‘the greatest showman’ book tag

Basically like the last tag I did.  Rules are: answer the questions and tag whoever you want.  Using my graphic is optional, but recommended. 🙂

~’The Greatest Show’: Name a book that’s as entertaining as a circus

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.  Probably my favorite of the Lunar Chronicles.  Intense and interesting.

~’A Million Dreams’: Name a book that’s set in a fantastical world

I haven’t read much fantasy, so I’ll have to go with Gregor the Overlander (+ entire series).  I mean, the Underland isn’t toooo much different from the world up here.  Except for all the giant animals.  And the pale skin and violet eyes on the humans.  It’s a little strange and a little scary and a little magical (though not literally – there’s no actual magic in the series).

~’Come Alive’: Name a book that makes you outrageously happy

I don’t know about ‘outrageously’.  But The Blue Castle (by L.M. Montgomery) is a wonderful book.  It doesn’t start happily, but it definitely ends that way and it always cheers me up.

~’The Other Side’: Name a book that changed your mind about something

Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery.  I used to think that all the books after Anne of Green Gables were boring.  Ha!  Now the entire series is one of my very favorites, and Rilla of Ingleside is one of the best of the lot in my opinion.

~’Never Enough’: Name a book that you’ve re-read more than once

Soooo many.  I’m going to go with While Mortals Sleep by Jack Cavanaugh because I’ve re-read the entire Songs in the Night series at least three times.  Probably more.  And you want to know why?  Because it’s GOLD.  Historical fiction gold.  I love it so, so much.

~’This Is Me’: Name a book with a character that reminds you of yourself

That’s tough!  Maybe Liesel, from The Book Thief (by Markus Zusak)?  We both read and write and love books and Max and Hans and Rosa and Rudy.

~’Rewrite the Stars’: Name a book with a forbidden romance

Heartless by Marissa Meyer.  Cath is supposed to marry the King but then Jest comes into her life, with his eyes the colour of the lemons that grew in her bedroom and, well, he sweeps her off her feet by being simply…Jest.  Their romance was doomed right from the start, what with Cath destined to become the Queen of Hearts and all, but it didn’t keep me from rooting for them and loving their relationship.

~’Tightrope’: Name a book with an adventurous main character

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy.  Duh. 😉

~’From Now On’: Name a book with a wonderful family (related or otherwise)

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.  I know, I know.  I’m frightfully unimaginative.  I use this book as the answer to everything. (Which it kind of is.)  You’ve got the Curtises as a family, but then you’ve also got the larger family of the gang.  Darry, Sodapop, Ponyboy, Johnny, Dally, Steve, Two-Bit.  Together, they form one of the awesomest, most tight-knit families in all of literature.

  1. So much fun!! 😀 Here we go:

    – “The Greatest Show”: a book that’s as entertaining as a circus: “The Phantom Tollbooth.” It’s like a playground for your mind.
    – “A Million Dreams”: a book set in a fantastical world: The Chronicles of Narnia. I love Narnia.
    – “Come Alive”: a book that makes you outrageously happy: “Farmer Boy.” SO MUCH GOOD FOOD. *grins*
    – “The Other Side”: a book that changed your mind about something: “Bread Givers.” It made me think about women’s equality in a different light.
    – “Never Enough”: a book you’ve re-read more than once: “Shadows on the Rock.” So many gorgeous descriptions, and it’s such a cozy story.
    – “This Is Me”: a book with a character who reminds you of yourself: “Fangirl.” Cath Avery is literally me. Shy, socially awkward, stubborn, imaginative, a writer . . . do I need to go on??
    – “Rewrite the Stars”: a book with a forbidden romance: “Persuasion” by Jane Austen. Needs no explanation 😉
    – “Tightrope”: a book with an adventurous main character: “Death Comes for the Archbishop.” The Bishop travels thousands of miles by horseback all over the Southwest and if that’s not adventure, I don’t know what is.
    – “From Now On”: a book with a wonderful family: “In My Father’s House.” That book has some wonderful, messy, complex, strong family bonds.

    Thanks for tagging me, Eva! I enjoyed it! ❤
