I’m going to be honest, I’ve heard of The Chainsmokers, but I’m not a fan. Still, I’m going to do this tag because for one, it’s a book tag, and two, I was tagged by Maddie @ Polaroid Books. Even if I hadn’t been tagged I would’ve done it. Again, it’s a book tag.
Now let’s begin!
Roses / a book series that you didn’t want to end
The Mortality Doctrine series by James Dashner. I was hooked on this series and read all three books right in a row. I was so upset with things that happened in the final book and that there aren’t anymore books to follow what happens with Michael and his friends in the VirtNet after they saved it. I mean, can’t there be another hacker who tries to take over the world?
Don’t Let Me Down / an upcoming book you have high expectations for
By Your Side by Kasie West. I’m personally excited for this one because the characters are stuck in the library for the weekend. As a library lover, that sounds pretty cool to me (well, minus having to live off of vending-machine food). It’s also the first release of this year that I’m interested in reading.
Inside Out / a book with a beautiful cover and a beautiful story
Isla and the Happily Ever After. I adore the cover of this book and the story is beautiful. To be fair, I also love the covers and stories of the previous companion books, Lola and the Boy Next Door and Anna and the French Kiss.
Until You Were Gone / a book you read when it wasn’t trending anymore
The Hunger Games books. I didn’t finish reading the series until after Mockingjay Part 2 had come out on DVD. It’s funny because I did actually want to read the books back when the first movie came out, but didn’t get around to it before I saw the movie. My friend had been in town, and it was the only day he was, so we saw it right when it hit theaters.
Closer / a book you wish you hadn’t read
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child… even though it was actually the script of the play in London. Still, I didn’t enjoy too much of the story. There were just some things of the plot that were kind of ridiculous. I can honestly say the only thing I truly enjoyed about the book was the character of Scorpius Malfoy.
Waterbed / a book you read that gave you so many feels
A Time For Dancing. This book hit me real hard at the time I read it because it was only two years after my mom had gotten her cancer removed, and the book is about two best friends and one of them is diagnosed with cancer. It hit me very close to home and at the end of the book I was crying so hard. That was probably the hardest I’ve ever cried over a book.
Kanye / an expensive book that you need right now
What They Don’t Teach You in Library School. It’s actually $52 for a new copy on Amazon, but I cheated and literally just bought a used copy of it. I want to get a head start before I actually start school for my Library Science degree (hehe).
#Selfie / a photogenic book
Anna and the French Kiss. I love taking photos of this book and could probably do so all the time.
Good Intentions / a book with good reviews and you think you’ll like too
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe. I’ve seen this pass by a few patrons in the library, so I’ve asked them how they liked it and they all say that they loved it. It also has pretty good reviews on Goodreads and Barnes & Noble, so I’m definitely putting this on my reading list for this year. The synopsis is interesting and after reading a sample, I think I’ll really like it.
New York City / a book you stayed up all night for, perhaps in tears
This was many moons ago, but Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I mean, really, I stayed up for all the Harry Potter books, but I specifically remember this one when I got to the part of Snape killing Dumbledore in the Astronomy Tower. I started crying and remember pushing myself to read on through the tears.
Tag! You’re It!
I hope you all enjoy doing this tag as much as I did. Again, thanks Maddie for tagging me and I look forward to doing more bookish tags in the future. Maybe I’ll even start doing Book Tag videos! We’ll see.
