Haven’t seen The Greatest Showman yet? What are you waiting for! While not an accurate portrayal of Barnum’s life, the film was an easy watch and the songs super addictive! They’re just so catchy! I was tagged by Rosie to do The Greatest Showman Tag and apply some books to the songs!
The Greatest Show – The greatest book you have ever read:
I think that this changes every time I do a tag post like this…which is so inconsistent! I’m going to say A Darker Shade of Magic purely because it’s the greatest thing I’ve read so far, and it’s rare that a book series has left me so exhilarated and excited after reading just one instalment.
A Million Dreams – A book that left you dreaming after you finished it:
Six Of Crows. Like seriously, I was having dreams about this book while I was reading it, let alone after finishing it. It’s so stressful but so GOOD!!
Come Alive – A book where a character finally accept themselves:
Simon Spier! Love, Simon (or Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda) is coming out in cinemas here soon and I can’t wait to see Simon’s self acceptance on the big screen. It was so nice to read it in the book and was wonderful to see him transform.
The Other Side – A character who changes your opinion of them:
Sirius Black! All through Prisoner of Azkaban, you’re led to believe that he’s a dangerous killer and he’s out to get Harry to finish Voldemort’s job. It turns out that none of that is true, and the next few books prove how loving Sirius is and wants to be part of Harry’s life.
Never Enough – An author/series you could never get enough of:
V.E. Schwab! My goodness I could just devour book after book of hers. They are stunningly crafted works of art, and I would encourage everyone to read any of her books.
This Is Me – A book you love despite everyone hating it:
I don’t actually think I’ve loved a book that everyone hates. I’ve certainly hated a book everyone loved though…
Rewrite The Stars – A bookish OTP that overcame a lot to finally be together:
Kaz Brekker and Inej Ghafa. Seriously, Kaz has a lot of trust issues, PTSD and triggers, and Inej has been separated from her family and sold to a brothel when he first finds her. They overcome so much just to be able to share intimacy and tenderness, and it warms my heart when they do!
Tightrope – A book/series that gives you trust issues:
Saga – honestly, who can you trust in this series? There’s so much war going on and usually there’s a fair bit of backstabbing and sabotage! I just want the main characters to be happy, not to be ripped apart!
From Now On – A book you’ve ignored for SO long, you need to read it ASAP:
That’ll be Orangeboy. It’s terrible, it’s been on my shelf for over a year now and I still haven’t got around to reading it. I feel so awful having not read it, but it’s still on my TBR to do so this year.
I’m tagging Abbey because I know she absolutely adored The Greatest Showman! If you’re reading this and want to join in, I tag you also!
