你好你好！它是一个很长时间since i did一本书标签, but given that i just reread泰坦的诅咒andit’s the percy’s birthday this month… i wanted to (finally) do the percy jackson book tag! putting together this blog post made me want to reread all the PJO books all over again.
- link to the original creator,may @ forever and everly（又名我最喜欢的书博主之一!!!!）请注意，她做了的插图/图形that i’m using
- match books with the given prompts.
- tag however many people as wanted!
i haven’t read many five star books this year (or books at all, for that matter), but i’m choosing:Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, by Cathy Park Hong。i read it at a perfect time (aka when the hype of anti-racism and blm was going on) and i LOVED IT. it made me want to study culture and talk about race, being asian, and all things related. i’d highly recommend to any asian american, anyone who wants to understand asian americans, or anyone interested in race and culture.
okay, ihaveto chooseThe Poppy War, by R.F. Kuang！最近，我完成了我的第三次读它，它仍然让我!!!!!!!!!每一次！！！！！！！！！目前，我正在重读龙共和国，它是那么那么那么好; - ;当我记得笔者只比我大了几年我很喜欢????? !!!怎么样？？？与她写在她的间隔年？并且它的天才????！无论如何，阅读罂粟战争。
也许它不是在炒作，但我不知道还有谁读过这本书。这可能是因为我通常与那些谁读YA VS散文集关联BUT：太多了，没了心情，通过杜尔加咀嚼玻是我的最爱之一!!!!它使我想写或者成为一个作家？我甚至命名my animal crossing islandafter an essay in the book?? it’s not a book i’d constantly reread, but it really captures the beauty of literature – in its messy and wonderful way.
i rarely ever read books i think i’d hate. because why WHY would i subject myself to that?? but sometimes i read them because i’m curious, likeThe Wicked King, by Holly Black。我没有enjoy The Cruel Prince, but everyone was telling me “READ THE WICKED KING” so i caved and read it. i binged it in a day then immediately read Queen of Nothing via audiobookthenimmediately bought a signed copy of Queen of Nothing because i wanted to reread it in physical form. needless to say, i really liked the books.
although if you ask me now, i have no idea what they’re about.
The Diviners, by Libba Bray！！i read it not too long ago, but i think i already read the books three times,,, every time i finish the books, i want to reread them all over again. 1920s NYC with ghosts and diviners??? BIG FAN. there’s a huge cast of characters and the relationship between memphis and his brother isaiah is one of my favorites in literary history!! sibling relationships are often under-hyped but i love them ;-;
this series is also under-hyped please read it
i think this is meant for positive books where ~you couldn’t stop reading~ but i’m saving it for a book i couldn’t wait to get through:Loveboat，台北，阿比盖尔兴文。i had really high hopes going into this book, but unfortunately all of them were crushed. all i can say is that i thought i would love it but it turns out i couldn’t wait to for it to stop. i originally tried reading the hardcover, but ended up switching to the audiobook because i couldn’t keep going. (at least with the audiobook i could multi-task,,) anyway, biggest disappointment of 2020.
我觉得像Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo，是每个人的去到REC但也my去到REC所以...是啊。我喜欢它。每个人都喜欢它。它绝对值得所有它得到的炒作，我可以重读一遍又一遍。如果你haven’tread it… what are you waiting for? diverse cast, brilliant plot, and THIEVES.
这可能是最难的提示，但我终于决定：龟龟一路下跌，由约翰·格林。it’s one of my favorite books of all-time
maybethefavorite book of all-time。i know whenever i want to ~ feel things ~ and question life, i can turn to TATWD feel hopeful again. it’s incredibly multilayered book so i know i’ll find something new with each reread.
我准备为释放The Burning God通过重读罂粟战争系列，我既害怕又兴奋。我听说很多人提到它是多么的痛苦和美好，所以我很兴奋，并,,,说实话没有准备好。我有一个EARC但不想开始，直到我完成我重读。我也都特别想等待它的有声读物版本，因为这是如何我在看其他的书，但是......我们将拭目以待。无论哪种方式，我知道这本书将我摧毁。
for this, i’m choosing:These Violent Delights, by Chloe Gong！我是kiiinda作弊，因为我有这本书的EARC，我可以技术上read it already BUT i’m half tempted to wait until the physical/audiobook release because i don’t want the format to affect my review. (i almost never read ebooks) it’s been at the top of my TBR ever since i heard the pitch: Romeo & Juliet in 1920s Shanghai. as a shangahinese person, i’m SCREECHING. i’ve never read any books set in shanghai so i’m truly ;——;
this is reaaaaally old but凡人仪器，通过卡桑德拉克莱尔！i read it pre-blogger days, and definitely judged the cover. but if it hadn’t been fortiffany @ readbytiffany‘s insistence, i probably wouldn’t have picked it up. and initially, i denied my enjoyment because i didn’t want to admit she was right (lmao). but!! the shadowhunter world has become one of my favorite literary worlds ever so… shoutout to tiffany for forcing me to read it :’)
我们都知道Percy Jacksonhas the funniest banter so i had to choose it for this (despite wanting to give it to some other prompts). the scene in The Titan’s Curse with the dam snack bar… gets me every time. and the chapter titles!! and percy in general! and LEO in general!! i love these books and i know i can count on them to make my day brighter.
这个提示是完美的，因为我目前参与nostalgiathon和重读我所有的喜爱！但我必须选择：The Clique, by Lisi Harrison。一会儿我拒绝享受这些书 - 即使他们总结出了我的前青少年年。阅读YA后，我确信他们是“太小家子气”，并充满了肤浅的戏剧。但我来条款与我过去的自己和......这些书*chef’s kiss*。我重读漫画和rewatched电影;虽然是它是超小和是they’re literally 12, massie block is still my childhood idol and i love her.
所以我最近完成了一个小生命，由柳原樱和还是让我说...这本书是如此的残酷。开始之前，我就知道这将是一个艰难的书获得通过 - 的人告诉我在阅读它,,,他们呜咽量 - 但我没有预料到的how硬。这可能是我读过的最痛苦的书籍之一。虽然这是很好的，我不能看到自己推荐它没有强调所有触发警告：当中许多许多强奸，虐待儿童，抑郁，自杀，饮食失调，精神虐待，身体虐待。
无论如何，这不是一本书，每个人都hatesbut a lot of people think it’s好的while i, on the other hand, love it to pieces. which is:The Way You Make Me Feel, by Maurene Goo。it’s one of my favorite books because of LA and the romance, but i know a lot of my friends didn’t love it as much as i did. which is understandable! clara is annoying at times; the plot is a little wonky; but i still love it.
i generally wouldn’t punch any book unless 1) the author is really problematic or 2) the book itself is really problematic BUTEnter Title Here, by Rahul Kanakia, is one of the worst books i’ve ever read. i completely forgot i read it
和它的存在but goodreads is useful sometimes。i don’t want to summarize it because i don’t remember it but它真的不值得你的时间。字符意味着是一个反英雄（我认为），但她最终很可怕。当我完成它，只是希望我能得到我的时间回来，我不明白这本书的目的。
在我的愚见，最好的文学浪漫的配方包括：缓慢燃烧，焦虑和力量，防止被一起人物。虽然这绝对不是onlyromance i like, i realize these tropes just make me *clenches fist*。我已经提到,他们可以适用于书ed (echm PJO and Six of Crows) but i’ll be choosing the original heartbreaker:The Infernal Devices, by Cassandra Clare。there’s nothing like a love triangle where you literally root for all parties involved.
i tag… anyone who loves percy jackson & wants to do this tag!
