Happy Valentine’s Day!
As per tradition, I’ve decided to complete the Valentine’s Day Book Tag to round out my Blogentine’s Day line-up. This tag was created by CC’s Books. Here are my answers:
- Stand Alone Book that You Love
I tried reading Eleanor and Park a long time ago, but couldn’t get past the first few pages. When I finally read it the whole way through, I absolutely loved it. I love how it captures the feelings of first love and has two really well developed main characters.
- Dystopian Book You Love
I didn’t go into this book with the highest expectation because I tried to read other books by Marie Lu and it didn’t work out. However, I really enjoyed Warcross and how it reflects our society today. While this book didn’t completely blow me away, I understand some of the hype surrounding it. I can’t wait for the next book!
- A Book You Love that No One Else Talks About
I picked this book up on a whim at my library and was shocked when I couldn’t put this book down. Torn Away follows a girl’s life after a deadly tornado sweeps through her town and she’s forced to relocate to a home with family that she doesn’t know. This book had a great message about family and really grabbed me from the first page. However, I feel like I haven’t really heard anyone talk about it online.
- Book Couple You Love
I wouldn’t say Alosa and Riden are one of my top couples by any means, but I really enjoyed their relationship in Daughter of the Pirate King. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this book, but I found myself really liking both Alosa and Riden as characters.
- Book that Other People Love, but You Haven’t Read Yet
I son’t much about this book other than hearing a lot of positive comments about it. It looks like a contemporary story with a little more of a serious tone, so I’ll have to check it out!
- A Book with Red on the Cover
The red dress on the cover also appears in the book, so I enjoyed seeing it on the cover!
- A Book with Pink on the Cover
I was lucky to receive an eARC of Bookish Boyfriends. While my feelings towards this book are mixed, I think the pink book on the front matches the book’s fun and fluffy story.
- You were given a box of chocolate. Which book boyfriend/girlfriend gave it to you?
Adrian brought Nova food in Renegades, so I think he would also be the type to give a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day, but he would be really shy about it.
- You are single on Valentine’s Day. What book do you read? What movie do you watch? What TV show do you watch?
I just started watching Drop Dead Diva on Netflix… and I’m hooked! This show perfectly balances interesting law story lines with the main character’s personal life. I have no problem watching a few episodes of this show in a row, so it would be a fun one to watch on Valentine’s Day.
- You are in a book store. All of a sudden you get shot with an arrow by cupid. What new release will you love?
I’ve been on a fantasy kick lately, so I added The Belles to my TBR quickly after reading the synopsis. I’m interested to see how to gray/color concept plays out and I’m interested in seeing if it stands out among other fantasy books centered on beauty.
