The Sick Book Tag

So this is a ridiculously old tag, but I found it while searching for inspiration and thought it would be a cool idea for me to try. Ironically, I have actually just gotten over a nasty bout of tonsillitis, so it’s fitting that I am giving this tag a go. I found this tag here.

1. Diabetes – A book too sweet, like really sweet

The Rosie Project – Graeme Simsion

This isn’t too cute, but it made me so happy. This book is adorable and the sequel is just as sweet!

2. Chicken pox – A book you’ve read once and will never pick up again

The Angel Maker – Stefan Brijs

I am in two minds about this book. I hated it. It made me feel sick, and angry. But, I think that this makes it a good book. It was well written, but books are written to get a reaction out of people. Even though I didn’t react well, I reacted to it! Job done I guess … but I will NEVER read this book again.

3. Influenza – A contagious book that spreads like a virus

We Were Liars – E, Lockhart

Oh my god! Those twist and turns! I did not expect that ending. I would recommend this book to everyone.

4. The cycle – A book that you read every month, year or often

A Town Like Alice – Nevil Shute

This is not the first and will not be the last time I mention this book. I love it so much, I can read it over and over and it will never get old. I also love the movie version of this and that almost never happens (Harry Potter aside). On that note, I only like the black and white version of the film. The newer version lacks something. :/

5. Insomnia – A book that kept you up all night

What Belongs To You – Garth Greenwell

Read this book. Just read it.

6. Amnesia – A book that is forgotten and failed to leave a powerful impression in your memory 

Mortality – Christopher Hitchens

I think I enjoyed this when I read it, but I have no idea why. I can’t remember anything about it.

7. Asthma – A book that took your breath away


Timoleon Vieta Come Home – Dan Rhodes

This book was recommended to me by one of my previous managers at work and closest friends. This book is brilliant.

8. Malnutrition – A book that left food for thought

Unique, Different, Found – Violet Samuels

Meh … This book was in a word, just a bit naff. It was badly written, and juvenile. Maybe I’m just too old for it but … pfft.

9. Travel sickness – A book that took you on a journey through time and space 


Illuminae – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

This book was completely unique. The format and the plot. I loved everything about it. I’m just sad I have to wait for what may be an eon for the third instalment of the series. Sad times. Sad rimes are ahead.

Thank you for reading this!

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
