I was about to go to sleep one night when I thought “I wonder if someone has created a music genre book tag”, and then proceeded to come up with questions. Turns out someone has (hence the volume 2), but I came up with completely different questions, and I still wanted to share my version. Books and music are my two loves; I like combining them. I included examples, which you do not need to do. I in no way own any of the linked videos. They are there to provide examples of music from the genres, and are not necessarily videos I approve of. I tried to find the official videos put out by the artists.
There are no “rules”, I would just appreciate the regular tag “things” (tag the creator (me), tag other people). If you don’t tag me or others, I really won’t get too worked up about it.
Celtic punk: Favourite Obscure Book/ A Book with a Non-Western Setting
With just over 2000 ratings on Goodreads, I’m counting Under Rose-Tainted Skies as obscure. It features fantastic mental illness representation, and you should definitely go read it and add to the number of people who have.
Classical: Favourite Classic/ Book that Should Become a Classic
My current favourite classic is Pride and Prejudice, but The Hate U Give deserves to become a classic way more than the internet needs me to gush about Pride and Prejudice. If you haven’t read The Hate U Give, drop whatever you are reading/ were going to read next and pick it up.
Soul/ RnB: A Powerful Book
As someone who lives a fairly sheltered life, this book about rape was shocking to me. It is such a powerful showcase of what society could be like.
Maybe not my favourite retelling, but Stitching Snow is an amazing Snow White retelling that isn’t talked about enough.
Soundtrack: Favourite Book to Movie Adaptation/ Adapted Book
If I Stay is one of the few movies that has made me cry.
Rock and Roll: An Action Packed Book
How can you not pick one of the Six of Crows book for this question. Unless of course you haven’t read the Six of Crows duology. If that’s the case, you should rectify that immediately.
Pop: A Book with a Pretty Cover that You Lost Interest In
I was all set to order this book, but then a reviewer whose opinion I trust gave it a bad review. I still love the cover, though.
Reggae: Favourite Seasonal Book
This is the only seasonal book I could think of, since I don’t associate genres with the seasons.
Country: A Historical Fiction Book That Wasn’t For You/ You Loved
One of the most fantastic historical fiction books I have ever read. I eagerly await the sequel.
