Ever since Pokemon Go has been released, I’ve been glued to my phone, catching those little critters wherever I go and staying out for hours whenever there are lures nearby.
I just gotta catch them all alright? I’m not the only one who’s obsessed – my favourite Aentee @ Read at Midnight created the Pokemon Go Book Tag and tagged me! This tag and the gorgeous accompanying graphics created by Aentee are absolutely genius and remind me of my childhood! And what’s better than to combine it with books?
I have been reading ever since I was a little kid, so this one would be a hard one to remember. I’m pretty sure ever since I got my own Spot book I have been hooked ever since. My sister used to read me picture books even before I could read myself.
This one’s an easy one – Harry Potter is an icon that I will always love. I remember rushing to the bookstore and grabbing the books off the shelves when they were first released almost 20 years ago and eagerly waiting for my sister to finish her copy so I could read it! Can’t wait for Cursed Child to come out!
Those darn Zubats. I don’t even bother with them anymore, just like I haven’t bothered with The Mortal Instruments. I read the first 2 books but haven’t continued, and the fact that it’s such a long series with endless spin-offs doesn’t help.
Since I read Val and Aentee’s book tags which have mentioned Red Rising, I can’t get that out of mind so ditto. I loved how the first book had a Hunger Games style arena but set in space, but there was SO MUCH MORE awesome to it. Greco-Roman warfare set in space, this series is freaking epic. And it’s just one of those series that gets better and better each book.
I’m a massive fan of Rachel Caine and have read most of her adult series along with her latest YA release Ink & Bone (which, if you like libraries and diverse fantasy you should read btw), but I am still incredibly intimidated by the Morganville Vampire series. I have bought up to book 14 but I mean the series is still going at book 15 – that is a LOT of books! Has anyone else read this series?
The last book that gave me a massive book hangover was Me Before You. I stayed up reading it and literally could not read anything else for a while because I was numb from that emotional ending. The movie was adorable but I really did think the book was better.
My bookish OTP will always and forever be Rose and Dimitri from the Vampire Academy series. Theirs is a romance that shows not everything has to be perfect, that you can have other interests and be focused on your mission but also experience a heart stopping, life altering romance. Rose never changes herself for Dimitri and they are all the more better for each other. This is a couple that puts all other fictional couples to shame.
Fire-hot and fast paced? Everything about Rapidash and Ponyta reminds me of the desert, which is where Rebel of the Sands is set! The action in here was heart stopping and nonstop and I loved the developing romance between Amani and Jinn. Also there is mythical horse of the sands in the book. Nailed it!
I really enjoy the Percy Jackson series, so when Heroes of Olympus, the Demigod Files and all of those beautiful graphic novels were released, I was excited. I adore Percabeth and it’s always exciting hearing of their new adventures. Now if only excitement translated into actually picking up Heroes of Olympus…
I haven’t continued past the first book of the Grisha trilogy and I’m not one to read series/spin-offs out of order, but when I picked up Six of Crows, I didn’t look back. This book is seriously one of my favourites, those amazing ships, those Grisha powers, the Russian mythology and so many characters that are larger than life! This book is LOVE and I can’t wait until The Crooked Kingdom.
It definitely has to be Mistborn! Absolutely everyone seems to be crazy about Brandon Sanderson and I still haven’t picked up his books yet, while my fiancee on the other hand has read the first book already. I can’t wait to get into these series, but some of them are super long! I still adore the Hunger Games luxury edition released in Australia, those beautiful foiled edges, metallic print and the white covers. One day I will own you, but until then feast your eyes…
Definitely The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. When Aentee reviewed this I ordered it straight away. I mean the Indian mythology, Persephone and Hades retelling and gorgeous lyrical writing, what’s not to love? Can’t wait to pick this up!
I will read and buy anything that Colleen Hoover writes, even though some of her recent releases have been a disappointment. Lucky for me, she releases a book every year! Can’t wait to read It Ends With Us!
Can I please have Gemina now? After reading and absolutely LOVING Illuminae with it’s creative formatting, sci-fi setting, star-crossed lovers and amazingly witty writing, I have wanted Gemina in my hot little hands ever since. I can’t wait until November!!!
I tag anyone else who wants to do this tag, it was so much fun (and kind of challenging thinking of books to narrow down!)
Are you playing Pokemon Go too?
