The 80’s Movie Book Tag

When J.R. Lynn tagged me do The 80’s Movie Book Tag I was super excited! I LOVE 80’s movies. Actually, I think I just watched Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club right when she tagged me for this. Thanks so much for the tag! Her blog has some new designs so I recommend going to check out the cuteness.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

A book that kept you up all night:

Paper Princess (The Royals, #1)

There are more than one choice for this but I will go with a classic of mine, Paper Princess.

The Princess Bride

A wonderfully quotable book:


I have so many quotes highlighted from Heartless.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

A character who loves breaking the rules:

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

Rhysand from ACOTAR is the definition of a character who loves breaking the rules.

When Harry Met Sally

A book couple that took an eternity to get together:

Pride and Prejudice

Majority of us knows that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth seriously took FOREVER to actually get together in Pride and Prejudice.

Back to the Future

A book involving time travel:

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #2)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series has some pretty awesome time traveling events.

Pretty in Pink

A character with a unique style:

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

Delilah Bard from ADSOM is for sure unique in every way.

The Karate Kid

Favorite book involving training/mentoring trope:

Olympian Challenger

Olympian Challenger revolves around training and mentoring for a huge tournament.

Die Hard

A book with a trip that doesn’t go to plan:

Love Songs & Other Lies

The tour isn’t what Virginia or Cam expected it to be at all in LS&OL.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

A book with the central characters name in the title

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)

The whole Lunar Chronicles has the main characters name as the title.

Dirty Dancing

A female character who comes out of her shell

Turtles All the Way Down

Aza from Turtles All the Way Down has to come out of her shell (OCD) to investigate but also try to have a relationship.

Top Gun

A death that took you by surprise

Looking for Alaska

No spoilers, but let’s just say I died along with the character in Looking for Alaska.


An ending that left you both happy and sad

It Only Happens in the Movies

I am still not over It Only Happens in the Movies.

I Tag:

Hollie | Rebecca | Ashley | You!

    This tag looks like so much fun! I’ll probably give it a try! I love your answers, especially for “When Harry Met Sally” and “ET” (I’m still not over that ending, either!)
