Animal Crossing Book Tag

Once a many year ago, McKenzie @ Bookish Things and Tea tagged me to do her own adorable book tag! It’s the cutest thing. I’ve never played Animal Crossing but I’ve seen it around. I’ve always wanted to play but have never really had a chance to. One day, I shall. Until then, this fun little tag will tide me over. Be sure to check out the original post for this tag on McKenzie’s BE-A-UTIFUL blog. You won’t regret it.

All righty then. Let’s do this thing!

The Rules:

  • Please link back to the original creator of the tag, Bookish Things and Tea.
  • Answer the following Animal Crossing themed book questions.
  • Feel free to use graphics, but be sure to credit Bookish Things and Tea
  • Tag some friends to spread the love!

As an English major, I’m a little ashamed of the number of classics I HAVEN’T read. I’ve read all of Jane Austen’s works, a couple Dickens, one Hemingway and a select few others but that’s about it. I really don’t know how my schooling managed to avoid all the big name classics, but as it happens, I’ve been missing out on most of them these past few years. I recently read Fahrenheit 451 but there are still so many classics I have yet to attend to. One I was hoping to read sometime this year is Frankenstein, probably during Halloween time!

I can’t say it’s definitively my favorite second book in a series, but it IS the first one that came to mind. A Court of Thorns of Roses was interesting but certainly not as engrossing and impactful as A Court of Mist and Fury, a book that I consider to be one of the best YA/NA books in recent years. The characters, the plot, the world-building, and all the crucial themes outlined in this book were just so well done that ACOMAF will forever be a favorite of mine.

Laini Taylor has a way of making her settings feel all kinds of magical. Prague seemed like a land embellished with pure whimsy after I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but Weep in Strange the Dreamer was a land made of pure fantasy and magic. The descriptions of this strange city only lent itself to my love of this wonderful book!

I have to admit that I haven’t really been doing so well in keeping up with newer releases. I’v been doing fairly well in buying them, but not particularly reading them. I have yet to read Children of Blood and Bone, Furyborn, Circe, Reaper at the Gates, and Smoke in the Sun, all of which I would think to be contenders for best new recent releases. I’m currently reading Legendary, and I think that it’s definitely the best new release I’ve read so far but since I haven’t finished it just yet to know for certain, I’ll go with Dread Nation.

The BFG was my first Roald Dahl book and I’ve had the book since I was maybe 5 or 6. Same edition, read several times over and over. Even though I’m an adult now, I don’t mind picking it up and flipping through the pages now and then. This is a book I’ll keep for years to come. I just can’t seem to give it up.

Six of Crows

I feel like this one comes as no surprise, but Six of Crows is basically the definition of character. The characters are blessed with unique personalities, all of which are both endearing and intriguing, and the book itself is laden with character in its setting, plot, lyrical passages, and design. Hands down one of the most rich YAs out there these days, tbh.

I was a fan of the first book, but the second book? I started it in November of 2016 and I STILL HAVE NOT FINISHED IT. Long story short, I hate this book. Mare is terrible, the other characters are terrible, the plot is slow, and I just can’t do it. I plan to read the rest of this series, but first? I gotta get through this one. And once I do, I have no problem never reading or looking at this book again.

I read this book back when I was in high school. I picked it up because I’m fascinated with Ancient Egyptian and Roman history. I can remember that this book bothered me, but only because the material was harsh. Moran didn’t pull any punches in depicting living situations and perceptions back then. While I can’t say the book was perfect, I love it for introducing me to Cleopatra’s daughter, who I never knew existed until I picked this book up.

  1. Thanks so much for the tag Azia. πŸ™‚ I’ll try and get around to this one soon but I have a lot in my queue still so it may take me a year to get around to it as well. πŸ˜€
    I definitely agree with a lot of your answers. A Court of Mist and Fury is one of the best second books in a series I’ve read, and it’s the best book in the ACOTAR series as well. Also I wouldn’t mind not seeing Glass Sword again. I’m not a massive fan of that series and after reading Glass Sword I kind of gave up on it.
    Strange the Dreamer and Six of Crows are both amazing choices as well, both are incredible books.
    Great answers, and again thanks for the tag. πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. Of course! And don’t worry lol. I understand being really behind on tags. I’ve got so many that I’ve adopted the view of “Eh I’ll get to them when I get to them” haha.
      And thank you! If you ever get around to this tag, hope you enjoy it! πŸ˜€

  2. I ADORE Animal Crossing! ❀ When I saw that you tagged me, I got super exited. Thank you for that! πŸ˜€
    I read Frankenstein years ago and really enjoyed it. I hope you do to, when you get around to it. Also, Halloween does seem like a great time of the year to pick it up!
    I NEED to read something by Laini Taylor soon! All of her books sound amazing, plus I have heard amazing things about her writing style.
    I love all the characters in Six of Crows! They are all so wonderful in their own way. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yay!! Glad I tagged you in this one then πŸ˜€ So far I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. I’ve been curious all these years OF watching Frankenstein (and his monster) portrayed in so many horror movies. Gotta read the source of it all!
      YASSS. Please read Laini. Her work is magical. I’m sure you’ll love at least one of her books πŸ˜€
      Six of Crows is purely fantastic. A top-notch YA really ❀

  3. Aaaww this really is a cute tag! Like you, I’ve never played Animal Crossing but know it exists of course (I don’t live under a rock, okay?)
    I actually haven’t read that many classics either and believe me, FEEL THE SHAME, but they’re just too many and most are way too big so…
    I honestly can’t see how Weep can top Prague but hey, I’m here for it! Bring it!
    And also, I’m kind of interested in seeing how horrible Mare and the other characters got because terrible = fun ? Hahahaha
    Anyway, great post Azia, and thank you so much for tagging me ❀ ❀

    1. Yeah, I’m definitely going to start with the shorter classics before moving on to the bigger ones. I think my next endeavor will be Of Mice and Men or Catcher in the Rye. We’ll see though haha
      Oh I know haha. I wanna keep reading Glass Sword, just to see how crappy the characters really get, but it’s still a struggle. But like you, terrible oftentimes = funtimes so LOL
      Thanks so much Sophie! And of course ❀

  4. Heyy thanks so much for the tag, this is actually the cutest ever? (And I’m so sorry for the late response, apparently me and consistent blogging do not go well together and I really need to change that :”))

    The BFG is bringing back waves of nostalgia! (Can you hear me weep. <3) Honestly, all of Dahl's books were such an integral part of my childhood and I think part of what really stoked my love for reading!

    I also haven't read Frankenstein but now I really want to, especially after devouring Kiersten White's retelling of it in The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein (it's such a delightfully haunting book!) also, I totally get you with The Glass Sword, I don't know whether it's because my reading tastes changed or something, but slogging through it was such a bore? which was really surprising, especially because I enjoyed The Red Queen.

    1. Of course! And isn’t it?? And don’t worry about it haha. I’m on a weird blogging schedule too. It’s called the “whenever I feel like it” or the “when I remember to do it” schedule LOL

      BFG is da bomb! Also, Matilda.
