Desert Island Book Tag!

I guess Sunday is just becoming my tag day!

Hey guys and happy Sunday! Today I am tackling the Desert Book Tag which I was tagged to do by the brilliant Grace @ Quirky and Perculiar. I think books are life anyway, so catergorising them into water, food and ect will be fun!

Onto the tag!
Water: A book that you found refreshingly different.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Novel by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

This book was so refreshingly awesome! I think Ari was such a great protagonist because he felt saw raw and intense. Also Ari and Dante’s families were so warm and supportive of their friendship.

Food: An essential book you can’t live without.

The Harry Potter Series

I think I should get another favourite book/series because this must be getting so repeitive for you lot. But I love HP and I can certainly say that my life would be different without it.

Weapons: A book that is massive and could be used a weapon.

The Complete First Edition: The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm by  Jacob Grimm , Wilhelm Grimm,

Andrea Dezsö (Illustrator), Jack Zipes (Translator)

I got this book for Christmas because I thought it would be cool to have the original folk tales and fairy tales on my shelf. This book is a heavy one! But I would be reluctant to use it because of the illustrations.

Companion: A Book Characters That You Would Want To Be Stuck On A Desert Island With

Six of Crows- Kaz Brekker

Kaz would be able to hold himself good in this situation and he seems like he has trouble with killing so food wouldn’t be a problem. I bet he could be a laugh when he’s not being so intense.

Map: A book with an amazing map inside.

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This book has not one but two maps! And they are both beautiful! You can tell a lot of effort has been made to make them great.

Threat: A book you were afraid to read but ended up conquering.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I wasn’t really afraid of reading this book, just cautious about crying but I was right about being cautious because this book is so tragic and sad!

Compass: A book that you would give a new reader to get them interested in reading.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

This book is so lighthearted and fun, I think a new reader would enjoy this contemporary, fantasy clash! Not to mention it’s hilarious!

SOS: A book that is under hyped but you want everyone to read.

Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian

I love this middle grade historical fiction! I think most people have read this book, but I think it should get lots more hype to make sure over people read this book as well.

Rescued: A book you are anticipating to be released.

Foxlowe by Eleanor Wasserberg

I know there are loads of great YA book being released but I think this book should be hyped up a bit as well. I think this book is going to be magical realism but I’m not sure. But the summary sounds great so I’m sold.

Tagging Time!

I tag…

Gabby @ Gabby The Dauntless Warlock

Cinderzena @ Cinderzenablogs

Chelsie @ Chelsie’s Book Addiction

Jonas @ Other Things

Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek

This tag was so fun to do and if you want to do it and your not tagged you can do it too!

I’ll write soon!
