Tag Tuesday: the 80s movies tag!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today it’s another tag Tuesday, and today we’re doing the 80s movie tag! The 80s is my favourite era for music, and the movies are pretty great too.

This tag was created by Ashley from Infinite Library, and I was tagged by the lovely Kelly! I also think Kelly made the graphics for this, and they were so gorgeous I had to steal them.

80s 1A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP ALL NIGHT

Most recently, I was up reading Broken Things by Lauren Oliver. I think I rated it 3.5/5. It was a YA thriller, which I always find very readable and attention-grabbing. So it was hard to put down.

80s 2A WONDERFULLY QUOTABLE BOOK

Ahhhhh so many! I think Neil Gaiman’s books are super quotable, particularly Good Omens. There are just so many good quotes.

80s 3A CHARACTER WHO LOVES BREAKING THE RULES

Fred and George Weasley, but ALSO Ginny Weasley. They’re just a fun-loving family.

80s 4A BOOK COUPLE THAT TOOK AN ETERNITY TO GET TOGETHER

I feel like all of them? That’s one of the good parts about books is the angst and lead up?

80s 5A BOOK INVOLVING TIME TRAVEL

My Dirty Little Book of Stolen Time by Liz Jensen. It’s about a time travelling prostitute and it’s great.

80s 6A CHARACTER WITH A UNIQUE STYLE

Efie Trinket from the Hunger Games, for sure. I feel like even if that wasn’t the style of the Capitol, she would dress Like That™.

80s 8FAVOURITE BOOK INVOLVING THE TRAINING/MENTORING TROPE

love the training sequence in Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It’s so good and so interesting, and I loved it.

80s 9A BOOK WITH A TRIP THAT DOESN’T GO TO PLAN

The road trip part in Paper Towns by John Green definitely doesn’t go as planned, which just adds to the drama.

IndianaA BOOK WITH THE CENTRAL CHARACTER’S NAME IN THE TITLE

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See. Joy is one of the central characters and the story is about finding her, the physical Joy, but also the feeling joy, so the title is a bit of a play on words.

80s 11A FEMALE CHARACTER WHO COMES OUT OF HER SHELL

Alex from The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis. She learns how to be a “normal” girl and have friends and a relationship, and I really enjoyed it.

80s 10A DEATH THAT TOOK YOU BY SURPRISE

Top Gun is one of my all-time favourite movies, and I never recognize this scene and it gets me off-guard every time.

But anyway I think the deaths in We Were Liars by E. Lockart. I don’t want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but the ending did take me by surprise.

80s 12AN ENDING THAT LEFT YOU BOTH HAPPY & SAD

All my favourite endings are this tbh. I think The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The ending was great and everything, but bittersweet. I also just loved everything about this book.

Thanks for reading xx

  1. Thanks for doing my tag Ally! Great answers and I’m glad you liked my graphics as well. 😊
    I love The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and yeah, that ending is super bittersweet 😭. Fred and George are for sure the ultimate troublemakers, but in the best possible way of course.
    Haha, Effie’s style is definitely what you’d call…interesting.
