THE BOOK SACRIFICE TAG

I’ve seen this tag on Night Train Books blog and decided to give it a go even if I wasn’t tagged because it looks so fun to do to wait for someone to tag me before I do it. ๐Ÿ˜€ It was just like the Burn, Rewrite, or Reread Booktag only your options are “Burn, Burn, Burn.” Let’s get this going! *evil grins*


1) An Over-Hyped Book: Letโ€™s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Letโ€™s say youโ€™re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombiesโ€™ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!

– Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Oh yes. I remember this book circling all over Instagram as the movie comes out. AND I remember jumping right into it expecting a lot. AND I also remember regretting reading it. THIS BOOK PUT ME INTO A HELLISH BOOK SLUMP. AND the movie was not to discussed. A lot of people loved it but I’m one on the other side who just didn’t.  I guess this is just one of those books where if you love it, you love it, but if you donโ€™t, you donโ€™t. AND I didnโ€™t.

2) A Sequel: Letโ€™s say youโ€™ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

The Scorch Trials. Not just it, rather the whole series. I only read The Maze Runner and the half of The Scorch Trials and it’s enough for me to hate it. Thomas, the main protagonist, and a whole lot more aspects of the book just didn’t work out for me. Though, I like the movie adaptations. I can say they’re even better than the book, The Maze Runner, at least.

(HERE WE HAVE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE *heart eyes*)

3) A Classic: Letโ€™s say youโ€™re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and itโ€™s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?

– I HAVEN’T READ ANY CLASSICS YET. There. *sighs* Okay, I’ve read a couple in our English class, but I don’t really count it as reading. I’m messed up, I know. I’m currently reading Wuthering Heights as of now though.

4) Your Least Favourite Book of Life!: Letโ€™s say that youโ€™re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. Youโ€™re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?

Eclipse. Haters gonna hate, but I’m a huge fan of the Twilight series, both books and films. Eclipse, though. God I hate that book, I literally threw it across my room after I read it. The movie was no better. Whenever I marathon the series, I always skip Eclipse.

There you have it! ๐Ÿ˜€  Just want to remind you that these are just my mere opinions. How about you, what books are you willing to sacrifice?

I’m tagging everyone who wants to do it!

REVIEW: LOVE LETTERS TO THE DEAD BY AVA DELLAIRA

Date read: May 17-19, 2016

My ratingโ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โœฉ

synopsis

Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to the deadโ€”to people like Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, Amelia Earhart, and Amy Winehouseโ€”though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating the choppy waters of new friendships, learning to live with her splintering family, falling in love for the first time, and, most important, trying to grieve for May. But how do you mourn for someone you haven’t forgiven?

It’s not until Laurel has written the truth about what happened to herself that she can finally accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she wasโ€”lovely and amazing and deeply flawedโ€”can she truly start to discover her own path.

There’s death all around us.
We just don’t pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she’s just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that’s all she’ll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there’s a secret she hasn’t told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex’s brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn’t have to be real to keep you from moving on.

APRIL WRAP-UP 2016

April was a blur. A slothful month. I know I could have read more than I did by the past months withย April an official start of summer, but no. I only read TWO! Still better than one read in March though. Hahaha. I just hope May would be a better month at my reading progress but by the look of it, I honestly don’t think so. Yikes!

So last month on annbibliocastro’s activities:

  • Startedย riding a skateboard. Mark: 04-08-16. Haven’t had much progress; still on just simply riding it. I chickenย out every time I try to even make an ollie.

  • I started watching The Walking Dead TV series. I paused at season 4 because of:

  • I’ve started a blog series: Four Fave Fridays & Tuesday Thoughts.

PFVO1841

  • Iย hadย 8 blog posts including three book reviews, one which I read on March and the other two that I read on April.ย You can click here for my April 2016 Archives.
  • I received the Game of Thrones book series from my sister which I can’t stopย admiring for its beauty and intimidating pages.
