The Gif Book Tag

I’ve been tagged to join in with the Gif Book Tag fun by my good friend Stefani over at Caught Read Handed and the lovely Ashley from For the Love of the Page. Thank you, ladies!

The rules are simple:

  • Whoever tags you will give you a list of 10 books
  • Write a sentence and add a gif which shows how you feel about each one
  • Tag other bloggers and give them a new list of 10 books

Since Stefani and Ashley’s lists had quite a few duplicates (great minds think alike!) I’ve just combined the two and come up with 12 gifs. This was great fun!

1) The Maze Runner by James Dashner

I’ve heard some great things about this but for some reason there’s a vibe surrounding it that reminds me of Lauren Destefano’s Wither, which I hated, so I’m really conflicted about it.

2) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

The line “And in that moment I swear we were infinite” has stuck with me since I read this awesome jumble-of-emotions-coming-of-age novel.

3) Any or all of the Raven Cycle Books by Maggie Stiefvater

So many great sounding books; so little time.

4) It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

I’ve had this one on my TBR shelf for AGES and I’m really annoyed at myself that I haven’t gotten to it yet.

5) Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling

I think you all know the event I’m referring to here.

6) The Young Elites by Marie Lu

This book sounds AWESOME and I really want to read it!

7) The Walking Dead comics by Robert Kirkman

Zombies. I’m sorry. I just can’t.

8) Lola and the Boy Next Door/Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I’ve heard great things about these books so I might read them one day.

9) Allegiant by Veronica Roth

It’s my kind of genre and I enjoyed the Divergent movie, so I will probably read it at some point.

10) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Obviously this book made me sad but I found the ending really uplifting rather than depressing.

11) The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

I’m being buried alive in my TBR list and this series is in the pile somewhere near my head.

12) If I Stay by Gayle Foreman

I’ve hardly heard anything good about this book and the synopsis doesn’t sound that great so … nah.

This was so much fun so I don’t want to limit tagging to a short list of bloggers, so if any of you want to join in and create your own post then please do! I would love to see what you come up with for these books:

1) The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak

2) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

3) The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

4) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

5) S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst

6) Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

7) The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

8) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

9) The Humans by Matt Haig

10) One Day by David Nicholls

I’ve read quite a few of these posts and some people have commented that they don’t know how to include gifs in blog posts. I wasn’t sure either but it’s actually really easy. I found all mine at this site. Once you find one you want just click the share button underneath. Click the clipboard symbol to the right of the Gif option and then head back to your blog post. Click Add Media then Insert from URL and paste the link into the address bar. The gif should appear in the box below and can be inserted into the post.

  1. Your GIFs are awesome. Holy crap. Also, the one for Perks with Benedict Cumberbatch is perfection. I’m not going to lie, I really don’t think you’d like the Anna and the French Kiss books. I mean, obviously, feel free to read them, but I just have a feeling. However, I think you’d love the Raven Cycle books. They are incredible and full of magic.
    Also, I might have to do this again just so I can find GIFs for The Humans and S. Wonderful choices. 🙂

    • Thank you! This was probably the most fun post I’ve done here. I might have to do another one at some point, nominated or not! Ashley’s list included 5 books of my choice but that would have meant 17 in total for this one so I didn’t add in my own this time. I might just make one up with books I have strong feelings about. To be honest I feel like the Stephanie Perkins books probably aren’t my thing either, but I didn’t want to write them off completely!
      I would love to see your GIFs for those books! 🙂
