The Stranger Things booktag was created by Sarah Sunbeemz on Youtube. I saw this over at Pretty Deadly Reviews and thought it would be fun to do- after all Stranger Things right?
1) Epic Intro. The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page.
This one got my attention right away with the girl waking up with no memory after washing up on beach.
2) Dungeons & Dragons Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself.
Middle Earth all the way. I'll take a month or so at Rivendell, thank you very much.
And in case you want to wear Middle Earth- leggings!
3) Squad Goals When Eleven met Mike, Dustin and Lucas it was a *mostly* perfect team. Name your favorite bookish group of friends.
This is a toughie. The Fellowship comes to mind of course but I'm going with Night School. Allie, Zoe, Jo, Nicole, Rachel, Sylvain, Carter... they're a fun group.
4) ABC's and Christmas lights Joyce Byers goes mad with grief after Will goes missing. Name your favorite mentally unhinged character.
This one kinda made me realize I haven't read a lot of books focusing on mental health. I did like this one though for the portrayal of OCD with the protag's best friend.
5) The Upside Down Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected.
This one wasn't really what I was expecting. I mean I knew there was a missing girl but the actual layout of the story was a surprise to me.
6) Mad Scientists Dr. Brenner likes to get freaky with humanity. Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of.
Logan's Run. As bad as The Hunger Games or Divergent are, this society makes you submit to euthanasia at 21 (they changed it to 30 in the movie). Can you imagine that? Hey you can drink- congratulations. Okay report to Carousel now- you're outta here.
7) Demogorgon Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls.
Not a big fan of wraiths or anything I can't see.
8) Cliffhanger ending Name a book that left you wanting more.
This one ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and the authors don't plan another book at this time, although I hope we get one down the toad.
So... there you have it. Have you watched Stranger Things? I'm tagging anyone who wants to do this basically. So if you've seen the show (or even if you haven't), feel free to jump in! And if you have seen it, share your thoughts in the comments.
