WHICH BOOK, MOST RECENTLY, DID YOU NOT FINISH?

I can’t remember the name *hides in shame* it was on my iPad (which I have now gotten rid of). It wasn’t bad but my iPad was broken so it made it hard work to read but I wasn’t bothered enough to remember it so I could carry on.wp-1599692036426.png

WHICH BOOK IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

27209443Guilty pleasure……hmmm… probably Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn. It was flawed in terms of plot and maybe could have had more character development but I still loved it. It was a light heartened read which had a fun romance and a good sense of humour. Also I love superheroines so I was there for it. You can check out my review for more details.wp-1599692036440.png

WHICH BOOK DO YOU LOVE TO HATE?

Image result for i am number four bookOohhh…. this is hard because I either don’t care about the book enough to hate it or I like it or I love it. But maybe some of the ‘I Am Number Four’ books by Pittacus Lore because I had a lot of problems with it so I could talk about it for a while about all the things I didn’t like. So maybe that series as I could definitely write a rant review for it πŸ˜‚wp-1599692036426.png

WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU THROW INTO THE SEA?

My own πŸ™ƒ

WHICH BOOK HAVE YOU READ THE MOST?

Umm… I think I have only reread two books in my life when I was younger because I didn’t have any new books and they were ‘Puppy Power’ by Anna Wilson and ‘A Finder’s Magic’ by Philippa Pearce. I did love them when I was 8-10 (I can’t remember by exact age) but I don’t have them anymore.

But I do want to reread more books *look nervously at TBR*wp-1599692036426.png

WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU HATE TO RECEIVE AS A GIFT?

I would never hate a gift because I someone has gotten me it and I really appreciate it but ones that I have already got (like Sophie said) or books that aren’t in very good condition because I like to keep my books looking new (personal preference) but I will always be grateful for a book so I would never hate it.wp-1599692036440.png

WHICH BOOK COULD YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?

23437156Ohh.. dramatic!! All the books. I am sustained by multiple books and the idea of new books that I will love. BUT, one I could not live without is *drumroll please*….. I am going to say Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.Β I really do love it. It has action, romance, friendships and heists. It has some absolutely amazing scenes. I think the fact that I have been wanting to reread it lately is swaying my answers but ARRGHHH I do love it a lot.Β wp-1599692036426.png

WHICH BOOK MADE YOU ANGRIEST?

Related imageMaybe Passion by Lauren Kate. Angry isn’t the right word but I really didn’t like it. It kept going through the same thing and it kind of seemed pointless to me. I was so frustrated at the plot and I wasn’t invested in the characters either so it just made me not want to read it. I don’t know why I did to be honest.Β wp-1599692036440.png

WHICH BOOK MADE YOU CRY THE MOST?

18460392All the bright places by Jennifer Niven. This made me cry for many reasons; the mood I was in that day and the story. I was crying for a long time. It was a well written book and definitely gave you lots of emotions. I personally really enjoyed it but I know some didn’t. You should check out the content warnings for mental health and suicide before you read it.wp-1599692036426.png

WHICH BOOK COVER DO YOU HATE THE MOST?

Hate is too strong of a word but…

789652711250317Throne of Glass— the original one because I love the new ones and it just doesn’t look like a fantasy at first glance and I am not a fan of photography book covers and this wasn’t a good version to me.

The Song of Achilles— it’s not terrible and definitely gives of the Greek historical fiction vibe but because it looks like a textbook in a way. So I would have done it differently.

Thanks again to Sophie for tagging me and I hope you all enjoyed reading my answers.

I am not going to tag anyone today but if you fancy doing this tag, please give it a go and enjoy. And please tell me if you have done it so I can see your answers!!

  1. I’d hate it if I get the books that I’ve already owned which is why when my birthday comes I’ll just give them the list of books that I want to buy πŸ˜‚

  2. I agree with you about the first TOG cover, but I also really struggle with movie covers, because I am forced to see the film characters before forming my own visual ideas. My guilty pleasure book is probably Dividing Eden because I love it but it isn’t talked about much because it’s a bit simple. As for angry, I found myself really upset with the Luminescence books by Quoleena Sbrocca, because it was such a great idea formed off of the Dystopian trope, and was executed so poorly!
    Great post!

    1. Yes it isn’t my favourite cover– I’m so glad it got another cover!! Omg yes I hate movie cover as well– I like to visualise it myself too. I love that the Harry Potter series never did movie covers (it just has about 50 other covers πŸ˜‚)
      I haven’t read Dividing Eden but I’m glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes books don’t need to be complex to be good, they can just be enjoyable.
      Ah.. it’s horrible when you love an idea but it was poorly executed– such a shame!!
      Thank you so much Emma!! πŸ’›

  3. I absolutely hate the Throne of Glass cover with a deep passion it isn’t even funny. Like so bad that I haven’t bought the book but just read it partly from the Library. I have had some people give me copies of a book that I already have but usually they are different editions because my friends who give me them are from Scotland and I am from the US, but if not lending them to people to read is the next best thing I do. I loved all your answers in this post! Have a great day πŸ™‚

    1. Yes I don’t like it at all– when I first saw it I was surprised as it wasn’t what I was expecting. I do like the new covers though. Haha libraries are useful!! πŸ˜‚
      Yes I think it is cool to get different editions of books if you collect them and is sweet as they know it is a book you want to collect. And being from a different countries is amazing and great for friends to do. Yes that’s so true you can always lend books to other people!!
      Thank you so much πŸ’› I hope you have a great day as well!! 😊

  4. I agree with so many of these points! Like, gifts of course new books & not ones I’ve read before unless maybe I read it at the library or something & they were buying me a copy πŸ˜„
    I’m also the same with photography on book covers, it’s a bit weird because I always imagine them as different anyway :/

    1. Ah.. I’m glad you agree with my points 😊 Yes I prefer new books myself, yes that’s true some books you just have to own if you loved them. My mum doesn’t get this– she’s like you already read it why do you want to buy BUT I need it!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ yes exactly I like to picture them in my head and I love illustrations so much on covers!! πŸ˜‚

  5. Great post (: I’ve got to admit that a book cover that I hate is the newest UK versions of The Graces by Laure Eve. I liked the original cover for it but now it’s just plain black with the title and author on it /: which seems extra unfair when you see how amazing the US version of it is! Sorry I just had to mention that as it’s been bothering me for a while :L I do agree with you about the new Throne Of Glass covers being better and the The Song of Achilles one looking a bit textbook-ish.

    1. Thank you so much!! 😊 oh I haven’t seen that cover, it is a shame you didn’t like it. Plain black doesn’t seem very exciting. It can be annoying when the US has a better cover but you can’t get it. 😞
      Yes I much prefer the new thrones of glass covers πŸ˜‚ the song of Achilles does have another cover as well– I don’t mind it but I wish it was more like circe because that’s beautiful!! 😊

      1. I definitely agree with you on that. The US one for that book is so lovely and then the UK one is so bland /: I really don’t understand it.
        Yeah the new ones are really nice πŸ˜€ I’m not sure if I’ve seen the other cover for it but I do agree with you about the one for Circe being beautiful! It’s so eye-catching.

        Liked by 1 person

        1. I know it is odd when they are so different across the two countries!! And it can be a shame when you want the other!!
          Yes Circe is so beautiful!! I would love to have it (just for the cover and to be honest it sounds good)!!

          Liked by 1 person

          1. Definitely. Although at least it’s fun to see what all of the different covers are like. It’s just so frustrating when the one in your country isn’t the one that you’d have picked!
            Yeah I really want to read it sometime as I keep hearing how good it is and it does sound intriguing. If you’re in the UK I think you can find it in most supermarkets for about Β£4. You definitely could a few weeks ago anyway.

              1. It can be really fun comparing them.
                I just wish that they stocked more YA fiction in the supermarkets as well. I got the first Caraval book in hardback from one but the when the sequel was released it never appeared in store /:

                  1. I know, it’s so frustrating!! I don’t even understand why as a lot of YA books are bestsellers too. Yes it was a pain. Atm I’m hoping I can find Cassandra Clare’s newest book in one :L

  6. Hello! I’m glad that you did this tag and I enjoyed reading your answers. Six of Crows was amazing and to date I haven’t read another book/series that kept me so engaged throughout. All the Bright Places definitely had lots of emotions, especially the ending which I didn’t expect at all. Great post!! πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Sophie!! Thank you so much– it was a fun tag to do!! πŸ’› yes I love Six of Crows and would love to reread them soon πŸ˜‚ I heard they could be a potential book that follows the duology which is exciting!!
      I know all the bright places had a surprise ending for me too– I used to thing all stories had happy endings!! 😭 thank you so much πŸ’›

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Oh that’s interesting! I’d definitely be interested in a sequel or spinoff of Six of Crows and crooked kingdom haha πŸ™‚ yes that was why bright places took me by surprise! Most stories that I read have happy endings or at least a bittersweet ending, bright places was just… very sad and heartbreaking unfortunately!

        Liked by 1 person

        1. Me too!! I just love the characters so much and I trust Leigh Bardugo to do a good job as well so I’m excited about it!!
          Yes that’s what happened to me too– it was a very heartbreaking ending– probably the saddest I’ve ever read to this day.

  8. I laugh cried a little when you answered your own book for which you would throw into the sea. I felt that so harddddddd. I like to keep my books looking new as well, but I share your feelings as books as gifts as well. Wonderful post, and I enjoyed reading your responses. πŸ™‚
