You’re probably going to be seeing quite a few tags from me in the next few weeks, only because I’m so behind on them and thought I better hurry up and do them already! So thank you to Jasmine @ How Useful It Is for tagging me in this awesome tag! Sorry it’s taken me so long. Everyone please go check out Jasmine’s awesome blog. She posts wonderful reviews and it such an awesome person to interact with ❤
The Harry Potter Book Tag was created by Trang and Lashaan @ Bookidote and all graphics belong to them.
A book you found the theme interesting, but you’d like to rewrite it.
This book has such an interesting concept – two realms of afterlifes battling in an eternal war to garner the most souls – but it was poorly executed. That is due to the protagonist and the terrible writing. The main character, Ten, is a hypocrite every five pages and has the worst case of insta-love I’ve seen in a while, and the writing makes it sound as if she is like her name suggests: ten years old.
The first book in a series that got you hooked.
I read this book and the subsequent series only last year, and I remember after I had finished reading Shadow and Bone, that I just sat still for five minutes thinking, wow, that was epic. I really love this series and this first book got me hooked immediately.
A book you wish you could have right now.
When I say I need this book right now, I mean RIGHT THIS SECOND. I have been trying to get an ARC of this book for months, but no one will give me one 😥 I already know I’m going to love it based upon the first four chapters that have been released thus far.
A killer book. Both senses. Take it as you like.
I loved this book and it was made even better by the awesomely large cast. Emma was a badass Shadowhunter who I want to be my new best friend. Bring on Lord of Shadows this month!
A book that you found really confusing.
I tried reading this book last year and read about 300-and-something pages before I had to give up. I genuinely had no idea what was happening – in fact, nothing was happening. This book is marketed as Harry Potter for adults, but trust me when I say it most definitely is not.
Your spirit animal book.
If you follow my blog, you know I don’t just love this book, I ADORE THIS BOOK. I actually collect this novel and have 12 copies of it as of now. My little brother is travelling in Italy at the moment, and told me that he has bought me an Italian copy. I can’t wait to see it!
A dark twisted book.
If you haven’t read this 600 page graphic novel, then what are you doing with your life? Alan Moore’s incredible graphic novel about Jack the Ripper is the most twisted, violent, and cringe-worthy book I have read to this day, and I love it. When I first read it, I read it in one sitting and woke my sister up at 3 in the morning to tell her about it. She did not appreciate it as much as I did. If you come across this novel somewhere, pick it up and read it ASAP.
A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals more than it is.
I knew I would really enjoy this book, but I didn’t expect to fall in love with it so much and have it briefly take over my life. It’s so lovely, romantic and full of angst, I couldn’t put it down.
