I really love 90s movies. I was born in the early 90s, so I wasn’t exactly of the right viewing age when they came out. I spent a lot of time catching up though. I’ve seen most of the films on this book tag, which I spotted on Kristen Kraves Books, and the rest are definitely on my must watch list.
She’s All That – Name a book couple that is an odd pairing but they still fit perfectly together
Maybe everyone else saw Ron and Hermione coming from the earlier books, but I was blindsided. I couldn’t argue with how well they fit together though. The perfect example of opposites attracting.
10 Things I Hate About You – A book/series you have a love/hate relationship with
I’m a little torn by Bridget Jones’ Diary. It’s such a funny read, and I adore Bridget and her family and friends entirely. But I get so peeved when Bridget moans about her weight, when she’s actually at a rather normal size.
Clueless – A character who is totally clueless but you love them anyway
It has to be Neville Longbottom. If your Grandma sends you a Remembrall and you still can’t remember what you’ve forgotten, you clearly have some memory problems.
Titanic – Name a book that made you cry
I don’t cry at books a lot, admittedly. I have a bit of a hard and cynical heart. There is one book that has reduced me to tears, and that’s The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I finished it one night before school at 2am and was a blubbering mess in my bed. (And, not the best of students the day after.)
American Pie – A book that makes you laugh
I love stand up comedy, and I read a lot of biographies by stand up comedians from across the UK and Ireland. By far, the best and funniest of them is Parsnips, Buttered by Joe Lycett. Anyone familiar with his comedy will be familiar with the multiple emails he sends. This book is a collection of them, and it makes for some side splitting reading.
Can’t Hardly Wait – A book with a crazy party
I doubt parties get more insane and intense than the one thrown by Jay Gatsby, do they?
Cruel Intentions – Name a character you can never fully trust
When Mia and Lana first waved the white flag in the later Princess Diaries books, I wasn’t so sure about it. I was rather skeptical about the friendship. But, having read Royal Wedding last year, I came to agree with it a little more.
Drive Me Crazy – Name your favourite “boy next door” or “girl next door” couple
I am obsessed with Lara Jean Song. I loved her with Peter Kavinsky throughout the whole series and I will probably continue to ship them for the rest of my life. Lara Jean seems to me like the perfect example of the girl next door. Honestly, we all deserve a friend who would rather stay home Friday night and perfect their cookie recipe to go out on the dance floor.
Scream – A book with a memorable villain
Will any of us ever forget Umbridge? Or her real life counterpart, that teacher we hated in school?
The Craft – Name a book with witches
I don’t read a lot of books with magic in them. The first book to come to mind for me was The Witches, one of Roald Dahl’s classics. It was a childhood favourite of mine, but unfortunately it never ignited a love of horror in my reading habits.
