The folklore Book Tag!

Another Sunday, another book tag.

And this week’s tag is very exciting. This (surprise) album is the reason that I didn’t put up a post on Friday. I couldn’t stop listening to it, or watching reactions, and basically just obsessing over it. Like a large portion of book twitter, I had a midnight listening party and loved every second. 

I knew someone would make a book tag for this lyrical album and when Isla @AWhisperofInk created this tag, I knew I had to do it! And I’ll probably do others in the future because I cannot get enough of this album.


  • Link to the original creator: Ilsa @ A Whisper Of Ink
  • Tag at least 3 people.
  • Declare the rules and list of prompts in your post
  • Thank whoever who tagged you and link to their post.

We Are the AntsWe Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

I know it’s a controversial ending but it worked so well for me.

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins ReidMaybe in Another Life

This is a book told in alternate reality timelines and I loved it. You see some things seem inevitable and somethings are easily changed, but it’s packed with emotion.

The City We Became (Great Cities #1)The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin

What a master story crafter. The concepts and follow through are almost unmatched. I loved the boroughs personified and the richness of each represented.

The Empress by S.J. KincaidThe Empress (The Diabolic, #2)

I really loved book 1, The Diabolic, but book 2 was just so unnecessary and did nothing for the plot or characters.

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

THis honestly isn’t saying much, because I have the capacity to cry at literary any book. I once started crying while reading The Selection, so take this with a grain of salt. But because I didn’t read the synopsis, I was bitch slapped with emotion 100 pages in.

Circe by Madeline MillerCirce

I need to do a reread, but I know that when I was reading it, I just got lost in the story. I was so invested and moved by Circe’s journey.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Yes she is an awful person, but the series has so much nostalgia and happiness surrounding it for me.

The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey LeeThe Secret of a Heart Note

The flowers, romance, and whimsy all make this feel like a perfect summer book.

Summer Bird BlueSummer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Akemi’s books tend to have a pretty good balance of happy and sad, but I have shed a few tears while reading 2 books from her. But this one deals with loss of a sibling and it crushed me!

The Book Thief by Markus ZusakThe Book Thief

This was messing up my reading mood so much I could finish it. I would try and pick up something else to read, so at least I was reading, but nothing was what I wanted and I had a stretch of unsatisfying reads.

The Crown's Game (The Crown's Game, #1)The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

In college, I was firmly reading romance and urban fantasy, with a dash of paranormal books sprinkled in, but historical was not on my radar. But I picked this one up after enjoying The Diviners by Libba Bray and it cemented my love of magical historical books.

Celine from The Beautiful by Renee AhdiehThe Beautiful (The Beautiful, #1)

I loved the story period, but Celine is a badass who fights for what she wants and I loved seeing it.

A River of Royal Blood (A River of Royal Blood, #1)A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy

I’m really talking about all the possible couples in this story because I basically ship everyone with everyone and spent a large portion of the book wanting everyone to kiss each other.

Let's Talk About LoveAlice from Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Alice is wonderful – if a bit flaky. But she’s bubbly and relatable amd I love her with my whole heart.

Hungry Hearts: 13 Tales of Food & LoveHungry Hearts: 13 Tales of Food & Love edited by Elsie Chapman

I thought I would really love this because I’ve had such luck with anthologies, but this one didn’t really work for me. I honestly can’t remember a single story, and I rated them mostly 3 stars.


Have you listened to folklore? What’s your favorite song? I don’t know if I can choose, but my top 5 are probably: Exile, The Last Great American Dynasty, Mirror ball, Invisible String, & Peace
