The School Book Tag

Hey, everyone! I got this tag from Sara @ Freadrom Library. Actually, she didn’t even tag me in it but it looked like so much fun that I decided to steal it for myself. Look at me, a hardened criminal. OH THE THINGS I DO FOR BLOGGING.


the price of saltMATH

A book that has two characters who equal perfection

Carol and Therese from The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith! Wasn’t sure if this part of the tag referred to a book with two perfect characters, or a book with a perfect romance, so I decided to go with the latter because I love talking about these two! They’re… just… ahhhh. MY COLD, BITTER LESBEAN HEART MELTED WHEN I READ THIS BOOK.

city of bonesSCIENCE

A book that I found hard to get into

I know I probably say this like every other post, AT LEAST, but I really struggled with City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. And the rest of the books in the series… I meant to read the sequel aaages ago but instead I got through, like, three chapters and then returned it to the library. A lot of my friends love her books and so I feel that I should read them for that reason, but I’m also lowkey thinking about abandoning them (the books, not my friends!) because they’re soooo long and soooo dull and I have better ways to spend my time. For instance, I could take a nap instead.

P.S. It kind of bothers me that science was described here as something that’s hard to get into, because that’s SUCH a stereotype… and it’s so subjective, too! I loved science and math was what I struggled with. My mom loves both math and science, but finds English hard to get into. So it does seem a little outdated to describe it that way. OH WELL.

the raven boysENGLISH

A book that should be a modern classic

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – on second thought, the entire series should be! Today’s theme is evidently ” books that I already fangirl about too much,” because I swear that I mention the Raven Cycle in every single book tag / bookish top ten list that I post. BUT ONLY BECAUSE MAGGIE STIEFVATER IS A GENIUS. It makes me sad that this series hasn’t won very many awards, at least as far as I know, but I hope that someday it will be recognized for the brilliance that it is and will be placed on a level with A Song of Ice and FireLord of the Rings, and other fantasy greats.

saga volume threeP.E.

A book that I raced to the finish

That would have to be any volume of the Saga series by Brian K. Vaughan! Which reminds me, I still need to review those books… they’re kind of a cross between Game of Thrones and Star Wars, which doesn’t necessarily sound like it would even work, but it does. IT SO DOES. I finally got my hands on volume six the other day and it was just as amazing as all the others!

demon roadMUSIC

A book that reminds me of a song

To me, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons goes hand in hand with Demon Road by Derek Landy (in addition to his Skulduggery Pleasant books), and… well, I know that’s such an obvious song choice that it’s probably cheating or something but I don’t even care. It reminds me of Milo and Amber, as well as Skulduggery and Valkyrie.


I’m tagging:

And as always, feel free to participate whether or not I tagged you. (Or ignore this tag, if you so choose.)


What is your favorite book about school? Is there one that reminds you of a particular subject, especially one not listed here? And what’s the best book you’ve read so far this school year?!

    SAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Dude yes. I always race to get through those, and then I usually end up reading the volumes two or three more times before I return them to the library. xD I like those stories a whole lot. I can also get what you mean about the City of Bones being a hard book to get into. The first book really made me laugh at some key parts, but when I think about getting the next book, I don’t really feel any particular drive because… I dunno. I just wasn’t compelled. It’s okay if I don’t know what happens next for right now.

    Also, I agree about science. PLUS there was a perfect opportunity to make a chemistry pun, and it didn’t. I think when I do this I will definitely be making that change. 🙂 Thanks for the tag!
