The Book Tag

If it has something to do with books, I can’t just ignore it (lol). So, I immediately post this tag here after my dear friend Fanda send it to me. It doesn’t have a particular picture but I decide to put one my own pictures just to make the post look brighter and colorful (I hope you don’t have a problem with that).

Well, the tag itself asks me to write the first 15 books I can remember when I receive this tag. Interesting! I have a lot of books popping from my brain right now. But if I must remember 15 of them, I think it will take an hour more (lol). So I just pick 8 of them. These 8 books are my favorite. Here they are:

1. The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff, since this is the newest book I have. The story is about polygamy in the year of 1875s. Great book!

2.Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz. About how the cruelest Roman Caesar, Nero, burn Rome capitol city for a silly reason and blame the Christians for it. Thousands of Christians were killed that time. This is a Noble Prize book.

3.Desert Children by Waris Dirie. I think women should read this book. It tells story about woman circumcision tradition on many tribes in Africa. This is a biography of a victim of that cruel tradition.

4.The Host by Stephenie Meyer. This is an alien story who wants to become a real human.

5.The Penguin Book of Ghost Stories. This is one of a few old books I have. Inside, you can find almost one hundred stories about ghosts. Some of them were based on true stories. Chilling.

6.Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. I’m a fan of Eragon stories. This is the last book published but I’m still waiting for the final book which is going to be published this year.

7.Empress Orchid by Anchee Min. A story about a female king a.k.a Empress who ruled China hundreds of years a go. A powerful woman from China.

8.Taj by Timeri N Murari. The story about amazing India hundreds of years a go, complete with the story of how Taj Mahal was built. An amazing love story with amazing love monument.

Well, should I tag this back to my other friends? Actually, I will tag you who read this post right now. Yes! You! Lol.. Especially my friend Jenie who has a big shelf of books on her blog. Come and grab it, my friends.
