Ok so I originally saw this on booklayerReads blog and thought it looked super fun so here it goes. This is the Book Courtship tag!
Initial Attraction: A book you bought because of the cover | Red Queen
Although I had heard of Red Queen, I had no idea what it was about and simply wanted it because it looked so pretty. I mean that crown dripping blood? Gorgeous. I mean how could you not want to read this?
First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary | The Bricks That Build the Houses
I was in a used bookstore when I found this, so naturally the YA books were very limited. I grabbed this one off the shelf because it was bright pink and read the description which read
Becky, Harry and Leon are leaving London in a fourth-hand Ford with a suitcase full of stolen money, in a mess of tangled loyalties and impulses. But can they truly leave the city that’s in their bones?
It sounded very exciting, and thus far it’s been a lot slower than I was expecting, as right now it’s slowly detailing the lives of all theses characters who slowly begin to interconnect so hopefully we’ll get to the exciting stolen money and drama soon.
Sweet Talk: A book with great writing | Fangirl
Anything by Rainbow Rowell has great writing in my mind. I love her books because there’s just something about the way she writes that captivates me. I’ve said this before but in my mind her and John Green touch on similar subject matter and write along similar lines but for some reason the way Rowell does her dialogue and weaves her story just captivates me so much more. Fangirl especially is a book I could read over and over and never get tired of.
First Date: A book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series | The Hunger Games
While this applies to most series I’ve read I’d have to say The Hunger Games because that was really the first YA series I picked up for fun in high school after what I can only call my longest reading slump ever (post twilight in 8th grade that lasted for about 2 years). After reading the Hunger Games I had to have Catching Fire and stayed up all night after junior prom to finish it.
Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night | Catching Fire
Again, this has been a lot of books for me, since if somethings good I do not want to put it down. But since I just mentioned it, I’ll say Catching Fire. At my post prom party when everyone else went to bed, I stayed up until 4 in the morning finishing Catching Fire because I HAD to know what happened. No shame.
Always On Your Mind: A book you could not stop thinking about | A Court of Mist and Fury
A Court of Mist and Fury is responsible for my biggest book hangover EVER. Honestly it has been over 4 months since it came out and I’ve read plenty of other amazing books since then, INCLUDING Empire of Storms, and STILL I cannot get A Court of Mist and Fury off my brain. I think it may be my favorite SJM book of all time, which I can’t believe I’m saying because I LOVE Heir of Fire.
Getting Physical: A book you love because of the way it feels | The Complete Sherlock Holmes B&N Edition
This is probably the most beautiful book I own. It’s huge, leather bound, has the fancy build in bookmark, and the edges of the pages are GOLD. Plus the cover and spine are both gorgeous and it looks so nice on the shelf. I just love holding it, and it’s usually my subject for all book photo shoots.
Meeting the Parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends | Eleanor and Park
I love Rainbow Rowell and I love Eleanor and Park. I think it’s such an amazing coming of age story that also touches on some really deep and important issues such as bullying, self identify, poverty and abuse, just to name a few. Honestly I feel like this book should be read in high school, since at least for me in 9th grade we only read “coming of age” stories and this one is amazing and I have already recommended it to at lease 2 people.
Thinking About the Future: A book or series you know you will reread many times | Throne of Glass Series
It’s already been reread so many times so I know it’s going to happen again. I feel like every time I pick it up I discover some new little detail that just ties the story together later on the road and the ups and down of Celaena’s life and her struggles are so amazing to read every time. It may be fantasy but it’s a beautiful story and I’ll never get tired of it.
