I wasn’t tagged but that was not going to stop me from doing a tag about my main man! I saw this tag on Heather’s blog The Sassy Book Geek! I love that she has given me an excuse to post pictures of Leo!
1.) Growing Pains – A book you read before it was popular (or hyped-up)
I read The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants because it was recommended to me by a bookstore owner when it was first released! I was so happy when the book became popular because my young self loved it so much!
2.) Tobey Maguire – Your favorite book best friends
Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley of course!
3.) Kate Winslet – Your OTP
I hate to be repetitive but I am not someone who really has OTP’s- Elizabeth and Darcy are the one exception. I love them so much!
4.) Titanic – A book that made you cry or emotionally distressed
I really could have gone with any WWII book here because they always break my heart but I settled on The Book Thief because it still stirs up emotions inside me when I think about it.
5.) Martin Scorsese – An author you will always buy their books no matter what
There are not many authors like this for me! I did write a post on my auto-buy authors! Mitch Albom, Khalid Hosseini, and Lisa Genova were on that list. I have recently added Jandy Nelson to that list as well. She is such an incredible author!
6.) Victoria’s Secret Models – A genre you will always go back to
Historical fiction! I used to read historical fiction almost exclusively but I have started to branch out a lot more. However, historical fiction will always be my happy place and my comfort zone.
7.) Happy Meme Leo – A character that makes you smile
There are so many but I have to go with Ove from A Man Called Ove! He is so charming and hilarious even though he puts up a front that he is grumpy.
8.) Every Leo Character – Your favorite complex characters
This was a tricky one! I am going to say Gatsby from Great Gatsby! Not only do I love the character and all his complexity but he is also played by Leo!
9.) Leonardo NoOSCARo (but now he does!) – A book that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves!
Swimming Lessons only has abouy 8,500 reviews on goodreads and an average rating of 3.63! I rated this book 5 stars! I absolutely loved it. If you liked slow paced, character driven family dramas than I think you would love this book.
This is such a fun tag so I tag anyone who also loves Leonardo DiCaprio to do this tag!
I think I have seen the majority of his movies and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all. I would love to know which of his movies is your favourite! For me it is between Romeo and Juliet and The Departed!
