I’ve been trying to write a blog post for ages now, but nothings been grabbing my attention, until now! What Vicky Read created the Lover Book Tag, which is inspired by Taylor Swift’s new album, which I have been listening to non stop since it came out.
I Forgot That You Existed – A book on your TBR that you’d completely forgotten about
I had to go to my Goodreads TBR shelf to answer this one. One book that I completely forgot I had on my TBR shelf is Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. I added this book to my TBR shelf in 2015. I don’t think this is a book I would go out of my way to read now, and I actually will probably take it off my TBR shelf now.
Cruel Summer – A Perfect Summer Read
I love reading fantasy books in the summer. I’m not a huge contemporary fan, so I like to use summer as a time to catch up on my favorite fantasy series.
Lover – Your Favourite Book/Series
I finally read Finale by Stephanie Garber, and I absolutely loved it. Now that I’ve finished the trilogy, I can definitively say that it is one of my favorite series. I loved each book, and there was no second-book-slump.
The Man – An Amazing Female Character
I’m going to have to go with Mia from Unearthed and Undying by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Mia is such a badass and is definitely one of my favorite female characters ever.
The Archer – A book from your childhood because you never grew up
The Percy Jackson books will always stick with me. I love the world Rick Riordan created, and I love how we got to grow up with the characters throughout the books and spinoff series. I even went to see The Musical in New York and it was incredible.
I Think He Knows – A book everyone knows you love!
Everyone in my life knows how much I love Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter novels, they’ve been a longtime favorite.
Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince – A book that makes you so sad you could paint the town blue
Undying by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner actually made me cry, and books never make me cry.
Paper Rings – Your favourite OTP
One of my new OTPs is Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I love the way Bardugo wrote their relationship.
Cornelia Street – A book that lived up to the hype
I was really scared to read The Wicked King by Holly Black because I loved The Cruel Prince so much. Luckily, TWK lived up to the hype and was a worthy follow-up.
Death by a Thousand Cuts – A book that saying goodbye to is death by a thousand cuts so you just have to re-read it again
Finale was so hard for me to finish. I never want this series to end, and it was so hard for me to say goodbye to those characters.
London Boy – A book based in London
I don’t think I’ve read many books set in London, but The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare is always a favorite.
Soon You’ll Get Better – A book that brightens up your sky
Any of Rick Riordan’s books always make me laugh. He’s such a fantastic writer, and I love his characters.
False God – A book that you could reread over again because it still does it for you, babe
The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout will always be a favorite. I love the characters.
You Need to Calm Down – An LGBTQ+ book you’d GLAADly recommend
Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat is definitely not for everyone, but it’s a favorite of mine.
Afterglow – It’s Not the Book, It’s Me (A book that wasn’t for you)
An Enchantment of Ravens is loved by so many people, but I was just so bored by it. It moved too quickly and the romance was so forced and fake to me.
ME! – A Character You Relate To
Scarlett from Caraval by Stephanie Garber is literally me. We have the same personality and I am fiercely protective of my younger sister too, who reminds me of Tella.
It’s Nice to Have a Friend – A Character You’d Love to be Friends With
Katy from the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout jumps to my mind immediately. She’s so funny and relatable, and also such a badass. She’s definitely one of the most powerful female characters I’ve read about.
Daylight – A book that you weren’t sure of at first but turned out to be amazing!
I was skeptical when I first read Roseblood by A.G. Howard, but I ended up really enjoying it. I definitely plan on rereading it sometime in the future.
