Easter Book Tag
Easter is right around the corner and, although I am a bit early, I thought it would be a good time to do the 'Easter book tag'. I tried my best at giving answers that I haven't talked about already, and I would say that I was moderately successful at it.
Here we go!
RABBITS: A BOOK THAT YOU WISH WOULD MULTIPLY
This one is easy. Sorcery of Thorns, surprise, surprise. I loved this book, you know it and I know it. It did leave me hanging at the end though, and I would have loved for it to continue. Another book would be The Priory of the Orange Tree. Despite it being a rather chunky standalone, the author crafted such an interesting world that I want more from it.
EGG: A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU
I had to scour through the book's I've read to find one that I haven't already ranted about before. I usually talk about the books that surprised me in a good way, but I am going to go with something that surprised me in a very bad way to mix things up a bit.
The Wicked + The Divine sounded like it was going to be great. It got good reviews, and it was about reincarnated gods and goddesses which was right up my alley. Needless to say, I was shocked, and majorly disappointed when I ended up hating this series.
HUNT: A BOOK THAT WAS HARD FOR YOU TO GET YOUR HANDS ON
I rely on libraries when it comes to the books I read which, of course, ends up limiting the books I have access to. One book I have been wanting to read since its release, but my library sadly doesn't have, is From the Dark We Came. The concept sounds amazing to me, and I really want to read it.
I would also consider books that I am stuck on a six-month waitlist hard to get. I've had The Push audiobook on my waitlist for a while (I was 94th in line).
LAMBS: A CHILDREN'S BOOK THAT YOU STILL ENJOY
It is bit a hard finding a book that I haven't already talked about. I don't remember reading much when I was a child, and the only book that I have recently reread was Green Eggs and Ham. You never truly forget the lines in this book.
SPRING: A BOOK WITH A COVER THAT MAKES YOU THINK OF SPRING
It has come to my attention that, while searching for a book on my TBR that fits this question, I don't have a lot of colourful or flowery books. If anything they end up looking more autumnal than spring. The first one I could find though was The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels. I blame Demon Slayer for my fondness of wisteria even though I don't really like flowers.
JESUS: A RELIGIOUS OR SPIRITUAL BOOK THAT YOU LOVE
If you have read any of my reviews where books include religious elements, you know that I generally don't end up liking them. There are a couple of exceptions to this though. The most well-known being, of course, The Chronicles of Narnia. When I was younger I didn't realize the very strong religious implications, but now that I am older and notice it very much so, I am not bothered by it as much as I thought I would be.
Another book, although the religious are not as prominent in it, would be Vespertine, because it is Margaret Rogerson and her books never let me down.
RISING FROM THE DEAD: A BOOK BY A DECEASED AUTHOR
I am going to cut some corners here and go for a really famous book and obvious answer. J.R.R Tolkien is of course one of the most prolific fantasy authors and, instead of going with The Lord of the Rings, I am going to choose The Silmarillion instead.
It didn't even cross my mind to read this book, and I only ever did because I took a Tolkien class at university and had to read it. I had a blast reading this though because, as a history major, because the book was told like a chronicle or historical account, I had no issues getting through it.
BASKETS: A BOOK THAT IS IN YOUR AMAZON CART OR WISH LIST RIGHT NOW
I don't usually buy books as you already might know, so I am going to pick a book that I currently have on wait at my library. The most recent book I put a hold on was Gallant, as my library got a copy of it shortly after it came out, and I jumped on it before the waitlist got extremely long.
CANDY: A BOOK THAT IS SWEET
Webtoons, my friends, it is all about the webtoons. If I want someone I know I am going to love and that is going to make me feel all warm inside, I know to read a webtoon. Most recently, as in I am still currently making my way through Season 2, I started reading Castle Swimmer. Although it has its tense and dark moments, you will fall in love with the characters and want to protect them.
