I am so ready for the weekend.
I’ve been a bit on the busy side so I haven’t had a chance to read a book outside of our discussion book. I found this Harry Potter tag from here.
The rule is I can answer the questions, but none of the answers can be Harry Potter.
A book you wish you could have right now:
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas.
I have been waiting so patiently for this book. I’m at my breaking point. I don’t think Sept. 6 can come soon enough. Not to mention Sarah J. Maas has just teased me with her writing through ACOMAF.
A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals to be more than it is:
For me that book was A Study in Charlotte. I went in with really low expectations and came out thoroughly pleased with the novel. And I’m actually really excited for the second book in the trilogy to come out.
A first book in a series that got you hooked:
A Darker Shade of Magic! Man oh man does V.E. Schwab know how to write a good book. I still haven’t read A Gathering of Shadows because I have been crazy busy. But I plan to in the next week or so. Be prepared to get a nice fangirlly review after.
A killer book:
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
If you’ve read this book then you get why I put it here. It’s actually funny because I just started This Savage Song this week and at the very beginning is a Victor Vale quote and I just thought it was so perfect because, well, Victor Vale is a killer guy.
A book you found confusing:
Ruby Red by Kiersten Gier and the other two books in the trilogy. I don’t know if it’s because I read it years ago and I’m trying to remember how the crystals were supposed to work, but I can’t wrap my head around how everything just came to be in that book anymore.
Your spirit animal book:
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I’m choosing Truthwitch mostly because I get the connection between Isuelt and Safi. It was the best part of the book for me and I was constantly comparing their friendship with how my friendships are. Dennard does an impressive job of creating a strong female friendship in a book where they are barely together.
A book you found interesting but would like to rewrite:
The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas
I think this was an incredibly interesting book that had a really interesting plot. I do however believe that it could have been written with a bit of a faster pace and fewer crazy coincidences.
A dark, twisted book:
The Rules of Attraction by Brett Easton Ellis
A book about a bunch of dark, brooding college students in the mid to early 90s was everything I needed. Throw in an impromptu suicide and it kicks this book beyond dark and twisted.
I nominate anyone that’s a Harry Potter fan! This was a ton of fun and it really helped remind of some of the books I’ve read recently.
