Happy Memorial Day to all of our American followers, I came from a family of veterans so I always appreciate the military/memorial holidays.
I wanted to give you guys a tag that we haven’t seen going around on blogs yet, so I ventured over to Book Tube. I found this book tag on Kate’s Book Date, you can check out her original post here.
1. The awkward first date – a book where something felt off. It wasn’t a bad book, but lacked that spark for you.
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. There was just something missing that would have sent the book into the 5-star range, because it was perfectly capable of getting there…
2. The cheap first date – book that turned out less than you expected
American Girls by Alison Umminger. This is an instance where a synopsis did us so wrong. It was nothing like what we expected and felt very cheap.
3. Well-prepared first date – better than expected
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I didn’t go into it with a whole lot of expectations, but it blew me away.
4. Hot but dumb – pretty book, not so hot on the inside
The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude, it was 100% a cover buy and it did not live up to the cover.
5. Blind date – book you picked up not knowing anything about it
And I Darken by Kiersten White.
6. Speed dating – book you read super fast
Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds.
7. The rebound – a book you read too soon after a book hangover and it kind of ruined the book for you
An Enchantment of Ravens… I even DNF’d it because I just got into such a bad funk. I will 100% be re-reading it first on my TBR.
8. Overly enthusiastic date – a book that felt like it was trying too hard
Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst.
9. The perfect first date – book that did everything right for you
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I could re-read that book 100x’s and just love it more and more every time.
10. Humiliating first date – book you’re embarrassed to admit you liked/ embarrassed to see reading in public for whatever reason
The Selection is still my guilty pleasure…
