Book Tag: The Book Feels Tag

Every book you read makes you feel a certain way, right? This book is completely about the feelings you get when your reading books!

This amazing tag was created by the lovely Tays Infinite Thoughts! If you plan on doing this tag too, don’t forget to also mention her!

A Book that made you smile or laugh

I Need a lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool – Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella

The first time I saw this book I already had to laugh! The cover and title are so funny and the book itself is too! It’s a really funny book about the average life of this mother & daughter duo. I don’t normally read funny books but I’m still happy that I did pick this one up.

A Book that made you sad or want to cry

Full Tilt – Emma Scott

That ending!! It broke my heart! I finished this on a Sunday morning and I had to stay in bed for 10 minutes after because my eyes were all tear stained and I didn’t want any weird looks or questions from my family. It’s often called The Fault in our Stars for adults. Definitely read this one. You won’t regret it.

A Book that you love

Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor

There are so so so many books I love on this gorgeous planet and it’s almost impossible to pick just one, so I’m going to choose the best book that came out this year. That’s definitely Strange the Dreamer! So dreamy and wonderful. Just a perfect piece of Young Adult fantasy. I need more books like these in my life.

A Book that you didn’t particularly like

Caraval – Stephanie Garber

There was such a big hype surrounding this book and I was completely ready to join the hype train! I read the book and… I absolutely hated it. I hated it even more because I was so sure I was going to love it. Gorgeous cover, good reviews; almost nothing could go wrong. But apparently it did. Don’t let this stop you from reading this book, because obviously I’m a minority.

A book that was made into a movie that you liked

The only huge disappointment was the house elf kitchen in the fourth book. How could they not include it in the movie! I’m still feeling all the pain my little heart felt after leaving the theatre and having all my hopes of seeing this kitchen come to life crushed. It actually was one of the things I was looking forward to in that movie. Yep, that sucked…

A book that was made into a movie that you didn’t like

Eragon – Christopher Paolini
I still remember it so so clearly. A very little Lena went to see this movie with her parents and was so exited for all the goodness that this book was going to be. Obviously it wasn’t good. Don’t forget the fact that the movie makers killed of a character that was immensly important for the story in the next books, so that they couldn’t go on and make the other movies. Afterwards, I don’t know if that actually was such a bad thing… They couldn’t ruin the other books so that was good, right?

A book you have mixed feelings about

Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng

To be honest I just started of completely wrong with this book. I thought it would be a book similar to the books of Liane Moriarty (it obviously was my first Celeste Ng book). I can’t say that I didn’t like it. I felt for a long time like I wasn’t getting into the story and that the story would become more fast paced after a while. It wasn’t until after the first 50% of the book that I understood I was just reading a slow paced book that had nothing in common with Moriarty’s books except for the genre. I think if I was able to read this book again with a different mind set I would definitely like it so much better now. It even makes me a little bit sad that I ruined the book a bit for myself.

A book you haven’t read but are totally excited about

Markswoman – Rati Mehrotra

I recently won my very first Goodreads giveaway! I tried for over a year!! and entered over 400 giveaways and I never won a single book. Now, I finally won my first and I think I definitely hit the jackpot because this book seems so incredibly good! I’m so happy already with this book and I just can’t wait until it arrives and I can start devouring this glorious book.

A book that made you angry

The Men With the Pink Triangle –  Heinz Heger

I don’t get angry easily, I’m actually a really docile fluff of a human being. But the closest I came to being angry because of a book was with this one. It’s written by a gay survivor of the holocaust and it’s such an amazing book. I was angry about all the injustice all those people had to go through for so long! Definitely read this one, everyone should read this.

A book you feel like you can relate to

Truly Madly Guilty – Liane Moriarty

I read a lot of fantasy and I have to be honest.. I can absolutly not relate in any way to any of those bad ass heroes and heroines. I’m just a wuss and when they run toward the danger I would run in the other direction as fast as my short little legs could carry me. So I think Truly Madly Guilty is the closest I come to relating to a character. Liane Moriarty is the queen of character development. She does characters so good. Actually it doesn’t matter what she writes, I would read for the amazing characters. There are so many times when her characters really come to life in this book and often I feel like I do the exact same completely human and not perfect things her characters do to!

 

Thank you for reading my book tag! I will probably tagging a few people on Tumblr to do this tag, but if you feel like doing this tag, consider yourself tagged!!
