ThursTAG: Back to the 90s!

Good morning!

It is I, ThursTAG back again!

We’re revisiting some of the trends of the 90s in today’s installment (I’ll be honest – these things are clearly American, but I’m embracing them anyway haha)

***

POKEMON: THE AUTHOR YOU NEED EVERY BOOK FROM.

Lol, I think we all know the answer to this question. Can we all say it, after 3? 1, 2, 3.

Melinda Salisbury.

But also:

  • Sara Barnard
  • Maz Evans
  • LD Lapinski
  • Katherine Webber
  • Jason Reynolds
  • Laura Steven
  • Anna James

and many many more…

AIM: BOOK THAT CONNECTED YOU WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Haha. I didn’t really use AIM, but my gosh, MSN Messenger and I were best friends back in the day.

The book that connected me with my best friend? It’s funny because it’s actually because of Patrick Ness’ Release that gorgeous Charlotte and I first became friends!

FURBY: BOOK THAT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA BUT WAS ACTUALLY A MONSTER.

HOLD BACK THE TIDE.

How dare it, quite frankly. Read that book and tell me it doesn’t rip out your soul and SHOOKETH you.

N’SYNC: A BOOK YOU HATED TO SAY BYE, BYE, BYE TO.

I have to say I hate saying bye to most books. I really get involved in the worlds that I’m reading… however, I’m SO SO SAD to say goodbye to the Frostheart world by Jamie Littler. I finished the third book in the series recently and I’m so sad that I’m done now.

SLIMED! A BOOK EVERYONE LOVED BUT YOU HATED.

Hmmm… I don’t think I have an answer for this. I’m a bit funny about hyped books ha.

OREGON TRAIL: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU WISH YOU DIED OF DYSENTERY.

HAHAHAHHA. OMG. THAT’S BRUTAL.

MIXTAPE/CD: 3 BOOKS YOU RECOMMEND TO ANYONE, ANYWHERE, NO MATTER WHAT.

  1. The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Milwood Hargrave
  2. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
  3. State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury (or just anything by Queen Mel tbh)

DIAL-UP INTERNET: A BOOK THAT TOOK FOR FREAKING EVER TO READ.

Hmmm… I feel like it took me ages to get through Circe by Madeline Miller ONLY BECAUSE I don’t read a lot of “adult” fiction.

KENAN THOMPSON: THAT BOOK YOU SEE REFERENCED EVERYWHERE AND IS IN EVERYTHING, BUT THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME.

They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera is all over the world at the minute and I’m OK with that because that story BROKE ME IN SO MANY BRILLIANT WAYS.

THUMBS UP, SEVEN UP: BOOK WHERE YOU PEEKED JUST REAL QUICK AT THE ENDING BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE GUESSING GAMES.

*whispers* I do this semi-often. I just peek at the end to see if my favourite character is still mentioned at the end of the book because I grow VERY attached to characters. I think the most recent one was Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer because I was attached.

DUNKAROOS: YOUR IDEAL BOOKISH SNACK

Bring back my days of sitting in Starbucks, drinking a coffee, eating cake and reading a book.

SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK: A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP ALL NIGHT.

Hmmm… I don’t read many scary books because I’m a bit of a wimp haha.

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY: A BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.

Loads of books teach me things! I think the most important thing that books teach us is empathy!

***

And there we go! If you’d like to have a go at this, please do!
