Β 

I’ve been very fortunate to have been tagged by the creator of this tag πŸ™‚ Johnathan Fisher (blog here).

Β 

Β He is really awesome to even consider me and it literally made my week. You should definitely check out his blog and his tag question because he is freaking hilarious.

Original tag (here)

The tag basically created to showcase your favorite aspects of your favorite books and just literally gush and fangirl all over the place (Emphasis on the gifs)Without any further rambling, let’s proceed to the questions…

 

1. Best story premise

Under The Dome by Stephen King

You would think that when a random dome appears from nowhere traps a bunch of people in a town is pretty basic…

It is so messed up and Stephen King tends to freak the reader with basic scenario and turns it into something scarier. Β I was truly amazed at the concept and how he managed to weave the story. Highly recommend it πŸ™‚

2. Best World-building?

The Lord of The Rings

I haven’t read a lot of fantasy books apart from Lord of the rings, I know I should fix that soon 😦 So I have to give it to the main man himself. The world he created was exceptional, It blows my mind how much of the detail and language that went into it. I would love to sit down with him and just ask him…

If you have not read read or attempted to read….

P.S I would like some really good fantasy recommendation, If you have one or two feel free to tell me in the comments πŸ™‚

 

3. Best Character in a book

This was hard, I have a lot of characters that hold a very special place in my heart and those I wish I could be… I have narrowed it down toΒ Lisabeth SalanderΒ of The Millennium Trilogy ( The Girl with the dragon tattoo) If you haven’t read the famous crime series.

She is bad-ass computer hacker who literally doesn’t give to shit about what anyone says. She has this dark sort of Batman feel to her. Oh! Added bonus she is Pan-sexual, I literally aspire to be her πŸ™‚

4. Best Series

The Millennium TrilogyΒ by Stieg Larsson

I also haven’t read a lot of series other than Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings but I have to shine Β the spotlight to a different series that sort of blew my mind…

These books are very heavy on financial politics and underground crime, which totally sounds mental but it works so well. Translated from Swedish and with the weird yet amazing writing style of The LateΒ Stieg Larsson(RIP)Β .Β He started my obsession with crime and the three books will forever hold a place in my heart πŸ™‚ HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE SERIES πŸ™‚

 

5.Best Tear Jerker (Aka, the John Green Award)

And The Mountains Echoed by Khael HosseiniΒ  & Β Me Before You by Jojo MoyesΒ 

These two books were just the most devastating books I have read this year, I went into them blind and towards the end I was like…

 

and

more of…

I would warn you going into them will utterly destroy you but those are the Β best books:)

6. Best Author?

J.K. RowlingΒ The Queen herself! πŸ™‚ Seriously she reigns πŸ™‚

Β Oh! I know, this tag won’t be complete until we have a Potter-Head shout out…

SHE IS QUEEN!

7. Best Writing StyleΒ 

The Goldfinch

Donna Tartt can write… She managed to make me read this 700+ page book twice in a year. She is very vivid with her description and can make you feel Β like a lot..
Its is such a powerful book in itself but throw in the beautiful prose, lush description, well crafted flawed characters you get one outstanding book πŸ™‚

8. Best Book Cover ( You don’t have to own it)

The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August

by Β Clare North

I really dig these covers, they are so cool and I recently just bought the book. The premise is so cool its about time travel and history and both covers are stunning like can we just swoon πŸ™‚

9. Best Ending

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

What I consider to be a “good ending” to a good book is one that lives me satisfied and in deep thought. The ending is very important and can make or brake the whole book for me.I have read so many great endings but I have to give a shout out to one of the best books.

This entire book is truly glorious and deserves all the praises, even the movie adaptation was spot on πŸ™‚ It was a fresh take when it came to historical fiction and we saw it from a very unique point of view πŸ™‚

It is an important book about a very important topic at a very crucial time in history. I Highly recommend it πŸ™‚

  1. Such fabulous answers! There are a lot of titles on here that I love and others I plan to read in the future. I’ve become an award/tag free blog where I don’t do tags anymore… but my favorite writing style this year is Hanya Yangihara. I think you’d really love A Little Life if you haven’t read it already. It’s also a tearjerker. πŸ˜› And thank you for the tag!

  3. Oh I totally agree with you on the fact that the Lord of the Rings trilogy has the best word building in it. πŸ™‚ If I get started about how much I’m in love with the books, I’m afraid I’ll never stop. So, let me pause right here! And thank you for the tag, it’s super interesting. I’m going to get to this soon! πŸ™‚
