Hi guys, I have been so busy for the past couple of weeks. I have been working really long days at work because someone is off sick and I am needed to cover her work. So, I am always really tired or busy. I finally have a day off work and have spent it in the sun, reading, listening to music and just having a relaxing day. I wanted to write at least a couple of blog posts and schedule them for the coming week and saw a Love, Simon book tag going round and I knew I had to take part.
I originally saw this on the booktuber Kathleen (Worthathousandwords) channel so make sure you watch the video below.
Let’s get on with this tag!
1) I Like Your Boots – A Cringey Book Romance
The romance in this book Super Awkward by Beth Garrod is incredibly cringey but that is what makes it great. I found myself pulling faces and cringing for Bella throughout reading this book. I love this book so much and even though the romance is cringey it fits the book perfectly
2) Liberal University – Shout Out Your Favourite Diverse Book!
I recently just finished this book and cannot get over it! I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman. This book is spectacular and is full of diversity. There are two main characters in this book. One of these is Angel a muslim teenage girl and the other is Jimmy a gay transexual mixed race boy. In this book there is also Rowan who is Nigerian and Lister who is Bi. This book is full of diversity and is such a wonderful story you won’t be forgetting about anytime soon.
3) Drunk Simon – An Adorkable Book Character
Aristotle from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. I loved Aristotle’s character, he made me smile so much whilst listening to the audiobook. I’m sure some people thought I was a weirdo if they walked past me whilst I was listening to this book because I couldn’t keep the smile off my face.
4) Blue – Talk About a Book with a Surprise Ending
I am not going to talk about the ending of the book or hat happens but the ending of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff had me sitting there for ages just staring at the wall across from me. I was in shook from the entire book but that ending ruined me.
5) A Goddam Superhero – Talk About a Book Scene that gave you Secondhand Embarrassment
I felt so embarrassed whilst reading the coffee scene right at the beginning of When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. I sat reading it a work I remember the exact moment because I pulled the most shocked and embarrassed face ever. This scene ended up being one of my favourite scenes from the book but it really did make me cringe.
6) Oreos – Pick a Book that is Super Sweet
I had to pick Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon for this section. This book is a book I haven’t forgot about since reading it, I read it in one sitting and loved it. It is such an amazing read. I wasn’t a big fan of the movie but the book is still a book I hold very close to my heart.
7) Ferris Wheel – A Book that took you on an Emotional Ride
Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron took me on one heck of an emotional rollercoaster. My boyfriend found me in a chair one evening in tears because I just couldn’t deal with what happened in this book. I recommend this book to everyone now and will be giving this book a reread very soon.
8) Daniel Radcliffe Phase – Your First Lierary Crush
I have to say Gus from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green for this one. There was something about his character that I loved and he was certainly my first ever book crush.
9) Love, Simon – A Book with a Happy Ending that makes you Believe in Happy Endings
How could I write a Love, Simon book tag without mentioning the book that inspired the film. Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli made me believe happy endings exist. I love this book and can’t believe I put off reading it for so long. I cannot wait to finally see the film in the next couple of weeks with my sister. Everyone needs to go and read the book and then watch the film!
There you have it a Love, Simon book tag. If you want to take part in this tag please do, spread the love for Love, Simon!
