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.
A 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.
A 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.
A CHARACTER WHO LOVES BREAKING THE RULES
Fred and George Weasley, but ALSO Ginny Weasley. They’re just a fun-loving family.
A 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?
A 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.
A 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™.
FAVOURITE BOOK INVOLVING THE TRAINING/MENTORING TROPE
I love the training sequence in Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It’s so good and so interesting, and I loved it.
A 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.
A 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.
A 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.
A 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.
AN 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.
I’m feeling kind of lazy rn (and am in class lmao) so I’m not tagging anyone. But please let me know if you do the tag!!! I’d love to see all your answers!
Thanks for reading xx
