I’m doing a tag in so long yayyyy…!!
Hey Pals!! So, today I’m doing The Functions Book Tag! I was tagged for this by the
evi amazing Naemi, who also happens to be the creator, probably the first person to bring Maths in relation to books, which I think is pretty awesome! So anyway, let’s get started!!
- Thank the person who nominated you!
- Ping-back to the original creator, Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner, so that she can sneakily read your answers and be thrilled at how much attention math is getting within the bookish community!
- Answer all the prompts while appreciating the mathematical beauty contained in them! (You’re more than welcome to use the original graphics so that all the canva and GeoGebra work the creator put into them will be worth it…)
- Tag some people! Five would be best, since five is obviously the coolest natural number out there, but any other quantity works, too.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.
Whether this book is good or bad will remain a never ending debate. Personally, I found it meh. The ending was terrifying though it was a cheap shot because it was very unrelated to anything that was happening and just seemed to be there to shock everybody. Still, it grabbed my attention. But apart from that, the rest of the book was boring.
I guess Divergent by Veronica Roth…and yeah, I have an unpopular opinion where I say I loved the ending. People hate it but I think that it was a nice little twist.
The first book is my favourite in the entire trilogy, but Insurgent and the majority of Allegiant didn’t have much happening. Had it not been for the characters and the amazing narration I would have been bored out of my mind.
Secret Seven by Enid Blyton. This was the first book that got me into reading novels. But I had started reading other stuff since long before then. Like there are these Hindi comic book things like Champak, Billu, Pinki, Chacha Chaudhary…I used to read them from a very young age too 😂. Aah, those were the days *cries*
I will choose A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’engle.
This book is just so freaking weird, I can’t believe it’s gotten so hyped because it is just dumb. Sure, it’s great if you’re reading it as a beginner and have no idea whatsoever about the greatness of actual sci-fi books. But apart from that, it was very all over the place and the characters were all one dimensional. And the plot, what was that 😭?! The book had so much potential but it just didn’t work.
Can we first just appreciate the fact how I’m actually answering a trigonometric prompt instead of evilly not using it even though trigonometry almost managed to be the death of me?! Can we, can we?!!
Yep, we can.
I choose The House of Hades by Rick Riordan.
I’ll never be over the amazingness of this book. How it made me laugh so bad and then also tore my heart at so many places. From having some of the best moments of all characters in the entire series, to having the darkest moments as well as the best humor, this book just tops all of Rick Riordan’s other writings.
Bold of you to assume I would read such a book, much less allow it to pollute my memory 🙂.
However, if you’re talking about pie as in the one we eat and not the one that has a monstrously large number of terms after the decimal point, then I can choose…
Nope, still dunno any book that has pies in it, edible or not.
Like Naemi, I’m not a fan of footnotes either. Thankfully, I haven’t read too many books that had footnotes in them.
The one that I have read is Whichwood by Taherah Mafi.
But that was a pretty great book, so no worries there. It’s not as famous as her other books but it really should be since it’s really nice…I realise this is the point where you might expect me to go on to describe the greatness of the book and what struck me as the crucial thing for it be so good, but you’ll have to cut me some slack here because my therapist here (aka my ghost) thinks I should hurry and get back to more important tasks like you know, ideally lying down and wasting time.
Hehe, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix probably. Also, since I’ve read The Kite Runner I guess that’s pretty close too but I feel like I owe Harry Potter more than The Kite Runner. So yup, there’s that.
I hate logs 😭. Mainly because I feel like I haven’t mastered them properly. But anyway, you don’t need to hear my sorry tales.
A book featuring journal entries is ahem, Diary of a Wimpy Kid 😂.
Yup, count on me to go from talking about intense books like The House of Hades to talking about Wimpy Kid. But I mean…it’s a great series okay? Not all its books are good but most of them are, and they provide a nice change from reading high fantasy and the like.
Oh, like every single classic out there? Lol.
I’ll be choosing The Well of Ascension for this one, the second book in the Mistborn trilogy. You see, I devoured the first book and fell head over heels 👠 in love with it. But it was just so freaking huge, and so so intense. And I bet the next two books are gonna be even more intense. I really wanna read it but it’s the kind of story that really impacts how my mood is and I’m not ready for it to do that yet. I don’t think I’ll be able to study at all once I start reading it.
I’ll just be rereading the final book in the Magnus Chase trilogy- The Ship of the Dead, as of now. I’ve already read it twice but I’m not looking for something too addicting, and these books are my comfort reads. So, I’ll read this hehe.
I tag (no pressure, guys):
- Sanjivani @ The Diary of a Bookish Mind

Ps- Evil me skipped one of the prompts. Naemi, I hope you don’t mind 👀. I didn’t have an answer for that one so I had to.
