It is I, your ThursTAG friend back again!
We are soon going back into the world of school (I’m back on Monday) and I thought it was about time to re-do this tag – I did this tag in 2019 (and probably 2020 too… I am a predictable bean) and thought I’d give it another go and TRY to have different answers haha.
ENGLISH – NAME YOUR FAVOURITE AUTHOR’S (OR BOOK’S) WRITING STYLE
Oh god. I am going to give you the same answer that I’ve given every year, aren’t I?
Okay. We all know what my FIRST answer to this would be (cough Mel cough), but I’m going to go be a bit unpredictable and say Piers Torday. His books are really beautifully written, with gorgeous messages about all kinds and they always PROPER make me cry.
MATHS – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU FRUSTRATED
(it offends me that Maths is the frustrated subject; Maths is great)
Hmmm… again, this is an answer that I ALWAYS give… but the ending A Curse So Dark and Lonely made me want to scream. I just didn’t believe it. (Obvs I came round to it in the end because I read the rest of the series)
SCIENCE – A BOOK THAT MADE YOU THINK
I’m quite a deep reader/thinker. I tend to end most books and go ‘well THIS needs sorted or THIS needs to be done or I need to learn more about THIS’, but a picture book that I read recently that I’ve come back to a few times and done lots of reading around is Stonewall: A Building. An Uprising. A Revolution by Rob Sanders. I am a proud member of the LGBT community, and reading this properly moved me and reminded me that it’s important to KNOW about the history of LGBT rights and movements.
SOCIAL STUDIES/HISTORY – YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK FROM A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD
Oh god. I really am just learning that I am a predictable human because World War 2 is my favourite time period and we all know it by now. My most recent loved read from WW2 is Arctic Star by Tom Palmer – loved reading a different side to the war!
ART – YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK WITH PICTURES
Honestly, I love picture books, so much. Throw a picture book at me and I’ll just devour it. For me, you can’t beat Oliver Jeffers or David Litchfield‘s illustrations.
DRAMA – A BOOK YOU WOULD LOVE TO TURN INTO A MOVIE
I would LOVE to see the new Brigid Kemmerer book, Defy the Night, as a movie/TV series because I just absolutely adored it. Please someone make it happen thanks.
MUSIC – NAME A CHARACTER YOU THINK (OR KNOW) WOULD HAVE THE SAME MUSICAL TASTE AS YOU
I literally have no scooby. Sorry. Ask me again another time OR TELL ME WHO YOU THINK IS THE SAME AS ME.
LUNCH – A FOOD YOU WOULD LOVE TO TRY
Any of the food in With The Fire On High (that’s one of those books I’ve read ages ago that pops into my head and I just remember how much I loved it).
BUS RIDE HOME – A BOOK OR AUTHOR THAT IS RELAXING
Relax? I don’t read to relax haha. Reading makes me feel ALL the emotions, but relax is not one of them. I do find reading graphic novels to be quite relaxing though??
EXTRA CREDIT – A BOOK SOMEONE ELSE TOLD YOU TO READ AND YOU ENDED UP ENJOYING
Charlotte recently told me to read Agnes at the End of the World because it was about a cult and I LOVED it. I love a book about cults. (I bet that is another predictable thing you knew about me if you’re around here much!)
And there we go! If you’d like to have a go at this, please do!
