First off, I want to thank Sophie @ Blame Chocolate for nominating me for this. I love getting these book tags. They are so much fun!
I’ve been a little MIA from reviewing in the last week because I’m lollygagging finishing A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab. I adore this book trilogy and don’t want it to end. I’m desperate to find out how everything turns out but at the same time I don’t want to because that means it is over. Schwab got me really attached to these characters and I just don’t want to say goodbye. Sniffle.
The Harry Potter Book Tag was created by Trang and Lashaan @ Bookidote and all the graphics below belong to them.
A book you found the theme interesting, but you’d like to rewrite it
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. This is one of those books I wanted to adore. I felt like it had everything going for it. There was an entertaining plot, a variety of characters (bordering on too many), and the promise of violence and mayhem and deceit. What actually happened is nothing. Nothing what-so-ever of consequence for nearly the entire book. So much build up with so little pay off. I was livid when I finished it.
The first book in a series that got you hooked
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. This book, man. This book. I had mostly taken a break from reading when I picked this one up, only completing book a month or so. If that. Then I ran across The Bone Season. It sucked me in and I have re-read it probably six times. The third in the series comes out in March 2017 and I have already pre-ordered a signed copy. Love love love it.
A book you wish you could have right now
The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon. Bet you didn’t see that coming. Haha. The third book of Shannon’s The Bone Season series comes out March 2017. The second in the series, The Mime Order, came out in January 2015 so it has been a long wait.
A killer book. Both senses. Take it as you like
The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison. This is an amazing thriller/horror novel. I couldn’t put it down, cover to cover.
A book that you found really confusing
SeQuence (The Heart of the Ocean #1) by Lorraine M.L.M. Okay, I couldn’t come up with a book that genuinely confused me. So, I picked one that left me completely confused why anyone would like it. I mean, really. Why would anyone choose to read a book about a wussy girl who needs other people to take care of her and has no curiosity for life? TERRIBLE
Your spirit animal book
Nefertiti by Michelle Moran. Guys, I love Ancient Egypt. Specifically 18th dynasty New Kingdom. This book is about Nefertiti and the most infamous of all of the pharoahs, her husband Ankenaten. I could probably bore you for hours with facts on 18th dynasty pharoahs. Just fascinating.
A dark twisted book
24690 by A.A. Dark. This book is messed up. Violent rape, cannibalism, pain just for the sake of pain, sex slaves…it is definitely not for the feint of heart.
A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals to be more than it is
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting when I picked this up but it wasn’t what I got. This book ended up being far more than I thought it would be. Talk about exceeding expectations!
If you would like to do this tag, please feel free! I had fun coming up with the right books to fit. Thanks, everyone!
