First post of 2016.Yaaay.
I believe you must be thinking something like: “She’s insane! Who would like to sacrifice books if she loves them?!”. But let me tell you, I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a while because it was pretty fun to watch booktubers doing the same.
Because nobody tagged us to do this tag, now I’m tagging everyone who want to do it.
This tag was originally founded by booktuber Ariel Bisett. In different situations in life in order to save your health, physical or mental, or even to save your own life you have to do unthinkable – to sacrifice books, but those you don’t really like.
If our opinions don not match, please don’t kill me. Everyone has the right on their opinion, and this is just made for fun.
1. An Over-hyped Book
Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’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 zombies’ 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?!
Well acutally, i don’t really hate this book. At first I thought it was okay. But as the time passed I realised that I could live without that one just fine. That book would be “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer.
2. A Sequel
Let’s say you’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?
Honestly this’s really easy. That book would be “Allegiant” by Veronica Roth. After two amazingly-genious books this one was such a disappointment – too many deaths and that thing with DNA completelly ruined it for me.
3. A Classic
Let’s say you’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 it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?
Well, you probably haven’t heard of this book because nah, it’s not worldwide classic, but it’s required read in primary shools in Serbia. It fits so perfectly with this whole chucking-in-a-face thing. The book I’m talking about is (it could be translated something like this) “Priest Cira and priest Spira” by Stevan Sremac and it’s extremely boring, but my teacher couldn’t stop talking how excellent this damn book is.
4. Your Least Favourite Book of Life
Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’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?
I think I haven’t still found the least favorite book of life, but this one is pretty close. I’m talking about “The Cottage” by Danielle Steel. It was just so predictable and so boring.
What do you think? Which books would you choose to sacrifice? 🙂
