The Olympic Book Tag: Take 2

Stephanies Book Reviews Header

I love the Olympics and I love Olympic Book Tags! Yes, I have already done one, but there are 2 Olympic Book Tags floating around the blogosphere and Deanna from A Novel Glimpse, tagged me for this one.

The Opening Ceremony — What book did you think had an incredible opening?


Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. I was hooked on this book from the start

The Games — What is your favorite fictional competition?


The Hunger Games is literally the only book I can think of with a competition. I feel kind of bad for saying it’s my favorite competition, though, haha.

The Original — The modern games are based on the original Greek competition – what is your favorite book based on a classic?


Definitely, Maybe in Love by Ophelia London. A cute re-telling of Pride and Prejudice

The Eternal Flame  — What is one ship that you won’t let die, even after the books made it clear it was never going to happen?


I usually end up shipping the ship we’re supposed to ship, so the only one I can really think of is *Ruin and Rising Spoilers* Nikolai and Alina. While I was ok with her ending up with Mal, Nikolai was always my favorite.

Gymnastics — What’s a book that had so many twists and turns it left your head spinning? (in a good way)


Golden Son. I was trying really hard not to repeat books, but what is a tag without a Red Rising mention?!

The Controversial Judge  — What’s a book that you have a totally different opinion about than most other people?


Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I just don’t get it. I really did not like this book at all, but the blogosphere loves it.

Beach Volleyball  — What is your favorite fictional duo?


I’m going to go with Shazi and Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn series. I thought they were a great example of a romantic pairing also working together for the greater good.

Weightlifting — What is the most massive book on your shelf?

A collection of Jane Austen’s novels. I love it.

Track & Field — What is a book that you just tore through with world record speed?


I read P.S. I Like You by Kasie West in a day.

Synchronized Swimming — What is a book series that you kept reading, even though you didn’t have any idea why?


Pretty Little Liars. I made it to book 10 before I couldn’t take anymore.

The Tortured Fan — What fictional family, group, nation, or organization do you irrationally root for no matter how many times they break your heart?


Joe from the You series. He is a sociopath, but I always root for him.

Closing Ceremony — What book had an ending that just blew your mind?


Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

    • It’s a fun one – thanks again for tagging me! I hope you get to read P.S. I Like You soon. I am pretty strict with myself when it comes to buying books, but I let myself buy this one instead of waiting for the library.

      • I find that I’ve gotten cheaper and cheaper when it comes to books. I should have bought this one, but I just bought the entire Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie. The first book was free, but I HAVE to read the entire series!

      • Oh I know! A lot of times I’ll get a book from the library that’s a first in the series and then the rest of them aren’t available there. Or the wait is FOREVER. I often have to buy things then.
        I’ve been trying this year to keep buying books as my reward for when I meet weight loss or MyFitnessPal goals…so I haven’t bought a lot this year haha.
