For this week’s Book tag Thursday, I found this tag over at Amy’s blog, The Fangirl’s Opinion. I just had to try it out!
- Tag Ally @ Ally Writes Things so I can see your recommendations!
- Give at least one recommendation for each of the prompts below
- If you don’t have a recommendation, talk about a book you want to read
- Tag your friends
A Book About Friendship
I think this book has been on every list I’ve made, but honestly it deserves my praise. It’s arguably more about family that friendship, but I think it counts for both.
A Translated Book
The Chestnut Man by Soren Sveistrup has been on my list for a while now. It’s won so many awards, but it’s a heavy book. I simply have not had time to finish it.
A Diverse Romance
I don’t read a lot of romance novels, and I’m honestly not sure this one counts. However, it was a great book, and I strongly recommend it.
A Fast-Paced Book
Girl on the Run is the very definition of fast-paced. More importantly, it’s fun! I’m a huge fan of this one.
A non-fiction book (not a memoir)
An Underrated Memoir
All Over But the Shoutin‘ is not underrated, but it is one of the few memoirs I’ve read.
A Book With Fewer Than 10,000 Ratings on Goodreads
I LOVED this YA Fantasy. How on earth does it only have 699 ratings? Ya’ll better read this book.
A Book With a LGBTQ+ Protagonist
I recently sat through a YouTube review of this book in which the reviewer stated that the book was just about “straight white people.” While I agree that there is a disappointing lack of people of color, I feel like I should remind the world that Addie is notably bisexual and Henry is pansexual. I feel like they are both well-defined characters and great representations.
A Book By a Trans/Non-Binary Author
The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror by Daniel Mallory Ortberg is one of the few short story collections I’ve read, and it is fantastic!
A Book with More Than 500 Pages
A short story collection
We All Die in the End: Scenes from a Small Town by Elizabeth Merry is amazing!
