WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK THIS
This book was beautiful. I can’t even find the words to describe how much I love this book, but I will try. There’s a unique magic system, a centuries-old curse, fairytale tropes, magical mafia… you need this book ok?!
The characters are also the cutest: Jeremy, my cinnamon roll, is an angel and the sweetest character ever. Luke is such a strong badass, who loves fiercely and wants to do the right thing. Honestly, the best book I read all spring. And I am going to reread it during my summer, so if anyone wants to do a buddy read, hit me up!
WHAT WAS YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK THIS
Fortitude Smashed was such a disappointment for me. And what makes the book even more dismaying was that for 80% of the book, I loved it!
It was cruising on a 4.5 star rating … and then something happened and I watched in horror as everything was ruined. I no longer cared about the characters, and I just wanted the book to be over.
WHAT BOOK DID YOU WISH YOU HAD READ THIS
I have been meaning to read History is All You Left Me for ages!! Literally since the beginning of the year – I even bought it the day it came out.
What’s really annoying is that I have read both of Adam Silvera’s other books, and this is the last one and then I’ve read his entire bibliography! (Not hard, there’s only three books.)
I am determined to read this book before the end of the year, but I also know I’ll cry buckets of tears, which is why I’ve been putting it off.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE CLASSIC YOU READ THIS
SUMMER SPRING? (IF YOU DIDN’T READ ONE THIS SUMMER THAN IN GENERAL)
I didn’t read a classic during Spring! Shame on me!!
But you guys already know my all time favourite. In case you forgot: Pride and Prejudice!!!!!
If you haven’t read P&P, get on that immediately please. It’s such an amazingly beautiful, satiric novel that I have read – and I’m not kidding – over 10 times. (I read it like 3 times a year, although I haven’t read it this year yet!!)
DID YOU STRAY INTO A DIFFERENT GENRE AND PICK UP A NEW AND EXCITING BOOK?
I don’t usually read YA contemporaries. The only time I do is when I’ve read too many fantasises and then I have a fantasy overload and I need to read something different for a change of pace.
Usually, I’ll read one contemporary, but last year I went through a stage – over like a month – where all I read was contemporaries. So strange. Anyway, THUG was my favourite contemporary read this Spring!! Such an insightful novel that everyone should read.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE ADAPTATION THIS
Well, I watched IT twice during Spring, and I’m currently reading the book now so I don’t know if it was an accurate adaptation, but the movie was amazing!
Those kids are amazing actors and have an incredible career ahead of them. Also, the movie wasn’t that scary – it was mainly jump scares.
That was good so I could then appreciate the way the movie was made.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE NEW RELEASE BOOK?
Among the Red Stars was amazing!!! Omg, if you’re looking for a book with amazing, competent female characters, look no further!
The book is set during WWII and is about female bomber fighter pilots, based on the real life Night Witches.
I can’t rave about this book enough, it has everything: amazing characters, a beautiful friends-to-lovers story, heartwarming tales of friendship and bravery. Just – read it!!
And anyone else who wants to do this tag!
Also, please don’t feel obliged to do this tag if you don’t want to/have already done it.
