I haven’t done many book tags in the past but I really want to join in on the fun now that I have wayyy more free time on my hands. But before diving in on the other lovely book tags I’ve seen out there on other AMAZING blogs, I wanted to do one following the theme of my favourite classic. Which is also the theme of this blog.
You can guess it, right?
An Alice in Wonderland Book Tag!
- Give credit and tag the original creator (Down the Rabbit Hole)
- Answer all the prompts
- Tag 3 others!
- But most importantly, have fun!!
Alice: a dreamy book that you couldn’t stop thinking about
Oh boy, I had to start with my protagonist, the girl who dreams and thinks like no one else in her society. This is a hard one.
If I had to choose just one, it’d have to be Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
Sometimes late at night when I can’t sleep or when I’m deep into a book slump, this book just pops into my head and reminds me there are wonderful stories out there that I have loved so dearly. Oh, and the forbidden romance always tugs at my heartstrings!
White Rabbit: a book you raced through and couldn’t put down
There are few and far between moments that I find myself going through a book in one sitting. So the ones that I do, especially ones that I absolutely adored, stick out a lot. Ah, how does one choose?
But for this one, I’d give it to Love, Life and the List by Kasie West. From the first pages of chapter one, I was hooked, namely because it was about a girl who was in love with her best friend. Uh, yeah! That’s totally my kind of romance trope. There went my day but I was ever so happy to have given it to such a lovely story.
Queen of Hearts: a book you just couldn’t like no matter how hard you tried
This may come as a shock to you but…this one goes to a very popular book/series. I have a feeling you’ve heard of it before. (P.S. please don’t hate – it’s just my honest opinion)
Yep, that’s right. It’s Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. In my defense, I really tried to since so many others loved the book and following ones in the series. I have had many friends try to persuade me to try again. At the moment, I don’t know if I’ll give it another go, but I do remember the protagonist pissed me off too much.
Cheshire Cat: an unexpected book that continued to surprise you
I haven’t read anything by Julie Kagawa in a long time, mostly because her most recent series just didn’t pique my interest. So getting early access to Shadow of the Fox was an honour but I was skeptical about how I’d feel for the book.
Well. Let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised with the lush culture and pacing of the story. Now it’s one of the books I recommend the most since its publication!
Mad Hatter: a book you’d want to reread over and over again
I must say, I’d have to put my favourite book of all time for this one. The Host by Stephenie Meyer never gets old for me, no matter how many times I’ve reread it.
There’s always something there that still surprises each time. Like a wow, how did I not see/make this connection before? or a omg, it’s still SO good. It’s somewhat of a guilty pleasure for me now, considering there’s judgment sometimes when I say it’s my favourite book in the post-Twilight world.
But I have no shame in declaring my love for this book ❤
Knave of Hearts: a book with a beautiful cover
Regardless of substance and how much I liked/disliked a book, there are a number of books out there that have just the most gorgeous looking cover. I know, they tell you not to judge a book by its cover, but let me tell you, it sure is a good marketing ploy to attract a wayward glance or two on the shelves.
For me, there are just so many books to choose from, so I’ve narrowed it down to 3.
Aren’t each of these just so pretty in their own way?
Caterpillar: a book for a leisurely summer day or cozy winter night
A book I’d cuddle up with sometimes does depend on the outside weather. So I’ve picked 2 books, one for the summer and one for the winter. (Yes, my mood very much decides for me what I want to read, even if I had a well thought out plan just right before!)
Summer: Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I love the summery atmosphere that Morgan always brings to her books! I had the pleasure of meeting her earlier this summer and heard all about her down to earth inspirations for stories.
Winter: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
In the winter, I love to cozy up under a warm blanket with a cup of hot tea next to me. With shorter days and earlier darkness, it’s fitting to read about dark worlds with shifting heroes and villains. What better than a Victoria Schwab book?
