Nintendo Book Tag

I haven’t done one of these in a long time, so today I’m going to take part in the Nintendo Book Tag. This tag was created by Novels and Nonsense over on YouTube—you should really check out her channel, she has a lot of great videos. You can see the original tag video HERE

1. NES (Nintendo Entertainment System): A Classic you want to read

Just one? I don’t know, there are a lot of classics I want to read, but most recently I really want to pick up the novels for Jurassic Park and the complete Wizard of Oz series.

2. SNES (Super Nintendo): A Sequel you liked more than the 1st (can be a 2nd book in a series)

Wow, actually this is a difficult question for me. Usually it’s the opposite. Anyway, I have to go with Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep. Even though I loved the first one, the second one was just as good if not better.

3. Nintendo 64: A book that revolutionized the way you look at the world

It’s not one specific book that did it for me, but dozens of them that would take all day to list.

4. Gamecube: A popular book that did not go over so well with you

Oh boy, I can name a few of them—lots of them actually—but I’m just going to stick with one for today. And it’s going to be Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. It just wasn’t my kind of book.

5. Wii: A new favorite book

Finding Serendipity—it’s a middle grade novel that I read earlier this year—and I have to say that I absolutely loved it.

6. Nintendo Power: Favorite Graphic novel series or a series you want to start

I don’t read many graphic novels so for this one I’m going to go with one of my all-time favorite manga series: D. Gray-Man.

7. Super Mario: A Character that you'd love to squish like a Goomba

This is an easy one: Alcantara, a vampire from The Watchers series by Veronica Wolff. There are just so many reasons why I disliked him, mainly because of the things he did throughout the entire series. So he totally deserves to be squished like a Goomba.

8. Zelda: A newer fantasy that you consider to be a modern classic

I absolutely love Mistborn. The world building was fantastic and the overall story was entirely enjoyable.

9. Samas-Aran: Favorite Sci-fi novel or one you want to read

I would actually like to read Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (it’s just not out yet) and These Broken Stars also by Amie Kaufman with Meagan Spooner.

10. Pokemon: Book editions that you want to collect

All of the Barnes and Noble classic editions.

11. Donkey Kong: A book with original characters

For this one I’m going to go with Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius. The characters in the novel had very unique interests and habits that I’ve rarely seen.

12. Nintendo Fandom: Favorite Nintendo game(s) or game you really want

Mario Kart—I would also like a reboot of Double Dash because that game was a whole lot of fun.

Don’t forget to check out Novels and Nonsense on YouTube. And because this is such a fun one, I tag anyone who wants to participate. Happy reading!
