Big thanks to Megan @ PitchBlackSky for tagging me in the Book Sacrifice Tag!  Check out her post here → Megan’s Book Sacrifice Tag.  She really hit the nail on the head with her selections.

Time to sacrifice some books…

An Over-Hyped Book

Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?


Sorry Red Queen, it’s nothing personal.  It’s either me or you, and it isn’t going to be me.  To be honest, I don’t HATE you, I just think you aren’t worth the hype.  You didn’t have enough of an original plot line for me.  Victoria, you have potential, so I won’t rule you out in the future, but for now I’m going to use your book to shield myself from the undead…

My Review: The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

A Sequel

Situation: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?


Not that I particularly loved this series anyways, but I thought Twilight was a good story (note I said story, not book).  New Moon was just annoying.  The entire book was Bella in a depression over Edward leaving her… her entire world fell apart, even her will to live.  Not the best example for the millions of young girls who read this book… I understand her heart was broken, but get your shit together Bella.

A Classic

Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?

I legit don’t have one for this category… I’ve been pretty lucky in the fact that I’ve enjoyed all the classics that I’ve read thus far… I’m sure its only a matter of time though.

I am going to lay my skip card 🙂

A Least Favorite Book

Situation: Apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?


Ugh!  I demand a re-do for The Lovely Bones!  I loved the CONCEPT of this book, but the execution… not so much.  Shit just got too weird.  You know the part I am talking about…

Why Alice?  Why?!

I tag…. anyone who wants to participate 🙂  Or if you don’t want to create your own post, feel free to comment with your answers!

  1. Ooo this is such a clever tag, I love all the prompts, especially the witty comeback to the English teacher 😉 And, so interesting that you’ve liked all your classics so far! I think HS English turned me off to a lot of those unfortunately (like Shakespeare). Even though I do like all the classics I’ve read of my own initiative…

    1. I lucked out with the books I had to read in HS – The Hobbit, Jane Eyre, East of Eden, The Crucible, The Scarlett Letter, Lord of the Flies, Anima Farm, Macbeth, Beowolf, etc etc. I also had AMAZING teachers, which I think is a big part of it.

      1. Yes – probably the amazing teachers are quite important.. My reading list was very similar, and I still haven’t overcome my anxiety over Shakespeare or even Tolkien (who is supposed to be amazing! But every time I think of him I just imagine 5 paragraph essays and the torturous exercises from back then). Only one I appreciated was Orwell, because I had read him before.
