The Valentines Day Book Tag

Yeah, I know Valentine’s Day is gone. But honestly, if you were expecting me to do this on time, you don’t know me very well. I actually have a couple of tags and a couple of reviews backed up that I just haven’t found the time to do. Soon, hopefully.

Anyway, I was tagged to to this by Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek. Thank you so much Heather for tagging me. You can check out her blog, it’s cool. And now, onto the tag!


1.) Stand Alone Book You Love

25480342

I’ve read a few great stand-alones, but the most recent and the first to come to mind is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I have a full review of this beautiful little book, if you want to read more of my thoughts on it.

2.) Dystopian Book You Love

2767052

Even after all this time (and many, many dystopians under my belt), I think The Hunger games is still my favourite. This is the series that really got me into YA literature and it will always be special to me. Plus, it’s awesome!

3.) A Book That You Love But No One Else Talks About

artemis_fowl_first_edition_cover

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this series is SO underrated and it deserves to be talked about more. Go read Artemis Fowl!

4.) Favorite Book Couple

Feyre and Rhys.

5.) Book That Other People Love But You Haven’t Read Yet

20983362

There’s a long list of those. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken is on example. Or The Lunar Chronicles. I’ve read Cinder, but not the rest of them. And many others, really. There are a lot of popular books that I haven’t read yet. So many books, so little timeeeeee!

6.) A Book With Red on the Cover

29845906

I loved this book so much! Keep an eye out for my review which should (hopefully) come up soon. It was brilliant. I can’t wait for the next one!

7.) A Book With Pink on the Cover

6325285

The German (original) edition of Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. I’m currently (slowly) making my way through it. I don’t know why the cover is pink and not red, but there you have it.

8.) You were given a box of chocolate what fictional boyfriend/ or girlfriend would given them to you.

RHYYSSSS! Or Kaz Brecker from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

Rhys by taratjah and Kaz by Coralie Jubénot

9.) You are Single on Valentines Day. What Book would you read? What TV show would you watch? What Movie would you watch?

Well, to be honest I’m not that fussed about Valentine’s Day. Like… if you have a SO, then sure that’s great. Celebrate Valentine’s Day. But if you don’t, then it’s just another day really. It’s not special to me in any way. So I have no answer for this question. I would read whatever my current read is and watch whatever I felt like. For example, this Tuesday, I watched Life of Brian with my friend (Monty Python is everything).

10.) You are in the Book Store. All of a Sudden you get shot with an arrow by Cupid. What New Release will you love?

27883214

Oh boy. This sort of implies I’m aware of recent releases. Although, I was in Waterstones a couple weeks back and I saw this gorgeous hardcover of Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I nearly bought it, but there was also a gorgeous hardcover of Nevernight and I’d heard more about that one, so I ended up buying it in the end. Still, I’ve read some amazing reviews of Caraval as well, so if I found it again, I would definitely buy it.

I tag you, yes YOU to do this. Because our love for books is equal all year round, so who cares if Valentine’s Day has passed, right?

Bookish Holiday Wishlist – Top Ten Tuesday

Bookish Holiday Wishlist – Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “holiday gift guide freebie”. I chose to share with you my top 10 books on my (very long) wishlist. This is going to be difficult because there are a lot, and I mean a lot of books on my wish list. My bookish amazon wishlist currently has 129 items on it and that’s not including additional copies of books that I already have that I really want. So let’s just say this list is the tip of the iceberg. These are the books that I really hope to get soon.

As a little aside, last week I announced I’d be doing a Q&A. I haven’t forgotten, I’ll probably have that post up by the end of the week (I hope!). In the mean time, feel free to send me more questions here.

Alright, I’ll stop rambling now and get on with it.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

2913377

I really want to read this book. As a lover of fantasy, I feel like this is one of those books I have to read.

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

25558608

I recently read An Ember in the Ashes (review here) and I loved it. So now I really want to read the second one. Plus, it’s pretty. So I want it.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

28962906

This sounds like such a cool, and kind of messed up thriller. It’s right up my alley. I want to read it.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

29845906

The description I read for this book is so vague, I honestly have very little idea what to expect from it. But is sounds very ominous and dark and also, look at that pretty raven on the cover.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

23299512

Earlier this year, I fell in love with Schwab’s writing and this one sounds so freaking amazing, I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

the wrath and the dawn

I have wanted to read this book since I first heard of it more than a year ago. I still don’t own it and I still haven’t read it. Why? I don’t know. But I want it.

Fantastic beasts and Where to Find Them

30065028

The film was AWESOME, guys. I adored it. I am so, so, SO excited for  the other ones. I can’t wait. I literally cannot wait. So of course I want the screenplay. Also, look at this beauty! Just look at it.

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

21396155

It’s an Aladdin retelling. I have never read an Aladdin retelling. I love retellings. It’s blurbed by Sarah J. Maas. And it’s pretty. All very valid reasons for why I want this.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

18001518

This series is really beautiful. Both inside and outside. And I want to finish it.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

12954620

I hear so many great things about this series. I need to read it!

These are 10 of the books that I want the most. But if you’re curious to see more of the books that I want, or you know someone who you think might enjoy the same books as I do and want to buy them a nice Christmas gift, you can check out my Amazon wishlist.
