The ACB Book Tag 2!

The ACB.png

Thank you!

I want to thank Alex @ Alex Charming Books for tagging me!

I originally thought this was my second time, so I had a “2” in the title, but I couldn’t find the first post, so I just got rid of the “2” altogether.

The reason why I thought I already did it was I found a graphic saved for this tag already, and it led me to believe that I used it. I don’t know, it’s still a mystery to me, but somewhere there’s a ghost post on this blog, haha.

EDIT: I found the post here! It’s no longer a mystery!!!!! (Ignore the graphic error.)

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who tagged you

  2. Use the tags banner (should be at the top of this post)

  3. Mention the creator @Lordofthetrekkies

  4. Answer the questions below

  5. List three of your favorite blogs

  6. Tag at least two others to try this tag


A—Annoying—Name a character that got on your nerves.

Can I say the laptop I’m using? It’s an annoying character in my life, if that counts, haha. (It doesn’t like me, it refuses to load.)

No but really, I’d have to say Tamlin, it’ll always be Tamlin.

17927395

LLabyrinth—A plot that’s hard to understand.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a plot I couldn’t understand. Sure, some plots may have been indirect and they threw me off, but I think I could still understand them. But I guess some things blow over my head that I can’t catch, but it happens on occasion and I don’t know a specific book where that happened.

EExcellent—What book, in your opinion, has the best writing?

9361589

It’s a really descriptive book, maybe some people think it’s too descriptive, however I really thought it gave a nice feel and was easy to visualize.

XXenograft—A plot/situation/character-type that’s been way over used.

I’m going to say a character type and genre.

For genre I’d say contemporary romance. I mean, I’m not against it, and I even pick up books with it, but they’re mostly all the same. Two people fall in love or don’t and eventually do. Some big fight breaks out and they don’t talk for a while. Then they make up and everything is just dandy. Secrets are thrown around, or other people are in the way (like love triangles), and it’s so easy to predict. I still like contemporary romance books, really, it’s just after reading them for awhile they become flat. But that doesn’t stop me from reading them, haha.

For character type, and this applies to manga, it has to be the prince-y/idol type in shoujo. It’s kind of the same for what I said above, after reading so much of it, it becomes flat. But again, doesn’t stop me from reading manga with that type in it. (I actually haven’t enough of the princess type, that’s not included for this.)

CCareless—A book that is filled with plot holes and inconsistency.

Okay, so I can’t remember any books that had any loose ends, so I consulted some of my old reviews and found a book that I said had some. You can read my review of The Crown’s Game here.

26156203

I don’t remember what the holes were, so I can’t tell you, I’m sorry. I’m just going with the review I wrote.

HHelpful—A book that’s always been there for you.

I have to steal the answer from my previous post and say The Familiars. It has always been my go to book when I was little.

7737900

AAnticipation—A book that you’ve wanted to read for a while.

31451174

I still haven’t read it. Whenever I look up in my library to borrow it, it’s already been taken, so I’ll just need to wait a little more.

RRavaged—A book to movie adaptation that really stunk.

Can I say book to show? Yes?

In that case Shadowhunters.

Let the hate roll in. (No no no! I’m sorry. Don’t actually hate me, please.)

I mean compared to the movie, the movie is more accurate, let’s be honest.

MMetamorphic—A character that changed a lot.

28953922

I don’t know why, well I do, but The Diabolic is always the book that I view that has the greatest character change in it.

IIngeniousA one of a kind story/character.

3306394

Bloodhound might not have been the best book setup wise, but Rion was one of those gems that you’d find in a bunch of clutter. She was different from a lot of shoujo MCs that I’m used to reading, and the book overall was very enjoyable.

It was also one of those shoujo books without any romance in it. (Ignore the cover, that dude isn’t much of a love interest.) I mean it’s still shoujo, so there’s tiny snippets of what could happen, but Rion wasn’t interest in anyone in that way.

NNarrativeA retelling of a story that you like better then the original.

Sarah J. Maas books are actually retellings (ToG=Cinderella, ACOTAR=Beauty and the Beast) so I can’t help but like those better than the real deal. 😀 Even if they were loosely based, they still had features of the original tale in them.

GGuruYour go to author.

Sarah J. Maas and Cassandra Clare. 😀

  1. Omg yes Tamlin– I really don’t like him!! And aaas contemporary is so over done sometimes, there mostly the same plots, or very predictable and end up being filled with lots of unnecessary drama. *nahh, no beef pls*. I want to read The Diabolic SO bad!! its been on my TBR sine before it came out and has been sitting on my amazon Wishlist for ages. I hope that you get to read ACOWAR soon, waiting for libraries is so painful sometimes!!

    1. Yes!! We’re on the same wavelength then! (I don’t think anyone who’s survived though ACOMAF liked Tamlin anymore.) And I’m glad you agree! I still read contemporary, but it’s getting predictable. Also it does have a lot of unnecessary drama that’s never actually realistic. I really hope you like it, I thought it was really good!!! And I don’t like waiting too long! I might go out and get it if I have a hard time borrowing it.

      1. YEESSSSS! UGH ACOMAF just opens everyones eyes!!
        I found that once I really got into fantasy, contemporary just didn’t quite match it?? I don’t know if you get that? Yes its meant to be realistic, but I find it so unrealistic.
        Aw thank you!! I hope you don’t have to wait too long

      2. YES! ACOMAF is really the decider book of the series.
        Same! I originally read contemporary, then got into fantasy, then manga, and now it’s harder to see contemporary stories as “original” nowadays.
        And no problem, also thanks!! 😄
