Types of Memes Book Tag

Book Tag

This is my first book tag! Thank you so much to Kate @ meltingpotsandothercalamities for tagging me. Do check out her cool blog! The Types of Memes Book Tag was created by Icebreaker694.

Having never used memes before, I’m a little unsure about how to attribute them. So with that in mind, I’ve decided to improvise and use pictures from Pixabay instead. I hope Kate and Icebreaker694 can forgive me for this slight detour! See if you can spot the captions I’ve added to a few of the pictures, in an effort to make them more meme-y.

Rules:

  • Pingback to creator (Icebreaker694) ALWAYS!
  • Link back to the person who tagged you and thank them.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Provide a meme for each question.
  • Tag 7+ people, don’t kill the tag!

“GRUMPY CAT” — A BOOK YOU HAVE NEGATIVE FEELINGS ABOUT.

Rhett Butler’s People by Donald McCaig. This is an authorised sequel to Gone With the Wind, told from Rhett’s perspective. There are so many GWTW inaccuracies and the ending is such a letdown. My review.

“WHAT IF I TOLD YOU” — A BOOK YOU SPOILED FOR YOURSELF.

I’m not sure I’ve ever spoiled a book for myself, but someone else did once. When I was in secondary school, I overheard a girl joke about how she spoiled Harry Potter for another person by revealing which character had died in the newly released book. I was actually reading the book at the time and a part of me hoped it wasn’t that character, even though it was.

“I DON’T ALWAYS MAN” — A BOOK YOU DON’T ALWAYS LIKE, BUT WHEN YOU’RE READING IT YOU DO.

I don’t always read e-books, but when I do, it’s a hoot!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This was one of the books we read in English class as part of secondary school. I didn’t really get it back then, but when I read it again years later, I realised I do like it.

“90’S SPIDERMAN” — A GOOD CLASSIC OR RETRO BOOK THAT’LL NEVER GET OLD.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I love the sparkling wit and humour.

“MARCHING BAND MEMES” — A BOOK THAT’S VERY RELATABLE.

Tuba or not tuba? That is the question.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Although it’s set in the 1950’s, this book resonated with me when I was a teenager. I think lots of young people can relate to the journey that Holden Caulfield goes through.

“DEMOTIVATIONAL” — A BOOK THAT YOU’VE SEEN ALMOST EVERYWHERE.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Still debating whether I should read this.

“YOU DON’T SAY” — A PREDICTABLE BOOK.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Although I predicted the ending quite early on, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. My review.

“ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY” — ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY BINGE READ THE ENTIRE BOOK. (A BOOK YOU BINGE READ.)

One does not simply accuse me of eating one’s homework.

In my younger days, I remember binge reading each of the Harry Potter books.

“CHEMISTRY CAT” — A BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW

professor-1875628_1920

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I learnt many life lessons from this book, including standing up for what you believe in. Atticus Finch sums it up brilliantly when he says “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” Wise words.

“PET MEMES” — A BOOK THAT’S JUST REALLY ADORABLE.

Street Cat Bob which is the Quick Reads version of A Street Cat Named Bob. This is a sweet and uplifting book which has been turned into a film. It’s the true story of James Bowen, a homeless man in London, who adopts a stray ginger cat which he names Bob. James faced difficulties sleeping rough and was a recovering heroin addict when he found the injured Bob. They both end up saving each other’s lives.

I tag you, dear reader 🙂 Have fun!

  1. Haha, it’s okay that you “cheated” (I know I did). I also spoiled Harry Potter for myself (I read a little bit of The Half Blood Prince when I was little) and I had to sit on that spoiler for YEARS. And I did enjoy The Fault in Our Stars, but on reread, I didn’t like it as much as I used to. But I remember being surprised that I liked it!

    1. Spoilers are the absolute worst! Yeah, it’s funny how we can react differently to books when rereading them. I probably will read The Fault in Our Stars so that I can see what all the hype is about. Thanks again for tagging me, Kate! 🙂

      1. The Fault in Our Stars is mainly character driven, and the writing is beautiful. I do think you should check it out, but I’d still be cautious; the story isn’t terribly strong, and while I liked the majority of the characters, I can see why others wouldn’t.
