Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas. This was a very anticipated finale for me. And I think it was a good ending to the series (still can’t believe it has ended though) and I still think about it because of the immense plot and the fact that the characters are gone in a way *cries*. Who is your favourite character in this series?? Mine is Chaol.

Six of Crows was my go to with this question but it is becoming a TV show so that wish is coming true…  so another one is Spellslinger by Sebestien De Castell (you can see my thoughts here) I think this would be a great movie because of magic, throwing cards, and an excellent main character. I think it has room for being really cinematic and you could adapt it really well.

All the bright places by Jennifer Niven. I have heard this gets hate but I haven’t seen too much myself. It has a trigger warning of mental illness and suicide which people should definitely know going in the book. But I think I love it because I read it when I didn’t know much about suicide at all (in fact I heard quite a few just call it selfish) so this opened my eyes to it in a different light and I think it was written very well and so emotional.

Animal Ark. Did anyone else read this because between me and my sister we had quite a few (which was weird because they were neither of ours favourite) but they definitely give me childhood nostalgia. There were so many of them. The ones I remember most are guinea pigs in the greenhouse and cub in the cupboard.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I am always on about characters in books because I think it is so important to the story and this book did have great characters but it also had a really good plot. It was fast, dramatic and the dual POV was perfect for the story. So it was really easy to get sucked into the world.

Cress by Marissa Meyer. The third book in the lunar chronicles. If you have seen in some of my previous posts you will know I really love Cress (who is introduced in this book indicated by the title) she was a great character who was very shy. And the romance in this book was so good– I loved reading any bit with the two of them. They had a great chemistry and were the perfect opposites attract couple.

Six of Crow by Leigh Bardugo. So I would be bold enough to say you have either read this book or have heard of it. It is extremely hyped but if you like heists, found family, murderous characters and brilliant writing I would advise checking it out. For the reasons just mentioned I got adsorbed into the story. All the characters were GREAT!!! And the plot was really good too. I am truly obsessed!! (Wylan is my favourite, who’s yours??)

The 5th wave series by Rick Yancey. Now hate is a strong word so I wouldn’t say I hated the sequel but I really enjoyed the first book– the writing, the plot etc, but the second one just didn’t live up to my expectation. The story shifted quite a bit and I wasn’t in to it personally. And the same happened with the third one which was a shame.

  2. All the Bright Places was a really great pick for a book that gets hate but you still love.. I didn’t even think of that one! I adored the book but I know a lot had issues with it and there’s been lots of debate about the mental health rep.

    Also I’d never seen The Merciful Crow before but wow heart eyes!! Just added to my wishlist!

    Fave TS song? SO difficult! I think maybe… nope, I just can’t do it! I can’t even pick a top 5 I’m a mess trying to work it out right now!!!! 🤣

    1. Yes I really enjoyed that book. That is what I heard. I do think you should be aware of the mental health in it before reading as it is so emotional!!

      Yes the merciful crow is so beautiful. I had only seen it recently but the cover is amazing!!! I am glad you like it too ❤

      Haha picking favourites is a hard thing to do haha 😂

  3. Omg YES I’m so obsessed with Six of Crows!! 😍 Also I love the cover of Emergency Contact so much as well!

I have no idea what my favourite Taylor Swift song is though… 👀 There are so many I love!

    1. Yes such a great duology!! I need to reread– I miss the characters!! 😂
      It so beautiful!! 😍
      Yes it definitely has mixed reviews– I think there should be a clear trigger warning for the book as it touches hard topics but for me I enjoyed the story and the writing!!
      Yes she does have many great songs picking a favourite is hard 😂

  4. You Belong With Me being at the top of your list is SO. RELATABLE. I love that song so much; it’s my karaoke go-to. Along with Avril Lavigne’s Complicated, I hope to one day have the opportunity to sing this song from the top of my lungs to a whole crowd – and I hate the idea of being in front of a whole crowd, but I’d do it just to sing these songs, hahah.
    I’ve never finished The 5th Wave series, much due do the fact I heard very negative reviews for the following two books. It’s a major let down for me, because I loved the first book and I wish it could’ve been a standalone, so my idea for the series wasn’t ruined. One of my favorite things about 5th Wave is for sure the characters and I was surprised that a male author was able to write a female narrator so well! Typically, I’d expect some sexist remarks, but Cassie was pretty badass and yet, three-dimmensional with a lot of feelings.
    All the Bright Places is definitely a book I have mixed feelings towards. Even though I think my rating is about 4 stars in Goodreads, time has shed light in some problems in this narrative that I didn’t notice the first time around. I did feel conflicted about the ending, because it didn’t sound hopeful at all, and the death of the character due to a mental health issue felt as nothing but a motivator for the protagonist. That kinda rubbed me the wrong way, but I still appreciate the overall message of the story that what really matters is what we leave behind. I know there’s a movie coming out soon based on this book, and I’m excited to watch it nonetheless!
    Amazing tag! Taylor Swift is always the best, honestly! 💛

    1. It is such a tune!!! I could honestly play it on repeat 😂 Avril Lavigne has some great songs as well!! I mean belting those songs out sounds great– I mean I have a terrible singing voice and hate crowds too but the idea of singing certain songs to a crowd sounds like so much fun. So I can relate 😂
      Yes it should have been a standalone because the last two just weren’t as good. But I really enjoyed the first one too and I agree Cassie was a great character and I loved the narration!! So it was a let down unfortunately!!
      I do understand the mixed feelings and it is a hard hitting subject and it is a very raw ending. And I do wish it had trigger warnings somewhere in the book to let people know the subject it touches on. But I did like the overall message about you get to leave something behind but it is a very emotional read. So I do get the mixed reviews of the book. Yes I am excited to watch the movie too!! 😊
      Thank you and thank you for the lovely comment. You have got to love Taylor Swift– it was a fun tag if you ever want to do it 💛
