the Feelings Matter book tag

Hello, my fellow book lovers! This Sunday, I’ll be doing the Feelings Matter book tag. I love doing book tags, even though those don’t receive as much as love as my other posts and the answers are often predictable. Anyway, let’s get started!

question_1

upside of unrequited.pngMaybe not exactly confident, but The Upside of Unrequited made me feel so many positive things! Though Molly and I aren’t completely alike, I related to her very much. This book and Becky Albertalli have a very special place in my heart. The Upside of Unrequited is so positive and fluffy, it makes me feel as if everything is going to be okay.

question_2

the hate u giveAs a white person, I will and can never fully understand how different a black person’s live can be from mine, especially in the USA. But The Hate U Give gave me a very good idea of what it must be like. My heart bleeds whenever I read about the injustice that’s being done to them and unfortunately, I don’t see that chance anytime soon, considering who the current president is…

question_3.png

we are the ants.pngWe Are the Ants is one of my favourite books, but it was also a very hard novel to read. It deals with multiple serious topics such as suicide, depression, bullying and sexual assault. If you’re interested in reading this novel, I’d suggest reading my review, because We Are the Ants includes material that could be very triggering.

question_4

the boy in the striped pyjamas.pngThe Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a highly popular novel, but I honestly don’t understand its purpose. The ignorance in this book annoyed me to no end. Though this is set during World War II near a concentration camp, Bruno, the main character, remains ignorant throughout the entire novel. It bothers me that this story is told from the point of view of someone who is privileged. To make things worse, he never even realizes how lucky he is. You can read my full review here.

question_5.png

the raven king.pngI’ve mentioned this numerous times already: The Raven King didn’t live up to my expectations. Throughout the entire series, there’s so much foreshadowing and build-up, yet The Raven King is so different from the other books. Some of the characters weren’t treated the way they should’ve and the plot was all over the place and overall disappointing.

question_6

gemina.pngI didn’t finish Gemina for several reasons, one being the sci-fi elements. I don’t read this genre often (or ever) and it had been over a year since I read Illuminae, the first instalment in this series. I had no idea what was going on, so I decided to put it down. You can read my full review here.

question_7.png

queens of geek.pngQueens of Geek made me feel satisfied because it was such a perfect novel. It gave me everything it promised it would be: fluff, cuteness and diversity! I really want to read more books like it.

question_8.png

how to make a wish.pngGrace, the main character in How To Make a Wish, is bisexual and her relationship with her mother that is far from perfect. Therefore, I could really relate to her. Unfortunately, I didn’t adore this novel as much as I had hoped, but I will re-read this and I know I will love it more the second time around. I blame my busy schedule.

I also plan on picking up Blake’s other novel, because that one sounds very relatable to me as well.


Those were all the questions! If you want to do the Feelings Matter book tag, consider yourself tagged by me.

    I agree with your thoughts on The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. The inaccuracies, ignorance and misunderstandings based on English annoy the Hell (sorry if this word bothers you) out of me.
