The very original Social Media Book Tag video was made by Faulty Devices, and then shortly after Ariel Bissett modified some of the questions. I’ve used a combination of the two tags here, because I liked a couple better than others and thought it might be more fun to join the two.
Facebook: A book everyone pressured you into reading
So not everyone told me to read it, but I had (years earlier) read Looking for Alaska and hadn’t really enjoyed it that much. I was hesitant to read TFIOS but everyone online and my booky friends were saying how good it was. And they were 100% correct. Loved this book a lot and so glad I read it.
Tumblr: A book you read before it was cool
Twilight’s popularity sort of blew up way after the first and second book came out (at least here in New Zealand), but I had read them before they were ‘cool’. At the time I did really enjoy them. There weren’t too much vampire books for teens at that time (that I was aware of then anyway), so it was pretty cool. I don’t mind the books at all, it’s the movies that totally ruined it for me. Anyway, definitely liked that book because it was cool.
Myspace: A book you don’t remember whether you liked or not
According to Goodreads, I gave it a 4 stars, so I must have enjoyed it. But i literally can’t even remember reading it. I couldn’t really give you an plot details at all. Perhaps I should reread it.
Instagram: A book that was so beautiful that you and to Instagram it
So I Instagram most of the books I read (#currentlyreading is the great Instagram hashtag), but there are a few that are especially beautiful. My copy of Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha vanLeer is so beautiful though. You can read the whole post on it here.
Youtube: A book you wish would be turned into a movie
The entire time I was reading this all I could think was ‘this would be a great movie’ or even a TV show (especially because it’s no a stand alone). I think it would be amazing – the circus feel, the adventure, the costumes would be incredible, and the sets! Ah! The dream! Dear Movie and TV makers of the world, hear my cry!
Skype: a book with characters that you wish you could talk to instead of just reading about
All the characters. Just put me in Hogwarts. I’ll repot mandrakes with you. I’ll pass you ingredients for polyjuice potion. I’ll find your Nargle-taken items. I’ll fight Voldemort. I’ll talk to you! Any of you!
Twitter: Your favourite shortest book
I just love this book. I actually have 2 copies of this book now, and this one is definitely the prettier of the two. I love the illustrations and the writing, and the messages behind it.
Goodreads: A book you recommend to everyone
I just loved this book series so much. I don’t really suggest it to people who I know don’t enjoy that genre, but for anyone who might even slightly enjoy it, then it’s my ‘ohmygosh you have to read this’ book. You, dear blog reader, should read this book. If me liking it isn’t enough, here’s the link to my review.
Loved doing this tag! Have you ever done this Social Media tag? Or one of the versions? If you have, leave the link to it down in the comments; I’d love to see your answers for these! If you haven’t, what do you think of the books I’ve given? Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
