The Wonderstruck Book Tag

Hey everyone! Guess it’s time for a good old Book Tag post… God, I haven’t done one in forever. I initially thought I’d continue with my last post and make this one about another one of my Illustrator creations, but well…I came across this tag on The Tea Reader‘s channel and couldn’t help myself. You know how I am with Book tags – OBSESSED!

Anyway, what really caught my eye about this tag was how it blended 2 of my most favorite things in the world – books and Taylor Swift. I mean, I doesn’t get better than this. Since I’m doing a book tag after what seems like ages, I’d rather not waste anymore time and jump right to it!

Rules:

  • Link back to the creator
  • Answer as many or as few of the questions as you’d like.
  • Feel free to use any of the graphics in this post.
  • Tag however many people you’d like at the end!

 

Identical by Ellen Hopkins

To say that this book left me shell shocked would be an understatement. I remember felling the terror and hatred tingling down my spine as I turned each page, eager to find out what happens next. The story is truly heart wrenching and I think that this novel is a MUST READ!

The Color Purple by Angie Thomas

This novel completely changed my life. As an IB student, I wrote my Extended Essay on it. I remember crying. laughing and felling angry while reading this book. In short, it was an emotional roller coaster. This book deals with the inhuman treatment received by African American women in the late 19th century. Through this book, I have grown as an individual and have acquired a whole new perspective of the world.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I mean, what can I say? I absolutely adored this book. As an American-Indian myself, there were so many parts of the book where I completely related to Dimple’s character. Thankfully, my parents aren’t as strict as hers, but you get the picture. This was a fun, light, and quirky read and it would be a dream come true if this book became a movie. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way!

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Okay, I know people are gonna judge me for this, but whatever. It is what it is. Now that I look back, I know that this novel isn’t as great as I initially thought it was…but I mean, I was completely in love with this book as a young teenager. I swear, I even wanted an Edward Cullen in my life! I still enjoy going back to this novel every once in a while.

The Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne

This was, I think, the first chapter book that I read when I was 6 years old. This is the series which made me fall in love with reading to begin with. These books were so informative that I swear, till date, half of my general knowledge comes from these books. How else would I know so much about Vikings and tornadoes? (if you know, you know) Every time I see this book, I’m transported back to when I was a kid and used to hide under my blanket with a flashlight, reading way past my bedtime.

Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen

I loved the complex character of Ever in this novel. The constant battle that takes place between who she wants to be and who she has to be is quite beautifully portrayed. In the end though, she finds her footing and I just think I saw bits and pieces of myself in her character, making it such a wonderful read.

The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brian

This book was part of my school curriculum and I initially didn’t think much of it. Yet, as I went over this classic again and again, each time I read the book I discovered new aspects. I think I grew with the novel and learnt so much about human nature and society. The fact that I could never imagine myself in such horrific situations made the content of the novel come across more poignantly.

Field Notes On Love by Jennifer E. Smith

I love Smith’s books and knew that this was gonna be a mind blowing read the second I saw her name on the cover. I don’t wanna give too much away in case you haven’t read this book yet (what are you doing with your life?!?!) but I guarantee that you’ll fall in love with this sweet romance just like I did…

Educated by Tara Westover

I think I re-read this novel one too many times. But guess what? I plan on rereading it soon. To say that I was obsessed with this book would be an understatement. I recommended this book to EVERYONE! People actually started getting irritated, the amount I used to rant about this book. I have no regrets though. This book made me realize the so many things I took for granted and how I should appreciate and be grateful for everything that I have. Please read this book already!

 

And with that I come to the end of this post. Wow, now that I’m looking at it, this post is quite long, don’t you think? I can never stop myself once I start ranting about books…sorry? Anyway, let me know if you love any of these books as much as I do. Additionally, if you think you would’ve tagged some other book, let me know so that id I haven’t read that book yet, I can add it to my never ending TBR!

If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged! I’d love it if you dropped your link down below so that I can take a look at your post as well. Thanks for your time!
