This book tag was created by readatmidnight , the graphics also belong to her. This is a very creative tag and I expect to have a lot of fun doing it. Since I’m very new here, I won’t tag anybody (I wasn’t tagged myself), if you want to do it, however, consider yourself tagged by me.
I believe the first book that started my love for reading was Heidi by Johanna Spyri , I remember reading it when I was like 10 years old and enjoying it very much. This is also the first book I’ve read in one day. (I’ve had the reading disease for so long, i cry)
LORD OF THE RINGS, LORD OF THE RINGS. Let me tell you something about myself. I’m a Tolkien enthusiast, I’ve watched the movies so many times I’ve lost count, I love every aspect about the universe, the characters, it’s all so amazing. It’s my childhood and I can’t see myself ever not loving Lord of The Rings.
Hmmm, this is a hard question because I tend to avoid over-hyped books. That’s why I end up reading very popular books very late – sometimes I regret it, sometimes I don’t. For this category I’ll choose the Throne of Glass series. I’ve lost interest in it mostly because I don’t like where the plot is going, I don’t like how characters are treated, but maybe the fact that it’s everywhere had a huge impact on me too.
I’ll have to go with all the books that include the fake-relationship trope. Whenever I see this trope in a description, I’m already a goner. It’s just too much for me to handle. I GOT TO HAVE IT. So, here we have : Act like It by Lucy Parker, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han & No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista.
I’m a coward. I’m a little coward and this book tag is here to show you all this. I get very intimidated by huge books. I don’t know why. Maybe because I’m lazy or maybe because I’m impatient, who knows? Therefore, I have lots of books for this category. I’ll mention just some of those : Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, absolutely everything by Leo Tolstoy, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon & The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
HAHAHAHA, what about you just check my entire read shelf on goodreads? Because I always stay up to read books. But I guess I’ll just have to think about a book that kept me up at night very, very late. And I’ll go with The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski because I think I stayed up all night to finish it (I wasn’t disappointed at all). Such a great book.
Too many. That’s why I suffer all the time.
Kestrel/Arin from The Winner’s Trilogy, Katniss/Peeta from The Hunger Games, Percy/Annabeth from Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Lara Jean/Peter from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Achilles/Patroclus from The Song of Achilles, Ryke/Daisy from the Addicted series.
P.S. I like you by Kasie West and also everything by Kasie West, the queen of fast-paced fluffy reads.
The Addicted series. I really love the twins for writing more and more books about the gang and also about their children. I feel like I could never tire of those characters.
I think Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead surprised me a lot. When I first heard about it, I thought it would be another sappy, stupid romantic vampire book, but I found so many loveable things about it – like the friendship between Lissa and Rose or the relationship between Christian and Lissa, I even liked Dimitri and Rose.
Not sure if it counts as a series, but I’m very excited to read Six of Crows and the Crooked Kingdom (the duology). I’ve actually started reading Six of Crows and I can’t wait to see whether I end up loving it – like everybody else and their cats do – or not.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, it looks so good, though so many collector’s editions look flawless and I wish to have them and yes, this book tag is depressing.
I’m very excited about The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, can you believe that its movie rights had been already sold? I can’t wait to put my hands on this book because it’s such a important subject and we need more books like that and I need to read more diverse books.
My auto-buy authors are Madeline Miller, Krista & Becca Ritchie, Rick Riordan, Jenny Han, Kasie West, Gillian Flynn, Marie Rutkoski, C.S.Pacat, Nora Sakavic and some more that I most probably didn’t remember at the moment.
Do you mean Infini by Krista & Becca Ritchie??? Or Circe by Madeline Miller? I’ve been waiting these books for so long, I can’t do it anymore. Thank god Infini is coming out in January because my heart couldn’t have taken it for any longer.
So, this was the tag, I’ve had a lot of fun and I think this also made you more familiar with my book taste and maybe gave you some ideas for your next reads. What are the releases you’ve been waiting on forever? What about your favourite authors? Tell me in the comments.
