Hi again! I enjoyed creating the School Subjects Tag a few months ago, so thought I’d give it another go with a brand new (hopefully) tag! I love listicles (a post that mixes an article with a list form) so I thought, why not create a listicle tag! I really hope this is an original idea, but if it’s not, let me know! So, the rules of the tag are…
- Create your own listicle tag, using the prompt from the person who tagged you.
- Tag the creator of the post (not-so-modern-girl!) so that I can read all your brilliant posts and see how the joy of listicles is being spread.
- Nominate as many people as you want!
- Set those 5 people the subject/prompt of their listicle post!
So, my listicle is going to be about my 5 favourite comfort reads… (my list is in no particular order!)
1. ‘Carry On’ by Rainbow Rowell
I love this book because of it’s romance and the sheer beauty of that romance is just brilliant, I just can’t get over Baz and Simon <3. I also love the character of Baz, which makes it the best book to turn to when I need something light, funny and cute.
2. ‘I’d Tell You I Love You but then I’d have to Kill You’ by Ally Carter
The Gallagher Girls series is just full of fun and clichés, and I love them. I picked this one because I love the title and it was the first I read, but the whole series is brilliant.
3. ‘Eleanor and Park’ by Rainbow Rowell
‘Eleanor and Park’ is a great read, and it just mixes brilliant romance and fun scenes. I know I’ve included two Rowell books, but this is my tag right? I can do what I want 😉 .
4. ‘Jamaica Inn’ by Daphne Du Maurier
This one may be set in the past, but it’s super short, which always makes for a brill comfort read, and I think the characters (particularly Mary and Jem) are so realistic that I can’t help but love them.
5. ‘The Bees’ by Laline Paull
This is a dystopian novel, which follows the life of a bee. Sounds bizarre (and it is a little!) but the way Paull tells the story really makes the reader see this as not just a bee in a hive, but a person in a society. It can be a bit gruesome at points, but overall I would say it’s a great comfort read as it’s easy and quick, as well as full of action.
So there you go, those are my 5 favourite comfort reads. For those people that I’m nominating, use the listicle prompt ‘Top 5 Favourite Female Characters.’
I’m sorry if this seems like a bit of a confusing idea for a tag, but the basic premise is that those who do the tag use the prompt set by the person who tagged them, then they set a listicle prompt for the people they tag, and so on. I thought it was a great way to spread the listicle love :).
