So, first of all, thanks to Riddhi (Whispering Stories) for tagging me in this! Throne of Glass was definitely one of my favorite series (probably due for a re-read soon), so it’s going to be super fun to do this tag!
Let’s get started!!
Lysandra: A book with a cover change you loved
Honestly, and don’t be mad, but I kind of like the acotar cover changes! I’m sorry!!! It’s just that I don’t like people on covers, and I know it’s just a drawing, but it’s still…eh? I like the way they changed the new covers as well as the new A Court of Silver Flames cover.
Abraxos: A book that’s better on the inside than it looks on the outside
The Siren by Kiera Cass. The cover is kind of..eh? It’s not great, to say the least, and I guess it represents the book, but personally, I hate people on covers of books. Anyway, the story was actually incredible, and I loved it so much. The characters were easy to fall in love with, the storyline was great, and overall, it was just an amazing story with a cover that lets you down.
Erilea: A series with great world-building
Obviously, I’m obsessed with SJM, but Crescent City had amazing world-building in my opinion. This book was incredible, and I can’t wait for the next one to come out. I won’t spoil anything, but read it!
Rifthold: A book that combines genres
I haven’t read it yet, but I think that The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a mix of historical fiction and fantasy. I’m pretty excited about reading it so hopefully, it lives up to my expectations.
Damaris: A book based on/inspired by a myth/legend
I recently read Rise of Knight and Sword by Miriam Wade which is based on Arthurian legends. Honestly, this book is definitely not my favorite, but it does kind of follow the legend. Basically, the book is all about the search for Excalibur, with the same characters but with a twist. And dinosaurs. It’s an interesting book, to say the least.
Kaltain Rompier: A book with an unexpected twist
The Betrothed. Now, I didn’t particularly love this book, but I do enjoy Cass’s writing. I won’t spoil anything, but you can check out my review if you want more information on it. This was definitely a twist I didn’t see coming.
Assassin’s Keep: A book with an unreliable narrator
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. I actually had to read this book for school and I loved it. The narration was, yes, unreliable, but it was amazing nonetheless. Definitely one of those books that you have to read at least once in a lifetime.
Asterin Blackbeak: A book that’s got SQUAD GOAL
Harry Potter, the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, the Twilight Saga, need I say more?
Let’s start with Harry Potter. The golden trio? Adorable. These three stick by each other throughout seven books and it’s nice to see a friendship that’s so tight. Along with that, the movies are definitely some of my comfort movies so overall, I love this series.
Now, A Court of Thorns and Roses. The Inner Circle is probably one of my favorite squads ever. These characters will forever hold a place in my heart!
And finally, the Twilight Saga. I think the Cullen family is really amazing. Sticking by each other when they aren’t even blood-related. In Midnight Sun it also shows that they’re very important to each other and treat each other like family.
Terrasen: A book that feels like home
The Selection series definitely feels like home to me. I read this series at least once a year and it’s such a feel-good book. The characters are so loveable, and the story is just so easy to fall into.
Aelin Ashryver Galathynius: A book with the power to destroy you
A Vow so Bold and Deadly. This series has been amazing so far and I can’t wait to see where the characters take me in the next book. Thanks to Netgalley, I’ve actually read the first chapters from the characters’ points of view, and they just made me want the book even more. Yes, it definitely has the power to destroy me, but it’s definitely worth it.
Manon Blackbeak: A book that intimidated you
A Court of Mist and Fury. This book had been hyped up so much that it was honestly terrifying. What if it didn’t live up to its expectations? Well, I can happily say that it does, and it was amazing. I honestly loved this book, and in my opinion, it’s the best one in the series.
Rowan Whitethorn: A book that makes you swoon
Once again, the Selection. Hello Prince Maxon Schreave. This series is amazing, and Maxon really does make me swoon! He’s so sweet and he can’t even look at girls while they cry! Like, how adorable is that? He’s just such an innocent guy who wants America so bad and it’s completely and utterly adorable.
Chaol Westfall: A book that challenged you to see things differently
I’m going to say Heartless by Marissa Meyer. This book kind of changed my life. Cath goes from an innocent court girl so falling in love with a court Jester who is kind of crazy is a complete change from her normal life. I think that this book kind of shows that there is more on the inside than meets the eye and it’s really cool to see the hidden places in the world that we never knew of.
Fleetfoot: A book that you received as a gift
I recently received a copy of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue from a friend for my birthday. I’m so so so excited to read this book and hopefully, I’ll get to it very soon!
Eye of Elena: A book you found right when you needed it
The Alchemist. This book is spiritually enlightening, and it kind of showed me that my journey in life is different than others and I shouldn’t be a follower, but a leader. The life lessons that I found in this book were unreal, and I think it’s a book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.
Dorian: A book that is secretly magical
If we’re talking literally, then does the Twilight Saga count? Edward is secretly a vampire, posing as a human teenage boy. If we’re not talking literally, then I have to say that every book is magical. I mean come on, they are. Just looking at a book is magical!
