Thank you Ann @ AnnTheBookMaster for tagging me to do the Seasons of Book Blogging Book Tag, which was originally created by Jordyn @ J.Bookish back in November 2015. Also I hope everyone appreciates my extreme effort to not use Sarah J Maas characters for literally every answer because let me tell you it is a struggle.
The rules are:
- Thank the creator and the person who tagged you
- Begin with the month you were tagged and move forward from there
- State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month
- Tag new people!
- Have fun
So, here is the Seasons of Book Blogging Book Tag!
September, the time students go back to school. Pick a book you read for school you actually enjoyed | The Book Thief
So this was one of my summer reading books in high school and I absolutely loved it. The fact that it’s told from the perspective of death is so interesting and even though it was sad it was just such an amazing story, especially if you love books.
October is the time for Halloween. Pick one character that you would love to dress up as for Halloween | Nesta Archeron
So I have to pick Nesta because me, Emily @ EmiesNook and Jess @ StarsWhoListen have a plan to dress as all 3 Archeron sisters together at some point and I’m so excited to do it because I love Nesta and her fiery personality and “takes no shit” attitude. Now all I need is a Cassian to accompany me.
November is the month we are reminded to be thankful. Choose one book you’re grateful for having read and give a shout out to the person who recommended it | Twilight
I know what you’re thinking…Twilight? Really? But let me clarify why. My friend Natalie forced me to read this the summer before 8th grade and this was a big jumping off point for my love of reading. I’d always loved to read but Twilight was special for me and one of the first things I’d ever hard core “fangirled” over.
December is the time for friends and family to celebrate and give gifts. Name one book you would give as a gift | Fangirl
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a book I have given as a gift and recommended to many people. The reason it is the perfect book to recommend is because if you are a real bookworm and love to read, then you will on some level see a piece of yourself in Cath which makes it such a special book. Plus Rainbow Rowell is such an amazing writer that you can’t not love this book.
January begins a new year. Name a reading resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not |Yearly Classic
For the past few years I’ve tried to make myself read one classic book a year. So far I’ve gotten through the Odyssey and Wuthering Heights and this year I’m trying to make it through the Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes. Now that is A LOT of stories so no way I’ll finish it this year but I have read a fair number of them so far so I think it’s going well.
February is the month for love. Name your favorite book relationship | Percabeth
Ok so this is a difficult question for me because I feel like I have so many OTPs. But in an effort to not use Sarah J. Maas characters for every answer I’ve decided to go with Percy and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan I love percabeth with all my heart and they were the first couple I actively sought out fan fiction for so I could continue their story.
March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you’ve never read it | The Infernal Devices
The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare was so amazing. I loved every second of it and wish I could read it again for the first time over and over because it’s never as good as the first time. The characters were so amazing and I loved the historical setting with the elaborate dresses and carriages. And there were so many twists and amazing, action packed scenes that I wish I could reread the first time again.
April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations | Red Queen
So it’s not that I didn’t like this book, I thought it was good. But after all the hype I was expecting it to be amazing and it just didn’t do it for me. I liked it but I just never really got that connected to the characters
May is the month when the flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you | Starcrossed
This book I found when I was looking for anything to read right when I got my kindle and was flying through books, some great and some horrible. I found this series by Josephine Angelini and it was such a pleasant surprise. Not only did I love the Greek mythology in it but I also loved the Nantucket setting since it referenced places I had been.
June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre that you like to read when you just need to check out | Contemporary
Sometimes you just need a really adorable contemporary, fluffy love story and nothing is a better break from the world than that perfect love story where boy meets girl and after some mild, mid story drama, they live happily ever after together.
July is the time to celebrate your independence. Name a book that made you see fireworks | Throne of Glass
Throne of Glass was another pleasant surprise for me. I avoided it for so long because all I’d ever seen of it on Goodreads was that horrible original cover with that awful little excerpt on the back. But after watching PolandBananasBooks RAVE over it I finally picked it up and the rest is history as it is now my favorite series and Sarah J Maas is my favorite author.
July is also my birth month but I have no idea what the best present I’ve ever gotten was. However once for Easter, the Easter Bunny fulfilled my life dream by leaving 2 baby bunnies for me so that was a real highlight for my 5 year old self.
August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing | Kara Thomas
So I have not yet read Kara Thomas’s book, The Darkest Corners, but I saw her speak with Sarah J Maas in Pennsylvania last spring and after listening to her speak I really think she has a lot more to offer and that she’s going to be big.
