I’m so (woefully) behind on all my book tags that I’ve actually lost track of all the ones I was tagged for (sorry about that!). But break started! And Alyssa recently tagged me to do the ABBA book tag and the Unpopular Opinions tag (which I’ve done before here) so I decided I may as well do this tag. If you guys haven’t already, do go check out Alyssa’s fabulous blog – it’s super cool and if you sign up for her newsletter, you get bonus content (that is frankly quite awesome).
Take a Chance on Me (a book you unexpectedly liked)
I don’t usually read historical fiction but Code Name Verity was incredible. I borrowed the audiobook from my school’s digital library and couldn’t stop listening to it. There was one point where I was hiding my phone under the covers and listening to the book at midnight because I desperately wanted to know what happened next.
The Winner Takes it All (An overhyped book)
I had really high expectations for Everything, Everything but the characters weren’t very three dimensional and the plot was rather nonexistent. It was interesting to read but not a book that I would want to reread.
Waterloo (An amazing historical fiction book)
Like I said, I barely read historical fiction so once again Code Name Verity!! Read it! You won’t regret it!
You’re Only A Child (a recently published book)
Ok this was published two months ago but I recently finished reading it so it sort of counts. And these days, I rarely read a book right after it’s published. I’m too busy catching up!
I Have A Dream (a favourite, ‘ideal’ book)
Alyssa mentioned this one too but THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD. I mean there’s magic and time travel and (hot) time travelers. Also, Kell is my absolute favorite.
Dancing Queen (A book with royalty)
I guess Queen of Shadows definitely counts! But I personally feel like this book isn’t as good as the first few. And I didn’t really enjoy the chapters from other character’s POVs – I just wanted it to focus on Celaena/Aelin.
Money, Money Money (a book you’re willing to pay lots for, because it’s awesome)
The Rose & The Dagger is the sequel to The Wrath and the Dawn which is a retelling of the Arabian Nights. Shazi is one of my favorite female characters and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
Lay All Your Love on Me (a book that needs more attention)
The Weight of Feathers is such an incredible book but for some reason I haven’t heard it mentioned as much as the books I’ve used to answer the previous questions. The Weight of Feathers is so original and so fucking perfect. You guys should definitely add this one to your tbr piles.
Here We Go Again (a book that seemed to copy another book)
I’m not saying Red Queen isn’t a good book because it is but it’s a lot like other dystopian books that were already out there. Parts of it just reminded me of other books I’d read (ie. The Winner’s Curse) so it didn’t seem that original.
S.O.S. (A book that should get in trouble and NOT be rescued)
I was really looking forward to reading Winter but then I didn’t end up ditching it. I enjoyed the first three books in The Lunar Chronicles but Winter was pretty disappointing.
Knowing Me, Knowing You (a book you know a lot about for whatever reason)
Sorry guys, I couldn’t think of anything other than Harry Potter which I don’t remember a lot about anymore.
Thanks for tagging me Alyssa! I am not going to tag anyone but if anyone wants to do this tag, go right ahead!
