I was tagged to do this amazing book tag by my friend Michelle @ Book Adventures! Thank you Michelle and you guys be sure to head over and not only check out her answers for this but also her amazing blog! I mean it…..do it, do it now!
I’m actually really excited to do this tag finally because I freaking love The Sims!
This tag was originally created by Booktuber Hailey in Bookland.
The Original Sims – The best author debut.
Kingdom of Ash and Briars by Hannah West
This was an absolutely excellent debut and I cannot wait to read more by this author, she did such a wonderful job with her world building and weaving so many different fairy tale retellings into it! (highly recommend checking this out by the way!)
The Grim Reaper – Saddest character death.
*****WARNING: SPOILERS FOR HARRY POTTER BELOW!!!*****
(Even though I feel like everyone knows anyways….)
How about just all of the Harry Potter deaths, that about sums it up. These all DESTROYED ME!
Sims Getting Stuck – A character that just got in the way.
Maia from “Fate of Flames” is one of the most worthless characters I’ve ever come across, she was the main character and I feel like she did nothing but get in the way and fuck everything up!
Simlish – A book with amazing writing.
“Daughter of Smoke and Bone” & “Lips Touch: Three Times” by Laini Taylor, seriously has the most gorgeous writing ever! Also “The Forbidden Wish” by Jessica Khoury deserves an honorable mention as well!
Expansion Packs – A series where the books keep on getting better.
I read this a long time ago when I was in middle school but I read “Inkheart” and it was good but nothing crazy amazing but when I read the sequel “Inkspell” it blew my mind! It was so much better! The finale “Inkdeath” is just as good as well. Definitely a series that got better as it went.
Sim Romance – The worst case of insta-love.
Of course there are PLENTY of YA books that have insta-love but this book was one of the worst ones because of said insta-love but also because this book turned out to be more insta-lovey romance than anything that involved pirates. I was infuriated, I don’t think I’ve ever been more mad at a book….
Cheats – A book that was entirely unrealistic.
I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi so technically ALL the books I read are unrealistic….but I’ll go with “Throne of Glass” being unrealistic anyways since the main character is supposed to be the deadliest assassin in the kingdom and she spend the book 1.) not killing anyone 2.) talking about shoes and dresses 3.) being moony-eyed over TWO different boys and 4.) complaining.
So yeah I would say this was unrealistic…..
Needs Fulfillment – A character who made all the wrong decisions.
Maia from “Fate of Flames”. Again.
Error Code 12 – A series that started off great but went downhill from there.
I actually haven’t really finished a ton of series, I’m good at starting them and never finish them but one that definitely got WORSE was the “House of Night” series by P.C. & Kirsten Cast. I read the first book and it was just okay but that series just kept going on and on and on and on needlessly. I don’ even know why I continued with it for as long as I did!
The Sims Vortex – A book/series that completely engrossed you.
I’m going to go with both the “Gone” series by Michael Grant and the “Jasper Dent” series by Barry Lyga. Both are absolutely amazing and pretty dark, and I was obsessed with both of them and could not stop reading until I finished both series!
Tag! You’re It!
