Tag: 80s Movie Book Tag

Little known fact about me: I have hardly seen any recent movies, but I absolutely love 80s movies. Maybe it’s because those are the movies my mom loves and I grew up watching them with her. Whatever the reason, I have seen all of these movies except for A Nightmare on Elm Street, and that’s only because I only recently started watching spooky movies.

Anyway, I was really happy to see that Siobhan and Laura Beth had tagged me in this one! Thank you! ❤


A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP ALL NIGHT

I love my sleep, so there aren’t many books that keep me up all night. I do remember staying up until the middle of the night (with tears streaming down my face) to finish Me Before You.

A WONDERFULLY QUOTABLE BOOK

Honestly, I have to go with Siobhan’s answer here. Nevernight has so many great lines.

A CHARACTER WHO LOVES BREAKING THE RULES

Kvothe from The Name of the Wind kind of just does what he wants, and I love him for it.

A BOOK COUPLE THAT TOOK AN ETERNITY TO GET TOGETHER

Gansey and Blue from The Raven Cycle! Goodness gracious, it took forever for these two to get together, but the wait was totally worth it.

A BOOK INVOLVING TIME TRAVEL

I was struggling to remember which book I recently read that featured time travel, and then I remembered. Paper Girls! These girls go all over time in the course of this series!

A CHARACTER WITH A UNIQUE STYLE

Prince Sebastian in The Prince and the Dressmaker has an amazing sense of style. He’d outdress me any day.

FAVOURITE BOOK INVOLVING TRAINING/MENTORING TROPE

It took me a minute to come up with the right kind of book for this question, but I think I’ll go with Amour Amour. Nikolai works with Thora to improve her aerial silk skills and… it’s pretty hot, okay.

A BOOK WITH A TRIP THAT DOESN’T GO TO PLAN

I could have gone a few different directions with this one, but I decided to take it literally: in Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Amy and Roger’s road trip just does not go according to plan.

A BOOK WITH THE CENTRAL CHARACTER’S NAME IN THE TITLE

I didn’t love this book, but it’s the first one that came to mind: When Dimple Met Rishi.

A FEMALE CHARACTER WHO COMES OUT OF HER SHELL

In The Kiss Quotient, Stella really comes out of her shell and embraces life and it’s great.

A DEATH THAT TOOK YOU BY SURPRISE

Can I answer this without spoilers? I guess I could use Allegiant. I had heard about the death prior to reading it but still didn’t want to believe it was actually going to happen. I hated this book so much.

AN ENDING THAT LEFT YOU BOTH HAPPY AND SAD

As I remember, the ending of We Are the Ants is pretty open-ended. I didn’t really know how to feel when I finished this book.


I’m not tagging anyone in particular, but please feel free to steal this tag and link back to me so that I can see your answers! What’s your favorite 80s movie? Do you agree or disagree with my choices for this tag? Let’s talk in the comments!

Reading Challenge Update

Somehow February is already done. I don’t even really know how it happened since I swear it just started, but here I am again with another reading challenge update.

Monthly Motif is a reading challenge hosted by girlxoxo.

February’s theme was cover love and I read two books for this prompt:

March’s theme is royalty, kingdom, empires, governments and please feel free to recommend something for me! I’m sure I have plenty of books on my TBR that fit this theme, but I’m drawing a blank right now.

I read a total of 22 books in February, which is a lot better than I did in January. I’m currently 16 books ahead in my goal of reading 100 books this year.

Popsugar hosts a reading challenge every year. You can find out more information on their website.

Eleven of the books I read in February counted toward the Popsugar Reading Challenge. The prompts I checked off in February include:

I ended up checking off a lot more of the Popsugar prompts in February than I thought I would!

Romanceopoly is a reading challenge hosted by Under the Covers and Peace Love Books.

I’ll be honest — I’m not doing too well at the Romanceopoly reading challenge. I checked off two prompts in February. I’m going to have to plan this one out better in the coming months, or there’s no way I’ll ever finish!

The prompts I checked off were:

Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a reading challenge every year. You can find more information on the website.

I might not have done so great with Romanceopoly in February, but Modern Mrs. Darcy is almost done! I checked off seven prompts and only have four left.

The prompts I completed include:

Once again, I waited until the very last second to finish three books that I’ve owned for more than three months, but I did finally succeed. The books I read in February were:


How are you doing on your reading challenges? Do you have any recommendations for me? Let’s talk in the comments!
