Sick/Ill Book Tag

1. Diabetes: A book to sweet, like really sweet
 
          I'm not sure if this question means a book I did not enjoy because it was too romantic, but I really enjoy those kinds of books, so instead I will list a book I really loved that was very romantic! For that I have to go with My life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick! This one of my all time favorite contemporary and book in general. The romance was perfectly sweet and I couldn't stop reading. I fell in love with the characters just as they fell in love with each other.

2. Chicken Pox: A book you've read once and will never pick up again.

          After thinking long and hard about this I have decided to go with The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Now this book was good. That is all. The story had so much more potential. I found the main character boring as well as the story. Although things somewhat picked up at the end I didn't feel the need to pick up the sequel.

3. Influenza: the flu, a contagious book that spreads like a virus.

           This was a hard choice but I have to go with Divergent by Veronica Roth. I really loved this book but it seems like everyone read it at the same time. I think many people only read it to fit in.

4. The cycle: a book you read every month or year.

            First, this isn't an illness. But, I choose The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I was really obsesses with this series for a long time. I would say I have read it at least 15 times. I am also not ashamed because this could possibly be my favorite book.

5. Insomnia: a book that kept you up all night.

             I could choose a number of books for this. I have to go with the most recent one which is Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I literally read this in one night immediately after I finished Obsidian. It has became one of my favorite series.

6. Amnesia: a book that failed to leave an impression.

              This book has to be The Maze Runner again.

7. Asthma: A book that took your breathe away.

               Slammed by Colleen Hoover. This book was perfect to me. I had so many emotions throughout the story. If you haven't read it yet I recommend you do it now!

8. Malnutrition: A book that lacked food or thought.

               I honestly don't have an answer for this.

9. Travel sickness: A Book that took you on a journey.

               The lovely Mortal Instruments Series is my answer. I had so much fun reading these books. It feels that I have taken an adventure with the characters.

I hope you enjoyed this tag! I tag everyone because I had so much fun answering the questions.

Weekly Wrap-Up!

     This is my first weekly wrap-up! This week I have read a total of two books! The first book I read was Obsidian (The Lux Series #1) By Jennifer L. Armentrout. I really enjoyed this book and I will have a review up soon! The second book I read was of course Onyx (The Lux Series #2) By Jennifer L. Armentrout. I loved this book! It was in my opinion better than the first book. These two books have recently been published into a bind-up of the first two books in the series called Lux Beginnings. This brings my weekly page count to 800 pages. I am currently reading Opal, the third book in the series. I am on page 234 of 382.

Total page count: 1034 pages.
