The Panic! At The Disco Book Tag
This tag was created by Liv @ Curly Hair Bibliophile.
The lovely Sierra @ The Nerdgirl Review tagged me - love ya!
I've added YouTube vids. of the songs, and links to where you can purchase them on Amazon (I'm an Amazon associate) - because I've got an excuse to chuck Panic! music at you, and I'm gonna use it!
(And I'm going to see them live in November and complete my pilgrimage to each member of the Holy Emo Trinity! Squee!!!!!!!)
So join me as I relive my misspent youth, and weasel out of giving direct answers (I'd be one heck of a politician.)
1. I Write Sins, Not Tragedies
A book you didn't understand/finish
Possession by A S Byatt. It's not often that I permanently DNF a book, but I attempted it twice or three times, and lost the will to go on.
2. Northern Downpour
A book that made you cry
Books rarely make me cry because I'm
a stone-cold hard-a*s rarely moved to tears by anything. I cry more when I'm angry then when I'm sad - strange but true. Except when my depression's bad... then I cry at everything.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (UK - US) though... that made me tear up, more than once. And Mojo, from Swan Boy by Nikki Sheehan (UK - US,) came pretty damned close.
(You can read my review of Swan Boy here.)
3. This is Gospel
A book that made your heart pound/suspenseful
(Although, in the case of The Stand, it may've been from exertion rather than anything else - that ferociously long b*****d is over one thousand pages in length. I sh** you not.)
A book you attach with a memory
I owe a lot to that book.
5. Sarah Smiles
Your favourite love story
(You can check out my review of The Invisibles here.)
A book with the best battle
Hmm... depends what counts as a battle I suppose. I'm not all that bothered about big battle scenes - they tend to get boring!
Plus, there tends to be a bunch of geography and descriptions of relative positions... and we suspected dyscalculics can't be imagining that cr*p.
A book with your favorite LGBT+ character
Oh man, there are so many LGBTQ+ characters that I love to death (metaphorically, of course.)
But this honour has to go to one of my first vampire-loves, the wonderful Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles.
8. Emperor's New Clothes
A book with a good cover change.
I honestly don't know - there are numerous cover changes, after all, and we have different covers here in the UK a lot of the time anyway.
9. LA Devotee
A fictional place you want to live in
Narnia, totally Narnia.
But hell, I wouldn't say no to Hogwarts!
9. Miss Jackson
Your favourite female protagonist
Urgh! So many!
I refuse to commit to my all-time favourite, but at the moment I'm loving Nina from Nina Is Not OK by Shappi Khorsandi (UK)
I'll be reviewing Nina Is Not OK towards the end of the month so keep an eye out!
I tag... Emma @ The Book Crunch and Olivia @ Olivia's Catastrophe - you don't have to do it if you don't want to!
