[Book Tag Tuesdays] The BTS ‘BE’ Book Tag

Though I’m generally not a KPOP fan, I can appreciate the popularity of BTS and how they managed to break into the Western mainstream and really bring KPOP to the forefront. I was tagged by Laura @ The Corner of Laura (apologies for how late this is!).

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post.
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad (please credit if using these graphics!)
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag your friends or leave it open-ended!
  • Copy-paste these rules and list of prompts in your tag post (it should automatically pingback to the original so your post can be added to a masterlist!)

There’s been a great handful of awesome books, but Circe, which I listened to pretty early in 2020 still takes the cake and has found a coveted place as one of my all-time favourites! It’s a somber book and I’ve learned to appreciate it’s messages throughout 2020.

I wouldn’t say the concept of abusive queer relationships is new but we certainly don’t see that perspective enough in the “mainstream” queer media. I understand it’s out of fear that people will use these relationships to justify their queerphobia but at the same time, it’s so detrimental to queer people for them to feel like they need to stick with a bad relationship.

This graphic novel not only touches on generational trauma, but the affects of mental health within indigenous communities.

This manga is both light-hearted and hilarious! If you ever wanted to see an ex-yakuza perform house-husband duties with the same seriousness as he would have when shaking down citizens, this would be right up your alley.

The strong familiar bonds between Meerkat and her sister drive this short, but truly creepy novel–for better or worse.

This was such a cute graphic novel, and quite short, too! So I could see myself coming back to it for some comfort, like a warm blanket.

The yearning of Sebastian to live his true life and Frances to take her dressmaking worldwide was so palpable in this graphic novel and really pulled at your heartstrings.

I haven’t read this classic sci-fi novel, but check out this retro cover! Such a shame we moved away from these lovely illustrations for covers.


I tag you!
