The High School Book Tag

I was tagged by Jasmine @ How Useful It Is so long ago it is embarrassing! May 15… Now it is July 6th. I am so sorry for this taking so long, but thank you Jasmine so much for tagging me! Now I’m finally getting to it and I hope you (and everyone else) will enjoy my answers 🙂

The rules:
  • Thank the creators: Namitha @ Teen Memoir and Jasmine @ How Useful It Is, THANK YOU!
  • Answer the questions.
  • Add pictures! (If you want to)
  • Tag (about) 5 people.

A+ on the test
A book or character that makes you smile?

How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse

Should I go for the obvious one? No, I think I’ll try to be more creative than that. So instead I chose How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse (How to Train Your Dragon #4) by Cressida Cowell. This one makes me smile just thinking of the Swedish title Hur du stjäl en potatis, which loosely translates to How you steal a potato.

Sports team
A fictional family that you want to be a part of?

The Weasley Family

This time I cannot go for anything else than Harry Potter related, the Weasly family. Who wouldn’t love to be part of this amazing and loving family?

Class President
A book that tries to make a difference?

The Sixth Extinction

The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert definitely tries to open up peoples eyes to what is happening in the world and how serious it is. It tells the reader about how species are disappearing from this world in an alarming rate – the sixth mass extinction. I recommend it to everyone.

High School Sweetheart
A book character you have a crush on?

A Court of Mist and Fury

Which one to chose? I try to think of a recent one but haven’t really had any these last few months. But oh back in January, Rhysand from A Cour of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Didn’t crush on him as much in ACOWAR though.

Prom Night
A book with a beautiful cover?

Fantastic Beasts

This is the most beautiful book I own, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling. I wish more books were designed like this. It is just stunning and has a premium place on my shelf.

Spring Break
A book you can always turn to when you need an escape?

Harry Potter och De Vises Sten

I cannot say anything else on this. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling has been, and will probably always be, the book I turn to in time of need. Here you see the Swedish cover (which I think is one of the more beautiful ones).

School Lunch
A book character(s) you want to have lunch with?

mistborn

Kelsier from The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson. His energy and joy and determination. I think it would be an inspiring lunch. He would probably convince me to do something dangerous for some dangerous and impossible cause.

Halloween Party
A character you would like to be for one day?

The Way of Kings

Shallan Davar from The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson. This is a really strong female character that is multidimensional and believable. If you want to read a multi-perspective story with kick-ass female and male characters, read this! Shallan is not alone.

School Bully
A villain you don’t want to go to school with?

Promise of Blood

Julene from The Powder Mage Trilogy by Brian McClellan. What a despicable woman! She only does things for herself, with no regard to others. High School would have been hell if she’d been there.

Graduation
A book with a bittersweet conclusion?

The Book of the Unnamed Midwife

The Book of the Unnamed Midwife by Meg Elison is incredible. It was one of the top books I read last year and I need to reread it. Everyone, no matter what genres you usually read, should read this. It is a gift to have read this book.


Have to say I’ve been really bad at posting for quite some time. But no stress and no worries. I won’t make any promises, just know this, this blog has not died 🙂

I TAG: Ribbon Reviews, Darque Dreamer Reads, Blame It on Chocolate, Whimsy Pages & Books Inked

  1. Thanks for tagging me Ida! I’ve been absent for some time I know, BUT I’m back and I’m going to do all the wonderful tags. Thanks again for tagging me! By the way, did you get the job you applied to for the summer?

    1. Wonderful that you’re back! 😀 Cannot wait to read all the tags!

      I applied for like 15 different jobs and luckily I got one^^ The summer is nearing its end here in Finland so I only have one week left though. Already thinking about what to do next year 😅 but first back to uni for another year of studies.

      1. Haha I did almost all of them today 😅😂 glad you got one! Where did you work? Did you esrn enough money? Was it fun? Yah, in Germany it’s not better. We had 12°C today 😧

      2. Oh jeez… 12? That’s awful (but that’s been our average temperature this summer, it’s NOT normal!), we had a bit better today though. Thought you would have it better in Germany, hasn’t there been almost way too dry in southern Europe?

        I’ve worked at a waste management company the whole summer, get university credits as well as a salary from it so cannot complain^^ Will have enough money to not just survive until next summer, but also live (Y)

        What have you been up to this summer?

      3. Yes in the South they had really problems with the heat. In Germany, we had floodings because it rained so much :/

        Yah I’m also working at the real estate firm I work at duribg the semester. But thankfully I’m not working full time all August but only this week. So I have still enough time to relax and fr Magic Chest 😀

      4. I don’t know which would be preferable, flooding or drought… Here it’s just been too cold so all the vegetable farming is late, it’s the same with berries and other thing you’d like to collect. Everything is about 3 weeks late 😔

        Lucky you! I’ve been going full time since the beginning of May, and won’t slow down since I go straight from work to uni. Already waiting for the middle of October when Fall Break arrives.

        How’s Magic Chest going? Love seeing all the sneak peaks and showcases of the boxes^^

  2. I love reading your answers! I know you are a huge Harry Potter fan so I can guess you would choose Harry Potter as the book you will turn to 🙂 I almost couldn’t recognize the Weasley family because they are so old! haha.. I do love that cover from Fantastic Beast too. I haven’t read the other books you mentioned but A Court of Mist and Fury is one I intend to read soon. I’m glad you did the tag and hey, it’s better late than never 🙂 Thanks for doing it! I hope you had fun coming up with answers! 🙂

    1. It is always a struggle with tags when they ask about “most important”/”best”/”holds most memories” book and I try to mix it up but all I can think about is Harry Potter 😅
      You should read ACOMAF, I really didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. It just pulled me in!
      I had very fun coming up with the answers, and thanks again for tagging me! ❤
