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 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 Reid
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 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. Kincaid
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 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 Miller
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 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 Lee
The flowers, romance, and whimsy all make this feel like a perfect summer book.
Summer 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 Zusak
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 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 Ahdieh
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 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.
Alice 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 & 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
