This adorable tag was created by Read at Midnight (https://readatmidnight.com/2016/07/18/pokemon-go-book-tag/) and all of the images are hers. It is seriously the cutest tag I have ever seen and I couldn’t resist!
Fun fact: I played Pokemon Yellow back when I had a Gameboy Color 🙂
My starter Pokemon is Squirtle because I love water Pokemon 🙂 but my starter books were definitely the Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate, which started my obsessive reading and love for science fiction. I read a lot of books before those, sure, but Animorphs was special.
Pride and Prejudice. I just do not get tired of that story. And Pikachu is adorable.
The Raven Boys…sorry everyone! I got really tired of the series at the beginning of book 3 😦
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I didn’t expect to like it (typically I like more unique fantasy) but it just worked really well.
I typically like really long books, but they are definitely a huge time commitment. I haven’t picked up War and Peace yet for that reason…I have to be willing to devote all of my reading time for weeks and weeks and it’s hard to commit!
I’m trying to think of a book that kept me up in fear and I’m drawing a blank. But I do remember staying up until 3 a.m. ugly-crying to finish The Fault in Our Stars.
Katniss and Peeta, probably. I really like their relationship and how they balance each other out.
The Shatter Me series! Once I started I could not stop, and I love the romance in this series.
The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I’ve read all of the spin-offs so far (the Andrea and Dali novellas, the short stories, the Curran POVs) and I heard a rumor there is going to be a Hugh-centric spin-off novel (which initially started as a joke) that I’ll totally pick up if/when it ever gets published. Ilona Andrews creates such rich worlds and lovable characters that it’s impossible not to want to read everything about them.
The A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I hated the Throne of Glass series, so I was surprised how good her other books were.
All of the books I keep seeing by V.E. Schwab, mainly Vicious and A Darker Shade of Magic. I see these books EVERYWHERE and it seems like literally everyone has read them already; I was getting really tired of it but then they both went on sale on Book Outlet, and suddenly I’m really excited to finally read them.
I’d love to own all of the Penguin Clothbound Classics one day.
I can’t wait to pick up Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi–I’ve heard it’s incredible, which is all the more impressive since it’s a debut novel.
I have a bunch: N.K. Jemisin, Ilona Andrews, Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood…
Last year we found out that the release date of White Hot, the sequel to Ilona Andrews’ Burn for Me, was pushed back by two years, so I’ve been pretty frustrated about that. I’m also anxiously awaiting The Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss. And it feels like I’ve been waiting for The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin forever, but it finally comes out next month! 🙂
I tag….anyone who wants to do this tag!
