In this tag, you build a “burger” with books that answer the questions representing each layer of the burger. I have tried to include some different books from my shelves as it always nice to give a shot out and recommendation to those great books that get lost behind the hype of the books in the media.
1. You start out with your bottom bun, What book is your favorite start to a series?
I knew I liked this book but it wasn’t till I reread it that I realised just how much I love it. That book is Divergent by Veronica Roth. I enjoyed the characters, the world and this plot of this book and it made me want to read more.
2. Now you add a burger patty, What big (400+ pages) book do you love?
Trying to pick just one book is hard, but I want to go with books that don’t seem to be well know so I’ve gone for Blood Ties by Sophie McKenzie. This ended up being the first book in a fantastic action packed duo-logy. The story was gripping due to it’s strong plot base and I would highly recommend this book to people who enjoy action books.
3. Now you need cheese and lettuce, What is one small (200- pages) book you read and one small one you need to read?
A 200- pages that I ave read and enjoyed is The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyers. I wasn’t expecting anything from this book but it turned out to be a really really enjoyable read.
One that I want to read is Number The Stars by Lois Lowry. I recently read The Giver and found it a very easy read but also interesting and the blurb of this one has also caught my attention.
4. Now you need to add a tomato, What is one average size (200-400 pages) book you either loved or hated?
I had to go for another book I loved to share with you an author I really like but doesn’t seem to be known at all. Notes From The Teenage Underground by Simmone Howell. I read this book while I was in secondary school and it is one I still remember the enjoyment I felt whilst reading it. Simmone is an Australian author and I have read all her books but this one will always stick with me.
5. Now you add a sauce, What is one book you thought you would love but hated, or vice versa?
Tomorrow, When The War Began by James Marsden was a book I was really looking forward to. I had been reading a lot of dystopian and this one interested me with both its plot and I’m not ashamed to admit it but its cover. However I was totally disappointed. There was too many characters that weren’t developed enough and I felt the plot was totally unrealistic.
6. Lastly, you need to add your top bun, What book that ends a series are you dreading the release of or one you did because you don’t want it to end?
This was easy. Brothers To The Death by Darren Shan. This was the last book in The Saga of Larten Crepsley, a phenomenal companion series to go along with The Saga of Darren Shan. It followed the life of Larten Crepsely and the final book brought together his story with Darren’s perfectly, along with providing you interesting information about lot of recognisable characters. I would definitely suggest reading this if you enjoyed The Saga of Darren Shan.
