Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you an original book tag! Something you probably don’t know about me is that I love to dance. I love to watch people dance too. So I decided, why not combine two things I love in one tag. Result- what you are about to read. Aside from tagging Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions, Sam @A Blast of Random and Bianca @The Ultimate Fan Girl, I tag any of you who want to do this tag, just link back so that I can read your answers. Hope you enjoy,
Ballet- A Classic
Ballet has been around for centuries and is still considered one of the most rigorous and beautiful dances in the world.
For this category, I picked Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. Firstly, because I really want to read it. Secondly, because the colour (the pink) reminds me of the colour of ballet shoes.
Tap- A Book With A Cover That is Black-Without-Red
Tap dancers, aside from their shiny metal toe caps and heels, typically wear black, which is the inspiration for this prompt. At the moment, I have seen a trend that black books often have red on them so for this section, find one without.
Abandon by Meg Cabot was one of the few black-without-red-books I could find. I also happen to love this retelling of the Seven Pomegranate Seeds myth. It is the first book in a trilogy.
Streetdance- Your Favourite Hyped Book
Streetdance, or hip-hop, is certainly one of the more popular dances in today’s society so let us pick a hyped book to go along with it.
Throne of Glass is most definitely hyped in the book community and I for one cannot get enough of it. I love it!
Modern- A Book With No Genre
Modern dance is a form of dance that mixes all sorts of different styles of dance together and doesn’t really fit in a specific category.
After I was finished reading The Salmon Who Dared to Leap Higher by Ahn Do-Hyun I had no idea how I would make it fit into a box, which is part of its charm.
Mime- A Book That is Not A Novel
Mime is as much acting as it is dancing- expressing yourself with your body. Therefore, I am including it here as a non-conventional element.
The Divine Comedy was a long read, to the extent that I listened to the majority of it as an audiobook which lasted 12 hours. The first section, Inferno is my favourite. This book is written entirely in verse.
Ballroom Dance- A book with multiple points of view
Ballroom dance is not a form of dance per se but rather an umbrella term for a style of dance including the waltz, the quickstep and the foxtrot among others.
Game of Thrones is known for its elaborate plot and multiple point of views, both of which give the plot character, depth and interest.
Folk- A Book with a LGBTQIA+ character
Folk dance explores the traditions and outlooks of a nation, or any group of people, and is something that one doesn’t see nearly enough of in the media. Similarly, LGBTQIA+ people are not represented enough, especially the latter part of the acronym. Pick a book with a character that identifies as such.
The main character in Parrotfish identifies as transgender. This is the only book I have that deals with the topic and therefore, I think this a very fitting pick for the prompt.
And that is it my friends! I hope you enjoyed, give it a go yourselves and let me know what you think!
