It’s been a while since I did my last tag post, so today I thought I’d tackle another one! This one has been bookmarked on my desktop since the beginning of the month – I can’t believe I’m only getting around to it now! I was tagged by the lovely Nadwa over at @painfullyfictional, who is amazing and should definitely be checked out if you’re not following her already! Thanks again Nadwa!
I have a tendency to ramble on in these intro’s, so I’m going to cut it out, and get straight into the tag!
It’s got to be the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han. I absolutely love this series, it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside – Lara Jean is just too cute and her adorable family are really nice to read about. So much love!
Whenever I get stuck in a reading rut, I always turn to the Lux series by Jennifer L Armetrout. For years, this was the only series that could pluck me out of a slump. I’m sure you can imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t even get through the first 100 pages of the fourth book Origin (Lux – Book Four). Please tell me it gets better, I’m not ready to give up on this series yet!
I’m sure you’ll all be surprised by this next answer, but how could I not say Gemina? Holy cow, there were so many turns in this book I got motion sickness sitting in my living room!
Definitely Emilia from Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys – I have rarely been as heartbroken when reading a book as I was when I traversed Emilia’s story – so sad, and yet somehow so inspiring. (I highly recommend this book – I’m not sure if I’ve ever actually said that on here before!)
I don’t know if it’s warm and fuzzy, but I was pure addicted to The Hunger Games trilogy when it came out – I read the entire series within the space of 2 1/2 days – it was crazy. I’ve reread it multiple times since then and it always makes me feel very peaceful, like crawling into bed with a warm cup of tea.
Recently, I’ve been really loving YA contemporaries (as I’m sure you’ll have grasped from my recent stream of reviews). But I also love a bit of historical fiction and the odd classic here and there – I’m all about variety. I couldn’t possibly begin to tell you what my favourite book is, but Under Rose-Tainted Skies is probably my favourite of 2017 (so far).
When I was younger, it was purely a mixture of cover buys and recommendations from friends. Now, it’s almost exclusively from Book Blogs and Booktube – they rarely let me down!
Oh there are so many options, I really really didn’t like Twilight – I didn’t even make it through the first book.As a general rule, the books I really ‘hate’ are ones that were incredibly hyped, set my hopes high, and then didn’t live up to it – I have a lot of examples of this phenomenon on my Goodreads.
Insta love… or really angsty teens… or protagonists who just have way too many problems… or are whiny… ugh, there are a lot of cliches I’m not a fan of.
I’m not going to lie and say that this is the best series I’ve ever read, but it’s a series I never hear about on Booktube and I think that’s a little unfair. I read The Hollow series by Jessica Verday after my friend bought it for my birthday years ago. This series has beautifully developed characters and acts as a sort of retelling/sequel to The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (which I haven’t read, but still understood this novel, so have no fear). If you haven’t already, go check it out, I’d love to hear more about it on the interwebs!
Oh, it’s the end… if you’ve read this far you are officially tagged! Thanks again for the tag Nadwa, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! You can’t imagine how excited I was to find a tag containing both cats and books – I hope you liked it just as much!
