MORE TAYLOR SWIFT CONTENT FOR TAYLOR SWIFT’S BIRTHDAY.
Riddhi tagged me in this Red Book Tag.
This one is NOT as long as my previous Red Book Tag and has slightly different prompts.
Let us BEGIN.
- Link Back to original post Nashita @BooksandBrownies
- Thank the person who tagged you and link their post
- Tag 4 people because 1+3 = 4
(Taylor’s number is 13 and hence )
1. Red – A red book that you love with a burning passion
(This book is more pink than red, but I’m counting it. Otherwise this would be another gushy post about House of Earth and Blood.)
I have been trying to narrow down my Top 10 Books of 2021 list.
The Charm Offensive came and swept all categories.
I am in love with this book.
It’s one of the most inclusive queer books I’ve ever read and the romance made me BAWL.
2. I Knew You Were Trouble – A book you knew would cause you emotional trauma
There’s a reason I haven’t picked up A Court of War and Ruin.
I am trying to make it through the rest of 2021 relatively unscathed.
3. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – A book you’ve cut ties with
I’m unhauling my copy of Jesus Feminist.
This book offered comfort and perspective at a time when I felt alone.
I hope it encourages its next reader just as much.
4. I Almost do – A Book you know is trash, but you love it anyway
Every critique of the first Simon Snow book is valid.
I still love Carry On with all my heart.
That said, my last reread was a strange experience.
I’m just now noticing how often revolutionaries are villainized in fiction.
Criticizing institutions is apparently fine, but tearing them down? Heresy.
5. All Too Well – A Book you remember everything about
It’s possible I could recite The Love Hypothesis from memory.
(Please don’t test me on this.)
Ali Hazelwood has three novellas coming out next year and I AM STOKED.
6. Begin Again – A book that got you out of a slump
Since reading Little Thieves, I have been finishing books left and right.
Little Thieves ENERGIZED me.
This was such a creative retelling of a haunting fairy tale.
If Margaret Owen did a Donkeyskin retelling, I would sell my soul to read it.
7. Everything has Changed – A book you knew you would love at the first sight
I instantly fell for the paperback edition of Yaa Gyasi’s Transcendent Kingdom.
I loved Gyasi’s debut novel and can’t wait to dig into the spiritual meat of this new one.
Happy 32nd birthday to Taylor Swift!
I’m supposed to be watching a stream of Eternal Darkness.
I think I’ll relisten to Red instead.
Oh, I should tag some people.
Happy TS listening party to you all.
