Today, I will be doing the Fellowship of the Ring Book Tag! Thank you to the lovely Fiona @ Fi’s Bibliofiles for tagging me. If you haven’t already, check out her wonderful blog!
The Fellowship …
Gandalf – A book that taught you something
As most of you know, Van Gogh is one of my biggest inspirations, so naturally I have a lot of knowledge about him, but Van Gogh’s Ear by Bernadette Murphy taught me so much more than I already knew, especially the time surrounding the incident of him cutting off part of his own ear. This book is a fascinating read!
Frodo – A book that left a mark on you
I will continue to talk about this book until the end of time! The feeling of loss, and the emotional pain that so many people had to go through after the war is something that most of us will never understand, but The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott does a fantastic job of making it that little bit easier to understand. This book is so emotional, thought provoking, and written so perfectly!
Legolas – A book you finished in one sitting
It is very rare that I finish a book in one sitting, mainly because having a 3 year old running around makes it impossible to do, but I finished The Last Bear by Hannah Gold extremely quickly. This book is absolutely fantastic, and has a very important message behind it.
Gimli – A book that features an unlikely friendship
It’s probably cheating to use The Lord of the Rings for an answer on this tag, but come on, just LOOK at this fellowship… is there a more unlikely friendship than this bunch? I doubt it!
Merry – A book that pleasantly surprised you
I had high expectations for Our Bloody Pearl before I even started it, but this book was so much more than I could ever have expected! I urge everyone to read this book.
Pippin – A book that made you laugh
I’ve read Why Mummy Drinks and Why Mummy Swears of the Why Mummy series so far, and both had me laughing out loud, but Why Mummy Drinks (book 1 of the series) had me laughing continuously from beginning to end!
Boromir – A book/series that you think ended too soon
I genuinely can’t think of any… There are probably loads, but none that I can think of off the top of my head. I can think of quite a few that I am waiting on sequels to though!
Sam – A book with memorable side characters who stole the show
I don’t know if they really count as side characters considering how important they are to the story, but for me, the Hawthorne brothers stole the show in The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I liked Avery, but she just didn’t have that memorable flare that the boys did!
Aragorn – A good book with a bad/average cover
Let’s be honest, the cover for Killer Domes and the Chosen One by Gibbo Gibbs isn’t exactly the best… But, I actually thoroughly enjoyed this book, even though it was completely out of my comfort one. It really surprised me, and is much better than the cover would suggest!
Gollum – A book that had great potential but disappointed you in the end
Sorry Agatha Christie fans, but Murder on the Orient Express was ultimately a massive disappointment for me. The actually idea of a murder on a train, and no-one being about to leave is great, but the potential was wasted, and the book was just so slow, and actually pretty boring.
