARK ALLEY

Is there such a thing as a beast I would like to face in the daylight instead? I don’t think so! Well, if we are not talking about the entire Miss Peregrine series, but just the first book, then I guess I wouldn’t want to run into a Hollow. (By book three I wanted them as pets, so there you go with my fear)

A BOOK WITH A VILLAIN WHO IS BOTH MANIPULATIVE AND DEDICATED

I know I have already mentioned the Series of Unfortunate Events above, but have you ever considered how dedicated Count Olaf was to making those children miserable? The personas he took on, the time chasing them and for what? It was really ridiculous, but pure dedication.

A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT TO LOVE

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)This may come as a shock, but I did not go into Red Rising thinking that I would like it. In fact, I was ready to dismiss it after a couple of chapters but BAM! It hit me in the heart – hard! It’s way gorier than what I usually read and I also don’t dabble in sci-fi as much as I used to, so it was unexpected but deep, deep love!

A BOOK WITH A SETTING THAT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT STRANGE

The Rest of Us Just Live HereI really enjoyed The Rest of Use Just Live Here but the setting is basically every teen cliché ever written, but in a good way? Does that make sense to you? Well, I guess you would have to really read it to know what I mean. It was cleverly done in my opinion.

 


I should tag someone, but I feel like people who watched the show will probably appreciate the tag the most. Since I don’t know who has and who hasn’t, I am using the easy cop out and tag EVERYONE!

  1. Kat, something IS WEIRD here with our Raven Boys copies. Are we twins or something?!! I ordered my copy online, and when I got it, well… it felt weird, just like someone had read it before as well …. Okay, I’m so confused by this similarity right now haha.
    And I wouldn’t want to live in Splintered world either, I think we already established why this is not a place for both of us 😛

    • Everything about those books is weird! Did I ever tell you that I did some tarot card reading while reading the books? It was the STRANGEST thing ever. First, I split the deck of cards and I got Blue’s card. Then I thought, could be a coincidence, let’s try this again. I thought of a person from the second book really hard, split the deck AND I GOT THE CARD FOR THAT PERSON. Then, I thought I’d try it again with another person. Splitting the deck felt wrong though, like it wouldn’t have the right result, even if I tried. So I went through the cards (I have a weird tarot card deck, so I wanted to see if the card even had the same name) and the one I was looking for was the ONLY one that was upside down. The book enhanced my psychic abilities hahaha
