We’ll just pretend that the Pokémon Go craze isn’t over and that I’m not six or seven months late posting this tag.
Even when it was in its height I never got into Pokémon Go although two of my friends were obsessed with the game, and one of them still is. I guess when you nearly get into a car accident because of someone else playing the game when they should be focusing on the road it kind of loses its appeal for you. I was tagged by Grace at Kimmie.gg. Thanks so much for the tag Grace, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much.
- Other than mentioning the creator of the tag, Aentee at Read at Midnight, there are none. Just have fun and feel free to use Aentee’s images.
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
This seems like a really cliché answer but Harry Potter is the first series I picked up, the first series I fell in love with, and the series that really got me hooked on reading. I still love the books, and re-read them every year whenever I get a chance.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Asides from being an iconic classic I really love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the only classic that I’ve read which I’ve actually enjoyed. Having been required to read others I wasn’t interested in during high school kind of killed the genre for me.
There actually isn’t one. This seems like a cop-out answer for this question but there’s no book I can think of that I’ve lost interest in because it’s been everywhere. If a book sounds interesting I’ll add it to my to-read list regardless of whether it has thousands of reviews of just a handful.
The Girl at Midnight series by Melissa Grey
While reading The Girl at Midnight I picked up on a fair few aspects which reminded me of The Mortal Instruments series and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. There was a similar concept behind the world-building, similar plot points at times, and similar characters we were introduced to.
A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
I loved the first four books in the series, and I know I’ll love the fifth as well when I finally get around to it, but it’s well over 1000 pages long so it’s not going to be a quick read. I want to read A Dance of Dragons at some point, but at the moment I just have no desire to pick up a book that long.
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
Is there really any surprise that this book ended up as my answer for this question? Granted I did have to put A Conjuring of Light down to go to sleep because I had to get up early for work the following day, but if I hadn’t I would have stayed up all night reading because it was un-put-down-able.
Wylan and Jesper
Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo
I loved all the couples in the Six of Crows duology, but Wylan and Jesper were just my favourite of the lot. Every interaction between them was a favourite scene of mine to read, and even though their story is over I hope to see more from them in Leigh Bardugo’s future books.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
It does seem like I used the same book for two questions in a row, but honestly Crooked Kingdom is the perfect answer for this one. I couldn’t put it down; there were so many twists and turns, and I was constantly in awe of how Kaz managed to see so many steps ahead of everyone else.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
This is one of my all-time favourite series, and I think no matter how many additional instalments Marissa Meyer releases continuing the stories of Cinder and the Rampion crew it’s never going to be enough for me. I loved the Stars Above anthology, and can’t wait to get started on Wires and Nerve.
The Sin-Eater’s Daughter series by Melinda Salisbury
The first book in this series was a re-read for me but even so I was genuinely surprised that I enjoyed it the same amount as I did the first time I picked it up. After finishing The Sin-Eater’s Daughter I jumped straight into The Sleeping Prince and couldn’t put it down, if anything it was even better than the first book.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
Honestly it seems like everyone has read this series and I’m the last hold-out. People love The Mortal Instrument books, and I’ll admit I enjoyed the first three I read, but I still need to get around to re-reading them and then carrying on with this series. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it as much as everyone else seemed to.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Hufflepuff Edition by J.K. Rowling
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Bloomsbury are releasing four Hogwarts house themed editions. Being a Hufflepuff obviously that would be the version I would get, and the edition I am very likely to get when they’re released, in hardcover of course.
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
Normally I am not a fan of love triangles, I won’t say I hate them or go out of my way to avoid them or anything like that but they’re just not my favourite trope in YA books. Still The Love Interest sounds like it’s going to be an amazing exception. The book sounds beyond brilliant and the pre-release reviews are all already incredibly positive.
Every single book she has released so far has become an all-time favourite read of mine, and now that the Shades of Magic series has finished I am incredibly excited to see what V.E. Schwab comes out with next. Whatever it is it’s going to go to the top of my to-read and to-buy lists, and I’m positive it will be a five star read for me as well.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
Since the second I finished A Court of Mist and Fury I have been dying to discover what happens next for Feyre and Rhys and everyone else. As the third and last book in the trilogy, and especially after the cliffhanger the second one ended on, I have a lot of expectations for A Court of Wings and Ruin but I’m sure this book will more than meet them
