About a month ago Holly at Nut Free Nerd tagged me in this Jurassic Park book tag (sorry it’s taken so long!). I’ve never read the book and I can only really remember a few scenes from the movie but I do love the Universal park Jurassic Park section and the John Williams soundtrack! Here goes…
“Spared no expense.” ~John Hammond || A series that seems to go on forever.
I don’t really read series precisely because you have to invest so much time in them, but one of the books I’ve been recommended is Game of Thrones. The six or so sequels, and the fact that there are more to come put me off though!
“Life finds a way.” ~Ian Malcolm || A book with amazingly intricate world-building.
I can only really say Harry Potter. I don’t normally read fantasy but I’d just love to be part of the magical world.
“Hold on to your butts.” ~Arnold || What’s the fastest you’ve read a book, and what book was it?
I feel like I sound so negative, but I’m not a very fast reader! I think the quickest I remember reading a book recently was Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown, which I finished in 2 days.
“Mr Hammond, after careful consideration, I’ve decided not to endorse your park.” ~Alan Grant || A book you refuse to read (or finish).
I DNF quite a few books if I’m just not interested but I don’t think there are any books that I would flat out refuse to read.
“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” ~Ian Malcolm || A book that left you going ‘Why?’
This is quite a hard question for me – I don’t very often read books that ask deeper questions haha! But I always ask Why?!? when a character I love dies so I suppose One Day, or Order of the Phoenix, or Marley and Me… Why do these authors insist on killing off my favourite characters/ dogs?
“We need more teeth!” ~Gray Mitchell || A book with no human MCs.
I’m going to have to steal Nut Free Nerd’s answer and go with Animal Farm.
“The kids? This will give the parents nightmares.” ~Simon Masrani || A book that terrified you.
I don’t think I’ve read a book as an adult that terrified me, but some of the Goosebumps books used to freak me out as a kid!
“Monster is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We’re just used to being the cat.” ~Henry Wu || A book that changed your perceptions on an issue/culture, etc.
The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. A lot of people don’t like that book, and I’m much more central in politics than Jo is but it was an interesting take on the social issues in our country.
Thanks again to Holly for the tag – sorry it took so long but if anyone can tell me how to get a notification if someone tags me in their post I’d really appreciate it! It wasn’t until I checked my referrers that I knew I’d even been tagged.
If you haven’t done this tag, consider yourself tagged and have a go.
