A Classic Book That You Love or Really Enjoyed
Dracula by Bram Stoker
I think a lot of us can agree on the fact we don’t read many, many classics because we are usually forced to read them in school. I know that’s part of my problem! I’d rather read them for fun than for school! However, “Dracula” was one I read of my own volition and absolutely adored, so much that I bought my own copy. I found that the language wasn’t too hard to comprehend and it IS the original vampire story after all, it’s very eerie and thrilling!
A Fandom That You Really Want to ‘Join’ AND/OR a Hyped-Up Book You Want To Read
Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
There’s actually quite a few hyped books I’d like to get around too but I do actually own a copy of “Strange The Dreamer” now to read! I absolutely adore Laini Taylor’s writing style so I’m very excited to read her newest book.
An Author You Can’t Get Enough Of
I cannot get enough of this man’s books! I have loved and adored the three of them that I have read “Stormdancer”, “Nevernight”, and “Illuminae (with Amie Kaufman) and it’s all proof to me that he is a diabolical genius! His plots are so dark, gritty, and full of plot twists and on top of that his world building is extremely unique and immersive. I want more books!
Samoas/ Caramel DeLites
An Emotional Roller-coaster (this cookie was hard … so any book that made you feel more than one emotion, strongly. The choice of emotions is up to you)
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
This book covers all emotions on the emotional roller coaster! There is so much action and so many plot twists that I couldn’t help but be all over the place, it’s such a thrill ride of a book!
A Book Whose Cover Was Better Than The Story OR Vice Versa, Where The Story Was Better Than Its Cover
The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye
Sorry if you loved this one, I know I’m disappointed in myself for not loving it too! I love how it’s a Crown made up of Russian architecture and it’s just sooooo pretty but I really didn’t like the story…..
Tagalongs/ Peanut Butter Patties
A Book That Wasn’t What You Expected (good, bad, or just different, interpret how you wish)
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
In this case it was GOOD! I read the first book in the Lunar Chronicles “Cinder” and was not really impressed honestly so I wasn’t really too eager to read “Heartless” but it’s an Alice in Wonderland retelling/Queen of Hearts retelling so my curiosity won. I am so happy I gave it a chance though because it was so much fun to read!
A Book You May Never Stop Rereading/ Loving
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I actually am really terrible about rereading books because I have so many other books to read but I’m planning on rereading more than a few! I’d have to say the one I’m looking forward to the most (besides Harry Potter and Percy Jackson because those 2 are just a given) is “Vicious”. The characters are just absolutely fantastic and the story is as well, everything about it is amazing! I mean morally ambiguous super powered people, what more could you want?
An Awful Surprise.
Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
Another book that I REALLY wanted to enjoy but sadly didn’t. This is supposed to be a Blackbeard origin story so I thought it was safe to assume there would be um…pirates? Piracy? Any sort of pirate-y action? But nope! That was too much to ask for! All I got was a very mediocre historical romance, with ZERO action. I wanted pirates!!!
