Ah, van vesua! Cummuns nala. Bloo Bagoo. Hooba Noobie ♡
I’ve been obsessed with playing Sims since Sims 1 when all the Sims were still block shaped people. Since then Sims has really evolved and I still go through stages when I’ll play the game non-stop for like a week straight! I spotted this fun tag on May’s blog — Sunsets and Bookfests and it was originally created by Booktuber Hailey from Hailey in Bookland.
♡ The Original Sims – The best author debut.
There are so many wonderful author debuts out there! But for this I’m choosing All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. It is impossible to believe that this is Niven’s debut novel – the plot and character development is absolutely amazing and the writing is just so good!
♡ The Grim Reaper – Saddest character death.
*potential spoilers for Harry Potter*
Dumbledore’s death gets me every single time. No matter how many times I’ve read/seen Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince I always cry.
P.S: This happens with all Harry Potter character deaths.
♡ Sims Getting Stuck – A character that just got in the way.
Even though she was the main character of the novel, I felt like America Singer from The Selection Series just got in the way. She just made selfish and stupid mistakes and overall I just didn’t like her.
♡ Simlish – A book with amazing writing.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The prose of that book is absolutely delightful and I love it.
♡ Expansion Packs – A series where the books keep on getting better.
I adore the DIMILY trilogy by Estelle Maskame. You can definitely see how she improves as a writer throughout the three books as well as how the plot and character development gets stronger. Definitely a series that I would recommend to everyone.
♡ Sim Romance – The worst case of insta-love.
The Sun Is Also A Star features the worst case of insta-love that I’ve ever read about, but in this book it actually worked. It was cute and the connection between the two characters felt real.
♡ Cheats – A book that was entirely unrealistic.
One Was Lost by Natalie D. Richards had a very unrealistic plot. The events that occurred together with the actions of the characters just didn’t do it for me and it felt a bit unrealistic.
♡ Needs Fulfillment – A character who made all the wrong decisions.
Neville Longbottom from The Harry Potter Series. He made so many wrong decisions that got him into so much trouble, but he is still one of the best characters of the entire series!
♡ Error Code 12 – A series that started off great but went downhill from there.
I really liked Divergent at the beginning of the novel, but towards the end I was getting a bit bored with everything. And then the first time when I tried reading Insurgent I actually ended up DNFing it – so I totally think that this just got worse novel by novel.
♡ The Sims Vortex – A book/series that completely engrossed you.
This series is absolutely mind blowingly good! Once I started with book one I couldn’t put it down until I finished book three. Definitely worth a read!
