ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
A Book That Wasn’t or Couldn’t Be Better Than The Movie
Harry Potter. I enjoy Harry Potter films but not in comparison to the books. There’s so much missed out and these days it could be even more magical! Plus I think a better actress for Ginny could do wonders (sorry).
THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE
A Rags to Riches or Riches to Rags Story
Okay so I’m probably missing some obvious ones here, but what’s popped into my head is Robin Hobb’s Farseer books. Fitz goes from rags to riches to rags to who knows what so many times and I just love it.
In terms of YA I think Everless would fall under this category. Check out my review if you haven’t already 💕 but this story really blew me away. I loved Jules, and I loved the whole concept of Time as Currency, leeching it from blood to create coins.
THE APPLE DOES NOT FALL FAR FROM THE TREE
A Parent/Child Relationship That You Love
I struggled with this one! So many parental relationships in YA are so so bad. Saying that, I managed to come up with one.
The Hazel Wood. I love how much Elle cares for and sacrificed for Alice. I won’t go into too much detail as I don’t wanna spoil. My spoiler free review for this is here.
YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
A Good Book That Needs a Better Cover
I am TERRIBLE for judging a book by its cover 😅 I’m going to have to look at my shelves for this to really give an honest answer.
Okay so I changed my mind about answering this one. Did you see the whole thing with Terry Goodkind being an asshat and calling out his ‘terrible’ cover? It’s not fair to the artist. So with that in mind I’m not going to answer this one.
YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE
A Book You Hate That Everyone loves
Hmmm. I don’t like being negative about books. However I couldn’t get more than 30 pages into Zenith before I had to abandon it. I plan on going back to it though.
WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER
What’s a Book That Made You a Better Person For Having Read It
Unboxed by Non Pratt really resonated with me when I read it! Also The Exaxt Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven is just mind blowing!
IGNORANCE IS BLISS
A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want to Admit It
Okay I just don’t finish books that I didn’t enjoy. I also don’t like this kind of question as it’s quite a negative one – it also implies that I don’t have any integrity when it comes to being honest about disliking a hyped book? haha. So yeah – won’t be answering this one.
THERE IS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT
What is Your Favourite Contemporary Book?
I don’t read many contemporary but I LOVED When Dimple Met Rishi ❤
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY
A Book You Don’t Want to Read in Case It’s Bad
I don’t really think like this when it comes to books. I guess I always hope a book isn’t bad that I’m going to read? I guess for me I get this feeling with books by friends. I couldn’t imagine reading a friends book and not liking it… what would I do then? GAH.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Have you read any of these?
