I’m back with another tag!! After sniffing around the internet for a fun book tag to do I found this one over at The Book Nut (who has a massive list of book tags). It was originally created on YouTube but unfortunately, the original video no longer exists! Gah!
But I’m quite excited to go through these questions and HAVE SOME FUN. In addition to this, to celebrate Pride Month I’ve put a spin on this where my answers can only include LGBT+ books. I confess I really want to expand my LGBT+ reading because I’ve discovered a good number of new recommendations lately but these are some tried and tested favourites! So let’s GO!
Part of Your World
What book world would you change yourself
for so you could be a part of that world?
This is an easy one right?! I would 100% change myself to be a witch so that I could go Watford School of Magicks with Simon and Baz. These two are life and I want to be friends with them. Also, the school sounds like a hot mess and I think that would be fun too.
Let It Go
What book did you not want to finish because you
loved it so much?
Literally THE greatest LGBT+ story of all time. I LOVE this story. Albertalli and Silvera are a POWERHOUSE. If you haven’t read this you are actually, genuinely, seriously missing out. I did not want this to end and I want a sequel or just to be able to read it again for the first time.
Beauty and the Beast
What book do you think is/will be timeless?
I’m right though, aren’t I? Simon will always be a thing. It is immortalised. [NB: BECKY ALBERTALLI IS QUEEN]. There is something undeniably beautiful, naive and sweet about this story that everyone loves.
So This is Love
What book were you hesitant to read at first but
ended up loving?
I was hesitant to start with because there was so much hype around this one and I just worried it wouldn’t be as amazing as other LGBT+ romance stories. But omg, this is great, guys. I truly loved this book because the difficulties these kids face are so tough!
Friend Like Me
Which character would you like to be your best
We all want Monty as our naughty best friend. Don’t lie. He’s absolute trouble and you just know that your life would never be dull with him in it. Monty is totally ridiculous and I just relate to his overactive internal monologue so much.
What book really made you think/changed the way
you viewed things?
This really made me take a step back and appreciate the power of diversity in books. Until I read this book, I had not read a book that spotlighted disabilities so strongly. The entire cast of characters in Borderline are disabled one way or another and recruited a defence against fae coming into reality. This is a spellbinding queer urban fantasy that I would highly recommend.
Colours of the Wind
Who do you tag?
I’m going to go crazy here and talk some booktubers too. I know, wild.
I challenge everyone I tag (and anyone else who wants to do this) to answer the prompts only using queer books!
