Happy saturday, friends! I hope you’re having an amazing day.
Ever since I first saw this tag on Ariel Bisset’s Youtube channel, I’ve been wanting to do it. Ariel is one of my favourite booktubers, and I love how original her content is and how much thought she puts in her videos, and this tag is no different.
The premise of this tag is that you’re creating a world of books, and you are the ruler of this world. What things are you going to implement?
So without further ado, here are my answers to the tag questions!
If you were the ruler of books…
I could go two ways with this one: a book that is just amazing and will get everyone into reading, or a book that will teach everyone some valuable lessons. Why not go with both?
I chose Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine for the ‘this will get everyone into reading’ category. This book is amazing! The characters are very diverse and all have their own distinct voice, and the setting is absolutely stunning.
For the ‘this will teach you some valuable lessons’ category, I chose The Rest Of Us Just Live Here. This is not the most exciting book you’ll ever read, but it deals with mental illness so beautifully, and just for that I want everyone to read it.
Again, I’m going to go with two answers here, with the first one being stickers on books. I HATE IT SO MUCH. I don’t care that this book is going to be a movie, I don’t think anyone cares, so just STOP DESTROYING THIS PRETTY COVER WITH A USELESS STICKER OKAY. Please. I would be okay with them putting a temporary sticker on a cover, but those ‘permanent’ stickers are just not okay.
Another thing I would abolish is the fact that they make books in so many sizes. I only own about 10 hardbacks, and they’re almost all a different size. I don’t get it, and it just doesn’t look good on my shelf, so I would make all paperbacks the same size, and all hardbacks the same size. That would save me from a lot of frustration.
I’ve never actually read this book, but I’ve heard enough to make me never want to see this book, or well, book series, ever again. And that series is the Fifty Shades series.
I’m not totally sure if she’d like to be though, but I think Iko and Thorne would happily volunteer for her.
