I saw this book tag from Words About Words and, as a 90s kid, I absolutely had to do this one. Granted, I might not have listened to all the bands/artists mentioned, but I at least know of them or have heard them at some point in my life.
And before we start, I should give credit to A Books Neverland for the creation of the tag.
What’s My Age Again – Blink 182
At what age did you discover your love of reading?
I can’t pinpoint an age specifically. I do remember being in kindergarten and wanting to read my books, but my teacher wouldn’t let me because my classmates weren’t at the same reading level. Honestly, my parents should’ve had me skip to first grade, but then I wouldn’t know my best friend. Anyway, I’ve pretty much always loved reading, so I can’t tell you when I really fell for books.
All Star – Smash Mouth
What is your favorite genre?
I’d have to say contemporary with good character development. I mean, I love a good whodunnit, but there’s something I love about modern stories that focus on relationships, whether they’re romantic or platonic.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Deep Blue Something
What’s your go-to reading snack/drink?
I either have water or tea when I read. I don’t really snack when I do because I don’t like making a mess of my books (or library books).
Give It Away – Red Hot Chili Peppers
What book do you ALWAYS recommend to people?
I feel like the two I recommend the most are Hacking Harvard and Standing By, but I also have others that I’ll recommend based on genre that people are looking for.
…Baby One More Time – Britney Spears
A book or series you have read more than once?
Standalones: Lola and the Boy Next Door, Time Bomb, Hacking Harvard, Standing By, The Future of Us
Series: Harry Potter, Charlotte Holmes, Gallagher Girls, Private
Tearin’ Up My Heart – N’Sync
A book that broke your heart to finish?
I’d have to say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one that broke my heart. That was the end of an era for me, especially since the last book came out close to when I finished high school… it was more like a double-era ending.
Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
A book that you read as a teen that you still love today?
The Gallagher Girls series (so more than one book) because it’s just a fun series to read, and I just find it very original for books at that time… and still even today. There’s not many girl spy-school books in YA.
Hurt – Nine Inch Nails
What book do you love that deals with heavier subjects?
A Baxter Family Christmas by Karen Kingsbury was one that I loved, as it dealt with the loss of a family member (who was a registered organ donor) and meeting a person who got the donated organ. In the case of this book it was the heart, and the book itself brought me to tears (as Kingsbury’s book usually do).
As always, I tag anyone who might be interested in doing this one as well, and if you do, I’d love to see your answers! Or if you just feel like answering in the comments, that’s cool too.
