The Book Life Tag!

 

Hey everyone! Let’s celebrate the return of my book blog posts with a bookish tag! I randomly found this on Books & Other Pursuits. They did this tag in April so it was a while ago but that’s okay. They’re not the creator of this so I can’t give them complete credit though. The point of this tag is to answer questions with places or characters from books. It’s pretty short and simple. Let’s get started!


Who Would Your Parents Be?

This is a pretty basic answer but I’m going to say Molly and Arthur Weasley. They seem like they would be the best parents in the world (besides my own of course). Plus they’re gingers like me so that’s a plus.

Who Would Be Your Sister?

Definitely Blue Sargent from the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. I just finished the fourth book The Raven King and I loved it! I’m absolutely in love with the series. Blue would definitely have to be my sister because she’s like me because she’s more of a follower. She’s also just a great person overall.

Who Would Be Your Brother?

Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell definitely. He would be such a kind and humorous brother. He also works at Starbucks which of course would have its benefits.

Who Would Be Your Pet?

This is going to be so repetitive but I’m going to say Chainsaw from the Raven Cycle series. He is such a loyal raven to Ronan and would definitely be there no matter what.

Where Would You Live?

Green Gables from the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. The land is filled with so many trees and lots of places to roam. The actual house would be a wonderful place to explore and relax in.

This is the house that was owned by relatives of Montgomery. It’s the Green Gables house that the house in the Anne series is apparently based off of.


Where Would You Go To School?

Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series of course!

Who Would Be Your Best Friend? 

Liesel from the Book Thief by Markus Zusak. She’s just as into books as I am, she’s a badass and doesn’t always follow the rules. Liesel would be a great friend.

Who Would Be Your Significant Other? *SPOILER?*

This is a tough one.. I’m going to say Gus from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Even though he dies (this shouldn’t be a spoiler but just in case…) he would be a fantastic boyfriend. He’s such a sweet guy and good-looking too!

I tag anyone who wants to participate!


That’s a wrap! Do you agree or disagree with my choices? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book tags!

Book Review|Are We There Yet-David Levithan

Hey everyone! It’s the beginning of the work week! I’m still in school and am on winter break. No stress for a bit. Today I am going to finally be doing a review of Are We There Yet By David Levithan. It’s not a well-known book but is still in the teen genre. Let me know if you’ve read the book or plan to after reading this review!


“Although it is such a singular word, there are many variations of alone. There is the alone of an empty beach at twilight. There is the alone of an empty hotel room. There is the alone of being caught in a throng of people. There is the alone of missing a particular person. And there is the alone of being with a particular person and realizing you are still alone.”

# of Pages: 215

Genre: Young Adult/Family

My Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Publication: March 13th, 2007


A Bit of A Summary:

Are We There Yet is a story about two brothers named Danny and Elijah. Danny is 23 years old and has a job. He’s hardworking and successful. Elijah is 16 and still in High School. He’s penniless and has drug issues. They have a strained relationship. When their parents send them off on a trip to Italy, they’re forced to spend countless hours together. When Elijah meets Julia, Danny is cast off, and the brothers are separated once again. Julia’s unsure about her feelings and Danny is forced to make a decision. He can either honor his relationship with his brother or follow his heart. Read the book to find out what he chooses!


Cons:

There are some using and mentions of drugs in this book. If that bugs you, steer clear. It’s overall plot is a bit dry. The story is told from a third person point of view. It’s interesting but doesn’t always do the story its justice. There isn’t much of a back story on any of the characters but you get to learn a bit about them.


Overall:

Are We There Yet is a quick read. I enjoyed the setting and the descriptions of Italy and it’s attractions.  It’s not my favorite book but is definitely worth a try.


That’s a wrap! What did you think about this style of book reviewing? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!

Title: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

Author: Jenny Han

Jenny Han

# of Pages: 369

Genre: Young Adult/Contemporary

Published: April 15th, 2014

My Rating: 4/5 stars ****


Summary Provided By Goodreads:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.


My Thoughts:

I have heard only good about this book. I enjoyed it greatly. The imagery was fantastic. It really helped me picture who the characters really are. Jenny Han is an amazing writer. She knows how to draw you in. There are some parts that make me question the main character. That’s why it’s not a five star rating. If you enjoy a good contemporary novel full of love, drama and secrets, this is for you!


That’s a wrap! Have you read this book? If so, what are your thoughts? Please keep them spoiler free as always. Stay tuned for a review of the sequel once I can get my hands on it!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!
