Hiya guys! If you haven’t noticed today is Tuesday and as per tradition it is time for another tag post from yours truly! This week I was on scrolling through the gram–as one does– and came across this really neat tag by the lovely Amanda from A Cup of Tea And an Armful Of Books that is based on the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab.
In the series, there are four different Londons (places) which the series takes place, you have: Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London. Each prompt in this tag correlates to one of these places. So without further ado, let’s play!
DULL LONDON: A BOOK THAT BORED YOU
Oh this one is easy. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Literally was fighting sleep every time I had to read this during High School. The plot was almost predictable, I couldn’t handle Nick’s complacency and acceptance of what everyone else was doing, even when it screamed stupid and should not be done at all. So yeah, I was really bored with the whole thing.
KELL LONDON: A BOOK THAT HOLDS MAGIC FOR YOU
I was going to use Harry Potter but I’m going to stop myself because everyone will use that one and predictability isn’t my style (as I write this tag on a Tuesday like I always do). So instead of good ol’ Harry, I think my next choice would easily be A Court of Misty and Fury by the mastermind, Sarah J. Maas. This book is the second book in the ACOTAR series and by golly this is probably my favorite one in the entire collection, maybe even in all her works to date. This book holds so much vibrancy and spirit in it, that even if it didn’t have fantasy traits to the plot, I would still say it holds magic to me. The characters are something not of this world (literally) the dynamics of the plot and how easily you get drawn in to the lives of each character in the story is something only magic can bring to you.
CREEPY LONDON: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU KEEP YOUR LIGHTS ON
Now this one is a hard one, because not a lot of books scare me because I am the special kind of breed that doesn’t get creeped out easily (seriously, I would watch horror movies when I was little and I would sleep like a baby); so I ‘m going to have to reach back into the recesses of my childhood here and pick one that freaked me out enough that the story stuck with me, cause ya girl can’t sleep with the lights on.
The book I choose is probably going to have to be It by Stephen King. The book is freaking crazy, and had my 14-year-old self looking at clowns a little differently than before.
DEAD LONDON: A BOOK THAT GRADUALLY TOOK OVER YOUR LIFE
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Because I’m trash and will probably forever stan this series, just ask my 9 copies of the series…I don’t have a problem I swear.
Phew! That was so much fun! Thanks Amanda for making this tag!!
If you want to do this tag, I tag YOU! Go forth and prosper young grasshopper!
