Taylor Swift released her newest single, Me!, last night and I love it so much! To celebrate, I completed the Taylor Swift Book Tag created by Mari @ Musings of a Book Girl.
- Know somebody who loves Taylor? Tag them! If you don’t know of anybody though, that’s okay too, you should still do the tag!
- Link back to this post so Mari will get a notification that you did it and she can come see your answers! Also because crediting creators is nice.
- Feel free to use any of Mari’s graphics or make your own if you want!
TEARDROPS ON MY GUITAR
Book that always makes you cry
I’ve only read Second Chance Summer once, but it made me ugly cry like no other book. If I were to reread it, I know I would sob again. I’ll also throw out there that I cried while reading Morgan Matson’s debut, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, and even teared up during Save the Date. So yeah, I guess it’s just Morgan Matson that makes me cry.
Book with the prettiest cover
THERE’S SO MANY PRETTY COVERS!! HOW CAN I POSSIBLY CHOOSE JUST ONE??? I was going to choose my favorite cover out of the books I’ve read this year, but I just decided to start reading Her Royal Highness and oh wow is that cover gorgeous so I’ll go with that one.
Will and Tessa from The Infernal Devices have always been one of my favorite couples! I read this trilogy when I was in high school and Will was my ultimate book boyfriend. I am so excited for The Last Hours, where we’ll see them again and their kids!
Favorite coming-of-age story
Everything I read is pretty much a coming-of-age story in some way since I mostly read YA books. One of my faves is Save the Date, whose main character I was able to relate to more than any other character I have read about before. You can read my review of the book to see why I related to Charlie so much!
BACK TO DECEMBER
Biggest bookish regret
I think my biggest bookish regret is that I didn’t really start exploring other genres until I was a junior in high school. There’s so many great series out there that I could have been reading, such as the Percy Jackson books, when I was in middle school and the beginning of high school, but I stuck to rereading my favorites over and over. I wish I branched out more.
NEVER GROW UP
Favorite childhood book
I loved all of the Nancy Drew books so much as a kid! I read all of the originals and tons of the different spin-off series. One of my absolute favorites was the SuperMystery series where she and the Hardy Boys teamed up to solve mysteries around the world! I especially loved Secrets of the Nile because I shipped Nancy and Frank so much (before I even knew what shipping was) and they pretend to be newlyweds in this book as a cover—you could say this is where my love for the fake relationship trope began.
Favorite book with a red cover
Hmmmm nothing came to mind at first, but as I was looking at my bookshelves, my eyes landed on the Gallagher Girls series! This was the series that got me into reading YA and will always be a favorite…and the conclusion has a red cover!
WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER
Book you really wanted to love but couldn’t
For this prompt I went straight to Goodreads and looked at all of my one-star reviews. While I was there I came across Royally Lost, which I read back in 2015. I honestly don’t remember anything about it, but I love royal romances and I was traveling in Europe while I read this book…so for me to give it a one-star pretty much says it all.
Book featuring enemies to lovers
Enemies to lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes! Even though I read it years ago (and still need to read the sequel), The Wrath and the Dawn is one of my favorites and my go-to recommendation for fans of this trope!
SHAKE IT OFF
Book you couldn’t let go of
I’m going with Aurora Rising because I read it over the weekend and IT’S SO GOOD! I could not put this one down—like I wanted to skip work so I could keep reading—which hasn’t happened in a long time. I know this book is going to stick with me for a long time and I can’t wait for the sequel!
I DID SOMETHING BAD
My biggest bookish confession is probably that I tend to see the movie adaptation before reading the book. There’s plenty of books I’ve read before the movie released, but one of the biggest examples is that I saw all of the Harry Potter movies before I read any of the books.
Book/series you abandoned
I don’t really abandon series because I am SUCH a mood reader so if I’m not feeling something in the moment, I’ll set it aside and pick up it up again when I am in the mood for it. There’s also a lot of series that I’m not caught up with because the books released while I was in college…like the Throne of Glass series. I know I’ll finish it one day because even though there’s a lot of controversy over it in the book community, all of my high school friends read it and are constantly asking me if I’ve finished it yet whenever I see them.
Book you read when you feel vulnerable
Ooh this is an interesting prompt. I don’t have a specific book that I go to when I’m feeling vulnerable, but I will say I gravitate towards light, fluffy books. A few years ago I experienced a very traumatic event and I read Romeo & What’s Her Name that same day because I needed some kind of escape.
