Big thanks to Amanda @ My Books Opinion Site, for tagging me for The Book Sacrifice Tag! I don’t know if I’ve done this before, but if so oh well, I’m doing it AGAIN! 😉
Let’s get started! 😀
1. AN OVER-HYPED BOOK:
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.
I just don’t get why people love this book so much.
Holden got on my LAST nerve!!!
2. A SEQUEL:
Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead.
Any book from the Bloodlines Series really. This should
count because this series is a sequel to the Vampire Academy
Series by Richelle Mead.
3. A CLASSIC:
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
I was so bored/brain dead while reading this book, that
I can’t even tell you what it is about…So, I’ll be getting
rid of this one for sure!
4. A LEAST FAVORITE BOOK:
Situation: apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
I Take You by Eliza Kennedy.
This might be a great book for others, but I’m sorry
it’s just not for me. I felt like I was reading some
hardcore porn…No Thanks! 😐
Thanks again to Amanda for the tag!
Now that I think about it, I haven’t done this tag before.

I loved to hear you answers 😁 great choice.
I chuckled while reading this, thanks for the laugh this seems like a lot of fun to do!
You’re Welcome!! 😀 I guess that means, I TAG YOU THEN!! 😀
Yay!!! So excited to do this.
Did you like the Vampire Academy series itself? I only read the first one and although it was easy to read I didn’t really like it. I really don’t like anything Charles Dickens wrote. What makes it worse is that he goes on and on forever because he was paid my word count!
Yes, I did love the whole series. I didn’t think I was going to at first, but I just kept on with the series and I ended up loving it! 🙂
OH WOW! I didn’t know that about Charles Dickens! Maybe that’s why it was such a BORE! He just put random words together and called it a book! 😐
Yep! He was originally published in a magazine, so the more words he wrote, the more money he was paid.
Wow…I wonder how much he was paid per word
Yeah. It kind of makes me sad that he is considered one of the great writers. I think my sister writes better than him…. and she is 12 with dyslexia.
The first book in the VA series is kind of bad lol, but after that it gets way better. The writing and the story really improve.
Interesting. I really liked The Glittering Court, but I’m not sure the concepts behind VA are that interesting to me anymore.
Oh, no! Not The Catcher in the Rye! Though, in fairness, I liked it a lot more when I read it in high school than when I reread it later. I guess one kind of has to be a teen to appreciate it or something?
No, I wouldn’t say so…I was a teen when I read it, and I didn’t care for it. In all honesty, I think Holden’s attitude is probably the reason why I disliked the book so much.
Yeah, he can come across as kind of whiny and full of himself. :p
