Taylor Swift Book Tag

Book Tag

We Are Never Getting Back Together– Pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with but then wanted to break up with.

Lover Revealed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #4)

So…I really enjoyed the first three books but then I reached this one. I couldn’t stand it and have since DNF’d the book and series. These books are all interconnected so you can’t just skip one or you’ll miss vital information to the series/characters.

Red– Pick a book with a red cover.

I cannot stress how amazing this book was. I loved it soooo very much!! You should definitely try it!

The Best Day– A book that makes you feel nostalgic!

Amelia Bedelia

Here’s my childhood! I read this series a lot growing up. I couldn’t get enough of the kooky Amelia Bedelia.

Love Story– Pick a book with forbidden love.

On the Line (Milwaukee Dragons, #1)

My new favorite bookish trope is single dad and nanny romances. EEK!!! I’m obsessed. Leave me some recs below!

The Great Hunt (Eurona Duology, #1)

Lord Alvi…..yes please! Don’t judge me lol

Innocent– Pick a book that someone ruined the ending for.

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

I was told about a character’s death in this one. It honestly ruined my entire vibes for this series. STOP THE SPOILERS!!!!

Everything Has Changed– Pick a character from a book that goes through extensive character development.

Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3)

Zsadist went through some MAJOR things. I admire his character so much.

Is it August yet?!?!? UGHHH…..it’s taking forever for me to get my hands on this!

Forever and Always– Pick Your favorite book couple.

The Hardest Fall

Dylan and Zoe were COUPLE GOALS!!! OMG I loved them so much!! I wish they had another book coming out 😦

Come Back, Be Here– Pick a book you least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much.

The Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Book Tag

I was tagged by Kris and Dani for this book tag. Be sure and click their names to see their blog posts. These are two of my favorites bloggers!!!


*Clicking each book photo will take you to its Goodreads page*

The struggle of getting started: A book or series you struggle to begin because of its size

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

I really want to try out this series but MAN! There’s like 150 books to this series lol!!! I may give it a shot next year….we shall see.

Cleaning out the closet: A book or series you want to unhaul.

Starflight (Starflight, #1)

I enjoyed the Alienated series by Melissa Landers but I’m just not interested in this series.

Opening windows and letting fresh air in: A book that was refreshing.

Scoring Wilder

This is one of the few books that the moment I finished reading it, I immediately wanted to start over and read it again. It was such a great book!!! Check out my review here.

Washing out the sheets: A book with a scene you wish you could rewrite.

Blood Type (Blood Type, #1)

The vault scene. BLEH!!! Couldn’t stand it and it almost ruined my vibes for the book that I was immensely enjoying. I just blocked this scene from my mind and forget it exists. Check out my review here.

Throwing out unnecessary knick knacks: A book in a series you didn’t think was necessary.

Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles, #4.5)

One of the novellas, Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky, felt completely unnecessary. I really didn’t get the purpose of having it as well as a few other novellas in this bind up.

Polishing doorknobs: A book that had a clean finish.

The Hardest Fall

The ending to this book was perfection!!!! I absolutely loved it!! The entire book was awesome but that ending…..YES! Check out my review here.

Reaching to dust the fan: A book that tried too hard to relay a certain message.

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)

This book tried WAY too hard at having a “unique/weird” female MC. It’s like they threw every single quirk at this girl and it just did not work. I really enjoyed the other books in this series but this one just didn’t work for me.

The tiring, yet satisfying finish of spring cleaning: A book series that was tiring but satisfying to get through.

The Crown (The Selection, #5)

While I liked the first three books A LOT, the last two books…..weren’t the most entertaining. The MC in the final two books was a difficult one. I’m not sure if that was intentional, like one of those hard to love characters but at the end you get why they are the way they are…..but that didn’t happen for me lol. I was glad to wrap up the series.

Justice League Movie Book Tag

Book Tag

I saw this over on Amber’s blog and just HAD to do it as well. I love me some Justice League and superheroes!!! This tag was created by Angelica and Rosie over at The Book Cover Girls.

The Rules:

  • Copy these rules onto your post
  • Mention creators of the tag: Angelica and Rosie @TheBookCoverGirls and link to the original post
  • Mention and thank the person who tagged you and link to their post
  • Answer all the questions
  • Since there were originally seven members in the Justice League, tag 7 people
  • Also, you can use the images provided, but don’t have to if you don’t want to
  • Have fun with it!

Batman: Your favorite antihero

Kaden from The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson. Kaden didn’t always make the right choices. He did things he thought were the best of the worst though. It didn’t always win him points but I absolutely loved his character. He meant well deep down at the end of the day.

Aquaman: A book or character that turned out to be better than you expected (because let’s be real, we did not expect Khal Drogo to make Aquaman cool)

The Hardest Fall by Ella Maise. I haven’t had the best of luck with new authors but this one was AWESOME. I will definitely add this author to my favorites!!! You can check out my review here.

Wonder Woman: Most badass female character (not necessarily in a physical sense)

Mor from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. LOVE this girl!!! She’s strong in ever sense of the word, mentally and physically!

Cyborg: Favorite science fiction novel

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. This series was awesome!!! It felt very unique to me even with them being retellings.

The Flash: A book you sped through

Blood Type by K.A. Linde. I read this in less than 24 hours. I think I read 68% in one sitting. You can check out my review here.

Superman: Saddest character death (although we all know there’s no way Superman is going to stay dead)

**Please be mindful and clearly label the answer with a SPOILER ALERT**

I won’t spoil it but there was a traumatic death in Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard that BROKE me. You’ll have to read the book to see who I’m talking about. You can check out my review here.

The NetGalley Tag

Book Tag

I was tagged by the awesome Danielle over at The Introverted BookNerd. I wasn’t really requesting books at the time her post went live so I waited until I was. NOW I’ve gone crazy with requesting. Someone send help lol!!

Rules:

  • Link back to the tag’s creator: Kourtni at Kourtni Reads.
  • Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
  • Answer the questions the best you can. If you don’t use NetGalley, you can substitute other sites or places where you get books!
  • Tag a few people to do this too!

AUTO-APPROVED:

Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they are about?

I’d have to go with Sarah J Maas. I feel like I’m obsessed with everything she writes. She’s definitely an auto-buy author.

REQUEST:

What makes you want to request a book on NetGalley?

Usually the cover is the first thing to catch my eye. Then I’ll check out the description and see what I think.

FEEDBACK RATIO:

Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?

I usually don’t review when I DNF. Usually because it would be such a negative post and I don’t want to offend anyone. Regardless of if I enjoyed the book, it’s still an amazing thing to have your book published. I don’t want to be the cause of someone not reading it who may enjoy it.

BADGES:

If you could create one badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?

Probably the Best Intentions badge lol!!! I would love to visit everyone’s blog every single day but it’s just hard to make time to do so. I’m trying to be better about it and thinking of devoting one day a week for visiting blogs.

WISH FOR IT:

What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?

Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson. I recently binged the Remnant Chronicles and fell absolutely head over heels in love.

2018 NET GALLEY CHALLENGE:

What was the last book that you received as an ARC that you reviewed? If you’ve never received an ARC, what’s the last book you reviewed?

The last book I received and posted a review for would be Bad Business by Nicole Edwards. You can check out my review here.

Book Blogger Insider Tag

Book Tag

I was tagged by Danielle over at The Introverted Booknerd. Dani is one of my favorite people so be sure to check out her post as well as the rest of her blog. She’s an amazing blogger!!!


Rules:
1. Answer the questions below
2. Credit the creator Jamie @ALittleSliceofJamie
3. Tag at least 5 people
4. Have fun!


1. Where do you typically write your blog posts?

On my desktop computer. I’m old school lol

2. How long does it generally take you to write a book review? 

Depends. Some just flow out and are super easy to write. Others take longer time to figure out my thoughts. I always write my reviews as soon as I finish. I at least get a rough draft down.

3. When did you start your book blog? 

I started blogging on July 28, 2017.

4. What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion? 

The pressure to stay relevant and to network. I feel like sometimes I curl up into my turtle shell and forget to communicate.

5. What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion? 

Discussing books of course. Finding people who like the same books/authors that you do isn’t as easy as it sounds. Plus if you read romance….you get “the face”. Romance readers know what I’m talking about.

6. What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far? 

I created a Walking Dead book tag that I had so much fun with. I’ll link it here.

7. What is your favorite type of blog post to write? 

Normally I would say book tags but lately it’s been my Star Studded Saturday posts. I love discussing the movies and shows I’m watching just as much as my book posts.

8. When do you typically write? 

Lately whenever the inspiration hits. I usually crank out a few in one sitting so that helps stockpile some.

9. Do you review every book you read? 

I usually don’t on the DNF ones unless I have a lot to say about why I quit them.

10. How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby? 

As I mentioned earlier, I write my reviews the second I finish a book. I got to get all my thoughts out while the feels are fresh lol!

11. When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book? 

I refuse to mention this again lol.

12. How often do you post? 

I’m working on posting every day with the exception of Sunday.

This or that book tag

Book Tag

I was tagged by Kris over at Boston Book Reader. Be sure to check out her post and blog! She’s an amazing friend and a great blogger!!

Questions:

Reading on the couch or on the bed?

I’m going with couch because I lay down on the bed while reading and it always gives me a crick in my neck. OUCH!

Male main character or female main character?

I read so many with female MC, that I’m going to go with male MC to mix it up!

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Depends honestly…..so many snacks cause messes/stickiness/etc. so I usually don’t snack while reading.

Trilogies or quartets?

The longer the series the better….if I love the books that is lol. I love staying with my favorites as long as possible!

First person point of view or third person point of view?

I don’t have a preference!!!

Reading at night or in the morning?

I’m not a morning person by ANY means so going with night time!!! My preference is afternoon though lol!

Libraries or bookstores?

For my favorites….bookstores. For everyday use…libraries!! I don’t have a lot of money rn so my library is my best friend.

Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

CRY!! I’m a sucker for a book that makes me cry. Love books that bring out that strong of emotion.

Black book covers or white book covers?

Tough question…..I’m going with white. It makes things pop, which I love!!!

Character driven or plot driven stories?

Can’t I have both!??!!? Sigh lol! I’ll go with character driven. I feel I can overlook a lacking plot if I love the cast.

Currently Reading Book Tag

Book Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Dani over at The Introverted Book Nerd!! Thanks so much for the tag girl!! So sorry it took me so long to put it up! This tag was created by Charly Reynhorse on Youtube.

How many books do you usually read at once?

Just one. My little brain can’t handle reading more than one book at a time.

Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?

Not unless I lose it lol!

Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

On my nightstand. Gotta keep it close by in case the mood to read strikes me.

What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

I’d say in the afternoon, unless I have something going on. Otherwise, evening time 🙂

How long do you typically read in one sitting?

My eyes give me issues when I read for long periods of time so I say I read anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Sometimes longer bouts….sometimes less. Just depends on how my eyes feel that day.

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?

I immediately take the dust jackets off to read. However, when I finish reading for the day, I put it back on. I used to leave it off but the dust jacket tends to get messed up/lose its shape when it’s not on the book.

What position do you mainly use to read?

In the recliner. I try to read in bed but it really hurts my neck.

Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

I really don’t. I can’t concentrate with a ton of noise so there’s no need in carrying a book with me to most places.

How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?

It depends on my mood really. I try to update it maybe twice a day if I’m continually reading that book throughout the day. I also notice I never include my feelings/thoughts when I update. May start doing that!
