For today I’m going to be posting a tag that I have came up with, together with Keira (and it was mostly her effort), which is the Instrumental Book Tag. We have been planning a collab for months but I saved it for this project, which is awesome!
The tag is simple, there are different instruments and each is associated with a different type of book. The usual book tag 🙂 it was quite fun to prepare.
So here it is:
Keira’s answers are pink
My answers are green
Hope we’ll keep you reading off the screen 🙂
Piano- a classic you love
Watership Down by Richard Adams. Or The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge. I honestly have a really difficult time choosing between them. But if I had to, it would be Watership Down, just based on how many times I’ve read it. It is heartwarming, thrilling and an interesting perspective (I mean, the main character is a rabbit).
I consider Harry Potter a classic, no matter what you have to say (whoops). So obviously that. But if I had to chose a ‘classic’ classic, it’ll be Les Misérables by Victor Hugo.
Keyboard- a retelling of a famous story
The Princess Curse by Merrie Haskell. It is a retelling of a lot of different fairy tales: The Twelve Dancing Princesses and Persephone being the most obvious. This is a standalone but I wish it weren’t- I want to read more about these characters!!!!!
I DON’T KNOW!! What does this mean?! I don’t know any retellings!
OHH! Can I pick Miranda Sings’ retelling of the Story of Christmas? If anything’s the best, it’s that.
Guitar- a popular book you love
Well, this is an obvious one: Harry Potter. Enough said.
Since that’s the obvious answer, I’ll try to think of something else.
That was not easy.
Cello- a book that gave you chills
So many! Let’s go with Stolen by Lucy Christopher- chills in the good way. I was sobbing for ages afterwards.
THE PERFECTIONISTS SERIES BY SARA SHEPARD
It’s honestly THE best. And it freaked the freak out of me.
Voice- a book with a unique writing style
According to someone (winkwink), it’s A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. I haven’t read it yet but I’ve seen a couple of pages and it really is unique.
Triangle- a book that you don’t like to mention reading
Um…. well, maybe Twilight. But only because people are so judgmental! Sure, they are not the best books (the main series I don’t particularly like, but the new gender-flipped one I liked a lot more) but judging others based on a book is just stupid.
First of all, why Triangle?! Oh wait it’s my tag whoops.
I don’t think I’ve read many embarrassing books. Maybe in mychildhood? Yeah, that’s probably it. I used to read girl magazines like WITCH because there literally were no magazines for boys except comics. I also read kids books.
So that was our tag! Hope you enjoyed it 😀 this is just the first part (as with most of the collabs in this project), so expect part 2 on Keira’s blog sometime soon!
I tag all music and book lovers to do this tag. Have fun!
