Oh boy! I love tag time. Today it’s the Ten Book Challenge Tag, which I found on my namesake Alicia’s blog A Kernel of Nonsense.
Here are the rules:
“List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Do not take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They do not have to be the “right” books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. Paste these instructions and tag 10 friends, including me, so I can see your list.”
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This book was just pure magic. The writing style and the characters and plot were the perfect combination.
- The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
I love this series. It’s middle grade but so much more than that. I fell in love with all the characters. They’re so amazing.
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Probably the best contemporary romance series ever. These books are not only the perfect love stories, but reasonable ones as well. And that’s what makes them so good.
- Fire by Kristin Cashore
I love this series. The main characters are so badass, but so like me. And the romance is great too. Amazing fantasy.
- Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Same reasons as above.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Because of the feels, man.
- Matilda by Roald Dahl
She’s the sweetest, most clever little genius ever. And the story is amazing and perfect.
- The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
This is a middle grade, but inspires so much thought and feeling.
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I won’t ever talk about it, but I won’t forget it either.
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
The feelings and the thought processes at the end…really hit me. Like wow. Reality check.
Fun fun fun! I love tags!! I tag Jillie and anyone else who wants to do this. Go for it!
