Hey guys, happy weekend! I know we’re all still stuck inside, so hopefully you’ve got some relaxing, bookish plans to fill your time. Or maybe, like me, you’re still obsessed with the new Animal Crossing game that came out about a month ago. I have literally played for more than 150 hours, guys. Send help.
Earlier today I saw this fun book tag floating around the blogsphere, and I knew I had to participate! No one tagged me, I just really enjoy these 🙂
- Please link back to the original creator of the tag, Two Book Thieves.
- Answer the following Animal Crossing themed book questions.
- Tag some friends to spread the love!
Past Villager – Who is a character you found when you were younger that still has a place in your heart?
I know a lot of people think Goldie is a boring, normal character, but I can’t help but love her! She’s always so kind and helpful, and she loves to read so I can relate ❤
Blather’s Blatherings – Recommend a historical fiction book that you think everybody should read.
My go-to rec for historical fiction is All the Light We Cannot See! I don’t read historical fiction often, so when I find a really good one, it becomes my favorite in that genre. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a dual perspective novel set during WWII, told by two very different children: one a member of Hitler Youth, another a blind girl living in Paris. It’s so good!
Celeste’s Wish – What is a future book release you wish you could read now?
UUUUUGGGGHHHH. Any Way the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell. I know it’s not done being written. I know there’s not a release date for it. I KNOW that I need to be patient but the suspense is killing me. Anyone in the Simon Snow fandom can relate.
Timmy and Tommy – What is your favourite sibling relationship in a book?
Easy–the Song girls in the To All the Boys series. Even though I disliked Margot sometimes (a lot of times), the Song girls have the most perfect sibling relationships that I envy completely. Especially Lara Jean and Kitty’s relationship. I think some of my favorite scenes in the series revolved around the Song girls. Sorry, Peter K.
The Easter Bunny – A popular book character that you’re not a big fan of.
Ooo–this is a hard one. Hmm. Maybe…Holden Caufield in The Catcher in the Rye. Not only did I not like the book, but I couldn’t stand Holden. Ugh. Never reading that book again.
Nook’s Loans – An author you’d give all your money to.
John Green. Every day, any day.
The Sisters Able – What is your favourite fictional family (found or otherwise)?
I mean, not only do I love the Song girls in the To All the Boys series, but I LOVE THE DAD. Dad Covey is actually probably my favorite character in that series. They’re family is so warm and close and make me smile.
It’s a C+ – What is a book trope that you don’t like that keeps popping up?
I like to say I hate hate-to-love stories but I actually secretly love them 🙂 The trope I am super sick of is catfishing. Like, those books where a girl pretends to be another girl and tricks a guy into falling in love with one girl’s looks/public life while falling for the catfisher’s personality. That makes me sick. I understand not having confidence but resorting to catfishing is sick. I hate it. Don’t do that to a person. It makes me even MORE mad when the guy/girl forgives the catfisher and they get together. Bleh.
The Wedding Camel – What is your favourite book set in a land far away from yours?
Illuminae! The whole trilogy, tbh.
What Would Dodos Do? – A fictional land you wish you could fly away to at any moment?
Hogwarts. I haven’t actually finished the book series (don’t kill me), but the films are a part of my childhood and always will be cherished. I think every kid wants to go to Hogwarts. A magical boarding school would be way, way more interesting than high school ever was.
Again, I wasn’t tagged by anybody. I want to tag anyone who’s interested in participating! If you love Animal Crossing and books, have at it 🙂 Have a great weekend, everyone!
