The Winter Olympic Tag

March 11, 2014

Sorry for my lack of posting, school has been crazy! But Jack tagged me in The Winter Olympic Tag which was originally created by Sophie at A Day Dreamer's World. I'll be tagging anyone who wishes to participate in this and hasn't already done so. Enjoy :)

1. Opening Ceremony – The best stand-alone.
Oh my, so many books could fit under this category! The Fault In Our Stars is my favourite book ever but ACID by Emma Pass was an outstanding stand alone.

2. Just about to compete – The book you are most anticipating.
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare.

3. Sochi 2014 – The book that left you feeling cold and heart-broken.
Butterfly Summer by Anne Marie Conway.

3. Team GB/USA/IRELAND – The book with a cultural-aspect.
Anna and The French Kiss was not only the perfect read but left me even more eager to travel to France!

4. Figure-Skating – The book with beautiful-writing.
The Shatter Me series by Taherah Mafi, I would love to write like that.

5. Speed Skating – The book that kept you gripped/made your heart race.
So many! Probably The Morganville Vampires Series by Rachel Caine because my heart races thinking about it. I miss it so much!

6. Pairs (Short Programme) – The book with your favourite friendship/romance.
When you ship almost every couple, this is a very hard question. Probably Anna and St Clair, Hazel and Gus or Shane and Claire.

7. Alpine Skiing – The book with the most twists and turns in it’s plot.
ACID by Emma Pass, like boom plot twists everywhere!

8. Cross-country – The book that took you on a journey.

The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine was a series that really allowed me to grow connected with the characters, it was like watching family grow. I'll always keep this 15 book journey close to heart.

9. Snowboard – The book with the most ups and downs.
I actually don't read many bad books because if I don't like it I usually give up. While it wasn't the worst, I found myself in a weird tangle of irritation and sympathy when reading Now is Good by Jenny Downham. The lead really frustrated me and I couldn't see the logic behind her actions and then in  some cases I would feel sad for her and more interested in the story.

10. Biathalon – The book that hit all the targets.

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green AND Anna and The French Kiss.

11. Luge (Team Relay) – The best book-series.

I am obsessed with The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments, so obsessed. There are so many amazing series but how could I not choose The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine. 

12. Last Place – The book that left you disappointed.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth was not horrible but a disappointing series conclusion. 

13. Gold Medal Winner – The best book you have read.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green :D

14. Podium – Top three characters.
I am gonna avoid male characters completely because then it's going to turn into a book boyfriends feast. That aside the top 3 female characters are.. Celaena Sardothien, Harriet Manners and Tessa Gray.

15. Closing Ceremony – The best finale.
Ignite Me by Taherah Mafi and Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.

  1. Agreed! I see we had some choices that are the same. Goes to show how much we agree on!

  2. I haven't read The Morganville Vampires series...but I really want to! I kind of want to just binge read them...but I don't have the time to do that right now...but it is one of my booky goals this year to at least start the series!
    I don't know that many people that have read the Geek Girl series...I love Harriet! Can't wait for the next book.

  3. Definitely agree with you on the best stand-alone. Which reminds me, I simply have to do this tag even though nobody really tagged me, LOL!

  4. Thank you SO much for doing this TAG, Sunny! I absolutely love all of your choices!

    1) I've just read Acid and absolutely adored it! It was a fab first-novel, and I can't wait to read Pass' next book! As you know, I'm also a huge fan of TFiOS! I can't wait until I can see the movie - which I will be seeing as a celebration for the end of my exams(it's out two days before the final Maths one, so will have to wait).

    2) I SO want to read Anna and the French Kiss. I have it on my shelf waiting for me, but school is hectic and I hardly have any time to read lately!

    3) I can't believe I still haven't read the Shatter Me Trilogy. I know they have beautiful writing, and the whole series sounds like something I would give five stars in moments!

    7) That certain twist in Acid...the really big one...was amazing! I loved how Pass completely tricked us all of the way through!

    12) I think I'm the only person who understood and really liked the ending to Allegiant. I didn't find it disappointing, although I cried for about an hour afterwards!

    13) Who doesn't love Celaena and Harriet! I'm currently reading The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas. Have you read it yet? It's the five short stories before Throne of Glass begins!
