As I've never done a book tag before and I do adore Taylor Swift and her 1989 album, I decided to join in the fun! I saw this tag over at Krystianna's awesome blog, Downright Dystopian. The 1989 Book Tag was created by Charnell at Reviews from a Bookworm, who is celebrating multiple milestones. Be sure to pop over and join the party!
Like Krystianna, I'm simply tagging anyone who sees this and thinks they'd like to give it a go! If you do, please comment with a link to your blog so I can check out your answers.
If I Stay by Gayle Foreman. I cried and cried reading this book. It'll stay with me forever.
That'd have to be Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It was like reading about myself sometimes and she is just so sassy. Cath made Fangirl for me.
Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I felt like I'd been transported to Prague, Morocco and Elsewhere. I loved every moment of it.
Oh, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. How everyone raved about you, and how it seemed you were going to be so much more...but no. I still liked you, but how it could've been love!
It's really not a case of "everyone" seems to hate it, but it's all I can think of at the moment. When I read Ticker by Lisa Mantchev, there were a lot of 1 or 2 star reviews, plus a number of DNF's. Me though, I adored this book. So much fun!
Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff's Illuminae! I would do almost anything to get my hands on a copy of this book right now. Steal it. Sell my soul. Name your price!
Nicholas Sparks. That man has made me cry much too much. I always said I'd run over his toes if I ever met him...and like a dork, I told him that when I met him. He thought it was funny, but did tuck his feet away from me!!
This one's easy! Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, of course. It saddens me that it's already been 8 years since the last book was released. I want to live in this world forever and ever.
Yann Martel's Life of Pi. The truth shattered me. I was a bawling mess for ages after I finished this book.
I don't have a particular answer for this. Honestly, anything that has a sex scene, I guess? I read erotica here and there but get all blushy when I read it in public. I'm a big fan of slash fanfiction, and I'm not embarrassed to admit it, but anytime I'm reading in public I try to hide my screen or I look around to see who might be looking. It's a weird thing of mine and it's so silly! I know I'm not the only one though, which I guess is good...but I really just need to own it!
I'm sad to say it's Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I loved it so very much but I doubt I'll ever finish the series, knowing what I do about Juliet and Warner. I'm glad to have been spoiled, because if I'd put time into reading it I'd have been so much more disappointed than I am now. Books would have flown! Yeah, I am not Team Warner in any way.
Phew! That was a workout! Don't forget, if you take part in this tag, please comment with a link to your post so I can check it out. And hey, while we're chatting Taylor Swift...are you a fan? What's your favourite song? I love All To Well from her Red album, but it's probably Blank Space or I Know Places from 1989.
