It’s always fun to do tags that bridge the gap between the fantasy world I spend so much time in and the real world that, maybe I don’t spend enough time in.
Thanks goes to Jesse @ Books at Dawn for the tag! He knows how much I love lists and he feeds my compulsion by tagging me in anything and everything list-y. ^.^
Pure Paradise – A book that was pure perfection
“Red Rising” had everything. The level of complexity was so intense at first but I loved how fully immersive Darrow’s narrative is. There isn’t a single character I hated, yes, even the bloodydamn villains were well done and I loved their evil asses.
Sweet Pea – A romance/contemporary you really enjoyed
“Where She Went” surprised me with it’s ending. I don’t want to spoil anything, but being in Adam’s perspective for the sequel to “If I Stay” was really incredible. I loved how sharp and brutally honest he was.I appreciated the themes Forman addressed in the sequel, and that’s all I’m going to say. (My lips are sealed.)
Fresh Strawberries – A book you really enjoyed that came out this year
“Six of Crows” hands down was my #1 favorite release of the year. I fangirled so hard in my review, so I wont do it again. (*voice in my head* “Blasphemy! You can not fangirl too much over SoC!”) Me: Yes, yes, I know. But let’s give the readers a break, yeah?
Warm Vanilla – A character and/or book that made you feel all warm inside
I loved “The Raven Boys”. I also just adored Adam. He doesn’t come from a well-off family like the other boys and he works his ass off as like three different jobs to afford his tuition. He’s humble and thoughtful. His relationship with the other boys is endearing and I love how he treats Blue.
Paris Amour – A couple you majorly ship together
Sam and Celaena! But to be fair, I ship Celaena with everyone in this set of novellas. First with Captain Rolfe, then Aroybynn, then Sam, then the Healer, then Ilias, then Aeryn, then back to Sam. But underneath all of those ships, I was still voting for Sam.
Dancing Waters – A book that takes place on the beach/ the perfect beach read
There is a beach scene in “An Ember in the Ashes”, but I don’t read any books that I’d consider a beach read. What is that? I don’t even know. Can someone please explain this to me?!
I Heart Cake (and Books) – your favorite book
Like every book worm, I have a lot of favorite books. But I really do love the style of “Shatter Me” and “Unravel Me”. The crossed out text and the stream of consciouness is probably my favorite style of writing. So I really enjoyed reading the first 2 books in the series. (I haven’t read “Ignite Me” so no spoilers!! ^.^).
Winter Candy Apple – A book set during Christmas or winter
I feel like no one I know has read “Lord of Snow and Shadows”. I read it a looong time ago. But I remember Gavril being both dark and swoon-worthy through-out the series. Please, someone read this! 😀
Beautiful Day – A book with an unusual / interesting / appealing setting
They’re stuck in a deadly maze. You can’t get more unusual than that. Okay, you can, but you get where I’m going with this. The book had a lot of intrigue and WAY more character development that the movies let on.
Dazzling Diamonds – A beautiful cover
I love black and white pictures. Throw a hint of silver & red and I’m done. The Cover for “The Nights Circus”features a flat design, another weakness of mine, and it has these beautiful swirly elements that enchant me.
I Choose You, Pikachu!
It always amazes me when someone follows me. It makes me feel great and lets me know that someone out there likes what I’m doing here at A Little Bookish, A Little Writerly. Today, in an attempt to thank the amazing and absurdly talented bloggers who have followed me recently, I’d like to tag them to do this light and fun book tag!
