A Stranger’s Guide to Novels and Mud and Stars posted this book tag and both said they nominate everyone to do it. It looks like a fun and easy tag, so I wanted to take part in it. (Special shout out to LovelyLikeLaura for creating the tag!)
Phase One-Initial Attraction: A Book That You Bought Because of the Cover?
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
I mean just look at that cover!
Phase Two-First Impressions: A Book That You Got Because of the Summary?
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
I think I wanted some sort of dystopian book. This worked out well.
Phase Three-Sweet Talk: A Book with Great Writing?
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
It’s written with lyrical prose. The only other lyrical prose I’ve read is Make Lemonade and I definitely fell in love with Tahereh’s work most.
Phase Four-First Date: A First Book of a Series Which Made You Want to Pick Up the Rest of the Series?
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I wish there had been more. The Mortal Instruments series did not do Will, Jem, and Tessa justice and I missed TID so much while reading TMI.
Phase Five-Late Night Phone Calls: A Book That Kept You Up All Night?
Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster
I NEEDED to see when Emil’s path crossed with Mara’s so I stayed up pretty late. No regrets.
Phase Six-Always on My Mind: A Book You Could Not Stop Thinking About?
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
I think you can tell by my choices that this is never far from my mind.
Phase Seven-Getting Physical: A Book Which You Love the Way it Feels?
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
The hardcover book jacket feels rubbery and I love touching it. #BookPorn
Phase Eight-Meeting the parents: A Book Which You Would Recommend to Your Family and Friends?
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Great Beauty and the Beast retelling that everyone needs to read.
Phase Nine-Thinking about the future: A Book or Series You Know You Will Reread Many Times in the Future?
Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi
I am always skimming these books and wishing I had time to reread them. I know I will in the future.
Phase Ten-Share the Love: Who Do You Tag?
