I always meant to share my passion for Dawson’s Creek on the blog but didn’t know how. I own the complete series on DVD but I never attempted to watch it again because I’m afraid of being disappointed or finding my teenage dreams shattered. Well, I’ve decided to combine my love for Pacey Dawson’s Creek and books into this tag because I can’t write a post saying I’ve been watching DC again, can I?
A book you loved reading as a teenager
The Longest Day
A book that you read and read again
By the way: best episode ever written. ever.
A book that you loved on screen
Atonement by Ian McEwan blew me away. The narrative was brillant – a child sees things she thinks she understand (but doesn’t) and does something that utimately changes lives… I really liked the soundtrack and Kiera Knightley’s beautiful emerald dress in the movie. Romola Garai is also one of my favourite actresses so it helps make the film good to me.
A book featuring a love triangle
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald had me … shed a few tears. The fact that Gatsby is genuinely in love with Daisy and is ready to take the blame for her is terribly romantic.
I remember everything
A book that moved you
I adored The Help by Kathryn Stockett! I cried and laughed while reading it. It was so beautiful. It also made me crave fried chicken. So many feelings!
Put your shirt on
A book that you regret having started
A book that kept you up all night
I couldn’t put down The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins recently. Much like Gone Girl, I finished it in no time. The outcome was really good, I didn’t see it coming. I had my moments where I just felt for Rachel, I could totally identify with her distress.
I remember when I was in primary school, spending all night reading the Secret Garden by Frances H. Burnett. It felt so dangerous because I was afraid my parents would tell I wasn’t sleeping by seeing the light coming from under my bedroom door!
This was is difficult because I really enjoyed The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith and also, you know, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. I will cut the pear in half and just admit my eternal love for children books.
That’s it. I hope you liked this Pacey/Joey Dawson’s Creek themed book tag. I enjoyed it so much – it makes me want to watch the whole show again. I’m still scared but I’m craving it very badly. Watch this and you’ll understand why (grab a box of tissues first!) Also, isn’t it funny all the books I’ve listed in this post were adapted into movies? It’s a bit freaky…
