I have started watching Stranger Things and my goodness is it addicting! Therefore, after finding this book tag at Bookishness and Tea I knew I had to do it.
The Vanishing of Will Byers
the first book in a series that left you intrigued and slightly confused
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs This isn’t a series I could see myself continuing probably because I was more confused than intrigued by it.
The Upside Down
a book with a setting you would never want to live in
The depths of Mordor — the humidity would not be good for my hair at all!
a book you own that is somewhat damaged, but loved to pieces
This goes to The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. I read it so many times that it was literary falling apart and had to be thrown away the last time I read it.
Mike, Lucas, and Dustin
a trilogy you always go to whenever you need a pick-me-up
Harry Potter — yes this is a series, not a trilogy but it always makes me happy to enter the doors of Hogwarts.
a book with a terrifying beast you wouldn’t want to face in a dark alley
Balrogs, anything that can take down a wizard is a bit intimidating.
a book with a villain who is both manipulative and dedicated
Rhoda Penmark, an eight year old who is pure evil. Manipulating adults with sweet charms and girlish pigtails. However, this cuteness is laced with ulterior motives and with dogged dedication will go to great lengths (such as murder) to achieve them.
a book you didn’t expect to love
This would have to go to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I was very resistant to read it at first because of all the hype but ended up loving it.
a book with a setting that’s just a little bit strange
The dystopian world in The Giver by Lois Lowry. The community of sameness and conformity is eerily stranger and definitely isn’t for me.
