Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is going well so far. As can be expected, the weather here is typical fall: one day sunny and 81, the next rainy and 45. One never knows when its fall in the midwest!! I’m hoping I’ll have the chance to go outside and shoot some photos soon. Fingers crossed! Oh, and here is a link to the creator’s original tag. Here we go…
1. Sally –loves someone a lot and gets them in the end … The first book that came to mind when I read this prompt was the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. This series, of course, is love triangle central and I won’t give away the resolution of who Alina finally ends up with, but I will tell you there is a lot of wanting and of course, someone(s) gets a HEA.
2. Jack – a character that longs for more … For this one, I’m going to go with Stalking Jack the Ripper. Audrey Rose is always wanting more training, more cases, more reasons to voice her opinions about women’s rights. She is a perfect example of a Jack-like character and how she sometimes got carried away with her wanting.
3. Zero – side kick character … My new favorite is Jacob from Victoria Schwab’s City of Ghosts. First off, I loved this book. Second, Jacob not only saved Cassidy’s life, but thereafter he was her best friend and stuck by her at all times. They understood each other so well and help each other through everything.
4. Oogie boogie – a book with a wicked villain … I’m going to go a little off a limb and go with Geekarella on this one. I finally got around to reading this book this summer and it was so cute and so fun that again, I don’t know why I waited so long! So the ‘wicked villain’ here is Elle’s mom and one of her stepsisters. In this modern world, it is just disgusting and cruel to treat someone the way that Elle is treated.
5. Halloween town – a book with a creepy theme … Anna Dressed in Blood. I feel like I don’t need to do a lot of explaining on this one. The title is rather creepy in and of itself. I didn’t love this book, but it was set up for the sequel and by the end of the book, things picked up and I was intrigued by that ending! So maybe someday I’ll get to the sequel.
6. Christmas town – a book that left you feeling warm and fuzzy … All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover. In some ways, this book was a tough pill to swallow. At times, I thought I might be walking away from this book, which is weird for me because I LOVE CoHo. However, by the end, I was crying happy love tears.
7. What is this – book that took you by surprise …. I have to say Children of Blood and Bone for this one and here’s why: I was skeptical about the hype around this one. So much so that I almost didn’t even pick it up to read, but I’m so glad that I did! COBAB was so amazingly good and it moved so quickly, I was just in love with it from beginning to end.
So that’s that my friends. If you need some seasonal, bookish entertainment, then I tag you for this book tag! Have fun!!
