I was tagged by Dee @ The Bookish Khaleesi to do the Pokémon Go Book Tag which was originally created by Aentee @ Read At Midnight. I am among those who have become obsessed with this game. I play it on my way to work, at work, while walking home…I GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL! So let’s combine my two obsessions, books and Pokémon, and do this tag!
Let’s get started!
There are a number of books I could use for this one, but I think the series that kick-started my obsession for reading would by The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin. I remember being in 5th grade and my teacher introduced me to this series and I ended up binge-reading all the books within a few weeks. This was such a fun series.
I’m jumping on board with everyone else and going with the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. These books will never get old!
I would have to go with The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I’ve read the first book and thought that it was okay. It was a bit predictable and I couldn’t connect with the characters and I tried to start the second book but I just wasn’t interested. Maybe one day I’ll try again.
The Crossfire series by Sylvia Day is the perfect example for this one. It is a romance series that was released the same time FSOG was released and while they have many similarities, the Crossfire series is SO MUCH BETTER! OMG, Eva Tramell SLAYS and she is basically the reason why this series is so much better than FSOG.
I’ve heard such great things about The Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie, but there are TEN BOOKS in this series and I have a six book limit when it comes to series before I start to get bored. I am planning to binge-read this series soon and I am hope I love this series as much as everyone else.
Damn, there are so many books to choose from since I spend most of my nights up late reading, but one of my most recent favorites is One Day Soon by A. Meredith Walters. I finished this book at three in the morning and I was a mess. I haven’t cried so hard over a book since I read that book.
Again, there are so many to choose from for this one, but I’m going with Victor Fraust and Izabel Seyfried from the In the Company of Killers series by J.A. Redmerski. This ship is currently one the rocks and I am hoping these two patch things up and stay together. Also, please no love triangles!
Can I pick A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas for this one because although that book was long, it was still a quick read for me. The only reason it took me long to read was because adulting kept getting in the way. Plus, this book is steamy as hell and that ending was crazy!
The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover. I love my bad boys and fierce gals of Denver, Colorado and I am going to cry when the spin-off series, Saints of Denver, comes to an end because then I will have to officially say goodbye to all my children. *SOBS*
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I was still new to the fantasy genre when I read this book and I binge-read the first four books in two months. It was crazy how obsessed I became with this series, but I love it dearly now.
The Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. Full disclosure, I am mainly reading this series because Pierce Brown is HAWT. I think that is a perfectly legitimate reason for wanting to read this trilogy.
Every time I visit The Strand Bookstore, I always find myself eyeing this special edition that contains all of Jane Austen’s works. This book is absolutely GORGEOUS! I’m talking leather cover, gold-painted page edges, THE WORKS! I just don’t have room to put it because it’s so big.
After not being blown away by too many debut releases this year, I am not really excited for many other debuts. But one debut I am still excited for is Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the overall plot with a character that has OCD and agoraphobia sounds interesting.
My short list for auto-buy authors: Colleen Hoover, K.A. Tucker, Sarah Dessen, Jay Crownover, Sarina Bowen, Sarah J. Maas…just to name a few.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas! CAN IT BE SEPTEMBER ALREADY!
