FIFA World Cup Book Tag!! | Because this is Literally the Only Thing I Am Watching on T.V. for the Next Month.

Greetings readers!

It’s that time of year! The only time when I truly and actually care about sports. (Besides the Olympics of course) It’s the FIFA World Cup Tournament!

Soccer–or more correctly put–football runs in my family’s veins. My grandfather was head coach to his city team back home and now my uncle is the team medic. My cousins play on little leagues for the city and even made it so far that they got to travel to Spain and compete there! I played soccer when I was young and joined a little league myself. We won the championship and it was quite fun, although I am bitter to this day that I never scored a single goal.

At this time of year, my family gathers around any TV we can find. We cheer and we yell (yes, at the T.V.). We celebrate and get upset, but mostly we just like to have fun watching and laughing together.

Even though my countries almost never make it to compete (Canada and El Salvador), I still have fun cheering on other Latin American countries, and if they all get eliminated, Spain. XD

SO I decided to come up with a tag to celebrate this tournament! Even if you’re not that big of a sports fan, all the prompts have bookish themes so I’m sure you’ll find some answers!!

Rules!

  • Link back to this post so I can read all your wonderful answers!
  • Answer the questions the best that you can!
  • Tag a few friends at the end to keep this tag going!
  •  Have fun!

Time for kick off!!!

The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes

While Mexico is next to the last team I usually root for…I am really excited for this book! I have always wanted to see Mayan mythology used in books and this sounds like an excellent start!

It’s The Beautiful Game

Football! Soccer! Beautiful! Whatever you call it!
A book with a pretty cover / A book that features soccer

The Star-Touched Queen and A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi. Just Stunning!

Face paint! Big signs! Lots of noise!
Name a fandom you love being a part of!

Oh wow. Really all of them. TLC. Narnia. SoC.

However, I’m going to give a big shout-out to the AEITA fandom. The Emberlings! This fandom is so funny and beautiful! The fanart is amazing and the people are just as fabulous! We could always use more people, so feel free to read the books, fall in love and join in on the fun!

Teamwork! Teamwork! Teamwork!

There is no way one person can win the game!
Name your Favourite Bookish Crew / A Book that has Co-Authors!

Ref Blows the Whistle

You either love him or you hate him.
Name a book/character that you mixed feelings towards!

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

This book was really beautiful both inside and out. (Seriously have you seen the cover??) But I had major issues with some of the characters and how the romance played out. I was not in agreement with how it ended up being and I was just not for it. I still get a little angry when I think about it, otherwise it was a really good book!

I have many many coveted books, I mean, my Narnia bind-up, TLC, my signed books…especially my signed Marie Lu books!!!! But the one book I have that is loved to the point that I bent it, doggy-eared it, left in little tags and highlighted it is….

The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy  by Jeanne Birdsall

I love this book that much.

  1. Awesome tag! It looks like so much fun!! I can’t wait to do this! My country never competes (Dominican Republic is more into baseball than soccer) but I love cheering for all the Lantin countries! Also Germany, I don’t know why but I’m a big fan of the Germans!

    • Yay! Thank you! At least the DR has a sport they are genuinely good at! Canada and El Salvador never compete bc they genuinely suck at soccer! XD I feel like Germany will go far in this one, I hope you enjoy watching the games!! XD

  2. This was amazinggggggggggggg. LOVED IT RENDZ. You were so creative, and I can’t wait to tackle these prompts myself. Just so much fun. 😀 I will admit that I’m not a big football fan. DON’T HATE ME. I just like watching the Olympics, since I have a short attention span, and I just want to see peeps win little circles of gold. But hopefully your team(s) win!!!! ❤

    • Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!
      The cute little prompt titles came faster than the actual prompts so this post took a little while XD! I get it, the Olympics is far more entertaining cuz little gold circles are won every five minutes, and soccer players can be such babies. But I do get to sit in front of my tv watching cute men run in short shorts….so I don’t always complain XP I can’t wait to see your answers!
