The School Subjects Book Tag

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And it's time for my monthly tag!
I wasn't tagged by anyone, but a blog (that I follow almost religiously) did this tag about a week ago, and I haven't done a tag so far this month, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity!
So here is the School Subjects Book Tag! (The blog was The Book Prophet, and you should check it out because Savannah is an incredible blogger).
So here's the tag! Enjoy!

The School Subjects Book Tag
1. Math: A book that left your head
spinning in circles
The first book that comes to mind is 1984, because the whole thing is just a mind game. It's super complicated and mysterious, and I love the secret rebellion that's going on behind the scenes, but the reason I've chosen it is because the scientific side of it is so immense.  

2. English: A book you think has
beautiful written expression  
I'll Give You The Sun is another book that was the first one to pop in my head. It centres around two twins, Noah and Jude, and three years ago they had this super special bond, and then something happened that changed that. One perspective takes place three years ago, and one is taking place now. And there's beautiful artwork and wonderful writing, so that is why I picked it for this one.

3. Physics: Your favourite scientifically
minded character from a book or film
Beetee, for sure! There's just no-one else I can think of.  

4. Chemistry: Your favourite literary
This is so hard! How do I choose one?
Okay, even though there are a ton of couples that I love, (I'm not going to pick one, you can't make me. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME) I'm going to go with Luna and Neville because it's that couple that you don't realise until the end that are perfect for each-other, but once you get on board, there's no way you can get off that train (Hunger Games reference :) ).
So I'm going to pick those two, because they're just adorable.

5. Biology: Your favourite book/series/film
Again, I can't choose!
Can I just do a list of some of my favourite characters and why?
  • Tanith Low, from Skulduggery Pleasant- because she isn't just a kick-ass, ready for anything, can run on walls action woman- she's like a big sister to Valkyrie, even after certain events that I won't talk about because I want you to read the series :).
  • Professor McGonagall- I don't have a specific reason why she's on this list, but she just stands out for being awesome, and as well as being strict, she is also fair and kind-hearted. And she came into her own in the final battle against Voldemort. And she has a cat animagus, and I love cats!
  • Dr Lysander from the Slated trilogy- This character is so curious, but also kind and trusting, and even though she is working with Kyla and should probably not get as close to her as she does in the trilogy, she tries to help her as much as she can, because she is curious to the case that Kyla has presented her with, and that is why I love her so much.
  • And finally, Haymitch- this man purely needs no reason as to why he's one of my favourite, and I am not going to say, because if you haven't read Hunger Games, please pick them up, and if you have read them, you should know why he's my favourite.

6. French: Your favourite foreign
book/film/ program
I'm going to go with The Book Thief because it's set in Germany, and I truly believe that it is a book that everyone should read, not just the readers it was written for.

7. Art: Have you ever judged a book by it's
cover, even if you weren't meant to?
Oh, I do this all the time. I mean, I don't seek out books that I think would look good on my bookshelf, because some of the reason why I pick up a book is because I have a good amount of interest in what it's about. But if a book has a beautiful cover, than that makes a huge difference!
But for this one, I think I'll pick The Dream Thieves, by Maggie Steifvater! The cover just blows me away, I finished this yesterday, and there will be a review up soon!

8. History: The last historical book
you've read
The last historical fiction book I read was Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys! I have a full review up somewhere on my blog, and you can read it here.

9. Geography: A literary destination you
would really like to visit (real or
Other than Hogwarts? Narnia, probably! Because they're both so beautiful!

10. Drama: A book that you think has a lot
of over dramatic hype
Hate to say this, but... I'm gonna have to go with The Mortal Instruments. Yes, they were released years ago, and yes Cassandra Clare's books have got better again and again and again, and I did enjoy them, but the first three which everyone seemed to love just didn't do it for me for some reason!
I am going to read The Infernal Devices later this year (definitely), and hopefully I will love that as much as the rest of the world does!

So that was The School Subjects Book Tag! I hope you enjoyed it, and feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
