Location Book Tag

So, Caitlynn helped me out the other day by posting on Thursday. Since she was awesome and helped me out I took her Sunday. So, I tried a different kind of tag today.

This tag was just created by  Puppa Pages. I found it on Pace, Amore, Libri’s blog.This tag really intrigued me because it’s situational. This tag is a lot different from any other tag that I’ve done. So, it felt like a nice change of pace.

1. You’re sat in a coffee shop trying to read when a group of excited 6 year olds come in with their parents and begin screaming in the play area. Which book can you push past the noise and lose yourself in?

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: The world that Bardugo created with the Grisha universe is completely immersive. When I read any of her books I find myself lost in the story.

2. Your (rich) friends dare you to spend the night in a haunted house for an undisclosed but inevitably large sum of money. Which book do you bring to distract yourself with?

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Okay, I love being scared. However, I think if I was to stay the night in a haunted house I would want to distract myself as much as possible. So, a Rainbow Rowell book is in order.

3. Though the landscapes are beautiful, your delayed train journey is starting to drag. Which book do you take out?

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: This book I chose not just for the fast paced plot but for the beautiful settings in the book. I think it would compliment my scenic train ride.

4. It’s beach time! You have your family and friends around you and don’t want to miss out on the conversation too much but still want to read. Which book do you choose?

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson: Summer calls for contemporary reads. There’s nothing better than reading a fun contemporary while sitting on a beach.

5. You’re backstage ready for your big emotional scene but the tears just won’t come. Which book do you get out to make you cry?

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: This book destroyed me. I bawled my eyes out when I first read this book. Even thinking about it makes me sad all over again.

6. You’re camping in the woods with your friends and you’re the first to wake up. Which book do you read under the early morning light?

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon: This is a book that I just really want to reread. It’s cute and fast paced so I think it’d be perfect for a camping trip.

7. You’ve had an amazing day on your solo trip but now that you’re back at the hotel, you’re starting to feel a little homesick. What do you read to feel less lonely?

Paper Towns by John Green: I chose this book for multiple reasons. First of all, I really love this book. It is definitely one of my favorite John Green books. Secondly, it takes place about an hour away from where I live. I think it would be the perfect homesickness cure.

8. You’ve been invited for an interview for an place at a prestigious university. Which book do you lay flat on your knee to hide the cover while you wait?

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons: Honestly, I’m not sure I understand what this situation is supposed to evoke. But, I chose a book that is historical so it at least kind of feels educational.

9. The book exchange stall at the library finally has the book you’ve wanted for so long, and you have a book in your bag that you’ve been dying to get rid of. Which do you give away, and which do you take?

I would give away Soundless by Richelle Mead and take Blankets by Craig Thompson I wasn’t a big fan of Soundlesss. But, I’ve heard amazing things about Thompson’s graphic novel, Blankets.

10. You were just browsing the children’s section of the library and boom, you’re hit with a sudden blast from the past. Which book have you found that you haven’t seen for years but that you used to love as a child?

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle: I read this book in elementary school but I haven’t revisited it as an adult. I remember loving the book in school so I would like to see if my opinion has changed.

 

What’s a book that cures you of being homesick? Let me know in the comments I’d love to find out.

  1. Your answers are so great! The situational prompts are fantastic to think about. A book that cures homesickness for me will always be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite, but there’s something about Sorcerer’s Stone being the beginning of the story that’ll always be able to draw me in (:

  2. Echoing Harry Potter as a cure for homesickness, just because it reminds me of being a kid. Alternatively, any kind of historical book or book of short stories set in the city I live in (I haven’t read many novels set in the city I live in, but have found a few collections of short stories in the local sections of bookstores…sometimes I kind of like that better though, because I can read something quick to cure my homesickness instead of immersing myself in a whole novel).
