The Beatles Book Tag!

Hi, a tag today! AND I was actually tagged by my buddy The Orangutan Librarian, who made it! So thanks friend! :”D It’s been a million years since I’ve been tagged in something. (HINT, PALS.)

Rules:

  1. Tag back to the original creator Orang-utan Librarian
  2. Thank whoever tagged you
  3. Tag people and keep it going!

Honestly literally any animal character. I never seem to be the favorite with my pets. I want it to happen. Please! I JUST WANT MY CAT TO LOVE ME, OK.

The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke – This is a childhood favorite of mine that I don’t think I’ve ever actually mentioned, or if I have, it hasn’t been for a long, long time. This is a magical realism-y fantasy set in the streets of Venice, following a boy and his brother and a mysterious leader of a gang of children who calls himself the Thief Lord. This is a middle grade novel, and it really makes me think of being twelve years old.

Black Butler, Vol. 15 (Black Butler, #15)

Black Butler by Yana Toboso – This manga series is a new favorite of mine: I picked it up right after the quarantine started and buzzed through all twenty eight volumes. Twenty nine is out now, and I own it, but honestly I really wanna…. reread the entire series again before I pick it up. That’s how much I love it, man. This series follows a young boy, who after the massacre of his family, sells his soul to a demon to get revenge. But man, it is so so so much more than that.

All My Friends Are Dead

All my friends are dead. by Avery Monsen and Jory John – Really gave me a positive outlook on life, y’know.

Just kidding, I can’t come up with a good one for this. :p

In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom

In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park – Honestly I think about this book so much. I think I read it five years ago or something now. I really need to get myself a physical copy.

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess – Now, I totally get that you’re not supposed to like this book but man, I really hate this book.

A Natural History of Dragons (The Memoirs of Lady Trent, #1)

This one was super hard, and honestly I don’t have perfect answer for it. A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan – the story is told through the main character’s narration. Like you read a travel journal of hers, more or less. Other than this and Fangirl, which Orangutan Librarian used, I haven’t read a book about an author. My goodness.

The Library at Mount Char

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins – It’s weird, but like in a best (and worst) way.

Fruits Basket, Vol. 13

Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya – This story is about a huge family, but each person in it is lonely in their own way. When I was a teenager, I went into this for a fluff romance. What I got was so much more than that.

14

14 by Peter Clines – This is the book I took with me on my honeymoon to read during my down time. When I think of it, I think of Hawaii.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Vol. 1 (Light Novel)

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime by Fuse – This one definitely does, as the story overall is wholesome and cute, but the main character is a grade A creep, and it’s written to be funny instead of what it is: creepy.

The Traitor Baru Cormorant (The Masquerade, #1)

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson – It was exactly what I wanted exactly when I wanted it.

Forest Mage (Soldier Son, #2)

Forest Mage by Robin Hobb – I was all over the place with this book. I was mad at it and loved it and hated it and thought it was great.

If We Were Villains

If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio – I chose this one because the plot is literally all about shaking things up.

Graineliers, Vol. 1

Graineliers by Rihito Takari – This one was such a neat read.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf (The Dark Star Trilogy #1)

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James – I was so pumped for this one, man. But it was definitely not a book for me.

Dragonball Z: An Unauthorized Guide

Dragonball Z by Lois and Danny Gresh – When I first got into DBZ at nine years old, my parents bought me this book, which is a publication by a mom and her son about the series, made because they were huge fans of it. I remember reading this thing over and over to the point where the spine offered no resistance when you’d open it up. I probably still have it around here somewhere.

Nod

Nod by Adrian Barnes – This has an average rating of 3.38 on Goodreads, which is pretty not great. I thought it was really good though! Only caveat here is that it’s no secret that I like it. I like it!

Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 27 (Fullmetal Alchemist, #27)

Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa – This series will always hold a special place in my heart. I grew up with it, and thinking about it makes me feel like a teenager again. ALSO it’s just… amazing. The twists, the characters, the setting, it’s grade A stuff, man.

The Gene: An Intimate History

The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee – Obviously I had to pick a nonfiction for this question.

Magus of the Library, Vol. 1

Magus of the Library by Mitsu Izumi – This manga is just so wonderful and fluffy and it’s about books! What more could you want, really

Ella Enchanted (Ella Enchanted #1)

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine – I’ve literally lost count of how many times I read this as a teen. I should really read it again.

~~

And that’s it! I tag Zezeewithbooks, Bookbinderway, and AllThingsMommaBlog! Do it, peer pressure!

  1. Thanks for tagging me!! 😀
    Black Leopard, Red Wolf is a tough one. I probably would have DNF’d it if I wasn’t participating in a group read for it. I was surprised that I ended up liking it by the end.
    Lol! All Hobb’s books are emotional rollercoasters.
