I’m a 90’s kid for sure so when I saw this tag I knew I’d have to do it. It was created by Ben Sanders, who is a booktuber. So for all the 90s babies out there, this one is for you….
FIND A BOOK THAT IS A NOSTALGIC READ.
I was never able to watch Rugrats because we didn’t have cable.
I have all sorts of books and Series I read as a kid that I get nostalgic about.
Three of my all time favorite authors when I was little were Bruce Coville, James Howe, and RL Stine. For Bruce I loved his Magic Shop series and INTO THE LAND OF THE UNICORNS. For James it was BUNNICULA and I now have a complete signed set that I treasure. And while I read a lot of Goosebumps as a kid, when it comes to RL Stine I think of Fear Street Cheerleaders.
FIND A BOOK ABOUT GROWING UP.
Jeremy Thatcher is a great story of growing and learning. At the beginning Jeremy is an artist with a crappy teacher and sort of stuck. By the end Jeremy learns to take responsibility for his actions, learns to let go, and be responsible. I love all the Magic Shop books but Jeremy is probably the best known.
FIND A BOOK WHOSE MAIN CHARACTER YOU DON’T LIKE.
The second Will in Will Grayson, Will Grayson. He’s the reason I never finished the book and probably never will.
FIND A BOOK WITH QUESTIONABLE HUMOR.
Captain Underpants! I loved those books so much. And the fact that my teachers despised them make them even more fun to read.
FIND A BOOK WITH A KICK-BUTT FEMALE LEAD.
Nostalgic book- Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley.
New book- From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORT-CENTERED BOOK SCENE?
I really don’t read books that involve sports so the closest I get is Crescent City, when Hunt is watching the Sun Ball games.
Or I guess Harry Potter’s Quidditch matches?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCI-FI BOOK?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. You want nostalgia? That book has some serious nostalgia to it.
And that’s the tag! Or perhaps “That’s all, Folks!” since we’re talking cartoons!
