Hi, and thanks to Rukky@Eternity Books for suggesting this book tag to me. I’ve never really done any posts other than book reviews, and I started blogging a month ago, so, I’ll see how this goes!
#1 Recently Watched – The Last Book You Finished
I am Princess X. I finished it a couple days ago and haven’t been able to decide what to read next. I did finish the audiobook the 39 Clues book 7 the Viper’s Nest last night, so I guess both
#2 Top Picks – A Book That Has Been Recommended to You Based on What You Previously Have Read
The book The Sun is also a Star was recommended to me because I read Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon.
#3 Recently Added – The Last Book You Purchased
I don’t usually buy books, but I finally used the gift certificate that I got for my birthday, 11 months ago, and I got the books Hattie Big Sky and its sequel Hattie Ever After, which are two of my favorite books, and Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, which was so good, and I definitely recommend it.
#4 Popular on Netflix – Books That Everyone Knows (Two You’ve Read & Two You Have No Interest In)
I have no interest in reading the Harry Potter books; I read the first one and I did not like. I think that they’re okay books, but that they’re really overrated.
I have read the The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and it was really powerful; there’s a reason everybody knows it!
#5 Comedies – A Funny Book
The Wednesday Wars, by Gary D. Schmidt, is a very funny book, and I’ve read it a lot of times. It has lots of hilarious parts, but also coveres a lot of more serious topics at the same time.
#6 Dramas – A Character Who Is a Drama King/Queen
I think that Jane from The Penderwicks is definitely a drama queen, the opposite of her sister Rosalind, who’s always portrayed as the ‘sensible’ sister.
#7 Animated – A Book With Cartoons on the Cover
I can’t really think of a book with cartoons on the cover, because I don’t really read graphic novels that much.
#8 Watch it Again – A Book or Series You Want to Reread
I want to reread the book Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick, and its sequel, Yours Truly.
#9 Documentaries – A Nonfiction Book You’d Recommend to Everyone
I don’t read a huge amount of nonfiction, but Notorious RBG; the life and times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a really good biography, and about an amazing person!
#10 Action Adventure – An Action-Packed Book or Series
I don’t read a lot of action-packed books or series, but the 39 clues series, although I think it was aimed at slightly younger kids, is filled with action.
#11 New Releases – A Book That Just Came Out or Will Be Coming Out Soon That You Can’t Wait to Read
The Trials of Apollo book 4, The Tyrant’s Tomb, is coming out on September 24, and I’m really excited because I’m a huge fan of all of Rick Riordan’s books. (now that I think of it, all of his books are filled with action, so I should have probably put it up there)
Well, there it is. I think I’m supposed to tag other bloggers, but I don’t really know any other blogs than the ones that have already done it, so that’s all for today!
I very highly recommend this book. It is one of my favorites, and is really well written.
Wednesday Wars is a novel that covers a lot of different topics. It was written as a young adult novel, but I think that adults will enjoy it and appreciate it just as much. There are many funny parts, but even though it is an overall hilarious book, it also takes place during 1967 and 1968, and the Vietnam War is a big part of the story. Holling Hoodhood, who is the main character of this book is stuck with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, when the Catholic half of the class goes to catechism, and the Jewish half goes to Hebrew school on Wednesday afternoons. Holling is the only Presbyterian in his class, so he stays with Mrs. Baker, an arrangement that neither of them are very happy about.
Overall, Wednesday Wars is an amazing book, and if you like reading historical fiction, or reading at all, you should check it out.
