Today I am doing the Book Sacrifice Tag which is when you are given certain scenarios and you have to pick a book that you would want to sacrifice. This is a great tag as you get to hear about books that I don’t like that much.
1) An Over-Hyped book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a bookstore, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing, but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan – For me this was so overhyped. When I read it I felt that nothing really happened. This book is about two guys called Will Grayson who meet. On the blurb, it says that their lives change forever, but I felt that this was a very dramatic statement and nothing dramatic happened during the story. I also wasn’t a fan of David Levithan’s writing style.
2) A Sequel: Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han – I felt that the first book was such a disappointment so the second and third books for me were just unnecessary. I disliked the characters as I found them very annoying especially Belly she seemed much younger than she was and she was constantly whining.
3) A Classic: Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?
Lord of the Flies by William Golding – I really did not get on with this book. I found parts of the story confusing at times and ultimately this was not the story for me.
4) Your least favourite book of life!: Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?
The Dinner by Herman Koch- This was just dreadful, I thought it was going to be really gripping and exciting but I was really disappointed and I did not enjoy it. The characters were not easy to relate to and I really disliked them.
