It’s Monday! (unenthusiastic woo!) So I thought i’d do this fun tag which I saw over on Alex a.k.a coffeeloving bookaholic’s blog (She has a wonderful bookish blog, check it out!). The tag asks you to choose books which reflect the artists vibe or tone. Honestly, I never thought i’d be thinking about Taylor Swift or One Direction on my blog which is why I thought this tag was such a stand out to me!
- Link back to me as Bookchanted, as the creator of the tag. I want to read your answers y’all!!
- You can use the graphics if you want
- Tag at least four other people!
- HAVE FUN!!!!
1. Ed Sheeran: An adorable book that left you feeling warm and fuzzy.
The BFG – When I think about it, I honestly don’t remember the last time I read a book that left me feeling warm or fuzzy, so i’m choosing a book I remember loving as a child. I legit thought the BFG was responsible for all the dreams I dreamt right up until I was around 9 years old.
2. Taylor Swift: A book with way too much drama to keep track of.
Ulysses – This book is over 900 pages! Is that enough of a reason? I actually read around half of this book but in non-sequential order for a couple of my university seminars; with that being said, I should be able to name at least more than two plot points.. but I can’t.
3. Zayn Malik: The broody, mysterious character you totally fell for.
Mr. Rochester – I’ll admit that part of my attraction towards this character is because I watched an adaptation alongside reading this book. Mr Rochester, might be (I think) my very first introduction to broody Victorian men.
4. Jelena: A ship you really wanted but it never sailed.
Jacob and Bella (Twilight saga) – Team Jacob all the way! I fully stand by my 15-19 year old self – they will always be my OTP (One True Pairing). Other than the other guys ‘allure’ I still don’t understand the attraction or decision Bella made.
5. Fall Out Boy: A series that just keep getting better and better.
Harry Potter series – This is probably the only series that i’ve re-read more than twice. I love that there’s still new information being released about the world and the characters. I’ve also grown to appreciate the books more as an adult.
6. Halsey/Demi Lovato: A badass female character you really admire.
Lydia Carrington – Despite being in the thick of a murder scene, she remains level-headed throughout and takes charge of a group of mostly men. She’ s also quick-thinking, caring, extremely observant and doesn’t stand for any nonsense.
7. One Direction: The romantic, cheesy book you couldn’t help but love.
The Fault In Our Stars – One of the few teen romances that I genuinely loved reading from start to finish. The story is both lovely and heart-breaking. The protagonists are sweet people in terribly unlucky positions but the story still manages to make you smile.
8. Adele: A book that delivers a really powerful message.
1984 – This is about as powerful of a book with a message as you can get. Orwell is giving us a warning against the progression of totalitarianism and is informing us on the importance of our basic personal right – the freedom to think and therefore be. Did you know that The UK has 1% of the world’s population but 20% of its CCTV cameras?
9. Miley Cyrus: A book/series that exceeded your expectations.
Northanger Abbey – I wasn’t the biggest Austen fan, actually, i’m still undecided as to whether I truly am but I was surprised when I ended up really enjoying this book. I think it had to do with it being influenced by the Gothic genre which is one of my favourites.
10. Katy Perry: A book/series that didn’t live up to the hype.
The Girl on the Train – It was marketed as the next ‘Gone Girl’– it wasn’t. Though it had the potential to be a very good story it wasn’t as engaging or interesting as I was led to believe it would be… it’s still a good read though.
Would you pair any of these books with these artists?
What book(s) would you pair them with? Let me know, i’m curious! 😀
I tag any of you reading this who want to give it a go… Yes, you!
