Today I’m going to be doing the Sims Book Tag which was created by Hailey (click here to watch her original tag video). I’m a huge fan of the Sims (I used to play the Sims 3 all the time, but lately I’ve been addicted to the Sims 4), so I’m definitely excited to complete this tag!
1. The Original Sims: the best author debut
In the past year I’ve read so many amazing debut novels by a ton of different authors. So for this one I’m going to have to go with the latest author debut that I’ve read which is The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh. I read this book in a day and I absolutely adored it. I’m in desperate need of the sequel and am impatiently awaiting for my online order of the book to arrive soon.
2. The Grim Reaper: the saddest character death
Okay so I don’t want to spoil the ending of this book for anyone… therefore, I will simply say that I think we can all agree that the ending of Clockwork Princess was extremely sad and I may or may not have shed… numerous tears…
3. Sims Getting Stuck: a character that just got in the way
Haha. Ha. Ha. I think we ALL KNOW. WHICH CHARACTER GOT IN THE WAY. IN A Court of Mist and Fury. You all know who I’m talking about. *cough*Tamlin*cough* I actually really loved this character when I read ACOTAR but OH, HOW EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED. *rolls eyes because this character is just so UGH*
4. Simlish: a book with amazing writing
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a book that I recommend to anyone and everyone. The author’s writing is so witty and hilarious, while also maintaining a plot that includes some intensely deep and personal issues. I love this book so freaking much and the writing was amazing!
5. Expansion Packs: a series where the books kept on getting better
Okay, I think it’s obvious by now that my love for the Shatter Me series is outrageously huge. Tahereh Mafi is my favorite author of all-time and this series is just so… GAH, I don’t think I can put into words how much I adore this series. Each book is better than the last and Ignite Me is one of the best series endings that I’ve ever read.
6. Sims Romance: the worst case of insta love
While I did enjoy The Geography of You and Me, I thought that the love was extremely insta-lovey. I’m not completely picky when it comes to insta-love (it doesn’t bother me that much, mainly because I expect it when it comes to YA contemporaries), but this book was full of insta-love.
7. Cheats: a book that was entirely unrealistic
I adore the Hunger Games trilogy, but I couldn’t think of a book to pick for this one so I just went with the dystopian that I consider the most unrealistic, on the terms of me hoping that it is so unrealistic that it never happens for obvious reasons such as it being the freaking Hunger Games.
8. Needs Fulfillment: a character who made all the wrong decisions
Let me first say that I really love the Selection series. I really do. But holy cheese balls, America Singer got on my nerves SO MANY TIMES it’s unreal. There were numerous times when America would do something and I would just stare at my book and be like “Really. Really America. Really.”
9. Error Code 12: a series that started off great but went downhill from there
I loved Divergent and Insurgent so, so much. And then Allegiant happened and… I don’t know. It just didn’t give me that amazing-end-of-a-trilogy-satisfaction that I was hoping for. It wasn’t even the ending of the book, either, it was just where the plot went and what the characters did that made me not like it as much as I had hoped to.
10. The Sims Vortex: a book/series that completely engrossed you
Cassandra Clare and her amazing books captivated me as soon as I began reading City of Bones. Once I finished that book, I was HOOKED. I marathoned the entire series within the span of a few weeks. This series has become one of my favorites and it definitely engrossed me completely.
So, that’s the end of this tag! I really hope you all enjoyed this post and I’m hoping to post more book tag posts soon. Comment below and tell me what your favorite Sims game is (if you play it)!
