Sofii @A Book. A Thought. did this fun tag for her birthday and, well, I just couldn’t resist doing it for mine as well 😄 I’m now 24 and finding that simply impossible (I think reading YA has kept my mind young?? Or I’ve simply been stuck in denial that I could possibly continue aging past 17 until I had at least saved the world or something like every YA protagonist ever haha 😂) Technically my birthday was earlier this week but I like to stick to my MWF posting schedule soooo….today is close enough!)
a dark book you absolutely love
Six of Crows isn’t the darkest book I’ve read (although it does get its hands bloody) but I love it so much I had to pair it with the dark chocolate cake!
a light read
This was a really quick read that made me feel good after reading. It wasn’t super dark or heavy and it simply told a story with an impactful point.
a book that gave you mixed emotions
I absolutely fell in love with Kell, the world-building, the writing,…the only thing that gave me mixed feelings overall with this book was Lila. I know she’s the favorite for most of you but for whatever reason we didn’t get along and that gave me mixed feelings about this book and if I wanted to keep reading the series.
a book you would recommend to anyone
I’m taking things back to the basics with this one. I absolutely love the Harry Potter series (as does millions of people worldwide) so I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend it to anyone!
a book you started but never finished
I know this book is a favorite for many fantasy book lovers but I just couldn’t get through it. I think I got maybe 60 (?) pages in before I went ahead and called it quits. It’s not like it was bad but it just failed to keep my attention and interest.
a book with great writing
George Orwell is a gifted writer and ever since the first time I read this classic book ten years ago it’s stuck with me!
a book that left you wanting more
This series is intense. It’s also really twisted. It’s a post-apocalyptic/dystopian romance that you will definitely either hate or love. I had no idea what to expect but by the end of the first book I was gasping and ended up devouring the whole series in two days!
a series with 4+ books
This one was actually hard to choose something for because I don’t really read many series that are longer than a trilogy. Most authors I read don’t write series longer than a trilogy and I just personally prefer trilogies or less because I don’t tend to stay invested that long otherwise (although there are always exceptions!).
a book that wasn’t what you anticipated
As a Potterhead I let my imagination and hopes run wild when this play was announced…unfortunately it left me wanting and had a different vibe that I hadn’t expected.
Feel free to do this tag for yourself! It was fun to put together PLUS it’s filled with pictures of delicious cake ❤
