[Book Tag Tuesdays] The folklore Book Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful Frappes and Fiction! I’m not a Taylor Swift fan, although I do still jam to some of her songs. But I’ve heard nothing but great things about her new album so I’m tempted to pick it up.

Rules:

1.Link to the original creator: Ilsa @ A Whisper Of Ink
2.Tag at least 3 people.
3.Declare the rules and list of prompts in your post.
4.Thank whoever tagged you and link to their post.

the 1- a book with an ending that left you speechless

While overall this was an average read, the ending really took me aback. I wasn’t expecting it at all, and for that, it left me pretty speechless.

cardigan- a book that made you feel happy and sad all at once

I mean, this prompt would work for any Acevedo books. They can simultaneously make you feel happy and also sad for the characters. All of her endings so far have been really bittersweet.

the last great american dynasty- a book with a fascinating and extremely well-told story

I absolutely adored this book. It was so interesting to learn about the aquicorn society and also did a great job of bring up topics of ecology and balancing fishing and coastal industries with environmental impacts.

exile- a book you wish you hadn’t read

For one thing, I didn’t find anything appealing about this book, from the plot to the characters. On the other hand, it’s unfortunately turned me off of reading Sherlock Holmes-based or -inspired books, for now.

my tears ricochet- a book that made you cry uncontrollably

Books don’t make me cry (so far) but this one really pulled on my emotional heartstrings and made me choke up more than once.

mirror ball- a book that feels like it was written just for you

It was hard to find a book to fit this prompt, but this book seemed to be the best fit. It hits my love of robots trying to figure out how to be more “organic” as well as being lighthearted in plot and filled with hilarious and unique characters.

seven- a childhood book that makes you feel nostalgic

No surprises here. Nothing make me feeling more like a kid reading for the first time like Anne and her adventures.

august- a book that reminds you of summer

This book reminds me a lot of my summers as an elementary school kid, trying to fill my days with activities and things to do before school comes around again.

this is me trying- a book that deals with loneliness and sadness

This book lovingly handles the grief and isolation that children can feel when their parent is sick and unable to take care of them. At times, it was tough to read.

invisible string- a book that came into your life at exactly the right time

I’ve been on a graphic novel binge, and a bunch dealt with heavy topics. When I got to this one, I was in the mood for something more light-hearted and this was perfect; funny and very tongue-in-cheek!

mad woman- a book with a female character you adore

I absolutely love Fang Runin; headstrong, stubborn, fierce, loyal but also temperamental, ignorant, proud. She’s one of the most complex characters I’ve ever encountered, full stop. I yearn for more unlikeable female characters like her.

epiphany- a book that is haunting

This is a truly eerie book. You constantly feel the foreboding atmosphere and are always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

betty- a book couple that fills you with yearning

I love a pining coupl, and I find one of the best, most slow burn romances in The Witchlands series, between Iseult and Aeduan. Both stoic, emotionally constipated, certified romantic idiots whom I have been rooting for since they interacted in the first book.

peace- a book character you’d die for because you love them so much

A few characters fit this prompt but more recently, after reading this book, I would both die and kill for Yadriel. He is just the purest, most nervous cinnamon roll.

hoax- a book you thought you were going to love but didn’t

Raven was my favourite Teen Titan, so when I found out there was a graphic novel touching on her origins, I was so excited to pick this up! Unfortunately, it wasn’t what I was expecting but still it was a solid 3/5, so not a total loss.
