I was tagged for this by the wonderful Lori @ The Reading Fairy back in May for this, and I keep putting off writing this post. I don’t know why though: these prompts are PERFECT and May, the creator of the tag did an amazing job with everything!! Anyways, here we go!
- Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post.
- Link to the original creator: May @ Forever and Everly! Please note that she made the artwork/graphics, if using them.
- Match books with the given prompts.
- Tag however many people as wanted!
- Copy-paste the rules and list of prompts.
Picking one is WAY too difficult so I’ll narrow it down to these two: Tweet Cute, by Emma Lord, and The Silvered Serpents, by Roshani Chokshi. Tweet Cute is an adorable, sweet, warm and lovely ya rom-com that is just fun to read. The Silvered Serpents (my review) is an intense, engaging, and overall incredible sequel to The Gilded Wolves (which is another of my favorites from this year).
The Priory of the Orange Tree, by Samantha Shannon is just incredible. The author creates worlds, languages, and histories that took a lot of time to fully understand. The book is so long, and the plot is so interesting throughout.
I just can’t believe how much the author created. She created an entire world with different religions, languages, and wrote about conflicts dating back centuries. The book is just incredible.
For this, I have an entire series: The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birsdall. These books are funny, and interesting, and have the most amazing characters!! I love these books so much, and I feel like everyone should read the books.
Is this saying that I didn’t hate Luke? I mean, he was a hero (the hero, if you know what I mean). And his character ark was incredible. But Family, Luke. You promised. And that’s on that.
Yes, you are seeing that correctly. I did not think that I was going to like the Percy Jackson books at all. I tried reading The Lightning Thief in 3rd grade, and I was 1. scared, 2. didn’t like it and 3. couldn’t even finish it. Then, 2 or so years later, my dad was reading the books to my sister, and I overheard it a little, and thought it sounded good, so I read on my own and caught up to where they were, and then kept going like that for the whole series.
Now, Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors, and I love the Percy Jackson books so much!!
This prompt is just spot on, okay? I mean, a book that will always feel like home? May did such an incredible job with these!!
Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick is a book that will always feel like home. I would love to visit Pumpkin Falls, to spend the rest of my life in Lovejoy Books! I also really need to read the latest book in the series though…
The DeLaineys are such a fun family, and the siblings are all so supportive of each other, and also realistic. There are so many books that I could put here though, and I think I’ll make an entire post because there are so many books with amazing sibling relationships!
I might have spent a little time sobbing in my tent in the early hours of the morning clutching my kindle, after thinking it would be a good idea to start my morning with The Silvered Serpents, by Roshani Chokshi.
And when I finished the book, I was honestly terrified. When I finished the book, I couldn’t believe that it was over, because it seemed like I’d read it in an instant. Time really did freeze when I read this book.
I love The Mark of Athena, and I would totally be marooned on an island with this. But could I also have the rest of the series please?
Oh Jason. I’m truly sorry that you’re legacy is mostly consumed by the fact that you were once knocked out by a brick and that you tried to eat a stapler when you were two. But also, it’s really hilarious.
ANYWAYS, I would get hit with a brick if I could read the third and final book in the Gilded Wolves trilogy. Unfortunately, the title hasn’t been announced, and the cover hasn’t been announced, which makes me want the book even more. But yeah. That’s my most anticipated release for the next few years.
I’d never even heard of this book, but my friend lent me a copy of Dress Codes for Small Towns, by Courtney Stevens, and I really loved it!!
The humor, the sarcasm, the rediculous names for baked goods: all of it just makes for one hilariously funny book. And again, there are so many books I could put here: I’m just going to do one for now.
My mom first read the Little House books to me when I was really little, and up until about 4th grade, they were my very favorite books. I reread a few of them a few months ago, and there is definitely some problematic stuff in there, but I think that the series is a really fascinating way to look into what life was like a long time ago. The stories are also so fun to read!
May. Why are you doing this to me. Making me think about that cursed stick. But onto a book that I was afraid to reach the end of:
I went into this post telling myself that I would not repeat any books, but this book is just so perfect. I listened to the 25 hour long audiobook over the course of 2 months, so when I was nearing the end, I was so immersed in the whole world, and so invested in what was happening, I was really nervous to reach the end, to see what would happen.
First off, who hates Reyna. Because Reyna is amazing and no one can tell me otherwise.
I don’t exactly think that everyone hates this book, I just think that it is unpopular among the PJO fandom. But I really loved Blood of Olympus, and was actually really impressed, and that it was a great finale to the series. Also, solangelo folks. solangelo.
Percabeth is an will always be my favorite romance. And how their relationship evolves over the course of the five books, from angry name calling, (Seaweed Brain, Wise Girl) to affectionate nicknames, (Seaweed Brain, Wise Girl). And of course, we can’t forget the best underwater kiss of all time.
And we can even thank Aphrodite. After all, she did once promise to make Annabeth’s love life interesting, and she certainly delivered.
Everyone! Because I feel like so many people have done the tag and have been tagged for it. So if you want to, you should do it!
This was so much fun to do!! It was hard for me not to just put Percy Jackson and The Penderwicks for every single prompt, but I managed. I hope you liked reading this, because I loved writing this!
