So if you’ve been around for a little while, you probably know I love Bollywood movies, especially ones that involve Shah Rukh Khan. So a few days ago, I was talking to one of my best friends in real life who blogs over @ Empire of Starlight and we decided to create our own Bollywood book tags. Check out her Bollywood Book Tag: Song Edition (she doesn’t post often so it’s kind of a miracle when she does).
Anyway, on to my very own, Bollywood Book Tag – SRK Edition.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – Favorite Classic
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Lizzie Bennett is the perfect protagonist, she’s smart and witty and always unapologetically herself.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – Favorite Romance
I am not big into romance? But out of the few I’ve read, I’d definitely have to pick The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. Natasha and Daniel are a great pair and I was rooting for them from the first chapter.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham – Great in All Aspects
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Need I say more? Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom are both wonderful beyond wonderful books and have ruined YA Fantasy for me.
Kal Ho Naa Ho – Favorite Love Triangle
Obviously The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. Will, Jem and Tessa are the ultimate love triangle. All three of them love and care for each other. I love their individual relationships as well as them as a group.
Chak De India – Favorite Girl Power Book
YA is pretty good at publishing girl power books so there are lots to choose from. I’m going to say An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I think this series is very good at highlighting all the ways a girl can be powerful. Helene is a trained fighter, Laia is more patient and intelligent, the Commandant is ruthless and unforgiving, Izzy is kind and loyal.
Dilwale – Biggest Disappointment
I’ve had quite a few disappointments, especially from book that are superhyped but I didn’t end up liking. But there are two books that have disappointed me beyond measure: Allegiant by Veronica Roth and Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. I expected so much more from the ending of both of those series but alas, it didn’t work out.
Main Hoon Na – Favorite Action Book
A recent favorite would be A Gathering of Shadows by V.E Schwab. I love, love LOVE magical duels and sword fights, especially magical dueling contests.
My Name is Khan – Favorite Controversial Book
A book that covers a controversial topic is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas which talks about the Black Lives Matter campaign. THUG is probably the best book I’ve read all year and I encourage everyone to read it if you haven’t already.
