Happy Friday! I’m doing yet another tag that I’ve just come across. Today’s was found on Morgane’s blog, BookMeSomeTime. You can find Morgane’s blog here.
- Eavesdropping with miscommunication –
Name a book you heard great things about and expected to love but ended up hating.
Hate is a strong word, but I definitely didn’t enjoy Strange Hotel by Eimear McBride as much as I expected to.
- Love Triangles –
Name a series where you can’t pick your favourite book.
I don’t read many series, so this is tricky! I actually can’t think of any series I’ve read where one of them doesn’t stand out as a favourite. The closest series I can think of for this is the Outline trilogy by Rachel Cusk, but the first book still comes out on top just about.
- Not Like Other Girls/Didn’t Know I’m Beautiful –
Name a book that has a pretty cover but was boring as all hell.
I can’t think of any books that were boring to be honest! One of my prettiest covers is Hamnet, though. But boring isn’t a word I would use to describe it.
- All-Consuming Love –
Name a book that gave you a book hangover
This isn’t something I really experience to be honest. If I had to pick, I think I’d go with Republic by Plato. It’s pretty dense, so it was hard work to get through, and I didn’t really want to read much alongside it.
- Douchebag Boyfriend –
Name a book that took you a while to get into, but you ended up loving.
I can’t think of any! I’m hoping that Ducks, Newburyport might fulfil this prompt, but only time can tell!
- Tell us your favourite or least favourite trope!
I don’t have a favourite, so I’m going for least favourite, which is the Prince Charming type trope. I don’t really know what it’s called, but you know, the one where a woman meets Mr. Perfect, but there has to be loads of angst before they can be together properly. Like maybe she’s just been through a breakup, or she’s still with someone else, or there’s some big miscommunication (another trope that annoys me).
As I usually do, I’m tagging anyone who’s enjoyed these questions!
