This post is brought to you by the letter P for Procrastination. It’s Final Paper Week at my university, wherein four essays are due within a time span of a week, so needless to say, I should not be on the internet right now. Buuuuuuuut, if I wasn’t blogging, I’d be playing Tetris or refreshing Facebook or just staring blankly at my Word Document, so at least now I’m doing something productive, kind of. It’s time for the GIF Tag! The lovely A Kernel of Nonsense tagged me for this, and for that she gets the Awesome Person of the Moment award.
This tag was a lot of fun, and a great way to read up on some books I didn’t know about, yet! The tag is this: someone gives you a list of ten books, to which you have to find a GIF that accurately portrays you reaction to said book. Very simple, in theory. Quite hard in reality. Especially when you’re looking for a crying gif, and can’t decide with Pam from the Office, or Pikachu from Pokemon. The choices! Gah! But, if I can learn to do it, you can learn to do it, pull yourself together, and you’ll pull through ittttt–oh. Sorry. I’ve been watching too many animated musicals, lately.
Anyways. Let’s begin, shall we?
1. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I just don’t know about this one. On one hand, everybody seems to like it. On the other hand, the summary didn’t really interest me. So, meh. I’m thinking about it. If it really is so amazing ohslkdfjsdk can’t even then let me know, and I’ll give it a try.
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I tried to keep it together. I almost did. I got to those last couple of chapters before the end of the book, and I only lost two tears. And then I finished the book. I closed the cover. And that’s when the sobbing came. I think that was one of the only times were I started crying after the last page; it honestly surprised me.
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
You can’t die. I like you too much!
4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I haven’t read it yet, but the description of the book sounds super cool, and now it’s on my Want List.
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Believe me, if I had any remaining book funds, I’d be at the bookstore in exactly three, two, now.
6. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
“Wait…you haven’t read the Catcher in the Rye? WHAT?”
I’m sorry! I just haven’t. Maybe some day.
7. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
I haven’t read this book, nor have I watched Dexter. But the plot immediately made me think of the television show…or, rather, what I’ve heard of it. I’m sure they are either only slightly similar or maybe not at all, but other than that I didn’t really have any GIF-like thoughts.
8. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This book always brings about heightened emotions. Like, all the shit that goes down I take personally. And I get indignant, furious, miserable, and all those other emotions and it’s all because I love the book.
9. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Finally! A book even Gaston would approve of.
10. A Court of Thorn and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
No! No! Wait up–guys, wait for meeeeee. I still haven’t started the Throne of Glass series! *heavy breathing as I fall behind on all the cool new books.*
So, there you go! My choices for the GIF tag. It was pretty fun tracking down all the different GIFs, and I think I might be sneaking more GIFs into blogging, so watch out and stop me if the mania begins to overwhelm me, haha.
I’m not tagging anyone in particular for this tag, but I am extending the offer to participate to anyone reading this! So, if you thought this looks like a fun thing to do, then play along. Your books are:
