The Fall for Books Tag

book tag

Soooo, Autumn is almost over, and I still haven’t posted this tag. I haven’t posted anything lately, actually… I won’t go into details, but, you know, life happened, and I just needed some time away. Another reason is that, even though I really want to go back to writing this blog, I’m just not feeling very inspired at the moment. I want to make this blog better, but I’m not sure how, so I just stopped writing. Anyway, let’s do this fun tag and hope for the best, shall we?

Thank you dear Rachel @paceamorelibri  for tagging me, and I’m sorry it took this long. :*

THE RULES

  • Please link back to this post so I can see your answers!
  • Have fun!

One of the first books you fell in love with:

Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. That’s the first book I remember falling in love with. The characters were plush toys which talked, and I was obsessed with plush toys (I still am, to be honest). What child doesn’t want their plush toys to come alive? My favourite was Eeyore. Sad little donkey stole my heart forever.

A book you knew you were going to love from the first page

There are a few, but the last book I fell in love with from the very beginning was Bodies of Water by Sarah Moss. This book deals with many important topics, mostly the position of women in Victorian England, but it’s also very subtle. It is full of details, emotions and thoughts of the main charater(s). This is the first Sarah Moss book that I’ve read, but I will definitely read more.

A book you didn’t think you would love as much as you do

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo. I’ve read it for college, and I expected it to be good, but I didn’t expect it to become one of my favourite books ever. It’s so sad, but the author also makes some jokes which was unexpected. I just loved everything about this book! P.S. The Disney film is different, of course, and much happier, but it’s still the darkest Disney film. And I think it’s really underestimated!Just listen to the villain, Frodo, singing Hellfire. It’s terrifying and amazing!

The character who will always have a place in your heart

Well, I already mentioned Eeyore. XD So for this question I’ll say Sorcha from Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, because she’s the first who came to mind. I loved her. And, also, some Harry Potter characters, of course.

Character you love on the page, but would never want to meet in real life

I usually really like flawed characters, though I’d probably not like them in real life. Now, my favourite character from comics EVER is Poison Ivy. I just adore her! But, in real life, she’d probably be very terrifying. That’s why I love her. 😉

Literary couple you will ship until the day you die

Lestat and Louis from The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. I mean, who doesn’t ship them, right?

An author whose writing style you fell in love with

Daphne du Maurier, definitely. She is able to draw me into the story and create a wonderful atmosphere. I just wish I could write like that, create something that would truly make the readers feel what the character is feeling, and experience the world of the novel.

A book recommended to you by a friend/family member that you quickly fell for too

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini was recommended to me by a friend, and I loved it. It was so heart-wrenching and wonderful. The author actually dedicated it to Afghan women, who suffered so much throughout history, and are still suffering. He tells the story of two women, and I just can’t say who I liked more.

Piece of book-related merchandise that you had to own

I actually own more comics merchandise than book merchandise. I have two Spider-man and two Deadpool T-shirts, and this Spider-man mug. I also have a tiny Kafka mug, which is for decoration, not to drink from.

An author whose works you love so much that you auto-buy/borrow their new releases

I really can’t think of one… Most of my favourite authors are dead. XD But I assume Sarah Moss might become one of those. Han Kang, too.

And that’s it! I’ll tag a few people now, and I hope you’ll have fun with the tag (bot no pressure to do it if you don’t want to). 🙂

  1. Yess! Eeyore was always my favourite as well! And still is, haha, I always felt so so sad for him & wanted to give him cuddles 🙂

    Sorcha is a great character! She is my favourite from the whole Sevenwaters series. Just like the first book. It will always have a special place in my heart.

  2. I really need to give the Hunchback of Notre Dame another chance! Les Mis is my favorite book of all time and I tried reading Hunchback, but I was in a reading slump so I just picked it up at the wrong time. I think I got about a third of the way through, but that was years ago so I need to just start over. Also it’s one of my favorite Disney films too, Hellfire is SO CREEPY AND AMAZING.

  3. Hellfire is my favourite disney villain song EVER! It’s so creepy, but so amazing as well. And I completely agree that The Hunchback of Notre Dame in one of the darker Disney movies, but I have heard that the book is even darker and more horrifying. (Which I haven’t read yet.)
    I adore both Spiderman and Deadpool and I NEED to get my hands on some of their merchandise. Hopefully I will get some soon, especially since I’m going to get some Christmas money soon! 😀
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤

  4. Cute tag! 🙂 I enjoyed reading your answers. Poison Ivy is definitely a cool character, but like you said, one probably not best met in real life. 😛 I do love her though. I was actually thinking about maybe dressing up as her this coming Halloween. Possibly. I always have such a hard time deciding what to be, which is probably why I’m already thinking about it. lol
    Your Spider-Man mug is adorable. Comic merch is seriously some of the best merch out there. There’s so many fun things to pick from for all of your beloved characters. 😀

    1. Yes, she’s so amazing! We don’t really have Halloween here, but we have a carnival (usually in February) and I thought I would go as Poison Ivy one year. And then I don’t go at all because it’s cold and I don’t like being in crowds. 😂😂😂
