Big thank you to Kerri @ KerriMCBooknerd for tagging me in this book tag! I’m a huge LOTR fan, even if I’ve never read the books, so had a lot of fun answering all the prompts! BTW you should go and check Kerri’s blog out because she write amazing reviews and posts some great bookish content. This tag originated at Unputdownable Books .
Gandalf – A book that taught you something
I don’t tend to read a lot of non-fiction books, but I’ve been reading this in dribs and drabs and it really shows how the world is made for women and not men. For example the recommended daily allowances are all based on men, as well as how car seat belts are only tested on men and not women. It’s incredibly interesting, if not a little infuriating & I’m enjoying working my way through.
Frodo – A book that left a mark on you
This book in general didn’t make a mark on me, but there is a quote in it that did hit me when I read it:
“I’m just a girl.”
“It is tragic how you have been taught to say that with sadness rather than triumph.”
Legolas – A book you finished in one sitting
There are way too many to count so I’ll just go with my most recent one. In the Jaded Grove is a fast paced portal fantasy, with great characters and an intricate fantasy world.
Gimli – A book that features an unlikely friendship
Could there be a weirder relationship than the one between a Monk and Robot??
Merry – A book that pleasantly surprised you
I’d read some really mixed reviews for this, and though it wasn’t amazingly fresh I still really enjoyed the story & can’t wait to get my hands on book two.
Pippin – A book that made you laugh
I love this series so much & the characters are bloody (pardon the pun) hilarious. I’ve actually just finished an arc of book two and it was, if possible, better than the first… and a lot funnier.
Boromir – A book/series that you think ended too soon
My review for this will be out later this week, but it’s safe to say the ending of this book/series was rushed.
Sam – A book with memorable side characters who stole the show
The kids in this book absolutely steal the show for me! They each have their own quirks and personalities and I completely fell in love with them all.
Aragorn – A good book with a bad/average cover
I really, really don’t like this cover. Besides the fact it’s incredibly annoying when they change series covers half way through, the previous covers were SO much better!
Gollum – A book that had great potential but disappointed you in the end
This book sounded like it would be a really interesting read and, while the world was kind of interesting, the book itself fell really flat to me and I ended up skimming through the last 30-40%.
I’m not going to be tagging anyone specifically, but if you want to take part please feel free!
