Here at Thrice Read we love music. We love it almost as much as we love books. So, when I came across this tag on Amy’s blog I loved the concept. What’s better than combining both music and books? Also, this tag had some refreshing new questions I’ve never seen before.
1. Dubstep– A book that gets crazy when the plot drops
When I first read this question Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor immediately came to mind. It has an intricate plot that I really was not expecting from the outset.
2. Pop– A happy book that you can read over and over again.
I don’t know if there’s a limit for how many times I can read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. However, let’s all hope the limit does not exist. Because, it is a go to book for me and it’s the perfect contemporary read in my opinion.
3. Rock– A book with a kick-ass group of main characters.
I feel as though at this point you can predict my answer for this question. How could I not choose my favorite band of criminals? I have to choose Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. It just wouldn’t feel right to say any other gang.
4. Techno– A book with a futuristic vibe
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee is like Gossip Girl set in the 4000th century. It is such a fun and futuristic read that does not get the hype it deserves.
5. Classical- A book that’s set in a historical time period.
Okay, so you may not know this about me but I love Victorian era novels. It doesn’t matter if it was a classic from the Victorian era or a book merely set there. I can’t get enough. So, I’m going to cheat and offer one of each. The classic that I love would definitely have to be Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens, the drama in this book is boundless. For a book that is set during the Victorian era I would have to say the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. Let’s face it I can’t get enough Will Herondale in my life.
6. Country– a contemporary book that has a laid back setting.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is a quick yet adorable contemporary read. It has a much more laid back vibe than most YA novels do and I love that about it.
7. Rap/Hip Hop– A book that’s fast paced and action packed.
Uhh Red Rising by Pierce Brown, because have you read that books? It kicks off with a bang at the beginning and it doesn’t take a breath until well into the second books. It is jam-packed with storyline and action.
What’s your favorite historical fiction read? (Extra points if it’s set in the Victorian era.)
