I was tagged by Amber @ Step Into a Book World for the Cliche Book Tag. Yay! You guys should check out Amber’s blog if you haven’t already. Because why wouldn’t you want to find out what an awesome blogger she is?
Actions Speak Louder Than Words – A book that wasn’t or couldn’t be better than the movie
Fight Club was a good book, but I felt like they really figured out how to fuck with your mind in the movie version. I love that movie.
The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side – A rags to riches or riches to rags story
I’m going to give the same answer as Amber and say A Court of Thorns and Roses. Feyre doesn’t just go from being poor, she gets the power of a High Fae, which in my opinion is even more badass than just getting a bunch of money.
The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree – A parent-child relationship that you love
This question is making me realize how the vast majority of books I read contain very poor (if any) parent-child relationships. (Hey, let’s not dive too deep into that one. Heh.) That being said, I’m cheating a little and picking the Harry Potter series. I think there were some amazing relationships in this book. Even though Harry’s parents were dead, his appreciation of family and the love he still had for his parents was beautiful. His relationships with the other parent-like figures in his life, like Sirius and Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, was also inspiring.
You Can’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover – A great book that needs a better cover
The Stand. I’m not going to lie, I absolutely hate this cover.
You Can’t Please Everyone – A book you hate that everyone loves
The Magicians. Ugh. If you’re a regular reader you’re probably sick of hearing me rant about that one. Sorry. 😛 (If you’re not a regular reader, allow me to sum it up: Boring magical world and whiny, pretentious characters.)
What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger – A book that made you a better person for having read it
Furiously Happy. I LOVE YOU JENNY LAWSON. ❤
Love is Blind – A book with a disabled character (or actual blind love)
The protagonist of The Rosie Project, Professor Don Tillman, falls on the autism spectrum. He can’t interact with most “normal” people and only understands things from a scientific or rational point of view. When he goes searching for love it ends up being a giant disaster and it’s amazing. I love Don and Rosie’s relationship in this book.
Ignorance is Bliss – A book that is bad but you just don’t want to admit it
Dorothy Must Die. I admit that the last two books in the series were pretty bad, but I’m still holding on to the first two.
There is No Time Like the Present- What is your favorite contemporary book?
I really don’t read a lot of contemporary books, so please accept my offering of this contemporary dance instead.
Better Safe Than Sorry – A book you don’t want to read in case it’s bad
I’m kind of afraid to start A Darker Shade of Magic, even though I just purchased it. I keep hearing that it’s amazing and I don’t want it to be a let down.
I tag…ALL OF YOU, you wonderful, amazing bloggers, you.
