I was tagged by Josie at Josies Book Corner to do the Book Courtship Tag; love her and her blog! This tag looks like a lot of fun, so let’s get started! FYI: All will be linked to Goodreads.
Phase One: Initial Attraction: A book you bought because of the cover
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. I haven’t had the chance to read the book yet, but as soon as I seen this book cover I knew I had to own the book. It’s so pretty and the next book in the series has a pretty amazing book cover too!
Phase Two: First Impressions: A book you got because of the summary
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King. The cover wasn’t that appealing to me, but the summary of the book was. Here is the summary from Goodreads:
“Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything. So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?”
Phase Three: Sweet Talk: A book with great writing
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom. I am a HUGE fan of Mitch Albom and I loved this book so much. I loved the way that it was written and it felt unique to me and the style made it so easy to read and want to continue to read. The story itself was so great!
Phase Four: First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pursue the rest of the series
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Before reading The Hunger Games, I wasn’t always big into reading. I definitely wasn’t into reading things that weren’t non-fiction. This book made me want to continue the series and it made me appreciate all kinds of books and jump started my love for reading again, especially series books!
Phase Five: Late night phone calls: A book that kept you up all night long
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. This book had me up until 4AM. It was one of the most amazing books I’ve read in a long time. I was up until 3AM reading it and then I was up an hour after just thinking about the book, the characters, and doing a blog post about it! Highly recommend this book!
Phase Six: Always on my mind: A book that you could not stop thinking about
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Since I can’t choose Everything, Everything again (LOL!), I am going with Red Queen. I loved this book SO MUCH! I still think about it now and again. It was such an great read and I can’t wait for more!
Phase Seven: Getting Physical: A book in which you love the way it feels
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. This was kind of a weird question, lol. After going and feeling all of my books, I decided to go with Simon vs. It’s rough on some places and smooth on others and that kind of how the book felt as I was reading it. I also really love this book so much and it needed to be included in this post. 😛
Phase Eight: Meeting the Parents: A book in which you would recommend to your friends and family
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. I love this book so much. The story was so great. The characters were great. The love these sisters have for each other were amazing. I highly recommend this book.
Phase Nine: Thinking about the future: A book or series that you know you’ll re-read many times in the future
The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. This series was PERFECT. I loved every single book and all of the characters. It had me laughing, crying, getting angry, I felt every emotion reading this series. I know I will continue to read it over and over again. I also can’t wait to get my nephew into reading these books and Percy Jackson and The Olympians.
Phase Ten: Share the love! Here’s who I am tagging . . .
I tag every single one of you, because I want to see your answers! This is a really fun tag and I think you all should do it if you haven’t already! Also, please link me to your posts if you do it! I want to see your answers! GO GO GO!
Due to unfortunate circumstances, the boyfriend had an entire weekend off with me! It’s so rare that this happens, but it’s been nice. Our car needed fixed, so he’s been trying to fix it and the person that was supposed to fix it on Friday couldn’t finish it and then he never showed up Saturday or today. UGHHHH! But, we’ve had the entire weekend off together and that never really happens.
Also, do to this situation…I barely got much reading done! We’ve been watching Orange Is The New Black and Orphan Black all weekend. Oooops! I do plan to finish A Court of Thorns and Roses today as I only have 100 pages left to go. I also plan to at some point today start my book club book (The Shock of the Fall). I haven’t started that and the month is almost half over, oops!
Anyway, I should probably get back to reading ACOTAR! I really want to finish it soon, so I can start my next book. I kind of feel a reading slump coming on though and that’s not a good sign. 😦
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Bye! ❤
