So the absolutely stunning Cielo over at Bellerose reads tagged me in this really cool Taylor Swift book tag based around her new album. And of course I am listening to it as I write this tag because is there any other way to answer these really cool questions.
I guess the only thing to do before I get into the questions is to thank Cielo and tell you guys to go check her out because she posts some really cool content that you should defo take a look at.
Also, all credit goes to Ahaana for the super cool graphics I used! I just couldn’t resist as they were so pretty.
Without further ado, let’s get into the Evermore Book Tag…
- Link back to the original creator’s post : Ahaana’s at Windows to Worlds
- Tag at least 5 people
- Thank the person that tagged you and link back to their post!!
- Feel free to use the graphics in this post, but please credit back as they took a lot of time and effort to make (that is credit to Ahaana, who is linked above)
Ok, so given the recent hype that this book is getting it must be no surprise to any of you guys that my choice for this prompt is Amari Peters from Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B.Alston.
I was on the blog tour for this book recently and trust me when I say that you genuinely cannot help fall in love with Amari, she is simply just an incredible protagonist and I can see everyone falling in love with her and her story when the book is released soon! I also cannot wait to see what she gets up to next.
Under A Starry Sky, Laura Kemp.
I haven’t talked about this book much recently but this book definitely has a broken relationship with Annie and her ex-husband. Of course she ends up finding love with someone else and gets such sweet ending to her story of sadness and hardship.
This book was full of love and the gorgeous welsh country side and I forgot how much I loved it until just now lol.
Ok, so I couldn’t pick just one so I went with two (I’m so sorry). But I had to go with Pride and Prejudice and Percy Jackson, because those two books will always hold a special place in my heart and I will love them until the day that I die.
I am also in the mood to re-read Pride and Prejudice also as I recently watched the 2005 version for the first time and fell in love with it all over again. It’s just so wonderful and perfect, plus it made me so happy and that is something that I’m going to need in the upcoming months as we go back into lockdown.
I really struggled with this one but I went with Clap When You Lans, by Elizabeth Acevedo. I know the two sisters technically don’t reconnect but the mother does reconnect with her past as well so it counts I swear!
I adored this book and found it so interesting to read a book in verse too as I need had before, it was simply incredible how Elizabeth Acevedo crafted two such beautiful stories of grief.
For this prompt, I’m going to go with The Cousins, by Karen M.McManus because it involves a suffering family relationship that led to something very dramatic and intense. I obviously won’t go into much detail about the plot but I really recommend that you read this book because it is full of twists and some really cool characters, plus there different POVs to help you get to know the protagonists better.
Another blog tour I was as well! I am planning on reading all of her other books too now, I was actually gifted them all between my birthday and Christmas so I have almost s full collection of her physical books.
The Devil and the Dark Water, Stuart Turton.
This book is a detective novel about murder and set on a ship with a historical setting and some really great female characters! This book is undeniably wonderful and genre-defying with it’s supernatural elements throughout the book which makes you wonder whether there could actually be something sinister behind the events of the book and not just a person.
A really great murder-mystery book with an absolutely stellar ending.
I’m again going to have to go with SJM’s series Throne of Glass and the ACOTAR series (sorry for all the acronyms, I’m just too lazy to type out all of the names lol).
I loved this series for so long and cannot wait to read Crescent City (another birthday gift) by her but I just feel like I outgrew her other two series and I honestly don’t really know why that is haha.
Girl, Woman, Other, by Bernadine Evaristo.
This book is full of really cool links to all the characters, with some being old friendships and others being related. But I just had to include it here, as it’s yet another book that I simply adored.
Full of interesting characters and, as I’ve already said cool connections it was such a delight to read (even the heavier parts of the narratives) and I loved how it was divided into parts and then to the different women who each had their own chapter. Ugh, it was just so good!
The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again but this book made me weep at the ending and I think that is all I need to say for this prompt lol.
I decided to go with The Switch, by Beth O’Leary here because while the initial summary on Netgalley intrigued me I hadn’t really realised how much I enjoyed contemporary romance and that is why it was an unexpected favourite.
Also, it was one of the first audiobooks that I’ve ever listened to and I loved the two narrators who narrated the book as they were absolutely perfect for the two protagonists. It was just such a wonderful book and it had me crying, laughing and squealing with delight.
I annoyingly can’t think of a book that I’ve read recently that involves thieves or criminals and It’s bugging me lol. So sadly, no answer this time.
Obviously there is Harry Potter and Percy Jackson but an under hyped favourite is Warrior Cats, by Erin Hunter.
Those books were absolutely massive in my childhood, in fact they are probably the books that get me into reading as I read them first and then HP. I even know the author so that makes them extra special to me!
If you don’t know what these books are they are essentially a series about cats that movie in the wild and are divided into several clans who each inhabit a different area of the land that they occupy and it’s just so wonderful!
The Tattooist of Auswhitz by Heather Morris.
I read this book in one sitting as I’d badly twisted my ankle and needed to chill all day. It is so incredible how the protagonist struggles to survive and even finds the love of his life at Auschwitz and keeps on loving her until they die, despite being separated for long periods of time. I guess the message is about love and hope in dark times and that is something that we all need at the moment!
OMG the list of this is endless as I’m so bad for reading sequels hahah and I don’t think I could possibly pick one so just enjoy the fact that I live on perpetual cliffhangers for all the series I read.
I’m going to go with The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan for the end of his Percy Jackson super centric series lol. I know it isn’t the end of the Camp Half Blood university but I haven’t read all of the Trials of Apollo so I can’t comment on those.
Let’s be honest, is anyone surprised by this answer though?
I hope you guys liked my answers to these questions and if I dint tag you, you are of course still welcome to do the tag! Also, this album is incredible and I may or be not be about to relapse into my Taylor Swift fan phase so wish me luck lol.
In the meantime…
Stay safe, stay healthy, and keep learning!
