Once a many year ago, McKenzie @ Bookish Things and Tea tagged me to do her own adorable book tag! It’s the cutest thing. I’ve never played Animal Crossing but I’ve seen it around. I’ve always wanted to play but have never really had a chance to. One day, I shall. Until then, this fun little tag will tide me over. Be sure to check out the original post for this tag on McKenzie’s BE-A-UTIFUL blog. You won’t regret it.
All righty then. Let’s do this thing!

As an English major, I’m a little ashamed of the number of classics I HAVEN’T read. I’ve read all of Jane Austen’s works, a couple Dickens, one Hemingway and a select few others but that’s about it. I really don’t know how my schooling managed to avoid all the big name classics, but as it happens, I’ve been missing out on most of them these past few years. I recently read Fahrenheit 451 but there are still so many classics I have yet to attend to. One I was hoping to read sometime this year is Frankenstein, probably during Halloween time!
I can’t say it’s definitively my favorite second book in a series, but it IS the first one that came to mind. A Court of Thorns of Roses was interesting but certainly not as engrossing and impactful as A Court of Mist and Fury, a book that I consider to be one of the best YA/NA books in recent years. The characters, the plot, the world-building, and all the crucial themes outlined in this book were just so well done that ACOMAF will forever be a favorite of mine.
Laini Taylor has a way of making her settings feel all kinds of magical. Prague seemed like a land embellished with pure whimsy after I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but Weep in Strange the Dreamer was a land made of pure fantasy and magic. The descriptions of this strange city only lent itself to my love of this wonderful book!
I have to admit that I haven’t really been doing so well in keeping up with newer releases. I’v been doing fairly well in buying them, but not particularly reading them. I have yet to read Children of Blood and Bone, Furyborn, Circe, Reaper at the Gates, and Smoke in the Sun, all of which I would think to be contenders for best new recent releases. I’m currently reading Legendary, and I think that it’s definitely the best new release I’ve read so far but since I haven’t finished it just yet to know for certain, I’ll go with Dread Nation.
The BFG was my first Roald Dahl book and I’ve had the book since I was maybe 5 or 6. Same edition, read several times over and over. Even though I’m an adult now, I don’t mind picking it up and flipping through the pages now and then. This is a book I’ll keep for years to come. I just can’t seem to give it up.
I feel like this one comes as no surprise, but Six of Crows is basically the definition of character. The characters are blessed with unique personalities, all of which are both endearing and intriguing, and the book itself is laden with character in its setting, plot, lyrical passages, and design. Hands down one of the most rich YAs out there these days, tbh.
I was a fan of the first book, but the second book? I started it in November of 2016 and I STILL HAVE NOT FINISHED IT. Long story short, I hate this book. Mare is terrible, the other characters are terrible, the plot is slow, and I just can’t do it. I plan to read the rest of this series, but first? I gotta get through this one. And once I do, I have no problem never reading or looking at this book again.
I read this book back when I was in high school. I picked it up because I’m fascinated with Ancient Egyptian and Roman history. I can remember that this book bothered me, but only because the material was harsh. Moran didn’t pull any punches in depicting living situations and perceptions back then. While I can’t say the book was perfect, I love it for introducing me to Cleopatra’s daughter, who I never knew existed until I picked this book up.
