Book Sacrifice Tag

A big thank you to Emily @ Rose Read for tagging me to do this awfully fun tag! I’ve been seeing it all over lately and now I finally get to take a crack at it. HEHE!


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 so you start chucking it at the zombies?

Let’s be honest, we all loved this series when we were younger… But now? Hell no, Katniss was a whiney bitch and y’all know it too! #TeamGale

2. A SEQUEL

Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

I do not care what y’all say – this book was boring as hell! Easily, my least favorite of the series. I’m sorry but it’s a good thing Rowling learned from her mistakes with this one. It was just awful. The movie couldn’t even save it!

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?

Anything written by that man, there! And for those of you who do not recognize him – that would be Mark Twain. A great American author and someone who’s work I absolutely abhor!!! It’s soooooo dull. Why, people, why?! And to all of you English majors, don’t even try to argue with me about this one. I’ll also toss in F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Can’t stand their novels, neither!

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?

Absolutely, positively, vehemently HATE this book. It makes English teachers feel the need to act all superior like know exactly what Fitzgerald was thinking as he was writing this story. Uh no, just because the lady’s dress is blue does not mean it’s foreshadowing the end of Gatsby’s and Daisy’s relationship. Did Fitzgerald tell you that when he had you over for dinner that one time? HE DIDN’T?! Then no, you do not know what the hell you are talking about.

Feel free to disagree with me in the comments! But don’t worry, you won’t change my mind. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the tag. I like this one. I agree with you on Harry Potter. That was such a bore and so was the movie. You know I love The Hunger Games, but I agree with you on #TeamGale. I thought Peeta was kind of weak, and that Gale was a better choice. That’s who I would’ve picked. I agree with you on Gatsby. Teachers, college professors especially, always act like they had known what Fitzgerald’s intentions were when he wrote the book. I like to form my own opinion of something, instead of a teacher telling me I’m wrong because it doesn’t match their opinion. Such a good point. And I love the dinner comment. This post really made me laugh 🙂

      1. It’s his writing style. Too much telling about characters and back stories, instead of introducing dialogue and more meat to the story. The Beautiful and Damned was painful for me. I barely made it twenty minutes in before I put it down for good.

      2. I only attempted to read that one because it was Sabrina from Gossip Girl’s favorite and she always talked about it, so I had to know what was the big deal. Okay, don’t judge. The Gossip Girl haters are rolling their eyes, but it’s my one guilty pleasure. 🙂 I’m allowed one lol.

  2. Haha, this is awesome! Whilst I agree that The Hunger Games is terribly overhyped, I still quite enjoyed it. I remember reading the Great Gatsby, and whilst I kind of liked it, I hated the way my teacher taught it. So I understand!

  3. I could not disagree with you more about THG. It’s one of my favorites and I HATE Gale. hahaha I also really like The Great Gatsby, but found I liked it 1000x better when I read it on my own than when it was required reading for English class. I feel like having a book as assigned reading made me instantly hate it… Is that just me? lol

    1. Hahaha that’s what I love about posts like this!! And I didn’t always hate assigned reading, and I had already read this book before I read it for class. I just don’t think me and Fitzgerald were meant to be. I can’t stand any of his books haha!

  4. HAHAHAHA. I love this. I actually really liked Huck Finn when I read it in high school, and I just recently bought it to give a reread so we shall see if I still enjoy it. CoS is my least favorite HP book, too!

  5. Oh dear. I love Great Gatsby! It is one of my favorite books, but I never had to read it for school and analyze it, so maybe that’s why I like it so much. I’ve never read any Mark Twain, but want to some day. And I kind of agree about Chamber of Secrets – I used to really hate that book, but after my past couple re-reads of HP I’m disliking Half-Blood Prince more and more each time I read, and Chamber of Secrets I’m enjoying more. Not sure why.

  6. I totally agree with you on the first one #TeamGaleForever I despise Katniss aghhh and I canno wrap my head around people liking her (which is the majority)
    As for your rant about the great gatsby, it is SO hilarious to read, I really laughed there hahaha.
    The only one I might disagree on is Harry Potter but that’s just because I’m attached to ALL the books so I’m not really objective

  7. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Obviously, it had to be the one my family chose as a gift with the double DVD and lots of bonuses… that I never watched. Hated the movie. Who can sit for so long in front of it? The book was not much better. I tend to skip it during rereads!
    I loathe The Great Gatsby. With every fiber of my being. I was forced to read it during my first year at uni. It took me more than a month! You’re so right, teachers will find all kinds of hidden messages in every word and offer a thousand theories about why, where, how, and they act all superior because they think they have mastered this chef d’oeuvre… Argh!!

  8. This tag never fails to make me laugh, just because of the questions; zombie apocalypses and torrential downpours!
    I can’t say I agree with you on the first two though, I really enjoyed The Hunger Games books and Harry Potter *gasp* but I can think of so many classics I would go back in time and unwrite.
