Elizabeth from Book YAbber and I are participating in the Harry Potter Spells Book Tag! What better time than to do a Harry Potter book tag during Pottermas! Emma from Emma's Bookery tagged me to do this magical book tag. Because I cannot choose Harry Potter for ALL of the spells, check out what I chose for the book tag.
An upcoming release you wish you could get your hands on right now
When We Collided by Emery Lord is my most anticipated book in 2016 that I am looking forward to. I fell in love with Lord's The Start of Me and You and cannot wait to devour her next book.
Favorite series starter
A book that gave you all the warm fuzzies
A book that made you ugly cry
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green had me bawling at the end. I had tears streaming down my face at like 2 o'clock in the morning. It's such a powerful yet sad contemporary that everyone should read. Just make sure to have some tissues near by.
Bookish hero or heroine you want around to protect you in real life
Sydney Sage who is a minor character in the Vampire Academy series but ends up as a major character in spin-off series called the Bloodlines series. Although Sydney is not as physically fit as Rose and is not up to par in terms of combat, she is highly intelligent, is a quick learner and is a fierce and strong woman. Because she hone magic, she can be deadly with her wit and vast knowledge about Alchemists' secrets.
A book you intentionally spoiled for yourself
A book you wish you could make everyone read because you loved it so much
A book or series you wish never ended
A book with an uplifting ending or messageThe Start of Me and You by Emery Lord is one of my favorite books of the year. Just because you lose someone, it doesn't mean your life is over. Even in darkness, there is always a light. For Paige she find that light through a person who changes her life forever.
A book you wish you could forget you ever read
Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster by Jon Krakauer is a book I read in high school for mandatory summer reading. Can I forget that I even read this? I was completely bored reading this book.
An author whose books always get you out of a slump
A swoon-worthy hero or heroine
A book that caused you to stop doing all other things until you finished it
A book that was painful to read (for whatever reason) or broke you
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson is a book that I read in high school and is a difficult book to read in terms of the topic. Rape isn't a topic most people talk about but Anderson's books are raw and never sugarcoated. These things do happen and it's important people to be aware of what is happening in the world. Anderson is one of my favorite authors because she does an excellent job writing about difficult topics and sheds awareness on them.
A book that had you laughing out loud
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard is a mashup of three different books. I wish the book is more unique instead of borrowing a bunch of plot lines and details from books like Hunger Games, The Selection and Red Rising. I won't be sad it if went flying out the window.
A book with a shocking twist or ending
A character death that destroyed you
Best series conclusionCity of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare is EPIC! Everything from The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices Trilogy are tied up nicely. Although the novel was quite lengthy, I enjoyed every single moment!
