Stranger Things Book Tag

Posted September 1, 2016 by booksbeautyandcoffee in Bookish Tags / 4 Comments


I’m kind of freaking out a shit ton little about this tag, and I seriously wanted to do it so badly. I had honestly planned on tagging myself, but Dee from The Bookish Khaleesi tagged me and now I’m finally doing it!

First of all, is anyone else totally obsessed with this show? Because if you follow me on Tumblr or Twitter, it’s definitely no secret that I’m a total fangirl over this entire show. I watched the season three times within the span of a week… Yeah, it’s bad. I need season two, like, yesterday.

And second, this is an amazing tag created by A Running Commentary, and again, thank you Dee for tagging me!


The First Book In A Series That Left You Intrigued and Slightly Confused

I’m definitely going to have to go with Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman for this one. I remember how hard I was trying to catch up at the beginning of the book, and how I would definitely get lost throughout randomly. It was nothing to do with the writing, I’m pretty sure we were supposed to be confused about a lot of things, and it was amazing. I’m also pretty sure it may have had to do with the fact that I was up until 4 am the same day I started it finishing it. Just maybe.


A Book With A Setting You Would Never Want To Live In

I 10000% agree with everyone I’ve seen who has done this tag, and I’m going with The Hunger Games for this one. I would be so scared all the time that I would get forced into the games and lets be real, I so wouldn’t last. My friend and I were talking about it a while ago, and honestly, I would probably just hit myself over the head with a rock. I’m not trying to kill anyone, and I’m definitely not trying to have any of the others kill me, or have some kind of mutant attack me. It’s just not my scene.


A Book You Own That is Somewhat Damaged, But Loved To Pieces

This is either going to be a toss up between Harry Potter, literally any of the books, or City of Bones.. I’ve read the first books of both series so many times, I’m honestly surprised my original copies held up for as long as they did!


A Trilogy You Always Go To Whenever You Need A Pick-Me-Up

This is definitely a hard one for me because most of the trilogies I read have a thing for breaking my heart.. *cough* The Infernal Devices *cough* I think I’m going to go with the three Anna and the French Kiss books, even though they’re not technically a trilogy. They’re so adorable and cute, I can’t help but automatically get happier when I read them.


A Book With A Terrifying Beast You Wouldn’t Want To Face In A Dark Alley

Again, choosing Harry Potter for this one. But I’m not going with the stereotypical Voldemort response, no no, it’s the dementors that get me. I don’t know what it is about those things, but I remember being so freaked out when I read about them for the first time. Probably something to do with the whole soul sucking thing..


A Book With A Villain Who Is Both Manipulative And Dedicated

I think I’m beginning to truly show my obsession with the Harry Potter world in this tag, but I’m definitely picking Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for this one. Now, I haven’t put out my review this book yet, but it wasn’t exactly my favorite thing I’ve read this year by any means. However, I definitely loved the ‘villain’ of this story. I won’t go into detail since this story is still relatively new, but if you’ve read it, you know who I’m talking about.


A Book You Didn’t Expect To Love

This one is definitely the entire Falling Kingdoms series for me. When I first picked up the first book, I just thought I would be getting a pretty solid fantasy read to tide me over until Empire of Storms came out the next year (I was in a major book hangover from Queen of Shadows at the time) and I turned out to love that series just as much, if not more, than Throne of Glass! It’s so amazing, and it’s seriously underrated.


A Book With A Setting That’s Just A Little Bit Strange

I have to agree with Dee on this one, and choose The Raven Cycle. Since they’re all set in Henrietta, I’m just picking the entire series, but these books definitely have a strange setting. And by strange, I mean I wish it was 100% real and I could live there.

And that’s all! I was going to come up with this super long list of who I tag and all that jazz, but honestly, I don’t like tagging specific people. If I know someone would really like it, I’ll message them and tell them about it, but I want everyone to be able to do this tag. So seriously, if you’re reading this, you’ve been tagged.

Now go forth and write your post! And comment back with your links, I definitely want to read them all!

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

  • OMG! I would have answered the same to all these questions! ?? Illuminae was no doubt very confusing at beginning but the puzzle started to solve slowly! I wouldn’t want to be in The Hunger Games too! ?Dementors?

      Dude, I’d be so bad in The Hunger Games! I wouldn’t stand a chance, honest to god. It would be sucha mess, I’d be the comedy part of the Games for that year, for sure.

  • OH MY GOSH STRANGER THINGS WAS AMAZING! I’ve only seen it once, but I saw it once in two days and UGH so great.
    I definitely snorted at, “My friend and I were talking about it a while ago, and honestly, I would probably just hit myself over the head with a rock.” That is exactly what I say when the zombie apocalypse comes (which is where I would NEVER want to live in) because that shit’s depressing!
    Loving your choice on the dementors. I’d have to agree. I was going to say Thestrals until I read the comment again and Thestrals aren’t anything bad to face off with in an alley, they’ve just stuck with me the most.
    What a great tag! It looks like you had so much fun writing this post! 😀

      Honestly, whenever anyone brings up a world “we wouldn’t want to live in” I always say The Hunger Games without a doubt, and now that I’m thinking about it probably anything to do with zombies as well, because I’m not made to run fast or ya know, be able to live under hella stressful situations.
