The Book Feels Tag!

Hello bookish friends! I was tagged for this quite a while ago by the lovely Rhea from Bookchanted Do check her blog out!!  Taylor from Tay’s Infinite Thoughts is the creator of the book tag! There aren’t any rules except linking back to the person who tagged you and the creator.

 

A Book/series that made you smile or laugh

The most recent? The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I was crazy over this series and finished the books in 3 days (Talk about addicted). It had a Twilight yet fresh feel, and the characters and great story had me hooked the to story and I am still hung over.

 

A Book/series that made you sad or want to cry

It’s a Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt

I remembered tearing throughout this entire book, and I’m not even sure why! The story was pretty good, but the redemption arc was definitely what did it for me! It’s definitely an underrated book that should be read more!

 

A Book/series that you love

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, To all the boys I’ve loved before series by Jenny Han, When It’s real by Erin Watt and a lot more, but here are a few

 

A Book/series that you didn’t particularly like

Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo

I’m one of those people who unfortunately didn’t like the book. I think if I had gotten through the first few chapters, I may have ended up loving it.

 

A book/series that was made into a movie that you liked

I actually haven’t found one yet. A lot of books I’ve read actually haven’t been made into movies. I do love quite a few TV shows though, like 13 reasons why, The Shadowhunters.

 

A book/series that was made into a movie that you didn’t like

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I actually watched ALL the movies before I even gave the book a go, but many people were complaining that the movie was trash. I felt that it was okay, but pretty cheesy. When I read the first book (I didn’t continue the series), I immediately agreed that it was the book to movie adaptation that spoiled this book.

 

A book/series you have mixed feelings about

516M+meNNdL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The Selection series by Kiera Cass

I definitely agree with Rhea on this one! I loved the first three books of the series, but the last two just didn’t click with me.

 

A book/series you haven’t read but are totally excited about

theroyals1_v3-number1-web-large.jpg

The Royals series by Erin Watt

I still haven’t managed to read this series yet, ugh.

 

A book/series that made you angry

24885809.jpg

Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius

I was so annoyed with everyone else except the protagonist of this novel!

 

A book/series you feel like you can relate to

510EzrZARuL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I definitely agree with Rhea again over here! I really could relate to Cinder and Cress. I really admire Cinder and probably would be best friends with Cress.

Drowning in my TBR pile Book Tag

Hello bookish friends! I saw this post on SincerelyKarenJo’s blog (Go send her some love!) and I think everyone is drowning in their TBR piles, so I think it’s a good time to give this tag a go!

 

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I just add books to the ‘want to read’ section on my Goodreads!

 

Is your TBR mostly print or eBooks?
I think it’s 80% print books and 20% eBooks

 

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I usually don’t. I definitely prioritise ARCs first and then books I got from my visit to the library and then the books I own but have not read yet.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest? 

22399053.jpg

Don’t fall by Rachel Shieffelbein has been in my TBR since April 2015

A book that you recently added to your TBR?

34510120.jpg

The Rose and the Mask by Victoria Leybourne. LOOK at that beautiful cover and it’s a beauty and the beast retelling!

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

restore-me.jpg

I’m totally going to agree with Karen over here and am totally excited to read Restore me!

 

A book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading?

I don’t think that I would never read things that I add to my TBR. I would give it a go and if I don’t like it, it goes into the DNF category.

 

An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for?

27188596.jpg

War Storm (Red Queen #4) by Victoria Aveyard. (Look at that beautiful cover) And I was on the Facebook live when they were asking us to guess the title for this fourth book!

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you?

33509076.jpg

Black bird of the gallows by Meg Kassel. I’ve seen a ton of people do their reviews but I just can’t seem to get my hands on the book.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone recommends to you?

I usually have very different likes from the normal YA audience, so people don’t really recommend me books, it’s more of me recommending books to others since I have a big fetish for dystopian books.

A book on your TBR that you are just dying to read?

28678119.jpg

Paper Princess by Erin Watt. After I read When it’s real by Erin Watt, it ignited the flames for me to want to read Paper princess! But my local library refuses to bring it in as they say it’s not ‘appropriate’. (When did libraries get to decide whether books were appropriate or not?) From what I know, this book contains sexual content, but literally ALL ADULT ROMANCE BOOKS contain sexual content, jeez. Even if they mention that it isn’t appropriate, some YA books actually do have some sexual content too. Just slap on a warning sign and let us bookworms read in peace😒

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

Screen Shot 2017-12-02 at 10.14.07 PM.png
I’ve been a member since 2013 (Omg, seriously?) and have exactly 295 books on my TBR at this moment. I know 295 still sounds pretty small but I’ve actually read quite a lot of books!

Tagging everyone who’s drowning in their TBR and everyone else who wants to do this.

The playlist book tag

I found The Playlist Book Tag which was created by Sarah over at The Little Contemporary Corner over at The Wanderlust Reader’s blog  and wanted to give this a go!

 

One Direction: A book you would still love without one of the main characters

I don’t think I would like any books without the main characters. If there isn’t a main character, there isn’t a story!

 

Busted: A book you didn’t expect to have a sequel

  13517444-1.jpg  17874904.jpg

Stung by Bethany Wiggins had a sequel named Cure! I didn’t feel the need  for a sequel since the first book was already so awesome on it’s own!

 

5 Seconds of Summer: A book that reminds you of summer

30731416.jpg

When it’s real by Erin Watt. The book is so hot and contemporary, contemporary reminds me of summer

 

Adele: A book you love or you hate

36381037.jpg

Cinder by Marissa Meyer, absolutely LOVE

 

Taylor Swift: A guilty pleasure book

18051352.jpg

To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han. After I finished the first book, I could put the rest of the series down!

 

Green Day: A book that bored you to sleep for a whole month

None! If I was bored of a book I would immediately change it out

 

Coldplay: A book that makes you sad no matter how many times you read it

18692432.jpg

I don’t tend to reread books, but Curses and Smoke by Vicky Alvear Shecter would definitely make me sad since everyone knows how the story of Pompeii ends.

 

The Glee Cast: A book that you’d like to be made in to a musical

30731416.jpg

I could choose When it’s real by Erin Watt (again)

 

Ed Sheeran: A book that was more emotionally heavy than you expected it to be

34964873.jpg

Flight season by Marie Marquardt

 

Miley Cyrus: A book that you still don’t understand

The Gauntlet by Megan Shepherd. I don’t understand why it had to end that way (Cries)

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

(I can’t really remember and don’t have the image or book with me, but I think that this book’s end-ages were really nice)

I definitely agree with Kathryn on this! The work for this map looks absolutely stunning!

The Cage Series by Megan Shepherd

Screen Shot 2017-11-14 at 11.39.28 PM.png

I’ll tag anyone who wants to participate! Let me know in the comments below, what other book covers you find aesthetically pleasing!

Beauty and The Beast Book Tag

This tag was created by Kirsty and the Cat Read but I saw it over at Book Princess Reviews 

 

TALE AS OLD AS TIME: A POPULAR THEME, TROPE, OR SETTING YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED OF READING.

Science Fiction Dystopian! I will never ever get bored of reading Dystopian books (I don’t even know why) Although I DNF books quite often once I know I wouldn’t like it, it physically pains be to DNF a dystopian book

 

BELLE: A BOOK YOU BOUGHT FOR ITS BEAUTIFUL COVER THAT’S JUST AS BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE TOO.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I remember that moment when I saw it on the bookshelf and I found the cover really pretty (This was like 5 years ago) and I decided to buy the book after reading the synopsis and have never regretted it.

 

BEAST: A BOOK THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH FROM BUT PLEASANTLY SURPRISED YOU.

The Cage by Megan Shepherd! I mean when I read the synopsis, I really found it interesting, but I never expected to be so pleasantly surprised with the book until I finished it and I started chasing the entire series till the last book.

 

GASTON: A BOOK EVERYONE LOVES THAT YOU DON’T.

A lot actually. Popular books usually get a DNF very early compared to the rest of the books. I think it’s because of the hype, I expected too much and then get disappointed easily.

 

LEFOU- A LOYAL SIDEKICK YOU CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE MORE THAN THEIR COUNTERPART.

None actually, I usually would like the main characters better.

 

MRS. POTTS, CHIP, LUMIERE, AND COGSWORTH: A BOOK THAT HELPED YOU THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME OR TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING VALUABLE.

The Cage by Megan Shepherd got me through a difficult time (of literally feeling as though I was trapped in a cage) and another book that taught me something valuable is A quiet kind of thunder by Sara Barnard, it was so inspirational.

 

SOMETHING THERE: A BOOK OR SERIES YOU WEREN’T INTO AT FIRST BUT PICKED UP TOWARDS THE END.

None, If I don’t like the series at the start, I wouldn’t read it till the end.

 

BE OUR GUEST: A FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU’D LOVE TO HAVE OVER FOR DINNER.

Cress!

Feel free to tag yourselves to do this tag! This tag was so fun and I’m sure all bibliophiles love Beauty and the Beast! Let me know in the comments about what you think of my answers!
