Another Sunday, another book tag.
I’m very excited to do the LOVER BOOK TAG this week! I was eagerly waiting for some one more creative than me to create this tag and of course it was the always wonderful Vicky from @WhatVickyReads (with a little help from @SammysShelf) . So make sure you go and show them some love for being such amazing bloggers
Now if you haven’t listened to Lover yet, you absolutely should and while you’re at it, take part in this tag too! If you do take part in this tag, here are the rules:
- Give credit to the creator (that would be ME!)
- Tag 5 Friends
- HAVE FUN!
So with that, let’s get this tag started. Are you Ready For It?
I Forgot That You Existed | A book on your TBR that you’d completely forgotten about
I don’t know if it’s so much ‘forgotten’ as is is ‘keeps getting pushed to the back of the list’, but I’ll Give you the Sun by Jand Nelson is a book I’ve wanted to read forever.
Cruel Summer | A Perfect Summer Read
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. Really this whole trilogy is perfect for summer – there drama, romance, and a good time to be had by all.
Lover | Your Favourite Book/Series
I don’t think anyone is really surprise with this choice. The Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas has been one I’ve read (and rearead) for years. And I always find something new to love.
The Man | An Amazing Female Character
Daisy Jones from Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a fierce, flawed, incredibly complex woman. And I love her with every fiber of my being.
The Archer | A book from your childhood because you never grew up
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt probably my most reread childhood favorite, but I think it’s one of the most impactful. There’s so much nuance and depth in this small little book that you find something new each time you read it.
I Think He Knows | A book everyone knows you love!
I have not been able to shut up about the perfection that is Scythe by Neal Shusterman since I read it a few years ago. With book 3 coming out later this year, don’t expect me to stop talking about it anytime soon.
Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince | A book that makes you so sad you could paint the town blue
How it Feels to Float by Helena Fox was such an unexpected story that swept me away into Biz’s grief, saddness, and longing.
Paper Rings | Your favourite OTP
Any couple from a Christina Lauren book honestly. I’m not really a hardcore shipper, but if I’m supposed to like a couple, 8/10 times I will. Christine Lauren just makes fun books with really cute couples and I can’t get enough of them.
Cornelia Street | A book that lived up to the hype
It was my own personal hype, but I loved every second of The Beautiful by Renee Ahidieh. It was the paranormal, vampire, angsty goodness I’ve been missing in my life. And I cannot wait for book 2.
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
Circe by Madeline Miller is one of my favorites of the year so far, and while I haven’t done a reread yet. I very much want to. I feel like it will always be a book I turn to for comfort and peace of mind.
London Boy | A book based in London
Again, but Better by Christine Riccio wasn’t a new favorite or anything, but I did like the London setting and exploring some of Europe with Shane.
Soon You’ll Get Better | A book that brightens up your sky
Frankly in Love by David Yoon was a joy to read. There was cute romance stuff, some great genuine friendships, and plenty of complex family relationhips. But all together they make a really enjoyable story that I couldn’t put down.
False God | A book that you could reread over again because it still does it for you, babe
Who doesn’t have a yearly reread of Harry Potter?
You Need to Calm Down | An LGBTQ+ book you’d GLAADly recommend
You Asked For Perfect by Laura Silverman is not a happy-go-lucky romance. It’s a harrowing story of anxiety and the pressures of failure, but there is a wonderfully supportive family and an adorable romance to make this a rich story you can’t put down.
Afterglow | It’s Not the Book, It’s Me (A book that wasn’t for you)
Unpregnant by Jenni Hendriks & Ted Caplan. I just finished this yesterday and I think the kindest thing I can say about it was that I didn’t like it. Look for my review out tomorrow. But I guess I have a new go-to for a least favorite/most disappoing book.
ME! | A Character You Relate To
I’ve always felt like Laura Jean Covey was a kindred spriit. We’re both introverts who love baking and our siblings. But she does have a better sense of style.
It’s Nice to Have a Friend | A Character You’d Love to be Friends With
Sweetie Nair from There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon would be the best friend to have. She’s so positive, supportive, and uplifting. She’s this uplifting, effervescent ray of sunshine you could always brighten up your day or give you a shoulder to cry on.
Daylight | A book that you weren’t sure of at first but turned out to be amazing!
I remember being a little off put by the beginning of The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock – I think it was the deer heart honestly – but this story is just so real, that it completely captivated me.
Thanks so much to Vicky for all the work and effort you put into blogging and creating this tag! As of right now, I think LOVER is neck-and-neck with Reputation for my favorite album. And no one asked, but Cruel Summer is my favorite song right now! Share yours below!
