The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis — I’m sure there are others, but I don’t think I’ve read those books to actually make a fair comparison … so, I’m using the same answer as before. The batttle scene … SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

2018 Answer: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE

|| A Rags To Riches Or Riches To Rags Story ||

2767052

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins — Though it’s not under the best circumstances, Katniss and Peeta do go from an extremely poor living conditions to fancy mansion homes. Not only this, but they become part of the “social circle” events due to their participation in the hunger games.

2018 Answer: Mare Barrow in the Red Queen series

THE APPLE DOES NOT FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

|| A Parent Child Relationship That You Love ||

2018 Answer: The Weasley’s (and Harry Potter) in the Harry Potter series

YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

|| A Great Book That Needs A Better Cover ||

7338243

Library Wars: Love & War Series by Kiiro Yumi — I’m in love with this manga series (DESPERATELY looking for the last few volumes) … but this cover … blah.

2018 Answer: I apparently had no idea … guess I found one!

|| What’s A Book That Made You A Better Person For Having Read It ||

157993

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry — There are so many beautiful quotes to live by in this story. From learning to care for others’ feelings to coping with loss, this book made me open my eyes to the world beyond my own little bubble and how much actions can have consequences that I don’t even realize.

2018 Answer: the Winnie-the-Pooh novels

LOVE IS BLIND

|| A Book With A Disabled Character Or Actual Blind Love ||

23437156

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo — Kaz, one of the main characters, has a permanent leg injury and has to use a cane when walking long periods of time. However … he’s still a badass fighter and character in general, and doesn’t let this get in the way of anything!

2018 Answer: Graceling

IGNORANCE IS BLISS

|| A Book That Is Bad But You Just Don’t Want To Admit It ||

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway — Yup, couldn’t change my answer. Finding out how much of a racist Hemingway was (according to research) was REALLY disappointing. It’s like finding out your hero was actually the villain in a novel or movie. This novel was EVERYTHING to me in undergrad … now, I don’t know … UGH.

2018 Answer: The Sun Also Rises

THERE IS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

|| What Is Your Favorite Contemporary Book? ||

2018 Answer: The Outsiders

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY

|| A Book You Don’t Want To Read In Case It’s Bad ||

37688046

The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken — I actually really enjoyed the first three novels … when I thought it was going to stay a trilogy. So when it ended, I was happy with it. Now that there’s another book, I was going buy it right away … but now?? I don’t know … I kind of like how it already ended.

2018 Answer: Wild Beauty

  1. Omg, I actually bought Library Wars awhile ago completely on a whim but I never actually read it! I must give it a go now 🙂 Also I TOTALLY AGREE ABOUT THE DARKEST LEGACY!! I adored TDM trilogy but I kind of want to just put it to rest now?

  2. Oh why thank you for tagging me! 😀
    I love how you compared your answers to your previous answers! 🙂
    I haven’t seen the Narnia movies, but I loved the books! One day I’m going to watch the movies! I already have an answer for this question yay! 😀
    I agree with THUG! Such a powerful family dynamic.
    Ah! The Little Prince! Such a great book! I have the movie still in my queue on Netflix… I should really get to watching it!
    Great answers for this tag 😀

    1. Of course! 😀 It was cool to see how many different answers I had!

      I LOVE the movies and the books! Even though I loved the battle scenes and such more in the movies, the books are still great.

      THUG is fantastic, though I wasn’t a fan of the movie. I felt like the ruined it, which is a shame since the book’s SO FLIPPIN’ GOOD! And it wasn’t the acting, since I thought the cast was amazing. It’s just how they changed the story and key parts.

      I haven’t seen the movie adaptation of The Little Prince yet either, but I’m going to watch it soon! The film looks adorable!

      Thanks, love! ❤

      1. It’s always fun to look back at our past answers! 😀
        I bet the movies are really good! Again, I bet nothing beats the books! 🙂

        Oh, I haven’t seen THUG the movie yet. Now I’m not so sure, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it. Mehhh the fact that they changed key things is sad.

        Doesn’t the Little Prince look so cute! I may download it and watch it on my plane ride 🙂

  3. Thank you for the kind words. I loved reading your answers I definitely think you should skip reading The Darkest Legacies. I loved the first 3 books and I had high hopes for the 4th one but it was such a disappointment for me. I am going to be reading the novellas hopefully this month.

  4. Ooh thank you for the tag! I’ve added it to my ‘to do’ list. I’m getting through them slowly now!

    I like how you’ve compared to last year which is a nice way of doing the tag twice but also comparing your books and if you’re reading style has changed. I’ll have to have a think of what I’ll answer for some of these are some of them look tricky to answer!

    1. LOL! I think we’ve ALL been there. I just caught up but I got tagged recently (which I’m PERFECTLY fine with) so I have that on my TO DO list.

      Thanks! I wasn’t going to do it since I had already done the tag … but I had a feeling many of my answers changed — apparently, i was correct ha-ha!

  5. 100% agree with you about The Little Prince. It’s one of the most powerful books out there. I actually made a quote for it way back on my blog, and really would like to print and frame it.

    I’m sorry to hear about “I’m number four”. I really loved the movie when it first came out. I probably watched it more than 10 times at this point 😀 And always wanted to pick up the books.

    And I still need to read Six of Crows… But I’d like to read the Grisha trilogy first, so… who knows when that’s going to be! 😀

    Liked by 1 person

    1. A quote from the book or you made? Do you mind if i asked what it is? (I’m a lover of words and meaningful quotes lol!)

      I don’t really remember the movie but I remember not being a fan of the book at all … and I really wanted to!

      I didn’t read the Grisha trilogy but luckily still understood what was going on ha-ha!! I think if I could do it again though, I would read the Grisha trilogy first. I do like Six of Crows, but the 6+ POVs gets to me after a while lol!!

  6. Lovely answers for this tag! I also loved the family dynamics in The Hate U Give, they made me so, so happy and we need way more contemporaries with great families like that one 🙂
    I really need to read The Gentlemen’s Guide eventually, I’ve heard so many great things about this book! 😀

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Awe, thanks!! I would really like to re-read The Hunger Games one day …

      Oh my goodness … The Gentleman’s Guide is SOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD! I ACTUALLY plan to re-read it AGAIN because I have no willpower with that novel ha-ha! You’ll have to let me know your thoughts on it!
