Book Tag | The Sims Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag.

I’m going back through tags I’ve had bookmarked for ages and I found this one that @KristinKraves a while back. I’m not a huge video game player, but I vaguely remember playing Sims back in elementary school at least once, so I’m allowed to do this tag.

The Original Sims:
The best author debut.

A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy

A River of Royal Blood (A River of Royal Blood, #1)

This is a debut that has stuck with me since I read it last year. I go back to think about worldbuilding and character relationship and I’m excited to see what happens next.

The Grim Reaper:
Saddest character death.

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

I’m not going to spoil the character deaths (like the synopsis does) but they absolutely wrecked me and I’m glad I didn’t know they were going to happen.

Sims Getting Stuck:
A character that just got in the way.

You are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

You Are Not Alone

I feel like the rest of the book club besides the Moore sisters are pretty irrelevant.

A book with amazing writing.

Circe by Madeline Miller


Madeline Miller’s writing is steeped with emotion and makes you feel every word on the page.

Expansion Packs:
A series where the books keep on getting better.

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)

I know a lot of people don’t love The Raven King, but I think it’s such a standout and has such wonderful moments. It’s probably my second favorite book in the series.

Sim Romance:
The worst case of insta-love.

Crave by Tracy Wolff

Crave (Crave, #1)

The insta-love in this story is ridiculous, even for paranormal romances.

A book that was entirely unrealistic.

10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

10 Blind Dates

I don’t need – or even really want – my romance stories to be realistic, because they can be so much more fun otherwise. Like going on 10 blind dates set up by each of your relatives over the holidays after a bad breakup.

Needs Fulfilment:
A character who made all the wrong decisions.

Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales

Only Mostly Devastated

I’m leaning more on the I don’t like this character than one who makes wring decisions. But I think both fit a few characters in this book, namely Ollie and Lara.

Error Code 12:
A series that started off great but went downhill from there.

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

I think the addition of the second trilogy was not the best idea. Because while the original trilogy is a fun, campy guilt pleasure, the sequels just don’t live up, especially the unlikable main character.

The Sims Vortex:
A book/series that completely engrossed you.

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six

If I even don’t know what I want to read, there are a handful of books that I know I can turn too and this is one of them. I love the format and audiobook and everytime I read it, I forget that these people aren’t real and that this band didn’t exist.
