I love Stranger Things so when I first saw this tag (on LauReads) I knew I had to do it. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet I’d highly recommend you do, it’s a great show. There will be no spoilers in this post and the original tag video can be found here. So let’s get onto the questions.
1. EPIC INTRO: Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page.
– The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg – I loved how this book just instantly intrigues you with the intro being a murder scene and then a police interview before going back to tell you what happened. It instantly grabbed my attention and I loved the book.
2. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself.
– Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis – I decided not to go with the obvious choice of Harry Potter for this question but I also feel that Narnia is quite an obvious choice as well, who wouldn’t want to experience Narnia.
3. SQUAD GOALS: Name your favourite bookish group of friends.
– Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh – I love the friendships that have developed over the course of the Guild Hunter series. The relationships between all the characters are so interesting and I love how deep the friendships they have made are.
4. ABC’s & CHRISTMAS LIGHTS: Name your favourite unhinged character.
– The Savior (Black Dagger Brotherhood book 17) by J.R. Ward – For years the author of this series has teased Murhder, who is a character that has been described as being very unhinged in previous books. I didn’t find Murhder as unhinged as I expected him to be but I did like his character.
5. THE UPSIDE DOWN: Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected.
– Vengeful (The Villains book 2) by V.E. Schwab – I really liked the first book in this series and thought the plot and characters were interesting but I disliked Vengeful, the characters in Vengeful didn’t seem like the same characters in Vicious.
6. MAD SCIENTISTS: Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of.
– Unwind by Neal Shusterman – This series felt like it could really happen and it’s so chilling to think about. In this world parents can sign a form to have their child ‘unwound’ which means their body is harvested for parts and the whole book is so creepy and scary to think about.
7. DEMOGORGON: Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls.
– The Passage by Justin Cronin – The Virals from this trilogy are scary, they’re like fast zombies and the way they’re described in this book is very frightening.
8. CLIFFHANGER ENDING: Name a book that left you wanting more.
– I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman – This is a standalone book and the story does wrap up so it doesn’t have a cliffhanger ending but I really liked the characters and wanted to read more about them so that’s why I chose it for this question.
