I was tagged in the Femme Friday book tag by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews and, as this was the next tag in my queue and it’s a Friday, it was the perfect opportunity to post it. Thank you so much for the tag Lauren, and everyone else should definitely check out her original post and her blog, and if you’re not following her already then what are you waiting for? Lauren is an amazing person, and she posts some brilliant reviews and discussions you won’t want to miss out on.
#FemmeFriday was created by Vicky at Books and Strips and you can learn more about it here. Basically it’s all about highlighting females in the bookish world—whether they be characters, authors, creators, etc. anyone really!
I was tagged on Valentine’s Day and now, weeks after February 14th, I’ve finally got around to completing it. Luckily I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day; for me it’s just another day and, after all, if you love someone do you really just pick one day to express that love?
Jesse at Books at Dawn tagged me in this challenge. Thanks so much for the tag Jesse, I really enjoyed this one. I have so many OTP’s and it was great fun sorting through them all for this tag, I ended up picking a different one for each question, because that was a lot more fun for me!
This tag was created by Anette Reads who is also to credit for the above image.
Now I have read some more books, and actually feel I have different answers for these questions, it is about time I get started on my backlog of tags and awards.
I was tagged by Isabella at Gryffindor Books. Thank you so much for the tag Isabella. It was great fun answering these; I really love tags like this, I find it’s a great way to get new book recommendations.
Title: Carry On
Author: Rainbow Rowell
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Release Date: October 6th 2015
Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.
Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story—but far, far more monsters.
