Hey guys! I realised I hadn’t done book-tags in a long, long time, and since they’re actually my secret love, I decided to bring them back. 😛 So here’s presenting the Sick Book Tag, stolen from dancingone. Enjoy! 😀
1. Diabetes – a book too sweet, like really sweet.
I have a feeling many of you have already guessed which book I’m going to choose for this one.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (whose surname I always tend to misspell, which annoys me to no end).
Also, I’m currently reading The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West, which is quite sweet, too! ❤
2. Chicken Pox – a book you picked up once but will never pick up again.
There are tons of books I could use for this one. To Kill A Mockingbird, The Good Earth, House of Leaves, Wuthering Heights… even Lord of the Rings, actually.
Don’t get me wrong, I really loved To Kill A Mockingbird and LoTR and The Good Earth, but I remember all too well the struggle I had to undergo to actually get them finished. I don’t think I’m willing to go through it again. House of Leaves was okay, but definitely not appealing enough for a re-read. As for Wuthering Heights, anyone who has read this post of mine knows that I do NOT like that book.
3. Influenza – a contagious book that spreads like a virus.
“Spreads like a virus”… in the market? Or in the reader’s mind?
If I’m going with the first option, then the answer’s very obvious.
If I see this book one more time, I think I’m gonna start having dreams about the cover. Seriously. I mean, it’s a good enough book, but my eyes can only bear to see a single book cover so many times…
And if I’m going with the second option, then…
Again, an obvious answer. Do I even need to explain?
4. The Cycle – a book you read every month, year, or often.
Not every month or year, but it’s definitely the book I read most often.
5. Insomnia- a book that kept you up all night.
I know, I know, y’all are simply tired of hearing about this one from me. But what can I do? In my mind, it’s THE most horrifying book. But at least now I don’t think about it every 10 seconds!
6. Amnesia- a book that’s forgotten and didn’t leave a powerful impression in your memory.
How am I supposed to name a book that I’ve already forgotten?! How paradoxical!
Okay, let me rack my subconscious mind a bit… 😉
The only thing I seem to remember about this book is that I’ve read it. I also remember that it was a Miss Marple case, which is mainly the reason why the book failed to make an impact on my mind. I don’t really like Miss Marple. Poirot is so much more awesome! 😀
Asthma- A book that took your breath away.
I’ve said this to my friends several times, so I might as well say it here. When I’d finished reading Divergent (I’m talking only about the first book here), I felt like I had just experienced the entire Huger Games trilogy again. It was just that good. And it definitely took my breath away.
Malnutrition- a book that lacked food for thought.
I haven’t read anything like that recently, so I’ll go with the only book coming to my mind right now.
Road to Paradise by Paullina Simons. In short, a book with a whole lot of nothing going on.
Travel Sickness- a book that took you on a trip through time and space.
Um, sci-fi is not really my genre, so I’ll simply go with this one:
Time Machine by H. G. Wells. It’s the best my mind can come up with.
That’s it for now, au revoir!
