Eva @ Brilliantly Bookish had tagged me ages ago in this awesome tag. Thanks so much, Eva! This is a very, very creative tag.
Trump vs. Clinton: Name your favourite character rivalry.
Rhysand and Tamlin from ACOTAR. Team Rhysand all the way!
Turkey Failed Coup: A book you started but failed to finish? DNF.
So far there hasn’t been any such book. It’s one of my quirks to finish a book that I’ve started, no matter how much I dislike it.
Pokemon Go: What book did you buy or read based on the hype? Did you enjoy it?
Eleanor and Park. There was so much hype surrounding this book that I just had to buy it. It certainly lived up to the hype!
Stranger Things: What’s one book you want everyone to read?
To Kill A Mockingbird. It’s a beautiful story with so many morals.
Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr. Robot: What was your favourite book cliffhanger within a series?
Lady Midnight. I admit there wasn’t exactly a cliffhanger in this one but I had needed the sequel so much after having finished it. I’m still not over it.
The Tragic Crisis in Aleppo: Name the last book that made you cry or teary-eyed.
The Book Thief. Books hardly make me cry but this book in particular was so emotional and heart melting, that it made me shed a tear or two.
Brexit: Name a book you have an unpopular opinion towards.
The Fault In Our Stars. Now, I don’t hate this book, but I also don’t love it. I just had huge expectations from it which it unfortunately didn’t live up to and that’s it.
Four new elements discovered in the periodic table: Name an author you discovered/read for the first time this year.
Marissa Meyer, Sarah J Maas, Victoria Aveyard, Jandy Nelson, Rainbow Rowell, to name a few.
#AllLivesMatter: Your favourite diverse read.
I’ll Give You The Sun. I haven’t read a lot of diverse books (need to work on that) but this one blew me away with its words and story.
Zika Virus: A book that spread like wildfire.
Six of Crows. The entire Blogverse is filled with reviews and thoughts of this book and they are all So. Very. Positive. I so have to read this book.
Leonardo DiCaprio FINALLY won the Oscar: What was your most anticipated book release this year?
No idea. Up until now I hardly bothered with new releases, except if they were a sequel of any novel I’d read and liked. It’s only with blogging that I’ve started getting hyped about new releases.
In Memorium: Name a memorable character death.
Crown Of Midnight SPOILER ALERT! Nehemia’s death in Crown Of Midnight was one of the most shocking deaths I’d come across. I had thought she would go on to become one of the main characters of the story and her death did not fit well with me. (currently reading Heir of Fire)
Samsung phones: One book that blew your mind this year!
A Court Of Mist And Fury. One of my absolute favourites!
