Hey everyone, I’ve been seeing this tag everywhere recently and being an active Sims Freeplay player and former Sims 3 player I was just hoping someone would tag me, and thankfully, Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger, tagged me! So thank you to her!
I haven’t done a tag in a year I’m pretty sure so I apologize if I’m a bit rusty but let’s get into the questions!
1. The Original Sims: The best author debut.
For this one I am definitely going with Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens by Becky Albertalli. It is my favourite YA contemporary ever and it’s hard to believe it was Becky’s debut since it was so good! If you haven’t read this already I highly suggest picking it up. It’s quick and fun but also discusses important topics, and the romance is adorable!
2. The Grim Reaper: The saddest character death.
I don’t want to answer this one specifically because I wouldn’t want to spoil anyone, but basically all of the deaths in Harry Potter broke my heart.
3. Sims Getting Stuck: A character that just got in the way.
For this one I’m going to go with Sophia from the Passenger duology. She was bothersome and sarcastic in a rude way, not a funny way. I didn’t enjoy her very much and she always seemed to cause an issue, like Etta time travelling in the first place.
4. Simlish: A book with amazing writing.
Of course for this one I have to go with my favourite book ever, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. The second I opened the first page in this book I fell in love. It’s told from the perspective of death (for those of you who don’t know) and the writing is just raw and truthful and absolutely beautiful.
5. Expansion Packs: A series where the books kept getting better.
I absolutely fell in love with A Court Of Thorns And Roses when I read it and then A Court Of Mist And Fury came out a monthish after that and I was blown away. Having not read any Sarah J. Maas before that I was so thrilled with the series and I’m so excited for A Court Of Wings And Ruin to come out, I hope it continues the trend of the books getting better each time.
6. Sims Romance: The worst case of insta love.
This is a bit of an unpopular opinion but I found Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon extremely insta-lovey. 😦
7. Cheats: A book that was entirely unrealistic.
I feel like I cannot even answer this one because besides contemporaries, almost all the books I read are unrealistic because they are fantasy!
8. Needs Fulfillment: A character who made all the wrong decisions.
I’m going with Eadlyn from The Heir/Crown. She was annoying and made unintelligent decisions throughout her two books.
9. Error Code 12: A series that started off great but went downhill from there.
One word: Divergent.
10. The Sims Vortex: A book/series that completely engrossed you.
And last but not least, I am going to pick my current book obsession, V.E. Schwab’s, A Darker Shade Of Magic series. I obtained the first two books in this series in the summer and never ended up reading them then, but now months later I fell through ADSOM in one night and the sequel in only a few days. The captivating worlds and characters had my eyes locked on the pages of these books at all times and I thoroughly enjoyed them both. I’ve pre-ordered the third books and I’m dying waiting for it, I cannot image how everyone who had to wait a whole year for it feels!
That’s all the questions! I hope you all enjoyed this post, I tried to talk about my favourites as well as some books I don’t normally mention on here!
And for the last step, I tag:
And everyone else who plays sim, I highly encourage you do this tag!
And even if you guys don’t play Sims, it’s still a fun tag! Also if you’ve done the tag already, oops!
And lastly, let me know in the comments, do you play sims? And have you read any of the books I mentioned in this post?
