TAG TIME!! 😀
Hello, everyone, and happy Wednesday! Two more days before we can finally have fun on the weekend. Any plans?
Today I’m posting The Sims Book Tag! Thanks, Azia @ The Uncharted Word for tagging me ❤ Everyone go check out her blog and I’M SO SORRY AZIA I didn’t comment on it back when you posted it but exams were keeping me busy (and mad!).
I have to admit I was never really into Sims. I mean, I remember playing it on a very, very old phone of mine, and maybe on a friend’s computer, but I never obsessed with it and I feel I skipped an important part of my childhood 😂 Looking back, however, I am glad I didn’t. I never had much patience to change my character’s appearance, and never knew exactly how to play! 😛
THE ORIGINAL SIMS: THE BEST AUTHOR DEBUT
I’m sure there are some better author debuts out there, but I can’t remember them (let’s blame my goldfish-like memory). Looking For Alaska was John Green’s first novel, and the only book of his I actually liked.
NEEDS FULFILLMENT: CHARACTER WHO MADE ALL THE WRONG DECISIONS
“Go right!”, she goes left kind of dumb decisions. Because there’s no other way to put it.
THE GRIM REAPER: SADDEST CHARACTER DEATH
I couldn’t decide between the two of them. I can’t say who dies, because of spoilers, but I can say this: they both hurt, but I was already expecting it in the first case, and I wouldn’t have it any other way in the second, honestly.
EXPANSION PACK: SERIES WHERE THE BOOKS JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER
I was very tempted to use Azia’s answer, because it’s true, but I could also use this trilogy by Lisa Glass. It gets better with each book as we see the main characters’ growth, not only as individuals, but also as a couple ^^
SIMS GETTING STUCK: CHARACTER THAT GOT IN THE WAY
I’m sure those of you who have read this, can understand 😉 (and even those who haven’t, the spoilers are everywhere seriously)
ERROR CODE 12: SERIES THAT STARTED WELL BUT WENT DOWNHILL
SIMLISH: A BOOK WITH AMAZING WRITING
As English is not my first language, I don’t usually pay much attention to it 😅 It’s more like do I understand? Is it clear and detailed enough? rather than Is it beautifully written? It’s something that I’m trying to get better at, though. After reading The Mortal Instruments series in Portuguese, reading The Infernal Devices trilogy in English was very much different, but very much better. I found out how much I prefer Cassie’s writing without being translated.
SIM ROMANCE: WORST CASE OF INSTA-LOVE
Honestly, that guy needs to chill. I’ve never seen a case so bad when it comes to a boy, but it didn’t make it any better. As a Prince, he used his position to get Giselle out of every trouble, and only because he fell for her as soon as he saw her?? Can’t believe it.
CHEATS: AN ENTIRELY UNREALISTIC BOOK
This book is so full of little clichés that, to be honest, wouldn’t happen in real life.
THE SIMS VORTEX: A BOOK/SERIES THAT COMPLETELY ENGROSSED YOU
All the clichés aside, The Selection is a pretty addictive series and I couldn’t put the books down. I might have read them all in 4 days
What about you? Were/Are you a fan of Sims? 🙂
