The 90s Kid Book Tag

Hey guys, I have an AWESOME tag for you today! I am so excited about this one! I am doing The 90s Kid Book Tag. I’m a 90s baby so when I saw Amber over at The Literary Phoenix had made up a book tag for 90s kids, I was all over it! Definitely go check out her post as well!


THE RULES

  1. Please, please, please steal this tag and spread it around!  I only ask that you link it back to The Literary Phoenix so that I can see everyone’s answers!
  2. Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s.  Tag someone (or many) you think would have fun with this!
  3. Have fun!

POKEMON:

A GBA game and trading card game where you battled pocket monsters and strived to catch them all.  Back in the day, there were only 150 Pokemon.

The author you need every book from.

Stephen King! I am working on collecting all of his books! I have less than 20 left until I own all of his works!

AIM

AOL Instant Messaging – how 90s kids communicated with their friends after school before everyone had a cell phone.

Book that connected you with your best friend.

My best friend from high school and I bonded over The House of Night series and Twilight.

FURBY

Creepy needy robots you could teach to talk and were probably demon possessed.  Somehow these made a comeback?

Book that seemed like a good idea but was actually a monster.

Hmm..this is a hard one. There aren’t many books that I dislike. I guess I’ll have to go with Insurgent and Allegiant. I just didn’t like the sequels to Divergent.

N’SYNC

90s quintessential boy band. You may have heard of Justin Timberlake?

A book you hated to say Bye, Bye, Bye to.

Recently? Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh. I just loved this book and was actually sad when it was over. I can’t wait for the sequel!

SLIMED!

Getting green slime thrown on you, courtesy of the show Figure it Out.  Also apparently still a thing at the Kid’s Choice Awards?

A book everyone loved but you hated.

This is an easy one! The Fault in Our Stars. Now, I wouldn’t say I hated it, but I definitely didn’t love it as much as most people. It was just meh for me.

OREGON TRAIL

90s computer game you could usually play at school, which was great.  It taught us people used to die a lot of gruesome, messy deaths.

A book that made you wish you died of dysentery.

Beowulf. I know it’s not a book but an epic poem, but still. I had to read this in high school and I hated it so much. It was so dang boring.

MIXTAPE/CD

Back before everyone had music on their phones (remember, we didn’t have cell phones!) folks would rip their CDs and make mixes for each other.

3 books you recommend to anyone, anywhere, no matter what.

  1. Harry Potter 
  2. The Hunger Games
  3. Where the Red Fern Grows

DIAL-UP INTERNET

You know how it’s annoying when you aren’t on LTE?  IMAGING WAITING 10 MINUTES FOR INTERNET TO START AND ANOTHER 20 MINUTES FOR GOOGLE TO LOAD!

A book that took FOR FREAKING EVER to read.

I have two books for this answer. Both are over 1,000 pages and each took me about 2 weeks to read. IT and 11/22/63 by Stephen King.

KEENAN THOMPSON

He’s that guy who’s been on SNL forever.  Also Mighty Ducks.  Good Burger.  Keenan and Kel.  All That.  Everything.

That book that you see referenced everywhere and is in everything, but that’s okay because it’s awesome.

City of Bones. It has been years since it’s been published and it’s still talked about! I love it though, so it doesn’t bother me at all.

THUMBS UP, SEVEN UP

A game where most the class closed their eyes and seven people tapped someone’s thumb and you had to guess who did it without peeking.

Book where you peeked just REAL quick at the ending because you don’t like guessing games.

I didn’t peek at the end of the book, but I did a google search of a big part of the book series after watching the movie. The book series I’m talking about is The Mortal Instruments. If you’ve watched the movie or read the books, then you know what I’m talking about.

DUNKAROOS

These were basically just Teddy Grahams dipped in frosting, which is still a wonderful snack idea.

Your ideal bookish snack.

I don’t eat while reading, but I do like to drink water, coffee, or tea.

SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK

Collections of short stories that would scare any sensible kid!  Plus, there were illustrations…

A book that kept you up all night.

I don’t really get scared by books, but a book that I stayed up all night reading was Clockwork Princess. I just had to know how it ended. I also was bawling my eyes out for about 2 hours straight while reading it. It was not a book I could put down.

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY

Basically the coolest thing you got to do in science class was watch Bill Nye.  He has a Netflix show again!

A book that taught you something new.

Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold. This book was stuffed full of different facts about whales and the Yukon Gold Rush.


I TAG:

Ash

Jessica

Nicole

Jackie

Courtney

Erin

Sarah

I hope you guys enjoyed this tag! It brought back so many memories of my childhood! This was so much fun to write up!

  1. OMG YAY! I’m so excited you stole this. 😀

    I have soooo many Stephen King books, too! He’s so prolific, I’m sure there will be bunch more in the future for you to collect!!! Out of curiosity, what did you think about the miniseries adaptation of 11/22/63? I haven’t read the book, but I liked the mini-series. Is it worth reading the book still?

    I haven’t heard many good things about the Divergent sequels…eep.

    Wasn’t Reign of the Fallen so wonderful?! It really felt like the story was JUST beginning!!!

    Thanks again for doing this tag (and, omg, so quickly. It takes me MONTHS to get around to tags!!!) and I’m really glad you enjoyed it. 😀 I loved your answers!

    1. Oh my gosh, please, please, please read 11/22/63!! It’s my favorite book by SK and it was actually my number 1 book of 2017!! It’s so amazing. I liked the tv show, but the book totally blows it out of the water!!
      I had to do this tag as soon as I saw it!! I love anything that has to deal with the 90s! 😃
