Happy Monday! One of my favorite blogs, Paws & Paperbacks, tagged me in this post and I can’t resist. I love book tags, and I love a good cookie!
CHOCOLATE CHIP: A CLASSIC BOOK THAT YOU LOVE OR REALLY ENJOYED
Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte. Truthfully, I never really liked the classics, but for me it’s the OG of unlikeable characters and I’ve always been into those.
THIN MINTS: A FANDOM THAT YOU WANT TO JOIN AND/OR A HYPED BOOK YOU WANT TO READ
The Red Queen series, by Victoria Aveyard! At this point I own all the books, and just need to make time to read them. Also, I’m a wannabe Cassandra Clare fangirl. I’ve read the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, and I want to read all eleventy billion of the books and spinoff series that exist in that world.
SHORTBREAD: AN AUTHOR YOU CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF
Show of hands, who will be surprised if I say Katie Cotugno? No one?
SAMOAS: AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER
Girl Made of Stars, by Ashley Herring Blake. My heart was freaking HEAVY after this one.
OREOS: A BOOK WHOSE COVER WAS BETTER THAN THE STORY OR VICE VERSA
The Chaos of Standing Still, by Jessica Brody. I was so excited for this one, but I had to DNF fairly early in. I took real issue with the digs the author threw in. A few of the words I found in the first 100 pages: craziest, schizo, psycho, and insane, all of which are used to describe a person. There’s also the quote “gay and doesn’t know it.” What finally made me quit was when I reached page 106 and saw the phrase “crazy super slut” FOUR TIMES on the same page. No. Just…no.
TAGALONGS: A BOOK THAT WASN’T WHAT YOU EXPECTED
Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein. HOLY PLOT TWIST, BATMAN! I can’t even try to spoil this one, the plot structure is too intricate and tangled, there are too many small pieces that connect to others and I’d never get it right. Gah just go read it.
SNICKERDOODLE: A BOOK YOU MAY NEVER STOP LOVING
The Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas. I end up reading these straight through every year to prep for the latest installation, and I’m never disappointed. There’s always something I hadn’t noticed before, some small moment that only clicks six books later. This author leaves NO thread hanging. There are characters I’m just waiting to see again, plot pieces I know she’ll get back to. There are people who think this series went downhill after the first few, but NOT ME!!
This was a really fun tag! I’m tagging everyone, because it’s fun and I’m dying to read all your answers!
