Hello fellow book nerds!
This is my very first tag. I’m quite excited. I totally wasn’t tagged. Well, technically, Zezee with Books tagged anyone who wanted to do it.. so we’ll just pretend I was officially tagged. This tag was originally created by Kellys Bookspill! The video is actually hilarious. Onesies galore.
The Bedtime Book Tag… sounds so nice and reminiscent of childhood days…
Alright. Flashlight under the covers time.
- A book that kept you up all night reading…
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I remember being in a hotel room with my dad and my grandma when I was 16 and deciding to start reading this before I went to bed. I read the entire thing. Could not stop. Then when I’d finished it, I couldn’t sleep. Still one of my favorite books.
2. A book that made you scared to go to sleep…
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
Hahahahaha. I was so terrified when I read the graveyard scene. Slept with the lights on that night ;)
Side note: I just Googled to see what year this was released and accordingly, how embarrassed I should be, read Nov 2005 and I was like OHMYGOD I was 13?! Then I realized that was the release date of the movie….. Hahahahaha. Its ok guys. I was only 8 when I read this book. :)
3. A book that made you go to sleep…
Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin
For the record, I don’t fall asleep reading. I never have. I can read textbooks and stay engaged. It’s my secret super power. But anyway. I started reading this forever ago because I was initially drawn in by the language. And then the language got weird. I don’t like books that throw impossible things into a normal world. Like a golden room or a flying horse? I just don’t get it. I need some kind of explanation. When I heard they were making a movie I was like um.. what?! I don’t know how that would be possible. Has anyone else read it? If you have, you probably get what I’m sayin’. Or I’m just crazy.
4. A book that left you tossing and turning in anticipation of its release…
Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin
Does a book that’s not out yet count? I thought I was all good to go because I started reading the books in 2013, two years after the 5th book had been published. Then I finished all five and was like uhm….. I’m still waiting…..
5. A book that has your dream boyfriend/girlfriend…
6. A book that would be your worst nightmare to live in
It by Stephen King
I’ve only read like 100 pages of this because I’ve heard so many amazing and terrifying things about it, but from what I’ve read so far? NO THANK YOU. NO EVIL CLOWN TOWNS. Not for me.
7. A book cover that reminds you of nighttime…
Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix
I LOVED these books when I was younger. I want to read them again but they were written for youngins and I don’t want to ruin the memory of them. And there’s a moon in the background and its all dark and yeah…. night time…
8. A book that has a nightmarish cliffhanger…
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Okay, I know this is a standalone novel and it doesn’t have a “cliffhanger” in the usual sense. But the ending of the book does leave it up for interpretation, and my interpretation made me mad. Like, wish I hadn’t read the book mad. So I’m counting it as a nightmarish “cliffhanger”.
9. A book that you actually dreamed about…
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Teehee. I can’t shut up about this book. The night I started it (and read 2/3 of it) I had some crazy dreams. I was kind of half-awake half-asleep, so I can’t remember exactly what they were about, but there was definitely some Grisha magic and I’m pretty sure I was in Russia. Oh, excuse me, Ravka.
10. A book monster that you would not want to find under your bed…
Pretty much any monster in any book? Who would want a monster under their bed? Unless its some kind of friendly monster..like Toothless awwww.
But I’m going to go with an Orc.
No no no, no no no. This scene put me off from Lord of the Rings for YEARS. My parents were watching it and I walked in and walked back out. So I didn’t watch the movies until I was 20 and the hobbit movies started coming out. Although I read the books a few years before that!
I tag anyone who has never been tagged for a tag (too much tagging)!
I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading!
