Last Week I talked about the books I hope to read in 2016 that I already own through the #RockMyTBR reading challenge! This week I am completing the book tag to go along with this! It was a lot of fun, a bit nostalgic, and helped me focus on the books I really want to make sure I get to next year.
“Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana) A contemporary I want to read
I received What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler earlier this month, and am excited to get to it early next year!
“Shut Up and Dance” (Walk to the Moon) Most anticipated book I have
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin has intrigued me since I first read about its publication. An alternate version of history where a girl sets out to kill the victorious Hitler…? This is one I definitely have high on my TBR list!
“Centuries” (Remix) (Fall Out Boy) A Twist on a Classic or Fairytale
Strands of Bronze and Gold is a twist on the BlueBeard myths, which is a retelling I have never come across before. It’s one I purchased off Book Outlet after the synopsis caught my attention.
“Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot” (The Flaming Lips) a science fiction book or a book set in the future
Midwinterblood is one that time hops and involves some other than human characters. I got a really strong Cloud Atlas vibe when I bought it a few years ago. It will be nice to finally have this off my TBR!
“She Looks So Perfect” (5 Seconds of Summer) a book with a girl on the cover
I fully anticipate needing some tissues for this one! The Summer of Letting Go follows a girl work through her grief and guilt after the death of her younger sibling.
“Africa” (Toto) a book set in a foreign country
Jellicoe Road is about a group of boarding school students set in Australia. Although I have heard people say that they really like this book, I don’t know too much about it other than that 🙂
“Another One Bites the Dust” (Queen) a book or books that will complete a series
After reading Never Fade I went a bit lukewarm with this series. Hopefully my excitement picks back up as I read the last book in the Darkest Minds Trilogy.
“Someone New” (Hozier) a book by an author you haven’t read yet
I picked up The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides at a used book store in the early part of last year. I feel like this is something of a YA classic that I should have gotten to by now.
“Hello” (Adele) a book DNF or weren’t in the m old for at the time
I tried reading The Kingdom of Little Wounds right after finishing Queen of the Tearling which I think was my big mistake! Hopefully I’ll be able to get more invested in this, now that I haven’t read anything like it in a few months.
“Love at First Sight” (Kylie Minogue) a book you bought because of the cover
This is a book I stumbled across while I was browsing Book Outlet. I barely read the synopsis before adding it to my cart and checking out. 🙂
So there it is! I challenge anyone else who is doing the #RockMyTBR reading challenge to do this book tag!
