Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’re all going into the weekend content and relaxed. I spent some time last week enjoying the wonderful Spring weather. Seeing all the flowers pop up makes me so happy!
Anyway, I was tagged to do the Piano Playlist Tag by Yasmin from Despedida1992.blogspot.com! Thanks for the tag! A fun fact is that I actually play piano, so having a bookish piano tag to do is actually quite perfect. The tag was created by Moi from Bookish Blunders! Here are the rules for this tag:piano piano
– Post the rules in your post
– Answer all the questions and if you’ve never heard any of the songs, listen to them before you answer the questions.
– Link the creator and the person who nominated you.
– Nominate 8 people.
– Use the featured image made by Moi! (using it in my post, because it won’t fit as a featured image lol)
And with that, let’s get to answering the questions!
Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata: A book you read that had an unexpected plot twist near the end
By Juliet Marillier
I love plot twists and am entirely disappointed when a book lacks one. There are many books that came to mind when I read this question, but this one had a twist that made me audibly go “OH.” Also, if you like reading about ancient Ireland and are also done with 18-year-old protagonists, this is your series. The MC is oldish, and there is no romance, either.
Lizst – La Campanella: A book you couldn’t even finish
The Way of Kings
By Brandon Sanderson
So it’s not like I’m not enjoying this book. Technically I’m still reading it and I have no plans to DNF it, because I really liked what I was reading, but the book is just so long. I can’t deal. I will probably buy the two-book edition to trick myself into thinking I’m reading two books instead of one.
Rimsky-Korsakov – Flight of the Bumblebee: A book that was crazy and chaotic that you couldn’t even figure out what was happening
House of Earth and Blood
By Sarah J. Maas
So, I can’t recall a book that was confusing from start to finish. But this one had me confused for at least the first 50 to 100 pages. There’s world building, and there’s slow world building, and this one definitely fell on the slow side. Thankfully I came out on the other side knowing as much as I can about the world, so even if it was slow, at least the world building was solid.
Mozart – Rondo Alla Turca: A book that is so over-recommended that everyone and their grandma has read it (it’s still good, though)
By Brandon Sanderson
This is a hard question for me, because I have no clue which books are over-recommended. So instead, I went with the one I literally always recommend, which is the Mistborn trilogy of course. I can’t remember ever not recommending it to old readers and new readers. When I still worked at Barnes & Noble, I always held one in my hands and my goal was to sell it that day. Most of the time I did.
Beethoven – Für Elise: A book that has been one of your favourites for ages
By Richelle Mead
So I could answer Mistborn again, but I don’t want to repeat myself, so I’ll go with Vampire Academy. Even though I’ve yet to reread it, I love this series so much. It’s one of the few series I actually binge-read, and stayed up for way past bedtime. As a side note, I loved the Bloodlines series, too.
Chopin – Fantaisie-Impromptu: A book that is high up on your to be read list
Chain of Iron
By Cassandra Clare
Lol which book isn’t. But if I’m being real honest with myself… Despite having a large physical TBR… I’m gonna say Chain of Iron. Which isn’t out yet. But, I know that as soon as it is, I’m going to order it and ignore my TBR in favor of that book. And I know I’m not the only one! Don’t lie to yourself. I mean, how can you not want to read this book ASAP after the ending of Chain of Gold??
Beethoven – Sonata No. 17 “Tempest” 3rd Movement: A book that you love but isn’t that well-known
Touched by an Alien
By Gini Koch
I’m going to assume that this series isn’t well known, because I’ve literally never seen anyone post about it. If you’ve read and liked it, let me know? So the first book is just okay. It’s fun enough, but also a little too cheesy for me. But the series as a whole is just really good. There are so many likable characters, and the plot is really well thought out and goes very deep. You might want to take notes, or else you won’t be able to keep up!
Mozart – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik: A book that is extremely long, but you still like it
The Empire of Gold
By S.A. Chakraborty
This isn’t the longest book I’ve ever read, but it is the one that’s both really long and really good. I love it when books are super big, but you don’t really notice because you’re just completely immersed in the world and having a good time. I’m sad this series is over, but I heard (dreamed?) that Chakraborty is writing a new book set in the same world?
Debussy – Clair De Lune: A book that was wonderful from start to finish
Strange the Dreamer
By Laini Taylor
I don’t think I’ve ever done a book tag in which I didn’t mention Strange the Dreamer. I got sucked in this book from the first page, and never let me go. It still hasn’t let me go lol. The world is so whimsical, I wish I could jump into the book and live in Weep forever!piano
