The Bohemian Rhapsody Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday (2)

I was tagged by the always wonderful Michelle over at Book Adventures where she hosts a weekly feature called Book Tag Thursdays (which this tag was a part of) so be sure to head on over and check that out. Book Tag Thursdays is tons of fun so I hope you decide to participate! This tag was originally created by Emma at The Bookish Underdog.

Also I’m just going to say who doesn’t love this song? I mean just hearing the words “Bohemian Rhapsody” instantly gets it stuck in my head and I love it.

I’ll link up each book I choose with my reviews if I have them as well! Also there will be excessive use of gifs!

Mama,  Just Killed A Man: A fictional character’s death that really upset you.

****Spoilers for The Knife of Never Letting Go!!!!!****

51NcMaqTCsL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

I’m following suit with Michelle and saying Manchee from “The Knife of Never Letting Go” because honestly I felt like a shallow husk of my former self after reading through that. I mean he’s a sweet, loyal, talking dog! Who does that?! Patrick Ness apparently.


Carry On, Carry On: Pick a book that was hard to keep reading, but was worth it in the end.

I don’t really have many of these and I didn’t want to pick the same book as Michelle again (because “Gone Girl” is the perfect answer) so I’m going with “The Winner’s Curse”.  This wasn’t anything excruciating to read through but the beginning was pretty slow and uneventful, however pushing through to the end was very worth it. All of the action and politics picked right up and makes you scramble for the sequel!


Sends Shivers Down My Spine: Pick a book with a beautiful cover/spine.

“Vengeance Road” even though this book wasn’t my favorite I still think the cover is absolutely gorgeous, so much detail!


Goodbye Everybody, I’ve Got To Go: A book that you couldn’t finish.

“Once Upon A Dream”, a twisted retelling of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Sounds awesome right? Wrong. It is not awesome. The writing and characters and story were all bland, bland, bland. I couldn’t even finish half of the book let alone the whole thing.


Thunderbolt and Lightning, Very, Very Frightening: Which book did you find very, very frightening. 

“The Girl From The Well” because I’m a big baby, some people didn’t find this book scary at all but I was terrified. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I watched “The Grudge” when I was in the 4th grade and I was so scared I couldn’t sleep alone for a week. So if you want to scare me…..Asian girls with long dark hair in their faces.

Don’t get me wrong though this was the FUN kind of scared, if that makes sense.


Bismillah, No! We Will Not Let You Go: Which book/series do you wish there had been more of.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians (but really who wouldn’t say Harry Potter for this? I figured everyone would say that though). I zipped right through this entire series and I KNOW Rick Riordan has other series based in the same setting but I loved Percy okay?


Mamma Mia, Mamma Mia: Which book/series should be made into a musical?

 Okay, okay picture this “A Song of Ice and Fire: The Musical”. Can you imagine the Red Wedding with song and dance? I can and it’s glorious. I apologize for not really taking this question seriously….


The Head Banging Bit: Which book made you face-palm?

“Blackhearts” because I wanted actual pirates and not this whole insta-love-fest that I actually got….. with zero pirates.

And to this book I say:


Oh Baby, Can’t Do This To Me, Baby: Pick a moment from a book where you felt the author was being mean to you.

“Nimona” because it ended and there wasn’t more.


Nothing Really Matters To Me: Which characters did you not care about?

Pretty much everyone from “City of Bones” I was not a fan of this book at all and I could have cared less about any of the characters.

I’m not going to tag anybody this time around but PLEASE feel free to do this tag if you want to! You’re tagged! Spread the “Bohemian Rhapsody” love!!

    The Girl from the Well is a fave !! Have you read the 2nd book? I love the Vengeance Road’s cover. You rarely see a book cover like that and yes, PJO series should have 15 books. hahaha

      Not yet but I have it, every time I think about reading it I remember that I’ll probably be really scared while reading it and jump at every noise for a week.
      I can’t complain too much about not enough PJO when I have the whole HoO series to read still!

        hahahaha! You better read HOO soon.. The Trials of Apollo is really good ♥

        Hah! The 2nd book was more creepier and funnier if you know what I mean. Tark got to narrate that one hahaha

        I knoooow I want to read Hidden Oracle so bad after all the glowing reviews! And I don’t know if it comforts me knowing the second one is creepier haha but I get the funnier part since I found some of Okiku’s “observations” to be amusing in the first place. 🙂

        Tark’s narration reminds me of Percy in a way. hahaha That’s why I love the 2nd one. The author was able to blend, humor and horror perfectly ♥

        HoO is also amazing but I’m not much of a fan of Jason. I’m more team Percy hahaha

        I probably won’t like Jason that much either then because I am 100% a Percy fan haha 🙂

        Hmm…that does sound boring. Nobody wants a goody two shoes Percy haha. Oh well I’m just going to have to deal with it since reading the HoO series is now mandatory haha 🙂

    I haven’t read either of Liz Braswell’s twisted Disney books, but apparently the Aladdin one is also pretty awful. Which is a shame because I was so excited for Disney-sanctioned twisted fairytales.

      I had the same feelings, I was excited for a twist on a Disney fairytale but it just failed on all levels for me and after seeing all the negative reviews for the Aladdin one I wasn’t surprised when I didn’t like this one. It feels like such wasted potential 😦

    Oh my god yes at Nimona! I need more so badly. I also really want to read The Girl From the Well because I loooove horror. And haha, YES at not caring about anyone in City of Bones that was my thought exactly whilst reading it.

      I wish Noelle Stevenson would write more Nimona or at least something else like it!
      The Girl From The Well is pretty awesome especially since I think it’s hard to find quality (and scary for that matter) YA horror books. Actually I think we just need more YA horror period.
      So glad I’m not the only one on the “I could care less about City of Bones” boat! There’s a lot of love out there for The Mortal Instruments so I’m always worried about getting mobbed by fangirls, haha. 🙂

        Yes!! It would be so amazing!! I need more so badly.

        Oh my god, yes! YA horror is my favourite and there’s not nearly enough of it, haha.

        Oh my god right! I’m considering trying the rest of the series but I’m worried I’m going to hate it then everyone will hate me 😂

        There’s definitely not enough YA horror, if you ever find more I want to be the first to know! Haha!
        If you wanna read the rest of the series I’d just go for it, I’ll help defend you from the mobs if need be haha 🙂

        A couple of good ones off the top of my head that I can think of are Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz and Say Her Name by Juno Dawson. Welcome to the Dark House is a duology and like every teen slasher ever in book form and it’s such a fun and quick read and Say Her Name is an awesome retelling of Bloody Mary!

        Haha, thanks!! 😂
