I haven’t done any Book Tags lately, and I saw this awesome Taylor Swift themed one on The Book Browsing Blog and had to fill it out!
Whenever I mention a book that I’ve reviewed below, you can click on the name to see my full post on it.
Are You Ready For It?: What is a book that you are super excited to read?
I’m SUPER excited to read the sequel to Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, Traitor to the Throne. I loved all the characters and the amazing world and mythology, and can’t wait to dive back in.
End Game: What are some of your OTPs?
Elide and Lorcan from Throne of Glass are one of my all-time favorite One True Pairings. I love whenever the bad-broody-in-need-of-redemption males get with the a nice girl. Added bonus when they have some fae blood.
Maximoff and Farrow from the Like Us series by Becca and Krista Ritchie are my favorites in the romance genre. Definitely check that series out!
I Did Something Bad: Name a book with morally grey characters.
Six of Crows is always my go to when thinking of morally grey characters. I mean, the main characters nickname is Dirty Hands and he certainly has completed enough dastardly deeds to live up to it. Despite the highly illegal activities the gang gets up to, you can’t help rooting for them every step of the way.
Don’t Blame Me: What is a book that you recommend to everyone?
I recently read Red Rising by Pierce Brown and have been vehemently recommending it to anyone who likes Fantasy/Sci-Fi. If you’re a fan of either of these genres, you HAVE to check this series out!
Delicate: What is a book that you will never loan to anyone?
Vicious by V. E. Schwab. I have a first edition hardcover (out of print now) , SIGNED and although I love the book, I absolutely REFUSE to lend out my copy to anyone.
Look What You Made Me Do: What is the book that got you into reading?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was the first book that truly enraptured me, way back when I was in Kindergarten. If I hadn’t been exposed to this lovely series, I’m not sure that I would be the avid reader I am today!
So It Goes: What is a book that sucked you into a particular author or series?
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout made me absolutely addicted to all of the authors paranormal work. I’m still working my way through her contemporary books, but her Lux series and The Dark Elements series are amazing!
Gorgeous: Name a book with a beautiful cover.
Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton has an absolutely gorgeous (AND SHINY) UK cover that I’m in love with. Still working my way through Traitor to the Throne, the second book in this series, but I can’t wait until I crack this one open.
Getaway Car: What is a book that you’ve read that has crime involved in some aspect?
Of course, Six of Crows again comes to mind. One book that I haven’t read yet, but am super excited to pick up is The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch which is supposed to be another wonderful heist book.
King Of My Heart: Who is your book boyfriend/girlfriend?
Lorcan Salvaterre from the Throne of Glass series is one of my all-time favorite BAE’s!
Dancing With Our Hands Tied: What is a book that made you want to dance around when you finished it?
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli was such a sweet and touching book. Definitely made me want to twirl around, I was so happy for all of the characters.
Dress: Name a character that you want to swap wardrobes with.
Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass has such an amazing wardrobe, I would love to swap with her! From assassin gear, to beautiful dresses, she has style that I can’t even dream of.
This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things: What is a problematic book you have read?
Fifty Shades of Grey is a book I’ve read that is contentious because of its portrayal of romance isn’t healthy.
Call I What You Want: What is a book that you wish you could change the title to?
I can’t really think of one of these offhand, I feel like every book has the title it does for a reason! What is an example that you can think of?
New Year’s Day: What book gave you a fresh outlook on life?
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas changed my life in high school. In the book, the main character deals with depression and trying to find herself. It found my at exactly the right time and remains my favorite book by Maas.
Thanks for reading, feel free to try this out yourself!
