Quarantine Book Tag

Happy Friday everyone! I saw this tag over on Way Too Fantasy and it looked like so much fun. I’m a little late to the party, but I when am I not? This tag was originally created by Our Book Nook on YouTube!

Let’s get into the tag shall we??

MUST-HAVE

A book you *have* to have with you while quarantined?

This one is hard for me lol. I feel like there wasn’t a single book that I have to have, but I think I’m going to go with Ninth House. I know, I know I can *feel* the eyerolls from you all now. I’m always talking about this book and it’s getting annoying, but I feel like it just shows how much I *have* to have it during quarantine!

ISOLATION

A book where the MC spends most of their time in a book Alone?

I’m gonna go with a manga/book I haven’t really talked about, No Longer Human art by Junji Ito (original story written by Osamu Dazai). While the main character in this manga isn’t physically alone, he feels alone. There is not a single person he feels connected to. He moves through life miserable, looking for another person to understand him but he never does.

BINGE READ

A long book series youโ€™d recommend to someone who has a lot more time on there hands?

I’m going to say the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It’s not the best written, but man do I find it addicting. It’s like candy. Bite sized, sweet, and you know you need to brush your teeth but you just can’t stop shoving your hand into the box. Throne of Glass is 8 books of sugary candy!

TOILET ROLL

All the TP is gone! What are you using?

HAHA, I’ve never had an answer as quickly as I do for this question. I would hands down use A Separate Piece. There is not a single other book that I have ever encountered that I hate as much as that book. I’m deeply sorry if any of you enjoy it, but my hatred runs deep, deep enough to use the words for toilet paper.

ANTI-VIRAL

A book that went Viral that you have avoided or not read โ€ฆ yet?

A Little Life by Hanya Yanigahara. I told myself to stop avoiding it, it’s been on my shelf since like 2016 but it’s time to read it. Then quarantine happened. It’s a book brimming with suffering that I didn’t think I would be able to crawl myself out of the pit it will inevitably throw me into, so we’re still avoiding it.

That’s all for this tag! I’m not going to tag anybody specifically, just because I think it’s fun to see everybody’s responses. So if you want to do it, please do! Just be sure to tag me so I can see your responses ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I read the first question, A book you *have* to have with you while quarantined, and immediately thought of The Lord of the Rings. Did I read it during the lockdown? No. Do I have intentions to read it any time soon? Nope. It’s just my comfort book so I like having it nearby ๐Ÿ˜€ Or in my case, all 5 or so copies I have of it nearby ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Gotta have your comfort book with you!
        Oooh, just pick one copy…that’s a tough one! I’d probably pick my 16 year old paperback with a John Howe Gandalf painting on the cover – it’s not the prettiest edition I have but it’s the one I’ve read the most!

  2. This tag brings up some interesting ways to think about books! Hmmm, I think I’d probably have A Tale for the Time Being as my quarantine pick. Re-reading it has never gotten old, and it’s gotten me through some tough times.

    Toilet paper choice is harder, though there was an anthology of horribly written stories about cats that is the only book I’ve ever tossed.
