The K-Pop Book Tag

Okay, this is going to come as a shock to many of you … not so much to others … but, I know nothing about K-Pop. I am not blind, I have seen some of the bands swirling around. My Twitter timeline features gifs of various singers and dancers and their apparent cuteness on the regular, but … I just really can’t get into the music? I TRIED! But it isn’t happening. My sole contribution to this bandwagon will be in form of this K-Pop Book Tag now, which the ever so lovely Abigail @What Makes a Good Book tagged me for! Thanks so much for giving me the chance to be a part of this movement!

RULES

  • Credit the creator of this tag, The Book Prophet, and link back to her original post.
  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Answer all the questions to the best of your ability.
  • Tag as many people as you like.
  • Have fun!

BTS– A BOOK EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT

The Hate U GiveThere are so many that I could name for this category, but I am going with one of my more recent reads. I felt like the last person on the planet to read The Hate U Give and I had no excuse whatsoever for doing it so late. I knew it would be hard, but I also knew I’d love the story. Now, I cannot wait for the movie to come out. The cast is absolutely brilliant and I trust them to do the book justice.

EXO– FAVOURITE COMPANION NOVEL

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)I absolutely loved, loved, loved Isla and the Happily Ever After, which is a companion novel in the Anna and the French Kiss series. It may even have been my favorite of all three (even though I will always appreciate Anna’s experience as a foreigner in her new school).

NU’EST– NAME A BOOK/SERIES/TRILOGY THAT DOESN’T GET THE ATTENTION YOU THINK IT DOES

I will forever be bitter about how few people have read the Wolf by Wolf duology. It is amazing and deserves way more attention!

ASTRO– A BOOK THAT GAVE YOU A HAPPY FEELING WHILE READING

If anyone asked me what happened during You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan, I am not sure I could actually recap the events, but I remember that the book made me insanely happy. The friendship was goals and the atmosphere was amazing!

Stealing this gif from Savannah, just to include some of the actual KPop bands haha

MONSTAX– A BOOK CONTAINING A DIVERSE SET OF CHARACTERS

Queens of GeekMy first instinct was Six of Crows, and I believe that many can relate to that thought, however, I want to give a different answer than Abigail and am therefore choosing Queens of Geek! There’s a bisexual Chinese girl and another character who deals with anxiety and her own body image.

A.C.E– A FAVOURITE RECENT RELEASE

I am reading this book at the moment, which means I am not even done yet, but IRON GOLD! Anything that gives me more of this universe and my bae Sevro deserves to be mentioned here.

BLACKPINK– A BOOK THAT STICKS OUT FROM THE REST OF IT’S GENRE

My Lady Jane (The Lady Janies, #1)I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, but I will forever love My Lady Jane. It’s weird and quirky, definitely not accurate but what it lacks in that department, it multiplies in humour!

 

SEVENTEEN– A BOOK WITH MULTIPLE POV’S

Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity, #2)Hmmm … I think I have to go with Our Dark Duet here. It does have more than two POVs, so I definitely count it as multiple. (Then again, wouldn’t two be multiple as well? Isn’t everything that’s more than one “multiple”? I am thinking about this too much …)

BIGBANG– A MODERN CLASSIC

This may just be my opinion, but I definitely without a doubt consider Call Me By Your Name a modern classic and I think that almost everyone who has read it will agree. It just needs to get a bit more recognition as a book.

SISTAR– A SERIES YOU WISH NEVER ENDED

Uhm … Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events? 13 books is not enough, because while I could deal with the doom and gloom knowing there would be a next book coming, it was a whole other story when you actually got that super unsatisfying end end. Hope that makes sense?

RAIN– FAVOURITE STANDALONE

HOW IS ONE SUPPOSED TO CHOSE JUST ONE BOOK?!?!? *insert me randomly pointing at a book on my favorites shelf* FINE, IT’S THE MARTIAN?!?!

The Martian

I TAG THEE

*As always, don’t feel obliged to do the tag if you don’t want to.*

What do you think about K-Pop? Are you a big fan? Are you a complete novice like me? Let’s talk!

  1. Yeah I haven’t gotten into K Pop either. Wait there’s gonna be a movie of the hate u give? I had no idea! (still haven’t read the book) Isla was my favourite too!!! 😀 Ahh I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Iron Gold- it’ll probably take me a while to get to, but I know I’m gonna love it when I do 😀 hehehe I get what you mean about series of unfortunate events 😉 And the Martian is amazing!! Thank you so much for tagging me!

    • Yeah, I am all for everyone who finds their passion in K-Pop, but it just really isn’t for me? Maybe I will go all hipster on everyone and like it once it is out hahaha you never know!
      Iron Gold is already amazing! I have honestly forgotten way more names than I thought I did, but my anxiety levels are high and I am only 15% into it all.
      I hope you still have fun with the tag!

  2. I’m so happy to see you do this tag even though you don’t like kpop 😀 (but hey, at least you tried it!) Hahaha I think your twitter constantly has kpop show up because of me *laughs evilly* You’re going to love THUG! It was sooo good and I can’t wait for the movie either, the cast is just absolutely brilliant.

  3. I’m so happy you said that you don’t know much about K-Pop, we are one and the same haha. I have seen popular singers and bands around, but I never really tried and listened to the music or bothered to look them up so far… maybe someday I will? 😛
    Isla was my favorite of the whole series as well, somehow she was and still is one of the bookish characters I could relate to the most. I loved Queens of Geek so much, such a fun and relatable book, I’m excited for her next release, The Brightsiders! 😀

    • We truly are one and the same ❤ *whispers* and always together in our pettiness over other things haha (if that ain't an inside joke, then I don't know!)
      I tried listening to some BTS after they went onto all those American talk shows, but I just … no?
      I can't wait for Brightsiders either! I also love how the covers fit together somehow? SO MUCH PINK!

      • Hahaha, yes always together 😛 ❤
        I'll have to give them a try someday, just to see what all the fuss is about and if I could enjoy it, haha 🙂
        RIGHT??? I need to get two physical copies of these books to put them together on my shelves :p

  4. I’m not a massive fan of K-Pop either Kat, but I am a massive fan of books so I can’t wait to take part in this tag. Thanks for tagging me as well. 🙂
    The Wolf by Wolf trilogy is amazing and yes it definitely deserves much more praise. It’s incredible and actually I read want to re-read it again soon (despite knowing it will end up breaking my heart all over again). Also I am so glad to see Iron Gold made your favourite recent release as well. It’s definitely mine, it was actually the first book I read in 2018 that got a five star rating from me.
    Great answers for this one, and again thanks for the tag! 😀 ❤

  5. I might a taad obsessed with Kpop and a *smidge* in love with Korean culture so finding this tag has literally made my week 😭 I’m sad. So cool you did this despite not being a big kpop fan! And don’t feel like you were the last person to read The Hate You Give either…based on your aesthetic, I’m alreaddy liking Sevro (that’s how you spell his name I think?) so I’m gunna have to give that one a read!!

    • I don’t know why, but I didn’t know you were such a big Kpop fan! I’d have tagged you from the get go otherwise!
      Sevro is the beeeest! Just as a fair warning, the Red Rising saga is BRUTAL, but I have nothing but love for these books either way.

  6. I saw this post and couldn’t not click immediately, (sorry for the double negative haha) as I’m a pretty hardcore kpop stan. I find it quite lovely that you did the challenge despite not knowing the bands, but you did great! I was wondering if it would be okay with you if I jumped onto the train myself? I really want to do it, it sounds really interesting! Oh, and thanks for writing the post!! 💛💛
