1. Think. A book that made you think, hard.
Currently, It would definitely be City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare since the events of the books were INSANE and I keep wanting to read the next book ASAP but I’m currently reading Clockwork Princess first. I cannot stop thinking about Alec and Magnus
2. Love. A book that broke or mended your heart.
More than we can tell by Brigid Kemmerer! It was so emotionally heartbreaking to read this story and I was bawling my eyes out constantly!
3. Eat. A book that nourishes you.
Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi! Not that it nourishes me in terms of feeling full, but in terms of drama and unexpectedness, this series has kept me on my toes ever since the first time I read the trilogy!
4. Laugh. A book that brought a little comic relief.
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (You can see that my answers are showing that I’m binge reading the Shadowhunters series right now XD) But I loved the scene where Gideon threw a scone at Gabriel and I kept laughing at it because I kept imagining it in my head.
5. Sex. A book that explores or contains sexuality that doesn’t make you cringe.
Eep, definitely The Kiss Quotient By Helen Hoang! I loved the book despite not being a fan of Adult books!
6. Rest. A book that gave you peace, reflection, or just calms you down.
I would go with The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer! It was the first book that brought me into the YA community and every time I just LOOK at the book I feel better!
7. Experience. A book that introduced you to a new subject or shifted your perspective.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I know this seems a little out of sorts, but let me be honest, I was raised by homophobic parents and a religion that is extremely homophobic, and when I first watched the Shadowhunter TV series, I discovered Alec and Magnus’s relationship and I really rooted for them! After that, I grew more comfortable with the idea and even became LESS homophobic, now making it a point to even mention it to my family (on purpose (but I’m not homosexual) because my mum always feels the need to point out that it’s against the religion and even my country doesn’t really support it.) (Well, the country says they are neutral, but when they rate Love, Simon as R21 and refuse to bring in LGBTQ+ books in the library, I’m pretty sure they’re being homophobic too.)
I’m too lazy to tag you guys, but if you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged!!
