The Valentine’s Day Book Tag


Of course since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow I’ll be doing this tag! As you all know I’m not big on romances in books or romance books so I will try and do my best!

I found this on As Told by Tina and the original creator of this tag is CC’s Books.

1.) Stand Alone Book You Love

I gave this book 5 stars because it’s just so unique, silly, and entertaining! Highly recommended by the way…..

2.) Dystopian Book You Love

Image result for the knife of never letting go

This is an absolutely amazing book. Period. Full of action, adventure, and heartbreak (seriously YOU WILL CRY). This is dystopian mixed with sci-fi as the people of Earth moved onto this planet.

3.) A Book That You Love But No One Else Talks About

Image result for kingdom of ash and briars

A fantastic book with it’s own plot and world building but also contains four fairy tale retellings too. I thought this book was so interesting and it definitely needs to be talked about more, such an underrated book!

4.) Favorite Book Couple

Nemesis & Tyrus

It really is rare that I enjoy romances in YA books let alone slowly pine away waiting for the characters to love each other. In the case with this book it was both, I really liked that it was a slow burn romance and Nemesis and Tyrus really are perfect for each other….


5.) Book That Other People Love But You Haven’t Read Yet

Image result for red rising

Of course there are many popular books that everyone has read and loved that I have yet to get to but one I’m really excited to get to is “Red Rising” especially since I’m sure I’ll love it!

6.) A Book With Red on the Cover

Image result for cruel beauty

I have this on my shelf and it really is gorgeous, however, I wasn’t a HUGE fan of “Crimson Bound” by Rosamund Hodge so we will see if I actually enjoy this one…..

7.) A Book With Pink on the Cover

Image result for rebel belle

Another one on my TBR that sounds interesting enough even if the cover is off-putting for me, it makes it look too fluffy (I know it really isn’t) but I’m still confident I’ll enjoy this book.

8.) You were given a box of chocolate what fictional boyfriend/ or girlfriend would given them to you.

I don’t really do book boyfriends all that much but I’ll go with either Kell from “A Daker Shade of Magic” or Victor Vale from “Vicious”. V.E. Schwab sure does know how to make them…..

9.) You are Single on Valentines Day. What Book would you read? What TV show would you watch? What Movie would you watch?

Image result for the forbidden wish coverImage result for daughter of smoke and bone coverImage result for sweet home alabama

Well if I was I’d be reading either “The Forbidden Wish” or “Daughter of Smoke and Bone”, watching no TV (because I don’t know of any romantic type shows I’d actually enjoy), and watching my favorite rom-com Sweet Home Alabama!

10.) You are in the Book Store. All of a Sudden you get shot with an arrow by Cupid. What New Release will you love?

Image result for the valiant book cover

There aren’t too many new releases I’m confidant I will LOVE but one I’m a little more sure of is “The Valiant” because the main character is a female gladiator, which just sounds badass.

Spread the “LOVE'”! I tag you!

(As usual do not feel obligated to do this tag if you don’t want to and sorry if you’ve done this one already, feel free to ignore this!)

      No problem, I figured I would tag everyone since Valentines day is today (tomorrow when I did it)!
      I’m really excited to read Red Rising and I’m sure I’ll love it too, I did get a copy since Book Outlet finally got some in! 😁

    This seems like such a fun post Heather, thanks so much for tagging me. I’ll need to get around to this one soon or it will sit in my tags queue until June and then it’s a little too late to post a Valentine’s Day themed tag isn’t it?
    I love all your answers as well. My Lady Jane is such a brilliant standalone, it’s a favourite of mine as well, and I LOVE the Chaos Walking series too. It’s become one of my all-time favourite series by one of my all-time favourite authors! 😀
    I need to read Kingdom of Ash and Briars soon and oh I really hope you enjoy Red Rising when you get around to it, that’s another favourite of mine.
    Thanks again for the tag, and great answers as well! 😀

      No problem and that happens to me with tags too but you could always save it for next year (Lord knows I have tags sitting undone for that long anyways).
      I’m definitely excited for Red Rising since I finally got a copy from Book Outlet so hopefully I can start it soon since I know I will love it!
      Thanks Beth! 😁

        I’m going to try and fit it in in the next couple of days. I figure one or two days after Valentine’s Day isn’t all that bad is it?
        That’s great, I’ll keep my fingers crossed you enjoy it then, either way I’ll be keeping an eye out for your review! 😀

    Thanks for the tag! I’ve been meaning to read The Knife of Never Letting Go for a while now (my friend gave her extra copy to me a couple months ago). I’m assuming it’s good based on your description. 😀

      It’s definitely good, actually not just good. Amazing! Although I will say prepare yourself for tears!

    Thanks so much for tagging me! I did not enjoy Cruel Beauty unfortunately, but I was also coming off of having just finished A Court of Thorns and Roses, which was my favorite book ever at the time (it has since been replaced by ACOMAF). I hope you enjoy it! I’ve been meaning to read The Knife of Never Letting Go, My Lady Jane, and Red Rising…here’s to hoping I get around to it, haha.

      I didn’t much care for Rosamund Hodge’s other book Crimson Bound I’m going in with low expectations since I know I probably won’t like it either. I do need to read ACOTAR though and see what the hypes about there!

      Happy Valentine’s Day! I always feel bad for tagging so many but at the same time I don’t like leaving people out!
      And there are so many popular books I still haven’t read so don’t feel bad although I am excited to see what you think of My Lady Jane! 😁

    Thanks for the v-day tag! I’ve only read Daughter of Smoke and Bone off your list, but every single one of the other books are on my TBR and have been wanting to read! My Lady Jane has been waiting on me forever now!

      No problem! That’s the problem with books is that there are so many to read and not enough time to do it! 😊

    Thanks for the tag! This post reminded me that I really need to get around to reading more of V.E. Schwab’s book. I loved This Savage Song but I haven’t read any of her others for some reason.

      I liked her other books more than This Savage Song although I did still like that one, so I have a feeling you will enjoy her other books too! 😁

    I love this tag! So many great books. And you’re right, Red Rising was amazing so you really need to read it. 😀

    Is it cheating if I hold onto this tag till next year so I can post it on Valentines Day? LOL

    Not going to lie, the only book I’ve read that you’ve mentioned is Cruel Beauty, which I really liked.

      No problem! I’m glad to hear you liked Cruel Beauty, I read Hodge’s other book Crimson Bound and was in the middle about it but I wanted to give her other book a try too! 😊

    I still haven’t gotten my hands on My Lady Jane (damn you book buying ban!!), but I really want to read it! It sounds like a book I would love, sooo I do hope to get my hands on it soon. 🙂
    I adore The Knife of Never Letting Go, it’s such an amazing trilogy! I’m the same with Red Rising, I keep hearing about it but for some reason have yet to pick it up – probably because I want to finish some of the series I already started before moving on to a new one (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself).
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤

      I can almost guarantee you’ll love it, we seem to agree on a lot of books so 😁
      I really need to finish the Chaos Walking trilogy but I just can’t muster the courage, I don’t want me heartbreak!
      I finally got a copy of Red Rising so hopefully I’ll read it soon. I’m awful! I like starting series more than I like finishing them, I’m so weird…..

    A little late to the Valentine’s party, but better late than never, right? 😉 Patrick Ness’ book sounds awesome. I’ve seen the cover around, but I didn’t know it was sci-fi. Awesome! Thanks for the tag by the way 🙂


  15. Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews February 28, 2017 / 2:24 am

    Eep, so this is super late but thanks for the tag! I guess I have this for next year 😉 I loooove Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I really, really need to read Vicious. I haven’t read Red Rising yet either, but I’ve been meaning to for so long!!
