Closing the Chapter Book Tag

Good morning, friends! (Or whatever time of day it is that you’re reading this).

I was recently tagged in an original tag by Musing of Souls, and I’m super excited to answer this one.

Rules for the tag:

  1. Include the tag image in your post, please!
  2. Revert the audience to the original creator – Musing of Souls
  3. Link this post to your tag content, makes it easier for me to read!
  4. Tag as many people you like!
  5. Do not alter the original questions, though, you are allowed to add more questions to it!
  6. Just enjoy!

Q’s and A’s:

Chapter 1: Let me Cry :A book you loved so much that you just didn’t wish to finish it, link a song to it if possible!

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ve probably already guessed my answer. This is the book that started it all–that is, this is the book that inspired Becky and me to start this blog. If you want something that will make you laugh, cry and feel all of the feelings, this is the book for you.

Chapter 2: Little to biggy: A book which includes transition of age (it may have flashbacks from past, just age transformation of some sort.)

I know I’ve talked about this one a lot as well. It is one of the few “hyped books” I’ve read that I felt was worthy of the hype. If you haven’t read it yet, you really should.

Chapter 3: Just move on. A book which you just wanted to finish as you did not enjoy it.

I’m definitely in the minority here, but I did not enjoy Rachel Hawkins’s modernization of the classic Jane Eyre story. I was really excited about this book, perhaps too excited. Overall, it’s a fine thriller, but I hated what Hawkins did with Jane’s character. In the original book, Jane goes through so much turmoil in her life, but she never loses her strength of character. The modern Jane in The Wife Upstairs, however, is mean and judgmental. I couldn’t handle it. I’ll write a full review sometime soon, but I was just too upset by it right after I finished.

Chapter 4: Keep coming back. A book which you read again and again because you love a character so much.

As a general rule, I don’t re-read books for pleasure. There are just too many books I want to read! However, I have listened to this little gem several times while on the road. It’s only about 2 hours long and brilliantly narrated by Neil Gaiman. If you have kids, this is the perfect road trip book as it will teach them some Norse mythology and keep them entertained.

Chapter 5: Piling up: A book which you have not opened but want to(for a long time), can be read or unread.

So, ever since reading Home Before Dark, I’ve considered myself a Riley Sager fan, and this is the novel that really launched his career. I really want to read it, but I need to read some ARCs first.
