I was supposed to do a post earlier today, but I took a nap instead 😂. Sorry for the late post today! Let’s all just pretend that I’m back in Hawaii and that this is a reasonable time for me to post something.
- Post the rules in your post.
- Answer all the questions and if you’ve never heard any of the songs, listen to them before you answer the questions.
- Link the creator and the person who nominated you (Moi @Bookish Blunders).
- Nominate 8 people. Only 8. (Why? There’s no Symphony no. 9, so)
- Use the featured image I’ve posted on this tag. (It’s drawn by Moi, and she’d like some recognition)
Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata: A book you read that had an unexpected plot twist near the end
Anxious People by Fredrik Backman was a book that was constantly throwing unexpected twists my way. I couldn’t take anything for granted and even when I thought I was catching on to some of the tricks, I managed to be surprised by almost every single one.
Lizst – La Campanella: A book that you couldn’t even finish
I DNFed Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (I’M SO SORRY). I found the book to be extremely boring and every time I thought about reading it, I dreaded it. Rob eventually convinced me that it would probably be better for my mental health to just DNF it.
Rimsky-Korsakov – Flight of the Bumblebee: A book that was crazy and chaotic that you couldn’t even figure out what was happening
House of Leaves is a book that is absolutely bonkers from start to finish. It kind of has a story within a story within a story. The book is full of footnotes and pages that will require you to flip the book around to read them. My experience reading it was both fun and horrible. In the end I rated it 5 stars, but I’d never read it again.
Mozart – Rondo Alla Turca: A book that is so over-recommended that everyone and their grandma has read it (it’s still good, though)
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston feels like a book everyone has read (for good reason!). It’s one of my favorite books of all time so I’m one of the people who is probably over-recommending it tbh.
Beethoven – Für Elise: A book that has been one of your favourites for ages
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson is a book that I have adored since I first read it in college in 2013. I keep wanting everyone to read it, but just be warned that it’s a series that was never completed. No one knows what the heck is going on with the next book.
Chopin – Fantaisie-Impromptu: A book that is high up on your to be read list
Rob has wanted me to read Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson for a while and I keep putting it off, so I should really read that soon. It was on my May TBR post, but I still haven’t opened it lol.
Beethoven – Sonata No. 17 “Tempest” 3rd Movement: A book that you love but isn’t that well-known
The Things She’s Seen by Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina is an amazing book that not many people know about. Rob and I randomly decided to buy it from B&N, and we both rated it 5 stars. The story and the writing is beautiful and haunting. I can’t recommend this book enough.
Mozart – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik: A book that is extremely long, but you still like it
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon might be the longest book I’ve read of my own accord (rather than being assigned it in school). It’s a very good book, but it’s over 800 pages so I was terrified when I first picked it up. I read it in chunks of 50-150 pages at a time.
Debussy – Clair De Lune: A book that was wonderful from start to finish
I was a huge fan of The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I read it for a blog tour so you can read my full review here, but the book was so fantastically written that I was thoroughly impressed with the author. I’m curious to try some of her other books, so if you’ve read any of them, recommend me some below!
I basically always fail at tagging specific amounts of people because I can’t deal with that sort of pressure, but I’ll tag the following:
