90s Kid Book Tag

This is the best tag I have ever seen. I was born in 89′ so the 90’s are literally my entire childhood. I don’t think I’ve ever related to a tag this much before. Just a warning that this is probably going to be gif crazy so if that’s not your thing buckle up for a ride. I was tagged by Never Not Reading make sure you go check out their blog.

  1. Please, please, please steal this tag and spread it around!  I only ask that you link it back to The Literary Phoenix so that I can see everyone’s answers!
  2. Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s.  Tag someone (or many) you think would have fun with this!
  3. Have fun!

Gotta Catch ’em All! The author you need every book from.

There are a ton I’d love to buy but I don’t buy often. Stephen King is a big one we’re working on but also Dan Brown, VE Schwab, Shea Ernshaw, and Angie Thomas.

That book that you see referenced everywhere and is in everything, but that’s okay because it’s awesome.

Is there anything referenced more than Harry Potter at this point??

Heads Up Seven Up

A book where you peeked just REAL quick at the ending because you don’t like guessing games.

I don’t think I’ve ever peeked at the ending.

Your ideal bookish snack.

Honestly, eating while reading is a pain and I’m paranoid I’ll get something on the book the whole time. So if I’m eating and reading it’s something small like popcorn that doesn’t make a mess but I would rather not.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

A book that kept you up all night.

I haven’t read one yet. I should totally re-read these. It’s been so long I barely remember them.

Bill Nye the Science Guy

A book that taught you something new

The kids and I are obsessed with these types of books. The amount of people in them that I’ve never heard of amazes me. We are all learning when we read them and I love them.

I TAG everyone! Really, I’d love to see yours if you’ve done it or if you are doing it for the first time.

  1. HAH.

    I actually have nearly the same feelings about The Great Gatsby! I read it in high school, HATED IT, and last year I thought I was probably being dramatic so I tried it AGAIN and still nope. And somehow I still like the Bar Luhrmann film? #logic

    Your intro paragraph made me smile. I’m glad it resonated! 😉

  2. I knew Heads Up Seven Up as Heads up Thumbs Up and I don’t think we got Bill Nye in the UK but all these are such a blast from the past. This is a great tag and one I’ll have to keep on my radar!
