This tag is a mash up of several tags I’ve seen around the interwebs but is mostly found over at Dreamland Book Blog. I’ve been a HUGE Harry Potter fan since I was a kid so this tag was a must.
A book you found interesting but would like to rewrite.
I have two for this one. Both had really good premises but the execution was lacking. The Jewel’s biggest fault was the romance while Scorpion Rules had pacing issues.
A first book in a series that got you hooked
Again, it’s a toss up between two. Bardugo’s books always seem to hook me right away but Graceling was a bit of a surprise and had me scrambling for the rest of the books in that world faster than you could say “next”.
A book that you wish you could have right now.
*grabby hands* God I hate being poor.
A killer book…
Haha both literally and figuratively, this book is totally killer. Killer nuns. That’s all I have to say. Moving on…
A book you found confusing.
In the most loving of ways. I love Martin but his books need to come with an annotated character guide or something. So many names are kind of similar and who is in what house? Argh. Honestly watching the show right after finishing each book helped a lot.
The Guarding Spell
Your Spirit Animal book.
If you know the story then you know me. God I love this book, even to this day. I will recommend it to everyone forever.
Dark Curse (That’s not what I’d call it but whatever)
A dark, twisted book
Honestly most of Ann Aguirre’s books are dark and twisted, and that’s probably a big part of why I enjoy them so much. I would love to see inside her head sometime.
Expecto Patronum (again?)
The Patronus Charm
A childhood book connected to good memories
Vampire bunnies, werewolf dachshunds, a cat with an over active imagination and a dog that writes. What more could a kid want in a book?
A book that took you by surprise.
I actually almost DNFed this book. It was so hard to get through the first half and then suddenly I couldn’t stop. I couldn’t stop for 3 whole books. And then it was over and I couldn’t wait to do it again.
The last book you read
I love Mercedes Lackey’s adult books but these YA ones are something totally different from what I’m used to from here. I’m in love.
Boggart Banishing Spell
A funny book you’ve read
I mean ok it’s a bit juvenile but fart jokes and dwarf butts are still pretty funny.
A book you think everyone should know about
Fantasy plus science plus mystery equals one hell of a book.
A book or spoiler you would like to forget having read
In a good way…
So I can experience it fresh again.
In a bad way…
Or any Twilight related book honestly. Let’s just forget these happened.
A book you had to read for school
For our AR reading in middle school I was trying to find books that interested me. Until I found this series I spent a lot of my reading time flying through books I didn’t care about.
A book that’s painful to read
Dear god, never again will I touch a Patterson book.
A book you wish you could separate from its series.
This book was so good, and its sequel was just so not. I like to pretend it doesn’t exist.
A book that repels you.
God, just kill me now. I could tolerate the first 3 books in this series even as bad as they are. However this book is just an unforgivable mess.
A book that left you stunned speechless
Though I kind of guessed a few things the beauty of this book still leaves me speechless.
I hope you all enjoyed the tag! Feel free to answer these on your own blog or in the comments below.
