Kpop Book Tag: Blogmas Day 10
Hello readers! Welcome to Blogmas day 10. Happy Hannukah for those who celebrate Today we are doing the Kpop Book Tag. This tag was created by Under the Book Cover. I have been wanting to bring Kpop to my blog for a long time, but I didn't really know how. I have been listening to Kpop since early 2019. I can't remember if I listened to BTS or Blackpink first, but I think it was Blackpink. Please comment down below and let me know what your favorite Kpop group is, if you do listen! Mine is Ateez, personally.

Red Velvet- Peek-a-Boo: Name a book that surprised you with how much you loved it
Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust. I read this book because of a book club on Twitter. I didn't really know what it was about, and I didn't really expect to love it as much as I did. However, it is one of my favs now.
Twice- TT: A book that makes you cry
Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe. I read this on in 2019. It is a true story about a girl called Dita Kraus, who was from Czech Republic, and is still alive today, living in Israel today. She was taken to Auschwitz in Poland, along with her parents, and all other Jews, at the age of nine. She had a secret library, underneath the floor of another person, where all the books are kept. Everyone who has managed to bring a book, has left if with her, no matter the language. Those books are still on display at Auschwitz today. It wasn't the entire story that made me cry, it was the ending. I can't say why, because of spoilers. This book is categorized as YA, but I can say it is VERY hard to read. I do not recommend it unless you are fully prepared for it.
Twice- Cheer Up: A book that makes you happy
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. This book does touch on some hard topics, but I loved every minute of it. I loved that this story was about amazing friendships. I really hope to reread this book in 2021, because I loved it so much. Aled is one of my favorite characters of all time, and I love to see friendship in books over relationships.
Itzy- Dalla Dalla: A debut author you instantly fell in love with
June Hur. Hur is a Korean author, which I read Silence of Bones by during Koreadathon this year. It was my first time ever participating. I loved that Hur managed to sprinkle in so much about Korea while writing this book. I would recommend her book if you like mystery novels, even if you don't like historical fiction, like myself.
BTS (Steve Aoki)- Mic Drop: Your favorite author duo
P.C. and Kristen Cast. These two authors are a mother/daughter duo. I haven't read anything of Kristen Cast outside of their collaboration books, but both of these authors were dear to me from my teenage years, and I still love reading what they put out.
Agust D- Agust D: A book by your favorite author that you recommend to everyone
I would recommend anything by Alex Gino. Alex Gino is a VERY underrated non-binary middle grade author. I love all of their books.
You Don't Know Everything, Jilly P! is about a girl named Jilly whose baby sister is born deaf. She tries to embrace it, and she starts to learn sign language, and the rest of the family, and the doctor, try to suppress her deafness, and look for a cure. The problem is, Jilly doesn't think she is broken to begin with, so she doesn't need to be 'fixed'. She also has biracial aunts, and there is a lot of talk about racism within her family as well.
George is about a child who knows they are a girl are on the inside, but is a boy on the outside. It is really a kind of coming out story about a trans child. It really gets you in the feels every time someone uses the word 'he' to describe the MC.
Rick is Gino's newest novel. Rick is the best friend of the bully of the MC in George. It takes place two years after George, and is about a boy who is just trying to figure it all out.
BTS- Anpanman: A book with your favorite hero/heroine (or villain!)
Luc from Invisible Life of Addie Larue by Victoria Schwab. I am not sure why, but I struggled with this question. However, I did recently read Addie Larue and I think Luc is a really good character because he is so charming, yet evil. I would have loved to see more of his character in the book, and I know a lot of other people feel the same way.
2NE1- Ugly: A book that first got you into reading
Lisey's Story by Stephen King. I know I have mentioned this before somewhere. I only got into reading because of Stephen King. I loved horror movies from a young age and I started reading his books because I saw the movie for Misery, which is an adaptation of one of his books. I have loved reading ever since, and I truly hated it as a child.
Blackpink- Playing With Fire: A book you love that others don't/ your favorite unpopular book
Platform Seven by Louise Doughty. This was one of the first books for the Literally Dead Book Club. I remember that we got to vote for the book, and I was not happy that this one was the winner, but I ended up reading it anyways. I really loved this book, and was not met with a popular opinion. This book is one of the most poorly received of the year out of all the choices. However, I thought it was really good. I need to buy myself a copy.
BTS- War of Hormone: A book you read while growing up that stuck with you as an adult
The Giver by Lois Lowry. I switched schools a few times when I was young, and every single one I switched to, had me reading this book. This book is the OG dystopian/utopian novel. I can honestly say this book has the best movie adaptation I have ever seen. They somehow captured this book so well. I actually read the sequel to it this year called Gathering Blue, and I HATED it. I don't know if I will read the rest of the series, but The Giver will always have a special place in my heart.
K/DA- Pop/Stars: A book you enjoyed by an author that wrote outside of their usual genre
I think Stephen King is the master of this. He has written a book in most genres. Some of my favs would be 11/22/63, which is a sci-fi involving time travel and The Gunslinger, which is a kind of sci-fi fantasy series. I really love his non-fiction book as well called Secret Windows. However, I will say that book does spoil the end of Cujo, if you haven't read it, which I hadn't at the time. I don't recommend reading anything in King's fiction books that isn't the story, like a foreword, cos he is not afraid to spoil his own books.
4Minute- Crazy: Oldie but a goodie
I am going to pick a classic novel for this one being Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. Les Mis was my last book of 2019, and I didn't really expect to love it, but I did. It follows Jean Val Jean for most of his life. There are a few parts of the book, and each part has a time jump. The ending was a bit predictable, but it still got me right in the feels anyway.
Girls Generation (SNSD)- I Got A Boy: Your favorite bookish couple (or friendship!)
I think one of my favorite bookish friendships is from Radio Silence. Frances and Aled were in a friendship that all of us can only dream of being in. A close second would be one that most people have not heard of in the book community being Zoey and Stevie Rae from House of Night series by P.C. and Kristen Cast. The House of Night series has its flaws, but I loved it as a teen, and it will always be one of my favs.
