Four months into 2021, and I am doing my first tag of the year! Yeah, I know apologies are due. All of you amazing people have tagged me for so many amazing tags, and I love you for that, but I am really sorry that I wasn’t able to do them. I stopped doing tags and awards completely in December last year, as I felt that my blog was becoming flooded with them. But I have decided to start posting tags once in a while from now on. So I found this tag at Living, Loving and Reading, and I have had Julie and the Phantoms on my Netflix watchlist since ages (I really should watch it soon), so I thought, why not?
- Link back to the original post (and also Sarah’s booktube account)!!
- Thank whoever tagged you!!
- Answer the prompts!!
- Tag some friends to share the awesomeness!!
- Go watch Julie and the Phantoms on Netflix (and sing every song like it’s your last performance on stage)!!
I just got this as part of my birthday book haul, and I have also recently discovered my love for novels set in space (thanks to the Aurora cycle) so Skyward by Brandon Sanderson is pretty high up on my TBR.
This was my first Christie book, and also my first crime novel. My father, who was a big Christie fan at the time, kept recommending this to me, but I was a little reluctant because this was something completely new to me. But it turned out to be so good, and it still remains one of my favourite crime novels.
Yeah, I was completely in the KOTLC zone then, and I think I read all the books by September, and then Unlocked got released in November, but I got to read it in January.
Yeah, I don’t speak about this a lot nowadays, but there was a time when I was totally fascinated by the HUGE twists in Jefferey Archer books, and Nothing Ventured is quite a favourite of mine.
Ha! You didn’t think I would write an entire post without mentioning SoC, did you? Anyway, I have always said that one of the major reasons I love the Six Of Crows duology is because it is really fast-paced and full of action. I mean, there aren’t many of the classic ‘combat’ scenes as such, but aren’t Kaz’s schemes a full-fledged war by themselves?😉 I will leave you to ponder on that.
Another KOTLC book! The entire series basically has pretty much the same characters, so my answer for this one would be the entire Keeper Of the Lost Cities series.
We love you Dex! You are the best friend there ever is!
I think I fell into a slump in the beginning of March, but somewhere in the middle I started reading Aurora Rising, and it got me out of my reading slump!
The Aurora Cycle is once again my answer! I have always said that the major reason this duology has me impressed is because of its amazing characters.
*spends half an hour staring into the book shelf before going with the one she had already thought of*
This was a very tough decision, believe me. (I am so sorry Kal, I know your face looks gorgeous on the cover, but I didn’t want all these people thinking I have become obsessed with the Aurora Cycle, which I actually have, but anyway I love the Burning cover, and I am so sorry not for choosing you).
I know there is this weird golden circle, some medal or something, in the image, but that is not there in the paperback copy that I have, and yeah, the book looks so much better without it. Also, I still haven’t read this, and I need to read it soon.
Uhh…I really can’t decide as such. There’s Kaz-Inej from SoC, Laia-Keenan from An Ember In the Ashes (Yeah, they seem a better fit than Laia-Elias), oh and Nova-Adrian from Renegades.
Nah, I really don’t have an answer to this, sorry!
Look, I am not the kind of person who cries after the end of most books. It takes a LOT for a book to affect me so much, as to make me cry. So I am not blaming the books, I am blaming myself. I might have been close to tears in a couple of books, but that has not happened recently, so I don’t really remember.
Marcus from AEITA. That guy disgusts me so much that I love hating him.
I had got goosebumps while reading this. I am not a big fan of the horror genre in general, and even the smallest think spooks me out, so its no big deal actually.
Since I have not seen many people do this tag, I am going to tag some of my friends :
Ahaana @Windows To Worlds
Ashmita @the fictional journal
April @ booked till midnight
Nehal @Books and Words
Madeline @ The bookish mutant
Have you seen Julie And The Phantoms? Or have you listened to these songs? What about the books I mentioned…have you read any? Let me know in the comments!
