The Time and Place Book Tag

Thanks Icebreaker for tagging me for this tag! It’s a really unique one.

This tag was created by Jen Campbell


Pick ten books from your shelves that you associate with a specific time and place in your life. Tell us the story behind your choices and what the books are about.

Like Icebreaker, I’m a little lost as to whether this means an actual event, or just to compare. So like her, I’ll do either! And because I’m me, I’m gonna include Webtoons….why not?

On Writing, Stephen King:

This reminds me of whenever I am writing. Thes book has so much good advice, I feel like it’s a must read, whether you’re an author or not.

The Book Thief, Markus Zusak:

Weirdly enough, this makes me think of middle school. It was so popular back in my middle school, and unlike most people, I actually have fond memories of back then.

Annarasumanara, Ilkwon Ha:

This makes me think of the present. I’m in a similar situation to the students in this story, and I can relate to the pressures and struggles they face now. This should be required reading at schools, I think.

I Hunt Killers, Barry Lyga:

This gave me a similar vibe to one of my favorite Webtoons, Bastard. With the exception of the anime “Monster”, I’ve had problems finding a fantastic thriller. This helped me find that genre again. 

Dr. Frost, JongBeom Lee:

Similar to the above, I’d been searching for a great mystery story last year, and finally found one with this. This also introduced me to the world of Webtoons, and is still one of my favorites, if not my favorite.

One Of Us Is Lying, Karen M. McManus:

This was one of the first books I only saw on the blogging community, so it reminds me of you guys, actually. It reminds me of the time I decided to really start looking on the blogging community for new books to read, and it helped me get out of a reading slump.

Jackaby, William Ritter:

This reminds me of when I first started watching shows like Doctor Who. It just gives off this vibe, and makes me kind of nostalgic.

Harry Potter, J.K Rowling: 

These books, along with Disney and Ghibli movies, remind me of being a kid. Whenever I’m in the mod for feeling nostalgic, I’ll just read these and remember how scared they used to make me feel.

The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins:

This was one of the books to really get me interested in more adult fiction, rather than YA (even though I love both books). It also helped me realize just how important location is to an adaptation. Movie makers, take note: if you want to adapt something and move it to America…don’t. Just don’t, no matter what country the source material takes place in. It’ll lose something, no matter how similar the cultures are. (Cough, this book, cough, the Netflix Death Note adaptation, cough). 

The Melting Pot, by me 😅:

Don’t look at me like that. Please. Because I associate this with so much. Like November, two years ago, when I wrote it in one month for class. It reminds me of my favorite class ever, my creative writing class. Dang. That was an amazing class..

  1. Great answers! I knew you written a book but I didn’t know it was for class. (You probably mentioned it, but I just forgot. 😅) Thank you so much for the mention! Also I still need to read One of Us is Lying, but I’m pretty sure it’s on my TBR.

      1. Haha, I don’t finish my stories if they’re not projects either. 😅
        Oh! I didn’t know it had multiple POVs, I love those kinds of books. It makes my want to read it more! If I can find it, I will!

      2. Me too! I have to finish an anime called Shiki for my next post, but I’m getting lazy. 😅 Same with stories and art, I can’t finish anything nowadays.
        Next time I go I’ll look for it, or maybe in my library!
