Today is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, so I’m reposting the tag I made for May the 4th Be With You day.
There aren’t really any rules of you want to do this tag, just tag me so I can read your answers!
So, without further ado:
Long ago in a galaxy far, far away….
I. The Phantom Menance: A book (or series) you pretend not to like but secretly do (guilty pleasure).
Percy Jackson and The Olympians by Rick Riodan. I’m an adult, these book are for children, I’m an adult, these books are for children…maybe if I keep telling myself that, I’ll one day believe it 😉
II. The Clone Wars: An emotionally powered YA novel.
Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler. I read this series in high school, and I finished it in 3 days, which is shocking for me because it’s close to 700 pages–I was totally captivated! I reread some of it a few years ago and I was cracking up because it was so emotional and drama filled, not at all like something I would like now.
III. The Revenge of the Sith: A Trilogy with a tragic end.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I really had a hard time with Mockingjay and the ending just devastated me.
IV. A New Hope: Your favorite classic.
I have so many favorite classics it’s really hard to choose, but for this one I’m going to say A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
V. The Empire Stikes Back: An action packed adventure.
The Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab. I haven’t yet read the third one, so this might be premature, but the first two are non-stop action!
VI. The Return of the Jedi: A trilogy with a wonderfully satisfying ending.
I’m gunna have to go with my favorite trilogy, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. This ending just feels right. You’ve gone on a long, hard journey full of suffering and doubt, but at the end there is peace.
VII. The Force Awakins: A new book that feels like an old friend.
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. Oh this book warmed my soul. It really felt like I was sitting down with a friend and having a nice long chat.
VIII. The Last Jedi: A sequel you can’t wait to read.
I don’t think she has a title for it yet, but I can’t wait to read the next book in the Ember in the Ashes series. I was delightfully surprised by how much I enjoyed this series.
Bonus: Rogue One: your favorite spinoff
I don’t read a lot of spinoffs, but I did read Finn by Jon Clinch, and I really enjoyed it. It is about Huckleberry Finn’s father and it is very interesting.
There you have it, kids, my first ever book tag! If you love Star Wars and love books, I would love for you to do this tag! Just remember to pingback to me or this post so I can see your answers!!
