I discovered this tag on The Bibliophagist’s page. When I was younger, I enjoyed watching The Breakfast Club. I loved finding out the quirks and secrets from each of the characters stuck in that detention hall!
Princess: a book that is very popular and pretty on the outside, but you thought was uninteresting on the inside
‘In Her Shoes’ by Jennifer Weiner. This story features two sisters as they navigate life’s challenges and romantic misadventures. I really wanted to enjoy this novel, but I found myself disinterested after a few days.
Criminal: A book that looks/sounds rough and bad, but ended up completely stealing your heart
‘Six of Crows’ by Leigh Bardugo. It seemed like a story filled with unexpected events based on a heist, and that plot line usually doesn’t flow well with me. However, it turned out to be a story with captivating characters, and strong female roles. It was an amazing tale.
Brain: A book that made you think
‘The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace’ by Jeff Hobbs. This story features the life of Robert Peace, a man living in an inner city who achieved graduating from Yale, but fell under difficult times in the years that followed. Despite his mother and school mentors doing everything possible to ensure his success in life, the pressure of instant gratification (and the temptation that accompanies it) overcomes him.
Basket Case: A book that people would call you crazy for reading
‘Miss America’ by Howard Stern. He’s such a wild radio personality, but I enjoy his sense of humor! I read ‘Miss America’ and ‘Private Parts’. No regrets!
Athlete: A book that made you struggle/work to finish
‘Minion (Vampire Huntress #1) by L.A. Banks. I began reading this book a few years ago, and couldn’t finish it. Last month I received it from the library, and I finished it in a week, but I realized that I wasn’t as eager to read it as I once was. I motivated myself to finish for the sake of finally figuring out the plot and what happened throughout the story. But it will be a while before I pick up Book 2.
