Book Tag: Book Sacrifice

Hello, my dear friends. I can call you friends, right? I've been wanting to do this tag ever since I first saw it on Ariel Bissett's channel. I love how honest she always is. If you don't know her, you should check her out. I love sharing my unpopular opinions so I thought I'd do the Book Sacrifice Tag. Shall we?

The rules are quite simple. You need to pick a book you'd be willing to sacrifice in each scenario.

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?!

Ahhhh!! Zombies!! Quick, quick, what should I pick? Wait, that's easy. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. I really couldn't stand Eleanor as a character so I won't be sad when zombies eat her up. Park on the other hand... meh, I wouldn't mind either. I got half-way through this book before putting it down. I didn't connect to the characters at all. I have enjoyed other Rainbow Rowell books so I guess it's just this one in particular. I really don't get the buzz for this one. Bye!

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? 

Oh, come on, not my hair! Ugh. Well, I really doubt I would have a sequel I disliked casually in my purse, but okay. Let's say I do, that book would be Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. I loved Delirium but the second book was so boring, I couldn't get through it. 

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?

I'm not a big fan of classics, most of the time I can't stand how long they take to actually say something. But from the ones I've read, the absolute worst was Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. My goodness, I read this book for college and I hated every second of it. It's SO SLOW. And I just despised how the main character is always the victim and feels like she deserves everything that  happens to her. I understand that it was written in a different time period from ours, but come on. Is "Once victim, always victim" for real? I had to dnf it and ended up watching the bbc mini series. Eddie Redmayne stars in it 💗 and I truly enjoyed it. I would love to chuck this stupid book at my lit class teacher. 

4) Your least favorite 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 favorite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?

Well, if I'm honest with you, I think I would just freeze to death. I don't like getting rid of books and much less burning them. But If it came down to it, I guess I would burn the whole Vampire Diaries books. And any other book by the same author. I'm sorry, but they're really bad. And this way, I would have quite a lot of books to burn. 

Well, I always feel sad to let books go, but if it was life or death, I'd say: Bye, Felicia!

Feel free to do this tag and leave a link! What are your choices? Who's your most hated lit teacher?
