I’m here today to share a tag with you! I haven’t done one since December so I’m feeling kind of rusty so bear with me. I was tagged by the awesome Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts who created this tag with Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit all about the Lunar New Year. I don’t really know much about this particular celebration but I know it was actually on January 28th and (as found on Tiff’s post) it revolves around the Chinese zodiac, which based on the year you were born and a corresponding animal. There are 12 animal signs and they each represent different personalities. They created the book tag based on those.
SO let’s get started!
More people need to read this series! I know absolutely NO ONE else who has read it and enjoyed it as much as I did. And it’s really freaking unfair because I can’t talk to anyone about how awesome it is or fangirl over the hilarity of it so please, save me from my misery and read these books and then tell me how much you loved them.
This book has a big theme revolving around honor, loyalty and fealty and most of the characters take it very seriously. It causes some issues with the characters’ relationships and I find that a really interesting theme and one I haven’t really seen before.
This book talks about abuse and the author doesn’t shy away from showing the horrors of it in graphic detail. It hits the reader really harshly but I think if you go into it prepared, it can be a really wonderful and moving reading experience.
I haven’t read a romance since this book and that’s totally fine with me because I haven’t talk about my love for it in awhile. Yes, there’s instalove involved in this book BUT ITS SO GOOD ANYWAY. I don’t know how the author did it but she made instalove swoon filled.
I am currently reading the second book in this series and I’m obsessed (Spoiler for Monthly Obsessions). The main character is such a fierce woman and this whole world is inspired by Hispanic/Latinx culture and THERE IS SO MUCH SPANISH! IT GIVES ME LIFE!
When you ask me about a manipulative character, the first person that comes to mind is Morpheus. He’s a really complex character and everything but I really hated him because of how much a lying, manipulative ass he is. I don’t understand how so many people love him.
This is the last standalone that I read so I decided to pick it for this question. I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I was going to, there’s action, mystery and a bunch of funny characters so I’m a fan.
There’s nothing I love more than extremely detailed covers and Riordan’s are always so on point! I mean there are freaking ostriches with battle helmets on. Not only is it unique to just this one book, no other book will ever have a need for this cover, it also makes me really intrigued about the story line.
Most of the time for these kinds of questions I talk about Kenji from the Shatter Me trilogy because he’s absolutely hilarious but I was just recently reacquainted with a past hilarious fave character of mine, Janco. He’s literally absurd and just plain funny when he talks and we actually get to see his POV in this one which makes it that much more entertaining.
This book is coming out in a few weeks and I still NEED IT SO BAD! I’ve been wanting and begging and pleading for this book for MONTHS and it’s so close and I’m pretty nothing will manage to top it this year. (Don’t quote me cause there’ll be a lot of year left after it haha).
I wouldn’t necessarily call this a comfort book but this is the book that I’ve re-read the most in my life I believe. Every time I think about re-reading or going back to an old favorite, I pick up this book. It’s really short, I own it in physical so I just take it off the shelf and read it in one sitting and it’s always fun.
This is the only question I can’t answer because I haven’t spent a huge amount of money on a specific book or book related thing in YEARS. No, not because I didn’t want to but because I can’t. However, some of the changes in my life coming might bring about these possibilities so I’ll make sure to check back with you all haha
So that’s it for this post! I won’t be tagging anyone since it’s been a while since the Lunar New Year but if you’d like to do it, feel free to say that I tagged you. I’d love to know what you think of my choices and what some of your answers would be. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
