This week was specifically designed to torture me. I have so much work to do that I barely have time for anything. So naturally, I’m writing a post instead of working. I was tagged by Louise @ Geniereads a while back. Thank you Louise! Also, sorry it’s taking me so long to do tags. I’m quite behind. But I’ll get to all of them! So anyway, getting to it.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the blog who tagged you and link back to them
- Your first book is the last book of the person who tagged you
- You have to follow the list of books that the person who tagged you gave you, and then you’re going to do something like “book 1 vs book 2”
- As soon as you have a winner, you choose seven more books and blogs to answer to this tag
Okay, well I’m not sure if these instructions are very clear, but you’ll get it once you see it done.
The winner of Louise’s tag was To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and the first book on her list is All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
I have not read either of these books. But I did read the summary of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and I do want to read it… eventually. So I’ll go with that.
The second book on the list is The Young Elites by Marie Lu.
Now this one, I’ve actually read. And I really loved it, so I’m going to pick it.
Book number three is Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon.
Another one I have not read. I don’t read that much contemporary in case you haven’t noticed. So TYE wins again.
Fourth book is The Selection by Kiera Cass.
Ugh. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may know I really hated The Selection. So once again… you guessed it, TYE wins!
Book five is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.
Yeah, haven’t read this one either. So TYE. Are you noticing a pattern?
Number six is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
Finally, another one I have read! Although I liked TYE more, so that one STILL wins. Jeez.
And the final book is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Okay, I loved TFIOS. I think this one wins out over TYE. Just barely. But I feel like since it got a more powerful emotional response out of me, it should win.
So there you have it! The winner is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Now for my list, I’m just going to pick the last 7 books I read. I have reviews for most of them, so you can just click on the titles if you’re interested.
- The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
- 1984 by George Orwell
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
- Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
