Happy Monday! I worked all weekend so I plan to spend my day off today catching up on some reading. Kelly @ Another Book in the Wall tagged me to do The Cookie Book Tag and the questions looked so fun! Check out Kelly’s blog; she’s amazing and I love her posts!
CHOCOLATE CHIP: A CLASSIC BOOK THAT YOU LOVE OR REALLY ENJOYED
The Iliad by Homer. I’ve actually read this twice – both for school – and I loved it both times! As a huge Greek mythology nerd this has everything I love about those ancient stories; meddling gods and goddesses, war and action, and a whole crew of famous Greek heroes.
THIN MINTS: A FANDOM THAT YOU WANT TO JOIN AND/OR A HYPED BOOK YOU WANT TO READ
I mentioned this is one of my last posts, but I really want to read the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. I’ve heard and read so many great things about this series and I hope I get around to reading them soon!
SHORTBREAD: AN AUTHOR YOU CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF
Leigh Bardugo. I’ve called her the Boss-Ass Queen of Writing before and I stand by that statement. Her writing is amazing, her stories are engaging and captivating, and her characters are dynamic and lovable.
SAMOAS: AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER
A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck. This book absolutely wrecked my heart (ha. see what I did there?) It was very easy to feel connected with the protagonist, and therefore I felt all of his emotions while reading: anger, embarrassment, heartache, grief. I both laughed and ugly-cried while reading this.
OREOS: A BOOK WHOSE COVER WAS BETTER THAN THE STORY OR VICE VERSA
Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman. These books are amazing and I can’t wait for the last book to come out in the fall! There are a few different editions of these covers but good lord, none of them are pretty to look at. I actually bought my copies from Dymocks because the Australian editions are not as bad.
TAGALONGS: A BOOK THAT WASN’T WHAT YOU EXPECTED
The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron. As part of the plot, there’s a few reveals about the story that show that not everything is what it seems. There’s one twist that I was definitely not expecting that changes the reader’s perception of the setting and the story quite a bit.
SNICKERDOODLES: A BOOK YOU MAY NEVER STOP LOVING
I’m going to go with A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. I simply cannot get enough of those books or the characters or all of the side stories and histories. Similar to the Harry Potter series, these books are going to stay with me forever.
This was really fun and I hope you all enjoyed my answers! I’m tagging the following lovely bloggers:
