Australia let us rejoice for we are young and freeeeee… okay enough of that! I was tagged by the creator of this wonderful tag: Julia @Picnicreads, and the lovely Michaela @Floralinkbooks to do the Aussie book tag. Thank you my wonderful Aussie book blogger friends! Check out there posts and pages guys if you haven’t already 😀
A Character you want to cuddle ALL DAY LONG
I want to cuddle so many characters and just keep them safe and away from all the badness in the world. I would cuddle Kell from Jesper and Wylan from Six of Crows and Jem from The Infernal Devices.
A book that you love that everyone else hates
Guys if you don’t like Vegemite I don’t think we can be friends… okay maybe we can because that just means more Vegemite for me right!
I love Shatter Me! I know a lot of people love this series but even more really dislike the first book because of the writing but I loved seeing Juliette’s thought process and all the crossed out lines.
Favorite Fictional Squad
Why must you make this so hard Julia! WHY! My Favorite has to be my amazing Throne of Glass Court: Aeline, Rowan, Lysandra, Aedion and just quietly Manon, Dorian, Chaol.
My babies! Ah not one of these people are allowed to die I forbid it I will re write the ending for myself if they do because I won’t be able to deal.
Most recent 5 star read
Well I tend to be very generous with my stars but I’m trying to be more objective lately but my most recent 5 star read was It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. Arh I loved this book and all it stood for.
Favorite book from an Author from your country:
Illuminae by Amie Koufmann and Jay Kristoff! Lookie two Aussie authors it’s a bonus answer
A Book you like to look at but it physically hurts to read
Rebel Belle by Rachael Hawkins. This book is beyond pretty in its pastel colors but I couldn’t stand the Main character and felt like ripping my hair out while I was reading her. Sorry guys I know it’s a popular book but we just didn’t get along *shrugs*
A book that is grim but an iconic must read
The Green Mile, this book is grim and sad but truly fantastic and definitely a must read for everyone.
Great Barrier Reef
A Book that had you gaping in awe
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint- Exupery. This book is full of wonder, it make you think about the grim realities of Adulthood, being a child and just life itself. I never read this as a child and picked it up last month and I highly recommend it to every person.
A light fluffy book that you couldn’t help but love
Since You’ve been gone by Morgan Matson, This book is fun and real. There is a lot of light and happy bits but it is also a great coming of age/out of your shell story and I adored the Main character. Also Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before & Stephanie Perkins Anna and The French Kiss is a fluff ball of fluffyness.
A Genre/Author you reach for to get you out of a slump
Contemporary as a Genre and Colleen Hoover as an Author. Contemporary’s are my go to when fantasy books are weigh on my brain and I need some brain candy to stay away from the dreadful slump BUT Colleen Hoover is a go to too get out of a slump if I’m in it, her books just suck me in and don’t let me go until I’ve devoured ever sentence twice. Any of the below are pretty good for breaking out of a slump:
TAGGED, TAG, TAGGY, TAG, TAG, TAG, TAG, TAG, TAG, TAG
I’ve included you guys from all parts of the world because even though this is called the Aussie Book Tag its questions are for everyone 🙂 Also Do you guys not know what an Icy Pole is? I was listening to Rainbow Rowell’s panel on the weekend and she was shocked that that was a real word here.
