Hello readers! Am I postponing my review of House of Earth and Blood yet again? Totally – but in my defense, that is 800 pages long, and working from home has completely messed up my reading schedule, so hopefully I’ll have it up sometime this week. But until then, I’m doing another book tag for today’s post! I came across this tag on The Cozy Pages. This tag was created by Kristy @ Kristy and the Cat Read.
Tale as Old as Time
A Popular Theme, Trope, or Setting You Will
Never Get Bored of Reading
Epic fantasy quests – think Lord of the Rings – something that has a well developed story with multiple plot lines that all converge in one huge finale, preferably atleast a trilogy.
A Book You Bought for Its Beautiful Cover
That’s Just as Beautiful on the Inside Too
The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad was one of the rare books that I picked up because I loved the cover, and the story turned out to be pretty great too! Check out my review here.
A Book Everyone Loves That You Don’t
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli. I initially added it to my TBR because of the great reviews, but this book turned out to be such a chore to finish and I nearly DNF’d it! Quite odd, since dragons and magic are usually instant favourites with me. Check out my full review here.
A Loyal Sidekick You Can’t Help But Love More Than Their Counterpart
Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings. Sam is easily the best sidekick figure I have ever come across, and in a way turns out to be the true hero of the story as Frodo would never have been able to complete the quest without him..
Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, and Cogsworth | A Book That Helped You Through a Difficult Time or Taught You Something Valuable
While not exactly life changing, the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling is one of the earliest novel length books I can remember reading, and I believe, my first proper introduction to magic and fantasy. A large portion of credit for my love of reading goes to this series, and fantasy to this day remains my favourite genre.
A Book or Series You Weren’t Into at First
But Picked Up Towards the End
When I first read Caraval by Stephanie Garber, I wasn’t entirely sure about continuing with the series. It took a reread before I really started getting caught up in the story. Check out my full review here.
Be Our Guest
A Fictional Character You’d Love to Have Over for Dinner
Just one? Out of the thousands of characters I’ve read, very few speak to me, and it’s really hard to choose. But if I must, Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices.
