A book that you had to stop reading because you got second-hand embarrassment
I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman
It’s not that I stopped reading this for good, because I actually really enjoyed it, but rather that I had to take some short breaks in some scenes. This deals with both teenagers and fan culture, and both of those things can be really awkward and uncomfortable to witness, hence my pauses.
A book that gave you butterflies
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
I’ve mentioned how much I love this series a few times already heh. Especially this first book took me by surprise, because I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from it and oh boy, did it make me feel. I vividly remember I was mopping the floors while listening to this audiobook and having to stop because I was overwhelmed by ✨feelings✨. This had me feeling like a love-sick teenager for most of the time I spent reading it.
A book with a ship you will support till the day you die
Will and Tessa from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Considering I read this for the first time back in 2012 and I’ve not stopped loving them, I think it’s fair to say they’re my ride-or-dies. I really enjoyed their dynamics and how they were with each other and I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon. On this note, I believe a reread is long overdue, I need to fix that.
A book you knew you would love after reading the first chapter
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee
Look, I’m usually pretty good at knowing what books I’ll enjoy, but I underestimated just how much I would adore this before starting it. This had me actually laughing out loud from the very first page. I flew through this and it instantly became one of my favourites. This is honestly a fantastic book to read if you want to have a blast.
A book you knew you would hate but read it anyways
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
I was pretty certain I wasn’t going to like it from the very beginning, but I still read it because I had the audiobook and it was very short. It still wasn’t worth the trouble, I ended up reeeeally hating it and kind of in a bad mood (whoops maybe sometimes I let fiction affect me too much). I try not to be too negative whenever I don’t like a book, because I know something I dislike another person might love, but I just couldn’t stand this book at all.
Here are my prompts:
- A book that you wanted to love but didn’t
- A book that made you feel seen and understood
- A book that was confusing plot-wise but you still enjoyed
- A book that made you cry from happiness
- A book that you didn’t understand why it was so popular
- Amy @ A Fangirl’s Opinion
- Phoenix @ Books with Wings
- Carly @ Carly Books and Rambling
- Althea @ Althea is Reading
- Florence @ Miscellany Pages
As per usual, you obviously don’t need to do the tag if you don’t want to, but I’d love reading your answers!
