Hello everyone! Long time no see, huh? I know I’ve been absent for a while, but job, college and now the Holidays have been taking all my time. Hopefully that will change on January when I *finally* learn how to stick to a schedule, as my December editorial calendar must be watching me like this rn:
Anyways… today I’m going to be answering the Evermore Book Tag!
As busy as I am, my world stopped for a bit when Miss Taylor Swift dropped another bomb on us with the release of Evermore, Folklore’s sister album and a freaking masterpiece.
I was sooo happy when I heard the news, because Folklore’s vibe was amazing and I really wanted more content of the sort. I loved folklore so much, that I did an original book tag based on the songs, if you want to check it out! This time I wasn’t able to do an original book tag, but here I am with Ahaana’s Evermore Book Tag! She made the amazing graphics of this post, so credits to her for that (and please check her beautiful blog if you can!) Without further ado, let’s start!
- Link back to the original creator’s post: Ahaana’s at Windows to Worlds
- Tag at least 5 people
- Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post!!
- Feel free to use the graphics in this post , but please credit back because they took a lot of time and effort to make (:
Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco – Thomas Cresswell own my entire heart. Intelligence is something SO attractive to me and this man is a genius, plus his personality is something else entirely. I fell in love with him from the very first time he appeared on the book.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas – How could I forget about Chaol and Celaena’s failed relationship?? It made me cry a river last year. However, they weren’t meant to be and looking back I’m glad the author decided for it to be that way… but still it made my little fangirl heart hurt for a while.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – I didn’t want to mention the same books from previous book tags over and over, so here I am with THG. This is possibly my favorite Adult Romance book ever, and one of my favorite enemies-to-lovers books as well. I loved the personalities of bothmain characters, their undeniable chemistry and how the author got me crying of laughter all the time. I’d recommend this to everyone tbh.
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen – Here we don’t see the main character reconnecting with her hometown, but with her culture, which was also very interesting to read about. To be honest… I don’t remember much about this book (you’ll excuse my fish memory, lol), but what I do remember is that I really enjoyed reading especially for the culture aspect. If you liked To All The Boys, you don’t want to miss this one.
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman – On this book, we read about the very complicated relationship between Aled and his mom, which is very abusive to him. This plays a significant role on the plot and on Aled’s character development and it is SO painful to read, but so realistic.
Sadie by Courtney Summers – I haven’t read many thrillers lately and I really need to. Sadie is a beautifully written book about finding the truth and bringing a lost girl home, and I’d recommend it to anyone out there who likes to read about murder/vanishing mysteries. Some people say it’s better to read this in audiobook format, and I really want to reread it like that soon.
I’d say I’m a very nostalgic person and everything I once loved in the past, I hold close to my heart, so no book here! (Also there’s the fact I almost never reread anything… which doesn’t allow me to see old books in a brand new perspective)
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas – I’m sorry but I can’t think of a stronger friendship than the one the Inner Circle has… they would literally die for each other, and the level of loyalty and respect they have for one another is admirable. *Meanwhile, my friends can’t even answer my texts*.
All This Time by Rachael Lippincott and Mikki Daughtry – This book is a literal emotional rollercoaster that played with my feelings from page one all the way to the end. Anyways, I loved it, because it was painfully realistic in the most original way. It addresses grief, depression, suicidal thoughts and more sensitive topics, but it’s also about letting go the things or people you think you can’t live without and finding your own purpose, which is very beautiful. You can read my review here.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab – Perhaps for the lack of a romantic subplot (it has romance, but it’s minimum), and the fact that I didn’t like Vicious as much as I thought I would, I didn’t have huge expectations with A Darker Shade of Magic.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin – I didn’t want to go for the most obvious option and say Six of Crows, so I chose Serpent & Dove since Lou is, in a way, a criminal on the story: witches are forbidden and if the Church finds out, she’ll get burned on the stake. Therefore she lives a criminal-like life throughout the book, hiding and lying in order to survive.
I didn’t read much when I was a kid (I was busy watching 2000s Disney and Nickelodeon shows, mind you), so I’ll go with Matilda by Roald Dahl as I watched the movie like a thousand times when I was a kid (and still do so once in a while!)
I’ll Be The One by Lyla Lee – This was one of my favorite books of the year. It addresses fatphobia and homophobia, and it has a beautiful message on self-love, acceptance and to live life to the fullest without paying attention to what people say about you. If you haven’t read this one yet please do it asap!!
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas – I can’t wait we’ll have to wait at least another year for the sequel to this book which I ADORED. Let me go cry in a corner until 2022.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – When I say conclusion I mean CONCLUSION. This is my least favorite off the three books (and I know it’s not an extremely long series… but you’ll rarely see me reading one of those), but even when I didn’t love most of the book, the very ending was very satisfactory to me. To see a country heal after so much pain and knowing Katniss and Peeta made it alive and together is so fulfilling.
That’s all for now! I only hope Taylor gives us time to breathe for a minute or two know… my heart can’t take all this art at once!
What was your favorite track of Evermore? I can’t choose between Champagne Problems and Gold Rush. What did you think of the album in general? Let’s talk in the comments!
