Phase 1: Initial Attraction – A book you bought because of the cover?


The Merciless by Danielle Vega

I was waltzing around Barnes & Noble when I spotted that little beauty on the shelves. I couldn’t help myself, it was hot pink with a pentagram on it! How does that not intrigue you? It was actually pretty good as well as creepy, I enjoyed it.

Phase 2: First Impressions – A book you got because of its summary?

Rot & Ruin (Rot & Ruin, #1)

I actually get pretty much all of my books based off of their summaries but one that pops up into my head is “Rot & Ruin”. It had zombies and sounded like it would be full of action and some tear-jerking moments (which it was) so I bought it.

Phase 3: Sweet Talk – A book with great writing?

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between, #1)

While the story itself is pretty so-so, Tucholke’s writing is simply beautiful. Seriously it pulls you in and keeps you reading, it’s some pretty great writing.

Phase 4: First Date – The first book of a series that made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

Honestly do I even need to explain this? It’s like asking why I read the rest of the Harry Potter books after The Sorcerer’s Stone.

Phase 5: Late Night Phone Calls – A book that kept you up all night?

Dust & Decay (Rot & Ruin, #2)

I hate to use the same series again but “Dust & Decay” (Rot & Ruin #2) is the number one book that pops into my head for staying up all night. I remember I was so engrossed that I stayed up well into the early AMs, it was probably 2:30-3:00 when my mom came and asked what I was doing still awake. I shrugged and said I was reading, she told me to go to bed and I just kept reading.

Phase 6: Always On My Mind – A book you could not stop thinking about?

The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)

I’m a big fan of all things Middle-Earth so TECHNICALLY I never stop thinking about “The Hobbit”……

Phase 7: Getting Physical – A book that you love the way it feels?


I don’t really have any but I suppose my copy of “Dracula” is as close as it comes.

Phase 8: Meeting The Parents – A book you would recommend to your family and friends?

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened

It’s hilarious and also pretty inspiring, this book tackles mental health issues with a lot of added humor. I definitely recommend this to EVERYONE.

Phase 9: Thinking About The Future – A book or series you know you will re-read many times in the future?

BESIDES Harry Potter I would definitely re-read the Vampire Academy series, Richelle Mead is a fabulous writer and I loved these books.
