Tag it Thursdays: ABBA

tagitthurs
Tag it Thursdays: I occasionally get tagged by fellow bloggers to complete various tags. Once a month I will post my response. Please, feel free to tag yourself if any of these tags interest you!

This month’s tag:

ABBA Tag

I was just 11 years old when my mom introduced me to the music of ABBA. We had just gone to see Mamma Mia and I loved it! To this day, I’ve seen is 3 glorious times and I count it as my favourite musical that is based on previously released songs (ie not an original score).

As for the movie…it was a bit of a miss for me. I love Meryl Streep but not as Donna. Otherwise, I enjoyed the casting and it was fun. I still watch it when I get a hankering for ABBA and sing all the songs.

When I read Ranu @ Araliya Bookshelf‘s post of this tag, I had to give it a shot. I’m glad she corrected the titles of the songs from the original tag because that is a little irksome. So, for those songs where the lyrics were misinterpreted, I’ve changed the tag to better suit what the song actually is about.

Beautiful Broken Promises (Broken Series Book 3)

Take A Chance On Me

A book you unexpectedly liked

After feeling underwhelmed by the first two books in the Broken Series, I almost didn’t pick this one up. But I’m so glad I did! It was amazing and completely unexpected!

The Winner Takes It All

An Overhyped Book

The Grisha Trilogy was such a disappointment for me. While I loved the concept, I did not love Alina nor the execution of this series.
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)
Violins of Autumn

Waterloo

An amazing historical fiction

I loved this one! Violins of Autumn takes place during WWII and focuses on one girl’s role in the war. It was an enthralling adventure!

Does Your Mother Know?

“A newly released novel you want to read”

The next line in the song is “does your mother know that you’re out” so I went with a newly released book I can’t WAIT to read. I eagerly awaited Starflight and adored it, so I am STOKED for the sequel, Starfall.
Starfall (Starflight #2)
The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)

I Have A Dream

A favourite, ‘ideal’ book

You can read my fangirl babbling of The Winner’s Trilogy in my review. But I loved this series for the political intrigue and the intelligent heroine. This book reminded me of why I love to read.

Dancing Queen

A book with royalty

Cross the Stars grabbed my attention because it focuses on the cultural and political issues revolving around an American girl and a Jordanian Royal.

Cross the Stars (Crossing Stars #1)
Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)

Money, Money, Money

A book you’d pay good money for.

The Red Rising Trilogy absolutely blew me away. It’s the next series I plan on purchasing for my collection.

Lay All Your Love On Me

A book that needs more attention

I don’t usually read YA contemporaries but Adorkable was AMAZING! I laughed, I cried and I most definitely swooned. It was perfect and it was Cookie O’Gorman’s debut!

Adorkable
Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)

Mamma Mia!

“A book that gave you a serious book hangover”

“Blue since the day we parted” That was the lyrical inspiration for this redo of the original tag. I waited for YEARs for Lady Midnight but it didn’t disappoint. When I finished it, I was so upset…I wanted it to go on forever.

S.O.S.

A book that should fall in trouble and never be rescued.

I don’t even think I got past chapter 2 for Until I Met You. I have never disliked a character as much and so soon as I had with this one.

Until I Met You
Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)

Knowing Me, Knowing You

A book that just wasn’t for you

I really wanted to like this book. I was excited to read another Western novel and I had heard great things about Walk on Earth a Stranger. But this novel was just too slow for me to fully appreciate it.

Man, I love that GIF 😛

  • This looks like a fun tag. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about The Red Rising Trilogy and although I am not much of a series reader, I’d like to read this particular series someday. I’ve also watched the Mamma Mia film a long time ago. The acting was not that memorable but it doesn’t matter because Abba songs are so catchy and really fun to see performed on-screen.

    • It’s a fabulous series! I highly recommend it!
      Have you ever seen the stage show? It’s a million times better than the movie!
