First Date Book Tag

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…

  1. Ahhh ACOMAF…I’m with you there. I love that it was so long! It came out when my town was hit by some random crazy weather that made us lose electricity/air conditioning for a very long week in May. It was such a treat to read. Not since the days of Harry Potter new releases had I gone over a book so many times after I had already finished reading it.
