The Book Sacrifice Tag
I've been nominated by TT @ Intro To Blurb to complete The Book Sacrifice Tag! Thanks so much, TT! Everyone should stop by his blog, if they haven't already!
1. An Over-Hyped Book
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I just didn't get the appeal of this one.
2. A Sequel
Situation: A torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard - While I liked the first book well enough, this one was disappointing in comparison.
3. A Classic
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand - I have no interest in reading this one after how angry The Fountainhead made me.
4. A Least Favorite Book
Situation: Apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1) by Brenda Davis - This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and it just fell flat for me - easily one of my least favorite reads of the year. If only it didn't so closely parallel City of Bones and focused more on the library jumping and less on the romance.
